[00:00:00] Mitchell Lewis: It’s not about the money, it’s not screwed. Sitting there going, ha ha ha. It’s about having security and being able to put your kids through college and buying a house and taking a vacation and not losing your mind because oh my God, I can’t pay the bills.
[00:00:14] So you use all of these tools. You don’t want to trade stocks. I don’t blame you, frankly. Day trading is nuts.
[00:00:21] I will always give the broad sense of what’s happening in all the markets, just having that alone should help people make decisions about their lives.

[00:02:14] Mitchell Lewis: Thanks, Amanda. It’s so great to be here. I love working with you and with your.
[00:02:19] Amanda Walsh: I know that for so many people, the financial reality is concerning.
[00:02:25] I mean, there’s a lot of uncertainty. It continues to be more uncertain. There’s a lot of variable variables people are talking about, and so having astrology. As a part of your toolkit, I, I think of it as one more data point that you can consider as you’re making your decisions. So you may, you may have financial advisors in your life, you may not.
[00:02:47] You probably have friends talking about what’s happening with the economy or their own money. You have the news and what you hear there. You can add astrology to. Again, that toolkit as a data point that’s helping you to see what’s actually happening. Oh, and then you have yourself, then you have your intuition and you have your own internal guidance, right?
[00:03:11] But you can, you can take all of those different pieces of information and start to parse out, you know, what, what is true? What, what do I think is actually happening? Which, which of these things am I seeing? You know, there’s predictions and then there’s things happening, but then what actually happens, and having astrology is one more of those places where you can look for, for information is really, really helpful.
[00:03:35] I actually have people in my life now that go, you know, here’s the economy is looking this way, Amanda, I know you hang out with a bunch of astrologers. What does the astrology say? You know, what, what’s the astrology saying? And, and, and how can I use that to help me in my life?
Using Astrology for the Economy vs. Stock Market
[00:03:49] Amanda Walsh: So Mitchell, I’d love to use this opportunity to talk about.
[00:03:54] The different ways that financial astrology can help us because it’s not only stocks and trading and the stock market, right. There’s also the economy in general. So can you, can you talk to us about the difference between those two things and then how financial astrology can help us with those two different things?
[00:04:13] Mitchell Lewis: You’re, you’re absolutely right. The stock market is not the as I pointed out, in the, the webinar that we put out last summer in the Depression in the late twenties, after the, there was a depression from 19, 20 to 1922, then the stock market started to explode and ran up to 1929.
[00:04:32] Everybody knows about the crash of 29 and it was devastating cause it wiped out a tremendous amount of money and a lot of faith. Mm. But people who have been trading their whole lives shrugged it off and they bought it back right away. And they thought, well, okay. You know, cleaned it out. And then in 1931, the market crashed almost 10 times deeper.
[00:04:58] In fact, the market went back to where it had gone in a depression in 1907 and it hit that very same point. And then it rallied for the next 6 and a half in the worst depression we’ve ever seen. When the whole world was starving when people could not get jobs, when they were selling apples on the street for 10 cents and begging for change, the stock market goes up.
[00:05:23] And if you had money in the depression and you knew what you were doing, you came out of that depression immensely. People made a fortune during the and as we were saying earlier, before we came on, not everybody wants to trade. Not everybody, you know, has that interest.
[00:05:41] I hear from a lot of people who say to me, I don’t know what to do with my money. And I say to them, I give them some suggestions as to where to put it. And they say, but I don’t, I’m not a trader. Yeah. I don’t wanna go and do this. I don’t wanna buy stocks and bonds. What can I do? Okay, well for one thing, you get yourself a good, what they call, fiduciary investment counselor.
[00:06:03] Mm-hmm. Sherry means that by law they have to put your interest for their own. Something, do something problem, probably don’t. But that is, that is the rule. And if you have a good investment counselor who is age has something to do with this. If they’re too young, they may never have dealt with a bear market.
[00:06:24] if they’re a little bit older, they’ve seen it before. So they say, okay, look, I’ve been here before. I have a lot of friends, of course, wailing about their 401ks right now. Mm-hmm. , uh, there isn’t very much you can do with that. You know, some people have a 401K or an IRA where they’re, they’re allowed to sell the stocks, but leave the money in the account.
