In my last blog, I said it seemed inevitable that Greece would leave the Euro, as a result of which a friend suggested a bet on it, which we agreed: 2 bottles of wine, 1 red, 1 white, £15 each, to be drunk at my place. The bet is that Greece will leave the Euro by the end of the year.
Since the last Greek elections, it does seem that Germany has moved in the direction of being willing to pay more to ensure the future of the Euro, and the Greeks have been becoming more wary of leaving the Euro. Even the main anti-bail out candidate Alexis Tsipras claims he wants Greece to remain in the Euro.

He was born on 28 July 1974, 4 days after the present republic was born. So his Sun conjuncts the Greek Sun, he is in tune with what sort of leader (Sun) the country wants. He is a Leo, with Sun trine Neptune, so he is a natural showman (as is Barack Obama, with Sun in Leo square to Neptune). Venus, Saturn, Mercury conjunct in early to mid Cancer, square to Pluto. There is a hidden (square) nationalist (Cancer) power (Pluto) agenda, and due to the transits of Uranus and Pluto, now is his moment. He quite possibly has Moon conjunct Neptune, as well as Sun trine. So he may not be what he seems. If elected, his terms with the bail-out people may be such that they have to say no, and Greece will leave the Euro, while blaming the Eurozone.
I think the chart for today, set for Athens, is very revealing. All day the Moon (the people) will have been in early Gemini, conjunct Jupiter and Venus and square to Neptune. And the Sun in applying trine to Neptune.

Jupiter in Gemini square to Neptune can be read as false prophets. The people (Moon) want to be saved (Neptune). This is a vulnerable place to be. The right wing candidate Antonis Samaras is promising more of the same, and that is not what the astrology of the day requires. That said, he has Sun conjunct Mars at 1 Gemini, conjoining today’s Moon, and trine to the natal Greek Moon, which is powerful. So he’s going to do well.

It’s looking maybe too close to call. Due to the Neptune influence of the day and in Tsipras’ chart, I’d say he is more favoured. I reckon the outcome will either be another stalemate or a governing left-wing coalition. Either way, Greece doesn’t look like it will proceed down the road of the present bailout conditions, with a bit of renegotiation. A stalemate and the ensuing chaos could lead to a military takeover. Today Mars at 21 Virgo conjoins Greece's Progressed Mars at 21 Virgo.
