It's Just Money
I always thought the modern financial stuff a bit like evanescent liquids. We use words like solvent and flush to describe having funds but, on the other hand, it can disappear rather quickly.The Taurus-Scorpio axis governs wealth and commodities exchange and soon Pluto opposes US Venus. No wonder the issue is surfacing in such a grand manner. Pluto is also in the US Venusian second house natally, and added to that are the moon's nodes in the second and eighth. May I repeat, no wonder.
Solutio (Latin: solutio; solvere = to loosen, to solve), the elemental water operation, to turn a solid into a liquid.
Taurus is "what's mine" and Scorpio is "what's ours." The Scorpio ruler, Pluto, governs fair exchange, the driver of the market. Satisfaction guaranteed. When one considers the liquid nature of money and it's tendency to evaporate, how can anyone possess it really? More substantive resources can be owned, but the integrated picture of wealth with Pluto in Capricorn is about to receive a lot of attention, along with the routes to satisfaction of desire. The solid of Taurus turns into the liquid of Scorpio and who ends up with what can never be determined permanently. And what exactly is valuable is a large part of the question. Banked up assets can mean 700 billion things.
So what is this terror around money? Everyone is responsible for the fix we're in, and what's so terrible about that? That means people can fix it themselves. Easy money, something for nothing, buy now, pay later, and no leash on human greed. Might I repeat, no wonder.
Pluto travels to the essence in Capricorn seeking recognition of what material wealth is, especially when the trine to Uranus in Taurus comes. Deficit is part of the road to increase. Some of the rich become poor, some poor become rich, and some stay content with what they have. As always. The economic situation now didn't come about because of Reaganomics, free-market trade practices, conservative philosophy, a greedy few, or anything like that. It goes all the way back in American history. Perhaps in human history. Pluto in the 2nd with the south node was the set-up influencing the US to desire the biggest and the most of everything accompanying an obsession with money and business.
Pluto and Venus delve deeply into value systems. Loss and gain are learned. The ability to lose and gain with ease is the treasure, along with knowing that what's truly yours and valuable is yours to keep. Not easy for a 2nd house south node. If one doesn't relinquish, one can lose everything eventually. Some prefer that so they can start over. It can work in 700 billion ways.
When Pluto was in Cancer square Uranus in Aries, the Depression transformed the economic system and the government bailed out the impoverished people. Currently it's the reverse as the people now bail out the ruling class. There are advantages to this bailout in the long run. Power comes with it whether or not it's apparent yet. Government spending will be cut and taxes raised but along with this is a possible decrease in military funding as progressed Mars goes retrograde and defense becomes the aim. A strict tightening of spending in personal and social realms is inevitable and shared resources are destined to take on a new meaning. Self reliance and responsibility are the gifts of Pluto in Capricorn, along with a healthy understanding of fair exchange. Banking on your own assets is the most fruitful. There's no way of knowing how far the system needs to slide, but correction always happens. Also the conditions that lead to failure return, no matter what the good and the bad do. And the correction starts as soon as the failure starts. They happen together.
Sharing resources includes responsibility especially in Capricorn. Learning to wait for what one wants to possess is the deeper solution and in the end one treasures it more. "I admit I did overreach when I bought my last house," says the American casually, a little sheepishly.
There is much potential in this moment. During the Depression people did what they were told in semi-consciousness. But now, people are experiencing, observing, talking amongst themselves, learning, understanding, and participating. All kinds of people. A remarkable opportunity to exert influence, even if it takes time and hardship to manifest. It indicates a collective readiness to use the brain just one tiny bit and keep the hand out of the pocketbook every time insecurity strikes, regardless of Venus in Cancer. Already you can see that as pecking replaces shopping.
Every venture starts with a belief in success. Difficult times are expected. If you believe in failure then why bother? The fact is, we're here and we have to bother. There's never a guarantee as many of our investors are discovering right now. But anyone with a millimeter of intelligence knows that enthusiasm for a good outcome is an essential prelude to creating one.
So you know what? Take my 700 billion. It's just money. And please spend it wisely.
