Financial Markets and Astrology June25th, 2012

We have arrived at the first exact waxing square of Uranus to Pluto. As outlined in a previous post this is the first of seven squares ending in 2015. The exact dates were in a previous post. This signature is going to colour history from now ( really started about a year ago)  to approximately one year after the last exact square which would put us in 2016. A brief history of the Uranus Pluto square (incl. waxing and waning squares) is as follows:

1819 – financial crisis in the US

1870’s – long recession

1930’s great depression

We won’t reiterate it’s effects as that was included in a previous post but it has everything to do with debt, social unrest, changing the status quo, perhaps abruptly and tax revolts. People unhappy with their government and determined to change things. Governments working hard to control their populations.
On the positive side, what should come out of this period is great advancements in technology in a number of fields.

The following is a daily chart of the SP500 showing the 40week cycle.

On Monday we also have Jupiter waxing square to Neptune. Also a fairly long term aspect, the last conjunction was Dec 20, 2009.

The following weekly chart of Gold shows the previous 2 occurrences of Jupiter squared Neptune. They were both 3 passes. They are highlighted in the circles. Note the spike in Gold during the respective periods. This time it is a one pass.

The period around this date, June 25th, may have a great effect on Crude and Natural Gas prices.
Neptune rules Crude and NatGas and Jupiter is the co-ruler.

This is also a signature for speculation, gain without effort, scandals and political conflicts. This square also aspects the North Node fairly closely making this a powerful T-square. Give it +- a week and be looking for scandals, failed speculation or any of the above. 

That same day Saturn turns direct. If there are any unrealistic speculation or financing, Saturn has a way of bringing a dose of reality to the party. With Venus almost stopped, preparing for it’s direct move on June 27th, I would expect money is involved. The last time Venus and Saturn did a retrograde dance together was the low in early October 2002. The Sun will translate the Uranus / Pluto square on June 29. It should be an interesting week.

Assuming we make it through the coming week unscathed the next period, which may be even more significant, is July 13-July 18. The same cast of characters in the mix although Mars has moved to centre stage. If the markets are still up watch for a big move in mid July. Don’t look down. You can get dizzy.

Financial Markets, Uranus Square Pluto

As we get closer to the aspect, Uranus Squared Pluto, many have been talking about, following is a little background.

From an astrological perspective this is a big deal. It is the waxing square between Uranus and Pluto. This cycle started in 1965/66 with the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto. Much press, well ink anyway, has been given to the negative side of this transit. The mainstream press doesn’t mentioned things astrological. That is not in public. They decry astrology as being old superstitious nonsense. When no one is looking they may check out the sun sign nonsense as published ever day in newspapers worldwide.

The exact square hits June 24, 2012. But this is the first square of seven squares. The dates are;
June 24, 2012
Sept 19, 2012
May 21, 2013
Nov 1, 2013
April 21, 2014 (watch this one)
Dec 15, 2014
Mar 17, 2015

All very interesting but what can we expect. Number one the dates are important but long term transits like this really colour the background of history for a number of years. Every once in awhile they become front page news. This will typically happen around the above exact dates and also when other planets or sensitive points pass over Uranus or Pluto in this case.

The latter is exactly what will happen on June 11 when Mercury first squares Uranus and later in the day opposes Pluto. On June 29 the Sun will oppose Pluto and square Uranus.

So what will we expect to see when the Uranus is in waxing square to Pluto. We’ve been seeing the results for some time. This aspect has a historical association between anarchic uprisings and problems with debt Look at Greece and the Eurozone. The current problems will be around for a few years.The debt issue will have major negative consequences for all financial markets.

Other events associated with this square are protest movements, social unrest and perhaps mob violence directed at banks and governments. Tax revolts fit in as well. Look for governments everywhere to take steps to protect themselves from their own people. Although Uranus is about sudden change and surprises, Pluto is about long term changes that will not be undone. It is ruthless in it’s force to change the status quo.

Since Pluto rules atomic energy expect, at the least, issues over atomic energy plants and at the worst……..

Both planets are in cardinal signs which means action here in the physical world. Uranus in Aries means it’s sudden, original eccentric, unconventional aspects will be pursued aggressively. Pluto in Capricorn means it’s penchant for permanent change at all costs will be carried out in a cold, calculating manner. Pluto is all about secrets and Capricorn is all about big institutions including governments and banks.

On the positive side this should be a time of advancement in technology and possibly alternative energy sources. Much may go on in this area which may not become public knowledge until after the square is complete. Thinking back to the mid-1960’s the internet was being worked and so were mini computers with the same technology that would be used for the personal computer. All of these did not become used on a broad scale until years later.

Natural disasters are another area that could increase. It has been increasing the last few years.

