Rogers’ Outage (July 8, 2022)
You may or may not have noticed my absence yesterday. We had no internet, no TV and no mobile phone service. In other words, I was completely cut off from the rest of the world. Fortunately, Susan’s mobile provider is Virgin, so we still had one way of contacting others. But that was limited to her data usage.
One of the advantages to being an astrologer is the ability to look behind the scenes and see what is really going on. When the internet usage dropped off totally @ 4:30 am ET, there was one inconjunct:
Pluto Inconjunct Ascendant
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. But you must be very careful about the kind of people you get involved with. Choose your friends with great care and try to find people who have a healthy outlook on life and who seem reasonably well balanced. People who are driven to extreme behavior or who act compulsively, as if they could not plan anything in advance, are not very good for you. They will get you into difficult situations that you do not need.
(There, is that clear? Someone had brought the whole system down.)
It was about 8 am today when my mobile phone started working again, and it was about 1 pm that the internet came back online. I don’t like feeling that vulnerable.
