Our cities/societies are getting ever weirder and deadlier! (Coronavirus & "Capricorn Climax")


Our entire planet is living now some unprecedented and even nightmarish situations, with this deadly coronavirus pandemic that has stormed upon us! Most of us are experiencing situations that no human (except for the few aware epidemiologists and Astrologers) would ever expect to live! Especially in the western world, no generation before us has lived something like this (except of course the two world wars - which did not cause the collapse of societies in the Americas). And if we put aside the so-called "Spanish Flu" (which more or less coincided with World War I), the "movie" that is playing now before our very eyes has not been played for thousands of years (the 1347 CE "black death" had not affected, again, the American continent, Australia, etc.)!

Although humankind is technologically advanced by now, it has proved to be rather "flimsy" in front of the coronavirus threat - and so far unable to produce a drug that can neutralize it! The only countermeasure (prevention - not treatment) left to us is to stay indoors (as if we were doomed to "home restriction")! If we kept congregating in public spaces, in crowded halls, stadiums, cafes, gyms, cinemas, public means of transport, etc. then we would be mourning an exponential number of victims!

Therefore, a simple, everyday move, like opening the door of our home in order to go somewhere, is now equivalent (especially if we are not in our first youth) to playing the "Russian roulette"(wondering each time "will I catch the coronavirus in the environment I am going to?")! Our home's door has been transformed into a vital "membrane", as it holds out of our house the specter of death, which is wafting now across our societies, across the cities we live in!

The average individual is constantly moving between a "public" and a "private" realm. Actually, our "public" and "private" lives meet right on the central door of our home! Outside our door lies the bustling society, our work, our obligations, the "others". Behind it lies the sacred "cradle" of our personal lives, the embrace and warmth of our family, the soothing smell of "home sweet home"! If we put this in astrological terms we could say that outside the door of our house are lying those situations that correspond to the zodiac sign of Capricorn, while inside that door the situations that correspond to the zodiac sign of Cancer! Having this knowledge, we can better understand now why we are experiencing such an abnormal and disturbing phenomenon!


In 2011 we experienced another crucial planetary shift: planet Neptune entered the sign of the Pisces, its natural "home"! In astrological literature, Neptune in Pisces is - in itself - a classic indication of epidemics or even pandemics! If we combine his energies with those of Pluto in Capricorn then the "scene" begins to get heavier (this very astrological combination was in force, as well, at the terrible Justinian plague of 541 CE)!

 Capricorn Climax
By the time we reached 2020, the momentous event of the "Capricorn Climax" - for which Astrologers (with capital A) had been preparing us for years - took hold! To understand the power of this phenomenon, think of it as having a "double-whammy" character! Which means that two events of a similar nature and power occurred simultaneously, mutually reinforcing each other: on one side Pluto is in the zodiac sign of Capricorn and on the other side Saturn (the planet that rules the Capricorn) is now very close to Pluto, forming a powerful "conjunction" with him! The combination of these two "vibrationally" similar events eventually created an "overdrive" that released colossal energies! Some "dark" and "chthonic" energies of the "underworld" have been summoned upon our cities and societies!

This "pluto-capricornian" tsunami of energies has caused astrologically this unheard of and largely nightmarish situation that we are experiencing now. The deadly coronavirus penetrated and disrupted our societies, our governments and social structures collapsed loudly, the commerce and the economy knelt down, the majority of the people have been locked in their homes and are confined as if they were prisoners! All these "exotic" events are clearly linked to the epochal phenomenon of the "Capricorn Climax", which is omnipotent nowadays!

And to explain this in more detail, Saturn's presence in Capricorn speaks for itself of "difficulties",  "deprivations" and "limitations". If we put on the stage Pluto as well, then these deprivations and limitations acquire an extreme character - insofar as people's psychology is undermined and pushed to the limits! We are seeing now in dismay, right in front of our eyes, the societies that we used to know collapsing and being radically altered (due to the "double-whammy" element I mentioned above)! And in this "mutually reinforced" hurricane, Mars' presence in Capricorn caused additional panic and brought the army to the streets of our cities (as in Italy). At the same time, Jupiter in Capricorn disproportionally magnified all these phenomena!

