A preview of each decade until 2050 (Uranus in each sign)

2010-2017 Uranus in Aries (last time 1927-1934, 1844-1851, 1761-1767)
grand economic crises, civil unrest, political extremism, riots and protests, important regional wars,in summary a period of crises, by 2014 most European powers and the US are greatly affected, a sort of "everyone is by itself"
2017-2024 Uranus in Taurus (last time 1934-1941, 1851-1856, 1767-1774)
bottom of economic crises, large-scale wars (possibly in East Asia and Middle East), uprisings or revolutions in Europe and Americ (by muslims, or against them, by left-wings or by right-wings), important figures with great power for change or destruction, there might be nukes
2024-2031 Uranus in Gemini (last time 1941-1948, 1856-1863, 1774-1781)
Big revolutions in global order, economic expansion and scientific revolution, motto is "we want to be free and independent", a completely reformed type of society and new political model, new forms of energy, that might be used for transportation, etc

2031-2037 Uranus in Cancer (last time 1948-1955, 1863-1870, 1781-1789)
Rise in patriotism and defending own countries, possible new global treaties, revolutions, birth of countries, attention to (muslim) minorities, or the minorities that were the focus of the problems of the 2020s, ET disclosure?
2037-2044 Uranus in Leo (last time 1955-1961, 1870-1877, 1789-1796)
Rise of superpowers and great ambitions (think cold war and napoleon), perhaps after the events of 2020s and the assumed ET disclosure. Continuation of the great importance of global treaties and distribution of powers, formation of continental blocks and unions (perhaps global government?). More focus in fashion and on the masses having fun and adopting new concepts, new forms of communication (like the TV, Lamp and Radio) Great construction of new infrastructures (for flying cars or spaceships? or computers?)
2044-2051 Uranus in Virgo (1961-1969, 1874-1881, 1796-1803)
The start of great technological advances (computer, radio, etc), new industrial revolution! Artificial Inteligence, time travel, space travel, alternative medicine and spirituality? Some possible brinks of war by maniac powers, a hippie-like state, enphasis in revolting against the established status quo, and a renewed emphasis on enjoying life, a back to the land movement and respect for nature, preocupations with environment but much scientific advance too.

Wikileaks and Uranus in Aries versus Pluto in Capricorn

Once again, we are observing the corrupt power of governments becoming revealed. Pluto in Capricorn tends to bring the dark side of governments and corporations to surface, punishing the abuse of power.

We observed it this year, through Wikileaks, the scandal of Climategate, the BP leak in the Gulf of Mexico, and the near-collapse of the economies of several countries. The current conjuntion of Mars with Pluto in Capricorn is so strong, that we observe the wide impact of the Wikileaks disclosure, the Korea crises, and the Euro crises.

This is only the beginning. As Uranus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, we will see a clash between the radicality of some individuals (Uranus in Aries) seeking to crash down the power of corporations (Pluto in Capricorn), and the other way around, the power of corporations and governments seeking to crash down the populations.

We observe these dynamics with the the masses protesting against bank bail-outs and people organizign bank runs (such as net 7th December) but the governments (and banks) demanding even more of people.

The Wikileaks is just the latest big example: one invidual (Julian Assange from Wikileaks) revealing much more in one single day than the whole mainstream media did over the past decades. He pushed so far, that surely there will be casualities and the vision that the world has from the US will never be the same again. This was a diplomatic 911!

On the other hand, Assange is being persecuted, and his website attacked by hackers. More likely, the secret services are the ones exerting their dark hand of power here. Still, more negative examples, we have single individuals, North Korea's Kim, or Iran's Ahmedinejad, with the potencial to start large scale destructive wars, even nuclear war.

This is a bit of repetition of the 1930s, 1840s or the 1760s, with the unique impact of people like Gandhi, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Karl Marx, Darwin, Benjamim Franklin and Georg Washington. Weren't they also rebels?

Uranus in Aries is a time for rebels and unique movements, and as Uranus makes a long square to Pluto in Capricorn, this will be a long period of protests, scandals, clashes, conflicts and uprisings. For the good, and for the bad. Ultimately, there will be large scale revolutions when Pluto enters Aquarius, and a completely transformed world.

Remember, it is the large powers that are being targetted (banks, corporations, states, military, religion). Watch carefully this trend!

Remember this intense period (Korea, Irish/Euro crises, Wikileaks) was predicted here about one month ago, in the former threads:

Mars in Capricorn in December: North Korea and Economic trouble (playing with fire)

Playing with fire, with North Korea
We are approaching a dangerous time, I hate to say. Most of the largest wars in the past 100 years, started either when Mars was in Capricorn or in Libra, and less often in other cardinal signs or in Leo and Scorpio (see below). They also tend to occur when outer planets like Uranus or Pluto, are in cardinal signs. To give you recent examples, 911, Iraq war and 2009 Gaza war, all started with Mars in Capricorn. Mars will be again in Capricorn this December, also trigering the cardinal T-square, and conjuncting with Pluto and the North Node: doesn't feel good.

