Transneptunian One-Two Punch

The transneptunian one-two punch is making its presence felt.

But it’s understandable if you weren’t fully aware of what’s really going on.

Here’s the story.

Stocks put in a strong showing today. The rally was based on the potential for a US-China trade agreement.

At least that’s what the mainstream financial media would have you believe.

But for the most part they ignore the astrological dynamics behind the scenes. That’s where the real action is.

From the astro-trading perspective, we’re viewing things a little bit differently.

When Hades and Kronos slug it out, we can feel the impact in the markets!

The surge in stock prices coincided perfectly with the big Transneptunian One-Two Punch that we’ve been forecasting.

The Transneptunian One-Two Punch

What’s that all about?

Two transneptunians, Hades and Kronos, are now in the midst of back-to-back retrograde stations.

That’s an extremely powerful event.

We’ve been expecting it to have a big impact on the markets. Not just on stocks, but precious metals, bonds, futures, currencies and more.

We explored all the dynamics of this powerful event – including proven back-testing results – during our live training webinar a few days ago.

This advanced training session was all about The Transneptunian One-Two Punch.

It was an 88-minute event packed with valuable information you can use in your own trading right now.

We had a big crowd and great participation – it was a highly energized training event!

It truly set the stage for today’s big close to the trading week – and for the more challenging market action that lies just ahead.

Presidential Election Deception?

What have you heard lately about the presidential election?

Probably a lot.

The news media have been ignoring lots of significant world events lately.

They’ve been choosing instead to devote boundless attention to the U.S. presidential election circus.

And what a circus it is!

The never-ending stream of Republican debates.

Primaries and caucuses.

The latest attack ads and dirty tricks.

And, of course, the latest antics from Donald Trump.

Who Will Win The Presidential Election?

That’s the most popular question, needless to say.

But asking it now is at least a little bit premature.

After all, the voting for the presidential election isn’t soon. It’s still more than eight months away.

The major parties haven’t finalized their nominees yet.

But forecasting is what astrologers are supposed to do.

So let’s review a couple of astrological approaches to figuring out presidential election outcomes.

Astrological Approaches To A Presidential Election

There is, of course, the date of the presidential election itself.

This year it will be on November 8.

We can study the planetary positions for that day, and get some sense of the alignments that may impact the presidential election results.

But the challenge is, the polls are open for a presidential election in the U.S. for many hours. The voting results span many time zones.

That makes it difficult to pinpoint accurate astrological charts to use in forecasting.

A more direct approach, one that is preferred by many excellent mundane astrologers, is to use the time of the presidential inauguration.

By law that’s set for noon on January 20 following the outcome of the presidential election.

A comparison of that inauguration horoscope with the natal charts of presidential contenders often yields useful information.

The Aries New Year and The Presidential Election

There is, however, one additional consideration worth looking at.

It’s the New Year’s horoscope.

In this case, we’re not looking at January 1.

Instead, it’s the astrological New Year, the time that the Sun goes into Aries.

That’s the Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere.

It’s the Fall Equinox down under.

When we set that Aries ingress chart for Washington, D.C., we get an annual figure to use in forecasting the entire year ahead for the U.S.

That includes the presidential election.

To do so, it’s helpful to use the 90-degree dial favored by symmetrical astrologers.

presidential election axis at the equinox
The annual horoscope, set for the Aries equinox, highlights the potential for the presidential election when we examine the Node/Zeus axis.

On the dial, we can adjust the pointer to identify the axis of the True Lunar Node and the transneptunian factor Zeus.

This Node/Zeus combination is the astrological signature of cooperative actions in general, and of elections in particular.

And, as the 2016 equinox dial reveals, that Node/Zeus axis is potent.

It resonates strongly with the Pluto/Chiron midpoint (problems and embarrassment created by big money and excessive power) and the Neptune/Vulcanus midpoint (large-scale deceptions and disappointments, plus significant loss of power).

It’s fair to say, then, that we can expect gut-wrenching experiences as we move through the presidential election cycle throughout 2016.

There’s obviously much at stake here.

This presidential election has the potential for shaking up conventional political and governmental structures in some very big ways.

Steps Along The Way

We’ll wait to speculate about the winner of the 2016 presidential election. The right time is after the major political parties have selected their nominees.

And we’ll review the election results when they come in.

But in the meantime, we can use the Node/Zeus midpoint in the Aries equinox chart as a key tool.

It’s an indicator of the important times we should be watching for key developments in the presidential election process.

The planetary transits to that Node/Zeus midpoint are especially critical.

We can look at them not only as direct passages, but also as eighth-harmonic alignments.

For example, there was an activation by Mars on February 10.

That’s when both Carly Fiorina and Chris Christie suspended their campaigns.

