“The prophecies made by Christeen Skinner are weirdly accurate. In 2004 she told the Sunday Express that between 2005 and 2011 ‘there will be an aspect between Saturn and Uranus not seen since the Great Depression of 1930-1931’. More specifically, she predicted that ‘the change in the cycle of Pluto in 2008 will bring about a collapse in the property market’.”

“The majority of the business community does not access this incredibly helpful [astrological] information, and are often taken unawares by events political and financial. This book is groundbreaking, as it bridges this gulf and makes this information readable and understandable by all. Using the information that The Financial Universe provides will support a smoother ride in the forthcoming decade and beyond. The book also deals with sun-spot activity, and gives very user-friendly interpretations.”
Ms Pemos Theodore, Star ConsultingWriting in ISAR International Astrologer
“The book deals specifically with using planetary bodies to predict cycles in the marketplace, both positive and negative. Offering suggestions and warnings that potentially reverberate up through the year 2020, The Financial Universe even contemplates the astrological sign of America as a nation, and considers the implications of this birth sign on the future of American finances as a whole as surely as what this means for one’s private investments.”
The Midwest Book Review
The noted British astrologer, Christeen Skinner, has written a book for the astrologer who is interested in learning how to use astrology when considering the stock market, but who has been daunted by the more technical books on the subject. If you know the basics of astrology, this book will teach you to understand the concepts of astro-trading.
The book starts with a chapter on solar cycles, what they are, why they are important, and how they affect weather and the financial cycles. Traders know that the 11.2-year sunspot cycle corresponds to the Dow Jones cycles. The Sun’s energy and its solar flares has a big effect on us and the current output is at an unexpected low. Christeen explains the potential problems of this fact.
Christeen then examines the charts of ten worst market crashes in 20th century. She shows the astrology of the biggest one day gains and losses. There is a chapter on currencies and one on commodities. She gives advice on real estate, showing the cycles and astrology of tracking the market’s highs and lows, and when is the best time to sell your house. She shows you how to look at your own chart with an eye to seeing if you would make a good trader. The book ends with an overview of the years 2017 – 2024 describing the big planetary activity that is to come.
At times reading this book is like reading a very interesting history book. Her research is spot on. She shows us how a financial astrologer thinks about the planets and their cycles. She points out important degrees such as 19 Cancer -Capricorn and 17 Virgo-Pisces and what happens to Wall Street when they are activated. She brings to our attention that the asteroid Vesta shows up in charts of traders and big market events.
There is a section that describes what is happening now as Saturn approaches the Galactic Center. She offers predictions for the next few years as Pluto transits over the dangerous degree of 19 Capricorn and Saturn comes up to join him.
“Saturn demands that issues are addressed there and then. Austerity and hardship are nearly inevitable. The combination of Saturn with Pluto demands reassessment of resources, hard pruning, and sets the task of living on a shoestring.”
She speculates on the 2020 Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in 0 degrees of Aquarius.
All this information is given with an eye towards investing and securing one’s money since the financial future has a grim feel to it with Pluto continuing his journey through Capricorn.
The writing is clear, precise, and to the point. Christeen backs up what she says with science and facts and lets us see both the big picture and the little details. She coins terms such as astro-trader, astro-investor, astro-financier, astro-historian, and astro-detective. Christeen Skinner is all of these to the nth degree.
If you like this book, know that Christeen has just had a companion volume published – The Beginner’s Guide to the Financial Universe.
Although you might not go out and win big after reading this book, you will know much more about your chances and the best timing for making gains in the markets. Exploring the Financial Universe is an interesting and very useful addition to your bookshelf. *****
