It is difficult to know exactly when some patterns will manifest in the physical world, or whether the events will have less or more impact in terms of what was sensed beforehand. I tend to be uncannily accurate sometimes, and at other times I’m years off, with no way to know at the time the pattern is picked up. But my spirit guides tend to be highly accurate, regardless. Sometimes even I tend to be  amazed when my predictions come true! This year many of last year’s predictions will continue in force! It is much easier to see the events than exactly when they might transpire. It’s the Illusion of Time! Plus, some aspects for dramatic change have been in force since 2011.
