North Pole Stress & Uranus/Pluto

North Pole New Moon Sunset
A “Midnight Sun” New Moon Sunset at the North Pole

My friend Janie just emailed me this beautiful North Pole picture of the sunset at the New Moon.

I’m not sure what the original source of the photo was. But whether or not it was actually taken at the North Pole, it’s definitely a gorgeous image.

It’s also a little ironic that this North Pole photo arrived this morning.

That’s because I’ve been reflecting on all the big world events that have been taking place. A lot has been going on the last couple of days.

That’s when we’ve been feeling the effects of the current Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

Disruptive Developments

And as we expected, most of those events have been disruptive in one way or another:

The hostage crisis in Sydney, Australia.

The shootings, in Philadelphia.

The Russian ruble going into virtual free-fall.

The massacre of 132 schoolchildren by the Taliban in Pakistan.

The abrupt shift in the decades-old conflict between Cuba and the United States, reestablishing diplomatic relations.

And the North Pole.

The North Pole?

Right.

Although the event hasn’t gotten much play in the news media, the North Pole is suddenly becoming very important.

And that’s not because it’s the reputed residence of Santa Claus. He will be focusing lots of attention on the North Pole next week.

In this case, it’s Denmark that’s in the spotlight.

As reported by the Associated Press and Quartz.com, Denmark has just completed a 12-year, $50-million research project. It to surveyed the 2,000-kilometer-long underwater mountain range that runs north of Siberia.

It’s conclusion? The underwater mountains are actually a part of Greenland. That’s an autonomous territory controlled by Denmark.

Bigger Than Denmark Itself

As a result, Denmark is now claiming sovereignty over 556,463 square miles of the North Pole. That’s an area about 20 times the size of Denmark itself.

This puts Denmark in direct competition and possible confrontation with both the U.S. and Russia. They both also claim the same territory as theirs.

What does it mean? We can learn a lot from Denmark’s official publication  on the “Kingdom of Denmark Strategy for the Arctic 2011-2020” – you can download the pdf version here.

Denmark’s claim of North Pole sovereignty comes into focus when we see the effect of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

And don’t forget the astrology involved.

The transits hitting the Denmark national horoscope at the time of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square are very powerful.

It’s a Neptune Return for the nation. It’s time for big ideas and new fantasies.

Jupiter conjoins the national Poseidon. That’s even more evidence of expanded thinking.

Chiron conjoins Demark’s national Kronos. So there may be issues about superiority and domination.

And most important of all, the transiting Uranus/Pluto square aligns with the Mars/Hades square in Denmark’s chart.

This could get serious!

 

The Planets Signal More Strife in Ukraine, Arctic Contests, A Possible EuroZone Collapse, and Even Some Big News for the U.S. Stock Market

My colleague Jim Cummins has just contributed a new article for our “Big Picture Perspectives” section in the members area of our website at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com.

It’s titled “Bookends of Time“, referring to the pivotal role that solar eclipses play in world events and economic trends. That’s a fitting subject, since the next big solar eclipse is just a few days away.

As usual, Jim is full of insights on global actions and personalities, using his vast knowledge of mundane astrology to bring out perspectives that you won’t find anywhere else.

In this piece, he tells us that “It is now a certainty that Vladimir Putin will send his forces into Ukraine before this month is out – most likely before the Solar Eclipse of April 29, fulfilling my forecast from March 19, which is cited later in this article.”

Jim has a lot to say about what’s coming up in the coming weeks, in the light of (or should we say the shadow of?) the Apirl 29 solar eclipse. And he goes beyond that as well, extending his forecast well into the next six months and beyond.

“The big issue going from the summer to the fall of this year,” he says, “will be the contests over who has what control in the Arctic regions, as the Fall eclipses highlight those regions…meanwhile, the next several weeks will be back-peddling for some, while Mars is still retrograde, through May 19, and continued brazen violence by others, such as the horrifically vicious Boko Haram in Nigeria, and the social eruptions through much of South America, and the continuing saga of Europe’s collapsing economies, paving the way for a forthcoming soaring American stock market.”
