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.

Oil Prices Today & Tomorrow

So what’s really going on?

Have we seen a true bottom in oil prices today, or is the current upward movement just a sign of a dead-cat bounce?

That’s the topic of a feature article in the current issue of FinancialCyclesWeekly newsletter – it not only talks about the situation in oil prices today, but also reviews the potential for oil trends during the coming months.

Trade ETFs To Play Oil Prices Today

Although Crude Oil Futures grab most of the headlines when it comes to news about oil, remember that you can also get into the trading opportunities offered by oil prices today by getting into oil-based ETFs.

The ETFs don’t offer the same kind of leverage that futures contracts provide, but if you choose your ETF wisely you can still get a lot of bang for your buck, especially if you see that oil prices today are trending strongly.

USO Tracks Oil Prices Today
This trading chart for the USO ETF closely follows the current trend in Crude Oil, since the price of the ETF each day is based on what happens to oil prices today in the futures markets.

For example, United States Oil Fund Limited Partnership (USO) trades on the New York Stock Exchange as an ETF, providing good liquidity and a low barrier to entry for small-scale speculators looking for a play in the oil market, since it closely tracks the trading action in Crude Oil Futures.

The trading chart above shows the way that geocentric Mars and Admetos in the ninth harmonic work together to structure support and resistance in the market action in oil prices today, as reflected in the trading for USO.

Bring On The Transneptunians!

It’s interesting to note the role of the Transneptunian Admetos here.

Many financial astrologers associate the planet Neptune with the oil industry.

They aren’t wrong in doing so, but at times this astrological signature can limit their thinking.

If the observation of planetary factors ends there, it can actually become an obstacle to developing an assessment of oil prices today and a forecast for future trends.

Admetos is connected with raw materials in general, and can be a critical factor in assessing supply-and-demand questions. So when we look at it along with Mars, we can get a pretty good picture of some of the key forces behind oil prices today.

What Do Midpoints Say About Oil Prices Today?

The Mars/Admetos midpoint also figures prominently in the First-Trade horoscope for USO. It’s easy to see its importance on the 90° dial.

Oil Prices Today - USO FT Dial
If we want to figure out what’s going to be happening to oil prices today and in the future, a very good place to start is with the 90-degree dial for USO.

The First-Trade 90° dial for USO shown here reveals the potentially dramatic effect that we may see with Neptune’s retrograde station coming up on June 12, 2015.

The red arrow on the right side of the dial is the position of the Neptune station, which will trigger Moon/Venus, Mars/Admetos, Neptune/Kronos, and Jupiter/Node midpoints in the USO First-Trade horoscope.

This midpoint zone is extremely sensitive, and needs to be watched closely in forecasting oil prices today or at any future time.

By the way, this same midpoint zone has been repeatedly impacted by eclipses in recent years, including the solar eclipse on January 15, 2010, the solar eclipse on June 1, 2011, the lunar eclipse on October 18, 2013, and the lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014.

During the coming years we’ll also be watching the solar eclipse on September 1, 2016 and the lunar eclipse on July 16, 2019 and potential triggers for the oil market as well.

Perspectives from Top Financial Astrologers

When I was in Philadelphia last weekend to speak at the NCGR conference, I had a great time sharing some of the results we’ve been getting here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com with astrologers and traders who wanted to know more about how planetary cycles really work in their impact on the markets.

It was also an excellent opportunity for connecting with some of my colleagues and good friends who are part of the financial astrology community, including Grace Morris, Arch Crawford, Georgia Stathis and Christeen Skinner.

As always, they had much to share about events in their lives and businesses, and it was fun sharing perspectives on the markets.

Georgia Stathis, for example, said she was expecting a big impact on the equities markets when lunar eclipses hit the natal horoscope for the New York Stock Exchange in October of this year and April in 2014. I’ll be keeping them in mind as  I prepare the next couple of monographs in our ongoing series on Solar Eclipse and their Impact on the Markets.

Arch Crawford said he’s watching the remaining iterations of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square as possible turning points in the markets. He’s also keeping an eye on sunspot activity.

“Based on my analysis of electron flux numbers,” he said,  “it looks like natural forces are trying to take the market down, but the governments of the world are doing everything in their power to keep the markets up.”

Always inclined to take a bearish stance, he added that “I don’t know how much longer they can keep on doing that.”
