Financial Astrology, Forming YOD, December 21, 2012

Note: This post has little to do with daily stock market movements.

This post will discuss the forming YOD between Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. I look at such configurations as having an effect over a longer period of time and it is when some other planet or point aspects the YOD that it is activated. Normally YOD’s between slower moving planets, such as listed above, are rare occurrences. Surprisingly, in this case, a very similar YOD took place around May 22, 1989. More on that shortly but first here is what a YOD looks like. I have drawn up both charts used in this post with a New York city location even though I live in Canada.

A YOD occurs when at least 2 planets sextile one another while both quincunx  a third planet. The third planet or Apex of the YOD

In this case Saturn is in sextile to Pluto. Currently these two planets are also in mutual reception, that is, each in the others rulership and therefore making each other stronger than usual.

Both of these planets are in quincunx (150 degrees) to Jupiter which is at the Apex of this YOD. To highlight them the three planets are in blue circles on the above chart.  A quincunx is an aspect which shows where things don’t work well together, they are off balance and a choice must be made. The two planets may not inhibit the other but will not work well with each other. Undisciplined thinking is common.

Pluto represents wealth and power (old money), things in life which are hidden, violence and transformation. Change which is permanent and final. Pluto is in Capricorn and therefore currently affecting big business and any large organizations like the government, religious organizations. Saturn represents the status quo, public sorrow, loss and threatening epidemics. Saturn is in Scorpio where it may be more intense than usual and perhaps best described as cruel.

Jupiter represents a nations wealth, banks and bankers, the religious and judicial world, the justice system and prominent judges. Jupiter currently is in Gemini the sign of its detriment, where it operates with the least strength. Jupiter is going to have the energies from Saturn and Pluto bearing down on it through the quincunx aspects. Jupiter known as the greater benefict may have trouble assimilating these energies. The negative side of Jupiter would be over doing a response to the energies. These energies are the energy of the power of large entrenched organizations and that do not want to change. Through this YOD change may be coming but it will be difficult and perhaps overdone. A choice must be made. Retaining the status quo is a choice.

The point opposite the Apex pinpoints where the new orientation will center itself. In this case it is obvious from the chart above that Venus is opposing the Apex. At approx. 7 degrees in Sagittarius. What is not obvious is this point is very close to the position of the Sun during the last Lunar eclipse at 6 degrees 46 minutes in Sagittarius. This YOD should be very powerful.

It is said the energy coming Saturn and Pluto go to Jupiter then all the energy comes back to Venus opposing the apex. So we may have something coming up which is related to the wealth or resources of a country. Could it be the fiscal cliff issue currently being negotiated. Could be, but who said it was the U.S of A. Venus also relates to issues of peace and diplomatic resolutions. There is a certain violent and secretive nature to this YOD.

The next week or so should see the results of this YOD materializing. Look for isues involving large organizations been pressured to change or move in a direction they do not want to go. Jupiter will flavour this energy and I suspect it will be over done. With Saturn public sorrow is already with us with the recent killings in Connecticut. The move to curtail gun sales is already on the move before few real facts have emerged. Are prescription drugs at all an issue with the killer?

As noted above the previous YOD involving these planets was around May 22 1989.

Some interesting events around that time were;

i)                    The Speaker of the House in the U.S. Congress resigned May 31, 1989
ii)                   The Tiananmen Square massacre June 4, 1989
iii)                 There were a number of US / Russia / China issues which may come to the fore once again in 2012.
I'm looking for the same themes to emerge again.

Financial Astrology December 10, 2012

When I first looked at this week I thought it would be the start of a fairly significant downtrend. I’m still expecting such a move but probably a few weeks later with a larger low late January / early February 2013. The upcoming week looks very volatile with the possibility of a smaller down move than originally anticipated.

The following chart shows the primary cycle (nominal 18 week cycle) put in a low on Nov 16, 2012. This was actually an extended primary cycle as it was 24 weeks from the primary low on June 4th. Cycles are normally bullish at the beginning and therefore, based on this cycle, it would look like more upside in the SP500 based on this cycle. Other factors point to a pull back.

It appears Gold and Silver made primary cycle lows on Nov 5, 2012 and Crude on Nov 7, 2012.

Beyond the market cycles mentioned above this coming week has a number of significant Astros. Monday evening Dec 10th the Sun will be quintile Neptune (a Quintile is 72 degrees) and has had a recent history of strong down moves. The following chart shows the Sun Neptune Quintiles (red circles). The chart also shows Mercury transiting through Sagittarius (blue x’s). Mercury in colourful energetic Sag can result in big price swings in many markets. There is another cycle hitting on Dec 10th as well. I’m just mentioning this as I’m still testing it’s consistency.

On Tuesday Dec 11th Mercury squares Neptune. This is almost the same position it held at the Nov 13th Solar eclipse. This can mean a number of things, lies and deceit seems to be emphasized.Since we brought up lies and deceit there is a FOMC meeting ending Dec 12 with the chairman speaking around 2:00pm. This could tie into the Uranus direct and unsettling news.

On Dec 13 Uranus turns direct. This signature can result in wild price swings in many markets. As usual give these aspects +- 3 td's. Watch all markets you are interested in but particularly Gold and Silver and currencies. This signature should be emphasized as there is a New Moon in Sagittarius as well.

There are a number of other astrological aspects next week. One I have shown before is the 3 cycle Heliocentric Mercury chart. That is every 3rd cycle of heliocentric Mercury when Helio Mercury is in Virgo (see green x’s on the following chart) the market often goes down around the time Mercury exits Virgo (see blue circles). Helio Merc leaves Virgo Dec 10th this week. Sometimes it takes a week or so but very consistent.

We are still in the time window for Sun spots and significant earthquakes / volcanoes. The time period around Dec 21st has a number of Astros with a history of geophysical stress. Most of December a Yod is forming between Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. Yod's involving slower moving planets don't appear that often. This one also has Venus opposing Jupiter at the apex. More on this in the next post as it appears to be a very important aspect.

The Yod looks like this.
