Uranus in Aries & the electrical car

We've seen torrential rains since Uranus entered Pisces in 2003 (like in "electrical rains") but also the absolute hit of imagery (digital photo's) and films (all Pisces) on the internet (Uranus).  By the same token, the likely hit of Uranus in Aries (starting 2010) will be the electrical car, or cars (Aries) with electrical (Uranus) motors (Aries) this time, born out of necessity..... why?

Let's have a look at what happened economically this year so far: 

Quite frankly, as an astrologer, the situation has perplexed me already since the first crash on the markets in december '07.  For, it was, and is, clear as glass, that something drastic would happen and will happen when Pluto enters Capricorn.  The previous time Pluto was in Capricorn (over 246 years ago), there was a financial crisis of debts: people started to reclaim their money and the debt-economy collapsed. Add to that the fact that the USA was "born" with Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house (signifying economic power) and will see a return of Pluto to its natal position (but not until 2022), together with the knowledge that in fact the country is broke, one would expect a similar scenario with the upcoming Pluto in Capricorn timeframe. However, something really weird happened. Pluto wasn't even in Capricorn when the first crisis broke out end of last year, and similarly, currently,  Pluto isn't in Capricorn either. In both instances Pluto was and is transitting the final degrees of Sagittarius! And strangely enough, when Pluto did in fact enter Capricorn (at the end of January), some peace and quiet on the markets returned. 

The current financial crisis co-incides with the passage of Venus in Scorpio (which is always a yearly downfall on the markets, yet usually not so sensational as the current one). And in contrast to what happened over 246 years ago, currently the governments all over are trying to calm the market down. It is even likely that they will succeed! (For now). Jupiter is in Capricorn: the healing comes from Jupiter, and Capricorn suggest the government anyway.  So I'm waiting to see whether the markets calm down again when in fact Pluto will enter Capricorn for definite at the end of November, as it did from the end of January when it entered Capricorn for the first time.

Did we learn from the past and will Pluto in Capricorn not be the expected crisis because we are already having it currently? Or is this a foreshadowing of things to come? For the planets are not exactly going to be "friendly" to us from november onwards up to and including 2010. 

What was very much true to Pluto in Capricorn was the fact that when it did already get into that sign earlier this year, the oilprices soared to extreme heights, and not only oilprices but other raw materials as well. And they calmed down again when Pluto re-entered the sign of worldwide travel: Sagittarius. However, when Pluto will get back into Capricorn at the end of November, it is natural to expect another rise in oilprices, in fact, shortage of raw materials may very well be what's going to happen. Plus the world will stop travelling so much as it has done in the Pluto in Sagittarius timeframe. It simply becomes too expensive. Is one reason. But Capricorn is no longer the sign for travel as Sagittarius was... It will be in the East (Asia) that the economy gets stronger, and in the west that it gets weaker. (For other astrological reasons that I may discuss some other time). And they need all the raw materials they can get. 

It won't be long before Uranus will enter Aries (2010). Aries is motorcars, but also a new beginning. Uranus is electricity. With the changes occurring as they are, it is only logical that the future will bring us the electrical motor, or the usage of other ways of solar technology (already in the preparation phases currently with Uranus still in Pisces, the sign where things are not yet visible). So with all the havoc going on, something good may come of it: finally we will see from 2010 onwards the car running electrically or even on water. There are already a few around, but it will soar from then onwards. The technology for that has been available for ages. But there was no immediate urgency or necessity to implement it. Necessity may bring it about in the years ahead!
