Saturn Resonance in the S&P

I’ve been watching Saturn resonance lately.

We’re seeing it in the continuing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re seeing it in the major economic downturn that’s underway.

And I’ve been using Saturn resonance to come up with a forecast for the S&P 500.

That’s what I was sharing with Larry Pesavento on Friday.

We got together for an extended chat during his Trade What You See program on TFNN.

As usual, there were questions from listeners.

We talked about the impact of the coronavirus on our lives.

But the main focus was my forecast for the S&P.

That’s where Saturn resonance came in.

Saturn resonace in price chart
Saturn resonance combined with Pluto early in 2020 to set the stage for a trading top and a major market sell-off.

I started out by observing the price action in the market on the date of the recent Saturn/Pluto conjunction.

That was on January 12.

I then noted the price alignment with the trading low in effect on January 12 and the high for the day when the market gapped lower on February 24.

Saturn Resonance: “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up”

Larry was quite impressed when he saw that correspondence on my trading chart.

“You can’t make this stuff up,” he said.

Then, when I went on to share my more recent charting work on the S&P, he really got excited.

Apparently there are not many market pundits who are willing to make precise predictions.

That seems to be the case whether or not you’re talking to an astrologer.

But, by using Saturn resonance with my charting, I was able to do just that.

As it turns out, the ninth harmonic is the most powerful resonant dynamic in play right now.

That’s true for both Saturn and for Pluto as well.

You can get the full story – and the specifics of the general forecast and the targeted prediction – when you watch this video of our full conversation on Friday during his show.


As Larry says, “You can’t make this stuff up.”

That’s why the astro-trading advantage is so powerful.

By the way, the free webinar that I mentioned is something that I’m currently offering every Tuesday as a live presentation. Be sure to join us if you want to make your trading easier and more profitable.

Mercury Neptune Astro-Trading

A Mercury Neptune conjunction is just ahead.

It’s not an extremely rare planetary alignment, but it’s still worth watching.

And it’s coming up again in just a few days, on Friday, April 3rd.

Mercury Neptune & S&P

If this Mercury Neptune is true to form, it’s likely to signal a big move upward in stock prices.

That’s why this particular Mercury Neptune set-up was one of the three big astrological events I talked about this morning.

I was the featured guest earlier today on Larry Pesavento’s show on TFNN – Trade What You See.

When we got together on the air, this upcoming planetary event was a big focus.

The Mercury Neptune Meeting Was Just One Topic

Larry and I discussed the likely market impact of the upcoming Mercury Neptune event, of course.

But we talked about the Cupido retrograde station on Thursday, the Jupiter Pluto conjunction on Saturday, the impact of the coronavirus, and more.

You can see the whole interview 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!

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:


 

GE Insiders Are Worth Watching Now

Exactly what do the GE insiders know?

When corporate insiders sell some of their shares in a company’s stock, we’re never too sure about the real reason.

They could be taking out cash to pay off a mortgage, to pay for a child’s college tuition, to support a mistress, or for any other personal need.

But when insiders start buying shares instead of selling them, we can be pretty sure they’re optimistic about the company’s prospects.

GE Stock Opportunity For Buying By Insdiers
With GE insiders buying the stock, we could be seeing an early signal that the long bearish run in share prices is coming to an end. The planetary price lines shown on this chart are for geocentric Venus and Chiron in the eighth harmonic.

That’s what came to mind this past Tuesday, when General Electric (GE) board member James Tisch, who is also CEO of Loews Corp. (L), bought $54 million worth of GE stock.

That was just a week after GE CEO John Flannery acquired GE shares worth $1 million, and one day after GE board member Francisco D’Souza (who is also CEO of Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation (CTSH) purchased just under $1 million worth of GE shares.

Uranus station trading by GE insiders.
The Uranus station may prove to be a bigger bullish trigger than the share buying by GE insiders.

As usual, however, we need to pay attention to the astrology behind the scenes if we wnt to get the complete picture. And in the case of the trading by GE insiders, the astrological factors present a compelling picture.

With transiting Pluto sesquiquadrate the GE First-Trade Apollon and transiting Uranus conjoining the GE secondary progressed Moon as 2017 comes to a close, these insiders may soon be rewarded with rising share prices.

The biggest bullish trigger, however, is likely to be the Uranus direct station on January 2, conjoining Venus at the GE First-Trade Midheaven.

