North Pole Stress & Uranus/Pluto

North Pole New Moon Sunset
A “Midnight Sun” New Moon Sunset at the North Pole

My friend Janie just emailed me this beautiful North Pole picture of the sunset at the New Moon.

I’m not sure what the original source of the photo was. But whether or not it was actually taken at the North Pole, it’s definitely a gorgeous image.

It’s also a little ironic that this North Pole photo arrived this morning.

That’s because I’ve been reflecting on all the big world events that have been taking place. A lot has been going on the last couple of days.

That’s when we’ve been feeling the effects of the current Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

Disruptive Developments

And as we expected, most of those events have been disruptive in one way or another:

The hostage crisis in Sydney, Australia.

The shootings, in Philadelphia.

The Russian ruble going into virtual free-fall.

The massacre of 132 schoolchildren by the Taliban in Pakistan.

The abrupt shift in the decades-old conflict between Cuba and the United States, reestablishing diplomatic relations.

And the North Pole.

The North Pole?

Right.

Although the event hasn’t gotten much play in the news media, the North Pole is suddenly becoming very important.

And that’s not because it’s the reputed residence of Santa Claus. He will be focusing lots of attention on the North Pole next week.

In this case, it’s Denmark that’s in the spotlight.

As reported by the Associated Press and Quartz.com, Denmark has just completed a 12-year, $50-million research project. It to surveyed the 2,000-kilometer-long underwater mountain range that runs north of Siberia.

It’s conclusion? The underwater mountains are actually a part of Greenland. That’s an autonomous territory controlled by Denmark.

Bigger Than Denmark Itself

As a result, Denmark is now claiming sovereignty over 556,463 square miles of the North Pole. That’s an area about 20 times the size of Denmark itself.

This puts Denmark in direct competition and possible confrontation with both the U.S. and Russia. They both also claim the same territory as theirs.

What does it mean? We can learn a lot from Denmark’s official publication  on the “Kingdom of Denmark Strategy for the Arctic 2011-2020” – you can download the pdf version here.

Denmark’s claim of North Pole sovereignty comes into focus when we see the effect of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

And don’t forget the astrology involved.

The transits hitting the Denmark national horoscope at the time of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square are very powerful.

It’s a Neptune Return for the nation. It’s time for big ideas and new fantasies.

Jupiter conjoins the national Poseidon. That’s even more evidence of expanded thinking.

Chiron conjoins Demark’s national Kronos. So there may be issues about superiority and domination.

And most important of all, the transiting Uranus/Pluto square aligns with the Mars/Hades square in Denmark’s chart.

This could get serious!

 

Perspectives from Top Financial Astrologers

When I was in Philadelphia last weekend to speak at the NCGR conference, I had a great time sharing some of the results we’ve been getting here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com with astrologers and traders who wanted to know more about how planetary cycles really work in their impact on the markets.

It was also an excellent opportunity for connecting with some of my colleagues and good friends who are part of the financial astrology community, including Grace Morris, Arch Crawford, Georgia Stathis and Christeen Skinner.

As always, they had much to share about events in their lives and businesses, and it was fun sharing perspectives on the markets.

Georgia Stathis, for example, said she was expecting a big impact on the equities markets when lunar eclipses hit the natal horoscope for the New York Stock Exchange in October of this year and April in 2014. I’ll be keeping them in mind as  I prepare the next couple of monographs in our ongoing series on Solar Eclipse and their Impact on the Markets.

Arch Crawford said he’s watching the remaining iterations of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square as possible turning points in the markets. He’s also keeping an eye on sunspot activity.

“Based on my analysis of electron flux numbers,” he said,  “it looks like natural forces are trying to take the market down, but the governments of the world are doing everything in their power to keep the markets up.”

Always inclined to take a bearish stance, he added that “I don’t know how much longer they can keep on doing that.”

Sharing Astro-Trading Techniques at a Top Astrology Conference in the City of Brotherly Love

I’ve been in Philadelphia for the past couple of days, where I’ll be speaking tomorrow at the conference being held here by the National Council on Geocosmic Research (NCGR).

We’re meeting at the Doubletree Hotel on South Broad Street, just a couple of blocks from City Hall. It’s a great group of participants, and I’ve enjoyed seeing friends and colleagues from the community of financial astrologers, including Arch Crawford, Georgia Stathis, Grace Morris, Alphee Lavoie, and Christine Skinner.

I’ll be talking about “Astro-Trading Step by Step” on Saturday, August 17, starting at 3:45 p.m.

If you’re in the Philadelphia area stop by and say hello!
