The murmur of a possible shift on quantitative easing from Ben Bernanke and the US Federal Reserve certainly caused a few tremors globally. Is he being over hopeful? He’s had to pull back before and certainly he is running into major astrological problems with his Solar Arc Pluto conjunct his Neptune Mars conjunction anytime from now over the next few months – that looks devastating and a dead halt. So something is going wrong in his planning. In addition from mid July transiting Pluto is trine his Mars/Uranus midpoint right through till late November which is hugely stressed.
That certainly fits with the pressures looming on the US Fed Reserve Bank chart with later August starting a run of panics with public confidence receding sharply. Tr Saturn is in a depressed conjunction to the Fed Reserve Mercury Moon in late Aug/Sept and the failure-ridden tr Neptune square Mars picks up late Aug till early Oct, returning late Dec till late Jan 2014. Tr Saturn is also in a jolting square to Uranus in Oct and a confidence-dampening square to Jupiter in Nov. Plus a shock and a collision of sorts anytime between now and late August as the Solar Arc Sun squares Mars.
The USA 1776 chart looks to be in the grip of false hopes financially which will turn to disappointment along the way. Tr Neptune is trine the USA Jupiter at the moment and on and off till late 2014.
There’s an almighty jolt as well over the next six months as the Solar Arc square Uranus on the USA chart draws exact. But it is 2014/15 when the problems really start to bite with the USA Cancer Sun square Saturn in Libra starting to pick up the tr Uranus square tr Pluto which is going to be quite an obstacle course with certain financial implications from the deprived/hardship tr Pluto square Saturn.
The international stock markets recently certainly took a fit of the vapours over both the central bank of China and the US Fed Reserve tightening the screws on easy money.

Stock Market charts are notoriously tricky to read but there are similarities on the Dow Jones (26 May 1896 9.11am) and the Shanghai SE (19 Dec 1990 9.16 am) charts.
The Dow Jones has tr Neptune square Sun and tr Uranus sextile Pluto. While the Shanghai SE has tr Neptune opposition Solar Arc Jupiter and tr Uranus trine Solar Arc Pluto. Tr Neptune has been running on that degree since early May which is undermining but the effect didn’t kick in till the Uranus transit slotted into place. The FTSE First Trade chart (3 Jan 1984 10am) similarly has had tr Neptune hitting two key midpoints and again tr Uranus square Sun as their stocks plummeted.
These running Neptune and Uranus influences are in place for another 18 months – so a volatile time ahead.
The Bank of China chart is looking mighty concerned at present with Solar Arc Uranus conjunct their Saturn and tr Neptune opposition both for the next 18 months – and there is worse to come thereafter with tr Neptune square their Sun across mid decade as well as the devastating tr Uranus square tr Pluto hitting their Neptune. Their economic travails won’t disappear in a hurry that’s for sure.
