The two decades from 1980 till 2000 were years of unprecedented prosperity the likes of which we will not see again in our lifetime. Alas, this 20-year period of peace and prosperity ended in 1999. Then, the war in Kosovo, the stock market collapse in 2000, the tragedy of September 11, 2001 and recession in 2001-02 followed. What had changed?
In 1999, Neptune and Pluto entered in a septile aspect forming 51.4° angle (1/7 of the circle) between them. They will remain in or close to this septile aspect through the first half of 2016. Some of the most devastating wars in history took place under various Neptune/Pluto septiles. These wars include the Napoleonic Wars, WWI and WWII. Besides a worldwide rise in violence and political instability, Neptune/Pluto septiles also mark economic calamities. Indeed, the severe recession of 1937-38 took place under one of these septiles.
Uranus and Pluto entered their square (90°) in 2010 and will remain in or close to this square through January 2016. Both aspects, Uranus/Pluto square and Neptune/Pluto septile, are quite stressful, and their combination has already produced quite spectacular political upheavals, such as revolutions in the Middle East and a financial crisis in Europe.
In 2014-15, Saturn and Jupiter will form stressful aspects to Uranus/Pluto square. This will mark a dramatic rise in violence and political instability worldwide, especially in the Middle and Far East, Central Asia and Central Africa. Under similar combination of stressful aspects between Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus in the middle of 1965, the U.S. significantly increased its military involvement in the Vietnam War leading to a horrific loss of lives and the first major defeat of the U.S. military ever. The years of 2014-15 may also become as violent.
The crisis in Ukraine may diminish in intensity in the spring and summer of 2014. However, it will flare up again in the fall. Read more.
In addition to timing wars and revolution, the combination of Uranus/Pluto and Neptune/Pluto stressful aspects also coincide with economic contractions. One of such contractions has been taking place on and off worldwide since 2014. Southern and Eastern Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Iran and war-turn Syria were affected the most.