Are the GE insiders right? We’ll have wait and see!

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!

Mars and Pluto Are Ready To Rumble

We’ve known for a long time that interactions of Mars and Pluto can move the markets in significant ways.

But the situation coming up a little later this month is really quite different.

MarsPlutoDevastate

Sure, Mars and Pluto are definitely both involved.

But what’s going on is not a super-powerful angular alignment between these two action-oriented planets.

That’s what we’re typically looking for when we search for potentially profitable opportunities as astro-traders.

This Time It’s Different

This time, however, it’s the speed and direction of Mars and Pluto that are important.

Mars will be going retrograde on April 17, and then, only 19 hours later, Pluto will be making its retrograde station as well.

Needless to say, that’s an extremely rare event.

It also has the potential to deliver a powerful one-two punch on the markets!

Exactly What Will Mars and Pluto Do?

Figuring out the exact implications for the markets is surprisingly complex.

In order to do that, I’ve been engaged in extensive research and back-testing.

I’ve also referred back to some of the previous studies on Mars/Pluto dynamics that we’ve done in past years here at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com – including our ground-breaking white paper on “Mars/Pluto Market Activations 2012-2025” (which has proven to be an incredibly valuable resource since it was published).

I’ve compiled the results, and will be sharing it all during a special webinar on Wednesday, April 6.

Enrollment for this in-depth conversation is limited, but because this is such important information for traders we’re discounting the tuition fee by 83%.

It’s also going to be a live, interactive session, which means you can get your specific questions answered in real time during this exclusive online event.

You’ll definitely want to register right away to reserve your seat for the webinar on How Mars and Pluto Could Devastate The Markets.

Hope to see you there!

Webinar Update – April 7, 2016

We had a great crowd at the event, with some excellent questions during the session.

LinkedIn Meets The Planets

Maybe LinkedIn should have seen it coming.

Last week, on Groundhog Day, we had the closest approach to a Uranus/Pluto waxing square since the series of seven such events that ran between 2012 and 2015.

This time, the alignment hit LinkedIn hard.

The Wall Street analysts’ expectations for the quarterly earnings report from LinkedIn Corporation (NYSE – LNKD) were solidly optimistic. On average, they were anticipating fourth quarter revenues of $857 million and earnings of 78 cents per share.

When the company announced its results after the market closed on Thursday, February 4, it beat those expectations.

The quarterly report showed revenues of $862 million and earnings of 94 cents per share.

That performance wasn’t good enough for traders, however.

LNKD gapped lower at the opening bell on Friday, and after a wild day of trading, the stock closed at 108.38 for a loss of $83.90 a share (a 43.63% decline) in a single trading session.

Needless to say, it was the biggest one-day loss the company had ever experienced, and it amounted to a $10 billion plunge in market capitalization.

So what happened?

Beating Estimates Wasn’t Enough For LinkedIn

The market pundits said the sell-off was due to LinkedIn’s cautious guidance that reduced expectations for long-term revenues and raised concerns about uncertain currency exchange rates.

But the astro-traders who had been watching planetary influences and tracking the information on the LinkedIn First-Trade Data Sheet looked past those fundamentals and saw another story.

This week’s close-approach to an eighth Uranus/Pluto waxing square made its powerful presence felt by triggering multiple midpoint structures in the LNKD First-Trade horoscope.

LinkedIn 90-Degree Dial
This 90-degree dial for the LinkedIn First-Trade horoscope has the pointer positioned at the latest approach to the Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

 

The red arrow on the 90º dial for the LNKD First-Trade chart marks the fourth-harmonic position of the Uranus/Pluto alignment that took place last week.

Extra Trouble from Uranus and Pluto

That alignment activated the midpoints of Sun/Chiron, Poseidon/Node, Venus/Hades, Pluto/Apollon, and Saturn/Ascendant, adding up to a tremendous amount of stress on this stock. It set the stage for trading pressures to come.

LinkedIn Trading Gap
LinkedIn clearly responded to the alignment of Uranus and Pluto in the fourth harmonic, with a single-day plunge that resulted in a $10 billion loss in market capitalization.

 

Then LNKD made an intraday “correct high” on the Uranus/Pluto combination on Thursday.

It provided a clear confirmation that share prices for LinkedIn were immediately heading south.

After LNKD made that correct intra-day high on the Uranus/Pluto zone on February 4 (point “A” on the trading chart above).

