THIS NEW YEAR: PERSPECTIVES AND OPPORTUNITIES

What surprises me the most in the chart of the New Year 2010 is the contrast between opposite tendencies; material and spiritual, emotional and objective, abstract and concrete forces seem to be at stake throughout this year.

The chart of this year is extremely important because a new decade starts, it offers a perspective not only for these twelve months, but for the next ten years that will surely contribute to define the profile of the XXI century. We submerge ourselves deeply into this new period of history as the decade of the teen’s (as some speaker of the BBC has named it) projects us onto the future. Let’s only think of how meaningful the teen’s were for the development and transformation of the XX century.

The cycle with multiples of 10’s provides also a key for understanding the chart; 10 times 10 equals 100, a century; see, for example, that the BBC demands that media presenters should say ‘twenty ten’ instead of ‘two thousand and ten’ (more in the American way), especially because the next Olympiad in London is announced as having place in the year ‘twenty twelve’ (2012). We start the decade with twenty times ten (20-10).

Ten (10) is a number of perfection as the tradition of Pythagoras and his disciples taught,



they called this number the TETRAKTYS, a symbol of perfection and unity that included all the digits, they also found the equation 1+2+3+4=10, containing the basic numbers to understand the whole astrological system.

We could go on playing with the combinations and possible meanings of 2010 but l just want to point out the contradiction between number 10 as an image of perfection, unity and integration against number 2, or 20, as a symbol of opposition, uncertainty, mirror, separation, conflict.

Assuming this year 2010 as the starting point of the adolescence of the century (the teens), the image of the mirror, associated to two and ten, two tens reflecting each other, this decade implies for mankind a quest of identity in this new period. Think of those children born with the century, they will go through their adolescence through this whole decade. We can consider them as embodiments of the year 2000. There was a World War during the teen’s of the XX century, let’s pray God that the XXI century shows more wisdom. I am convinced that mankind has the possibility, and the duty, to learn from its own history.

Within the chart of the year 2010, we can observe an emphasis on action and expansion; the cardinal signs, related to direction and multiplication of possibilities in different levels of reality, are very active; the angles of the chart as well as most planets are cardinal signs; the dynamic vectors of the astrological mandala are here very strong and vibrant. This suggests surprises, new approaches in dealing with life, rebellion against the old established rules; all this, of course, in different levels of reality such a politics, economics, the media, art, science and spirituality.

However, the duality, or contradiction we associated with number 2, is expressed in this chart in different ways; one is through the opposition of planets, such as Sun and Moon or Mars and Neptune.
The Moon in Cancer in the IX house (spiritual, knowledge, philosophy); emotions and idealism, spiritual development, opposed to pragmatism and even strict materialistic solutions (Sun in Capricorn in the III house).

From this year on, the second decade of the XXI century will be marked with new plans and systems of action to face practical challenges of the world (economics, natural resources) to help mankind to survive, but all this will bring about an intense struggle between Pragmatic Reason (Sun in Capricorn in the house of Mercury) against Collective Heart and Traditions.

The strong tendency towards adoration of celebrity (wanting to be famous and important just for the sake of it) we have observed in the last decade, will be redirected by a need to find a meaningful and substantial identity. This is shown in the opposition between Mars in Leo in the House of groups and organized societies, against Neptune conjunct Jupiter (spirituality and meaning) in the Fifth House, house of identity. As planets of healing (Neptune and Jupiter), this decade will intend to propose a new way to regenerate the soul and the body thanks to a deep understanding of our authentic identity.
