- Weather: With the hurricane season upon us, I see several storms coming onto the name list. I see 4 Atlantic storms growing that will go up the East Coast. Only 2 of them will impact the East Coast making landfall. The other 2 will stay further out, barely impacting the East coast. Of these 2 going in affecting the land, I don’t see them being major storms equally. 1 larger going into Georgia, South Carolina and inland and north. 1 smaller going into South Carolina and North Carolina and north of there. The larger could grow to a Category 2, but could stay a Cat. 1. The 2nd will make a Cat. 1 but won’t last long. A 3rd will come close enough to cause storm problems to the same area as #2, but will not go inland as a full hurricane. This 3rd one could go up the coast without landing, but will still have indirect impact on the coastline with a little more than average impact in Maine.
- First, I see 2 major storms going into the Gulf of Mexico. 1 going southward into Mexico, possibly the Yucatan or south of the Yucatan. A 2nd major storm going into Texas around Corpus Christi or slightly eastward, possibly in August. This one could become strong enough to be a Tropical Storm or Cat. 1. It could make landfall as a Cat 1, but it could grow at the last minute and make landfall as a Cat 2 with it quickly dying down. I see several other storms, but not reaching Cat. status. They would remain Tropical Depressions. One of these could go into the Brownsville, Tx area.
- I do see storms going into Mississippi and western Florida, but not as major hurricanes. These areas will get lots of rain and wind, though.
- While I’m seeing these storms as major storms, my use of the term “major” is still subjective. This means that I could be off about the degree of seriousness that I’m speaking of. If they are less than what I see, they would all be less than what I see as a whole. They would not be greater than what I see. The damage can still be significant, though.
- The drought happening in Texas and other areas will continue until October, 2017, which will be a month of much rain.
- Politics: I’m still seeing a great desire to end Obamacare in Congress and by the President. As of today, I still see a higher chance of them succeeding at ending it, than it staying in place. The possibility of it staying as is, in place, is extremely low. Again, this will happen in 2018. There is very little interest by those who will decide this to leave it in place. There is every intent on ending it.
- As sad as it is for me to say this, I see millions of people losing their health care and having nothing.
- There is great determination and intention by those pursuing this to make this happen.
- If it hasn’t ended before 2018 ends, those in power will end it without anything to replace it.
- I still see the 2018 elections to be a turning point. If things continue as they are now, I see the House of Reps. switching to a Democrat majority. I’ve mentioned this before in some other readings, and I still see it happening.
- I do see Jared Kushner stepping back as a presidential adviser half way through the 4 year term.
- I do see President Trump being open to working with the Democrats in the 2nd half of his term.
- President Trump will only have 1 term as president. I’ve mentioned this before. I’ll also say that had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, she also would only have had 1 term.
- I see 2020-2026 being 6 years of great conflict between the Republicans and Democrats.
- The Voter Fraud investigation won’t turn up anything more than a few instances in Arkansas.
- Natural Disasters: In 2017, I’m seeing 1 major earthquake in southern California westward of the Fresno area. As high as a 5.6. Late October
- Weather related disasters – heat related – will impact the Midwestern states. This will greatly impact food production. Then in Jan – Feb, 2018, the same region will be hit with a cold winter.
- No, the dormant volcano in Yellowstone won’t erupt this decade or the next one, either.
- I see more earthquake activity happening in South America – Peru and western Brazil.
- Economy: I see gasoline prices at the pump staying relatively at the rate they are now through to the end of 2017. Before the end of the year, prices at the pump could raise, some, but only by about 10%+ or so.
- I see the 2017 economy staying stable and optimistic. Wall Street’s numbers will go upward slowly and slightly to the end of the year.
- Throughout the year 2018, the US will experience some economic setbacks. It can be described as “it will be a rocky road – some bumps.”
- Several months back I saw a major event happening in May, 2018. At that time, I saw it being a major event which would significantly impact the nation. President Trump will not be able to do anything to stop it. I don’t have more information right now.
- California’s economy will stay strong through 2017, but will be affected in 2018 by the economic directions in which the nation is going.
