"Right. It's a previously infertile woman who has been given a uterus from an organ donation, and then from that was able to give birth that in itself super exciting. However, it has these little added bonuses of fun and interest, right? The uterus came from a woman who had been who was had a stroke. And so she was deceased when she donated the organ, it wasn't like I'm done with my uterus. Here you may have it and use it to birth many children. It was she wasn't organ donor. And so it was one of the organs harvested after she'd had her stroke, similar to kidneys and other organs that any organ donor is going to give which is one just opens up a whole new world of potential donors for this organ, but. I think I'm jumping ahead a little bit. Because it's also the first time it has ever been done ever with a person who was born in fertile with this specific syndrome called Mark AH syndrome, which is a string of foreign different names that I don't remember off the top of my head. I didn't write them down. But the marquee h syndrome, essentially is it's an affliction that the embryo gets. And it doesn't form one of the ducts that goes on to form the birth canal. So it's a genetic condition that happens to many many people, and they don't end up forming the uterus with they do end up forming is their ovaries and much of the rest of their body completely normally so she's been infertile her whole life, but a deceased donors universe was transplanted into her. And even though she never had a birth canal. But she did have ovaries she was able to undergo IV about seven months after the transplant surgery. Once they deemed everything was safe. And then she was basically birthing a baby that was one of her own eggs, which is just incredible in fast, extreme, right? And it just, you know, one human station period later, she had a six pound baby via c section so awesome. And the first time. Ceased donor uterus has produced a successful birth in Latin America and the first time ever worldwide person with Mark H syndrome has used a donated university. Give birth super exciting. Yeah. It's a fantastic story. Because really this is this is just opening up the picking poll aspect of a human body. Once we're done with it. The that somebody else could. Prolong their life or or bring new life onto the planet. And what and what a good argument also for gene editing, and it would be. If we could foretell that this was going to be a problem, and and prevent it. But yeah, what fantastic story. Yeah. I looked up a little bit of stats to the CDC says in the US alone over seven Willie over seven million women have used infertility serve services. So this could potentially be one of the ways to make a little over seven million women in the US find a way to give birth on their own with their own body..

"I just had graduate students and undergraduate students go out and collect dirt samples from a variety of different place. And then we brought the dirt temples fact to the lab, and we seleted Phages from them. And then what we did was we took this collection of Phages. And we started screaming extracts that we made from different streptomycetes strains to see if they had anything in them that could inhibit faith replication, and what we found was that a lot of streptomycetes strains, actually produce some kind of compound that protects them from Phages. So you've taken small molecules have been secreted by streptomycetes, and then tested them against the Phages and out of the ones that that did work was there any kind of patent that, you know, just absolutely there was so what we discovered was that the active compound that we were discovering are a class of Cules known as DNA in Turkey leaders. And so these molecules actually bind to DNA and prevent it from being transcribed or translated. So prevent the genes from being express. And so Streptomyces are producing these molecules that seem to be preferentially binding to the DNA at the concentrations. They're produced inside the cell, and and they prevent the DNA from being able to carry out any of the functions that are required for the face to survive. But one really interesting thing actually is that these Danny intercalated molecules they actually are fantastic anti-cancer agents and people actually back in the nineteen sixties. They used phase replication any coli as a way to screen for anti-tumor agents, and they discovered a lot of commonly used chemo therapeutics in this manner. But at the time nobody thought to really think about why are streptomycetes producing anti-cancer agent. So now that you've shown these molecules are part of the Fayed defense system. Does that provide? Some some of -tunities for using these chemicals. There's a lot of interest in trying to find new active molecules and people are starting to do a lot of screening of different secondary metabolites that are produced by bacteria, and I think this gives us a new way of finding new anti-tumor agents. And now, you have a whole new area of bacterial defense, which if you if you continue looking at these systems, you could find even mole molecules and chemicals, which could be medically useful. Yes. So along with the anti-cancer drugs, of course, these could be great to be used as antiviral agents in humans as well for therapeutics, and what's your pestle nextstep in exploring this? So we are currently exploring the production of other types of small molecules. I'm really interested in discovering the diversity of molecules that actually provide anti phased for suspense. So that's one area of research. And we are also interested in branching out into other bacteria. So how commonly are these anti phased compounds produced and how many different species of bacteria produce them that was coward Maxwell. From the university of Toronto Canada.

