Saturn's Ingress into Libra
Inventions that were rumors during the transit of Saturn in
Virgo are ready to come to market. When Saturn transits
Libra the inventors put on their final artistic touches and include
extra value to their product. Behind the scenes of bringing to
the public a new product are a myriad of contracts, agreements,
and financing deals. Initial Public Offerings will return to the
stock exchanges. For example: Apple computer has Saturn
in Libra in their IPO.
Renaissance in Communications
Libra favors inventions and new products that
enhance the delivery of information to the public . Saturn in
Libra presents inventions that offer every one equal access to
knowledge. Previous transits of Saturn through Libra have introduced
movable type, Morris code, talking movies, color TV and the personal
Saturn begins transiting Libra October 29, 2009
Saturn plans on visiting Libra on October 29,
2009 only to return to Virgo on April 8, 2010. He returns to Libra
July 22, 2010 and plans to stay until October 5, 2012.
The Symbol for Libra is the Scales
Consider how difficult it is to balance the scales. The
sign Saturn transits indicates there will be numerous problems
concerning a fair deal for all parties involved. Saturn
is not afraid to explain the problems and in Libra he will insist
on fair and equitable solutions. In the world of business
the plethora of various communications devises will help solve
the problems quickly.
Saturn seeks to identify the problems in relationships
between financial partners and while in Libra he will seek solutions.
In the world of finance, hedge funds, and mutual funds will have
unique partnership problems that threaten to shorten the life
of these funds. Negotiations concerning mergers and acquisitions
will be difficult. Confusing laws as well as tax consequences
will add to the negotiator's challenges. Fortunately Libra prefers
to argue until all of the parties have made a fair decision or
Libra is the great referee of the Zodiac.
Saturn's transit of Libra makes it very difficult to determine
which side of the issue is correct. Pluto's transit of Capricorn
during the past year has quickly changed the rules. Government's
regulations as well as rules of the various exchanges have been
dramatic and often with unintended consequences. Courts and judges
will have difficulty applying the new rules so that each litigant
is treated fairly. Legal issues abound with government officials
unable to help either side of the question.
While moving through Libra problems will occur
in sectors considered to be luxury items. Since disposable
income will find its way into the communications sectors, the
sectors that include wearable art, home furnishings and luxury
toys will find their customers have empty pockets. Saturn is going
to make it very difficult for merchants of all things beautiful
and expensive from jewelry to gourmet candy. Generally cooler
weather is in the forecast therefore shoppers will purchase warmer
clothing including wool and fur. Apparel makers find thrifty consumers
insist on quality at a fair price. The list of sectors ruled by
Libra can be found in The Textbooks for Financial Astrology

Libra was difficult for leaders. President Reagan and Pope John
Paul were shot. and Anwar Sadat was killed.
Saturn's entrance into Libra also announces the devaluation
of a currency. Historically fiat currencies of the various
nations were beset by hyper-inflation. In 1923 it was the
Mark, in 1950 it was the yen, and in 1981 it was the Peso. The
countries involved borrowed too much money without the reserves
required to back their paper currencies.
USA Saturn Return. Is the dollar in trouble?
Jupiter and Saturn are the planets of business. The
business function of both planets is explained in detail in The
Textbook for Financial Astrology. Both are in very
powerful positions. In the Sibley chart of the USA
both are angular and the business of the USA is business.
Jupiter is in the seventh house and rules the first. Saturn is
in the 10th house and rules the second and third house.
When a transiting planet makes a conjunction with its position
in the natal chart, it is called a Return. During 2010-2011,
the USA chart will have a Saturn Return. If the USA
is on the right path things will be great. If the
USA is on the wrong path then a Saturn return will kick her in
the pants until she arrives on the exactly correct path. Read
my article on the dollar on our Blog.
The USA will have a Saturn return three times during the week
of November 26, 2010, the week of March 21, 2011 and the week
of August 20, 2011. Saturn is conjunct the Sun of
the Dollar on November 2011, and in May and July of 2012. Saturn
conjunct the Sun is very tough, forcing Americans to take
a strict account of their currency. Barter is the second

involved in the Civil War. Read the history

Knowledge is Power
Saturn in Libra announces a revolution in communications
and the old rules of who has access to information are changed
forever. The previous method of controlling which group has access
to information is forever replaced. New and exciting media
becomes available to everyone changing our world view.
People love news, information and great stories told and retold.
Each invention of new media soon becomes available to everyone
. The underemployed work force created while Saturn was in Virgo
had plenty of time to think or study. Creative folks refined their
ideas while skilled workers returned to school to learn new techniques.
Once retrained the workforce will find new jobs and money in their
pockets to spend on the new inventions therefore a Saturn in Libra.
Saturn's ingress into Libra is the culmination of each generation's
information Renaissance. Saturn's ingress into Libra allows
new inventions and great ideas to move into the public domain.
And simultaneously all sorts of new IPO's, mergers and acquisitions,
contracts, legal issues and a huge problem with the currency.
In two and a half years we will all be wireless and hopefully
off the grid. Remember to read Fiscal Cents, I've been suggesting
ideas for each Sun Sign on to make the New Economy work for you.