[00:06:46] So I will recommend, well, you know what? I would pull out of the stock market for the next and just leave it on the sideline, and then a year later I’ll try to convince them to get, put it back in the stocks. And you avoid this terrible up and down nauseating feeling that you get when you look at, oh my God, I lost 8%, 10%, 12%.
[00:07:09] But again, not everybody’s going to do that. And so when it comes to their financial, their individual financial decisions mm-hmm. , now you’re talking about something different. Now you’re talking more about lifestyle. If the markets are going to be weak for some time as they have been, list. Year and a half we’re in a bear market.
[00:07:31] What do I do? Well, one thing, cash is king. You stash money away, you save and you don’t take that vacation or buy the new car or whatever it might be. You hold onto your money for one thing. It’s going to help you get through the rough times smoother. Also, if you have some money and things start to improve, then you can make some decisions that maybe you’ve been waiting to make.
[00:08:03] For example, the housing market on everybody’s mind right the housing market was hot as can be for last bunching. And I started warning, in fact, even in the, the, webinar that we put out last summer mm-hmm. that the housing market’s gonna cool off. Yeah. One thing, inflation has gone up. So the feds feel the only way to fight inflation is by raising interest rates.
[00:08:28] What happens when you raise interest rates? Mortgages go up. Then not only are you gonna pay more if you buy a new house, but you may not qualify. Hmm. And so all of that is starting to seep into the housing market. And the housing market is in a, is a mess right now, especially in certain cities. Remember, the whole world doesn’t trade at the same time.
[00:08:51] Uh, for example, in the crash of oh eight, you could have bought a house in Las Vegas to $17,000. Now today’s worth million and a half because everybody had overextended. They had bought one too many houses and they were investing in houses cause that was what you did. And they didn’t have astrology.
[00:09:11] Seriously to tell them this is the end of it. Look, it’s the same thing I did when I was on the floor and the.com bubble The the.com bubble hit. They people had a a, a company called dogs.com. It had nothing, didn’t even have a store, but the stock went from 80 cents to $75 are nothing. Okay, that’s astrology.
[00:09:35] Jupiter and Uranus went into Aquarius. Aquarius rules technology. It rules the Nasdaq and these two planets, Uranus rules, Aquarius and Jupiter’s expansion and growth go into Aquarius and these whole, the whole NASDAQ explodes. Then Jupiter left. Astrologists know this other people. Now they may have instincts, like you said before, intuition is very unpowerful.
[00:10:05] There are people down on Wall Street, they’ve never looked at a, an astrology chart in their lives, and they’re worth billions of dollars. But the tool that astrology is, and the, the, extra little edge that it gives you, my God. I mean, I can’t even tell you, man, I’ve been doing financial astrology for decades and the the, you know, as soon as I got a handle on it, I started to make money right away.
[00:10:31] Now, I also had to learn my lesson. You gotta get your, you know, what kicked a few times, . Oh, I’m, everything I do is great. I’ll, I’ll give you one quick example. Silver Silver’s ruled by the moon. It’s a very volatile market. It goes up and down quite a bit. And here I am, I’m making money like crazy and all the, and the counts are going up and I’m saying, oh my God, I’m gonna retire very soon.
[00:10:54] And, and I, and I, I walk in, in the morning on a new moon in Aries. And I said, oh, this, this market’s gonna explode. So the the clearing house, these are the people who put the trades through for you. They call me up on the phone, they say, what do you want to do? You have a pretty big silver position. What do you wanna do?
[00:11:11] Where do you want your stop? If a market, let’s say a stock is trading or a commodity’s trading at 20, and you wanna put a stop and you put the stop in at 16. So if it hits there, you are automatically out and you don’t get crushed. It was arrogant. I said, oh, I’m gonna watch the open. Let’s wait and see what happens.
[00:11:32] It wasn’t a new moon in Aries, it was a new moon eclipse in Aries. I hadn’t been doing this long enough to know. Now I know. And so it opened up, it crashed and I lost most of my account. Wow. In four or five minutes. Wow, what a lesson that was. Right. And I had a backer who was backing me, and, and he is a very wealthy guy.
[00:11:59] And, and he calls me up, he says, what did you do? Your son of a, what did you do? Grab, get out of the trade. I said, leave it, it’s gonna come back. He said, leave this. Just get out. So he get out and he closes. He says to me, he, he closes down the account. He says, I’m putting you out of Oh my God, everything was going along so well.
