Astrological Investing Monthly New Moon Newsletter
by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP   

My late partner, Kaye Shinker always wrote the New Moon reports. She read 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.

For two years I kept up her New Moon reports, but used New York, NY for the location of the New Moon charts instead, and focused my readings on the economic issues and political conditions affecting the USA financial market, the NYSE. I have currently discontinued regularly writing these reports due to personal issues taking up my time. However, I will try to keep up. The old ones can still be read in the archives.

The New Moon in Pisces 2015 and the Year of the Goat - The New Moon in Pisces marks the beginning of the Chinese Calendar. The exact new moon time is at 07:48 a.m. on 19-February, 2015 in China's time zone. (read the New Moon in Pisces 2015 posted on the blog)

The Spring Equinox, March 20, 2014 by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

Well, the world didn't come to end when the Myan Calendar ended last December 21, and here we are now, near the end of 2013, at yet another winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere. (It is the Summer Solstice in the Southern hemisphere).

The Idiot & The Moon FORECAST 2014 - eBook Review, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

Randall Ashbourne's goal for all traders is to increase profitability while protecting capital - and again he goes out of his way to help us all do exactly that in his eBook, Forecast 2014.  If you have been following the weekend Eye of Ra reports on the blog you already know by now that Randall makes what can be a very dry and difficult subject - Financial Astrology - easy to understand, quite interesting, and sometimes amusing!

Eclipses and their Impact on the Market - by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

Ok, so it's an eclipse...what readers on this website really want to know is
"How will an eclipse potentially impact the financial market?" Malefic Energy? Earthquakes? Increased volatility in financial markets? Influence on individual stocks? Read to find out!...

The Winter Solstice - 2013, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

The astrological energy in 2014 is powered by the Pluto - Uranus square. This spring it is exaggerated as Jupiter, the planet of expansion, sits on the Ascendant of the Washington D.C. Chart and opposes Pluto while squaring Uranus.

The nature of these planets and their signs are pitted against each other to force an outcome. The aspect is not just affecting the US, the influence is worldwide. It is quite understandable then, that the world has been embroiled in political and economic crises ...

The Autumnal (Fall) Equinox, September 22, 2013 by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

The 2013 Equinox chart for the Washington, D.C. is governed by an extreme level of challenging energy. Aquarius rises in the Equinox Chart giving Uranus and Saturn rulership over the chart. The Libran Sun in the eighth house strongly supports the planetary influence of the rulers.  Aquarius is a "fixed" sign, therefore the energy governing the chart will be a strong and enduring influence throughout the season...

The Summer Solstice, June 21, 2013, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

The Solstice Sun for Washington D.C. appears in the fourth house along with Jupiter
All fourth house matters will come into prominence during the Summer. This is the house of America's homeland. The heartland, crops, agriculture, land, mines and minerals. It is favorable for crops and the homeland in general. Home building and buying will increase.

The Spring Equinox - 2013, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

... the Sun is well placed in the first house in Aries; Neptune, co-ruler with Jupiter of the Pisces rising chart, is well placed in the 12th house in Pisces, and Jupiter's energy in Gemini is happy in the 3rd house, but Saturn and Pluto add a bit of complicated energy.

The Uranus square Pluto aspect, the most influential outer planetary aspect of the year, though not exact on the Equinox, is set off by the Moon in Cancer squaring Uranus, which then moves on to square Pluto hours later at 2:01pm...

The Idiot & The Moon FORECAST 2013 - eBook Review, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

Randall Ashbourne's goal for all traders is to increase profitability while protecting capital - and he goes out of his way to help us all do exactly that in 2013!

Just Another Winter Solstice - 2012, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

You have all heard the stories of the world coming to an end because December 21, 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar. Well, my question to anyone who says this is, "Does the world end when our calendar comes to end on December 31? Do you wake up on January 1 and celebrate a New Year?"

