Fourth Of July Holiday Violences
Sunday's subscriber-direct e-mail, inserted above, cautioned about violent Mars' continued harms, This information suggests you take care today and tomorrow, especially around fireworks, but too with regard to vehicles. Venus is vehicles, and both Mars and Venus are now in Taurus... was eerily accurate. Step back Drudge Report for having a finger on the pulse -- The Celestial Wheel predicts what's key, not just reports on what has already happened!
The U.S. was a target here for, the U.S. chart is running malefics Mars with Rahu in its planetary cycles (Dasas) this summer, which is very dangerous. (The June 26 In-depth Celestial Wheel, Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine)
Of course, North Korea's North Korea’s July 4th fireworks show, firing 7 missiles into the Pacific, was about the U.S.
Charter subscriber M.L in Maryland sent some of these links and added, Here's another Mars casualty. Next door neighbor just told me her 30 year old son broke his hand in 3 places in a boating accident last night.
This astrologer, knowing well Sunday morning was the most risky for Mars aspecting the Moon, took a scooter ride to the grocery store for creamer, turning onto the highway. Not seeing an onrushing car hidden by a huge truck, he nearly got creamed. Another 10 feet, and there wouldn't be another Celestial Wheel. Yet, it was awareness of the risk that promoted the needed quick reaction.
Now, Begin Benefiting From The Summer Sunshine
Mars is strong again, as are Venus and Mercury. Jupiter is weakly retrograde but not harmful, and Saturn is patiently waiting to inflict his damages beginning August 7. So, again, take this lull in planetary disruptions to gets things done. This was explained in the The June 26 In-depth Celestial Wheel, Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine, which closed by stating, pay attention to this reasonably favorable period until August 7 to do your lifestyle remodeling. You'll bed glad you did. Making your home a refuge from the world is a good starting plan.
A Second Reminder About Gas Prices
Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine also predicted oil and gas prices will move up again this fall, especially in early October when destructive Mars will collide with Ketu -- the tail-of-the-dragon eclipse point that symbolizes gas and oil.
So, after Saturn's August 7 to September 9 scorched earth game, there will not be a long reprieve from further harms -- especially if governments of oil producing countries are disturbed, or even fall. Too, August begins the peak hurricane Atlantic hurricane season, which last year harmed oil production when a hurricane hit Houston refineries.
The below timeline, done in Photoshop, gives you an easy visual to see when these celestial weather events occur. Mars long transit through Cancer will be discussed in the next section.
Summer 2009 through Spring 2010 Timeline
Yet Another Millennium Contraction Hit - October To May
These summer/fall transit ills are timing indictors for the periods of economic loss during the long Millennium Contraction -- which will likely endure until 2015. Even during the Great Depression, there were sometimes recoveries, but the long term trajectory was down until World World II.
Mars colliding with Ketu in Cancer October 9 marks the beginning of a very long over 8 month transit through this sensitive sign -- Until May 26. This results because Mars goes retrograde from December 20, 2009 to March 10, 2010, keeping it in Cancer much longer. It's like driving to part way to a destination, returning home for something you forgot and then starting the trip again than it's usual two months. Mars's last retrograde was November 15, 2007 until April 28, 2008, and it was the culprit in Bear Stearns collapse. As the first failure of a major financial firm, it marked the beginning of the Millennium Contraction. See the March 28, 2008 Celestial Wheel, the section, What Happened March 14?)
Cancer is Mars' fallen sign, which aggravates him. The fourth house of the natural zodiac, indicating global conditions. The fourth is the home, giving a hint to harms -- further real estate losses and violences. Cancer is the eighth house in the U.S. chart, which is turmoil, even catastrophe. So, expect the fall of 2009 through the spring of 2010 will bring further karmic reckoning with the excesses of the Second Gilded Age.
