    Denise,
    When is the period of kindness you talked about going to begin? I am seeing a whole lot of just deeply distrubing behavior on the news – a man massacres his ex wife’s family in CA, another man decides to up and shoot a father in a Philadelphia movie theater, a guy in Scotland holding that poor, poor woman hostiage in the trunk of his car for ten days…

    It seems like people have lost their dang minds. Thanks in advance. Happy New Years!

  • Wei // December 28, 2008 at 3:56 pm 

    I think kindness starts from here… us. There’s too much carelessness and thoughtlessness in the world. If anger and lack of regard for others starts, there’s no need to continue in that kind of vein, otherwise all of us are in trouble. It is true that we are all a community and I hope over time, we will evolve to that kind of thinking.

    To Answer Grace first:

    I think we are going to see the worst of mankind first before we see the best of it. I am an optimist by nature and generally believe that when given a hard lesson people eventually learn it and open their hearts toward growth. Unfortunately, I’ve seen, as I’m sure we all have, that it takes a lot to break open the hard hearted, greedy and selfish. And the truth is there are a lot of people on this planet (last count over 6 billion) and many of them are young souls who are pretty darn selfish. Which means for all of us, it will take experiencing a lot of bad before we see the light as a group. And it may also mean that there will be a lot of sacrifice in order to learn the lesson of humanitarianism. As we go from the Piscean age to the Aquarian age there will be a time of reckoning and I fear a lot of terrible stuff we will have to endure before we see the light.

    Wei is right:

    There is so much thoughtlessness and carelessness in the world. We are going to have to learn just as children do, about boundaries. But in our case these lessons will be large scale, very frightening, and come in the form of war, disasters, and economic melt downs before we can begin to band together and truly value each others humanity. It’s sad that we have to learn the hard way but I think we’ve proven we don’t learn any other way.

    I’ve been having a lot of nightmares over the past week, broad scale, a lot having to do with elemental energies like water and fire. The news seems full of craziness, more each day. But its not a surprise astrologically. We are in for some tough times in many ways, but there is hope. 

    The more the enlighten participate, the more those who are kind hearted and empathic step up to support and stand up for those who are down trodden the greater our chances to avert the worst of our potential fate, and the faster those who are ignorant will learn about compassion. We all have to be the best examples we can be. We are all teachers here — something we have either forgotten or not much acknowledged. 

    Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

    Denise

     

Answering Readers’ Questions and Comments

Happy almost official Solstice or Yule tide.

The first question comes from Sag.

Sag1999

Hi Denise, Thanks a lot for doing the charts for Boston. I had emailed this separately, and here is the gist with a little more info. I stared at the European and Italy maps for a while, and the Vatican caught my eye. It’s a neighbor/friend of Italy, of the great book the Bible, and its Pope Benedict XVI is from Germany. Does it resonate with the cards Grace mentioned above? The Vatican is near the River Tiber. All the pieces from my intuition fit in the puzzle. And the Vatican is a symbol of religious or Christian power. What do you think?

Hi Sag,

It makes almost too much sense for a terrorist to think up!

I’ve been to the Vatican. It is actually in the center of Rome, and is considered its own country, with its own postage stamps, and everything. The guards still wear uniforms designed by Michael Angelo. They are extremely goofy looking, and wouldn’t scare a child with a water pistol away. It’s an interesting notion, but my gut tells me no.

There is so much gold, lapis luzuli, and garnet or ruby dust on the walls of that place selling off part of one of the walls could feed all of Africa for a year. There is so much raided treasure in the Vatican it is both beautiful, and if one knows the history, actually very appalling.

I wouldn’t rule out Italy though. I could imagine something happening in a train station or something like that, something transportation related.

I asked the tarot though just to be sure, and of course they said, Yes. But it was an odd sort of yes in that it didn’t look like a physical sort of attack against the Vatican and/or it didn’t look like it would really work.

Hi Denise You are right on in your assessment of Casey Anthony … she is a true sociopath. No doubt the defense will try to get her off on the grounds of temporary insanity, since the evidence against her is so damning; but she knew exactly what she was doing: Caylee Marie got in the way of her partying lifestyle, so she offed her. I suspect there are many dark and terrible secrets in the Anthony home, not just this horrific crime. I live in central FL and we’ve had this story on the local news pretty much 24/7 since it happened. Now that the poor child’s body has been found, we all want justice for her. So sorry you have to deal with migraines, Denise. But perhaps they intensify your gift. I’ve heard them described as “an electrical storm in the brain” and some sufferers report a feeling of clarity after the pain wears off. I get them, also, but not nearly as badly as you do; I find if I take the herb feverfew daily, it helps cut down on the frequency and severity of the attacks. But I don’t take other meds that might conflict with it. Herbs are powerful medicine in themselves! Thanks for all you do here. May peace and prosperity be yours in the New Year. And thank God the Boooosh Administration is on its way out! I hope you’re right … that a war tribunal is in their future, with prison close behind. Peace! Norah Ocala, FL

Hi Norah,

Thanks for the kind words and good wishes. I’m wishing you the very same.

We haven’t had the same coverage here about that poor girl. I’ve only seen snippets here and there. There was never a doubt in my mind that the girl’s mother did it.

