Financial Astrology Feb 23, 2014

SP500
This blog changed on Jan 1, 2014 We will no longer provide turn dates for the SP500 as these are being sold for the first half of 2014 see -> 


We are finally arriving at the critical time frame discussed for some time. As we have already covered the reasons in some depth we will just summarize the coming two weeks. There are a number of market analysts now stressing the coming couple of weeks and the last half of April, we identified these periods last November 2013 in our forecast dates. This is the power of using Astrology as part of your market analysis.

Next week and for a number of weeks afterwards Uranus is stressed. Uranus is the planet of the unusual, innovation, technology and sudden changes. This could equate to sudden moves up or down and large price swings. With Uranus involved expect the unexpected.

Being in square to Jupiter this should exaggerate any move and should be buoyant and confident or overdone. As discussed this square is aspecting the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter. This should give the powerful square even more strength. Uranus takes approx. 84 years for one orbit but Jupiter zips around in approx. 11-12 years. Following are daily charts with Jupiter on the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter. They re highlighted with black circles. The last one is a 3 pass due to retrograde motion. The current one is a 3 pass as well. Feb 26 this week is the middle square of the 3 pass with the final square in April when the powerful Grand Square is highlighted. With Uranus involved in the square I really do expect the unexpected.






With stocks, Gold, Silver Crude, NatGas, softs and others all going up it's time for a surprise.

Although next week looks like prime time for a reversal in many markets it could extend into the following week before a pullback, where we start multiple retrogrades.

Gold
Although I think Gold and Silver are in a bullish position intermediate and long term, I also think we are due for a pullback shorter term. I've been looking positively at Gold and Silver since my January 5, 2014 post. I was looking at mid to late March for a pullback but now considering next week. Bear in mind Uranus is a key planet over the next couple of months so unusual and fast events can take place. PM's could go down then up quickly.

On Feb 23 the Sun is conjunct Neptune which has a history of turns in PM's (precious metals) both up and down. Crests within a couple of days and troughs further out, within 7-8 tds. On March 1st Mars turns retrograde. This has a history of sharp turns in Gold and closer to the exact date. In addition to the above the powerful Jupiter waxing square to Uranus takes place on Feb 26 (see above). This square is also in orb of Pluto making this a T-square with Uranus being the major planetary point of the T-square. This is happening while geocentric Jupiter is on the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter making this aspect more potent. Uranus is in Aries, a signature which coincides with rapid changes, rioting and outbreaks of political tension. The latter can be seen in the Ukraine, Venezuela and Thailand.

From the last post remember Uranus just entered the second decant of Aries which is ruled by the Sun which rules Gold. Uranus in Aries should also manifest technological changes and energies which overturn and transform existing structures and ways of thinking. This is also a time for the potential of new scientific discoveries. The discovery may take some time to be recognized. The fact that Uranus will be in exact square to Pluto in April should emphasize changes to governments and political institutions around the world. Of course an attack on the internet is possible as well but I'm looking towards the April time frame for that type of event.

On the following daily chart I was expecting Gold to test the highs in late October 2013. I'm now looking at this as a failed test. If Gold does turn down in the next week or 2 watch it closely as it will have the potential of a quick reversal but I'm looking for an eventual low in June then up.


Crude
Crude has made a strong but somewhat unexpected move. This is due, we are told by mainstream media, that this is due to cold in the winter. OK

Looking back a few days crude was hitting resistance around the Pluto price line in the following daily chart. It broke through on the day the Sun price line (green) crossed the Pluto price line.

We are now just above the 50% retracement of the move down from late August 2013 to early Jan 2014. I often look at the 38.2% to 61.8% as possible resistance. We are due for a pullback in crude and we have two crude related aspects that could initiate that move on Feb 23 (Sun conjunct Neptune) and Feb 26 (Jupiter waxing square Uranus).

Astrology Update - Feb 19, 2014

In November 1989 with Jupiter retrograde at 10 degrees of Cancer freedom came to Europe with the fall of communism on Nov 9, 1989. In 1989 Jupiter was opposing a Saturn / Neptune conjunction in Capricorn. The months leading up to November 1989 Mars was in Libra.

I had thought this trouble was going to come out in France but it appears to be Kiev. Jupiter is again retrograde at 10 degrees in Cancer. Geocentric 10 degrees Cancer is conjunct the heliocentric North Node of Jupiter making it quite powerful. This time it is being squared by radical Uranus in Aries with a loose opposition to Pluto. Mars is again in Libra.

Uprisings in Venezuela and Thailand as well. There is revolution in the air during this Jupiter / Uranus square, which is exact on Feb 26. Planetary configurations are eerily similar to the Sept. 1929 and March 1930 period.

