Money In The Zodiac

Can you really find money in the zodiac?

Does your zodiac Sun sign make a difference in your money-making ability?

According to some studies, the zodiac sign you were born under does make some difference in financial well-being. So maybe it is possible to find money in the zodiac.

More Than Just A Sun Sign

But the fact is, your personal horoscope is more than just your Sun sign. In fact, when you consider all the planets, houses, zodiac signs, and potential aspect combinations, there are literally hundreds of factors to conducer in an analysis of a natal chart.

It can be very confusing – unless you know how to find the money in your horoscope.

As this new video demonstrates, even an extremely wealthy person has more to her chart than just simple Sun-sign evidence of money in the zodiac.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey provides good evidence that there’s money in the zodiac, but we need to look at more than just her Sun sign to see how money functions inner life.

Oprah Winfrey is a case in point – and even Donald Trump is no exception!

SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse April 15 2014

The SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse coming up on September 27 is creating quite a stir.

The mass media outlets love eclipses.

They give them opportunities to talk about once-in-a-lifetime events and never-before-seen cosmic phenomena.

Even if those phenomena are not really all that rare.

Take the SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse, for example.

It’s just a few days away, and the media is getting excited, describing it as the Eclipse of the Century.

They’re calling it a Blood Moon Eclipse.

They’re calling it a Harvest Moon Eclipse.

And, of course, they’re calling it a SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse.

So What’s A SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse?

It’s pretty simple, really. A SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse is just a lunar eclipse that happens at a SuperMoon.

Make that a Super Full Moon. Lunar eclipses can only happen at full moons.

And what’s a SuperMoon?

According to NASA, “A supermoon is a full or new moon that falls closest to the fall equinox, and is at its closest approach to the Earth. This results in the moon appearing up to 14% larger in diameter.”

That sounds pretty good. But it’s a more limited definition than was originally intended when the term was first used.

An Astrologer Got Here First

As I pointed out in a previous post on this blog, the term “SuperMoon” was first coined by astrologer Richard Nolle more than 30 hers ago.

He came up with the term, and since that time other astrologers and even some astronomers (most notably some of the ones at NASA) have been using it as well. It has gotten so much circulation, in fact, that it’s become a fairly common description of certain lunar phenomena.

And that’s where the confusion starts to come in.

As Richard Nolle himself puts it, “Clearly there’s a lot of confusion about what’s really a SuperMoon.

“When I see people misrepresenting the idea, not really understanding it at all, I feel impelled – not compelled – to try and set the record straight. Words mean things, after all…”

How NASA Changed The SuperMoon

Part of the confusion comes from the hysteria associated with the idea that a SuperMoon is some sort of evil omen, or a sign of certain disaster.

But even NASA has added to the mixed-up ideas about the SuperMoon.

Note that NASA’s definition says that only “a full or new moon that falls closest to the fall equinox, and is at its closest approach to the Earth” can be considered a SuperMoon.

But that doesn’t agree with Richard Nolle’s definition.

“SuperMoon is a word I coined in a 1979 article for Dell Publishing Company’s HOROSCOPE magazine, describing a new or full moon which occurs with the Moon at or near (within 90% of) its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit. In short, Earth, Moon and Sun are all in a line, with Moon in its nearest approach to Earth,” he explains.

Note that Nolle doesn’t limit SuperMoons to the new or full moon “closest to the fall equinox,” per the much later modification of the term by NASA.

Easier Than Perigee-Syzygy

“At any new or full moon,” Nolle goes on to say, “Earth and Moon and Sun are all in a line: Earth is in the middle in the full moon alignment, while the new moon happens with Moon in the middle. This coming together in an alignment is technically termed a syzygy.

“Sometimes – from a few times to a half-dozen times in a given year – these alignments also happen when the Moon is in its perigee, or closest approach to Earth. Astronomers call this very special alignment a perigee-syzygy. I call it a SuperMoon – which is a whole lot easier on the tongue.”

The restricted notion that NASA promotes severely limits, of course, the number of events that can be considered SuperMoons, which in turn makes SuperMoon Lunar Eclipses extremely rare indeed.

