The first question comes from Aymon:

aymon

so what we’ll be seeing in dec will be worst than what we’re seeing recently from sept to october?

Unfortunately, yes. I do get the feeling that over the next couple of years some major changes in how the markets work both here and internationally, along with some sort of restructuring and some new laws, will make the global economy stronger and less vulnerable to future problems. But it will get worse before it gets better.

The aspect that set this chain off will go exact in December, so there will be as I said in the post, a tsunami.

I used that metaphor because in a tsunami, at first you’re not sure what is happening, the ocean recedes, looks strange, but it doesn’t seem so bad, then all of a sudden your drowning. And just as it seems to be over, the water pours out again. So that is how I saw it playing out. It’s almost as if it’s not really happening, very surreal.

I’m going to post, the Dow, NASDAQ, The US Constitution and the US Constitution’s signing chart so you can follow what I’m saying. If anyone is interested I have some basic astrological information, for novices on another blog, it’s url is: http://astrologybasics.wordpress.com if you want to ask astrological questions you can post your questions there and I’ll answer them. 

Anyway here are the charts with some interpretation to follow:

Looking at the Dow’s chart we’ll see the start of a downward spiral happening more behind the scenes (like it has been) then in our faces. But once Pluto crosses the ascendant in late January 09, we will really see the effects of what has been happening. Right now this Pluto aspect is going through the 12th house and although we’re seeing it, we’re not really seeing it yet. It’s not clear what all of this means and there is a lot of illusion and delusion about the stock market. But come late January we are going to be smacked in the face and it will directly start effecting us.

My intuition is that we will see a many more companies go under, a lot more job loss/unemployment, a significant hit for retail stores — many of them will go out of business, and so many other companies are going to fall. We will also start to see a sharp rise in homelessness.

There are a lot of factors at play here. In the US Constitution’s chart Pluto will be crossing the 7th house around March of 09, making our allies more vulnerable to economic turbulence than they have already felt. But around the same time Pluto makes the horrible aspect to the Dow it also inconjuncts Uranus in the second house of work, which makes me feel there will be a tie in to major job losses, and it will be sudden, out of the blue — so some industries that seem invulnerable right now will get hit. Pluto is also squaring the US Constitution’s part of fortune in Libra in the 4th house, again causing turbulence in the housing market. More people will loose their homes, and right now we are seeing a credit freeze in that area, this aspect will get worse in late November and into December. 

This whole thing is a giant mess. The more I look at all the charts the crazier it looks. Also Uranus will make an exact conjunction to the natal US Constitution’s chart’s Mercury which rules the 4th house. I worry a bit about another terrorist attack during this time period (March of 09). We are really in for some strange times.

But I also feel we are going to turn this around and find hope, courage and a great lesson in all of this. This will be a defining moment in American history for a bunch of reasons and I have an intense feeling most of us will rise to the challenge and it will bring out the best in us, and we will turn things around for the better. It may even wake us up about other issues such as global warming which really threaten the habitability of our planet, and makes our current problem small in comparison.

So perhaps we needed this wake up call to get us all involved, engaged and thinking again, rather then checking out — something I feel we have been doing for a long time now. Hopefully, we will all learn that politics are important — the workings of which have a direct effect on our personal lives. Something we forgot when things seemed to be working OK.

We forgot the lessons of our ancestors who lived through horrible things, fought with their lives to not just give us our freedom, but to insure people would get paid a fair wage, and not be exploited. This is why unions were set up. Before their invention, our country was very much like China or Dickinsonian England where children worked 16 hour days for practically nothing, and no matter how hard a person tried they couldn’t make ends meet unless they came from the upper classes.

