Taurus New Moon and the theme is Agriculture
Agriculture is the theme of Taurus, and the New Moon is ready to give the farms too much erratic weather to complete planting. The weather will be the tale for the commodities markets.

Financial institutions fall under Taurus and the New Moon will highlight their difficulties and thus create a pessimistic equity prices for some.

Governments and their institutions are able to enjoy less pressure and demand for service. Folks are pleased with their work and unlikely to complain. Hospitals have fewer patients and have time to improve their facilities.

Spending earned income and rebates
Mars is busy forcing folks to work and earn money. A tremendous amount of individual energy is devoted to deciphering bank and credit card charges. Folks will protest and change institutions if necessary. Others are spending money to make money. This Taurus New Moon I'm sure folks will approach the IRS refund checks as free money.

Economic gurus focus on foreign trade

Neptune is in Aquarius and it is creative with things that plug into electricity. Example: My Ranch supply store has half an aisle devoted to portable solar panels to electrify fences. Last year they had three samples. Price points $80-$170. My electric for fences, about $20 per month.

Management plays Musical chairs
Every earnings miss signals corporate officials and managers are being asked to seek opportunities elsewhere. There is a need to change the governance of companies since shareholders are unhappy with results and communications concerning results. This theme has been present since February. Executive Search service companies will be busy. Uranus is in the Tenth and insists on change

Dividends will be paid
Venus is in the eleventh suggesting that companies will continue to pay dividends and many will surprise investors who believe business is in recession. Look closely at the earnings per share history of any stocks you might choose to buy.

Goldilocks has been corresponding with Dick Whittington. His cat story enchants her. Ferdinand lost in the Bull ring but won his life and will return to the pasture. Goldilocks can't afford flowers in Euros. Dick is looking better every letter even though he is a politician.