- Medical: If or perhaps ‘when’ the end of Obamacare happens, this will create upheavals in the medical fields and industries, especially with MD’s.
- Every time I look at this, I see millions of Americans left with no health care coverage, as if “standing out in the cold” with no relief in sight.
- 2018-2020 will be very good years for medical research progress in several different areas related to major diseases. I see this as a generality and not identifying specific diseases or maladies.
- World: We won’t see much change happening for Europe in 2017. As a whole, it is a time for the governments of Europe and the European Union to study and plan where to go from here.
- As the years progress into the next decade, Europe’s economy as a whole will struggle and seem to be slowly slipping. However, around 2022 (5 years from now), specific steps taken will strengthen the economies of the European nations and Europe will take its place as an economic world leader.
- Europe will continue to be a prime tourist destination.
- Asia’s combined economy is stable for the rest of this year. The policies in place will help their respective countries continue without any major problems through 2018.

No one ever mentions Poland in their readings and it seems we r in a great danger with NATO troops and other strange things happening in my country. With our history u can imagine how concerned i am…. could you pls look into it? Justyna
Poland is one of the progressive countries in the world, when comparing it to the major developed nations. Its small size has allowed it to progress more rapidly than many larger nations. It is a country worth visiting.
It’s also a “bridge” country. By that, I mean through many ages, Poland and it’s areas has been in position to bridge two different continental areas. For this reason, it has been invaded many times – being used as that bridge for other nations to “travel through” on to other horizons.
Because today’s Polish people are on edge watching the political and military maneuverings happen all around them, I am seeing a heightened sense of anxiety and concern. For good reason, because of WW2 and the Soviet occupation being recent enough for people to remember the very real suffering of those generations very keenly. Those that suffered were/are family members. Almost every single Polish person knows of someone who suffered through those times.
But, Poland is in a good position – economy-wise. As Polish trade policy with Russia stays in place – helping to strengthen the current partnership, as well as hopefully increasing trade with its northern neighbors, this can strengthen Poland’s economic foundations. I’m seeing Poland not benefiting much from effort to create more trade with Britain, but rather maintaining what is already in place. (Britain’s focus is elsewhere, right now and won’t see Poland as a place to increase trade until around 2018-2020.)
Poland’s economic foundation will be tested and hurt a little by the military maneuverings, because there will be a slowdown of investment in new trade – because of the uncertainty of what will happen. Courage with regards to new investments will help Poland.
I’m seeing Poland being a good partner in the European Union and having benefited from being a member. However, the people in positions of decision should know not to rely only on the EU to provide strength to the Poland’s economy. There will be times that the EU won’t be able to offer support to strengthen individual nations’ economies.
I am seeing anxiety, but I’m currently not seeing certain danger. However, Poland’s people – the nation of Poland – will be challenged in the next 5 years – because of the military and political powers around them, wrestling with each other. Poland’s military will be challenged by outside forces in specific incidences, but not in 2017 and only in a small way in 2018. While NATO is increasing its visibility, I’m currently not seeing certain disaster.
Poland’s economy within it’s borders is one of the stronger economies, because it has a good foundation. It may not be breaking economic records when it comes to amazing advances, but its foundation is good with the industries Poland has, I mention this, because tensions will rise on into the 2020’s, not just in Poland, but in all of Europe as well as many other countries all around the world.
My prediction of world economic problems beginning in the year 2018 (mid – 2018 will show the most evidence) is still in place. Major political happenings will come forth mid-2018 triggering this. By 2019-2020, the world will be having economic problems. Poland will struggle too, but as I said, it has a strong foundation, so it will do better than many other countries.
Mary, the mother of Christ, hears the prayers of the Polish people. Let these prayers grow.
God be with you.
Predictions for the United States
In the days immediately after the swearing in ceremony, I see a stepping up of assaults against the North Dakota Standing Rock protesters. It will last for at least 3 weeks, possibly 5 or more, before those in authority step back to examine other strategies. Many will seek ways to circumvent the decision by the Corp of Engineers and go ahead with completion of the pipeline.
