Sagittarius – You are finding more imaginative,
creative, and exciting ways to express yourself. Explore
what might be holding you back, as this year is the
year to go after what you want in life, and rid yourself
of outdated attachments. Your romantic and creative
life is unpredictable! Watch for overspending
or risky investments. This is a good year to do charitable
work and giving.
Thanksgiving in the US - the annual American tradition
of giving thanks for the harvest, when we stuff ourselves
on turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie...and
then watch football on TV. The
day after, Black Friday, is the biggest Christmas
Shopping Day of the year. Considered the official
start of the Christmas Shopping Season, economists
predict the stock market and the economic weather
based on consumer spending that day.
I personally find it appalling that the day after
a day we give thanks for what we have, it becomes
all about spending on what we don't have.

We celebrate Thanksgiving at our house with close friends
and family. It's a warm gathering together
to share a traditional Thanksgiving meal and reflect on, and
express appreciation and gratitude for, our blessings, simple
and small, large and grand...and then we watch football on
TV! I love this holiday - there are no presents
to buy, gifts to wrap or unwrap, it is cheerful time just
to be thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you, for
your support of Astrologicalinvesting.com, the blog, and to

Please read the Autumnal
(Fall) Equinox, September 22, 2013to get a general
outlook for this season, and watch for my next article coming
in December. The Winter Solstice. In mundane astrology
it is the entrance of the sun into each of the four
cardinal signs that determine the astrological framework of
each season. New Moon charts work within the
energy woven into the fabric of these charts.
The New Moon in Sagittarius, December 2, 2013 - Chart
from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE. (Click

Note: When reading a chart for the NYSE, my interpretations
are modified to take into consideration location and the economic
and political conditions that impact the market. The meanings
of the planets and house are adapted to these circumstances.
Virginia, there is a Santa Claus - and he is dressed to deliver
presents to all the good boys and girls of Wall Street!
Pluto square Uranus can't keep Santa from delivering
his presents - not as long as his special reindeers, Ben and
Janet, lead his sleigh.
VERY FAST TRIP Around the New Moon in Sagittarius Chart
The New Moon is in the fifth house and the Moon
rules the Cancer rising chart - The Moon
and Sun in Sagittarius is filled with hope and great expectations.
The 5th house comes to the forefront this lunar
month- The fifth house
has dominion over theaters and places of amusement, entertainment,
and pleasure. It rules creativity, children, and lovers.
In financial astrology it rules gambling, stock traders
and market speculation. The new Moon here gives promise
of prosperity and contentment.
The Sun and Moon (New Moon) in the 5th is trine
Uranus in the 10th house. The 10th house's
domain is the government - in this chart that would be the
governmental regulatory agencies/people of the NYSE.
Uranus is the planet of *~SURPRISE~!* - Though we can't
predict surprises, we know that New Moons, generally, are
times when the market it is up. This aspect to Uranus in
the 10th suggests unexpected success and achievement. (In
political terms, the 10th house symbolizes the Government
and the President himself. Political achievement
and success usually calms fears on Wall Street. However,
to fully study the USA political chart, we would need to
draw up an exact chart using Washington, DC as the location.
The Washington DC chart, in this case (as it is most of
the time, due to the proximity of location), does have the
planets in the same houses.)
Jupiter is in Cancer in the twelfth house, conjunct
the Ascendant - Jupiter here is most fortunate,
and acts as if he were the Angel in the December Christmas
The 12th house is the natural house of Pisces. Jupiter,
being a co-Ruler of Pisces, has great strength here, and
is very beneficial to the US. (The US has it's natal Sun
in Cancer - Jupiter is in Cancer.)
So, in the 12th house, Jupiter acts as a Guarding Angel,
forcing aside negativity and anything that could possibly
thwart idealistic and optimistic goals of a broad and better
It's a Santa Claus Rally!
OK...Well, everyone, we should probably stop reading, have a Cup of Cheer and
turn to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas / Happy Holiday!
Actually, that is all we really need to know about the
astrology of this chart in terms of how Wall Street will
do this Lunar month. And then in January, after the New
Moon in Capricorn on the New Year, we'll get back
But! What about the rest of the planets in houses?
Oh sure, there will be more fuss about
President Obama transforming Health Care with Pluto in Capricorn
in the 6th house square Uranus. But really, with four planets
in the 5th house partying and Wall Street waiting for Christmas bonuses...well,
would you look at that? It's a Santa Claus Rally!

Although, for me, seeing this chart, and given the
history of Sagittarius pushing up the market in December,
and knowing Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen have no intent
on exiting the year with a down market... excuse me,
but holiday festivities are calling!

From Randall Ashbourne, in his article on the blog,
Daily Aspect Calendars to Time Intraday Trades
"SAGITTARIUS - Usually unduly optimistic. If there’s
going to be a sudden spurt, or strong countertrend, this is
when it’s most likely to occur. This is not a freight
train to step in front of, regardless of whether it’s
a rocket ride or a plunge.."

*** Commentary - I always end my newsletter reading
with a reminder that New Moon chart interpretations only give
us a broad picture of the astrological landscape we expect

you to look at the weekly technical charts that Randall Ashbourne
posts on his web site and also
posted on the blog. Randall Ashbourne discusses
the impact of aspects and the technical conditions going on
in the market in his weekend report and from previous weeks

technical charts tell us is our best bet for successful trading.
We need to see the whole picture!
