From The Huffington Post:
"In the last month we have seen Edvard Munch go for $120 million, Mark Rothko sell at $87 million and Roy Lichtenstein auction off at $44.9 million. Now one of Jean-Michel Basquiat's untitled pieces from 1981 is on the chopping block and already stirring up rumors of record prices. Scheduled for auction on June 27th at Christie's in London, "Untitled" is sitting pretty at a $20 million estimated price. This is nearly four million higher than Basquiat's previous record, which was achieved last May in New York."
The planet Venus of art and beauty is no longer out of bounds by declination (measured north and south of the equator), but Mercury is. May's record sales for Munch, Rothko, and Lichtenstein, occurred with Venus OOB, out of bounds. As Venus is transiting Mercury ruled Gemini, the condition of Mercury now determines how Venus finds expression. And Mercury is OOB until the June 19 New Moon. Therefore, all things related to Venus are still somewhat prone to extremes- and when stationary-direct June 27, Venus will 'on' the Aries point(by 16th harmonic) and have a greater impact on world events.