[00:12:17] Now I’m going home with my tail between my legs and, oh no. Cause you
[00:12:22] Amanda Walsh: didn’t see it was an eclipse and you didn’t know the eclipse would change everything. Wow. Interesting.
[00:12:28] Mitchell Lewis: By the way, just to finish that story. Yeah. Two weeks later, he called me up.
[00:12:32] He said, did you learn your lesson? I said, yeah, always put a stop in. He said, okay, I’m opening up another account for you and you don’t have
[00:12:40] Amanda Walsh: Oh, good. That’s good. I like
[00:12:42] Mitchell Lewis: that. He and I had made him money and he liked to have telling his friends that he had an astrology working
[00:12:46] Amanda Walsh: for
[00:12:47] Nice. Okay, so, so we have, we have how astrology can help us, read the stock market, which is different than the economy,
[00:12:59] Mitchell Lewis: but you can also use astrology to read the economy.
[00:13:02] Amanda Walsh: Right. So let’s talk a little bit more about that, because we started talking about that, at least with the.com bubble burst. We talked about that a little bit.
[00:13:09] We talked a little bit about the housing market.
How Astrology Affects the Economy
[00:13:11] Amanda Walsh: How, how does astrology in general help us with the economy?
[00:13:17] Mitchell Lewis: Okay. We are in a period this year, 2023 is quite a remarkable year. Ascar Jupiter Exchange signs. It’s now areas. Saturn is about to move into, Pisces in March, and Pluto is about to enter Its long, long journey through Aquarius.
[00:13:38] Each of these will have an effect on our personal lives, on our personal charts, and on the world. Just like when Mars was retrograde for quite a bunch of months and it starts to go direct in. A lot of people want me to write articles for them. So would you write about, so I did and I wrote for the N C G R and some of the other groups and I said, well, for one thing, when Mars is in retrograde, historically, whoever is the aggressor loses.
[00:14:10] This is true to the ancient Greeks. I mean, I’ve gone back and done all this kind of homework cuz I’m alluding, and I said, look at what’s happened to Russia in Ukraine. They’re getting crushed here and they’re being pushed out here and they’re being pushed out there. I said, but when Mars goes direct, you’re going to see.
[00:14:29] An escalation in the war. Hmm. That’s exactly what has happened. Russia is preparing a whole new group of troops. The Europeans are giving the Ukrainians tanks, it’s going to explode. Hmm. So when it comes to the finances of the world, now Jupiter going into Aries, I said I believed wood as it has historically be bullish for the market.
[00:14:55] That doesn’t mean we are gonna have a bull market for the next year, but I expected the stock market to go up. Since it went in there. The stock market has been exploding the last two weeks. Really just unbelievable. 2, 3, 400 points a day and it’s really doing great. Is that going to continue? Well, time will tell.
[00:15:18] And again, you need to know how to trade. But that’s one thing. We have what I believe is a bottom being put into the spare market. . It doesn’t mean it’s not gonna go down and back up and down and back up. That’s the nature of the beast. That’s what it does. You markets move. However, there is growth in certain, segments and there’s been, shrinkage in others.
[00:15:44] For example, Saturn’s been in Aquarius. It’s getting ready to go into Pisces, Aquarius, like I said earlier, rules, technological What have the tech stocks been doing in the last two and a half years with Saturn? Aquarius? They’re getting crushed. Apple is doing better than the others. It’s only down 25%.
[00:16:05] Tesla’s down 63%. This is, you know, a tremendous amount of money has been lost in on paper with Saturn being the planet of restriction, traveling through the tech stocks. I knew, I told people, I warned them, I said, stay away from the techs. Mm-hmm. You want to trade, you feel like you gotta buy or short the tech stocks.
[00:16:26] That means you’re selling what you don’t own. You are allowed to do that in the
[00:16:30] Amanda Walsh: stock market. Do you think Saturn moving into Pisces will then alleviate some of the pressure on the tech stocks? Yes.
[00:16:37] Mitchell Lewis: Then you, but where will add pressure? Housing
[00:16:41] Amanda Walsh: market. Okay, so Saturn moving into Pisces, which is happening in March, and then Saturn will be in Pisces for two and a half years-ish.
[00:16:49] Right. You’re seeing then the housing market get squeezed or restricted during that time. Why? Why are you saying Pisces is related to the housing market?