Like a needle either a close Mars Neptune conjunction or even like Mars Neptune being in the same sign and therefore co present and kinda rubbing off on each other in that same place.

An even just emphasis even just energetically like Mars is usually like quick sudden things even when it's negative. It's like something that happens fast and happens suddenly or unexpectedly, and that's what's so such an anomaly about the retrograde period is just like sitting on some part of your chart for a very long time.

"And this is basically the one year it's been one year. Now that Saturn has been transiting through your twelfth house, which can be. More of an isolated transit. Sometimes the toll house often has to do with places of isolation which can sometimes indicate a period in which you or either feeling a little bit more retiring or you're just working with things that are a little bit more isolated like traditionally that's been things like like prisons, or hospitals hospitals in places like that. But it can also indicate things like libraries or other sort of isolated places where you're sort of off on your own. The twelfth though, more broadly also has to do with endings since it's the last of the twelve houses before planets move into the first house and sort of start the cycle over again in emerge into the first house in some ways. So sometimes a planet a meter outer planet transit, especially like that can have to do with letting go of certain things and letting go of parts of your life that have sort of run their course or sometimes relationships that have run. Their course when planets that moved through that sign so when. Your homework assignments might be to think about what that transit has been about for you over the course of the past twelve months and ways in which it's sort of become more relevant in your life or ways in which some things have kind of run. Their course to the extent that maybe it's time to let go or move on from those things compared to whatever you were doing previously yen. I just wanna toss out one more on potential manifestation, which is often times when Saturn transits the twelve people kind of get kind of weird feelings subconsciously, and they so it sometimes time to work on psychological things. And if you're not really very conscious of that, you can kind of feel like a little off for fuel a little weirder than usual. But not know why. And so that that could be one way that some people are experiencing it as well as kind of like working on kind of their their mind, so to speak the twelve can also be like the past because it was the sign that was rising before you were born or in the our two before your Bornes south. Uh-huh. Asked to do with that which came before. And so sometimes twelve house transits can have to do with looking back and reflecting on the past which is sort of almost doubled from a archetypal or symbolic standpoint. With when we're talking about Saturn is the planet that sort of rules or symbolizes time going through that and can certainly represented period like looking back and reflecting on lessons from the past and the ramifications that the past has had for the present as well as how you might change things or alter things in seeing in looking back and reflecting on the past and changing what you're doing for the future to sort of do it differently. If you had a second chance. Let's see any other house. I mean, twelve is also enemies. Like, literally we've mentioned that in a lot of the other ones. So should mention it here. Just in the sake of completeness that sometimes the twelfth house can literally manifest as those whose intentions sometimes run at cross purposes to your own and sometimes with a Saturn transit can indicate especially for day charts surmountable difficulties of having to wrestle with the the general topic of just like people, you don't get along with in your life. That would probably be the best keyword, sing enemies. Little stark enemies like evildoers. But to say those that you don't get along with because the eleven the contrast is the eleventh, which is basically people you do get along with. Yeah. More or less, sir. But with a long-term Saturn over the course of because it's not just a quick transit. It's been happening for year. It started last December..

"More, energy or effort towards your finances. And that could be literally like trying to make a bunch of money before the year ends. It can also be a time where money is more stressful. There's more tensions around money. I'm trying to think of other ways that that can manifest is. Usually just either putting a lot more energy towards that area of your life or difficulties with that area. Yes. Sometimes Mars transiting a house like the second can bring additional anxieties involving money or possessions and some. Sometimes it can bring up actual the energy surrounding that. If it's it can kind of overflow in sometimes resulted things like actual tensions or strife or conflicts, surrounding financial matters or possessions. So in some instance, that instances that might be necessary might be necessary to have some sort of conflict that involves your financial matters. If you know, there's something that's that's going wrong. That needs to be addressed needs to be addressed in sort of a head on way. But you just want to be careful not to go overboard or not to go too far in terms of that transit because sometimes it can backfire or it can have downsides. If you internalize the energy in the way, that's not necessarily healthy. Like, sometimes Mars transit another manifestation, it might be relevant years. Sometimes Mars does things too quickly or excessively so can be like spending excessively spending more than you should maybe during the holiday season or something like definitely yet that be. Relevant december. Sure. So yeah. Just try to pay attention to that that transits going to be happening. Most of the month Mars does link up with Neptune around the early to middle part of the month and Pisces right around December seventh near the Newman. Okay. Run December seventh so sometimes that can bring a lack of clarity. Obviously, that's a long-term decade-long transit of Neptune going through second house of finances, which can sometimes bring a certain level of obscurity or lack of clarity to that area and Mars hitting that is kind of weird because it might mean that there's something about the the spending of money or the focus on money