Data:  December 22, 2011 @ 0:31 A.M. EST - Washington, D.C.

The figure for the Vernal Equinox always bears chief rule for the ensuing year and while the succeeding ingresses into the other cardinal points have also a pre-signification, they are subsidiary to the first-named.  For clarification, see "Spring (Vernal) Equinox 2011," posted on March 8, 2011.

Sun trine retrograde Jupiter:  An opportune time for the U.S. to consider a spiritual realignment with regard to foreign nations and open enemies.

Sun square Uranus:  Get ready for upsets and surprises having to do with military personnel and civil servants.  Forced changes to plans that were not well thought out (typical inefficient government modus operandi).

Sun opposition Midheaven:  The party out of power challenges authority of the party holding power.  I'd say may the best party win except both parties are obsolete and no longer represent the people.  With any luck, both parties will kill each other off, thus allowing Americans to pick up the pieces and move forward.

Sun conjunct Pluto:  The focus is on power and how those who do not have it seek questionable methods to obtain it, resorting to the unethical, if that is what they deem necessary to achieve their ends.

The 2nd house Moon in Scorpio square 5th house Neptune in Aquarius describes the financial fantasy that is deluding the citizens into putting their cash into the stock market casino.  Going back to Sun conjoined Pluto:  gold is power.

We are no other than a moving row
Of Magic Shadow-shapes that come and go
Round with the Sun-illumined Lantern held
In Midnight by the Master of the Show.

PLUTO SQUARE URANUS...Uranus is the Awakener, the planet of freedom trying to shatter - in order to liberate - all the conditioning patterns in our lives, all those familiar (secure) structural definitions of inner and outer reality.  To move into our future we must be free from our past...the key is to realize and acknowledge the conditioning patterns that have shaped and defined our reality, to liberate ourselves from that which has been suppressed.

Pluto is the Transformer, the planet of initiation that moves us from past, present, into future, the planetary symbol of an evolutionary process...the prime mover.  To accomplish its goals of evolution, Pluto produces emotional shocks for the purpose of removing from our lives some life situation or behavioral making us aware of some external or internal source of limitation blocking further growth...and by creating situations in which we become aware of new capabilities that have heretofore been dormant.

Pluto square Uranus promotes changes to cause the elimination of all emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual attachments that prevent or block growth.  The evolutionary intent of this aspect is to eliminate all conditioning attachments that bind the individual to the past so that the soul may be free.

Pluto in Capricorn will form an exact square to Uranus in Aries in June 2012, September 2012, May 2013, November 2013, April 2014, December 2014 and March 2015.  The orb of influence is five degrees, which commences on March 24, 2012.

June 24, 2012 @ 8:15 GMT - exact is to be noted that Pluto is retrograde, therefore, will accelerate the evolutionary process.

ISRAEL: The square occurs in Israel's cadent houses - Pluto retrograde in 3rd and Uranus in 6th house.  The outgoing, initiating energy of the angular houses is as a concentrated force held in the succedent houses, that circulate and move toward a new expression in the next angular house as conditions change in the cadent houses.  So for Israel the evolutionary intent is for the citizens to make the required changes and eliminate the conditioning energy involved with their neighbors by confronting the limitations of intellectual structures, to examine the nature of personal opinions and the basis for same (Pluto transiting the 3rd house) coupled with a need to cleanse, purify, and heal their Soul (Uranus transiting the 6th house) that is blocking their spirituality and soul growth.

GERMANY: The square for Germany occurs in cadent houses - Pluto retrograde in 6th and Uranus in 9th house, making the evolutionary intent for German citizens to eliminate conditioning energy connected to activity divorced from supporting the self and self-expression) by inducing a period of time for personal improvement via deep inner self-analysis, i.e., self-criticism, in order to facilitate the cleansing, purifying and healing of the Soul (Pluto transiting the 6th house - known in ancient times as the house of slavery) while clearing the detritus of religious dogma (Uranus in 9th) that limits their soul growth.

RUSSIA: For Russia the square is angular...retrograde Pluto in the 4th house and Uranus in the 7th house, giving an evolutionary intent to promote a metamorphosis of the inner emotional structure by eliminating and changing all old emotional patterns and minimizing external dependencies so that a new chapter can begin for the country, all of which will be tied to a 7th house Uranian need to become liberated by learning to accept the inherent differences that exist between all peoples.

FRANCE 5TH REPUBLIC and AUSTRALIA: The square for both France and Australia occurs in Cadent houses...transiting retrograde Pluto in the 9th house and Uranus in the 12th house.  The evolutionary intent is a process that promotes a cycle of intensified growth that demands confrontation of the limitations of existing philosophical principles and convictions.  Liberation occurs for the people of these countries by examining the causes or bases of the fear of losing control and of the fear of being overwhelmed by undefined forces.

