Sun signs in China

In China Scorpio (and Virgo) people find it hard to get a job. Employers prefer Capricorns, or those born under Libra or Pisces. Is that true? It is a crazy story! Can anybody please tell those bosses that people are not their sun sign and that all signs have necessary qualities? French coach Domenech tried to win with a team without Scorpio's and he failed (but maybe not because of that:). It is a pity that China has no free internet (recently Turkey followed into China's footsteps). And that there are so few of them who speak English. Or else they could join the international astrologer's community and see that there is no reason to force Scorpio's to start their own business and become 'the competition'! Think of that, Chinese employers! (and no, I am not a Scorpio, but I hate it when astrology is being abused to blame or hurt 1/12th of the population). It is a cheap alternative for a psychological test and just another way of making up your mind by using an oracle. The nasty thing is bias and prejudice. Those kinds of qualifications are rather silly, but I am afraid that that is the way that astrology is being used by the millions. And not just in China. Most of us started with sun sign astrology and not with the picture of a chart. And isn't it easy to put a sticker on a person and disqualify or not in a second? It is as childish as avoiding red heads or fat people. 

Now that I said this I must admit that shortly after problems with a Gemini I had just a second of second thoughts when I met another one! Just one second! I am only human, sorry! I want to put disclaimers at the end of articles about sun signs, telling people that a person is not a sun sign. Hope that it helps, but I have my doubts! It might be too late for Chinese Scorpio's!

Would you avoid to employ a Scorpio? Do you judge people by their sun sign? Just for one second? Do the poll and choose what sign you wouldn't give a job if you were the manager! Or select: I wouldn't select by sign!

The transit Saturn opposition Moon experience

Ever experienced transit Saturn in hard aspect with progressed Moon? It is depressing! It is marking a nasty period to remember. For me it is about being ill too long and watching sad stories.

Remember that on October 6 I had an acute vertigo with Pr A/M opposition Neptune and shortly after an exact transit Saturn conjunct Neptune in Libra? It was very accurate 'Astrologic' for being ill in the field of balance (Libra). They told me that I would be cured in maximum 6 weeks. Most sites tell that and some people think that I should have been better because the books and sites say so. But it has been 8 weeks now and I am not much less dizzy and tired than it was 4 weeks ago! (Though I can write this post now and I couldn't do this in the first week, of course.) I had 3 days to remember how life was before the attack, and I had 47 days more or less seasick and tired. It's not as they said, but thanks to the internet I know that I am not the only exception at all! See the links for info and help in the UK ...It is a very interesting site about Labyrinthitis, written by two young women who have been suffering for months (or years)! I hope that I stop being 'dizzy' much sooner! But I couldn't help worrying, could I, with transit Saturn?

One day I will be OK, I know! That doesn't mean that I haven''t felt Saturn on my Moon! The aspect was exact last Sunday. That is when I watched a sad play (Ivan and the dogs, see YouTube) about the real life story of a homeless boy in Russia, who was sort of saved by dogs and in the end (unlike in the real life story) the dogs died! OMG! This didn't exactly help to make me feel happy! I love dogs (I have Sun sextile Neptune -read about Sun trine Neptune and dog lovers - and see the doggyscope on Astromarkt). It seems that I keep seeing sad stories everywhere! We are all in the middle of an economic and political depression, of course, and life is harder for others, I know, but I am glad that Saturn moves on. However, the old man is on his way to a square with Mars, just before Christmas. I will tell you what happened...

Today, I have one of those days that I would almost believe that the 'virus' (or whatever) has left my inner ear forever (but even though the Moon is in Sagittarius, I hesitate to start cheering).  I feel light and when I shake my head there is only a faint resonation of the movement. Can I see progress in the chart? Yes I can: Transit Jupiter sextile Jupiter. This should mean balance and equilibrium (that is what Hand says about this transit. For some reason there is a lot of balance in the text)! The transit will be exact very soon, on November 30. It will be exact again on January 20 2012 (with a number of transits indicating change and P Moon trine Venus). Maybe there is some progress in between! I consider the Pluto transit to be one of the indications of change and ... come backs! On December 20 transit Pluto is semi square my Progressed Sun. So, maybe just a few more weeks to go. 

