Financial Astrology: Japan’s Economic Recovery

There could be an interesting paradigm shift occurring in Japan that could set the stage for a new era of prosperity in a country that for the last 20 years has endured a rudderless economy. The planet Pluto is transiting the first house of the nations chart, and will make a trine to the nations Sun October 19th. The significance here is the first house represents the people of the nation and a “fresh start.” It could be that the government has intentionally derailed the economy for the last 20 years, racking up debt and eclipsing the GDP by over 230%.

The recovery could come this time from the people, as an economic force of their own ready to move out of the economic doldrums with new innovations, technology, and ideas that create prosperity. The Keynesian economic model that creates money from nothing, doesn’t seem to account for the power of the human spirit to create something out of nothing, that in turn is worth “real” money. America is most likely going to fall in line with Japan as the trend shift may have already started to take hold in America on August 2, 2012, just weeks before Pluto changed direction on September 17th. Perhaps this is why Bernanke quickly announced QE3 in order to take credit for the recovery since his last round of QE seemed pointless.

It will be interesting to watch what happens in the next few weeks with the yen. Based on the astrology charts, we could see the yen rising significantly to the dollar near October 20th. There are also transits that suggest inflation at the same time, so we could also see a rally with gold and silver also near October 29th.

Perhaps 2012 is ushering in a shift of power from the central banks back to the people, as the economies of America and Japan are ready to move on with or without the banks.
