Neptune Fire Engine RED Flags
by Kaye Shinker
A member of my stock club looks
first for Neptune transits whenever she looks at the chart of
a company. She believes Neptune represents either liars or thieves
or chaos. And she believes that Neptune exposes them
whenever it transits a planet in the chart of a company. Therefore
the stock price is going nowhere. She never comes
to a meeting without knowing exactly where transiting Neptune
is at the moment and where it is going.
During 2009 Neptune starts
at 22 Aquarius, moves to 26 Aquarius, turns retrograde to 23 Aquarius,
and ends the year at 24 Aquarius.
The USA Moon in the Sibley chart
is at 27 Aquarius. The American public has a Neptune transit
all of 2009 and 2010. Liars, thieves, rogues, cheaters,
fibbers, con artists will make headlines. The Better Business
Bureau will probably have to hire extra staff just to keep up.
Vedic Astrologers note: 23 is an important
degree in a Tropical chart.
of Neptune Red Flags in Corporate Charts:
1. Transiting Neptune with
a hard aspect ( conjunction, square, opposition) to Mercury.
2. Jupiter or Pluto transiting
conjunct to natal Neptune.
Companies with IPO's in 1984 would
have this aspect. Circuit City for example, has suffered
during the transits of Jupiter and Pluto over its Neptune. Circuit
City couldn't recover quickly enough before transiting Jupiter
made a square Neptune February 2008 and finally filed for bankruptcy
3. Transiting Jupiter
in opposition to Neptune.
Transiting Jupiter was opposed
the Federal Reserve’s Neptune during December 2008 on
its way to a conjunction with Uranus in January 2009. Definitely
a picture of grand chaos for everyone involved. Thank Goodness
this aspect does not return.
4. Transiting Neptune in
hard aspect to Mars.
Poor General Motors whose Incorporation
chart has transiting Neptune square Mars five times from January
2008 to December 2009.
5. Transiting Neptune in
hard aspect to Venus
Bank of America's IPO has Transiting
Neptune square Venus and transiting Saturn square Neptune throughout
During the past two years Neptune Red Flags have
appeared all over the Incorporation and IPO (First Trade) charts
of Companies in the DOW. A few escaped, but generally speaking
most of the Dow stocks have “just gotten to big for their
britches” as my grandma would say. Keeping an
eye on personnel, suppliers and customers is extremely difficult.
The reason a company is placed in the DOW is that
they have the largest market capital in their sector. They are
just to big for one group of managers. They will be forced
to downsize and sell or spin off their subsidiaries. They
will do their best to maintain shareholder value, we hope.
Sometimes it is hard to
spot Neptune aspects, but you must always check.
I thought I would play a game of Neptune and the
Dow. The industrial index itself will suffer Saturn square Neptune,
and Neptune square Venus throughout 2009. Therefore I suspect
that Neptune will not slip by the stocks on the Dow industrials
Textbook 3 has all the
charts of companies in the Dow. Using the charts we will
do a bit of preliminary research to see if any one of the Dow
stocks has a difficult Neptune transit. If Neptune
did not make any difficult aspects to either the Incorporation
Chart, or IPO Chart of the company, I wrote" OK" next
to its call letters. If Neptune made a hard aspect
to any planet in either Inc. or IPO chart I wrote "NO"
next to its call letters.
Demonstration of Research
of Neptune Transits to the DOW charts throughout 2009:
What does this mean to the investor
and the trader?
The investor would pick one of the stocks that
says "OK" and then look at the rest of the chart, checking
for a solar eclipse to Sun, Venus or Jupiter and then check the
technicals using an online site and then double checking with
Investor's Business Daily. If the stock passed all
the tests then it could be a good investment.
Remember, in Financial Astrology "No"
is a valid answer. The ones where I said "No"
are for traders who know how to trade short and/or long and have
very good discipline when watching their stops.
To demonstrate research
I use Dow stocks because they make headlines on the Financial
pages. However to make money in the markets you will need
to look for stocks with a smaller market capitalization. Companies
with an innovative product or the opportunity to grow.
Financial Commentators have nicknamed these stocks
‘’hidden gems". Before you take their
word for it, check to be sure that the turquoise planet Neptune
is out of the picture.
My suggestion is to make a list of these hidden
gems, calculate their charts and then look quickly for Neptune
transits. The easiest way to do this is to find out the
number of the degrees Neptune will transit during the past few
months and then to the year ahead.
Remember, in 2009 Neptune
will transit 22 degrees of Aquarius all the way to 26 degrees.
Therefore any planets in the IPO or Incorporation chart of a company
at those degrees will be at risk.
If you own the Textbook For
Financial Astrology, Book 2, print this article and put it
at the end of Book 2. If, and when the Dow is revised, I will
update Textbook 3, and I will make
an announcement of the changes.
