New Moon in Cancer, Sunday, July 11, 2010 at 3:40 pm EDT Washington,
to view printable PDF chart.
The Cancer New Moon appears in
the 8th and is also a Solar Eclipse.
The path of an eclipse tends to leave a rip in
the earth's magnetic shield. Solar flares may penetrate the rip
in the earth’s protective shield leaving many areas especially
around the ring of fire vulnerable to natural disasters. The path
of the eclipse is over the South Pacific stretching from New Zealand
to Chili with total visibility on Easter Island (Rapanui).
It bodes further difficulties with earthquakes,
volcanic activity, tsunamis and the path falls over the area where
El Nino forms. The area is in winter season therefore agriculture
is unlikely to have problems. http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/OH/OH2010.html#SE2010Jul22T
This eclipse directly affects the public’s
opinion of the Dollar. Whether it is deflationary or inflationary
the dollar’s value will change. Inflation might pay off
the debt, but it puts every worker in a new tax bracket. Fixed
income folks will be upset, and likely to blame the Government,
the Federal Reserve, the IRS, and Wall Street. The solar eclipse
will effect quite a few commodities and their charts are available
Textbook for Financial Astrology Book IV. The issue for the
next six months will be supply and demand of basic agriculture
products. Current supplies appear to be abundant, but weather
is of course the deciding factor and in this case flooding in
critical areas could hamper supply.
During the week of the Eclipse, Pluto passes
over an area called Bernard 92, an inky black cloud in space,
whose position would be Sidereal 9 Sagittarius and Tropical 3
Capricorn. (Check Spaceweather.com
for photo on July 5, 2010. My suggestion is that it foretells
the continued drafting of a hidden agenda by folks seeking unearned
wealth. Think of Cortez when his small band of troops marched
into Mexico City.
July 21 Saturn Returns to Libra
Markets seem to prefer to creep up when Saturn
moves into Libra, but this time the market volume trends will
be low. Saturn is exalted in Libra and feels very comfortable
insisting on quality and value. Retail establishments who offer
quality and service will appeal to buyers. Retailers must provide
the public with unique products and information. Retail will find
their customers favorite colors are the metallic versions of gold,
silver and copper. (link

July 23 Jupiter moves Retrograde at
Throughout this week market volume is very slow.
Traders are nervous and unlikely to take a position for more than
an hour. Usually the market turns and goes in the opposite direction
during the week leading up to the exact date of Jupiter retrograde.
It is a good idea to take a vacation close to home during the
last two weeks of July and the first two weeks of August.
July 25 Jupiter square Pluto at 3 Aries/Capricorn
The aspect appears in the money houses 2 and
5. The exact date should indicate a turning point in the market
as optimistic Jupiter will become rather lazy during its retrograde
Myriads of scandals concerning misspent funds
are exposed by a wave of retirees blowing the whistle.
Traders can count on a volatile market throughout the next 10
days where their wits will be rewarded. The next 20 days will
find the double bottom.
July 26 Saturn opposed Uranus at zero
Fifty percent of the time the Dow is up and 50%
of the time it is down. This is the final opposition of Saturn
and Uranus. It is in Aries and promises to be geologically destructive.
It also promises political change.
The first one was November 4, 2008. The previous
four oppositions seem to have forced political changes. Usually
changes in government policy spills into the markets. As to space
weather, each opposition has produced interesting coronal mass
ejections. The April 2010 opposition produced oil spills
(careless behavior), lots of earthquakes over 6.0 and three significant
The accounting side of every business will find
their governments rewriting the rules, therefore suggesting the
accountants will be anxious to keep cash in the company’s
Here is where you start looking for stocks and
new IPO’s that benefit from the Smart Grid, liquefied gas,
or provide gadgets for home grown electricity. (link

August 3 Jupiter square Pluto
Headlines tell of even more scandals in the Financial
Markets. It has been 9 days since the previous Jupiter/Pluto
square. The domino effect continues. The American
public is now positive they have been hoodwinked and their displeasure
with “Wall Street” will spill over to markets world
wide. A few international markets will escape and we will
do our best to keep you alert to which ones on the blog.
August 4 Mars square Pluto at 3 degrees
This aspect often indicates a turning point in
a market that appears to have made its double bottom. Mars
adds fuel to the firestorm that is brewing. The problems
of Enron, Worldcom, Bernie Madoff, Lehman Brothers were the tip
of the iceberg.
The charts for the Dow 30 are available in the
or as a separate download from our shopping page. Take your
red pen and go through them circling planets that are between
2 and 5 degrees. This will give you an idea of the magnitude of
The New Moon in the 8th house (see
The Insurance business is difficult as payouts
exceed premiums. Damaged property and loss of life is the problem.
Tax revenues are a continuing problem for local governments. However,
where there are problems there are also opportunities. Governments
at every level are facing underfunded budgets and the inability
to pay employees. The public attitude is not sympathetic to their
lawmakers, therefore no new taxes, cut old taxes, and stop trying
to enforce stupid regulations.
Mercury in the 9th house
New ideas in the publishing industry are gaining attention. Monetizing
the internet is gaining acceptance as folks find the value in
instant home delivery of their favorite publications. Content
providers are taking risks that are beginning to pay dividends
encouraging their creative ideas. Networking among creative people
adds knowledge to the process. They are correct to believe there
is money to be made with good information or an excellent story.
Venus in the 10th house
Women continue to move into positions of power as they use their
income to influence commerce. News stories will feature
a plethora of women taking executive positions in large companies.
Women with entrepreneurial businesses will take the lead
in their communities. The power of the purse is in the hands of
women and they are learning to manipulate that power.
Mars in the 10th house
This position of Mars shows military victory; hopefully the Coast
Guard gains control of the oil spill. There is definite
optimism in this position of Mars. Experts finally put their
ideas together and solve problems. Possible success with
military engagements abroad. There are enough aspects during this
month to change military actions and achieve positive results.
Saturn in the 11th house
The markets turn their concern to dividends. Boards of directors
have determined that it is wise to retain as much cash as possible
in the treasury of their company. Investors afraid of tax
consequences agree. Investors are also insisting on detailed financial
reports from the companies. This is a very difficult month
for banks and other financial institutions. Business, farmers,
individuals are not interested in using borrowed money.
They are voting with their pocket books. They will spend their
profits on expansion.
Pluto in the 2nd house
Folks are working hard to increase their income. They are using
every benefit offered by their employer and community. Fraud is
rampant, be careful out there especially with employment contracts.
Neptune in the 4th house
Precipitation is a problem. Tropical storms seem to favor the
East Coast of the USA this month. Folks finally notice that
nation’s do not collect royalties from deep water oil wells.
Uranus in the 5th house
Disasters in places of entertainment make headlines. The commodities
markets are near their highs and taking profits is a good idea.
Wet weather is a challenge to crops and metals are taking some
time off celebrating new highs.
Jupiter in the 5th house
Retail for children will profit this month. Families are
very concerned about education expenses. It is a good idea to
avoid investing a lot of cash in the commodities markets.
A TransNeptunian Planet named Hades is
at zero Cancer
His presence in the sign of home and family is as unpleasant as
his name! Fortunately Chiron makes a trine from zero Pisces
and can heal the wounds with a spoonful of sugar.
Until the next New Moon Eclipse January 4, 2011
this eclipse is in effect. Expect change especially in the
world of financial institutions.
