LLewellyn Sun Sign Annual

I contributed the article "Sunspot Explosion in 2010" to the 2010 Sun Sign Book published by Llewellyn.  The 2010 Sun Sign Book includes a daily horoscope for each Sun sign and as well as a few feature articles. It may be purchased at Amazon.com by scrolling to the bottom of this page.

Forecasting weather trends is an essential element in Financial Astrology. During the past few years, I have mentioned the Sun Spot cycle in articles and blogs. Wherever I lecture I hand out graphs illustrating the sun spot cycle over the past 400 years. The graphs include an illustration of the conjunction of Jupiter with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. These conjunctions often coincide with the peak of Sun activity. 

We are currently in a deep solar minimum that is setting records for the coolest summer on record in many northern hemisphere communities.  Has the Sun Spot cycle failed? Will the Spots return?  From the point of view of the Sun, Jupiter and Neptune make a conjunction in mid September. From the point of view of the Earth they make their final conjunction December 2009. 

Jupiter will oppose Saturn three times in 2010
During May and June of 2010 Jupiter will move to an opposition with Saturn and then to a conjunction with Uranus. Is it possible that the Sun will suddenly erupt with a rash of spots? Statistics warn that this is very possible. 

The article retells the legends of Arctic groups concerning the weather they expect when the Northern Lights stream across the evening sky.  Their legends explain that colorful Auroras bring an abundant supply of game animals.

"Sunspot Explosion in 2010" is the article. Read it in the 2010 Sun Sign Book published by Llewellyn. It may be purchased at Amazon.com by scrolling to the bottom of this page and while you are there don't forget your 2010 Calendar

The 2nd Cancer New Moon of 2009 - Solar Eclipse

The Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse
by Kaye Shinker

New Moon forecasts show general trends and financial outlook for the month; here is the overview of the month ahead.Subscribe to our newsletter if you would like to receive the next forecast before the next New Moon.

The 2nd New Moon in Cancer of 2009 appears July 21, at 10:34 p.m. EDT in Washington D.C.

Follow the path of the eclipse by going to http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEpubs/IAU233.html

“The weather of that day will stay that way” is the saying that goes with the path of the eclipse. Usually the path indicates an area very vulnerable to violent weather. Example: The 2005 eclipse was visible in New Orleans and Katrina pounded the city causing the levees to break.

I follow www.spaceweather.com everyday and unless Jupiter and Neptune can talk the Sun into producing more spots then it is unlikely CME’s (Coronal Mass Ejection) will be a problem.

But, sun spots can form quickly! And any CME aimed at these emerging markets could devastate the entire region.

More likely, since this is also a Super New Moon, are earthquakes and volcanic activity. (A New Moon is considered a Super New Moon when it is closest to the earth - or Perigee. )

Both tend to be isolated weather hazards, however, volcanic ash tends to circle at high altitudes for a long time causing cool wet weather. An example is Sarychev, a Russian volcano, that whirled around the globe - and even the internet! - in June 2009. There are plenty of volcanos beneath the path of the eclipse, http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=24&month=06&year=2009

Solar Eclipse in Corporate Horoscopes

The effect of an eclipse on Incorporation charts and IPO charts is interesting to watch. If you have The Textbook for Financial Astrology, Textbook 3, watch the charts of the Dow 30 as the eclipse hits various planets in their charts. For example, the Incorporation chart for Boeing shows the Sun at 26 degrees Cancer, three degrees from the eclipse point. GM has Saturn at 29 Cancer.

Fiscal Cents for Leo

Here is what Kaye Shinker predicts for Leo this month!

Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign For the Lunar Month Beginning July 21, 2009 Happy Solar Return to everyone born under the sign of Leo!

This New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse at 29° 26' Cancer. It is the Second New Moon in Cancer of 2009; the Sun will ingress into the sign of Leo on July 22, 2009.

If you are an early Leo, (born between July 22 to the 25th) the next few months should be very dramatic. You will find it important to write a list of your new goals and reset your priorities.

If you are a late Cancer Sun, (born between July 17th to July 21) Since the New Moon is at 29 Cancer some of you late Cancer Suns are still celebrating. The eclipse tells you to expect that your family will aggravate you so try to be nice. Make time to enjoy your family and have lots of fun in your community.

Both groups: Make time to enjoy your family and have lots of fun in your community. Hope everyone showers you with birthday goodies.

This Month For Leo:

"How to get off the grid” is once again on your list of goals. Now you are having fun networking with friends and neighbors and trying ways to sell the concept. You have invited everyone to discuss your ideas and help you understand the concept. You are really having fun and maybe speculating on various investments. Be sure you have specific monetary goals before you jump into any market. Late Leo's need to remember to confirm their stops every trading day.

Advice - not just for Leos! During the past few years I have encouraged every Sun Sign to save some money, limit their trading with excellent stops and to develop hobbies. The reason is: September 2009.

Forewarned is forearmed!

If you live in area where there is a potential for earthquakes, volcanic activity, hurricanes, or tornados, it is a good idea to be ready with your favorite emergency supplies and a box for your computer and important papers. There is an exact semisextile of Uranus and Neptune which often foretells flooding.

On the web site you will find two articles: Money in Your Chart; and Jupiter and the Money In Your Chart, Part II of Money in Your Chart be sure to read them.

You should also read the article, Economic Implications of a Solar Eclipse in your Personal Horoscope. If you have a planet in late Cancer or early Leo be especially aware of the interpretations.

Other signs - Read your Sun Sign's predictions and your rising sign as well for this month!

