Forecasting The Bitcoin Boom

The current bitcoin boom has been right in line with my forecast from three weeks ago.

Shortly after the holiday break for the Fourth of July, we did a cycle analysis for bitcoin, and identified a potential turning point for the cryptocurrency.

Our cycle work highlighted July 20 as a critical date.

Setting The Stage for a Bitcoin Boom

Trading in bitcoin was weak and congested at the time. Our cycle chart revealed the likelihood of weaker prices ahead.

At least until July 20th.

That’s when the cycles looked ready for a turn, setting the stage for a move to the upside.

It looked like a possible set-up for a bitcoin boom.

Doing A Back-Test

That’s why we decided to dig a little deeper.

We identified fourth-harmonic alignments between Mars and Kronos as key factors in bitcoin price swings.

And that’s what we took a look at in the previous trading history for the cryptocurrency.

The results were surprising, to say the least.

These particular planetary configurations have a high level of correspondence with the likelihood of a bitcoin boom.

Sharing Our Results

After making a forecast of just such an event coming up on July 20, we were of course interested in watching the bitcoin trading action.

So when bitcoin started to rally right on schedule, we knew our astro-trading signal was working fine.

That’s why I responded to Larry Pesavento’s invitation to join him on the air yesterday with a lot of enthusiasm.

When we got on the broadcast of his Trade What You See program on TFNN, I shared the bitcoin research and forecast.

I mentioned the book on Bitcoin Astrology.

We also discussed the current bitcoin boom – and what it means for future upcoming trading prospects.

And of course I grabbed the recording of our entire conversation.

You can watch it all here:

Microsoft Trade Possibilities Ahead

It looks like a Microsoft trade may offer some real possibilities for astro-traders now.

Microsoft trade chart
The trading action for Microsoft is currently structured along the ninth-harmonic planetary price lines for geocentric Mars and Poseidon. Note the upward trading channel provided by the red price lines for geocentric Mars, providing solid expectations for rising prices ahead.

The current trading chart for Microsoft (NASDAQ – MSFT) shows a mild uptrend in a trading channel. We have every reason to expect that trend to continue.

But other things are happening, too!

Transits Set Up A Positive Microsoft Trade

There are some powerful transiting dynamics that we shouldn’t ignore. They have the potential for a major impact coming up in the next few weeks.

First of all there’s Jupiter.

Action by transiting Jupiter is bringing it into opposition to the transneptunian factor Kronos in the Microsoft First-Trade horoscope. That line-up suggests that higher prices for this stock may be coming up soon.

That gets big reinforcement from transiting Pluto, which is activating both First-Trade Jupiter and the First-Trade Ascendant.

Together, these transiting dynamics form an incredibly powerful combination.

As we look at the potential for a profitable Microsoft trade, then, we can expect a massive price bump for this bellwether tech stock.

The move could be quite memorable.

Note that because of the role that transiting Pluto is playing here, it may take a few weeks to see the full price impact.

After all, Pluto moves very slowly. So the positive action here may follow the Pluto pace, taking its time in benefiting this stock.

Here’s a quick video that puts the current situation into perspective:

As this Astro-Traders’ Tip of the Week suggests, this may be a very good time indeed to look at a Microsoft trade as a potential winning move in your own portfolio!

Planetary Resistance Confronts Markets

Planetary resistance.

It’s a trading concept astro-traders use.

But most other traders have never even heard of it.

But there it is.

Resistance?

Planetary resistance is like regular resistance in technical analysis.

It’s an upper limit.

Essentially, it’s a zone that inhibits prices from going higher.

In technical analysis, we can find resistance in previous market highs.

More specifically, a high that’s held up after being tested repeatedly offers strong resistance.

When that happens, prices are unlikely to go higher.

Or we can use technical tools to project resistance zones.

A Fibonacci retracement. A Fibonacci extension.

Or an Elliott Wave target.

It doesn’t really matter how we get there.

By defining resistance, we can set price targets.

We can clarify our trading expectations.

And we can trade more effectively as a result.

What About Planetary Resistance?

