In this 2-hour presentation, given to a sold-out crowd at the East West Bookstore on January 20, 2012, James discusses the 2012 Mayan Prophesy in the light of Vedic astrology as well as the charts of the United States, China, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, and many other countries of the world. He uses the horoscopes of these countries to describe world-wide trends, in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. For the past 7 years, in his annual talks at East West Bookstore, James has repeatedly predicted that 2008 would be a year of huge "global transition". This year, he reviews the situation in the world and gives predictions for the USA's new Mars period, which started on September 30, 2008, the exact day of the financial meltdown.
James also talks about the stock market, earthquakes, and political struggles that are reflected in the Vedic charts for various countries. In the process he makes predictions for future trends and events taking place in the next decade.
In previous lectures at the East West Bookstore, and at other venues in the USA and Europe, James has made some startling predictions. He predicted the exact time of the beginning of the Japanese recession in January of 1993, the beginning of the gulf war, the year of the Loma Prieta Earthquake, Northridge earthquake in Los Angeles (within two weeks), the long term change in the Stock market starting in 2000, the exact day of the US entry into the war in Iraq, and the capture of Saddam Hussein (within one month).
Find out what James has to say about the proliferation of nuclear weapons, big earthquakes in California, the US economy, the situation in Africa, the future for China and India, the war in Iraq, and a variety of other topics.
