Greece is facing yet another existential crisis as the IMF warns that its debts are on an “explosive” path, despite years of attempted austerity and economic reforms. The IMF has called on the EU to provide “significant debt relief” to Greece, though Germany (and others) as per usual have ruled out any further relief before the current rescue programme expires in 2018. It could threaten the sustainability of the Eurozone with Italian politicians also openly talking of exiting the euro and returning to the lira.
The Bank of Greece chart, 7 Dec 1927, certainly looks in a panicky slide at the moment with Solar Arc Mars opposition Neptune; and tr Neptune square Saturn and Sun in Sagittarius through 2017 till late 2018.
The ECB (European Central Bank) start/EURO chart, 1 Jan 1999 12 am, is also in fair meltdown with tr Pluto square Mars, exact now and running till late 2018; with a jolting tr Uranus conjunct Saturn picking up from May; plus tr Uranus square the Mars/Saturn midpoint and the financial Venus this year as well – so all hell breaking out.
The EU chart, 31 Dec 1957 12 am, is still recovering from the Brexit shock of mid 2016 and the aftermath with the Solar Arc Moon opposition the Capricorn Sun and Solar Arc Uranus square the EU Sun a coupler of months later. It’s facing a ratchety, jolting, frustrated and enraged 2017 but its acute problems pick up in 2018 with tr Saturn hitting the chart axis as it moves into the 4th; with complete panics, devastation and rolling crises and confusion in 2019 and thereafter.
