An Astro-Trading Oil Prices Chart?

As I noted recently in the latest installment of the Astro-Traders Tip of the Week, the big event that astro-traders need to keep an eye on right now is the conjunction of the Sun with Neptune at 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday night, February 25.

Potential EuroZone Confusion

This alignment will take place at 7 degrees Pisces, a position that puts it in conjunction with Saturn in the May 17, 1876 horoscope for the Amsterdam Stock Exchange.

While that connection suggests that we’ll want to watch for continuing developments in EU politics during the coming weeks, the Sun/Neptune combination promotes confusion and illusory thinking in general. This could mean some speculative opportunities that seem to be too good to be true (and probably are), along with duplicity, muddled market signals, and self-deception.

Why An Oil Prices Chart?

But Neptune is also traditionally associated with petroleum, so a horoscope for the conjunction tonight could in one sense be considered an oil prices chart as well.

The 90-degree dial presentation of the horoscope for the Sun/Neptune conjunction on February 25 can function as an oil prices chart if we pay attention to the midpoint structures.

The Sun/Neptune conjunction aligns with the midpoint of Chiron and Admetos, which suggests problematic circumstances with regard to basic raw materials, including petroleum. I noted the roles of Neptune and Admetos in a recent blog post on oil prices chart considerations.

Stressful situations like this one that include a Chiron factor often turn out to be blessings in disguise, however, especially for the financial players that have hidden interests or unexpected connections.

Note as well that the Sun/Neptune conjunction also activates the Hades/Poseidon midpoint (defective thinking, unclear communications, core deficiencies). There’s also an impact here on the Uranus/Apollon alignment (the tension of uncertainty impacted by sudden shifts in supply and demand).

Stock Trading Possibilities

While all these factors contribute to the usefulness of the Sun/Neptune conjunction horoscope as an oil prices chart, there are also opportunities for profitable stock market trades that accompany the Sun/Neptune conjunction.

As we noted in a recent article at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, “this planetary aspect typically follows an upward-trending market, which tends to culminate about nine or ten days after the alignment, prior to a strong sell-off.” That could offer some short-term trading opportunities now for savvy astro-traders – you can read about “The Sun/Neptune Conjunction and the S&P” HERE.

A View From Greece

A lot of people have been checking out the video I linked to here on the banking crisis in Cyprus and its impacts on global finance, along with the astrological perspectives on the situation. You can see it for yourself at http://marketastrologer.realbusinessresults.com/?p=726.

One of the strongest comments has come from Dionisis Panagopoulos in Greece, who wrote to say that “The only solution for European union is Germany out of Euro and devaluation of euro currency 50% down.

“Otherwise,” he said, “the fascism is coming.

“Greece was yesterday – Cyprus today. Who is next?

“Germany is the problem for EU. Not the other nations.

“FRANCE – ITALY – SPAIN YOU HAVE THE POWER . YOU ARE ALMOST 300,000,000 PEOPLE. How your factory will begin again producing? Only after devaluation of euro and only if Germany has got other currency in order to buy yours product. Not euro.”

While Angela Merkel isn’t likely to agree with Dionisis, his comment certainly underscores the big potential impact of the events in Cyprus. Remember that the astrological picture that lies ahead doesn’t look particularly promising.

Remember, too, that astrological indicators have given us advance warning all along about the emerging European crisis. In fact, it’s been more than three years since I posted this video about how the deteriorating financial circumstances in Greece had been triggered by a solar eclipse in 2009:

Cyprus Banks Get Whacked by the Mercury Direct Station & the W. D. Gann New Year

The government in Cyprus is scrambling to try hammer out a deal with European Unit ministers so they can arrange for a $13 billion bailout for the country before the EU’s Monday deadline.

If the deadline isn’t met, the country’s financial system could collapse, dragging much of Europe and even other parts of the world down with it.

As things stand now we’re highly likely to see the Forces of Reason and Make-Nice Public Relations prevail, so I fully expect to see some kind of settlement announced before tomorrow morning.

But whatever the settlement details are, it’s likely to wind up being a bogus deal, since the astrology that’s active behind the scenes doesn’t favor long-term resolutions right now. Even so, this is a critical situation to keep an eye on, since it could establish a precedent that allows governments around the world to confiscate wealth from depositors’ bank accounts, undoing 80 years’ worth of formal and informal banking policies that protect deposits in times of financial crisis.

It’s also important to realize that this is not a short-term crisis that we’ve encountered here; it’s implications are likely to play out for the next several years at least.

Here’s a video that provides some additional background and reveals the most critical dates to watch over the next 18 months:
