by Kaye Shinker

New Moon forecasts show general trends for the month, here is the overview of the month ahead

The New Moon in Sagittarius is at 5 ° 49 ' and happens November 27, 2008, 11:54 am EDT, The American Thanksgiving Day.  Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers!

Pluto will ingress into Capricorn on the day before the New Moon, November 26. Read the article, The Fall Equinox September 22, 2008, under the section, Pluto returns to Capricorn.

From the point of view of the Sun, Pluto has been in Capricorn since Summer. Pluto moved into Capricorn January 27, 2008 and with retrograde motion returned to Sagittarius June 15, 2008. One explanation for the market volatility could be the Pluto doesn't like to move in and out of zodiac signs. He likes to focus his destruction on one topic at a time. Examples: 1912, 1939, 1957, 1984, 1995.

Uranus turns direct 45 minutes before the New Moon is exact. Fortunately, this is a market holiday in the USA and the aggravating volatility will find all of other world markets. Uranus direct usually pushes market averages up. Uranus direct helps investors focus their research and make decisions concerning growth equities. Researching these clever new ideas inspires investors to begin to part with small sums of cash.

The best use for the Saturn Uranus opposition is to "Think Green". Which green of course is the problem.

Expect volatile price swings in every market. We could easily go through a new shortage and price hike in products derived from oil. Once again the world population will adopt Demand Destruction. The Textbook for Financial Astrology has several lessons on Uranus. Be sure to read them.

The long shopping weekend as well as the following three weekends will experience a happy but indecisive mood among shoppers. Customers emerge from hibernation to seek out bargains. Internet shopping will be the highlight of this year's Santa Claus effect.

Sophisticated shoppers are using the internet along with their cell phones to double check prices and recommendations. Honest transparent merchants offering excellent service are the survivors of this Holiday season. My astrological observation is that the Mall concept as well as the big box for shopping has to be completely reworked. This holiday season will find actual purchases are moving to the cell phone, laptop and the drive up window. Time, taxes, and transportation are the reason given by consumers. Pluto transiting Capricorn is the reason given by this astrologer.

The Super New Moon occurs with the Full Moon December 13, 2008. A Super Moon means the Moon is at Perigee when there is either a new or full moon. Usually Earthquakes will score higher on the Richter Scale and capable of causing significant damage in populated areas.The Northern Hemisphere is closer to the Sun at this time and natural disasters in populated areas cause significant damage. Active volcanoes will sputter and spew especially those in the Ring of Fire.

Saturn is in the 7th and indicates problems with foreign trade especially those involved in financial transactions. Agreements made in October will be question with banks leaving the agreements. Some CEO's will find the legal requirements of government money too burdensome for the natural flow of business, Natural disasters concerning snow are also indicated. In general people are setting up for a paper work rebellion. If they can't fill out a form in a few minutes they will just walk away. Folks have learned that free money has lots of strings attached. It is easier just to earn it.

The New Moon is in the 10th gives the current CEO's the ability to make wise management decisions. Even if they are new hires, management is nimble and able to find interesting new ways to inspire their employees to deliver excellent products. Energy is available to promote products and services. Therefore there could be some interesting surprises from new products of those corporations with bleak outlooks for the fourth quarter.

Mercury in the 10th shows the changes in advertising has paid dividends. Advertising that informs the audience about the product or service will win the minds as well as the cash of customers. In other words no web site no sale.

Mars in the 10th suggest fierce competition between retail rivals. It also indicates a rise in violence as it squares Uranus and Saturn during the weekend of the full Moon. Gangs as well as terrorist types believe institutions and governments are currently vulnerable. The security industry will work double shifts as a result.

Pluto in the 11th gives shareholders the power of the pen. Finally they express their wishes to corporate management as well as their board of directors. What they want is cash for their patience. Dividends reinvested are the topic of discussion.

Now that Pluto is securely in the sign of business and government until 2025, he will start his path of destruction and rebuilding governments, real estate, and corporations. He has a lot of work ahead and he never fails to 'get er done'. In the USA we call legislators who cross party lines 'Blue Dog Democrats' expect to see the application of this phrase applied to business. Employees have learned that corporate loyalty has no reward.

Jupiter in the 12th says that folks are healthy and even if they feel a cold coming on they take care of it immediately and stay on the job. It is likely that there will be unexpected increases of donations to charity.

Neptune and Uranus are in the first so the general population will probably express their creativity and ingenuity with holiday celebrations. The use of electricity and computers with interesting new holiday venues will truly brighten the season and inspire others to try creative approaches to using their time and money to the best advantage.

Overall the holiday season appears to be joyous and the media will suffer from slow news syndrome. It will be a good time to run special programs concerning travel, space exploration, and biographies of famous sports stars as well as religious figure. People are interested in the world outside their neighborhood. Who knows, attendance at religious festivals could double.
