Nodes of the Dow

Sometimes it is fun to quote yourself. Winter Solstice 2009 I wrote an article for the NCGR Journal "The Nodes and Financial Astrology" pg. 30

My original research for the article appears in The Textbook for Financial Astrology IV. Here is a portion of the article I wrote after four of my colleagues sent E mails explaining to me that my research article should be in the next edition of the Journal.

Financial Astrology Gibberish

Will the Index continue to march back to its former highs? The Neptune Jupiter Chiron trio returns to their conjunction with the Index North Node as of December 10, 2009. Too much of a good thing and the index reverses?

Oct 9, 2007 was a reversal date and the market fell 10% only to return up 8% then on Dec. 10 the market reversed to go down 52% on March 9, 2009. the Dec 10th North node was within a degree and a half of a nodal return.

An aside to the study was twice nodal returns indicated a market up 10%. An interesting statistic however there were three nodal returns where there was no effect. The nodal return on January 1, 2008 did not mark a reversal date and the market continued its downward trend. Venus had just passed the South Node which it does once a year, but the Nodes were moving to a nodal return that would be exact January 1, 2008 and the Feb eclipse would was 17 Aquarius. The Dow average plummeted 12% . The March 2, 2008 trouble was in the wind but the Nodal return was still in effect . The Dow began its precipitous fall. May 2, 2008 from 13,000 to March 3, 2009 at 6600 or over 60%.

The nodal return was four degrees from exact and transiting Saturn was within 3 degrees of the Index South Node. The July eclipse would fall on Jupiter so a reversal seemed unlikely. The fall of Lehman Brothers on Sept 15,2008 and no aspects appeared to be available to break the fall. The January 28, 2009 eclipse would be opposed Jupiter a possible break.

The low happened on March 3, 2009 and the South node made a conjunction to Jupiter on April 20, 2009. The first ‘V’ was in and the Dow would move up 25% in the weeks that followed.

Second "V" in the Dow?

Will there be a second ‘V’ ? The next eclipse in January 15 at 25 Capricorn and it is followed by an eclipse on July 11 at 20 Cancer. There are a lot of transits in between to cause trouble for the Dow, but enough to cause a significant reversal of trend?

Oh let’s just speculate that all is quiet on the Dow until the Nodes move to Sagittarius and Gemini in 2011 and the next eclipse is 11 degrees Gemini June 1,2011 is conjunct the Sun Pluto conjunction of the Dow index. On that eclipse Uranus will also be conjunct the Index Mars. Within a month of the aspect expect a reversal of trend and make your stops secure.

Conclusion: The dates provided by Smith Barney are the actual dates for highs and lows in the Index. The dates I have mentioned under Gibberish might not fit their exact criteria, but they are close enough for nodal work. The Dow Index does not always set the tone of the market and there are numerous factors that influence its rise and fall. However the transiting nodes and eclipses have a pretty good track record.

Sample of online chat with student

I'm posting a few lines from "H's" class on August 9, 2010 to give you an opportunity to see how an online chat room class works. When committing the time and money to a new idea sometimes it helps to see a portion of an actual class in Financial Astrology.
I believe in applying the topics covered by the lesson to the current financial news.

Below is a sample of a small part of Lesson 4

KayeS: we are being hoodwinked big time an we have been for the past 3 years while Neptune has been hovering around our Moon
H: hoodwinked.
H: ok. got it.
KayeS: I think everyone is feeling it
H: news like this fromo HP was such a huge surprise
H: there have to be many more shoes that drop at looser organizations
H: you hint at that in your blog
KayeS: today Nestles revealed that fellows hired by Mars shut down their most profitable line and I didn't finish reading the story
KayeS: corporate espionage
H: so we can expectmore strange revelatory news
KayeS: yes but watch your own stuff also
KayeS: Chris had a mystery charge on his phone bill that he would never have caught it he had auto bill pay
H: our contractorhas suddenly gotten a bit slippery aqfter nearly a year of being great
H: interesting.
KayeS: Yes and I think we are in for another 12 months and this country is going to be livid about a lot of slippery folks
H: so how do you translate a transit like that into a price swing in the stock?
KayeS: The Neptune opposed Moon
KayeS: is basically a red flag and then you look at the transits to the IPO
H: it seems a neptune transit of any kind is a red flag, no?
KayeS: Yes it is when you are looking at a corporate chart and HPQ is a real easy one to guess the price is going to be a problem
KayeS: from January through April 27 Jupiter makes one great aspect after another
H: because ne[tune has hit five planets while transiting aquarius?
KayeS: the in the IPO Neptune is conjunct Uranus not good and the Saturn makes 10 aspects in a row from Sept throug March
KayeS: right and Neptune loves slipping and sliding and deception
KayeS: HPQ should have a great year in 2012
KayeS: No Neptune transits and a string of Jupiter transits
KayeS: The company will get their act together and Miss triple Virgo is probably the heroine but in the meantime its not a good buy
KayeS: for the upside
KayeS: and it is too tricky for a short option
H: ...checking out the mean saturn will trine all those planets in gemini?
KayeS: right and they are going to squeeze every penny
KayeS: self-righteously
H: so for a short option, neptune isn't good either, I guess--you need a clearer signal that the price will go down, huh?
KayeS: It will be in interesting stock to track Neptune will fuzz up the option
H: right. so for a short do you look for clean saturn transits, or uranus if the company looks precarious?
KayeS: when you put your money down it is a good idea to avoid Neptune transits of any kind to the IPO chart as well as the Inc chart
KayeS: Right saturn is slow so you would need to give it some time on the option for day trading you need another planet or two
H: what do you look for? maybe a mercury transit (bad news reports breaking??) or mars (something with the workforce??)
KayeS: Mars is a bit slow also but you are right about Mercury and the day trader who uses astrology has to keep a sharp eye out for the Moon
KayeS: That is why we put the calendar on our blog for the Moon transits
H: the moon = the fickle market??
KayeS: Moon means always changing never name a company or a horse after the Moon Friday was a perfect day to illustrate a moon transit and it was on our blog

