EURO is Stressed Out

Wow the Euro is under pressure.  Financial Astrologers use the chart above as an indication of what is happening with the Euro. At first glance it appears to be a slow infusion of printing press generated inflation of the currency. 

First challenge to the Euro is transiting Saturn conjunct the ascendant until August 21, 2010 with transiting Jupiter opposed on the descendant.  The following stress aspect is Saturn square the Sun.  The best thing about tough Saturn aspects is that they tend to send the accountants to work and insist that the accountants finish the job.

Currently Jupiter square the Euro's Pluto is telling the European bankers to be very accurate in their assessment of the valuation of the currency.  Fortunately Jupiter is sextile the Euro's Sun. Therefore they could actually sit down and determine how many barrels of oil or ounces of gold a Euro should buy. The hope will be that the Saturn trine Neptune will help them tell the truth and explain exactly how they intend to solve the problem of failing state treasuries without diminishing the value of the currency.  There is hope that carefully executed plans will take advantage of this opportunity to assure creditors the Greeks etc. will not default. However, the sextile suggests that the plan is a bandaid and Far East creditors will be unhappy when they translate the provisions of the plan.  

April 22, 2010 has Jupiter conjunct Jupiter says the printing presses could be the immediate solution and inflation of the currency is advertised as a one time solution (Jupiter square Mercury). Basically the public decides to accept the solution after a few weeks of adamant discussions.  

Pluto on the IC during the entire summer forces the Euro to clean house. Paying energy bills with Euro's will be a major topic of discussion. Divesting the various governments of their padded payrolls will probably be a long task that is finalized in September 2011. (Saturn conjunct Mars)  Divesting the Euro banks of their directors and management (Saturn square Sun) will make headlines. It is easier to fire management and most will be scheduled to leave their offices by mid-October 2010.

The Euro's chart begins to improve with Jupiter trine the Sun in August 2011 and hopefully the final trine (March 2012) will find the administrators of the Euro will have worked to maintain the currency.  It will be difficult but they will have conquered the biggest problem of public confidence with Saturn trine the Moon and a public ready to allow the Euro to grow up during its first Saturn opposition.

On the bulletin board I discussed the current perils of the Dow.  My Textbooks for Financial Astrology contain charts that are relevant to our current financial crisis. A scary project is wandering through all of them circling planets at 9-10 Cardinal.
Previous discussions of the Euro and the Dollar can be found on this blog.  You can use the search box to make finding them a fairly easy task.

Fiscal Cents - Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign - Pisces

Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign For the Lunar Month Beginning February 13, 2010 - Your Astrological Horoscope and Financial Outlook
by Kaye Shinker

PiscesHappy Solar Return Pisces! And Best Wishes to all Aquarians still celebrating their Solar Returns. The New Moon is in Aquarius, however the Sun enters Pisces five days later on February 18th. If you are a Pisces Sun, this is your year Pisces. It is going to be confusing, but you can handle it. Just lock up your credit cards and let others bring you gifts. Make a wish list, or better yet, make an astrological Treasure Map. On the web site you will find the article, Venus - The Money in Your Chart, be sure to read it for directions on How to Construct an Astrological Treasure Chest.

If you are a late Aquarius Sun - born at the end of the Sun Sign Aquarius - continue to take good care of your electronic toys and keep their guarantees in a safe place. Find a place to recycle your old equipment - and your storage shed or basement is not an option! Take some time to relax and play; the next few months should find you solving a plethora of problems.

This Month For Pisces

Last month you practiced having fun, now do it for real. The New Moon weekend is filled with parties, try not to miss a single one. Join the crowd! You might also have some fun in the commodities market. Practice online trading before you actually put real money to work. You will be lucky with your investment ideas, but you have to do the research.

Advice for everyone - not just for Pisces! 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. 2010 is the year to watch for IPO's. Read the descriptions and start looking for great new inventions. Neptune is all alone in Aquarius, therefore everyone's computer fingers are in danger of being careless. Make it a practice to write your order into a notebook then triple check your order before you push the buy or sell button.

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.

Pisces, we suggest that you also read your Ascendant (your Rising sign), as well as your Sun sign on our web site - to read your sun sign's forecast on our web site go to:

For all other signs: Each Sun Sign has predictions of the challenges and successes for you during the month ahead in our Fiscal Cents column on the web site. (Remember to also read your Ascendant, or Rising sign, as well as your Sun sign!)

