- The long awaited retracement is over for silver . It's been nearly one month since we peaked in silver . By my count silver previous wave 3 of 5 had a wave extension, topping out at $22.18. Since the topping of silver , I've counted corrective wave counts 5-3-5 / A-B-C pattern, and I'm certain our correction is over. You can zoom-in on this chart, and follow the counts. For the larger picture with silver , I have a wave (5) 3 truncated. co-author Quyen Nguyen

I have done some research of past cardinal squares and T-squares from 1 AD. In the previous weeks I have covered each the planetary alignments individually. But on April 23 it all comes together! After looking at the history, the theme seems to be one of powerful dynasties taking power, starvation, fear of the end of the world and currency loosing value. I think the Cardinal T Square of 1344 is particularly significant since it shows the beginning of the fake money ruling the world and the elites holding power over the masses by creating debt. The cross also fell around 13 Degrees of the Cardinal signs as it does this year.
I thought it was important only to research Cardinal Crosses (Not fixed or mutable with the same planets) to get a clear idea of its specific energy. Cardinal signs are natural leaders and initiators. The mode is pioneering, conquering and carries great force. If that Cardinal power battery also contains catalysts of change (Uranus and Pluto) combined with military might (Mars and Jupiter.) then we really are in for a life-changing event of epic proportions. In the natural zodiac the cardinal cross covers the four fundamentals. Ourself (Aries) V Partner (Libra), Career (Capricorn) V Home life (Cancer.) Important transits that occur within this cross will change the very foundations of our lives. Those who get this falling in their angular houses will feel the force of it the strongest.

Cardinal Aspect by Marina Macario
Yes, the World is turning a blind eye to the Crimean annexation -- for now. However, this sets a bad precedence and it is highly probable that this is not over. At the same time, it is very difficult to predict whether serious problems will surface next week or in ten years. The formal treaty between Ukraine and EU that was signed a few days ago will not set well with Putin. Russia has amassed troops on the border. They have also made incursions into eastern Ukraine and killed/wounded Ukrainian soldiers. Putin is cranking up nationalistic feelings in the Ukrainian people. And much of the world, particularly Europe, is noticing the striking similarities between current Russian actions and those of Germany in the 1930s. Few in the West want a war and that is why they are trying so hard to find a way out of this. The harder Putin pushes the more likely he is going to find the tipping point where people seek revenge -- that could ignite a war. This is a very dangerous game that Putin has started.
