A few predictions for Greece: Late 2012-early 2013

Here is a quick look at some transits over several important points in Greece’s chart [Jul 24, 1974, 04:00am EET, Athens] for late 2012-early 2013. I only had the energy to look at the immediate few months ahead and this isn’t a comprehensive summary.

Among other things, Uranus and Pluto will form a few tense aspects triggering issues like sudden upsets/demand for freedom/transformation/reforms/etc. Since Uranus and Pluto move slowly and go back-and-forth a few times over the same degrees in the chart, they will continue triggering the same points (issues) over a long period of time (years) until those issues are resolved. The issues of transformation/reforms and upsets/pushback over these changes will continue through 2015—Jan and Sep/Oct of 2015 could be the times of some important/final decisions regarding Greece’s relationship with other countries. In general, if Greece is still in the EU by May of 2013, the push for exit and associated tensions may be quite high in May, but again, it’s quite possible that the final-final 🙂 decision about whether to “divorce” EU will not happen till 2015.

I included some notes explaining symbolic astro meanings of the planets, aspects & houses—these are simplified and yes, there are other transits happening and other astro techniques that can be applied (e.g., progressions and Solar Arcs) to get a more complete picture. Feel free to dig deeper. I just wanted to shed some light on where I am getting my predictions from. Your insights may well be better than mine; moreover, your own judgment is the only one that ultimately matters. 🙂

 

2012

Nov 30-Dec 01: Possibly upsetting news about domestic situation and/or upset/anger vocalized over issues related to the state of healthcare, elderly care, availability of food/basics, etc. Likely, a push for action to overturn some old rules and/or get rid of old outdated structures (tied to relationships with other countries) that may no longer be serving Greece’s needs.

Key astro aspects: Mars (anger/action) opposes (tension) Mercury (news/communication) and Saturn (authority/restrictions) in Greece’s chart. Both planets are in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care); Mercury rules 4th (domestic issues/nourishment) and 12th houses; Saturn rules 7th (partners/enemies).

2013

Jan 8-9: High hopes for some relief and positive change in Greece’s status in the world (e.g., hopes that international help is coming, and/or, hopes that international events or some laws passed at that time will improve Greece’s social status and bring relief).

Key astro aspects: Jupiter (expansion/law/international affairs) opposes (tension/push-pull/culmination) Greece’s Neptune (hopes/dreams/illusions) in the 5th house (fun/creativity) ruler of the 10th (social status/government/large corporations).

Jan 21: Opportune time for making long-term changes in the country’s approach to providing for its citizens to ensure everyone is safe, nourished, and protected (that people’s basic needs are met)—some restructuring involving a more disciplined/organized approach initiated or implemented at this time should be beneficial long term. This same/similar issue will likely be revisited/continued in the third week of March and then in late Sep.

Key astro aspects: Saturn trines (harmonious energy/easy to express positive qualities of the planets) Mercury (news/communication) in Greece’s chart. Mercury is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care), ruling 4th (domestic issues/nourishment) and 12th houses.

Feb 4: Good time for developing/finalizing some long-term partnership agreements with other countries—these will likely involve clearly identifying responsibilities of all the parties and will require limitations/discipline to implement. This same/similar issue will likely be revisited/continued in early March and then in late Sep/early Oct.

Key astro aspects: Saturn (authority/restrictions) trines (harmonious energy/easy to express positive qualities of the planets) Saturn in Greece’s chart. Saturn is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care), ruling 7th (partners/enemies).

Feb 17-18, Jun 7-8: Possibly upsetting situation related to domestic stability in terms of healthcare, elderly care, availability of food/basics, etc. Likely, a push for major transformation of systems responsible for providing food and care to masses; discussions of these issues may escalate; losses in these areas are possible (e.g., cuts to healthcare), but this could also be an opportunity to drastically restructure these systems so they function better. Some related announcement is possible on Feb 17 (e.g., about a change in some laws related to the public service sector [teachers, police, healthcare, etc.], or, about some international decision that affects job situation in Greece, etc.).

Key astro aspects: Pluto (death/rebirth/power) opposes (tension) Mercury (news/communication) in Greece’s chart. Mercury is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care), ruling 4th (domestic issues/nourishment) and 12th houses. On Feb 17, Mercury conjuncts (uniting of energies) Jupiter (expansion/law/international affairs) in Greece’s chart. Jupiter is in the 9th house (international affairs/laws), ruling 6th (jobs/ public service sector). Mercury transit is a one-day quickly-passing influence, but could coincide with an announcement about some international ruling.

Mar 13-14, May 11-12: Likely some major distress related to relationships with other countries (EU?); possibility of losses/limitations through these associations and/or feeling that partners (other countries) are exerting too much pressure (in a dictatorial kind of way). The underlying issue seems to be about facing relationships openly/responsibly (7 & 12 house energies are triggered—see below). There may have been lies/vagueness and/or withdrawing (by Greece), so the solution to the problem may involve not hiding from the necessary changes—some drastic change in the international relationships may be necessary to ensure that Greece’s partnerships are satisfactory and balanced (without some partners being too dominant and others lying/hiding).

