The New Moon in Aries is involved in a dynamic configuration - a T-Square - with Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto. The nature of these planets and their signs are pitted against each other to force an outcome. (Read The Spring Equinox, March 20, 2014)
The quote above reminds us, "...power concedes nothing without demand." This T- Square is extremely demanding, agitated energy. With the Aries New Moon, Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter, the dynamic of this agitated aspect says "something's GOT to give!" So what does that mean for the NYSE? April will be unpredictable and volatile.
Times like these are when it is extremely important to pay attention to the charts that are posted weekly on the blog and at Randall Ashbourne's web site theidiotandthemoon.com in his Eye of RA report.
An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Aries Chart
The Sun in Aries rules the Leo rising chart of the New Moon. The New Moon (Sun/ Moon) is in the ninth house conjunct Uranus - The focus this month is on global affairs, and international markets. Foreign affairs, foreign trade, overseas traffic by sea and air are matters of the ninth house.
With the New Moon conjunct Uranus, square Jupiter, and square Pluto, events may be surprising, confusing, unrestrained, and reactionary. This energy creates conditions that cause great volatility in the markets.
Uranus is as unpredictable as lightning. In one of my previous articles, I wrote of what Charles E. O. Carter, the great Twentieth Century British Astrologer, had to say in the book, Mundane Astrology, The Astrology of Nations and States, "Uranus represents the administration of power, the administrative officers of the State and all their functions." Additionally Carter states, "Uranus rules power on the physical plane - dynamos and all power generators." With such electric energy, Uranus is as unpredictable as lightning. When afflicted by difficult aspects Uranus is rebellious and anarchic.
Jupiter's energy is expansive and excessive - typically, Jupiter is favorable, but it can make mountains out of molehills, and when challenged will over-react.
Pluto can be very destructive, using a scorched earth policy whenever it faces noncompliance.
The houses that come into play with the T-square involving the new Moon are: ninth, eleventh, and the fifth. All matters of these houses will be influenced, and that includes a long list! To name a few: corporations, courts of law, foreign affairs, foreign trade, religion and clergy, overseas traffic; stock and commodity exchanges; entertainment, education, gambling, and investments!