The Celestial Wheel will offer more detailed forecasting as to This Mars transit's dates and harms. This entry is only an early heads-up for your to plan your life -- and especially encourages you to take advantage of this summer's sunshine opportunity to make hay. This is a generalized prediction, of course, for it's a transit prediction, weather on the river of life. Your own chart's planetary cycles (Dasas) are the underlying karma -- your journey on the river of life.
The Celestial Wheel Has Another Birthday
Keep in mind that as The Celestial Wheel has accurately predicted events and trends now for 7 years, the same astrologer can help you plan a route ahead on your karmic path. Yes, The Celestial Wheel began in July 2002! Western pop astrology is psychological, not predictive as Vedic is, and this astrologer offers a proven track record of economic forecasting meshed with business background in his client consultation work. Your financial future rests upon national and global economic trends as well as your own personal karmas. And we've all seen traditional advisors have failed us -- bankers, stock brokers, real estate agents and insurance agents. See VedicpredicgtiveAstrology.com for services and fees, the latter reduced last February to 1999 pricing.
Continuing and new clients have begun straggling in seeking financial advice. However, sometimes it's already late in the game -- like ladies who wouldn't have relationship compatibilities done for a new romances until after they slept with the guys, because they didn't want to spoil the opportunities. Then, the e-mails, sometimes calls, would begin -- It's not working out, the new guy cheated on me... (As a result, this astrologer now refers compatibility analysis to a Vedic heart specialist on that web site.)
Don't Blame The Weatherman
Weathermen and ladies are always so congenial on TV. One reason is that they, like everyone else, don't want to be disliked. Too, advertisers want people to watch the weather news, not be turned off by it. Primary though is that weather people are just trying to help with their specialized knowledge. They don't watch the radar screens and video reports with vicious delight at the destructions from storms, floods...
Similarly, the Celestial Wheel only reads the Vedic chart screens and is not gloomy for any other purpose than to give warnings of the very tough challenges ahead we're experiencing during the Millennium Contraction. Too, whenever there is a lull in the planetary clashes, this astrologer readily gives those alerts and encouragements to take advantage of opportunity. So, don't blame the astrologer. He can't move the planets around for you any more than a meteorologist can wave off an approaching tornado or thunderstorm. All we both do is give cautions about bad weather and encouragements for fair skies.
The Eclipses Are Coming! The Eclipses Are Coming!
The June 26 In-depth forecast, Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine, touched upon this summer's Triple Eclipse.
Apparently some Indians are really cranked up about it. This came from subscriber S.R., an American Indian working in India, ...I heard that the last time the 3 eclipses happened it resulted in the Mahabaratha war. And people are saying here that it could be a bad thing for India this time.
My reply chided gently, It seems there's a peculiar twist to the Indian psyche that anything really old is important, and anything within modern history isn't! In other societies, relevance decreases with time.
This comment rings true, for just a single Google search revealed that triple eclipses are not unusual. They are, in fact, common, even ordinary -- just as there is often a single eclipse in the semiannual eclipse season. Triple eclipse not an indicator of catastrophe explains,
The Indians, and untold other others as well over the globe, are ignoring the recent history of triple eclipses because they are caught in powerful ancient history and myth -- fueled by a new sensational Indian book - not unlike the Celestine Prophecy. (People in Sedona actually offer guided tours of the landmarks in that novel!) Exaggerations and falsehoods never bring a good result, only harm.
I added seriously, I do hope the Indians don't overreact to stresses this summer, particularly Saturn's scorched earth actions from Aug. 7 to Sept. 9, and blame it on the triple eclipse. A great deal of harm and suffering could result. Indians have rioted at religious gatherings at minor events, sometimes trampling scores of people. This happened most recently twice less than a year ago, 147 killed, 55 injured in Jodhpur temple stampede. This article also explains the disaster is ... a virtual repeat of the Naina Devi temple stampede in Himachal Pradesh on August 3, in which 162 people were killed...
