Oh, Astrology through History, my favorite subject! I remember many astrologers looking into History when Pluto first went to Capricorn in order to see what would lie ahead. Quite honestly, most accounts made me cringe, because it was obvious people had written those articles didn't have adequate gasp of History as a discipline to see beyond Wikipedia Chronologies from which they had handpicked events supporting their particular view. For instance, I remember Religious Persecution being something many astrologers saw coming, because yes, some had taken place during Pluto in Capricorn. But in a big picture, the most outragious persecutions took place when Pluto was not in Capricorn.
The ones quoted here are actually good accounts, although I immediately noticed Crusades quoted for 1024-1041, and there weren't any notable ones during that period. The first Crusade took place 1096-1099 (Pluto in Pisces and Aries), and I'd say Crusades peaked around 1150 (Pluto in Taurus), with Second Crusade to Holy Land and Germanic/Nordic Expansion in Baltic States taking place in the same time.
Something I can quite confidently say, after looking at Pluto in Capricorn cycles is that yes, major vulcanic activity is very likely. Famine and pandemics have traditionally been result of vulcanic activity lowering temperatures, but with the modern medicine, they are less likely. Economically speaking, we're in austere times, but this doesn't mean some areas using the energy in their advantage couldn't prosper (Hanseatic Alliance, which was founded in the 13th Century during Pluto in Capricorn,Geneva in the 16th Century and Prussia in the 18th Century).
Oh, and did I mention overbloated, Plutocratic Administrations better to be prepared to face the critic and renew in order to survive? Catholic Church did, after Reformation, and is still around. French 18th Century Court, where the word burocracy was conned, didn't, and was wiped away during Pluto in Aquarius.
It doesn't all sound that aweful, but like all transits, there are ups and downs/good and bad,
So America's Pluto return is coming up in a few years
Plutonic Administrastions renewing is definitely something to look forward to, even if the journey to rock bottom and then back up won't be very pleasant. The nature stuff... we can't control it (at least not the volcanos, and we only have so much control over epidemics) so why worry about it? The people who work in those areas should be on top of their game now but personally I'm not going to spend time on it.
