Yes, October 29th marked the 79th anniversary of the Great Depression!
And what better way to mark it? Than with an 8th house profection year, yes that’s right- the profection year of things that are buried under the ground, other people’s money and TAXES. Yes, the 8th house, the ‘idle’ place, the place of death.
What ascendant would mark the occasion? We don’t know. If I was banking on the eve of October 29th when the stock market closed for the day, 5pm would grant a Taurean rising sign, putting none other than the king of time and death natally in the 8th, but also marking the birthday in Sagittarius, further amplifying his position at the 26th degree with a Pluto conjunction of all things.
The birthday today, especially marks the occasion of a Jupiter-ruled year, with Saturn natally in Sagittarius, and Jupiter transitting through a Saturn-ruled sign, in aversion to Saturn! How saturnian! The Mercury return and Mars return are extra bonuses in this chart – Mercury signifying trade and legal matters, and Mars representing that which we are cut off from, the act of being severed, a change. Well played planets. Happy Birthday Great Depression. Let’s hope in another 79 years, you have passed your prime.
