Aries Fiscal Cents

Aries is getting clobbered by the Venus retrograde. And to make matters worse it is during the solar return for Aries which means they have to squeeze every penny twice until their next birthday. About half of the Pisces Sun Sign have the same problem including me therefore empathy is available.
Until April 17 each Sun Sign is suffering with Venus Retrograde. Venus in Aries finds all sorts of reasons to be depressed, tired, anxious, and miserable. In financial astrology Venus represents earned income and what the government doesn't take off the top, new excise taxes and higher insurance premiums will.

Aries New Moon begins March 24, 2009
Fiscal Cents predictions begin with the New Moon.

Happy Solar Return to Everyone born in the sign of Aries.
Venus turned retrograde in Aries on March 9 making life very challenging for Aries. It will turn direct on April 17. If you are born between March 8th and April 17 then Venus retrograde will appear in your Solar Return. This means that during the year ahead you will have to work twice as hard to earn your money. However the house placement of Venus retrograde in your Solar Return will be very important. Easy Predictions with Solar Returns gives excellent delineations to guide you through the year. Every Sun Sign should be extra cognizant of the need to save the receipts for every item purchased. Basically Venus transiting the sign Aries is always a challenge. Each Sun Sign has to expend every bit of extra energy just to get started on a project.
On the web site you will find the article that delineates the house position of your natal Venus, Money in Your Chart, be sure to read it.

Aries: Venus is in Aries for a long time this year, therefore take advantage of every opportunity to earn money. Keep your cash out of your sight preferably in a bank. You have once again been pushed into a leadership position. This would be a good month to take a few classes then teach your employees everything you learned.
Follow the link for Fiscal Cents predictions for all the Sun Signs.
We suggest that you also read your Rising Sign as well as your Sun Sign.

Animated View of Venus retrograde is a great animation of the night sky for all of you that live under urban light pollution. I found this at one of my favorite web sites
I follow the sunspot count to predict economic trends. Solar maximums usually signal the end of a growth in industrial production and we are at a very prolonged minimum. In other words the cycles are not making sense. I'm suggesting that there must be an underground economy about to appear in a fashion similar to the personal computer industry.
Looking around the solar system some odd events have occured recently. The large red spot on Jupiter ate some newly formed white spots and then became smaller. Usually astrology gives Jupiter credit for weight gain among earthlings. Could it be that when Jupiter eats, he loses weight? Recently Ice caps reformed on Mars. With higher power telescopes available scientests will probably find other anomolies.

Keep your $ safe

Venus Retrograde continues through April 17th.
Venus according to financial astrology represents earned income and when she is retrograde she is busy researching all sorts of new ideas as to how to increase the supply of earned income. For example: the Japanese curious to know why cars were not selling engaged some researchers to find out why young people did not choose to spend $8100 per year in taxes and insurance just for the convenience of owning a car.
Venus retrograde is pushing everyone to rethink their budgets. People are discussing ways to add to their earned income, ways to spend their income judiciously and ways to profit from the resources they have available. Hopefully they are all taking notes and discovering hidden gems within their own environment.
Venus retrograde is also helping folks understand where they are throwing money and resources into a black hole. Whether it is an environmental problem or just wasted pennies around the house. Paper towels, plastic containers, leftovers are essentially trash waiting to happen. Small changes in habits and household routines eliminate the wasted money. People are also learning about using time and energy efficiently and trying evaluate ways to economize.
Individuals should take a look at the placement of Venus in their chart to obtain further information. For Example:Venus in the ninth might spend the retrograde period exploring the internet looking for ways to earn money sharing their knowledge. Click here to read my article on Money in Your chart
All economies are engaged in quite a bit of introspection into the elements of what is a wealthy nation. Hopefully by April 17th we will have enough answers to begin working on projects that accomplish the task.

New Moon in Aries, March 26, 2009 - Kaye Shinker's New Moon forecast

New Moon in Aries, March 26, 2009Here's wishing you all a Fun April Fools Day, a Festive Passover, and a Happy Easter!

The Aries New Moon occurs on Thursday March 26, 2009. New Moon chart set for 12:06 PM EDT Washington D.C.

Humpty Dumpty rules this month as corporations begin to spin off their various subsidiaries and divisions.

The New Moon appears in the 10th house
Think optimistic. Corporate America's leaders seem to have their act together which inspires some confidence. Leaders are able to propose plans that have enough detail to satisfy the demand of market critics. They are also looking for calculated risks to acquire new products. Others are looking to divest their businesses of troublesome products or divisions. CEO's are working hard to add value to their products and services. Some are very involved in getting a divorce from government.