The poltergeist phenomena stopped once I posted that Cassey Anthony murdered her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony. Perhaps the little girl wanted word to get out that her mother did indeed kill her. What a sick, despicable woman that sweet little one’s mother is, it is beyond tragic.

kishwer

i have some ?s about my satrun dasha?I need answers and help from you. thanks kish

Hi Kishwer,

I am not a Vedic/Sidereal astrologer. I’m of the Western/Tropical persuasion contrary to many websites stating that I am an Indian astrologer. I’m flattered by this as I’ve had dreams of India all my life since childhood, and memories of a past life there, and a real love of this country, but in this life I do Western astrology.

The little I have studied of Vedic astrology would be of  no help to you. It would be better off for you to go to someone who specializes in this because it is very different then Western astrology. We do not use dashas and we use outer planets, the old tropical placements rather then the sidereal ones, and so many other differences it’s hard to explain in one post. Both are extremely accurate, but oddly enough, there isn’t much cross over.

Best of luck in finding help with this. If you find a good reference for a Vedic astrologer please post it. I’m fascinated by this branch of astrology, but upon researching and studying it, I found it so different then the western system that it just confused what I already knew. However, I would love to have a chart done by a good Indian astrologer.

Hello Denise, just read your prediction of market crash next week. Would it also affect the financial stocks adversely? If so, I was considering investing in stock FAZ which does well if financial stocks crash. Please advise. Appreciate your help. Thanks, Vish

Hi Vish,

Do you have any sort of information on FAZ such as its incorporation date or when it was founded? If so please post it and I will run a chart.

The market crash will most likely be ongoing through the end of January, and then will rebound a bit when another crash will happen in June, and stay unstable like it has been now until the end of November in 2009 when it will again show real signs of recovery. 

Of course this is assuming that the Dow’s chart is accurate, if it is not the timing will be off. We’ll soon see. If the market continues to spiral down until the end of January and then starts to stabilize a bit after that, then we’ll know the chart I have is correct.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

Denise

Hi Everyone! Keep posting questions. I’ll get to them. Hope all of you are able to have a good holiday season despite the craziness going on.  I know we are all scared but remember that this is a transitional period and like our grandparents and great grandparents we will prevail. It will make us stronger as individuals and as a nation. 

I was thinking about how lost we had become. We were so busy consuming, wanting everything for the cheapest price we could get it. Things were shoddily made by practically slave labor in China. We expect to have to buy a new computer every couple of years, more than that and your computer is a dinosaur. We had become so wasteful, not only was this wasting our time on chasing endless carrots on sticks but it is a huge part of our environmental problems. Perhaps tightening our belts, buying less and expecting better quality, keeping a few things we love for a long time and treasuring them rather then buying new stuff every few months because it falls apart, is not only better for us personally but better for the world at large. Think about all the time we can save and resources by not being the decadent consumer culture we have been for the past 20 or so years. We will be better for this. It’s a painful way to learn this lesson, but learning it will ultimately be to our benefit, spiritually, emotionally and environmentally.

Obama may not make it to the 20 of january.

The problem of is citizenship is still here and stronger. As Denise predict it last time he won the trial against Berg. However now the filed a Law suit at the Supreme court.
He may not win it this time. Maybe that is what Denis Dream about Chicago was all about ? I hope he will win the trial again and be president on january 20.

Hi Sandrine,

I see Obama being sworn in on January 20 and when I looked at the supposed case against him via the cards it looked like there was absolutely nothing to it. So I wouldn’t worry about it.

Dear Denise,
Thank you for all your help to so many who are worried about their jobs, savings, etc. in this financial downturn. I am a small business owner who is also worried whether or not “Main Street” businesses will begin to fall across the nation. Could you say something about the Teahouse which was incorporated in NYC on March 15, 2005 at 5:05pm. People seem really scared and, of course, restaurants seem to be extremely vulnerable to this economic climate. Many small business owners in our neighborhood are seeing a 30% downturn already.
Best wishes for the holidays, Gwen

Hi Gwen,

Here is the chart of The Tea House:
picture-161No doubt there will be a loss of costumers, primarily tourists, people on trips, foreigners, and people in the publishing business as Pluto inconjuncts the moon of the Tea House later in the year, into next year. I’d say if this business tightens its belt and really tries to be conservative it should weather the storm right now.  also as Uranus transits the 7th house and hits the businesses Venus and then Sun there, the Tea House could get a new husiness partner which would really help it to stay afloat during this down turn. Neptune is transiting the 6th which will also mean that some servers will probably have to be let go in order to keep the place open. But it does look like it will be OK, as long as the business is proactive and adaptable.

 

Best wishes to all and many blessings.

Answering Readers’ Questions…

 

More questions, more answers, the first from KRG:

KRG

Hi : Very interesting

On the prediction that India will hit Pak sites, I wonder whether this could happen thru US, becos it seems more likely that Obama will use his power to persuade Pak to let US take on the training camps etc in Pak. Don’t see India doing this unless we continue to get hit like 26/11. May be you could run a chart for US vis-a-vis Pak and see how it looks…

Hi KRG,

I think you are right in the sense that the US will try to hit the camps at some point in the future, especially with the recent news about an increase in the chances of a bio-terrorist attack. However, it looked like India was still very vulnerable and that this Pakistani terrorist group wanted to push India to respond to Pakistan. The last post I did detailed all of this.

