A year has slipped through our fingers like a handful of sand. Now, we have come to the crucial, according to many, people 2012. A year ago, I shared my expectations for 2011. I will begin with a brief overview - what I expected 2011 to bring, what events we witnessed throughout the world. Then, I will tell what “the stars are whispering" for 2012.

In 2011, my expectations were related to the fact that the global crisis would continue, although apparently we had emerged from it. In astrological terms, a new cycle between the planets Jupiter and Uranus had begun in 2011, which happens every 14 years. This is associated with the beginning of a new direction and transformation in social, cultural and scientific life. The challenge of this new cycle usually affects all forms of social organization. Changes in the world become necessary and all are involved in them in some way or another.
The beginning of this cycle is full of "bombs." It is explosive. I clearly expected that a rebellion against progress and evolution would happen in the world. Any progress is preceded by some kind of explosion - figuratively and literally. In 2011, there were prerequisites for "explosive" situations, a trend towards risk-taking and extremism in the behaviour of all. Such extreme situations often lead to massive disobedience. Uranus always symbolizes something destructive. In 2011, the way I expected this symbolism to express itself was to destroy the crisis. For all to rush right into it in some way.
The global economic crisis unleashed in 2008 and the first critical turn was in 2011. I expected the financial sector to be strongly affected - markets, stock exchanges, and the banking system. There was a trend for 2011 to be dramatically characterized by financial twists and upheavals in terms also of regeneration and renewal of some business areas and collapse of others. 2011 promised to be a turning point in the whole crisis since its outburst. I also expected major financial reforms, devaluation and collapse of one of the major currencies in the world.
What are the facts at the end of 2011?
Reporters called it a year of turmoil.
In March there was the terrible earthquake in Japan, horrifying the world over the nuclear power plant accident in Fukushima. There was no explosion, but the damage from radiation has yet to bear its "fruit." The future development of nuclear energy has turned into an issue under question.

The revolution in the Arab world was the second major and unique event of 2011. Extremism, bomb blasts, explosions. A new social and political order, which will hereinafter be established in the Arab world. A new era had begun for it in 2011. Riots started in Russia in late 2011 too and for the first time in 12 years, Putin’s positions have been seriously undermined. This has led to plans for changing the political system. Russia is a country of a great global importance and the events there have the power to resonate across the world.

The third most serious event that has unfolded in the middle of 2011 is the looming financial collapse faced by Europe – the threat to the existence of the eurozone and the euro as its currency. This financial turmoil has posed serious difficulties and solutions to Europe.

Now, I will continue with 2012. What lies ahead?
There has been much talk in recent years about 2012 and the "end" that awaits us. I think the "end" in 2012 will be for all speculations that appeared in the media. Indeed, an astronomical phenomenon will occur in 2012 and its frequency is about once every 130 years. I call it the "eclipse of Venus." This phenomenon is completely identical with the solar and lunar eclipses. But this time, Venus eclipses the Sun. Since Venus is a planet of much smaller size than the Sun, while observing this phenomenon only a small black dot is seen.

The first eclipse of the Sun by Venus was in 2004 and the second one will be in June 2012. This pair of eclipses happens in a time span of 130 years, as I have already mentioned. Each eclipse of the Sun is particularly significant in astrology. It means "a crisis, a turning point." In the case of Venus, it concerns a rarer phenomenon. Venus is an interesting planet in terms of astrological symbolism. It is associated with human desire in all its forms. Because the deep sense of desire is to stir people to want different things and therefore, they take a different activity, make mistakes, gain experience. Only in this way, are human evolution and development possible.
In this sense, 2012 contains an evolutionary jump in the world and the last one was in 1882. Then, in the 20th century, the world registered the greatest industrial and technological growth, the means of communication and connection of people changed completely, the position and function of the woman as an individual changed. One of the manifestations of these eclipses is always associated with changes in the way of functioning of human relationships and values, how people arrange the world around themselves.
