King Dollar ?

King is a Tough Position to Play.
When you are on the top everyone knows which way to aim their arrows. In this case it is almost prosaic. The dollar has Jupiter at 28 degrees in its ruling sign Sagittarius. Artists love to paint the symbolism of the sign. Half horse and half man drawing a bow with an arrow aimed at the sky. See Llewellyn 2010 wall calendar page for December 2010.

The Astrological Problem
The problem is transiting Saturn opposed transiting Uranus both squaring the Dollar's Jupiter on April 26, 2010. When planets are opposed to each other they can see each other but they can't hear the words the other speaks. Structures (Saturn) can see dramatic change (Uranus) but the structures cannot understand why Uranus insists on changing the neat and tidy way things are at this moment. Both are squaring the Dollar's Jupiter and challenging his dominance. Arrows are aimed from both directions at Jupiter.

November 4, 2008 the opposition of Saturn to Uranus was at 18 Virgo/Pisces (bail out the banks), February 5, 2009 the opposition was a 20 Virgo/Pisces (bail out the autos) and September 15, 2009 the opposition was at 24 Virgo/ Pisces (unemployment). April 26, 2010 is opposition #4 with #5 July 26, 2010 on the Aries point sometimes called the World Axis. Up to this point the opposition seems to have stirred the world of politics and the world of economics with the exposure of scandalous behavior of financial experts concerning the creation of unsustainable debt.

Debt Crisis
Neptune and Jupiter made a conjunction on the Dollar's Pluto December 21, 2009. Discussions concerning the mounting debt of the taxpayer have flourished. Every financial guru has lectured endlessly on the topic with circles and arrows that look like a football coach's play book. Financial reporters have worn out the zero key on their keyboard trying to explain the actual amount of indebtedness to the public. (Neptune=debt, Jupiter=expansion, Pluto=trillions of dollars) Textbook for Financial Astrology Lesson 5 Book 2.

Dollar Squared
The Dollar's new problem is squares. The opposition is applying to a square with Jupiter earned income. Jupiter represents money gathered in stacks. Example your monthly income. The Dollar is challenged to gather enough momentum to maintain its stacks. Jupiter in Sagittarius has plenty of arrows in his quiver but only one in his bow. He has to aim with precision at either the old structures or the disruptive constantly changing ones. Should he aim at Europe or Asia, the banks or technology, exports or imports.

Neptune conjunct the USA Moon
The opposition is challenging Jupiter's power, his energy and his ability to expand. The square is forcing the action. Simultaneously transiting Neptune is applying to a conjunction with the USA Aquarius Moon. Continued expansion of debt is the topic of the blog-a-sphere. Will Jupiter live to fight another day? HMMM. Saturn opposed Uranus will square the Dollar's Mars July 26,2010 two weeks following the eclipse to the Dollar's Moon. Looks like all out economic war during the summer with opposite sides aiming at the Dollar's value.

War of the Titans
In mythology there is the 10 year war of the Titans where finally Jupiter defeats Saturn. Neptune gave his brother Jupiter a hand in the battle. Neptune the planet of deception is conjunct the Moon of the USA chart, maybe the USA public will be deceived by the financial Titans and yet again willingly add to their debt. They could also take the challenge of the square and fight the Titans with the courage of Jupiter. However, Mercury is Retrograde and deception is rampant. Joseph Campbell tells the story in The Masks of the Gods or you can Google it for a rough outline of the tale.

? Whether to play the Dollar long or short. Answer: Don't play Mercury is retrograde. There are three inflation hedges; precious metals, vacant land, and stocks. However you might consider purchasing sterling silver place settings (check the hallmark ; ). Classes via online chat available beginning March 29, 2010.

Fiscal Cents - Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign - Aries

Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign For the Lunar Month Beginning March 15, 2010 - Your Astrological Horoscope and Financial Outlook
by Kaye Shinker

AriesHappy Solar Return Aries! And Best Wishes to all Pisces still celebrating their Solar Returns.

The New Moon on March 15 appeared in Pisces, however the Sun enters the zodiac sign of Aries five days later on March 20, 2010.

The Sun enters Aries on the day of the Spring Equinox, and depending upon the year, the Equinox can be on March 21st or March 20th. The 2010 Spring Equinox is March 20, 1:32 pm EDT

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.

Aries, you are promised the weirdest year of your life. It is going to be challenging, and be prepared for the outrageous! If you take care of each challenge as it appears then you will have a prosperous summer and a wonderful 2011.

And you Pisceans, take care of your paperwork and complete all the promises made during the past month. Double check your tax forms and reread your insurance policies. This is your year Pisces.

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.

This Month For Aries

Aries, take the opportunity to give yourself a four day week-end. Get out a town and learn something new. Your earned income is just fine for now so enjoy a bit of time off from the routine.

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!)

Goldman Sachs

This is the IPO chart for Goldman Sachs on the day the company went public and sold shares of their stock. Note that the time is 10:39, one hour and nine minutes past the opening bell. This means that the offer had so many buyers that the exchange needed the extra time to sort out the requests for shares of the stock. Therefore the sale of the first share did not take place until 10:39. 

The reason I mention this is Vulcanus a hypothetical planet is exactly conjunct the Ascendant. Vulcanus is believed to be very powerful and sets up a trend of increased value when near a personal point in a chart.  In this case the Ascendant is that personal point. Goldman Sachs has had plenty of publicity concerning the talents of its personnel and their ability to decipher the various aspects of the marketplace.

January 29, 2010 GS price $154 transiting Saturn was trine natal Neptune and Neptune has just passed the trine to natal Venus both minor red flags.   This aspect will reappear Sept. 3, 2010 and by that point in time the price could go down again 5%.  Since January 29, 2010 the price of GS has increased to $171 per share and the aspects of transiting Jupiter and Uranus have been positive ending with a Jupiter sextile the natal Sun this week. The volume has been steady and I would expect the price to continue rising slowly until September.

Everything in the chart of GS appears to be favorable for the price of the stock. The fact that Vulcanus is transiting the ascendent adds to the increase power and the energy reserve of the company to influence the marketplace.

Thank you Vinod for asking the question.  In my Textbook for Financial Astrology I discuss various RED FLAGS.