this month when it hits Neptune that could become excessive, but it might not be clear to you. How that's the case. Or y that why that's the case to imports a level of mysterious nece into the picture. Yeah. Definitely end up to going through your second as a longer term transit kennels, AVI. Kind of you accidentally drifting into ways of making money, but it not being. Clear whether that's like a good idea or not yet. Yeah. Yes. So let's probably something we'll have to come back to I guess Tunis stationing right now, actually November. Right. So even that's getting sort of amplified at this time. Right. So we'll have to come back to that. That's going to be a transit. I'm sure that we're going to discuss more in the future, but that's pretty much the Mars transit for this month. So once we get into the third week of the month, we run into the sun completes its passage through such terrorists. And it moves into Capricorn on the twenty first. So it moves out of your eleventh house of friends and groups and moves into your twelfth house of solitudes, it's a little bit more retiring of a of a transit that you always have around the same time each year starting around December twenty first and then the very next day. We have our second Lou nation of the month, which is a full moon that takes place in cancer in cancer is your sixth house of work and health. Yeah. So when the sun goes. Into Capra corn. It's always an interesting switch from the to the twelfth house focused because the eleventh is so social, and that's where the sun is for most of December. So it's in your social area. And then it switches to the house of solitude near the end. So you may be wanting to spend more time alone towards the end of the month in more more, contempt contemporary live and so forth and then the full moon right after that ingress is in your sixth house of work and health. So there may be a temporary culmination of sorts with regard to either a job that you're doing or if you employ other people there could be some sort of culmination ending surrounding a subordinate an employee there. Also other six house topics Cambio your health routines..

"But it's just kind of a sudden shift of especially the feel of the energy as well as the area expressed in and so Martin Pisces is much more indirect watery sign, and then it suddenly goes into Aries, which Mars rules and much more direct and forceful on kind forthright. And so that energy switches on New Year's Eve, and it also switches to your fourth house of. Home and family. And so they'll there may be kind of like, a a sudden shift on New Year's Eve of where you're of feeling like putting your energy all of a sudden, and that will go on through January. Yes. So there's probably gonna be a shift towards more energy being put towards the area of home and family may be more work done in your living situation or with respect to your house in general for some people. This can indicate greater anxiety or tension surrounding the living situation that begins with that transit by sort of carries through it for different reasons or sometimes conflicts can come up at home sometimes within that context. Whatever it is it something that just sort of starting on New Year's Eve. So it's not maybe hugely important to pay attention to. But definitely we can see some of the shifts or the shifts of the energy taking place somewhat starkly right around New Year's Eve in Newsday. Definitely. And then the other one that shifts on New Year's day is. As the sun, Saturn conjunction goes exact right on New Year's day. And while that's right into January, not technically December. We thought we'd mentioned it since it's the tail end of December basically, and so the sunset in conjunction going exact on your day is pretty striking in terms of, you know, New Year's day as often day of cleaning up and starting New Year's resolutions and things like that. And so people are usually kinda getting back to work or kind of trying to clean things up in whatever areas that day, but this will feel even more so than usual, and it'll be kind of like an energy of really getting back to work, and in particular, it's in your first house of self. And so you could have an extra spurt of like, I'm going to work on my body. I'm going to go to the gym this year because the first house one of the topics is the body, but also just a general sense of like your overall life like getting serious about what you're doing whatever you're focused on like self improvement. And this is almost sort of the one year anniversary. It's been a year. Now that Saturn has been transiting through cap. Or corn? Because it went into that sign originally in December of two thousand seventeen so it's been one year. And this will be the second time in that cycle that the sun has conjoined Saturn's. It's kind of an important turning point to reflect on what that transit has been about for you. Especially those of you, it's especially important for those of you. With Capra corn rising or were Capra corn is a dominant sign in your chart just because that represents the transit of Saturn through that sign over a two or three year period, and the increasing sense of importance sometimes it can be more of a own say depressive influence because it can be depressive in like, a psychological context. But sometimes it just slows things down or makes things more serious for a period of time. So that it's one of those times in the life were clearly things are a little bit more, momentous and everything means a little bit more than it does at other times in your life hersher, and what it often means to. Is that there's a lot more on your shoulders or you feel that there is like a there's a lot more work on your plate. You're often requested to or required to step into new responsibilities. That are may be heavier than you're used to or you're making in the middle of making major life changes. And so you can feel some exacerbate of that around New Year's day this year in particular, right? And so for those Capricorn rising that of course, is primarily going to relate to the first house having to do with either your physical body and appearance or things having to do with your character in your spirit than general, and some changes and restructuring that's taking place in that area of your life over this two or three year period, but that conjunction with the sun and Saturn on New Year's day is kind of a reminder, and it's kind of setting.