We forgot that people died putting those unions together to make life better for generations to come, only for Republicans to sell us on the notion that unions just took money and did nothing. Granted, unions got fat and lazy, and not all of them lived up to their original glory. But without them or regulations or without all of us banning together by voting for our own interests instead of lobbyists controlling Washington — we are nothing. We are not a democracy, we are a corporate plutocracy. Nothing could have made that point more clear then what happened during the last two election cycles. Special interests and corporations had gained so much power while we were busy playing with our blackberries, that we hardly noticed they had bought the Republican party, sold it to the working poor via FOX News (Rupert Murdoch) and then had a coo that we paid for. 

But their party is over! That is the good news. We will pay the price for their greed and our laziness. But we will learn and will have the opportunity to truly be the great country we were meant to be.

So vote, get involved and stay involved. We can’t let this happen again. The next few years are going to be hard for all of us, but we can change it. We can learn from this, and if we stick together, and help one another, we will never be stronger.

Best wishes and blessings.

The first question comes from Octavia:

Denise, thank you so much for answering my questions. I’m going to be purchasing a 15-20 minute session in the next 2 or 3 weeks, but I was wondering if you could just answer yes or no on this question: Within 25 years will the technology/medical advancements exist that will enable perfect to near-perfect facial skin regeneration?

Thanks so much,

Octavia

The Tarot’s answer:

Yes.

In the next 25 years this technology will exist and be widely available. It won’t just be in the research phase. It looks like it will give many people self esteem, allow them to get out and be more comfortable dating. However, some may find that so many years of holing up and living a hermetic life will be a hard cycle to break even if they appear different on the outside, they might actually be confused about how to deal with the change. For those, psychological therapy will also be needed. Hope that helps.

Ceramic fuel cells CFU company in Australia, will they be a good investment in the future. They have just invented something that cheaper and carbon emission free electricity.
Thanks for the tip re Minara and Oz minerals can you see them going bust as Ive lost so much money already with them and other shares that I’d only sell now if they have the potential to go bust.

I’ll ask the tarot if Minara will go bust first:

Gee. It looked pretty great when you invested, huh? Actually the company looks like it was doing well and its fortune was about to change for the better. I asked if it would go out of business in the next 5 years, the answer. Yes. But you may find it will go up before it burns out. So I’ll ask if it will go out of business in the next year. 

No. It’s not going to go out of business within the next year. I would wait awhile to sell this and when you get back to where you started, maybe a little over, sell it then. It will go under but will have a period where it does better before it implodes.

And now Oz Minerals: Will it go bust in the next 2 years?

It looks like Oz will be acquired by another company. This will stabilize them and make them more financially stable, but they will no longer be Oz Minerals. I’m not sure what that means for your stock in Oz. Hope that helps.

Your comment on the Toronto Stock Exchange TSX would be great for all us Canadians.http://www.tsx.com. Thanks much!

Hi Steve,

I couldn’t find a start date for the TSX after doing a google search and because my astrological database is made by a US company it is not listed. But I do have the chart of Canada itself and can read the market a bit through that. Although it won’t be quite as precise. If you can find the start date of TSX please post it and I’ll run a chart. 

Saturn is going through Canada’s 12th house of loss squaring Venus in the 9th (foreign matters) which rules the 8th of investing. In layman’s terms, your stock market is going to be tangled up in our mess. We are going to cause you guys some serious trouble. I’m not going to go into all the astrology but your stock market is also going to have major losses. But it seems it will be a little while before your domestic issues get addressed in a real, transformative way, not until January 2011. It may also be when there is serious anger, job loss and civil unrest. This maybe when you guys really feel the economic depression or recession depending on how your government plays this.

Being an American I am woefully ignorant of the workings of your government other than the parliamentary system you employ and I think you have elections every 5 years? Sad. I know. Our educational system is US-focused. I did a quick peek on Wikipedia trying to find that out, but I couldn’t tell when your next election will be. It could be that this aspect will mean a complete shift in the power structure, so the conservatives will be out and a liberal government will take its place. That would be perhaps the best potential outcome of the aspect. It could also be a lot darker. But lets cross that bridge when its closer.

