As I mentioned here and here and here we are experiencing a hideous square between Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. The tension is great but certainly on days where the aspect is exact the pain is a bit concentrated (to say the least) . The first hit took place on November 15 and the second is January 31.
And, OMG it showed up in the most perfectly (hideous) way. Contracts and legal maneuvers are in landscape of Libra and god knows business and money is Capricorn. I was only partly joking when I wrote on Capricorn new moon that one of my favorite lyrics, "I've got my mind on money and my money on my mind" would be the calling call of the month and never was it more true than the Supreme Court's mindbogglingly ruling yesterday. If you have not heard the supreme court ruling overturned the limit on campaign donations by businesses. Now the roads are clear for a politician who plays ball with let's say Big Pharms to have Eli Lilly or Merck donate endless shovels of cold hard cash to their campaign. And I can't say it any better than this:
"We are moving to an age where we won't have the senator from Arkansas or the congressman from North Carolina, but the senator from Wal-Mart and the congressman from Bank of America," said Melanie Sloan, director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
Saturn Square Pluto is in the house. We will continue to feel the pressure of these two planets although it will dissipate a bit in the spring but then build up for big ass peak in August and then come back again in the Spring and Summer of 2011. I would say, we should expect more shit to hit the fan but I dunno, maybe people will see through this crap.
And fwiw, also yesterday there was a big drop in the Dow. Of which I say, "no shit, sherlock."
ETA: I was poking around on NodeOrama (see link on the right) and MsGeminiRising posted a link to her blog which had a great note Jupiter in Pisces and this Judicial Move. She is completely correct on it. Give it a read.
ETA2: I had inadvertantly written 1/21 for the exact square. Total typo...it is 1/31
