A Second New Moon in Gemini !

Astrological Investing New Moon forecasts show general trends and financial outlook for the month
 Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE.
 New Moon in Gemini, June 19- Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE.

A second new Moon in Gemini? Yes, here we are at the second new Moon in Gemini this year. As I stated in the last New Moon Newsletter, two new Moons doesn't happen often in the sign of the twins, or any of the signs. Only when a new Moon is at the very earliest degree of a sign can it happen. The Moon's cycle is 28 1/2 days.
So... how did the solar eclipse of May 20 and the full Moon eclipse of June 4 work out for you?
Remember, the influence of an eclipse is long lasting! The influence of eclipse energy can dramatically reappear as transiting planets aspect the degree of the eclipse and other planetary positions in the eclipse chart.

Watch for planets transiting 0° and 14 °mutable - Mars will often reactivate the energy of an eclipse. These eclipses took place in Gemini, so watch Mercury transits as well.
Stocks that have first trade or IPO charts with planets within 5 degrees of 0° and 14° in mutable signs. (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces) are under the influence of these eclipses.

I mentioned in the last newsletter that the IPO chart of Verizon (VZ) has Jupiter at 0° Gemini.   VZ is in the "Gemini Sector" (governed by Gemini and the planet Mercury) VZ has a very promising year as Jupiter transits Gemini.

An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Gemini Chart
Note: New Moon periods tend to be a positive time for the markets, often coinciding with temporary highs relative to the direction the market is trending.  There are many of you who have been trading with the phases of the Moon and having much success; and you know by reading Randall's The Idiot and the Moon that there are times when it doesn't always work out that way! (Read Randall Ashbourne's article, The Moods of the Moon - Trading the Mood Swings of the Monthly Lunar Cycle   be sure to purchase his eBook, The Idiot and the Moon )

The New Moon brings out The Courageous and The Optimists!
Mars in the first house, waxing sextile to chart ruler, Mercury, and Jupiter conjunct the Mid Heaven
- This aspect, along with Venus, and the new Moon transiting the 10th house (Jupiter makes a conjunction to the mid heaven at the time of the new Moon)  is going to bring out the courageous and the optimists!
IF you are a risk taker, then you may very well may get your kicks taking a long position in the SP 500 right in the third quarter Moon period and up to the new Moon this lunar month. 
HOWEVER! This is definitely NOT a time to be long in the market if you are faint of heart!!!  And why I said if you are a risk taker, you very well may get your kicks being long in the market on the new Moon. Warning - the Mars aspect is waxing, and the angles of the chart move swiftly. Have an exit strategy!
Saturn in the second house applying in a hard aspect with new Moon chart ruler, Mercury - This is an indicator of dire economic news.  Earnings reports may disappoint, or if not, they may be overshadowed by European economic and political news.

Pluto in the fifth house square Uranus in the eighth house - THE MOST significant and dominating aspect in the chart! This is the first of a series of waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during 2012 - March 2015.  According to Raymond Merriman in his book, Forecast 2012, "..this is the most challenging time for world leaders to resolve their economic and political crises.." (Read the Heads Up section on the web site in the New Moon Newsletter where I discuss Pluto square Uranus further.)

Neptune in the sixth house - Trade unions and workers are the focus both here and abroad. Unacceptable unemployment numbers and the health of the economy take a toll in the markets.

Venus and the new Moon in the tenth house, Jupiter conjunct MC - A promising new Moon, but fleeting. Be careful with Uranus square Pluto and the upcoming Neptune square Jupiter aspect. (discussed on web site in the New Moon Newsletter, Head's Up!)

Mercury in the eleventh house square Saturn - Discussions of new restrictive regulations on business create uncertainty in the market.

Commentary by Marlene Pfeifle

Knowing how astrology actually coincides with market cycles and the market trend will help you become more profitable in the market - much more so than a reading of transits in a mundane horoscope. Knowing what the outlook for the lunar month gives one a broad picture of the potential astrological energy that can affect the market, however, knowing both astrology and technical aspects is your best bet for successful trading.  Remember the old adage, "the trend is your friend".

Solstice, June 20, 2012, Chart Analysis with discussion of Astrological Events

June 20, 2012, Summer Solstice, Washington D.C.
Summer Solstice, June 20, 2012
Chart for Washington, D.C. USA
The first day of summer in the Northern hemisphere
*June 20, 2012 is the Winter Solstice in the Southern hemisphere
by Marlene Pfeifle, CAP
Uranus square Pluto is the astrological theme for this chart and for the summer. The season begins with, and ends with, a repeat of the Uranus square Pluto aspect in September. (see exact dates in list above) This aspect is MOST significant not only because it is the closest planetary aspect by degree, but because of the implication of its meaning.

What it suggests in the Washington D.C. chart is a summer filled with demonstrations and demands from the people. It's an election year, and people want change and reform in government. (The first house represents the people. Pluto is the demand for transformation and reform - the fourth house Uranus, is the restless urge for reform in their government.)

