Mundane and politics astrology
'Natural disasters happen all the time. They are an expression of nature just like rain, hail and snow. But when the natural weather stirs itself to extremes and we are caught in a devastating wave of successive natural disasters, people die and it leaves us both reflective and compassionate. In the modern world, informed by the internet, these disasters seem to occur with vivid regularity. The recent 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the world and moved Japan's coast eight feet and shifted the Earth's axis by four inches!
The aspect will take place in July-August 2013 and then from December 2013 to May 2014. In August 2013 Mars conjoins Jupiter in Cancer forming an opposition to Pluto. The feature of Mars is to activate and to accelerate. This planet transits through Libra from 7.12.2013 to 25.7.2014 and turns retrograde from March to May 2014. The Jupiter-Pluto opposition is not exclusively correlated with financial matters.
On the outskirts of the European Union, Iceland was the first country to plunge into depression. Its financial crisis involved the collapse of all three of the country's major banks following their difficulties in refinancing their short-term debt. As a result, Iceland is currently undergoing a severe economic situation. Ireland followed entering into an economic recession in 2009. The Irish economy had expanded rapidly during the years up to 2007 due to low ECB interest rates among other causes.
'We now enter the final chapters of the cardinal crisis. Four of the five outer planets have transited the solstice and equinoctial points this past summer. It is now time for the lunar nodes to cross these same points. We now begin a period where the World Axis will be forced open, ejecting its inner contents and forcing all the world to become aware of the loss. This is because an eclipse is essentially a rip in the fabric of time.

'Normality is soon to be a thing of the past, and over the next half decade we will be witness to social, technological, political and personal transformations which will result in a world quite different to the one we know today. This could have been said in 1988 - just prior to the Saturn, Uranus and Neptune conjunctions opposite Jupiter, which precipitated the New World Order and fall of communism. It could also have been said of the mid sixties - just prior to the Uranus/Pluto conjunction opposite Saturn, which polarized youth and age and evoked a social revolution.
The eclipse degree of 19º24’ Cancer is of significance in a number of mundane maps. In my view, significance of the eclipse as indicative of major change or of important events in the political entity concerned, is to some extent a function of the role that this degree plays in the relevant map. If one of the luminaries is present at this degree, this would be more noteworthy than Pluto, all other things being equal. But it is one of the perennial frustrations of studying astrology that all other things are never equal.
The lunar eclipse on June 26 and the powerful cardinal cross configuration brings to light issues around power, corruption and the neglect of our most basic human values. We now have the opportunity to balance corporation with community and to bridge the gap between the material and the spiritual.
Potentially one of the greatest manmade environmental disasters, the BP oil spill, precipitated just as the outer planets Saturn and Neptune formed a quincunx to each other. There are other factors involved however: the opposition of Saturn to Uranus, Jupiter moving into conjunction with Uranus, and Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus being perpendicular to Pluto and the Nodes.
