Financial Astrology - January 25, 2015


SP500
For the SP500, Cycle-wise we are in the 15th week of a Primary  1  cycle (aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks) starting at the Oct 15th low.

We are looking for the trough in the SP500 near by March 11, 2015 +- 1 week. This is close by two signatures with a history of occurring at primary cycle turns. These are Jupiter trine Uranus and Saturn stationary.

The long discussed 6th instance of the Uranus / Pluto waxing square was exact on Monday, Dec 15th and will be in orb until the 7th and last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The two planets will be very close for the next 3 months. We saw the type of dramatic event we were expecting when the Swiss National Bank announced they would de-peg their currency, the Swiss Franc to the Euro on Jan 15th. Will there be other currencies perhaps de-pegging from the Euro or maybe the US$ as well. Stayed tuned.

We await the late Feb. / March 2015 time frame where we expect dramatic events to transpire. The period from Feb 18 through March 20th looks particularly disruptive.

From last weeks blog post we were somewhat undecided about Jan 20th but were leaning to a negative outcome. We waited until shortly after 1:00pm. The sign we were looking for started near noon on Jan 20th and the markets went up until Friday, Jan 23rd where they were flat to down most of the day. More on this in the following video.

The EU decision to implement a QE program occurred under a Mercury retrograde, a period of time where major decisions and / or finalizing contracts do not turn out as expected.

SP500 - planetary mid-points
(to follow up from the last two blog posts following is a daily chart of the SP500 with the Mars through Pluto mid-points. They act as support and resistance.)



The above daily chart of the SP500 shows the mid point of the planets Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as discussed the last few weeks. The mid-point is expressed in planetary longitude and converted to price. On the chart we see the next resistance level around 2086 and the next support at 1995.

I haven't shown the following chart for some time. It does show the 45 degree line (dark blue) continues to act as support off the March 2009 low and is currently at 1994. Note the 1995 above.



There are a number of longer term market cycles that could hit in 2015. Two we've discussed before are the 4 year cycle and the 6 year cycle. There are a number of longer term cycles as well which are covered in the market letter.

(from four weeks ago, I'll update these in a couple of weeks)


In brief, the Central Banks of the world continue to try and stir up inflation while commodities appear to be in a deflationary down trend. This week is a little quieter as far as Astros are considered, however, we have the Greek election on the week-end, the FED meeting and then the Venus translation of the forming Saturn / Neptune square and Sun conjunct Mercury in the middle of a retrograde both pointing to a possible change in trend. I continue to look for the market to move down or enter a period of volatile consolidation as we await more powerful Astrological events.

I'm looking for the market (SP500) to move down early in the week. There is one astrological indicator identifying which day. I have reserved it for subscribers.

Gold
Gold put in a trough on Nov 7th. This would put us in the 12th week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week) during this coming week.

I may have been a tad early in selling 1/2 my Gold holdings. The use of the word "tad" is reserved for those periods where stupid mistakes are made by otherwise sane individuals.
{^_^}.

Gold made the bullish move many had expected, having made it to the 78.6% retracement of the move down from July 10, 2014 to Nov 7, 2014. To me, this appears to be to, too far, too fast. This was undoubtedly stimulated be the Swiss Franc de-peg and the EU announcement of QE.

So I won't be a buyer of Gold here instead I'm looking for the crest of the current Primary cycle. The aspect mentioned in the first video, that is Venus translating the Saturn, Neptune square may be important. The latter is one of the strongest signatures for changes in the price of Gold. Mercury turning retrograde on Jan 21 +- 2 td's can also mark a period where precious metals change trend.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold has made it up to the next higher Jupiter price line (blue). Remember when the Venus and Jupiter price line cross, it often changes the trend in Gold prices. This occurs on Jan 28th.

There is also a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle on this chart which has marked both highs and lows. This is the vertical red line on the chart. This also hits on Jan 28. Does Gold price reverse in the next few days? Quite possible. Give it an orb of +- 2 TD's. 27 is the number of days it takes the Moon to orbit the Earth. It then takes approx. 2.5 more days for the Moon to catch up to Earth which has moved.
27 * 4 = 108, an important Vedic number.



Silver also appears to be in the 15th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 on
Nov 7th. looks like the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) trough. Like Gold, Silver moved up with the conviction we were looking for. See comments under Gold.



The following daily chart of Silver shows the heliocentric price lines for Venus and Jupiter. Again, watch the days around Jan 28 for a possible reversal down.



Crude
I'll leave crude for subscribers this week.