But Richard Nolle says that thinking of SuperMoons as extremely rare or unusual “is completely wrong. There are 4-6 SuperMoons a year on average.”

The SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse Roll Call

Even so, SuperMoon Lunar Eclipses, with a total lunar eclipse at the time of a SuperMoon, do occur infrequently enough that they deserve some special attention. According to Nolle’s calculations, there have just been 16 of them since the year 1900:

November 16, 1910, with the Moon at 23° Taurus

March 22, 1913, with the Moon at 01° Libra

April 2, 1930, with the Moon at 12° Libra

December 8, 1946, with the Moon at 16° Gemini

April 13, 1949, with the Moon at 22° Libra

April 2, 1950, with the Moon at 12° Libra

December 18, 1964, with the Moon at 27° Gemini

April 13, 1968, with the Moon at 23° Libra

September 8, 1979, with the Moon at 13° Pisces

December 30, 1982, with the Moon at 08° Cancer

May 8, 1985, with the Moon at 14° Scorpio

April 24, 1986, with the Moon at 04° Scorpio

September 16, 1997, with the Moon at 23° Pisces

January 21, 2000, with the Moon at 00° Leo

January 9, 2001, with the Moon at 20° Cancer

May 15, 2003, with the Moon at 24° Scorpio

The SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse of September 27, 2015.

The SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse of September 27, 2015.

When the next SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse arrives a few days from now, it will occur with the Moon in the fire sign Aries. It’s noteworthy that only of the 16 previous SuperMoon Lunar Eclipses – the one on January 21, 2000 – took place with the Moon in a fire sign.

Donald Trump’s Horoscope = Money

Trump's New York Battle

Donald Trump’s horoscope is worth examining. After all, Trump has been a hot news item during the past few months.

The provocation, of course, is his run for U.S. president. Right now his poll numbers have dropped slightly, but he’s still way ahead of other contenders for the Republican Party’s nomination.

Donald Trump’s horoscope says a lot about him, and it clearly matches what we can see of him in public. He’s flamboyant, outspoken, unpredictable, and a widely-known celebrity – all of which gives him plenty of free publicity.

Donald Trump's celebrity status has given him plenty of publicity in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Donald Trump’s horoscope helps explain some of the celebrity status that has given him plenty of publicity in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

And, of course, Donald Trump is also a billionaire. He can easily finance his own bid for the presidency, without having to depend on party bosses or wealthy donors.

What Makes Donald Trump Tick?

Although he’s a surprisingly complex individual, Donald Trump’s horoscope reveals some of his major strengths and idiosyncrasies in a very direct way. The balance of energies in his chart gives us some important clues to his real character.

But Donald Trump’s horoscope also shows his enormous capacity for wealth. It’s truly a powerful money chart.

Video Highlights of Donald Trump’s Horoscope

While it’s possible to do an in-depth study of all the nuances in Donald Trump’s horoscope, even a quick overview can reveal a lot about the man and what really make him tick.

A good place to start is with the new video I recently produced. It’s only about 7 minutes long, but it opens up some of the keys to finding the money in Donald Trump’s horoscope.

Australian Prime Minister Eclipsed

The Australian Prime Minister has been ousted – and his overthrow closely coincided with this week’s solar eclipse.

As I’ve mentioned a number of times in recent weeks, I have long been expecting the partial solar eclipse a few days ago to have a very big impact on global politics, the financial markets, and key economic and social dynamics.

In the new e-book on Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015, there’s a lot of analysis of currencies, stocks, commodities, historical eclipses, and potential hot spots around the world.

Ignoring The Australian Prime Minister

Even so, I have to confess that I wasn’t paying particularly close attention to domestic politics in Australia, and the Australian Prime Minister really wasn’t on my mind at all.

That’s why I was particularly grateful to get an email on Monday from Michael Correll in Sydney, with the subject line “Solar eclipse over Antarctica brings palace coup in Australia?”

“Dear Tim,” Michael wrote, “The recent Solar Eclipse over Antarctica and Jewish New Year appears to have brought a late-night palace coup to Australia with PM Tony Abbott being overthrown by lawyer and merchant-banker Turnbull MP.