[00:17:01] Mitchell Lewis: Each of the signs has a certain When the housing market bubble collapsed . In 2005, I also, not to blow my own horn, but I predicted that on coast to coast and I predicted maybe I was not coast to coast here, I don’t remember.
[00:17:16] But in lectures, all over the place and, and in my writing, because for two and a half years, Saturn had been in cancer, which is the opposite sign of what it rules Capricorn, we are opposites. Mm-hmm. . And then it moved into Leo and began to oppose Neptune, which rules Pisces.
[00:17:40] Neptune is by nature a not interested in material things. Now there are plenty of Pisces who are wealthy. It’s not a matter of that, but the energy of Pisces in Neptune is much more involved and interested in spiritual things. In inner growth. And so very often when Neptune opposes or squares or conjunct the sun, we have a very bad few days in, stock market.
[00:18:11] So what happened was Saturns, Leo, and the very week July, 2005 at Saturn left cancer, the top of the housing bubble happened. And it starts to come off after years of rising. How many times, Amanda, I have seen the exactitude of these transits hit and I say to myself, it makes me laugh. Yeah. I say, I expected, but this is crazy.
[00:18:39] Same thing happened, mind
[00:18:40] Amanda Walsh: blowing every time, isn’t it?
[00:18:42] Mitchell Lewis: So Saturn goes into Leo and it begins to oppose Neptune. Neptune dissolved Saturn. Mm. Saturn rules. Banking, housing market. Okay. And what happened was the mortgage, tobacco took place where people, banks were giving you a mortgage. You make $30,000 a year. They were selling your house for $750,000. Yes. Did you live to be 500?
[00:19:14] You couldn’t pay off that house. Yes. Then they were wrapping those up and calling them securities and selling them as investments to Italy and Spain and Portugal and Iceland and Ireland. and of course to Americans as well. And it collapsed the entire world economy. Mm. We came this close to a second Great depression.
[00:19:37] Hmm. It was policies that were put in place by the government and the strength of the US dollar and bonds that saved the world, And so that’s an example of Neptune doing its job, which is to take away, you know, you go through a a, a Neptune transit very often. You lose things, you lose money, you lose stuff.
[00:20:01] People will leave your life. Why? Cuz you have other lessons to learn. Hmm. Now with Saturn going into Neptune ruled Pisces, We’re already seeing the decline of the housing market, and I believe, I don’t think the housing market’s gonna collapse like it did in You have to take into account fundamentals, things that are happening in the world.
[00:20:29] Why are we having such a bear market while there’s inflation? Why are we having inflation? Well, covid, the war in Ukraine, price of oil goes up. I cover all of the different periods of inflation that we’ve had since the turn of the 20th century in that, July, forecast the July, webinar. Now what you need to do is you say, okay, let’s say Mitchell’s right?
[00:20:53] The housing market is going to be weak. Well, how weak is it gonna be? And what about my city and what do I do if I wanna buy a house or sell a house? What’s a good time to do that? Then you have to do the homework. Look, a lot of people want astrology to go poof, and it’s all done. Wave a magic wand over my chart and everything’s Doesn’t work that way. It’s a tool you need to use.
Your Personal Relationship to the Economy & Finances
[00:21:16] Amanda Walsh: So, Mitchell, would you, when you’re saying do the homework, would you look at your individual natal chart and compare it against the energy of Saturn and Pisces, for example? Or would you look at the chart of your city or town for, or like how would you do that?
[00:21:36] Mitchell Lewis: That’s a good question. There are different ways that, that you need to, different things you need to consider. I would say 75% of the time your stock will go up or down based on whether the s and p goes up or down. S and P is 500 stocks and the New York Stock Exchange and the Dow and the Nasdaq, they move with the collective.
[00:22:02] The individual. Now, your individual chart has a lot to do with what you should be doing with your finances. No question about it. Hmm. This is what I, I, I talk to many people through the year, every year about their personal You wanna buy a house? Okay. How much money do you have? How much do you wanna spend on the house?
[00:22:25] Are you going to spend too much because you want a bigger place than your brother or your friend or whatever? Mm-hmm. . And then are you going to leave yourself an lurch if the property value goes down and you can’t refinance? Well, then I look at the individual’s chart and I say, well, well, who is this person?
[00:22:43] What are they? How do they look at things? What are their values? What’s important to them? Sometimes somebody will come to me for financial advice and they’ll give them financial advice, and they’ll call me back for another reading. Month later, I’ll say, okay, whatever it is. Well, they’re getting divorced.
