Best Week Of The Year

We’ve just finished up the best week of the year so far for the stock market.

In fact, it was a roaring rally.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index gained 4.41% for the week.

The Russell 2000 was up 1.95%.

The NASDAQ Composite added 3.88% compared to the week before.

And the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 4.71% to guarantee a prime spot in the financial headlines.

What Was Behind The Best Week?

The trading action provided a remarkable contrast to the downturn in May.

But exactly what was behind the best week of the year?

According to the mainstream financial media, a lot of the credit goes to the Federal Reserve.

Acting As Appropriate

Speaking in Chicago on Tuesday, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell discussed “recent developments involving trade negotiations and other matters.”

“We do not know how or when these issues will be resolved,” he said.

“We are closely monitoring the implications of these developments for the U.S. economic outlook and, as always, we will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion, with a strong labor market and inflation near our symmetric 2 percent objective.”

That promise to “act as appropriate” created an instant market reaction.

An Accurate Forecast

But here’s the interesting thing about the best week of the year, the one that we’ve just completed.

We knew it was coming ahead of time.

And it really had nothing to do with Jerome Powell’s speech on Tuesday.

Although we didn’t specifically say it would be the best week of the year so far, we definitely saw this week’s stock market rally coming.

It was because we saw a Mars/Kronos conjunction just ahead.

We know that Transneptunians are powerful market movers.

Mars Kronos Best Week
The Mars/Kronos conjunction was a precursor to the best week of the year so far.

But when we made that forecast last Saturday, a rally certainly wasn’t a sure thing.

After all, when we did our special webinar last weekend on Transneptunian timing factors in the markets, the markets had just completed a month of surprising losses.

Nobody was looking for the best week of the year.

Confidence in a big price move was definitely lagging.

The Mars/Kronos Effect

But during that in-depth advanced training session we did a deep-dive into all the potential effects of the current Mars/Kronos conjunction.

That’s a relatively rare planetary alignment that often signals extreme events in politics, in social or public affairs, in international relations, and in business and the financial markets.

Last Saturday’s webinar was an extraordinarily powerful session.

One of the key take-aways was that even after the exact Mars/Kronos alignment, we can still expect to see its effects continuing to play out in geopolitics and market action for a number of weeks to come.

That’s exactly what’s been going on now.

But that wasn’t all we talked about in the webinar.

New Transneptunian Explorations Coming

We’re getting ready to launch a new Transneptunian program.

This new service is the result of ongoing requests from readers and subscribers.

Many of them seem particularly intrigued (or confused) by the Transneptunian Factors and their role in astro-trading.

Over the years, we’ve dealt with such questions on a case-by-case basis. I’ve posted on this blog, written articles, conducted webinars, and had lots of one-on-discussions, on Skype, via telephone, or in person.

For example, we’ve done some extensive studies of the role of the Sun and Kronos in tracking the trading action for Gold.

We’ve also examined the results of Jupiter and Admetos interactions.

And the list goes on.

New Transneptunian Directions

But now, thanks to a steady demand, it’s definitely time for a new Transneptunain program.

We’ll be launching it soon.

New Transneptunian Program

As we make plans for this exciting new program, I’d like to invite you to join us in the planning process.

Participate By Taking Our Survey

To make that happen, start by taking our 3-minute survey.

It will give you an opportunity to talk about what interests you most, what questions you have, and what new Transneptunian discussions you’d like to see us have.

Be sure to include your contact information when you take the survey.

Then, to keep up to date with our plans as they emerge, go to: http://bit.ly/TNP33

You can enter your email address there to get on the list for updated details.

We’ll be sharing more information very soon!


Will Space Rocks Overwhelm Unwary Astrologers?

“Anything worth doing is worth overdoing,” Mick Jagger once famously said, and his words came to mind earlier today when I was reviewing some information from NASA about Potentially Hazardous Asteroids (PHAs).

NASA defines PHAs as “space rocks larger than approximately 100m that can come closer to Earth than 0.05 AU. None of the known PHAs is on a collision course with our planet, although astronomers are finding new ones all the time.”

These aren’t tiny pebbles. 100 meters is roughly the height of a 27-storey building, and longer than an American football field. So if one of these space rocks were to come hurtling out of the sky and smash into the local neighborhood, it would be a memorable event!

But it wasn’t the size of these objects as much as the sheer number of them that got my attention, bringing Mick Jagger to mind.

According to the folks at NASA, as of today they are tracking 1,421 PHAs. You can get a complete list of them by CLICKING HERE.

What concerns me here is not so much the likelihood of a space rock suddenly crashing through my roof– that seems like a remote possibility at best.

What I’m actually worried about is the passion that some astrologers have about including every newly-discovered object in our solar system as a symbolic object in their horoscopes.

Since the invention of the telescope, astrology has moved far beyond the Seven Sacred Planets of the ancient world– the wandering bodies that can be sighted with the naked eye. By the time Pluto was discovered in 1930, astrology had begun reinventing itself to include more planets that the astronomers had observed, as well as the transneptunian factors postulated by Alfred Witte and his students.

In later decades the major asteroids– Ceres, Vesta, Pallas, and Juno– started showing up in horoscopes, and they were soon followed by more asteroids, planetoids, comets, and hypothetical objects. The result has been an incredible capacity for clutter in the horoscope wheel, as this chart for the New York Stock Exchange illustrates:

NYSE ktichensink

This NYSE horoscope includes positions for transneptunians, asteroids, comets, and stray dogs– 46 separate objects in all.

The obvious potential problem here is in not being able to see the forest for the trees. Being effective as astro-traders depends on maintaining our skill at pattern recognition, so that we can see the emerging trends in the market.

In short, whether we’re working with the natal horoscope for an individual or a First-Trade chart for a stock, too much information is not always a good thing, in spite of what Mick Jagger says.

By the way, if you think this chart looks cluttered with 46 factors included, can you imagine what it wil look like when we add 1,421 Potentially Hazardous Asteroids?