Pluto Whacks Business

Pluto Whacks Business,
A lecture on Pluto in Capricorn
by Kaye Shinker
Pluto is said to rule the Mafia or gangsters. The mafia tends to take out members of rival groups as well as their own by whacking them.

Simply, that member no longer has a voice.

Pluto has a tendency to whack those thing ruled by the sign it is transiting. Then Pluto replaces what it has whacked with something similar yet entirely different.

Pluto doesn't just end things. To quote John Marcella, "He exorcises, detoxes, purges, obliterates and makes extinct the antiquated. And yes, He allows new forms to develop, evolve, emerge and unfold."

The roof caves in according the the things ruled by the sign when Pluto makes his entrance.

Listed on our web site at http://astrologicalinvesting.com/html/articles_pages/articles-plutowhacksbusiness.html are the years Pluto transited each sign during the Twentieth Century.

Pluto has started his transit of Capricorn by whacking the banking establishment. Banks over-extended their capital reserves with exotic paper using credit to expand their power and influence to a world wide market.
Federal Reserve

As with all things Plutonian, they overdid it and were forced to pull back or become extinct. The next few years will find their replacement as a new business model captures rapidly expanding technology.

Notice that natal Pluto is at zero Cancer and the Sun is at one Capricorn in this chart of the Federal Reserve. chart data: Dec. 23,1913, 6:20 pm EST, Washington, DC.

This is not the death of Capitalism, but a reorganization of the concept. The economic system may have a new name by the time Pluto enters Pisces.

I am speaking to this topic Thursday, July 16 at the Ohio Valley NCGR meeting near Cincinnati, Ohio. (Madeira Municipal Building, corner of Euclid and Miami Roads in Madeira - a suburb of Cincinnati) Meetings are free for members of any home chapter, and $5 for non members.

I continue in my speech to explain some of the options Pluto will manifest as he transits Capricorn whacking Big Business, governments, and institutions. Could he replace Big Business with Micro businesses? Or could he allow the Black Market to take responsibility for the exchange of goods?

If you can't join me in Cincinnati, a copy of my lecture is available on our web site, at www.astrologicalinvesting.com

Happy Solar Return USA


Nations have Birthdays therefore they can also have a Solar Return.  I use the USA July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pa. chart originally calculated by Sibley. Sibley heard about the Declaration of Independence several months after the event, calculated the chart and then published it.  It seems to work very well with events in the life of the nation.

The USA solar return for 2009 has the Sun in the 4th house. The nation will examine their basic values and make significant changes in lifestyle. Folks are taking responsibility for their own home and family and very proud of this accomplishment. Back to basics will be the mantra for retail advertising.  

The Solar Return Moon appears in the 8th house placing the USA natal Moon in the 11th. Change happens in the areas of taxes, insurance and the attendant paper work. The country seeks and finds new alliances as the problems of old friends affect international decisions. 

Mercury in the 3rd suggests problems with local travel and transportation. The auto industry has failed to consider their customers and prevailing demand for smart cars. There will be an emphasis on short classes where basic new skills are acquired. Portable electronics will dominate the landscape. 

Venus in the 2nd explains that personal income will be spent on practical clothing and decorative arts. The population continues to toss money in their savings accounts.  Americans pay cash for necessities. Debit cards are in fashion.

Mars in the 1st 
Everything is in a turmoil. Excess energy expresses itself with patriotic gatherings and concern for energy sources.  Folks will not be shy about their concerns for the environment and practical application of science to reduce energy consumption. Many will find ways to combine various resources in order to reduce the cost of utilities .

Jupiter is conjunct Neptune in the 11th.   The 11th is Congress in a nations horoscope. Both planets are retrograde, suggesting that legislators will have a difficult time trusting members to vote along party lines. Reliable legislators renege on their promises to their party in favor of their constituents.  (The congress will find Blue Dog democrats have returned) Secrets abound and therefore rumors of scandals will emerge, however the facts will not be known until next July. 

Saturn in the 6th forces everyone to work hard
Unemployment continues to be a problem, however many find constructive work in their own neighborhood.  Folks accomplish many improvements tearing down and building up with cash labor. Uniformed personnel are stressed and need to take care of their health, and get proper rest. Various strains of flu are ready to invade during the winter months. Those who have neglected to balance work and rest will be vulnerable.  Problem is Spring of 2009 and the swine flu failed to infect great numbers of people.  Now the "Chicken Little" syndrome is in effect as average folks ignore government health warnings.

Uranus in the 12th has folks deciphering secrets to create original money making schemes. Surprise they are demanding no help from government. Fear of diseases that are difficult to diagnose creates nervous tension.  The government makes a number of dramatic announcements to divert the attention of the population. UFO's are exposed? 

Mysterious forces are controlling world events
Pluto in the 9th suggests that international underground groups have devised a number of ways to undermine the world economy.  Many of their plans are successful. Folks put their plans for the future on hold as popular opinion insist that changes this time must be practical and useful. September is particularly rough. See Solstice report

Part 2 Easy Predictions with Solar Returns
Jupiter and Neptune conjunct the USA Moon.  Wisdom is tested and spiritual and emotional needs need to be kept within bounds. The conjunction also indicates a Religious Revival of US Citizens who finally recall the reasons for the 1st Amendment to the Constitution.

Mercury conjunct natal Venus. Assets are pointed out and the USA image is polished. Media attention is focused on the value of the dollar in relation to the other currencies. Diplomacy as well as good manners work for a change as kind words to others are taken as sincere.