"december 2018" Discussed on The Astrology Podcast
"But it can make things a little bit more nebulous when it's transiting your eighth house involving your partners resources being either nebulous or something just unclear about that or financial deals like you said, you know, if you're needing to buy or sell something, I'm just trying to be as clear as you possibly can around the terms definitely or it's I think that is good advice. So the pretty much brings us to the end of the month where the very last transit. I mean, do we talk about both nations? Oh, no. We skipped. Yeah. Yeah. So there's gonna be a cancer full moon, which is in your twelfth house. That happens what around the twenty second or so twenty right? Okay. So December twenty first so there's a full moon, which the temporary culmination in your twelve house, which has to do with both solitude. So the time that you spend on your own with no one else around can also have to do with quote enemies. So people who don't have your best interests at heart. And so it's also ties in with your get to work theme when the sun goes in the cap or corn and into their sixth house, which is the place of work at the same time like the next day of full moon in a sort of culmination of events taking place in the twelfth house of solitudes that may be part of a general shift towards moving from a more social time to being a little bit more reclusive or a little bit more focused on like work in that which you need to to do to. To sort of get by in advance yourself. Definitely. Yeah. I would agree with that. And usually win. There are things going on in both sixth and twelfth house, which we'll talk about more incoming times because that's where the eclipses are happening for you for Lia rising. They're going to be a series of eclipses and 'Capricorno cancer. So you're six house of work in health and the twelfth house of solitude, I usually see need to balance usually people are working harder than usual. But then they also need to kind of figure out what the balances of taking time off and resting and things like that. And a lot of people asked us last month while we didn't focus on the nodes shifting into cancer and Capra corn and part of the reason for that is that it's not really until the nodes represent the where the path of the sun crosses the path of the moon. And when that happens there can be clips is so it's actually in January. We're gonna start getting Smith clips is in Capra corn for the first time. And that's going to be the first of a series of capital of eclipse between Capra Cornyn cancer in your sixth and twelve house that occur over the course of the next couple of years. So that's the point in which that nodal shift into those two signs is going to start to become much more relevant as part of that ongoing series of eclipse as between the six and twelve who having to do with work and health and having to do with other twelfth house topics which consum- times be things like seclusion on ice elation going it alone. Other times it can have to do with people in your life. That work at cross purposes to you or the you might classify as sort of an enemy or somebody works against you in some way, and the need to somehow find a constructive way to deal with people like that in your life, and some of the things that you'll so to be going through in terms of dealing with that constructively over the course of the next couple of years. Yes. So we'll be talking about that more in future months. Yeah. But I guess we'll we'll leave that for January. All right. The only other thing. So we have the Mars transit at the very end of the month. And then we have the Saturn question. Should we touch on the second question? I or or after. You can do Mars. I okay. So on the very last day of the year. It looks like Mars completes its transit through Pisces, and it moves into areas and areas your ninth whole sign house, which is the place of your philosophy. Your religion, your belief system. It's also the place of education and travel as well as exposure to foreign cultures and things that are foreign to what you grew up with..