We have already watched North Korea making an attack on the South a few days ago. This is already a manifestation of the Mars/Pluto combination in Capricorn. I would be worried, because the US and South Korea will stage another military drill, this Sunday. Last time, this happened was in late July, also at a time of a cardinal climax activation, and North Korea threatned nuclear retaliation. Doing again the drill, after this recent attack, looks to me as they are playing with fire! Hopefully nothing will happen, but astrology warns us of the bigg risk involved.

Widespread protests and strikes
This week, there were also widespread protests occured in London, Rome and Portugal. This is an effect of Mars and Mercury moving already very close to the cardinal climax! Last time there were widespread protests in France in late September, we were having another cardinal activation. This is a new round of civil protest. Europeans plan a run on the banks for 7th December, do you think this will become a new form of mainstream protest?

Countries facing bankrupcy
In March (another cardinal activation, this time in spring echinox) Greece was on the verge of bankrupcy, now it's Ireland. We are watching all sorts of cardinal climax manifestations. Population are unhappy and with Uranus in Aries people will be pushing more often the protesting button. In ten years or so, we could probably watch large scale revolutions in at least one or two countries of Europe or North America.

Wikileaks also promised to published disclosure of many more American secrets, this time they say it will be changing history. Last time was in late July. Again, wikileaks also seems to function when the cardinal climax is being triggered. So, we have wikileaks, the Korea threat, and European economic meltdown, as the key events of this cardinal climax of 2010, not so far away from what we have predicted back in 2007.

Agressive weather and natural disasters
Another manifestation of cardinal energy is that weather events become more extreme, like the Dust Bowl of the thirties. I would say cold and snowy winters, dry and hot summers. Look out for example for a very cold winter approaching. But some of the next summer might feature extreme heatwaves. Once again, we shouldn't be playing with carbon emissions! Geological phenomena (like the Icelandic volcano, or the Chile earthquake) will also occur in next years. As the collective becomes aggitated, so the planet mirrors this, giving rise to some disasters. It could be that we will become more humble in face of our planet, maybe in a couple of decades, when Neptune transits Aries.

The future
I think we will witness some relief late in 2011 and 2012, as Jupiter trines Pluto. There is still some likelyhood for civil unrest in July 2011 and July 2012 as Mars transits Gemini and Libra. After the summer of 2012, things will intensify much more. The charts of the major European countries start to become affected by the cardinal square (UK, Germany, France) as well as the US. This suggests that the economic situation will worsen by then to a scale similar to that of the great depression. It will be a complicate social situation. It's also possible that instead we see more riots in the streets because of unemployment, the stock markets could be under control but the populations facing a difficult situation. Or, we will involved in a series of regional military tensions that could break out in wars in 2013 and 2014. These are dire scenarios, I am not very confident things will stay as they are now. People under Uranus in Aries often spiral out of control.

The worse and the best
The worse of Uranus in Aries is political extremism, fanatism, violence, authoritarian tendencies (like Hitler or Stalin), nacionalism and separatism. Pretty much North Korea, Islamic extremism, Israel, China and US military and the Tea Party come to my mind. The positive side is that people will become more assertive, challenging the status quo with revolutionary ideas, freedom and independence, and also much invention, a new sort of identity and ideas. Gandhi, Darwin, Thoreau, come to my mind as examples.

Where was Mars when the largest wars in recent history started?
(you might wanna skip this and read the last part of the article)
start of WWI, Mars in Libra
Japanese invasion of Manchuria, Mars in Libra
start of Spanish civil war, Mars in Cancer
start of Sino-Japanese war, Mars in Scorpio
start of WWII, Mars in Capricorn
start of 1948 Arab-Israeli war, Mars in Leo
start of Korean War, Mars in Libra
start of Suez Crises, Mars in Aries
start of Vietnam war, Mars in Libra
start of Cuban Missible Crises, Mars in Leo
start of 1967 Arab-Israeli War, Mars in Libra
start of 1973 Arab-Israeli War, Mars in Aries
start of 1983 nuclear tension, Mars in Leo
start of Gulf War, Mars in Capricorn
start of Kosovo war, Mars in Aries
start of NATO bombing of Jugoslavia, Mars in Scorpio
911, start of Apheganistan war: Mars in Capricorn
start of Iraq war: Mars in Capricorn
start of Lebanon war: Mars in Leo
start of Georgia war: Mars in Libra
start of Gaza war: Mars in Capricorn
December 2010? Mars in Capricorn

We shouldn't be playing wars anymore!
Even worse could be in March 2020, Mars, Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and South Node, conjuncted in Capricorn. This happening at a time of Uranus in 5º Taurus (last time was 1937) could mean a deadly combination. We shouldn't be risking our civilization with the threat if nuclear weapons! A more positive combination by then, is that this is also a position very often of revolutions, Pluto was in same degree during American Revolution or the Protestant Revolution in 1524. No need to worry, we have first a long and eventful decade ahead.

