to give the farms too much erratic weather to complete planting.

New Moon will highlight their difficulties and thus create a pessimistic
equity prices for some.

enjoy less pressure and demand for service. Folks are pleased
with their work and unlikely to complain. Hospitals have fewer
patients and have time to improve their facilities.

amount of individual energy is devoted to deciphering bank and
credit card charges. Folks will protest and change institutions
if necessary. Others are spending money to make money. This Taurus

and appears in the ninth. The sub-prime mess continues bringing
in the final groups of foreign investors. It continues to be difficult

fair trade agreements will be signed. Reality economics is more
powerful and the international trade online will add to the reasons
to clarify treaty agreements.

trade. Oil is probably the number one topic, but it is to the
point of being impractical and the paradigm energy shift is required.
Businesses that notice the required need to find alternate energy
sources will have the edge on successful pricing power or pricing
of power. Neptune is in Aquarius and it is creative with things
that plug into electricity. Example: My Ranch supply store has
half an aisle devoted to portable solar panels to electrify fences.
Last year they had three samples. Price points $80-$170. My electric
for fences, about $20 per month.

change the governance of companies since shareholders are unhappy
with results and communications concerning results. This theme
has been present since February. Executive Search service companies
will be busy. Uranus is in the Tenth and insists on change
Dividends will be paid
Venus is in the eleventh suggesting that companies will continue
to pay dividends and many will surprise investors who believe
business is in recession. Look closely at the earnings per share
history of any stocks you might choose to buy.

every letter even though he is a politician.
