*Note - The Autumnal Equinox - or
as it is often called, The Fall Equinox - is the date in the northern
hemisphere when the Sun crosses the celestial equator (declination
0) moving southward. Night and day are nearly equal
and this date marks the beginning of Autumn in the northern hemisphere.
In the southern hemisphere, the
center of the Sun crosses the celestial equator moving northward
- it is often called the Spring Equinox, marking the beginning
of Spring in the southern hemisphere.
It is the day when the Sun enters
the zodiac sign of Libra.
An Overview of the Astrological Events
of the Next Three Months
The Equinox Sun appears in the first house of the Equinox chart
and is all about the individual. Folks will consider the
image they project to the public. They will adopt various fashion
statements and top off their image with an outrageous hat.
Pluto dominants the aspect pattern. People will spend
time cleaning, fixing, and tossing useless clutter. Everyone
is impatient with paperwork and not willing to invest time on
the plethora of forms concerning insurance or taxes. Folks
will focus their attention on their lifestyle, fixing their homes
and the issues surrounding taxes.
3 Super New Moons - September
27, October 26, and November 25 are Super New Moons.
Super New Moons occur when the Moon is perigee, or at its closest
point in it orbit around the Earth.
Super Moons often predict natural disasters
such as severe weather, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity.
Richard Nolle created the term Super New Moon. Click

October 1st-14th North Node transits 17° Sagittarius

trade problem. (Click

October 28, Jupiter trine Pluto at 5° Taurus Capricorn
Jupiter will apply to a trine with Pluto starting with this Equinox
and ending with the Spring 2012 Equinox. Everyone will strive
for personal success. Agriculture and Business will find
plenty of work and energy to accomplish the goals they set. Business
abroad will remain successful throughout this time period.
The exact aspect marks an up market and the midpoint of an extended
period of buyouts, mergers and mega deals. It is also a
warning of bankruptcy among various financial institutions. It
is very important to check the debt obligations of equities on
your list of possible investments. Folks need to repeat
the mantra "Cash is King" when judging investments and
managing their own budgets.
Happy Halloween October 31
Happy Thanksgiving November 24
November 9, Neptune direct at 28 Aquarius
Often Neptune direct occurs just after the markets have made a
move to the upside. Statistically this has happened 85% of the
time during the past 12 years. Neptune direct indicates a continuation
of an up market.
Neptune's creativity has been most apparent in the electronics
industry. During the past 14 years the creative nature of Neptune
has brought a plethora of gadgets specifically designed to increase
the speed of communications world wide. Technology will continue
to expand, however the rate of innovation will slow.
November 12, Mars enters Virgo to stay until July 3,2012
Virgo has a reputation for precision and the ability to organize
disparate parts into a logical order. Mars will give Virgo a shock
of added energy. Folks will fill their trash cans, businesses
will clean up their balance sheets, legislators will find
their constituents insisting they dispose of waste and fraud in
November 24, Mercury retrograde at 20° Sagittarius
Mercury Rx is an excellent time to schedule vacation. Excellent
adventures are promised, but be sure to pack any carry-on luggage
carefully. It is important to double check all appointments and
times and dates for Holiday parties. Holiday gift shopping
needs to be accomplished prior to the Mercury retrograde station.
Mercury direct occurs December 14 and shoppers will find excellent
bargains. Retail stores will be required to make drastic
markdowns as folks naturally have difficulty deciding the exact
item to purchase.
Markets slide up and down during Mercury Rx only to return to
where they started 90% of the time.
During Mercury Rx it is best to avoid purchases of items over
$20. It is not a good idea to sign contracts, or purchase big
ticket items. it is a time to do things that start with “re”
. Example: read,recycle,repair, restore. When Mercury
goes retrograde the information available on any topic multiplies
and it is difficult to sort through all of the details.
November 25, Solar Eclipse at 2° Sagittarius, also
a Super Moon
The event is visible from high latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere
and includes southern South Africa, Antarctica, Tasmania and most
of New Zealand. (Click
for NASA's official page for eclipse information) These areas
will feel the effect of the eclipse with increased geological
activity and severe warm weather storms. There will be an opportunity
for political changes and unrest. An eclipse seems to create a
rip in the earth's magnetic field in the area where the eclipse
is visible, therefore increased atmospheric activity.
Interesting: The Dow Index has the Moon at 2° Sagittarius.
Therefore expect a change in the mix of stocks in the Dow
30. Companies with planets at 2 degrees Sagittarius will find
the next six months challenging.
December 10, Lunar Eclipse at 18° Gemini
Lunar eclipses are fun to watch. I consider them to be far less
difficult than Solar Eclipses. As to markets they are usually
non events. link (Click
for NASA's official page for eclipse information)
December 10, Uranus direct at zero degrees Aries,
also known as the Aries Point
The weeks surrounding December 10 promise to bring enormous
structural changes in how companies perform their work and interact
with other businesses.
Uranus direct does not indicate a change in market trends. 75%
of the time the markets obtain a balance and do not move either
direction for the few weeks surrounding the station point.
Erratic weather is the problem, therefore the commodities markets
will find traders anticipating short supplies of all items traded,
December 14, Mercury direct at 3° Sagittarius, YEAH!!
HAPPY WINTER SOLSTICE, December 22nd
Planets through the Houses
of the Equinox Chart
The Fall Equinox Sun appears in the 1st House
The Sun will focus attention on the individual. Folks are taking
care of their own security and well being. They are making decisions
about their own comfort zone and finding ways to improve their
immediate space. People are connecting with friends and resetting

Folks are seriously thinking about how they use their time and
energy. They are using their communications devises to efficiently

to add additional unique services. The advantage of internet shopping
or shopping with an I Pad is the delivery of items to the home.
These services could expand to other businesses such as a beauty
salon on wheels, massage therapists on wheels, and the return
of the tinker in the form of a dollar store on wheels.

Pluto Appears in the 4th House

Scandals concerning the labor markets will make headlines. Folks

NOTE: It is important to know that almost every Dow stock
has a planet in early degrees of Cardinal signs. (The
Textbook for Financial Astrology 3 contains charts for the
Dow 30, and we also offer just the Dow 30 charts, on our shopping
page as well.) With planets at early degrees, it is important
to watch those companies with planets in those degrees.