Approaching Mars and Pluto, incoming brutality in world events

What a heavy and intense couple of days.
North Korea attacks South, and fears that the conflict might become an all-out war, violent student protests in London, the economic crises within Europe, particularly in Ireland, Portugal with its largest general strike today, possible being the next one to be the focus of attention, China and Russia stop using the dollar in their trade. What a couple of days of change!

Look out for the next couple of weeks.
During the past decades, many major wars have started during Mars in Capricorn.
We might see a major war breaking out in December, and more violent protests.

And watch out for the possible bank run arranged for 7th December.

Who said Saturn is limiting?

Saturn is everything but limiting. Saturn is confronting with who you really are.
Saturn only limits you if you are not being yourself!

For example, I was single before Saturn transited my 7th house, now I am committed. Saturn help me finding a meaningful and lasting relationship.

Saturn is now transiting my 9th house. Does it limit travel? Hell no! It even forces me to travel because that's my nature and true dreams. Saturn only confronts with that you already are! Is this travel because of work reasons? Also no. I am doing the travels I always dreamt to do. Saturn gives manifestation to your dreams.

Saturn can be effortless and painless.
Saturn forces you to take decisions, that's the real "pain".
It's only a pain if you're not yet living as your true self!

Pluto in Capricorn II- Uprisings against capitalism and religion, political extremism, economic proteccionism and abuses of power

What could cause this? We could think of this economical crises resulting in deeper treaties and agressive and power-abusing measures, manipulation and clashes between powers, people will be pushing world treaties, alliances, military and economic power-abusing treaties, world currencies, world governming, or at least large blocks such within Europe or North American Union. This will be dominating ideas, but not necessarly in practice in 2013-2016. As we get into 2013, defiance actions will be also happening, like Luther and Benjamim Franklin. We can think extreme political ideas like the Tea Party, independence movements in America, within Europe (think the break-up of UE, NATO or break-up of Spain, Belgium or Italy, the failure of the Euro or the Dollar).

The popular uprisings could be nationalistic, patriotic, anti-immigrant, or even arab intifadas, within Europe or the US. This will be large by 2016-2017, this will be a low point, not only economic trouble, but the large trouble now is large social unrest or even chaos, nuclear tensions or terrorist attacks, political extremism, etc. This of course will result in revolutions, sieges of wars by 2019-2023. Another trend is religious extremism, could be radical islamism within Europe (even causing sieges, terror or intifadas), or the europeans revolting against this, in patriotic movements, or even with the adoption of millitant atheism. Probably people will be protesting against religion or politics. Perhaps against capitalism, and the abuses of governments and banks, which have caused an economic recession lasting for more than 10 years in 2008-2020. Perhaps against the millitary if there is another major war (likely by 2014, or by 2019-2022). Perhaps even some environment radicalism.

Think US, England and France as countries obviously affected by this. Think India too. I also think Spain will be affected and to a smaller degree Germany. I think the US or NATO will suffer a major defeat at this time, as the British suffered against the American colonies. This could be China, North Korean, Iran or Pakistan. As this culminated into the decision world war, world revolution, world union or world chaos, this tipping point will linger between now and 2022, either global peace is enforced or there will be large wars or regional uprisings against this global status quo when Pluto transits Pisces in 2040-2080. Think for instance of Islamic uprisings or wars continuing through the next decades. Please note that I'm a firm believer in multiculturalism, freedom and pro-imigration. I don't assume that these specific events will happen, they are possible trends, based in astrological cycles. The general theme will be "uprisings", and this may or may not cause wars. This might be uprising from a economic-political basis (recession or independence) or religious (religious extremism or against religious extremism).

Another possible trend could have to do with alien disclosure, or environmental radicalism. Or it could be large climate change causing large migrations. Something will be, I just dont know clearly what. Look for the beginning of whatever this is by 2016-2022, and later even more clearly by 2033. This will have to result in either the descent into global anarchy, or global enforced peace in the middle and later part of this century.

Comparison of Pluto transiting same degrees and important events:
1524-1525 uprisings, 1527-1530 sieges/revolts, 1552-1582 wars
1772-1773 uprisings, 1775-1778 revolution, 1800-1830 wars
2016-2017 uprisings, 2019-2022 revolution, 2044-2074 wars

Predictions for next years:
2013-2016 the beginning of events, unstability worldwide begins, abuse of power
2016-2019 large uprisings, large social unrest, defiance and political extremism
2020-2025 revolution, wars, siege and uprisings, a shift in many countries
2030s "protestant" conflicts/terror, start of a new "industrial revolution"
2050s global enforced peace, further "revolutions" worldwide

What happened when Pluto in Capricorn in each country, the last time?

