The Astrology Of The Global Financial Fuqery

The Global Financial Astrology Matrix

Voila, my opinionated look at financial crisis astrology. It’s not – obviously – investment advice. Uranus and Pluto eras are fantastic ways to view the economy and politics. Their periodic aspects to Saturn make the energy more accessible. Or, less pleasantly, felt in everyday-ville. 2020’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction is the first since late 1982, an economic annus horribulus in many realms. Happily, the zeitgeist toward less consumption, slow fashion, sustainability, and less debt-reliance is environmentally friendly and strategic prep for 2020.

It is disconcerting to be on the verge of Uranus in Taurus with so much geopolitical and economic hyperflux. But there are potentially fantastic outcomes from the new era incoming.  It is easy to see the late Eighties and Nineties trend of increased faith in so-called economic rationalism reflected in Uranus in Capricorn. Uranus = revolutionary and the sign of Capricorn broadly signifies the business system. It did seem like a revolt against fusty old government departments at the time. Governance was out of style.

Debt Aversion Of The Pluto In Cancer Generation Became A Relic

All over the Western world, governments privatized publicly owned assets. Labor became more “mobile” – that is, many locals were now competing with imported workers able to work at lower costs. Debt grew easier to access. I think it was Bernie Sanders who pointed out that the more freely available debt was a way to conceal earnings decline. Leveraging options previously only available to business people with an appetite for risk became de riguer for everyday people. The debt aversion of the Pluto in Cancer generations (pre-baby boomers) was a relic.

The Uranus in Capricorn era did not birth what we now called Neo-Liberalism, but it was when it became government policy.

The late 90s and early 2000s saw Uranus in Aquarius + Pluto in Sagittarius spring game-changing inventions such as Netflix and the Smartphone, with all the associated technologies. It was also the ascent of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and ultra-cheap air travel. The latter was ironic as climate change awareness was also becoming more mainstream. Property bubbles and a debt load that is now increasingly seen as toxic began to form.

Uranus In Pisces Bought Us A Zillion Micro-Demographics

Culturally, you could see Uranus in Pisces from 2003 in the growing presence of lives lived online and digital identities that were sometimes entirely separate from the everyday one. Think also app culture and the splintering of once broad demographics into a zillion micro-demographics. Official arbiters dissolved into everyone being a content creator and critic. User Reviews and “People who bought this also bought…” became a more critical metric.

In 2006 the Law of Attraction ur-text The Secret – was published. It was arguably a spawn of Pluto in Sagittarius and Uranus in Pisces “positive thinking” on meth. It felt like everything got leveraged. Everyone was a multi-level marketer. Investment risk was the new “no-brainer.”

On the macro side, the use of offshore tax havens by big companies had dramatically risen, and millions of jobs transferred to emerging economies. It was part of the plan, the rising tide that lifts all boats, a new system working as it should. Many industries and professions boomed – from mining to financial planners and Pilates instructors. If your house is out-earning, you and the law lets you leverage off its perceived value to borrow more, than anyone can aspire to the ‘designer’ life. But bubbles burst and booms end.

Pluto Into Capricorn Until 2024 Is Peak Financial Crisis Astrology

Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008. So-called economic rationalism was not so rational after all. Oops, they broke the financial system. The Lehman Bros collapse was the opening stanza of Pluto in Capricorn. The credit crunch swiftly followed. Bitcoin + other crypto-currencies appeared in January 2009, at the end of Uranus in Pisces. Fun times. Interest rates went to ’emergency lows’ and stayed there, decimating savings but inspiring – you guessed it – more debt. Quantitative Easing – primarily the creation of more money for the banks to lend out – was introduced.

Aside from in Iceland and the case of the Ponzi merchant Bernie Madoff, it did not seem like anyone got punished for the Global Financial Crisis. The taxpayers footed the bill. Little was done to prevent the sort of build-up of enmeshed loans and dependencies that led to the GFC in the first place. The story was left open for the prequel; GFC 2 or Global Financial Fuqery.

Then, with Uranus in Aries, came the “disruptive” businesses – Uber, Airtasker, Air BnB and a host of others. Did these sorts of companies empower people to become self-employed or did they glorify low-employment? Was it Air BnB an innovation, or did it just take the rental stock off the market and undermine communities? A core theme of Uranus square Pluto from 2012 to 2015, unearthed in global financial astrology, was these sorts of start-ups butting up against established business models.

The Yellow Vest Movement Is Uranus In Taurus

A new breed of tech Titans replaced the old. In many parts of the world, property shot up to absurd, irrational prices. Globalism on steroids saw countries lose most of their manufacturing base, becoming more reliant on imports or selling off assets like land. In some cases, they ran down their fuel or food reserves. Now, with Uranus about to be in Taurus, we have the classically Taurean themes of populism (the Yellow Vests movement in France, for example), anti-globalist groups on the left and right, as well as climate change concern peaking among even the most skeptical people.

The worst case scenario is that whacko dictators seize control of the narrative and we all get re-feudalized, only it’s digital a la an episode of Black Mirror. But the best case, which I think is more likely, is that Uranus in Taurus sees a groundswell of environmental awareness among consumers + voters. And that Uranus in Taurus common sense demands a more equitable society. Without our approval, they cannot keep getting away with this crap. And that this inspires perfectly profitable new business models, according to the global financial astrology.

Pluto In Aquarius Is Robots

In classical astrology, Taurus IS agriculture, the Earth Deities, and our land. Uranus is ingenuity and revolution: we can turn this around. It could feature more sustainable money practices and reasonable valuations. I am going big on the Vegan, minimalist, non-flying, herb-growing, debt-averse, natural medicinal aspect of things.

