ITALY - 2012
Most notable transit: Pluto in the 2nd house since December 2002, to remain therein through December 2019.
When Pluto enters the 2nd house of a country (or a person) it is a signal that a financial cleansing is about to begin, as major changes in both the financial picture and the value system will be underway during the transit. On the negative side,
severe financial loss. On the positive
side, it is a chance to leave the past behind and commence a new beginning, as
Pluto in Capricorn will force financial restructuring and in the 2nd house,
Pluto's initial entry into
Italy's 2nd house ushered in what
is known as the breakdown phase of the destroy/construct Pluto cycle, the first
portion being helped along with the opposition to natal 8th house Mercury. The debt that broke the bank. The construct portion of this particular
cycle may not be viable for Italy, as Pluto will oppose 8th house natal Venus
just prior to leaving this house of the nation's wealth...the possibility being
that Italy will become a satellite of a stronger nation, similar to what France
is experiencing...now in the process of becoming a satellite to Germany.
