Financial Astrology July 14, 2013

"It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards"
-- Lewis Carroll, The White Queen, Through the Looking-Glass

Looking at updated charts the index burst through the trend line and the Uranus / Pluto price lines. On the surface this looks like a very positive move. We are in the period of the grand trine between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. That's 3 of the 5 outer planets and a very rare configuration. I had thought looking at the recent history this would represent lies, deceit and corruption and it still might but we must consider the positive nature of any grand trine with Jupiter involved. Of course Jupiter could also represent things that are over done. Once this grand trine period is over we will be entering a period of much more dire transits with a T-square between Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto.

A reminder once again, all dates are +- 3 trading days unless otherwise noted. July 17 has the grand trine with Jupiter Saturn and Neptune, Uranus turning retrograde and Mars conjunct Hades. This could very well mark a top then generally down into the T square dates in August. This could stretch into July 19 where the Saturn Neptune trine is exact and one day away from the Mercury direct. This period looks like it will be quite volatile regrdless of what else is going on.

So I'm looking for a top then down in the indexes this coming week. Of course we have Bernanke talking again on July 17 to the House of Representatives and July 18 to the Senate Budget Committee. He has a history of moving the markets when he speaks, even when that was not the intention.

Later in the month I'm expecting things to turn more violent with Mars translating the Uranus / Pluto square.

Gold / Silver
Gold and Silver seemed to react well to the 225 cd (calendar day) cycle which hit on July 1st. It's possible we saw a long term bottom. This was recorded under the SP500 2 posts ago. To repeat "This cycle is based on 365 * .618 = 225 cd's or the square root of 5 which is 2.236, move some decimals and we get 224 cds. 225 is also the number of earth days to make one heliocentric rotation of Venus around the Sun".

This would only be the 13th week of the primary cycle and if it is a low for the primary it would be early. Watch these closely over the next few days. It is quite possible we make an intermediate high in the next couple of weeks and then a low for the primary in late July / early August.

Crude is in the 13th week of it's primary cycle as first noted on the June 9th post and has been a good money maker since. Crude has made a strong move, much of which is due to the troubles in the middle east. Technically it looks strong here and would have a ways to go in the primary cycle.

Astrology on the other hand may be pointing something else out. Crude is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter. Both are involved in the grand trine with Saturn on July 17 and then the Saturn / Neptune trine is exact on July 19. This is followed up quickly on July 20 with Mars emphasizing the grand trine on the same day Mercury turns direct. Mercury turned retrograde very close to the start of this move in crude.

In short although most of the technicals look bullish, the Astrological events point to a possible top for crude in this coming week or early in the week of July 22 where we have the super Moon on the Monday and Mars conjunct Jupiter. That said we will be coming into a period of possible violence, riots etc. around July 27 through the 31st as Mars translates the Uranus / Pluto square. If crude marks a top around the July 17-19 dates it could have a quick pullback that could be cut short by an outbreak of violence that sends it sharply higher towards the end of the month.

Both Jupiter and Neptune also rule natural gas. Technically there would be no reason to buy at this point but watch closely as the aspects may point to a move in natural gas as well. That would be a move up.
