Neptune's entrance into in Pisces has come with promises of QE3 by the Fed, and Mario Draghi - head of the ECB - on a bond buying spree. Soaring markets are distracting attention away from the reality of slow economic growth and bad employment numbers. The planet Neptune is the planet of dreams, of unreality and misinformation. Neptune is "at home" in Pisces and offers promises of unlimited possibilities.
The New Moon in Virgo, September 15 - Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE.
Total misdirection, or just a needed adjustment?
Mars is in a quincunx aspect to Jupiter in the first house. While I normally don't discuss inconjuncts, this aspect is the only exact aspect in the Virgo New Moon chart (aside from the new Moon conjunction), and it suggests a high rate of expended and misdirected energy.

An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Virgo ChartThe New Moon and Mercury in the fifth house - Schools, education, and teachers are the main interest in the media. Stocks represented in these areas - which are additionally supported with Jupiter in Gemini - benefit with Mercury and the New Moon in the fifth. Stocks in the entertainment sector may get a jump as well.
Saturn in the sixth house - The health of the economy is of grave concern. High unemployment numbers and discontent among workers persist.
Mars in Scorpio in the 6th house - Possible threats of strikes in the workplace with much discontent among union workers. Danger of fires in the military.
Pluto in the eighth house square Uranus in the eleventh house - An urgent call for government reform in taxes and banking provokes a much greater response than expected in the market. Difficulty with legislative reforms.
Prices for gold, oil, copper and other metals jump as mining stocks and metals lead the way.
Note - As I have stated before, Pluto square Uranus has been the astrological theme of the summer. This aspect has heated things up politically resulting in ruthless, negative campaigns between the two parties in the US.
Economically, the Uranus and Pluto aspect has been push pulling the markets.
Neptune in the tenth house, and Jupiter in the first house - In Mundane Astrology the first, fourth, seventh and tenth houses are most important, with the tenth house having a special reference to the ruler of the country, the government in power, and the national honor and reputation of the country; the first house represents the minds of the people.
Neptune in the tenth house - Neptune here suggests the position of the government in power is uncertain.
Jupiter in the first house - Normally, without any adverse aspects, Jupiter in the first suggests prosperity. People are contented and trade is good - however with an inconjunct aspect to Mars in Scorpio, people feel something is not right. There is a higher than usual amount of energy expended and aggressive talk.
Venus in the third house - Stocks ruled by Gemini continue to outperform the market. Gemini sectors include Advertising, Media (including social media), Telecommunication, Transportation (airline, railroad, truck & auto), Education, Leisure, Travel, Retail-Internet, Technology and Information Services.
