The stress imposed by next year’s planetary configurations suggest that an important phase is approaching for the Eurozone. We can expect some kind of ‘reorientation’ to occur within the single-currency realm. This may involve deep financial processes and the underlying structure of the European economic system. As the next Jupiter – Saturn conjunction approaches, the EU feels the wind of change.
Astrologer André Barbault explained in detail the resonance between the Jupiter-Saturn cycle and the overall balance which governs the Eurozone. Almost a century of personal observation and research over planetary cycles made him a very respectable astrologer. His insight remains with us; it helps mundane astrologers all around the world to continue along the path of meaningful research.
As he envisaged years ago, the Eurozone will face a moment of reassessment at the next Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. The same revolutionary spirit ruled the markets around the turn of the new millennium. The last conjunction brought out a new, powerful currency that challenged the market. My observations lead me towards a total agreement with Barbault’s statements.
2021: EUROZONE UNDER STRESS
The Euro chart will be under a certain degree of planetary stress throughout 2021. Its rigorous, well-structured Venus-Saturn square will face the unsettling influence of transiting Pluto in Capricorn. Reaching 26 degrees of a Cardinal sign, the latter will heavily contribute to a Euro-shakeup. We may expect Europe being challenged to make reforms and readjustments throughout the next few years. This will eventually lead towards the establishment of a new relationship between the currency and the rest of the market. How this might affect the global market is uncertain; however, there is a high possibility that the various currency pairs involving the EUR will resettle to different levels.
CYCLICITY OF THE MARKET
In 2008, during the economic crisis, the EUR/USD spiked to 1.6. Extreme perturbation of the system was followed by a rapid downturn. That fall was preceded by a phase change in the declination cycle of Jupiter. Interestingly, another phase change occurred in 2013/2014, and a heavy EUR/USD downturn followed again. That fall resettled the pair at less than 1.15.
This year has been particularly challenging for the global market, and the outcome of such a prolonged impasse is still uncertain. Astrological observation can perhaps give us further insight. Recently there has been another phase change in the cycle of Jupiter, because it reached maximum southern declination around the beginning of 2020. With a prominent Jupiter/Saturn conjunction approaching, another important resettlement for the Eurozone is expectable. If the pattern will repeat itself, the EUR/USD may end up taking another significant downturn.
Other factors come into the same equation, such as the alignment of such conjunction with the Eurozone chart’s Neptune, which in 1999 occupied the early degrees of Aquarius. Also, 21 years have passed from the launch of the new currency, and Uranus now stands on a square to its original position. The interesting fact is that Saturn will join in the ongoing square next year, during the last quarter phase of the mundane Saturn-Uranus cycle. The Eurozone may be in for a remarkable reformation.
The entry of Pluto into Aquarius in 2023/2024 will represent the apex of transformation, and possibly stress, for the Eurozone. Those years may bring worldwide destabilization, as it happens with every slow planet’s sign ingress. The event will be preceded by an inflating Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces which will fall upon the Eurozone’s Jupiter. We may expect an abnormal pouring in of funds into the market before the actual entrance of Pluto into Aquarius, which is likely to rattle the markets at large.
All in all, considering the planetary stress imposed upon the Eurozone chart, temporary destabilization is more than likely for the currency. Considering the heavy effect of both the pandemic and the Brexit deal struggle over Europe at large, it may be quite interesting to see how the continent will weather the storm financially. Also, the outcome of this complex American election will definitely set the tone of the market for the years to come. Considering the challenges which await overseas finances as well, a steady outcome for the EUR/USD might not be easily foreseeable for the near future.