Truthseeker

I woke up with the feeling that the credit crisis wasnt the cause of the market crash at the end of Dec/ Jan

Hi Truthseeker,

I’m sure you’re right. It’s turning out to be the information about the economy, joblessness, and eventually as Pluto crosses the 1st house of the Dow, and squares many other important planets at the critical cardinal 01 degree, (many western nations have a planet at this critical degree as well) we’re going to see some very ugly, criminal and shady stuff uncovered about how companies have been operating which will further freak out investors. Of course the news coming out about the seriousness of this crisis, joblessness and personal spending freezes we are all in will contribute to this coming Tsunami.

We’ve been at the point where we noticed the water receding back from the shore, and it looks really weird, but we couldn’t figure out what was happening or why. We are now at the point where the water is starting to hit the shoreline.

northernlights2008

Any thoughts on the two unresolved Senate races in Minnesota and Georgia? I think you predicted the Senate would get close to 60 seats a few weeks back. I wonder what the cards say closer to the evantual realities. Thanks!

Hi Northernlights,

It seems that I’m too late to predict Georgia. It looks like Republican Chamblis won. I really feel Franken should win Minnesota, if he doesn’t I think there was funny business going on. So I guess it will be 58 or 59, but its close enough. The Republicans are so fractured right now the next couple of  years will make it worse for them. I don’t think that number will stand long.

I do feel Obama will have the 60 needed, if not this go round, then next. The cards indicated it would happen. As I’ve said before about the cards, they are always right, but their timing isn’t always accurate.

Iris

Another question. Some of Obama’s supporters are up in arms about the people he is choosing to work in his Administration. They feel that they have been betrayed. Will the Disgruntled Dems. get over it in time or will they hold a grudge for the next 4 years?

Thanks! -)

Hi  Iris,

I have noticed this very thing, and it’s annoying. The poor guy hasn’t even taken office yet. He can always fire people if they don’t work out! I wish they would let him get out of the gate before they tried breaking his legs. This is the very thing that is lame about Democrats, and the reason they are perceived as weak. And why it has been so easy to split the party, divide and conquer, a technique used efficiently by the Republicans who had the binding force of greed to keep them together as one giant jelly fish stuck to the butt of our country.

Democrats are often too idealistic, and not practical enough. They expect miracles immediately, and are too easily disappointed by reality because the binding force that makes people Democrats is a variety of things. There is no one glue keeping the party together except for idealism, so its a double edged sort of thing. It’s why Obama won. But also why people from his own side are going to pick on him like he’s the fat kid on a baseball diamond. It’s annoying.

Obama is putting together an entire administration. Just because he’s carrying some people over from the Bush admit-nothing-stration doesn’t mean they will ultimately stay, and there is some need for consistency and experience. If company A bought company B, they’d replace almost everyone, but just for efficiancy sake, and the sake of time, some employees from company A would transition to company B.

I think everyone getting their panties all up in a bunch before Obama even has possession of the white house is ridiculous. And frankly, the dude has 60 odd days to pick everyone on his team, move his family, and get a meeting of the minds together to basically run the free world.

So I say to those spastic hypercritical Democrats and lefties, cut him some slack! Jeez! There’s a lot to worry about right now, and I’m sure Obama will cull through people over time. Give the guy a chance. God, knows we gave George W. Idiot a new chance every day which he spent screwing something else up, and there was very little fuss made about any of his messes. But he had the web of greed there to catch him at all times where Obama has a sack full of ideologies to try and placate.

All I ask is 6 months to let the Obama administration get going before the traditional Democratic backstabbing and infighting. We are in a global state of emergency. Which will require us to learn to be more practical, and pragmatic instead of dreaming up ways in which we wish our politicians were more delightful. 

So in answer to your question. Unfortunately, I’m sure we will see the traditional Democratic hazing, but lets all commit to do our part not to participate in it.  There’s enough to fix that Obama shouldn’t have to worry about pandering to everyone, too.

Will Arnold Schwartzenegger be joining Obama’s cabniet? I thought when Obama said a top Republican would be on his cabniet, it would be Arnie. Now he’s picked Gates to stay on as Sec. of Defense. Since some very conservative Christians are in top level positions in the military, this seems to be a wise move aimed at keeping them calm. What’s up for the Governator after his term runs out?

Here’s his birth information: 30 July 1947, Thal, Styria, Austria (Taken from his bio on Internet Movie Database)
Birth Time: 04:10 (04:10 AM) MEDT(-1:00) (taken from Lois Rodden’s AstroDatabank
http://www.astrodatabank.com/nm/SchwarzeneggerArnold.htm )

Thanks in advance!

PS

I sure hope he will be. After four years of having to look at Bush and Cheney, this lady would appreciate someone up there easier on the eyes. LOL

Hi Grace,

I just don’t see Schwartzenegger in Obama’s cabinet. He’s really done a bad job here in California. We’ve had budget problems, and the unions are talking about throwing him out of office. He’s a big oaf. Sorry to say. I’m sure his wife would make a better governor then him. He should have stuck to his acting career. Here’s his chart from the source you gave:

picture-151In 2010 he’s going to have transiting Pluto going over his Moon in the 6th house. His moon rules his chart, it’s in Capricorn/career and in the 6th that’s your job.  And it will be making an applying inconjunction to his Sun. So I’d say he’ll have some trouble in the career department. His wife should take extra precautions for her health at that time, too. As the moon in the 6th could be his wife Maria having some sort of health problem that could be fatal if not caught early.  Or if his mother if she is still alive could have a health crisis. So the women in his life will have to be diligent with their health over approximately the next 5 years.

