Written 20 Nov 2010 (before the Arab uprisings), link here: Pluto in Capricorn II- Uprisings against capitalism and religion, political extremism, economic proteccionism and abuses of power. 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 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 decade.
The general "uprising" trend of the decade 2010-2020:
Written 29 Nov 2010, link here: 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

During the next months and years, there will be more individuals coming out with radical protest measures against the status quo!
On extreme natural disasters:
Written 25 Nov 2010, link here: 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
And about the specific Japan earthquake/ tsunami / nuclear crisis. It occured exactly on the day Uranus was entering Aries (11 March), and the cardinal crisis was triggered, as predicted:
Written 23 Dec 2010, link here: In March, we find the start of more aggressive energies. If you have planets or angles in cardinal degrees, watch out for the next two periods: 10 March: Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries. 18-21 March: Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in 12º Aries, and opposes Saturn in 15º Libra (degree of many national charts); Full Moon in spring equinox. At least, we will see some DISRUPTIONS for large groups of people, this could be flights disruptions for example (as we observed now with snowstorms, and last April with the Icelandic volcano). This is the likely period for WIKILEAKS new revelations causing fears in the stock markets. Dates of more energy in 2011: 10 March, 18-21 March, 2-4 April, 18-22 AprilIn the months ahead, much change is expected to happen in April (due to Mars in Aries). I would follow closely the dates aforementioned. More protest energy is likely to occur in July, after the summer solstice (due to Mars in Gemini), and also by mid September (due to Mars in Cancer).
The Japanese disaster (which resulted on a global crisis) is occurring now as Mercury and Jupiter oppose Saturn in 13-15º Aries / Libra axis, which are degrees where most western nations have their angles, and most important natal planets. Therefore, the activation of this axis is at least, the spark of a large global crises.
The axis is going to be transited by Uranus and Pluto in the years ahead, 2013, 2014 and 2015, which could result in a further bigger global series of events. By 19 April 2011, the same degree is going to be triggered again (this might be another development of big events?). It is a preview of what the next years might bring.
It could be linked to what is happening now (endless economic crisis, crash of resources and energy, nuclear energy and radiation, population displacements, natural disasters, uprisings)
