Libra...a rock and a hard place....
Yesterday the stock market in the United States took a tumble. I haven't turned on today's news but I'm sort of assuming another assault is taking place as I know it did in Asia last night. What is going on?
Well as we know Venus moved into Libra last week and upon arrival it began its tension with Uranus and Pluto. For those of you who don't quite understand squares and oppositions, let me give you a visual. Pretend you are facing a clock. At the 12 oclock let's put Pluto. On the 3 o'clock let's put Uranus. And as you remember from 8th grade geometry---they make a complete 90 degree right angle, correct?
Now, at this time of the year we have the faster planets, Sun, Mercury, Venus moving into Libra like they do every year around in the Fall Months. And they are all coming in on the 9 clock. So, they are opposite the 3 o'clock (Uranus) and they are the other right angle to the 12 (pluto).
We call this aspect a T Square.
Last week it was Venus who went in and activated the T Square. I wrote about how I saw the tension being played out in space and air travel. But of course, Venus also rules money and values.
Then on Wednesday, the Sun entered Libra and it now was beginning to get into T Square formation and we have got the air going out of the stock market again with talk of Double Dip. The question is will it gain momentum next week?
I gotta say, I'm not so sure. I'm in the middle of drafting my Libra New Moon article and it is a fairly skanky moon. Because on the New Moon those Tsquares are everywhere influencing the 28 day cycle.
We are in a tough period. If you know your chart, you should pay attention to the areas of your chart around 3 or 4 degrees, Aries, Libra and Capricorn. If you have a planet at 3 or 4 degrees of Cancer that too is important.
What do you do when you are between a rock and a hard place? Keep calm. Keep very calm.
