|Cancer New Moon, July 19, 2012, NY, NY|
In the Summer Solstice article (click to read) Uranus is in the fourth house of the chart suggesting the unusual, disruptive, destructive weather we have been having. "One never really can predict Uranus energy as it represents
what is unexpected - Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and loss of electricity due to the unusual weather are possible." We have had it all!
The New Moon in Cancer, July 19- Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE.- The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The Optimists... again!
Mars in the sixth house trine Jupiter in the 2nd - One can't help but believe these risk takers are walking a tight rope. Mars is involved in a T-square with Uranus and Pluto.
Alone, Mars in opposition to Uranus has received a bad reputation, but involve Pluto and it certainly has the
potential to live up to it! Read Randall Ashbourne's recent Eye of Ra Report where he discusses "Back testing the Mars-Uranus crash " (Read Week beginning July 9, 2012)
An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Cancer Chart
New Moon in the 4th house, unaspected. In fact, six planets in this chart are not involved in a major transiting planetary aspect. It's not unusual to have a few planets unaspected in these mundane charts - because one needs to consider only close waxing aspects - however, this month there is more than usual.
Unaspected planets are free to act with pure archetypical energy, unfiltered and unaffected by the other planets. But because they lack dynamic energy prompted by hard aspects, or have the grace of easy aspects it's hard to predict if they will act at all.
The New Moon is near the last degrees of Cancer and the Moon goes void of course after making the conjunction with the Cancer Sun. The market really doesn't know what to expect this month - is the Fed going to offer QE3 or not? Will the European banks ease again? What is happening in Asia? Looking at technical charts appearing somewhat positive while the world’s economies appear in trouble, we are not really ready to trust this market.
In Mundane Astrology the New Moon in the fourth house is considered favorable for land and real estate, and good for crops; generally favorable for the opposing party in government, and unfavorable for the current government in power.
Venus, ruler of the Taurus rising chart, is in the 2nd house along with Jupiter. But not closely involved with other planets either! The waning conjunction with Jupiter and waning trine to Mars are aspects that have happened before the new Moon, and not worth considering after the fact.
However, Venus in the second house is a favorable position, so this New Moon has the potential to live up to the New Moon Promise of a temporary high at the time of the New Moon relative to the direction the market is trending.

Mercury is Retrograde in the fifth house - Again, here we have a planet not involved in any major aspects! No news is good news? REally??? The stationing retrograde has occurred on the 15th. (Read the HEAD'S UP section below)
Mars in the sixth house - Opposing Uranus in the twelfth house and Square Pluto in the ninth
Pluto square Uranus is THE most significant and dominating aspect of the summer. Mars is setting this aspect off with an opposition from the sixth house. With Uranus we can expect only the unexpected - if we can manage that! Uranus traveling through a veiled and mysterious space in the chart, the twelfth house suggests hospitals, charitable institutions, and prisons are the areas that may be highlighted. With Pluto in Capricorn we can pretty much be assured the unexpected events will have something to do with money, debt, and world governments.
Saturn in the sixth house - the waning square with the Moon and Sun has past - Frustrated trade union workers and unacceptable unemployment numbers... the health of the economy and the bleak job picture is a serious concern. Where are the jobs? The Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Health Care Act, but many wonder "is it really affordable?" The US election has become a referendum on the health of the economy and Obama's signature legislative act.
Neptune in the eleventh house - Yet ANOTHER planet not in aspect with another planet in the chart! There isn't much possibility of the legislative body in government getting anything done.
Commentary - Reading a mundane horoscope for the lunar month gives us a broad picture of the astrological landscape we expect to encounter during the month. Astrological energy affects the market, however, astrology is a timing tool to use - knowing the potential of planetary cycles and what the technical charts tell us is our best bet for successful trading. We need to see the whole picture.

My bad - Last month I alerted ya'll to Neptune square Jupiter on June 25 I said, "In all probability there will be higher fuel prices and an increase in demand for crude oil. The zodiac sign Pisces, and the planets Jupiter and Neptune all have "rulership" over crude oil in modern astrology. A square aspect suggests either an increased demand or an decrease in supply of what the planets rule. Considering the Uranus square Pluto aspect on the 24th and the current world's political atmosphere, prepare for higher fuel prices." I was wrong - prices went lower.
However, I am correct about the square aspect with Jupiter. A Jupiter square does promise either an increase in demand and/or decrease in supply of what the planets and signs signify. In this case, with both Jupiter and Neptune ruling oil, it is the oil industry. Supply has become greater than demand because of a weak world economy. I was considering the world's political atmosphere in my prediction and didn't factor in the condition of a weak global economy. This is a case of the astrology being right, but the astrologer missing the mark.