CHINA: Retrograde Pluto is transiting the 12th house - a cadent house - in China's horoscope, squaring Uranus in the 2nd - a succedent house.  The evolutionary archetype is the need of the people to acknowledge and deal with reality in order to promote a conscious awareness of their natural spiritual identity.  A purging and elimination may be necessary to free the people to move forward.  This will be tied to the instinct to survive (Uranus in 2nd), which necessitates becoming aware of available resources and what is needed to survive.  Liberation occurs by breaking free of the current value system or resource use, which means to establish values, to change what is valued, to use and establish resources in new ways that allow for individual and species survival.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: The square for America occurs in angular houses...retrograde Pluto in the 1st house and Uranus in the 4th house, giving the evolutionary theme of initiating new actions that reflect that a new cycle in evolutionary development is beginning.  This may require a break from the past, or it may require breaking with certain dimensions that are linked with an old response, approach or attitude from the past.  Liberation occurs as the people rebel against the conditioning energy of their society, as they break up the crystalized structures foisted upon them.  Liberation occurs with stabilization, the whole point of Uranus being to recover one's essential nature.

Transiting Pluto, planet of things nuclear, is and has been expressing through Japan's 8th house of death, purging and purifying.  Pluto is now less than 3* from its square of 11th house Venus in Aries, its detriment, where it is hindered from its natural expression.

The 11th house is one of circumstantial developments, due to the trend of affairs, not according to plan and expectation.  It rules large-scale events, universal in scope, unconventional and departing from the norm.  It is the end-of-the-matter-4th house after the 8th house of death.  It is now being activated by the transit of Pluto in the square relationship with Venus. 

Reports of Fukushima reactor #4 Fuel Pool state collapse is imminent, that it already has a collapsed wall and that earthquake movement of any significance will collapse the spent Fuel Pool, rendering east central Japan uninhabitable.

Whether these reports are accurate we nevertheless must take into consideration the planetary aspects.  On February 26, 2012, transiting Pluto will make the exact square to Venus, while transiting Neptune will conjoin the chart ruler, retrograde Mercury, and square its own 12th house transiting Uranus forms a sextile to natal 12th house Pluto, the latter two planets being at odds with one another with a natal sesqui-square aspect, the action of which is to break up existing conditions rather suddenly.

Whatever happens early in the new year will be followed in springtime by the Pluto/Uranus square as it comes into a five degree orb of influence at the end of March 2012.  Pluto in the 8th house instills an evolutionary process that promotes a necessary death of all old and outmoded patterns of behavior; it releases and purges cumulative negative karma. It brings a country low by destruction so that it can either achieve regeneration or wipe the slate clean.

The eastern portion of the horoscope runs from the 10th to the 3rd houses.  Note that Venus is placed in the eastern section of the chart.

DATA:  December 10, 2011 @ 9:37 a.m. - Washington, D.C.

An eclipse in the element air (Moon in Gemini) indicates focus on trade, the marketplace, transport, and all forms of communication because the energy of Gemini is that of movement, versatility and variability.  The Moon itself rules markets...the 5th house governs the ruin of credit (8th house of debt from the 10th of credit).

As an aside, this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse takes place on the same day that Uranus goes into direct the 2nd house of we should in the not too distant future be observing  further destruction of the country's wealth.

Saturn, Neptune and Uranus, as co-rulers of the 1st house, govern the general state of the nation and the people in particular in this chart.  Saturn opposing Jupiter expresses a conflicting business environment.  Neptune trine Saturn and sextile Jupiter induces a smokescreen overall, a sort of cartoon surrealism but on occasion receiving surprising flashes of insight that has the possibility that people may develop an ever-clearer reality-conception.  The 29th degree of Aquarius is an heroic degree, yet at the worst case can induce a destiny with frightful ordeals.  We are being challenged to not only walk a fine line, but to maintain our integrity as we do so.  Uranus trine retrograde Mercury in the 10th house speaks to the need of government to consider new ideas that would cause them to approach old problems from a new perspective...or the energies could be misused by the country's leader for purposes of travel to distant places (Mercury in Sagittarius), extravagance in the face of dire events occurring at home base being one of his greatest talents...fiddling while the country a civilization going, going, Gone With The Wind.  The latest travel plans of the president as issued by the White House indicate the playboy-in-chief will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii on December 17, 2011 and not return to the nation's capitol until January 2, 2012...and so we can count on the planetary energies being frittered away rather than being put to good use.

In the USA horoscope, the influence of this Full Moon Eclipse:  the country's natal Mars is activated as the eclipse comes within 3* 13' of a conjunction in the 7th house of War, Mars itself being the planet of war, as signified by its aggressive urges.  We, therefore, may expect some sort of conflict that can include domestic terrorists - as defined by our corrupt government as those of us who store food for more than 7 days or who own a gun - as Mars rules Aries on the USA 4th house cusp...hearth and home.

On the road of life one mile-stone more!
In the book of life one leaf turned o'er!
Like a red seal is the setting sun
On the good and the evil men have done,--
Naught can to-day restore!