A reminder to the world. We need to fight for freedoms.We just need to make sure we are on the right side.

PS
While we are at it here. The SP500 high so far was on Jan 15, 2014 at 1850.44. On that date there was a Full Moon at 25CP58. That's 25 degrees in Capricorn 58 minutes.

On Feb 27 Venus will be at 25CP58. This is the day before Mercury turns direct and the day after the Jupiter waxing square to Uranus. The Lunar eclipse on April 15 will be squaring these degrees.

Next week looks quite wild and probably much more than just the stock market.

SP500
This blog changed on Jan 1, 2014 We will no longer provide turn dates for the SP500 as these are being sold for the first half of 2014 see -> 


I should say we are entering one of the most dangerous periods of the year. We have significant dates stretching from late February to late April 2014. The forecast dates supplied should identify the significant swings and or lows. Our first major date was Jan 20, 2014 and it identified the sharp slide into early February.

This same period from February to late April 2014 could see increases in earthquakes and volcanic activity. Social unrest, resistance and war or rumors of war could also be on the agenda. The likelihood of these events increases in April 2014.

The major market indices took off this week as did PM's. The SP500 for instance has entered a new Primary cycle and is 2 weeks along. Some say it was a big short squeeze. This could have had an effect but I don't think this is based on the bull $hit government economic indicators. It looks like there are traders who believe tapering will be cutback and the FED will retain or increase QE. This would fit with the sharp move in PM's as well. It would also fit with reality where unemployment is far higher than government stats and the economy, if growing, is doing so at a snails pace.

I haven't trusted government indicators for some time and believe what were free markets have become manipulated to the point where reliable indicators are no longer useful. What can't be manipulated is the movement of the planets so I look there for direction. They can be delayed by the man-made actions but they cannot be changed permanently.

Two longer indicators that are affecting us right now are:

Uranus waxing square Pluto
This is one of the most powerful aspects in our Solar System. By long term, the last time these two planets were in waxing square was in the 1876.. period. For any long term transit it is beneficial to examine the current synodic cycle. In this case the cycle started with the conjunction in the 1963-1969 period. This was a period of social unrest and the masses were unhappy with their government both in the U.S. and other countries. This should sound familiar with the problems unfolding today. One thing that is being emphasized in this long term square is debt, Government debt, company debt and personal debt. The 1960's period was also a period of great technological advances, although they did not manifest for a few years afterwards many of the computer innovations were created during the 1960's period.

We can expect great technology advances being created during the current waxing square. They may not be evident until the square is complete and may wait until around the period of the Jupiter / Saturn "Mutation Conjunction" in Aquarius, an Air sign. More on the "Mutation Conjunction" in a future post.

Following is a weekly chart of the DJIA. The blue squares are the seven exact squares but the aspect is active the whole period. It is highlighted by aspects hitting it and other phenomenon.

Jupiter waning trine Saturn
The following weekly chart of the DJIA shows the current Jupiter waning trine to Saturn (geocentric are the 3 circles in light blue) (heliocentric, single dark blue circle). This is the last major aspect of this planetary pair before the important "Mutation Conjunction" coming up in 2020.

As we did with the previous planetary pair, looking back at the synodic cycle, the conjunction occurred on May 22, 2000 very close to the top of the dot com bubble in the stock market.

Shorter term
We should keep in mind Mercury, the trickster, is retrograde and Feb 17 is the half way point of the Mercury retrograde cycle. Mercury went retrograde on Feb 6th the day the markets took off to the upside. The market may being pushed up, into option expiry (OPEX), this Friday Feb 21. Mercury turns direct again on Feb 28.

Within the first 6 days of March we will have 4 planets either turning retrograde or direct. In addition Venus will be back at it's shadow date on March 4th.

This should equate to a volatile environment. We could get some strong pullbacks and reversals. Watch early next week as the Sun changes signs on Feb 18th into Pisces.


Gold / Silver
Gold is in either it's 2nd or 7th week of it's Primary cycle. As expected (see the last couple of posts) the PM's have turned very bullish. This ties into the general market indices shooting up.

This is the type of activity I would expect if traders are expecting a reversal of the FED tapering or even a full return to QE. How many people really believe the US economy is improving and jobs are being created. Never mind the bs statistics coming from government sources and reiterated by a mindless media.

I'm watching the Oct 2013 highs, to see if price can break these levels. Overall this looks very bullish for PM's here, however, lets remember they have been manipulated down fairly dramatically over the last few months. I'm in and holding but on guard for potential manipulation.


