Massive internal pressure
continues to build in stock indices worldwide as the astrological
energy patterns compress within a tight time frame over the next
Key Asian markets began breaking
out to the upside last week as the Western indices exerted growing
pressure against the horizontal and downtrend resistance levels
defined by their plunges out of last year’s High marks.
As we enter another highly-charged
week, most indices continue to bump against the overhead resistance
levels – while the weekly charts are showing distinct signs
of a strong Bullish breakout.
The explosive energy patterns which
were primed last week with the Mars trine to Uranus, followed by
Venus in a T-square pattern with Mars and Jupiter gain even more
dynamite immediately ahead.
On Monday, in Asian markets, Mercury
will sextile Uranus, before advancing to trine Jupiter as the European
and American markets swing into action.
By Thursday, Venus will move into
her home sign of Taurus, forming a Grand Trine with Saturn and Pluto.
As next weekend starts, Mercury will
enter its primary home turf of Gemini before squaring Saturn …
and Saturn itself will go Direct simultaneously.
And, in the following week, Jupiter
will go Retrograde and Mars will change signs into Leo.
Saturn Direct, Jupiter Retrograde
and Mars changing signs are all market-moving aspects – and
especially so after a Mars/Uranus hit and a T-square involving Venus,
Mars and Jupiter.
In the coming week, the sextiles
and trines I’ve talked about during the past couple of weeks
continue to build a momentum for positive energy, especially with
Venus (money) entering her most benign symbolism in Taurus.
Mercury square Saturn we would normally
characterise as “bad news” – but in this case,
Mercury will make the aspect from its home sign of Gemini to Saturn
in Virgo, which Mercury also rules. Therefore, Mercury is King in
this circumstance, with the home
ground advantage of Gemini and effective rulership over Saturn.
I mentioned last week that Venus square
Mars and Jupiter, as Mars opposed Jupiter, created a massive fireball
of astrological energy.
There were two Mars-Jupiter oppositions
last year – and both were followed by a massive explosion
of stock market energy.
The first opposition came not long
after the big August spike Low – and combined with the other
astrological energy patterns at the time, soon created a fast and
The second opposition came in late
December – and immediately provoked the huge January crash.
And late last week, we got the third
opposition in this series – and once again the Dow Jones Industrials
index had its price on the day of the aspect exactly at the price
crossing point of the planetary aspect.
This is A Big Deal. If the DJI price
were far removed from the planetary action we would not expect an
explosive move imminently ahead. But everything that shows up in
the technical charts is confirmed by the fact the index price was
heavily involved with the
The lines calculated by Jeanne Long’s
brilliant concept of translating zodiacal planet positions to prices
show the amazing relationship between Mars/Jupiter and stock indices.
Notice on the left of this chart how
the DJI spent years trapped within a price range defined by the
two, blue Jupiter lines.
And notice how when the DJI finally
broke free of the Jupiter constraints its surge was contained within
two, strongly-rising Mars price lines.
When last August’s Mars-Jupiter
opposition sparked a rally, the price rose to the next Jupiter line
… the points marked with an encircled “A”.
Notice the B points. When the second
Mars-Jupiter opposition sparked a crash, prices dropped initially
to one Mars line … and then began rebounding from the next
red Mars line.
Point C is last week’s Mars-Jupiter
opposition … and we see the potential to go on another Mars
line rally, or to drop back within another Jupiter containment zone.
Before we get to the technical charts
of the various indices, I thought I’d show this chart. As
we all know, the Americans are in a depression about a recession.
Oil prices are driving them crazy … they can’t pay their
mortgages … their credit cards are maxed-out.
Well, their solution must be retail
therapy because this is a weekly chart of America’s biggest
retailer – Wal Mart.
Yes, the weekly chart. Yes, it’s
been going gangbusters since world stock markets collapsed and everyone
started the sackcloth-and-ashes Awoe! Alas! routine.
So, in a country where the University
of Michigan just reported the worst consumer sentiment readings
in 28 years, the number one retailer in the land has been in a confirmed
Bull market for months.
I’d use the word pathetic to
describe the “depth” of analysis applied to the US economy,
but it doesn’t convey enough contempt.
I won’t bore our international readers by putting up a chart
of Tiffany’s, but let me assure you it’s a whole lot
stronger than the DJI’s chart.
Okay, enough of playing with the astrological
spaghetti lines and bitching about the airheads who opine on TV,
let’s get to the techie bits. This is the DJI’s daily
and we can see the index now appears to be making a real effort
at breaking to the upside... click
