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.

Astrological predictions for 2017....

Predictions for 2017 and beyond. The world will be very polarized, radicalized and volatile. It is difficult to forecast, but these are my guesses.

  • UK triggers article 50 but then gets involved in a new political crisis involving Brexit. Social tensions rise considerably in the country. Scotland pushes for a referendum in attempts to join EU.
  • Spain: Catalonia pushes for a referendum (fears of a regional conflict could start)
  • Italy gets a bailout, due a bank failure. A renewed Euro crisis, It might influence some European elections in 2017.
  • A big unknown, and hopefully I am wrong, but it is likely that anti-eu nationalists win either in France or in Germany, despite how unlikely it seems now. This is important, because, despite all the crisis, the other country - either France or Germany - will lead an isolated, fragmented and surviving European Union afterwards, even if opposed by the US, UK, Russia and euroskeptic East Europe countries and despite increased IS attacks and a new Euro crisis. But against all odds, the EU and the Euro survives. 
  • Netherlands pushes for an exit of the currency too.
  • Polland and Turkey might push for a stronger regional and authoritarian power status.
  • Trump builds the wall. Some deportations begin. But its more show and propaganda.
  • Trump scandals continue. Faces scrunity of the election hack and Putin links. 
  • US economy in good shape in 2017, but will suffer considerably by the end of the decade.
  • The most negative thing. Trump will get involved into major wars. When? That´s the question, but he will agressively trigger them, between now and 2022. Perhaps Iran, Koreas and later China. Initially a cold war with China, including trade war and cyber war. US likely to be involved in a major physical war by 2022. Australia and India will probably be involved too. It will considerably change the integrity of the US, perhaps with a breakup into separate blocks.
  • Trump and Putin ties are initially good, but later ties sour. Despite that everyone focus in the Baltics, Russia might create a conflict in Moldova or the Balcans. If it´s the Balcans, then a crisis starts about how other european countries might interveene.
  • Uber presents first flying cars, sometime between 2017 and the middle of next decade.
  • Alien disclosure not likely in 2017, but instead later in the 2020s.

Uranus in Taurus. Political backlash against the status-quo, could lead to devastating wars

URANUS IN TAURUS and GEMINI - 2017 to 2031

A pattern of economic crisis (2010) > popular political revolts (now) > major wars (2024) > new world order (2031)


The transit of Uranus between Aries and Cancer (2010 to 2031) is consistent with a pattern of sudden great historical changes. Expect them!

What happens?

- During the transit in Aries and especially Taurus, ECONOMIC CRISIS (marked in yellow) usually happens. As existings leaders become highly unpopular, a backlash of RADICAL POLITICAL REVOLTS AGAINST THE STATUS-QUO develops (marked in red). This is expected between 2017 to 2024 and in fact it is already happening as I predicted ever since 2007.

- During the transit of Gemini, such radical political upheavals lead to DEVASTATING WAR (marked in blue) This happened in 70% of the cases. In the remaining cases, the big wars started in the transit of Cancer (so slightly later). In all cases, except two, EUROPE was the battleground of the war, in the other two it was NORTH AMERICA. The scale ranges from the America civil war and German Peasant war, to the WWII. This is expected between 2024 and 2031.

- During the transit of Cancer, significant politicial and European-wide political rearrangements happened (marked in green). Often a NEW WORLD ORDER emerges. Sometimes in form of historical revolutions (marked in orange). Often a period of economic recession, alongside with the reconstruction from the war times. This is expected between 2031 and 2038.


1934 - Following the Great Depression, Hitler rises to power. Great Purge in Russia. Events leading to the WWII unfold across Europe. Chinese civil war.
1941- World war II
1948- End of war. Many changes worldwide. UN and NATO established. Steps towards an EU. Independence of India.

1851 - Against the background of economic crisis and the Irish famine, and after the 1848 revolutions, radical conservatism emerged in Europe. Italy and Germany progressed to unification, France under dictatorship. Taiping rebellion (Chinese civil war) starts. British Raj in India. Gold rush in America and social tensions prior to American civil war 
1858- Civil war in America starts. British raj in India
1865- Unification of Italy and Germany. Long Depression starts. Paris Commune.

1768 - Stamp act, popular revolt and American revolution starts,
1775- America Revolutionary War, a global conflict involving Spain, France and UK.
1782- Famine and economic crisis across Europe. French Revolution begins

1685 - Glorious revolution in UK in 1688 
1692 - (nothing else significant happened)
1705- War of Spanish Succession starts, another major worldwide war.

1602 - Time of Troubles in Russia (nothing else significant happened). Religious tensions in Germany
1609- Religious tensions and political tensions deepen
1616- Thirty Year War, a devastating Europe-wide conflict

1519 - Spanish conquest of Americas. Luther protestant revolution
1526 - German Peasant War (an European-wide conflict). Siege of Vienna. Mughal Empire in India
1533 - Protestant revolutions continue

Who will likely cause it? Trump!

From what we saw above, we could expect the political tensions to grow ever since 2010 until the end of this decade. We already seen a few examples of brewing tensions (Brexit, Russia, Trump, China, Isis, Turkey, EU). It is highly likely that by 2022 or 2024 these tensions develop into a war that could be devastating. Historically this war should be linked to the political backlash events that already happened (Brexit, Trump) or might still happen.

In most likelihood, Trump could trigger a breakdown of a number of situation across the globe: a conflict with China or in the Koreas, a conflict in Europe due to Russia, a conflict with the Islamic world or, just by words, trigger further popular anger across Europe that leads to civil wars or a breakdown of the EU. It is unlikely that we will see a global war like WWII (I speak of these reasons why in other previous articles), but instead we could expect a massive regional war. Examples could be between the US and China, Russia and parts of Europe, or with the Islamic world. This is the most likely "worst case scenario", which tends to happen 70% of the times, historically. The possibility of a mix of trade wars, cyber wars and hacked elections, is another possibility, albeit new.

There is also a change that civil wars are only located to either the US or one or two of the major countries in Europe (Brexit and France are other risk factors too). There is a minor change that no war happens and only major political events - like the breakup of the integrity of the EU or the USA - becoming the dominant historical event (this is a "best case scenario").

The possibility is (estimated at 90%) that we might see either the breakup of the EU or the USA, in the next 15 years, irregardless of whether a major war occurs or not.

Historically, there hasn´t been a period in recent Uranus in Taurus transits, dominated by constructive historical changes. Except for things in the background like new scientific revolutions and inventions.


SATURN IN CAPRICORN

Saturn enters Capricorn for a 2.5year transit in 2018, and it has done so in the past in the following years:
1988 - this marked the end of the Soviet Union and cold war. The Berlin wall fall in 1989.
1959 - the start of the Vietnam war, and two years later, the Cuban Missile Crisis
1929 - stock market crash and the start of the Great Depression
1900 (nothing special happened)
1871 - Paris commune and two years later, a stock market crash, start of Long Depression
1841 - period of economic depression

Saturn in Capricorn is correlated with economic depression and also with changes between the relationship of North America and Russia. Also important political historical changes can happen in Europe (about half of the times). This could be linked to what we might see between 2018 and 2021.