“Turnbull is my MP for the federal seat of Wentworth In Sydney’s upscale Eastern Suburbs.”

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Woes

Tony Abbott

Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who was replaced at the partial solar eclipse of September 13, 2015.

During his tenure as Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott has certainly had his share of problems. Last February, after he had been in office for just 17 months, his own Liberal Party tried to unseat him from his post. Abbott described the event as “a near-death experience.”

But Abbott begged his party to give him more time to get his act together as the Australian Prime Minister, and his colleagues obliged by granting him six months to turn things around with his administration.

Even so, the Liberal Party continued to lose credibility under Abbott’s leadership, not only losing favor to the political opposition, but also many Australians who didn’t agree with Tony Abbott’s personal positions on key issues, including his stance opposing gay marriage.

Time Finally Runs Out For Abbott

With Abbott’s popularity among Australians plunging to just 15%, it had become increasingly clear that his days were numbered. Time ran out for the Australian Prime Minister with the solar eclipse on September 13.

Tony Abbott Eclipse Dial

The solar eclipse on September 13 (the red pointer) activated Hades in Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s natal horoscope, as well as the midpoints of Midheaven/Kronos, Ascendant/Zeus, Venus/Saturn, and Saturn/Vulcanus.

As this 90-degree dial for Tony Abbott’s horoscope shows, the eclipse triggered Hades, the transneptunian factor associated with decay, severe disappointments, and negative circumstances in general.

It also aligned with Midheaven/Kronos midpoint (to become the cause of your own obstacles and suffering); the Ascendant/Zeus midpoint (to come under pressure from spiteful individuals around you); the Venus/Saturn midpoint (broken alliances and impoverishment); and the Saturn/Vulcanus midpoint (to confront mighty opposition and to be placed in danger from enemies).

In short, the solar eclipse didn’t treat Tony Abbott very nicely!

A New Australian Prime Minister Takes Charge

Malcolm Turnbull

Malcolm Turnbull ousted Tony Abbott at the solar eclipse to become the new Australian Prime Minister.

On September 14, the day after the solar eclipse, Malcolm Turnbull resigned as Communications Minister in Tony Abbott’s cabinet, and then immediately announced that he was challenging Abbott’s leadership of the Liberal Party. In spite of a frantic last-minute attempt by Abbott to rally support, the Liberal Party members took a vote on the challenge the same day.

The ballot was the final blow for Tony Abbott. He lost by a 54-to-44 vote margin to Malcolm Turnbull, who then became the new Australian Prime Minister.

When he announced his challenge, Turnbull had fiercely attacked Tony Abbott, who, he said, had clearly lost the support of the Australian people and had “not been capable of providing the economic leadership our nation needs.”

The outcome of the party vote was a remarkable contrast to events in 2009, when the more conservative Tony Abbott beat Malcolm Turnbull for leadership of the Liberal Party by a margin of just one vote.

Turnbull was sworn in as the new Australian Prime Minister on September 15.

A Different Kind of Eclipse Effect

Given the outcome of the political wranglings in Australia this week, it’s interesting to compare the eclipse effects on Malcom Turnbull’s horoscope with those on the chart for Tony Abbott. We don’t have a record Turnbull’s birth time, but analysis on the 90-degree dial gives us a practical way of seeing the major impacts.

Malcolm Turnbull Eclipse Dial

We don’t have an exact time of birth for the new Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, but this 90-degree dial analysis shows the solar ellipse (the red pointer) triggering the midpoints in his natal horoscope for Sun/Saturn, Mercury/Jupiter, and Zeus/Poseidon. The net result is quite positive.

The contrast with Abbott’s chart is remarkable. The activation of the Sun/Saturn midpoint is an indication of an older man (Turnbull is three years older than Abbott) taking on a position of responsibility.

With Turnbull’s Zeus/Poseidon midpoint being triggered by the eclipse, we get a picture of strong leadership promoting new ideas. And the activation of the Mercury/Jupiter midpoint in Turnbull’s horoscope simply suggests that the solar eclipse was a time for good news and a cheerful mood, promoting lots of smiles and plenty of conversation.

