Gold, Euro, Dollar

Time to look at these charts again.
May 20, 2010 I posted a blog with the astrological charts for the Euro, the Dollar, and Gold. Now that 6 months have passed financial astrologers are still stuck on the same topic. The Euro has returned to +$1.35, the Federal Reserve has returned to its quantitative easing, and gold has surged to +$1350 per troy ounce.

As to transits there is very little stopping gold from moving up in price especially with the Sun moving from the MC to the Asc. Of course this transit is shown in the seasonal rise of gold prices during the holiday season. Saturn squares Mercury and itself during December thus keeping speculation rather tame but Jupiter is making aspects to every planet as it moves into Aries. Feb 2012 is the deadline for goldbugs when they will have to make sure firm stops are in place. There are a lot of nuances in between where traders can jump in and out of gold with a chance for profits.

Problems with the Euro in November are the result of Jupiter square the Euro Moon along with Mars adding energy to the changes while he makes a conjunction to Pluto and Mercury. Mars and the Euro just do not like each other and every time Mars is conjunct one of the Euro's planets the Euro becomes nervous and loses a few cents. However the Euro and Jupiter get along just fine. The Euro likes a good Jupiter transit. Therefore the Euro will solve the problems of the public's perception that members are not able to pay the interest on loans made to the banks of member countries.
Jupiter was sextile Neptune through out August, the sextile Venus and square the Moon through October and in December it will be sextile Venus. Transiting Saturn square the Sun in trine Uranus has kept the price in a narrow range. Jupiter makes a string of positive aspects to the Euro planets through the first 6 months of 2011.

Neptune is finally leaving the conjunction to the USA Pluto and therefore the dollar may revive its status as a reserve currency. QE2 occurred Nov 10 with Venus conjunct its Sun and Mars conjunct its Venus therefore the concern that the markets are flooded with excess dollars. Jupiter transits January-July 2011 seem to show an increase in the value of the dollar. This increase may very well be connected to the price of oil since Neptune is sextile Jupiter and Mars throughout this period of time. Natural gas and other green energy products may reduce the price of oil and therefore increase the value of the dollar.

I think that after the January 4th solar eclipse the Dollar will hold its value through June. Lower oil prices will contribute to its value. The Euro will remain stable with their Central Bank slowly increasing the amount of Euro's available. Gold prices will move up slowly and remain below $1500 per ounce. You may disagree by posting a comment. Also check The Textbook for Financial Astrology Book 4 for Silver and commodities.

Chinese Currency

Yuan as Reserve Currency?

With the G20 meeting the IMF has announced a plan that would make China the third-strongest member. The position will allow China to take more responsibility as well as greater power
The North Node and Pluto are conjunct the Jupiter Mars conjunction of the chart for the Chinese Currency. Pluto has been near 3 Capricorn since 2009 and finally achieved its goal of bringing the Yuan/Renminbi as one of the reserve currencies for the world market.

The Yuan has risen 3% since July and over the past 5 years it is up nearly 25%. notice that in 2006 Jupiter moved across the Venus South Node conjunction of the Yuan and as it passed each planet through Sagittarius and Capricorn the Yuan gained value against the Dollar, Euro and Yen.

The transit of Saturn to the natal Pluto gave the currency power to its structure. It's Saturn return kept the Yuan on its path. Saturn moving to a conjunction with Neptune may provide the opportunity to allow the Yuan some flexibility with interest rates in China allowed to rise to prevent a bubble in real estate or stocks. As Saturn reaches the MC the Yuan should become fairly valued however that will be 2012. The Saturn transit will allow the Yuan to remain a reserve currency for about 10 years.

The IMF has made a valid decision as to the future of the Chinese currency and its ability to take responsibility for the value of the Yuan. But what about the IMF?

Currency Bubble?
Are we headed for a world wide currency bubble? Jeremy Grantham suggests it is a possibility in his interview on CNBC, Nov.11, 2010. Bubbles usually occur when Jupiter and Uranus are in Aries and that will occur March-June 2011. This blog will discuss sectors where bubbles might occur during the next few months. Charts for the dollar, and euro appear in The Textbook for Financial Astrology. Stay tuned to this blog.

QE2 & the Federal Reserve

Show Down at the G 20 in Seoul

The Federal Reserve and the Dollar are in for a rough few months ahead as the world's economic leaders voice their disapproval of the quantitative easing of the Dollar by the Federal Reserve.
Chinese officials are not to pleased with the Federal Reserves policy of QE 2. The Financial Times article details the comments of the Chinese officials as well as other members of the G20.

The Astrologers task is to discover from the charts for the Federal Reserve if this policy will work or will it spark a currency war. Will it perform as promised? Will it make USA goods abroad cheaper, and therefore increase domestic employment.