The next Mars event is October 4.

Of particular interest are the activation of the Node/Zeus axis by Mercury on February 27 (South Carolina Democratic primary) and April 19 (New York primary).

We’ll also be watching the alignments by Venus on April 9 (Wyoming Republican caucus) and July 28 (the closing day of the Democratic national convention).

And we shouldn’t overlook the exact fourth-harmonic alignment by Hades on June 6. That’s the eve of presidential election primaries in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

Hades may be the most descriptive of the entire presidential election process!

 

Australian Prime Minister Eclipsed

The Australian Prime Minister has been ousted – and his overthrow closely coincided with this week’s solar eclipse.

As I’ve mentioned a number of times in recent weeks, I have long been expecting the partial solar eclipse a few days ago to have a very big impact on global politics, the financial markets, and key economic and social dynamics.

In the new e-book on Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015, there’s a lot of analysis of currencies, stocks, commodities, historical eclipses, and potential hot spots around the world.

Ignoring The Australian Prime Minister

Even so, I have to confess that I wasn’t paying particularly close attention to domestic politics in Australia, and the Australian Prime Minister really wasn’t on my mind at all.

That’s why I was particularly grateful to get an email on Monday from Michael Correll in Sydney, with the subject line “Solar eclipse over Antarctica brings palace coup in Australia?”

“Dear Tim,” Michael wrote, “The recent Solar Eclipse over Antarctica and Jewish New Year appears to have brought a late-night palace coup to Australia with PM Tony Abbott being overthrown by lawyer and merchant-banker Turnbull MP.

“Turnbull is my MP for the federal seat of Wentworth In Sydney’s upscale Eastern Suburbs.”

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s Woes

Tony Abbott
Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, who was replaced at the partial solar eclipse of September 13, 2015.

During his tenure as Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott has certainly had his share of problems. Last February, after he had been in office for just 17 months, his own Liberal Party tried to unseat him from his post. Abbott described the event as “a near-death experience.”

But Abbott begged his party to give him more time to get his act together as the Australian Prime Minister, and his colleagues obliged by granting him six months to turn things around with his administration.

Even so, the Liberal Party continued to lose credibility under Abbott’s leadership, not only losing favor to the political opposition, but also many Australians who didn’t agree with Tony Abbott’s personal positions on key issues, including his stance opposing gay marriage.

Time Finally Runs Out For Abbott

With Abbott’s popularity among Australians plunging to just 15%, it had become increasingly clear that his days were numbered. Time ran out for the Australian Prime Minister with the solar eclipse on September 13.

Tony Abbott Eclipse Dial
The solar eclipse on September 13 (the red pointer) activated Hades in Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s natal horoscope, as well as the midpoints of Midheaven/Kronos, Ascendant/Zeus, Venus/Saturn, and Saturn/Vulcanus.

As this 90-degree dial for Tony Abbott’s horoscope shows, the eclipse triggered Hades, the transneptunian factor associated with decay, severe disappointments, and negative circumstances in general.

It also aligned with Midheaven/Kronos midpoint (to become the cause of your own obstacles and suffering); the Ascendant/Zeus midpoint (to come under pressure from spiteful individuals around you); the Venus/Saturn midpoint (broken alliances and impoverishment); and the Saturn/Vulcanus midpoint (to confront mighty opposition and to be placed in danger from enemies).

In short, the solar eclipse didn’t treat Tony Abbott very nicely!

A New Australian Prime Minister Takes Charge

Malcolm Turnbull
Malcolm Turnbull ousted Tony Abbott at the solar eclipse to become the new Australian Prime Minister.

On September 14, the day after the solar eclipse, Malcolm Turnbull resigned as Communications Minister in Tony Abbott’s cabinet, and then immediately announced that he was challenging Abbott’s leadership of the Liberal Party. In spite of a frantic last-minute attempt by Abbott to rally support, the Liberal Party members took a vote on the challenge the same day.

The ballot was the final blow for Tony Abbott. He lost by a 54-to-44 vote margin to Malcolm Turnbull, who then became the new Australian Prime Minister.

When he announced his challenge, Turnbull had fiercely attacked Tony Abbott, who, he said, had clearly lost the support of the Australian people and had “not been capable of providing the economic leadership our nation needs.”

The outcome of the party vote was a remarkable contrast to events in 2009, when the more conservative Tony Abbott beat Malcolm Turnbull for leadership of the Liberal Party by a margin of just one vote.

Turnbull was sworn in as the new Australian Prime Minister on September 15.

A Different Kind of Eclipse Effect

Given the outcome of the political wranglings in Australia this week, it’s interesting to compare the eclipse effects on Malcom Turnbull’s horoscope with those on the chart for Tony Abbott. We don’t have a record Turnbull’s birth time, but analysis on the 90-degree dial gives us a practical way of seeing the major impacts.

