Answering Readers…

Hello everyone. Hope you all have had a wonderful start to the new year. I’m going to do a post (over the weekend) explaining how to figure out your personal year (numerology) and what it means for you. It’s pretty fun and always interesting to look back and see the cycles of your own life. In numerology you go through years 1-9 and then start over again. And from my own observation there does seem to be resonance when looking back 9 years prior. It’s not the same of course, but the issues do seem to have cross over. But I’ll save that for later.

Here’s the first question from Sallyy:

sallyy

Denise, Can you give recommendations on books on Tarot, or ways to study Tarot? You said you learned from the Brotherhood of Light. Do you recommend C.C. Zain’s book? Thanks, Sally

Hi Sallyy,

I checked out the C.C. Zain book after you mentioned it on the blog, but only in a cursory way. It looked good to me. I learned from a person from the Brotherhood of Light, but I did read a zillion books about tarot before that happened, and found most of them to be rather unhelpful. It was always like a bad cook book where you had to look up things, and try to apply too many interpretations to a card. Which is why early on I chucked my Rider-Waite deck and book, and used the Motherpeace deck. It was much easier for me to relate to, and to read without having to look everything up; I could use its images to unleash associations and focus on the person.

Actually this is really how using the cards work best. More as a tool like a scrying mirror or crystal ball would work, but with more to go off of. The best astrologers and numerologists work this way as well. That being said you can learn the craft of reading which is rooted in the Kabbalah, and numerology.

It looked like the Zain book actually delved into this quite a bit, however the writing seemed a bit arcane and well, occult. If you have done a lot of reading on the subject it probably will all make sense, if not it might be kind of dense. However, the book is down loadable for free so you might as well read it! There seemed to be a lot of good information in there. Here’s the link to the free down load in case you don’t have it or other people are interested:

My other suggestion would be to really research all the decks that are out there and find one that speaks to you and practice reading your friends. When doing this, first clear your mind, do a protection and ask your higher self/God/Goddess/Universe/Creator whatever your personal connection is to the divine, to give you the absolute truth while you read. It is also helpful to have a visualization you do before reading. I imagine a light switch, and then a damn breaking, and all the water from my subconscious coming through to my conscious mind. You might want to visualize turning on a faucet, or opening the third eye chakra, or whatever you want, just something that makes sense to you and allows you to focus while letting the Universe know you are connected and ready to receive information.

Friends have sworn by the workbook, “Tarot for Yourself,” by Mary K. Greer. Here’s a link to it: Tarot for Your Self : A Workbook for Personal Transformation Second Edition

Hope that helps!

The next question comes from Steven:

Hi Denise; I was looking at the transits to the USA natal chart; would you please comment regarding the transiting Saturn conjunct natal Neptune and square natal mars? Also on today’s trigger transiting Mars opposite natal financial Venus and transiting Pluto applying opposition to natal financial Venus (mid January to end of March)? I have read on financial astrology sites, that this chart is used also for the US dollar. I would appreciate your insight. kind regards, Steven

Hi Steven,

I’ll post the different US charts here and we can talk about them. There are actually 3 but I’m only going to post 2, because these 2 seem the most significant to me. They are the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution signing. Here they are:

picture-5Looking at both of these charts and the date of 9-29-2008 when we had the -777 plunge, they are both pretty awful but it seems that the Declartion chart describes in greater detail what happened and with more clarity. The fall can be seen in both through different aspects but since the Declaration chart seems to be more in keeping with the financial crisis let’s go ahead and use it to answer your question.

Quite honestly I was hoping that the Signing chart was going to be more accurate because it would be less painful but with all those planets in the 8th house of the financial industry and other people’s money in Cancer at early degrees, Yikes! Pluto is going to make hard core oppositions to this starting around inauguration. To make it worse Pluto which rules this chart will be opposing Venus (money) and in the 8th house.  And then as Pluto progresses it will hit Jupiter, then the Sun and finally Mercury making this period of adjustment a long one.

