Powell’s Horoscope Spells Uncertainty

Jerome Powell’s horoscope may be an essential part of making sense of Fed policy.

Transiting Neptune is currently in a long, slow conjunction with the True Lunar Node in the 1913 inception horoscope for the Federal Reserve Bank, so it’s not surprising to see lots of confusion about the Fed’s policies and intended actions.

The stock market rallied recently when the expectation spread that the Fed would be cutting interest rates by 50 basis points; then a string of new record highs was abandoned when Fed Chairman Jerome Powell showed some uncertainty.

The upcoming Poseidon station will be in opposition to Powell’s natal Jupiter, so he could rethink rates at least one more time.

And Jerome Powell’s horoscope also shows great potential for financial success as well. Check out this video for some comments:

Between The Eclipses

Right now we’re almost exactly halfway between the eclipses – last week’s big solar eclipse and next week’s lunar eclipse.

It’s an interesting time, one that’s packed with powerful potential.

As astro-traders, it’s important for us to remember that eclipses come with a great deal of regularity. In fact, it’s key for us to anticipate the next eclipse that’s coming up.

It’s why we’ve compiled a handy Eclipse List that’s worth keeping near your trading computer.

But the period between the eclipses can be very stressful.

It’s stress that can manifest itself in our personal lives. We can feel it in our work, in our relationships, and in our communities.

It can shake world events, producing overt hostilities and fresh confrontations.

It can impact the financial world. That’s why this is an important time to watch for actions by central banks and national treasuries.

The time between the eclipses can also move the markets in significant ways.

Our “Between The Eclipses” Webinar

That’s why we presented a special webinar yesterday on “The Markets Between The Eclipses”.

It was a unique opportunity to get valuable perspectives on this time of stress.

It also gave us an understanding of some of the unique benefits that come with the time between the eclipses as well.

If you missed joining us live, or if you want to review this information on the period between the eclipses, you can watch the entire presentation here:

By the way, the publication that’s mentioned in the webinar recording – “Wisdom and Warnings From A Solar Eclipse” – is available now. You can get it as an instant download from Harmonic Research Associates.

Report Helps Inform Events Between The Eclipses

As we discussed in the webinar, this brand-new e-book is an important tool. It’s useful for assessing the potential impact of the recent solar eclipse on a variety of markets around the world. It can also help with knowing ahead of time when to expect the biggest eclipse impacts.

They don’t all come at the time of the eclipse!

That’s why it’s so useful to have all the upcoming eclipse activations listed in one place. In the pages of this new eclipse report, you’ll find over 200 of them listed in chronological order, extending all the way until the end of October.

Why A Big Discount on This Stock Market Trading Guide?

The report I put together on 62 Stocks To Watch at the Jupiter-Apollon Alignment is practically brand new.

62 STOCKS COVER

In fact, it was just published a couple of weeks ago – it’s the result of the research I was doing into the best trading opportunities for stocks that are specifically impacted by the current Jupiter/Apollon waning square.

So why is it on sale from the publisher right now at a 72% discount?

Because I wouldn’t have it any other way.

First of all, it’s packed with practical information that can be turned into stock market trading profits, and a big part of my personal mission is to spread the word about the opportunities that await anyone who wants to apply astrology to the markets.

That includes small-scale, mom & pop investors who are up against the steam roller of the big banks, hedge funds, and behind-the-scenes market manipulators.

Secondly, I felt it was important to get this information out right now, since it specifically relates to the powerful Jupiter/Apollon alignment that’s currently driving the market action.

There will still be plenty of opportunities to take advantage of this situation as other planets trigger this alignment during the coming weeks and months, but you’ll have a distinct advantage if you get involved right now.

That’s why I wanted to get rid of any price barriers.

Finally, I wanted the price to be low during this limited-time sale (it ends on Monday) because this new report is not just a guide to current trading opportunities.

It also contains comments about the big-money forces that are driving the markets now, and I wanted to make sure that you got that perspective, too, even though it may not be 100% “politially correct”.

