Memoriam Kaye Shinker, March
18, 1940 - November 18, 2011. The astrological
world has lost a great teacher who contributed much
to the study of financial astrology as well as the world
in which she lived.
It is with deep sorrow that I share the sad news that
my friend and business partner in Astrological Investing,
Kaye Shinker, passed from this world November 18, 2011.
Kaye loved teaching, it was her joy, her passion
to share with others what she knew. We will all miss
At the end of her life she
was actively teaching students of financial astrology,
writing articles for the web site, blogging on the astrologicalinvesting
blog, traveling for speaking engagements and personal
consulting. Kaye had been elected Director
for Education on the NCGR Board and was serving on the
NCGR-PAA Board of Examiners.
BIO - Kaye
was born March 18, 1940 4:44 pm in Portsmouth, Ohio.
She attended the University of Illinois and graduated
from Roosevelt University in Chicago, although she said
her real education was from 18.5 years of owning a printing
business with her husband in Chicago. They retired at
age 55. Three weeks later started a new business
racing thoroughbred horses. Kaye earned the NCGR
Level IV Certification in Counseling and Education as
well as the ISAR CAP Certification. Kaye loved
to talk about everyone's favorite subject - money -
the marketplace, where to look for bargains and what

am basically an intermediate trader. Though I use astrology
in my trading, it is very important for me as a trader
to pay attention to technical charts." Marley
Astrologer Marlene Pfeifle approaches the market from
a different point of view than her former partner Kaye
Shinker. Kaye was her first financial astrology teacher
who always pointed out that selecting equities that
will outperform the market over the long term and slowly
gain in valuation was what she wanted to teach her students.
However, with the understanding that one needs to select
fundamentally strong stocks in the financial sectors
receiving dynamic Jupiter transits, Marley uses both
technical and geocosmic analysis and buys and holds
for short to intermediate periods of time. Marley
is an active intermediate trader and likes to trade
equities that are in the sector Jupiter is transiting,
and the S&P ETF, SPY.
About the New Moon Newsletter - In Lesson Eight, titled
Mundane Astrology, in The
Textbook for Financial Astrology, Book 4, Kaye Shinker
outlined how to read a New Moon chart. Kaye always
read the New Moon chart from the point of view of Washington
D.C. and gave predictions in the newsletters foretelling
events which included economic, political, sociological,
entrepreneurial, and meteorological conditions.
Marley's New Moon reports are different. Using New York,
NY for the location of the New Moon chart instead, she
focuses on the economic issues and political conditions
affecting the financial market.
"In my reading
I'll interpret the house placement of the New Moon
for the NYSE and major aspects going on as represented
in the chart.
However, knowing how
astrology actually coincides with market cycles and
understanding the market trend will help you become
more profitable in the market - more so than just
reading transits in a mundane horoscope. Knowing
both astrology and technical aspects is your best
