Hyperinflation Part 1
As I pointed out in a previous newsletter, the worst periods of inflation, going back to the
Roman Empire, have occurred under Saturn-Uranus or Saturn-Neptune oppositions, and sometimes hard angles from Pluto have been involved.
Saturn-Neptune oppositions occur every 36 years on the average; Saturn-Uranus oppositions occur every 45 years. Planets are said to be in opposition when, from our perspective on Earth, they are 180 degrees apart, putting we earthlings between them. The Saturn-Uranus opposition brings down whatever entrenched Saturnian structure is ripe to fall.
What is called the Hyperinflation of the
1923 began in 1915 under a conjunction of Saturn and Pluto. It built up slowly but steadily during 1917 under a Saturn-Neptune opposition, and then gained momentum 1918 to 1921 under a series of Saturn-Uranus oppositions, to climax in 1923. Weimar Republic
An eyewitness said, "It was horrible. Horrible! Like lightening it struck. No one was prepared. You cannot imagine the rapidity with which the whole thing happened. The shelves in grocery stores were empty. You could buy nothing with your paper money."
From 2006-2007, Saturn opposed
Neptune, and from 2008 through 2010 we have a series of Saturn-Uranus oppositions moving to a T square to Pluto. So economic predictions of hyperinflation is supported by the astrological history of past hyperinflations.
If you've been doing your family's shopping for at least ten years, you have probably noticed that food prices have doubled or even tripled. This slow inflation has been going on since the creation of the Federal Reserve in December 1913. What you could buy then for a dollar costs around $100 today.
Hyperinflation would mean a 100 dollar bill quickly becomes worth more as toilet paper than money.
What has me revisiting this depressing subject is an article online by economist John Williams (www.shadowstats.com) Here's the opening paragraph of his article titled "Hyperinflation Special Report" dated April 8, 2008:
economy is in an intensifying inflationary recession that eventually will evolve into a hyperinflationary great depression. Hyperinflation could be experienced as early as 2010, if not before, and likely no more than a decade down the road. The U.S. government and Federal Reserve already have committed the system to this course through the easy politics and a bottomless pocketbook, the servicing of big-moneyed special interests, and gross mismanagement." U.S.
The last of five exact Saturn-Uranus oppositions will occur in July 2010. If the past is prologue, we can expect hyperinflation to peak around the end of 2012.
December 2012—famous for "end of the world" prophesies—marks the tightening of a Uranus-Pluto square that will dominate till at least 2018, and which, based on past history, can be expected to bring revolutionary transformations, as detailed in previous articles by me.
Economist John Williams' prediction of hyperinflation is supported by astrology but with a joker in the deck: Uranus, bringer of unprecedented surprises. Around the end of May 2010 the national mood of public opposition to the ruling oligarchy will change as Uranus (conjunct Jupiter) moves from easy-going Pisces into Mars-ruled Aries, and with Pluto and Saturn forming a grand cross to the Fed's natal Sun-Pluto opposition.
Economist, Henry C. K. Liu, defined the joker when he said, "What we will have going forward is not Weimar Republic type price inflation, but a financial profit inflation…inducing the public to invest what remaining wealth they still hold only to lose more of it at the next market meltdown which will come when the profit bubble bursts."
