Financial Astrology - April 13, 2014

This weeks message will be short as we have covered the Grand Square in a number of previous posts. The markets have headed down. I'm expecting a bounce this week (subs have the date).

The teeth of the Grand Square are from April 20th to the 23rd but events can happen at any time. Unfortunately this won't be the last bad aspect. Although it is major, the Solar eclipse on April 29th  has a message of powerful actions and suggests great loss.

For eclipses the Lunar Eclipse before the Solar Eclipse, the energy is worse and dangerous. For eclipses where the Solar eclipse is before the Lunar Eclipse the energies are generally better. This time the Lunar is before the Solar. For 2014 the Solar eclipses are in the money signs of the zodiac. So we have a negative Solar eclipse in a money sign. Nuff said.

The last few years of Lunar and Solar Eclipses on the SP500 chart follows. The Lunar Eclipse could be a turn. Blue circles are Lunar and red circles are Solar eclipses.





In May Venus (rules money and resources among other things, like copper) will translate the Grand Square.

We have arrived at the critical time period. A serious geopolitical problem may be the best outcome and the Ukraine seems to be the main issue at the moment. With Uranus involved this could change to some other geopolitical issue or war or geophysical event quickly. You can't say we don't live in interesting times.

All normal market analysis may pale compared to the events just ahead. Astrology's strength is timing.

"Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied"
-- Leonard Cohen


SP500
We are down to the 50% retracement of the move up from Feb 5th low to the April 3rd high. See the following daily chart of the SP500. This is the 10th week of the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week but ranges from 15-23 weeks). The high was in the 8th week so pretty much centered. For the last few years the Primary cycles have been predominately right translated (high closer to the end of the cycle) which is bullish. This may indicate a bearish trend developing. For now just something else to watch.



Jupiter will be on the Invariable Plane (for Astrologers) starting April 16. It is part of the Grand Square and will square Uranus and oppose Pluto on April 20. Difficult news often comes out on the week end. I've mentioned numerous times Jupiter opposing Pluto is a classic bankruptcy signature and this has Uranus (sudden changes) in the mix.

As pointed out recently the Pluto price line (blue line) has acted as strong resistance.



Gold
The following daily chart for Gold does not look promising at the moment. I'm waiting to see the effect of the Pluto retrograde which often moves Gold forcefully. Give it 5 days either side. It can start long trends. I'm not ignoring the Ukraine situation that could drive up the price of Gold. Also remember the 13-13.5 cycle is due to trough out June / July this year.

Gold is currently in the 15th week of the Primary cycle. It was in the 10th week at the recent high which would be slightly right translated and bullish. Of course the Grand Square will have an effect so I'm in a wait and see.



I'm also watching copper. Wars need copper and it just made a long term cycle low. At least the old fashioned wars did.

Crude

I had mentioned Crude getting to the 105 area. Ignoring astros, Crude could either explode higher due to events in the Ukraine or the USA releases crude from the strategic reserve and brings the price down. Crude is in the 14th week of it's Primary cycle. So far it's top was in the 7th week so a little on the left translated side and therefore a little bearish for the cycle; however, as stated above it could explode higher.


The US$ looks ill.

From someone I have long respected.
"The corruption of the exchanges catering to high-frequency traders condones front running of public order flows by HFT (high frequency trading) computers tarnishes a once great history. Public investors are fleeing in droves for good reason. It looks like Wall Street owns its regulators & like public elites, never get prosecuted for their crimes. I'm disgusted with the moral degradation in a financial industry where I've spent the past 50 years of my life."

Update April 10, 2014

The danger period in the markets I have been mentioning for some time has started. From the last post "start heating up April 8 and forward "

We are going down but won't go straight down so expect volatility. The Feb 2014 lows are critical support that must hold or this will be very big.

The rest of the month will probably see a number of violent and unstable events. Don't count out large scale earthquakes, severe weather or other disasters.

Watch the US$.

Good luck and stay safe.

Financial Astrology - April 6, 2014

We won't rehash the forming Grand Square again, but will provide a summary and some new information. For new readers, many of the past two months posts, and older, have provided information on this unique Astrological event that was first suggested in the June 16th, 2013 post as follows.

"Longer term  I’ve been looking at 3 periods going forward where things look particularly negative from an Astrological perspective.

I will come with more exact dates as we approach those time periods and we see the price action going into them.

August 2013
Late October / early November 2013
April 2014 "

From the same post.

"April 21, 2014 (could be a doozy)"

It has been covered in some detail many times since. If interested you can use the search function on the blog and search for "Grand Square".