As you know, coronavirus does not particularly harm young people. But it is extremely threatening for the elder ones, as most fatal cases occur to those ages. We could say that this is also the result of the "double-whammy" presence of the planet Pluto (whose one of its basic "keywords" is death) in the zodiac sign of Capricorn (traditionally associated with the so-called "third age"!). In addition, the current pandemic has forced us to focus on something that is extremely tiny but nevertheless omnipotent! An invisible enemy has infiltrated our societies and is shooting us from all over the places, with us being incapable of shooting back! Our fear thus becomes even greater! All this "scenery" is clearly linked (even to a "rookie" in astrology) to Pluto in Capricorn (and to the "accompanying" Saturn-Pluto conjunction, as well)!

Pluto, however, is not a "bad" planet (no astrological element is "bad". Everything works for our evolution). But since Pluto is a powerful "collective" planet, the fate of the individuals is not of particular concern to him. He only cares about the survival and evolution of the humankind, on a "collective" level (and regardless of the eventual "collateral losses" - as our personal stories are quite indifferent to him)!

In this respect, Pluto may produce a major "cleansing" and "regeneration" of the humankind! In an extremely cruel and inhumane way, though! Ask yourself, what continent is the hardest hit right now by the coronavirus? It is not Asia, because there (especially in China) is somehow subsiding. Europe is the hardest hit, which has the most aging population on the planet! Do you understand what I mean? Coronavirus is deadly especially for the elderly or even for those younger people who have serious health problems! So in its own, very cruel and inhumane ("plutonian") way the coronavirus is now producing (if we look at it under a different perspective) a "cleansing" and "invigoration" of the very population of the European continent!

The economic and demographic plundering of Greece (astrological predictions 2020)!

background image: Sven Erik Golden "Jewels of Light"

Ten years ago, Greece was making headlines all over the world! You most probably remember why. For the first time ever, a European Union country was facing a sovereign debt crisis and there was a tangible risk of it going totally bankrupt! Not only that but (due to the so-called domino effect) the economies of many other countries in Europe (and even worldwide) seemed to be at risk because of the very Greek debt crisis!

That was quite odd! How could a minuscule economy like the Greek one affect the gigantic markets of our planet? How could Greece be responsible for the overall course of the international economy? I had the feeling that something was amiss there. Thus, I resorted to astrology in order to better grasp what was going on. I had extensively studied the national horoscope of Greece and I knew that this Mediterranean country was just coming under the grips of both Pluto and Eris! And the theme of Greece facing a sovereign debt crisis that could potentially trigger crises all over the planet resonated perfectly with the vibrations of these two planets/ planetoids (the very word "crisis" is a plutonian keyword)! The fact is though that since Pluto and Eris are two transcendental, "esoteric" planets /planetoids, under their influence things are not always as they seem to be! Usually, they are much deeper, extensive and fatal than they appear to be!

As you know, an epoch-changing assembly of planets will take place in 2020 within the zodiac sign of Capricorn! It's such a rare phenomenon that Astrologers have been talking about it for decades. They even coined a special term for it "the 2020 Capricorn Climax"! What you most probably don't know is that Greece has been for the last ten years in an ever-escalating head-on collision with the  Capricorn Climax phenomenon! You see, Greece's Sun is located (according to its National Horoscope) at 22 degrees Capricorn, at the very degree where the notorious Saturn - Pluto partile conjunction will take place on January 12, 2020! Additionally, Eris has been forming a tight square aspect to Greece's Sun (and a tight conjunction to its Jupiter - Saturn), for many years now!

I have to explain something here: there is a controversy in Greece over this country's National Horoscope. The fact is though that the Greek astrological scene is totally controlled by a "circuit" of mostly commercial, lucrative astrologers, who have deliberately set aside and marginalized many worthy Greek astrologers - just because they are not their "bedfellows"! You may read my relative article here). This "domineering circuit" (with ample access to the media) is rather unexaminably claiming that Greece is ("solarly") ruled by the sign of Aquarius!

