Asperitus Casting Runes...
- Salutations, snivelling crustaceans! How is everything in the damp and murky seabed of your life? Last month we left you cleaning the public railways after you'd fled the financial fiasco of a collapsed sweatshop empire. You had a nice new franchise and a devoted though troubled partner. Were it not for the last minute arrival of the boys in blue, awful August may have ended on an optimistic note.
However, it was not to be and thus we take up the vile and bitter for yet another month, to wit, savage September! Welcome to it, twisted crab type things! As marauding Mars and eccentric Uranus dance in your solar ninth house for several weeks, you may dream of far climes, fight with nervy or unpredictable in-laws, wonder just what it is you believe in and pursue any necessary subterfuge or strategy to evade the machineries of justice.
Venus the goddess clashes with underworld Pluto and we see you poised in the corridor of your train. Should you turn yourself in or take evasive action. As you realize full well from reading an astrological forecast printed on the back of a discarded train ticket, miserable Saturn hobnobs in your odious sign so there's no escape from grim reality. You thus surrender to Johnny Law. Under a raft of aspects too tedious to recount, you spend a few nights in the clink, go up before the beak and get sentenced to three months community service cleaning trains on the very same line where you had your franchise. In fact, little miserable nitwits of the nipper, you've been sentenced to work for yourself! How fitting! Living proof that the law is indeed an ass!
Come the Full Moon in wretched Pisces, you're back on the very same train on the very same line doing the very same job. And they say nothing ever changes! Ha! What would they know! A great deal it seems!
As sober Saturn in your sign clashes with Chiron the wounded healer, a succession of partners past come to gloat over your low estate or ask for money, as some know you too well to believe you're broke. Eccentric Uranus moves back into idiot Aquarius while Venus the goddess moves into Libra. Thus you spend many hours at home late at night, trading online with your secret swag of funds and trying to recoup your lost fortunes. Mercury the messenger goes direct and you manage to swing a deal that allows you to buy into the company that owns the railway you work for. A cunning little coup you keep to yourself!
The great Sol Invicti moves into Libra, bringing a New Moon in that sign and tension with Venus. Your new partner leaves you, but scrounging relatives arrive at your door and doss down in your new abode. Marauding Mars moves forward and traditional battles with importunate in-laws resume. Nonetheless, you formulate your secret strategies and purchase a controlling interest in the railway.
But what's this? Mercury the messenger clashes a third and last time with underworld Pluto and we hear a screeching roar and the grinding of steel. Is this a train wreck? And will it derail your plans for economic recovery? We'll have to wait and see, little crab type things!