Crude
Crude is still bullish at the moment as the 15dma is above the 45dma and price is above both. This is either the 6th or 14th week of the Primary cycle; however, crude has stalled over the last 5 td's unable to take out the Dec 27, 2013 high and stuck on the Pluto price line. See the following price line chart. Seasonally crude should be starting up in late Feb / March.

There are two significant Astros for crude coming up. Feb 23, the Sun conjuncts Neptune and Feb 26 Jupiter squares Uranus. Either one of these aspects has the potential to move Crude. Logically one would think up but I think the Pluto price line on the following daily chart will tell the tale. If it breaks down from the Pluto price line there may be cheaper crude when spring driving commences. This assumes people still have money for gasoline and a car.



NatGas
I'm watching the price action to see if there is more energy behind this surge. Like crude the time period around Feb 23 and Feb 26 should be significant and may deterime if this rally continues or reverses.

US$ 

I have concerns about the US$ but looking for the March / April time frame to assess where we are. The US dollar could come under extreme pressure which would affect many markets.

Financial Astrology Update Feb 13, 2014

I'm looking for an Astrological aspect or configuration which could trigger a reversal since bad market news only sends the markets up.

Tomorrow Friday Feb 14 Uranus enters the second decant of Aries or 10 degrees of Aries or 10AR00. This is also a full Moon.

Although Aries is ruled by Mars the second decant of Aries is ruled by the Sun. The Sun will be changing signs on Feb 18 into Pisces, the next trading day.

Uranus entered Aries on March 11, 2011. On that date Japan had the devastating earthquake and tsunami. It should be noted the outer planets crossing any Cardinal points like 00AR00 are more powerful / significant than most points and typically more powerful than the decant entry points. Nevertheless this can mark a significant event.

I'm looking for trouble in the markets closer to the end of the month so tomorrow or next Tuesday, Feb 18th. could be the start of a move, and I'm looking for a move down in the general market indices.

The big money boyz may try and push this into Opex, Feb 21, but aspects or events associated with Uranus tend to hit suddenly.

Heads up on any earthquakes or geophysical events.

Financial Astrology - Feb 9, 2014

SP500
This blog changed on Jan 1, 2014 We will no longer provide turn dates for the SP500 as these are being sold for the first half of 2014 see -> 


I should say we are entering one of the most dangerous periods of the year. We have significant dates stretching from late February to late April 2014. The forecast dates supplied should identify the significant swings and or lows. Our first major date was Jan 20, 2014 and it identified the sharp slide into early February.

This same period from February to late April 2014 could see increases in earthquakes and volcanic activity. Social unrest, resistance and war or rumors of war could also be on the agenda. The likelihood of these events increases in April 2014.

Gold
Gold is in the 6th week of the Primary (nominal 18 week) cycle. As such we are looking for a crest and down into the trough of the first Major cycle (nominal 6 week). It is possible the very shallow pullback into Jan 31 was the Major cycle trough where Gold broke below the 15 dma. Gold has spent some time going sideways and needs to break through the descending trendline (blue) on the following daily Gold chart. If we haven't had the trough Feb 10-12 would be good timing to see it. Both Gold and Silver have been crawling sideways which sometimes results in a sharp move, and quite possibly up as they appear to have been basing, especially Silver.



I should point out in the longer term Dec 31, 2013 was the 25 week low and it was a retest of the 4.25 year cycle trough on June 28, 2013. These points are what are making me look for a positive outcome in the short term. We should be near the beginning of the 4.25 year and 25 week cycles. The next 25 week low cycle puts us in June 2014. This is close to the seasonal sweet spot for Gold and we should be going up from there. Remember my comments about Mercury retrograde and Gold from last week. I'm still looking at Jan 27 as the crest of the Major cycle (nominal 6 week). 

What happens in between? I'm looking for a lower high in Gold and PM's in the late March 2014 time frame then down into a low in June then up. In between these dates if war events are transpiring or conclusive evidence that Gold has been manipulated or physically not there, it could jump quickly. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but something does not add up with Gold prices. Following is a weekly chart of Gold. The red vertical lines show the 25 week cycle and the red double arrows near the end of the prices is a 3 pass of the Mars / Uranus opposition.




Don't forget, we have a couple of more Silver dates from last weeks post. I don't think they will be as strong as what we have witnessed.

Silver
Silver looks like it is basing. The following chart shows the Venus price line (green) and Jupiter price line blue. Silver continues to meander around the Jupiter price line and obviously needs to break out. Breakouts often happen (up or down) when the Venus, Jupiter price lines cross. The next Venus Jupiter cross is March 7, 2014. Somewhat later than I have been anticipating. 

