October 13th, Jupiter Direct
(review from Virgo New Moon report)
Jupiter turns direct on October 13 at 17 degrees Aquarius.
The market signature is a reversal; therefore, check
your stops. Jupiter tends to give an abundant supply
of things ruled by the sign he transits. Aquarius rules
electronic stuff and usually an abundant supply brings
down price. For example: computers have been cheaper
during the past year. This trend will accelerate through
the holidays as Jupiter speeds up in motion. Jupiter
moves to Pisces in January 2010, creating an abundant
supply of liquids and drugs. Each Textbook
for Financial Astrology describes this astrological
phenomena and suggest sectors where there will be supply
Remember: Pluto is in moving
forward in Capricorn. Pluto's forward motion
reveals scandalous behavior. It is a paradigm shift
and absolutely nothing is working the way it used to,
not even the Sun. Pluto forward motion in 2008
presaged the fall of Lehman Brothers. Pluto warning:
No institution is too big or too small to fail. If you
are investing you need the charts of individual companies.
Technical market indicators do not give clues as to
how things are working behind the scenes.
October 17th, Mars enters Leo
Mars moves into Leo for an 8 month visit, October 17,
2009-June 7, 2010. In this sign Mars represents
creativity, generosity and a sense of pride that may
become pompous. Mars adds volatility to the sectors
ruled by Leo. The emphasis for the next eight months
will be gold, theater, entertainment, children and gambling.
Commodity exchanges everywhere will be very busy trading
contracts and earning money for their shareholders.
October 29th, Saturn enters
The sign Saturn transits is where we find problems.
Saturn moves to Libra suggesting the sectors where there
will be problems in the economy are the consumer, high
end retail and apparel. The consumer plans to be very
thrifty shopping only replacing required items and purchasing
fewer bits of clothing because they are staying home.
Saturn in Libra likes to level the playing field. Computers
level the playing field. The trend of commuting to work
through the kitchen will continue.
Throughout the transit of Libra discussion
will center of fairness. Rules/laws are made, but enforcement
is extremely difficult. With local law enforcement stretched
and under funded, enforcement of traffic laws will be
a municipal challenge even with cameras.
October 31st Happy Halloween
Here in Cajun Country Halloween is considered a dress
rehearsal for Mardi Gras.
November 4th, Neptune Direct
Neptune turns direct at 1:10 p.m EST, and statistically
the direct motion has the effect on the market of signaling
the end of a down turn and, therefore, a buy signal.
It often signals a time when the world of merchandising
and advertising present some very creative ideas to
the public. In Aquarius you will find these ads first
on your digital toys. Watch new ways to monetize the
internet during the next six months. Content providers
must be paid or they quit providing content.
November 15th, Saturn Square
The aspect is in effect for several weeks before and
after the exact date. It tends to reverse markets,
but rarely more than 5%.
This square forces changes in leadership
of corporations all the way down to small businesses.
Saturn is in Libra and insists on a level playing field
and everyone must be treated equally. Pluto is
in Capricorn and folks are not pleased with institutional
leadership and they are not pleased with even their
own clubs. They will insist on change or withdraw
their support. The excuse is fairness, but the
reason is failure of the old boy/girl network when replacing
The taxpayers are not pleased and states
with elections this month will be the first to notice.
Moon appears in the 3rd house - October 18th (Non
USA members please set the New Moon chart for the capital
of your country and note the house position of the New
Moon - Textbook
4, page 30 will help you interpret the
new moon for your own country)
The New Moon in the third house means
there will be an emphasis on neighborhoods, elementary
education, transportation and communication. Mainstream
media has huge monetary problems and partnerships with
the new media continues to make headlines. Huge meetings
and long discussions will center around the concept
that content is everything and the web has to find ways
to monetize it. Stocks involved in these discussions
will be under pressure as various communications companies
try to position themselves for valuable content.
