Greece in 2015 — identity transformation with transiting Uranus crossing Ascendant and Pluto squaring it

With Greek elections on Sunday, Jan 25, 2015, I looked at Greece’s natal chart [ Jul 24, 1974, 04:00am EET, Athens] (e.g., see Curiously, on January 27, 2015 transiting Uranus (freedom, independence, rebellion, revolution, sudden start/stop, surprise, impulse, lightening strike, flash, electricity, etc.) will cross Greece’s Ascendent (identity, goals, vision, purpose, well-being/vitality, beginning of a new cycle, etc.). This indicates a surprise change in identity/goals, rebellion against the old vision, and acting on an impulse (to achieve more freedom). Indeed, news outlets already report that anti-austerity Syriza [won] election” ( Uranus’s influence, corresponding to feelings of excitement and rebelliousness, will be felt the strongest till about Feb 22, 2015 (1 degree past exact conjunction, or, 1 degree orb).

At the same time, transiting Pluto (major transformation, life-death, rebirth, etc.) is forming a tense square aspect to Greece’s Ascendant. This aspect indicates external and internal pressure to transform Greece’s identity, goals, vision, and sense of purpose. Pluto’s idea of transformation is typically something pretty intense (first death, then re-birth, as in Phoenix rising from ashes). Pluto’s influence, corresponding to greatest pressure for and against identity transformation (am guessing this will involve relationship with European Union), will be felt the strongest till about Jan 30, 2015 (1 degree orb). Later in 2015, Pluto will once again push for transformation; the strongest pressure will be felt July 11, 2015 – December 4, 2015 (especially around August 31 and October 20).
It will be interesting to see how the events unfold. Back in November, 2012, I wrote “…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.” (
