Astrological Predictions for 2010
The world economy is currently undergoing a huge transformation and that change will continue into 2010 and beyond, eventually creating the way for something new and better. The fear and uncertainty that has been prevalent throughout 2009 will be gradually replaced by a determined call for action throughout the world during 2010. The economy, politics, ethics, the role of government, our banking systems and our use and understanding of money in general will begin to change dramatically.
It is an important year to plan and restructure in order to create a positive future for yourself and your family. It will take a conscious effort on the part of each individual to rise to the challenge and not be overcome by doubt and too much caution. On a national and international level, governments and their structures will start to crumble and they will have to accept huge changes if they are to stay in power.
2010 begins with not only Mars retrograde in Leo where it stays until March 10th but also Mercury retrograde in Capricorn until January 15th. Don’t expect travel, communications, technological and business interactions to go smoothly, especially during the Mercury retrograde. This is a great time to plan carefully for the upcoming year and to wait until at least January 16th to put your plans into action. Your momentum will start to gather when Mars goes direct on March 10th, so for the first three months of the year it is best to plot out your plan of action and the execution of your plan will most likely begin after March 11th.
You will need to work hard and plan ahead intelligently. With Saturn in Virgo for much of the first half of 2010, the focus will be on health and wellbeing and the protection of the Earth’s natural resources. There will be actions taken regarding carbon emissions and more environmental safeguards will be put in place.
Saturn and Uranus oppose one another on April 26th 2010 which could signify more upheaval and strife. There will be more public scandals with more people discovering they have been ripped off. Governments will have a very difficult time during May and June and confidence in our leaders will nosedive. Corporations and banks will resist regulation and reform while the public will become increasingly disillusioned with the government’s unwillingness to force through more reforms.
Jupiter makes a conjunction with Uranus on June 8th. At this point it is likely that governments will have to reform and change radically. Social unrest and riots are on the cards and people will become much more vocal in expressing their political and religious beliefs. We will see much more extremism coming to the fore. On the positive side, we are likely to see some enormous breakthroughs in the field of science, technology and medicine. Our investigations of space, other galaxies and aliens will be heightened and we will make discoveries that will be life-changing for humanity. This can be a very exciting and productive time too.
On July 11th there is a total solar eclipse in the Southern Hemisphere which will speed up the pace of change worldwide. At the end of July, there is a T-cross with Saturn in Libra, Uranus and Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Human rights and the law will come under the spotlight and in some countries civil liberties will be compromised. Natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding may occur during this period.
With Saturn in Libra, there is the potential for building bridges and forming productive partnerships based on mutual respect that will be for the good of all. On a local level this may involve communities coming together and helping one another. There may be more mergers of national and multinational companies resulting in more streamlined and productive ways of operating.
On August 7th, the Moon in Cancer forms a Cardinal cross with Jupiter, Venus and Pluto. This is an emotionally charged time when people may feel they need to protect their way of life. There could well be mass protests and riots. Even when the Moon moves out of Cancer, there is still a t-square between Jupiter, Venus and Pluto. This will result in governments and entrepreneurs trying hard to improve business relations and practices.
By September, many people will be heaving a great sigh of relief as balance will start to be restored to many nations. As long as the world leaders have been acting for the good of all, then we may see a more stable economy slowly starting to return. However, if there have been ulterior motives in our leaders, then we will see more stagnation and a much slower path to growth.
In many ways, it’s up to us. We need to start taking much more responsibility for our own lives and not rely on the nanny state to look after us so much. It’s time to reconnect with other people, to link up with our communities and to follow our passions and our dreams. Whilst 2010 will undoubtedly be a bumpy year, there will be opportunities for growth and prosperity for people who have a plan and who can think ahead and move forward with determination and confidence. Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.
