New Moon in Scorpio will occur on November 16, 2009 at 2:14 pm EST Washington D.C.

November 26th is Thanksgiving Day in the USA. Wishing all those who celebrate a warm, festive, and Happy Thanksgiving.

It would be a good idea astrologically to have your holiday gifts bought and wrapped before the next New Moon, December 16.  Mars will turn retrograde on the 20th of December, therefore you may be prone to hiding presents and forgetting where they are. (This has happened to me several times and I looked up the dates, only to discover Mars Rx!  Those years were the ones that found my son Chris complaining that his best present showed up after Christmas.)

Jupiter is conjunct Neptune on the 21st of December, therefore celebrating too much may cause messy present wrapping! Take my advise and have it all done early.

November 15th, Saturn Square Pluto (a review from Libra New Moon Report)
The aspect is in effect for several weeks before and after the exact date.  It tends to reverse markets, but rarely more than 5%.  This square forces changes in leadership of corporations all the way down to small businesses. The taxpayers are not pleased and states with elections this month will be the first to notice (they noticed). Saturn is in Libra and insists on a level playing field. Everyone must be treated equally. Pluto is in Capricorn and folks are not pleased with institutional leadership and they are not even pleased with own clubs. They will insist on change or withdraw their support. The excuse is fairness, but the reason is failure of the old boy/girl network when replacing leadership.

December 15, 2009 Jupiter conjunct Chiron
Chiron in astrology is considered the maverick and the wounded healer. Corporations burdened by too many subsidiaries under one umbrella will find it necessary to divest themselves of these businesses. The newly departed companies could take on a new life and become very profitable, or without the support of their parent they could wither. It will be important to study the debt on each new balance sheet.

In Financial Astrology, Chiron tends to indicate mergers, acquisitions and spin offs. Jupiter indicates a plentiful supply. During the 1990's companies made acquisitions to increase shareholder value. After 2003 with the lowering of capital gains taxes, companies began to spin off acquisitions that no longer made sense to their business plan. Many of the Dow stocks are burdened with subsidiaries that just need to spin off. With this conjunction you will hear even more news about Spins. Some could be very profitable to share holders. For example: GE's IPO has Jupiter at 26 Aquarius with transiting Chiron making a conjunction. GE has been discussing the sale of NBC for the past few months.

December 21, 2009 Jupiter will be conjunct Neptune
This aspect creates a rather euphoric attitude among the public. Folks tend to think that they will be able to conquer their problems and will be in a great holiday spirit. This is especially true for entrepreneurs and folks who depend on their creativity to earn a living. From the beginning of December it is important to take notes on your ideas and start working on your own business plans. You will have 80 days of Mars retrograde starting December 20 to polish the details. Major lows occur close to this date so keep some cash on hand to invest.

The New Moon appears in the eighth house -November 16th

(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)

The New Moon in the eighth means that the concentration of the public is on insurance and taxes. It is the reaction of government to add more taxes when they have a shortfall in their collections. The public sees the problem as if you don't have a job, you cannot earn any money to pay the taxes. This quiet boycott is cutting into the projected collection of tax revenues. The same is true with insurance. There is also a problem of leadership passing away.  No one is available to explain how to get things done efficiently or to encourage managers to help the employees do their work.

Mercury in the eighth house
Folks are concerned with the laws that require unexpected taxes when dealing with gifts and inheritance. The world wide web is helpful but others will require detailed advise to solve the problems.  Doctors, lawyers and accountants will find that their services are in demand.

Venus in the eighth house
Venus is very intense in Scorpio and insists that you consider thrifty purchases with your earned income. Problem is that a great deal of energy is required to earn the income needed to pay for purchases, and thrifty takes time and thought.  Folks are silently rebelling against certain taxes by boycotting items that require excess taxes. Fewer sin taxes are collected when fewer items are sold.

Pluto in the tenth house
Executives and government leaders are in the midst of some awkward situations concerning the management of their assigned projects. Pluto is square Saturn, therefore suggesting that leaders are stuck on the issue of finding experts for advise. Professional advisers are busy helping their friends and neighbors and explain that they are not available to help corporate or government leadership. The public's perception of their work is that they have no concept of a budget. Leaders are striving for absolute power and finding folks not very cooperative.

Jupiter in the twelfth house
Jupiter is in the final degrees of Aquarius and in the twelfth house. Scandals concerning fraud, embezzlement and secret detention prisons will scandalize various governments and institutions. Officials will be exposed for their heavy expenses and ludicrous book keeping. The internet will help bring the performance of these officials to the attention of the public.

Neptune in the twelfth house
Fraud is in abundant supply. Information concerning the mismanagement of the receipts of supposedly respected charitable institutions overwhelms the public. Scandals concerning the administration of services meant to help the poor, handicapped and minorities proliferate. Donations to these charities diminish quickly.

Uranus in the tenth
Innovation is a key word with Uranus, and management will have the opportunity to reform their actions. People are extremely dissatisfied with the performance of their leaders, but are willing to listen to announcements and disclosures that promise improvements. Governments seek to console the populace by adding more controls that promise to reform the administration of public institutions.

The best example of the changes brought by Uranus in Pisces is the creation of a whole new business model for the sale and distribution of music. This holiday season will spell the end of music sales through traditional venues. Creative folks at every level have seen massive changes concerning the sale of their products. Content providers, whether writing fact or fiction, must adapt to the same drastic changes that are very obvious in the field of music.

Expect that Uranus will do the same to manufacturing next year when he starts his transit through Aries starting in June, 2010.

Mars in the fifth house
Mars in Leo will create some wonderful new games and toys. Mars here puts a great deal of stress on entertainment venues. Audiences are very tense and not easily pleased by the actors, musicians and sports teams they paid to amuse them.

Saturn in the seventh
There are opportunities here to solve some international problems using diplomacy and talking one on one. The conflict is between the need for fair treatment and the desire for power.  Folks are dissatisfied with current conditions and look to their leaders for answers to their difficulties. Few leaders are available to help.

Goldilocks continues...

'Baby Bear' appeared on the caller ID. "Hi Baby Bear, when did you get your own cell phone? WOW, Baby Bear, did Mama Bear buy it for you?"

"I bought it myself with my tips from Mama's Porridge kiosk! I have 6 honey jars full of tips. Papa said we can go to Disney World for Christmas...You should be here in Washington D.C. Papa parks the RV on the Mall and protestors and reporters buy porridge all day... Here's Mama"

"Hi Goldilocks, Papa says we should pack up the RV and go to Florida. He's right, you know, we've been working day and night we need the time off."

"Mama Bear, that's fine... I was beginning to panic because I can't find a plane for Ferdinand. The Breeders Cup is this week and absolutely nothing will be available for at least a month. Ferdinand loves his Greenhouse Garden on the roof; he's made friends with the pigeons. I wish you were here to see it. The flowers are gorgeous. Oh! I bought my dress for the wedding. I'll send Baby Bear's phone pictures.
