*The New Moon in Pisces occurs
on March 7th 2008 at 12:14 PM EST. I'm using the coordinates for Washington
D.C. but the New Moon has a double stellium in Aquarius and Pisces
so make a chart for your part of the world.
New Moon forecasts show general
trends for the month, here is the overview of the month ahead.
For Washington D.C. the planets do not appear in money
houses, therefore the economic activity will attract little attention.
Every sector of the economy is regrouping and trying to staff their
businesses with dynamic leadership who know how to seize an opportunity.
Jupiter is at 16 degrees Capricorn
Jupiter at 15 degrees of any sign is an indicator of a change in economic
emphasis (Article, pg. 25 The
Textbook for Financial Astrology Book 3) This is the
point where you begin to consider sectors that relate to Taurus and
Scorpio. One of the sectors attributed to Taurus is Financial stocks(pg
30 Textbook for Financial
Astrology Book 1). The problem right now is that an investment
in this sector would suggest that you could be catching a falling
knife. This is when you look very carefully first at price history
before you set up a chart. It isn't always true but patient stock
holders will sell as the price returns to previous highs thus slowing
the upward movement of price. Case in point, the Dow Industrials
Service industry needs to retool
Police, fire and service workers have been very busy especially with
the Northern Hemisphere snow cover setting record levels. Replacement
parts for the equipment of military and police organizations will
need to be ordered. Companies that supply parts will succeed.
Transportation issues including autos will insist
on practical consideration. Transportation is experiencing a complete
overhaul. People are curious about the changes, but reluctant
to buy. They want to know that new fuels are available and convenient.
Many are concerned about repairs. Saturn is in House 3
Colds and Flu continue to cut into worker
The flu season continues with folks using every remedy available.
Pharmaceuticals and the companies that sell them are exposed to critical
research. Over the counter medicines, chicken soup, honey and
tea will help. These remedies will attract media attention.
Read the labels and invest in the companies with remedies that work.
Election prattle pauses
The challenge in this chart is the opposition of Mars to Pluto which
starts several days before the New Moon. The opposition says that
a conclusion has occurred. The markets will have a better idea about
the ticket of each political party and how they will be impacted by
International trade agreements will occupy government. All
are important, but those concerning the distribution of raw materials
will bring controversy. What is amazing is the exchange of talent
and inventions as we march into a new era of energy sustainability.
New Media wins
The New Media is taking over one click at a time. Even the local
TV news led by weather is being displaced by the internet weather
sites. People have given up schedules and waiting for the weather
forecast is not an option.
Air, ships, and rail companies will probably demand most of the attention
of investors. They need to offer efficiency and convenience to their
customers and deal with the high costs of labor and fuel.
Foreign money is moving in to pick up some bargains and spending time
at the various resorts around the country. Those with unique properties
will have a high occupancy rate especially if they can provide linguists.
Mercury leads Neptune and Venus through the ninth house
CEO's, CFO's, CIO's and their cadre of managers are playing musical
chairs. As I discussed last month the changes throughout corporate
landscape will be very newsworthy. There is a bounce in the price
of equities where the leadership of the company is changing. Traders
who carefully watch the insider trading lists as well as other corporate
changes can make a quick profit. Stock buy backs, mergers, acquisitions,
and divestitures are the games noticed by Wall Street. The New Moon
and Uranus are in the 10th
Goldilocks has dumped Santa and is playing the field
with the Seven Dwarf's mining interests. There is a rumor that
she is contemplating moving into the story of Ferdinand the Bull and
divesting herself of an interest in the Three Bears.