As mentioned under Gold these types of formations can result in a fast pop up or down. Time wise we are due for a move up, so it could be sharp and it could be early next week.





Crude
Crude moved further up than anticipated. The following daily chart for crude certainly looks like the Primary cycle trough was on January 9 and we are therefore in the 5th week of a new Primary cycle which looks bullish. The 15dma just crossed up through the 45 dma and price is above both. I was looking for the high on Dec 27 as being firm resistance but now I'm not so sure. I need to see more price action to determine the trend. If we are now in the 5th week of a new Primary cycle then the 7th week will be starting Feb 24, in the middle of our panic low with 2 major aspects which could affect crude and Natgas. They are the Sun conjunct Neptune on Feb 23 and Jupiter waxing square Uranus on Feb 26. Jupiter and Neptune both rule crude and NatGas.

Following is a daily chart for crude.



Looking at a daily crude chart with both the Sun and Pluto price lines, crude has just arrived back at the Pluto price line (black). Notice the last time it attempted to cross over this line it could nor stay there for more than part of the day. A strong move through this line at almost exactly $100 would be very bullish for Crude. Obviously a fail would not.



NatGas
I'm continuing to watch NatGas. Like crude it went up further than expected and may go much further. Various pundits and media types assume crude and Natgas are going up because it is a little colder this winter. And they get paid for this information. "Cold in the winter".


US$ 

I have concerns about the US$ but looking for the March / April time frame to assess where we are. The US dollar could come under extreme pressure which would affect many markets.

Financial Astrology - February 2, 2014

SP500
This blog changed on Jan 1, 2014 We will no longer provide turn dates for the SP500 as these are being sold for the first half of 2014 see -> 



Gold
Gold is in the 6th week of the Primary (nominal 18 week) cycle. As such we are looking for a crest and down into the trough of the first Major (nominal 6 week).

Looking for Astrological aspects that may identify precious metal moves Feb 5 Jupiter trine Chiron and
Feb 6 Mercury stationary retrograde. The Mercury retrograde aspect does have a history for precious metal moves and is often found within a few days of a Major cycle. This could be a crest or a trough.

This week then we could have either a Major cycle crest close to Mercury retrograde on Feb 6 or it is a trough, in which case PM's would continue down.

I'm looking at Jan 27 as being the crest of the first Major cycle in the Primary cycle which stated on
Dec 31, 2013 and I'm looking at Feb 6, Mercury retrograde, as close to the trough.  This means we should be going down to start the week and looking for a trough somewhere in the Feb 4- Feb 11 range. I suspect it will be this week or Feb 10. I'm erring on the positive side as I still think the Dec 31, 2013 retest of the June 28, 2013 low makes this a very positive time for Gold as we are early on in a new 4.25 year cycle.

The following daily Gold chart shows the Mercury retro (red arrow pointing left) and Mercury direct (blue arrow pointing right). The blue resistance line is currently close to the 1260 resistance level.



If we put in a Major cycle low this week or Feb 10 it would be s/t positive for Gold. Silver's chart is not nearly as positive and it typically leads the show when PM's are going up.

The 27 td (trading day) cycle is due Feb 10 which would support a Major cycle low on Feb 10 or +- a td or 2.



The following daily Gold chart shows fib retracements (blue) based on Gold's move down from Aug 28,2013 to Dec 31, 2013. Watch for a breakout either below 1240 or above 1277.



Silver
Last weeks Silver dates were right on and a real quick money maker for those that got in and out quickly. There are some similar dates coming up for Silver though they are not as strong. They are Feb 5-7, Feb 13-14 and Feb 18.

The following daily chart for Silver shows the Venus price line (green) and the Jupiter price line (blue). Silver could not hold the Jupiter priceline which is quite negative for Silver.



Crude
Crude is either in the the 4th week or 10th week of a Primary cycle. If it's the older cycle at the 10th week then the cycle is quite bearish as it is already lower than the start of the cycle. This needs more time to watch the price action. Watch for a break below 91.24 (bearish) or a move above 100.13 (bullish). Astro wise we don't have many meaningful Astro aspects until the last week of the month.

I suspect we will get a number of lower highs making this bearish but no positions presently. If we test the 100.13 level and fail, moving down we may be more interested in a small position. If this is the 10th week this will be very negative for Crude which may see it declining into March or April.


NatGas
Like Crude there are no significant Astros for NatGas until the last week of February. We have just had a spike high. I'm watching volume on the decline with particular interest around the 50% and 61.8% price retracement.



US$

I have concerns about the US$ but looking for the March / April timeframe to assess where we are. The US dollar could come under extreme pressure which would affect many markets.
