ASTROLOGICAL VIEW 2012
Introduction: Jeanne Mozier is our most popular speaker, drawing the largest crowds attending our monthly lectures. In January of every year, Jeanne gives her astrological view for the future. This is a summary of her talk for 2012 with addendums by Lynn Koiner that are combined with material from Jeanne’s earlier January 2011 lecture.
Jeanne told a profound little anecdote: After God created the heavens and the earth, He asked – “Where can I put an Instruction Manual?” And so he created Astrology!
Jeanne described the period from 2008 through 2015 as a Cycle of Chaos. It should be noted that astrology does not run on a calendar year – cycles begin with an outer planet enters a new sign. As the last outer planet, Neptune, changes signs, many things that we know now will disappear, never to be seen again. In Theosophy, Iris White once said: “Appreciate everything on your planet now because it will never be this way again.”
There are two major forces active in 2012: Pluto in Capricorn’s continued revolution and disruption of established forms, as it squares Uranus in Aries through 2015; Neptune entering Pisces, causing the dissolution of boundaries and the awareness of Leaderless Mobs, devoid of logic and reason (no Air signs).
We may look back over the summer of 2012 as the Summer from Hell. Because of the increase in the Water Element with Neptune in Pisces and the lack of the Air Element, we will see the end of the Age of Reason and the beginning of the Irrational Age, albeit, it will also be observed as Creative, Poetic and Intuitive.
In 2012, four of the Outer Planets will transit 0 degrees: This is a Point, after the Ending Cycle, when Trends and New Cycles with New Activities and Direction are ready to begin. There is a perfect word for this state, inchoate, that describes a period after something has ended but the new is not ready to move forward yet. In the dictionary: “…being recently begun or only partially in existence or operation.” When Neptune is at 0 degrees, there is a sense that something has definitely ended in our lives but it is not clear what the new direction will be – it is inchoate!
Jeanne added that, as a Trends Analysis in Political Science and Political Relations (for the CIA, no less), she observed that Astrology is the best system for making these analyses because one can readily see the patterns.
Pluto will be in Capricorn until 2024: This is a cycle for breaking down our structures and institutions to molecular level so that the new can manifest. The Forces of the Establishment, Institutions, the Corporate World that are conservative and, therefore, inflexible, will crumble. The Rights of the Individual will be at variance with the World Force. Globalization must be shaped to respect the individual.
NOTE: I attribute this to the shift of the royal star, Regulus, from the royal sign of Leo in to Virgo, the sign of the common man. This shift occurred one day before the “Occupy Wall Street” movement began in September 2011. Ethics is essential with Regulus or you will fall from power. I have observed many power players with a natal or progressed planet at 29 Leo fall from power and even go to jail. Regulus will be in Virgo for about 2500 years so this will be a slow evolution in power.
As Jeanne stated in 2011, Pluto in Capricorn will make life very difficult everyone. The obstacles are still the old, crystallized forms – governments, institutions and corporations – but these will be crumbled down to their molecular level. Revolutions will occur to restructure these. These revolutions must come. Yet, with Uranus in Aries, genius will find its way through, despite Pluto in Capricorn. These obstacles will arise through the fears associated with transformations. As Alice Howell states in THE HEAVENS DECLARE, when humanity becomes polarized, a New Era is about to occur.
In the previous Pluto in Capricorn cycle (1762-78), this was a tumultuous time when institutions changed, the industrial revolution occurred, and there was the shifting of empires – most important, the common man became a player in world affairs.
In 1516-32, Pluto in Capricorn brought Reformation and Globalism as the globe was being discovered through explanation. This cycle commenced the unification of the Islamic world. Being in an Earth sign and Pluto ruling the underworlds, the Laws of Matter are impacted by this transit. However, very different from any previous cycle is the pervasive globalization, not just a connection through commerce and trade but communications via the internet.
