Phnom Penh's No 1 ladies taxi scooter agency

In Cambodia's capital, motorbike taxis are everywhere - but it's extremely rare to see women drivers transporting tourists. Those who do are judged harshly. Katya Cengel meets the young entrepreneur trying to change that. When they show up at a Phnom Penh hotel in their tight red T-shirts and skinny jeans, people tend to get the wrong idea about Renou Chea and her fellow Moto Girl Tour guides.  Jan.5

In mundane astrology aspects between planets are studied very carefully especially when those planets appear on the angles in any particular place. On February 1, transit Mercury and Uranus formed a square in the heavens. A chart for the exact aspect drawn for Phnom Penh has the square as part of a larger T containing Jupiter-Pluto  straddling the angles. Moreover, Jupiter stationed retrograde on Feb. 6 triggering the T. Among other things, Uranus opposite Jupiter is about a breakthrough in socio-cultural issues. Being the god of the road, Mercury at the apex of the T is linked to modes of transportation so that girls in Cambodia providing motorbike taxi service certainly comes under the rulership of the T-square!

But there is a last bit of the jigsaw that we can see in the stars that conjoin Uranus on the Ascendant. These are stars in the constellation of the chained woman Andromeda, her father King Cepheus and the sea monster Cetus. In our present context it is easy to see what this means. Princess Andromeda chained represents the younger generation constrained by the rules of the patriarchy (King Cepheus). The monster Cetus has in a sense devoured Andromeda’s individuality or freedom to act as she pleases. Uranus, the planet of freedom from constraints, is bringing about the change mentioned in the news!
