For Cancer Suns - Pluto and Uranus are making challenging aspects for all Cardinal signs in 2012
This year can bring difficult and unexpected changes in your life,
especially those Cancers who have birthdays at the end of June and the early days of July.

Summer is here and it is hot, hot, hot - unless you live in the UK where it is cloudy and wet, wet, wet!  Global weather certainly has seen it's extremes, and this will continue throughout the summer season.

In the Summer Solstice (click to read) 
Uranus is in the fourth house of the chart suggesting the unusual, disruptive, destructive weather we have been having.  "One never really can predict Uranus energy as it represents what is unexpected - Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and loss of electricity due to the unusual weather are possible." We have had it all!

The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The Optimists... again!    

Mars in the sixth house trine Jupiter in the 2nd -
One can't help but believe these risk takers are walking a tight rope.  Mars is involved in a T-square with Uranus and Pluto.

Alone, Mars in opposition to Uranus has received a bad reputation, but involve Pluto and it certainly has the potential to live up to it!  Read Randall Ashbourne's recent Eye of Ra Report where he discusses "Back testing the Mars-Uranus crash " (Read Week beginning July 9, 2012)

An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Cancer Chart

New Moon in the 4th house, unaspected. In fact,  six planets in this chart are not involved in a major transiting planetary aspect.  It's not unusual to have a few planets unaspected in these mundane charts - because one needs to consider only close waxing aspects - however, this month there is more than usual.

Unaspected planets are free to act with pure archetypical energy, unfiltered and unaffected by the other planets.  But because they lack dynamic energy prompted by hard aspects, or have the grace of easy aspects it's hard to predict if they will act at all.

The New Moon is near the last degrees of Cancer and the Moon goes void of course after making the conjunction with the Cancer Sun.  The market really doesn't know what to expect this month - is the Fed going to offer QE3 or not?  Will the European banks ease again?  What is happening in Asia?  Looking at technical charts appearing somewhat positive while the world’s economies appear in trouble, we are not really ready to trust this market.

In Mundane Astrology the New Moon in the fourth house is considered favorable for land and real estate, and good for crops; generally favorable for the opposing party in government, and unfavorable for the current government in power.

Venus, ruler of the Taurus rising chart, is in the 2nd house along with Jupiter.
But not closely involved with other planets either!  The waning conjunction with Jupiter and waning trine to Mars are aspects that have happened before the new Moon, and not worth considering after the fact. 

However, Venus in the second house is a favorable position,
so this New Moon has the potential to live up to the New Moon Promise of a temporary high at the time of the New Moon relative to the direction the market is trending.

Mercury is Retrograde in the fifth house -
Again, here we have a planet not involved in any major aspects!   No news is good news?  REally??? The stationing retrograde has occurred on the 15th.  (Read the HEAD'S UP section below)   

Mars in the sixth house - Opposing Uranus in the twelfth house and Square Pluto in the ninth
Pluto square Uranus is THE most significant and dominating aspect of the summer. Mars is setting this aspect off with an opposition from the sixth house. With Uranus we can expect only the unexpected - if we can manage that! Uranus traveling through a veiled and mysterious space in the chart, the twelfth house suggests hospitals, charitable institutions, and prisons are the areas that may be highlighted.  With Pluto in Capricorn we can pretty much be assured the unexpected events will have something to do with money, debt, and world governments.

Saturn in the sixth house - the waning square with the Moon and Sun has past - Frustrated trade union workers and unacceptable unemployment numbers... the health of the economy and the bleak job picture is a serious concern.  Where are the jobs? The Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Health Care Act, but many wonder "is it really affordable?" The US election has become a referendum on the health of the economy and Obama's signature legislative act.

Neptune in the eleventh house
- Yet ANOTHER planet not in aspect with another planet in the chart!  There isn't much possibility of the legislative body in government getting anything done

Commentary -
Reading a mundane horoscope for the lunar month gives us a broad picture of the astrological landscape we expect to encounter during the month.  Astrological energy affects the market, however, astrology is a timing tool to use - knowing the potential of planetary cycles and what the technical charts tell us is our best bet for successful trading. We need to see the whole picture. 

Randall Ashbourne's charts are revealing illustrations of exactly what has occurred in the market and the probability of what to expect -  Each weekend, my associate, Randall Ashbourne writes a stock market forecast in his Eye of Ra Report on his web site,  The information on the web site is free, I hope you take advantage of the valuable information he shares in his books and on the web site.

My bad - Last month I alerted ya'll to Neptune square Jupiter on June 25
I said, "In all probability there will be higher fuel prices and an increase in demand for crude oil.  The zodiac sign Pisces, and the planets Jupiter and Neptune all have "rulership" over crude oil in modern astrology. A square aspect suggests either an increased demand or an decrease in supply of what the planets rule. Considering the Uranus square Pluto aspect on the 24th and the current world's political atmosphere, prepare for higher fuel prices."  I was wrong - prices went lower.

