The Olive Countries – Part II.....door Myrthe Sardjoe
Spain is a slightly different situation. The start of Spain was different too. Here no revolution. Franco fell ill an died and that was the end of it. In the radix horoscope of Spain this Pluto-Saturn square has just passed. Saturn is even almost ready to make an incoming sextile with Pluto in this radix.
Transiting Pluto will square Spain’s radix Pluto for the first time in 2013. So there is still time and no rush.
Neptune today is conjunct the Ascendant of Spain. I associate this with the high unemployment rate in Spain. At the moment unemployment has risen there up to 20%.
What is really difficult in the horoscope of Spain today is the position of her radix Mars. Mars is at the first degree of Cancer. This is the same position as Portugal’s Saturn-Mars conjunction. And this Mars will receive throughout 2010 some very difficult aspects, especially during the end of the summer. Than Pluto-Saturn-Uranus/Jupiter will make a T-square, in the first degrees of Capricorn-Libra-Aries. The radix Mars of Portugal and Spain will complement this T-square and turn it into a big Square. A very violent combination! And Mars is the ruler of Spain’s second house: The house of income!
Still, compared to Greece and Portugal, I am quite positive about the Spanish situation for the next two years. However only time will tell. The horoscope of Spain with transits in outer wheel.