So the bottom line is that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this new report – in fact, it’s actually a bargain at the full retail price.

I just hope you’ll take advantage of the current deep discount to get a copy so you can get the full advantage for yourself.

The sale is on through midnight Monday night at:

How Will The Fed Impact Stock Market Trading?

In many respects the Federal Reserve has lost much of the mystery that made it the subject of seemingly endless attention and speculation by active traders and market pundits. The minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee meetings are made public, and Fed officials are often in the public eye, sharing their comments and perspectives on the economy and other matters.

But when we look at the astrological charts for the Fed, we open up the realm of mystery once again.

The current transits to the horoscope for the Federal Reserve, especially at a time like now when there’s an FOMC meeting going on, can tell us a lot about what’s going on behind the scenes.

Federal Reserve astrology - Mercury at the FOMC announcement on 18 June 2014
When we examine Federal Reserve astrology, we can learn a lot about important dates and events in the life of the central bank. The red pointer here indicates the position of transiting Mercury at the time of the announcement following the Federal Open Market Committee meeting on June 18, 2014.

For example, we can look at the transits for the announcement following the meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee on June 18, 2014 and immediately see the importance of the event, including its hidden significance.

Transiting Mercury conjoins Pluto in the Fed chart, activating the cardinal axis of the zodiac as it triggers the Fed Moon as well as the midpoints of Sun/Admetos, Mars/Chiron, and Kronos/Vulcanus. It’s thus clear that no matter what the Fed says in its announcement, there’s likely to be a powerful reaction.

Sometimes, of course, actions speak louder than words. That’s why it’s instructive to see the way that Mars, the planet of action, activates the chart for the Fed as well.

Federal Reserve Astrology - Mars at FOMC Meeting 18June2014
Federal Reserve astrology reveals even more when we examine other planetary pictures.The red pointer here shows the position of Mars at the time of the conclusion of the FOMC meeting on June 18, 2014. It activates significant midpoints in the Fed horoscope, including Moon/Saturn, Neptune/Midheaven, and Cupido/Poseidon.

The midpoints that get triggered here suggest that the responses to the Fed’s actions will be less than enthusiastic, so we could see some nervousness in the equities markets as a result.

We’ll have to wait and see what the complete reaction will be in stock market trading after the FOMC does its thing this week. But with the aid of the astro-trading advantage, we can get some insights that other traders lack!

Jupiter Threatens Deja Vu in Argentina

A horrific fire broke out Wednesday morning in the Barracas section of Buenos Aires, Argentina, destroying a warehouse building that housed the archived records of the Central Bank of Argentina. The blaze caused a wall to collapse, killing nine emergency workers and injuring several others.

The fire was so intense that it took hours to put out, in spite of the fact that 10 fire units had been summoned to the scene. But what was remarkable was the position of the transiting planets relative to the natal horoscope for the Central Bank:

When fire broke out at the Central Bank warehouse in the Barracas section of Buenos Aires on Wednesday, it just happened to destroy records that might have revealed international currency manipulations. The warehouse was managed by Boston-based Iron Mountain Inc., which stores information for more than 156,000 banks and other companies in 36 countries. Investigators blamed arson for fires at Iron Mountain warehouses in New Jersey in 1997 and in London in 2006. Note transiting Jupiter’s position in the outer ring at 11º Cancer-- this was the exact position of Jupiter on December 26, 2001, when Argentina defaulted on $93 billion worth of debt.

How About Some Good Old Hyperinflation?

More money for everybody!

That was the “selling point” that author Mark Dice used recently when he tried to get people to sign a tongue-in-cheek petition urging the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department to increase inflation to 100 percent a year.

The surprising– and disturbing-  result was that most people were more than willing to add their names to the list, displaying either a complete ignorance of what inflation really is, or a complete obliviousness to the devastating effects of hyperinflation.