SP500
For the SP500, Cycle-wise we are in the 14th week of a Primary  1  cycle (aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks) starting at the Oct 15th low.

The long discussed 6th instance of the Uranus / Pluto waxing square was exact on Monday, Dec 15th and will be in orb until the 7th and last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The two planets will be very close for the next 3 months.

Will there be other currencies perhaps de-pegging from the Euro or maybe the US$ as well. Stayed tuned.

From last week's blog:

"The coming 2 weeks have a number of long term potent aspects. I'm expecting this period to be very volatile with a strong possibility of a more significant move down in the markets and the possibility of more events triggered by ideological extremism."

I couldn't write the above more accurately if I wrote it today.

And from last week's market letter:

"January is shaping up to be explosive and tense and should continue for at least two more weeks."

"This time period may generate some world event as there is another astrological event on the weekend as well."

And dates from last week's letter
Jan 11 Heliocentric Jupiter waxing trine Uranus.

Jan 12 The Moon moves back to 15 degrees, 5 minutes of Libra.
Started the week with a convincing down day.

Jan 15 Pluto square North Node and Mars square Saturn. Could trigger an extreme event. This was the Swiss Franc de-peg. Will there be other changes to currencies pairs?

I'm looking for extreme events to continue into this coming week. Events could be market related, like the de-pegging of the Swiss Franc or events triggered by ideological extremism be it from militant Islam or other group.

I live in Canada. Many of our subscribers live in countries other than North America. The aspect readings are not meant to be for the USA only. They can typically manifest anywhere in the world. Sometimes aspects affect the natal planets of a country and we can pin point the location to some degree.

We are still in the time window where geophysical stress is building. Watch for an increase in earthquakes greater then 5.5. The Iceland volcanoes have been active but not in the mainstream news.


In addition to the planets there is a perigee New Moon (aka a Super Moon per Richard Nolle) on Jan 20th approx. 1 hour before the US market opens in New York. This is a New Moon when the Moon is passing the closest point to the Earth during the current orbit.

A New Moon is always a conjunction between the Sun and the Moon in this case at 0 degrees in Aquarius. The start of each sign is a powerful point. In addition the New Moon is also in quintile aspect (72 degrees) to the Uranus / North Node conjunction in Aries, remembering that the Uranus / Pluto square is still in orb. Uranus rules Aquarius so this New Moon has definite Uranian flavor to it. This is building a great deal of tension which may get released in additional violent events. The US may be involved in any events around Jan 20th. The New Moon in early Aquarius suggests an unpredictable, shocking energy which upsets the old order of things with Uranus prominent. Watch for this on Jan 20th +- 1 td.

The above mix of a New Moon in quintile to the Uranus / North Node conjunction could also suggest some truly innovative / new information which could result in immediate change. Again, watch Jan 20 +- 1 td. So we have both a favorable outcome or a negative outcome. I'm going with the negative outcome and am looking for a move down early in the trading week, possibly a dramatic move On Jan 20th. Just keep in mind the possible favorable outcome and be ready to switch. I expect we will realize the markets direction by 11:00am on January 20th.

Also watch for geophysical activity and possible bad storms during the above transits and Super Moon.

There is still the possibility of some type of disease / epidemic or poison. I've also mentioned poison and gas in previous posts This is not meant to be alarmist but is a possibility with the current aspects. Other aspects are reserved for subscribers. Watch the world news. Other words which described these aspects are rejection, denial and destruction.

There are a number of longer term market cycles that could hit in 2015. Two we've discussed before are the 4 year cycle and the 6 year cycle. There are a number of longer term cycles as well which are covered in the market letter.

Gold
Gold put in a trough on Nov 7th. This would put us in the 11th week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week) during this coming week.

To follow along with the previous blog post Gold did break above the Dec 9 high's and and the 61.8 % retracement, a very bullish move assisted by the Swiss de-pegging. So I remained in but sold off 1/2 of my Gold holdings on Friday. I will monitor next week to decide if I make a more substantial purchase. We are coming into the time period for a crest in the Gold primary cycle.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold broke through the Jupiter price line and is approaching the next Venus price line. Gold often reverses when the Venus and Jupiter price lines cross which is Jan 28th. Gold has also reversed from highs and lows near the 27 td (trading day) which is the red vertical line on Jan 22nd. The number 27 can be found in many places. The Moon takes approx. 27 days to orbit the Earth and then another 2.5 days to catch up to the Earth which has moved over the month.



Silver also appears to be in the 11th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 on
Nov 7th. looks like the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) trough. Like Gold, Silver moved up with the conviction we were looking for. See comments under Gold.