For the year of 2017, I see the US economy starting off well in the winter and spring months with only a few “not too worrisome” economic ups and downs happening until the summer of 2017. The general public will not be aware of much of this. As the US exits summer, greater economic ups and downs will happen. The economic road in the last few months of 2017 will become rocky indeed. By the end of 2017, many will be worried because of economic instability starting to be clear and visible to more than just a few. The year will end with a general feeling of “getting a little beat up.”
Gasoline prices at the pump will slowly begin to climb at the beginning of the year, but will level off through the spring. By mid-Summer, I see a slight drop before the beginning of Fall when I see gas prices begin to rise again. I’m seeing a range from $2.40-$2.80/gallon coming back in 2017, although it’s fluctuation could still be all over the place. What I definitely see is it not staying at the level it is now. Gasoline prices are going up.
Alternative energies in the US, will not get a lot of government support, and so these companies will call on the people of the US to help the industries grow. This call from those people in the industry will help generate some popular support, but the general population are also going to be dealing with the beginning of having less spending power. Those industry leaders who call for finding ways to streamline or lower the costs for people will keep a steady business pace. Some areas of R&D will slow down because of budget cuts.
2017 will see a continuing growth of personal involvement in grass-roots efforts and activism. More people will seek ways to become more active in influencing directions the country goes.
For the US, during 2017, I see the potential for some mostly small earthquake activity in Arkansas, related to the fracking in Oklahoma.
The topic of extraterrestrial activity will get attention in the central to Midwest states.
A town in western Florida will have a wonderful event happen. Somewhere around Quincy, FL area. I don’t see what it is, but it will make them delighted and happy.
2017 is not the year that affordable health care coverage in the US will be made unavailable for many people. That’s 2018.
In general, in the US, we will see more extreme weather events in 2017. Most of it will be during January thru May.
The Pope will travel more in Europe in 2017. I also see him making a trip to South America and a potential trip into central Africa. His message will be consistent with his overall message so far. He is seeking to give hope to people.
In 2017, there will be little progress for peace in the Middle East. Some cease fire agreements will happen, but eventually they will be broken.
In general, India’s economy will stay at the level it is now. I don’t see much growth, if at all. It won’t get worse, though. India will be waiting to see how other countries go with regards to the new presidency in the US, so they won’t be taking risks in their economic progress. Ideally, India would do better not waiting to see how the US goes, but step forward to take a lead in economic directions. This next 50 years is India’s half-century and India has the potential to become a stronger leader than it currently is in the world’s economy. However, the poverty in India will continue to be a very big problem for people for decades to come. I’m not seeing progress for the general health care conditions. But, I do see progress in the decades ahead in the area of education – especially in the 2020’s.
Minor progress will be made in the field of archaeology around the world. I don’t see any significant discoveries in 2017. However, there will be further understanding and expansion of those discoveries already made. Archaeological discoveries in Egypt will not progress that much, or as much as many want.
China’s economy will continue to grow through the 1st half of the year. It will become rocky during the 2nd half of the year making Chinese government officials nervous. The Chinese economy in the 2nd half won’t be bad, but it won’t perform as many hoped it would.
In 2017, Japan’s economy will continue to be stable and a good place to invest.
2017 is not the year of direct dangerous activity from Russia.
Canada will be a productive nation in 2017. I see much good energy and good progress for Canada in 2017.
2017 will be another difficult year for Great Britain. There will be more governmental upheaval (around April-July) which will cause the country to “stumble” some. In time, it will stand back up, but it will take more than just 2017.
Australia will have fires to deal with in 2017, with at least one that is massive in size. The economy in Australia will be strong and stable throughout the year, but I don’t see much growth. However, I don’t see it going down unless its a very small amount – still strong though.
More to come
Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.
I don’t see ***a lot*** of change happening on a Global scale comparing 2015 to 2016. By this I mean, I don’t see many major events making large changes from what we have in 2015. A few – but not many.
What I do see for 2016 more often is a continuation of that which has already been brought forth in 2015.
