Astrological conditions affecting stock markets combined with technical analysis

Massive internal pressure continues to build in stock indices worldwide as the astrological energy patterns compress within a tight time frame over the next two weeks.

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.

DJI Daily with Jupiter-Mars lines

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 hard rally.

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
astrological aspect.

DJI Daily in Jupiter range

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.

Wal Mart Weekly chart

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 to view the chart and download the entire Adobe PDF file
