The image above depicts the "World Horoscope" for the year 2012. Actually a "World Horoscope" looks like a minimalist natal chart. We keep on it the "collective" planets (Uranus, Neptune,Pluto) and the intermediate, "social" ones (Jupiter, Saturn) - while we "strip" it from any personal planet. On a "World Horoscope" the sign of Aries stands always on the left and the sign of Capricorn on the top!
As the "intermediate" planets and the outer ones move slowly, their positions for the whole of 2012 will be - broadly - as you see them above (Jupiter - being relatively faster - will transit in the sign of Gemini too and Saturn in the sign of Scorpio from October on).
The most "elevated" planet in this "World Horoscope" is Pluto (the planet in black, on the top). Pluto actually stands on the very "Zenith of the World" - in the sign of Capricorn that is! Why is this "World's Zenith" so important? Because any "social - collective" planet standing there somehow dictates the "spirit" that will prevail in humanity for the period of its stay there! With this in mind, we can foretell the "spirit" of 2012 as being somehow dark, extreme, plutocratic, ruthless, transformative and potentially "mortal" - as planet Pluto is!
Remember "Hades" in mythology? He is the same (tricky) deity as Pluto. Hades dwells in the underword and is usurping the souls of the deceased people and their fortunes too. Actually Hades is a "quintillioner", as he accumulates over the centuries the fortunes of all the deceased people! Is this ringing a bell to you? The International Monetary Fund is apparently becoming the "Hades" of our Era, as it is ever more accumulating the fortunes of the various "deceased" nations - triggering a huge world financial crisis and bringing the spectre of poverty and famine over previously prospering populations! Goldman Sachs is allegedly ever more infiltrating the governments, indirectly ruling a large chunk of the world! Our governments are apparently getting ever more corrupted and irrational, reaching to the point of even conspiring against us (supposedly they are spraying us with chemtrails, they are massively administering us vaccines containing harmful to us toxic ingredients etc.) With dark and "diabolic" Pluto sitting currently on the "Word's Zenith" our governments seem more "dark" and evil than ever! And this situation will aggravate in 2012, as Saturn will move into Scorpio (and will form a "mutual reception" with Pluto in Capricorn).
The planet most prominently "rising" on this "World Horoscope" is Uranus (the blue planet on the left, near the "horizon"). Uranus represents the kind of "energy" that is actually "rising" worldwide (we will analyze this in a while)! Uranus currently stands in Aries, over the "World's Ascendant" point. This "World's Ascendant" is a sort of "gate" and out of it torrential fresh energies are released upon humanity - and upon each single individual in particular. If the "World's Zenith" represents the "ruling class" - as we saw - and Plutocracy then the "World's Ascendant" represents the plain individuals and Democracy. Pluto on the "World's Zenith" makes the ruling classes ever more corrupted and oppressive while Uranus on the "World's Ascendant" makes the individuals torrentially rebellious! And as Pluto and Uranus are blatantly clashing in 2012 (by a very harsh astrological aspect called "square") we are going to witness tremendous battles between the people and the ruling classes in the months ahead!
Uranus is the "Big Awakener"! As it reached in the last couple of years the "World's Ascendant" it has torrentially started awaking the individuals all over the planet, inciting them to take the power from their corrupted governments into their own hands! A brave new individual is born now, far less inactive and "dormant", more partaking to the society and to the collective, more enlightened, visionary and even "cosmic"!
Finally, planet Neptune in Pisces will probably bring a huge wave of poverty worldwide but - at the same time - it will change us as human beings, it will unite us deep in our souls, making us more sentimental, empathic versus our fellow humans and charitable! Neptune in Pisces will revive romanticism.
