January 18, 2010 Jupiter moves into Pisces
This is a short visit. He enters Aries June 6, 2010,
goes retrograde on July 23rd, and by September 9, 2010 Jupiter re-enters
Pisces. Jupiter returns to Aries January 22, 2011.
Jupiter moving back and forth between signs is the
reason 2010 will be a very volatile year. Every level of society
will have difficulty keeping up with the changes. Astrologicalinvesting
is planning to give you as much information as possible in the New
Moon Reports, on the blog and in the bulletin board forums where
you can chime in with your observations.
The financial sectors involved will be Shipping,
Energy, and Metals. Lists of specific Industries and Sectors
can be found in The
Textbook for Financial Astrology.
Demand comes in fits and starts from BRIC countries
and weather. Activity on the Sun will also be a factor
that will require daily monitoring at www.spaceweather.com.
My optimistic view is this is the first stage of
the Industrial Reformation. June 8, 2010, Jupiter
and Uranus meet up at Zero degrees Aries. This is the repeat
of the Pluto in Capricorn energy that gave Martin Luther the courage
to print the German translation of the New Testament - the first
step to the Protestant Reformation in 1522-1523. New inventions
and new ideas came together bringing a Peasant Revolution, and above
all, a spiritual reason to learn how to read.
In Financial Astrology, Jupiter has the ability
to produce abundant supply. He takes the assignment seriously.
During 2009, Jupiter transited Aquarius and produced an abundant
supply of electronic gadgets. An abundant supply of anything
usually brings down the price. Therefore, the prices for electronic
gagets plummeted. Lower prices means that profit margins are
squeezed, but often the volume makes up for the lower margins. Therefore,
technology companies continued to profit - and those with quality
products were able to maintain their price points while selling
additional merchandise. By the end of the 2009, most technology
equities maintained their value, while the best of breed gained
in value while they increased market share.
The markets world wide get very nervous
when Jupiter changes signs
The problem is that the public changes its mind
about what it wants when Jupiter changes signs. In 2009, the
days between January 5-20, Jupiter changed signs moving out of Capricorn
and into the sign Aquarius. The Market fell down from 9,000-8,000
on the Dow. Usually the markets recover once Jupiter hits 2 or 3
degrees of his new sign, but this new sign was Aquarius, and a majority
of Aquarius stocks were on the NASDAQ. The NASDAQ went from 1571-1507
from January 5-18. Starting with January 2009 Jupiter transited
Aquarius and then tech heavy NASDAQ moved up 41% while the industrial
balanced Dow Index was up 20%.
Jupiter transited Aquarius. The public wanted
anything and everything that they could recharge or plug into the
wall. There were plenty of items to choose. The companies that produced
popular items found the price of their stock increased. Apple computer
had the most popular items, and in 2009 the price of their stock
increased 128%. Remember when you wanted an iPhone last year? Dell's
offerings were less popular therefore, their stock price increased
Jupiter changes signs while Mars is retrograde
My thought is, reversal of a supply of energy -
meaning supplies are not needed by the market and are accumulating
exponentially. The problem could be any of those things ruled by
Pisces. Therefore, supplies accumulate at the shipping docks.
Pisces rules oceans and winter storms or other natural weather related
issues could cause shipping delays.
Which Pisces type equity will win the battle?
Pisces is all about fuel and energy. Jupiter
is all about an abundant supply. Jupiter's previous transits
of Pisces were 1962,1974,1986,1998. Price of gas adjusted
for inflation was $1.34 in 1974, $1.42 in 1986, $1.40 in 1998, and
in 2009, $2.79 . The 1973-74 Oil Embargo ended in March of 1974
several weeks after Jupiter entered Pisces.
What energy do you plan to spend money
on this year?
When Jupiter changes signs you change your list
of priorities. You begin to save your money for a new project.
