DATA: February 21, 2012 @ 10:30 P.M. GMT -
The New Moon in intercepted (energy locked up) in Pisces conjoined Neptune falls into the 12th house of
's horoscope. Pisces and the 12th house symbolize a form of bondage. That which is being bound are the heart and soul of the nation (Sun and Moon) due to chaotic conditions ( France Neptune).
Pisces and Virgo are the intercepted signs, the theme of which are chaos and order, the axis describing the manner in which daily necessities of life are undertaken. An imbalance is seen with four planets in the 6th house. As astrologer Clare Martin notes: "If this spectrum polarises on the Virgo side, then there will be a strong need for control over the daily routines of life, in an effort to keep chaos at bay. And yet, if the qualities of Pisces are not integrated, they will emerge from the unconscious and the Virgo individual will feel increasingly overwhelmed, and will tend to attract more and more disruption into their lives and feel more and more out of control."
And that is exactly what is happening to the country.
has neglected to attain balance of this 12th/6th house axis to ensure wholeness and are about to suffer a curtailment of liberty (12th house). France
The planet immediately prior to the New Moon is
Neptune in Pisces in the 12th house and so the current problems hark back to a desire to escape responsibility to themselves to the degree that they have sabotaged themselves. The planet immediately following the New Moon is Mercury in Pisces in the 12th house; the future brings the possibility of corrections to be made, probably by young people. I don't see this as a positive considering the transit of Mercury's opposition to a retrograde Mars...the young may very well be social misfits bent on aggression.
Cancer (Moon) and Capricorn (Saturn) each hold two house cusps - 4th and 5th, 10th and 11th - thus we are looking at Moon/Saturn issues revolving around security, domestic matters, the birth-rate (4th)...taking chances and speculating (5th) as opposed to private and commercial enterprise (10th) and circumstantial developments due to the trend of affairs (11th). The issues have led to a disruptive effect on
's relationships with other countries that will now bear unwanted fruit with a 12th house New Moon in Pisces. France
Transiting Uranus, also traveling through the 12th house, opposes natal Venus (currency), ruler of the 2nd house of wealth and the 7th house of foreign affairs. Uranus triggers the Mars/Pluto square...as Mars is posited in the 2nd house the breakdown of wealth appears on the horizon for
France and will surely affect their allies, including banks in the United States, due to debt problems and indirect exposure to Europe's sovereign debt via credit default swaps. There is no doubt in my mind that the rumbles will reach across the ocean, sooner rather than later. If you haven't already done so, the time has arrived to immediately devise a strategy to safeguard your assets.