Eclipse Effects Can Be Nuanced

As we see the differences in the solar eclipse effects in the lives of these two Australian Prime Ministers, it’s worth remembering that solar eclipses can have a long-lasting impact as well as more immediate results. We should also remember, of course, that astrological events move individuals, countries, and organizations in a variety of ways, depending on their interactions with the appropriate horoscopes involved.

That’s exactly why I invest so much time and energy studying the anticipated effects of solar eclipses, and why I share the results of that research in publications like Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015. The aim is to make sure that you’re up to speed with the potential for immediate short-term consequences, and that you have the tools you need to examine long-term eclipse effects as well.

Solar Eclipse Webinar Replay

We had a great crowd for our pre-eclipse webinar last night.

We got together online for a review of the basic astrological strategies that can be used to forecast the impact of a solar eclipse in mundane astrology, and to share some comments about today’s big solar eclipse as well.

Tips, Gifts & Solar Eclipse Esoterica

The session included some practical tips for active astro-traders, a little bit of esoteric knowledge, and some extra gifts for webinar participants.

The whole event took less than an hour, but we covered a lot of territory, and there plenty of positive feedback from the participants.

But I also got a bunch of emails last night from people who had missed the webinar, but still wanted to know about the potential impact of the solar eclipse on the markets.

That’s why I’m really glad that we got a good recording of last night’s webinar. It’s all been processed, and you watch the session in its entirety here:

As you watch the video, you’ll want to have pen and paper handy. We packed a lot of information into this session, and much of it will be useful to you in working with eclipses coming up in the future, in addition to the one that’s happening today.

Which reminds me. One of the tools that we shared during the webinar was a special Solar Eclipse List, featuring details about all the solar eclipses from 2015 through 2025. It’s a handy pdf cheat sheet that can speed up longer-term solar eclipse forecasting for astro-traders – you can download a free copy by CLICKING HERE.

Webinar Discounts

We also provided some special discounts for webinar participants, not only on our newly-published report Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015, but also on the classic (and massive) Solar Eclipse Secrets Collection e-book.

The new report just came out a few days ago, and the Solar Eclipse Secrets Collection compiles previous reports on seven solar eclipses.

Both of these publications are available from Harmonic Research Associates – and even if you’re just watching the video replay of the webinar instead of participating live, you can still take advantage of the discounts on these important publications by CLICKING HERE.

Watch The Markets

Be sure to keep an eye on any market you’re trading to take advantage of the solar eclipse effects. Remember that this solar eclipse will not only impact things on a short-term basis; it will also have residual effects that last for many months to come. You’ll find all the specific solar eclipse activation dates through the middle of 2016 listed in Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015.



Solar Eclipse Insights You Need

We’ve got an important solar eclipse coming up on September 13. So we’re definitely going to be looking for an impact in the markets.

A Powerful Solar Eclipse

This is a partial solar eclipse.

But it’s still going to be pretty powerful.

It’s a part of Saros Series 125. The first solar eclipse in that long sequence took place back in the year 1060.

And in fact there are some pretty amazing connections from 1060 to the circumstances we’re confronting today around the time of this latest eclipse.

The eclipse on September 13 also has a big impact on Donald Trump’s natal horoscope.

While the Trump connection may be entertaining (and maybe even politically important, too), it’s really the potential impact that the eclipse brings to the markets that’s most important to us as astro-traders.

A Detailed Study

That’s why I’ve put a couple of months into researching the eclipse effects on major markets around the globe. I’ve also looked at precious metals, currencies, vital commodities, and key organizations that can impact the world economy.

I’ve also reviewed the lunar returns to the solar eclipse horoscope, studied upcoming eclipse activation points, and identified special trading situations based on the anticipated effects of the solar eclipse.

I also turned to mundane astrologer Jim Cummins, to get his unique insights into the potential eclipse effects in the geopolitical realm. While I may not always agree with his politics, Jim’s observations are always work reading.

The result is a 128-page e-book which has just been released by Harmonic Research Associates.
