Another New Moon in Gemini, June 19- Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE. (Click for larger image)

A second new Moon in Gemini? Yes, here we are at the second new Moon in Gemini this year. As I stated in the last New Moon Newsletter, two new Moons doesn't happen often in the sign of the twins, or any of the signs.  Only when a new Moon is at the very earliest degree of a sign can it happen. The Moon's cycle is 28 1/2 days.

So... how did the solar eclipse of May 20 and the full Moon eclipse of June 4 work out for you?  
Remember, the influence of an eclipse is long lasting! The influence of eclipse energy can dramatically reappear as transiting planets aspect the degree of the eclipse and other planetary positions in the eclipse chart. 

Watch for planets transiting 0° and 14 °mutable - Mars will often reactivate the energy of an eclipse. These eclipses took place in Gemini, so watch Mercury transits as well.  
Stocks that have first trade or IPO charts with planets within 5 degrees of 0° and 14° in mutable signs. (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are under the influence of these eclipses.

I mentioned in the last newsletter that the IPO chart of Verizon (VZ) has Jupiter at 0° Gemini.   VZ is in the "Gemini Sector" (governed by Gemini and the planet Mercury) VZ has a very promising year as Jupiter transits Gemini.

An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Gemini Chart
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 )

The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The Optimists!    
Mars in the first house, waxing sextile to chart ruler, Mercury, and Jupiter conjunct the Mid Heaven
- This aspect, along with Venus, and the new Moon transiting the 10th house (Jupiter makes a conjunction to the mid heaven at the time of the new Moon)  is going to bring out the courageous and the optimists!

IF you are a risk taker, then you may very well may get your kicks taking a long position in the S&P right in the third quarter Moon period and up to the new Moon this lunar month. 
HOWEVER! This is definitely NOT a time to be long in the market if you are faint of heart!!!  And why I said if you are a risk taker, you very well may get your kicks being long in the market on the new Moon. Warning - the Mars aspect is waxing, and the angles of the chart move swiftly. Have an exit strategy!

Saturn in the second house applying in a hard aspect with new Moon chart ruler, Mercury - This is an indicator of dire economic news.  Earnings reports may disappoint, or if not, they may be overshadowed by European economic and political news.

Pluto in the fifth house square Uranus in the eighth house - THE MOST significant and dominating aspect in the chart! This is the first of a series of waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during 2012 - March 2015.  According to Raymond Merriman in his book, Forecast 2012, "..this is the most challenging time for world leaders to resolve their economic and political crises.." (Read the Heads Up section below where I discuss Pluto square Uranus further.)

Neptune in the sixth house - Trade unions and workers are the focus both here and abroad. Unacceptable unemployment numbers and the health of the economy take a toll in the markets.

Venus and the new Moon in the tenth house, Jupiter conjunct MC - A promising new Moon, but fleeting. Be careful with Uranus square Pluto and the upcoming Neptune square Jupiter aspect. (discussed below in Head's Up!)

Mercury in the eleventh house square Saturn - Discussions of new restrictive regulations on business create uncertainty in the market.

Commentary -

Knowing how astrology actually coincides with market cycles and the market trend will help you become more profitable in the market - much more so than a reading of transits in a mundane horoscope. Knowing what the outlook for the lunar month gives one a broad picture of the potential astrological energy that can affect the market, however, knowing both astrology and technical aspects is your best bet for successful trading.  Remember the old adage, "the trend is your friend".

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.

Moon phases (for our subscribers who trade using phases of the Moon)
New Moon June 19 - 1st quarter Moon, June 26;  Full Moon, July 3;  Last quarter Moon, July 10;   Next New Moon, July 18.  (Read Randall Ashbourne's article, The Moods of the Moon - Trading the Mood Swings of the Monthly Lunar Cycle)

HEADS UP! - A Critical Astrological Period, June 20 through 30th - Upcoming astrological events -

Venus remains retrograde until June 27 - Venus rules money, and monetary policy decisions made will be reevaluated which in turn create an ever- changing environment of unpredictability in the market.  Reiterating last month's warning of what to expect with Venus retrograde, June 7th's opening gap and the disappointing close is an example of that.  Within minutes of the opening, the Dow industrials were over 150 points higher than Wednesday’s 287-point gain. This gap was the result of news that China’s central bank's would cut interest rates for the first time in four years; AND the hopeful anticipation of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to announce QE3 in the near future.
However Bernanke failed to outline any new stimulus plans and within an hour of the close, profit-taking took back almost all of the early gains.

On a personal note, during Venus retrograde it is wise not to purchase large ticket items - very often one has "buyers remorse" after Venus turns direct. This goes for relationship decisions as well since Venus also rules relationships.

June 11 - Jupiter in Gemini - At the time of writing this newsletter I am in the process of writing an article on Jupiter in Gemini for the web site. In the meantime, read Randall Ashbourne's article, Jupiter's cycle and its effects on Wall Street.

Regardless if it is a Bear or Bull market, there are always stocks that outperform. 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.

Astro Economics Stock Market Newsletter does the research for you!  The new sectors are Advertising, Media (including social media), Telecommunication, Transportation (airline, railroad, truck & auto), Education, Leisure, Travel, Retail-Internet, Technology and Information Services.   
"BUFFETT BUYS NEWSPAPERS!     Some are questioning if Warren Buffett of Berkshire Hathaway has finally ‘lost it’, that being his magic touch. Then again, he may have been ‘ahead of the curve’ when his fund purchased 63 newspapers from Media General (MEG).   Just look above at our listing of the next sectors to outperform in the new Jupiter in Gemini cycle (6/13/12-6/26/13), Media along with Advertising!" - from Grace Morris' Astro Economics Stock Market Newsletter

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.

June 19 – Second New Moon in Gemini - Is this a Blue Moon? The second full Moon in an calendar month - not in a zodiac sign - is called a Blue Moon.  The expression "Once in a Blue Moon", according to the Farmers Almanac, was first noted back in 1821 and refers to occurrences that are uncommon, though not truly rare.  There seems to have been no significant study proving that the second new moon in a zodiac sign has any more consequence than a typical new Moon.

June 19 & 20 - The Summer Solstice (new Moon) & Mercury square Saturn, June 20 - Mercury square Saturn usually shakes up the market with troublesome news for the beginning of summer. (check the web site for my upcoming article, The Summer Solstice, 2012, which will be posted immediately after the New Moon.)

June 24 - Uranus square Pluto at 8° Capricorn - This is the first of a series of waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during 2012 - March 2015. According to Raymond Merriman in his book, Forecast 2012, "..this is the most challenging time for world leaders to resolve their economic and political crises. In such a venerable climate, Gold is apt to remain a safe haven. Investors and speculators will seek protection by diversifying their portfolios with precious metals. A time that stands out in 2012 is the last tens days of June."

June 25 - Neptune square Jupiter - 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.

June 27 - Venus Direct
- This is important because Venus rules money and the value of things. We saw what happened in the market the day Venus turned retrograde - Venus direct can have the very same sort of implications. Venus direct often correlates with a reversal in the market.  

July 18 - New Moon in Cancer

Have a great month! Marlene Pfeifle
