Saturn rules the Leo New Moon chart - And this is a fortunate situation for the market!?!?
In the midst of a season influenced by Uranus square Pluto, the market continues an upward rally.
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. Since I read the chart for the location of the NYSE, and not Washington D.C., my interpretations take on a less political, and more economical, viewpoint.
The Leo New Moon chart has seven planets in these important houses, first, fourth, seventh and tenth.
Pluto is in a powerful position in the first house conjoining the Capricorn Ascendant, and Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is in Scorpio in the tenth house. Saturn in Scorpio, is in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn.
I've discussed mutual reception before, so I'll briefly explain... each planet gives the other planet the position of being a guest of honor in each others sign and house - and therefore very strong - regardless of the sign and house they are transiting. However, because Pluto and Saturn are "VIP Guests" in each others signs, they don't quite act as if "at home", rather, as any honored guest should act, they act with positive expression of their pure energy. However, please keep in mind that both these planets - even when acting on their best behavior - express difficult energy!
In mundane astrology, the first house represents the common people and the general state of affairs. In reading this chart for the NYSE, Pluto in the first represents the power of shareholders and the general state of affairs in the market.
So, imagine what Pluto-in-Capricorn-Shareholders want? Strong corporate management that encourages company growth and generate even more profit! They want stock price shares on the open market to increase.
Activities that reveal secret or hidden information, and activities that bring about transformation, are ruled by Pluto. Therefore, anything that undermines what Pluto wants is either destroyed or transformed.
Saturn, ruler of the New Moon chart, in mutual reception with Pluto, is in the tenth house, trine Neptune. The tenth house represents the NYSE corporations and Chairmen of the Boards.
Saturn trine Neptune in the second house
Neptune's energy can be very idealistic - and unrealistic. Earlier in July Ben Bernanke calmed and quieted anxieties about an early Fed roll back on stimulus, stating the the US needs a "highly accommodative monetary policy for the foreseeable future." Saturn trine Neptune in the second house supports Ben's approach to improve economic conditions, and suggests that the easy-money policies will continue. Stocks, shares, and investments will benefit. Hospitals, and healthcare institutions may gain through improved regulations or administration, as well as charitable institutions.
