Out of Money
You can tell a lot about what is going with any situation such as the financial problems looming over Greece by looking at the current planetary aspects in the sky.
If any aspect indicates austerity and financial challenges, it is this one.
Venus, the planet related to fun, pleasure and money, is currently opposed by Saturn, the planet of losses, setbacks and hard lessons. Venus says, “I want to relax, have fun and enjoy life.” A discordant Saturn says, “I need to delay, block and create less of whatever is happening.”
And this aspect is in the money and debt signs Taurus and Scorpio. Both are fixed signs which indicates the problems are more set and long-term. They will not go away quickly and easily.
Greece may get a massive $96 billion bailout and financial support over three years. This will demand big changes and serious reforms. Greece faces a tough and harsh reality. It cannot kick the can down the road any farther .
You have probably read some of the thousands of blogs, television reports and news articles related this issue. Here are three news quotes relevant to Greece’s challenges and our current times.
- Debtor Greece a Model for Other Deadbeats by Victor Davis Hanson.
“Behind all the acrimony is an unspoken Greek assumption that has nothing to do with either economics or politics, but reflects a growing trend around the world.
The thinking goes something like this: The rich Northern Europeans have more money per capita than do the Greeks. They could write off the entire Greek debt and not really miss what they lost.
In the Greek redistributionist mindset, why should one group of affluent Europeans grow even wealthier off poorer Europeans?
Athens has adopted the equality-of-result mentality that believes factors other than hard work, thrift, honesty and competency make one nation poor and another rich.”
- Hans-Werner Sinn, a prominent German economist and president of the Ifo Institute for Economic Research in Munich has criticized the German government for bailing out Greece. He firmly rejected the latest agreement forged in Brussels.
“Many people believe that the paper presented is good for Greece. It is not. While it will cost the rest of Europe a lot of money, all this money won’t be enough to make the Greeks happy.
Greece is too expensive and uncompetitive. It makes no sense to want to pour in money to try to solve the country’s problems. That won’t create jobs.”
- And a letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal from Thomas Subler in Versailles, Ohio.
“Alas, government utopias always end at some point. Margaret Thatcher noted: The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.
The new choices, deservedly earned by Greece’s citizens, will be bad. President Obama is concerned, and he should be. The Greeks expose the folly of his belief in ever-expanding government, union dominance and the support of citizens who have become dependent on subsidies. America is on this slippery liberal slope.”