"To like do something as simple as redecorating or reorganize your home in living situation in order to allow yourself to sort of rest and recharge as effectively as you possibly could. Maybe it has to do with your actual like having a home in living situation or gore signing leases or documents or hounding that in some instances people might relocate or find the need to relocate whatever it is. It's it's revisiting it. But also trying to bring some sense of finality or completion to it. So that you can move on with that part of your life over the course of the next few few weeks. Yeah. Definitely I've seen a few instances recently of people. Trying to sell homes that are arising and them contacting me asking why it's not happening yet. So this could be kind of like the final stages of moving that forward, and what's nice is. We'll have a nice turning point there. Especially around December six where mercury stations direct in Scorpio at the very end of this sign and then after that point it starts moving fast forward and starts picking up speed pretty quickly. And then very quickly moves out of that sign by December twelve when it'll move into such Terry's. But before we get there, we have the other major transit that's happening at the beginning of the month, which is the new moon in such terrace which takes place on December seventh and so the new moon insanitary joins Jupiter, which we just talked about briefly last month Jupiter spending a year trending, your fifth house of romance and children and general having fun. And so it'll be expanding that area of your life in the new moon on December seventh kind of punctuates that an. Adds an extra new beginning to something in that realm for you. Right so Jupiter. Just went in last month. That's going to be these teams of growth and expansion that are taking place over the course of the next twelve months, but a lot of that really ramps up this month, especially once we have that new moon insanitary is on December seventh because a new moon always represents a new beginning or laying new foundations or seeds of something that will grow over. The course of the next six months, so in the fifth house that could have to do with things pertaining children, whether it's your own children, if you have children, whether it's having children at some point in the future, or even in some instances, the fifth house can do with just the topic of children in your life in general, and it can mean other people's children in the role that they play in your life. So we've had we've had some funny examples of that. Right. Like, what was the my favorite one was the children's book writer, right? Yeah. I'm blanking on her name right now. A was it. Judy blume's yet Judy Blume as a stallion of planets like four or five planets in the fifth house. And she show both has children. But also she ended up writing children's books because one of them is the ruler pretend thousand career and that came to define her life. She became an award winning child children's book author seen this relevant to in people work with children in schools and things like that as well. Right. So that won't be the case for everybody. More broadly, the fifth house can also be that which you create in general more broadly speaking, especially sometimes than artistic sons, so can represent a new beginning with respect to if you have any sort of artistic or creative aspirations or if that's direction in your life that you'd like the head towards than certainly a new moon in your fifth house would be a good time to lay foundation for something that will grow in develop over.
"december 2018" Discussed on The Astrology Podcast
"It was more like a short term thing to can you think of an examples. I think those two are kind of the the most common either like Roman revisiting romances or reworking something with your children. Yeah. Or like revisiting the topic of children like if you want to have children, I'm finding that you had children. I once had a client like that who had Venus retrograde or something Saturn, go through fifth house. And like finding out that he had a child that didn't like thirty years later, something that's unique on that's pretty dramatic not necessarily everyone with cancer rising. I'm not saying you will all find shelter this month. You never know. So that some of the fifth house stuff going on, and that's really especially focused in the first week when we have those shifts take place in we have mercury stationing direct there because it starts picking up steam pretty soon after that the other major thing we have in that first week is a new moon, which takes place on December seven and such terriers. And this is happening in the other sector of your chart with his lot of activity this month, which is your sixth house of work and health. Right. And so that's the area. We mentioned briefly last month where Jupiter is spending a year kind of expanding that area of your life. So exp- bringing expansion and potential new horizons to either your work life or your your health routines or something of that nature. And so this new moon will happen within that context in the same sign of such terrace. Right. So the general cycles of sort of like. Growth and expansion that started last month without your long cycle of Jupiter through such terrace. Really get keyed off this month when we have this new moon because then it's like creating a new foundation or laying the seeds for something that will grow especially over. The course of the next six months between now in the middle of next year when there will be a full moon eventually in your sixth house, and some of the things that you initiate now this month in December will eventually come to fruition at that point in the middle of two thousand nineteen. All right. So that's going on. We've got the sun moving through Sagittarius most of the month. Eventually mercury also moves into such Terry in the middle of the month on December twelve so that's going to just increase that same energy and sort of ramp up some of the communication mercury. Of course stations retrograde there last month. This is going to be mercury still retreading old ground for a little bit. And maybe returning back to something that you thought was finished or that you needed to revisit from last month. When mercury was in a similar spot near chart related to either your workplace or perhaps related to your health. So that could be something like a diet and exercise regime, but it could also be something pertaining to like a doctor in meeting Dr doing sometimes health tests or sometimes having to redo health tests, a pretty straightforward common manifestation of murky retrograde in the six house and also if you're thinking about having pets, I think that's a lovely Jupiter. Expansion of the six palace. We'd mentioned I think after we did the horse last month we should bring in pets for sixth house because sometimes relevant people's lives. And so especially with that new moon there and the Jupiter transit if you were thinking about maybe getting a pet that might be a new start, right or the six houses also people that work for you or people that like employees or people that are in a subservient role to you..