From a Vedic Astrology view, the blocking effect of an eclipse occurs only when it hits a planet in a Vedic chart within two degrees -- whether person or nation -- just as the astronomical eclipse only shadows a very narrow swath across a portion of the globe. Too, an eclipse is actually a transit - the Moon crossing the Sun is a solar eclipse. Transits of other planets across other planets are similarly very localized. They impact only a few degrees wide.
Below again are the eclipse dates and locations. If any of these eclipses hit a planet in your birthchart within two degrees, it will be eclipsed for about six months. During this interval, the planet's effects will be blocked, and you will experience it's loss of power as a harm.

July 21 total solar eclipse at 5:26 degrees
August 5 partial lunar eclipse sat 19:43 degrees Capricorn
The Triple Eclipse True Cause For Concern
The Millennium Contraction consists of both delveraging and downsizing in virtually every household, community and business in the U.S. These impacts reverberate through the global economy to the entire globe. Everyone is reducing their debt and getting rid of unnecessary and expensive assets. The sixty year (since World War II) consumer age in America is over.
As discussed previously in Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine, this transformation will take many years. It's not a straight line drop, like falling off a cliff, but rather declines followed by periods of recovery, another down, etc. first the private sector, people and businesses, contract. This process will likely take about four years. Then, the Federal government will deleverage -- for it is accumulating huge debt. Look forward to inflation, higher interest rates, higher taxes and lower services. Certainly, overseas adventures like Iraq and Afghanistan will end with a huge miliary being unaffordable.
So far, the Millennium Contraction's contractions have been experienced in the September 2008 Confidence Collapse and this past winter's The Big Blizzzard of 2009. Saturn's August 7 to September 9 scorched earth harms will usher in a third economic convulsion. Part two of that drama will be signaled by Mars' very destructive eight month transit through Cancer. (See the above July 6 entry.)
The stock markets, state and local governments and the economy are already feeling some early pressure from Saturn's scorched earth. Certainly the Obama Administration's honeymoon is over. As we experience the August 7 to September 9 peak harms, the already severely stressed population will be pushed closer to the edge. With savings gone, credit cards maxed out, more jobs being lost, those employed working fewer hours and foreclosures rising like a hurricanes' tide, panic can ensue. Keep in mind too the prediction that governments will fall next month and September, and that will further destabilize.
Allowing things like the triple eclipse to further alarm is wrong and dangerous. As stated, panic can ensue. Instead, we all must pay attention changing circumstances in our lives, make long term plans with many hard choices and focus our intention upon advancing our personal transformations. Don't give in to fear and sensationalism in the media, but rather look ahead with hope for a better balanced and more sustainable society.
We all have a part to play. This astrologer publishes Celestial Whee to inform and guide you through the Millennium Contraction. And, today marks the completion of revamping the business consultations services on VedicPredictiveAstrology.com -- including more affordable fees, targeted examples and clients accolades. Take a look. With The Celestial Wheel's predictive accuracy, well, astrology is certainly better than your favorite banker, stock broker, realtor, insurance salesman...! and don't panic.

Lastly, here's an excellent article about the Sun, to help you understand it's meanings as the ego and the soul. When it is eclipsed, the Sun's outer light is blocked but the inner light can illuminate. During an eclipse, its best to be quiet and be receptive. Astronomically this fits, for when the Sun is eclipsed the skies darken and the stars are revealed.

Eclipse Results -- So Far
The July 19 Celestial Wheel (above) listed public figures hit by the July 21 solar eclipse: Osama Bin Laden, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Condoleeza Rice, G.W. Bush, Rupert Murdoch, Don Imus and Michael Jordan. Keep in mind that eclipses both block and reveal -- and that eclipse effects can be immediate but also last for up to six months.