Venus retrograde in the 10th
Venus starts the month retrograde and suggests that the CEO's and CFO's review every source of income for their operation. They need to review every detail and discuss new ideas with managers. Tough decisions will be forced and a plan required after Venus turns direct. It is also a good idea to recheck the math on tax returns.

A special note to those who have birthdays from March 6th to April 17. It is not a good time to buy a house and those who have a Solar Return during this time period will need to put off expensive new purchases until your 2010 birthday. Venus retrograde through the houses is delineated in Easy Predictions with Solar Returns, by Deanna Rose. Look up your Solar return and note the house where Venus appears then read the message for Venus retrograde in that particular house.

(The financial implications of Venus retrograde is covered in The Textbook for Financial Astrology )

Read the rest in it's entirety at which includes Kaye Shinker's interpretations of the Washington D.C. chart placements for:
Mercury in the 10th
Uranus in the 10th
Mars in the 9th
Neptune in the 9th
Jupiter in the 8th
Pluto in the 6th
Saturn in the 3rd

Neptune Hoists Red Flags

Fraud at every level of society is rampant, Neptune is in a really bad mood and Jupiter isn't helping.
News analysts and reporters have reported numerous scandals and Ponzi schemes throughout the past few months. They summarize the reports with the warning that you must make your own decisions, remember to be diversified and if it SOUNDS too good to be true it probably IS.

The Astrology
Current transits for the world are Jupiter applying to a conjunction with Neptune and Chiron. In addition Neptune is transiting the USA Moon (public) until February 2012. The public is susceptible to fraud, and deceit and Saturn is forcing transparency as it travels past the USA Neptune and to a conjunction with the USA Saturn . The USA 4th of July chart has suffered since November when Saturn applied to the USA Neptune and Neptune applied to the USA Moon.( July 1979 and July 1980 were the previous transits of Saturn to USA Neptune.)

The exposure of scandals are just getting started. Whenever Mercury is direct new scandals will be exposed. Sometimes they will make the national news, but local businesses are not exempt.

Scattered throughout the various New Moon and Ingress reports that I write for I mention The Textbook for Financial Astrology. I wrote the Textbook for traders, investors and astrologers to enable each to use the information provided by the cycles of the planets to make intelligent decisions when purchasing various investments. Read each New Moon report carefully as Saturn is approaching Libra announcing changes in the Dow, the New York exchange and the NASDAQ.

I mention at the bottom of Page 1 in Book 1 of The Textbook for Financial Astrology.
"Most of us start investing because we have earned enough money to put some away in an IRA or Keogh or other type of retirement account. What ever happened to the high interest rates on a Certificate of Deposit--nice, safe,no-brainer? Suddenly we're required to make a decision There are so many options. Do you buy stocks, bonds, or mutual funds? If you study the business section of the newspaper, the advertisers and writers have millions of suggestions for you."

Who ever told you you were too stupid to manage your own money? If you are clever enough to make the money then you are clever enough to manage your own investments.

If you are clever enough to earn a good living with a little bit left over to invest, then you are should be clever enough to take care of your own financial accounts. You pay your bills and shop intelligently then you are smart enough to learn the material in my Textbook.

It is a tremendous leap of faith to write a check and allow an adviser to invest your hard earned money in the risky business known as the financial markets.

If you have learned the foreign language known as Astrology, you are undoubtedly astute enough to learn and comprehend the language of financial markets. If your are able to learn the foreign language known as Finance, then undoubtedly you are astute enough to learn and comprehend the language of astrology.

My Textbooks take you through both languages step by step. I am always happy to answer your questions and classes are available.

The Spring Equinox, March 20, 2009

This is the chart set for Washington D.C.

In her report on the Spring Equinox, Kaye Shinker writes, "May you live in interesting times is an ancient Chinese Curse. Interesting times are promised as we work our way to the Summer Solstice and the planets move out of a very tight stellium and spread across the zodiac."

In her report she discusses what we can expect over the next three months from the point of view of this Washington D.C. chart.

Notice the 12th house emphasis. Whenever the Sun is in the 12th house it illuminates all 12th house things. In other words, as Kaye points out, "The Spring equinox finds the Sun shining its light on all things hidden." Read the report on the Astrological Investing web site...

Michael Munkasey Database

Michael Munkasey's work has long been an invaluable asset to the astrological community.

In May 2008, Mr. Munkasey received the Marion D. March Regulus Award for Discovery and Innovation and Research - an award that recognizes those who have developed new tools or concepts to advance the study and practice of astrology.