He may very well get recalled here in California in a special election at that time (November 2010). He himself was put into office on a trumped up recall election, ousting our Democratic Governor Gray Davis. It was pretty lame. Karma’s a b*tch. So looks like he’ll be getting it back right about then. Or at least the fire will be roaring in that direction by then. I hope for him, and his family’s sake it’s just his career that has trouble, and not the women in his life.

Bedtime! More questions and answers tomorrow…

Best wishes to all of you!

Geo-Politics & Bio-Terrorism

Hi everyone, 

I decided to take a break from answering stock market questions for now for a couple of reasons: 1) My brain is hurting from it. 2) If you haven’t gotten out of the market by now, it’s probably best to wait it out if you own stock in a major blue chip type of company. I will get back to these questions though over the weekend, and look into it, but in general most people are on the losing side now, and most readings I’ve done about the situation indicate waiting it out for several years is often the best thing to do if you want to get your money back to about where it was. So that being said, I will of course answer everyone over the next couple of weeks, but I just need to take a little break from it.

I really want to get to the issue of bio-terrorism and the trouble bubbling over between India and Pakistan because I feel a very dark thing there and have for awhile, but kept getting side tracked. The other day Ylem posted an article about the inevitability of such a thing happening somewhere in the world. Ylem was very worried if many people would die as a result and my response was unfortunately there were some signs (astrologically speaking) that  this could very much occur as early as 2011. This will be a major ongoing problem for about 7 years, nearly a decade before the world will get this genie back in the box, on the brighter side hopefully stopping this genie over the next decade before it ever gets out. So it is imperative that our government, and all world governments be extremely aggressive about fighting this, because it would and could be potentially extremely devastating. 

The problem that these terrorists don’t understand is they will not only potentially murder millions of innocent citizens of a country whose governments they have a problem with, but this kind of attack will backfire and very likely cause massive losses of life not just of the “enemy” but to their own people as well. Diseases once released into the public can’t be controlled. And even nerve gas attacks will have repercussions as leaks (because of badly constructed holding tanks) will poison the environment where it is stored. And this could be said of any potential dirty bomb material as well.

The reality is with Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces, and Pluto (in Capricorn) squaring Uranus we will be in danger of wars of all kinds, big or small, terrorist and conventional.

In June of 2012 Uranus will make an exact square to Pluto in Capricorn, and the best possible read on this would be the tearing down of the way we’ve done business, and replacing it with a radical new type of visionary leadership, that is if we live up to our highest potential, which is my hope.

My fear is enough of us will settle into darker places, and the worst potential outcome of these aspects is: unexpected war/invasion/terrorist acts with massive repercussions to the economic and eco systems with tremendous loss of life. And of course there are varying shades of gray between these two extremes. And more then likely it will be somewhere in the middle as we collectively struggle between the chaotic side of our nature and the peaceful side.

Our country (the US) will be most vulnerable to an attack in June – August of 2010 and then again starting in March 2011 off and on during the spring into the summer of  that year, and of course the whole world will be vulnerable in 2012 during that awful configuration of planets and aspects. My current feeling is that these attacks have a very good chance of being caught and averted if we are vigilant and I feel we will be, but we all must do our part to pressure the government to stay on this issue.

Other countries I don’t have the same feeling about. I have to say one of my first gut feelings was a worry for Israel. Here’s there chart:

isrealIsrael will have some very challenging aspects regarding the three outer/fate based planets as we progress into the next decade.  There is some hopeful news for them, they have great intelligence, and because the planets are never perfectly aligned for a horrible attack, there is a very good chance they will discover whatever plot there is against them. But they really have to watch their backs in the coming decade. And smaller consistent attacks will most likely escalate.

Now my other bad feeling was for India which I’m hoping was just about this recent Mumbai attack. Here’s the chart for India:

india1Right now Pluto is still at that critical 0 degrees of Capricorn going through India’s 8th house of death and opposing its natal Mars in Cancer exactly. They are still very vulnerable right now to another terrorist attack. Since the last attack happened when the Moon was in Scorpio squaring the country’s stellium in Leo, I would say they will be very vulnerable around the 22 of December this year, even more so then they were in November as the Sun will join Pluto, and light up this possibility. I wonder if perhaps this Pakistani group is trying to push India into a war with Pakistan, and this is a big part of why communications will break down at the end of January. Even the uncovering of a plot at this point would be enough to push these two countries into war or at least to push India into striking back at the Pakistani based terrorist groups.

I’m going to post a bunch of charts of countries in the middle-east here, because it seems there is a theme among them.

saudia-arabia-moderniran-modern

There are other charts I want to run and will add in a later post about this ongoing subject ,but don’t have space here. Let me just say that there is a good chance there will be a possible coo or revolution in Iran when Uranus hits this country’s Mars in the 8th, and it will be bloody. It looks like it will come from this country’s youth. And will be very unexpected and potentially deadly, this aspect happens in 2010.

It seems that the most vulnerable places over the next 10 years will be Israel and India, we are also high on the list, but harder to access for many of these small potato type terrorist groups.

Let’s also look at some European countries:

picture-142picture-13Looking at all these charts the first thing that pops out is the early degree planets in cardinal signs in nearly all these western nations, except France. Pluto will be wreaking havoc here, and this could also relate to the economies of all these nations.