In addition to the Uranus Pluto waxing square we have Jupiter entering Gemini on June 11 and on June 12 Jupiter will pass over the point of the May 20, 2012 solar eclipse. We could go up near that date and then back down. 

As an intermediate term aspect Jupiter is in waxing square to Neptune on June 25 one day after the Uranus Pluto square is exact. Jupiter square Neptune can mean apparent or seeming happiness and speculation. It could be interpreted as gain without effort. Things aren't always as they seem. Jupiter is the greater benefict of all the planets, however, Jupiter is in it's detriment in Gemini and Neptune can be all about deceit and lies. Thus this signature is probably indicating a failure in speculation, a scandal (another one), loss and possibly political scandal.

Financial Markets, Astrology, Cycles June 2012

The markets have been volatile and that volatility is expected to pick up. This month has many significant astrological aspects including the long awaited Uranus in waxing square to Pluto on June 24. As stated before this aspect is the first of seven and will extend into 2015. There will be many changes and aspects of our world that will simply never be the same when these squares are complete.

These comments have nothing to do with the end of the world Mayan hype. Let’s remember the Mayans greeted the Spaniards as their returning serpent God. Reality quickly over came the Mayans as they were murdered and their wealth stolen. 

On June 5 Venus occults the Sun, a rare event. The few instances we can track do not seem to effect the markets. Medieval astrology noted the Venus occult the Sun often coincided with the passing of a world leader within a few days.

Nevertheless these are times when large scale changes will effect the earth and it’s inhabitants.

Having headed down for much of May, Lunar eclipses often result in short term reversals in the markets. The Lunar eclipse is exact approx. 7:11 am EDT in New York.  We may start a s/t reversal early on Monday. The moon is also perigee so watch out for geophysical events +- 3 days from June 4.

Also Monday June 4 Neptune will turn retrograde in it’s own sign of Pisces. The positive attributes of Neptune are idealism, spirituality and vision. The negative aspects are illusion, self-delusion, confusion and drugs.

In mundane astrology Neptune rules socialism, left-wing politics, secret plots, fraud, swindling, loss and vice. Watch out for any of these particularly some major fraudulent event and or cover up on a large scale.

Following is a daily chart of the SP500 showing what I’ll call a Fib expansion. These are the blue horizontal lines which are a fib retracement taken from point A to point B and the resulting fib retracement moved up to start at C. If we quickly get down close to 1264 Monday morning watch for a reversal..

The red vertical lines on this chart show a 224 td cycle. The square root of 5 is 2.23606. Moving the decimal point over by 2 we get 224. I'll just say sometimes these cycles work out. The next one is June 11.

Gold finally took off. We are in the 3rd week since what I feel was the primary cycle low on May 16. We are therefore due for a trading cycle. Be careful with Gold here, although I think Gold should trend up to mid-June, possibly around June 11, 12 where geocentric Jupiter  enters Gemini and Jupiter passes over the point of the May 20 Solar eclipse. Chiron also turns retrograde on June 12.

The following daily chart for Gold has a Fib time grid showing June 12 at 1.272 of the time from the Aug 23, 2011 high to the September 29, 2011 low. This chart shows the same relationship at July 25 where the factor is 1.618 and should mark a turn.

Similar to Gold the following daily Silver chart has a Fib time grid showing Monday as 1.618 of the move from April 25, 2011 to September 26, 2011. Watch Silver closely the next few days. Remember all dates mentioned are +- 3 days unless otherwise indicated.

The crude chart shows fib dates from the July 2008 high in trading days (987 td). This lands on June 11 +- 3 tds (there's that date again) and would be perfect timing for a primary cycle trough. The primary cycle is the nominal 18 week cycle. In the case of crude it is typically 15-23 weeks. As mentioned above Jupiter, the co-ruler of Crude changes signs geocentrically to Gemini on June 11 and Chiron turns retrograde on June 12.

General Comments
The Fed meets during the week of June 18 and Greece votes on June 17 so there will be many factors at play. Don’t discount a strong and fast reversal based on a news story that later turns out to be false.

I’ll write a separate post on the last week of June which has the Uranus waxing square Pluto and other transits making it an extremely important week for significant events.

The Uranus waxing square Pluto will have long term effects and has had a history of social unrest, violence, issues with debt and tearing down old structures that will be built upon.

With the perigee Lunar eclipse and other transits the possibility of strong geophysical events and problems with water, either by pollution or damage, is possible.

Mercury Conjunct Venus June 1, 2012

This should be an unusual day in the markets and possibly a low. Mercury is conjunct Venus in longitude and is parallel in declination. Both Mercury and Venus are out of bounds that is north of the Sun's maximum declination.

This may lead us to a low today or early next week as we have a Lunar eclipse on Monday June 4 and Neptune turns retrograde.