We are likely to observe a tightening up of control upon the European Union member countries via the Euro. “Germans expecting Greeks and Italians to be like Germans is a concept that needs to be reworked!” Both Jeanne Mozier and our own, Edith Chuhta, have been expecting a Euro crash since its inception, after observing the Euro horoscope.
On March 11, 2011, Uranus entered Aries for 7 years. This is the beginning of 21st century civilization and culture. This will begin to define contemporary society. While this transit can bring catastrophes that impact the globe, it is at time of genius, new ideas, new concepts, inventive and inspirational, impulsive, fighting against injustice. With Uranus, the upheavals will come out of nowhere. There will be Earth changes, solar flares and volcanic activity. The disruptions and upheavals occur so that the new can be born about of rubble. This is the true force behind the revolutions.
The Great Uranus-Pluto transit revolts against established structures. It will be exact for the first time in 2012 so we will see how much more dramatic this square can be. This Transiting Square will be exact twice in 2012 (June 24 & September 17), twice in 2013 (May 20 & November 1), twice in 2014 (April 21 & December 15) and once in 2015 (March 6) – that’s 7 times in 3 years! We will all be challenged to let go of the old forms – when the universe tells you to get out – heed the warning and get out!
The current Uranus-Pluto transit is the First Square of a Conjunction from 1965-66 – the Great Cultural Revolution — not just in China but globally. In Virgo, the new energy affected day-to-day life. Historians say that the social/cultural changes that commenced in the late 1960s became integrated into society but the mid-1970s. This is the first challenge to this previous energy. Look for the Epicenter of the upheavals to appear in Russia. With 10% of US on anti-depressants, Jeanne suggests, in good humor, to buy pharmaceutical stocks!
NOTE: With 0 degrees Capricorn on the Ascendant, Japan experienced its catastrophe with Uranus at 0 Aries.
Look to the first exact square on June 24 2012 to produce earth disasters due to imbalances on the planet – a dramatic, natural disaster followed by outpouring of compassion. The compassion is due to Neptune in Pisces and many people, now more in tune with multi-dimensional realities, will predict this.
Jeanne predicts that some Global leader will communicate to the masses around June 24, with the first Uranus-Pluto square – and, in 14 weeks, the square occurs on September 18-19. This Square is the most dramatic and damaging of all seven squares since Pluto is Station, or sitting still, when this happens at 6 degrees of Aries-Capricorn. Great chaos leads to the next step. The Pluto-Uranus square is the culmination of a cycle beginning in 1965-1966 with the Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo. This was the time of the great rebellion in this country, instigating changes that ultimately became integrated into society by 1975 (David Frumm).
NOTE: In 1986-1987, Pluto was semi-square to Uranus. This was a period of revolutions, the exposure of former Nazis and scandals involving covert activities.

Neptune first entered the sign of Pisces during the summer of 2011. It is now in Pisces through January 2026! Mass consciousness is ruled by Neptune – the Neptunian hardware has penetrated everywhere with its transit through Aquarius. This transit will bring radically new ways that we can solve problems of everyday life. Reality is broken, as Neptune leaves the Rational Air sign of Aquarius and enters a Water sign, a sign with no sense of boundaries! The veil between the Seen and Unseen will become more tenuous. Rational people will be able to hold onto shreds of reality. When such people say that they have the answer, they have no clue – trust and take care of your self!
From April 4 through August 5, 2011, there was a preview of the Neptune cycle – a cycle that began in 1862. As with all final phases, you harvest what you have sown in the past. Fairy tales were developed in the last Neptune in Pisces cycle. Jeanne stated that Neptune in Pisces with no other outer planets in Air signs, the Age of Reason will vanish. You will not miss this shift – you will FEEL IT! She warned that, with this transit, those who have a very tenuous grip upon reality may very well lose it.
LYNN: During the summer of 2011, I had four acquaintances call me from what they described as the Funny Farm. Through a sense of isolation and social interaction with realistic people, they just lost their grip upon reality. Yet, during 2011, we all became aware of the compassion and charity that manifested around the holidays when strangers paid for “Lay-Away” gifts – and it soon burst into a wave of charity. Typically, people are less charitable during the hard times but this changed as Neptune in Pisces peeked into our consciousness.
