I am starting this thread because we are in for a very difficult (or interesting) period in the years ahead.
Immediately, we are facing an opposition between Saturn and Uranus. These two planets have very little in common. The aspect is 4 degrees away exact today, but Saturn will be moving closer and closer, until Election Day, when it will finally confront Uranus.
So, what does this mean?
The forces of order tradition,and control are confronting the forces of disruption, revolution, and disorder.
The "bail-out" votes in Congress are tied in with this forming aspect. If you think about it, you can probably "see" how it works, but please understand that nothing has been resolved, and the passage of the Bill has not really fixed the problem.
If anything, the general public is just now becoming aware of the conflict between traditional responsible money management, and all the unusual shenanigans that have challenged stability.
Enough for now. More later, and I hope the other excellent astrologers will join me here, so we can be prepared for the challenging times to come.
