The Libra New Moon - October 11, 2007
by Kaye Shinker

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

The Libra New Moon appears October 11, 2007 at 1:01 am in the chart set for Washington, DC.

Mercury is retrograde from Oct 12-Nov 2, 2007.
Mercury starts out its retrograde motion in Scorpio, therefore, people contract foot in mouth disease. Sincere apologies will be required.  On October 25th he remains retrograde but is now in the sign of Libra.  PR firms will need to be hired to help public figures find even better ways to apologize.  We all have the same problem, therefore, remember the value of a swift apology.  

In this forecast I suggest sectors that have the potential to outperform the market.  Of course you all remember to zip up your check books, hide your credit cards and no purchases above $10.  If it starts with "re" go right ahead and do it. The sector list is available in The Textbook for Financial Astrology.

While you are reading the Textbook 1 you might want to check the things ruled by Aries and Libra. These things will be in short supply for the next 12 months. Now determine which companies make these items.
Some clues are in Textbook 3. By November 3rd you will probably have some excellent investment ideas.

Happy and Cheerful October
The minute I suggest that this might be a boring month, something interesting will happen, right?  This is a very happy, cheerful New Moon chart.  Folks feel optimistic and foresee a very happy holiday ahead.  It doesn't mean you will have time off from work, but it does mean you will enjoy the fruits of your labor.

The New Moon appears in the third house and it indicates transportation and media (old and new) are the focus of attention.  You might like to start researching advertising agencies with a good footprint in the new media.  Not that people will believe any more of what they read or see, but they will certainly demand transportation as well as the information the media provides.

Why all of the attention by the public to the media?  Weather is the Net's most popular site and it appears that windy weather will prevail during this month. This will heighten the action at the CBOT and grain prices will find new highs as shortages are anticipated.  Demand for raw materials in particular metals will also keep the commodities traders extremely busy.

Jupiter and Pluto in the 5th
Secret attacks will likely be foiled by the observant public. The terrorists groups tend to be nervous or careless and the public is well equipped with camera cell phones.

Neptune in the 7th
Insurance companies need to evaluate their risks.  This month seems to suggest that accidents multiply. Accidents will gain a bit more attention than usual by the media.  Human error will be the culprit.  Folks just tend to be careless with volatile materials and since many employees are overworked and overstressed managers need to observe details with concern.

Uranus in the 8th
Underground there is a lot of pent up energy. This explodes as earthquakes, but pending earthquakes also makes for a nervous population. Most folks hide their nervous feelings and a many see them as an opportunity to get things done. The few who can't control their feelings will make headlines.

Mars in 12
Earnings will be excellent. Everyone is experiencing the fruits of their labor. Wages and contract labor will be at an all time high with people paying down debt. The savings rate will rise in spite of the low interest rates. Venus and Saturn in the 2nd.
