South America – held hostage by outside influence

South America was ravaged by Vatican-inspired foreign conquistadores from Spain and Portugal from the sixteenth century onwards, which decimated the local population with European diseases and forced labour. Having won a hard-fought independence in the early 19th century, many South American countries are now being held hostage by narco-gangs supplying Europe’s growing cocaine addiction.  Which is all the more ironic since most countries in South America have been keen on the political front to reduce foreign influence. Close one door and another opens.

  The recent assassination of a Ecuadorean presidential candidate, who has spoken out on corruption and alleged links between organised crime and politics, is symptomatic of the rising homicide levels. Fernando Villacencio, 11 October 1963, was a Sun Venus in Libra with a determined Mars Neptune in Scorpio square Saturn and sextile Uranus Pluto in Virgo. He had two yods in his chart – Saturn sextile Jupiter inconjunct Pluto and Pluto sextile Neptune inconjunct Jupiter.  Handled well they would give him influence and the ability to make a difference in society. Though there is a hint that over confidence could prove a problem.

  Most of the early 19th century charts for South America are a moveable feast since the various independence struggles journeyed through several stages.  Several have Pluto in Pisces which may point to transiting Neptune in Pisces since 2012 having a hand in the recent surge of the cocaine trade.

  Even if this holds good it’ll be a hard fought battle even after Neptune exits into Aries. The effect of cocaine was first seen by the Spanish invaders as the indigenous people chewed on coca leaves but it was not isolated until 1855 by a German scientist – when transiting Neptune was last in Pisces.

  1. A rather bizarre development in Argentine with the advance of far right, libertarian, Javier Milie (22 October 1970), an economist with strong views on the way the economy has been run for years, an admirer of D Trump, he is also know for other activities such as a trantic sex trainer and most baffling for thanking his 5 mastiffs what for is anybody’s guess.

  2. It is such a huge continent. Some countries do better than others. I was an exchange student to Venezuela as a teenager, and I have always tried to keep up. Brazil and Chile are doing well. Argentina- their GDP was ahead of France at the beginning of the 20th century, but they have a problem with corruption. Tragic about Ecuador.
