What’s going on these days? Is the world going crazy?
On Monday, May 10th, at the moment this story is written, because of what happened in the European countries, the worldwide stock market has been rocked by an incredible and sudden plunge (May 6th), after a hectic week.
Now it sounds like the crisis is over, after the Europeans have agreed on how to save the Euro. As a result, stocks posted their biggest one-day gain in more than a year. So, is the Euro really saved?
Is the crisis over? From an astrological viewpoint the answer is a resounding NO!
For those familiar with the language of the Planets, all that is no surprise. We can truly identify the kind of events that may occur during a Saturn-Uranusopposition.
Think back a bit about what happened in late 2008, when on November 21st the first opposition between these two guys occurred: the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 47%.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? For months some astrologers have been warning about the special alignment – in formation – involving Saturn-Uranus-Pluto over the summer.
Who are the guys involved? What does the picture look like?
Many Planets will be key players in a very real, very stressful ballet. We call it a cardinal T-square because it will take place in all the cardinal signs – Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
The first of these Planets, Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, who is visiting the sign of Capricorn, is asking for huge transformation. He helps to bring to the surface what is wrong and hidden to the others. He can’t stand dishonesty. The Madoff story is a perfect example.
The second one, presently in the sign of Virgo, is Saturn a.k.a the Terminator guy, a very demanding one. He strongly needs structure and organization; e.g., if the foundations of your business are weak, be ready to have to clear the mess, he will never let you go without doing that.
The third one, Uranus, a.k.a the Liberator guy, in the sign of Pisces at the moment, is the one who asks for revolution and freedom.
And guess what? They will not be alone in play. Entering into the game soon, we will also have Jupiter, who makes everything become bigger – in a bad or a good way, Marsthe Warrior who brings action but also fights, and Venus, the Lady involved in love stories but also in more valuable assets such as money and the stock market.
What do we learn from the past?
Even if Astrology is everything except a science, we can find similar planetary configuration in the past to try to anticipate the future events.
The T-square configuration bringing intense stormy energies takes shape every 80-90 years and usually coincides with major transformations in the world, economic and political crisis, weather disorders, etc.
We got a similar cardinal configuration in 1930-1931 with Jupiter-Mars-Pluto in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Capricorn.
When the conjunction Jupiter-Uranus, in action every 14 years, occurred in 1983, the heat wave – called the El’ Nino of the Century – has been huge. And when it occurred again in 1997, it has been the hottest year ever.
When the European sky has been paralyzed by the Icelandic volcano ashes cloud on April 18th, 2010, the planetary configuration was the same as on June 8th, 1783 when the Laki erupted in Iceland – as well as the Japanese volcano Asama – with Mercury, Venus and Uranus in Cancer, opposing Saturn in Capricorn, and squaring Neptune in Libra and Mars in Aries. The meteorological impact of the Laki eruption contributed to several years of extreme weather in Europe.
The cardinal T-square will bring an incredibly challenging time
Though it’s rather difficult to predict the exact nature of the events we will face, we can be sure the world will experience a major transition over the summer.
Here are the hotspot dates:
· May 27th: Uranus moves into the sign of Aries.
· June 6th: Jupiter follows, as does the Moon.
· June 8th: Uranus and Jupiter are opposing Saturn and squared to Pluto.
· June 21st: the Sun is squaring Jupiter and Uranus.
· June 26th: full Moon and lunar eclipse; the Moon in Capricorn is joining Pluto and opposing the Sun and Mercury in Cancer, and squaring Jupiter and Uranus in Aries.
· July 30th: the Moon is joining Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, opposing Mars and Saturn in Libra, squaring Pluto in Capricorn.
· August 7-9th: new Moon time with Mars, Venus and Saturn in Libra opposing Jupiter and Uranus in Aries and squaring Pluto in Capricorn.
· August 20th: Saturn squares Pluto for the third time.
Speaking of countries, the USA should be more shaken than any other by this planetary Tsunami.
On the individual level, people born at the beginning of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and those who have any Planet or their ascendant on the first degrees of these signs should experience something of a turning point in their lives as well. But all is about the way they are willing to initiate and control the changes and push for their freedom.
Here are some of the Celebrities called by the Planets: President Obama, Georges Michael, French first Lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Courtney Fox, Meryl Streep, Stevie Wonder, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Simpson, Sandra Bullock, Robbie Williams, Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue, Reese Whiterspoon, Kate Hudson, Ricky Martin, Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeita-Jones.
Nevertheless, this tough time may also raise some good changes, the ruling financial elite being forced to stop denying the reality of the others.