Since Neptune’s discovery – 1) accumulation of a tremendous knowledge via psychology about ourselves, how human beings work – and we did nothing with the knowledge! Only the advertisers and political consultants use it for their selfish ends. The ability for people to think in the abstract came with Neptune’s discovery. Neptune was last in Pisces from 1848 through1862. We find that 1848 was a transformational year of revolution sweeping Europe by the common man. The youth will start the revolution because there is no place for them in the working world with older ones working longer and retiring later.
Pot will seem tame as pharmaceutical soups take over. Escape, withdrawal and boundaries withdraw due to speed that people are able to connect instantly. Utopian philosophies began in the last cycle and they will re-emerge in this new cycle. At that time, with Neptune in the sign of universal compassion, Karl Marx writings showed a great concern for the poor and the working class and working small children in sweat shops. The political regimes and dictatorships that developed from this were not what Marx had in mind.
Utopian philosophies will unfold from a great hunger for something to believe in, something that explains the new Neptunian energies pouring onto the planet. Not a problem for those of us with a long history of metaphysical studies but deeply problematic for the religious Fundamentalist.
Consciousness comes to the surface – the veil between the conscious and unconscious will be very tenuous — but it will also be too easy to absorb negative matter. Fact checking may be non-existent. Even now, e-mail posts occur daily that have no basis in fact. Anyone can say anything and many will believe it without question. Even when I urge them to check it out on www.scopes.com, the refused to do this because it is something that they want to believe. It is essential that we develop an internal check about this new reality. After it is over, only then do people become aware of the delusions they held. Yet, a great Renaissance in art will occur.
New Souls born around 1988-1991 are now adults and bringing in the new energies. I remember this period when I sensed the speeding up of the vibration of the Earth’s etheric body. This was most unsettling for many people who experienced “vision flux,” a condition actually described by an eye doctor who had many patients coming in asking about seeing colors, pink and violet – but there was nothing wrong with their eyes! These new Souls came in with and are imbued with this energy. It was a time of dissolving structures and these Souls will be called to reform and bring in the newer structures. How do we fit into the global economy? The New Souls can create this.
Neptune in Pisces will also manifest great Spiritual Delusions. As Jeanne says, it marks the End of the Age of Reason (the Air signs). Rational people will fare better and be more able to “hold onto shreds of reality.” Many will feel seized by the power of God due to Neptune in Pisces. People who do not believe in psychic energy are in for a shock, especially when they too have visions. Learning how to tune out this incoming Neptunian flow will be important, since we do not want this to impact or interfere with our daily routines. If it is too much, more people will look for escapes – chemicals, virtual reality experiences, living in fantasy worlds with “increasing levels of detail,” and some others will get “drunk on God” – something even worse than alcoholism! When our world seems to be blowing apart at the seams, many will want to just tune out. And, our world will be shrinking due to the speed of connectivity. Neptune rules states of mind – the dream world, the meditative, inspired and even confused states of mind. Even those with clear purposes will become confused at times – what is real and what is not!
Find ways to protect yourself, to tune out or block the negative energies. These can be all too readily absorbed during the transit of Neptune in Pisces. Find your “Safe Place.”
LYNN: Mystic Curio, run by a man who graduated from the University of Maryland, sells High John the Conqueror oil in Port Charlotte, Florida. I find this to be a powerful protector when applied to the base of the spine and the back of the neck. I first met Richard in New Orleans where his family had been making these oils for years. He moved to Port Charlotte after Katrina. He has such wonderful energies and, when in New Orleans, he was always rescuing animals and baby birds.
Yet, in the midst of the chaos, there will be unlimited creative energy available but chaotic. Remember, creative people are not always rational so irrational is not always a bad thing. Transpersonal experiences can transform your life but only if you know how to use the incoming energy. New forms are not ready yet but they are only incubating now — not all solutions will be workable in the beginning of this cycle. The new forms will not manifest until after 2015.
