Saturn In Virgo Story

I love this. Two men have been banned from national parks after 'vandalising' a sign by correcting the grammar.

Jeff Michael Deck of Somerville, and Benjamin Douglas Herson, of Virginia Beach, Va., pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Flagstaff after damaging a rare, hand-painted sign in Grand Canyon National Park... Authorities said Deck and Herson, both 28, toured the United States from March to May, wiping out errors on government and private signs.

...An affidavit by National Park Service agent Christopher A. Smith said investigators learned of the vandalism from an Internet site operated by Deck on behalf of the Typo Eradication Advancement League, or TEAL. According to the Internet posting, TEAL members agreed to stamp out as many typos as they could find in public signage and other venues.

Rest of story here

How Saturn in Virgo is all that? Saturn is authority, tradition, and the law, and Virgo is about getting stuff right, especially the little things that mean a lot; like mending signposts of their broken grammar. And they are both 28, which means they are going through their Saturn Return, which means they must have Saturn in Virgo in their charts too. So it's the established law ("it's been like that for years, leave it alone!") against their law ("no one should be forced to endure grammatical errors in this day and age"). So whose right? That's the trouble with laws isn't it, it depends what angle you're coming from. Vandalism? or the result of sticking in at school?.

Without some people like them, obvious changes would be never made so good for the Saturn in Virgo generation
