Fiscal Cents - Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign

Kaye Shinker's Financial Astrology for Your Zodiac Sign  -  Your Astrological Horoscope and Financial Outlook.
During this Lunar month, July 1 through July 29, the spotlight is on the Zodiac signs of Cancer and Leo.  The Sun is in Cancer, however it will enter the zodiac sign of Leo on July 23 at 12:12 am, EDT.

Happy Solar Return to Cancer Suns and early Leo Suns! 

Cancer Suns born July 1 through July 22 will look forward to a year of redecorating their residence and evaluating their personal possessions with the idea of replacing quite a few.

 Leo Suns born July 23 through July 29th,  now is a good time to evaluate your transportation. Divest your parking areas of machines that cost more to fix than their resale value. Many of you are moving, be sure to take along only possessions that are useful now.

Both signs will be very busy throughout the year ahead. Cancer’s are evaluating their skills and taking advantage of various educational opportunities. It is a good year to change your personal style. This is the year to take advantage of travel discounts and cross off a few items on your bucket list. Your goal is to have fun. Leo Suns will concentrate on personal transportation and how to make the best use of their current collection of vehicles. The same is true of their communication devises and the various costs for each devise. Leo Suns need to practice 'thrifty 'and watch excess spending. 

This Month For Cancer
Consider your new investments carefully. Check their web sites and click through to all of their product/service offerings. Now is the time for a new hair style, a new hat, glasses and scarf. Spend some time and money shopping for a new outfit including wearable art. Enjoy researching bargains.

This Month For Leo
Your attention is on your personal transportation as well as communications systems. You are considering the value of each item. Those with the greatest value to you personally are probably great companies worthy of your consideration as long term investments. 

Advice for everyone - Throughout July,  I encourage every Sun Sign to take control of your personal environment and reclaim your power. August promises to be an excellent month to plan a vacation. Suggestion: Visit local attractions and historic monuments. July is a good month to shop for a new piggy bank.

Household Hint: Thrifty is the new status symbol. This will be a good year to start a business. Inflation hedges are stocks and vacant land. Use increased income to invest in yourself.

More 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.

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:

The New Moon in Cancer - Solar Eclipse 2011

Read this New Moon report in it's entirety at
New Moon forecasts show the general trends and financial outlook for the month; below is some of what Kaye Shinker predicts for the month ahead.

The New Moon appears in the 1st House (refer to chart) Non USA members can set up a New Moon chart for the capital of  their country.  Textbook 4, page 30 of the Textbook For Financial Astrology, will help with interpretation the New Moon chart.  (Note the house position of the New Moon in the chart in the capital of the country.)

With the New Moon in the 1st house, folks are in a happy mood feeling very patriotic. They are sharing their experiences over the past few years and evaluating the changes required on a personal level. Managers are examining their business plans as they reorganize how they present their products/service to the public. Expect change at every level of the retail sector.

The Cancer New Moon is a Solar Eclipse at 9° Cancer
This eclipse is the beginning of Saros cycle #156.   A Saros cycle is a period of about 18 years between repetitions of solar and lunar eclipses.  The Wikipedia link gives an animated illustration of a Saros Cycle.

It is said that events and attitudes initiated during the first eclipse of a cycle carry through whenever an eclipse for the numbered cycle reappears. In financial astrology we watch for a Nodal Return and expect that technology associated with the particular company will change thus a crisis in the company concerning new personnel or machinery. A new series means this is the moment of the paradigm shift we are expecting. Expect change.

The eclipse falls across the South Pacific hugging the Antarctic.

(Cancer 4° through Cancer 14°) Click through to the article, Economic Implications of a Solar Eclipse in your Personal Horoscope for ideas of how these eclipses will influence events for you personally during the next few months.

Many USA corporations have planets in Cancer.  Be sure to check their charts before investing. The Textbooks for Financial Astrology 1-4  contain the astrological charts for the Dow 30, and a number of the popularly traded commodities. (IPO charts and charts of incorporation for the DOW 30 are also available to purchase separately from our astrology shop at

Mercury appears in the 2nd House
It seems that the value of currency is in a constant state of change.  Expansions of commerce and trade are continually forcing the demand that exchanges for money move quickly and accurately. Communications companies are extremely flexible when investing cash. Expect daily change.

Venus appears in the 1st HouseSummer fashion is quite remarkable.  Folks are adding scarves and hats to add drama and change their summer wardrobe.  Wearable art kiosks will find new customers anxious to add a touch of unique to their summer outfits. Traditional retailers will find their customers purchasing the basic plain clothes with the idea of enhancing the outfit later.

Mars appears in the 12th House
Competition is hiding in the background ready to pounce on any weakness.  Mars in Gemini would rather talk and prefers not to be involved in any conflicts.  Expect warrior type behavior to decrease.

Jupiter appears in the 11th House
(Finally initiating his transit of Taurus, Jupiter will increase the supply of corn, beans, copper, and bling.  He will increase the supply of financial institutions as new styles of banking form start-up companies.  Private investing will continue to be the source of capital for new business.  The Internet is initiating various new financial opportunities for venture capitalists.

Networking rules the summer.  Folks are practical and will find opportunities to earn money with social networking as well as the traditional venues.  Businesses will continue to benefit from social networks, therefore new ones will appear. (link to article, Jupiter in Taurus)

Project 2011

Collin "Sonny" Rosati is on a mission. His project is to interview as many astrologers as possible and place the interviews on his internet radio show.
Throughout the interview with Kaye she discusses some of the astrological aspects that are important when starting a new business. Kaye explains a few of the planetary phenomena that a new business should avoid and also how to determine when a new business starts.
Collin and I had a lot of fun throughout the interview and we hope you enjoy it and check out some of the other folks on the web as they discuss their specialty in astrology.

Void of Course Moon


Students at Astrological Investing have a Textbook but also have a calendar. They use the one we place on the blog around the 20th of each month for the month ahead. You will notice there are three, one for Australia's time zone, one for London and one for New York.

The Calendar Game
Sometimes we play a game with the calendars attempting to predict the week ahead for the market in their time zone. We look at the aspects of the Moon to each planet as well as the aspects of the planets to each other. In a few months the students become very astute at predicting the daily ups and downs of each market. We consider it an up day if the index averages go up more that 4/10ths of a percent and a down day if the index averages go down more than 4/10ths of a percent. All other days are called even.

Nothing Will Happen on a VOC Moon?

Wrong! The Textbook lessons are arranged according to the frequency of planetary phenomena changes. Lesson 1 Book 1 is The Void of Course Moon. Years and years of astrologers experience has determined: Moon void of course is not good for starting a business because nothing will happen. The question then becomes is that also true for the markets? Answer: NO

Long VOC Moons Summer 2011

During the summer of 2011 there will be a number of long void of course Moons during trading hours. The dates you need to highlight on your calendar are June 22, July 6,8,12,15,29, Aug. 2,10,15&16, and Aug 25. The reason there are so many is that Neptune is at zero degrees Pisces and the other outer planets are in early degrees of their sign. Yellow highlight pens are excellent for marking this phenomena after you print your calendar page.

In the article for the summer solstice 2011 I suggested that these long VOC Moon's would predict a volatile market and indeed they do. However, it seems statistically they also predict a higher market index at the end of the trading day. During the past 110 trading days starting with January 2, 2011 the moon was VOC 18 days during trading hours on the NYSE. According to my statistics I found 14 VOC Moon days when the Dow average was up, two days the average was down, and 2 days the average moved only a few points.
