interesting horoscope about the Pluto return of the US. Apparently, at the birth of the US on July 4th 1776, Pluto, the ancient Roman wealth ruler, was placed in the US second house of assets and earning capacity. This placement caused the US to become "the wealthiest nation and the home of modern capitalism."
Tamplin then describes something else important that happened in 1776: "On March 9, a work appeared that would influence financial thinking for centuries after - Adam Smith's classic 'Wealth Of Nations'. Smith was a Scottish philosopher and economist. His magnum opus, appeared at the start of the Industrial Revolution.......This book traces history from the Fall of Rome to the feudal societies, to the mercantile age. Smith argued successfully that wealth was not created by hoarding precious metals, but rather through increasing production and expanding trade. His ideas made gross domestic product, a measure of a country's productive output, part of the fiscal vernacular. Smith also contended that an economy and markets were naturally self-regulating."
So, Tamplin not only links Pluto to the foundation of the U.S., but also to the everlasting influence of this classic book - by the way while showing the Cosimo Classics cover on Tamplin's website, which is much appreciated. What does this all mean when the US has its Pluto return in 2022? Tamplin believes that this will herald a total transformation of the U.S. and the global economy. Anyone following news events from Brexit to the Trump election, from increasing wealth disparity to unstoppable stockmarkets and the rise of cryptocurrencies, can attest that business as usual no longer applies, and should not be counted on. Brace yourself and be prepared by following websites such as Ed Tamplin's or reading books such as The Wealth of Nations.
