It was revealed today that traders at Barclay’s Bank have been fiddling the figures to make themselves richer and their bank look better than it was. The consequences of their greed are too far-reaching to even be properly quantified. Just look at the chart for this morning.
Venus (money) and Saturn (comeuppance) both turned direct this week. Venus is in Gemini (markets) of course, but she’s also at close but awkward angle to Pluto, which is the planet of sordid secrets. The Sun is just applying to an opposition to Pluto too, so we have a light being shone on the sewers.
Pluto is in Capricorn, the sign that rules institutions – and boy are we finding out about the corruption and incompetence in our core institutions…
But this latest revelation may just be the tip of another scandal-berg. Look at how the South Node is in a sandwich between Jupiter and Venus. Like Pluto, the South Node is about evacuation sometimes. Bluntly, it’s where the shit comes out. Jupiter and the SN are applying to each other.
Then there’s the Moon conjuncting Saturn in Libra this morning. This chart is set for when I first heard the news. The Moon is a trigger, of course, and Saturn in Libra has been all about rebalancing the books. Libra is about fairness, a subject we’ve heard a lot about in the last couple of years – the 99% vs the 1% for example. Saturn is leaving Libra in October – and when the taskmaster moves into Scorpio things could get much tougher for the people whose crimes have been revealed in the past few years.
When Saturn goes through Libra, we have the judgement. When Saturn goes through Scorpio, we get the punishment.
It’s interesting that Saturn is rather alone at the end of the sign there. Most of the other planets (aside from this morning’s Moon) are at the beginning of signs and in some aspect to each other. Can justice prevail? Or will the people gambling with our money get away with it again?
I think the fact that this case has opened up just after the first Uranus-Pluto square tells us that it ain’t over yet. Anyone who’s been fiddling the books in the City should not rest easy tonight.