The United Kingdom has an interesting feature, and probably one that makes it very vulnerable to surprise attacks; Uranus at 1 degree Libra in the 12th. Next year on and off, Pluto will be squaring this degree, and combined with other aspect this could leave the UK open to attacks, more than usual. Especially in Jan, June, July, August, October and November of 2009. This same period will be very bad for the Dow Jones as Pluto will be going over the ascendant back and forth bringing to light deeper problems and darker secrets, each one more surprising then the next and leading to erratic trading. Obama’s administration is going to have to get in there fast and start restructuring in order to turn this around. 

Also the UK’s vulnerability shows up in the charts of its allies, Italy, Spain and Germany, very likely these countries will be key to intelligence that if listened to by the UK could avert potential disaster. During this time all these countries will be having their own crisis related to the financial mess we’re in, with the exception of France which will be doing better then the lot of these posted western nations.  Perhaps they already had tighter regulations and were more protected and isolated economically then most of the other countries were.

OK, it’s time for sleep. I will continue looking at the world and this issue country by country over the next few weeks. And as we get closer I hope to go city by major city to try and isolate where any potential threat may occur.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Friday.

Keep posting questions, I’m going to get to them! I promise.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

Hi Denise,
Thanks for the reply. In regard to further info,
OZ Minerals is a merger between 2 companies – Oxiana and Zinifex.
The name OZ Minerals was approved by share holders on 18 July 2008 and started trading under that name on 23 July 2008. Hope this is sufficient info.

God Bless

Gurdeep

Hi Gurdeep,

Thanks for the info. Here is Oz Mineral’s founding chart:

oz-minerals1Here is their trading chart:

oz-mineral-trading-chartThe first chart I can’t be sure of the time, I used the start trading time of Australian Stock Exchange so I’m going to go on the second chart which will be more accurate and also be more appropriate as it will apply to those people who own stock in this company.

I would say there will be losses as Neptune returns to 23 degrees Aquarius in the 5th house in February of 09 but then as Uranus hits Mercury in the company’s 10th in March of 09 and trines natal Uranus and the Moon in the company’s 6th house there unexpected productivity which will lead to unexpected profits especially seen about a year later in April of 2010 when this aspects completes itself with a trine to the part of fortune in the 8th (investors). That will also be when (more toward the end of April but still, very close) when Mars will hit the company’s Venus (ruler of the 8th) and Neptune will be out of the 5th house of speculation and making an applying sextile to Pluto in the 3rd house from the 6th, which means there could be loss of some jobs as the company relocates or opens up another division somewhere else and lets some people go in the process, but it’s not a huge loss of jobs or anything. If you’re going to sell I’d wait until that period of time, it looks much better at that time. This stock will rebound and you will very likely regain any losses or make money if you wait it out until then.

Next from Barry:

For the people that have taken your advise and sold stocks and went to cash this year, when do you adivse investing again? I have a lot of cash in a money market fund in my 401k waiting to do this. I have a choice of 2 US domestic bond funds, 1 foreign fund and several US domestic stock funds. What would you invest in and when would you start? Thanks for doing this.

Hi Barry,

I can’t give you a logical answer like an investment person would only an intuitive one. Personally, I would wait until at least March of 2011 when Uranus moves out of Pisces and into Aries. Things will be more hopeful, and there will be much more market confidence in certain areas by then. But I have a caveat, Pluto will be going through Capricorn (which rules business, major corporations and markets) until 2024 and Neptune through Pisces until about 2025, which means we are going to see the end of business, capitalism and the markets as we have known them.

There is going to be major restructuring throughout the next (nearly) 20 years. And this will be on a global scale. You will have to really educate yourself not just the history of the markets, and any funds you are interested in, but you will also have to be able to follow all the nuisances, and changes that will be perpetually coming.

I know some financial people are saying there won’t be a depression, others are saying it will be the worst depression we’ve ever known. But truly, I don’t think either are correct. This is going to be a period unlike anything we’ve seen. I don’t feel it will resemble the 30s except on the very surface. I have a feeling the world will work together to solve this crisis as I’ve posted long before there was any talks of this or foreign leaders coming together, etc.

There will be a period of adjustment and I don’t think financial people really have a clue just how radically things are going to end up changing. As I’ve said before I feel there will be international laws put into place not just regarding lending, but on trading as well, the markets will somehow be tied together in a new way, and instead of this hodge podge of pieces there will be a uniting off all markets into a truly global economy. But this will take many years, and happen piece by piece.

So to better answer your question, please post or e-mail me (so you can remain anonymous if you wish) specific funds and a time frame so I can do a yes/no spread about them. The trend here I’m seeing is too big, and wide, that I can’t see the trees inside this forest unless you point them out.

Also a shout out to anyone who has some advice on foreign and domestic funds, perhaps a break down of what’s positive and negative to help out Barry and all other readers. I’m a psychic/artsy fartsy type I’m not a hedge fund manager so I can’t logically answer this question it’s too broad for me. Give me something I can do a chart on or a tarot reading about!

Dear Denise,

you are awesome. Thanks for taking the time and write to us all.

I am holding stock from the company AUY. Do you see the price going back up to between 10 to 30?

Thanks a lot,

keep up the great work,

Ninja

Hi Ninja,

I’m mental with the stock symbols. Can you please post the name of the company and if you have the date it started trading and where that would be ideal, in case I don’t have it in my database.

Sorry about that for now, but I will answer you when I can run a chart. Or if you have a specific yes/no question I can do that, too.