[00:23:01] They didn’t see it. If I’m not looking for it, I can’t predict that. If they talk to me about their marriage or they took, there’s so much to cover in a meeting, you can’t do it. Or they lost their job or whatever the situation is. And so we have to then look at their financial situation differently.
[00:23:21] I have no problem with changing my mind or with reviewing a chart. When circumstances change, that’s when people tend to come to astrologers. Very rarely do people come to astrologers cuz things are going too well. . Right. . So you look at the individual, your individual chart and your individual circumstances.
[00:23:45] My mother died. I’ve got an inheritance. It’s sitting in a bank. It’s not doing anything. What should I do with the money? Okay. That’s what we talk about. I wanna buy a house, but I’m living in a house now. I need to sell that first. Well, with a weak housing market, you may have a hard time selling your house.
[00:24:02] Mm. And you may have to sell it at a much lower price than you had planned on. Ah, so it might take a little longer for you to be able to buy that house up the street that you have your eye on. Okay. That’s when the individual stuff Yes. Kicks in and, and connects with the collective.
[00:24:20] Amanda Walsh: Right. Okay. That makes sense.
[00:24:21] So we, we can tell from the global astrology, like the global astrology being, for example, Saturn moving into Pisces. That’s for everybody. That’s not an individual thing happening. That’s for all of us. So that’s happening and we can see from that, that probably the housing market is going to weaken under that energetic influence.
[00:24:43] Mitchell Lewis: I think it will be an extended period of weakness, but not necessarily an extended
[00:24:47] Amanda Walsh: period, the whole two and a half years. Uh,
[00:24:49] Mitchell Lewis: it’ll be ups and downs.
[00:24:50] Amanda Walsh: Okay. All right. So then within that, if you’re trying to make decisions about what to do with your money during this weekend housing market, under this astrological influence, then you would wanna consult your personal situation.
[00:25:05] You would wanna consult your chart and what your chart says about your personal financial. Outlook, right? Absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. Okay. And this, these are the kinds of things that we’re covering in this webinar series, so that we’re gonna be talking about the global transits that are affecting everybody.
[00:25:26] You’re going Mitchell in and selecting certain stocks and, and different companies or sectors that actually look like sectors,
[00:25:34] Mitchell Lewis: is what I wanna, I wanna focus on a little
[00:25:36] Amanda Walsh: more Right. Sectors. So, so we are, we talked about tech, we talked about, what other things did we talk about today?
[00:25:42] Mitchell Lewis: Well, I mean, there’s the energy sector, there’s the materials, there’s utilities, there’s, right. Uh, many And, and housing, right? And, and for example, with the housing market, maybe you want to, get a, a purchase. Some, some people wanna buy a second house for income or whatever it might be, right? Cause it’s a good time to do it.
[00:26:04] Yeah. You know, if it depends also on, among other things, your age. Hmm. If you’re 40, you’ll invest one way. If you’re 70, you should be investing a different way.
[00:26:19] Amanda Walsh: Well, and like you brought up before, if you’re dependent on something else to sell quickly and at a high price, y that might be an issue because of what’s happening right now.
[00:26:30] Right. Okay. So we, we are talking housing market.
Inflation & Rising Costs
[00:26:33] Amanda Walsh: I know that economically people are also concerned, and I’m not asking you to give answers here, but, but how can astrology help us when we’re looking at things like inflation or the rising costs of food? You know, the,
[00:26:46] Mitchell Lewis: so one thing, Amanda, in the, in the July webinar mm-hmm.
[00:26:50] I told you, I told our audience, inflation is temporary. Yeah. It’s already gone down from almost 9% to six.
[00:27:02] Amanda Walsh: You know what’s amazing about when you did that, Mitchell, is that that was at a, a period of, of heightened hysteria. And that was one of the reasons why I invited you on to do that webinar with us is because I, I could sense and feel in myself there was this, this panic that was happening, that things are completely falling apart and we’re in a, you know, the inflation’s just gonna keep going up and up and up and up and, you know, right.
[00:27:27] People aren’t gonna be able to feed their families. And I know for some people that may be true, but it wasn’t at the level that the media and that, you know, just sort of the collective. Conversation was at it, it didn’t happen that way. And you were already looking at the astrology saying, this isn’t, this isn’t, this has a top, and it’s not going to just continue rising outta control.
