From astrologer Paul Six(click on Journal to see the original):
As people become selfish and self-centered out of fear that they are losing what they have, Saturn’s two and one-half year passage through the Libra sky restores the principle of fairness in our everyday lives. The purpose of Saturn’s work in this sign of the zodiac is to balance out the polarities, so that all that is disproportionate is adjusted and equilibrium is restored.
When the Saturn principle moves into the Libra sky, an intensified pressure is felt by members of society to participate in life according to the agreed upon rules of the game. Saturn in Libra motivates people to succeed in partnerships and in society in general by playing fair and square, by showing others the respect one would like to receive (the ‘Golden Rule’) and by ending up with lots of love in life.
Saturn enters the Libra sky on October 29, 2009-the eightieth anniversary of the stock market crash of 1929 in the United States, the day when the market lost 14 billion dollars.