Hi Denise,
I thought you and everyone would find this article/interview interesting. The financial strategists mention that around Valentines Day as the potential bottom of the market. This coincides with everything you’ve been saying about the first wave of the worst ending late January of next year. Thanks to everyone who shares their thoughts and of course, Denise who shares her insight, gift and wit. I look forward to you all every day.

“Pros Say: No Market Bottom ’til Valentines Day
The Big 3 U.S. automakers may have reached a bailout compromise Thursday – or not. Citigroup shares hover near $5, even after mega-investor Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said he’d boost his Citi stake to 5 percent. Strategists told CNBC to expect more volatility – and no bottom for months yet.

Thanks for the information Hope and a Plan!

Denise: Will there be a bailout for the American public or are lawmakers going to continue down the wrong path of bailing out their business buddies?

These stimulus packages Obama wants aren’t designed well enough. Because my business pays almost nothing in taxes due to our HUGE equipment write-offs, I’m not provided any of the stimulus.

Just curious if this bailout madness is going to either stop or come to who really needs it?

Thanks!!!

 

P.S. LOVE your blog. Don’t stop! Wish I could afford your private readings… )

Hi Chris,

This is an excellent question! It seems like the country has cancer of the eyeball and they are doing radiation on our femur. It’s kind of insane. I’m hopeful that it will get better with the new administration, but lets see what the cards say.

I asked if the new administration would focus on bailing out the people instead of big corporations. 

The answer: No.

But it’s not as bad as it seems. There will be change and much more help to those who need it. But it won’t be as much as many would like or think is necessary. The problem is they will keep trying to bail out companies to “save jobs” but they will also most likely extend unemployment benefits, pass health-care reform and also try to help people keep their homes, stuff like that, but by comparison it really won’t be commensurate with what they are doing for these big businesses that have been mismanaged, and deserve to go the way of the dodo for their idiocy and overpaid moronic CEOs. The money they spend bailing these companies out (which in my opinion those CEOs should have to sell all their assets off first and live like normal human beings if they ran their company into the ground, then they should loose their jobs and have to worry about money like anyone else does) would be better spent on education and on restructuring these companies. 

I don’t know if anyone saw Michael Moore on Larry King tonight, but he had a great idea; basically bail out the car companies, but take them over, kick out their management, and have them producing hybrids, mass transit vehicles, and cars that run on everything other than gas. I guess FDR took over the automotive industry when he came into office, and had them manufacturing airplanes, tanks, etc. for the war effort. Moore felt the government should take over the companies if they’re going to give them 25 billion, and make them help solve our reliance on oil in the process.

Moore was of the same split mind as most of us. These auto makers have been refusing to make good quality desirable products for the past 30 years, and now they want a hand out! It’s despicable and causes an immediate gag reflex before the repercussions of their failure hit the conscious mind. Moore had a good point. If these jobs go under there will be a huge ripple effect. And we can’t afford millions more jobs lost. So maybe socializing the auto industry not just by giving them money, but by actually making them do something productive would be a way out of the mess.

I doubt, however, this sort of strategy will be enforced. I’m sure this bail out will happen before the Obama administration gets in, and it maybe too late for the Obama administration to implement that idea depending on how the deal goes down. Let’s hope for all our sake congress uses their collective brain cell to figure this one out before signing off on our money like they did last time.

The second bail out package shouldn’t have happened, it did no good! The first one I believe would have made a difference, but so much was compromised, and ruined trying to get the Republicans on board that the bill was castrated. The only good that bill did was restoring a little faith that our government had a desire to solve the mess our country created. I think it bought us a little bit of diplomacy and that’s about it.

These questions will be answered over the next couple of days!

Best wishes and many blessings to all,

Denise

if Hillary becomes the Sec. State, hopefully she will not be excessively distracted by outside drama or personal career plans, etc.

Hi Denise,

thanks so much for your blogs. I really enjoy coming back here. You have predicted a stock market “Tsunami” for December. Things are so extremely bad already… how much worse can it get…? Do you see the Dow Jones Index going below 6000 in December…? Also, do you expect Deflation or Inflation in 2009? Are they going to print so much money that the dollar becomes completely worthless and we will finally need a new currency, or o you see the dollar getting stronger, like right now?

Thanks a lot in advance,
your advice is truly appreciated!

 

Marie

Thank you in advance for answering my question.

If Obama chooses Hillary for the Sec of State job, will she be a team player and represent him to well or will she be a disappointment to Obama?

Will Gov. Richardson be offered a position in the Obama Administration?

Do you think that your dream with Chicago as a target, has any connection to the 2016 bid for Chicago Olympics? Considering that Atlanta was a target, it doesnt seem to unlikely that another Olympics in the US could be a target.

Answering Readers’, Stock Market Edition…

Hi Everyone,

Since we are in a market free fall and as predicted in Mid-September the real tsunami will happen at the end of Dec until the end of January. It won’t really be over then, but that’s when we’ll really see some scary stuff, much scarier then we have already. So in an effort to help as many of you as quickly as possible with all the instability on that front I’ve consolidated the stock market questions here. There are a lot, and I hope to get to them all tonight, but I maybe being too ambitious, we’ll see. I’ll try. If not today then they will be resolved over the weekend.

Let me remind all of you I’m a freaky psychic, artist type, and don’t know anything about the stock market. I’m only going on what my freaky psychic ability gives me and my knowledge of tarot, and astrology so when you write questions to me, make sure to dumb them down. Or I have to just go with the tarot and ask straight yes/no questions because I often don’t understand what the ins and outs are of particular financial issues, except for very basic stuff about how the market works.