Malcolm Turnbull Eclipse Dial
We don’t have an exact time of birth for the new Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, but this 90-degree dial analysis shows the solar ellipse (the red pointer) triggering the midpoints in his natal horoscope for Sun/Saturn, Mercury/Jupiter, and Zeus/Poseidon. The net result is quite positive.

The contrast with Abbott’s chart is remarkable. The activation of the Sun/Saturn midpoint is an indication of an older man (Turnbull is three years older than Abbott) taking on a position of responsibility.

With Turnbull’s Zeus/Poseidon midpoint being triggered by the eclipse, we get a picture of strong leadership promoting new ideas. And the activation of the Mercury/Jupiter midpoint in Turnbull’s horoscope simply suggests that the solar eclipse was a time for good news and a cheerful mood, promoting lots of smiles and plenty of conversation.

Eclipse Effects Can Be Nuanced

As we see the differences in the solar eclipse effects in the lives of these two Australian Prime Ministers, it’s worth remembering that solar eclipses can have a long-lasting impact as well as more immediate results. We should also remember, of course, that astrological events move individuals, countries, and organizations in a variety of ways, depending on their interactions with the appropriate horoscopes involved.

That’s exactly why I invest so much time and energy studying the anticipated effects of solar eclipses, and why I share the results of that research in publications like Claiming New Territory: Shifting Dynamics at the Solar Eclipse of September 2015. The aim is to make sure that you’re up to speed with the potential for immediate short-term consequences, and that you have the tools you need to examine long-term eclipse effects as well.

The End of A Cycle

We’ve been dealing with the series of Uranus/Pluto waxing squares for the past three years.

There have been six of these alignments so far, with the first one coming in the summer of 2012 and the most recent one hitting us last December.

And now we’re ready for the seventh and final square.

It’s coming up in just another week, on March 16.

It marks the end of a cycle of these alignments, but not the end of the enormously stressful impact this planetary combination has been having on geopolitics, on community affairs, on market and economic activity, and on our daily lives.

As we noted in our special monograph on The Uranus/Pluto Waxing Square 2012-2015: Expanded Astro-Trading Opportunities, Uranus by itself can be extremely disruptive. It’s associated with surprises, accidents, explosions, bursts of enthusiasm, sudden hostilities, and the rapid disintegration of established forms and expectations.

We reach the end of a cycle with Uranus every 84 years, and that time period often marks significant milestones in the lives of individuals, organizations, and countries as well.

The End of a Cycle of Uranus and Pluto Together

When we add Pluto to the mix, however, the already explosive potential of Uranus can get extreme.

There are wars, natural catastrophes, and riots in the streets.

Tempers flare, and lines are drawn in the sand in families, neighborhoods, and political parties.

We experience times of racial unrest, social tension, confrontation, and sometimes violence and bloodshed.

The final Uranus/Pluto waxing square marks the end of a cycle with activation of potent midpoint structures.
The final Uranus/Pluto waxing square marks the end of a cycle with activation of potent midpoint structures.

That’s what’s been in play for the past three years, and that’s what comes into strong focus as we approach the end of a cycle on March 16.

This final alignment at the end of a cycle of seven waxing squares sees the Uranus/Pluto waxing square triggering the Apollon/Aries midpoint (widespread commercial activity; events that have a global impact) and the Hades/Vulcanus midpoint (wickedness, vice, great danger, capital crimes, brutality, murder.

In short, it’s not a very pretty picture.

But even as we count down the days until this ominous astrological event at the end of a cycle in a period of profound stress, we need to remind ourselves that every crisis brings opportunities with it.

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.

Sun Neptune 2015 Oil Prices Chart
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 Reversal for Stock Market Trading, or Just Resistance?

The S&P 500 has been in a solid rally for the past two weeks, since the May 15 Venus/Uranus conjunction.

But for the past couple of days, with the index hitting new record highs again, some additional planetary factors have come into play for stock market trading which could signal a trend reversal, or at least some significant resistance that could result in the rally running out of steam.

This chart shows the planetary price lines for Mercury and Hades in the sixteenth harmonic, with the S&P currently trying to push throuhg that planetary combination in the 1914-1916 range.

We’ll be watching the action there during the coming trading days, and will be paying particular attention to the Mercury retrograde station coming up in early June, which can amplify the strength of this resistance zone.

Don’t underestimate the power of Mercury in key trading dynamics. Be sure to check out the information on Mercury and Hades in the book Mercury, Money, and the Markets (available from Amazon.com or direct from the publisher at http://bit.ly/MercuryBook).
