Cancer Suns - Pluto and Uranus are making challenging aspects
for all Cardinal signs in 2012
Summer is here and it is hot, hot, hot - unless you live
in the UK where it is cloudy and wet, wet, wet! Global weather
certainly has seen it's extremes, and this will continue throughout
the summer season.
This year can bring difficult and unexpected changes in your
especially those Cancers who have birthdays at the end of June
and the early days of July.

Uranus is in
the fourth house of the chart suggesting the unusual, disruptive,
destructive weather we have been having. "One never
really can predict Uranus energy as it represents what is unexpected
- Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and loss of electricity
due to the unusual weather are possible."

The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The Optimists...
Mars in the sixth house trine Jupiter in the 2nd -
can't help but believe these risk takers are walking a tight rope.
Mars is involved in a T-square with Uranus and Pluto.
Alone, Mars in opposition to Uranus has received a bad
but involve Pluto and it certainly has the
potential to live up to it! Read Randall Ashbourne's recent

Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Cancer Chart
New Moon in the 4th house, unaspected. In
fact, six planets in this chart are not involved in a
major transiting planetary aspect. It's not unusual to
have a few planets unaspected in these mundane charts - because
one needs to consider only close waxing aspects - however, this
month there is more than usual.
Unaspected planets are free to act with pure archetypical energy,
unfiltered and unaffected by the other planets. But because
they lack dynamic energy prompted by hard aspects, or have the
grace of easy aspects it's hard to predict if they will act
The New Moon is near the last degrees of Cancer and the
Moon goes void of course after making the conjunction with the
Cancer Sun. The market really doesn't know what to expect
this month - is the Fed going to offer QE3 or not? Will
the European banks ease again? What is happening
in Asia? Looking at technical charts appearing somewhat
positive while the world’s economies appear in trouble,
we are not really ready to trust this market.
In Mundane Astrology the New Moon in the fourth house is considered
favorable for land and real estate, and good for crops; generally
favorable for the opposing party in government, and unfavorable
for the current government in power.
Venus, ruler of the Taurus rising chart, is in the 2nd house
along with Jupiter. But not closely involved with other
planets either! The waning conjunction with Jupiter and
waning trine to Mars are aspects that have happened before the
new Moon, and not worth considering after the fact.
However, Venus in the second house is a favorable position,
so this New Moon has the potential to live up to the New Moon
Promise of a temporary high at the time of the New Moon relative
to the direction the market is trending.
Mercury is Retrograde in the fifth house - Again, here
we have a planet not involved in any major aspects! No
news is good news? REally??? The stationing retrograde
has occurred on the 15th. (Read the HEAD'S UP section
Mars in the sixth house - Opposing Uranus in the twelfth
house and Square Pluto in the ninth
Pluto square Uranus is THE most significant and dominating
aspect of the summer. Mars is setting this aspect off with an
opposition from the sixth house. With Uranus we can expect only
the unexpected - if we can manage that! Uranus traveling through
a veiled and mysterious space in the chart, the twelfth house
suggests hospitals, charitable institutions, and prisons are
the areas that may be highlighted. With Pluto in
Capricorn we can pretty much be assured the unexpected events
will have something to do with money, debt, and world governments.
Saturn in the sixth house - the waning square with the
Moon and Sun has past - Frustrated trade union workers
and unacceptable unemployment numbers... the health of the economy
and the bleak job picture is a serious concern. Where
are the jobs? The Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Health
Care Act, but many wonder "is it really affordable?"
The US election has become a referendum on the health of the
economy and Obama's signature legislative act.
Neptune in the eleventh house - Yet ANOTHER planet
not in aspect with another planet in the chart! There
isn't much possibility of the legislative body in government
getting anything done
Reading a mundane horoscope for the lunar month gives us
a broad picture of the astrological landscape we expect to encounter
during the month. Astrological energy affects the market,
however, astrology is a timing tool to use - knowing the potential
of planetary cycles and what the technical charts tell us is our
best bet for successful trading. We need to see the whole picture.