While Neptune is Pisces can give a boost to the pharmaceutical companies, promoting their new drugs. These might even further contribute to the madness of a boundary-less society, especially those hanging onto reality by their finger tips.
Yet, there will be great studies in ESP and the science of metaphysical philosophy will become a proven fact. The “mystics” in the world can threaten the established forms.
The refugee situation will worsen with Neptune in Pisces. Haitians are now going into the Brazilian Amazon. Africa’s draughts and terrorist regimes create mass migrations. Population shifts, trail of tears with Indians relocations, massive shifts triggered by natural disasters and rising water have occurred in the past.
Delusions are not just spiritual. Watch where your money is going! If someone tells you that they have the answer, they too are delusional. Avoid gurus and leaders who say that they have these answers to our problems. Watch out for those who manipulated the masses through fear, “excitement” and agitation – agitating and manipulating the minds of others who choose not to think for themselves. You hear these types on radio and television all the time. They are just looking for ratings! Even Nancy Grace has gone to extremes in exciting people when there is no real news to fuel her program.

Much of this (fear and manipulating through fear) will fully manifest when Saturn enters Scorpio on October 5-6, 2012. Historically, people experience fear, a fear the usually does not come to pass. People easily become agitated and manipulated by the fear mongers who gain popularity and even money from inspiring fear. When this occurred in the mid-1950s, you had Joseph McCarthy spewing his theory that there was a Communist in every corner – you best friend, your neighbor, could be a communist who wants to over-throw the country. The first nuclear submarine was launched and “duck-and-cover” was practiced by school children, in case there was a nuclear attack. And, racial unrest made white people afraid – racial equality, human equality, is nothing to fear!
In September 1983-1985, Saturn in Scorpio brought a real fear – AIDS. The irrational fear was that people could contract this disease with any contact with a gay person or a person with AIDS. The publicity lead to the “milk carton” children – children became afraid that their face would one day appear on a milk carton and they would never be seen again. These photos were eventually removed.
New fears will manifest at the end of 2012 through the summer of 2015. Fear and irrational fears combined with self-doubt will make is easier for “the dark forces” (a New Age term) to move and manipulate mobs. Stay conscious; stay in control!! There is great danger with the mob mentality.
The sign of Saturn’s transit shows us what lessons we are to learn. Of course, it does not mean that we learn them. The lessons of Saturn in Libra were about relationships, civility, getting along, and marriage issues. Many states are wrestling with gay marriage issues. The lessons of Scorpio are around sex, power, and healing. It is about manipulating power and the covert use of power. It is about how to manipulate mass consciousness. It rules points of crises and reorientation – you cannot be powerful until you can own your dark side. The tendency is to merge into something greater than Self without giving your personal power away.
In Scorpio, toxins and poisons can have an environmental impact. There may be covert wars and financial manipulations, as with Iran-Contra in the 1980s. Assassinations occur under Saturn in Scorpio, as well as political exiles. Sexually based violence may increase, especially against gays. With Pluto, it exacerbates the death of forms … a way of life, as well as losses in general. Factors in alchemy, genetics, creating life forms are ruled by this sign.

Jupiter has been in the sign of Taurus since June 2011 – slow solid economic growth, real estate getting better, stocks growing, $ improving – until June 2012. With Jupiter in Taurus, people have been returning to the malls. Christmas shopping exceeded expectations in December 2011. It is better to invest in long term benefits, such as fixing up house.
Jupiter will enter the sign of Gemini in June 2012 – talking and connecting will be the theme. This is the only rational, mental energy manifesting at this time but it is only a short-term interest. Many will see their network of friends as an important asset. People will need this network for security as boundaries dissolve.

