Financial Astrology - Sept. 1, 2014


SP500
We are entering the 4th week of the Primary cycle which started on Aug 7th. We often get a more minor pullback 2-3 weeks into a Primary cycle (trading cycle) but it has not appeared at this point. The SP500 basically went sideways last week.

 SP500

 DJIA



The next period to watch is for the first Major cycle (nominal 6 weeks or 5-7 weeks) of the new Primary cycle.  This would mean a low in the weeks starting Sept 8 through Sept 22. This coincides with the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle which the subscribers have had for some time. This needs a range of +-1-2 weeks.



Look at that cycle closely and note some have been at highs. This is an example of inversion when a cycle ends time wise but ends at a high instead of an expected low.

As noted in a previous post the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle is equal to the orbit of the planet Venus. See the last letter for more details.

-----------------------------------------------------
A point on the Primary cycle and the patterns that compose the Primary cycle. There are three basic patterns.

1.) Primary cycle (nominal 18 week) composed of three Major cycles. The ideal would be 3 Major cycles (6 weeks) and therefore a total of 18 weeks. This is the most common and the easiest to interpret.

2.) Pattern2 is the most rare and is composed of 2, 1/2 Primary cycles. Here you will find a trough in the middle of the cycle approx. at 9 weeks.

3.) The third pattern, the combo pattern, is the most complex and happens quite frequently. Here we have 3 major cycle and a 1/2 Primary cycle low in the middle of the Primary cycle. These can be confusing.

Any one of these patterns can become distorted particularly near the end of the cycle.

Knowing where you are within the cycle and how that market has been behaving at each phase is critical for successful trading using cycles. An understanding of the cycles and then where the significant Astros take place can fine tune your buys and sells.
-------------------------------------------------------
I bring this up now as the Trading cycle has been absent so far and the general market indices very bullish. This can mean we are looking at pattern 2, that is 2, 1/2 Primary cycles.

The fact that many analysts are calling the markets manipulated we must still work with what we are given.

The hard war aspects between Mars and Saturn have just passed but I would expect the fog of war to continue for some time. The Mars Saturn aspects in August will be replaced by a building stress between Pluto and Uranus that are an exact waxing square on Dec 15. This is a very long term aspects and I give it +- 1 month in orb. Descriptions for the Uranus / Pluto square were given last week.

The month of September has two very powerful aspects.

Late in the month there is Jupiter in waxing square to Uranus. This has a history of being the strongest aspect when it comes to trend changes in major US indexes.  This needs an orb of +- 2 weeks. Jupiter square Uranus can stand for good fortune, the desire for knowledge and a love of freedom. It can also stand for a tendency to miss the best chances or oppourtunities and getting involved with arguments specifically on questions of life-philosophy / religion. Oh Oh.

Late in August the Sun opposed Neptune, another very powerful aspect which needs +- 2 weeks, to affect the US indexes. It also has a history of showing up at changes in trend in precious metals. The Sun in opposition to Neptune can equate to weakness, sensitivity and people easily influenced by others and at times, a negative attitude towards like. Illusion and delusion may play a role.

Earlier in the month we have Jupiter quincunx Pluto, also a long term aspect and is more potent than usual as it is close to Pluto turning direct. Earlier in the month there is also another perigee Full Moon. I expect more violent weather, floods and an uptick in more powerful earthquakes and volcanic activity. Jupiter quincunx Pluto can stand for difficulties while striving for power.It can stand for the pursuit of fanatical aims and desires and can stand for the loss of social standing and loss of wealth.

The week of Aug Sept 22 has a number of Astrological aspects pointing to issues with the US$. Subscribers have the dates. Not the least of these is Pluto at 10 degrees 59 minutes in Capricorn. This is conjunct the heliocentric Jupiter nodes and is a powerful point in the Zodiac.

In summary we may see a Major cycle low in the weeks of Sept 15 and Sept 22. If we don't see a low in that time frame look to the week of Oct 6th where we may get a 1/2 Primary cycle low. This is the start of eclipse season with a powerful Lunar eclipse on Oct 8 and a partial Solar eclipse on Oct 23rd.