A Time of Holidays and Celebrations
- The Solstice chart with Sagittarius rising is ruled by Jupiter. Since Sagittarius is a mutable sign, the chart suggests a "changeable" mood in the country that lasts through March 20, 2013, when the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Aries. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance, joy and generosity.The effect of Sagittarius Rising for the first three months of 2013 should create optimism in the people of the United States and should have a positive affect in the economy. The market will reflect the mood of people. ...

The Autumnal Equinox, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

The Equinox chart is rife with difficulty. Sun in opposition to Uranus square Pluto with Mars on the Ascendant in Scorpio. Markets will go on a wild ride, gold and silver prices will rise and fall and people are in an aggressive mood. Click for reading of the chart...

The Summer Solstice, June 20, 2012, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

Chart for Washington, D.C. USA, and List of Astrological Events of the Season. This is the first day of summer in the Northern hemisphere.
Uranus square Pluto is the astrological theme for this chart and for the summer. The season begins with, and ends with, a repeat of the Uranus square Pluto aspect in September.  This aspect is MOST significant not only because it is the closest planetary aspect by degree, but because of the implication of its meaning.

What it suggests in the Washington D.C. chart is a summer filled with demonstrations and demands from the people. It's an election year, and people want change and reform in government. (The first house represents the people. Pluto is the demand for transformation and reform - the fourth house Uranus, is the restless urge for reform in their government.) for more

The spring Equinox, March 2012, by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP

The Spring Equinox occurs Tuesday March 20 2012 at 1:14 AM EDT Washington D.C. It's officially Spring and a time of celebration and new beginnings! A look at the Washington D.C. chart from the point of view of the economy.  The Equinox chart has Sagittarius rising. Jupiter rules the chart and is conjunct Venus in an Earth Grand trine with Mars and Pluto.  Reading the chart: (click on image)
"Trading the mood swings of the monthly Lunar cycle will produce three-to-six times the profit of a simple, buy-and-hold strategy. I know that’s a dramatic call, but I intend to prove it" is what Randall Ashbourne has to say about his method of stock trading using Lunar cycles.

Randall Ashbourne's goal is for you to make money in the market place.   His book, The Idiot & The Moon all by itself is fun to read;  the fact that you learn how to use some very valuable trading tools is a bonus.   I have read dozens and dozens of books on investing and this is one of the few where you actually learn something useful to take with you to the trading screen.

Mr. Ashbourne describes five very easy to use techniques that combine the principles of astrology and the techniques of technical analysis...

Using Planetary Aspects in the Financial Market (revised August 16, 2011)
by Marlene Pfeifle

"...Rule #1 for a Financial Astrologer:  do NOT think in terms of "Good = Trines and Sextiles" and that "Bad = Squares and Oppositions".   You may find yourself being surprised at what can move a stock price!"

The Winter Solstice, 2011, by Kaye Shinker

Jupiter in Pisces, 2010

Jupiter returns to Aries January 22, 2011.  Jupiter moving back and forth between signs is the reason 2010 will be a very volatile year.

Book Review by Kaye Shinker: The Master of Time, An Epos of W.D. Gann's Master Time Factor,
by Victor Ledeboer (an E-Book edition, available on our shopping page)

Mysterious and elusive W.D. Gann was the first modern master of Financial Astrology. His writings are eclectic and a challenge to decipher. HIs books are filled with tremendous incites as to market cycles and often refereed to by researchers of Financial astrology when predicting the outcome of a current cycle pattern. He was considered the Master of Time, but many researchers only describe him as the master of numbers.

Saturn's Ingress into Libra - Inventions that were rumors during the transit of Saturn in Virgo are ready to come to market.  When Saturn transits Libra the inventors put on their final artistic touches and include extra value to their product. Behind the scenes of bringing to the public a new product are a myriad of contracts, agreements, and financing deals. Initial Public Offerings will return to the stock exchanges.   For example: Apple computer has Saturn in Libra in their IPO.

The Fall Equinox 2009
by Kaye Shinker

A number of astrological events after the Equinox will influence the markets. 

