Dear Fellow Star-Gazers
Super Full Moon!
A Full Moon is awarded ‘super’ status if it comes too close to Earth. This Full Moon is the first of a series of four Supermoons, with the third on Aug 31st, (a Blue Moon as it is the second to occur in August) closest of all to Earth at 222,043 miles (the average is 222,900 miles)
Super Moons appear brighter than usual and affect both air and water tides. We are taught about the latter, but air tides are just as important. Together these tides affect terrestrial weather patterns and yes, this summer should see unusual activity. The effect on human behaviour will likely be considerable too – so anticipate over-reaction. This could be
exceptional given other strong aspects: including Mars' opposition to Saturn when many people may feel that they are negotiating unfamiliar obstacles..
When the Moon’s declination aligns with that of one of the planets, the potential for increased hurricane, monsoon or typhoon activity – or
exceptionally emotional human behaviour - is increased. In this respect July 21st and 31st and August 1st and 30th/31st are notable.
CRISIS, CURRENCIES & FRANCE
I have particular concern about the last day of July and early August when the Moon’s declination is that of Pluto, whilst Uranus and Vesta are also in parallel, as are Venus and Mars. This could prove a tumultuous time for world currencies. If you watched my recent ‘Future of Europe’ presentation (https://youtu.be/4hxtdtgGX0Y), then you will know that I was concerned that as Pluto returned to an area of the zodiac last visited at the time of the French Revolution, that there would likely be growing dissatisfaction with the present regime and high probability of unrest. Today I heard an analysis suggesting that this is ‘the
time of year’ when such action has occurred in the past. Rarely has that coincided with Four Super Moons and I fear that civil unrest and disobedience will stretch that country’s police and military forces to the maximum.
Venus has a crucial role to play: on July 23rd, beginning a 40 day retrograde period – something that will be discussed in my monthly financial seminar (you can register and book here; https://www.financialuniverse.co.uk/event-registration/). This Venus station coincides with major transits to the charts of both the USA and the Federal Reserve amongst others, as well as to the most recent chart used for France. It
seems reasonable to forecast a costly summer with both financial and political pressure building, including a sharp market correction.
Although Wall Street’s biggest banks passed the Fed’s annual stress test with 23 banks apparently sufficiently robust to cope with either a global recession or collapse in real estate prices, my reading of planetary positions suggests something different. Perhaps the
stress test was not strong enough – certainly the last days of July should prove challenging.
There is a recognisable property cycle that divides into three segments of varying length and linked to the Moon’s nodal cycle. By the New Moon on July 17th, the lunar node will have moved into Aries where it crosses the degree of the April 20th solar eclipse. I anticipate news of property price collapse across the world: an astro-rhythm I will show in the July 23rd event.
Nor should Mercury’s position relative to Earth be ignored. This planet has an extended stay in Virgo (July 29th to Oct 5th) and is retrograde between August 24th and the New
Moon on September 15th. As this overlaps Venus’ retrograde dates, the last days of August – as with July, but for different reasons should prove commercially demanding with high probability of another market correction.
Every index and company reacts – as with a human – differently to developing planetary pictures. In monthly seminars we decode an index, a planetary pairing for foreign exchange or crypto currency or a share price. The next event on July 23rd will focus on Venus. (Please note that you can bulk purchase these seminars at discount with recordings sent monthly).
GOLD & SILVER
It is entirely reasonable to expect that the prices of these commodities will experience marked volatility over the next few months. I anticipate a change in gold and silver direction on July 10th,
then 23rd and Monday 31st July. Silver could also show marked reaction on Monday July 17th.
WHEAT & WAR
Yes, there is a chart for
wheat which I will present in the next seminar. As of July 1st, one in five cargoes of the world’s wheat will come from Russia which has seen a bumper harvest. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s production is severely hampered by land mines and general logistics. The threat to world food supplies is great with wheat prices likely to rise.
At a meeting in Portugal, it was suggested that the Fed may hike interest rates in both July and
September. The astrology confirms July but not September.
Next Saturday I am giving a workshop on astro-money management for Synchronicity University. If you have a copy of your birth chart, I hope that you will find this a helpful event and I am grateful to Nadiya
Shah for giving me the opportunity to improve your money management through greater understanding of planet cycles. https://www.synchronicityuniversity.com/
My husband’s parkinsonism continues to challenge us. However, there is much for us to enjoy: including the romantic antics of two of the Leo carers (yes Venus is already working magic and Cupid’s arrows are in the air). As always, I am so very grateful for your good wishes and support. Michael and I will celebrate 42 years of marriage (he gets the medal) this month which is quite wonderful.
For now, wishing you and yours well,
Yours from the stars