Following is a daily chart of the DJIA and recent lunar and solar eclipses. The blue squares are the Lunar eclipses and the red squares are the Solar eclipses. Notice that they are often near turns, not always, but enough to trade. I'll go into more detail on the upcoming eclipses in future posts.



Gold
Gold is in the 13th week of it's Primary cycle  It is close to 1280, the number I was looking at for support. We did peak below but not on strong volume.

Geocentric Mars is in the tail of Scorpio and moves to Sagittarius on Sept 13th.
Heliocentric Mercury transits through Sagittarius starting Sept 5th. This has a history of strong moves in PM's both up and down.

If it's going to move it had better start very soon. It did get support at the bottom of the symmetrical triangle (see blue lines on the following daily Gold chart). Will it test this area again or go up from here? Watch Gold closely. We may get an initial strong move close to Sept 5th which possibly fails.


Silver is in the 14th week of it's Primary cycle. If Gold does not look positive, Silver looks worse. We may be near a 1/2 Primary cycle so like Gold, watch Silver closely next week.


Crude
We are in the 18th week of the Primary cycle in crude. The current cycle appears to be very left translated which is bearish. There is much going on with crude and the US$. A stronger US$ is not good for crude, at least WTIC.

We may have just seen the Primary cycle low.. We may now see a rebound into 96.80-97.30


On a longer term basis, Crude could drop from 105 - 85.00/CL in the 4th quarter of 2014

Financial Astrology - August 24, 2014


SP500
We are entering the 3rd week of the Primary cycle which started on Aug 7th. We often get a more minor pullback 2-3 weeks into a Primary cycle (trading cycle) so watch for that this week. The DJIA is also in week 3 of it's Primary cycle.
 SP500


DJIA 


For the SP500, a move down to the 1959/ESU area would mark the trading cycle mentioned above, while a break below 1938/ESU would signal the start of a more significant move down.

The next period to watch is for the first Major cycle (6 weeks or 5-7 weeks) of the new Primary cycle.  This would mean a low in the weeks starting Sept 8 through Sept 22. This coincides with the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle which the subscribers have had for some time. This needs a range of +-1 to 2 weeks.



Look at that cycle closely and note some have been at highs. This is an example of inversion when a cycle ends time wise but ends at a high instead of an expected low.

As noted in a previous post the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle is equal to the orbit of the planet Venus.

Also 365 earth days * .618 = 225 and
The square root of 5 = 2.236
slide the decimal 2 positions = 224
and 1.618 * 1.382 = 2.236
slide the decimal 2 positions = 224

There are many Fibonacci relationships when looking at time, both in calendar days (cd) and trading days (td).

This week continues with more hard transits including Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio on Monday August 25th.

From last weeks subscriber letter.

" The following Monday, Aug 25th, has Mars conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. As has been stated this is a war aspect. Mars is the co-ruler of Scorpio along with Pluto. I've also mentioned Saturn transiting through Scorpio has a history of epidemics."

In addition, Aug 25th is also 1,998 cd's (calendar days) from the March 6, 2009 low on the SP500 which was 666. 1998 = 666 * 3. Watch this date.

The Mars, Saturn conjunction has been building for some time. After the conjunction it will slowly start to fade with Mars leaving Scorpio into Sagittarius on Sept 13th. Unfortunately it will soon be replaced with the Uranus / Pluto waxing square which will be exact in December. This is the square that has been affecting the world since June 2012. Due to retrograde motion it will be exact 7 times between June 2012 and March 2015.

Following is a daily chart of the DJIA showing Uranus Pluto square (red squares).



From the June 9, 2012 bog post. Yes that's a 2012 blog post.

"Long term transits like this really colour the background of history for a number of years. Every once in awhile they become front page news. This will typically happen around the above exact dates and also when other planets or sensitive points pass over Uranus or Pluto in this case."

" This aspect has a historical association between anarchic uprisings and problems with debt. Look at Greece and the Eurozone. The current problems will be around for a few years. The debt issue will have major negative consequences for all financial markets.

Other events associated with this square are protest movements, social unrest and perhaps mob violence directed at banks and governments. Tax revolts fit in as well. Look for governments everywhere to take steps to protect themselves from their own people. Although Uranus is about sudden change and surprises, Pluto is about long term changes that will not be undone. It is ruthless in it’s force to change the status quo."