When you reset the New Moon chart for
California the Libra stellium falls in the 4th house.
Astro-meteorologists would suggest increased earthquake
activity around the New Moon. Uranus and Neptune will
move into a semi-sextile, therefore the Mid-west will
have too much precipitation.
Saturn in the Second House.
Transiting the final degrees of Virgo, Saturn is trying
to present the various monetary challenges in the world
of health care. Earned income continues to decrease
and therefore tax revenues are falling. Every level
of government is complaining. It is a case of financial
stagnation. No one wants to take financial risks and
the savings rate continues to climb. Thrifty shoppers
start stashing supplies for the holiday season.
Venus in the Third House
Discussions concerning vehicles will dominate. Folks
are very serious about using their money to acquire
useful vehicles and avoid the luxury styles. Earned
income is spent on necessities and left over cash is
saved. Investments will be conservative with gambles
on risky ventures at a minimum.
Mercury in the Third House
The publishing industry is in the midst of a huge overhaul
of ways to deliver the written word. They have formed
new partnerships with the electronic delivery systems
as well as ways to share content. There is a great deal
of concern about local travel and folks are finding
more efficient ways to move from here to there. New
partnerships in the auto industry will make headlines
in the financial news.
Pluto in the Fifth House
Exposure of illegal risks by hedge funds and even some
mutual funds continues. Many state sponsored retirement
funds were invested in risky equities and their managers
will have the opportunity to discuss the investments
with government officials. Expect lower retirement payments
for retired state employees. Institutions with endowment
income will have to take major budget cuts.
School budgets are stretched and parents
find any suggestion of changing the school year on length
of daily instruction impossible to fund.
Jupiter in the Seventh House
Often Jupiter here indicates a plethora of new IPO's
coming to market. Most are well received. In this case
those with connections to the electronic industries
will find the best reception. Negotiations concerning
foreign trade will be successful especially concerning
vehicles. Boutique investment firms and banks are proliferating.
Neptune in the Seventh House
The number two export of the USA is movies/content.
This rather unique feature of the American economy will
make headlines as various business merge, divest and
spin off their media components. Electronics delivers
stories to the audiences of the world. Distribution
of content must be creative as they rearrange their
systems. Contracts with talent must be carefully renegotiated.
New software applications as well as
recombined old software makes it possible to add new
Uranus in the Eighth House
Please pass the idea around to government officials
looking for unique ways to tax the wages of your favorite
workers. Insurance is also looking for unique ideas
as folks find paying premiums a luxury and not a necessity.
Mars in the Twelfth House
Mars starts its 8 month transit of Leo with his energy
focused on using creativity to make the best use of
funds delegated to governments and institutions. Prominent
officials and leaders of public institutions are forced
to put some energy into their work. Technology that
they rely on to keep the public safe is not working
"Mama Bear did Papa Bear authorize
a greenhouse on the roof of the cottage? Please ask
him if I should let these workers use the back stairs."
Goldilocks had the speaker phone on
so Ferdinand could share the conversation.
Papa Bear picked up the phone.
"Baby Bear loves Washington D.C.
Mama Bear has a kiosk ready to set up on the Mall, so
I thought it would be OK if CNBC planted their green
shoots on the roof of the cottage."
"Oh, Ferdinand you wouldn't mind
mowing the grass would you?"
“Not a problem Papa Bear, but
I was hoping to go home to Spain as soon as I could
reserve a spot on one of the airplanes flying horses
over from Europe for the Breeders Cup. However, Goldilocks
has had all kinds of trouble booking a flight out of
Goldilocks moved closer to the speaker
phone. “Papa Bear, an invitation for all of us
to Dick Whittington's cat's wedding arrived today. It
will be Valentines Day. It's in India at his school
for kittens. It sounds so romantic."
Papa Bear growled and handed Mama Bear
the cell phone.
Mama Bear shared Goldilocks' excitement
then asked her to take a few days to visit them in Washington
