The Tempest of 2014
I was planning to post about this topic closer to the end of the year, but (very Left-wing blog) Starlight News beat me to it. Nancy also mentions a point or two I may have missed were I to write the article entirely myself.
In 2014, transiting Pluto will hang in the range between 11 and almost-14 degrees Capricorn. Any person or entity with natal planets within those degrees in the signs of Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra, or Capricorn (forming a 30-degree-multiple aspect not a trine, sextile, or semisextile) will undergo some significant events. The Starlight blog post mentions the US chart and Barack Obama's chart, which I would have mentioned, as well as the US Congress chart which I probably would have overlooked. It omits two affected charts of interest to libertarians and those interested in monetary policy: the Federal Reserve and Bitcoin.
We've suggested numerous times that Pluto conjoining the Bitcoin Sun (and first solar return Venus) will probably have a very noticeable effect on the BTC price. Possibly related is that the configuration we're discussing has Uranus in a quincunx with the Federal Reserve Moon and Pluto quincunx the Fed's Saturn. The Moon on that chart rules the Ascendant as well as Mars and Neptune; Saturn rules the Sun. A possible and actually quite likely scenario is that the Fed makes moves toward massively expanded money-printing... in anticipation of which Bitcoin prices (yet again) raise the roof. While all sorts of things might happen under next spring's configuration, a monetary crisis in the US would account for all the charts involved in one fell swoop.
Libertarians generally consider such a crisis inevitable, albeit nearly impossible to predict the timing of. The US dollar is controlled by highly secretive private interests (the Fed is, after all, a privately-owned corporation to which the US has illegally granted a monopoly on currency-creation). This puts those secretive private interests entirely in the driver's seat. If and when the crisis does occur, libertarians and many conservatives who have prepared for it will find themselves in far better position than those who have placed their faith in the false God that is the State.
With regard to Bitcoin, I think the vicinity of January 11 2014 will bring dramatic events.

Went to the Starlight article. Find it interesting the she had so many comments. Who are those people trying to persuade? And of what? What of November 30??

Those comments are all over the place... almost as if they're not even commenting on the original article at all. As for November 30, I can't help but wonder if that Sun-Uranus configuration is behind the Iran nuke deal -- it's very uncharacteristic of the US to move towards peace these days. But we'll see if Nancy is right soon enough.

Nancy's Sun-Uranus configuration, with the progressed Sun in the third house of local travel, may seem to apply to the Metro North train crash in NY and the death of "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker in a car crash this weekend. Transiting Uranus is tightly sextile the Sibley Uranus. These are tragic events but small ones for America at large.

A third transportation mishap in the US, probably attributable to the same Sun-Uranus progression/transit pattern on the Sibley chart: http://www.telegram.com/article/20131201/NEWS/131209998/1116

A few more charts posted here that will be affected by the coming configuration, including Putin and Iran.

Overstock.com just announced Bitcoin integration. The BTC price is climbing fast.
I think this may be the "dramatic events" I expected for right now.
