Oner Doser – Predictions for 2020 (part 1)

Comet moving passing planet earth

The sunspots are seen on the sun’s surface with 11 years periods. These spots are the symptoms of the electromagnetic activity in the depths of the sun. The astronomers have been counting the sun spots since Galileo’s time. We are in minimum phase of solar cycle 24 now in 2019 and heading to 25 which is supposed to start in 2020 and reach its maximum in 2025. The NOAA/NASA co-chaired, international panel to forecast Solar Cycle 25 released their latest forecast for Solar Cycle 25. The forecast consensus: a peak in July, 2025 (+/- 8 months), with a smoothed sunspot number (SSN) of 115. The panel agreed that Cycle 25 will be average in intensity and similar to Cycle 24. Additionally, the panel concurred that solar minimum between Cycles 24 and 25 will occur in April, 2020 (+/- 6 months). If the solar minimum prediction is correct, this would make Solar Cycle 24 the 7th longest on record (11.4 years)[1]

Sunspots and climate change

The astronomers and astrophysicists claim that there is a relationship between the number of sun spots and the solar activities. When the solar activities increase or decrease, the number of sun spots also increase or decrease respectively. Some scientists also claim that sunspots are related with climate changes also. In the last few years, some solar scientists announcing that their measurements seem to suggest a significant change in the number of sunspots. It was announced that our sun is preparing to be less active in the coming years. The results studies seem to show that even as the current sunspot cycle swells toward the solar maximum in 2020, the Sun could be heading into a more-dormant period, with activity during the next 11 years sunspot cycle greatly reduced or even eliminated.

NOAA/NASA Panel Concurs that Solar Cycle 25 will Peak in July 2025. The NOAA/NASA-co-chaired international Solar Cycle Prediction Panel has released its latest forecast for to forecast Solar Cycle 25. According to the consensus of the experts attended to this panel “Solar Cycle 25 may have a slow start, but is anticipated to peak with solar maximum occurring between 2023 and 2026, and a sunspot range of 95 to 130. This is well below the average number of sunspots,” the panel said last spring, adding with “high confidence” that Cycle 25 “should break the trend of weakening solar activity seen over the past four cycles.”[2]

Solar cycles, planetary cycles and economy

The observations and the researches show that the solar activities and the shifts in the magnetic field of the earth are all affected by the planetary alignments. The massive studies on this subject were made in the 19th century and the scientists related the solar activities with the planets. According to theories of some researchers, solar cycles, as well as the planetary cycles, are related with the trade cycles and the shifts in the markets. The studies on the sun spots and the planetary cycles and their effect on the trade cycles and crop prices have accelerated since 19th century. It is noteworthy that the most successful forecasts on economy in the 19th century were made by Sir William Herschel who was an astronomer, not an economist. Herschel stated the relationship between the sun spots and the crop prices. With a historical perspective, it was observed that the crops were scarce when the number of sun spots was less and the prices were high as a result. Similarly, when the number of sunspots was more, more crops were produced and the prices were lower. Consequently, he forecasted the high price and the low-price periods for crop prices based on the sun spots between 1798 and 1813.[3]

In the later years, British economist Jevons prepared some statistical data on the economical transformations in 1875, the studies on the interaction between the sun spot cycles and the changes in the economy have gained momentum. The retired iron and steel producer Samuel Benner investigated the iron, crop and cotton prices and found out that these prices changed in 11 years cycles which match with Jupiter cycle and sunspot cycles. Garcia-Mata and Shaffner’s studies between 1934 and 1940 supported the studies of Herschel and Jevons and the belief that there was a relation between the fluctuations in the business world and the solar activities and planets. Many other statistics were made on the economic crisis in the history and solar maximum and minimum periods.[4]

John H.Nelson, who determined the timing of the magnetic storms, predicted the magnetic storm in November 12, 1960 one year before it existed. He has made this prediction by observing the interplanetary aspects so other studies have been carried to find the correlation between the planetary cycles and the world economy. The aspects of Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus and their cycles showed a correlation of 68% with the business world’s events. So, it was predicted that a stagnation period was going to be experienced between 1949 and 1950. According to John H. Nelson, Jupiter and Saturn are the most important planets in our solar system. Due to their huge physical bodies and their slow motion, they have long lasting and dominant effects on the Sun. So, their aspects with each other and with the other planets are important.

After 1960ties, Charles Collins, Edward Dewey, Thomas Reider studied on the subject and found correlation between sunspots, the Sun’s 11year cycle and commodity prices, stock prices, banking activity, business activity, industrial production and agricultural productivity. LCdr. David Williams published his book “Financial Astrology” in 1982 and in some of the chapters there were some observations about the relationship between the sun spots, planetary dynamics and business world cycles.[5]

A correlation has been observed between the number of sun spots and GDP and Dow Jones Industrial average. The relation between the number of sun spots and global climate changes also affect the physical, social and economic factors. Both political and economic events are also related with the fluctuations of the solar energy. Solar activities affect the climate on Earth and the economy as a result.[6]

The studies of some scientists show that there was relation between the economic changes and the human psychology. According to Dr. Ellsworth Huntington, the changes in the Sun do not only affect the Earth but also affect the human health and attitudes. Health affects the state of mind, and the state of mind affects the economic conjuncture. Simone Hutner claims that optimistic or pessimistic responses towards the sun rays were the reason that the solar activities affect the trade. The optimistic periods were the time to borrow and during the pessimistic periods the creditors made demands to get their money back. According to the general opinion, when the number of sun spots increase the stock markets also rise and when the number of sun spots decrease stock markets decline because the solar activities affect the mood of the human.[7]

Some researchers claim that economic recession was experienced after solar maximum periods when aggressiveness was also peak and the human were more hectic, active and eager to take action. Solar maximum periods were also related with high inflation periods. Stock exchange was also at the peak levels during solar maximum periods.

