November 22, 2012 and November 28, 2012 Lunar Eclipse

Over the next month there are a number of significant Astrological events which could affect the markets. I have been looking at these as generally negative but at the same time some of market cycles we follow would appear to be near troughs and thus should be headed up. My reading of this at the time of writing is we will hit some shocks which will knock the market down then it will go up only to go down again with a more serious low at the end of Jan’12 / early Feb ’13. This may change as the events unfold.

First the general Astro out look.

Starting tomorrow Nov 23 Mars will be in waning square to Uranus and begin it’s translation of the Uranus / Pluto waning square and then Mars conjunct Pluto on November 27 If nothing else this period should be volatile. The last time Mars translated this square was early August 2011. Remember any dates given are a minimum 3 +- trading days (tds). We are still in the time period for significant earthquake activity. Volcanoes to if you have been following that news.

One of the configurations present at the moment is Saturn in Scorpio and both Mars and Pluto in Capricorn. This means these planets are in mutual reception. Each in the others sign. Mars and Pluto co-rule Scorpio and Saturn rules Capricorn. This fact, taken by itself, means the mutual reception makes the planets named above stronger. In addition Mars is exalted in Capricorn, the sign of it’s greatest strength. Aspects to these planets will be stronger than normal. Mars conjunct Pluto is an aspect for war. Other principles would be aggression, assertion, leadership and inflammation. Pluto is the principle of power, both to destroy and to rebuild. Pluto demands change, permanent change. These two together could also signify a terrorist act. Pluto also rules debt so that subject may be back in the front page. Think Europe and pick a southern country. Debt can be for companies, banks or even governments entering a financial crises. For the markets, Mars conjunct Pluto is often associated with primary cycle (nominal 18 week) troughs within 6 tds. I’ve been looking at Nov 16 as a possible primary cycle trough.

Saturn in Scorpio creates tension. It is intense, compulsive, vindictive and secretive.
Scorpio covers others people money, death and taxes. Saturn is serious and initiates serious times. This combined with the Mars Pluto conjunction may make for a very serious and unhappy time next week. On Monday Nov 26 the Sun is in waning trine with Uranus which can result in volatility in the markets.

Also on Nov 28 there is a Lunar eclipse. This full Moon eclipse is in the Gemini, Sagittarius axis. It is located at Sun 6 degrees 46 minutes in Sagittarius with the Moon at 6 degrees 46 minutes in Gemini. This is a very interesting placement as there is a Yod formation on December 21, 2012 which has Venus opposite the apex of the Yod very close to 6 degrees Gemini. More about this Yod in a future post, but it is forming now with Jupiter at the apex and Saturn sextile Pluto. Those 2 planets are very strong right now (see mutual reception above. With Mercury turning direct near this Lunar eclipse could we be seeing some secret accidentally exposed. Treachery and terrorists comes to mind. 

Watch the news next week.Certainly Greek finances and the US fiscal cliff would fit the scenarios above. I'll be looking for natal charts of countries, leaders and events that tie into 6 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini. Planets in the early mutable signs can trigger earthquakes. I continue to worry.

November 20, 2012

The bounce may be over. Note the SP500 is once again at the 78.6% retracement.

Watch this area. It may go above the 78.6% retracement slightly. If it goes through with strength, substantial volume. then it could get back to the 127.2% area but I doubt it.

There are some tough astrological events right ahead. I'll post on Thanksgiving as it is not Thanksgiving where I am.

November 16, 2012

This would be a good place to see a bounce. Were at the 50% retracement of the move down from early April'12 to early June'12.

After the bounce, Astros look testy. Mars square Uranus on Nov 23 the Mars conjunct Pluto on Nov 27, one day before the Lunar eclipse.

Financial Astrology - Nov 12, 2012

A quick note. I'll fill in the details later.

I’m currently looking at a bounce this week (Nov 15,16) then down into month-end (Nov 22- Nov 29). Looking out further, up into Dec’12 then down for a major low late Jan’13 / early Feb’13.

At this point 2013 does not look good from a financial perspective. There is also the spectre of multiple larger scale earthquakes which of course will effect the financial markets but may result in much larger problems.

As the SP is not advancing into the Nov 9 date I am out of the trade which was looking for an advance then a hard down.

Earthquakes - Nov 13 Solar Eclipse

We've had a string of strong earthquakes today, the strongest being a 7.4 Mag in Guatemala.

As discussed a couple of weeks ago in the Nov 13, 2012 Total Solar Eclipse post strong earthquakes were expected around the eclipse. When looking at eclipse related events use a time period of +- one week as a minimum.

This whole period is ripe for geophysical stress but the following days may be more exact.

Nov 23-29, this obviously include the Lunar eclipse of Nov 28

Dec 13

Dec 21- 25, nothing to do with the Mayan forecast as far as I know.

The next couple of months worry me.

Financial Astrology - Nov 5

I'll wait until after the election to write a new post as the election has all the oxygen in the room at the moment. I won't wait for a final result if one is not given either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

I will say this. Neptune goes direct on November 11. Every time Neptune turns to direct motion the Sun trines Neptune approx. 19 days before (this time Oct 23) and the Sun squares Neptune approx. 11 days afterwards (this time Nov 22). If the markets go down at the Sun trine Neptune (which they did this time), the market often goes up for the Neptune direct date and then goes hard down. As the Neptune direct signature is 2 days before the total Solar eclipse of Nov 13, I for one plan to be out of the market on the preceding Friday, which is Nov 9. Note, if the market is not going up into Nov 9th then this trade is void.

In the mean time I wrote the following back in February about this time period.