As this involved 4 planets two of which are the long term waxing square (Uranus and Pluto) it can effect a period of time around the April date. In fact we have already seen some events triggered by this powerful square.

1. Russia takes over Crimea
2. Strong Earthquakes
3. Volcanic activity
4. Separation is being discussed in a number of countries
5. The issue that I have mentioned a number of times is a change in the reserve currency of the world. Russia and possibly some other countries want to sell oil in something other than the US$. This will not happen quickly but events started in April may lead to changes in the reserve currency.
6. Hostile language between China and Japan and of course North Korea and other geopolitical problems.
7. Russia looking to buy crude from Iran in something other than US$ and possibly barter. Other countries may be looking at the U.S. reaction to this very closely.

I would expect more of the same. Don't discount terrorist activity or any of the possible events mentioned in previous posts. If this is a financial event / decision it may be hidden from the public at first.

Subscribers have the forecast dates and dates for the two eclipses in April. The potential effects of the Lunar and Solar eclipses are noted. Eclipses in general are good timing tools and point to further trouble down the road.

NOTE: I'll be adding Paypal and credit card purchases to the site before the 2nd Half of 2014 forecast dates are advertised sometime in May.

The four planets that are involved in the Grand Square are Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. I'm looking for this to really start heating up April 8 and forward into at least late April and possibly into mid-May. There may be decisions made that are not known to the public immediately (Again, I'm thinking currencies here).

Two of the four planets, Uranus and Pluto will have an exact waxing square. This is the 5th in a series of 7. The following daily chart of the DJIA shows the 7 occurrences (blue boxes). Four have taken place, then this one in April and then two more.



We continue to follow the 50% Fan line (blue) on the following daily chart of the SP500.



The SP500 briefly broke through the Pluto price line. This looks like stiff resistance around 1875-1880.


Caution is warranted. There may be extreme volatility ahead. Remember the FED did not see bubbles in 2000 or 2007. Following is a weekly chart of the SP500 showing the bubbles they could not see.



Gold
I follow market cycles, Astrological cycles and events and market technicals.

Looking at Gold market cycles I would expect Gold to be heading down into a 13.5 month cycle low in June / July. That said the Astro events we are about to experience may move Gold up, particularly the Pluto retrograde on April 14th and the violent signatures of the week of April 21.

We are in the 14th week of the Primary cycle and may have just bounced off the 50% retracement of the move up from Dec 31, 2013. If so expect the move up to continue this week.

I have mentioned debt as a possible problem coming out of this Grand Square signature. Since money is debt it could affect the US$ in a negative way and therefore be positive for Gold going forward.

The precious metals market is still being manipulated.



There were two positive Venus signatures recently. Venus rules copper. We may be seeing a bottom in copper. Watch closely next week.

Crude
Watch the $102 area. If broken we could move quickly up to $105. Re-read point 7 above. This could get wild.

Update April 4, 2014 Russia, Crude and the US Dollar

Ignoring the comments from the readers the following link is one of the things I've been concerned about in recent posts.

Update April 2, 2014

For those who have followed this blog for awhile I've been forecasting geophysical upsets in this time frame.

There should be more in April and May particularly around the Lunar and Solar eclipses and April 23rd.

These guys forecast these events years ago.

Financial Astrology - March 30, 2014

Grand Square
The period of time called a Grand Square or Grand Cross is upon us. Individuals should begin feeling the effects of the square starting approx. April 8 through early May. Individuals that have natal planets hit by this square will, at the least be very tense.  There will be great tension in the air as the four planets move into position.

To repeat the four planets with their approx. orbit length are

Mars                687 days
Jupiter             11.9 years
Uranus             84 years
Pluto                248.4 years

The slow moving planets typically have an affect for a long period of time and the faster moving planets have an affect over a shorter period of time. In this case Mars can be looked at as the trigger planet.

We may see a partial affect this coming week as the Sun aspects the three slower moving planets.

Subscribers have the forecast dates and dates for the two eclipses in April.

http://www.trading-daze.blogspot.ca/2013/12/2014-offer-key-dates-1st-half-of-2014.html

All four planets are in cardinal signs making the Grand Square more powerful and potentially explosive. Let me add Taiwan, Obama and Putin to the list of countries and leaders that may be affected (see the March 23rd post for others).

The Grand Square is composed of aspects to the four planets listed above. They are:

Mars opposition Uranus
Mars squared Pluto
Mars squared Jupiter
Jupiter squared Uranus
Jupiter opposition Pluto
Uranus square Pluto

Remember Uranus squared Pluto is the 5th of 7 exact squares that has been an on-going process for a few years. This alone is one of the most important aspects mankind can go through. You can search the blog for previous descriptions of this important aspect.