Notice as we move closer to the Winter Solstice the November 15th Saturn square Pluto is followed immediately by Jupiter conjunct Neptune. 2010 has 12 major astrological aspects that not only influence money and politics but weather.   As a result Index funds will be extremely volatile.  The general trend is hopeful and the markets will try to move up. (read more...)

Pluto doesn't just end things. To quote John Marcella, "He exorcises, detoxes, purges, obliterates and makes extinct the antiquated. And yes, He allows new forms to develop, evolve, emerge and unfold."

The roof caves in according the the things ruled by the sign when Pluto makes his entrance. Pluto has started his transit of Capricorn by whacking the banking establishment.

Banks over-extended their capital reserves with exotic paper using credit to expand their power and influence to a world wide market. As with all things Plutonian they overdid it and were forced to pull back or become extinct. The next few years will find their replacement as a new business model captures rapidly expanding technology. This is not the death of Capitalism, but a reorganization of the concept. The economic system may have a new name by the time Pluto enters Pisces.

(Listed are the years Pluto transited each sign during the Twentieth Century. )

Neptune Fire Engine RED Flags - Addendum to the Textbook for Financial Astrology, Book 2, Lesson 9
by Kaye Shinker (Please print and add to your Textbook 2, Lesson 9)

During 2009 Neptune starts at 22 Aquarius, moves to 26 Aquarius, turns retrograde to 23 Aquarius, and ends the year at 24 Aquarius.  

The USA Moon in the Sibley chart is at 27 Aquarius.  The American public has a Neptune transit all of 2009 and 2010.   Liars, thieves, rogues, cheaters, fibbers, con artists will make headlines. The Better Business Bureau will probably have to hire extra staff just to keep more of this new lesson on Neptune Red Flags, ADDENDUM to Textbook 2, Lesson 9

The Spring Equinox and an Overview of the Three Months Ahead - Spring Equinox March 20, 2009 at 7:43 am EDT. The chart is set for Washington D.C. (chart image) May you live in interesting times is an ancient Chinese curse.  Interesting times are promised as we work our way to the Summer Solstice and the planets move out of a very tight stellium and spread across the zodiac.

We are about in the middle of a financial war that started on September 15, 2008, and it appears it will end after Jupiter enters Pisces. The USA is very competent at cleaning up after a war and those of you born in the sixties are born to do the heavy lifting. Stay healthy.

You learned how Venus can help you profit in this economic crisis in Kaye's article, The Money In your Chart; in this article Kaye discusses the house placement of Jupiter in your horoscope.

The house Jupiter appears in your horoscope is where you expand your knowledge, where you benefit yourself and others with your talent, and where earn the major portion of your income. The house position of Jupiter in your horoscope can give you a clue as to where you need to take a risk to increase your wealth...

The Money In your Chart
by Kaye Shinker

Your horoscope can help you profit from the economic crisis...  The house Venus appears in your horoscope is where you like to work, where you put out more than 100% and where you always have difficulty assessing the exact amount to charge for your time and energy.  The position of Venus in your horoscope can give you a clue as to how you earn money one dollar at a time.

Mercury Rx Book REview - Blood on the Street
by Kaye Shinker

In The Textbook for Financial Astrology Book 1,  I challenge the student to think of things to do while Mercury is retrograde. I suggest doing things that start with the prefix "re".

Review is on the list. So let's read a book review while we work our way through these three weeks of "re".

The War of the Gods
by Randall Ashbourne

Every few decades the planets, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto make hard aspects with each other which causes turmoil on American stock markets and a radical reshaping of society.

The latest episode of this repeating high drama began last year as Saturn made the first of a long-running series of five oppositions to Uranus.

This year, the drama goes into even higher gear with an enormous emphasis on the influence of Uranus’ home sign, Aquarius, which rules not only the stock markets, but things like volatility, shocks and sudden events.

While all of us are hoping for some relief after what has been arguably the worst year in stock market history, the relief may be short-lived.

