After growing fed up from not receiving any royalty checks for his concert DVDs, comedian Louis CK took a risk by producing his own show and offering it for download on his website at $5 a shot. After ten days, he topped $1 million.
Louis CK has intellectual Mercury in his solar second house of earned income, giving him a entrepreneurial knack for making money. His Sun in Virgo is conjunct Pluto and Uranus, indicating a renegade character who does best when not following the rules.
Saturn has been transitting Louis’ solar second house of earned income for the past few years. When Saturn transits a sector of one’s chart, this can signify a time of dearth, but also the promise that hard work and a never-surrender attitude will pay off by the time Saturn ends it transit (which will do later in 2012). The mere fact that money was not coming in from his work, prodded Louis into taking matters into his own hands – and Saturn rewards maturity and taking responsibility. So take note you Virgos who have been having hard times, and think how you can turn your situation around!
Louis, is also a kind-hearted soul, because he gave most of his profits away in bonuses to his staff or donations to charity – keeping just $220,000 for himself….before taxes….
“I was going to [donate] $100,000, but it’s like blackjack — I just kept dishing it out,” the comedian told Jimmy Fallon.
Well that could be transitting Pluto conjunct his natal Moon in his house of risk and gambling talking. CK may want to keep the rest of his chips to himself because he is in an extremely giving mood, and his emotions can really take control of his better wisdom at this time, and if not careful he may regret giving so much away.
Uranus is also transitting his financial sector for the next 7 years, during which time he may experience sudden windfalls – but also sudden losses. Right now, Uranus is in positive aspect with risk-loving Mars, which is giving him gamblers high, but for the next year, it will be forming dissonant aspects with both Mercury in his income sector and the Moon, and he may make the wrong decisions about how to invest his earnings.