For Astrologers Jupiter and Pluto will be on the invariable plane axis later this month. This is one of the power points in the zodiac. Jupiter opposition to Pluto is a bankruptcy aspect.

The powerful energies of these aspects occurs over a short period of time and may affect much more than the stock market. The markets may be affected by a world event. This is a period when the markets could go really wild.

The above is an explosive combination. Astrology is all about energies. The basic energies of the planets involved based on mundane astrology follows.

Mars is about the military, attacks, oppression, assassinations, anger and violence. Explosions and explosives and fires are also Martian energies. It is also about courage and the use of energy. Currently Mars is in normally diplomatic Libra.

Jupiter is about the public faith and belief systems of the people. Judges, the court system, wealthy people, big business and pomp and circumstances. It also covers over-doing things and religious institutions, a nation's wealth, banks and bankers. Currently fervent Jupiter is in nationalistic Cancer.

Uranus covers science, technology, inventions and new things. Electricity, explosions, revolts, riots, radicals and all things nuclear (oh oh). It also covers fascism, sudden events and changes, things that are unique and astrologers, like me {^_^}. Currently Uranus is in assertive Aries.

Pluto is about wealth, power and the abuse of both. Manipulative leaders, espionage, secret police, torture, war, death and destruction. Things that are permanently changed. Waste and nuclear accidents are covered here. Also debt and taxes and powerful secrets. Currently Pluto is in governing Capricorn.

So this is difficult to forecast events with such a myriad of possibilities. Each of the planets energies are stimulated by aspects to other planets for the good or bad.

Summary
This could be a signature for war or rumors of war, either further activity in the Ukraine or another area of the world. If this is a market or financial system event it may be a decision made by financial powers that won't be disclosed immediately. In this time frame the G20 nations will meet (I believe April 11-14). Could a radical change to the world's financial system be on the agenda? Will we know all the decisions that are made? As noted above this could involve a major bankruptcy. Nation's can go bankrupt. This could also be a signature for a change in the world's reserve currency although I've been thinking this is a 2015 event. This should be watched closely.

I'll mention nuclear event but won't dwell on it.

Whatever happens over the next few weeks many people should feel the tension building up into it. This means there may be more than usual violent events that are sudden. This could also be a geopolitical event and with Uranus and Pluto it could be a geophysical event (earthquake, volcano). If it is something that will change the general belief system of the people, this may be the beginning of something more profound that could affect us for many years.

And of course, if this is the end of the world I want to be short.

Normal Post
Gold
This coming week may be good timing for a short term Gold / precious metal trade. April 1st has the Sun in waning square to Jupiter, April 2nd the Sun is conjunct Uranus and April 3rd the Sun is in waxing square to Pluto. All three aspects have a history of Gold turns.

We are currently in the 13th week of the primary cycle and topped out March 17th (we had forecast the 18th) forming a 1/2 Primary cycle crest. This often pulls back into the 38.2% - 61.8% Fibonacci retracement levels. The following chart shows we are at the 50% level and could reverse up at any point.



The reason I stated short term is we have Pluto turning stationary retrograde on April 14th. This is a powerful signature which often reverses the current trend. If Gold does not reverse higher before April 14th then it could be a longer term Gold buy signal. This is very close to the danger period so be careful.

April 1 is also the end of the heliocentric Venus pass through Scorpio. This is often a reversal in Gold.


 Copper may also be a good short term trade mid-week.

Crude
Crude is starting the 12th week of its Primary cycle and looks like it put in a 1/2 Primary cycle on March 3rd which troughed out very close to the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. Crude should work higher this week although I like the Gold trade better. Crude may hit resistance at the $102.80 level.

New Moon March 30, 2014 Update

On March 30, 1930 there was a New Moon in Aries almost conjunct Uranus. This was the first New Moon after the Vernal Equinox. 13 td's later the DJIA made a high that was not taken out until March 1, 1954. A full 24 years later.

On March 30, 2014, this Sunday there will be a New Moon in Aries almost at the same location as on March 30, 1930. It is also the first New Moon after the Vernal Equinox. It is also almost conjunct Uranus.
13 td's later will be April 16, 2014. Jupiter will be on the Invariable plane on that day. This is one of the power points in the zodiac.

There are a number of other similarities between the 1930 New Moon and the March 30, 2014 New Moon.

April 2014 is shaping up to be a dangerous month.

I'll cover the forming Grand Square in the week end post. I'll be hiding under the bed for most of April but I'm taking my laptop and cell phone.

Good luck.