In general, the World’s economy will overall stay steady as she goes. The economy at the beginning of 2016 will pretty much be where we are at the end of 2016. However, there will be some economic problems or scares related to Europe, up and down, but ending at a stable place at the end of 2016.
India’s economy is still slowly growing and I see it continue to grow in 2016. China’s economy, too, will grow, but not as strong as India. Although, we won’t get any word of it, the country with the initials, NK – I see their economy getting worse. Sad indeed. The citizens there will suffer. The citizens of NK need our prayers, as they always have. The leader(s) don’t see a need to do anything about it.
Russia’s economy will fluctuate some because of their ties with Europe and Asia both. They’re invested in the countries around them, as well as their own. Some of their “investments” in other countries will bring bad results.
For the most part, except for the continued warring, the economies of the Middle East are stable, because they’re based on the sale of oil in the regions. Moving away from oil in any way will trigger some fluctuation, but in 2016 I don’t see any major disasters for any countries based on oil.
The US economy will continue as is it in 2015. At the end of Spring, 2016, I see an announcement from Washington that will help boost the economy more, even.
A Presidential Year in the US
As of December 29, 2015, a total of 1,458 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. No, that’s not a typo. 1,458. That’s the total of all party candidates, independent. write-in, and non-affiliated candidates. Some of these were “meant as jokes”, but the majority are real people. There will not be 1,458 names on the ballots, because not all candidates register or meet the requirements to be on the ballots in all states.
As we get closer to the November, 2016 elections, we will see more and more what we can term as -“bizarre behavior” in our government officials. It’s hard to describe what it will be, but that word – “bizarre” – will be used by many.
What I see is that the diversity of opinions and beliefs in the U.S. can do nothing but remain the status quo. I’m seeing no success by any candidate in unifying the country. Every person who has their own opinions and beliefs thinks they’re opinions are right and the other people need to wake up to it. With this way of thinking, there is no middle ground where people are willing to come together.
I see extremism in American politics being the theme of the November, 2016 campaign trail.
The economy for the US will stay stable and doing well. The gasoline prices will remain at a lower level, but look for them starting to inch up around the end of the summer. I’m seeing a “flash” of an average price around $2.25 being the high by the end of the year. This will be an average with some areas of the nation being only slightly higher. What I’m also seeing is how volatile this price is – moved by human consciousness which moves like flocks of birds in the sky.
I’m seeing several medical breakthroughs announced in 2016. These will get little press time. What is getting press will be several more mass shootings happening sometime around May. Prayers can help to curb, minimize and even stop some of these shootings.
Overall, 2016 won’t be a “great” year for the Midwest large-scale farming or the US car industry. Although starting strong throughout the spring, midsummer will bring downward trends and struggles.
I see the immigration issue in the US as being a mud wrestling pit. There is no clarity and cleanliness to this issue. The politics of this issue will increase the separation of the divided camps. I see no worthwhile progress, just running for office dictating what is said and done. Congress will have another year of passing a low amount of legislation.
The economy will be good in general and overall. Food prices won’t increase much. Local farms will continue to serve their local customers. The drought will hit somewhat, but not as bad as in the past (in general. Different states will have different levels of it hitting.)
I see Africa struggling with similar issues as 2015. I see areas where government officials ignore the needs of the citizens in need, illnesses and diseases getting a toe hold.
I also see other nations reaching out to help African nations and this will keep Africa’s problems from getting too much worse – it won’t remove or solve the problems, but it will help it from getting much worse. A few areas will have serious problems.
Europe’s nation-cooperation will become more a stormy struggle and will require a great deal of hard work. Some of that hard work will come in 2016. The Syrian refugee issues will still be a major issue through the 1st half of 2016. The hugely vast majority of refugees will come to be seen as good citizens in the years ahead. But, it will also be years before the stigma is worn away.
The Middle East
I see an optimistic announcement coming from Washington sometime near the end of spring to mid-summer that a breakthrough has come in negotiations for better cooperation and acceptance among nations in the Middle East. This will be an uneasy breakthrough – and will come from a “compromise” – the definition of this compromise being “when both sides are equally dissatisfied with the results.”
