Dollar vs Euro
by Kaye Shinker
The dollar has made headlines since October 1, 2007. Its value relative
to the Euro and the Yen has decreased steadily. Even the Chinese
have suggested that they might reconsider pegging their currency,
Yuan, to the value of the dollar.
At the OPEC meeting November 17th,
Saudi officials were overheard suggesting that they might sell their
oil for Euro's instead of dollars. Speculating reporters at
the OPEC meeting suggest that if the dollar is further devalued
it could trigger a world wide recession.
OPEC is feeling very wealthy and powerful.
(Jupiter is conjunct the OPEC natal Jupiter.) However, over supply
problems loom in the future with Jupiter opposed Mars and then square
I'm hoping all of Europe drops by and fills their suitcases along
5th Avenue or the Mall of America. I'll even invite them to
Disneyland. (My Chicago stock club owns Disney). The French Canadians
have already begun their invasion of Louisiana. I counted 10 Quebec
license plates in our RV park this morning.
However, I am staying in the USA this
holiday season. I'm shopping on my computer. The reason is
that I reread the chart for the Dollar in my Textbook
on Financial Astrology #3. Before I published it, I
researched a dozen original texts and came up with the date for
The Dollar Coined. October 15, 1794. For a natal chart
time and date I use 9:00 am in Philadelphia. Rumor is that
engraver Robert Scot spent the first ones minted that day.
One way of checking the accuracy of a chart is to check the position
of the transiting Moon when you start writing about it or happen
to see a news broadcast concerning the subject of the chart. I'm
pretty sure that this is a good chart because as I am writing this
the transiting Moon is conjunct Mercury and Larry Kudlow just spent
most of his hour show talking about the Dollar.
Reversal of the current trend for the dollar?
When will the value of the dollar regain it value especially in
relation to the Euro? All 18 of the USA presidential candidates
suggest that maybe it will happen if they are elected. However
I'm trusting the astrological chart of the Dollar.
The Natal chart for the Dollar has a great deal of power with its
Sun trine Pluto. However, occasionally it has a fit of irrational
exuberance with its Jupiter conjunct Mars trine Uranus and jumps
out of its box. (My bet is on Silicon Valley inventing the USA out
of oil dependency) It will probably take all of 2008 for the
Dollar to return to the currency of choice world wide since its
natal nodes will be under the influence of the February and August
My astrological reasoning is that the transiting South Node is very
close to the Dollar's Uranus. The Transiting Sun will be conjunct
Dollar's Venus, Jupiter will conjunct Jupiter, and Pluto will be
conjunct the Dollar's Mars on December 15, 2007. That's enough
to cause a crisis and therefore a trend reversal.
I know you all are looking at the Sagittarius stellium December
11th. The date of the regular meeting for the Federal Reserve.
It's right at the Galactic Center. My advise: Stay home
and decorate the house and stir up some homemade cookies/eggnog.
Then turn on CNBC and your computers and trade long.
Oh, the Euro was first used as currency Jan. 1, 2002. It has
the South node at 27 Sag. and Chiron at 2 Capricorn. Definitely
a reversal aspect.
