A UK-exit will leave Germany carrying the lion’s share of the cost of propping up the ailing EU economies. They are much more tied into the EU than the UK was, given that it was largely set up to prevent another European war.
The relationship chart between Germany and the EU has a good-for-business Earth Grand Trine of Taurus Moon trine Capricorn Sun Mercury trine a Virgo North Node, formed into a Kite by Sun Mercury opposition a 10th house Pluto – so certainly an influential pairing and very controlling. No surprises Germany ended up top dog.
That relationship will be speared at soul level by the September Solar Arc conjunct the composite, heavily aspected, 12th house North Node. 2017 will be nervy and tense with tr Uranus square Neptune. But the real problems won’t show until 2018/19 when tr Uranus moving into Taurus will hit the Fixed T Square of Uranus opposition Venus square Mars which will seriously upset the applecart. Though may not lead to a De-exit.
The Germany country chart, with the same Libra Ascendant and axis as the UK chart is going through similar house transits – tr Pluto in the 4th = mutinous domestic population; tr Uranus in 7th = separations in close relationships; tr Saturn in 3rd – difficulties communicating with neighbours; tr Neptune in 6th – worries about employment and health costs. But with Pluto natally in the 8th trine Sun Venus in Capricorn, they are a much more reluctant changer than the UK.
What will shift them onto a different track will be tr Uranus square their 10th house Uranus from late April 2017; backed up by a shocked and angry populace, spurred on by Solar Arc Moon conjunct Mars. Right through 2017/18 tr Pluto will square their 7th house Neptune bringing confusion, uncertainty and serious questions about the commitment of a close relationship. That way be with the UK but it may also be with France.
The Franco-German bond was always the lynch pin of the EU and while it doesn’t look like splitting it will be under severe nervous strain through the next two or three years with tr Uranus square the composite Neptune and opposition Mars early 2017 into 2018.
