The Second House versus Eighth House opposition may bring a major financial battle. Austerity is around the corner, and it can stay there. With the Moon conjunct Saturn, there may be emotional support for old economic structures and an appeal to a way of spending as in the-good-old-days. However, the Sun, Mars, Pallas, and Venus in opposition may indicate that old structures have to come down. Pluto has been sextile Saturn, and the hidden powers-that-be have been supporting the old ways. However, with Pluto trine the gang in Taurus and the Virgo Ascendant, there may be a willingness to play both sides of the street. Jupiter on the Midheaven could be a marker that it is time for economic growth, and austerity measures no long work. Uranus quincunx Saturn may be ready to start a revolution. Mercury approaching a conjunction with Eris might be preparing for a new propaganda campaign. Vesta has just joined Ceres in Cancer, and with a trine to Saturn and sextiles to the Taurus bodies, both may be facing appeals from the different sides of the argument.
