you forecast when things are going to turn around for my husband professionally?
He experienced a financial reversal July 1, 2000, and things have not
yet turned around for him...help! Is there ANY good news on the horizon?
His birthdate is February 25, 1954, at 12:55 am in New York City.
look at your husband's chart reveals a complex set of circumstances. Yes,
there is hope. But there's no quick fix. Turning your husband's finances
around is going to take time, determination, self-examination and hard
by looking at how money issues are expressed in your husband's birth chart.
The Second House is the home of personal finance and the sector of the
chart that illuminates issues of self-worth and self-esteem. He has

a glitch. Your husband also has Chiron in his Second House conjunct his
North Node. This is a difficult combo. The North Node is what we are reaching
toward—what we haven't quite learned or accomplished. Part of your husband's
soul work is learning to value himself. Chiron's position points toward
some early fundamental wounding to his pride, confidence and self-respect.
This Chiron-North Node bundle could manifest as a deep need for financial
success as a way of assuaging a feeling of low self-esteem.
has Cancer on the cusp of his Eighth House. The Eighth House is also connected
to finances. It's traditionally called the house of "other people's
money," and indicates inheritance, shared assets, investments and
financial partnerships with others. Uranus is in his Eighth House, opposed
that North Node-Chiron conjunction. Uranus is unstable, impulsive and
likes being free and unfettered. It's a wild card, and Uranus' position
in your husband's birth chart could create the tendency to act out financially
in an effort to express his maverick longings. Or, he may be in business
with fiercely independent people who just won't play by the rules.
On July 1,
2000, the day your husband experienced a financial reversal, there was
a solar eclipse in Cancer, in his Eighth House. During a solar eclipse,
the Moon overshadows the Sun, and the unconscious dominates the rational.
Eclipses reveal what was previously hidden, which means unconscious intent
becomes visible during these events.
I don't know
what your husband does professionally, but on that day the eclipse unveiled
what has and does motivate his financial decisions. Cancer is a complex
sign. We tend to think of it as nurturing and cautious. But its shadow
fixates on issues of safety and security, and often manifests as the fear
of never having enough. On that day, he may have risked too much, or been
afraid to let go.
of that eclipse was exacerbated by other factors. While the eclipse was
occurring, transiting Saturn, in Taurus, was opposing your husband's
natal Moon in Scorpio. Transiting Saturn is currently in your husband's Sixth
House of employment. His natal Moon is in the Twelfth House, home of the
unconscious. Amplifying an already intense set of circumstances, Saturn
rules his Second House and the Moon rules his Eighth House. Financial
upset of some kind was inevitable.
essentially about limits and structure. If your husband's finances were
built on shaky ground, this configuration could easily cause his fortune
to crumble. If he's been making decisions based on unconscious fear, Saturn
would also bring this to light, especially during the eclipse.
more. Two weeks later on July 16, a lunar eclipse occurred in your husband's
Second House on his North Node and Chiron as Mars simultaneously conjuncted
his Uranus. Saturn was also still opposing his Moon. There was clearly
no avoiding the impact of these two eclipses.
not all. Transiting Pluto is also affecting your husband's chart. It's
squaring his Venus. Venus, too, shares a strong connection to finances.

hits a planet three times over the course of almost two years. The first
time Pluto squared your husband's Venus was January through June of this
year. During the first phase of a Pluto transit, the rug seems to come
out from under us. Ultimately, Pluto is reaching for greater authenticity.
As part of this process, we often experience Pluto's force in the form
of externalized events aimed at stripping away what is useless.
time Pluto squares his Venus is October 31–December 23. If we've been
paying attention, the second Pluto transit isn't as rough. In fact, it
becomes a phase of redefinition, particularly if we participate in the
process, and refine our choices on the basis of ultimate value rather
than expedient need.

another couple of years. But there is hope.

from March 23–April 11, 2001. Saturn doesn't only demolish. It also renovates.
Your husband can use these transits beneficially, but he must be willing
to examine his unconscious emotional patterns. Saturn can be a stern taskmaster.
But when we volunteer for growth, Saturn becomes a wise mentor. He can
use these times to rebuild. But these efforts need to be based on new
understanding rather than old habits.

equally important for him to find healthy ways of managing his tension.
Therapy is always a good choice when we're experiencing Pluto or Saturn
transits. It provides a safe place for delving into unconscious motives.
