July 1, 2011 Partial Solar Eclpise

July1 there is a partial solar eclipse. The path of the eclipse is over the Antarctic ocean. The visible path area on the surface of the earth is often the most potent (i.e. see the post on February 13 about the Jan 4, 2011 solar eclipse).

This does not mean the upcoming eclipse will have no effect. In fact the solar eclipse will fill in a T square with Saturn, Uranus and Pluto. These are revolutionary aspects so we may see more social unrest. Bear in mind the eclipse can be the seed time when events occur behind the scene which come out at a later date often when the eclipse point is transited. As Dylan sang "there's revolution in the air". Of course Dylan also sang of "old men with broken teeth stranded without love". Well at least I don't have broken teeth, maybe some are loose, but I digress.

In this case the planets in the T square are slow moving but unrelenting. We are in for a number of years of revolutionary activity in many countries. At the eclipse time Saturn will be exalted in Libra and thus may have more strength than usual. In peace loving Libra it is possible actions are taken to alleviate some of the current strain temporarily.

Whatever happens at that time it won’t stand the test of time as Uranus and Pluto will be forming 7 exact conjunctions between June 2012 and March 2015. During this period many existing institutions and organizations will be greatly transformed or eliminated. Think governments, religions, banking institutions and any man made structures. Morally bankrupt politicians will also be in the firing line.

The effect of an eclipse can effect a much longer period of time. This is the first eclipse in a new Saros cycle so there is no previous eclipse to go back to and examine. Although the eclipse path is in the Antarctic ocean the Sun and Moon are both over Saudi Arabia at the time of the eclipse. This may be very telling. Eclipses are powerful structures. Watch for its effect in many countries. Eclipse paths near the poles typically have an effect all over the world. We won't get into antiscia points here, but those who know what they are compare an antiscia chart of this eclpise with an eclipse chart and you will see the North Node conjunct Pluto. This aspect can mean something that effects a large group of people or nation.

As the above may only be of interest to astrologers the following is something in the markets. Please see the updated chart of Silver. Silver seems to have hit support at the Venus price line. Watch this line to ensure Silver does not break the line. If it does it may be a good short term short. If it starts to follow the price line up, or bounces up, it's a buy. I think the July 1 solar eclipse will have a short term negative effect on the general markets.

Sun / Uranus Retrograde

We are coming into a very volatile time frame with a number of aspects which have coincided with big swings in the markets.

This is leading up to the Uranus retrograde on July 9th. Approximately 12 days before the Uranus retrograde the Sun squares Uranus (June 26) and approximately 18 days after the Uranus retrograde the Sun trines Uranus (July 27).

In this time period, between the Sun square and Sun trine the markets often make a low and at the least are volatile. The following 2 charts show some recent history of the these aspects. They are circled in light blue. These are daily charts of the SP500.

Sun square Uranus (light blue square)
Uranus retrograde (red arrow pointed left)
Sun trine Uranus (dark blue circle)

These aspects may be stronger than usual as Uranus is in close square to Pluto.

I have been looking for a 50 week cycle low July 7-11, however, it should not be overlooked that the Sun square Uranus on June 26 and Sun opposition Pluto on June 28 may mark a low and the time period around around the Uranus retrograde may mark a short-term high. Only watching price action during this volatile period will tell the story.

The partial solar eclipse on July 1 is making contacts to Saturn (square) and Pluto (opposition) as well as a broad square to Uranus. As solar eclipses can affect time periods months before and after the event, this does not auger well for the coming months. The fact that Saturn is in Libra, where it is exalted, may have a more positive influence than the norm.

June 20, 2011

Looking for a reversal in crude. This will be very dependent on the US$ as a rise in the US buck will dampen all commodities including Oil. Nevertheless there are a number of medium and short term cycles pointing to a trough in crude. In addition there are a number of aspects to Neptune, which rules Oil and is in it's rulership in Pisces.

Neptune is trining Hades. The Sun will conjunct Hades tomorrow and exact trine to Neptune on June 22. Jupiter will be contraparallel to Neptune On June 24. We may also hear of some type of water pollution. I can only wonder what the heck is going on in the Pacific off the coast of Japan.

Perhaps we find out shortly.

As far as stocks and the SP500, I'm still looking for a low ideally around July 7-11 but we could get a move up this week. If we do it should be short and fast as we have the Sun translating the Uranus Pluto square June 26-28.

RIMM is cooked. See yesterdays post.

Apparently so are parts of Japan.

The US media isn't interested in reporting the above since the nuclear industry is big business in the US. Japanese reactors are GE technology. (no morals)

For those following along the Moon conjuncts Pluto at 1:23 pm EDT in NY.

I don't usually mention times but was asked this morning.

I should point out the Moon Pluto conjunct is almost on the Midheaven of RIMM which announces tonight.

Dramatic changes ?

June 14, 2011

I believe the positive vibes will be leaving the market when the Moon leaves Sagittarius and enters Capricorn. The morning of June 16th should be very different, that is negative by the 16th if not before.

The moon will be snuggling up to Pluto and igniting the Uranus Pluto square. YIKES!

Monday, June 13, 2011

June 13, 2011

The moon enters Sagittarius tonight. This often coincides with increased volatility in many markets, particularly precious metals and currencies, but stocks as well.

It will still be there for the Solar Eclipse Wednesday afternoon.

Be very careful trading.

For those that are into it the Sun is conjunct antiscia point of July 1, 2011 partial Solar Eclipse tomorrow June 11th.

This can affect a number of days +- around the event. Watch the market and world events for a clue as to what will occur around the actual eclipse.

June 8

June 7 there was an M-2 class solar flare on the Sun. As a result we will be getting a big geomagnetic storm on Thursday June 9 although it should be a glancing blow.

This is all part of the 11 / 22 year cycle where solar activity, flares etc, increase. It coincides with the 11 year cycle of Jupiter.

Such storms can effect geopolitical, market action or geophysical events down here on earth. All other forecasted dates remain the same although a surge into June 8 +- seems to be a stretch and could invert dropping further.

June 6, 2011

I was still looking for one last surge in stocks around June 8 +- but will probably not be as strong as I originally thought.

Nevertheless June should be down into late June and probably into July. Early July would be ideal as the nominal 50 week cycle is due and the Uranus / Pluto square will be at its closest point this year on July 9 when Uranus goes retrograde.

Uranus retrograde is always preceded by a Sun squared Uranus approx. 13 cd's before the retrograde and Sun trine Uranus approx. 18 cd's afterwards. The dates this time are:
June 26 Sun squared Uranus
July 9 Uranus retrograde
July 27 Sun trine Uranus

I look at the nominal 50 week cycle trough falling between those two dates,
June 26 - July 27 and probably very close to July 7, 8 when Venus translates the Uranus / Pluto square.

Other dates to watch for big range days are:
June 18,19 Mercury translates the Uranus / Pluto square

June 26,28 Sun translates the Uranus / Pluto square

There are always a number of dates to watch, June 13 is an Armstrong date and close to a Saturn retro.

All things considered June should be a down month with some big retracements culminating in a 50 week low in early July.

More on the Uranus / Pluto square later which is going to effect the next few years and not in a positive way when we are going through them. There maybe be new discoveries which will be appreciated after the square dissipates.

And remember
It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.
