Yesterday in History XIII

Diamond Sūtra (May 11, 868 AD)

On this day in 868: The Diamond Sutra, the oldest known dated book, is printed in China.

Hmm. Not the oldest book, just the oldest block printed book with a known date of publishing.

Okay. I wasn’t sure what I would get with this chart, so I allowed the timing to be randomized. The three inconjuncts tell their own stories.

Venus Inconjunct Saturn (definitely)

You need and want love, but you may not be able to get it easily. You may feel that your parents, teachers or other persons in authority make demands on you that you must fulfill before they will give you any love and support. If that is true, it is unfortunate, because you deserve respect and love as much as anyone. Although everyone must fulfill certain social demands, this should not be the condition for being loved. If this demand is carried to an extreme in your case, you will become cold-hearted and unable to love others even when you want to. You may also feel that you cannot indulge yourself in any pleasure or even love. When you are older, you may feel that duty and ambition must come before love and human relationships. Unfortunately, if you follow that path, you will become very lonely, and when you realize that you belong to no one and nothing, you will go through a spiritual crisis.

Jupiter Inconjunct Midheaven (perhaps)

The problem with this aspect is to find a balance between, on the one hand, expressing yourself creatively, perhaps artistically, and having a good time and, on the other hand, getting ahead in life, learning the ways of the world and finding an acceptable role in society. You know you will have to make sacrifices in order to accomplish anything of value.

Pluto Inconjunct Ascendant (perhaps)

This can be an indication that through experiences with others, you will be forced to undergo many significant changes in life. At times the crises may be quite unpleasant, but for the most part the results will be very positive, although for some people, they may be less constructive.