Crude
This week should start the 19th week of the Primary cycle. I expect a period of sideways consolidation looking for crude to settle in a range around $50.00-55.00. This may take some time.

I'm also expecting an increase in war like activity in the first quarter of 2015 (listen to the first video. Watch the days around Jan 19th for a possible move in crude. If war like activities affect any crude producing countries we could see an abrupt change in crude prices. Even if crude producing countries are not involved in war activities the threat should move prices up.

Both Jupiter and Neptune rule crude. The following daily chart of crude shows the 45 degree price lines for Jupiter (orange) and Neptune (green). The main Jupiter price line (bold orange) is at 49.99. Crude needs to move up through 50.00 to keep any small momentum up. Normally these two price lines mark excellent support and resistance. These price lines are somewhat useless when a commodity has crashed like crude. Despite all the squawking in the news crude has spent very little time above, or even close to 100.00 WTIC. Look back on the chart, before the move down in crude and you will see the two price lines acting as support and resistance.

SP500
For the SP500, Cycle-wise we are in the 13th week of a Primary  1  cycle (aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks) starting at the Oct 15th low.

The long discussed 6th instance of the Uranus / Pluto waxing square was exact on Monday, Dec 15th and will be in orb until the 7th and last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The two planets will be very close for the next 3 months. Although we have made this point before it is worth repeating. The Uranus/Pluto square is the defining planetary aspect for this period of history, from approximately 2011 through 2015.

Last week we said:

"This coming month, January, will witness a number of astrological aspects which could be explosive both for the markets and world events in general."

"This period of time, that the Uranus Pluto square has been active, has put a spotlight on ideological extremism."

And for the markets

"We won't have long to wait as the Sun will translate the Uranus / Pluto square on January 3, 2015+- a couple of TD's (trading days). This time period may generate some world event as there is another astrological event on the weekend as well."

The coming 2 weeks have a number of long term potent aspects. I'm expecting this period to be very volatile with a strong possibility of a more significant move down in the markets and the possibility of more events triggered by ideological extremism. Two of the aspects are longer term transits which I would normally give an orb of +- a month. The fact that there are two and other shorter term aspects often creates an environment where the longer term cycles hit earlier than usual. This may start early in the week but I've given it a 2 week window. Dates are reserved for subscribers. I'm short for Monday morning.

When the slower moving large planets get aspected like this they can result in geophysical stress. Watch for an increase in earthquakes greater then 5.5.


In addition to the planets there is a perigee New Moon (aka a Super Moon per Ritchard Nolle) on Jan 20th. This is a New Moon when the Moon is passing the closest point to the Earth during the current orbit. Again watch for geophysical activity and possible bad storms.

There are also two aspects in this 2 week window that point to either infection, disease and also poisons, gas and sudden death. Doesn't sound altogether too pleasant. More than one of these aspects are pointing to some type of disease / epidemic and are also suggesting something to do with poison gas. I've been looking for a pick up in war rhetoric and this period may see this beginning. Watch the world news. Other words which described these aspects are rejection, denial and destruction.

There are a number of longer term market cycles that could hit in 2015. Two we've discussed before are the 4 year cycle and the 6 year cycle. There are a number of longer term cycles as well which are covered in the market letter.

Gold
Gold put in a trough on Nov 7th. This would put us in the 10th week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week) during this coming week.

During last week Gold did start moving up but not with the conviction I was looking for.
The positives are Gold moved above the trend line and price is now above both the 15 and 45 day sma's.

Gold needs to move above the Dec 9 high's or the 50% retracement around 1238. If Gold has not broken above this area by the week of Jan 19th I'll be looking to get out of my Gold holdings and watch for awhile. This is also true for Silver.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold is currently sitting on the main Jupiter (dark blue) price line. A break through here would be very positive.



Silver also appears to be in the 10th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 on
Nov 7th. looks like the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) trough. Like Gold, Silver needs to move up with some conviction or it is in danger of a sharp move down. See comments under Gold.



Crude
This week should start the 18th week of the Primary cycle. I expect a period of sideways consolidation looking for crude to settle in a range, over time, around $50.00-55.00.

I'm also expecting an increase in war like activity in the first quarter of 2015. I've been looking for the end of February or March but conflicts could start sooner. Watch the days around Jan 19th for a possible move in crude. If war like activities affect any crude producing countries we could see an abrupt change in crude prices. Even if crude producing countries are not involved in war activities the threat would move prices up.