But what makes planetary resistance different?

It’s market resistance derived from planetary positions.

So correspondences between planetary positions and market prices are a key.

As described in the book Gann Secrets Revealed Volume 1,  each degree of the zodiac matches specific prices.

By understanding those matches, we can track trading action.

Then, based on specific planetary alignments, we can anticipate trend changes.

It’s a fabulous trading tool.

That’s why I discussed planetary resistance with Larry Pesavento yesterday on his TFNN show.

We chatted about this S&P chart:

Mars Planetary Resistance with S&P
The red lines on the chart correspond to the positions of Mars. The blue lines represent Saturn. Note the heavier red line moving diagonally near the top of the chart. This first-harmonic Mars line clearly defines planetary resistance. The lighter red lines are Mars harmonic increments.

It highlights planetary price lines for Mars and Saturn.

With either stocks or commodities, planetary price lines reveal trading opportunities.

“There Must Be Something There.”

So I shared this chart with Larry.

He noted that “You mention Mars. You know W. D. Gann spent a great deal of time… And a lot of his charts have markings of Mars and things like that. Is that the same type of work you’re working on?”

I confirmed that connection. In response, Larry noted the precision of planetary resistance.

He looked at the price bars on the chart. Then he said “it’s amazing how they bounce off those red lines. There must be something there. That’s for sure!”

Arch Crawford Talks War

Arch Crawford was the first thing Larry Pesavento mentioned when I joined him on his show yesterday.

Arch Crawford
Arch Crawford

“Tim,” he said, “we had one of your biggest fans on yesterday – Arch Crawford!”

I told Larry that I indeed consider Arch Crawford a dear friend.

He’s also one of the best-know financial astrologers.

But, Larry said, Arch told his audience that current astrological alignments point to to the possibility of war before the end of the month.

His latest forecast has been stirring up some very concerns.

That’s why Larry Pesavento had brought him on his Trade What You See program on TFNN the previous day. Arch had had an opportunity then to fill in some the details about what he’s seeing for the weeks ahead.

What Arch Crawford Had To Say

When Arch had been on Larry’s show on Wednesday, he warned of “hostility, terrorism and outright war” just ahead.

“This is a world condition,” he explained, “and as such it’s hard to determine who will and who will not be affected.

“It does touch our president’s horoscope chart, which increases the likelihood of US involvement.

“Neptune is highlighted, and there may be religious elements to certain areas of this turbulence, and perhaps drug connections as well to others.”

“These effects will likely take hold in the latter half of this month.

“This is not a joke!”

Do I Agree With This Forecast?

Quite naturally, Larry wanted to know if I agreed.

Does my own assessment match the view of Arch Crawford?

What’s really going on?

It was a great springboard for a very engaging conversation.

We not only talked about Arch and his forecasts.

We also discussed Y2K, bitcoin, and the current Mars alignments.

And we talked about current conditions in the stock market.

Here’s the entire interview segment:


 

Hidden Market Stress Point

There’s a hidden market stress point coming up that we need to pay attention to.

As astro-traders, we are continuously looking ahead toward upcoming planetary phenomena that have the potential to impact market behavior, providing us with trading opportunities.

Most of the time those phenomena are ones that we see repeated with some regularity: solar and lunar eclipses, planetary stations and ingresses, and aspect alignments of planetary pairs, especially those involving the outer planets or transneptunian factors.

But there are also times when we see hidden market stress points triggered by planetary configurations outside the realm of our “standard” expectations.

Mars, Neptune & Vulcanus Create A Hidden Market Stress Point

That’s what’s going on with the hidden market stress point this week.

During a recent scan of the 45º graphic ephemeris for the first few months of 2019, we spotted a planetary cluster on February 14. It included Mars, Neptune, and Vulcanus all coming together in an eighth-harmonic alignment.

Mars-Neputne-Vulcanus Hidden Market Stress Point

With a closer examination of the transiting planetary dynamics we found that the closest alignment of these three planetary bodies will be at 19:56 Eastern Standard Time on that date.