[00:27:50] This will get contained. And so the message was really grounding for all of us at the time. And that’s, again, one of the gifts of astrology, especially as we look at our finances, is like, what is hype? What is, what is, you know, uh, fear mongering and what, what does the astrology say about what’s actually happening and what’s actually gonna
[00:28:10] Mitchell Lewis: happen?
[00:28:11] Well, that’s, that’s exactly what I try and do, not just with finances, but people come to me hysterical. Cause their lives are falling apart and Yep. After an hour and a half reading or so, Yeah. Calm down. Right? And I say to him, now, take a long walk by the river. Don’t throw yourself in . It’s gonna be fine.
[00:28:30] You’re gonna get through this. Yeah. And it does give people a great deal of solace, but again, you have to be accurate. Mm-hmm. just telling everybody, if everything’s wonderful, being a Pollyanna, and then six months later they’re in worse shape. That’s not doing anybody any good.
[00:28:46] Amanda Walsh: No, no.
[00:28:47] Mitchell Lewis: So, so with the markets the ingress of these three planets into the new signs, Jupiter’s doing its thing. Stocks are rising, they’re gonna be ups and downs, but the stocks are rising and some of them are doing just remarkably, as Saturn gets ready to leave Aquarius, the tech stocks are going to recover.
[00:29:11] So where the last couple of years, equities were the last place you wanted to put your now. I feel, it’s just my opinion, but using the tools that I have, that the stocks are starting to look very attractive again. And I believe, I, I, I don’t chase a dog, I keep it on a leash. Mm-hmm. , I believe that if you invest slowly and carefully again, it, it’s, you know, you have to use common sense.
[00:29:44] And the old saying, common sense is not that common. I’m buying stocks, I’m buying a little here, a little there. I like a company. I’ll buy a bunch, I’ll take a look, it goes upward. Whatever it’s doing, I like it. I’ll buy a little bit more and if I don’t like what it’s doing, I’ll sell it. If I lose a small amount, that’s part of the game.
[00:30:04] Now again, not everybody out there wants to buy and sell stocks. That’s okay. Inflation is being tamed worldwide. It’s much less than it was. For one thing, energy prices, which is what spikes inflation. Almost always. Europe has cut itself off from Russian gas and they’ve done it rather successfully. And so the price of oil and gas have been going down for months.
[00:30:38] At the peak, I think a gallon of gas here was almost $6 a gallon. Now it’s around.
[00:30:45] Amanda Walsh: Hasn’t recovered like that in Hawaii. I wish it had . We’re, we’re still
[00:30:50] Mitchell Lewis: close to $6. But Hawaii is a different case. Remember, you gotta ship everything in. Right. You can’t drive a truck to Hawaii. Right. And that’s, and there are built-in costs.
[00:31:00] It’s one of the reasons why Hawaii is such a unexpensive
[00:31:05] Amanda Walsh: The cost of living in paradise,
[00:31:07] Mitchell Lewis: eh, but you got the birds
[00:31:10] Amanda Walsh: and the flowers. Yeah. Ok. Sorry. Sorry. I, I digress. Okay. So,
[00:31:15] Mitchell Lewis: so, alright. So, uh, now could something change geopolitically or in some other way? Absolutely. Russia blows up, you know, the Paris.
[00:31:27] Okay. Then all bets are off. Something happens, politically in the US or in in the world events, and it changes the dynamics of the economy. Well then you have to read. Design it. But as things stand now, inflation has been tamed. They will continue to tame it. Unfortunately, the price of taming inflation means a lot of people lose their jobs.
[00:31:55] Um, interest rates continue to go up, which is a mixed blessing. For many years, buying bonds was a waste of time. Now the two year bonds are paying almost four and a half percent. That’s a great return. It’s not what you’re gonna get in a bull star, a stock market, but it’s keeping up with inflation. At least it’s protecting your money, and it’s bringing in passive income.
[00:32:22] And it’s not a long term. You don’t have to buy a 30 year bond. You buy a two year bond, you can buy a three month bond and you get some. , every single quarter, you’re gonna get money put into your account. Then when things settle down and everything feels good, and it looks like there’s a bull market, you sell the bonds and you buy the stocks.
