So far as Saturn in Scorpio effects goes, the Ashley Madison hacks are textbook. The release of incriminating data and subsequent exposure of dishonesty? Classic. Saturn is structure, marriage, and honesty. Scorpio is raw revelation and exposure. It’s not good astrological energy to be trying to hide anything.
So what is the Astrology of the Ashley Madison hacks?
Well, they are like the last big swipe of Saturn in Scorpio’s Godzilla-like scaly tail.
Think about it.
It’s not just that hundreds of thousands of would-be or actual adulterers have had their private data breached.
The intrusion of what is (leaving aside discussions of morality/monogamy for a moment) personal material is a massively Saturn-Scorpio theme. But it’s also about the debate these Ashley Madison hacks have provoked.
The media is all over it, naturally, with interactive hot-spot maps of where the cheaters live in YOUR city. The subject of fidelity/infidelity is being raised and hotly dialogued by everyone from Christians to polygamists.
Meanwhile, politicians and economy wonks are probably relieved that the news flow has moved away from the stock market for a bit. The Saturn in Scorpio effects will out-last this little scandal, and no doubt have implications for data and the online activities of would-be cheaters.
So thank you Saturn in Scorpio, it’s been fab – what your thoughts on this latest Scorping?
