Warren Buffett once said, "only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked." That is very much the case now, after the Federal Reserve's June 19 announcement that it might start scaling back its program of buying up assets from financial institutions--to the tune of $85 billion a month--later this year. The news prompted a roller-coaster ride in the markets. Stocks plummeted, commodities crashed, bond yields jumped and credit tightened as investors began to realize that the low interest rates from this easy-money party could finally come to an end.
Amongst the several methods used in mundane astrology the Capricorn Ingress [Capingress] or Winter Solstice chart is held as the most important for the entire year. We will see how the Capingress for
clear message about the need for a change in the handling of economic affairs. Two
planet configurations that interpenetrate each other stand out in the solstice
chart. The first is a Yod of Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto. The second is a T-square
with Sun-Pluto-Kronos-Hades-Uranus-Makemake with the two joined together at the
Pluto end. Washington
Nick Fiorenza discusses the details in his Lunar Planner for December 2012  from which I will quote a few excerpts.
As the apex planet of this Yod, Jupiter impels wide-sweeping visionary action that establishes a socially sustainable and protective infrastructure for all people and all life. It impels the practical and well-grounded application of wealth and resources in an enterprising capacity to support the fundamental well-being of all life. Jupiter, on the Aldebaran-Antares axis, also impels expansive and mobilizing leadership in business and politics.
This Yod creates stimulus to creatively apply Saturn, with dedicated, committed, reliable and concretized action from a place of inner equipoise, wisdom and unbiased compassion, toward the manifestation of the Jupiter-Aldebaran theme. Jupiter pulls Saturn’s theme (and the establish patriarchal structures) into an expansive and higher-order expression that serves the Vision of Aldebaran. The Jupiter-Saturn quincunx motivates creativity to bring the laws of man (Saturn) into alignment with the higher spiritual laws of nature (Jupiter).
Simultaneously the Yod creates stimulus to creatively apply Pluto, a greater truth being revealed through the dismantling of the old world paradigm, toward the manifestation of the Jupiter-Aldebaran theme.
Generally, a Venus-Jupiter opposition can impel an over-confident over-indulgence and a desire for immediate gratification. Thus it is important to realize that band-aids used for immediate results do not provide real solution, neither in our external world paradigm or in our personal lives where a deep level of healing and evolution is required—something that unfolds in our continuing evolutionary spiral through time.
Venus-Antares impels a passionate confident and rebellious expression of the feminine force to help mobilize the Jupiter-Vision of Aldebaran theme, especially in the business and political arenas. Venus-Antares also impels the application of resources in a way that challenges the existing political-business arena and that supports mobilizing Jupiter's expansive new vision.
If we progress the Winter Ingress chart to June 19, 2013, when the Fed made the announcement the progressed meridian straddles the Grand Cross triggering the issues highlighted by Nick Fiorenza.
The essential message is no band aids will do ; change the economic paradigm for the welfare of the masses.
If we are right in our analysis on 26 Aug 2013 (+/- 2 days) when the progressed MC touches Jupiter in the Yod we should see another financial shock to the old world paradigm.
