Research on the position of Lucifer in the horoscope of countries:
it is incredible how merely translating the positions of Lucifer in relationship to the sign and house bring fundamental issues of the country to the fore. The word "weakening" is used because that is how I suspect Lucifer works. In some cases it almost seems the outcome is exactly the strength of the country rather than weakness. But Lucifer works in devious ways, so to speak. More research is needed.
