Uranus square (90o) Pluto only occurs four times in the 250 years between 1800 and 2050. And the world should be very thankful for that.

 Uranus and Pluto are both mighty, all powerful planets capable of enforcing massive change on individuals and even on the entire world. As they once again duel with each other for the first time since the 1930s Great Depression at the incredibly stressful aspect of 90o between June 2012 and March 2015, watch out.

 During the previous three mighty Uranus square Pluto duels (see below) in the sky, America and the world found themselves in Great Depressions which lasted a decade and more. This time around, the most difficult economic time should be reached between June 2012 and March 2015.

 Uranus square Pluto duels also bring with them the potential for massive surges in fanaticism (the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party in 1933), one-sidedness, violence, enforcing decisions by putting a gun to someone’s head and plain outright maniacal destruction.

 So what happened to the American and world economies during the last three times Uranus was square Pluto? Each time there were severe economic depressions:  

1. Uranus in Sagittarius 90o Pluto in Pisces (January 1820 to September 1821).  

The Panic of 1819 was the first major peacetime financial depression in America. It was followed by a general collapse of the economy until 1822. Excessive land speculation fuelled by the unrestricted issue of paper money by banks and businesses was a major factor. (This sounds like Quantative Easing at present. Clearly the Fed does not read history books!) Land values dropped by up to 75%.

2. Uranus in Leo 90o Pluto in Taurus (October 1876 to August 1877). 

The Panic of 1873 which led to a four year depression in America was triggered off mainly by rampant speculation in real estate and in railroad stocks. The great American bank Jay Cooke & Co. failed and there was a near total collapse of the banking system. Bank reserves dropped by 65%. A depression broke out in England and Europe which lasted over a decade. High trade tariffs became the norm everywhere. This crisis, called the Long Depression, was primarily a deflationary phenomenon. Between 1873 and 1895 British prices fell by 44 percent.

3. Uranus in Aries 90o Pluto in Cancer (April 1932 to January 1934). 

This time period was the bottom of the worldwide Great Depression which began in October 1929 and ran for over seven years.

4. Uranus in Aries 90o Pluto in Capricorn (June 2012 to March 2015).                   

Right now the entire world finds itself again in the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression. People can see very serious economic crises exploding all over the world. There is 25% unemployment in much of southern Europe. The exploding USA total debt is now 59 trillion dollars, equivalent to $188,000 for each American. In the last five years China, the world’s second largest economy, has pumped up its money supply by as much as the entire USA banking system, and is ready to implode. Now Japan, the third largest economy in the world, is doubling its money supply.

 During the 1930s’ Great Depression (October 1929 to 1935-6) Saturn, Uranus and Pluto all transited through cardinal signs and formed hard (90o and 180o) aspects to one another. Uranus was moving through Aries and formed a mighty square with Pluto in Cancer between March 1931 and January 1934.

 Between 2010 and 2015, the same astrological cycles that showed up in the 1930s are occurring once again. Saturn, Uranus and Pluto will all transit through cardinal signs and form hard (90o and 180o) aspects to one another. Uranus is again moving through Aries. In this time the consequences (Pluto in Capricorn) of the debt explosion will manifest in a sudden, unexpected way (Uranus). One must always be prepared for unpredictable, unexpected and sudden change when Uranus forms hard aspects to Saturn and Pluto.  

 We now live in a world where every asset is at risk, just as it was during the Great Depression, the last square between Uranus and Pluto in the early 1930s. Based on the previous three Uranus square Pluto duels, world stock markets could lose over 50% of their value between 2012 and 2015.

 Pushing interest rates down towards zero (USA, Japan, European Central Bank) and also worldwide has enraged the middle class and led to the destruction of their bank interest income. Their money from interest has been stolen from them, and their bank deposits used to prop up dodgy bank loans by speculators, who now pay a pittance for the money they now borrow. The people who had money at the beginning of this financial depression have been treated with contempt by Federal Reserve Banks worldwide.

 Despite constant promises by political leaders’ to correct the debt and deficit spending of 2008-12, nothing has been done. Politicians worldwide are being held in greater contempt than ever by their own peoples, as they incessantly fight amongst themselves, instead of acknowledging we are entering the next Great Depression. Bankers and Federal Reserves have worked together to enrich the banks and others who actually caused the crisis in the first place. Increasingly, there is a feeling that governments have betrayed us. Uranus in Aries (mid 2010 to March 2019)  is making us demand more economic equality with those who control and manipulate the financial system (Pluto). This may lead to bringing down those agencies that create economic inequality.

 The sad bit of this story is that squares between planets, in this case Uranus square Pluto, cause conflict and quarreling, so that those on opposite sides of the argument get so worked up that they fight hard to stop each other from enacting even the correct choices. The Uranus square Pluto is the reason why the left and right of politics in all countries are hardening their positions, constantly insulting one another and are in no mood to compromise on anything, even when commonsense and logic says they should. The darker side of human nature is trying to overthrow common decency and compromise towards others. Clearly many difficult years lie ahead before the world climbs out of the Great Depression of 2013-17.

 And yet there is some good news amongst all the doom and gloom. Uranus and Pluto are now in a waxing square (Uranus moving away from Pluto). That is the incredibly agonizing pain of birth, not death. :)


Jupiter Transiting from Taurus to Leo

Programming done by Sergey Tarasov and Alphee Lavoie compare eleven Jupiter cycles through the Zodiac with the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) since 1872. The data shows the stock market hits the bottom when Jupiter goes into Aquarius and hits a high when it is in late Aries to early Taurus. The stock market then falls for two to three years as Jupiter goes into Leo.

 In March 2009, the DJIA hit a bottom after Jupiter had been in Aquarius for 10 weeks.

Many world stock indices including the DJIA made two-year highs as Jupiter moved into late Aries and early Taurus in May-June 2011. They then fell by 20-40% for the rest of the year.

However, when Uranus is 90o to Pluto, as Jupiter transits through Aries, Taurus and into Gemini, the stock market becomes turbo-charged and continues surging to reach all time market highs as Jupiter reaches 15-25o Gemini. Then it plunges until Jupiter enters into Leo.  

1928-32. The DJIA, the ASX (Australia) and other markets hit all-time highs in September 1929 with Jupiter around 15 Gemini. The DJIA then lost 90% of its value by mid 1932 as Jupiter reached late Leo. Other stock markets also crashed violently.

1964-67. The DJIA rose as Jupiter began transiting through Taurus in April 1964. The index fell sharply as Jupiter entered Gemini in April 1965. Then the market became turbo charged by Uranus conjunct (0o) Pluto between October 1965 and June 1966 with the DJIA surging and hit an all-time high in February–March 1966 as Jupiter became stationary at 21 Gemini. By the time Jupiter had moved into Leo in October 1966 the DJIA had fallen 25%. It took until 1973 before it reached a new high again!

May 2013-Dec 2014. Once again Uranus is square Pluto between June 2012 and March 2015.

The DJIA made an all time high in May 2013 as Jupiter reached 23 Gemini. Past astrological events suggest world stock markets have peaked for this cycle. And that : either a big drop (25% in 1966) in the DJIA and other world stock markets between June and December 2013; or a long, sustained massive drop (90% drop between 1929-32) until late 2015


Uranus in Aries (mid 2010 to March 2019).

Uranus in Aries can help trigger off when financial depressions and stock markets being smashed to pieces. In astrology Uranus rules rebellion, revolution and sudden unexpected change. Though Uranus in Aries can lead to religious or political fanaticism (e.g. Nazi Germany), it can also trigger the urge for individual freedom.

Uranus as it transits through the zodiac sign of Aries will bring about the downfall of many governments and cause social unrest, revolutions and revolt against governmental authority, as with the Arab Spring. The Arab Spring began in December 2010. Rulers have been forced from power in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen. Major protests have broken out in many Arab countries, including Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, etc.