What happened when Pluto in Capricorn in each country, the last time?

Pluto will be in Capricorn in 2008-2022, and Aquarius in 2023-2042. What do you think this influence will bring in the following years? Often we can get an accurate picture of what will come, by investigating what happened in previous cycles

Pluto was last time in Capricorn in 1762-1776, and Aquarius in 1777-1796.
What happened in each country at this time?
  • Pluto in Sagittarius brought the Seven Years War
  • Pluto in Capricorn brought worldwide dominance of the British Empire
  • Pluto in Aquarius the consumation of American and French Revolution
  • Pluto in Pisces the Napoleonic Wars and later the peaceful Victorian Age.

Between 1754 and 1762, France and the British Empire fought a large war in the American colonies, that later increased to become a world-wide conflict known as the Seven Years War. The Spanish, the Russians and the Austrian Empire allied with the French, while the Portuguese and Germans allied with the British. The British Empire came victorious in 1762 and claimed greater power over the colonies in North America and India.

The American Revolution occured as a consequence of the British victory and increased dominance. In 1765 a stamp act by the British created anger in the American colonies. In 1767 further taxes created more discontent. In 1770, popular revolts in Boston started which led directly to the American Revolution (such as the Boston Massacre in 1770, or the Tea Party in 1773). The Revolution was proclaimed in 1775-1776, but the Independence war lasted until 1783. The main events of the Revolutions occured then when Pluto transited between 10º Cap and 10º Aqu.

Spain declared war in British Empire in 1779, and allied with the American colonies. The British Empire lost the war, and was left with a large political crises. France was left in deep financial crises in 1776, after losing the colonies war. Spain losing the war, also become less of a global power.

At this time, Russia was having the ruthless rule of Catherine III, which sucessfully transformed Russia into a major European power. An uprising also occured there in 1773, but did not result in any revolution. Germany (Prussia at that time) also become a major European power. So the theme with Pluto in Capricorn, from these several examples is power abuse, rising to become a major power or suffering a major defeat, and being confronted with the possibility of a large revolution against the status quo.

In 1783 a volcanic winter caused by Laki Icelandic eruption, caused further trouble in most of Europe, mostly famine and popular unrest. The French Revolution started in 1789 and lasted until 1799 (Pluto in Aquarius). After 1800 (Pluto in Pisces), the Napoleonic wars devastated Europe, and many Latin and South America countries declared independence. It is also interesting how the French defeat in the Seven Years War resulted in the French Revolution and later in the Napoleonic Wars, that changed Europe. But once again, the British Empire emerged larger and victorious afterwards, originating a long lasting period of world peace that lasted until the first World War.

Before Pluto was in Capricorn in 1516-1530, and Aquarius in 1531-1550.
What happened?
  • Pluto in Sagittarius brought the discovery of Americas and worldwide trade
  • Pluto in Capricorn brought the conquest of American and Protestant revolution
  • Pluto in Aquarius brought the colonization of Americas by Europeans
  • Pluto in Pisces brought the French Wars of Religion, the Protestant wars.

Important events at this time were the foundation of the Spanish Habsburg Empire in 1504-1521, Luther protestant revolt in 1517-1521, the conquest of Americas by the Spanish in 1519-1521, 1522 Magellan circumnavegation trip, the German Peasant Wars in 1524, the foundation of Mughal Empire in India in 1526, the sack of Rome in 1527 and the siege of Vienna in 1529, the protestant secession of England in 1530, and the French Wars of Religion in 1562 and Eighty Years War in 1566. So, you can see the overall theme of power and dominance until 1530 (Pluto in 10º Capricorn), with revolutions, uprisings and colonization occuring after 1521 (Pluto in Aquarius), and religious wars in 1560s (Pluto in 10º Pisces).

What might happen now?

Now we can speculate that when Pluto enters 10º Capricorn in 2013, world events will start to heat up, exactly as they did at the time of unrest in 1521 and 1769, at this time the world powers will be pushing at its maximum extent its power and manipulation. Large scale uprisings will be occuring by 2016-2017, as they did in 1524-1525 and 1772-1773 (think the tea party or larger popular revolts). This will result in either revolutions, wars or sieges in 2019-2022, exactly as it did in 1527-1530, and 1775-1778.

Mars transiting through your natal chart

Transiting Mars is a very interesting cycle to follow if you keep a diary. Discover when Mars transits each of the angles of your natal chart (ASC, IC, DSC and MC) and relate to the changes that happen in your personal life. Because this cycle last 2 years, it is very important to follow several cycles and check what has happened in your life when Mars transited the same zodiacal signs.