With great sadness, we have been informed that the cost to continue updates to his database - at an exorbitant amount of approximately $1,300 per month - has resulted in a decision to end to his updates.

The AMEX was purchased by the NYSE last October, and as of March 2, 2009, they have been integrating their web actions and information into the NYSE web site. AMEX data used to be free, but as of March 2, 2009 it charges $300 per month for access to this formerly free data. The NYSE cut off its free data over a year ago and (now charging $500 a month), and the NASDAQ cut off their free data about three years ago (now charging $500 per month).

His work was very, very much appreciated. It will be a tremendous loss for all the financial astrologers of the world.

Michael Munkasey's Company Data will still be able to be purchased on our website, but only with updates through March 2009.

Austin Astrologers Retreat with Chris Brennan

Texas Retreat at the Margaret Austin sponsored by the Austin Astrologers Feb. 27 through March 1 featuring lectures by Chris Brennan. He is absolutely an excellent teacher. The topic was the ancient predictive methods of Hellenistic Astrology. An extra treat came with Maria Mateus's explanation of the constellations bright and glorious in the Texas night time skies. The Crescent Moon conjunct Venus added drama to the sky show.

I believe that the ancient astrologers such as Vettius Valens had to be fast and accurate to survive. We know the best customers of the ancient astrologers were sea captains sailing the perilous Mediterranean. Therefore I'm always searching for business astrology clues as I read the translations. I have found scattered throughout the ancient literature some of aphorisms that work with today's corporate charts. This was especially true concerning the place of a planet's Joy. I've found a few other interesting bits and pieces in the writings and I knew a bit of active listening to Chris would add to my list of ancient truisms.

Chris understands the ancient writings and therefore very able at explaining the discoveries of Project Hindsight.

What did I learn this time?

There is an interesting technique that may be applied to individual stocks. Annual Profections determine the time lord of the year. It is a very quick technique. Using the ascendant plus the age of the company enables you to calculate the planet that will dominate the company chart during the year. Example: Intel was 20 years old on March 1. It has Taurus rising and is ruled by Venus, In its 20th year its time lord is Capricorn or Saturn. In the Intel Incorporation chart Saturn is opposed to the Sun suggesting management changes throughout the year.

Using the planet that is lord of the year you can quickly examine the condition of the planet in the companies chart. It is a quick study to check all of these Profections with the Company charts. 39 year old Wal Mart has Sagittarius rising and the current lord of the year is Pisces or Jupiter. In my Textbook for Financial Astrology I include the Incorporation charts for the Dow 30.

March 1st came in like a Lion even in Texas, and we gazed at Leo rising above the eastern horizon with Aries just above the western horizon. The fierce windy cold weather was on the attack. Aries will rise in the east March 31.

Oh, the food was absolutely excellent. Melanie has a superior knack at herding astrologers. (similar to herding cats).
I had a great time.

Sun in Pisces - What a Day for a Day Dream..

My age is probably showing, but since the Sun entered Pisces on February 18th, I've found myself singing lyrics to the song, "Day Dream", by the Lovin' Spoonful; and I can't get the song out of my head!

"What a day for a day dream,

What a day for a day dreamin' boy.

And I'm lost in a day dream..."

Venus turning retrograde March 6th strikes a chord with the irony found in the second verse...

"And even if time is passin' me by a lot,

I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got.

Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load.

A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad. "

In this Bear market, how much dues do we have to pay for being sleepy BULL toads!

Venus ruler of Taurus, rules our values and money; and in financial astrology, Venus rules the value of stocks.

83% of the time significant trading cycles will unfold within four days of Venus retrograde. (read Raymond Merriman, The Ultimate Book on Stock Market Timing, Volume 3: Geocosmic Correlations to Trading Cycles )

On our web site, (Financial Articles, The World At Large January 2009 report ), Randall Ashbourne makes us aware that March 7th to the 8th are dates likely to coincide with a key reversal in the stock market.

We can't let unrealistic hopes and dreams - naturally representative of Pisces energy - allow us to be loose with our money in the market, especially now!

Take advantage of any rally but keep your stops tight!

Is it possible that we are incapable of waking from our daydreams this year?
You may want to read Kaye Shinker's article The Money in Your Chart and Jupiter and the Money In Your Chart, Part II of Money in Your Chart to discover how your horoscope can help you profit from the economic crisis.

"And you can be sure that if you're feelin right

A day dream will last a long time into the night.

Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears,

Or you may be dreamin' for a thousand years"....
