Just as the news of the Solar eclipse of May 20, 2012 begins to fade the forecast for different countries does not diminish. The news reports consist of everything Taurus stands for such as currency, banking, taxation, economics, stocks, bonds and recession. Certainly unemployment, food stamps, foreclosures, and homeless families are part of the equation.
We read about the crisis in Greece, the Eurosystem, Eurobonds, the European Central Bank, the European Union summit, the proposed Financial Transactions Tax, and the World Bank forecasts on China. The news articles hint a crisis is almost upon us.
The approach of the lunar eclipse June 4, 2012 will demand the banks, and governments involved take responsibility as Greece falters. The planetary aspects involved in the two eclipses indicate it is not just a fiscal issue it is a banking problem. Taurus is about economics and policy measures, but it is also about the dynamics of social change.
The Euro came into existence at midnight January 1, 1999 with the Sun in Capricorn and the Moon in Cancer. Mercury was in retrograde in Sagittarius. With five planets in Capricorn, and Mars in Taurus an astrologer might think the euro would be problem free with the banks enjoying great monetary success, and the governments involved pleased with the new system. However, with Mercury in retrograde, and the Moon in Cancer opposing Neptune at the start of the day the system is flawed.
In 2009 Saturn began to move through the horoscope of the Euro thrusting the flaws of the system into force. By late 2010 issues escalated, February 2012 the problems associated with the Euro put the banks, and governments into a difficult position. As the planets of June 2012 intensify Europe’s predicament other economic issues add critical concerns to investors around the world.
The difficulty continues to build as arguments to save Greece, or let her go has consequence no one wants, no matter what they decide.
Helping Greece stay in the system is a band-aid, but a needed band-aid. However the aides will have to understand it will take into 2016 for Greece to recover which makes common sense at this time. Of course a recovery requires good governing and outside help.
The Euro was meant to be an economic and monetary union, instead it is a union put together too quickly, it is flawed, and astrologically placed in motion on the wrong date and time.
In today’s world the problem is power and greed, a large world population, and change within different countries due to social unrest.The social unrest is either religious, or political with people displaying frustration, anger and violence bringing leadership change.
Still in effect the May 20 Solar eclipse under the sign of Taurus, and the planet Venus ruling the sign is associated with peace and love, but the other side of the coin represents unrest, war and dictatorship in the name of giving you a better life.
