Hi, folks. Sasha, one of Astrology Mundo’s more prolific commenters, is back with an analysis of AIG that certainly deserves its own post.
In her post, Sasha says AIG could be getting some good news tomorrow as the Sun transits its Part of Fortune. Interesting, because Bloomberg is reporting that the government is considering “conservatorship” for the insurer. That’s what they did for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Over to you, Sasha, and thank you for all your hard work!
“American International Group (AIG) was incorporated on 6/9/1967 in Wilmington, Delaware.
I used 12 noon for the birth chart with transits set for 9/16/08, and it is a doozy of a chart. There are lots of hard aspects, taking into account only the transits. No wonder AIG has been hit hard.
The chart has a Virgo Ascendant, at 7.28, with Pluto, Uranus, and Part of Fortune at 18.0, 20.20, and 24.30 degrees of Virgo, respectively. Transiting Saturn is at 13.25 Virgo and just starting to hit these natal points.
Having had Saturn go through my 12th and 1st houses the last few years, I know what a traumatic experience that can be. In AIG’s chart, transiting Saturn is inconjunct natal Saturn at 10.45 Aries.
It gets worse. Transiting Uranus at 20.33 Pisces (7th house) is exactly opposing AIG’s natal Uranus. Natal Neptune (3rd house) at 22.18 Scorpio is also getting an exact square from transiting Neptune at 22.03 Aquarius, perhaps indicating the difficulty in persuading private investors to loan money to the world’s largest insurer.
The natal chart has Jupiter (3.00 Leo) conjunct Venus (3.04) in the 11th house. Mercury at 12.06 Cancer is also in the 11th. The Sun is in the 10th at 18.08 Gemini conjunct Pallas (17.34), reflecting AIG’s preeminence in the world insurance industry. Many people are also familiar with AIG’s retirement investment company SunAmerica, emphasis on “Sun” here. Transiting Pallas is at 14.18 Gemini. The Moon is also in the 10th at 5.12 Cancer.
Natal Mars at 16.14 Libra in the 2nd house is representative of the aggressive business tactics of this company. Transiting Mars just passed its natal point and is currently at 17.52 Libra. Transiting Mercury and Venus have recently crossed Mars and remain in the 2nd house for at least another week. Will the upcoming Mercury retrograde be the final nail in the coffin or will the Winged Messenger give AIG some breathing room?
The Sun should conjunct AIG’s Part of Fortune tomorrow. If there is any good news, it will come then. Of course, if AIG survives, it will face a transiting Jupiter opposition to natal Jupiter/Venus later next year and Pluto inconjunct this same Jupiter/Venus in late 2010.
A few other points: Natal Vesta at 19.06 Scorpio will soon be opposed by transiting Vesta, currently at 14.53 Taurus. Natal Ceres is located 26.23 Cancer, hinting of the nature of AIG’s insurance business. The Sabian Symbol for Cancer 27: “A violent storm in a residential canyon filled with expensive homes.”
I looked at the progressed chart. The progressed Sun is at 27.30 Cancer and making a loose conjunction with natal Ceres, Jupiter, and Venus. Progressed Mercury and progressed Pallas, both at 12.16 Cancer ,are conjunct natal Mercury.
Progressed Moon is at 19.07 Capricorn (5th house) and may benefit from transiting Jupiter at 12.38 Capricorn. However, transiting Jupiter is inconjunct progressed Jupiter and progressed Ceres at 11.24 and 14.24 Leo, respectively, and square natal (10.46) and pr Saturn (12.27) in Aries. Progressed Venus is at 8.08 Virgo having just crossed the natal Ascendant.
Side note: While Googling for info, I also came across this interesting piece of history: The Arab-Israeli Six-Day War occurred between June 5 and June 10, 1967.”
That’s it from Sasha. My feeling about AIG: It should be looking for investors from China, since the company traces its roots back to Shanghai in the early 20th century. Sasha used the incorporation chart because this is a matter of public record, and it would be hard to discover exactly what day AIG started selling policies in China.
