In all of the discussions about the astrological triggers for the big sell-off in stocks last week, I’ve neglected to mention the contribution that Mercury made to the market plunge!
As the Sun/Jupiter conjunction was capturing most of the attention, Mercury was busy lining up in a precise angular relationship with the Sun that typically signals a trading top for the S&P 500 Index.
What follows a trading top, of course, is a declining market– and that’s exactly what we saw last week!
The principles behind this Sun/Mercury market activation was discussed in the book Mercury, Money and the Markets, which is available from Amazon.com or at a discounted price direct from the publisher at http://bit.ly/MercuryBook.
But the timing of Mercury activations like this is the tricky part. They don’t follow the guidelines of traditional astrology, so many astro-traders miss out on them completely.
That’s why we started publishing Mercury Metrics earlier this year. The latest issue of this easy-to-read quarterly publication was released earlier today; it covers all the specific Mercury activations for July, August, and September.
If you’re interested in adding the precision of Mercury energy to your market timing, I highly recommend that you take a look at Mercury Metrics.
Either way, I think you’ll find Mercury Metrics to be a simple, easy-to-use tool for adding this essential astrological dynamic to your trading.
