After all the jubilation about the financial Armageddon of the fiscal cliff having been averted the stark truth is that the compromise agreed has only pushed America’s problem down the road slightly. There will be tough times ahead.
The USA Federal Reserve chart, 16 November 1914 9 am Washington, DC, is facing a worrisome transiting Neptune trine its’ Saturn Pluto conjunction till the end of January 2013 which is undermining, confused, eroding the foundations of solidly robust organisation. Panic will mount from late February onwards as tr Neptune squares the Fed Res Mars and that is definitely bad news financially. All of those influences cycle and recycle till late 2013/early 2014.
It looks like the trickiest year for the Federal Reserve since 2009.
On the USA 1776 chart there’s certainly a sense of a downhill slide, with transiting Neptune undermining the financial Venus and over-hopeful Jupiter in trines right through 2013/2014. The real reckoning may be delayed until 2014 which is when tr Pluto opposes the USA Sun and tr Uranus squares the Sun. Tr Pluto will bring about the destruction of old securities, usually feels paralysed and stuck, and the rebuilding of new structures takes time. Tr Uranus will be jolting, a time of sudden surprising changes, perhaps an upsurge of popular sentiment in favour of the underdog. It will not feel stable until that passes by late 2015.