In terms of transiting Saturn conjuncting natal Neptune that is in the Signing chart and won’t be felt until the fall of 2011. This transit will first trigger a trine to Pluto and then to natal Saturn so it could actually be more related to the re-structuring of the international banking laws for the better and trigger a new power structure in regards to how the global economy works.

However in the Declaration chart Saturn will be making a square to all those Cancer planets starting at the end of November and this could add extra strain on the economy as issues relating to the law and more wall street scandals both come out and are prosecuted. This will also trigger new regulations.

So in regards to your question, “Also on today’s trigger transiting Mars opposite natal financial Venus and transiting Pluto applying opposition to natal financial Venus (mid January to end of March)?” What those astrologers are referring to with transiting Mars is a trigger. It’s Pluto that is doing the major damage but Mars will help it along and kick it off this will happen around the 18/19th of March 2009, also the Moon will be in Cap, adding extra oomph to the whole thing. That could also be a very bad day for the stock market and the value of our money. 

Hope that helped to clarify some of it.

Best wishes to all and many blessings,

Denise

Answering Readers’ Questions… Focus on The Economy & Stock Market

DERA

For a long time the oil companies, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical companies have gouged the public. Will there ever be changes that will benefit the good of the public instead of these companies?

Also, I read somewhere that there will be fewer doctors. The reason is due to problems dealing with the insurance companies.

Hi Dera,

This is a great question, one we’d all be interested in knowing.  So lets look at a couple different charts for the US, and see what will be going on in the world of doctors and health care as time progresses.

all-3-us-chartsOK, we can do a lot more here then just look at health care. There are a few things I want to point out before I get to that. If you notice in the Declaration of Independence chart (our official birth date 7/4,1776) you’ll notice a preponderance of planets in the 8th and spilling into the 9th house. Let me explain why this chart, while it does have resonance with our country still, and is used by some astrologers is often seen as not being the official chart of the country.  

Let me explain the 8th house thing spilling into the 9th (8=cults, 9=foreigners), that would be the Pilgrims, the Quakers, the Shakers and all the small radical religious groups that “came over,” (actually many were kicked out of England because of their beliefs) during that time. It was these people who founded this nation, and that energy which is all very 8th house is the bedrock of our nation, sort of like our subconscious.

However, just because we declared our Independence we still were not truly legal until the US Constitution started, and was signed. Often the later is used as the true north of the US because it is comprable to a marriage date as opposed to when you first started dating. It’s the completion of what was started on July 4, 1776. That being said, the first date with your spouse is also very important because it sets the tone of a relationship.

Our Declaration, definitely set the tone for our nation, which is why we are a haven for radical religious (cult-like or lets come on out and just say it cults). 

Truly the only difference between a cult and an organized religion like Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism or Judaism is the length of time and amount of people that identify themselves as part of that religion, so I don’t mean to demean the word “cult,” all religions start out as cults. Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, the Mormons started out this way, the Shakers, the Quakers, Scientology is now becoming more acceptable and less seen as a cult. Basically, once a religion goes from a small group to an institution it looses its cult status.

But, anyway, I digress. I want to also say that I just looked at all 3 charts and compared them to 9/11 and found the most accurate by far to be the US Constitution signing chart. Someone had posted much earlier (sometime in September or October) that the US Declaration chart had been used by Liz Greene and somehow she had found a way to make it dovetail with the 9/11 attacks. I would very much doubt this to be true, and this reader was probably confused. Liz Greene more than likely used the Constitution Signing chart because if you look at it in terms of transits, it should have been a very good period with Jupiter returning and hitting this charts stellium in Cancer. And transiting Pluto is not making any close opposing aspects. Perhaps she used a solar arc chart or a progressed chart based on it but it couldn’t have been that actual chart with the transits.

Anyway in the US Constitution Chart, transiting Pluto had just gone over the US Cons. Sign. chart’s Moon and squared Mercury ruler of the 8th house, both death aspects and transiting Neptune was in the 12th house of loss making an applying a conjunction to the ascendant, again major loss. The 12th and 8th house are both death houses, and both Neptune and Pluto are key to major loss, transformation, literal and figurative death.  