In an excerpt from his last World At Large report, January 2009,(see archives)Randall Ashbourne reports on The Great War Of The Gods...

"In another article I wrote for this web site, (see Using Planetary Aspects In the Financial Market ), I ended with a personal author's note stating,

"Astrology is a precise market timing tool,  but it can not sensibly be used as a stand-alone strategy for financial investing...

An interested student of financial astrology wrote me just the other day asking about using special astrological financial trading software and wondered if I could recommend any for him to use.  After writing, I decided it would be worthwhile to post this information as an article here at to be used as a reference for anyone with the same question on their minds...

Trading Styles, (found on Technical Tools page)
by Marlene Pfeifle

Whether you have decided to become a trader with a particular time frame in mind for entering and exiting your trades, or you would rather be an investor with a long term buy and hold strategy, the best place to begin is with a basic understanding of the principles of financial astrology.

Styles of trading/investing can be defined in various ways and categories...

Winter Solstice, December 21, 2008 12:04 UT (Universal Time) - The Sun is at it's most southerly declination, marking this as the shortest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere this marks the longest day, and shortest night of the year.

Predictions derived from the Winter Solstice chart from the point of view of the general economy will apply to the next three months until the Spring Equinox. The horoscope is for Washington D.C. ... The overall outlook is there will be a lot of very bright, highly skilled people out of work. Before the Spring Equinox they will start putting their ideas, resumes and energy to work and find exciting new ventures that promise to keep them busy through 2009.  Nothing will be the same as the new economy begins to take hold...Mars conjunct Pluto on December 28, 2008; Saturn turns retrograde on December 31; Jupiter changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius on January 5.

In an article I wrote in February of 2008, titled The Mythical Recession, I said: "The whole recession scenario started with Jupiter conjunct Pluto on December 10th, 2007 then Jupiter moved into Capricorn on the same day as Saturn turned retrograde December 20th. As explained in The Textbook for Financial Astrology, Jupiter changing signs is difficult for markets."

Saturn retrograde keeps the accounting department in their offices and Pluto insists on destroying then rebuilding everything ruled by the sign he occupies...The Rule of Three is common to every aspect of our lives.

Jupiter In Aquarius
by Kaye Shinker

January 5, 2009 Jupiter enters Aquarius. The Twelfth Day of Christmas and all the religious groups have celebrated the holidays. We open our eyes to find Jupiter in Aquarius.

Jupiter aligns with Mars during the 2009 Transit. Remember the song "Let the Sun Shine In" with the lyrics "This is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius" … When the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars" ?OK, everyday the Moon is in the seventh house for about two hours in every place in the world...

Pluto In Capricorn
by Kaye Shinker

Pluto gave us a preview of what is going to happen when he took a brief sojourn in to Capricorn January 27, 2008-June 14, 2008.  However, using Heliocentric Astrology*, Pluto remained in the sign Capricorn and added to the confusion in the market place.  (*explanation of Heliocentric Astrology at the end of the article)Pluto entered Capricorn November 28, 2008 and is there to stay until January 24, 2024.

Astrologers will speculate on the Saturn Uranus Opposition for the next 18 months.

Both planets will move back (retrograde) and forth (direct) within 10 degrees of each other. The exact date is not as important as the months leading to the exact date of the opposition or the applying aspect. The trends are set in motion during the time before the exact date of each opposition.

The Fall Equinox
by Kaye Shinker

The Fall Equinox occurs September 22, at 11:44 am, EDT Washington D.C.

Over View of the final quarter of 2008 - Predictions:  Remember that the Earth moves in an elliptical orbit, and therefore nothing moves in a straight line.  Every number can curve back to the place where it started, including the Dow average. Therefore, check the number of the Dow on December 21, 2007, add the normal 4% annual increase and you will be pretty close to what will be the ending average.

The Dow and S&P 500 stocks will continue to be under stress...

