Answering Readers’ Questions…

More questions from readers. The first comes from Judy Ann:

With a active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii causing severe air pollution and a bad real estate market here as well as everywhere else when would be the best time to sell a home And by the way your concern for others and your generosity are really wonderful judy

Hi Judy and thank you,

Unfortunately the real estate market is going to get worse before it gets better. It will really bottom out in 2010, but will be really bad as well in 2011. It won’t turn around until about 2013. Now If you can hold on until the end of 2018-2020, you will make a fortune. This will be like the boom we saw before this past crash. I’m talking about homes though, and not commercial property. If you bought your property when the market was down before (from about 1994-1996) you’ll still do fine selling now, even if it takes awhile. So if you need to get out of the area, I would say do it sooner rather than latter, the real estate market is only going to get worse before it gets better.

I’ll have to check on the other issue you mentioned, the volcano. I’ll try to find the chart of the big island if I can and post what I find about a potential eruption, which I’m sure people are afraid of if it’s smoking and as you mentioned the air pollution must be horrible and not helping tourism much.

Hope that helped some for now. I’ll come back to the other issues in a later post.

Best wishes.

Then perhaps you are seeing gold being confiscated by governments like the US government has done in the past. People would be forced to use paper currencies and thus no legit market for gold.

I assume you see the same for all precious metals, silver, platinum, as well as precious metal mining stocks?

I’ll have to ask the tarot about this one because its pretty broad and its not like there are charts for precious metals. So here goes:

I asked the tarot if the US government confiscated gold would it confiscate other precious metals, too?

The answer:

An emphatic, yes. 

However I wasn’t specific about which precious metals. I could go through the list of which ones if you’d like to repost and ask that specific question. But it seems investing in precious metals is not the answer to our collective financial woes right now. 

The next question comes from Celli:

Hi,
Thanks for your answer. Dont want to hog the show, but if you can answer these I’d be grateful. There are preduictions elsewhere that suggest that:

1) the elections might be stolen by fraud;

2) if this happens, there’s likely to be a huge riot of youth causing much loss of life.

What does the tarot say about the likelihoood of these two things happening?

I’ll have to ask the tarot about these possibilities. I’m sure we are all worried about this after the last 2 dubious elections. 

Question 1: Will the 2008 Presidential election be stolen by fraud?

Thank God… Phew…

The answer: No

There will be attempts but no.

It seems those who betrayed us in the past are being watched and know they can’t get away with it this time. They have their hands tied and are too afraid of going to jail if they try it again. 

So I guess we don’t have to ask the second half since it was a strong no.

Hi. I was wondering if McCain’s chart could cause a global depression how Rupert Murdoch’s chart, DOB: 3/11/31 interacts with the DOW since his company News Corp purchased it on 8/1/07, per the BBC news report. Might it be a collapse of just the DOW?
I was wondering how the Nasdaq chart might fair? It seems to holding up better against the Dow. Just looking for a glimmer of hope!
Thanks!

Thanks for this information and it’s a very interesting question. I was not aware Murdoch bought the Dow.

So I ran his chart.

Karma is a beautiful thing. Isn’t it? Here’s a man who has spent his whole life creating propaganda selling his own personal agenda under the illusion of news, purely out of blind ambition and greed. Oh, how the mighty fall. Great timing that he bought the Dow just before it was about to explode. It’s going to take him with it. And it doesn’t look like he did the Dow’s chart any good. He just further exacerbates many negative and explosive aspects inherent in the chart being triggered by current and soon to be transiting aspects. I’m going to post the charts here for everyone to see and then explain a little more.

You see how Murdoch has his rising at 1 degree Capricorn exactly conjunct the Dow’s Moon. This and the fact that he has his South Node (past life karma) smack on the Dow’s South Node and Neptune, well it isn’t too good for him. Not too good for the Dow either, but the Dow was going to suffer anyway even if Murdoch didn’t buy it. It just makes things worse for both of them.

Oddly, when we had the first big plunge Uranus was in Pisces at 20 degrees sitting exactly on Murdoch’s Sun in the 4th house (his legacy). Uranus brings radical changes, upheaval. He will see his life and image exposed for what it is over the next few years and there is a very real chance the fortune he has spent his life making will widdle away, perhaps in a way like William Randolph Hearst who also used the media for his own agenda. Maybe the lesson here is, one should never mess with the 4th estate without expecting universal repercussions.