Actually, they want change and reform NOW - and their demands will persist.
A square aspect is tense, dynamic energy pitting the nature of the planets and the signs they are in against each other to force an outcome. Uranus in Aries is bold, impatient, impulsive and rebellious in the quest for individual freedom; Pluto in Capricorn, like a dark version of the comic book superhero, Superman, will only accept "Truth, Justice, and the American Way". Pluto will expose corruption and eliminate whatever is necessary for a positive end result. However, Pluto in Capricorn DOESN'T want to "throw the baby out with the bath water" and likes to move slowly and deliberately with control, destroying what stands in its path, but resisting impulsive, impatient rebel rousing and "change just for change sake".
       Randall Ashbourne describes Uranus - Pluto energy in his Eye of Ra Report, "... "I mentioned last weekend the symbolism of the Uranus-Pluto square as being an Aries/Capricorn confrontation of aggressive rebellions against "the powers that be" ... and I discussed in (my) Forecast 2012 how this had started with the so-called Arab Spring uprisings, which would continue to spread as they have in Syria and Bahrain, but how the same sort of energy would also manifest in other parts of the world.

And it's fairly obvious almost everywhere. There are all sorts of power struggles going on in China. Dissidents are getting bolder. Greece is an obvious Western example, but so is the growing angst in Germany. In terribly polite Britain, Prime Ministers former and current, have been called into the public forum to explain their relationship with the Murdoch empire and whether policy was traded for publicity.

Uranus represents an energy which demands change, reform and radical restructuring of everything it considers "wrong". In Aries, the demands are aggressive and, if thwarted, will turn to direct action ... from taking over the streets to taking up arms.

Pluto represents great power and great wealth concentrated very narrowly. In Capricorn, it is very much all about control by the plutocrats. There are nuances between nations in exactly how it manifests. In some of the Arab nations, it's pretty easy to pick the dictators." - Eye of Ra report, week beginning June 18, 2012"
- Eye of Ra report, week beginning June 18, 2012
It will be an intense summer in which the political climate will match the heat of the summer!

In the USA, political parties will officially nominate their presidential candidates at conventions - the Republican National Convention, during week of August 27; the Democratic National convention, during the week of September 3, 2012. With Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs, we can expect ruthless, negative campaigns and rowdy demonstrations.

June 24 - Uranus square Pluto at 8° Capricorn (exact) - This is the first of a series of waxing squares between Uranus and Pluto during 2012 - March 2015.
    According to Raymond Merriman in his book, Forecast 2012, "..this is the most challenging time for world leaders to resolve their economic and political crises. In such a venerable climate, Gold is apt to remain a safe haven. Investors and speculators will seek protection by diversifying their portfolios with precious metals. A time that stands out in 2012 is the last tens days of June."

Uranus in the fourth house suggests the possibility of unusual, disruptive, destructive weather.  One never really can predict Uranus energy as it represents what is unexpected.  Earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and loss of electricity due to the unusual weather are possible. Have a first aid kit handy, along with plenty of batteries, and extra food and water supplies in case of emergency. Keep your fuel tank filled in case you need to evacuate quickly.

Uranus turns retrograde July 13 When Uranus turns retrograde, Kaye Shinker taught that for the markets "about 4 days before the exact retrograde Uranus reverses the market trend.  Following the Rx motion 80% of the time the markets creep up."(The Textbook for Financial Astrology)

Jupiter to Gemini ... the Big Sector Shift

The God Jupiter
Randall Ashbourne, an associate of Astrological Investing, posts a weekly market report on his web site, The following  is this weekend's Eye of RA report:.

The head honcho of the heavens changes signs in the coming week, shifting the emphasis of money flows into the markets over the coming year.

According to ancient symbolism, Jupiter is weakened in Gemini. The Old God we associate with expansion … he whom I call the FatBoy … goes on a diet and expansion loses some weight.

It’s part of the rationale behind The Jupiter Cycle (see Articles); markets have an historical tendency to peak with Jupiter in Taurus and decline until Jupie enters Leo, a Fire sign which sparks him up again.

It also means the money flow starts to move more rapidly into different sectors. The late Kaye Shinker, from and the author of several textbooks on financial astrology, researched this effect at some length.

With Jupiter in Taurus, for example, the emphasis has been on banking and debt – the Taurus/Scorpio axis; and also on technology and gold, the Aquarius/Leo axis. I think most of you will agree that banks, brokers, Apple and gold have been the topics du jour for all the time the FatBoy has been in Taurus.

Slowly, you’ll see a change; transportation, travel, health, labour and oil will begin to fill the news pages. It does not mean the bank problems are about to disappear. All of that will continue because of the longer-term Uranus square to Pluto … the Aries/Capricorn confrontation of aggressive rebellions against “the powers that be”.

There are a few other, more minor, astrological events also coming this week … the 3Q Moon, Mercury squaring Uranus and opposing Pluto (GeeZeus! Yet more bank blabber.) And the Sun will trine Saturn mid-week.