On the other hand, I am the only astrologer in Greece stating the obvious, that modern Greece is ruled by the sign of Capricorn (you may read a relative study here). And I have my good reasons for stating this because, as it goes, the Greek "fathers" declared our independence from the Ottoman Turks on January 13th, 1822, NS (a momentous event, as the Turks had militarily occupied Greece for 400 whole years)!

Fortunately, this rather parochial view of the greek astrologers on their country's chart is not shared by the international community. Foremost astrologers worldwide (OPA's president Maurice Fernandez and Mayo's principal Wendy Stacey, among others) are considering the January 13th, 1822 chart as the National Horoscope of modern Greece.

But let me show you now the National Horoscope of modern Greece (based on the declaration of Greece's independence, on January 1st, 1822 - Julian Calendar): 

The National Horoscope of modern Greece

You can clearly see that modern Greece's Sun is located at the critical (in our days) 22nd degree of Capricorn (where Saturn and Pluto are about to form a partile conjunction). Furthermore, the Jupiter - Saturn tight conjunction in Greece's chart is forming a square aspect to the notorious Saturn - Pluto conjunction, occurring in our days! Not to mention that the recent December 26, 2019, Solar Eclipse took place right over the Uranus - Neptune tight conjunction, in Greece's chart. Maybe you realize now the catalytic effect of the January 12th Capricorn Climax phenomenon over Greece's National Horoscope. If not, then you should take a look at the bi-wheel chart below: 

Inner wheel: Greece's natal chart.  Outer wheel: Capricorn Climax on January 12, 2020
The intensity of the Capricorn Climax phenomenon over Greece's chart becomes visually obvious here. On the upper left, the transiting planets Sun, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury are all conjuncting Greece's natal Sun (while at the same time they are squaring its Jupiter - Saturn duet). The stark Lunar Eclipse of January 10, 2020 is triggering Greece's Sun (while at the same time it is squaring its Jupiter and Saturn)! Furthermore, transiting Eris has been squaring in the last few years Greece's chart while at the same time has been conjuncting it's characteristic Jupiter - Saturn duet too.

Back in the '90s, when I first noticed the current colossal planetary influences over Greece's chart (especially fateful Pluto transiting over its natal Sun, for the very first time in modern Greece's history) I got really worried. It came to me the thought that Greece was about to experience some threatening to its existence events in its imminent future, perhaps a mega-quake or even a war (Greece's eastern neighbor is Turkey, a military super-power and a local bully). We cannot, of course, exclude such type of events when Pluto is aspecting critical points in a country's chart. The fact is though that Pluto is a tricky planet and it has in store mysterious ways of manifesting its properties! 



                     Pluto's invisible tentacles over Greece!

How can we then determine, decode and interpret the full array of Pluto's influences over Greece's natal chart? Well, the archetypal realm of mythology is often a good start. In Greek mythology, Pluto is the god of the underworld, dwelling in the dark and gloomy kingdom of Hades. Extrapolating from this, we may come to the conclusion that Pluto is a supremely powerful planet (being god-like). There is a twist though: to manifest the enormous power he possesses Pluto has to act covertly, secretly, in a concealed manner, in the dark, somehow disguised or even resorting to underhand tactics! On the contrary, the more openly, overtly and explicitly Pluto acts, exposing himself to the "light of the Sun" (the domain of other gods), the more he is bound to break up - becoming ever less capable of manifesting his powers!

If we add now to the above picture the fact that Pluto is the "intruder" and the "usurper" par excellence (do you remember how he quite unexpectedly intruded, emerging from beneath the earth, the mother-daughter idyllic relation and in what a ferocious way he abducted Persephone?) then we begin to formulate an hypothesis on how Pluto might be influencing Greece. It is possible that this Mediterranean country is experiencing currently some form of ominous intrusion and abduction! Its sovereign rights might be in peril as there is the eventuality that some foreign mega-powers are trying to invisibly take over and control crucial parts of Greece! And as Pluto is the planet of death (and of resurrection - in some other realm or under a different form) Greece might be going now through a profound death-rebirth process. Its very core is rapidly decaying and is bound to either irrevocably die or be radically transformed!

