On the question, "what's coming up in the economy" I made a horary chart on October 26, 2009 at 04:16 PM EDT in Durham, NC (78W53, 35N59). For those of you who don't know what horary astrology is, it is a special branch of astrology that gives answers to specific questions based on the time the questions come up. Done correctly, horary has about a 98% rate of accuracy. Not many people know horary as the rules are different and a lot more complicated than the rules for birth charts and progressed charts.
The most outstanding and obvious feature of this chart points to the stock market. Watch the upsurge in the market over a period of about a year followed by a steep decline. The drop may happen late in 2010 or early in 2011. The chart gives it 1 year and 4 months at most. I wouldn't wait that long. Investing in the stock market may make you money if you start to pull out by Fall, 2010. I would be very cautious if I were you. The boom/bust that this chart appears to predict looks like it is related to foreign investors. This chart also shows seriously difficult developments coming in six years in the area of foreign relations related to economic issues rooted in the past.
Saturn is in the 7th house of this chart. When Saturn is in the 7th house it throws a shadow over the chart for a generally negative reading. That means that it is wise to heed the warnings.
The most positive things this chart has to show are that the Part of Fortune is in the 4th house and the Moon's final aspect is trine Mercury ruler of the 4th house. That means that real estate is going to start looking up. If you have cash to invest in real estate this is a good time to do it. Real estate looks better than the stock market. The chart suggests that foreign investors are coming to buy up real estate. With real estate looking better, we can think that the banks will come up with new solutions. How much better that is is anyone's guess. It is unlikely real estate will be as hot as it was two years ago for quite some time.
The Part of Fortune in the 4th house and Moon's final aspect to Mercury ruler of the 4th house also say that there will be good fortune in the end, no matter the trouble along the way. The economy will improve over time, not very quickly however.
The chart also points to some behind the scenes trickery, in other words, criminal activity that registers in the general financial picture. Avoid schemes.
Past conditions and events that have a bearing on this horary chart are shown by Pluto behind the Moon. Pluto points to complications and group involvements. The Moon's distance from Pluto, and her position in the chart, indicate that these complications and group involvements were in affect already more than 30 years ago. This means that the conditions we are in, and what is coming are related to complicated matters that are very deep rooted and very old.
Will the economy get better? The Moon's final aspect says yes. But heed the warnings. The Moon's general run of aspects that are forming in this chart are good. This gives us cause for encouragement. Neptune who rules the 1st house of this chart is currently in Aquarius. It will enter Pisces in February, 2012 timing a new developments in the public outlook, as seen by this chart.