My bad - Last month I alerted ya'll to Neptune
square Jupiter on June 25
I said, "In all probability there will be higher
fuel prices and an increase in demand for crude oil.
The zodiac sign Pisces, and the planets Jupiter and Neptune all
have "rulership" over crude oil in modern astrology. A
square aspect suggests either an increased demand or an decrease
in supply of what the planets rule. Considering the Uranus square
Pluto aspect on the 24th and the current world's political atmosphere,
prepare for higher fuel prices." I
was wrong - prices went lower.
However, I am correct about the square aspect with Jupiter. A
Jupiter square does promise either an increase in demand and/or
decrease in supply of what the planets and signs signify. In
this case, with both Jupiter and Neptune ruling oil, it is the
oil industry. Supply has become greater than demand
because of a weak world economy. I was considering the world's
political atmosphere in my prediction and didn't factor in the
condition of a weak global economy. This is a case of the
astrology being right, but the astrologer missing the mark.

Moon Phases (for our subscribers who trade
using phases of the Moon)
New Moon July 19 - 1st quarter Moon,
July 26; Full Moon, Aug. 1; Last
quarter Moon, Aug. 9; Next New Moon,
Note: New Moon periods
tend to be a positive time for the markets, often coinciding with
temporary highs relative to the direction the market is trending.
There are many of you who have been trading with the phases
of the Moon and having much success; and you know by reading Randall's
The Idiot and the Moon that there are times when it doesn't always
work out that way! (Read Randall Ashbourne's article, The

HEADS UP! - Critical Astrological
Transits this Lunar Month -
July 13 Uranus retrograde at 8° 32' Aries
- This is an "erratic signature" according to Raymond
Merriman. However, traders need to be aware that reversals can
occur with Uranus rx.
July 15 Mercury retrograde at 12°32' Leo
What is expected in the market - Volatility! Sharp
swings can occur during the time Mercury goes rx.
It is the stations - Mercury changing directions, retrograde
and direct - that one needs to be aware of. A few
days before, during and a few days after extreme volatility
Mercury remains rx during this entire lunar month going
direct August 8th, the day before the Last Quarter Moon.
On the 6th, 7th and the 8th the Moon will be in Aries,
then will ingress into to Taurus on the 9th. Randall Ashbourne
in his article on the blog, Using
Daily Aspect Calendars to Time Intraday Trades, writes,
"Moon in ARIES - The effect is aggressive and the
Moon travelling in Aries can start a move in a direction
likely to last for a couple of days. Since Uranus is now
in Aries, the Moon and Uranus will be in the same section
of the sky, a conjunction, and the action is likely to be
both sudden and surprising."
Raymond Merriman, in his book, The
Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing -Solar/Lunar Correlations
to Short Term Trading Reversals states, "...When
the Moon is in Aries, there is a greater than normal probability
that a crest will form . Traders are advised to look for
an opportunity to sell short, if indeed prices are rallying
into this time frame."
I would add to all that, because Mercury will be stationing
direct and it is even more probable during this time.
On a more personal note - Now is the time to rest
and relax. Mercury goes retrograde three or four times
a year giving us opportunities to take time off or at least
the time to catch up on things. It is a perfect
time to research, review and reevaluate. Finish up projects
on the back burner. Doing things that start with the prefix
"re" is what we astrologers like to tell you to
do during retrograde Mercury. Do the REpairs
you have been putting off. REmember to back up your computer!
It is a terrible time to start a new project, sign letters/contracts,
or make major purchases. Misinterpreted communications make
a mess of things during Mercury RX. Also, glitches
can occur with trading software and the internet, so this
is a time to REally focus when in the market.
Be very, very careful when pressing the buy/sell button
when trading. I know personally of a trader who thought
he was buying when he was selling! It turned out ok
after a LOT of agonizing over what he had done - Mercury
retrograde is quite a trickster!
Studies have proven that stocks in a sector ruled by the
zodiac sign that Jupiter is transiting in do well, and stocks
that are ruled by the zodiac sign that Saturn is transiting
in pull back. Now is the time to look at stocks that
typically do well when Jupiter is in Gemini. In September
we need to reevaluate Stocks in the Scorpio sector as Saturn
ingresses into Scorpio October 5.

"NEW CYCLE AFFECTS NEWS STORIES
Last month we said News Corp. (NWS) would make the headlines
in June. The shareholders have just voted to split NWS into
two companies, spinning off the publishing businesses from
the television and film units which are the company’s
main sources of revenue. News Corp. owns the Wall Street
Journal, Barron’s, New York Post, Dow Jones Company
and the Fox TV channel. Both companies (NWS & NWSA)
will fit the new favored sectors (Media and Entertainment)
unlike Sara Lee’s pending breakup into two companies,
Hillshire Brands and D.E. Master Blenders 1753, which are
part of the out-of-favor Food/Beverage sector."