As shown on the 90º dial, this configuration appears with Mars and Vulcanus combined at the large red pointer, and Neptune in an eighth-harmonic position at the opposite side of the wheel.

This alignment triggers the midpoints for Moon/Mercury (emotionally charged communications) and Cupido/Admetos (destruction of alliances and associations).

The Mars/Vulcanus combination activated by Neptune is an indication of enormous amounts of effort being expended to create little or no results in a colossal waste of energy, with work coming to a standstill in an atmosphere of lies, paranoid thinking and delusional behavior.

We’re certainly likely to see circumstances like this play out in international affairs and domestic politics. We can also expect some reverberation in the markets as well, thanks to this hidden market stress point.

Mars Vulcanus Eighth Harmonic

Our back-testing chart shows just how disruptive waxing Mars/Neptune semi-squares can be on price trends in the S&P. This kind of action can create a very challenging trading environment, to say the least.

It’s also important that even though the planetary action will be in focus on February 14 and 15, the U.S. markets will be closed on Monday, February 18.

So it may be Tuesday, February 19 before we comprehend the full impact of this unusual alignment.

Mars Retrograde Antiscion Secrets

Mars Retrograde Impact
On its own or as a trigger, Mars can have a big impact on market dynamics.

We’ve got the Mars retrograde station coming up in just a couple of days.

Mars impacts are always worth checking out, whether it’s the action of the planet directly or whether it’s translating other energies.

The Mars translation of the Uranus/Pluto square provided a dramatic example.

In this case, though, we’re just dealing with Mars retrograde.

That one should be easy, right?

Actually, maybe not.

I’ve been digging into it, and have found that there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye.

Take the Mars antiscion, for example:

Transneptunian Zodiac Connections

Transneptunian zodiac connections don’t get a lot of attention.

We use the transneptunian planets in our market forecasting work.

We turn to them as we uncover active planetary price lines in trading charts.

But transneptunian factors are rarely understood.

Even some highly-experienced professional astrologers don’t give them much recognition.

And almost nobody understands their connection to the signs of the zodiac.

What’s A Transnepstunian Planet, Anyway?

The transneptunian planets were postulated before they were discovered.

They were first theorized by the German astrologer Alfred Witte. It was just after World War I.

Witte was a brilliant astrologer and mathematician.

He intimately understood connections between planetary cycles and real-world events.

But Witte saw  something missing.

Some events happened without obvious astrological correlations.

That seemed especially true in war.

Hence Witte’s flash of inspiration.

Alfred Witte’s Big Idea

He concluded that there must be more planets orbiting the Sun.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune had companions.

They just hadn’t been discovered yet.

But these hypothetical planets were making their influence felt. They were triggering real events.

Their effects were mainly evident in combination with other planetary influences.

So Witte went to work. He calculated their apparent orbits. He added them to his horoscopes.

And they worked.

The transneptunian factors that Witte and his students theorized really helped explain events.

They helped in individual horoscopes. But they were really powerful in mundane charts. Those are horoscopes associated with nations and global events.

Transneptunians are potent factors in financial astrology.

And since Witte’s day – about 100 years later – we found Kuiper Belt objects.

They’re in the zone where Witte predicted we’d find the transneptunians.

The Transneptunian Zodiac Connection

But their connection to signs of the zodiac is obscure.

That’s why I was intrigued when one of my students asked me about that connection.

She’s an astro-trader, refining her approach to the markets.

Our regular telephone sessions review her progress.

And she asked the question.

“How do transneptunians relate to the signs of the zodiac?”

I decided to record my answer.

It took me 45 minutes. But it’s the most direct and concise discussion you’ll find anywhere.

Election Violence & Uranus-Admetos

Is there election violence just ahead?

The planetary aspects at the U.S. elections on November 8 are disturbing, to say the least.

They certainly suggest the possibility of election violence. It could be either at the polls themselves or in the aftermath of the vote count.

The Saturn-Vulcanus waxing sesquiquadrate contributes to a hyper-vigilant attitude. It’s a “do or die” dynamic that’s essentially looking for trouble. It stays on guard against imagined offences.

