The results for the ‘live’ horary question featured on my Facebook page are now in. The chart is shown again here.
Background: The client is a salesperson for the Australian branch of an overseas company. The client had been summoned to a meeting on Wednesday morning May 8 and told that all the owners of the meeting will be there and that there are changes to be announced, but the nature of these changes have not been revealed. The company has been doing moderately well in recent months but not as well as the owners want.
1. What are the changes that the management is going to announce and;2. How will these changes affect my position within the company?
There were various interpretations offered by a number of people on the Facebook page. The client has now reported back and the results are outlined below.
Sales manager reassigned
The most important outcome of the meeting was that the querent’s sales manager had been assigned to a territory in a different state. This was big news for the querent and a bit of a shock – the querent had formed a close relationship with the sales manager who had been responsible for the querent’s introduction into the company and subsequent support.
Also the sales manager’s boss was replaced with someone new, and some departments were amalgamated.
I think that together these changes reflect Uranus on the Midheaven.
Commit or leave
At the meeting the sales agents were warned that those who were working on a part time basis should consider working full time or find a job elsewhere. And those whose sales figures were low were advised to make greater efforts to improve results or seek employment elsewhere.
No-one was sacked but clear warnings were given.
I think that these challenges presented by management to the querent were represented by Mercury’s opposition to Saturn.
Face your fears
Sales agents were also encouraged to confront their fears or reservations about selling product and making a full commitment to the company. The company offered to support them in this process.
I think that these challenges were reflected by Mercury’s opposition to Saturn.
The opposition itself represents a challenge or confrontation. Mercury represents the querent. Saturn represents fears and reservations.
Some reduction in commission
The commission offered to the querent on a particular product range was reduced. However to balance this out this line of product was also made easier to sell. It is difficult to say whether this is a plus or minus for the querent.
However the unexpected surprise was that the querent, who had lost a valuable pair of sunglasses some months previously, was presented with the sunglasses. They had been sitting on a shelf and forgotten. The querent was delighted with their return.
Sunglasses are of course ruled by Saturn, the planet which rules darkness and the reduction of light – its rulership of Aquarius, the sign opposite Leo which is ruled by the Sun which represents sunlight, reinforces its meaning.
While the return of a pair of sunglasses was not part of the question it is so precise and unexpected that it validates this horary chart. As they say in the old text books: This chart is ‘radical’.
What about the Moon squaring Jupiter on the Ascendant?
The management team had traveled 1600 kms to be at the meeting. While technically they came from the same country the distance is great enough to be considered distant, therefore qualifying as 9th house.
The Moon represents both the querent’s emotions and the course of events.
Jupiter in Gemini (in its detriment) on the Ascendant promises a lot but delivers little.
Jupiter is the ruler of the 10th from the 10th house and therefore represents its rulers (management). Jupiter is in a double-bodied sign, and there is more than one boss. Gemini is in the sign of the twins and the 2 bosses who came to the meeting were siblings – not twins but the duality of the symbolism is obvious.
Resulting position within the company
While the client was not sacked and was made welcome to remain with the company the client was ‘on notice’ to improve sales results or seek alternative employment.
Clearly this chart is valid for the question and answered the question accurately.
