The Reboot of History
2008 is more than a year. It is a turning point in history. It is the exact apex in time when the balance of ages, suspended, begins to tip away from forces and themes defining the last 2,000 years. History will now incline with ever increasing direction, for better or worse, towards those values and influences that mark a new 2,000-year era.
The year indicates the midpoint in the gradual overlap of the Piscean Age subsiding into the Aquarian Age. Epoch shaking change comes now. Not in the year 2012, when it is said the Mayan Calendar of the Ancient Mesoamerican time keepers ends its 63 million year long count. Wait and you will be looking late.
The death and rebirth of ages begins right now.
There are many great prophetic time clocks. Chief among them is one far older than the Mayan Calendar. It is called by three names, “the Great” or “Cosmic Year” and the “Great Precession of the Equinox.” It starts its count with the annual Vernal Equinox–the moment believed by most ancient people to be the true moment of New Year’s birth with the blossoming of spring. Every new year begins with the Sun moving from one Vernal Equinox to the next ending the year in a new position slightly farther west in the sky. Each year dies and is reborn on a new westward position along the ecliptic compared to the fixed stars on the celestial sphere–where the twelve constellations of the Zodiac reside. A Cosmic Year, therefore, embraces the time it takes the Vernal Equinox to slowly retreat a full 360 degrees around all 12 constellations of the Zodiac: approximately 25,765 years. The 12 signs are twelve “Cosmic Months” lasting roughly 2,160 years.
In my new eBook Predictions for 2008, I explained why this year reaches a significant midpoint of human evolution from one great age of history to the next. They don’t just shift in an instant, either:
The current Cosmic Month slowly drawing to a close is the Age of Pisces. History began experiencing the subtle influence of the new Age of Aquarius as far back as the 1760s. Aquarius’ revolutionary ideas–such as the pursuit of human freedom and happiness, or the exploration of science beyond religious belief for answers–marked a new period of revolutionary thought later called the Age of Enlightenment or Reason. The predominant Piscean icon, the Church, and its fundamental belief structures experienced an unprecedented onslaught of significant and collective doubt expressed by high intellectual and lowly layman alike. Voltaire, Rousseau, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were the first microscopic sprouting of the Aquarian Age collective mind. The emergence of the Industrial Age in the mid-1700s was also a shift to the Aquarian vibe. It would be, however, another 500 years before what began in the 1760s would crystalize into the full emergence of Aquarius beyond all remaining Piscean influences in the 2260s.
We are halfway through that overlap of ages now. These years 2007 through 2008 comprise the most schizophrenic two-year period in 20 centuries. Humanity is pushed and pulled by the subtle forces of faith and hope in a tug-a-war with fact and realities. Tradition struggles with innovation. Many want to take their cake of Piscean past and eat it too in a new and mercurial Aquarian future.

Predictions for 2008
After 2008 the human race will begin feeling the scales tipping towards the new Aquarian dispensation of history. People will yearn in all dimensions of life towards a scientific, rather than faith based mindset. The Piscean Age was the Age of Faith. The Aquarian Age is that of Science, and the existential tasting and experiencing of life. After 2008 it will not be enough merely to “believe” something. People will feel the first stirrings of wanting “to know” something is true, first hand, about themselves, their world, and the mystery of existence.
HISTORY IS TICKING
The clock of the Cosmic Year “ticks” once every 36 normal years, then “tocks” for the next 36 years.
In 2008, we pass from the “tick” of Cosmic Day to “tock” of Cosmic Night. The Cosmic Day manifests as a period dominated by masculine, yang forces. It’s a time of assertion, sowing positive and negative futures. The Cosmic Night is another 36-year period when history is influenced by the feminine, yin energies. It’s a time of harvesting what was sown, a time of both subversion and awakening insights. The first year of the “tick” or the “tock” cycle is always full of powerful, history changing events. For instance, back in the last change around the time 1972 entered 1973, we were introduced to history-altering events that overshadowed the next 36 years, such as, the appearance of Pan-Arab to Islamic terrorism, the Yom Kippur War/Arab oil embargo, and Watergate. These led to chronic troubles in the Middle East and Arab oil dominating our lives ever since. For Americans, Watergate clocked the “tick” wherein the long road to its current state of disconnect with its government began.
There were positive things launched by the change. For one thing, the world since 1973 has become more aware of a need for global ecological activism. The year 1973 saw the beginning of arms talks between the US and USSR that signaled the beginning of the end of the Cold War. It also experienced the substantial outreach of Eastern thought–yoga, meditation–and Eastern religion to the West, as well as the current shift of Western technology and affluence to the East.
Now comes the time of reaping what was sown as 2007 passes into 2008. Now we come to the years of the “tock,” the 36 years of Cosmic Night. Events in 2008 will define what that reaping of evil or good will be that resonates down world history’s timeline up to the year 2044.