The Mars-Admetos waning trine adds to the tension. It signals an urge to take aggressive action against immovable obstacles. There’s a strong possibility that “get out the vote” forces could confront “suppress the vote” resistance.

Election Violence From A Pleasant Source?

And then there’s the conjunction of Venus with the transneptunian Cupido.

It’s just after the Election Day opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange.

Now don’t get me wrong.

Venus and Cupido are two of the good guys in astrology.

Venus is all about love, harmony, money, the arts, and beauty. It’s the feminine mystique personified.

Cupido is connected with community, family connections, and the sharing of common cultural heritage.

So when Venus and Cupido get together it’s typically good. We normally expect social harmony, pleasant connections, and marital bliss.

Venus Cupido S&P High
The Venus-Cupido conjunction marked a trading top for the S&P 500 in December, 2014.

But as this chart for the S&P 500 in 2014 shows, we sometimes get something else.

The Venus-Cupido conjunction coincides with trading tops about 60 percent of the time.

But this time the two planets meet, on Tuesday, November 8, we may get even more negative results.

Venus Cupido signals election violence
The Venus-Cupido conjunction on November 8, 2016 won’t be taking place in isolation. It may even trigger election violence.

This 90-degree dial for the Venus-Cupido conjunction shows the meeting of the two planets at 25º 41′ Sagittarius.

But what’s interesting is not just the connection between those two beneficial planets.

It’s the fact that they trigger the Uranus-Admetos midpoint.

That’s pretty ominous.

This midpoint activation signals shocking social convulsions. We could see wanton destruction, murders, earthquakes, and yes, even election violence.

At the very least, we can expect sudden breakups of trusted associations.

Individuals and factions will be excluded.

They’ll need to learn how to go it on their own.

They may have wounds that take a very long time to heal.

It’s not a pretty picture.

Election Violence and the Markets

Don’t forget. The markets can react to social and political news in dramatic ways.

Election violence could amplify the November Meltdown in equities.

That’s exactly why I hosted a special webinar earlier today.

November Meltdown Webinar
We discussed the prospects for election violence during the live webinar on November 5, 2016.

During that session we took an-depth look at the current planetary stress.

We explored the roots of the election stress.

We checked the horoscopes for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and James Comey.

And we shared solid strategies for profiting in these tense times.

The webinar recording is well worth downloading.

Election Violence in 1876

The election campaign this year has certainly been vicious.

But it’s not the only time that an election got nasty.

1876 election violence
Election violence was rampant in the aftermath of voting in 1876.

The prize for election violence goes to 1876.

Voters went to the polls on Tuesday, November 7, 1876. It was one of America’s most contentious and controversial contests.

The 1876 results are among the most disputed ever. But it’s certain that Samuel J. Tilden of New York outpolled Ohio’s Rutherford B. Hayes in the popular vote.

Hayes got 4,034,311 votes. Tilden got 4,288,546.

After a first count of votes, Tilden won 184 electoral votes. Hayes got 165.

But 20 votes were left unresolved. These 20 electoral votes were in dispute in four states.

In Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina, each party reported its candidate had won the state.

In Oregon one elector was replaced. He had been declared illegal for being an “elected or appointed official”.

Ultimately, all three of Oregon’s votes were awarded to Hayes.

Hayes thus had a majority of one in the Electoral College.

The Democrats cried fraud. Tension and hostility swept the country.

Tilden supporters threatened that Hayes would never be inaugurated.

“Tilden or Blood” became the rallying cry. In Columbus, Ohio, a shot was fired at Governor Hayes’s residence as he sat down to dinner. Supporters marched to his home, calling for the “president”.

Hayes tried to calm the crowd. “It is impossible,” he said, “at so early a time, to obtain the result.”

As incidents of election violence surged, President Grant took action. He strengthened the military force in and around Washington.

 

A look at the h1876-tildenhayesoroscope for the disputed election of 1876 is revealing.

Saturn activates the Mercury-Kronos midpoint, so authoritative communications were in short supply.

With the Venus/Chiron mipoint also getting triggered, harmony and cooperation were difficult to establish.

