A second new Moon in Gemini? Yes, here
we are at the second new Moon in Gemini this year. As
I stated in the last New Moon Newsletter, two new Moons
doesn't happen often in the sign of the twins, or any
of the signs. Only when a new Moon is at the
very earliest degree of a sign can it happen. The Moon's
cycle is 28 1/2 days.
how did the solar eclipse of May 20 and the full Moon eclipse
of June 4 work out for you?
Remember, the influence of an eclipse is long lasting! The
influence of eclipse energy can dramatically reappear as
transiting planets aspect the degree of the eclipse and
other planetary positions in the eclipse chart.
Watch for planets transiting 0° and 14 °mutable
- Mars will often reactivate the energy of an
eclipse. These eclipses took place in Gemini, so watch
Mercury transits as well.
Stocks that have first trade or IPO charts with planets
within 5 degrees of 0° and 14° in mutable signs.
(Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are under the
influence of these eclipses.
I mentioned in the last newsletter that the IPO
chart of Verizon (VZ) has Jupiter at 0° Gemini.
VZ is in the "Gemini Sector" (governed by Gemini
and the planet Mercury) VZ has a very promising year
as Jupiter transits Gemini.

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
Moods of the Moon - Trading the Mood Swings of the Monthly
Lunar Cycle be sure to purchase his eBook,
Idiot & the Moon )
The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The
Mars in the first house, waxing sextile to chart ruler,
Mercury, and Jupiter conjunct the Mid Heaven -
This aspect, along with Venus, and the new Moon transiting
the 10th house (Jupiter makes a conjunction to the mid
heaven at the time of the new Moon) is going to
bring out the courageous and the optimists!
IF you are a risk taker, then you may
very well may get your kicks taking a long position in
the S&P right in the third quarter Moon period and
up to the new Moon this lunar month.
HOWEVER! This is definitely NOT a time to
be long in the market if you are faint of heart!!!
And why I said if you are a risk taker, you
very well may get your kicks being long in the market
on the new Moon. Warning - the Mars aspect is waxing,
and the angles of the chart move swiftly. Have an exit
Saturn in the second house applying in a hard
aspect with new Moon chart ruler, Mercury - This
is an indicator of dire economic news. Earnings
reports may disappoint, or if not, they may be overshadowed
by European economic and political news.
Pluto in the fifth house square Uranus in the
eighth house - THE MOST significant and dominating
aspect in the chart! This is the first of a series of
waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during 2012 -
March 2015. According to Raymond Merriman in his
book, Forecast 2012, "..this is the
most challenging time for world leaders to resolve their
economic and political crises.." (Read the Heads
Up section below where I discuss Pluto square Uranus further.)
Neptune in the sixth house - Trade unions
and workers are the focus both here and abroad. Unacceptable
unemployment numbers and the health of the economy take
a toll in the markets.
Venus and the new Moon in the tenth house, Jupiter
conjunct MC - A promising new Moon, but fleeting.
Be careful with Uranus square Pluto and the upcoming Neptune
square Jupiter aspect. (discussed below in Head's Up!)
Mercury in the eleventh house square Saturn -
Discussions of new restrictive regulations on
business create uncertainty in the market.
Knowing how astrology actually coincides with market cycles
and the market trend will help you become more profitable
in the market - much more so than a reading of transits in
a mundane horoscope. Knowing what the outlook for the lunar
month gives one a broad picture of the potential astrological
energy that can affect the market, however, knowing both astrology
and technical aspects is your best bet for successful trading.
Remember the old adage, "the trend is your friend".

Venus remains retrograde until June 27 -
Venus rules money, and monetary policy decisions made will
be reevaluated which in turn create an ever- changing environment
of unpredictability in the market. Reiterating
last month's warning of what to expect with Venus retrograde,
June 7th's opening gap and the disappointing close is an
example of that. Within minutes of the opening, the
Dow industrials were over 150 points higher than Wednesday’s
287-point gain. This gap was the result of news that China’s
central bank's would cut interest rates for the first time
in four years; AND the hopeful anticipation of Fed Chairman
Ben Bernanke to announce QE3 in the near future.
However Bernanke failed to outline any new stimulus plans
and within an hour of the close, profit-taking took back
almost all of the early gains.
On a personal note, during Venus retrograde it is wise not
to purchase large ticket items - very often one has "buyers
remorse" after Venus turns direct. This goes for relationship
decisions as well since Venus also rules relationships.
June 11 - Jupiter in Gemini - At the time
of writing this newsletter I am in the process of writing
an article on Jupiter in Gemini for the web site. In the
meantime, read Randall Ashbourne's article, Jupiter's
cycle and its effects on Wall Street.
if it is a Bear or Bull market, there are always stocks
that outperform. 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.

(including social media), Telecommunication, Transportation
(airline, railroad, truck & auto), Education, Leisure,

BUYS NEWSPAPERS! Some are
questioning if Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway has
finally ‘lost it’, that being his magic touch.
Then again, he may have been ‘ahead of the curve’
when his fund purchased 63 newspapers from Media General

June 19 – Second New Moon in Gemini
- Is this a Blue Moon? The second full Moon in
an calendar month - not in a zodiac sign - is
called a Blue Moon. The expression
"Once in a Blue Moon", according
to the Farmers Almanac, was first noted back in
1821 and refers to occurrences that are uncommon,
though not truly rare. There seems to have
been no significant study proving that the second
new moon in a zodiac sign has any more consequence
than a typical new Moon.
June 19 & 20 - The Summer Solstice
(new Moon) & Mercury square
Saturn, June 20 - Mercury square Saturn
usually shakes up the market with troublesome
news for the beginning of summer. (check the
web site for my upcoming article, The
Summer Solstice, 2012, which will
be posted immediately after the New Moon.)
June 24 - Uranus square Pluto at 8°
Capricorn - This is the first of a series
of waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during
2012 - March 2015. According to Raymond Merriman
in his book, Forecast 2012, "..this
is the most challenging time for world leaders
to resolve their economic and political crises.
In such a venerable climate, Gold is apt to remain
a safe haven. Investors and speculators will seek
protection by diversifying their portfolios with
precious metals. A time that stands out in 2012
is the last tens days of June."
June 25 - Neptune square Jupiter -
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.
June 27 - Venus Direct - This is important
because Venus rules money and the value of things.
We saw what happened in the market the day Venus
turned retrograde - Venus direct can have the
very same sort of implications. Venus direct often
correlates with a reversal in the market.
July 18 - New Moon in Cancer
a great month! Marlene Pfeifle