Futurologist Richard Strauss coined the phrase for the “00” first decade of the new century as the “oh, oh” decade. I prefer to define it more stridently as the “uh-oh!” decade. According to his study of generational cycles the 00s are similar in warnings and foreboding to the 1930s. We have a chance to do what the so-called “Greatest Generation” of the Great Depression period missed. In the 1930s they saw the catastrophe of world war coming and did little to stop it. Indeed, the ticking time bomb of global war was the bitter harvest, soon to come after the beginning of the previous cycle of Cosmic Night that started with the “tock” of the year 1936. The year 1936 began with Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin and Hirohito of Japan overseeing the full-scale buildup of vast military industrial complexes to marshal totalitarian fascist and communist armed forces with the sole aim to conquer the world. Only a tardy call to arms of the forces of democracy, allied with the Russian communist regime of Stalin, stopped the fascists plunging the world into a new dark age.
Prevention never adequately seeded in the Cosmic Day, the democracies and allied powers had to cure the fascist emergency with a world war reaped in Cosmic Night. Cure came at the cost of 60 million people killed, hundreds of millions wounded, injured and displaced and a level of devastation civilization has never before encountered.
Today, we of the next “uh-oh!” decade can still stop the march of a new global enemy: ourselves. We are under the spell of a new fascism: the parasitic over consumption of Earth’s resources. The enemy is our own habitual stupidity, which could lead to a nuclear world war fought over food, water and living space. Starting with 2008, if we do not change course and let intelligence reign then climate disasters and climate wars will rage with full force in what I predict will be called the “Roaring 2020s.”
Great good to counteract this dark future will also be born in 2008:
A revolutionary understanding and practice of meditation will begin in Cosmic Night. It will give birth to the inner new human in hundreds of millions of people around the world. Their flowering of consciousness can tip the scales of fate toward a golden future in the next 36 years. Out of our transformation will come an end to fear, and a celebration of heaven and earth meeting in blissful union inside each of us

Predictions for 2008
FREE 2008 PREDICTIONS
Earth Storm RISING!
PREDICTION: This year climate change and disasters slide out of control. There’s no way to prevent the terrorism Mother Nature is preparing, and no way to keep it away from the US borders. The ultimate mistake would be to chalk what’s coming up as “freaks of nature” somehow out of our control. We’ve helped created the mess, we will have to work to defuse it. We should have known: Don’t mess with Mother Nature.
The Age of Belief ENDS
PREDICTION: After 2008, it will not be enough merely to “believe” something. People will feel the first stirrings of wanting “to know” something is true, first hand, about themselves, their world, and the mystery of existence. They do this guided by feeling the new dispensation of history that is the coming Aquarian Age.
Prepare for the CEOligarchy
PREDICTION: In 2008, history begins a power shift beyond the politician to the new aristocracy of the multi-billion dollar business executives. The princes of supply and demand can be influenced for the betterment of the future, not by ballot, but by what you demand they supply. Read more how that is possible in Predictions for 2008.
PREDICTION: The next great social crisis in America, after poverty and racism will be sociopathic behavior arising from Media-imprinting. US culture begins to reap in 2008 the harvest of Cosmic Day’s 36-year injection of media violence.
A Dumbo-PUPLCIAN and Donkey-CRATIC Mess?
PREDICTION: The Republican primary campaign in 08 will be so tight that we have the best chance since the late 1940s to see no candidate come to the party convention with a clear majority of delegates. Candidates and delegates could gather at the Xcel Energy Center, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, from 1 to 4 September 2008, to wheel and deal out a choice of nominee.
I do not rule out a similar problem stalling the Democrats until summer if there is a close race between Illinois Senator Barack Obama and New York Senator Hillary Clinton. Such a comedy of political dysfunction would definitely drawn New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg into an Independent run for president if he was still sitting on the fence after March.
BOOB-Tube BOOMERS Rule
PREDICTION: The first boob-tube boomers are now entering their 30s. They begin to influence the social, economic and political nature of our times starting in 2008. They are the completely TV-programmed generation.
“AMERICAN” The Two-Party System
PREDICTION: 2008 marks the beginning of the INVISIBLE MAJORITY REBELLION. They are the independent voters who will choose the next president of the United States, and he or she may not be a member of the current political mafia, the duopoly of Democratic and Republican Parties, stifling a democracy in crisis.
See RON PAUL Run. “RON”! Paul RUN?!
PREDICTION: A Libertarian candidate for president has never swayed a majority of the American voting public and never will. Ron Paul, the Texas Republican Congressman–a Libertarian in GOP disguise–runs a primary campaign that is significant because it heralds other third party rebellions in 2008 that will mark the beginning of the end of the current two-party Republican-Democrat duopoly in America. Neither party will exist 36 years from 2008.