Australia’s economy will not gain but will not lose much either. It is relatively active, but won’t increase, even with the incentives brought in. The problem is the vast amount of foreign investments are going to wait and see what happens, rather than take an aggressive or optimistic approach for 2016. On the plus side, the economy won’t lose that much because of it. Were foreign investments to take a more aggressive approach in vast numbers, Australia’s economy would grow.
Meanwhile, the drought will continue through 2016, as well. I see more potential for fires. Even with this happening, I see Sydney continuing in positive and growing ways. The energy of the city will be more celebratory than discouraging.
They will continue with some major earthquakes in the same old areas – mostly western S.A. Mudslides will accompany the earthquakes. The differences between 2015 and 2016 in so many areas of comment will be almost unnoticeable, except in Southwest S.A. which has a potential large destructive event which would be reported in world news. Prayers for this area will bring the destruction down to a small event – hardly worth mentioning and therefore not by news agencies.
The Pope will be more active in the 1st half of 2016, continuing to be in the public eye, but will stay more close to Rome in the 2nd half with much less visibility and press. His speeches will focus mostly on the poor, needy and suffering people in the world – some about the refugees. His messages will carry some sternness towards world leaders for the recalcitrance towards compassion and helpfulness of many nations’ leaders.
While the world will continue to experience natural disasters, I’m not seeing a hugely world event in 2016. The 2nd of 3 events I saw for August, 2015 has been broken up into smaller, better handled events over a number of areas, including what I think is deep water earthquakes off the coast of N.W Africa. If this does happen as I’m seeing it, it will be in the same area near where the southern tip of Atlantis existed over 12,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Because of the lower fuel costs, there will be less incentives for automakers to proceed with more efficient vehicle production. However, the research into electric vehicles will continue – especially in Japan. In the years ahead, the progress made in Japan, in the electric vehicle batteries will lead the industry, while American manufacturers will do more observing than research. The Tesla company will have some improvements, but Japan’s research is still ahead. Japan’s intention is to move the auto industry further into the electric vehicle direction by 2020. They see the China market – with it’s current pollution problems – and envision Japan’s cars as being a solution for China’s problems along that line. This is in actuality a positive move and will put them ahead of the game again, leaving the American manufacturers playing catch-up in electric vehicles as a solution. The growing China economy and growing spending power, plus China’s growing numbers of younger car buyers will be very open to electric vehicles. There will be a push for this to happen in 2019 and 2020, but will lessen going into 2021-2023. The focus during 21-23 will be on trying to come up with the next generation of technology for electric cars.
At the same time, during these years gas powered vehicles will still have the dominate share of the market. Unfortunately, for American car manufacturers, they are looking to much to the present and past, while Japan’s are looking more to the future.
Medicine and Medical Care
We won’t see much change over all from 2015 to 2016. A few unmentioned breakthroughs in medicine will be announced in a few medical journals. The controversies with vaccines will continue with the same arguments happening on both sides, but little pursuit to solidify any deeper insight or understanding of vaccines and autism. If more medical research were to happen in the field, more would be revealed that hasn’t been understood before. Currently, the status quo is pursued by pharmaceutical industries and the medical community (which doesn’t have research to say anything else.) The opposition to vaccines won’t go away soon, and may get louder until the medical community starts asking more questions about what is possible with vaccines and autism. Research is happening, but only in small pockets and effort is made more to ignore it.
Update: A New Energy
A new type of energy which I’ve been seeing coming into our lives within the next few decades is being delayed. The person I foresaw as spearheading the research is taking a longer approach in his research and therefore could add another 7-8 years before he finally develops his theories. The delay may only move the completion of the research into working models from 2045 or so, to 2050-2052. This also will change the timeline for the world’s beginning to make welcome contact with extraterrestrials, who, more than anything else, are waiting for humans to develop our own technologies to help the planet – technologies in energy that will move us away from polluting, non-sustainable energy sources.
