“The world is approaching a food crisis in 2008 unless usage of agricultural products is curbed or ideal weather conditions and sharply higher crop yields are achieved.” – Financial Times* quoting analysts at Oil World oilseeds consultancy in Hamburg, Germany
Saturn (limitations) is in Virgo until 2010.** Virgo is symbolized by the maiden holding a shaft of wheat to represent the harvest. During this time Saturn will oppose Uranus in Pisces (November 4, 2008, February 5 and September 15, 2009, and April 26, 2010). Agricultural commodities will be in for a rollercoaster ride, soaring higher and higher until the bubble bursts in spring 2010.