"And so even though there's a full moon kind of culmination going on at that time. It may still be part of a larger story that continues to unfold throughout the the year and into next year. Right. So if there's a full moon here. In the third house this month that means that six months earlier there was a Newman harassed. You probably started something, especially maybe learning how to communicate something or some sort of educational thing, which now comes to some sort of Coleman Asian this month when you have this full moon in cancer in the third and since we're going to be bouncing back and forth since the eclipses are going to be bouncing back and forth. Starting in January between Capra corn and cancer. A large part of the emphasis of of that over the next. Couple of years is going to be this division between what you've learned. And what you know, or what you believe which is ninth house topics versus how you communicate those things to the world at large to other people, which is more of a third house topic and last month. Some people asked us why we didn't talk a lot about the nodes moving into those signs and cancer and Capra corn. And it's because it's not really until it clips is start taking place in those signs that that's going to become really relevant. And so that's going to start next month, which with the first clips taking place in Cabra corn. And then I think at some point later, we'll get Smith clips isn't cancer as well. Right. All right. So that kind of brings us though, towards the end of this month, the very last thing was giving something. Yeah. We have the Mars transit as well through Pisces, which we may be didn't. Yeah. It's not on the calendar. So Mars is gonna be transiting for the entirety of December through your eleventh.

"Month of December of two thousand eighteen joining me today's Lisa Shyam LIZA. I Chris, and we're going to be looking at the planetary transits in the movements of the planets relative to your horoscope for a basically the next few weeks. So let's jump right into it. So I we have just the circular chart for those of you with areas rising were Aries your first house, I whole sign house. And that's the primary thing that we recommend looking at our horoscopes from the perspective of is your rising sign, although you can also look at them from the perspective of your son sign, especially if you have a day short or your moon sign, especially if you have a nightshirt. So the shows where the plants will start at the beginning of the month, and how far through the signs of the zodiac they'll get by the end of the month. But let's actually jump to our other chart which actually shows the dates when the planets will move into certain signs it also shows the loon Asians, the new moon and full moon as well as planetary direct or retrograde stations. So this is a good starting point because we can see the very first thing that happens. If we move through chronologically is we have to planets move into Scorpio at the beginning of the month with mercury I moving into Scorpio or retrograde ING back. Into Scorpio on December first and then Venus moving direct into Scorpio on December second so for those of you with with areas rising Scorpio is going to be your eighth whole sign house, which is typically one of the things associated with eighth houses. It's the area of shared resources and shared finances or other people's money and general so usually when planets moved through the eighth house. They tend to bring up issues related to other people's money, either of a close partner or sometimes just other people in your life in general, right? And it's interesting that they're both going back into your eighth house because it kind of shows that there is going to be a wrapping up or a kind of a tail end of revisiting of some of the topics that you've been dealing with for a while in that realm because mercury's going back into that house, and then Venus is covering the same territory that. That it was doing in September October Venus was an Scorpio back then before it went into libra. And so now it's going back through your eighth house for the entire month of December. Right. So we had the whole Venus retrograde where Venus stationed there, and so sometimes that has to do with some topic that came up a few months ago with respect to shared resources, probably in your life. There's other eighth house topics. I mean, the house can sometimes have to do with issues pertaining to mortality issues pertaining to inheritance even sometimes like hidden or symptoms like a Colt matters can sometimes come up is like interesting or or weird eighth house type topics. But generally since this is planets returning back to that sign. It should be bringing something back up that maybe you dealt with few months ago, and you thought you had finished, but perhaps you need to revisit or return to during the course of the especially the early part of this month, yet definitely and also anything having to do with like mortgages alone 's other. Other sorts of financial topics like that also in the house, right? We always laugh we were doing delineation what earlier this month that was like a group reading for a local astrology group and somebody has heavy eight thousand placements, and we're trying to describe that. And it was also connected with their eleventh house of groups and friends and organizations and trying to explain that thing of how the shared resources or other people's money should be a major feature in their life. And they ended up having something really funny. Didn't look very literal something like a foundation for like dealing with people's estates. Right. They worked for a like an organization or foundation for dealing with people's the states, which really nicely. Brought all of those topics together. Right. So it doesn't always have to be so literal like that. But just the notion of returning back to bring to completion or bringing full circle some things having to do with other people's money as one of the themes that you might be dealing with this month. All right..