It would also be wise to hedge against Global Financial Fuqery in late 2019 and 2020, with Saturn + Pluto meeting for the first time since 1982. But remember that Uranus in Taurus is in harmony with Saturn + Pluto in Capricorn.  Saturn and Pluto conjunct is the epicenter of financial crisis astrology. You could argue that the neo-liberal world order began in the early 1980s. This is an excellent read on that and a good indicator that establishment people are getting woke to it.

Aside from the optimistic view of Uranus in Taurus being politicians doing their job and looking after the people who elected them + not destroying eco-systems so that they can personally profit, I am positive about Pluto in Aquarius! It’s not until 2024, but I can see it as – yes – robots. But also as people being free to live without religious repression. They would freely choose their spiritual beliefs, regardless of the culture of their birth.

So, thoughts on global financial astrology?

thank you, Mystic, for the link to Project Syndicate and your articles on global financial crisis!
I already knew many of these things, but every time I read them in print, it means more people are realizing what is happening (and I didn’t know abt the article on the trillion-dollar derivatives market – doesn’t surprise me! – and hadn’t heard expression “unicorn companies”. I already read bloggers who have been preparing for Uranus in Taurus for some time, but it helps to have other sources. Love your images also!

I’m actually a programmer and rather than pluto in aqua as robots… I see it as the end of and/or reigning in of technology’s misuses. 2024 seems like it would be around the soonest we could get realistic anti-monopoly reforms, and while the reforms are likely to start with antitrust like forcing amazon to spit off from aws, there will be knock-on effects to all of the ‘unicorns’ like uber and airbnb if the 2020 intensity doesn’t take them out sooner. which will have effects on the housing market, probably globally at this point, as quite a lot of it… Read more »

The financial sitch is worrying and I suppose that’s only one expression or the expression of someone who has backed the wrong horse or over extended. I fit neither. My debt is so low it’s negligible. It wasn’t the way I was walking some years back but it’s where I’ve arrived and for the times I think myself fortunate but fortune came cloaked as pain and forced growth as it often does.

“I think we all need to think carefully about what that really means. Again it’s goes beyond convenience for an individual”. So, so, so, many things this applies to.

Thanks for getting it in the context I meant it zenduende. I think about this stuff a bit too and it can feel pretty serious and definitely applies to lots of things right now. It can’t all be bad as everything is polarity but there are definitely things we’re (collectively) not addressing as well as we could be with all the knowledge and tech we have these days. Greed is probably still in charge but it’s wearing an eco-friendly tee… hmmmm. I don’t want to be cynical… I’m a natural optimist but also a natural realist. Some things have had… Read more »

“The ripple effect is significant when you prop something up that should have been allowed to deflate. That was the last financial crisis in 2008(ish) the natural decline of things was averted through various methods so it didn’t bottom out to it’s full extend”. Colour me cynical but, hell yes! There’s going to be repurcusions and the consequences (and stakes) are very serious but, yes, some will even be positive. You’ve nailed it again, Centaurus (as per MM).

Hmm, I’d consider Pluto in pisces as the de-leveraging of spirituality from culture. De-materialising even. Def following the revolutionising of labour a la Uranus in Taurus. Pluto into aqua as you say mm,, the bots would arrive on the back of that revolution, with the last couple of years of Uranus in Toro. Whereupon Uranus in Gemini really gets the artificial (Uranus) intelligence (Gemini) up and running !

Well I for one think there will be a big shakedown economically/financially with Uranus in Taurus. The lighting bolt hitting the tower, I think the last time Uranus was in Taurus we had the Great Depression and World War II, 1934-1942. Hopefully none of THAT happens this time around but you have to be ready. I am in the process of selling my house and eliminating ALL of my debt.

That last bit about Pluto in Aquarius promoting people living without religious repression really spoke to me! However, I see it more as people opening their eyes and embracing their spiritual communities, whatever they are – whether that’s the sweet hometown church you grew up in or a crew of people who are more spiritual healers and refuge than just acquaintances. I, for one, was raised Catholic (went to a ladies’ only nunnery school!) and definitely had moments of doubts, questioning and curiosity where I dabbled and deviated.

This is freakish topic. Too much to respond to on a mobile.
But two points. One specific, one general.

Specific: Uran in Aries spawned the gig-economy which seems like (slimy) entrepreneurs (viagogo, trivago) just siphon other ppl’s hard earned income. Is this not a shitty thing to do. Is it a neg-Aries selfish thing to do.

General: Uran in Taurus starts out with a revolution in integrity and a concern for living things but could degenerate into killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.

isn’t it odd. Those feelings that we have in that brief childhood window which I think arrives around 3 or 4 years and comes to an abrupt end around 7 or 8 years are the ones that speak most to our truth and the reality you inhabit. Then we get drawn into behavioural models and have to deal with society around us, that being teachers and other children. We try to fit in because we are told we have to and that is the objective. Cleaved is a very good term. Welcome home WUAS.

What a summary! I read the economist religiously & MM, this piece needs be in the next edition!

I’m personally looking forward to politicians actually doing their jobs as part of our social contract and not personally benefiting from destroying our environment. Also the property market falling, especially with short term investors bailing & then the release of the findings by the Royal Commission into the banks, it will be interesting to see how it all goes.

Once Amazon and other major shipping companies adopt this technology (part of the Pluto in Aquarius robots), everyone else will jump on it too.
