I. The return of greatness
"In the third SUN dasa in the 3rd dasa cycle, which runs from April 9 2016 to April 10 2022, we can expect the extension of the territory, the increased authority of the USA abroad, in short, the return of the might of the country."
"A predicted U.S. resurgence will likely take place in the coming Sun major period (2016-2022)."
Freedom and liberty
Americans place great importance on freedom and liberty. Astrologically, this is explained by the placement of Mercury as 3rd lord of action and Sun as 2nd lord of status in the 7th house of others. They also have the Moon as 1st lord in the 11th house of aspirations, making them idealistic.
"I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it's marked by the blood of those who died defending it." (John Thune, 1961-)
Lack of competition
Up until now the large corporations have operated free of government restriction and the wealthiest Americans have enjoyed unfettered access to politicians through their lobby groups. This has resulted in laws and regulations that favour the wealthy, such that the large corporations do not face sufficient competition. In fact, they are able to buy up profitable new competitors, reducing competition further. As a result, they charge higher prices, keep wages lower and exhort their employees to work ever harder. This has resulted not only in growing inequality but also in serious economic and financial imbalances. As this is increasingly being recognised, the real change will likely come when the big behemoths are broken up and subject to more stringent rules of competition, as was the case in the Progressive Era. In other words, the country will rein in the big firms and restore true competition on the market place. As such, the emphasis in politics is slowly shifting towards policies that address long standing social injustices, such as many Americans being forced to move into lower paying service sector jobs as better paying jobs are shipped overseas. Astrologically, this is due to the strong Sun in the horoscope, which gives discrimination about moral issues, the ability to know right from wrong. Moreover, the Sun is also an indicator of the national leader, hence it will likely be the President that ushers in this major change.
II. Policies that reduce inequality and social injusticeIn late 2009 the following prediction was made for the USA in 2016 and later:
We can see that the Gilded Age was replaced by a much more confident and progressive era in US national and political life. This is consistent with the major planetary periods of the time. The national life in the USA since the 1980s has been characterised by great economic progress, with notable advances in communications infrastructure. However, imbalances, financial panics and social tensions have also been there. The forthcoming periods of the Sun (April 2016 - April 2022), Moon (- April 2032) and Mars (- April 2039) indicate that the US will experience a return to considerable progress in the national life during these periods, associated with policies that lead to a reduction in tensions over inequality or injustices, consistent with earlier such periods in the national life.
- “As we look to the future I want to reduce income inequality and close the gap between the haves and have-nots.” (Lincoln Chaffee, 1953-)
- “People are disgusted how money has corrupted our political process...I have spoken about economic fairness and social justice.” (Jim Webb, 1946-)
- “There is a deep economic injustice in America today…our middle class is shrinking, our poor families are becoming poorer. Seventy percent of families are earning less than they were 12 years ago.” (Martin O´Malley, 1963-)
- “For the past 40 years, the middle class has been disappearing, millions of Americans are working longer hours for lower wages and yet almost all of the new income and wealth being created is going to the top one percent.” (Bernie Sanders, 1941-)
- “I have sought to even the odds for each child to reach its God given potential.” (Hillary Clinton, 1947-)
"If poor people knew how rich rich people are, there would be riots in the streets." (Chris Rock, 1965 -)
In any event, the accurate prediction of the nature and timing of events in the USA show that SA astrology, which works so well when applied to the horoscopes of individuals, also works in the mundane sphere when it is applied to an authentic mundane horoscope like the SAMVA USA horoscope. In fact, the many other accurate predictions for the USA based on it increase the confidence that it is indeed the AUTHENTIC horoscope of the USA.
