I wrote a
few weeks ago about the affect of Mars
and Venus, both in their detriment
at this time, and how this is affecting
the women who are coming forward to report sexual abuse by men. This all began
in October, with the #Metoo
and quickly spread across the globe.
Mars is in Libra and Venus in Scorpio, and neither sign is comfortable in
this energy, but the fact they are in mutual reception also contributes to the
current phenomenon. When planets are in mutual reception with each other, you
might say they help each other out, energetically. Venus (rules women) in
Scorpio rules the eighth house of sex and secrets. Mars (rules men) in Libra is
at its detriment in this sign, but benefits from Venus in Scorpio's ruler Mars.
Add to the picture Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter here is also concerned with
eighth house matters: sex, secrecy and other people's money. Whatever Jupiter
touches it increases and enlarges, and in this case it is reports of sexual
abuse which has been rampant in the American workplace for decades. It has
taken this particular planetary combination to bring these issues to light.
actually add Saturn
to the mix, as it moves through the last few degrees, and approaches its
entrance to Capricorn on December 21,
karma, and Saturn in this sign is at home and very powerful. You could say, the
chickens are coming home to roost in many instances with Saturn in its own
(Judge) Roy Moore will be one such individual, as I wrote last week. As
Saturn gets closer to its opposition to his natal Venus and its squares his Neptune,
I look to see a very public downfall
after the new year.
public figure to be accused of widespread sexual abuse is TV
Charlie Rose, who has been accused by 8 women of sexual abuse and inappropriate
conduct. Rose was relieved of his duties November 21.
Rose is a 14
degree Capricorn Sun. Pluto has been conjunct his Sun for several years, and
all Pluto transits can ultimately bring change beyond our ability to control.
At 19 degrees, transiting Pluto will oppose his Cancer ascendant, likely
bringing his career to a close, or otherwise, bring change. Nothing will be as
it was before. Uranus is involved in the mix, as it conjuncted his 26 degree Mars
in Aries, and squared his 23 degree
Mercury in Capricorn that lies in his 7th house of partners. Uranus-Mercury
transits often coincide with unexpected news. Saturn is approaching a square to
his 29 degree Neptune in Virgo, and this transit is often associated with
public disgrace and downfall.
Moore are just two of the many powerful men that have been accused of extreme
sexual misconduct over the past several months.
remains in Scorpio over the next year, I expect this trend to continue.
men have historically taken advantage of women and pressed advances on them for
decades, if not centuries in the workplace and beyond. Let's hope this
planetary combination brings enough attention to the issue to create real
change in the future, as opposed to a backlash against reporting sexual abuse, which I see as a possibility.