Speaking of death Pluto is actually ruling it (as the god of the netherworld he is). It rules as well money
(or to be more precise the "money-energy". You may read about it here). You see, Pluto ("Πλούτος") in Greek means "wealth", "riches". We are getting here a rather inconspicuous association between "death" and "wealth" (the death of a human being is usually bequeathing wealth to his closed relatives). Furthermore, in Hellenistic Astrology, the "Second Place" (corresponding to modern Second House) was called "Gate of Hades" and it was associated with cemeteries, material possessions, and money! 

Overall, Pluto has to do with the so-called "public purse", with any kind of public funds, with taxes, debt, inheritances, etc. The sign of Capricorn, on the other hand, has to do with the government, with regulations, contraction, austerity, etc. There is though a "double whammy" hidden behind this delineation: Pluto is not just in Capricorn but is currently forming a conjunction with Saturn as well - Saturn being Capricorn's ruler! Pluto and Saturn are mutually feeding up each other here. This "double whammy" is actually forming the very backbone of the Capricorn Climax phenomenon, granting it much of its power!

Thus, Greece in the 2010s came up against a titanic crisis (as Pluto was getting ever closer to its Sun). A crisis that is considered by the experts worse than the 1930's depression in the USA! Saving money became the domineering doctrine, applied to all walks and aspects of life. Salaries were slashed, the direct and indirect taxes were abruptly and disproportionally raised and the public funds began to require higher contributions from the citizens. The life of millions of Greeks became nightmarish as the specter of poverty began hovering over their heads!


Greece before the crisis was a relatively prosperous "western" European country (ranking not very far away from the economies of the other thriving European economies). Today though its economy is reduced almost to the levels of the ex-communist, eastern European countries! The irony is that Greece requested in 2010 the notorious loans from the Central European Bank and the International Monetary Fund in order to dodge the very situation is currently experiencing and boost its economy. But ten years after, the Greek economy is stagnant, the wages and pensions have been reduced almost to half, the "Greek" banks are massively foreclosing homes - and in collaboration with the "Greek" IRS they are confiscating - with no previous notice - the meager deposits of countless distressed Greeks! And as if all this wasn't enough, the Greeks were unable to withdraw their savings from the banks, due to the capital controls introduced in 2015!


I think that by now (2020) it is more than obvious to every perceptive man/woman that all the austerity measures and those bombastic foreign funds did not substantially help Greece! They might have benefitted other people but definitely not the Greek people! In reality, almost every single Greek asset, every public utility, every vital resource (gold mines, telecommunications, airports, marinas, etc.) has been sold (often in ridiculous prices) to some foreign corporation! Even the huge deposits of oil and gas found recently within the "EEZ" of Greece - that could have yielded hundreds and hundreds of billions to the Greek coffers - seems that will be ultimately exploited by foreign powers!
 
It is worth noting too that the so-called "Greek" banks (especially the four major ones) are no longer Greek since they are majority-owned by foreign interests! The fact is that most of the hundreds of billions that the lenders "generously" granted to Greece were not dispensed to the needs of the Greek state and to its citizens but were exclusively funneled to bail out the "Greek" banks! Most of which are owned now by foreign interests! The capital though of those loans
(along with their high-interest rates) won't be paid back to the lenders by the (mostly foreign by now) banks but by the very Greek citizens! How deceitful, how "mafioso" and "Soprano" (Plutonian) is this? 

It doesn't end here though. It is also worth noting that the Greek public IRS office no longer exists and that what we call today Greek "IRS" is, in fact, an "Independent Public Revenue Authority". This authority seems to be transferring
the taxes that the Greeks are paying - in order for their state to be operational, for hospitals and roads to be built, the infrastructure to be modernized, etc. - directly to the foreign lenders! That's a humongous usurpation, which is confirming the fact that Pluto is indeed transiting currently over Greece's "Capricornian" Sun! 