Have you notice those coincidences? Like I had very important events related to my intimate relationships in summer 2010, summer 2008, summer 2006 and summer 2004, every 2 years, because that's when Mars transited my seventh house!

Mars transiting the 1st and 2nd house entails a new crises, where we feel to push a new direction and a new freedom and personal space.

When Mars transits the 3rd house, we already has major developments in our personal life, this is a very dynamic and active period, good for travel and meeting new people.

Mars transiting the 4th, 5th and 6th (the IC) entails another deep personal shift, very much related to the same theme of the first house, but now with significant solutions, a whole new significant inner meaning. So, often we manifest by now a new direction in our life, but also end up breaking relationship, having changes of residence, new jobs, living in new places, etc.

Mars transiting the 7th, 8th and 9th, is related much social and relationship activity. This is a new period unfolding on your life. By the 9th house, we start looking for new horizons again.

Mars transiting the 10th and 11th (MC) deals with we have been living, and is a reality check. We have some important changes, in career, or in our location, we enter a new stage of living. We might feel concerned about what we have achieved, and confront what we have manifested, we look now for future horizons, new career and personal directions, a kind of preparation for the whole new dynamics when Mars enters the first house again. We have a short break when Mars transits the 12th house, we feel less dynamic, less social, turning more inwards, more sensitive, in full contact with our dreams and inner needs.

A personal assay about the 3rd, 7th and 11th houses

The third of this series of articles will focus on the 3rd, 7th and 11th house. While, the fire houses (1st, 5th and 9th) relate to new beginnings, our path and personal identity, gaining motivation and new horizons, and while the earth houses (2nd, 6th and 10th) relates to the practicalities and the manifestation of those promises encountered in the fire houses, the air houses (3rd, 7th and 11th) relate to exploring further ideas beyond those worked during the transits in the earth houses, and also to more relationship and social contact.

3rd house - Redefining self identity with new ideas and exploring new activities
The house of education, communication, siblings, and short travels is not only that. If under the first house we define and set a new identity and direction, and in the second house we work to manifest that, also by defining what which we own and value, under the third house we become aware of our limitations by encountering and interacting more with the circunstances that surround us. In a word, we learn, we expand outwards. We wish communication, to explore the realms that are around us, by using what which we own and value. First we do this by living on the field of everyday experience, by trial and error, and gradually we develop our intelligence and experience. Often, transits here start with scattered ideas about ourselves, but then the ideas go deeper near the cusp of the following house. It's also under this house, that we encounter the first major social contacts. The 3rd house is a mutable and everchanging impulse under the third house, but as a transit progresses through our natal charts, this social contact will become more cardinal/important (seventh house) and finally become established by the time it reaches the fixed nature of the eleventh house. Planets or transits in this house tell us how significant it is to explore new ideas, new activities, new travels, new learning, new contacts. When planets approach the cusp of the fourth house, we are already exploring a kind of mental revolution that will go very much into our core, and change us in an important and lasting way.
I experienced this when both Saturn and Jupiter transited this house in 2000, and although I suffered a major depression, I completely changed in face of a new personal and social identity. I can also relate very well to the cycle of Uranus transiting my first, second and third house. Under the first, I completely change myself, and open up for new ideas, I began experimenting much more with life. Under the second house, this assume more the form of new relationships and a strong desire to reinvent my career. Under the third, I am seeking different forms of experiences and activities through which I can learn and define myself, exploring new interests.
Natal planets in the 3rd house will increase the impact of the vision of the interaction between ourselves and the world, and what that can do for us.

7th house - balance ourselves with the expression of ourselves in the outer world
The house of relationships, but not only. This marks the point most away from the ascendant, we are reaching towards others, and definitively this house marks a climax in social contact because planets here progress towards the tenth house. If you follow a specific transit cycle of a planet, you will notice how social activity increases as planets approach the seventh house and past this house, the focus becomes more and more global-oriented. The importance of the descendant cannot be understated. At this point, what we have set as a promise under a first house transit, now comes into major manifestation (usually at the end of the sixth house transit, which tends to be a period of a major crises), and it's kind of balancing itself. You can expect major personal, relationship and career developments with transits in the seventh house, perhaps even more that those with the fourth or tenth house. If under the first house we define a direction and an identity, under the seventh, we define both a direction and identity but while considering the relationships and the outer world around. Natal placements here will be important, as we will gravitate towards learning experiences through others, under the theme of that specific planet. The basic key of this house is to balance ourselves with the expression of ourselves in the outer world. I had transits of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in this house: always they have related to major activity around relationships and developments in my career/personal life.

