Grexit in 2017?

Yet another surprise might occur in 2017.

The year before Saturn moves into Capricorn and the economy begins to contract. I have long predicted that the years 2016-2020 to be very dark and gloomy, as we see a trend towards waniny cycles of the outer planets (see my research in previous posts).

Besides negative consequences to the economy from Brexit, Trump and possibly an anti-EU government elected in Netherlands, we might see another surprise: Grexit.

It has been 7 years since the whole Greek crises started. It makes entire sense that a new crises will developed there, because the entire issue has been avoided and postponed since years.

Radical politics is really the topic of 2017, as Uranus reaches a similar position in late Aries as transited in 1933, the year when things in Europe began to heat up and became radical. During such periods, countries become increasingly authoritarian, and some become dictatorships. Most have at least suffered some sort of social unrest.

It´s possible to estimate to which extend each country will become authoritarian:
- Countries that are relatively stable democracies now, without signs of radical politics will probably stay that way (unless invaded by another). Examples: Portugal, Chile, New Zealand, Canada.
- Countries that established a great increase in authoritarian trends (or great social unrest) in recent years, might be key actors in the unfolding of the greatest historical changes in the next decade, like being involved in civil wars, large wars or become a dictatorship. This was the example of Germany in the 1930s. Current examples include UK (Brexit), US (Trump), Turkey (Erdogan), Russia (Putin), Greece (debt crisis), India, Brazil.
- Countries that are already dictatorships, are likely to get involved in wars. This could include China, North Korea, Syria, Iran. During the 1930s, these included Russia, China and Japan.
- Countries that became somewhat affected by authoritarian trends and political unrest, are still the great unknown. These might stay stable, or might develop to civil wars, authoritarian regimes, revolutions. Often it depends in their geographical location according to other more agressive countries. During the WWII, the US was only indirectly affected, the UK was directly affected, and many European countries were invaded. Whilst most of Asia was affected, South America was relatively unaffected. Examples of such countries now include: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Polland and Australia.

It´s a shame that this happens. I am really a lover of democracy, freedom and a multicultural world.

It was back in 2007 that I predicted such scenario: economic depression (2010), followed by radical politics (2016), followed by civil wars (mid 2020s), based in past historical periods.

And I am going to announce another surprise prediction today!

By 2024, we might actually see Mark Zuckerberg running for US presidency. Pluto will then be in Aquarius, so it makes all the sense to see the plutonic powerful figure of Facebook CEO (social network = Aquarius) running for that position. I think companies like Airbnb, Tesla, Uber, Google, will become increasingly more powerful and involved in politics. By then, we will feel a more much upbeat sense of the future.

For Greek people struggling to feed greedy local and global oligarchies grexit would be a gift from heavens! A step for a better world for the children of tomorrow.

When the "there-is-no-alternative" way leads us straight to hell, everything unexpected is the road to freedom. Celestial message is what we need when human desires drive society to a dead-end.

Brazil is already living a state of exception. Dictatorship is right at the corner.