But most important of all, Saturn also activated the Uranus-Admetos midpoint at the 1876 election. That’s the same combination being triggered now, setting the stage for stress and tension, and possibly even some election violence.

Planetary Pairs in the Markets

Planetary pairs are one of the keys to effective analysis in astro-trading.

What are planetary pairs?

Basically they’re just two different planets that are used in combination to determine the characteristics of specific market action.

Different planetary pairs can be used with different stocks.

Ideally the planets involved will not only connect with the trading action, but will also relate in some way with the characteristics of the company as well.

But even if you’ve managed to select a good pair, it may not last.

Sometimes the trading energy for a particular stock will shift, and the planetary pairs will no longer describe the trading action accurately.

When that happens it’s up to us as astro-traders to examine other potential combinations of planetary pairs. We begin the search for what’s working now.

Picking The Best Planetary Pairs For Trading

Sometimes that search can be pretty frustrating.

We may look through dozens of planetary pairs, seeking in vain for the precise combination that fits the behavior of the stock we want to trade.

At other times the process of filtering through potential planetary pairs takes almost no time at all.

With a flash of inspiration, the perfect combination seems to appear magically!

But what is it that makes the perfect combination?

Fast and Slow

Ideally, you’re looking for one fast-moving planet and one slower-moving planet.

The faster planet will often help define trading trends, while its slower-moving companion helps structure key zones of support and resistance.

And fast and slow are always comparative.

Mercury is faster than Jupiter, but Jupiter is faster than Pluto.

Generally speaking, though, when you pick a fast planet you’ll be selecting the Sun or the Moon, or Mercury, Venus, or Mars.

For slower-moving planets you’ve got lots of options.

Transneptunians As Slow Planets

The Transneptunian Factors are particularly slow moving, which can make them extremely useful in constructing planetary pairs for market analysis.
TNP Transitions Planetary Pairs

We discussed this briefly in our recent webinar on the current Admetos action. Our focus was “The Hidden Transneptunian Transition Just Ahead” – the session provided an in-depth look at some critical factors other financial astrologers have overlooked. The webinar recording is worth downloading and reviewing in detail.

Double Retrograde New York Battle

Things are really heating up in the New York battle.

It’s a scramble for hearts and minds.

It’s a no-holds-barred street fight.

And it’s definitely superb theater.

Voters Picking Sides In The New York Battle

Yes, it’s hard to ignore the political dynamics right now.

The primary elections in New York are scheduled for April 19, and that’s the most obvious arena in the current New York battle.

On the Republican side, Ted Cruz looks like he may have a hard time gaining much affection, especially after his repeated criticisms of “New York values”.

Trump's New York Battle
Donald Trump’s celebrity status has given him plenty of publicity in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination in the New York battle and elsewhere.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, has been a big player on the New York scene for quite some time.

But in many cases his own unique personal version of New York Values has created enemies as well as friends and admirers.

On the Democratic side, New York native Bernie Sanders is going toe-to-toe with New York transplant Hillary Clinton, and their rhetoric has been getting surprisingly nasty.

The New York Battle Is More Than Just Politics

In many respects, the current New York battle is just another over-the-top expression of New York exuberance at its finest and most extravagant.

After all, in New York who needs an election to have an excuse for opinionated bluster?

There are always battle lines to be drawn.

There are always heroes and villains to designated.

There’s always a home team to root for, no matter who you might think the home team is.

The Planetary Difference

But this time, however, there’s an interesting distinction in the current New York battle.

The New York primaries come on April 19.

That’s the date the Sun moves into Taurus.

It also comes on the heels of a surprisingly rare planetary event – nearly simultaneous retrograde stations by Mars and Pluto.

Mars goes retrograde on April 17, and Pluto goes retrograde on April 18.

It’s the kind of one-two punch that could have a major impact, not just on the New York battle on election day, but in other realms as well.

You’ll find a quick recap on the double retrograde, along with some intriguing historical connections, in this 4-minute video:

Check it out.

And then make up your own mind about probable outcomes in the New York battle!