11th house - Grasp new solid visions, reform social contact and personal goals
I am so happy to write about this house. I was born with a 11th house Sun. So I am very aware of the key meaning of this house, perhaps too much because of having other personal planets here. The 11th house relates not to friendships, but to an expanded social vision. People relate to friendships because that's the easiest way to have a social contact further than that of a close intimate relationship or a traditional family setting. But that's too little. Did you know what was the traditional meaning of this house? Good fortune and wishes, and that is very true. Medieval astrologers had experience over centuries of many different lifestyles and societies, so we should not reject their empirical knowledge! What does it mean good fortune and wishes? Well, as a planet transits through the natal chart, first we define our identity and direction, then we encounter relationships and social contact, develop a social position and career, but then what? Is it only friendships what's left? No, this house is a second before the major transition that is the ascendant, when we set to begin a whole new cycle. So, this house it's kind of putting conventional ideas behind, our career and relationship at second plan, and look ahead, and envision new goals and dreams, a kind of good fortune, because this should be a direct self-expression of our being (11th house opposite 5th) but with a social focus. Humanitarian interests, group activity, grassroot movements, international environments, creative groups, self-improvement groups, political activism, all are practical manifestations of a 11th house energy. To reform our contribution to the outer world, as a higher mission. The fixed nature of the 11th house solidified ideas and visions, and social contact. The air nature of the 11th house liberates the authority, rigidity, seriousness and status of the tenth house. A key feature of this house is to develop a good balance between the individual and social contact, the community. the story goes like this: we have recently struggled to achieve (10th house). But achievement is a pedestal, how to do next with what happened before (success or failure) is now our main challenge. We seek to reform our failures, either by adopting a rebel attitude and facing social isolation, by becoming a revolutionary and a reformer, or by integrating our success with our peers, and local groups. In angular house the invididual comes to experience himself, in succedent houses he meets his greatest tests, in this case social, career and long-term goals. Please write me if you need more information about this house. I had nearly all transits in this house, and several natal planets as well.

3rd house: redefining self identity with new ideas and exploring new activities
7th house: balance ourselves with the expression of ourselves in the outer world.
11th house: grasp new solid visions, reform social contact and personal goals

Year by year, an astrological preview of next decades (with predictions)

1. The winter of 2010-2011 (December and January 2011)

We are before a major crises period. Global crises deepens

Conjunction Pluto and North node in Capricorn December 2010. Mars triggers cardinal T-square in mid December and Full Moon/ lunar eclipse in solstice day!. Watch out for a possible big event between mid November to mid January 2011. This is the practical manifestation following the cardinal crises of spring-summer 2010. This is kind of a shift.

However it will be only after 2013 that the world events will heat considerably! Remember that this configuration started with the Uranus, Saturn opposition in late 2008 (Obama and economic crises). This major global change is just starting. Watch for late spring, early summer 2011 as more unrest and uprisings (3-17 April and more in early July) and again in late spring and summer of 2012 (18 July). These are the very early beginnings of the revolutions or conflicts to occur within the next 20 years.

2. Powerful SHIFT between spring 2013 and spring 2014

Global crises becomes big, possible destructive trends: conflicts, riots, economic depression

Watch first for the great spring entrance of Uranus in mid Aries in spring 2013 (27 March after). Mars and Jupiter in Gemini in 2013. Then whole period September 2013 to July 2014 will be intense! Starts with conjunction Saturn and North node in Scorpio late 2013, with solar eclipse in November 2013! Both Uranus and Pluto in powerful historical points, 14 Aries and 14 Capricorn). Things will heat!

This is when major terror or regional wars might have global consequences, a deeper global recession. Something like Middle East or East Asia could be a problem. For sure there will be some major international crises relate to everything from climate, war, oil, energy, food, etc, gaining expansion from this year onwards. I call it a crises of social, economic, political, military, corporation and environmental issues. Political extremism will be in the increase as well as the start of larger uprisings.

I imagine stuff like riots in western countries, mass protests, tax revolts, scandals, banks restricting withdrawing of money, and great numbers of unemployment
. This will likely affect the US and Europe. This will bring revolutions that will remembered in history, sometime within the next years. It's also likely that some sort of short-term natural disaster, like a solar flare, volcanic winter, famine or pandemic, occurs. There will be much scientific invention, brand new advances. Watch for a climax around March-May 2015. Until 2018, destructive trends, crises and pessimism transforms the world until a shift in 2019.

3. The period between spring 2019 and spring 2021.

Early signs of "revolution"

Conjunction Pluto, Saturn and South node in Capricorn in 2019. April to June 2019 is important as Mars crosses from Gemini to Cancer, to oppose this. Jupiter and Mars join the conjunction by spring 2020. This is a beginning of what will set the great events during this next decade. By April 2021, with Jupiter and Saturn moving to Aquarius, and Uranus to Gemini, the revolutionary and technological trends will start. So watch for the period between April 2019 and April 2021 for the early signs of that revolutionary wave. There can be a nuclear stand-off or a nuke blowing by this time. At the same time, the trend for larger uprisings will be developing.