                       The Plutonian demographic "contamination"

There is another element that Pluto's influence on Greece's "Capricornian" Sun evoked. An element that had initially eluded me. As I explained above, Pluto is fond of the undifferentiated masses of humans (death is after all the great leveler. All the souls in Hades are equal, as no earthly form or title is differentiating them anymore). Thus, for Pluto a white, aristocratic man of say Christian belief is exactly the same as a humble origins dark-skinned, poor Muslim! Therefore, mixing "different" kinds of people, "contaminating" the "purity" of societies, literally
constitutes a game for Pluto! And the immediate consequence of this Pluto's attribute (remember, the planet is on Greece's Sun) is the massive influx of refugees - migrants into this historic country. Greece, although a small country, receives twice as many refugees / migrants than Spain does and almost six times more refugees - migrants than the six times more populous Italy (according to the 2019 statistics)!

This ultimately means that, in proportion to our populations,
we receive in Greece ten times more refugees - immigrants than they receive in Spain and thirty-six times as much they receive in Italy! Not twice or thrice as much but thirty-six whole times as much! Does this sound reasonable to you? Does this sound reasonable to anybody?

Why do other European countries control, restrict or even bar refugees - migrants? Do these countries know something critical that the Greek citizens are not aware of? I agree that we have to show humanism and help those people who are truly persecuted and in danger. But the refugees - migrants are mainly coming to Greece from Turkey, which is NOT a war zone! So they are not in immediate danger. Rumors say that some people are inciting them to come over to Greece with some financial lure, benefits etc. It worries me also the fact that it does not seem to be any serious program of resettlement or repatriation of these refugees - migrants. They look as if they came to permanently stay in Greece - the poorest country in Western Europe, with the highest unemployment! Who benefits from this situation? Who are the true beneficiaries of this massive influx of refugees - migrants in Greece?


Greece has a population of little over ten million. The refugees - migrants in Greece are approaching
today one million people! If they keep surging - to the hundreds or even to the thousands every day - then in a not so distant future the refugees - migrants Greece will be more than the indigenous inhabitants! That would entail an unprecedented demographic alteration of Greece  (with the compliments of transiting Pluto, who has been for a few years now hovering over Greece's natal Sun and is thus "contaminating" its demography).

I wish we had in Greece a flourishing economy and plenty of job opportunities so that we Greeks creatively work side by side with a logical number of refugees - migrants. In reality, though the immigrants are already too many for a small, poor country that is going through a huge financial crisis - facing at the same time a high unemployment rate. More immigrants coming over to Greece under these conditions is a recipe for a humanitarian disaster! 

To conclude, the great "Capricorn Climax" of 2020 (which is in its own a rare and powerful astrological phenomenon) has had a fatal, decisive impact upon the National Horoscope of Greece. It has caused - and continues to cause - an unprecedented "plutonian" usurpation of colossal portions of national and individual wealth and a torrential plundering of this country (economically, demographically etc.)!
The Greek people have been grossly lied to, deceived and manipulated! Overall, what Greece used to be will never come back again. This ancient country has been to a large extent destroyed, but in a subtle, invisible "plutonian" way (that does not allow the elements of its destruction to be easily perceived)! It will retain many of its external features alright but deep in its core it will be radically transformed, it won't be anymore the Greece we used to know! 
 
Money is to a country what blood is to our body! Thus, a country whose resources are systematically plundered, whose "money - energy" (the hard work and the sweat of its citizens) is "usurped" and taken abroad, such a country is doomed to remain without vital energies and thus gradually become a "zombie country", a sort of "banana republic"! And under the current Capricorn Climax mega-phenomenon (Pluto - Saturn on Greece's Sun in particular) we are attesting Greece (an erstwhile glorious country and the cradle of western civilization) turning ever more into a broken, pillaged,
demographically altered, moribund country. We are longing now for its "plutonian" resurrection...
