The Fate of USA Empire Life Cycle

2015-2022: USA last 7 years as the world superpower based on empires life patterns and Pluto cycles

All empires in history went from conquest to affluence to collapse.

Regardless of financial strength, political power and knowledge of previous history life cycles, no empire leader has ever been able to prevent its supremacy from collapsing. For instance, the successive Chinese dynasties would always rise, stay and fall regardless of lessons learned from the past. Empires life cycles would repeat over and over following a same cyclical pattern. In 1977, Sir John Glubb wrote an essay titled “The Fate of Empires” whose life periods are summarized below.


We can see that during 3 millenaries the average superpowers duration period has been consistently of about 250 years. Let’s note that the full 250-year cycle corresponds to about ten 25-year generations. This 250-year duration presents an unexpected consistency, especially if we consider all the major changes during the 3000 years in transportation speed and weapons sophistication, which has expanded territories conquests from local to global. Regardless of the historical period, the life cycle was always of about 250 years. Something bigger than their leaders was inclining empires to rise and also to fall. While we could seek a spiritual explanation of divine influence, we can also look at the sky from an astrologer perspective and find out that there are perfect correlations between the 250-year empires live cycles and Pluto’s 247-year orbital cycle. When a country is born, Pluto occupies a certain position in the sky, which eventually will return to the same position in about 247 years. That period corresponds to the entire superpower life cycle. In his essay, Sir John Glubb also revealed that all empires cycles in history have followed a same 8-phase pattern process, which is represented below.


The common phases of all superpowers life cycles.

I would like to clarify upfront that I am not an historian and am very interested of anyone’s comments about Glubb findings. In a nutshell, here are the empires 8 common phases and their corresponding heroes.

Phase 1: Outburst – Pioneers

Phase 2: Conquest – Soldiers

Phase 3: Commerce – Merchants

Phase 4: Affluence – Businessmen

Phase 5: Intellect – Intellectuals

Phase 6: Decadence – Athletes

Phase 7: Decline – Musicians

Phase 8: Collapse – Actors

While not necessarily of equal duration, each phase would last an average of about 41 years.

USA is now in the final phase of the superpower life cycle pattern.

The USA was born on July 4, 1776. That day Pluto was positioned at 27º33′ of Capricorn and will return to that same natal position during the years 2021-2023, which is about 246 years later as found with most of the historical empires lives. During that orbital period, transiting Pluto covered all angles from 0º to 360º with natal Pluto. Angles multiple of 45 degrees are critical and correspond to tensions during each of the 8 phases transitions. Below is a rudimentary historical outline associating USA superpower life cycle with Pluto orbital cycle.

July 4 1776 0º – USA Declaration of Independence is signed

1776-1806 Phase 1 – Outburst – George Washington

1806-1809 45º – The end of slaves trade

1809-1847 Phase 2 = Conquest – Wars and battles

1847-1851 90º – The gold rush begins

1851-1894 Phase 3 – Commerce – General Electric is born

1894-1898 135º – The income tax bill is passed

1898-1935 Phase 4 – Affluence – Roaring 30’s

1935-1938 180º – Orson Welles “War of the Worlds”

1938-1962 Phase 5 – Intellect – Disney movies

1962-1964 135º – John Kennedy is assassinated

1964-1981 Phase 6 – Decadence – Sex, drugs and rock & roll

1981-1983 -90º Bombing of the Beirut US Embassy

1983-2000 Phase 7 – Decline – The Lewinsky scandal

2000-2001 -45º – World Trade Center terrorist attack

2001-2021 Phase 8 – Collapse – Financial bubbles

2021-2023 0º – Projected end of USA supremacy

USA last 7 years of unipolar world supremacy.

Human death is unavoidable regardless of wisdom and knowledge about what happened to previous dead people, and so are empires that rise and live until their inexorable collapse. Superpowers life and death patterns will repeat itself whether their leaders study past history cycles or not. Cosmic life is bigger than human life. USA last phase runs from Pluto semi-square in 2001 to Pluto return to its natal position in 2022. It is worth noting the year 2001 amazing synchronicity between Pluto semi-square (45º), the historic empire transition from decadence to collapse and the September 11 terrorist attack. Now, during their last phase from 2001 to 2022, the USA will not give up its supremacy without a full fledge military, political, economic and religious war. The next financial bubble burst may be fatal and global. USA will win the battle against terrorism, but will lose the supremacy war against the rest of the world, where contenders such as China are already preparing themselves for the opportunity to fill the vacuum. This process started in 2001 and most USA power strategies miserably failed ever since. We are now seeing a growing world chaos that will likely expand into a worldwide war during the next 7 years until USA final supremacy collapse around 2022-2023. This will only mean the end of USA supremacy but not the end of the USA. As Britain continued to exist after its 1950 superpower collapse, so will the USA. By that time, China will still be in the early stage of its superpower cycle. A bi-polar world supremacy consensus USA-China will emerge for decades to follow.

Comments on this critical issue are welcome.

This topic is of the utmost importance for every one of us. We are not consulted about the world destiny, but some preparations could be very helpful for our survival. I am very interested in hearing your comments. Humans and superpowers will grow from birth to death. Nobody has found how to prevent tree leaves to brown during Fall and falling in Winter.
