Psychic Impressions of Spring 2016 and March Predictions

Spring 2016 Out in the World; So much new is coming our way: inventions, infections, deliverances, detentions, guerilla warfare and interventions. March actions will call for redactions!

Unless we’ve disengaged from life, it’s really hopping for each and every one of us in March. We’ll need to be resilient even if it’s great, as it’s one after another, changes and new events coming like quick blows that have us alternating between elation to feeling like we just got blown sideways. Doing mindfulness practices and daily meditations to stay centered can really help.

Many new ways of doing things are being presented, and we’re more untethered from “how we used to do things”.

March is a magnet for obstructions and distractions; there’s often a big boulder in the middle of the road. Go around it; the best strategy is non-engagement with obstacles.

March Solar and Lunar Eclipses: March 8th on the new moon solar eclipse in Pisces, it can dawn on us what we need to do, and on the 23rd’s full moon lunar eclipse in Libra, if we’ve acted on our new awareness, we’re prepared to tip the scales and set up new and more favorable circumstances.

Sunday March 20th, the first day of Spring, has a lovely vibration of beauty and cooperation…and it’s a dreamy and romantic Spring if love is in the cards for you. It must have inspired this month’s pictograph, which suggests we become softer and more idealistic and compassionate this Spring, reflected in new collective solutions.

March 25th, Saturn turns retrograde in Sagittarius, meaning over the next 4 ½ months, you’re led to revisit your plans and reconsider your personal and professional goals. Spring’s more practical side is that we’re able to work hard for our goals and take constructive criticism to heart.

What’s needed for success in March is to keep going, and to see professional and creative projects to completion. As well as the satisfaction that can bring, becoming proficient and efficient in the process will be its own reward.

The Presidential election: Current prediction articles are on my blog.

For the Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: Unexpected developments could pop up, and unexpected expenses. You could have to work quite hard for whatever you’re trying to get accomplished. Nevertheless, it looks like you’ve got good plans for yourself! You meet significant people, and significant events occur in March. Watch a tendency to be hasty, slow down and stay safe.

For the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: Life gets more intense and in a good way. You could be making a beeline for a better place, and happy about how well things are unfolding. You are feeling aligned with spirit! New developments and arrangements coincide with a phase of life that’s more going-your-way.

For the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: You could be changing jobs, changing homes, getting into a more suitable profession, and finding ways to make more money. Traveling for work is likely. If you recently had health issues or home disturbances, it looks like they are improving and you will feel a far more complete recovery in August.

For the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: You spend the month putting yourself out there. You’re monitoring a lot of things and seeing what comes of it. Whatever it is you started, you’re getting feedback on. You are learning what are the strong and yielding directions to go in, the ones that can carry you the farthest.

Who Will Be the Nominee? Predictions for the 2016 Presidential Elections

[st_row][st_column][st_text id_wrapper=”text_30639c3ca8a4276b59b883d2359bbf64″ ]

Who Will Be the Nominee? Predictions for the 2016 Presidential Elections

“Who’s going to be the nominee for the Dems and Repubs?” I asked of a new intuition-accessing process I was trying out. The vision it produced was: the Republican seemed like a tall guy with slick-backed dark hair walking up stairs, perhaps boarding a private airplane, who I assumed was Cruz. I couldn’t see the Dem clearly but I sensed it was Hillary Clinton, but she was not staying in the picture. I took this to mean she wouldn’t stay in the picture if it were between her and the Republican. I have always thought there was some surprise in this election…but all the actual news I get makes me think that Bernie Sanders will win the popular vote for nominee. It’s the right time in history for an FDR or a Hitler. A reporter in England who watched a progressive win there, who is now in the U.S., said the Sanders volunteers and rallies felt just like how the left was before they won in England. I expect surprises most of all,…. could it be a surprising turn for the better?

Explanation of What Happened to Bernie in SC is Hopeful

Explanation of What Happened to Bernie in SC is Hopeful

I was so curious: Why did Bernie do so badly in South Carolina? I read a Rolling Stone article,

WTF Happened to Bernie Sanders in South Carolina, Explained”, but I wanted more explanation. The article states all kinds of upside-down statistics that sharply differ from every other Hillary/Bernie poll. (Hillary polls more trustworthy than Bernie, and many other anomalies).

The South Carolina primary proves that keeping people poor and having too hard a life to pay attention really works! People clearly didn’t know Bernie’s policies or record.

Every Bernie supporter and public figure of color in a leadership position would have to come out strongly for Bernie, to quickly influence people and bring his “pro-regular-people, poor people, and old people” policies to the voting audience.

There’s going to have to be a huge mobilization of expertise and will – people are going to have to drop their normal lives and attend to informing people and getting involved in the Bernie Sanders campaign, right now. Because there’s a chance, people love him when they do get to know him. 2.4% unemployment in his state!

The Comment section of the article gave me more explanations about such a heavy loss in South Carolina: Mainly, they were “name recognition”; voter apathy: “167,000 Dems stayed home” and here are some others:

“SC is a Republican state, first & foremost. It has just ONE Democratic constituency and that is- Congressman Jim Clyburne’s district! The Democrat vote share of all voters is less than 12% of the entire state. So, yes- amongst this 12% minority share of entire SC’s voting population, Clinton won convincingly. This is no indication at all of the state of SC so, I wouldn’t put much emphasis on it. Given more time, which sadly Sanders may not have, the rest of the African American popn in the US, I feel would readily shift to Sanders once they became familiar with Clinton’s actual record with Civil Liberties esp amongst Blacks! “

“All this says to me is that South Carolina didn’t research the candidates before voting. Sander’s policy proposals would be drastically more beneficial to African Americans than Clinton’s. One candidate marched with MLK, one did not. I would be surprised if the majority of the South Carolina voters even knew that.”

Another explanation of what dinged Sanders is Dirty Politics, Clinton supporters who are willing to slander and lie and subvert truth: Here’s a comment that details how Congressman John Lewis, a powerful figure in the black community, subverted the truth and smeared Bernie Sanders:

“How much of this win in the black community in South Carolina is due to Congressman John Lewis saying he never saw Bernie Sanders at Civil Rights events in the 60s (likely true as there were millions involved), but more importantly, ALMOST CERTAINLY FALSELY saying that he saw Hillary (then Rodham) and he saw Bill Clinton. In 1964 Hillary Rodham (now Clinton) was a 16 year old high school student “Goldwater ‘girl’.” Barry Goldwater opposed desegregation of public facilities. Hillary Clinton has grown from her youth, although there is NPR audio of her out there saying her political beliefs are rooted in the Conservatism with which she was raised. (… ) (apparently January 13, 1996).
Did the young South Carolina citizens who voted for her prefer a minimum wage of $15 an hour as promised by Senator Bernie Sanders, or the “something less” indicated by Hillary Clinton?
To clarify what Congressman John Lewis stated, his statement about the Clintons came after he had finished a statement and was leaving and he responded to a question. He initially said he had never met Bernie Sanders at Civil Rights events, which well would be expected with the millions involved from all over the country. BUT THEN he added he met Hillary, he met Bill Clinton with the implication it was in the 60s.
There is a 2001 book in which Congressman John Lewis stated he first HEARD OF Bill Clinton in the 1970s and first met him in 1991, certainly long after the crucial Civil Rights years of 1960 to 1965. See: (… ).”

John Lewis did apologize for implying Bernie Sanders was lying about his involvement, but too little, too late.