GOOD NEWS — The New Humanity Coming: It is here already because it started in 1988-1993 with the Mutation in Consciousness. These souls are already here, capable of vibrating to the new energies, and incoming souls will be imprinted with new consciousness. These children are very different. They are now turning 18-24 and going out into the world. The Neptune in Libra folks (born in the 1940s) can prepare the way for these new souls. Yet, these souls are being condemned to exist in the old forms, medicated or medicated with technology.
With 150 million souls coming in each year, we are getting close to critical mass – developing new forms. Globalization is inevitable – if not, find yourself a nice museum society that lives in the past. Jeanne feels that we will need a global regulating body to handle this.
Neptune and its sign shift will have a powerful impact upon fashion, the arts and entertainment. Jeanne predicts that the new art and fashion may have an alien-to-fairy look. Art captures the collective vision, elevating the collective vision to a new level. Projecting into the future, movies will go digital and be streamed into individual homes. Former movie theaters will morph into “palaces” of entertainment where live or big screen events occur.
Upcoming economic concerns: 1) How to take care of the people who have no place in the New Economy, 2) Health and Aging, 3) People not retiring and staying in the work force, 4) the impact of epidemics and disasters upon world economies.
• In 1848, there was a Uranus-Pluto alignment in Aries and Neptune entered Pisces, very similar to what we are experiencing now. At that time, revolution sweep across Europe with a revolt in Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Milan, Rome and Warsaw. In the U.S., the war with Mexico ended. Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery and championed the Underground Railroad. Arab Spring is Neptune in Pisces but, as you remove dictators (secular leaders), clans and tribes take over. It is Islam unifies these people.
• With Uranus in Aries, Cuba will open by 2013, affecting Florida economically in a very dramatic way as money moves back to Cuba.
• Pakistan, Palestine, UK, Greece and Russia all impacted by 2011-12 square and Neptune.
• In Korea, the US will be giving up control of South Korea militarily in 2012.
• In the U.S., Obama has the best looking chart. BUT, he has to let Hilary become Vice President. His Moon is very strong so that women will be a great to help him. In the upcoming election, Mercury will Station Retrograde at that time. As with the Bus-Gore election, there will be crooked dealings, causing the election to fall into dispute. With a retrograde administration, as with the Obama inauguration, nothing works the first time.
• Jeanne predicts a very troubled Olympics in England.
THE NEPTUNE FACTOR:
In 1984, Stan Barker wrote a fascinating book on Neptune, THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES. As Neptune moved back and forth from Aquarius to Pisces in 1847-48, the concerns of women came to the forefront, with the Women’s Rights Convention of 1848. Historically, this transit is associated with women, water, spirituality/religion, nursing and health care/rights and dissolution. The last period lasted from 1847 to 1861.
• The American Red Cross was conceived and Florence Nightingale found the world’s first school of nursing
• A religious revival swept across America
• Pope Pius IX authorized the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, bring a female force into an all-male Christianity
• Arthurian legends became the subject matter of William Morris, Alfred Tennyson and Richard Wagner
• The Mormons followed the Archangel Maroni to Salt Lake City, founding their permanent Kingdom of God
• The American Bible Society provided free Bibles to every poor family in America
• Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin, as well as many other books by Mark Twain and others on this topic; Abolitionist, John Brown, made his ill-fated raid upon Harper’s Ferry, making him the New Saint in America. NOTE: I grew up across the street from Uncle Tom’s Cabin and this building is still there.
• Gold was discovered in the West, specifically in California, but it was found in many other States as well
• Spiritualism became the vogue with such mediums as the Fox Sisters in New York; HP Blavatsky began her studies that would result in the founding of the Theosophical Society, an organization that was “to form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color.”
• This was a cycle when the unity of the United States was threatened due to the issue of slavery – the threat of dissolution loomed.
In a much earlier Neptune in Pisces cycle, we find the Salem Witch Hunts which coincided with a societal fascination with séances, mediumship and the occult.
NOTE: The last Kaye Shinker has an article that gives historical events of Neptune in Pisces on page 11 of the latest NCGR Memberletter.
