Jewish Horoscope for 2004
by the Jmag Staff & Yaakov Kroingsberg
Yaakov Kronenberg gave us his astrological forcast in the middle
of 2003, (click here) so we came back to ask him what he sees in store for 2004.
Jmag: Yaakov, before hearing your predictions for 2004, first we want to
review your forecast for the last half of 2003 we want to question you
about some of your predictions.
First you said that you foresaw a downturn in real estate prices in
America and Europe. What do you say about that?
Yaakov: With Saturn and Cancer ruling real estate, it indicates a
contraction is due in prices. Cancer will be in Saturn until July, 2005, I
see well before that a serious down turn, especially in the US and in
Jmag: What about your prediction about water shortage and contamination.
Yaakov: Well, interestingly enough, a few weeks after I said that, Time
Magazine had an article about the contamination in the world's oceans and
that the fish are dying there. In addition, one of the private monitoring
agencies in Tel Aviv said that the level of water purity has degenerated
to the level of a third world country. We will hear much more about the
water problems in the coming years.
Jmag: On the good side, we saw many of your predictions come to pass, like
Arab terror in Israel begin to diminish. We haven't seen the predicted
protests against the government take place.
Yaakov: Well, the right is now planning a large protest in Tel Aviv.
Jmag: Let's look to the future. What do you see for Israel and the
Yaakov: Let's start with Israel. It looks like the worst of the Arab
terror is over. It does not mean that there won't be periods of problems,
but it will not be on the level that it was before. By the end of the
summer, Jupiter moves into Libra. This is usually a good time for Israel,
meaning there will be more optimism in the country. This means expansion,
economically and materially, more prosperity and travel and tourism will
pick up. It indicates a good time for the country, marked by economic
There will be a fundamental change in the country's economic structure
which will have a very positive influence on the stock market in Israel
for a long time. This does not imply that there will not be problems in
the country between Israel and her neighbors or between Israel and the
rest of the world, but we will be in a better state of mind to deal with
Ariel Sharon's chart still looks quite strong. No one can really
understand what he is thinking or doing. He is Neptune – all deception, a
master of deception. Possibly including himself.
Jmag: what do you see in store for the USA?
Yaakov: America is going to go through a difficult time. I saw in a
medrish that Sodom was not destroyed until they legalized same sex
marriages. According to the locations of America's stars, confusion,
un-clarity, disintegration of various systems will begin starting in
February and stretching through January, 2007. As for Bush's chance for
re-election, this is not clear to me now.
Right now, finances look good in America. This should last until after the
US election. After that, America will have to pay for the price of pumping
up the markets. I don't see the problems with terrorism letting up in
Iraq. America will still have to worry about chemical and biological
attacks. But conversely, there is going to be a tremendous breakthrough in
drugs. There will be new drugs to treat just about everything, especially
memory, psychological etc. They will come out one after the next.
America is slowly going to lose their economic superiority to perhaps
China. Once their economic superiority is lost, it means that the American
influence in the world will decline considerably. But that is a few years
down the road.
America will continue in the war against terror. The Arab states will slowly be
hurt by this war. It is possible that the Arabs will stop giving the world
so much trouble.