I mentioned in a post a while back that there was a lot of money to be made on the down side of this market, but I wouldn’t advise people who aren’t super savvy with short selling, and all that jazz, to try this during this insane period. Would someone out there who does understand how to do this, please write a comment about the ins and outs of this to educate us? I will take the comment, and turn it into a post, and put it up with credit to whoever takes this on. Perhaps this could be a way for many people who lost a lot of money to make it back over the next couple of months. Think of spreading your knowledge as a public service.

OK, here goes!

Hi Denise,

Hope you are well. I know you must be getting overloaded with insights and chaos as things start to unravel. You know me with my Moon in Capricorn I am trying to shore up my nest egg… So i have two questions. The first is what do you think of shorting the Dow, betting that it will go down using a Dow etf short over the next 3 months?

Secondly, Etrade stock accounts are not FDIC insured so if we do have anything in the market when chaos strikes can Etrade confiscate it to cover their Banking and Lending arm. Their savings accounts are FDIC insured…. Thanks for looking out for us. All the best to you and your family!

Hi Hope and a Plan,

I think betting the stock market will go down is like betting ice will melt on a stove. I don’t know much about short selling but, yeah, it’s going to go down. And I do think you can make money betting it will go that way.

So I asked the cards if you could make money that way, just to make sure:

The answer: Maybe.

You really have to know what you are doing. If you get someone to help you, it looks like you know a man who is very generous who would be willing to give you advice in this area, then yes. But you really need to understand how all of it works, and your timing has to be impeccable so, talk to people, do research before you go for it.

I asked the second question to the cards.

Again a Maybe.

It seems that they will not have money, be economically depressed, and use their clients money to keep afloat, but I don’t have a feeling this will be legal. So they will eventually have to pay people back. But of course if they go out of business you’ll be out of luck. So you might want to be safe and put your money into one of the FDIC insured accounts where they can’t touch it.

I hate to say this, as it is not a profession that I believe is for the sane, however with these incredibly volatile swings in the market, I have gone back to my origins as a day trader and have been cleaning up. When i taught day trading for some the shops on Wall street, I told everyon 2-3 out of 10 may survive this style of trading. It might be time for short jump back to the days of the soes bandits!

Hi Oceanhawk,

Maybe you could educate us on how to short sell! I agree that if you are well trained and understand short selling and all that complex stuff, and are not a normal everyday person with some long term investments in the market, you can make a bundle. I actually talked about that in another post. However for normal people who stick their money in an IRA or 401k, or a couple of stocks and plan to keep them until retirement, those people need to get out and wait for awhile before re-investing when the market is stable again. Most people fall under that category. I wish I understood the market better to even begin to understand how to make money short selling.

I recently saw an episode of Nightline that addressed the issue of short selling, and talk of making it illegal in the future. It seems there were investors who were actually destroying companies to short sell and make money off them this way, which I guess was what set off this issue of making the practice illegal.

Hi Denise

Appreciate your reply to my question re Centro and you asked for the start date. here it is-

Centro was incorporated as Jennings Properties Limited on 18 February 1985, and following a prospectus issued in August of the same year, shares were issued on the Australian Stock Exchange. In 1991 the Company was renamed Centro Properties Limited, and in September 1997, the Company was restructured to a stapled security structure named Centro Properties Group.

Hope this helps and also do not mind your reading using the tarot cards too. Just to refresh the question – Is this stock worth holding or to sell before the coming Tsunami around 21/22 Dec 2008? Or is there any hope of this company surviving?

One more question re your predicted Tsunami around 21/22 Dec- does that mean the US Dow will fall big time and the flow on effect on the rest of the world stock markets like here in Australia.

Thanking you in anticipation.
Pat

Hi Pat,

I can’t really run a chart without an exact date, and place at the least and since there are so many I wouldn’t know which was most useful. I’ll ask the tarot if it would be best to sell this stock before the end of December:

This is a Maybe. And I sense from the card layout, if you can wait a long time, it will be OK. If not sell within the next week or so. The sooner the better in this case.

In answer to the second question. That’s a big YES according to the tarot with the tower card coming up in the upright position — the super bad position. So it looks like the fall of our economy will trigger a domino effect that will sweep across all the markets like it did in October only in a much bigger way.

javahaaa

Denise, do you see any positive movement in the US stock markets – Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite in the next 2 weeks (Thanksgiving week, and 1st week of December), before your December tsunami begins in earnest? I trying to intuit if there’ll be some “bounce” up before that big downturn starts, and getting stuck. Thanks for your blog and answer – hopefully within a day or two!

I’ll ask the tarot. Will their be a “bounce” up in the S&P 500 in the coming three weeks?

The cards say yes and no. The next couple of weeks won’t be good but in about 3 weeks there will be big turn for the better before the plunge. Perhaps this will be when the announcement to bail out the auto industry takes place.

Will there be a “bounce” up in Nasdaq Composite in the next three weeks?

That’s a basic no. But it actually looks like next week there will be some sunshine and better spirits and then back down. It doesn’t quite look as dire as the S&P or the stock market though.

Will there be a bounce up in the Dow Jones Industrial Average over the next three weeks?

That’s a no. There maybe one day in a few weeks that looks OK, where it goes up a bit but that’s as good as it will get. That day will be in the middle of the week. And it won’t last, the volatility will continue until the plunge.

