March 30, 2011

It would appear the low in stocks many had been waiting for was March 16th. If so, and this was the 9 month cycle low then the stock market express should be starting up again. Looking for a top in June of this year.

Before we jump in again, waiting for the Mercury retrograde, which is tonight. Stocks or some other market often reverse around the Mercury retrograde date +- 3 trading days. In this instance Mercury is in Aries which can make it more volatile.

In addition to the Mercury retrograde we are in the middle of a number of volatile Mars aspects and a nasty new Moon on April 3.

For the above reasons we will wait until Monday to decide whether to get back in the markets. We are holding the gold shorts mentioned earlier but do not like the price action and therefore may be sellers today.

Following is recent Mercury retrograde history. Red arrow to left, retrograde. Blue arrow to right direct. Shadow date is the date Mercury returns to its retrograde position.

March 26, 2011 Update

Watching precious metals, specifically Gold for a pull back early in the week.

This is based on Sun Pluto square on Monday March 28. The Sun always squares Pluto approx. 12 calendar days before Pluto goes retrograde. This is often a quick sharp pull back ending around the retrograde date, in this case April 8/11. Remember all dates given are +- 3 trading days unless otherwise noted.

Monday also has Jupiter opposition Saturn which is a 20 year cycle and is one of the main cycles to watch for the economy. That's the economy not the stock market. Nevertheless way may see a turn up in the general economy over the next few months. If it doesn't blow up first that is :)

Still looking at potentially violent transits over the next 2 weeks with many Mars transits being activated. As mentioned the next new moon April 3 is a potentially troublesome period.

And on the FED speaking out and explaining policy after FED meetings rather than a terse written statement....where are those bank bailout amounts Bloomberg won the right to in court? Something smells here, but it could of course be me.

March 24, 2011 Update

A brief note. Although we have been expecting a further decline it appears the market is starting higher once again.

The following chart is a 60 minute chart for the SP500 (spy). As can be seen the market broke through the down sloping trend line and appears ready to advance further. We are slowly starting to buy but still cautious mainly due to the violent astrological picture ahead for the next 2 weeks. It looks safe to come out from under the bed around April 6th at this point.

Any move above 1315 (spy 131.50) and we will be buying more aggressively.

Held off buying today.

March 18, 2011 Update

Since much of what has been written on this blog has been about forecasting the markets, this post will look at other potential problems.

Starting today and for at least the next week we are in a very negative energy period from an Astrological perspective. The perigee full moon (March 19) is at a very close pass to earth and the Sun will be squaring the North Node on (March 18). The sun will pass into Aries on March 20 (spring equinox) and conjunct Uranus on March 21. This point is squaring the North Node, Hades (a Uranian point) and the Galactic Centre (GC). The North Node is almost on the Galactic Centre.

This sets up a potent T square with the North Node on the GC opposing the Hades point. The Sun Uranus conjunction in the first degree of Aries is on the world point, i.e. events that effect the world and is the focal point for the North Node, GC / Hades position. Lots of other things going on, but I think that is enough for now.

This could be a period of further geophysical events and / or severe weather anywhere on earth. It could also stand for intensifying problems in Japan or the mid-East. What ever happens it will pass and hopefully will not result in another disaster situation.

Keep safe.

Mar 16, 2011 Update

A short note.

I'm basically out of the market. As I read the Astros, there is a lot going on but this weekend seems to be a peak in these energies. Unfortunately Mars hits this point in early April possibly extending this disaster or the sign of new problems.

I'm expecting a market rally sometime after that with more problems mid June and mid July.

We should keep in mind the nuclear problems in Japan. Man says he is in control until he isn't. The same is true for all things including the financial system. Before Ben Bernanke was the FED chairman he was on the board agreeing with all the bubbles Greenspan created.

Good luck.

Expect the Unexpected - Part 2

As much as we do not like forecasting dire events, the following may be important.

The Fukushima Power Plant was commissioned March 26, 1971, no time available.

The following chart shows the commission date horoscope in the inner wheel and today’s transiting planets.

Some points worth noting. I've used the commissioned date for the Fukushima Power Plant, however, the transiting planet energy could affect any place in the world.

The natal chart has an Aries Sun which squares Mars in Capricorn. Thus Uranus closing in on the Sun and Pluto almost on the natal Mars.

The current transits seem to point to the period of March 18-24 as an extreme in volatile energy. The period around April 4-6 seems to heat up again as Mars is in hard aspect to the Sun / Mars square and Mars is translating the Uranus North Node square.

The transiting planets have the Sun joining Uranus On March 21 and thus squaring the North Node in Sagittarius, Jupiter is also forming an opposition to Saturn which will be exact on March 28.

What is not mentioned or followed by many astrologers are the Uranian planets, of which Hades is currently at 28 degrees in Gemini and therefore forming a T-square with Uranus and the North Node.

With the perigee full moon on March 19 and the spring equinox on March 20, it would appear the height of this explosive energy is in front of us. Hopefully the massive earthquake has released the pent up energy that has been building for some time, and what we have seen is not a precursor to a bigger event in the near future. It is very difficult, if not impossible to forecast such events to the day. The problem is not with the astrology but with the astrologers.

Obviously March 26 is 40 years ago. 40 is a number often used by Eric Hadik and seen in the Bible as 40 days, or weeks, or months or years "of testing".

Hopefully this test is over.

We should all send our prayers to the people of Japan. Our world leaders, who seem to be in short supply, should also not take their eyes off the critical situation in Libya.

Where natural disasters are not under our control, mass murders are.

March 2011 Update

Of further interest on the subject of the Nodes and Uranus.

The Nodes change signs on March 3 and square Uranus On March 5.

Uranus moves into Aries on March 11 while the square is still active.

I went back in time to the last time Uranus entered Aries. Interestingly it was April 1, 1927. It squared the Nodes a few days later.

So what happened back then. Basically the Dow went almost straight up until Sept 1929. We all know what happened at that point.

This is not meant to mean we will get the same result, but it is certainly prudent to watch the markets around the dates where this square is active.

March 3- March 14 (March 8,9 Mercury Squares North Node then Mercury conjunct Uranus)
March 18,21 (Sun square the Nodes and conjunct Uranus.)

Mars will translate this square in early April. More on this later.
