Cancer New Moon
#2 is also a Total Solar Eclipse.

“The weather of that day will stay that way”
is the saying that goes with the path of the eclipse. Usually
the path indicates an area very vulnerable to violent weather.
Example: The 2005 eclipse
was visible in New Orleans and Katrina pounded the city causing
the levees to break.

everyday and unless Jupiter and Neptune can talk the Sun into
producing more spots then it is unlikely CME’s (Coronal
Mass Ejection) will be a problem.
But, sun spots can form quickly! And any CME aimed
at these emerging markets could devastate the entire region.
More likely, since this is also a Super New Moon,
are earthquakes and volcanic activity. (A New Moon is considered
a Super New Moon when it is closest to the earth - or Perigee.
Both tend to be isolated weather hazards, however,
volcanic ash tends to circle at high altitudes for a long time
causing cool wet weather. An example is
Sarychev, a Russian volcano, that whirled around the globe
- and even the internet! - in June 2009. There are plenty
of volcanos beneath the path of the eclipse, http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=24&month=06&year=2009

Solar Eclipse in Corporate
We urge our subscribers in India,
China and Southeast Asia to set charts for your capital city.
Note the location of Pluto.
The effect of an eclipse on Incorporation charts and IPO charts
is also interesting to watch. If you have The Textbook for Financial
Astrology, Textbook 3, watch the charts of the Dow 30 as the eclipse
hits various planets in their charts. For example,
the Incorporation chart for Boeing shows the Sun at 26 degrees
Cancer, three degrees from the eclipse point. GM has Saturn
at 29 Cancer.
My favorite interpretation of an eclipse contact
is the eclipse conjunct Venus, "Your guardian angel goes
on vacation." Country charts of North Korea and Vietnam as
well as Disney’s Incorporation chart will have that problem
this summer. Events related to an eclipse in Cardinal signs
Saturn opposed Uranus (helio
point of view)
The heliocentric opposition of Saturn and
Uranus is within a degree of exact. This means be very careful
with your investments and make sure your stops are firmly in place.
It also means the rumors are probably true.
Check the list of things ruled by Virgo
and Pisces. Fraud is everywhere. Imagine Saturn holding Uranus
upside down and shaking out his pockets.
The Jupiter Neptune conjunction remains in effect
and therefore folks are still feeling pretty optimistic about
their own future. Many are looking at their hobbies and devising
ways to turn them into profitable enterprises. If you can’t
determine your hobby, look at the list of web sites you frequent
most often. That is your clue.
Eclipses: Three in a Row
The first Lunar eclipse associated with
the Solar eclipse appeared July 7 and the follow up Lunar eclipse
will be on August 5th. Cancer eclipses tend to stress home,
family and community. The Cancer Lunar eclipse is associated with
a fun event, as in this case, a family gathering - and is followed
by a Solar eclipse and a difficult family event where you say,
"aren’t we glad we had an opportunity to have some
fun before we had to become involved in all of the work associated
with the follow up Lunar eclipse?" (Leo-Aquarius).
Most astrologers are nervous about the current
changes we see in the sky patterns. An eclipse in cardinal signs
forces change to occur quickly and with minimum warning. This
eclipse is trine Uranus and folks could be extremely happy with
a change that puts an emphasis on family enterprises.
Detailed information on the financial effect
of eclipses on financial markets as well as individual corporate
charts is available in each of the Textbooks for Financial Astrology.
The Solar Eclipse New Moon
The New Moon appears in the 5th House,
and that means have fun with sports, kids, gambling on commodities,
concerts, and theater. In other words, go outdoors and play.
Equities in the entertainment category will probably be
The eclipse point will signal a change in
game plan among those financial types who see that the current
plan is about to fail with the direct motion of Pluto.
Mercury in the 5th
There are plenty of educational opportunities
for children. Of course the online school choice is viable,
especially if one parent is available to supervise the child’s
education. Folks are investigating the possibility of keeping
the kids at home next fall.
Theater, sports, and all entertainment venues
are emphasized. Expect entertainment gatherings to be fun,
exciting, and enjoyable.
The commodities markets attract gamblers. Expect
huge volatility in prices as weather complicates pricing and demand
remains totally unknown because the eclipse is falling across
Saturn in the 7th
The placement of Saturn in the New Moon
chart tells us where to look for problems. The problem is open
enemies. Everyone knows who they are and no one knows how to make
them stop rattling their sabers. Saturn alone is direct, magnifying
the problems of diplomatic inefficiency. International affairs
cause long and grievous difficulties as the decline in foreign
trade with emerging markets suffers from a number of natural disasters.
Pluto in the 10th and three surprises?
Surprise #1 - Business at every level is
a mess. CEO's are overwhelmed and do not have a clue as to what
to try to fix first. CEO’s are aggravating their boards
of directors who in desperation suggest they retire or be replaced.
Surprise #2 - Government leaders are unable to
pacify the continued dissent among the people. People perceive
that the power of government is being used against them in ways
that are out of bounds and/or just plain weird.
Surprise #3 - Institutions are out of money.
Interest/dividend payments on endowment funds have almost disappeared.
Institutional leaders are not known for their money management
Jupiter and Neptune in the 12th
Secrets, rumors, and gossip expand out
of bounds. The internet is bombarded by reports from investigators
trying their best to expose as many scandals as possible. Fraudulent
behavior has deceived the public for the past few years and while
the two planets are together they are doing their best to expose
every misapplication of funds. The proliferation of news on the
topic is confusing and folks find it difficult to trust even their
local media personnel.
as The Wounded Healer, The Maverick,and the Teacher, is
exactly conjunct Jupiter. This month he is in the mood to expose
the misdeeds of institutions. The Wounded Healer spreads his naturopathic
knowledge concerning medical issues. Chiron The Maverick expands
the ability of whistle blowers to expose the misdeeds of institutions
via the internet. Chiron The Teacher is expanding every bit of
knowledge available to the public.
Uranus in the 1st
Folks are restless. anxious and on a consumers
strike. Their cash is spent on absolute necessities. They realize
there is a need for changes in their home and community, but have
no idea where to start. Most just put their surplus cash in a
piggy bank and contemplate the vast stack of ideas sitting on
their desktop, and their E-mail.
Changes in arts and music are beginning to appear
here and there. Fashion makes an eclectic change. Styles
in clothing are getting ready for the next decade and shoppers
are choosing fashions that are distinctively different from the
past few years. For example, longer skirts and slacks,
colorful shirts, hair styles that require little bit more maintenance
and interesting shoes.
Mars in the 3rd
Mars appears in the 3rd and suggests a
great deal of interest in vehicles. Folks are reluctant
to buy new vehicles. Repairs seem to be the best solution.
However, it is difficult to convince folks to purchase any
vehicle that isn’t fully equipped with a plethora of gadgets.
People travel locally and enjoy their chatty visits with neighbors
Venus in the 3rd
The third house position of Venus indicates
that folks will spend their income to solve communications problems.
Cash is saved and spent to improve vehicles. Textbooks and educational
materials are moving quickly to the internet as thrift conscious
buyers find this to be the best solution.
Traditional Media continues to have very real
distribution problems, they know they need to adapt.
According to Goldilocks... Ferdinand
the Bull has a very bad case of jet lag as well as homesickness.
He is just moping around the Three Bears cottage and refusing
to sniff even roses that are sent daily by CNBC. He keeps looking
at his return trip ticket.
