and Saturn: These Planets Mean Business
by Kaye Shinker, author of The Textbook For Financial
In my opinion there are two planets that regularly effect business,
Jupiter and Saturn. Your business, my business, the business in
your neighborhood, city, state, and country.
Lets start with Jupiter
Jupiter is indulgent. He says, YES to everything and in fact says,
if one is good then two or three is better.
Jupiter expands the sign it transits.
Jupiter transited Cancer from July 2001-August 2002. The sign
Cancer is all about home and family. Home builders built lots
of huge homes. Every neighborhood had a plethora of buzzing saws,
pounding hammers, and swirling cement mixers. Jupiter expanded
Jupiter transits Leo from August
2002-August 2003. Leo rules children and toys. Did you notice
the number of pregnant talk show hostesses? Jupiter in Leo inspires
folks to produce lots of children. How about toys? My TV has a
huge number of advertisements for grown up toys like Humbees and
not so grown up toys, Video games.
Each sign of the zodiac rules a number
of things. When Jupiter transits a sign, he expands those things
ruled by that sign. In addition to children and toys, Leo also
rules casinos, theater, stock brokers, gold, music sports, and
Jupiter will transit Virgo from August
2003-August 2004. Virgo rules the harvest. Artists illustrations
of Virgo put a bundle of wheat in her hand. Last time Jupiter
transited Virgo in 1992, the bread machine became available to
Each time Jupiter has transited Virgo
there has been a bountiful harvest. An abundant supply of food
could mean that we all add a few extra pounds or it could mean
that we all decide to eat food that will keep us healthy. Either
way the cooking shows on TV and the recipes on the net will tell
about wonderful recipes for left overs.
Transiting Jupiter is big and generous
fellow, not content to just expand one sign he also expands everything
ruled by the opposite sign. For example the opposite of Leo is
Aquarius. Computers are ruled by Aquarius. If there are lots of
computers, then the price will go down. The opposite of Virgo
is Pisces. That would mean an abundant supply of fish. It is a
good think kids like fish sticks, they will have plenty to eat.
Now to the presumed bad guy
No one likes to be told NO. Saturn says NO, and like the strict
father he means exactly what he says.
Saturn is the universes comptroller. He balances the check book.
He earned As in math and A+s in accounting. Saturn says, there
is no such thing as a free lunch. If you earned your possessions
with honest hard work he allows you to keep them. If you acquired
the possessions by deceit, fraud or irrational exuberance, he
takes the possession away.
Since the start of the new Millennium.
Saturn has been transiting Gemini. Gemini rules the communications
and transportation industries. If it talks or rolls on wheels,
it is ruled by Gemini. Gemini rules telephones, walkie talkies,
radios, bikes, gold carts, cars and trucks to name a few. Communications
and the Auto Business have had to make some very unpleasant decisions.
These industries have all had challenges, internal management
struggles, and stiff competition. Saturn has focused Gemini industries
to cut personnel, develop efficient manufacturing methods, and
clean up the balance sheet.
Saturn holds no prisoners and believes
in survival of the fittest. Saturn does not believe in surplus.
Gemini industries have been forced to become efficient lean mean
competitive machines. When Saturn leaves gemini the Survivors
will flourish. Everyone else will close their place of business.
Transiting Saturn stays in one sign
for about 2 1/2 years. When he leaves he allows that industry
the opportunity to recover. The communications industry will recover
but also it will be new and different. Saturn's transit has forced
the industry to develop efficient and attractive products for
example flat screen TVs, world wide cell phone service. Saturn
moves into Cancer June 2003. Assume industries involved with home
and hearth will enjoy the opportunity to meet new challenges.