However, I am correct about the square aspect with Jupiter.  A Jupiter square does promise either an increase in demand and/or decrease in supply of what the planets and signs signify.  In this case, with both Jupiter and Neptune ruling oil, it is the oil industry.  Supply has become greater than demand because of a weak world economy.  I was considering the world's political atmosphere in my prediction and didn't factor in the condition of a weak global economy.  This is a case of the astrology being right, but the astrologer missing the mark.

Moon Phases
(for our subscribers who trade using phases of the Moon)
New Moon July 19 - 1st quarter Moon, July 26;  Full Moon, Aug. 1;  Last quarter Moon, Aug. 9;   Next New Moon, Aug. 17.  

Note: New Moon periods tend to be a positive time for the markets, often coinciding with temporary highs relative to the direction the market is trending.  There are many of you who have been trading with the phases of the Moon and having much success; and you know by reading Randall's The Idiot and the Moon that there are times when it doesn't always work out that way! (Read Randall Ashbourne's article, The Moods of the Moon - Trading the Mood Swings of the Monthly Lunar Cycle   be sure to purchase his eBook, The Idiot & the Moon )

HEADS UP! - Critical Astrological Transits this Lunar Month -

July 13 Uranus retrograde at 8° 32' Aries - This is an "erratic signature" according to Raymond Merriman. However, traders need to be aware that reversals can occur with Uranus rx.

July 15 Mercury retrograde at 12°32' Leo

What is expected in the market - Volatility!  Sharp swings can occur during the time Mercury goes rx.   It is the stations - Mercury changing directions, retrograde and direct - that one needs to be aware of.  A few days before, during and a few days after extreme volatility is possible.   

Mercury remains rx during this entire lunar month going direct August 8th, the day before the Last Quarter Moon.  On the 6th, 7th and the 8th the Moon will be in Aries, then will ingress into to Taurus on the 9th. Randall Ashbourne in his article on the blog, Using Daily Aspect Calendars to Time Intraday Trades, writes, "Moon in ARIES - The effect is aggressive and the Moon travelling in Aries can start a move in a direction likely to last for a couple of days. Since Uranus is now in Aries, the Moon and Uranus will be in the same section of the sky, a conjunction, and the action is likely to be both sudden and surprising."      

Raymond Merriman, in his book, The Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing -Solar/Lunar Correlations to Short Term Trading Reversals states, "...When the Moon is in Aries, there is a greater than normal probability that a crest will form . Traders are advised to look for an opportunity to sell short, if indeed prices are rallying into this time frame."

I would add to all that, because Mercury will be stationing direct and it is even more probable during this time.

On a more personal note - Now is the time to rest and relax.  Mercury goes retrograde three or four times a year giving us opportunities to take time off or at least the time to catch up on things.  It is a perfect time to research, review and reevaluate. Finish up projects on the back burner. Doing things that start with the prefix "re" is what we astrologers like to tell you to do during retrograde Mercury.   Do the REpairs you have been putting off. REmember to back up your computer!

It is a terrible time to start a new project, sign letters/contracts, or make major purchases. Misinterpreted communications make a mess of things during Mercury RX.  Also, glitches can occur with trading software and the internet, so this is a time to REally focus when in the market.  

Be very, very careful when pressing the buy/sell button when trading. I know personally of a trader who thought he was buying when he was selling!  It turned out ok after a LOT of agonizing over what he had done - Mercury retrograde is quite a trickster!

July 19, the New Moon AND Mars opposes Uranus at 8° Libra. - Randall Ashbourne's recent Eye of Ra Report discusses "Back testing the Mars-Uranus crash " (Read Week beginning July 9, 2012)

August 8 Mercury direct at 1° 25' Leo

Jupiter is now in Gemini - Important reading, Randall Ashbourne's article, Jupiter's cycle and its effects on Wall Street

Randall Ashbourne also discusses Jupiter's effect on the sectors in his recent Eye of Ra Report where he discusses "Back testing the Mars-Uranus crash " (Read Week beginning July 9, 2012)

Studies have proven that stocks in a sector ruled by the zodiac sign that Jupiter is transiting in do well, and stocks that are ruled by the zodiac sign that Saturn is transiting in pull back.  Now is the time to look at stocks that typically do well when Jupiter is in Gemini. In September we need to reevaluate Stocks in the Scorpio sector as Saturn ingresses into Scorpio October 5.

From Grace Morris' Astro Economics July Stock Market Newsletter

Last month we said News Corp. (NWS) would make the headlines in June. The shareholders have just voted to split NWS into two companies, spinning off the publishing businesses from the television and film units which are the company’s main sources of revenue. News Corp. owns the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, New York Post, Dow Jones Company and the Fox TV channel. Both companies (NWS & NWSA) will fit the new favored sectors (Media and Entertainment) unlike Sara Lee’s pending breakup into two companies, Hillshire Brands and D.E. Master Blenders 1753, which are part of the out-of-favor Food/Beverage sector."

Grace Morris' trading edge in predicting the next set of favorable sectors is using planetary cycle analysis. Also, using Value Line and the Investors Business Daily as tools her recommended stocks are those favored sectors.  Click to purchase Grace Morris' Astro Economics Stock Market Newsletter