The Spring of 2016 will see a bountiful harvest of local producing small farms. The weather from 2015-2016 will help bring water to the farms. Even though flooded, many areas will benefit from the water for food crops. As mentioned earlier, the large-scale farming operations will have trouble from the same weather. The small farms can recover faster.
2017 is different.
Because weather is such an important topic to so many places on the whole Earth, I’ll add what I see with regards to different areas.
Australia has been going through a tremendous drought. I still see 2.5 more years of drought happening, but after those 2.5 years, the drought will diminish step by step from then on. So, in 2018, I see the drought taking the other turn and begin the process of lessening. While 2 more years of drought is a problem, I do see its end. Australia is going into its Summer temperatures right now and this year will see some rain associated with at least 1 major storm. Look for the storm to not hit Australia directly. This means there won’t be a lot of rain, but there will be some.
I see a general direction of the same weather patterns which Europe has had for the last 4 years. I don’t see a lot of fluctuation or dramatic changes. Climate Change is real and the weather patterns of the last 4-5 years are to be considered the new normal. The nearest time period I see any dramatic change will be 2018 when I see Europe having an extremely mild winter with 2019 being the pendulum swinging back the other way. This is far off in the future, but gives the indication that the weather patterns Europe has had recently are going to continue.
As a whole, expect lots of rain over the next 18-24 months. More than what has been “normal” in decades past.
This is one area where the dramatic weather extremes are going to be felt less. I’m still seeing some extreme weather – with regards to higher than average temperatures, but not beating up the area, like is happening in Australia. I see the extremes in weather being related to temperatures rather than being extreme storms. I see a severe mosquito (swarming) problem coming for South Africa – worse that before. This is related to the weather somewhat.
As a whole, the Climate change effect for India’s weather will be a longer rainy season. While I see the level of intensity of the storms will be near the same level as compared to decades past, the length of the rain season will be longer and come earlier. This does mean that there will be significant flooding in cities as well as rural areas. India will face some disasters related to flooding. Disease and insects will become a problem because of the flooding. Clean drinking water will be part of the challenge for people during the floods, and this should not be a surprise.
I know there is a lot of talk about drought but in the Dallas area we are in the 3rd worst drought since 1899. The lake I drive over, one side is dry the other is drying up. It’s the worst I’ve seen. This is May, the hot summer months are ahead. Will we have a record breaking 100 degree summer again? When will this end! When it does rains for a minute I remember what rain really is. I watch the TV and see all the storms in the east causing lots of damage and all we got was a sprinkle or two. It’s kind of scary. (Vicki, May 3, 2014)
It can, indeed, be kind of scary. Yet, life is such that we don’t live going backwards, no matter how much we may want to try to hold onto the past. And as scary as it sounds, our living forward is a good thing.
We will not see weather patterns of the past – weather that we consider normal weather – in the future. We no longer live in that climate or world situation. We have a different world existing now based on over 7 billion people living on the planet, and this different world is where we now live ever moving onward to 8 billion people. We will have greater pendulum swings, and in between these swings will be what appears to be normal as compared to the past. But, we will find ways to help to live our lives, as every generation before us has.
There are many factors in our world that have brought about “the end of the world as we know it” and so we’ve experienced this “end of the world as we know it” over and over again. Take a look at Sept 11, 2001 as an easy example to see this. But, it is true in other ways, also. Neal Armstrong walking on the moon was another example, as was the end of the Soviet Union. Others are yet to happen. One of these examples is climate change. We don’t live in that past world – we no longer live in a world of only 5 billion or 6 billion people. We are here, now, and this world has challenges to face and work on. We will work for solutions and we will pray for guidance. We will continue to live our lives, as every generation before us has.
While it could be easy to say the past was better for us, remember, for some, the past was way worse, also. How many people in Europe would like to return to the 1940’s to live? How many people in Viet Nam would like to return to the 1960’s to live?
But, the question and issue isn’t “what is the world like, today.” The question and issue is “who are we, today.” This is a question that every generation before us has had to answer, and now, it’s up to us. Who are we?