The stock gapped down dramatically in response, taking the biggest dive in its entire trading history.

Note that when the closing bell sounded on Friday, February 5, LNKD had settled at 108.38 (point “B”), right on the next-lowest planetary price line combination tracking the tight alignment of Uranus and Pluto in the fourth harmonic.

Not The End Of The Story

It was a significant astro-trading event, to say the least.

But it’s not the end of the story for LinkedIn.

As the LinkedIn First-Trade Data Sheet reveals, there are other stressful times ahead for this stock during the coming months.

Stay tuned.

Arch Crawford on Planetary Intensity

, I had a great chat with Arch Crawford yesterday after the New York markets closed.

As usual, our conversation was mainly about astrology, and the potential impact of current planetary alignments on geopolitics and market action.

Arch Crawford had called me because he was concerned about the sheer volume of planetary aspects that will be forming during the hours that the markets are open today. “I don’t know when I’ve seen so much stuff coming together so intensely,” he said.

I agreed. The stage is set by an Apollon direct station in the early morning hours, prior to the opening bell. But after the market opens this morning at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, we’ve got an amazing string of planetary alignments in rapid-fire succession throughout the trading day.

Here’s What Got Arch Crawford’s Attention

Venus will be in a waxing semi-square to Mars at 9:49 a.m.

Mars will be in opposition to Pluto at 10:12 a.m.

Venus will form a waning sesquiquadrate to Pluto at 10:31 a.m.

Mercury will be contraparallel Uranus at 1:04 p.m.

Mercury will form a waning sesquiquadrate to Saturn at 1:48 p.m.

Mars will parallel Jupiter at 2:33 p.m.

And then just a few minutes prior to the closing bell, at 3:36 p.m., Mercury will align with the transneptunian factor Vulcanus in the 24th harmonic.

Later this evening, after the markets have closed for the day, we’ll also get a Mercury/Pluto oppositon, Mercury in a waning semi-square to Venus, and Mars in a waxing semi-square to Admetos. And on top of that, we have a New Moon tonight.

That’s quite a line-up, to say the least!

But What About The Apollon Station?

In talking with Arch, I pointed out that most of the activating forces at work are fast-moving planets, so even though there may be a disruptive impact, the overall effect may not be long-lasting. But the direct station by Apollon is another matter.

“I’m not sure that we should overlook the Apollon station,” I said. “That could be enough by itself to signal an important change. In my experience, whenever there’s a station of anything, it’s worth paying attention to”

“Absolutely,” Arch Crawford said. “I agree with you there. It’s one of the biggest things that happens. The most important are the eclipses, and then the planetary stations. Next would be sign changes by planets. Next would be the alignments – but the more planets involved, the bigger the effect. That’s what I’ve found. And this is a bunch of planets!”

Arch Crawford July 15 Planets
his 90-degree dial presentation of the planetary alignments at noon on Wednesday, July 15 reveals the intense energy that made Arch Crawford pay attention.

A bunch of planets indeed!

As this 90-degree dial shows, the alignments today are quite intense. The red pointer arrow on the dial is aimed at the tight configurations between Mars, Pluto and Mercury. Just opposite that, the small red arrow points to the eighth-harmonic activations by Venus and Saturn.

Midpoints Galore

But what’s really interesting here are the planetary midpoints triggers today.

There are key activations of Sun/Node, Sun/Hades, Sun/Kronos, Mercury/Hades, Jupiter/Chiron, and Saturn/Poseidon.

Jupiter triggers both the Mars/Hades and Pluto/Hades midpoints – not a very pretty picture.

Remember the Apollon station? It triggers the Jupiter/Hades midpoint, signaling a widespread lack of money and disturbed happiness.

And that’s not all.

The Moon/Kronos midpoint, for example, is triggered by Mercury (independent, autocratic thinking and communications), Venus (women in positions of national leadership), Mars (officials acting despotically), and Saturn (hindrances or losses through officials and/or prominent women).

Maybe that means we should be paying close attention to what Angela Merkel and Janet Yellen have to say today.

In fact, Arch Crawford mentioned both Janet Yellen’s congressional testimony and the vote in the Greek parliament today as possible arenas where we might see the current planetary tensions find expression.

Just how dire will the outcome be? We’ll have to wait and see, of course.

But no matter what happens, from an astrological perspective this is definitely a day worth watching!
