Try to drive a race car with the parking brake on.
How fast can you go?

August finds most of us looking forward to cooler weather, the next season, and children going back to school. Uranus is in the fourth house of the Summer Solstice Chart (click to read article) suggesting the unusual, disruptive, and destructive weather we have been having. This will continue throughout the rest of the summer.
An Astrological Trip Around the New Moon in Leo Chart
In Mundane Astrology the first, fourth, seventh and tenth houses are most important, with the tenth house having a special reference to the ruler of the country, the government in power, and the national honor and reputation of the country.
New Moon in the tenth house, sextile Mars and Saturn
When a lunation occurs in the tenth, it is favorable unless afflicted by aspects to Mars, Saturn, or the outer planets. With a sextile to Mars and Saturn there is opportunity for the Obama administration to exert greater power, but this does not garner him any popularity.
The last exact aspect the Moon makes before entering the zodiac sign of Virgo is the sextile with Mars at 1:54 pm – meaning, the last hours of the trading day of the NYSE the Moon will be Void of Course. The market becomes unpredictable during a Void of Course Moon. Anything can happen.
Mars is conjunct Saturn in the twelfth house – Very problematic.
This conjunction occurs every two years, often twice in the same sign. The last Mars-Saturn conjunction took place at 0° Libra. On the positive side, personally, this astrological energy provides self discipline and diplomacy, negatively it is frustrated energy that builds and finally explodes. In mundane astrology it suggests serious national difficulties and discontent, exerting its strongest influence on countries ruled by the sign – in this case, Libra. Modern mundane astrology ascribes China to Libra.
Riots, crimes, murders and outrages increase. The government in power may act autocratically.
Saturn in the twelfth house, having special reference to conspiracies, secret enemies of the government, hospitals, and prisons, suggests unpopularity of government officials, heads of state, prominent national figures and a loss of national prestige.
Mercury in the ninth house near the MC – An increase in commerce and shipping.
Venus in the ninth house square Uranus and opposing Pluto.
We will experience the energy of this aspect two days BEFORE the New Moon as volatility in the market on the 15th and 16th. Along with the conjunction of Mars and Saturn on the 14th, the last days before the New Moon are filled with tension and stress which will impact the market negatively.
Venus in the ninth house with difficult aspects will produce problems possibly involving foreign trade, taxation of exports/imports and scandals, which may involve diplomats, and important religious and legal persons.
Jupiter in the eighth house – Increase in tax revenues.
Neptune in the fourth house - A fluctuation in political feeling. Failure and discredit to prominent people in government.
Wet weather may relieve areas in need of rain.
Pluto square Uranus - this is the astrological theme of the summer.
Though not exact until September, this waxing aspect is heating things up. In the USA, political parties will officially nominate their presidential candidates at conventions – the Republican National Convention, during week of August 27; the Democratic National convention, during the week of September 3, 2012. With Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs, what we are experiencing is ruthless, negative campaigns and rowdy demonstrations. The 2012 campaign season has candidates themselves throwing punches.
Pluto in the third house – The powerful shift of favored sectors is strong -
Railways, shipping, telephone services, and all matters under the influence of Gemini will become the talk of Wall Street.
Uranus in the fifth house - Volatility in the market, traders do the unexpected.