So lets focus on the US Constitution Chart as it seems most accurate in terms of transits. 

1st your question of health-care:

In the spring of 2009 we’ll see the first in a series of bills aimed at health-care reform as transiting Uranus in Pisces goes through the first house and opposes the US cons. sign. chart’s Sun. The way we see this issue has been changing over the past seven or so years, our minds began changing then when Uranus opposed Mercury in the 7th. And then as bankruptcy laws changed and increases in health-care costs went up, Uranus opposed Venus in the 7th, again highlighting the financial need for laws to change how we deal with our health-care system, pointing out the lack of human kindness in it. And finally when it hits the Sun in spring of 09, the vitality of this issue, the soul of the problem will be tackled in a bill. This aspect will go back and forth for a while so it will be the first in a series of several major changes to the system we now have in place.

It probably won’t be until May of 2010 until these changes are really put into action. This will be when transiting Uranus in Pisces will be trining the US cons. sign’s Uranus in the 6th house of health and the health-care system. This overhaul will be immediate, and a bit of a shock to the system, but will be a great improvement especially for women and children, and those who don’t have steady employment, but work more piece meal.

In terms of the Pharmaceutical company’s getting there’s — it’s coming. In February of 2012 when Neptune (ruler of their industry) enters Pisces they will start to see their days ripping off Americans coming to an end. This same thing can be said of the oil companies who are also ruled by Neptune. Companies who lower their prices and make sacrifices will stay in business, and do very well. Volume will be the key to this business and be very profitable from that angle. Those that want to continue making 150,000,000% profit off each pill will go under. The oil industry will have to basically do what its doing now, keep cheap in order to survive. Even then as Neptune goes into Pisces alternative types of fuel will become the mainstay, most likely hydrogen based, either water itself or hydrogen engines this will happen in 2012.

Of course all of these changes won’t happen overnight, little by little we’ll see things headed down this path, and this trend will continue until about 2025. So hopefully by the end of it we will be a completely green world. Let’s cross our fingers that is one potential outcome.

My guess is that at that time (2025 when Uranus enters Aries) the pharmaceutical industry will have a revolution of a different sort, and will be more nano-technology driven, with tiny micro surgical techniques in the form of pills that will release tiny robots that will cut out ulcers or cancers or whatever, very early on, staving off the need for more traditional medicine in a lot of cases.

Hi Denise, I have a question in relation to the property market in Australia. Will property crash in Australia? Will it drop more than 30%?

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Truthseeker,

Real Estate will crash or bottom out in 2011, truly bottom out. Meaning the value of houses will go under. I’m not familiar enough with the real estate market down there but if you feel that the houses are really over valued, this will be when they are not just “corrected” but when they are actually worth less then what logic dictates that they should be. People will not want to buy real estate during this period. They will be afraid of it. This is when you should buy real estate. You can make a fortune at that time until about 2013. Then you still can make money but not as much. It will hit a peak again starting around 2018 and really 2019, 2020, people will be going crazy again like they just did for it. so there you go. Hope that helps.

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,

I still have the feeling that the Dems are just barely going to crack that 60 margin. I lost track of where it was now. It’s hard to believe its still going on! And no one really cares! That’s the amazing thing, it shows how good things are on the political front at least.

Hi and thanks Denise,
This may be a tarot card question.
Will COMEX gold default in December? Many analysts are predicting this will happen when so many paper gold contracts holders demand physical delivery,that the COMEX will be unable to meet the demand. (Now, physical gold is trading at far higher prices than the COMEX paper gold and COMEX price corruption is suspected).

Hi Sally Ann,

The tarot says: Yes.

It seems there has been some lying going on. Some illusion, delusion, some mismanagement and whoever was in charge has just sort of walked away from the problem leaving the company and investors in the lurch, while taking what they could from the situation. Not good. Hope this turns out to be a false read on the situation, here. But that’s what the cards are saying. Sometimes though the cards aren’t very good with timing. Astrology is much better for that.