You purchased a computer with a printer. Now you need to budget
your money to buy printer ink. The computer is ruled by Aquarius
and the ink is ruled by Pisces. Now you are surfing the web
In January 2010, markets will start the year by
being very nervous even when Mercury turns direct on January 15.
It will probably be February before the traders adjust to the sector
change. Usually one or two sectors related to Pisces will begin
to appeal to the public and then the stock traders. Gas, oil, and
drugs could be the first to gain popularity. In the Textbook
for Financial Astrology I discuss all of the economic sectors
ruled by Pisces. Each Textbook gives you additional information
on Jupiter transits.
On page 33, Textbook One, I start you off with some
of the areas of the economy ruled by Pisces. Think about some
of the industries involved in these areas. In Textbook Four,
I give you the sectors ruled by Pisces as they are listed in Investors
Business Daily. IBD then lists the individual stocks in that sector.
How to think About Supply and Demand as
Jupiter transits Pisces
It is so hard to think about, and yet it is so easy to understand,
Pisces and Drugs
Pisces rules some scary things that can become treacherous
when found in abundant supply. For example: illegal drugs, alcoholic
beverages, crime, and prisons. Imagine an abundant supply of drugs
with very thin profit margins. Imagine an abundant supply of alcoholic
beverages and cheap wine. Chronic unemployment can increase the
crime rate and therefore the prison inmates. Unemployment will attract
entrepreneurs in these areas and law enforcement will have some
real problems keeping up with people who are unable to pay for their
Pisces and Chemicals
Pisces rules chemicals. Think about chemicals in
surplus supply and what will happen to the price of say a barrel
of acetone. Then think about the related industries. What will happen
to the price of their products if there are too many chemicals.
Most chemicals are used in plastics and the price of plastics will
be a huge factor in the trade with the Far East. Toys of all varieties
will become cheaper or at least the profit margins will increase.
Pisces and Garbage
Pisces is often refereed to as the garbage dump of the zodiac. The
reason is that Pisces rules surplus materials-garbage. Surplus garbage
is a huge problem. Who do you call when you have 20 tons of garbage
sitting in the front yard? What do you do with the toxic chemicals
mixed into the garbage? Then what do you do with the useful materials
mixed into the trash? All of these problems insist on solutions,
and small businesses will form to solve some of the problems. The
Waste Management companies will be forced to charge higher prices
to increase the frequency of their service.
Now it is your turn to think about supply
and demand and economic sectors related to Pisces
Astrological Investing would love for you to share
your thoughts on the Community Bulletin Board Forums. Aquarius was
easy, "just plug it into an electrical outlet", but Pisces
has oceans of things to think about.
Oceans are a good place to start! OK,
Pisces rules oceans and shipping
Pisces also rules fantasy, photography, dancing
and film. Look out YouTube.
As for a surplus of fish, eat as much as you can while they are
cheap. Remember fish oil is heart healthy.
Go to the Wikipedia entry for Martin Luther.
Read about the times he lived in. Also read the entry about Montezuma
and Cortez. We are going through a time similar to 1515-1532 when
Pluto was also in Capricorn. The time period is called the Protestant
Reformation, but it was really a time when a new invention called
the printing press made it possible for fellows like Luther to translate
the Bible into the vernacular. Folks took a look at the establishment
ruled by the Catholic church and dramatically changed it. The printing
press gave people the opportunity to read - or learn how to read.
Translations of the Bible gave them a reason to learn how to read
and think for themselves.
Cortez ruined the economy of Europe at the same
time by importing gold. A large supply of gold made it less valuable.
Old hoards of gold bought fewer sacks of flour, and once wealthy
folks lost the value of their accumulated fortunes.
What we are experiencing is the same transformation
and I call it the Industrial Reformation. The Internet has dethroned
the industrial establishment and revealed their secrets. Treasures
of oil will be replaced by the abundance of other energies. Unfortunately,
workers are displaced and need to learn to read a new language -
