European Horoscope 2009
you know, the European continent was named after the daughter of a
Phoenician ruler Europe
, kidnapped by the leader of Olympic gods Zeus in the form of a white
bull. Gods always were seducible with the young and beautiful. By the
way, the goal of this action of Zeus is still unclear – was it love or
simply a wish to seduce a pretty young woman? On the other hand, having
three children is a fact in favor of love but not just an occasional
sexual relationship. From the astrological point of view, not only the
myth showing that Europe can have some problems with a bull, which is a traditional symbol of
material values (“golden calf”) and Wall Street, is interesting. It
is also intriguing that Europe has its astronomic reflection on the sky. There is Europe among Jupiter (named after the god Jupiter – in Greek mythology, Zeus)
moons. For the first time, this moon was noticed in 1609 by the German
astronomer Simon Marius; however, the first official publication about
the observations of Europe was done by Galileo Galilei, who since this time has been considered to
be the discoverer of this heavenly body. However, justice triumphed! The
name “Europe” belongs to Marius, who suggested it in 1614.
Let us take a look, what interesting 2009, the Year of the Bull, can bring
to us? And what shall we, Europeans, do, if old myths revive and we turn
out to be between a rock and a hard place – between a resisting Europe
(they say, she is already a granny) and an excited Bull?
Let us start with the beginning. In 2009, one partial lunar eclipse is
expected, which will happen accurately on New Year’s night on December 31, 2009
. And one total solar eclipse is expected on July 21-22. This eclipse
may indicate on political and natural disasters in its coverage, all the
more so the dark fringe of the eclipse will cover India, China, affect
Japan and will sink somewhere on the islands in the Pacific Ocean. This
astronomical event frightens twice as it covers traditionally seismic
dangerous regions. From the European point of view, this eclipse advises
planning journeys in these regions cautiously in the second half of the
year, taking into account personal horoscope. Other eclipses –
penumbral for the Moon and annular for the Sun – are less important.
The circulation of Pluto around Capricorn is of the utmost interest. Namely,
it is the period of time in October-December 2009, when Saturn forms a
hard aspect of 90° to Pluto. Here there is something to remember.
Especially in 1939-1940, when this aspect accompanied the repartition of
borders in Europe, concerning Eastern Europe and the Baltics personally. The Baltic region is related by many right
with Capricorn, and in the Balkans, by the way, there is one more
traditional Capricorn – Bulgaria. Seems that these countries may come across hard trials, amid which
out-of-turn Government changes may seem to be merely childish plays. The
problem is that the bundle Saturn-Pluto is not even a therapy, but it is
a surgery, urgent interference in the fate of whole nations, when one
has not to persuade somebody, but drag to the exit using strength.
However, power method of problem solving concerns only the most
conservative and obstinate in their rightness politicians, as history
of the planets Saturn and Uranus, which first happened in the day of
elections of the U.S. president (4.11.2009), will periodically show up in the form of
appearance and efficient solutions to problems in finance end economics.
Economic implication of these planets is conditional on the peculiarity
of their position in the horoscope on entry of the Sun in Aries
(20.03.2009, New Astronomical Year). The first conclusion can be drawn
– till March 2010, as long as the aspect Saturn-Uranus remains valid,
the issue of financial crisis, debts to the banks, multinational debts
and credits will appear in the headlines of all top news. I associate
the appearance of the first signs of real recovery of the world economy
with the position of Jupiter in Pisces only in 2010.
Jupiter, as myths show, has a prime importance for Europe! This year it will be located in Aquarius and this is a good sign,
firstly, for all air signs – Aquarius, Gemini and Libra, secondly, for
fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Earth signs – Capricorn,
Taurus and Virgo – will display their business traits successfully.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) will have to correct their
plans, improving their attitude to themselves and other people, in
greater extent than other signs to be a success.
is a map of Europe, where I marked several lines of planets, calculated using the
author’s technique (not AstroCartoGraphy). It allows defining a
longitude on which one can discover “traces” of influence of
map-prognosis will be the most efficient from March 2009 to March 2010.
The line of Mars symbolizes military training, emissions of humanity
energy, accidents. This line covers Iceland; this year will definitely revive sleepy Icelanders. By the moment of
making up the prognosis, in Iceland a new government had already come to power. I think, however, that the
events will develop in the same direction, and Iceland can become an example for Europe
of designing its own strategy of overcoming the crisis. Except Iceland, the Azores, which are of volcanic origin, as it is known, will turn out to be in
strong Martian hands.
The line of Saturn is not so dreadful because its main influence will
cover 173-175° of eastern longitude (Alaska, New Zealand). In Europe only its repercussion will be felt, which will touch mainly Ireland and not so strongly Spain. Its influence is related to reduction and bringing order with the help
of cutting everything superfluous. This can be implemented with the help
of laws which, for example, will delimit the number of guest workers for
the sake of interests of own citizens. This line (as all lines in
astrology) can be tried to use in a positive way – developing
construction programs, nationalizing large companies and plants or
making significant state orders to enterprises.
The line of Uranus (2-4° W) comes near London, and this means that this country will amaze us this year. Unexpected
splashes of national identity and wishes to carry out profound reforms
of political or economic type are possible there. This line in a weaker
way will influence France and Spain. As Uranus is located in Pisces, the dangers of technical character may
concern airplanes and water craft passing through 2-4° WL on water
The line of Venus (16-18° E) will please the inhabitants of Sweden,
Norway, the central part of Poland and the
Czech Republic, western Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and southern Italy. This line is related to art, success in economics, peace and creation
of new unions, organizing different cultural events like beauty or song
