Hard to say. This is a permacultural question. How does a significant shift in a single variable affect an entire system of which it is an integral part?
We can ask this question of any change, since all supposedly separate things are embedded within a larger order. And, we never really know for sure, because we don’t ever understand the entire system entirely. The context of any form is infinite in all directions. There are no closed systems in Nature. And though western civilization may be a mere temporary scrim on top of Nature, even so, it is embedded within Her, drawing sustenance from Her (raping her of her finite resources), and completely dependent upon her good graces (whatever they are), which in turn are embedded within the larger solar system context, and the even larger galactic context, etc. And then, of course, there’s the likely possibility of multidimensions. Both inner and outer. I.e., there is simply no end to the mystery.
Even so, of course we try try try to “make sense of” what’s happening so to predict the future. Here are two examples. The first from the Boston Globe.
The second, and arguably, more weighty opinion, comes recommended by zerohedge.
“Shock.” Great word for December 14, 2014, that’s today folks, the very day when the Uranus/Pluto square hits the exact degree point of its 6th of seven exact squares (2012-2015). The final one due in March 2015. However, between now and then, these two planets will remain within one degree of being exactly square, so make sure your seat belt is on. Or maybe take it off? In any case, we’re being hurtled, NOW, into the unknown future.
Let’s make this ride breathtakingly creative, shall we?