This is a terrific example of the eclipse revealing effect, U.S. thinks Bin Laden son was killed, not certain. Expect Bin Laden to suffer other setbacks during the next six months. Note, this is the third time Bin Laden's chart has been eclipsed since 9-11. The first eclipse hit was in December 2002. The January 10, 2003 In-depth Forecast, Is Osama Dead Or Alive?, explained The Sun (the body) was transiting Scorpio (death and secrets) and had been eclipsed (blocked) in a total solar eclipse in Scorpio on December 4. Osama didn't die. Instead, he disappeared into Scorpio's hidden depths -- the caves of Afganistan.
The second eclipse hit on Bin Laden's chart was described in the August 27, 2006 In-depth forecast, The September Eclipse Season & Osama Bin Laden. We don't know what impacts that eclipse had because Bin Laden had disappeared in the 202 eclipse.
Rupert Murdoch, the rapacious media baron who created Fox network and gobbled up the London Times and Wall Street Journal, has suffered financial setbacks with the rest of the media. Google Rupert Murdoch and select News to see several recent reports of scandals and financial losses.
G.W. Bush's Saturn, the planet of losses, was hit by this solar eclipse just under two degrees distant -- so a glancing blow. Saturn is very cruel in his chart and rules his 7th house of partnerships and eighth house of secrets. Look for more serious problems for his former administration's officials as the eclipse reveals secrets, especially about torture. Condoleeza Rice is a prime suspect here, for her chart was also eclipsed. Long term, Bush is in a terrible planetary cycle of Mercury that harms his reputation and his mind. The Celestial Wheel has long predicted Bush has experienced a nervous breakdown of some kind. Certainly he's lost his mind in some ways. Bush is also experiencing Sadi Sati -- when Saturn crosses the houses around the Moon, causing loss and suffering. These influences combine for Bush to be discredited, possibly even convicted of crimes and somehow restrained -- prison or house arrest.
Watch for news of radio host Don Imus having more problems and basketball star Michael Jordan experiencing further loss. Jordan's father was murdered several years ago, and he is also recently divorced.
The July 19 Celestial Wheel (above) also noted the U.S. chart recieves a glancing eclipse blow, and the New York Stock Exchange chart is also hit, and this is a very hard blow. Stocks must suffer. The recent run-up in stock prices pushing the DOW over 9000 will not be sustained. It appears this rise resulted from good earnings reports by big banks for the second quarter ending in June. But also, the defeat of the health care bill in Congress must have stimulated stock prices in insurance, drugs, hospitals, health equipment manufacturers and others ripping off American consumers. For a dramatic example of the health care industry's endless greed, see, MDVIP and then read, MDVIP: The New Way For The Rich To Get The Best Medical Care.
In closing, notice that the cataclysm predicted in India by the triple eclipse has not occured, yet. The Celestial Wheel explained this as hype in the above July 16 entry.
The Eclipse And Saturn Together
Saturn's Scorched Earth Game from August 7 to September 9 has been predicted to bring major economic losses, as well as governments falling. See the June 26 In-depth Forecast, Summer/Fall Storms And Summer Sunshine. The Celestial Wheel is not an investment advisory publication, but this Vedic Astroloer does offer Property/business/financial consultations at VedicPredictiveAstrology.com. It's the hot ticket these days. For anyone, it would be a good idea to use this information to review your portfolio and meet with your financial advisor.
One area of apparent major investment risk is annuities. Here's why. Commercial real estate -- office buildings, shopping centers and apartment complexes. -- have lagged behind residential in the real estate decline. The Celestial Wheel's banker* has advised that in August, banks will begin reporting major commercial real estate losses. More importantly, insurance companies love commercial real estate -- often direct ownership -- for these yield the steady long term income needed streams needed by insurance companies to pay life insurance proceeds and the increasingly popular annuities bought by retired people. These annuities are not insured by the Federal government as bank deposits are. As office buildings, shopping centers and apartment complexes empty out, the insurance companies will lose the cash flows needed for annuity payouts. Remember that AIG was an insurance company. Retired people depending upon annuities income will see their lifestyles challenged..
(*Yes, we actually do have a banker! Her impeccable credential are that she's in a small bank and drives a six year old used Buick.)
