Buy gold, stocks or bond, or stay liquid?

Let’s take a closer look…

Many people call or write to ask me if it is a good time to invest in gold. Or are stocks and bonds better? How about staying liquid; in other words, languishing in the money market, earning 4% on one’s “lay aside” assets?

In order to answer this question I turn to the cosmic map of the United States of America, whose birth date is July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our Sun sign is Cancer, which means that true, we are nurturing, but we are also a fickle lot—we take care of other countries to our own detriment, and we are often accused of being bullies and controlling the politics of those countries because we have a financial interest in their governments—which is also spot on; look at Korea, Viet Nam and Afghanistan and Iraq. But that discussion is for another day. We are looking at the financial opportunities, or not, for us and our countrymen now and in the immediate future.

The influence of Capricorn beginning this past January 27th, and except for a brief six months when Jupiter retrogrades back in Sagittarius, Pluto will be in Capricorn until 2023. Jupiter, usually benefic, will be in Capricorn until early 2009. Capricorn tends to seize one with melancholy, and oftentimes fear and depression. Pay attention to the sweeping paranoia of fear of loss and the mass hysteria that such panic infects us all with at this particular time.

If gold is ruled by the movement of the Sun—and it surely is—and as we all know the sun moves into a different sign every 30 or 31 days, it is best to buy gold when the sun is in Aries (March 20 – April 19), but perhaps Aries is too speculative [remember that the Aries sort is much like a reckless gambler; best you pay more attention to the other fire signs for investment opportunities], Leo (July 22 – August 22), or Sagittarius (November 22 – December 20). The second most favorable cycles are when the sun is in Gemini (May 21 – June 20), Libra (September 23 – October 22), or Aquarius (January 20 – February 17). But having said what I have outlined for gold, there is a major caveat attached to my consensus.

The Moon of the United States’ astrological chart is in Aquarius at the exact degree where Neptune, the planet of confusion and ill-will is at this precise time. Neptune is never a good time for investments and I fear that those of you who are now jumping into the gold frenzy are doing so out of lack of confidence in the Central Bank and the devaluation of the dollar. The price of gold, over $1,000 an ounce, is one of the truest measures of fear in the markets and there are lots of issues that have investors worried. However, I am more concerned that although the price of gold may rise above $2,000 an ounce, when the markets recover and the dollar strengthens, gold will most certainly plummet.

Since I have been an astro-intuitive for more than 46 years I have seen all financial sectors go up, then go unnaturally down—then they go up, up, up and then they plummet. My learned instruction would be to protect investments with diversion and not to bail from one area of investment to go overboard in another department of opportunity. Although it looks like the end of the world at the moment, there will be recovery. Be cautious and investigate with an authority with your investments. Do not think that gold is the answer to all ills and woes.I am reminded what President Delano Roosevelt said in his first inaugural address in 1933 when the United States was bottoming out from the Great Depression: I am certain that my fellow Americans expect that on my induction into the Presidency I will address them with a candor and a decision which the present situation of our people impels. This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
