When transit Orcus (now in in the 2nd degree of Virgo) is conjunct, square or opposition in your Midheaven, you might have to deal with broken promises in your career or be publicly punished as a result of breaking your word. That is because Orcus is the ancient punisher of broken oaths. It sounds creepy. In modern times, I think, contracts are part of the words that are related to the astrological symbol Orcus, too. I also noticed Orcus conjunct someone's Sun and later MC in the years of a change of location (while the new house was being built). Should that be because of contracts with builders, mortgages and deals, I wonder?
In relationships the promise to be true forever and ever is a difficult oath to keep and when oath (or broken oaths) are part of the deal, Orcus often holds a prominent position in the (progressed) chart.
There is still little known about the resonation of Orcus. I have written about Orcus before (see links). And here you see the ephemeris of Orcus (Astro.com) http://www.astro.com/swisseph/2004dw.htm At the moment Orcus is at 1.1 degree Virgo, and that is about opposition Neptune in Pisces. The next period seems to be a perfect to observe what happens in the lives of people with their Sun, Midheaven, Ascendant or prominent planet in the 2nd degree of Virgo.
Was Orcus conjunct your Sun or Midheaven or Ascendant when there was an important matter of contracts, oaths or promises? Or did the transit of Orcus perhaps introduce a hairy, bearded giant?:) Or, and that seems to happen all the time, didn't anything happen at all?
See the Ephemeris and check it.
