The New Moon is in Leo, August 12, 2007, exact
at 7:02 am EDT, set for Washington D.C.
In the July New Moon Newsletter I suggested that
you place 8% stops on your
stocks. It still isn't time to remove them and of course the End
debacle may have given you a supply of cash to invest. Keep researching
and with plans to reinvest after the September eclipse.
A Personal Note
I'm pretty optimistic about this market. I think financial stocks
are going to have problems, but agriculture should do well.
The previous transit of Saturn through Virgo in Aug.1978- Sept
1980 the market went up more than 10% starting at 800 and ending
at 1000. Just before Saturn changed sign from Leo to Virgo the
market was down from about a high of 850.
Plan to Celebrate Venus Direct September 8th
Have a party, go shopping, join a group to make new friends. Venus
turns direct on Sept. 8th, only a few days before the eclipse
Sept.11,2007. In the meantime avoid buying big ticket items
since they tend to become money pits.
There is a Wall Street aphorism "Buy the rumor and sell the
news". These gambles usually require careful research. When
Pluto is retrograde rumors abound. Pluto turns direct (Sept. 7)
and this change in direction usually exposes the news concerning
the rumors. It also exposes illegal activity within corporations
worthy of headlines. Scan your portfolio and divest yourself of
any high risk investments.
This particular Pluto direct means that it is starting the move
into Capricorn forcing change in corporate governance as well
as political change. Pluto's previous transit of Capricorn
was 1502-1532 and 1762-1777.
Trines New Moon
Three Trines from Pluto suggest corporate executives seek the
favor of shareholders.
Trines indicate plenty of tasks are in motion. We find 11th house
Pluto trine the New Moon, Saturn, and Venus. Corporations have
determined that the shareholders insist on dividends and this
requires an increase in earnings per share. Therefore expect that
shareholders information will send glowing reports concerning
sales and labor negotiations. Most corporations will report good
earnings in the months ahead as foreign sales improve.
Five Oppositions Dominate the New Moon chart
Oppositions usually mean that a task is completed. This chart
has five with the New Moon, Saturn, Venus and Mercury opposed
Neptune also Mars is opposed to Jupiter.
We can expect financial headlines to explain various mergers and
acquisitions have begun to sign the papers and the disputing parties
have reached a compromise. Corporate leaders are also completing
their assignments and choosing to retire or move into new ventures.
These types of changes within profitable corporations usually
drives down the price of an individual stock and then once complete
the price returns to its previous level if not higher. The financial
newspapers will be worthwhile reading this month. Buy yourself
a notebook and make notes.
Saturn Transits Virgo Until November 2009
Saturn will change signs before the September 12th eclipse. Saturn
helps you understand where you earn money and how much you have
made. In Leo people tried to find interesting ways to make money
with entertainment, example video games, streaming audio/video,
and new casinos. In Virgo people will try to discover interesting
ways to make money with food, keeping stuff organized, and providing
labor. There is a long list of business sectors ruled by Virgo
in the Textbook
for Financial Astrology.
From time to time we will discuss the problems Saturn exposes
during its Virgo transit. The next few years will find labor in
focus and negotiations concerning wages will be tough and prolonged.
Supply at every skill level is the problem. Folks planning to
retire will promise to return to their jobs on a contract basis.
