USA finances and the Uranus Pluto square

by Marjorie Orr June 24, 2012 10:08 AM EST

The disruptive Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn is now exact and will stay in effect till 2016. The last time the square of these two slow-moving outer planets took place with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Cancer was in 1929 stretching to 1934 through the worst years of the crash and depression. Though what happened then need not necessarily happen in quite the same way again. Astrology is rather like the old saying that you cannot s

tep twice into the same river; for other waters are ever flowing. So nothing ever repeats exactly.

 

What is certainly true is that the USA’s chart with its Cancer Sun square Saturn in Libra will be under major challenges from this volcanic combination of freedom-loving Uranus and repressive Pluto battling it out for supremacy. The strongest effects will be in 2014/15/16 when Uranus and Pluto are in exact aspect to the USA Sun Saturn. But everything from now onwards will be pointing in the direction of forced change with a good many jolts, jangles and hardship along the way.

Already the USA is heading for what economists are calling a "fiscal cliff" at the end of this year. Massive government spending cuts will kick in simultaneously with a jump in tax rates. Unless that changes it will slam on the economic brakes pushing the US economy back into recession.

The USA chart itself has the highly confused, panicky meltdown Solar Arc Pluto conjunct Neptune exact as the new Presidential Term gets under way in January 2013. Transiting Neptune is also conjunct the Solar Arc Jupiter in 2012/13 which is a sign of wild overconfidence getting punctured. There’s also a continuation from this year of the panicky-failure Neptune transits to a significant Mars midpoint and the scary, frustratedly-trapped Pluto transit to another Mars midpoint. There’ll be a few lucky breaks but also a good deal of angst and irritation.

 

The Federal Reserve Bank chart has a messy combination of Neptune and Saturn transits through 2012 and 2013. Saturn depresses and Neptune bursts financial bubbles, brings high hopes low and leads to confusion and bad decisions. Like the USA chart it limps on through 2014/15/16 in not exactly dynamic form. So it is going to be a long haul.