Before your first class we meet for a practice lesson.

Fiscal Cents - Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign

Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign For the Lunar Month Beginning September 8, 2010 - Your Astrological Horoscope and Financial Outlook by Kaye Shinker
The New Moon is in Virgo. The Sun will enter the sign of Libra 14 days later on September 22nd at 11:09 pm EDT.
Happy Solar Return to everyone born under the sign of Libra, and Virgos still celebrating!

This Month For Libra
People actually tell you that you are a nice person, and they aren’t even fishing to borrow money. You are entirely focused on earning money and you do not care whether you earn it using your muscles or your brain. Your main goal is to stay busy and earn cash.

If you are a Libra Sun, born September 22 through October 7, you need to keep working hard and continue saving your money. You can help yourself by working on contract instead of by the hour. Saturn in your sign makes it easy for you to stay organized. 

NOTE!  Mercury went Retrograde August 20 and will go Direct September 12. Mercury's retrograde period often brings a certain level of confusion, unexpected events, frustrations, delays and blockages in communications, transportation, and trade. If your birthday is August 20 through September 12, you will have Mercury Rx in your Solar Return - which means that you will be spending this birthday year doing everything twice! (Note: Marley, a Gemni, has had Mercury Rx in her Solar Return many times and found it to be a year of much contemplation, and looking back. Her key to dealing with those years of Mercury Rx was to be focused and be able to roll with the punches!)

If you are a late Virgo Sun, (born September 8 through September 21) Happy Solar Return! You will be very busy taking care of yourself for a change. Time to look after yourself and dress for success!

On the web site you will find the article, Venus- Money in Your Chart. Be sure to read it for directions on How to Construct an Astrological Treasure Chest.

More for Virgo,  and 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.

The New Moon in Virgo

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:

The New Moon in Virgo, September 8, 2010 at 6:30 am EDT Washington, D.C.

This is a powerful super New Moon (moon is perigee) and promises further weather disturbances along the path of the January and July eclipses. The ring of fire is also under severe pressure with earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity. Traders should keep the world weather map on their front page.

New Moon in the 1st house (see chart )

Folks will concentrate on their own projects and feel that it is important to be responsible for their own welfare and well being. It is a "clean it up" New Moon where folks will be concerned with taking care of their own home and work place.

Saturn in the 1st house
Unemployment continues to remain high, but people are finding alternative opportunities to put their energy to use. They contact former employers and find interesting part time employment. They also sell surplus belongings and find ways to actually turn some into artwork. Ingenuity is key here.

Mars in the 2nd house
Stock exchanges are under pressure throughout the world. Government bonds will attract buyers as a safe haven. People are thrifty with their disposable income. Retail businesses will find the higher profit margin of generic brands are helpful to their bottom line. Currencies are volatile, therefore study your favorite before buying or selling.

Venus in the 2nd house
The underground economy is felt everywhere. Folks continue to use every way possible to avoid taxes by finding local supplies. Buyers insist on value and this will include investments. Now is a good time for entrepreneurs to organize their business plan and evaluate their markets. The phrase "egg money" may be taken literally.

Pluto in the 4th house
Weather along the East Coast of the USA is a problem as tropical storms from the east and the south converge with storms from the west. Solar storms are also active and could threaten satellite transmissions. The suggestion is keep your pantry well stocked, your computer backed up, and check out the latest in surge protectors.

Neptune in the 6th house
Be careful! Deception is rampant. There are some rather slick salesmen out there anxious to hold your investment capital. It will take a few more months for their dishonesty to be exposed. The best investment is your talent and your education. Double check the sources of information and surf the internet. Common sense is really difficult to obtain this month. Do not let folks with fancy degrees influence any decision. Research is required.

Uranus in the 7th house
It is a time for very unusual problems concerning products and their relationship with the public. The usual PR campaigns do not work. Folks are very skeptical and insist on a demonstration of sincerity from either a product or a service. Unusual partnerships are forming as a result, therefore be aware.

Jupiter in the 7th house
This is really a difficult time to start a new partnership of any kind. But not a bad time for discussions of new partnership ideas. Again be careful of so called experts trying to control your money. In financial astrology “no” is an excellent word and far more valuable to our research than “maybe”.

Mercury in the 12th house
Mercury will turn direct on September 12. It is OK to tear up your old shopping list and make a new one. Information about investments will require some effort on your part all month. Read the fine, fine, fine print before you make a purchase. Double check the astrological charts also.

Hedge fund managers continue to fold their tent and leave Wall Street.
