So many of my clients are asking for the financial news according to Astrology, that I have written the following article.

This year, 2009, there are some major planetary changes for everyone.  The entrance into Capricorn by Pluto and Jupiter into the sign of Aquarius is now occurring.  These two planets are important to the U.S., Pluto causing the need to transform American Banking, Stocks and Money dealings in general, andJupiter showing promise of new answers by a popular President. 

Jupiter will be in that positive position for one year.  Pluto, however, will be joined and strengthened in its place of reworking the financial sector,  by several other major planets that can cause havoc with America’s money issues for at least three years and somewhat into 2012.  Positive and stable planets will come more into the picture in 2013 that will establish a feeling of security and actions that will bring faith in the economy. 

There is a strong likeness in the stars, now, to the early thirties sky, especially in 2010.  However, in our decade, there are  more safety measures and checks and balances that can help soften the recessional energies.

Because this is a worldwide scenario, we are all under the karma of the group, nations and peoples of the earth and will undergo changes that effect us all. 

Many old ways of doing things will give way to better and more equitable systems.  Still the transition and nature of these energies will be felt and some will suffer more than others. 

At an individual level, it is our chance to become humanitarians, especially
when  the need comes to our doors and communities.  The slogan of “Love all, Serve All” certainly comes to mind now.  Givers and Receivers, both will find their strengths and the Aquarian age of equality and brotherhood will take on new meaning, actuality and require more involvement and action by all.

People who are born in the first 10 days of the signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will have the most difficulty over the next few years and also people with individual natal planets in those locations.  (The U.S. falls into that category of Cancer).  Naturally, other planets in individual charts and countries can help balance this planetary stress.

Taurus, Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius and Aquarius signs or planets, will have the least stress, while Virgo and Pisces energies are in neutral, but they may find it difficult to move forward.

The Challenging side of things in every sign will be different.  The practical, long-term planners, such as Taurus, Capricorn and some Virgos may face having to make strong changes in their plans several times.  These signs play by the rules and by stable formulas and expect the world to work in the same way.  Erratic circumstances and events are not within their scope to deal with. 

Geminis, Librans and Aquarians, who usually roll with the punches and enjoy some change may find that alternate choices don’t offer better solutions and their innovative thinking may not bring better results.  Change is also in the nature and lifestyle of Cancers, Scorpios and Pisces, they find patience and waiting for results very difficult. Over the next several years they are less likely to find havens of safety and security.  The outgoing and adventurous signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarians may enjoy the economy game briefly until their options run out.  These signs have a tendency to risk it all and may have to depend on others for help which will be difficult for these independent people.

The Positive side of things for Taurus, Virgo and Capricorns will be their patience and being able to ride  out difficult situations, while establishing new guidelines and programs that help to make sense out of confusing situations.  They are practical and know when to cut back and when to move forward with new programs.  While they would rather be the giver  than the receiver, they will be learning to appreciate the kindness of others and will work as a community for the sake of the whole.  These signs are primarily concerned with usefulness and programs that work.   Earth sign comfortable coping skills are cutting back, paring down and waiting.

Geminis, Librans and Aquarians are the information signs of the zodiac.  They are wonderful  at collecting all facts figures and details.  Working in conjunction with new situations, and bringing problems to light is their forte.  They will contribute many ideas for the improvement of humanity, especially in the fields of technology, science and ecology.  As the current world situation changes and the challenge for improvement in these areas  approaches, these signs will be at the front. Getting information out to others will be their primary concern. Air sign coping skills include using their minds by getting involved with self-help programs and taking advantage of new systems.

Cancers, Scorpios and Pisces are earth parents and nurturers.  They see the individual and personal needs of  humanity.  While they are capable of running businesses, they are more drawn to getting the necessities of life to the suffering and are wonderful at finding those who have fallen through the cracks of larger services. They identify with the feelings of others  making them very approachable. These signs will take care of the human challenge while the world  structures are being repaired.  Water signs tend to share during difficult times.  Many will share transportation, housing and work in community gardens.

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius signs are troubleshooters and are good at finding and identifying problems. 

They are fighters and truth seekers and will not keep secrets from others.  As adventurers, they are the first to explore new horizons and try new things. They are extremely good in all emergency situations. Preserving the environment is important to these signs, and many will serve in this capacity implementing new programs and ideas. Fire signs take comfort in action.  Many will walk or bike to work. Trading services for supplies and organizing community events helps them cope. Some change will come to all signs, but individuals and communities alike, will learn to draw on our strengths and capacities to survive, serve and rebuild.
