Universal Children’s Day – the horoscope


I don’t know about the rest of the world, but in Holland much attention has been given the last weeks to the sorry lot of some of the world’s most vulnerable citizens. I’m talking of course, about children. Children are a cheap source of labour in the third world – and manufacturers are all to willing to profit from the inability of those living in the first world to stop and think about what they are buying. Let’s be honest here. If something is dirt cheap – someone somewhere has been paid next to nothing for producing it. Universal Children’s Day has been celebrated on November 20th since 1959, which is when the United Nations General Assembly upgraded the Declaration of the Rights of the Child from five stipulations to ten. The original declaration, was signed on 23 February 1923. Sad to say – even the five original points – have proven impossible to implement in much of the third world. Many children are still unable to attend school, go hungry, and are abused. The Horoscope for Universal Children’s Day.


This horoscope just yells out “GOOD INTENTIONS”. The fact that this is a mid-day chart, does nothing to alter the Cancer Moon – the Moon is in Cancer the whole day. What a wonderful caring, motherly, nurturing, child oriented placement for the Moon. The only problem with the Moon in Cancer – is that it strengthens the changeablility of the planet. Translated to an organisation – we could conclude that the amount of media coverage the organisation receives, the amount of attention the general public has for the problems of the child, fluctuate. Now lots of attention – now none at all. Saturn – the organisation itself – is well placed in Capricorn and in trine with Pluto. This suggests devotion to the cause by people in high places. Saturn trine Pluto works tirelessly toward a goal. Pluto in Virgo shows a doggedness in rooting out the evils of child labour and the ability to transform it. Jupiter in Sagittarius suggests laws that transcend borders – but also inequalities that are potentially rooted everywhere (i.e. on the shelves in our local store). However, Jupiter in Sagittarius has the law on its side. It highlights the real issue,our moral codes, the right philosophy which reflects back to all that is noble and good in the human race.  Mercury is also in Sagittarius but retrograde – which might suggest that it will take time to get this message accross. It is fifty years ago since Universal Children’s day was called into being – and we still have a way to go – but hey Mars is in Scorpio as is the Sun. One word for this could be. Committment. This is good news…But fixed signs are slow moving…humanity in this area resembles a snail.

So now the good news. The more conscious we in the first world become, the quicker the lives of children in the third world will improve. Consumers have power. The progressed Sun in the horoscope for Universal Children’s Day is now in Capricorn and Pluto in transit is also in this sign. Pluto will soon conjunct radix Saturn and trine radix Pluto. The hunt for big names in the child exploitation racket will reach a peak. The thought of being named and shamed will urge big companies to look at what is happening on the lower rungs of the production ladder. Change is in the air.  Individuals too are realising they have a choice and a role to play. This is incredibly empowering. We must strive to be part of the solution instead of being part of the problem. Happy Children’s Day!!
