Saturn rx going through the 8th house has been excruciating lesson time. It is bad enough in direct motion. I earn most of my income from other’s money (the 8th is the turned 2nd house to the 7th)… and having Saturn running through this house seems appropriate that the economy is starting to dent my income from others.
This last Christmas season, I had sold 4 puppies to a friend that owns a pet store. I should have made a point of getting paid prior to the rx on the 31st of December. But, it is a friend, right? Here we are in March and I am still to be fully paid. I have been determined to get paid one way or another, so I have done some bartering… and picked up stuff I really didn’t need. The budget was completely blown so I put off some of the bills due… and thought I had a bright idea. Instead of paying the trash collection (how 8th house is that?) We made an agreement I could dump trash in his dumpster as partial payment. His wife is not thrilled with the arrangement, so I am told to dump at night after the store is closed.
Darkness falls and I grab my Scorpio Moon son and we start our adventure. Hoping the neighbors aren’t watching, we stuff my VW Bug with all the trash from the trash cans. I check all the lights and switches on the car, I can’t afford to be pulled over….. I have a bench warrant out for my arrest since my ex didn’t pay the insurance he said he would and have been pulled over 3 times in a week. I am waiting on my tax return (which by the way was delayed, thanks Saturn in 8th) to pay off all the court cost that have incurred. Just right here lets look at that…. I am a criminal, over insurance, and waiting on taxes that are delayed… all 8th house issues.
We pull in front of the dumpster and the security guard from another store shines his headlights on us. So, we just sit chilled in the car waiting for him to leave. I am doing nothing illegal as I was given permission. He won’t leave!! So, I pull out of the spot and drive around the back of the building…. lights still off, I sneak up to the back of the dumpster. My son and I get half the trash out and in the dumpster. Not a pleasant task, as my friend had a tropical fish order that day and you could smell the moralities ( more 8th house stuff!) All of a sudden the security guard shows up again and says he is calling the police. I look at my kid, he looks at me and we get in the car. If the police come, they will ask for my license and I go to jail over the outstanding fees. Now remember, I am a Capricorn, I don’t break rules! So, we jump in the car and I back out in reverse and head for the exit. We get on the highway…. puttering along, it is an old car, and right after a backfire (hey that is 8th too) my son looks at me and says, “this is no San Andreas Grand Theft Auto”…(I could just kill him, that would stay in the 8th house theme of the night) we head to a convenience store a few blocks away. We go in and grab stuff for dinner and to calm down. Getting back into the car, we both start sniffing the air and eyeballing each other suspiciously…. then click I figure out the 3 bags left in the backseat are the ones with the cat litter, the rabbit’s cage changing, and the doggie do from cleaning the backyard… How much more 8th house are we going to get? Rolling down the windows, we see 2 police cars headed to the dumpster and all I can think is get me the next 6 blocks to my house. Noticing some dumpsters across the street I say, “we can get rid of these last 3 over there.” My son is horrified… “Mom, that would be stealing”…(Saturn is going through his 9th… principals… gah, eyeroll) He then turns to me and says, “do I have to wear my seat belt?” “Nah, we are outlaws already, live it up and live dangerously” So back at home the trash needs to be put back in the cans. We get in and I decide to blog about the night… but the internet is off. I have wireless and “borrow” my neighbors bandwith (okay 8th house stealing other’s resources) and they apparently hadn’t paid their bill.
Did I indeed learn a lesson from all of this, yeah I did. I need to be sure that from here on out that all of my income and resources are not dependent on others. And my friend with the pet store…. another Capricorn… no more business with friends especially Capricorn ones. Oh! and if I decide on a life of crime, I have a great get away partner in the family.