Financial astrologers who respect sun spots were focused on the relation between the planetary affects and number of sun spots. When the planetary aspects are positive and the number of sun spots are less, the effect on the markets were neutral. If the planetary aspects are negative and the number of sun spots is high, the affect was again neutral. However, if the planetary aspects are positive and the number of sun spots is high, then the market values increase. On the other hand, if the planetary aspects are negative and the number of sun spots is less, the market shows a decrease.[8]

Jupiter and Saturn’s alignments are effective in the solar activities which occur in 11-years cycles because these two planets cause convection currents in the Sun and so they are responsible for changing the polarity of sun spots. Slow-moving planets change the magnetic field of the Sun, shift its direction and corrupt the magnetic channel of the Sun. Jupiter and Saturn are more influential planets because these two determine the change in the magnetic channel. The alignments of these two planets are related with the changes in the main field of the Sun and with the solar spots. Their alignments comply with 11 years sunspot cycles. The researches show that their oppositions and conjunctions are important as they complete magnetic changes. On the other hand, squares of these two planets coincide with solar maximum.

Now we are at the end of a minimum cycle and the new cycle (25) will start around Jupiter-Saturn conjunction which will be exacted in December 21, 2020 intersecting with the winter solstice. According to astrologers, this will be the era shift that will open a new path in the human consciousness. According to some researchers, sunspot number can be 30 to 50% lower than the cycle (24) we are about the complete which coincides with a cycle which was a period of low solar activity, named after the English meteorologist John Dalton, lasting from about 1790 to 1830.

According to John L. Casey, long minimum cycles of the Sun such as Maunder Minimum coincide with the Renaissance and little ice age epoch, saw the largest gain in human progress, but they also saw significant food and energy shortages.[9] The Grand Minimum or “Solar hibernation” as Casey called will start in 2020, will bottom between 2031-2037, will end in 2045, will be widespread global loss of life, and social, economic and political disruption. Damaging cold weather will badly effect food production, agricultural systems will fail, there will be seen shortages in food supplies, price of food will skyrocket, there will be food riots. Volcanic eruptions can have serious consequences for Erath’s climate (Casey, page 24). In addition to volcanoes, a brief review literature on the subject suggests that there is also a periodicity for much larger and destructive earthquake activity during solar hibernations.[10] He is saying that we must begin to prepare for this life-altering event now!

Can we predict climate change through astrology?

According to Casey, there is only one reliable approach for climate change prediction: that which is based primarily on the Sun’s activity, influenced by the other planets of the solar system and their combined effect on the Earth-Moon system. He is saying that the start of the next climate era of predominant cold weather was 2008.[11] This was the time when Pluto just entered Capricorn which is a cold and dry sign. And he is saying that the bottom of the solar hibernation could be as early 2024 or as late as 2036. This will be the time when Pluto in Aquarius. This is also a cold sign which is called “chilly”. As we’ve seen, Casey is claiming that Grand Solar Minimum will start in 2020, when Jupiter-Saturn will be travelling in Capricorn and will be exacted their conjunction in the first degree of Aquarius. We are entering 2020 just after a solar eclipse in Capricorn with Saturn-Pluto conjunction, additionally Jupiter in Capricorn and conjunct South Node.

In Mundane astrology, earth signs are associated with soil, crops, harvest and underground sources. The traditional astrologers who think the eclipses bring problems tell that the eclipses in earth signs cause damage of agricultural products, famines, droughts, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and mine accidents. According to Sadullah al-Ankarawi when the eclipses occur in Capricorn, land is ruined, zoning decreases, grass dries, crops get scarce, bandits increase and most people leave their countries and live far from home. When Jupiter is combust in Capricorn, it indicates severe cold in weather and when the South Node in Capricorn, severe cold and earthquake is seen in the winter.”[12] He also relates Jupiter – South Node conjunction with bad weather conditions.”[13]

Eclipse of 26 December 2019 falls in the 4th house cusp in the chart calculated for the capital of US, indicating damaging weather conditions to crops and agricultural products. Severe cold, famine and drought is probable, as Ceres also in close conjunction with Saturn, let’s hope it is not major earthquake in winter.

Of course, we cannot predict and claim as the beginning of climate change only depending on this eclipse in Capricorn and placement of Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto in this earthy, cold and dry sign at the edge of 2020. But it is interesting to see these combinations with the information coming from ancient astrologers. 2009-2010 winter was extremely cold in Europe that has officially recognised as the coldest in 31 years brings when the solar activity at its minimum. Now we are in low sunspot activity of the 11year cycle. So, we can see cold weather patterns again as it was in Europe 11 year ago in addition with many planets in Capricorn, cold and dry sign. Saturn will enter to Aquarius in March and Mars will conjunct to it in the last day of March may indicate another cold weather pattern since Aquarius is another cold sign.

According to researches on weather patterns, there are warmer and colder periods of the earth climate which shifts to each other in rhythms. Professor Raymond Wheeler, from the University of Kansas, was determined a drought cycle which is approximately 100 years which he divided into four phases which we are in now Warm-Dry period. Wheeler says: “The cold phases of the cycle are dominated by various kinds of civil strike—civil wars, class struggles between rich and poor and between conservatives and liberals, religious wars, democratic reforms, emancipations, broadening of the franchise, colonization, migration, and piracy”.[14] This hundred-year cycle is a part of much longer cycle which is almost 500 years coincides with marked shift of economic activity from East to West hemisphere and back again. May we be heading towards a shift which the world trade is moving from West to East?
