“Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.” Garrison Keillor

“Cosmic Word of The Day”: Farewell

Definition: 1) an expression of good wishes at parting 2) leave-taking; departure

Origin: 1325-75; ME far wel


Saturn’s getting ready to bid farewell to Virgo for Libra.  He won’t be back in Virgo until 2037, so for some of us this may be the last time that Saturn is in Virgo in our lifetimes. Kind of sad, when you think about it. That whole “growing old” Saturnian process.

Saturn’s bags are all meticulously packed. His merry little departure into matrimonial Libra occurring tomorrow (11:08 am EDT).  He will blissfully stay in Libra until October 2012.

All Saturn really has left to do now in Virgo is clean the toilet bowls and maybe do a bit of spot vacuuming. He wants to make sure that he gets the full rent deposit back that he put down when he moved into Virgo back in September of 2007.  Characteristically, frugal Saturn will not rest until ever red cent is returned to him and fully accounted for.

Later, while Saturn is disinfecting the toilets, he will nostalgically recollect upon the last time he was in Libra.  Jimmy Carter was still the U.S. President when he entered Libra in September of 1980, but a couple months later, Carter would lose to Ronald Reagan. Saturn is thinking that maybe he personally “jinxed” Carter, as he was on Carter’s Libra Sun when he lost the election.

Saturn is also wondering if any of his old cronies from 30 years ago are still hanging out in Libra. Or, perhaps they’ve already kicked the bucket.  He hasn’t really been in touch with anyone since he left that sign in August of 1983. He doubts if anyone even remembers him, let alone misses him. Saturn’s not exactly, “Mr. Charming.”  Although, there was one girl that Saturn still remembers fondly…

In the News:

It’s been a long time coming, but the U.S. Senate is reportedly poised to pass an extension of unemployment insurance today, the very last full day that Karma Lord Saturn is in Virgo, the sign of labor and employment. Saturn in Virgo, the last three years, has correlated with high unemployment around the world. In the U.S., the overall unemployment is 9.7 but is in double-digits for minorities, women, and low-income communities. Long-term unemployment is a grave concern: up to 46 percent of the unemployed have been unemployed for more than 6 months. Saturn is associated with “loss and contraction” and also at the same time “efficiency,” not that the two are always necessarily related, either. With Saturn, however, we usually learn how to get by on less.

The Senate Judiciary Committee  approved Solicitor General Elena Kagan as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court today.  The nomination now goes to the full Senate where confirmation is expected in a few days. This approval today by the Senate Judiciary Committee is coming about just as Saturn gets ready to move into Libra on Wednesday, the sign that rules courts of law, including the Supreme Court.  It appears she will be confirmed by the Senate with Saturn at 0 degrees of Libra.

Also on Monday, there was a “breakthrough announcement” that an anti-AIDS vaginal gel can help prevent and reduce a woman’s chances of getting HIV from an affected partner. The news came with Expansive Jupiter in discovery Aries exactly square Pluto which is associated with medical research as well as sexually-transmitted diseases.  Also we had “News Breaker” Mercury forming an exact 135-link to both Pluto and Jupiter (sesquiquadrate aspect) accentuating the Jupiter-Pluto square.  Jupiter is also still conjunct Scientific, Innovative Uranus in Aries.

With the Sun transiting Cancer quinqunx (adjustment influence) to Neptune (oil and sea) we are also hearing news of possible seepage problems at the BP well, although the seepage may not be connected to the leak. BP continues to conduct pressure tests of its new cap on the well. The only problem here with Neptune, sometimes it’s hard to “see clearly” the true nature of things.