Key astro aspects: Pluto (death/rebirth/power) opposes (tension) Saturn (authority/restrictions) in Greece’s chart. Saturn is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care; as well as secrets/illusions/withdrawing/loneliness), ruling 7th (partners/enemies).

Apr 9-12: Possible confusion over the national identity and/or domestic policies. Some choice(s) may be unclear/confusing, like there may be some confusion about in which direction Greece should proceed as a nation to remain true to its identity/self-image & to address its people’s basic needs (i.e., food, shelter, safety, etc.).

Key astro aspects: Neptune (hopes/dreams/illusions) opposes (tension) Pluto (death/rebirth/power) and Moon (nurturing/emotions/basic needs) in Greece’s chart. Both planets are in the 4th house (domestic issues/nourishment); Pluto rules 5th (creative self-expression /entertainment) and Moon rules 1st house (identity/self-image/new beginnings). At the same time, Mercury (news/communication) crosses over the Midheaven (social status/publicity/[worldly] achievement), while Sun (self-expression/vital core energy), Venus (money/pleasure) and Mars (anger/action) pass over Greece’s Chiron (wounds/healing) in the 10th house (social status/public matters).

Apr 29-30: Likely a situation involving international affairs—discussions/decisions/laws being passed—could be an overabundance of optimism/overpromising/over-expecting not firmly rooted in reality. Parties involved may feel optimistic and in self-congratulatory mood, but it would be prudent not to promise more that can be delivered.

Key astro aspects: Jupiter (expansion/law/international affairs) squares (tension/conflict) Jupiter (expansion/law/international affairs) in Greece’s chart. Jupiter is in the 9th house (international affairs/laws), ruling 6th (jobs/ public service sector). Also, on the 30th, transiting Mars (action) opposes (tension) transiting Saturn (limitation) = “something’s gotta give”/“trying to break through the wall to move forward” type of energy—general frustration, and a likely down day for the market (i.e., DJI).

May 11-12: Possibly upsetting situation related to domestic stability in terms of healthcare, elderly care, availability of food/basics, etc. Likely, a rebellion against limitations/stress caused by any ongoing (or in-the-works) transformations of systems responsible for providing food and care to the masses. Considering that Pluto opposes Greece’s Saturn on the same dates, there could be riots/protests/opposition to the reforms [reforms that either are proposed by other countries and/or affect Greece’s relationships with other countries].

Key astro aspects: Uranus (sudden upset/revolution/rebellion) squares (tension/conflict) Mercury (news/communication) in Greece’s chart. Mercury is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care), ruling 4th (domestic issues/nourishment) and 12th houses.

May 20-24: Likely some crisis/need for action to break the tension related to ongoing distress in relationships with other countries (EU?). Possibility of sudden upsets/riots/eruptions associated with international relationships, likely along the lines of rebelling against perceived infringement on Greece’s freedom by the international community or by specific partners/countries. This issue will likely be prominent in the news, esp. on May 23, affecting the market (probably market down the week of May 20, but then actually going up on some optimism on Mon, May 27).

Key astro aspects: Uranus (sudden upset/revolution/rebellion) squares (tension/conflict) Saturn (authority/restrictions) in Greece’s chart. Saturn is in the 12th house (healthcare/end-of-life-care), ruling 7th (partners/enemies). Venus (money/pleasures) and Mercury (news/communication) square (tension/conflict) Jupiter (expansion/law/international affairs) in Greece’s chart. Jupiter is in the 9th house (international affairs/laws), ruling 6th (jobs/ public service sector).

Additional thoughts: Some optimism/relief/external help may come around mid-July—some improvements in finances/well-being and in relationship with other countries/multi-national organizations may be expected then. I’d have to look closer at all the aspects & their interactions to get a complete picture, but at a glance, it seems mid-July through Aug might be a somewhat more optimistic/easier time for Greece.

    Jan 21, 2013:
    ~Eurogroup released a statement on Greece (http://www.consilium.europa.eu/uedocs/cms_data/docs/pressdata/en/ecofin/134936.pdf). It reads: “The Eurogroup notes with satisfaction that the MoU milestones for January, agreed between Greece and the Troika, have been achieved… ”

    As predicted, on March 13, almost two-week-long discussions with Troika lenders ended w/o a deal: “Greece postpones reform deal with creditors” (http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/afp/130313/greece-postpones-reform-deal-creditors-finance-minister). The creditors will be back soon, the article states.

    I wish Greek people all the best. I have no personal stakes in any of this. I do think it’s noteworthy and interesting that planetary transits to a country’s chart coincide with observable events, such as above.

    For the US, the next major transit from Pluto to natal Saturn will take place in late Dec 2015, when Pluto will square US Saturn = major reform regarding finances/banks and how the country earns/saves its money—this could be very drastic (Pluto symbolizes death & total transformation).

    Re May 11-12 tensions/domestic instability: I see that there was a teacher’s union rally on May 13 and a 24hr strike by civil servants on May 14. On May 10, the teachers announced plans for the anti-austerity strike; government banned their strike and so teachers’ union “parent body,” a civil servants’ union organized a walkout on May 14 in protest.