4. The Revolutionary waves of 2022-2028

2022-2024, Early stages of a critical event: "revolution", "conflicts" or "something else"

Remember Uranus enters hot spot in 2022 followed by 5 years of revolutions (mid Taurus to Gemini). Summer 2022: Saturn Aquarius, Jupiter and Mars in Aries; but most important its the transition of late 2022 to early 2023 Mars retrogade in Gemini, the sense of impulse for change and revolution grows a lot now. Then comes summer 2024 to early 2025 with Mars-Jupiter in Gemini in late 2024 and the node conjunction with Neptune, Saturn in Aries in early 2025. This is a sure shift point!

2025-2030, "Revolution/event", new socio-political models, great technology expansion

July 2026 Mars again in Gemini, Saturn in power point of Aries. Slowly revolution transform into dramatic advance: July 2028 Uranus-Mars in Gemini, First months of 2029 start with power conjunction Mars-Jupiter in Libra. "Revolutions" will occur within this window frame, either as a crescendo or some event that results in major global transformational consequences. Almost for sure, the US will suffer a great reconstruction, this can be something like a break-up of the country, a second America revolution or civil war or the formation of the New America Union.

Around the world, the socio-political structures will change greatly. Of course, European countries will also face serious transformations. New models, new world treaties. This can be either the break-up of our civilization into further anarchy or towards a unified world government. This is also a likely time for alien disclosure, with all its major implications. Independently of this, great scientific advances will occur (stuff like new forms of energy, transportation and communication). I also think something epic like the first humans landing on Mars, ET life found, human cloning, etc. As 2030-2032 comes, revolutions transforms into a new structure, new socio-political-economic models, and a new idealism.

In my humble position, I can assure you that most above will probably occur in some manner. I spent many hours, many days, several years with these cycles and predictions. While there is the free-will from every individual, there are also important energetic and historical patterns involved that indicate major shifts for our civilization ahead around 2013 and again in 2025.

Years of major shifts or events marked in bold. Years of relatively minor shifts marked in italic.

2011, another major event or shift like happened in late 2008. unrest in late spring
2012. unrest in late spring (early signs), global crises deepens
2013 major events start to unfold. things heat considerably after this year!!
2014 things heat considerably at this year, destruction/transformation, shifting point
2015 destructive unstable transformational tendencies, and still a shifting point
2016 still destructive unstable transformational tendencies (critical moment of change)
2017 still destructive unstable transformational tendencies
2018 still destructive unstable transformational tendencies
2019 early signs of major change ahead, important global changes start now!!
2020 early signs of major change ahead, major treaties around now
2021 early signs of "revolution" or conflict that might start now
2022 early stages of these "revolution" events
2023 sense of impulse for change and revolution grows considerably
2024 climax approaching, this is the end of an old global order
2025 "revolution/conflict", the start of something new, major events start this year!!
2026 "revolution/conflict", great impetus for "revolution" and dramatic advance
2027 "revolution/conflict", slowly a new beginning, a shift is occurring
2028 very great energy of "revolution", conflict, advance and expansion
2029 end stages of "revolution", great technology and social expansion, optimism
2030 the early stages of new global order and structures

A personal tale of the amazing accuracy of some astrological transits

Sometimes, it's amazing the accuracy of certain astrological transits and degrees.

11º Sagittarius is my natal MC. Today Mars transited this and I quit my job because of another offer. It was a huge event. 2 Years I was busy starting looking for a new job I couldn't find. 4 years ago, I moved to another country. And 6 years ago, it was the first day I went living abroad! Amazing! Always in same degree!

And I have more examples. Several times the transiting Sun passed this degree, in the first days of December, I felt the rush to do something else in my career. This is partially because I have Uranus natally placed in 2º Sagittarius, close to the MC.

When Pluto transited my 11º Sagittarius MC in early 2000, I entered University and suffered a major depression; a smashing long-lasting transit, that changed me completely. When Saturn opposed that degree in 2001, I was applying to move abroad for the first time; when Jupiter transited same degree in mid 2007, I quit a former job, and decided to move again abroad. It's amazing the same theme recurring again and again, under the same degree.

Do you have similar stories?

Warning! BIG CHANGES predicted for December 2010! North Node and Mars conjunct Pluto

This is something that most astrologers are missing!

Between November 2010 and January 2011, North Node conjuncts Pluto and triggers the cardinal T-square, while at a same time Mars join the pair and later a Full Moon (and lunar eclipse) on the solstice day. This is a major event, as big as last August's cardinal climax.

The implications of this are huge. Watch out for significant karmic/fate developments around this time: remember November 2010 to January 2011. This applies both to our personal lives and to world events. The first weeks of December will be highly charged. I can't remember of a Christmas time with so much intense astrological configurations.

Some major economic, political or military event, this November or December?