I just tried to get more info and it looks like your Prime Minister was elected in 2006 so if there is another election in 5 years it would make sense with what I’m seeing. There will be a change from conservative to liberal. This is also when your domestic issues will really be tackled.

Hi,
I was wondering if you had any insight into the Student Loan Corporations in the midst of this economic crisis and how they could be potentially effected, specifically Sally Mae. Myself, like so many others in my age group (under 30) find ourselves anchored down by huge college debt with no realistic way to pay it off or much hope to be able to aquire property due to this outstanding debt. Is there relief in sight? Either with lower interest rates or in some other manner?

Thanks so much

Sadly this problem goes back to the Reagan administration who changed a bunch of laws regarding student loans, and it wasn’t to the student’s advantage. I know this because I was in college during Reagan’s second term. Clinton tried to rectify this a bit, and actually it wasn’t until he passed some legislation that I was able to repay my student loans back after 10 years of feeling like I was carrying around an anvil on my shoulders.

Anyway back to you. And the sad fact that Republicans don’t like people being educated. Especially college, that should be reserved for their wealthy family members who if they had to really compete probably couldn’t actually get into college. (Of course this isn’t true of all wealthy people, there are great, brilliant people in all economic classes. But certainly if George W. Bush wasn’t a legacy would he have had any chance to go to Harvard or Yale? NO.) 

OK, here goes. Let’s ask: Will there be any legislation in the next four years that will ease the burden of people with student loans who currently have them?

The tarot’s answer:

Yes.

There will be legislation put forward that will pass, helping those saddled with student loan debt. It will have a charitable aspect, and a contribution aspect. And there will be some people violently opposed to helping out the non-wealthy college educated (fancy that). It looks like some sort of community service, or using your education to advance areas the nation will be interested in expanding, teaching and or serving in the military will be options to getting debt erased. It seems there will be some kind of program put in place to try to utilize people’s specialties to enhance the country’s standing in the world, to move the nation forward, and actually it looks like this program will be good for the country, and the individuals involved in it.

One caveat, it won’t be easy. Going into this program will take up time, make some people feel as if they’re stuck for awhile and be very competitive. But it will solve a lot of people’s student loan debt problems.

Best wishes to all and good luck!

Selling your stock — Fannie Mae — The Answer

The person who asked me about this stock recently bought it and wanted to know about this stock and Freddie Mac. Unfortunately, I did not have data for Freddie Mac. Most stocks are in my data base but not all. So here goes about Fannie Mae:

The bad aspects happening to this company are actually only beginning. With Uranus making a transiting opposition to the companies Pluto in the 12th house of loss, there will be major restructuring which we are starting to see. Pluto is slow moving and going back and forth as it retrogrades.

Right now transiting Uranus is retrograde, meaning it’s moving away from the opposition to the company’s Pluto in the 12th, but it will come back! And another major hit will take place in March of 2009.

This is only the beginning with transiting Uranus opposing natal Uranus later, then the company’s natal Venus, then Mercury. There will be major changes behind the scenes and a lot of loss as things are restructured. After all this happens the company (if it survives) will be almost unrecognizable version of what it once was.  

I honestly can’t give a good time to sell this stock as there are so many bad aspects and when a window seems to open seeming a tiny bit there are other bad aspects to offset it. I’d use your own intuition as there really isn’t going to be any opportune time to sell for a very long time and it’s not certain this institution will survive in the long term.

If you don’t have much tied up in it then perhaps waiting it out until May of 2011 would be OK. As long as you don’t have much to loose here.

If it were me I would get rid of it when the Sun goes over the first house Monday October 8 of this year because all these bad aspects might very well destroy this institution. I don’t know if you’ll make a profit or even break even, as this is the titanic and you hopped on as it’s burning!

I’m sorry to give the bad news.

Best wishes and good luck! Trust your intuition, that’s the best thing in this situation.
