Greece Nears a Tipping Point in Its Debt Crisis
FRANKFURT — Europe appeared to be lurching toward a moment of decision in its sovereign debt crisis Sunday, as Greece struggled to meet conditions for additional aid amid rising German impatience with the cost.
“Greece’s imminent default is assured,” Carl B. Weinberg, chief economist at High Frequency Economics in Valhalla, New York, wrote in an e-mail Sunday. “Without an injection of cash within the next weeks, the nation will run out of resources to service its debt.” NYT Global Business
What does Greece have in common with the USA? Prominent planets in cardinal signs – particularly Venus (USA/Greece) and Jupiter (USA). Greece’s Saturn at 11 Cancer closely conjoins the USA’s Sun and squares the USA’s Saturn. A thin-skinned and delicate situation.
National pride and self-esteem are caught up with assets in the bank. Greece’s Ascendant at 13 Cancer is in exact conjunction to the USA’s Sun. This and the aforementioned tight cross-aspects link our fate with Greece’s from the point of view of a shared crisis of debt to asset ratio.
Whereas the USA isn’t likely to default on its debt now or in the future, Greece’s difficulties and faltering alliance with EEC reveals a country under great duress.
If default is imminent, then Greece’s meltdown along with ongoing struggles in Spain, Italy and Ireland, could spell a worldwide depression.
I don’t want to be the spreader of gloom and doom, nor do I want anyone to mistake this tiny bit mundane astrology with anything like financial expertise. The idea of a European or worldwide depression comes from columns written by nobel laureates in economics such as Paul Krugman and Joseph Stiglitz. Nouriel Roubini of NYU is another of my favorites who is “affectionately” nicknamed Dr. Doom.
I’d go with what these experts are saying. I sought to find planetary evidence in Greece’s chart of the coming collapse which isn’t any secret.
There’s a cardinal grand square in Greece’s chart that’s formed up by the transits of Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. The world is set for 7 Uranus-Pluto squares between 2012 and 2015, and clues as to how the aspect will play out have already been revealed. First, by the formation of the grand cross in the USA’s chart over most of 2010 and now in Greece’s chart.
Uranus signal sudden, violent, breaking apart. Pluto signals the kind of long-term erosion and disintegration that causes huge collapses. Connecting the dots to the USA’s chart and Greece’s chart, we’re looking at financial collapse (Venus and Jupiter are the money planets).
Along with plutonic erosion, we’re also witnessing draconian slapdowns of the most vulnerable in America and across the globe. As nations struggle to make ends meet (while not daring to upset or inconvenience the uber-rich), those least able to fight or advocate for themselves are being thrown upon the sacrificial alter of predatory capitalism. The poor must pay for the sins of elite.
There are no easy outs or convenient fixes left in the world’s goodie boxes.
Neptune hovering by retrograde in Greece’s 8th house of debt signals a draining out. A siphoning off of not only cash, but life force. A nation dying, or rather, fading and melting away. Neptune’s square to Greece’s VERTEX in the 5th house of speculation and gambles signals a fated encounter with the kind of meltdown signaled in stock markets.
