FALL EQUINOX SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 11:44 am EDT
by Kaye Shinker
The Equinox chart from the point of view of Washington D.C.
gives us a quick overview of the three months ahead.
The Fall Equinox occurs September
22, at 11:44 am, EDT Washington D.C.
Over View of the final quarter
Predictions: Remember that the Earth moves in an elliptical
orbit, and therefore nothing moves in a straight line. Every
number can curve back to the place where it started, including
the Dow average. Therefore, check the number of the Dow on December
21, 2007, add the normal 4% annual increase and you will be pretty
close to what will be the ending average.
The Dow and S&P 500 stocks will
continue to be under stress, and many will announce the sale or
spin offs of various subsidiary companies. Their dividends, as
a result should be excellent, and by the Winter Solstice 14,000
on the Dow could easily be achieved.
Saturn and Uranus are opposed on
election day and opposition means ending. The electorate will
feel they have told the politicians that they want an honest accounting
of their taxes. This will also apply to local taxing districts
where a fair assessment of real estate is a key issue.
The Santa Claus effect will begin
right after the elections on November 4.
Mercury is Retrograde from
Sept 24-Oct 15, therefore, if it costs more than $10,
it would be a good idea not to purchase the product during that
Pluto returns to Capricorn
on November 26th.* The paradigm shift is to personal
responsibility. People worldwide will insist that governments
do less as well as lower taxes. The old ways don't work
especially in the economic areas of real estate and government.
If enough people refuse to buy the same quantity of a
product, then there will be a surplus of that product and the
price will plummet. That is Demand Destruction, and the best example
is housing and gas prices.
During the Winter and Spring of 2008
the public has learned a new fun game. Demand Destruction. They
know for sure that the money in their pocket can virtually bankrupt
the corporations or economic sector they choose. Pluto will return
to Capricorn for Thanksgiving Dinner. The customer is ready to
challenge every industry that raises prices above the fairness
rating they have predetermined.
The lesson to astronomers from Pluto
"Don't you dare demote me, watch your back. "I know
my job 'wrecking Ball' and I love a good implosion." In my
Textbook for Financial Astrology I list all of the things ruled
by Capricorn. Each one will have a huge problem during the Pluto

I know my job, 'wrecking Ball', and I love a good implosion."
Textbook for Financial Astrology, I list all of the things
ruled by Capricorn. Each one will have a huge problem
during the Pluto transit.
Pluto in the first is sextile Venus.
It is like an invitation to the Boston Tea Party only this time
it is ladies dressed as savages dumping the produce overboard.
The opportunity to exercise the power of the purse is happening
in tiny events of everyday living. Shopping trips are combined
and children are told to walk. Gasoline prices are down, old driving
habits do not return and the extra cash goes to retail.
The Economy improves
Jupiter is in the second and the economy has started to improve.
Local and national sales tax receipts are on the rise. Banking
and commercial mortgage companies finalize their write downs of
sub-prime mortgage paper therefore freeing capital for investments.
There is a lot of investment cash available for mortgages, and
it will have the opportunity to choose carefully the area of the
housing market it favors.
Neptune in the third reveals that
forensic accounting has produced results. The various regulatory
bodies have had little trouble finding fraud and deception. It
is in plain sight Greed and corruption especially among the hierarchy
of money lenders has been identified and the public is a little
bit angry. Commodities speculators are either broke or under investigations.
Fraud concerning auto loans will be uncovered. Be aware that regulations
concerning auto design will be allowed to expire.
Uranus in the Fourth
The housing issue continues to befuddle the experts. However they
do not know how to read the census tables. The baby boom wants
smaller houses and the baby bust has a limited housing budget.
It will be a long time before the baby boomlet born in 1990 will
actually move into their own homes.
Water and Wind damage to property
will be a huge problems since it appears in unanticipated places
thus driving insurance underwriters into the red.
Uranus is opposed Saturn on election
day therefore, the winner at every level is the
candidate that folks believe can truly offer constructive change.
It is a very strange election, not one pollster will guess the
Moon in Cancer in the eighth
Health issues among the elderly, especially women, are the result
of unintended consequences.
Folks are emotionally upset about fraudulent lending practices
concerning reverse mortgages and other types of lending practices
that use homes as collateral. Property taxes are also an
issue that neither political party has considered carefully.
Sun and Saturn in the 10th
Management in various companies continues to return to the founders.
They are particularly upset with inaccurate book keeping. CEO's
and CFO's are replaced almost daily.
Some astrologers will use this chart to predict elections.
If the method works, the old guy (Saturn) with the Sun behind
his back wins. However, Uranus in the 4th indicates
that it will be the weirdest wildest change in government that
we have ever experienced.
Mercury and Mars conjunct suggests closed mouths gather
Mars gives Mercury a lot of energy, and therefore, way too many
folks talking without documentation concerning their facts or
the origins of their opinions. Both trine Neptune, separating
fact from fiction becomes a huge exercise in research and a lot
of other folks refuting and even suggesting law suits.
Venus is also in the 11th
and women with the ability to network or manipulate networks will
find increased earnings. A few will make headlines.
The Board of Directors wish to declare
a larger percentage of earnings in the form of dividends to the
shareholders who are more impressed by cash than buy backs. Earnings
by corporations is the whole story for this quarter. Those companies
that successfully manage their capital will win the favor of shareholders.