[00:32:43] Amanda Walsh: we have Jupiter going to Aries. Saturn into Pisces. We’ve talked about both those a little bit and Pluto and Aquarius, and I know you cover these at more length in the first quarter financial astrology webinar that we’ve already released. That is available to any of you. If you decide you wanna join the whole year and get a quarterly financial outlook update from Mitchell each quarter, then you can actually pay for the whole year at once and get one of the quarters free, which is an awesome deal.
[00:33:14] But if you just wanna try it out and see if you like it and just kind of do it quarter by quarter, you also can do that. So that’s available for you right now at
[00:33:22] Amanda Walsh: astrologyhub.com/Outlook. And you can learn more about the quarterly financial astrology webinar series that Mitchell is producing for us. Again, the reason this was a response from us to what is keeping us up at night, you know, what it, what are people really concerned about?
[00:33:41] And obviously the economy, your, your financial security and the way that things are going is of utmost concern for most people. And so we wanted to just bring astrology in again as another tool, another perspective, another data point that you can lean on as you’re making decisions about your, your life.
[00:34:02] Mitchell Lewis: put it in a lot of people like to be. It gives them something to do. Oh, I hear. And the price of eggs. If I read one more thing on Facebook about the price of eggs, I understand price of eggs are high. I don’t happen to like eggs, but that’s besides . Eventually they’re going to come back down.
[00:34:22] There are reasons why eggs went up. There are, there’s avian flu in different parts of the world. There’s a shortage of chickens. Uh, reminds me of the old joke about the farmer who invents a four-legged chicken and the reporter comes and says, how do they taste the pharmacist? I don’t know. I haven’t caught one yet.
[00:34:43] Amanda Walsh: That’s a
[00:34:43] Mitchell Lewis: good one, Mitchell. So, so people like to have something to rant raise for that. I, I understand. We all do. I like it. Yeah. But put it in perspective. The world isn’t coming to an end. We, the people are always having babies. Uh, you know, the, it’s, it’s going, we’re gonna keep going on for a long time.
[00:35:05] There are real changes happening. Pluto going into Aquarius, which we were, I think you were about to bring up. Yeah. Pluto rules energy. It rules oil, natural gas and coal. There are astrologers out there who will disagree with me and, uh, not to be arrogant, but they will. I spent decade studying the oil markets and the history of it, and I, I bring that up in the first webinar we have, just to show you.
[00:35:36] Here’s when Saturn, when it went, when Pluto went into Aquarius, I mean into Sagittarius, expansive, and it runs up. Here’s when it goes into Capricorn and it collapses. Here’s when it conjuncts Saturn and it goes to below zero in 2020. The price of oil went to below zero. It cost the oil companies more money to hold the oil than it was worth.
[00:35:59] They were ta saying to people, take it. Please. Now, had you bought the oil futures, then she’d be a very happy camper today cuz it ran up to over a hundred dollars. Wow. These are the kind of trades you wait for your entire life. If you had one or two a year, oh my God. Last year with the three stocks that I, over the last two years, a m C and, and, uh, C G C, which is a marijuana company out of Canada.
[00:36:27] Forget the other one right offhand. They, they, they were tremendous trades and I was very happy. And you don’t get piggy I told you before, there’s an old saying on Wall Street, bulls make money. Bears make money, pigs get slaughtered. Mm-hmm. You take the money off the table, you sell three quarters of it, you keep a little on it, whatever it is, you do that over and over and over again.
[00:36:50] You make a lot of money and you have your security. It’s not about the money, it’s not screwed. Sitting there going, ha ha ha. It’s about having security and being able to put your kids through college and buying a house and taking a vacation and not losing your mind because oh my God, I can’t pay the bills.
[00:37:09] So you use all of these tools. You don’t want to trade stocks. I don’t blame you, frankly. Day trading is nuts. That’s what I did for years in the commodities exchange. Oh my God, I saw people have nervous breakdowns, heart attacks. It’s, it’s nuts.
[00:37:23] Amanda Walsh: Definitely not for everyone. Like I know I will never be a day trader, and I’m sure there’s a lot of people in our audience who feel the same way.
[00:37:29] We just wanna use the astrology a as a, place of input for, for what’s happening,
Mitchell’s Financial Perspective
[00:37:34] Mitchell Lewis: I will always give the broad sense of what’s happening in all the markets, including bonds and the dollar and the international and all this other stuff.