Saturn will transit Virgo from September 3, 2007 until July 22, 2010.  The last two previous transits of Saturn through Virgo were July 27, 1978 - September 22, 1980, and May 30, 1949 - August 15, 1951. (Saturn transits a sign every 30 years, spending approximately 2 1/2 years in each sign)

Summer Solstice occurs June 20,2008 at 8:00 pm EDT. The predictions derived from the Solstice apply to the next three months until the Fall Equinox. We will look at this Summer Solstice from the point of view of the general economy...

The tone of this chart is recognizing your own personal responsibilities and applying them to your personal routine..
While I was researching Bear Sterns I looked at Goldman Sachs' chart, and as I was typing along, Abby Joseph Cohen came on CNBC today (March 20, 2008). Experience suggests that a company will send out a top girl followed in a few weeks by the CEO to reassure the investing public. Is this a corporate Red Flag?

So I revisited the charts...
Spring Equinox (an overview of the three months ahead) The Spring Equinox occurs on March 20 2008 at 1:49 am EDT. The chart is set for Washington D.C. There will be a Super New Moon May 5 and June 3, therefore, earthquakes can be very destructive especially along the USA West Coast. Saturn turns direct May 3 and Jupiter turns retrograde May 9. The accounting department will send the salesmen on vacation. Mercury retrograde begins May 26 and ends June 18, if you buy something that costs more than $10 expect it will self destruct.

The Mythical Recession,
by Kaye Shinker, February 2008

First let's describe the reality from the astrology point of view. The whole recession scenario started with Jupiter conjunct Pluto on December 10th, 2007 then Jupiter moved into Capricorn on the same day as Saturn turned retrograde December 20th. As explained in The Textbook for Financial Astrology there are some 20 aphorisms in financial astrology and Jupiter changing signs is one...

An Astrological Viewpoint of The World At Large for January, 2008 (an excerpt from the premium members report, The World At Large, January 20, 2008),
by Randall Ashbourne, January 2008

On Monday, January 21, 2008 at 4:14 am EST, we get the first of the three Jupiter trine Saturn aspects occurring between the Earth signs, Capricorn and Virgo.  I dealt with the symbolism of this at some length last week, because of the eons-old link of these two planets in accurately depicting business cycles.

A Dow Theory Bear Signal
by Randall Ashbourne, December, 2007

For the first time since September, 1999, a Bear sell signal has been thrown up by new lower Lows being recorded in both the Dow Industrials and the Dow Transports. Back in October, I introduced the basic concepts of classic Dow Theory...

Jupiter's Transit of Capricorn
by Kaye Shinker, November, 2007

Jupiter will transit Capricorn from December 19, 2007-January 7, 2009 his previous transits of Capricorn were January 1996-1997 and January 1984 - February 1985, and September 1972-February 1973. Jupiter expands the things ruled by the sign that it transits. All of this is fine until you think about it. An abundant supply means that the price will be less. Example: Apples during harvest season are cheaper than they are six months later....

The Dollar Versus the Euro
by Kaye Shinker,  November, 2007

The Dow Theory -

"Dow Theory states that price rises in the industrials – the DJI – must be accompanied by similar price rises in the transportation index – the DJT – for any rallies in the overall stock market to be sustainable.."
"When we know a stock has some good transits coming up over the next few months – or belongs to a sector where it can be expected to rise because of the impact of mundane Jupiter or Saturn, according to the principles laid out in Kaye Shinker’s Textbook for Financial Astrology– we can use technical analysis to help find a profitable Buy point..."

Using Planetary Aspects in the Financial Market - by Marlene Pfeifle - Nov 2006

Message from ET
(intercepted and translated by Kaye Shinker) Sept 2006

"This E mail is to correct the directions I sent March 12. 1930 (earth calendar) I mentioned that after passing the star Sirius you would encounter a solar system around a star known as SUN. I said that you would see a large posted sign with the letters PLUTO. It seems that the cost of maintaining the sign has caused the earthlings known as Astronomers to remove it..."

