The Winter Solstice
2010 Dec 21 2010 6:38 pm EST
Prior to the Sun entering Capricorn, which
marks the Solstice, there is a Total Lunar Eclipse at 3:13 EST
am at 29.20 degrees of Sagittarius.
It should be an exciting eclipse with plenty of
scandals and whistle blowers hitting the internet headlines!
This is not your grandfather's war. Those in power have
no idea about how to handle the situation and, for the most part,
their answer is “no comment”
A spider web is very pretty when the Sun’s
beams sparkle through it. The internet has earned the name
World Wide Web and there is no way to unweave it. Revelations
concerning the past 15 years of secret documents will continue
into the public domain, and Wikileaks will acquire readers in
every segment of society. The share price for companies
involved will be vulnerable to erratic swings. Companies in the
business of security software will enjoy increased sales.
Neptune is moving back and forth over the USA
3rd house Moon at 27 Aquarius. Internal communications in
the USA will remain vulnerable to various levels of misspeak until
June of 2012. Transiting Neptune has convinced Americans
that they have been scammed, swindled, tricked, hustled, defrauded,
and hoodwinked. And their answer to those responsible is
“You’re Fired”. Long term investors will
be wise to investigate the actual transparency of communications
within the company before the commit to the purchase of a stock.
Below are very specific dates determined by when
the phenomena are exact. Usually events will occur a few
weeks before the exact date. A dramatic example:
July 20-August 2, a plethora of astrological aspects lined up.
The markets hit their low (Dow 9700) for the year on July 2. Always
remember markets anticipate the actual economic news.
Lunar Eclipse December 21, 2010
Lunar eclipses help you finish projects and evaluate the results.
It is a good time to study your portfolio and clean your
desk. This one at 29 Gemini will give you the opportunity to evaluate
your communications equipment, your vehicles, and your basic education.
Gemini suggests that you write notes about the above and make
the changes required in your life early in the new year. (To view

December 30, Mercury Direct at 19 Capricorn
January 4, Solar Eclipse at 14 Capricorn
At 14 Capricorn the eclipse is in the middle of the sign of business.
Many new business will be formed during the next six months. Capricorn
seeks to go to the top of of its profession and these new businesses
will work very hard reflecting a new style of business principles
and business plans. Three new ideas are quality products,
cash on the balance sheet, and honest contracts with customers.

January 4, Jupiter conjunct Uranus at 26 Pisces
The conjunction has a very good reputation for bringing up the
market averages. The averages usually go up into the conjunction
and then gradually move higher in the weeks that follow.
Super Full Moons will predict earthquake/volcano weather.
They are: January 19, February 18, March 19.
January 22 Jupiter enters Aries
Favored sectors are changing. Usually the markets will fall for
the few days moving into Jupiter's sign change as professional
traders sell out holdings in one sector and buy in another. (Read
my article on Jupiter in Aries: http://www.astrologicalinvesting.com/html/articles_pages/articles-Jupiter_in_Aries.html
January 26 Saturn retrograde at 17 Libra
Saturn retrograde puts the emphasis on the accounting departments
of businesses. Changes in accounting rules and tax laws
will keep the CFO’s very busy. The effect on market averages
is negligible and does not reverse a trend. This time it could
be a buying opportunity since there will be some confusion because
Jupiter is changing signs.
February 25 Jupiter square Pluto at 7 Aries Capricorn
This is a quick aspect and markets will reverse about 1% for the
few days near the exact date. However, optimistic Jupiter
does not make a bad aspect in market terms. In this case
it should help new businesses find ways to improve their capital
investment. Investors need to pay attention to creative
small caps. Employment should increase and the result is additional
funds sent to the treasury. It is a time when new ideas
are coming to market, therefore pay attention to the lists of
March 12 Uranus enters Aries
Uranus' transit through Pisces dramatically changed music, dancing,
and shoes. Uranus' transit through Aries means things concerning
your head will change. Obvious changes will include hats,
and electronic and digital head gear such as ear phones, etc.,
glasses, makeup, and hair styles. Uranus invents lots of new things
when it transits a sign. Therefore expect to find new investments
in companies that create digital head gear, comfortable glasses,
and cosmetics for a new look. There will also be changes in metals
In the Textbook for Financial
Astrology Book 1 you will find a list of Aries sectors to
watch for investing. Also, read my article detailing the
history of Uranus's previous transits of Aries. http://www.astrologicalinvesting.com/html/articles_pages/articles-UranusInAries.html
We will call this the definitive date of the paradigm shift
for the general population since most of the changes will occur
in one’s home.
Market bubbles like Jupiter and Uranus in Aries. They will be
together in Aries from March-June. If an investment seems to good
to be true: IT IS.
The Solstice Sun appears in the
sixth house (refer to chart above)
The Solstice chart actually promises employment. And,
in fact, the sixth house is occupied by 4 planets further promising
an increase in the numbers of people who find jobs or invent their
own work. Throughout 2011 a plethora of new businesses will
form. Group one will replace those businesses closed by
retirement or bankruptcy. Group two will find a need and
fill it. Group three will bring exciting new products to
market. Group four will assist the other three with bringing their
businesses to the world market.

of temps that are particularly efficient.
Neptune appears in the 8th house
In this solstice chart, Neptune, the planet that represents inflation,
confusion, and deception, occupies the 8th house of taxes, insurance,
and other people's money. Inflation is a problem and commodity
prices are the direct cause. Insurance, death, and taxes are the
primary concern of the average citizen during these three months.
A number of scams and scandals will divest folks of their

favorable now it will also be favorable in a few months. Insurance
companies have quite a few new rules to sort through and will
have difficulty setting rates.

Technical workers need to adjust to new demands on their skills.
Moon appears in the 12th house
This position of the Moon indicates fewer gifts to charity. Illnesses
tend to last longer than folks expect. Weather is cold and difficult
therefore folks are doing their best to stay warm and avoid even
going to the drug store or doctor. Companies that deliver to the
home will find a great deal of work.
Saturn appears in the 4th house
The Midwest to the East Coast of the US will be cold and dry.
Snow will be a problem in March. Housing continues to be a problem