Dice does have an axe to grind. As a conspiracy theorist, he writes about the evil influences of the Illuminati and international banking forces, and he’s out to demonstrate just how much their propaganda has turned the general populace into uninformed zombies who are willing to go along with any kind of ludicrous scheme, as long as it promises economic improvement.

Thanks are due to financial astrologer Bill Meridian, who shared a link to this YouTube video showing Dice in action, collecting signatures for a bogus pro-hyperinflation nonprofit group:

Don’t Blame Ben Bernanke

The mainstream financial media are giving Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Shalom Bernanke all the credit for the current stomach-wrenching plunge in the stock market.

When Dr. Ben talked about the Fed possibly “taking its foot off the accelerator” in its massive debt-buying program if the economy continues to improve (not to be confused, he said, with hitting the brakes), the mere thought of it was enough to send stock prices into free-fall.

At least that’s what the media have been saying. But the media always like simple stories and clearly-defined heroes and villains. So it’s not surprising to see the bearded professor getting the blame.

But as astro-traders we know better. As I’ve been pointing out repeatedly for some time now, we have in hand all the necessary ingredients for a major market sell-off, with the pressure intensifying in late June and early July.

My private clients and our members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com have gotten ample warnings of this bearish potential. We been adding short positions to the Financial Cycles Model Portfolio for the past several weeks, and we’ve ideas about specific trading strategies for the protection of trading assets.

At the beginning of this week, during my radio interview on Michael Yorba’s show, I helped Michael and our listeners pin-point the date to expect a market reversal– Wednesday, June 19th.

In fact, when Michael Yorba asked me if I thought we’d start to see some selling pressure on Tuesday, I emphatically told him that we should look for a downside move on Wednesday instead. (You can hear the complete interview by CLICKING HERE).

The triggering factor, as I explained to Michael, was not Ben Bernanke, but Jupiter’s unusual alignment with the Sun. (CLICK HERE for the full explanation of this remarkable event.)

I just figure that Jupiter and the Sun are both a whole lot bigger and a whole lot more powerful than the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, so why not give them the credit for the crash?

While a lot of investors were pretty upset when the sell-off started this week, the readers who were following our latest astro-trading strategy for asset protection had smiles on their faces. And those who got our report on “Protecting Yourself in an Irrational Market” had an opportunity to pull in extra profits from the market while everyone else was losing money!

By the way, the report on Protecting Yourself in an Irrational Market is still available, and the information it contains is still relevant, since there are additional challenges to the stock market coming up in July.

Behind a Transparent Curtain

It only took a few decades of incredibly dedicated work to accomplish, but Congressman Ron Paul has successfully shepherded his Federal Reserve Transparency Act through to approval by the full U.S. House of Representatives.

Here’s what the press release from Rep. Paul’s congressional office had to say about it late yesterday afternoon:

WASHINGTON, July 24 – Congressman Ron Paul today applauded the passage by the House of Representatives of H.R. 459, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act.  The bill, which calls for a full audit of the Federal Reserve System– including its lending facilities and critical monetary policy operations– passed overwhelmingly by a bipartisan vote of 327-98.

“I am very pleased that the House passed my Audit the Fed legislation today,” Congressman Paul stated.  “It has been a long, hard fight, but Congress finally is getting serious about exercising its oversight responsibility over the Federal Reserve.  Auditing the Fed is a common sense issue supported by the overwhelming majority of the American people.  The Fed’s trillions of dollars worth of asset purchases and its ongoing support of foreign central banks cannot be allowed to continue without Congressional oversight.  Today’s passage of H.R. 459 is a good first step towards full Fed transparency, and I hope that the Senate will consider the bill before the end of the year.”

Getting the bill through the Senate successfully and seeing it signed into law may prove to be wishful thinking, however, especially considering the extent to which many prominent Senators are joined at the hip to big banking interests. But getting the Audit the Fed bill through the House is certainly worth celebrating on its own.

All this brings to mind some of the reflections on banking, super-PACs, and the Wizard of Oz that I shared with subscribers at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com a few months ago.
