From a Reader:
I would like to take you up on the offer for some guidance on getting out of this home business lack of good consistent cashflow I’ve been having that has put me in a rut the past few years, if not more overall. I’m staying mentally strong but really would like some insight as things have taken a very rough turn recently.
After looking at your chart it makes perfect sense you’d have a home business. You have Sun which rules your 10th house of career in your 4th house of your home. However, it makes perfect sense you would be having probably the worst time ever in your working life since perhaps you set out as a young person. You have Pluto transiting your 2nd house of work creating what is called a T-Square between your north node and part of fortune in your 5th house and your Uranus, south node and Jupiter in Libra in your 11th house, all of this probably followed a rough patch starting in the winter of 2005 and going on and off for a few years. This would have been when Pluto was going through your 2nd house squaring Pluto in your 11th house.
Friends at that time probably let you down, perhaps one worked for you and messed you up, or your wishes for your business didn’t materialize in the way you had expected, or a combination of both. In order to make things work you would have had to take control yourself, perhaps restructure things and rely more on a partner when you hadn’t before. I imagine this was probably a romantic relationship but it could have been a business partner, that you fell back on which you didn’t want to do for many reasons, however, it was the right move and paid off.
This could very well have been when you started the business or it took of and you had to make serious adjustments to keep up, but none the less it was fraught with anxiety and trouble with someone who was supposed to be a friend.
Now with Pluto reeking havoc it is putting strain on your partnership and on your ability to see a creative way out which you usually have no problem doing as you are gifted that way. You are truly a go getter, an entrepreneur and will make mountains move under normal circumstances. Others admire this amazing ability you have to realize your dreams in ways they can only imagine, yet here you are with Pluto screwing all that up! All of this would have started around the time of the stock market crash and you have seen up and down months ever since as Pluto goes back and forth creating this T-Square. Everything has been very unstable.
For you all of this was a very personal – the crash hugely impacted what you do for your business in a way that it didn’t (directly that is) for most people. Well, luckily for you Pluto will make its last transit this November and then be on its way, meaning you aren’t out of the woods, but you soon will be. Once you have that monster off your back, you will probably physically feel your body unwind. December of 2010 it will be personally past reeking havoc in your chart for a while.
But don’t get, too, cocky because it will hit your Saturn and Venus in the 6th house again effecting work, your career and relationship in about eight years. If you learn your lessons here and prepare for this however you can use this energy to your advantage and again re-envision yourself, this time with the help of very powerful friends (there will be a nice trine from Pluto at the time to your natal Pluto in Virgo). This will bring about a whole new world of opportunities much bigger than anything you will have ever dealt with, but it will also be a hard shift in your life and you’ll have to brace yourself for that aspect of it.
OK, I don’t normally do this (especially with no information about a person other than their first name and birth date) but I can’t shake this, you really have to be careful about your marriage at that time. Remember what I’m saying here and don’t do anything silly, think of your wife and children and wait out that period of time, meaning don’t do anything regarding leaving your wife or something until after 2020, if you’re still feeling it then go for it, the transit will have passed. And if something happens on your wife’s end, then work it through and wait it out. Don’t just give up because you’re angry. This is a huge mistake so many people make. None of us are perfect and while you may be saying to yourself “that will never happen to me,” please just take note and remember to not let yourself be ruled by the pulling apart aspect of Pluto at that time in terms of your personal life. Try to work it out and learn compassion instead and grow from the aspect, you will get so much more for doing so.
Forewarned is forearmed and I myself have found that things really get the energy taken out of them and can be turned to positive ends almost entirely if one is prepared. No one has a perfect life, we all have problems however when you know things are just temporary (and that means good as well as bad) it makes life more precious and a lot easier to weather the bad.
Try not to freak out. You’re going to be OK. Save your money and be very thrifty and conservative. Things will get much better next year and every month from the beginning on you will feel it getting better.
Hold tight for now, the worst (for you) is almost over, for now.
And to everyone out there just a reality check: Life never stays stationary. It moves forward or backward depending on how you use the energy being sent to you. If you try to keep things the same they explode. Also for every action there is a reaction. We are in a time of reckoning (for the world that is) and our materialism is now being checked by lack. So in your own life make sure from now on not to get caught up in the consumerism of our culture to the degree we all were before. This is a chance to be more responsible with how we go forward and a lesson in the finite world in which we live.
Best to all,