This is the square that occurs after the two planets were in conjunction. Uranus and Pluto were conjunct in the mid 1960's. That period had social unrest. Uranus in Aries is about freedom while Pluto is about the status quo although Pluto does represent long term change and change that can't be undone.

On the positive side this should be a time of advancement in technology and possibly alternative energy sources. Much may go on in this area which may not become public knowledge until after the square is complete. Thinking back to the mid-1960’s the internet was being worked and so were mini computers with the same technology that would be used for the personal computer. All of these did not become used on a broad scale until years later.

From last weeks market letter.

"So we have wars, epidemics and starvation we're missing geophysical disruption (earthquakes and volcanoes). The latter may wait until the 2nd half of September or the yearly Eclipse season in October."

As suspected volcanic eruptions started in Iceland this week.

There will probably be other geophysical events starting anytime with an emphasis around the Eclipse dates and when the Uranus, Pluto square become more exact. Other dates of interest would be near Sept 22 and Dec 21.

SP500 Summary
The exact Mars Saturn conjunction on Aug 25th is a war aspect. That is not to say war is starting, it's already here in a number of hot spots.

Aug 25th is also 1,998 cd's (calendar days) from the March 6, 2009 low on the SP500 which was 666. 1998 = 666 * 3. Watch this date.

Aug 25th also has an apogee New Moon. We often have violent weather with this aspect including flooding.

This week Venus (agreements) will transit over Mars and Saturn during the week of Aug 25th ending with a Sun opposition to Neptune.

Venus can represent agreements in mundane Astrology. Venus squaring Mars and Saturn in Scorpio (secrets) could mean the agreements are short lived and we fall back into a state of disappointment. On Aug 29 the Sun is in opposition to Neptune (illusion and delusion) and is quintile (72 degrees) Saturn.  Could a secret be exposed?

Someone may not follow through on the commitments they have made. The same day the Sun will be quintile Saturn. Sun / Neptune aspects are often found near changes in trend for Gold and longer term trend changes in stock indices.

Watch this closely near the end of August. This could involve world leaders and looking at all the transits from Aug 18th to the end of the month this could be showing a secret scandal that is exposed. There's a lot of phone tapping going on. Perhaps something get's to a news source that is willing to report it. Let's remember Mars and Saturn are transiting Scorpio. Among other things like debt, taxes, death etc. Scorpio rules other peoples money, be it the stock market, insurance or pension funds or other peoples debt's since money is debt.

From a market letter a few weeks ago.
"This would also cover regime changes or changes in borders."

Note what has happened in Iraq with Maliki stepping down and ISIS stating they will create a new caliphate.

Watch for secrets which are exposed or problems with other's peoples money. Hopefully not mine? :)

Gold
Gold is in the 12th week of it's Primary cycle and may be sinking fast. It is close to 1280, the number I was looking at for support. We did go below 1280 but not on strong volume.

We've been waiting for a move up in Gold mainly based on Mars transit through Scorpio. The recent price activity is not positive for the increase we have been expecting. Mars will be existing Scorpio on Sept 13th. Gold needs to break through 1316 for any sign it is advancing from here.

Gold is currently in a symmetrical triangle. Watch for support here. The Sun opposition Neptune on Friday, August 29th is often a trend reversal in precious metals.




Silver is in the 13th week of it's Primary cycle. If Gold does not look positive, Silver looks worse. We may be near a 1/2 Primary cycle so like Gold, watch Silver closely next week.



Crude
We are in the 17th week of the Primary cycle in crude. The current cycle appears to be very left translated which is bearish. There is much going on with crude and the US$. A stronger US$ is not good for crude, at least WTIC.

All these problems are occurring around the dates we sent to subscribers a few weeks ago. The dates concerned crude, countries producing crude, agreements between these countries including crude production and changes in head's of state of crude producing countries.

Previously I've mentioned the issue with the US$ and international trade being largely conducted in US$ for many decades. There may be problems with the US$ in September. I've be supplied subscribers with the dates.

Timing wise I'm looking for a bounce in price for WTIC, then down into the Primary cycle low witch could be as early as the first week in September.