No War
Mars represents employment and the July 11, 2012 solar eclipse was conjunct the Fed's Mars and the need for concern was real. But Mars becomes fairly lazy when eclipsed. Employees of the Fed and actually the whole country turned into monetary couch potatoes. No one was thinking and the Fed employees were just recycling old ideas that didn't work the first time. It certainly was too much like work to find other measures to move the USA economy.

The North Node is applying to the Fed Sun which along with Jupiter moving over the MC could signal a good decision will emerge around January 1, 2011. In addition the South Node will be conjunct the Fed's Pluto which would mean their power is easily recovered. It appears that Federal Reserve will succeed in spite of themselves. All of the hand wringing by critics will become a humorous anecdote.

The USA Economy?
A tremendous number of folks will find their unemployment benefits expire on January 1, 2011. The Republican House of Representatives will suggest "tough love" . It is amazing how quickly the economy improves when folks decide to work for wages.

When I set up the chart I thought I would also be a critic of the QE2 policy and I was positive that the Federal Reserve would make the mess even worse. However it appears that by mid-February we will decide that the policy was not awful. I'm surprised by the chart, now someone is going to tell me to use the November 16,1914 chart when the Federal Reserve opened its doors for business. Actually that chart has the South Node conjunct its Pluto Saturn conjunction. Same reading but the Fed will not get credit for taking a remarkably correct action.

The New Moon in Scorpio

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 Scorpio New Moon appears on the 4th house cusp (refer to chart)

The Scorpio New Moon, November 6, 2010 at 12:52 EDT Washington, D.C.
Rain and snow are the problem with the snow cover heavy on the fields of winter wheat (good for wheat). Expect measured increases in the price of beef and fowl during the next few months. The New Moon on the 4th house cusp favors the election of the opposition party especially along the 80 degree longitude line. ( By the way Venus conjunct the Sun in Scorpio also favors the election of the opposition party as it did in 1994 )

Mercury appears in the 4th House
Agriculture is making new plans for the use of the land. In addition to new types of crops younger farmers are adding the machinery for home made electricity. Excellent prices for 2010 crops will allow farmers the opportunity to invest in new machinery and diversify their crop production.

Mars appears in the 4th House
Mars here indicates continued stress in the housing markets with new revelations about inept bank employees. Publicity concerning documentation difficulties further inspires a wait and see attitude among buyers. Dry weather is a problem for cotton and sugar crops along the 90 degree longitude line.

Pluto appears in the 5th House
New types of art and film gain public attention. Entertainment is going to the people with small cities tours. The Internet continues to create new venues for clever artists. It is becoming very apparent that the source of income for entertainment has changed dramatically. The commodities market will be amazed by the demand for copper.

Neptune appears in the 7th House
Advertising agencies and public relations departments are confused. Mergers and acquisitions are announced but many are flawed and need to be withdrawn. Currency negotiations between Central banks are chaotic and resolutions seem unsolvable. Accusations of unfair practices are true, but it will take months to untangle the web of deceits.

Jupiter appears in the 8th House
Leaders in government will bring attention to the need to collect corporate cash parked abroad. The public will favor the need to bring back cash since it will increase funds available to shareholders as well as employees. Share prices for cash rich companies will increase as we close the year.

Uranus appears in the 8th House
Strange weather as well as accidents will cause insurance companies to complain about using up their reserves. Investors and traders will find these companies difficult to assess as to future earnings therefore the prices for these stocks and funds will stagnate.

Saturn appears in the 3rd House
Problems concerning transportation are the main concern of citizens. Vehicle maintenance is required. It is a good time to check investments in companies that service vehicles and provide spare parts.

Venus appears in the 3rd House
Folks are shopping seriously for the best deal on all their electronic gadgets. They will buy new electronic toys but not without a deal. If you are considering investments in communications related stocks be sure to check earnings and yield. The migration of revenue from print media to electronics will be obvious in their earnings statements.

New Moon statistics

Buying stocks on the New Moon is a good idea
Selling stocks on the Full Moon is a good idea

About 2000 years ago an astrologer who wrote under the name Dorotheus commented on the influence of the New and Full Moon among traders in his markets suggesting that the Full Moon brought a higher price for their wares. In the early 20th century a trader by the name of W.D. Gann said approximately the same. It was an easy observation for most day traders. In the Textbook for Financial Astrology Book 1 Lesson 4 I quote the research of Zheng, Zuang, and Zhu from the University of Michigan which stated statistically on average stocks move higher after the New Moon and fall after the Full Moon. Bill Meridian's extensive research on the Dow from 1915-1994 shows the same trend.

Therefore it was exciting to read that a new group of researchers confirmed these statistics. Here is the link.
