Angular aspects between Saturn and Pluto are also known to reflect natural disasters, particularly seismic and volcanic activity. A note on the Planetary Nodes: The nodes of the slower-moving planets from Jupiter to Pluto move extremely slowly, about one degree every 72 years.

We can anticipate important changes in the natural resources industry, the banking system, and regional and world leadership, but it is difficult at this point to anticipate what direction this powerful influence will take. Of course, the U.
