We have Pluto moving into Capricorn and their will be major changes in the way business is conducted globally. Probably more regulations and oversight which is greatly needed. Historically de-regulation is bad for business in the long run. It may seem good to multi-national corporations in the short run because they are able to create monopolies but by doing so they cut off the innovation of smaller companies and thus the blood line of the economy in general. During the last Great Depression regulations were put in place to assure a fair playground. The free market is not free when the playing field is tilted toward multi-national corporations. Just like we wouldn’t want to walk out on the street and have our loved ones murdered by serial killers only to find that because they’ve got a great lobby, there is no recourse for justice — regulations are rules, laws to govern business which like all other entities (be they human or run by humans) are imperative to the free market, civilization and democracy. Corporations have rights like you and I and it’s time for them to live by the same rules we live by as individuals. Remember the Robber Barons of the turn of the last century? Well, we’ve created a new class of them via de-regulation. Before laws protecting children, kids worked 20 hours a day in factories, meat was rotten on the shelf and killing people. Our ancestors fought hard to make sure corporations were held accountable, and the Republican party has been widdling away at these laws for decades now. We are now about to suffer the consequences. Write your congressmen and women, your senators and make your voices heard. We need accountability. I know the rich don’t want to pay their fair share of taxes but the reality is we are going to pay their share if they don’t. Personally, I don’t want my daughter paying for the sins of wall street and I doubt you do either.
Please feel free to post questions anonymously. If you have any corporation you want to check out give me the name. I have a data base of every publicly traded company at my fingertips. I will gladly do the chart and give you an evaluation. Perhaps even help you to find the opportune time to get out of the market before the collapse, enabling you to keep as much money in your pocket as possible.
It’s not a surprise looking at WaMu’s chart that they are selling themselves. Pluto is making an exact conjunction to their Neptune in the 8th (other people’s money). There is a lot of confusion there about what they need to do. But things will settle down for them once they restructure probably next year. I would expect the unexpected in January of 09, a major shift in the way they do business seemingly out of the blue. This could mean a momentary closure and restructuring. November doesn’t look good for them, so if you need your money before next year you might want to switch banks until they settle down again. In general they don’t have a very good chart for banking with Pisces ruling their mid-heaven. Their best bet is to re-incorporate in January taking their sun out of Pisces which rules losses. If I could advise their CEO and CFO I would suggest this, start over, consult an astrologer and get a chart more akin to the needs of a bank.
Again there will be fluctuations. They are not being upfront with the public, more turmoil is going on under the surface. They have taken more risk with the publics money than they are leading us to believe but ultimately they are a very conservative bank with a stellium in Virgo in the 5th, meaning in their house of speculation they don’t like to take big leaps but in general rather small steps with solid long term companies. However with Pluto going through the company’s 8th house they have been going through some restructuring of how they invest other people’s money (meaning the public, you and me) which isn’t great. But this aspect will be passing in the not too far distant future. For the time being though they are also a bit unstable. The worst of it for them is over however as the opposition to Jupiter in the second is past and waning. It looks like they are on the road to cleaning up their mess which is a good thing, still there will be some repercussions. Saturn in Virgo does help stabilize their fifth house of speculation so all in all they are one of the safer banks.
While logic would dictate Bank of America’s bail out would not be such a great idea, it doesn’t look bad according to their chart. There will be a period of adjustment. Pluto is conjuncting B of A’s natal moon, making fluctuations come and go for a while and creating some turmoil there will also be opportunity for growth on their part. Mostly their chart looks solid right now. Neptune in Aquarius is making squares but it is also making sextiles, meaning their buy out will be both bad and good. I won’t get into all the astrological info here but the summary is, their public image will shift. They will be seemingly unstable for a while, they will have to make some major adjustments in the way they do business but this will ultimately give them many new opportunities for growth. It won’t be an easy time for them, and it will make people nervous but all in all they look solid. I’ll continue to monitor them.
I had to list the other bank charts on the other blog because I’m running out of room. So click on the link to financial astrology link to look at the other financial banking institution charts.
I’m posting the charts of the major banks. And of course interpreting the aspects to come but for those of you who know astrology you can look at the upcoming aspects yourself. First I’ll post the majors and then do the interpretation.
Head for the hills. Seriously. I just looked at the chart of the Dow and there is some horrible stuff coming down the pike. Pluto is going over the Dow’s ascendant connecting with the two lights, sun and moon, opposing Uranus. This is a MAJOR DEATH AND REBIRTH ASPECT. Meaning there will be a DEATH and this in light of the stock market means I’d give it a 99.99 percent chance that there will be a stock market crash unlike anything we’ve ever seen, perhaps worse than the 1929 stock market crash. It is BAD. VERY VERY BAD. Take your money out of the market now before this happens. Protect yourself. Put it in something safe like a CD which is federally insured. Even if you have to wait for your money if the banks start collapsing like dominos at least you will still get your money.
There will be ups and downs throughout the fall but this HORRIBLE TSUNAMI ASPECT will happen right around the winter solstice aka, December 21/22 depending on the exact timing which I haven’t bothered to check since it’s far enough in the future to tell everyone with certainty just get out. Unless you have lots of money to loose then put your money somewhere safe until the market stabilizes again which will be awhile from now but more on that as I look into that later.
First things first. BEWARE mid-late DECEMBER!
There was a full moon right on the 2nd and 8th house cusps black Monday the 15th of 08. Further exacerbating this is the fact that there is an ongoing inconjunction to Neptune in Aquarius (now retrograde) going through the second house of money and stability. Neptune being illusion, delusion and in the sign of Aquarius, instability, rebellion, anarchy, etc. Uranus is strengthened in Pisces (now also retrograde) because it’s in mutual reception with Neptune. Long story short this chart is like baking soda and vinegar, ready to explode. Not surprising that it happened on Monday but we must bare in mind that these are long aspects and when the lights of the sun and moon touch off these sensitive outer planets again we’ll have further chaos and confusion in the market. The market so far from what I can see is very unstable and will remain that way for a while. More word on how long this will go on, later.
