Re: Mars turns retrograde as Jupiter conjuncts Neptune on the Winter Solstice

Share |
Dear clients, traders, and friends:
Happy holiday wishes!  The Winter Solstice on Monday, Dec. 21st is the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. It marks the beginning of the Winter season as Jupiter forms its third and final conjunction to Neptune.
So what are some keywords for "Jupiter/Neptune?"  How about "false hope" "over optimism" "clouded judgment" " mass deception!"  These are two dangerous planetary pairs together. But there is a positive side too of course. How about "spiritual illumination" "mass transformation" "expanded perception" "improved outlook".  So which ones are in play?  Much depends on the aspects this planetary pair is forming to planets in your own chart and your own state of mind!
On a mundane level..........the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction tends to play out more as false hope and mass deception. that this aspect has completed for the third and final time in 2009......hey that kind of rhymes.......and as the stock market is making new is TIME for a reality check!  What areas of our lives have we been wearing the rose colored glasses?  Are all the problems in the economy suddenly solved this past year due to the printing of money and let the good times roll again? Things ain't what they appear to be. That is for sure!
Regarding financial markets......the stock indices have been going sideways for six weeks and now they may be breaking out even higher getting ready for a traditional Santa Claus rally. If they do continue higher, we may finally get a top in January as Saturn retrogrades and Jupiter enters the new sign of Pisces around the time of the Solar Eclipse on Jan 15th.  In commodity markets, Gold has been declining into this strong astrological turning point on Dec. 21st. Looks like a good buying opportunity to me again!  Unless you believe the U.S. Dollar is worth more than the paper it is printed on......then keep your money in soon to be pesos earning virtually no interest.
So what's up with Mars?  The planet Mars has an apparent retrograde cycle every two years for about two and half months. As the planet Mars turns retrograde once again, this will continue until March 10th when it turns direct. Mars will continue to transit the sign of Leo until June 7th. Let the extrovert in you and your inner confidence shine! The planet Mars is very happy in the sign of Leo. However, as Mars' retrogrades, we may have to also reevaluate the way we do things!
The retrograde of Mars affects the signs of Aries and Scorpio or those with Aries or Scorpio rising the most. In any case, this cycle may require some back stepping and dealing with unfinished matters from the past before we can move ahead again towards goals. Don't feel frustrated if delays are in the picture.....this is only temporary. The Mar's retrograde can also allow us to heal or fix actions we made in the you may get a second chance to get it right, unless your name is Tiger!
We are also moving into another Mercury retrograde lasting from Dec. 26th - Jan. 15th. It is best to postpone making major decisions or purchases during this phase of Mercury. It is usually premature. The Lunar Eclipse will also strike at 10 degrees of Cancer right on New Years day as well!  The year 2009 may seriously go out with a bang........just avoid too much emotional drama and keep a cool head. Situations could get exaggerated towards the end of December. Don't let the lunar eclipse turn you into a lunatic on new years!
With that note, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Kwanza, and anything else you feel like celebrating towards the end of the year 2009.
Astrologically yours,

Horary Astrological Charts

"Horary Astrology" has to do with the answering of specific questions such as, "Should I buy this car?" or "Should I go on this trip?"  "Is XYZ company a good investment?" "Is Julie pregnant?"  "Where are my car keys?"  You get the idea. Just about any question can be answered with a high degree of accuracy from a good horary astrologer.  A chart is run for the exact moment of your question, and has special rules for its interpretation. This chart not only reveals the nature of your question with specific details but also the probable outcome and other valuable information.  This is one of the most useful and practical areas of astrology. Horary astrology can prevent you from making many wrong decisions and can also give you the confirmation you need when you are making the right decisions.

Electional Astrology - Timing Is Everything

"Electional Astrology" has to do with selecting or "electing" the best possible times to initiate important activities or events in your life. Walt Disney used "electional astrology" to pick the best times for launching his multi-million dollar entertainment projects. This area of astrology is similar to horary in that some of the same rules apply. The planetary strengths and weaknesses, aspects, house placements, elements and qualities, among many other things, have to be taken into consideration.  By choosing the best "stellar signature" that reflects the nature of the event, "electional astrology" will increase your probability of making a success of it.  Anytime we start anything, this event will have a birth chart, and the characteristics of this moment in time will reflect the nature of the experience. You can use electional astrology for starting a business, getting married, buying a home, or any other significant event in your life.  As the saying goes, "timing is everything!"

Natal Astrology - Analysis of your Astrological Birth Chart

"Natal Astrology" has to do with the interpretation of your chart based on the exact time and place of your birth. Your individual birth chart reflects the nature of your psyche, purposes in life, natural talents and abilities, and your karmic issues or problem areas.  The more we understand ourselves and increase our awareness of who we are and what sorts of issues we are here to work out, the more freedom we can have in our lives.  We also cannot ever truly understand another individual unless we first can understand ourselves. A good analysis of your astrological birth chart can shed tremendous light into all areas of your life!

Relocation Astrology (Astrocartography)

"Relocation Astrology" or astro*carto*graphy relocates your natal birth chart for the different localities on the globe. The potential in the natal birth chart can be enhanced or limited to a certain extent depending on where we live.  Different areas of your life become emphasized with latitude and longitude changes.  Whatever your main purpose or objectives in life, relocating to your ideal locality can help make it happen!

Relationship Astrology (Synastry)

"Relationship Astrology" or "synastry" compares two individuals’ charts.  By analyzing the planetary aspects and house placements between two people, areas of compatibility and differences are revealed.  The better we understand our strengths and weaknesses, the more two people can grow together in all types of relationships. A relationship chart "composite" is also created and this reveals the nature of the relationship itself and type of energy created when two people are together. 

Astrological Forecasting

"Forecasting" is an annual and bi-annual service that projects your chart forward in time and also looks at future planetary cycles, transits, and their meaning.  This enables the individual to make better choices in the present and navigate their lives more effectively.  Knowing when your periods of growth, opportunity, and fulfillment are, and when your times of change and challenges are, increases your awareness and ability to make the best choices.

Financial Astrology - Market Trading Advisory Services

"Financial Astrology” can help speculators make better trading or investment timing decisions and has actually been around for centuries. Traders in grains and precious metals in ancient India used it to set buy and sell times in the markets. Aristotle recorded the story of Thales of Miletus, (699 -635 BC), who used his knowledge of heavenly cycles to predict a bumper olive crop, and turned a handsome profit on the rental of olive presses. The legendary stocks and commodities trader, W. D. Gann put astrological principles to work when he made astonishingly accurate market forecasts months, sometimes years in advance. Billionaire J. P. Morgan consulted with astrologer Evangeline Adams in timing some of his most important business and investment moves. Adams noted that "J. Pierpont Morgan, the world's biggest financier, drove the world before him because he had astrology behind him." In fact, it was J. P. Morgan who said, "Millionaires don't use astrology; billionaires do!"
Knowing when economic cycles are due to expand or contract, and at what phase an individual stock and commodity is at is crucial to your success.  Individual stocks and commodities have astrological charts, based on their date of inception, not unlike individuals themselves. This is one key to be able to forecast when price trends are likely to change. Planetary positions can also be converted into price harmonics that enable an investor or trader to know when future turning points and a change in trend is likely to occur and at the corresponding price levels.  Wall Street's best kept secret, "financial astrology" will give you the winning trading edge!
