A major vote in Greece will occur today that will both shape the future of its economy and Europe’s monetary union. The Greek Bailout Referendum has now become critical, for if the Greek voters vote “No” and side with Tsipras government, then there will be a very sharp recession over the next few months, tax collection will collapse, and the Tsipras government is unlikely to survive the economic collapse. However, if the public votes “yes,” then the existing government will likely be reorganized, the banks will be able to reopen, and conclude the terms set by the European Union.
Greeks just started (as of this writing) casting ballots today in the closely watched bailout referendum, with opinion polls showing people evenly split on whether to accept the EU creditors’ proposals for more austerity in exchange for additional rescue loans, or defiantly reject the deal and leave the Eurozone.
According to European “futures market” data, there is a 67% probability that the public will vote “Yes” in today’s Greek Referendum Vote, while the “No” Vote has a modest 36% chance of succeeding. Therefore, the “Yes” Vote is the house favorite and assigned to the 1st House in the contest horary figure, and the “No” Vote – the Underdog, is assigned to the 7th House.
The Moon rules the remaining undecided Greek voters, and the 10th House is the prize: the outcome of the Referendum vote.
Capricorn is on the Ascendant, therefore Saturn rules the 1st House. The sign Cancer is on the Descendant. Since the Moon rules the voters in political contest horary, we must move to the next sign over to Leo. Therefore the Sun rules the 7th House. Before we proceed with judgement, let’s list our Contest Horary Rules of Engagement:

The contest horary testimonies indicate that the “No” Vote has been losing traction and strength since the “Greek Default” on July 30th. The Moon, which rules the undecided voters, is in the sign Aquarius, an infertile sign – a testimony of aging Babyboomer voters on the verge of retirement will be the key voting demographic group to impact the outcome of the Referendum vote. The Moon makes an aspect by opposition to Venus in the 7th House, and translates her light to Saturn – ruler of the Favorite by square – indicating that the remaining voters that are undecided will swing the close vote to the “Yes” Vote. Since the Moon rules the day and placed in a angular house, we can expect high voter turn-out. to be high.
The Moon’s last aspect is a square to Saturn indicating an extremely Close “Yes” Vote outcome. Since the ruler of the 10th Mars is combust and in opposition to Pluto, testimonies that indicate that Sunday’s vote is more about about whether Greece will agree to remain a debt colony of Germany, pardon its differences with the EU, even as the IMF and Athens agree that the country’s catastrophic debt level is unsustainable and untenable.
Pluto rules the EU oligarchial elite and its Central Banking system. The applying Mars-Pluto opposition indicates that EU is in trouble not because of Greece, but because of forced supranational inter-dependency of Portugal, Ireland, Italy and Spain who have even bigger sovereign debt disasters then Greece, brewing on the near horizon. The EU by all rights should not exist, nor should any centralized supranational single currency system.
The Sun is both the ruler of the “No” Vote and the Tsipras government. The Sun is of modest strength and in opposition to malefic Pluto after Moon changes signs. A testimony that indicates that the outcome of Sunday’s vote will likely lead to resignation of the Tsipras government and the call for a new election for a new unity government.
Bottom Line: The “Yes” Vote horary testimonies show less pain for Greece on the short term, but a loss of national sovereignty, with no hope of economy for over a generation.
