An Astrological Viewpoint of The World At Large for January, 2008
(an excerpt from the premium members report, The
World At Large, January 20, 2008)
by Randall Ashbourne
On Monday, January 21, 2008 at 4:14 am EST, we get
the first of the three Jupiter trine Saturn aspects occurring between
the Earth signs, Capricorn and Virgo. *
I dealt with the symbolism of this at some length
last week in my report, The
World At Large for January 12, because of the eons-old
link of these two planets in accurately depicting business cycles.
As we get to the technical charts later in this
report, we’ll see how very oversold many indices are. The
arrival of the trine should herald the start of a slow and steady
return to stability.
In truth we got a taste of that on Friday, January
18th, with the intervention of the White House, which is a very
The Fed is due to meet and the White House due to
make a “State of the Nation” address towards the end
of the month.
Because of these real world events, and significant
astrological happenings between now and early February, we have
some meaningful timing markers for potential stock market turns.
First up we have Jupiter trine Saturn.
Then, late in the week, we have Venus conjuncting
Pluto as both of them make the key sign shift from Sagittarius to
The following week, Venus (the sign of money) will
repeat Jupiter’s trine to Saturn, but Mercury will go Retrograde
and Mars will go Direct.
Then, on February 7, we have a Solar Eclipse.
Now, what all of this might mean …
is that we get the anticipated relief rally starting with Jupiter
trine Saturn … that the market doesn’t like what it
hears from the Fed or the White House (during the Merc Rx/Mars Direct
period) and plunges into the next sharp freefall … but is
pulled up short by the Solar Eclipse.
Or we could get the reverse scenario – starting
with an acceleration of the current nosedive in the next few days.
Probably, because of the technical condition, the
first scenario is more likely. What we do know for certain
is that every one of these astrological aspects is a market mover
– especially a sign shift of Pluto and a change in energy
output from Mars occurring simultaneously.
Which is why I warned last week that high volatility
and pessimistic prices could be the norm for weeks to come.
It is a time to exercise great caution with
any Long trades. A more stable, steady growth period is coming
soon; it won’t be exciting, but it will be more reliably profitable.
