Financial Astrology - Oct. 26, 2014


Summary
Another week of volatility ahead. Last week we had the Oct 22 pullback but were surprised at the strength on Oct 23, 24. Nevertheless we are looking for lower prices in the SP500 near the start of the week. Giving the Solar eclipse date +- 3 td's (trading days) we are still in the eclipse window. We also have a number of signatures for a change in trend including Mercury direct on Oct 25, Mars enters Capricorn on Oct 26th and the Sun trine Neptune on Oct 29. On Oct 27th there is a grand trine which is having an effect over a longer period of time and may be the trigger for more Ebola incidents. See comments further down.

With volatility news of the Ebola pandemic should continue. The Solar eclipse path was pointing to increased tensions between Russia and the USA and maybe their leaders. This may not be immediate but watch the news. This eclipse may also affect the British Royals. Also watch the news.

Beyond the eclipse there is a forming grand trine with Venus (including the eclipse point), Neptune and Hades a Uranian point. These appear to be pointing to further disease problems. The Uranus / Pluto waxing square is coming back in focus with Pluto moving forward while Uranus continues retrograde.

My trading plan includes a pull back early in the week and then assess the market status after the FED announcement on Oct. 29th. Although I'm leaning to a bearish position, major markets could move up into early November. I'm specifically looking at the week of Nov 10th for a possible high.

SP500
We are entering the 12th week of the nominal 18 week cycle  1  which started on Aug 7th.

We saw the start of a 1/2 Primary  1 on Oct 15th. At this point in the cycle, which started on Aug 7th, looks very left translated meaning this would be a very bearish 18 week cycle. With the Astrological aspects over the weekend and next week I'm looking for a pullback Oct 27,28 and all life on earth will stop at 2:00pm on Oct 29 for the FOMC meeting announcement. I will probably stand aside on Oct. 29th, until the FED's announcement is clear. This event has the potential for drastic move in either direction.

Following is the SP500 and shows the area for the potential low for this 18 week cycle.
Red squares are Mercury turning retrograde and the blue squares are Mercury returning to direct motion. The recent dates are Oct 4 for Mercury turning retrograde and Oct 25 Mercury turning direct. The description of the Mercury inferior conjunction was in the market letter and occurred on Oct 16th, one day after the low. These dates alone often mark trend changes. Friday Oct 24 was also 55 td's (trading days) from the Aug 7th low.

We are still in the Solar eclipse window as the dates were +- 3 td's. Until we take out the Sept. 19th high, this is a left translated bearish cycle pattern. Although looking for a pullback early in the week the FED announcement could change the market direction quickly.



Historically we are entering the strong period of the year for the markets. We also have the reaction to the mid-term elections in the US. It was pointed out to me this is typically very positive when there is a democratic president. This is based on averages but we should be aware of market tendencies to move in one direction or the other.

So we are at a very important point. Do we go up into the traditional positive time of the year or has 5 years of FED easy money so distorted valuations that the market can only go down. This is a difficult call, but with the Astros in front of us to the end of the year and into next year I suspect we are going down or will be flat. A dramatic increase in inflation would change this outlook.

So I'm looking for a move down early next week. In this environment where bad news is good for the markets because the crowd now expects more government monetary intervention when bad news comes out. Although I have a bearish view over the long hall we could move up after the FED announcement. The week of Nov 10th has astro events pointing to a potential high. It may be a lower high.

To follow up on the potential effects of the Solar eclipse, I was looking for changes to the financial system.

The following is from another Astrologer - Ed - Tamplin   http://www.edtamplin.com/

CHINA - INFRASTRUCTURE AND INVESTMENT BANK
"On the morning of October 24 2014 – shortly after the Scorpio Solar Eclipse with Venus, twenty nations joined China as the founding co-signatories of the new Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank. The bank will have an initial capitalization of $50 billion dollars and may eventually rival the World Bank and Asian Development Bank for international lending.

Founding signatory countries were China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia,

Myanmar, Nepal, Oman, the Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
Australia was also invited and expressed initial interest. However, the US Secretary of State John Kerry pressured Prime Minister Tony Abbott out of the venture, involving both nations' greatest trading partner. Other notable absentees were Indonesia and South Korea, with the South Korean finance minister still considering joining at a later date.

The date and timing are significant. The astrologer researcher Edward Johndro in choosing a time for a corporation would examine the planet ruling the purpose of the corporation and see when it was conjunct or opposite an eclipse point – preferably a solar eclipse - and barring that check whether the planet was stationary.

The Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank signing has Venus – planet of value – exactly at the eclipse point. This is also the degree that Mercury stationed at before turning retrograde on October 5. Mercury is the planet of business transactions and contracts. Mercury is now stationing before turning direct on the 26th. By choice or accident the time of this signing is astrologically auspicious."