Hey Denise,

With so much talk about companies bankrupting...I was curious about the wireless
industry and what will become of Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile?
Thanks,
Amber
Sent from my BlackBerry wireless handheld.
Hi Amber, 
I couldn't find data for any company except AT&T Wireless. If you can find the start dates for the other companies I can run charts on them.
Here's AT&T's chart:
att-wireless-ipoIt looks like they will have problems with companies they have partnered with over the next couple of years but once they get over that aspect they will do really well. 
Actually they have an incredibly healthy and prosperous time starting in 2012. So it could be they take
a hit because of the economy and their investments like everyone else but will recover and do very well.


The next question is from someone wishing to remain anonymous:
Thanks, also, I have two stocks QCOM qualcomm and SNDK sandisk, that I am thinking of holding. But I'm not sure how they'll perform.
So here are the charts for Qualcomm and Sandisk:
qualcomPluto is transiting Qualcomm's 12th house of loss. I have no idea what this company does or is, but it
isn't good to have Pluto transiting this house, that being said in 2014 transiting Pluto will be making
very good aspects to the natal Jupiter and the natal Moon as it conjuncts the natal Uranus. So there will
be some sort of unexpected restructuring that helps this company and makes it very profitable for a period
of time or a new technology or innovation that really gives them a boost. However, Pluto will be going
through this company's 12th for a very long time and will hit Neptune, then sextile native Pluto
so there will be up and downs, and a lot of restructuring behind the scenes, but ultimately when
Pluto goes over the ascendent in 2019, this company will be dramatically transformed or will parish.
Even though Pluto is going through the 12th (death and loss house) it is making good aspects.
So I would say in general this company will have some serious troubles, but manage to reorganize itself
and do OK once the market recovers a bit. Right now though Pluto will be on the cusp of the 11/12 houses
starting in the very beginning of December and that is very likely going to cause serious loss. So
if you can leave your money in this company for a long while it will probably be OK, but not until
2012.
Now for Sandisk:
san-disc-corp
Transiting Pluto is just about to make an exact inconjunction to the company's natal moon again in early December, late November.
Both are at 0 degrees. This aspect is not good for their investors, and I'm not going to bother with the astro speak,
just tell you that this will cause a crash in value for investors which will continue until transiting Pluto
opposes the company's part of fortune in Cancer in 2010. There will probably be some trouble then with
partnerships or legal issues they will have. Once they solve that they should do better in 2011. So if
you can wait for at least a couple of years, preferably longer, then you should recover some of the losses you will
have in the coming months. 
I can't say whether people will make money holding onto stocks however as I
have this weird feeling it's going to take a long time to get the market value up to the place it was
when most people bought their stocks. Even though things will be getting better. And companies maybe
doing OK, its sort of like what happened with the dot.com thing where everything became so overblown
there was now way to get back to where the height of those values were at their highest point.
It's my intuition that it will really take a decade for many people (those who remained in their blue
chip, stocks and made conservative investments) to get to the fiscal place they were a year or so ago.
I feel the value of the markets will rise as things change, but it won't be the wild ride we've seen, it will be more of
a steady goat climbing a mountain.
OK, my baby just woke up so I have to excuse myself and answer the following questions tomorrow:
Here's a sampling of the next batch.
Best wishes, many blessings and good luck to all of you!
Denise

Hi Denise,
Thanks for the reply. In regard to further info,
OZ Minerals is a merger between 2 companies - Oxiana and Zinifex.
The name OZ Minerals was approved by share holders on 18 July 2008 and started trading under that name on 23 July 2008. Hope this is sufficient info.

God Bless

For the people that have taken your advise and sold stocks and went to cash this year, when do you adivse investing again? I have a lot of cash in a money market fund in my 401k waiting to do this. I have a choice of 2 US domestic bond funds, 1 foreign fund and several US domestic stock funds. What would you invest in and when would you start? Thanks for doing this.

Hi Denise firstly i would like to thank you on answering my question about GM and i look forward to the answer on Iran. I agree with this blog on the Auto industry 100%. Even with a bail out of 25 billion this would only last 2 -3 months as it costs 11 billion to keep afloat For GM alone. They will run out of reserves in roughly 1-2 months time.

Grace

I’m afraid you are right there, Denise. :o( It’s too bad these people have to be so mean.

Do you think this bomb is from domestic or foreign terrorists?

Also, you’ll probably answer this tomorrow, but won’t Michelle Obama get bored just doing First Lady stuff? She’s a high powered lawyer herself with a promising career that she has just side lined. Will she be working in a professional capacity behind the scenes?

Another question about a woman and politics…

Chelsea Clinton worked a great deal on her mom’s campaign. She seemed to really be enjoying herself. She’s got the degree for it and she’s been around the halls of power all her life. It just seems natural for her to go into politics herself. Do you see Chelsea in politics in the future?

One last question, do you see a place for Arnold Swartzenegger in the Obama administration? I know he has asked to “join the team” several times publicly.

Thanks in advance! I love your blog.

It’s a strange feeling within me that is so at peace and sees all possitive future experiences peaceful. I am not religious (organized religion) and cried when President elect Obama was elected. Obama seems like he gets it, worldwide. Whether he can make a difference with the problems we have today, will remain to be seen. Maybe he will convince the world to in John Lennons words, “give peace a chance”,