Dear Markay, What do you think about investing in gold coins. Do you know whether gold is going to make a come back? There is so much talk in the financial arena about the dollar losing all taking a dive due to the high debt in the US and that gold will go very high. I am wondering what you think. Thanks so much, Hillary

We get a lot of email not specifically addressed to Dear Markay, however some of the answers to those questions are those our other readers can benefit from. Here is one...

Question from one of our subscribers... I am having trouble grasping why certain planetary aspects are used over others that occur close together as to which of those should influence a market or change its direction of trend. Using previous highs and lows or natal charts have yet to enlighten me on which planetary combinations matter to which stocks or indices.

"...My wife and I are looking for tech stocks for 09 as Jupiter will move into Aquarius. Must be something Green solar? electric cars? Arnold just gave an electric car company tax breaks to open up in Ca. Thanks and good luck"

Dear Markay, The oil prices are on a high, but the gold prices have receded quite a bit. Will the gold prices start trending upward from now after touching support or will they be going much further down. Is the dollar strengthening a temporary phenomenon or are we in for continuing strength going forward? s krishnan

Dear Markay, Question on Mercury Rx. Kaye says and I have noticed that during this period the markets are volatile I have also noticed a Bradley turn seems to pop up during these periods as well. Monday is a holiday. If price on the DOW is to come within 1 percent of when Mercury goes Rx what price is more accurate? Fridays close? or Tuesday open? I am thinking Tuesdays open. Or might you check the ES price ? Thanks for any info you can provide on this for me.  Rick

Dear Markay,
I bought your course from the internet recently. I have skimmed the material and I was very surprised to see that you were using jupiter to natal transits to both the IPO and incorporation dates. Alphee Lavoie states that Incorporation dates don't work. Bill Meridian uses IPO dates and has published a whole book on IPO dates. I also use the IPO dates via a proprietary model. The point I'm trying to make is, you can't have 2 birthdates for a stock, just like you can't have 2 birthdates for a person. Doing this breaks on of the basic rules of astrology. So why are you using both dates? Jbadura

February 2008

Dear Markay, This is more a philosophical question, I guess - for long-term investing, like an IRA, what would you look for? I haven't studied the ETFs you had picked - the Australian & Emerging Growth - but that seemed like a possibility.

January 2008

Dear Markay, My husband just started his own small company….Are there any indicators in the natal business chart that show if the business will go well….The date is: 04 October 2007 at 09.15 am in Arta Greece (20E59, 39N09).
Waiting for your reply... Marianna ( chart attached)
PS. I don't know if that helps but the business is about selling espresso coffee and providing service of espresso coffee machines. Thank you again

Dear Markay,"Dear Markay,
In Kaye's Dow Predictions, she suggested Bill Meridian got it wrong in his July 3, 1884, chart for the DJI and she believes May 26, 1896, is the correct one. Which chart are we to use? Randall
November 2007

Dear Markay, "You have stated that Jupiter will increase demand for products in the sectors ruled by Aries and Libra. Do you think the upcoming square to Aries from Jupiter in Capricorn could point to not just a recovery of the resources sector (iron ore etc), but perhaps a renewed vigor?" Randall

Dear Markay,"Do other planetary transits to other signs energize a particular industry for transit to natal chart with reference to page 18 of The Textbook For Financial Astrology, on the "what do the planets represent?"  Flor

May 2007

Q. Dear Markay, Some people say the bubble in China will burst this year (I'm one of them), others say their economy will continue expanding until next year due to the Olympics. Is there an astrological explanation?

...One more question: is it better to buy/make an investment/start a business or something when Jupiter is Rx or Venus is Rx? I know that ideally both should be direct, but when having to choose one or the other direct, which one is better to be direct?

May 2007

Q. Dear Markay, "Most IPO's have the Sun in the 11th house of their chart because the exchanges open at 9:30 am Eastern Time. When starting a small business is it wise to have the Sun in the 11th?"
