[size=150]There is a difference between Business and Financial astrology. Business astrology is more about analyzing the incorporation chart of a company, assisting someone with their planning for their company, or, with their vocational choices. It supports launching new products - when and when not to do things. Financial astrology is more about the larger economic and index cycle, accompanied by many different cycles theories, like the Kondratieff, the Mars Return, Fibonacci. They are similar but different. It could be very helpful to post short, but pointed comments about YOUR findings regarding recent business or financial astrology cycles. The one for me, and, that I am seeing in a lot of business charts is the upcoming alignment of Jupiter Chiron and then the Jupiter Neptune conjunctions occurring in May, July and December 2009. They do suggest hybrid solutions in various industries, since I think Chiron is very much a Hybrid type indicator. Along with the Jupiter Neptune alignment, this could see an increase in Mergers, since mergers seem to be the name of the game when it comes to industry.
For the more financially inclined attendees, of course, the Saturn Uranus opposition is an ongoing alignment taking us all the way out to mid summer 2010. When Saturn Uranus last conjuncted in 1987, we had an economic downturn and, in fact, in a recent and very old archive article I found from 1935, it stated that each time Saturn and Uranus were involved, we had panics or major downturns. However, if we look at the most recent in 1987, the challenge of that time brought some very unusual and out of the box solutions, one of which, believe it or not, was the beginning of distance learning, online training, and video conferencing. It wasn't even happening before 1987!! Your thoughts? Today is January 2, 2009 and this begins the 365 days of 2009.