HONEY! The CAR ate the KIDS
PREDICTION: The era of global famine foreseen by Nostradamus will begin in 2008. In a previous HogueProphecy Bulletin, the reason for that famine was detailed as clear as the nose on our faces when we look out the window towards our garages and our (average) 1.2 cars. Is it possible we are going to choose to feed our gas tanks instead of human beings?
“PALESTRAELI” Peace Dreams?
PREDICTION: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at the end of 2007 declared her goal to bring Israel and Palestine together in a binding peace agreement by the end of 2008. It appears that President Bush at the end of two terms in office has heard the call: wake up and smell your legacy. It stinks. Too little interest and focus on the Palestinian Arab-Israeli issue will lead to too little results too late. The US policy will continue its myopic path of diplomacy excluding Hamas and Iran from the discussions. “Peace” for the Middle East will be in “Pieces.”
Mogen David’s got ATOM BOMBS
PREDICTION: Geo-Political fortunes begin tipping against Israel in 2008. Even without initiating their secretly planned attack on Iran, there will be unprecedented Arab and global pressure on Israel to declare its nuclear arsenal and open its bunkers for IAEA inspection. Beginning in 2008, we will see the US-Israeli alliance more isolated and strained. Oil demand heightens US secret pressure on Israel, especially in the next presidential administration, to admit having a nuclear weapons program. They will either declare or use their weapons in 2008. Let us hope it is the first future.
CZAR Vladimir: HOPE of the World?!
PREDICTION: Russian President Vladimir Putin will duck behind the mask of Prime Minister of Russia for the next four years, then return for another eight years as president. Be thankful, rest of the world, that a prudent strongman keeps Russia from falling into collapse, for it that happens, Nostradamus has famously foreseen what could be the thermonuclear world war America and Russia “didn’t” fight during the Cold War, happening three to thirteen years hence. Russia, at this stage in its slow evolution towards democracy will need to get there over a bridge of time lasting 36 years.
Russia straddles two worlds as the only uniquely “Eurasian” country. I have always sensed in Putin the destiny of arbiter for finding fair and balanced solutions for Eastern and Western tensions. He will be remembered as the modern Peter the Great. An autocrat? Yes! Stepping on freedoms of speech? Distinctly! The coming times will teach the world that on rare occasions a despot if strong and visionary can be a bridge to a democratic future. Edgar Cayce once predicted that Russia would be “the hope of the world.” I predict Putin’s declared dream will be seen as true. He is dedicating his life to the reform and democratization of Russia in a generation’s time.
The DOLLAR — A new Financial FOSSIL?
PREDICTION: Forget it! The Euro looks captivating as a replacement for the dollar because it is, in a way, like an unattached maiden. The poor dollar is like some harried matron who is married with children and obligations. The Euro is in part seductive and stronger than the dollar because it is not attached to all the things that the dollar does that sustains global economy. If the lovely Euro was bound and married to financial bank bonds, loans and responsibilities of the Dollar, it would share more of the burdens and its value would lower. Still, the multi-polar world now has entered the multi-world-currency age in 2008. The dollar will decline in 36 years until all currencies are replaced by something called “The Terran.”
2008: The Beginning of the END OF WAR
With 2008, we enter an era when economic needs that were often the chief motivation to cause war will now begin to prevent war. In the emergent global society, economy has been freed of the constraints of national identity and political borders. You cannot bomb the country that manufactures your products, nor can you bomb the customers who buy them.
Do not TAIWAN-on!
For many years now, I have warned about the potential of a Sino-Taiwanese war, if that island nation, claimed by Mainland China, should risk declaring independence during the upcoming Beijing Olympics. China threatens an invasion across the Strait of Formosa; however, China would disrupt $80 billion dollars of business it does with the island secessionist-threatening nation.
Conversely, Taiwan listening to its fire-breathing secessionists would most certainly suffer a Beijing boycott before battle and invasion that might cripple Taipei’s economy overnight. Crying uncle, Taiwan might be amendable to a diplomatic solution offered by the next US president. I call it the “Time Out” plan. Taiwan would agree to full union with Mainland China after a cooling-off period of 80 years. Perhaps that would be more than enough time for free economic philosophy to undermine and transform the Communist regime in Beijing.
Who knows? Perhaps the new lyrics I wrote to Stephen Foster’s “Camp Town Races” might apply as a prophecy:
The Chinese people sing this song:
The Chinese race is a billion strong
Oh, the Buddha Day!
Goin’ Communistic all night,
Goin’ Communistic all day,
I bet my money on Mao Zedong,
Somebody bet on Taipei
