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!

BABA – A Billion Dollars and the 40 Thieves

Today’s the day that the Initial Public Offering for the Alibaba Group hits Wall Street, with the American Depository Receipts for the Chinese company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol BABA.

With the offering now priced at the top of its proposed range at $68 a share, it’s the biggest IPO in Wall Street history. The deal will bring in $21.8 billion in fresh capital for big internet company.

The BABA IPO is definitely something we need to keep an eye on as astro-traders.

Now I don’t know about you, but for me $21.8 billion is mighty close to a MEGO number – that stands for “My Eyes Glaze Over.”

I always feel fairly flush when I’ve got a few extra hundred-dollar bills in my pocket, and I’m always delighted when I can get Free Money by picking up a couple of pennies that have been abandoned on the sidewalk.

But $21,800,000,000.00 has an awful lot of zeros, and I have trouble visualizing that amount of money.

That’s why I decided to pile up a billion dollars in cash in my garage, just so I could get it together in one place to take a picture of it. Then if I print out 22 copies of the picture I can get a pretty good idea of what we’re talking about with the Alibaba IPO….

Actually, of course, I wasn’t really the one who took the picture.

I found the photo on the internet (where else do you go to look for cool stuff?) and put it in a new pdf, along with a copy of a neat theatrical poster for a stage production of “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves” in 1886.

You can get it as a free bonus download when you watch my new video on the Alibaba IPO and Jack Ma.

I Talk Stock Market Trading on New Yorba TV Launch

Michael Yorba never stops trying.

For a number of years now he’s been a non-stop promoter of excellence and education for traders, and along the way he’s been a noteworthy pioneer in using the internet as a broadcast medium while he’s opened up new opportunities for improved stock market trading.

He put together the “Commodity Classics” online TV show as a live streaming video feed when a lot of the audience he was trying to reach just didn’t have access to enough bandwidth to make streaming video commonplace.

But Michael kept pushing the envelope, putting out show after show on a live video feed when a lot of other internet communicators were struggling to get pre-recorded video up on their web sites.

In more recent years, with his “Traders Network” program, Michael Yorba has perfected a talk-radio format for his internet broadcasting that consistently delivers high-quality content to listeners around the world. He’s attracted a big international audience.

Since his early days of television experimentation I’ve had the good fortune to be a guest on his shows on a number of occasions, and I’ve always been impressed with Michael’s skill as an interviewer– he has a great way of asking the kind of probing questions that help clarify complicated material and make important concepts clear on the air.

That’s why, when he called me last week to let me know that he was launching a new television show, I was eager to get involved.

His new program is still very much in the test-drive phase, and even though the video technology has vastly improved over the past few years there’s a lot to juggle in getting a live show up and running.

So it wasn’t too surprising that things were a little wild from the video technology end of things when I was a guest on the third episode of his brand-new show yesterday. There are plenty of bugs that still need to be worked out, and I obviously need to get a little more mastery of keeping multiple computer screens going, keeping my facts straight and remembering to look into the camera.

But for what it’s worth, here’s a recording of our shenanigans on the air yesterday. Take a look and share your comments– and remember, you’re getting to see history in the making!

Great Questions About The Solar Eclipse

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michael Yorba for a number of years now, initially when he first got started with his “Commodity Classics” TV show (he was a pioneer in online broadcasting, back in the pre-Neflix days when there was still net neutrality and there was barely enough bandwidth to get a signal through), and more recently as a regular commentator on his Traders Network radio show, which is broadcast live KFXR-1190 AM radio in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas and streamed to listeners around the world via the internet.

One of the great things about Michael is that he’s a trader himself, so he really knows what he’s talking about when he discusses the markets on the radio.

He’s also worked hard to become knowledgeable about astro-trading.

When Michael Yorba and I first started working together, he didn’t know anything at all about planetary influences in the markets. But he got a copy of one of the early editions of The Basic Stock Market Astrology Home Study Course from me, and diligently worked through all the lessons. He’s considerably expanded his astro-trading expertise since then.

That’s why it was no surprise to me during our interview time on his Traders Network show yesterday, when he asked me some probing, to-the-point questions about the impact of the big solar eclipse we’ve got coming up next Tuesday.

He had me on for two segments of the program, so we had plenty of time to get into depth about the time and location of the eclipse, the connections it has with current geopolitical strife, the effects we’re expecting in the markets, our trading philosophy here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, the new monograph on The Solar Eclipse of April 2014: Its Impact on the Markets, and a whole lot more.

Along the way, we even got in some conversation about Apple Computer (AAPL) and the S&P 500, referring to charts that I had posted on his social network page as well as on this blog. To take a look at them now, just CLICK HERE.
