Zeus Retrograde Triggers Potential Trading Top

The Zeus retrograde station on January 20 was an extremely powerful event.

Its effect on the market was muted slightly because it happened when the markets were closed. U.S. markets were shuttered on Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

But holiday or not, this transneptunian shift is likely to usher in lower prices ahead.

It reinforces the bearish energy of the Uranus station at the January 20 Lunar Eclipse.

Trading Action Since The Zeus Retrograde Station

On January 21, the S&P 500 lost 0.27% as trading resumed after the Zeus retrograde station.

So far it’s a net loss of 0.13% since last Friday’s S&P close at 3329.62.

That’s hardly a major crash, of course.

But it’s starting to look more and more like a definitive trading top.

Keep An Eye On The Trading Action

The prospects will be clarified by the trading action just ahead.

If the sell-off is amplified or becomes more sustained, we will consider this top confirmed.

That means we can look for even lower stock prices ahead.

As we see it now, there could be a significant decline running through the end of February.

And we can thank the Zeus retrograde station for getting it going.

Broader Implications Feeding Market Expectations

And that’s not all.

Zeus Retrograde 2020
The January 20, 2020 Zeus Retrograde Station on the 90-degree dial.

As you can see from the 90-degree dial presentation of the Zeus retrograde station, other factors come into play.

The station activated the midpoint of Mercury and the True Lunar Node. That signals a time of creative thinking and inventiveness.

Maybe even a new way for dyed-in-the-wool bulls to start thinking about market direction in a new light.

The Kronos/Vulcanus midpoint also got triggered by the Zeus retrograde station.

The implication here is the excessive expression of the powers of the state. It’s all about politics, with the notion that ruthless politicians manage to have their way, no matter how much effort it takes.

That kind of struggle is clearly being reflected in the current impeachment trial of U.S. President Donald J. Trump.

As we’ve noted earlier, the public political wrangling has very broad implications, in and out of the markets.

No matter what the ultimate outcome is, the ongoing turmoil is likely to a real impact on the markets.

 

 

Impeachment Horoscope

We don’t get many chances to check out an impeachment horoscope.

The U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Donald J. Trump on two articles last night after days of wrangling and debate.

There’s been a lot said about the divisiveness and acrimony surrounding the the whole process.

It was, in fact, quite a show. There were plenty of wild scenes and memorable characters along the way.

I suppose we could spend time running down some of those rabbit trails.

But I actually don’t want to go there. Not for now at least.

The Impeachment Horoscope

You see, what’s really interesting to me as an astrologer is the impeachment horoscope.

As I was saying, it’s sort of a rare critter.

Trump is only the third sitting U.S. President get impeached in the entire history of the country. And that’s exactly why this kind of chart is so rare.

Even so, I didn’t expect this horoscope to be quite so striking.

A mundane chart like this, a horoscope of a geopolitical event, can give us remarkable insights into the ultimate hidden significance of the action taking place.

This chart is no exception.

I timed it based on the moment that the electrically-recorded vote in the House passed the threshold needed to carry the motion on the first article of impeachment.

Here’s what it looks like:

Impeachment Horoscope

I’ve labeled some of the key points for easy reference.

Point A is quite striking. Transiting Uranus, the planet of explosions and surprises, was right on the Midheaven at the time the vote passed. That’s a prominent position.

When Uranus was first discovered in the late 1700’s  it was a time of revolution, most notably in France and America.

So Uranus is associated with revolutions, upheavals, and the overthrow of kings or other governmental leaders.

Transneptunian Factors

In this case that planet’s energy is amplified in a T-Square pattern with two transneptunians.

Uranus is square Vulcanus (B) and in opposition to Apollon (C).

Vulcanus is connected with coercive action or an extortionate “offer you can’t refuse.”

Apollon says that this event has a widespread impact, affecting the lives of many people.

The revolutionary theme is picked up by the Moon (D – representing the people as a whole) applying to a tension-provoking square to the Sun (E – representing the ruler).

But what’s really most intriguing is the action at point F. The Part of Fortune, an indicator of true happiness and fulfillment whose position changes minute by minute, conjoined the transneptunian Poseidon at the time of the impeachment vote.

Poseidon is about higher ideals and inspiration.

So it’s an unexpected signal.

The vote in the House was historic.

The conflict was evident.

But it was also a time of ultimate fulfillment.  And perhaps even more.

Maybe the birth of new spiritual ideals.