[00:37:46] Then we will look at individual sectors or stocks and if I see something very attractive, I will carefully, you know, offer that. But just having that alone should help people make decisions about their lives. I think it’s time for me to retire. I’m 65, 7, 68, whatever it is. What do you think?
[00:38:10] Well, I have to look at your chart. I have to look at what your investments are. I don’t wanna know your bank account numbers or anything like that. I wanna know where, you know, why I got a half million dollars in this. I got 400,000 over there. I got whatever it is. Okay. What is your cost of living? What do you, what do you, what are your goals?
[00:38:29] What do you wanna do for the rest of If you take too much out every year, you’ve gotta be broke when you’re 81 to take out just enough. And that’s what you need, a financial advisor who sets up estate planning
[00:38:43] Amanda Walsh: So Mitchell, you’re basically, we’re gonna be getting guidance again that we can apply collectively, that we, where we’re watching the, the, the cosmic tides and how those are affecting the financial, our financial reality here on earth.
[00:38:57] And, and if you
[00:38:58] Mitchell Lewis: want, how they’re affecting you individually. Yes.
[00:39:01] Amanda Walsh: And then if you want, how they’re affecting you individually. And you’re gonna continue to give us insights into how to look at our own charts and, interpret our charts from a financial astrology lens or angle.
[00:39:15] Mitchell Lewis: Yes. Very often some of these issues require a personal Yes.
[00:39:21] Uh, session just to book off Yes. But I, and I’m also going to discuss, cuz people, you know, many of your, of your followers study astrology and they know, quite a bit about it. Mm-hmm. . So I’m going to show what makes a day trader. What makes a long-term position trader. Now people say to me, based on my chart, what stocks should I buy?
[00:39:43] That’s, that’s silly. Mm-hmm. , it’s just, you know, you buy the stocks that go up and you sell the ones that go down . But it does have a lot to do with how they trade.
[00:39:54] Amanda Walsh: Well, Mitchell, we are really looking forward to having your guidance. All year long so that people can continue to tune in every quarter, get a lay of the land, get some idea of the direction of both the markets and the economy. Cuz we’ve established that those are two different things and they’re not always going in the same direction.
[00:40:16] So giving, giving us some insights into, the direction that those two things are going in. Also, if there’s any specific things that are really standing out that we need to be aware of. Bringing our awareness to those things and then also continuing to teach us how to take some of these tools and apply them ourselves and or know when we’ve hit that limit.
[00:40:37] And it’s time for a reading with a professional that can help us look at our chart and really understand it.
[00:40:43] Amanda Walsh: So, Mitchell, I am so grateful that you’re here with us and really looking forward to all of the ways that we get to share your wisdom with our community this year.
[00:40:52] Mitchell Lewis: If I love working with you, I love your team.

[00:41:08] Amanda Walsh: I love hearing that. I love when the astrologers reflect that about the community because I agree, we have amazing people out there and just real, earnest, sincere curiosity about how to live a better life.
[00:41:23] And of course, our financial reality is a part of that. So just knowing that astrology can help us in that way too is just amazing.
[00:41:32] Mitchell Lewis: My goal is to help. That’s why I became an astrologer to begin , I, I, I simply, I want to help people. It’s, it’s just part of my nature. And so anything that I can do to help, but especially people that I’m friends with and I make So, you know, it wouldn’t be a terrible thing if we found a couple of good investments for you. Ah, I would love
[00:41:53] Amanda Walsh: that. I could, I would be a great, um, case study for you.
[00:41:57] So my dad listened to the first quarterly financial outlook and he said, I am listening to Michael Lewis. Amazing stuff. A classic Manhattan man, and so smart. Mm-hmm. . I think your brothers would love this. And what’s interesting about that is none of my brothers are into astrology. My dad really doesn’t know much about astrology either.
[00:42:17] But this for them is super fascinating that there could be other influences that are affecting their, their work, their jobs, their, their, uh, investments, you know, all those things.

Affecting your finances.

I think that astrology is a good tool to have at any time.
[00:45:02] A lot of people want to know what can I do to improve my financial world? What can I do to improve my retirement? Believe me, I made money. I knew nothing, nothing about Wall Street commodities or anything else. And because of astrology, my very first trade found the top of the cotton market, and I made thousands of dollars within two weeks of going on the floor.
[00:45:27] 2023 is a particularly volatile year with three of the major planets changing signs. What I hope people get out of this webinar, Some useful tools by the end of the series.
