The New Moon in Aries, Wednesday,
April 14, 2010 at 8:29 am EDT Washington, D.C.
Happy May Day, and expect an exciting Kentucky
Derby, May 1st!
Happy Mothers Day, May 9th.
Enjoy the wonders of Spring in the Northern
Hemisphere and the beauty of Fall in the Southern Hemisphere.
The New Moon is illuminating opportunities for
folks to identify deceptions by public officials and improve
the governing of public institutions. Interesting scandals
will emerge, but folks will spend most of the month discussing
these problems unable to agree on ways to fix them.
Mercury is Retrograde from April 18
through May 11th
Mercury retrograde starts April 18 suggesting
it is time to relax, regenerate your energy, and repair your
toys. Shopping is perilous to your wallet. Remember, if it costs
more than $15 you need to research the product and wait for
Mercury direct. This Mercury Retrograde will be in Taurus, the
sign that tends to be very practical and very stubborn. No one
needs a big ticket item with a stubborn defect. It is a good
time for traders to rest.
Saturn opposed Uranus at 28 Virgo Pisces, April 27
(This astrological phenomena was not mentioned
in the Spring Equinox report, but is very important to note!
) This opposition has proven to be a political issue and regulations
concerning the financial markets will be the focus of attention.
It has, so far, had little effect on prices in the financial
markets, but thoughtful regulations need to be enacted. This
time the opposition appears during a Mercury retrograde which
just adds confusion and the inability of rule-makers to perceive
unintended consequences. When the markets get confused
they hold still.
Structure verses change will be a world-wide event with a focus
on currency and will relate to the transit of Mars returning
and crossing its stationary retrograde point of 20 degrees Leo
the week of May 17th. According to the research of Nick Dagen
Best this is usually a turning point in the life of Fidel Castro
and the Island of Cuba. Changes in the political system of Cuba
could once again spill over into Florida and therefore disruptions
to the fragile economy of Florida.
Jupiter opposed Saturn, May 23
This is also a political issue which signals
changes in governments world wide.
This is a quote from Victor Ledeboer's E-book,
Master of Time An Epos of W.D. Gann's Master Time Factor. (available
on our shopping page.)
“A negative Saturn half way 2010 could
lead to heavy cuts in government budgets and thus in bureaucracy.
People who think they are safe working for the governments
could well be in for a tough time. The effect could result
in a change in the citizen - politics relationship.“
Victor Ledeboer, The Master of Time, pg 85
New Moon in Aries
in the 12th House
The New Moon concentration of planets in the 12th house suggests
that public institutions are under intense pressure. Budgets
must be cut. No public employee wants to lose their job, but
lack of tax receipts insist that whole agencies disappear.
Elected officials will be required to make tough decisions.
These decisions will be made behind closed doors.
Mercury in the 12th house
This Mercury, while direct, continues to discuss
laws concerning helping the poor/disabled and institutionalized.
Opinions are forcefully expressed and stubbornly held.
The real problem is when Mercury goes retrograde
in Taurus. The media on both sides of every scandal will
discuss them, but no one is able to agree on a solution. Don't
ask anyone to make a decision any further into the future than
Venus in the 12th house
Institutions and governments try to increase
their budgets by asking for donations and grants. Some are able
to increase their budgets and benefits. Parks and recreation
will gain more receipts than expected since they are the least
expensive of recreation options.
Mars in the 3rd house
Auto sales are slow because of Mercury retrograde.
Folks are anticipating future machines with better mileage than
what is currently available. Recreational vehicle sales are
Commodities markets have problems. Commodities
prices are all over the place. News reports concerning weather
will cause volatile grain prices. Erratic demand for metals
will keep traders extremely busy. The underlying problem is
currency and their floats.
Pluto in the 8th house
Pluto is at home in the 8th and happily collecting
taxes and insurance premiums. Tax collections are higher than
expected. The party in power takes the praise and the blame
for higher everything. You may begin to recognize the cultural
shift will in attitudes toward personal responsibility. Folks
are considering new ways to incorporate their businesses into
a desirable lifestyle.
Neptune in the 10th house
Employment continues to be elusive especially
at the managerial levels. Creative and ingenious personnel is
the need. Folks with the talent to manipulate audio, video and
the written word in an attractive setting are the desired employees
as advertising returns to the media. Opportunities abound for
those behind the scenes and producing creative material.
Jupiter in the 11th house
Jupiter is rapidly moving to a conjunction with
Uranus. 80% of their conjunctions have produced a high in the
market. The same is true for transits of Jupiter to the Uranus
on a Corporation. Therefore corporations formed during the 1920's
and still operating on their original incorporations documents
should do well during this transit. Dividends paid this month
will be excellent and higher than forecasted. Double check your
research and try a few stocks in the materials and machinery
Uranus in the 11th house
Tech stocks have outfoxed us. Note the ones
with cash on their balance sheets. (See
the topic, "New economy? Stocks with cash and no debt"
in the community bulletin board) They have survived this
crisis and learned the magic lesson of how to do it again. In
the 11th they may chose to reward their shareholders with dividends.
Unlikely but possible with Uranus the planet of unexpected changes.