Two days before the MH17 flight crashed in the Ukraine the BRIC nations formed their equivalent to the IMF. There are many financial related changes occurring in the financial system worldwide, many of which do not favor the USA or Europe.

It's difficult to get a straight story now on financial happenings. This may make it better or worse, don't know at this time. We do know large changes are occurring.

Grand Trine Oct 27th
Also mentioned above is the Grand trine in water signs involving Neptune in Pisces, Hades in Cancer and Venus (incl. the Sun) in Scorpio. Hades and Neptune move very slowly. We can look at Venus, and the Sun as triggers.

Scorpio is associated with birth, sex and death. In mundane astrology this includes larger survival and mortality issues that affect society. An example is the early 80's when Saturn and Pluto travelled through Scorpio. There was an increased awareness of safe sex and the aids pandemic came into focus.

Scorpio also rules over other people's money, debt and those industries that control other people's money. This would include banks, central banks, large funds, life insurance and any companies in the financial service industries and the world's financial system itself.

In mundane astrology Neptune is associated with epidemics and diseases of all kinds. During this eclipse Neptune is in a grand trine with the eclipse point (incl. Venus) and Hades. Hades 2 is a Uranian point and can be quite nasty. Although associated with antiquities it also rules ruins, waste and deprivation. It is decay, death and the process of breakdown that occurs when living organisms die and return back to the soil. The bright side, if there is one, is that life is reborn out of the ashes of prior life. Look for a possible increase in the current Ebola crisis, other possible water borne disease and any news of findings concerning antiquities.

The grand trine is exact on Monday Oct 27th. Knowing that Neptune and Hades move very slowly I went back one orbit of Venus and found the same grand trine on Nov 23, 2012. I checked the news around that date and found this.


We may be hearing more about Ebola over the next few weeks. I can't find anything tying this signature to the USA. It's a world problem.

Other issues I raised about the Solar eclipse are still relevant and should be watched over the next few weeks. These are an increase in tensions / events between Russia and the USA and the possible effect on the British Royals.

The Uranus and Pluto waxing square will be coming back into focus over the coming weeks.  It will be exact on Dec 15. This will be the 6th exact square in this series of 7 exact squares. The last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The period around both these dates, Dec 15, 2014 and March 16, 2015 could be troublesome on the world stage and the financial markets in particular.



Gold
Gold is in the 4th week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week). I'm looking at this as the 4th week of a new Primary 1 and this would be the first nominal 6 week cycle of the Primary. For those who have been reading these letters for awhile I look for a pull-back in the first 2-3 weeks of a New Primary  1 .  I believe Gold and Silver are in this short term pullback now and have further upside into the 6 week cycle.  

I'm looking for Gold to hit the 50% retracement around 1265 for this first 6 week. Currently price is on the 15 day sma and bounced off the 45 day sma, a bearish move.



The following weekly chart shows the heliocentric Jupiter price line. It has acted as support for Gold in the past as seen on the following chart.



Silver is also in the 4th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 . Like Gold, Silver appears to be pulling back into the 2-3 week cycle low. We then expect Silver to move up into it's 6 week cycle high.

The following chart shows the Venus (green) and Jupiter(blue) price lines on a daily chart for Silver. The trend often changes when these two price lines cross. Silver is currently running up the Jupiter price line. If it is a new Primary cycle I would expect Silver to rise away from the price line.



Crude
We are in either the second week of a new Primary 1 cycle or the 26th week of an older and extended Primary 1 cycle in crude. The last cycle was left translated which is bearish. If this is a new cycle forming watch for it to be left translated as well. There is a lot of deflationary pressure on many commodities, precious metals included.

There are many reason, US and Saudi intentionally over producing to drive out high cost producers and hurt Russia, ISIS and Iran. This plan seems to be working but there are always unforeseen repercussions. Western governments collect a lot of tax revenue from the price at the pump. If it is down the government revenues are down. Crude may be reflecting the real world economy. When crude does turn up it will probably be to lower highs. This is also causing problems between mid-East governments.

For crude I'm watching the 23.6% retracement level on the following daily chart.

I'm looking for a trigger for crude. Aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the rulers of crude would be good candidates. Possible candidates are:

Oct 27 Venus trine Neptune trine Hades

Oct 28 Sun trine Neptune. I like this one best.



On a longer term basis there is a 38-39 month cycle in crude, many commodities and the US$. The longer term cycles need a wider orb. This cycle could trough out from now to early November. It could also be this week. The following weekly chart (2 pages down) shows the 38/39 month cycle in crude.

