Astrological conditions affecting stock markets combined with technical analysis

Stock markets have reached levels where we could now see the beginnings of a sustained rally, especially with astrological conditions starting to move towards more positive interpretations.

However, any rally will not carry all stocks sectors higher – and that could make for a patchy revival in some world indices.
We discussed a few weeks ago Kaye Shinker’s Jupiter research, which is outlined in her Textbook for Financial Astrology.
Basically, as Jupiter passes the 15 degree mark and prepares to go Retrograde, there will be a shift in emphasis … from resource stocks back to the financial sector. The information relating to this phenomenon was outlined in the report dated February 23 &

Last week’s action by the US Federal Reserve and other Central Banks was designed to show that they will stop at nothing to prop up the world financial system. The US Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, said the US “will do whatever it takes” to restore

Regardless of the exact news events which, prima facie, precipitate the markets’ actions, the astrology tells us all.
Gold, oil and copper have suddenly toppled from record highs. In truth, in technical terms, all three were showing parabolic rises which could not be sustained. The Federal Reserve has added some wholly unexpected rabbits to its bag of tricks to prop up the
financial system.

All of this fits with what we knew about the astrological conditions – the whole series of negative energy symbolised by the New Moon conjunct Uranus and opposed to Saturn, followed by Mercury and Venus also opposing Saturn last week.
Jupiter is nearing the degree where it will turn Retrograde, indicating that resources will fall off their highs – and that beaten down financial stocks will start coming back into favour.

There’s no point in befuddling our brains with the myriad expert opinions chattering from CNBC over this stuff. It happens – and it happens in the time frame the astrology says it will happen.

In The World report on March 8 & 9, I indicated my personal belief was that we were then seeing the worst of the astrological symbolism at work and from that weekend I was paying close attention for signs of a potential turnaround.

I was half-right and half-wrong. Some indices, like the DJI put in its closing Low on March 10; others attempted to rally, but made marginal new Lows during last week’s volatile reactions. I did warn that the technical indicators we review weekly did not agree
with my astrological interpretations.

In fact, I baldly stated: “Thus, consider yourself warned! The science and the purely technical say: Doom! Danger Dead Ahead!

In the end, however, the threat to liquidity (money) indicated by the basic symbolism of Venus opposed to Saturn worked out as we expected – because, as I explained in my tale of the Greek myths a couple of weekends ago, Venus (money) fell under some very special protection from the moment it entered Pisces and, for the first time in a long time, had more power than Saturn.
Well, the technical indicators are now starting to line up with the improving astrological energy – and we could be seeing the start of a rally. Initially, it should carry through to the end of the coming week – and potentially until the end of the first week of April.

It is also possible that we have seen the Low – until late this year.  If markets do find new Bull legs from this point, we can expect a massive sigh of relief all around the world and a lot of chattering about being pulled back from the brink of a
precipice and how everything in the future is sunshine, roses and lollipops.

That’s rubbish.  Later in the year, Jupiter will go Direct again and it will be time to get the hell out of financial stocks and pile back into resources.

A few weeks ago, I dealt at some length with Ray Merriman’s research about the impact on stock markets with Saturn conjunctions and oppositions to Uranus, and Pluto transiting a Cardinal sign.

A big, nasty, mean and vicious Bear is coming. Just, not yet.

We have had a taste of the symbolism Saturn opposed Uranus energy means – and it’s just a small taste, because, for most of this year Jupiter and Saturn are in a stabilising trine in Earth signs – and Saturn is also trined with Pluto.

The pullback in commodity prices will be very helpful to some indices – especially India and China, various other Asian indices as well as most Europeans.  It will be less helpful to the FTSE and the ASX 200.

Oil is another matter and I would have to study the astrology much more closely before venturing an opinion. It is possible we have now seen a generational High in oil prices. To many, the very idea of this will seem ridiculous.

Astrologically, however, Uranus in Pisces, the sign which rules oil, may have already provided the all-time peak price. A surprising technological breakthrough which eases our reliance on oil may be closer than anyone suspects.

I indicated last week we were starting out with Mercury and Venus opposing Saturn and moving onwards towards a conjunction with Uranus and that we “will see some volatile reactions to both the Fed’s decision and the results from the American banks”.
I also warned it was not yet time to pile on Long positions, especially with some negative technical conditions facing various Asian indices.

Well, we certainly got a dose of volatility – including a new spike high in the VIX, the volatility (or fear) index – with markets being whipsawed back and forth. And the Asian markets behaved as the technical indicators suggested.

But, I also made the point that the tide of astrological energy is beginning to turn towards more positive manifestations.
In the coming week, we continue to have a pattern of positive astrological energy mixed with negative.

Overall, however, the pattern is improving – with Jupiter making its first exact sextile contact with Uranus next weekend, just as Venus conjuncts.

The following week, astrological energy patterns seem a little less positive and Pluto is due to go Retrograde, which might precipitate some more angst about the financial system.

However, the energy patterns in play towards the end of April and into early May are of the type which are more supportive of rallies, rather than downturns.

Overall then, the long period of highly-negative astrological conditions is starting to ease, which should mean the negative mood which has kept stocks strongly constrained within horizontal bands, with a downward bias, begins to become more hopeful.
We should also take into consideration the size of the share price falls in many markets – with some stocks plunging 50% to 60% from the Highs of late last year.

Along with those Bear market drops, many individual stocks and indices, have hit precise Fibonacci retracement levels – the point from which relief rallies begin.

Despite the volatility of the markets last week, the technical indicators in many markets are starting to diverge positively from the price action – indicating we have been forming an important bottom.

We will have to monitor the situation closely for another couple of weeks but we are at last getting clearer signs that the overall forecast is starting to unfold – a Low in the early part of the year, followed by a run to potential new Highs which convince almost
everyone the Bear has been caged.