The New Moon in Aquarius

Read this New Moon report in it's entirety at
New Moon forecasts show the general trends and financial outlook for the month; here is what Kaye Shinker has to say for the month ahead:

New Moon in Aquarius 2010
The New Moon in Aquarius, Saturday, February 13, 2010 at 9:51 PM EST Washington D.C.

February 14 is both the Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger) and Valentines Day.

February 16 is Mardi Gras.

The New Moon and three joyous Holidays within a space of 4 days! So here's wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Valentines Day. Have a Very Merry Mardi Gras and laissez les bon temps rouler! (That's Louisiana Cajun French for "Let the Good Times Roll!")

Laugh with your children, enjoy amusing entertainment, and live life to the fullest. Laugh until you are rolling on the floor.

The New Moon Appears in the Fifth House of this chart. The fifth house is fun, laughter, and giggles. It is the house of children, theater, amusements, education, gambling, and commodities.

The New Moon means it is time for a fresh new start, a new beginning, a new attitude. In Aquarius, in the fifth, it means technological fun.

Something new is on the horizon and everyone with internet access will think this is just the best thing since sliced bread. Life is short, it is time to use all those smiley face glyphs : )).

Neptune in the Fifth House

Theater, the arts and casino receipts will increase as folks determine it is time to spend their spare cash on having a good time. The fact that three huge celebrations come together after the New Moon helps add to the creativity of parades, feasts, and musical entertainment. Folks will decorate everything in order to make their neighbors smile. Chiron, the Maverick, remains conjunct Neptune which means unique creative ideas will eventually win. Example, the popularity of Avatar. Go ahead Smile.

Venus in the Fifth House

Award ceremonies proliferate and for a change the popular attraction wins. People are earning money from their labors. They are finding ways to recycle all sorts of rubbish and sell their junk for extra income. Opportunities are everywhere for those who keep their eyes wide open. Vendors are earning cash with their push carts filled with interesting fun toys.

Jupiter in the Fifth House

Children are well behaved and actually teaching their parents and teachers about the world of technology. Entertainment ventures are making a profit as folks with cabin fever are spending their extra cash on tickets. Speculative adventures are doing just fine. New businesses are collecting plenty of cash and many are making news as a result. Traders on the various exchanges are making good decisions and getting excellent ideas as to where to invest their money. In each book of the Textbook for Financial Astrology, I offer lists of where to look when Jupiter transits Pisces.

Uranus in the Sixth House

Weird compensation changes are happening in the uniform service sector. Strange pets are being investigated and laws concerning their captivity are proposed. Take care of all minor abrasions. If you need to employ technology proficient personnel, this would be a good time to find them. Employment contracts have strange conditions, therefore read the fine print. This is a good time to rewrite your resume with an emphasis on your creativity and adaptability. Unimaginable job descriptions are currently under construction.

Mars in the Tenth House

Mars is opposed to Mercury, and that means everyone is shouting at each other. It is difficult to hear what each person is saying. Executives are shouting at the customers and the customers are shouting at the executives. Mars fills the executive board rooms and governments with euphonious wars of words. Everyone disagrees about how to proceed. Discussions are endless.

Markets trade in a narrow range as a result. Traders just shake their heads. Investors remind themselves that markets anticipate the economy by six to eight months. Mars retrograde at least limits the amount of energy behind the verbal tirades, but when Mars goes direct (March 10th) the battle for power will begin.

Saturn in the Twelfth House

Accounting scandals concerning public institutions are discussed in every media. There is a sense of fairness that is being violated by greed, incompetent bookkeeping and disreputable hired officials. Solutions will be proposed and some will actually be enacted. Folks will demand openness concerning the institutions in their community as well as nation.

Pluto in the Third House

Old media just can't keep up with new media. Those employed by old media are finally making the transition and becoming actively involved in sharing their knowledge. Imagination dominates.

Folks are once again shopping for replacement vehicles. The opportunity seems to be in used cars and trucks.

Mercury in the Fourth House

Negotiations concerning home sales will be challenging. Windy weather slows the planting of crops for farmers in the Southern states. Windy weather in the Northeast is a problem for travelers.

Earthquake and volcanic activity continues throughout the Caribbean.
