USA 2012 - into troubled times

by Marjorie Orr December 31, 2011 10:42 AM EST

The USA tiptoes like the rest of the globe into an uncertain 2012 though in marginally better shape economically than some at the end of the tumultuous 2011.

 

What lies ahead? On the USA country chart there is a sprinkling of good news – as well as dollops of the other sort – but starting on the upside. Transiting Pluto opposes the Sun/Jupiter midpoint from late February to the end of June, repeating over the New Year. This can be over confident, too pushy, inclined to over expansion but at least it has enthusiasm aplenty. There’s also a transiting Uranus square Jupiter in April, Oct/Nov and early 2013. It usually brings good fortune suddenly, lucky breaks with consequent relief all round as restrictions disappear albeit briefly.

 

That’s the upside. The rest is downbeat. Tr Neptune trines the USA financial Venus in April/May and repeating through 2013 which will be lacklustre on the economic/cash front with disappointments looming large and some panic around as a result.

 

Even before that tr Neptune is trine the US Federal Reserve Saturn Pluto in March, repeating Aug/Sept 2012 and over the New Year into 2013 which is confused, undermining, a sense of losing grip. Even worse there’s a panicky-failure tr Neptune square the Fed Res Mars in May/June and repeating through 2013. So there are in a general gloom.

The Dow Jones which ended 2011 on a par with the start unlike most other sinking global market indices is having a definitely worse 2012. There is a restrictive Solar Arc Saturn square Sun, exact in 6 months’ time; with the even more severely blocked/meltdown Solar Arc Pluto opposition Mars exact in 8 months’ time. There will be a few highs in March, Nov/Dec but in general the trend will be down and worsening through 2013 when tr Neptune is square the Dow Jones Sun.

 

On the USA chart there are a few other hitches and glitches. Tr Saturn is in a stuck and discouraging square to Pluto and Mercury late March to May, Aug/Sept. There’s a serious jolt from Solar Arc Saturn conjunct Uranus exact in three months time, though could trigger early. This could have economic implications and will be a surprise of an unwanted variety.

 

There is also Solar Arc Pluto which is moving its way from the square in 2011 to Mars to the conjunction with Neptune in late 2012. We haven’t seen the full implications of this yet since remarkably little happened when the initial Pluto Mars aspect came exact. It looks devastating, risky, confusing, has either nuclear associations or a natural disaster.

 

What is certain is that the 20th May 2012 Solar Eclipse is not well positioned for the USA since located to Washington, DC it puts Mars conjunct the Midheaven opposition Neptune on the IC square the New Moon conjunct the Descendant. The 4th June 2012 Lunar Eclipse has Neptune conjunct MC, Pluto conjunct Descendant trine Mars conjunct IC – so is equally fraught located to Washington. This may not be exclusively an economic indication of trouble but there will certainly be significant events for the USA and Government in the aftermath – it looks risky, panicky, indecisive, connected either to water or oil.
