Dear Fellow Star-Gazers,
This Super Moon is super close to Earth and aligns with Saturn and Fixed star Skat: generally deemed a fortunate influence. The Moon is not at extreme declination and hopefully threatened hurricanes will reduce to serious but not deadly storm. Mercury crossed zero declination and a sudden change of wind
direction - though bringing catastrophe for some, should mean that feared for outcomes are avoided.
Over the next few days, we also welcome Venus' arrival as a Morning ‘Star’, as Sirius – a real star and not a planet– returns to our skies. What could all this possibly herald? This, and the upcoming eclipses as well as the Equinox chart
(which gives clues as to events for the next 3 months), will be discussed in the next monthly financial seminar. You can register for this at www.financialuniverse.co.uk
I had hoped to offer an Astro-Crypto summit but,
as you will read below, there have been developments here that have disrupted my schedule. The plan now is to make a recording and to have it available later this month. We will write to all those who have expressed interest and let you know when it is ready.
For now, a look back:
On August 16th at precisely 09.38 GMT, the Sun and Moon shared the same degree: 23 Leo. Every New Moon is special, but this one appeared at right angle to Uranus (planet of the unexpected) and often angular (ie prominent in a horoscope chart) at times of explosion, eruption, discontinuity, breakthrough or political upheaval. The mundane astrologer (one who scans charts looking for correlation between planet placement and global events) anticipated shocking and
high newsworthy events. With Uranus – planet of the unexpected – defining forecasts would be hard but have in common usually ‘unthinkable’ events.
The Lunar Node (destiny) was at the apex (Midheaven) of the New Moon chart through the city of Atlanta where ex President Trump was arrested. Who could have imagined a few years ago, the ‘mugshot’
of a President of the United States appearing on global newspapers?
In Moscow, the New Moon appeared directly overhead; suggesting that Russia disturbing news from that part of the world. Prighozin, head of the Wagner group was killed when his private plane plummeted to Earth: a victim of assassination?
On the other side of the world, the New Moon chart set for Shanghai, found Uranus at the IC (base) of the chart: its angular position indicating the probability of shocking news regarding property. Zhongzhi Enterprise, the Chinese ‘shadow bank’, whose liquidity crisis fanned fears about financial contagion, announced plans to restructure its debt and to sell assets in
order to repay investors. Evergrande (Chinese property empire) filed for bankruptcy in New York. It may be that the housing slump in China is worse than official figures show, with existing-home prices down at least 15% in prime areas of Shanghai and Shenzhen.
As you likely know, there is a property cycle that is seductively similar to the lunar nodal cycle. This cycle seems to break into three unequal parts: the third part of which - and where we seem to be now - brings considerable volatility prior to collapse. Some valuations are now frankly absurd with both commercial and business properties
affected. Buyers might be well advised to wait a few years for prices to fall whilst those thinking of selling should perhaps start now – though obviously so much depends on your personal chart and the chart of the location and country.
It would be understandable if investors felt that market prices were now too high or unsafe and September 8th: could see falling prices. This should be temporary until the week beginning Sept 18th when once again indices could move upward but enter ‘unsafe’ territory once more. Those waiting for a major fall or correction should perhaps hold fire until the late October lunar eclipse.
RESPITE AND PLANNING
After four difficult years and the challenge of project managing care schedules, I am overdue for a break. The cosmos has come up with a brilliant plan and near perfect
location for Michael to enjoy 5 star spa and health care. This will give me opportunity to refresh his room and be ready for the next stage of our lives together. It will also give me space to concentrate on two presentations at the forthcoming STA conference https://sta.co/conference and to do further work on the next book. If all goes well, I might even grab a few days in
Until the next Full Moon,
Yours from the stars
