Three Planetary Stations In A Single Week

It’s a remarkable week we’re having, with three planetary stations in just four trading days.

The Saturn Impact

On Monday, May 11, Saturn began its retrograde motion at 01°57′ Aquarius.

It triggered the transiting Cupido/Admetos midpoint, prompting confrontations between opposing factions within communities, resulting in dire straights for the whole group.

Saturn also activated the Zeus/Poseidon midpoint to open up situations that are like to focus hard evidence and formal proof, revealing specific test results and bringing in expert testimony.

Think congressional hearings.

Venus Offers Creative Opportunities

Earlier today, on Wednesday, May 13, Venus went retrograde, too.

This Venus retrograde station at 21°50′ Gemini triggers the Sun/Zeus midpoint, promoting creative devotion in pursuing major goals.

In a crisis-driven atmosphere marked with political tension and public confrontations, a little creativity could go a long way!

Venus brings one of three planetary stations.
Venus brings us just one of the three planetary stations this week.

And, as our back-testing chart shows, Venus retrograde stations can also have a mildly bullish impact on stock prices, at least for a few weeks.

And Jupiter will get into the act tomorrow.

On Thursday Jupiter will go retrograde at 27°14′ Capricorn.

As it does so, it will activate Sun/Aries and Moon/Aries alignments. This could bring a massive burst of positive energy to promote a happy populace.

Even if that positive energy is based on misinformation.

So What About The Markets?

But what does it actually mean to have three planetary stations in a single week like this?

That’s what I talked with Larry Pesavento about yesterday.

We  had a great chance to chat during his Trade What You See show on TFNN. We had originally scheduled the session during our last conversation on May 1, when I shared a forecast for the S&P.

Talking With Larry Pesavento About The Three Planetary Stations This Week

Thanks to the universal disruption caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, the bandwidth for our conversation got a little sketchy at times.

But even though we had some problems with sound and internet connections along the way, the point still came across:

A week with three planetary stations is definitely a big deal.

Here’s the replay video. See what you think!

What’s So Different About Next Week’s Meeting of Jupiter and the Sun

Jupiter is nearing its annual conjunction with the Sun, and it’s attracting a lot of attention in the process.

A Sun/Jupiter conjunction isn’t a terribly rare event by itself– what IS rare this time is the fact that the Sun/Jupiter alignment will take place vertically as well as horizontally.

In other words, what we’ll be getting next week will be the Sun eclipsing Jupiter. As seen from our perspective here on Earth, Jupiter will be passing behind the Sun, coming less than a quarter of a degree away from the exact center of the solar disk.

That’s an extremely precise alignment, so it’s attracted plenty of notice from the astronomers peering through telescopes, although it hasn’t gotten much extra attention from the astrological community. Thanks to NASA and its Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SoHO), we got this coronagraph picture earlier today, showing Jupiter approaching the Sun.

Jupiter Approaches Sun
In this coronagraph, an opaque disk covers the body of the Sun, making it possible to view stars and planets that would otherwise be invisible in the solar glare. The bright spot to the left of the Sun is Jupiter, moving towards its solar conjunction on June 19.

When this photo was taken, Jupiter was about three and a half degrees away from the Sun. The conjunction will be taking place in late Gemini on June 19, just two days before the Summer Solstice. It’s already impossible to see Jupiter’s approach with the naked eye, however, thanks to the power of the solar glare.

That’s why it’s so wonderful having the SoHO photos and other NASA materials available– they not only take us past the realm of our astrological charts; they also take us far beyond what we can observe by just staring up into the sky.
