The Perils of Ignoring History: This Time, Europe Really Is on the Brink
By Niall Ferguson and Nouriel Roubini
As the euro crisis escalates, Berlin should remember how the banking crisis of 1931 contributed to the breakdown of democracy across Europe. Action is urgently needed to stop history from repeating itself.~:~
As the social-economic crisis of austerity measures in the EU ruins the lives of millions of Europeans and threatens the delicate US economy with its global domino effect, perhaps you may appreciate a view of the EU Flag/NWO unfurled article I posted in July 2011 with the transits for July 28, 2011 shown around the natal chart. You'll notice the 1989 pile-up of Uranus, Saturn, and Neptune in staid, governmental Capricorn in the 2--11 degree range of Cap, where transiting Pluto, planet of hidden wealth, transformation, debt, and general power-mad creepiness, now lurks. These midpoint pictures continue to apply in 2012--Pluto is in the degree range now--and as usual, I type aloud my common-good views on US politics and politicians who now infest our nation.
You're welcome, America! :0)
On an Eclipse Note: the above mention of the difficult events of 1931 compelled me to peek at the first Solar Eclipse of that year to check its theme and to match it up with the most current year of our era--it's the 5 North Saros Series.
In 1931, 5N manifested @ 27Ari and last occurred on May 31, 2003 @9Gem, conjunct US natal Uranus 8Gem55--our planet of revolution, unrest, rebellion, change, and radical politics. This Eclipse occurred a few days after Bush-Cheney regime insisted on invading Iraq (with Jupiter the General Rx = a bottomless pit in the money department!), as you know--and another domino effect was implemented toward global governance. (Its raptor's eye is most recently cast upon Syria as Washington and Moscow "trade barbs" over the mayhem there as certain media outlets delicately describe it.)
5N's theme includes: sudden flashes of intuition, visions (of a new world economic order, the borry sastards), and prophetic dreams. (Brady.) And of course, the highly enlightened Uranus-Neptune duo, the poster child for the Age of Reason, are very supportive of such a visionary theme.
Blog Note: a hearty Thank You to readers this week who have left encouraging comments concerning the Stars Over Washington Monthly newsletter I'm currently working on and plan to offer asap--your awesomeness makes my hours of Political Astrology work worthwhile! Jude