What happened to you with transit Saturn with Moon or Mars? And/or how for those who had vertigo once: what transits and progressions accompanied that in your life?

1. gives a lot of information!

2. When you have transit Saturn opposition Moon or progressed Moon it is even harder when you try to keep up appearances and look 'normal', even though the mirror shows the contrary. (Have you read the Moon-Saturn post yet?)

3. In the post about Progressed Moon signs and body care I told (myself) that I should take care with dying hair now that I have Progressed Moon in Aries. The day before I had the attack I paid a visit to the hair dresser! 
4. In the post about aspect with Progressed Moon I mentined that with Saturn you tend to have low expectations and worry too much. 
5. I have Prg Moon in the first house and this is what I wrote about that:
Progressed Moon through the first house: growing need to present yourself, emotional coming out
This progressed Moon changes your attitude and often also the way you look. People will tell you how you have changed and find you more attractive. Your emotional coming out might cost you a lot of handkerchiefs...

Elections in Spain

This is the chart of Prime Minister Zapatero (Spain). On Sunday November20 2011 there are elections in Spain and as you see in the chart drawing: this is not the best moment for him. The polls are not in his favor. And Transit Saturn is exactly opposition Midheaven in the AA rated chart! Saturn means 'endings' or let's say: finito. And Midheaven is the point in the chart that is reflecting your social position. His main opponent, Mariano Rajoy has transit Pluto now square the natal Sun and that is a challenging aspect, showing stress in an intense period of change. The problems that he will be facing if he wins, are indeed a challenge.

Also visit: for example the article about Sun-Pluto aspects. Or see the labels about Saturn-MC. One of the posts is about Saturn_MC in Obama's chart (during bad results in an election and stitches)

Eddie Chapman and the chart of his day of birth

Just enjoyed BBC's story of Scorpio Eddie Chapman (aka Agent ZigZag), a criminal and a double agent in WW2. His activities saved many lives in London. Read the story on BBC: Ben Macintyre wrote a book about him. Here is my view on what in his chart contributed to his way of living. He was a spy and he also was a womanizer who didn't (manage to) keep his promise to a Norwegian mistress who spent months in jail because after the war the Norwegian judges didn't believe that the German officer in her house was in fact a British spy. And he didn't come back to tell them...

1. Broaken oaths...
He was born on November 16, 1914 with Sun inconjunct Orcus, symbol of broaken oaths.

2. The international
Do you mind if I like the fact that his Jupiter didn't make major aspects? That made him an international at any possible level!
It wouldn't surprise me if the midpoint Sun/Moon was square his 'calling' Jupiter. He escaped many times and lived in France, Norway and on a Canary island (Spain). He also was fond of fast cars. His Venus and Mars in Sagittarius might have attracted him to travelling.

3. Courage
He was an expert in explosives and didn't seem to have a problem with stress or tension much. Moon in Scorpio is courageous...

There are a number of necessary 'ingredients' to be a double agent, convincing and not afraid to even get back to occupied Europe. With his character and ability to convince (or cheat) he was fit for the job at that moment in history.

Synastry of Johan Cruyff and Louis van Gaal

Ajax appointed Louis van Gaal as general manager to be, in 2012. It seems like a stab in the back of Johan Cruyff, Ajax commissioner, in the middle a period of serious discord in the football club. Van Gaal and Cruyff don't speak to each other since more than 20 years! They are no match at all and are supposed to work together! This is the synastry:

Sun of Cruyff in Taurus square Sun of Van Gaal in Leo
Moon of Cruyff square Moon of Van Gaal
Sun/Moon of Cruyff semi square Neptune of Van Gaal
A/M of Cruyff semi square Pluto of Van Gaal

And both men have Mars rising before the Sun (they are competitive - and they should be in their field:).

The discord in the chart of Cruyff is obviously related to Eris right now. Above is the chart, with progressions and transits. The day of birth of Louis van Gaal is August 8, 1951. Here is the chart of Cruyff with the natal positions of Van Gaal in green.