I want to clarify a basic note here. I wish I could have seen the little bump up last week in the stock market, but as I said before there is too much novelty here to read the market for these. There is too much irrational, emotional stuff clouding the zeitgeist of the market. It’s almost as if everyone is on amphetamines, stuffed into a theater in the dark, and someone shouts “Fire!” There’s a stampede before anyone bothers to look around, and see if there actually is one or if its just a nut yelling it.

And on the other end of that, are the financial “experts” who are kissing the “ouchy’s” of investors and lulling them back into the market with false expectations that everything is OK when it’s not which is why we saw this crazy drop when the news came out that we are in a recession. Duh. Really? It’s ridiculous. And I’m sure in another month it will be news that we’re in a Depression that will cause the market to plummet. But look around, it doesn’t take a genius to figure this out.

The arguement against why this isn’t a Depression is a very flimsy one right now. It is simply that unemployment isn’t high enough. But back when George W. took office his administration changed the laws so that as soon as your 6 months of unemployment ran out you were taken out of the unemployment statistics. So how many people have been unemployed for years? We don’t know. They aren’t being counted. This is a hidden problem, another shadow that we’ll see come out when Pluto pops over the ascendant of the Dow.

Here’s the other thing, in the Decleration chart Pluto is about to shred it. I’m glad it’s not our real chart, (and if it is well, we’ll know it for sure soon) but rather our more unconscious one, or we’d be in even bigger trouble then we already are. But it’s still posed to do some major damage to our US Cons. Sign chart this will happen a little later though in March of 2009, and will again most likely hit speculators and the stock market.

Ironically, this Monday Pluto hit 0 degrees again as it had the last time we had the major drop in November, and that is directly on the US Const. Sign charts south node in the 5th — meaning, what we have reaped in the market we are going to be sowing, and it’s going to be powerful, and painful. I think the Dow’s big Pluto over the ascendant happening at the end of December into January will be more about the horrible corruption, lies and sociopathic behavior of CEOs that will come out making investors think twice about trusting their money to these people, many of whom are really criminals in business suits. This is the shore I think the Tsunami is headed in terms of the Dow.

OK, More questions tomorrow. These will be covered over the next couple of days:

Be well. Best wishes to all. Pray for our planet and each other. We need it now!

Hi Denise,

You asked for more information on the mutual funds I inquired about.
MEURX – Mutual European (Z fund) – Fund inception date is 7/3/1996
MDISX – Mutual Discovery (Z fund) – Fund inception date is 12/31/1992
I don’t know if this matters or not, but in November 1996, Heine Securities Corporation, known for the Mutual Series of funds, merged into the Franklin Templeton complex.

Thanks.

Denise, Thank you for the charts on Boeings. Here is some info on Airbus that I found -Airbus Industrie was formally established as a Groupement d’Interet Economique (Economic Interest Group or GIE) on 18 December 1970.
2000 three of the four partner companies (DaimlerChrysler Aerospace, successor to Deutsche Airbus; Aérospatiale-Matra, successor to Sud-Aviation; and CASA) merged to form EADS. If this doesn’t help – I’ll keep searching but I appreciate your efforts of trying. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Dear Denise,

Thank you for your analysis and insights. In these troubled times on a lot of fronts ( financial, physical and even spiritual ) you provide clarity and hope.

I have two questions.

1 – Urban survival. In which timeframes do you see possible shortages of food and basic necessaties?
2 – When will the dollar downtrend and demise commence?

To readers of this blog, please do google “urban survival” and make some basic preparations.

Peace

Hi Denise:
Great postings!
Wondering about Citicorp (c). I think you ran a chart, but I didn’t find the interpretation for it. Given recent bail outs, will it survive?
If you have time, I am wondering about US Steel (x) and Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold, Inc (FCX), Google (GOOG), Intel (INTC), Foster Wheeler Ltd. (FWLT), Procter & Gamble (PG), and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation (BNI).
Many Thanks,
Wei

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…

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

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! -)

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 AstroDatabankhttp://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
