Ok, I think that most that could be said about this chart has already been said.
Blumen noticed the late Ascendant indicating that a decision has been made in her regard and also the beseiged Sun - she is practically beseiged.
We already know from the story that:
The new management, by contrast, exhibited signs of hostility toward the employees held over in the transition, especially those in supervisory and management positions. Her immediate manager had been summarily dismissed in a most reprehensible way.
So we know that she is beseiged, let's see by whom: Mars and Saturn.
The Sun is the triplicity (+3), term (+2) and face (+1) of Mars = +6, so even if it's in Jupiter's sign (+5) and in Venus' exaltation sign (+4), the actual dispositor of the Sun is Mars!
As for the Moon, it is in Mars' exaltation sign (+4) and term (+2), meaning that the true dispositor of the Moon is also Mars.
Besides, the Moon is in Saturn's sign.
OK, so the planets that besiege the Sun, are actually the planets that disposit her significators. So who has power over her and wants to harm her. From the background story, it's obvious that this is the new management team.
I take the 10th to represent her job/her career and not the new management team. Venus, ruler of the 10th is strong in domicile, so she has a good public image, a strong career that cannot be shaken easily.
Indeed Algol on the Midheaven and the Part of Fortune on Betelguese indicate that she came to hate the job with the new management in charge.
But she is not going to give up this job - the Moon (her) exalts Venus (job), and Venus is in applying trine with Jupiter - the job, despite the new management conditions, is worth it.
Now, we know that a decision has been taken concerning her (late ASC). The separating aspects indicate it also: both the Sun and the Moon (her) separate from an aspect with Mars (their dispositor, the management).
Mars is hating Venus, as it is in Mars' detriment. The management doesn't like her in that position.
And the Sun is beseiged - she's under attack too, as her previous immediate manager.
But both Mars and Saturn are combust... The "attackers besieging her" are combust, unable to finalize their attack.
So, what is going to happen? They want to dismiss her but are unable to do it at this moment. Therefore they will wait for a more favorable moment, when they'll be in a more powerful position.
We see Mars (management) in the third and last decanate of Pisces, soon to enter Aries, its domicile. This is when they'll be powerful enough to fire her. There're 7 degrees and a half to travel until Mars can enter Aries - in a mutable sign, a succedent house = months -> 7 months and a half!
And on October 24 she was indeed fired...
Please don't think I am smart enough to figure all this out by myself from the beginning - I already knew the outcome and actively looked for something that indicated the 7.5 months interval from the horary question until she was fired. And there was Mars, so I investigated Mars' in order to understand its role.
This was a tough horary to crack and I want to thank you you both for the brave interpretation. Probably I wouldn't have done better either without knowing the outcome.
The original chart data and interpretation come from http://www.thepoint.net/~fjernest/keepjob.htm
. But I'm not quite convinced by that delineation.
Please send further comments and tell me if you'd like some more such "tests".