In global affairs, I don't know exactly what this means, but watch for some powerful, potentially destructive events, because Pluto is involved, and with global implications, because this occurs in Capricorn. Two possibilities are another economic meltdown or a new war. Alternatively there might be a big scandal, or some other sort of crises. It may involve banks, governments, corporations or the military, because this the node conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. At worse, this can be a serious economic crises, popular revolts, a war or a terrorist attack. A major natural disaster is another probable scenario. These are just possibilities and maybe might will happen, but still I think at least one of these things will make major headlines this November or December. Remember, the windows of possibility occurs during the whole period, starting now and until January, although Mars also joins the pair in the first two weeks of December, adding intensity and dynamics.

Those who have personal planets or angles, in the last degrees of mutable signs and early degrees of cardinal signs could feel this as a particularly intense, challenging and dynamic period!
Watch out those born between 18 and 27 December, 18-27 June, 18-27 March and 18-27 September. Pay attention to what happened during the last weeks of July to determine what this might be about.

I can give you examples of previous time when the nodes conjuncted a cardinal alignment. Between spring 1968 and summer 1969 (south node conjuncts Uranus in Libra), in 1991 (conjunction north node with Uranus, Neptune and Saturn in Capricorn), in early 1931 (conjunction north node and Uranus in Aries). Other interesting examples: WWII started when south node conjuncted Saturn, and ended when north node conjuncted Saturn in Cancer, Pluto was conjuncted south node in Cancer in the Russian Revolution of 1917, south node conjuncted Uranus and Pluto in Aries in the revolutions of 1847 and 1848, north node conjuncted Saturn and opposed Pluto during the 911 attacks.

A future post will discuss the cycle of the north/south nodes in detail.

The Moon, emotions waxing and waning; psychologists, astrologers and victims of depression

Hello all, sometimes someone is born with such a natal chart, that she or he is very sensitive emotional person. She or he will respond very much to the Moon cycles, and if not aware of this, she or he might run to the doctor thinking she or he has depression or bipolar disease, or some kind of hormonal problem.

So often happens for these people, victims of emotions, to loss themselves under the fogs of Neptune, drugs and psychologists. The victim suffers and becomes addicted, and tampered with chemicals, while the doctor and the pharmaceutical industry profits.

They are so ignorant and blind to the natural cycle of emotions and energy that we go a monthly and daily basis, because of the Moon influences. If you are a particular sensitive soul, all that is takes is a specific position or transit from the Moon, and there it goes depression or irritation again! Particular sensitive souls can be those who are Cancers, Scorpios or Pisces, or have a water sign Moon or rising.

If you develop an awareness of how the Moon cycles, from new Moon to full Moon, and through the astrological houses of your chart, you will understand this cycle of emotions. Better even: you will EXPERIENCE the cycle, and be able to pinpoint WHY you feel a specific way. You will be also able to predict when some sort of emotion comes.

An excellent ideas would be follow the cycle from New Moon to Full Moon. At New Moon its when our souls are naturally withdrawn and more sensitive, when seeds for future events are planted, in our psyche. As the Moon waxes, our emotions develop, in general its a constructive and expanding period, and this culminates around Full Moon, as emotions are at their maximum power in terms of outer expression, so this is when the typical mania or irritation state can happen. If you are still sceptic, just compare what happens in parties at Full Moon with other days. Around the Full Moon, things just tend to be more crazy and expressed. Then, as Full Moon goes back to New Moon, introversion comes again, and this can be a period of deconstruction, so if we are particularly sensitive souls, we might feel depressed, or feel self-destructive tendencies. We might be craving more during this period, because the waning Moon is a period to go inwards, to meditate and listen to ourselves. The depression will be not more than a sign that you are not listening to yourself, so your inside just screams emotions, begging your conscious soul to pay attention to the unconscious.

A more thematic idea would be to follow the transit of the Moon through the astrological houses of your horoscope natal chart. This will be the topic of another future post, but in short if the Moon is transiting at some of the water houses (4th, 8th or 12th houses) that can also explain why you feel more sensitive, irritative or emotional in that specific couple of days. That happens so often with me. Knowing this cycle allows me to understand whether sometimes the issue is more career-based, focused in relationships, or just a matter of exploring some part of my inner being.
Your awareness of the Moon passage through the Zodiac and the astrological houses will enable you to discover a basic structure of energy patterns that underlies the circumstances of your life. This is actually the purpose of a good astrologer, and his or her main objective is to reveal an order or meaning beneath or within what often appears to be a random or chaotic situation of emotions and impetus. The Moon passage through the housing system is the expression of a cycle of 12 archetypal structures that relate to our life themes (self, values, education, family and roots, self-expression, service, relationships, intimacy, expansiveness, career, ideals and transcendence).

If I know where you are, Moon, I never feel lost. I always know the way.