Financial Astrology - October 19, 2014


Summary
Another week of volatility ahead. The Solar eclipse on Oct 23rd is the most obvious but there are other critical dates for trading. Subscribers have these dates. Volatility should continue as should the Ebola pandemic. The Solar eclipse path is pointing to increased tensions between Russia and the USA and maybe their leaders. This may not be immediate but watch the news. This eclipse may also affect the British Royals.

Volatility in the markets should continue with a number of astrological events which should affect the markets. Beyond the eclipse there is a forming grand trine with Venus (including the eclipse point), Neptune and Hades a Uranian point. These are pointing to further disease problems although I had thought a water borne disease but is probably Ebola. The Uranus / Pluto waxing square is coming back in focus with Pluto moving forward while Uranus continues retrograde. The meaning of this important square has been covered in previous posts.

SP500
We are entering the 11th week of the nominal 18 week cycle  1 (nominal 18 week) which started on Aug 7th.

We may be seeing the start of a 1/2 Primary  1 At this point in the cycle, which started on Aug 7th, looks very left translated meaning this would be a very bearish 18 week cycle. Although it's too early to call for the end of the bull market, this type of cycle pattern is usually seen in bear markets. The high on Sept 19th will probably be the high for this 18 week nominal cycle and may be a high of significance which will be a high for some period of time.

Following is the SP500 and shows the area for the potential low for this 18 week cycle.
Red squares are Mercury turning retrograde and the blue squares are Mercury returning to direct motion. The recent dates are Oct 4 for Mercury turning retrograde and Oct 25 Mercury turning direct. The description of the Mercury inferior conjunction was in the subscribers market letter. These dates alone often mark trend changes. Friday Oct 24 is also 55 td's (trading days) from the Aug 7th low.



We'll take the focus off the market cycles and concentrate on the Astrological events in front of us this month. As predicted this has been a very volatile month in the markets and world events. Subscribers have the dates and potential trading approach. We can't show all forecast dates and events as some information is reserved for subscribers. I can say I was up more than $99 squared shortly after the Oct 8th Lunar eclipse.

Oct 23 is the date for the Solar eclipse. There are other dates coming up that should affect the markets as well. Very volatile conditions still apply. FED squawking probably will not help. Any news of continuing QE3 or it's equivalent would be bullish short term. If at any time price goes below the Oct 15th low be very careful. There is little support below this area. As I'll be short this would be good news.

We've been following the Uranus / Pluto waxing square for some time. Due to retrograde motion this has been a 7 pass with the last two exact squares coming up on Dec 15, 2014 and then March 17, 2015.

We had mentioned illness / epidemic in the Oct 4th post. The Solar eclipse takes place in the early degrees of Scorpio and is almost conjunct Venus. Scorpio is associated with birth, sex and death. In mundane astrology this includes larger survival and mortality issues that affect society. The Solar eclipse will emphasize Scorpio as there are 4 planets in Scorpio. An example is the early 80's when Saturn and Pluto traveled through Scorpio. There was an increased awareness of safe sex and the aids pandemic came into focus.

Scorpio also rules over other people's money, debt and those industries that control other people's money. This would include banks, central banks, large funds, life insurance and any companies in the financial service industries and the world's financial system itself.

In mundane astrology Neptune is associated with epidemics and diseases of all kinds. During this eclipse Neptune is in a grand trine with the Solar eclipse point (incl. Venus) and Hades. Hades 2 is a Uranian point and can be quite nasty. Although associated with antiquities it also rules ruins, waste and deprivation. It is decay, death and the process of breakdown that occurs when living organisms die and return back to the soil. The bright side, if there is one, is that life is reborn out of the ashes of prior life. Look for a possible increase in the current Ebola crisis, other possible water borne disease and any news of findings concerning antiquities.

The grand trine, mentioned above is all in water signs. These are the emotional signs. Trading and emotions don't mix well.

Space does not permit, but this eclipse may be associated with the British Royals. I'll bring this up in a future letter as this eclipse point gets hit by other transiting planets. Watch for news on the Royals next week.

These two eclipses (Lunar and Solar) should cause events that remind everyone the world's financial system is still unstable. We will get out of this but unfortunately not before we go through some tough times, or continued tough times for many. I'm looking past 2020 before we can say we are out of the financial mess. The Solar eclipse also can stir up geophysical problems and possibly violent weather where the eastern seaboard of the US may be hit.

The subscribers will have more details on these two powerful eclipses.



Mars will be in Sagittarius until October 26th. Expect volatility in many markets from this transit and the other major transits noted above. Mars is also "Out Of Bounds" by declination, also emphasizing volatility.

