ITALY - 2012

Most notable transit:  Pluto in the 2nd house since December 2002, to remain therein through December 2019.

When Pluto enters the 2nd house of a country (or a person) it is a signal that a financial cleansing is about to begin, as major changes in both the financial picture and the value system will be underway during the transit.  On the negative side, Italy suffers severe financial loss.  On the positive side, it is a chance to leave the past behind and commence a new beginning, as Pluto in Capricorn will force financial restructuring and in the 2nd house, financial management.

Pluto's initial entry into Italy's 2nd house ushered in what is known as the breakdown phase of the destroy/construct Pluto cycle, the first portion being helped along with the opposition to natal 8th house Mercury.  The debt that broke the bank.  The construct portion of this particular cycle may not be viable for Italy, as Pluto will oppose 8th house natal Venus just prior to leaving this house of the nation's wealth...the possibility being that Italy will become a satellite of a stronger nation, similar to what France is in the process of becoming a satellite to Germany.

Aquarius Rises, co-ruler Saturn retrograde in Libra in the 8th house of debt, co-ruler Uranus in Aries in the 2nd house of the nation's financial state.  The New Moon is in Taurus, sign of wealth, treasuries, banking, the 2nd house, on the 2nd degree.  This is a degree of impotence, a degree meaning any vital force that does not find a proper outlet will cease to flow.  The New Moon partakes of an Earth Grand Trine, with Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn.  Trines describe patterns of luck, right?  Easy come, easy go?  On the other hand - there is always an other hand - a subtle drawback with this pattern is a failure to develop and exercise the psychological muscles required to meet and effectively resolve major life crises head-on.  An Earth Grand Trine seeks to preserve the status quo of existing conditions, both element and aspect not responding well to drastic, critical changes in affairs.

Looking at the positive side of this pattern, there is an abundance of opportunities to attract, accumulate, and skillfully mange resources coupled with a remarkable endurance and persistence that encourages the ability to work long and hard towards valued accomplishment. 

As the New Moon is disposited by 4th house Venus in Gemini, as is Jupiter in Taurus, ruler of the 10th house (head of state) and taking into consideration past activities of the country's leader, it is more likely that playfulness (Venus in Gemini) will be the manner in which these energies are to be expended.

Neptune opposition Mars across the 1st/7th house axis will bring the Secret Service Sex Scandal front and center.  Strange encounters occur under the Mars opposition Neptune influence.  Here we have distortions in action and expression...a red flag for messy sexual entanglements, bar none.  The New Moon in opposition to retrograde Saturn, ruler of the 12th house (Secret Service) brings with it a very discouraging period for the country, as the retrograde Saturn describes abuse of these responsible people by those in power positions.

The Libra Lunation sits across the 3rd/9th house cusps, ruler Venus holding sway at 2 degrees Gemini, 10th house, the Apex of a Mutable T-Square involving retrograde Mars in 1st house Virgo in opposition to Neptune in Pisces, 7th house.  As both Neptune and Pisces rule the negroid race, contentious issues involving them are in the forefront of activity.  Their agenda is dual:  #1 is the desire to obtain resources that belong to others (Neptune in Pisces but not in the house occupied by Pisces - the 8th).  The reparation negroes feel is due them because their ancestors were brought to America in slavery approximately 400 years ago has already been paid to them - and continues through the years to be paid to them - in the form of welfare: food stamps, housing, healthcare...and by way of Affirmative Action...courtesy for the most part of the white citizens who work for their money.  Obviously, they prefer not to acknowledge this bounty and demand more and more and more, applying their talent for causing white people to feel guilt (a Neptune skill) and planning to use the Martin/Zimmerman incident to inflame their entitlement-minded brethren into a rage. 

The Martin lawyers, Jesse, Al, the Black Panthers...all have made a huge mistake in their timing because Mars is retrograde and their attempted instigation for a race war will turn and rend them.  Those who are ignorant of the Laws of Nature are bound to suffer the results.  Better for all had these self-appointed "leaders" lent their energies in bringing realization to those they have incited to realize that each person is responsible for their own actions, that they cannot forever keep blaming others for their failures..."poor me, poor me" (another Neptune negative) notwithstanding.  Had they done so, a white man who was bludgeoned with a hammer by two teen-aged negroids a few days ago would not now be lying in a hospital in a coma.  This crime of near fatality occurred within six miles of the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy, in the city which has been inflamed by race hatred by those people mentioned above.

Agenda #2:  gun control...can we also look forward to hammer control?

A Libra Lunation will often endeavor to force others to conform to plans or a set of rules.  There is a general tone of upset that can draw people into affairs that have no relevance to them.  Apex Venus expects things to come the easy way without effort or struggle.  People can become lazy, passive, and too complacent to initiate the critical changes in their lives that need to be undertaken.  Or in the case of those with the aforementioned dual-agenda, too lacking in moral character to recognize their own responsibility to those they purport to lead.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
