The European Debt Crisis - Exploring the astrological link between Greece and the Euro

euro greece

Greece is on it’s knees again as an attempt to set up a far left coalition government in Greece failed and now an emergency administration is being put in place to give some direction to the ailing country. As I have indicated in previous posts Greece will be looking down the barrel of a gun for years to come and they still have to experience a very tough Pluto opposition to Saturn and the Ascendant in 2014. This post however takes a quick look at why Greece has been so intrinsically liked to the problems in with the Euro currency.

Have a look at the synastry chart between the Euro and the modern Greek chart of 1974. First thing to say is that back in 1999 when Greece was accepted to join the single currency, the rest of Europe knew that there was a problem regarding Greek debt and told them to sort out their book-keeping but they decided to generally ignore it. The Greek Sun is exactly conjunct the Euro’s Moon, there was a love affair between the creators of the Euro to get as many countries on board at the launch of the currency, and the Greeks I think charmed their way into the picture. Look at the Sun/Venus conjunction opposite to Jupiter on the inside wheel with the Greek Saturn and Mercury conjunction on the outside influencing this opposition. You can see the over optimism through Jupiter opposite Sun/Venus appeasing the Greek Government (Saturn) and believing that all would be ok with the figures (Mercury). The problem was that the Greeks hid so much of the real debt problems behind closed doors. The Greek Neptune, the planet that more than other hiding the truth is opposite the Euro’s natal Saturn – the administration of the Euro was going to be subjected to a test from a hidden Greek problem. On the Greek chart, below, you can see Neptune trine to the Greek Sun, this shows deception and idealism going to the heart of the leadership.

Now when the real extent of the size of Greek debt problems were exposed, what would be the ramifications and what will happen? Uranus on the national Greek chart signifies national debt, as Aquarius sits on the cusp of the 8th house. It is interesting that the Greek Uranus is trine the Euro Uranus, Greek debt coming to the fore caused instability (Uranus) in how the currency was being seen. The Euro chart is ruled by Mercury with Virgo on the Ascendant and the Euro’s Mercury is square to Greece’s Uranus too. Here is yet another  link between rebellion and revolt in Greece and the stability of the Euro. 

Greece has a Cancerian ascendant and the Moon it’s ruler is conjunct to Pluto the planet of death and rebirth. From 1974 it would have been obvious to any astrologer that Greece would be subject at some point in the future to a crisis that would reshape the country. That conjunction is square to the Euro’s Venus, very significant as Venus normally rules finance and money and very appropriately Venus rules the Euro’s 2nd house. This house is the house of self-confidence, any transitions in Greece would no doubt affect the standing of the Euro.

There is a very significant t-square on this synastry chart which may predict the future. Greek expansion and national optimism and overseas trade is represented by Jupiter. This Jupiter is linked to the Euro’s Mars by a conjunction, action by the European Central Bank that runs the Euro is the key to Greece progressing as a country. Greek’s destiny shown the North Node is conjunct the Euro’s Pluto square to this Jupiter/Mars conjunction. In essence, Greece can only progress when the European Central Bank acts (Mars) and the Euro itself goes through a transformation. The fact that Jupiter on the Greek chart conjuncts the Midheaven from the 9th house and trines the Greek ascendant as well as Saturn, Mercury and Venus shows that international factors will affect the national standing of the country, the government, national opinion and the national finances, pretty much confirming my assertions from the synastry chart. Astrologically, it looks very much like the breaking of the link between Greece and the Euro should be beneficial to both.

  1. Can't see Cancerinian ascendant to Pluto conjunct in Greece's chart

    1. I agree. The ruler of the Cancer Ascendant (the Moon) is though :)) Thank you for highlighting my little mistake. Now adjusted...

  2. Hi Paul, Thomas Gazis of Science-Astrology believes that Modern Greece's National Horoscope - Natal Chart is 13 January 1822, and believes that using the July 1974 date is akin to not using a date of birth "but when s/he gets married for the second time!". and I love your articles and wonder if this throws any new light on Greece's Euro-financial situation. Best wishes, Marc.

  3. Hi again Paul, And Marjorie Orr gives The National Bank of Greece as 30 March 1841 while The Bank of Greece is 15 Sept 1927 in her forum article Does this shed more light? Best regards. Marc.

  4. Really, I am impressed from this post. I found this informative and interesting blog so I think its very useful and knowledgeable. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this article.

  5. euro mars on greece s jupiter means fighting greece `s wealth and stealing it, waging wAR.Even before the creation of this hated by all europeans currency called euro,designed to enslave countries, greece was forced n o t to be antagonistic, by the implementation of european laws who obliged farmers to bury fruit,vegetables and olives,hellenic industry to remain non antagonistic, etc, and it continues with the antihuman debtocracy on all the planet. You`ll be surprised if you read some greek modern history. Greece`s collapse is designed and executed at least two centuries ago. The question remains why? well i guess, it is best for the mafia elite represented by the modern incarnation of atlantia, to have nato bases not only in greece and lsrael and cyprus but in turkey too.
