Happy Independence Day July
Happy Labor Day September
The Summer Solstice Sun is at the
top of the chart promising an emphasis on leadership, business
and international investments. Sun trine Neptune foretells
transitions of leadership worldwide as age begins to exhaust some
and awkward scandals take out others. Corporations need
to replace their CEOs as well as CIOs. Expect new leadership in
various bureaucracies as mandatory retirements become effective.
Mercury leads into a grand cross,
therefore expect that communications prior to the solstice event
will be difficult and most likely related to weather challenges.
Now is a good time to check your
pantry, and refill your first aide kit.
Interesting spring weather has forced
folks to relocate and reinvent their business. Everyone has been
required to change their self-image and take responsibility for
the changes they create in their environment.
Solar activity will begin to slow
down in September, however it will continue to wreck havoc with
communications equipment. Jupiter and Uranus remain in Aries
from the point of view of the Sun. Be sure yours gadgets
are safely plugged into battery backed surge protectors.
Jupiter moved into Taurus
June 5 (link
to article, Jupiter in Taurus)
Taurus sectors for investors are
in the spotlight. Also consider that those things
in short supply are the sectors ruled by Aquarius and Scorpio.

Long Void of Course Moons
Throughout the past few months, students
at Astrological Investing have noted some rather long void of
course Moons during the trading day. Their conclusion is
that a long void of course Moon will indicate a volatile market
with dramatic ups or downs in the Index averages. With Neptune
at zero Pisces and the other planets in early degrees of their
sign, we will find a few dates with a long VOC Moon.
Check your calendar if you are trading
in Australia or London time zones; these calendars are posted
on the blog (link
to our monthly posted calendars at www.astrologicalinvesting.blogspot.com)
For New York, VOC moon time periods
for the entire trading day are: June 22, July 6, July 8, July
12, July 15, July 29, August 2, August 10, August 15 and 16, and
August 25. Lesson 1 The Textbook
for Financial Astrology Book 1 explains the hazards of VOC
Moon in detail.
July 1 Solar Eclipse at
This is a rather strange eclipse
for those who follow the eclipse cycles. It is the first one in
Saros Cycle #156. The eclipse will not be visible since it takes
place in the Indian Ocean near the Antarctic during their three
months of no daylight. Political and economic events during the
next six months will repeat when this cycle reforms during the
next few thousand years. http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEdecade/SEdecade2011.html
July 7 Jupiter trine Pluto
at 6 Taurus
This is a rather insignificant factor
for traders but does have an optimistic flavor to it as new leadership
moves into various corporate offices. The transit is applying
for several days building, adding to optimisim around the world
July 10 Uranus retrograde
at 4 Aries
Uranus gives us a sudden radical
change. He tends to be rebellious and disruptive taking
things in a new and unexpected direction. About 4 days before
the exact retrograde Uranus reverses the market trend. Following
the Rx motion 80% of the time the markets creep up.
August 3 Mercury retrograde
at 1 Virgo
Mercury Rx is an excellent time to
schedule vacation. Excellent adventures are promised, but be sure
to pack any carry-on luggage carefully. During a Mercury Rx the
markets slide up and down only to return to where they started
90% of the time.
During the 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...
August 26 Mercury Direct
at 18 Leo - YEAH!
August 30 Jupiter retrograde
at 10 Taurus
Jupiter Rx rarely signals a trend
change. Jupiter returns to the early degrees of Taurus bringing
a renewed interest in banking and financial services. Difficult
weather patterns in the Spring have generated a great deal of
speculation in commodity stocks. At this point in time harvests
are counted. Jupiter in Taurus usually brings an abundance
of corn and beans, therefore expect a lower price. (Review
the article on the web site, Jupiter in Taurus )
September 16 Pluto direct
at 4 Capricorn
The direct motion of Pluto indicates
a trend reversal and since it is very close to the Jupiter station
the trend reversal will become apparent about a week before the
Pluto station is exact. Purchase those equities that are high
on your priority list. Double check all of their astrological
and technical charts before committing your cash.
September 21 Fall Equinox

Summer Solstice Sun appears
on the Midheaven
The focus of attention throughout
the summer will be on leadership. New CEO’s have brought
in their new teams and will initiate changes throughout the various
companies. Now is a good time to read their Press Releases
to evaluate new ideas emanating from the changes at management
Mercury appears in the 10th
Communications are the focus of attention.
Weather or possible solar flares interfere with transmissions
of messages. Information technicians will have to work a
lot of extra hours to keep their companies in touch with customers
and suppliers. Mercury is part of a grand square that is
threatening the stability of various communications devises.
Saturn appears in the 1st
Folks are working hard and adding
to the economy. Corporations are convinced that it is best to
continue their frugal ways as they spend their income. The best
possible investment equities will have excellent cash reserves
and a history of increasing dividends. Growth equities are
out of fashion. If you ever considered being an Angel Investor,
(a private investor who gives start up cash in return for shares
in the company) now is the time to investigate this alternative
investment. Saturn in the first forces everyone to think
Pluto appears in the 4th
There is a call for adventure and
it is insistent. Folks are ready to defend their position on any
topic. Governments and their suppliers continue to be pressed
to diminish their work force. Weather is a problem and suggest

Moon appears in the 6th
The public is creating jobs in never
before imagined industries.
It is amazing the creative and ingenious
ideas that capture the imagination of customers who are willing
to part with a few bucks to try new ideas. My current suggestion
is cargo pants with velcro pocket flaps that play iTunes when
unfastened. : ))
Uranus appears in the 7th
The Sun will make an exact square
to Uranus in a few days suggesting that now is a good time to
discuss partnerships at every level. In the process it is
a good idea to take notes. You might also have some fun investing
a few bucks in an outrageous project or business. Remember this
little devise was an outrageous idea 30 years ago.
Venus appears in the 9th
People are indulging in local travel,
reading and taking advantage of inexpensive learning opportunities.
International trade will find new customers with clever ads penetrating
the less expensive communications devises.
Jupiter appears in the 8th
Paperwork rules the summer. Insurance
claims are multiplying like rabbits. The proliferation of
claims will stress the personnel working in the industry as well
as the price of insurance equities. Readers are advised to make
multiple copies of any claim you may submit
Mars appears in the 8th House
Energy will be focused on Insurance
and taxes. A proliferation of Insurance claims demand additional
employees at every level of the insurance business. Tax codes
in many states have changed dramatically. If you have a start
up business, now is a good time to check the various requirements
and tax liabilites of the various states. These states will compete
feverishly to attract new businesses especially those companies
involved in transportation and communications.