I’m also posting the NASDAQ chart here:

I’m sorry to say there are also some bad transits hitting the NASDAQ. It has been a little more protected for several reasons, but will become more vulnerable during the 3rd week of this month. There will be ongoing problems here. I’ll have to go into more detail later about the NASDAQ. In general the NASDAQ has much better natal aspects for investors then the DOW does. But there’s a lot of trouble coming down the pike for it as well with a bunch of squares and oppositions and nasty aspects. Like I said I’ll post more detailed info about that tomorrow. 

So in answer to your question, Rupert Murdoch doesn’t help the DOW, but he’s not the cause of its failing right now. I think fate wanted to teach him a lesson about power and money by enticing him into this purchase before its collapse.

How does one buy the DOW? That’s insane in itself. 

Thanks for your question it was very interesting.

And the next question comes from Dazzle:

I’ve pretty much written these off as basket cases, after losing 70-95% on them. Do they have a future or not.

Cityview Corporation Limited, M2M Corporation Limited , Babcock & Brown Limited

Thanks

Hi Dazzle: 

The only chart data I have is for Cityview. I’m going to post the it for you. I hope its the same stock you are wanting me to look at.

I can see Uranus has been ripping through the companies 8th house opposing a bunch of stuff in its natal 2nd. Not good for investors or people who work for this company. If it does get through this hard time it will have Neptune making similar aspects. If it’s an oil company that might not be a bad thing.

You know looking at the chart I get the feeling that this company has never really been very stable and with Neptune ruling its 8th house has never been a big money maker for its investors (unless it is an oil company.) There are some very bright people with good ideas who work here, but it has a tendency to bleed money. What sort of company is this? Are they more service oriented or driven by innovation, both sides show up here. Depending on how they are focused, or decide which way to go will determine whether it survives or not. Just being a service provider will make them some money in a small way, but it won’t really sustain them or build profit. They need to invest in new technology. If the company goes in that direction they have a chance of doing OK in the future. Fill me in on what you know about the company in a post and I’ll take a look at it more in depth.

Hi

We are going to NY in Mar 09 to see our son. What is your view on the AUD/USD exchange rate then.

Thanks

Hello Cayantgee:

I’ll ask the tarot if the Australian Dollar will be up against the US dollar during March of 09:

The answer was: No. 

It doesn’t look like the Australian Dollar will be up against the US dollar. 

I asked if the Australian Dollar would go down further against the US dollar then it is now in March of 09:

The answer: Yes

You might want to consider changing some money now and sitting on it. I’d be conservative about it and just watch how things go. If it keeps going down then change more before it gets too bad. Sorry about that. I was a bit surprised by this answer to be honest.

Best wishes to all and good luck!

Here are the rest of these questions that will be answered tomorrow. I will also answer new posts.

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 North Node and The Real Estate Market…

I’ve been an annoying Cassandra, just ask my friends, about the current real estate mess. Way back in the late 1990s I kept telling my friends to wait before buying a house because most had missed the last low point (especially here in Los Angeles) which was the mid-1990s up until 1996 when it started to turn around. 

I knew this not because of the coming lending debacle, but because of the North Node.

Years ago, I found a book on the dictates of the real estate market according to the Moon’s North Node (the moon rules real estate.) This book had empirical evidence: the last two hundreds years of ups and downs in the market. It was clear, when the North Node was or is in Cancer, people go crazy for houses, and the value of real estate skyrockets. When the North Node is in its opposite sign Capricorn, nobody wants to buy! People think of real estate as a liability.

Now of course both perspectives are true depending on your situation. But if you buy when the North Node is in Capricorn, going against your own inner compass, telling you to stay away from the housing market, that’s when you actually will make money. 

The thing is, this real estate drop is only just beginning. It really bottoms out in 2009/2010. We haven’t seen the worst of it yet. If you can stay in your home for another six or so years after that, then sell! SELL! SELL! and get your money back, buy something smaller within your means or rent for another six years, and buy when the market crashes again. 

The North Node goes in approximately 12 year cycles. And so far in my lifetime I have seen this to be absolutely accurate. So far, I was right about the beginning of the bottom being 2008 as the North Node approaches Capricorn.

For those of you who want to find something to invest in, in a few years. Invest at that time in real estate. I’d say you’ll start to see it turn around where people feel comfortable again around 2011 and if you’re still scared wait until then and rebuild whatever you lost during this time. It will be a great opportunity. Buy an extra piece of property and sit on it for 6 years and you will see your money quadruple or triple or at least double. 

But not now! If you buy real estate now you will have to weight about 8 years and you will end up paying more for a property then it will end up being worth in a few years so, hold off.

That’s my advice for anyone interested.

Best wishes and good luck.
