The New Moon in Aries, April 3, 2011 at 10:32 am EDT Washington D.C.

Happy Passover April 19th
Happy Earth Day April 22nd
Happy Easter April 24th

In the Aries New Moon Chart - Notice the Aries stellium in the chart (above) and also note that Jupiter is surrounded by all of his best buddies! He is ready for battle and will expand the battle ground stage wherever possible.  From the point of view of the Sun, the Earth and Saturn are on one side with Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune pulling on the other side.  The battle lines are drawn and the Sun will try to intercept the slings and arrows of both sides.   This is the end of the 10 year battle that began with the Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus, May 28, 2000.   Solar flares will be the obvious battle wounds. With Mercury retrograde, treaties and cease fires will be short lived.

Mars and Uranus are conjunct a few hours after the New Moon. Mars/Uranus aspects are known for their short temper. News concerning management changes at every level of business as well as government will be news worthy. Neptune’s move into Pisces on April 4 exposes dishonest managers and others in a position of trust. The public will express their anger at being hoodwinked. The issues that concern the public continue to be energy and high commodity prices. Folks are not pleased that they are forced to reconsider their personal budgets.

Banks are changing their rules; it is very important to understand these new rules then take advantage of only the ones that will be profitable.  Be especially wary of banking products that offer convenience for a fee.  One result of the change will be start-up financial groups where an unhappy public will choose to deposit their investment funds.

Bubble Alert for the next 3 months! (read "Challenge, Find The Bubble" on the Blog at )

March 30th Mercury Retrograde at 24 Aries

Ok, time to take a vacation from the world of investing and trading.  It is a good time to do things that begin with the prefix “re”.   Suggestions: Repair, rewrite, recharge, relax and reward.  It is an excellent time to clean the computer’s desktop, the desk, the room, and even the environment.  Double check every appointment and do not shop without a list or a cell phone.  This is not a good time to purchase anything that costs more than $20 (inflation is catching up with my directive, which used to be $10.00) and do not sign any contracts.

Statistically, 90% of the time the Dow will be at about the same number when Mercury turns Direct as it was when Mercury turned Retrograde.

April 4th Neptune enters Pisces (click to read article, Neptune in Pisces)

Neptune’s transit of Pisces signals upsets in organized religion because of changes in communications as well as political boundaries. Gold mines are discovered and, therefore, the abundance of supply decreases its value.  New banking systems are invented when Neptune transits Pisces.  Neptune will only transit Pisces for 5 months before it retrogrades back to Aquarius.  Record your investment ideas during this brief transit because they could become very viable when Neptune returns to Pisces, February 4, 2012.

April 9th Pluto Retrograde at 7 Capricorn

Pluto tends to reverse the market trend about 2 weeks before he makes a Retrograde station.  Statistically this happens 9 out of 10 times.

Pluto retrograde is accident prone, therefore watch the safety standards in your own environment and stay aware of the news for stocks that you own.  Now is the time to research dividend paying stocks to place in your retirement portfolio.

April 18th Super Full Moon

We have a Super Moon when the moon is closest to the earth (perigee) at the same time as a Full or New Moon.  This one will not be as brilliant as the one on March 19, 2011, but it will create weather news.  Weather will be a difficult problem and usually the bad weather starts about 3 days before the Full Moon.  Super Moons tend to ignite the Ring of Fire with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  However, we can also expect activity in the area where the January 4th eclipse was visible.

April 23 Mercury direct at 12 Aries - YEAH Shopping!

The New Moon appears in the 11th House(Non USA members please set the New Moon chart for the capital of your country and note the house position of the New Moon - Textbook 4,  page 30 will help you interpret the new moon for your own country) 

Financial markets will focus on dividends, bonuses, and one time pay outs.  Companies will buy back their stocks and many will find clever ways to reward shareholders.  This is a month that will focus on income from investments as well as bonuses due from employers.  People will consider ways to capitalize on their hobbies.  Their objective is to add future income and avoid the risk of inflation.   It is a good time to outline plans for the year ahead and consult friends and colleagues for new ideas.

Jupiter appears in the 11th House

Financial disputes proliferate.  Fair trade legislation and interest rates are the subject of constant bickering at every legislative level.  Boards of directors dispute the directives of their Chief Executives and Chief Financial officers. Government bonds and securities have difficulty finding investors.

Mercury appears in the 11th House

Discussions, arguments, and recriminations are the order of the day, however everyone forgets the topic of the argument and why they are even involved in the discussion.   Mercury is Retrograde and as it moves past Jupiter and the Sun it often triggers very expensive mistakes.  Best to stick to the rule of not signing any contracts or buying expensive new toys.

Saturn appears in the 5th House

The commodities market suffers from lack of interest as traders note that weather conditions seem to be favorable and plenty of land is under till.  Commodity traders will begin to notice the shift away from corporate farming. Consumer demand for the products of organic farmers will claim the futures contract markets.  The shift means there will be fewer contracts to trade.  Demand is weakening in the trade of raw materials.  Contracts for timber and renewable resources replace the demand for metals.

Pluto appears in the 7th House

International relationships become very complex and leadership at every level is unable to agree on issues. International disputes multiply while the super powers feel they can’t really help. Prevention of widening civil wars seems to be impossible. Even domestic disputes become unsolvable.

Neptune appears in the 9th House

Fraud and deception are exposed and reported at every level. It is difficult to sort out the facts as trust is also challenged. Higher education continues to battle problems with budgets and staff.

Venus appears in the 10th House

The Royal wedding captivates the American audience. The British take the opportunity to improve foreign relations with governments and corporations. It is a time when weddings endear the public.

Mars appears in the 10th House

It usually indicates war and conflict. Conjunct Uranus it further indicates arguments and disputes that refuse a compromise. Agreements between even friendly powers are impossibly complex. Corporations find board members and share holders at odds with each other.

Uranus appears in the 10th House

Outrageous attacks make headlines.  There are dangers to officials in high positions as unreasonable disputes are impossible to resolve.
