thought I would give you all an astrological hand at planning
your summer vacations. This should be a terrific summer with lots
of weather and plenty of adventure. Remember Mother Nature is
in charge and our job is to have an adventure.
take a look at the signs Mars will transit. From
now until the end of June Mars is in Aries and you will be full
of energy and ready to try new thrills. Mars transits Taurus from
the end of June and through July so you will feel like building
sand castles and lounging on the veranda. Mars transits Gemini
through August so you'll need to find books to read, friends who
chat and plenty of minutes on your cell phone.
start the summer with Mercury retrograde. Mercury
is RX from June-15-July 10. OK, you love adventure and don't
mind loosing your stuff then start you vacation June 15. It's
like a guaranteed adventure. However, save yourself a few headaches
right now. Make a duplicate record of your passport, your
credit card number and buy travelers checks. Assume you'll lose
everything and nothing will get lost.
for quiet fun. July 10- July 27 is the big grace
period this summer. If you have a high stress day job, this
is the best time to schedule a holiday. Nothing is happening
and you can actually enjoy the countryside or the beach.
Mars in Taurus will allow you to feel lazy and if you fall asleep
reading the new Harry Potter book you won't mind.
Venus Retrograde Forget Summer Love. July
27- Sept 8 Venus is Retrograde which means forget finding summer
love, avoid shopping, and watch those cell phone minutes. If
you are a full time astrologer, turn off the cell phone and write
letters to your clients. Read your Harry Potter book, go
to the movies, take your camera sightseeing and it's ok to draw
pictures on napkins and enjoy a concert. Your money wants to stay
safely hidden in your savings account. You will be surprised
by your thrifty ways. You will also be surprised at how
much fun you can have without spending a cent.
Ok now to my friends who trade the markets. Same
schedule different suggestions!
15-July 10 Mercury retrograde. All of our trading
friends work hard and deserve the three 21 day vacations that
is the gift from the universe other wise known as Mercury RX.
This will be the best time to
take a vacation from the market, put in your stops and develop
Wall Street Amnesia. The Dow starts and ends the Mercury Rx cycle
within 1% about 80% of the time.
is another reason to develop Wall Street Amnesia on this particular
Rx cycle. Monday, June 25 will be the third time Saturn opposes
Neptune. Let's review the previous Saturn Neptune oppositions.
The Dow moved only a few points August 31 when the first time
Mercury was retrograde February 28 the next time, the aspect was
exact, and leading up to the exact aspect the Dow dipped 400 points
or 3+%. The market remained confused until April.
could expect the market will react with confusion again. This
is why I suggest your stops should be firmly placed. Mercury
will turn direct you could have a bit of cash to play with when
you return to your computer on July 10.
July 10- July 27 Time to Get 'er Done
Work your timing trigger fingers to the bone from July 10 through
July 27. Do diligent research and check the Moon's position.
You will find yourself able to finish projects in a hurry
and avoid doing the same thing twice.
July 27- Sept 8
Save yourself a lot of heart ache and probably some money. Venus
turns retrograde July 27. Not a good time to start a romance,
ask for a raise, or start a new project. This cycle is best defined
as there is no such thing as a bargain.
need to be aware that while Venus is retrograde, Jupiter will
turn direct Aug. 7. and Saturn is changing signs. Trends
and fashion are changing. It is not a pretty picture especially
for retail. New fads will take over the markets and only
your favorite teenager has a clue as to exactly which ones will
Jupiter Direct August 7 will raise the markets especially the
volume. It will be a very select group that benefits.
the July and August New Moon report for specific suggestions.
Saturn changing signs will be discussed several times during the
next few New Moon reports.
These cycles are the first tier of all other cycles. In addition
to my suggestion to read Harry Potter, I might add that you add
The Textbooks for Financial Astrology
to your list.
The Textbook for Financial Astrology Book 1 discusses in detail
Mercury and Venus Retrograde. Textbook 2 discusses Jupiter
and Saturn direct, retrograde and changing signs.
As a matter of fact you could even take a class starting in August.
I will attend the Project Hindsight conclave ( late July)
and I always return with interesting ideas from the ancient Greek