The Uranus and Pluto waxing square will be coming back into focus over the coming weeks.  It will be exact on Dec 15. This will be the 6th exact square in this series of 7 exact squares. The last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The period around both these dates, Dec 15, 2014 and March 16, 2015 could be troublesome on the world stage and the financial markets in particular.

Gold
Gold is in the 3rd week of it's Primary cycle   1  (nominal 18 week). I'm looking at this as the 3rd week of a new Primary 1 and this would be the first nominal 6 week cycle of the Primary. For those who have been reading these letters for awhile I look for a pull-back in the first 2-3 weeks of a New Primary  1  . We may see this early next week. It may have already started with the last two days lower.

I'm looking for Gold to hit the 50% retracement around 1265 for this first 6 week cycle. Currently price is above the 15 day sma and bounced off the 45 day sma, a bearish move.



The following weekly chart shows the heliocentric Jupiter price line. It has acted as support for Gold in the past as seen on the following chart.


Silver is in the 3rd or 21st week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 . Like Gold, silver may have just put in a Primary low and the bounce could be the start of a new Primary..

The following chart shows the Venus (green) and Jupiter(blue) price lines on a daily chart for Silver. The trend often changes when these two price lines cross. Silver is currently running up the Jupiter price line. If it is a new Primary cycle I would expect Silver to rise away from the price line.


Crude
We are in either the first week of a new Primary 1 cycle or the 25th week of an older Primary 1 cycle in crude. The last cycle was left translated which is bearish. If this is a new cycle forming watch for it to be left translated as well. There is a lot of deflationary pressure on many commodities, precious metals included.

There are many reason, US and Saudi intentionally over producing to drive out high cost producers and hurt Russia, ISIS and Iran. This plan seems to be working but there are always unforeseen repercussions. Western governments collect a lot of tax revenue from the price at the pump. If it is down the government revenues are down. Crude may be reflecting the real world economy. When crude does bounce it will probably be to lower highs.

For crude I'm watching the 23.6% retracement level on the following daily chart.

I'm looking for a trigger for crude. Aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the rulers of crude would be good candidates. Possible candidates are:

Oct 20 Sun parallel Neptune

Oct 27 Venus trine Neptune trine Hades (This may be disease central)

Oct 28 Sun trine Neptune. I like this one best but be on guard for any of the above.



On a longer term basis there is a 38-39 month cycle in crude, many commodities and the US$. The longer term cycles need a wider orb. This cycle could trough out from now to early November. It could also be this week. The following weekly chart (2 pages down) shows the 38/39 month cycle in crude.

Financial Astrology - Oct 11, 2014


Summary
The last two calls have turned out right on the day, Sept 25th and Oct. 8th. I usually give a time window of +-2  or 3 td's (trading days). Keep that in mind. All calls are a minimum of +- 2 td's unless otherwise noted. Thanks again for the kind words and encouragement.

Comments from Previous posts:

From the Oct 4, 2014 blog post.
"We have a powerful Lunar eclipse on Oct 8th that looks ominous after the Sept 25th move down. Watch for big moves near this date and quite possibly on it."

"The Lunar eclipse of Oct 8th forms a T-square with the forming Uranus / Pluto waxing square creating a T-square with Pluto as the focal planet. The focal planet will express the energy of the T-square. Pluto is in Capricorn and still very close to the heliocentric Jupiter nodes, a power point in the Zodiac."

" Volatility in the markets should continue with the likelihood of extreme volatility."

From the Sept 27, 2014 blog post
"On Sept 25th the Moon was on the spot where the Sun will be during the lunar eclipse, opposite Uranus. It invoked fear in the markets and a sharp down move. We may get a repeat performance close to the Lunar eclipse date."

From the Sept 21, 2014 Market letter:

"In addition on Sept 25 the Moon passes over the point, where the Sun will be during the Oct 8th Lunar Eclipse. The Moon will also be opposing Uranus on Sept 25th. Putting this together there appears to be some surprise and may have something to do with the US$ or some other currencies. I'm looking at this as an event or a secret comes out that effects the US$ or other currencies. This may be just the start. This period around Sept 25th should turn out to be significant."

On a 30 minute chart. The last 2 red arrows are those two calls on Sept. 25th and Oct 8th. The two green arrows are from our published forecast dates.



This blog post will be short as I'm a little late writing the subscribers letter. Back to normal next week. Be careful the markets should be very volatile. We have a Solar eclipse coming up and other important dates that will effect the markets.

To give you one possibility for the coming week the following weekly Gold chart shows the Jupiter price lines (blue). Looking back it has acted as support for many years. Watch this to see if Gold can break up. Subscribers have some specific dates to watch.