Still, it’s Jupie’s sign change that’s the big event and I needed to give you the heads-up on that so you can trawl through your sector charts and consider adjusting where you have your boodle invested.

Now let’s have a wander through some charts. Last weekend, I indicated markets had to “bottom now” or they were likely to continue crashing badly … and I showed a couple of FTSE charts to highlight the potential for the optimistic outcome, even though Lunar Eclipse Full Moons didn’t have a particularly reliable record of bringing in a bottom.

I confess I’d completely forgotten the English cousins were going to shut down for a bit of pomp. Not that it made any difference; the signals were there … and, as it happened, played out.
FTSE - Rising Sun Lines
click to view larger chart
We began last week with a chart showing the FTSE’s normal reaction to rising Sun lines and I said: ”The index has had a distinct tendency to attach itself to one of these rising Sun lines during almost all of its uptrends, even the ones which have been relatively short-lived.”

So, the cousins bounced back. Rather strongly. In fact, probably too much so. Pay special attention to the state of the red Canary in the oscillator panel. We’ve had a few of these strong spikes since last November’s Low … and in each case, they’ve caused Price to stop the rally temporarily and go into a sideways shuffle.

Often, the shuffle continued until Price again made contact with the rising Sun lines.
FTSE’s Weekly Planet Lines

We can see the strength of the two-day move more clearly by just how far it travelled on the FTSE’s Weekly Planets chart, above.

The planetary Price resistance around last week’s High is obvious on both of the above charts … as are the targets for either a confirmed breakout or breakdown.

Okay, so the potential for a return to optimism was heralded by the FTSE’s “normal” reaction to rising Sun lines … but the real question is whether the rally can be sustained for any length of time.
Let’s revisit the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon chart …
S&P 500 - Full Moons
click to view larger chart
 Last week was the 8th Lunar Eclipse Full Moon since the Bear bottom in 2009. The 1st and the 6th of them coincided with downtrend Lows … and now, maybe, another one.

But, to be a reliable Low, Miss Pollyanna – the SP500 – needs to make a solid weekly break above primary Node resistance around 1325.

S&P 500 - Weekly Planets

If you consult last weekend’s edition, you’ll see the first harmonic Node line is a real long-term barrier for Miss Polly.
And the long-term uptrend is now under threat.

Jupiter Cycle Chart
click to view larger chart

The chart to the right is The Jupiter Cycle chart … markets peak with Jupiter in Taurus (dark green), drop into Jupiter in Leo (red) and rise again into Jupiter in Sagittarius (blue).

If the cycle plays out its usual tune, we could get a lower, secondary High with Jupiter in early Gemini … but it’s usually all downhill from there.

It’s why I’m more Bearish than Bullish. You’ll note the Canary has given two examples of negative divergence now … a lower peak at the most recent Price High and a deeper trough during the August/October spikes down.

Fibonacci Rx levels on Jupiter Cycle chart
click to view larger chart
The Fibonacci Rx levels marked on The Jupiter Cycle chart show the downside Price targets if we are now in the early stages of a renewed Bear market.

The 50% level is a particularly interesting one. Bill McLaren, an American/Australian market forecaster of long experience, has noted over the years that major consolidations during an uptrend, tend to become the halfway marker for the total rally. McLaren uses that consolidation to predict what he thinks will be “the final top” for a Bull run.

As you can see from that chart, the first long consolidation after completion of the first major wave up, marked out territory likely to become just as important on the way down.

We’ve discussed at various times over the past few months, how the ASX200 has responded to 50% markers.

So, with Pollyanna’s daily chart above, we would expect strong resistance to this bounceback rally to start showing up in the 1344-1360s region … IF she can break through the Node/Fibonacci barrier around 1325.
click to view larger chart
Now, let’s take a look at the ASX200 … and the omens continue to be just awful. Last week was a bounce from “obvious” Support … and very, very low support at that.

In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at just how far down the Aussie market is likely to go if the Bear is back on the prowl. Believe me, it’s far, far too depressing to discuss this week!

I’ll leave you instead with an update of Auntie’s Weekly Planets chart.

Venus Retrograde - Example in the Markets

In my next new Moon newsletter I remind readers that Venus is retrograde until June 27.

Reiterating last month's warning of what to expect with Venus retrograde "The markets enter an ever- changing environment of unpredictability. Since Venus rules money, it is possible that the Federal Reserve Board goes back and forth on decisions made as it revisits and reevaluates past polices."

Yesterday's opening rally and the disappointing close is an example of that. Within minutes of the opening the Dow industrials were over 150 points higher than Wednesday’s impressive 287-point gain. This was the result of the news of China’s central bank's decision to cut interest rates for the first time in four years, and the hopeful anticipation of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke to announce QE3 in the near future. 

However Bernanke failed to outline any new stimulus plans and within an hour of the close, profit-taking took back almost all of the early gains.
