An Overview of the Astrological
Events of the Next Three Months
October 12 - Jupiter Direct
This aspect will probably turn
the market and add to the volume of trades. Cash currently on
the sidelines will move cautiously back into the market. If you
are considering starting a new business, now would be the time
to start writing a business plan.
October 30 - Saturn enters
Saturn changes signs from Virgo
to Libra. September 1980 Saturn entered Libra and over a
16 month period the markets dropped 26%. Inflation was rampant
and some Certificates of Deposit paid 17% interest. The
Hunt brothers tried to corner the silver market. It is a
perilous time for all markets requiring every one who trades to
be at their computer. However it is also a time when great
new inventions come to the market. Example: IBM introduced
the PC with Microsoft software.
The next six weeks should present an opportunity
to find some real bargains. Electronic items are cheap
and this includes computers.
Local politicians will realize that to return
vacant commercial real estate to the tax rolls they must do
everything possible to encourage startups of small business.
Fashion historically goes through a huge transition
when Saturn enters Libra. The current fashion for Saturn in
Virgo seems to be "poverty chic". Saturn in
Libra finds longer skirts and new designs will require more
Previous transits of Libra have cleaned up the
law books and improved the tax laws. Libra insists on fair laws.
A new Reality game could be "Which municipality
has the most outrageous law still on the books?"
November 3 - Neptune Direct
Direct motion helps creative and
content driven businesses. Folks clearly see various deceptions
they have experienced during the past few months. Forensic accountants
will have plenty of work. Confusion concerning the previous year
of chaos on Wall Street will become clear. A plethora of books
from financial journalists will hit the best seller list. Usually
the direct motion for Neptune has little up or down effect on
November 15 - Saturn square
The waning square exasperates the
problems of condominiums, commercial real estate and especially
the budgets of local governments. The issue is vacant property
and unpaid taxes. Saturn moving away from Virgo will help resolve
some of the issues concerning health care and employment. However,
Saturn will revisit these issues in Spring 2010.
December 1 - Uranus Direct
Usually the direct motion of Uranus
helps technology create new products to introduce to the market.
Manufacturers of hardware and software also have an easier time
selling new products to the consumer. It is a good idea to read
the web site of any technology stocks whether you are buying their
products or their stocks. Look for early publicity concerning
the new products they intend to introduce in the year ahead.
December 20 - Mars Retrograde
Various international agreements
concerning energy are under discussion. The BRIC countries are
the focus of attention and being encouraged to use alternative
energies. At the end of the 90 day retrograde we could be very
surprised at how energy sources have changed. Traditional vehicles
will find new parking spots at the scrap yard. Wars and litigation
started under Mars Retrograde will be lost by the group that initiates
the action. The Textbook
for Financial Astrology Book 1
has some good stories concerning
December 21 - Jupiter conjunct
This is the Santa Claus effect and it has been
inspiring a certain euphoria and folks are shopping. Pent up
demand has found folks wrapping as holiday gifts items that
might be considered necessities. Buyers anticipate a cold winter
and shop for creative toys to keep them entertained.
The Equinox Chart (See
Libra Sun appears in the Seventh House
The Sun is moving quickly to an exact
square with Pluto. The square to Pluto presents every issue as a
difficult problem demanding a practical solution. Leaders appear
to be trying their best, but the problems are very complicated.
International business is having difficulty finding ways to capitalize
on the situation. Relationships with foreign markets is the major
driving force of the markets. Sources for energy have changed and
folks begin to notice lower utility costs.
Venus in the Seventh House
Venus in this position will use the dollar to help solve
various international disputes. Most disputes will involve foreign
financial institutions where the pressure will be on the exchange
rate for the dollar and the value of Treasury bonds. It appears
the value of the dollar will rise very slowly as the price of oil
dips. As long as oil is valued and useful the dollar will remain
valuable and useful. When oil is no longer used for energy then
the dollar will no longer have a trading value. The Euro’s
value is based on gold. The Textbook for Financial Astrology has
charts for both currencies as well as oil.
Mercury Retrograde in the
Diplomatic blunders cause trade disputes.
Mistranslations and misleading commercial transactions along with
copyright disputes cause international disagreements. The issues
are very difficult to solve and probably include illegal trading
of prescription drugs as well as film and oil.
Communications are in a state of confusion.
The world of the smart phone verses the internet has hit a wall
of problems with each one demanding a plethora of companies arrive
at creative solutions. Investments in communications companies will
reward those who research methodically.
Saturn in the Seventh House
Employment in the service sectors becomes
an international problem. Health issues are on ‘chicken little’
dilemma with few international agreements able to work out a viable
solution. The public world wide seems to be oblivious to all health
concerns. Of course there will be a few who feel they have earned
a few pajama days.
Moon in the Ninth House
The public sees the international disputes
as an unusual opportunity to have some fun with all the politico’s
acting like fools. Those who can will take a few trips abroad. However
everyone is having a bout of euphoric fun. The Santa Claus effect
is in full swing and they see snow and Jingle bells and family feasts
as the best good time imaginable. The public has tuned out the world
of business along with the Bulls and Bears. Some are actually celebrating
the holiday by hanging out in their favorite house of worship.
Pluto in the Eleventh House
Legislators are very unhappy with their
colleagues. Boards of Directors are very unhappy with their CEO’s.
Stock holders are very unhappy with their dividends. The solution?
FIRE them immediately if not sooner. Ok they can have a golden parachute.
Jupiter in the Twelfth House
Get Out of Jail Free. Even charities
are collecting extra money and states are letting their inmates
out because they have run out of money. Scandals in business concern
embezzlement and some are false accusations
Neptune in the First House
Fraud is rampant, Treacherous behavior
is not uncommon. This is a case of identity theft probably destroying
the credit industry. Expect the cosmetic industry to introduce some
exceptionally creative products.
Uranus in the First House
Fortunately the weather may prevent
strikes or riots. The people feel rebellious and are doing their
best to have their message heard. They are insisting on reforms
but refuse to give up any freedoms to do business. Most people believe
that laws are written so they can determine how to avoid them.
"Oh I'm so glad you picked
up, this is Goldilocks, remember we met in London."
"Right, we had a gourmet dinner
at Gordon Ramsey's place. That was right before I immigrated to
India. Dick was concerned I would starve to death here,
you know? I took the placement at their stock exchange.
Do come and spend a holiday here at my place. I purchased
a barn in the country and opened a training center for kittens."
Goldilocks was fishing for that
"I'm cottage sitting for the
Three Bears with my friend Ferdinand the Bull, and we are just
waiting for the Bear family to return from their summer holiday.
As soon as we have an exact date for the flight out
of New York, I'll call back"
"Great weather here you know.
Waiting to hear from both of you. Ferdinand will be very comfortable
in my barn. He will love the lotus blossoms. Is he coming?"
"I hope so. Bye"
