Admetos Spotlight Highlights Gold

All markets will be in the Admetos spotlight when the transneptunian factor makes its retrograde station at the end of August.

Admetos will begin its annual period of retrograde motion on August 31. That provides a potential pivot point for the markets.

In fact, Admetos retrograde stations are frequently followed by an upward trend in stock market prices.

That was a key topic I discussed with Larry Pesavento earlier today. I’m always glad to be his guest.

Today I focused on the Admetos Spotlight during his broadcast of the Trade What You See program on TFNN.

Gold In The Admetos Spotlight

In particular, I shared my research on the impact of Admetos stations on the price of Gold.

When the yellow metal is in the Admetos spotlight at the time of the retrograde station, there’s a distinct buying opportunity.

That’s what’s happening now.

Here’s the video of my interview with Larry, including details on the reasons behind this Admetos spotlight trade in Gold.

Not all transneptunian stations have the same kind of impact, of course.

But in this case I think it’s worth paying attention to Gold in the Admetos spotlight!

The Astro-Trading Intensive

By the way, during the interview Larry Pesavento also asked me about our new Astro-Trading Intensive training program.

This brand-new training program has just been released in its online version, and it’s getting rave reviews.

The Astro-Trading Intensive is designed to help you get the most from your astro-trading experience. It removes confusion and uncertainty.

It gets you past the sense of overwhelm that sometimes sets in when you try to learn something new.

Most of all it moves youtoward profitable trading. It takes you by the hand and guides you step by step toward real astro-trading results.

It’s a great way to get up to speed with the astro-trading advantage in a short period of time.

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

We’ll be sharing more information very soon!

 

A Vulcanus Offer You Can’t Refuse

Too many astro-traders forget about Vulcanus.

In fact, they don’t even think about it at all.

That’s true of all the transneptunian factors, of course.

And most of the time the snubs aren’t really meant to be insulting.

They’re just an act of ignorance.

Who Cares About Vulcanus?

After all, who’s paying attention to Vulcanus in the first place?

And what the heck does it have to do with the markets?

So who really cares?

For most astro-traders (and for most astrologers, too) transneptunian factors feel like they are entirely optional.

Take ’em or leave ’em.

Do as you choose.

But with Vulcanus it’s especially treacherous to look the other way.

It doesn’t like to be ignored.

It’s an authoritative planet. It’s associated with dynamic energy at the extreme.

It represents coercion by the highest authority, in the most emphatic way.

In short, Vulcanus is truly a power planet.

Moving Very Slowly

Except for Poseidon, it is the outermost of the transneptunians.

It has an orbital period of 663 years.

That means Vulcanus moves forward through the zodiac at the excruciating rate of just 32.5 minutes a year.

It’s currently in the final degree of the sign of Cancer. It’s been hanging around that zone for the past three years.

But prior to now, the last time Vulcanus visited that part of the zodiac was in 1353-1355.

That was more than 500 years before the American Civil War.

For that matter, it was before America itself. It was before Columbus or the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock.

It was before Shakespeare. Geoffrey Chaucer was only ten years old.

In 1354 Giovanni Boccaccio had just published The Decameron.  The English were resuming the Hundred Years’ War after taking a brief break because of the decimation caused by the Black Death.

So it was a very long time ago.

Vulcanus Today

So why is Vulcanus important to us today?

To start with, it’s emblematic of over-the-top extremes of power and forcefulness.

That’s a theme currently on full display in domestic affairs, cultural discourse, and geopolitics. Power struggles are the order of the day,

In that sense, Vulcanus is Marlon Brando.

Not The Wild One Brando, or the Brando in On The Waterfront or A Streetcar Named Desire.

Brando Vulcanus Godfather
Marlon Brando expresses the epitome of Vulcanus energy in The Godfather.

It’s Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 film The Godfather.

The genteel one who talked about making “an offer you can’t refuse.”

Since Vito Corleone was a mafia don, we’ve got a pretty good idea of what that generous offer was really all about.

And so it is with Vulcanus.

Times of Special Emphasis

Let’s face it.

We all have to deal with Vulcanus every day.

It’s there in our natal horoscopes and our First-Trade charts. It’s in the horoscopes of countries, market indices, and NGOs.

But there are a couple of times each year when Vulcanus takes on extra strength.

Those are its planetary stations. The times when it goes retrograde, and the times when it returns to direct motion.

And while it typically exerts a lot of power in moving the markets, at stations it really throws its weight around.

With a Vulcanus direct station on April 13, that’s worth looking at.

Vulcanus Direct Dial
Vulcanus Direct Station – April 13, 2017

Its direct stations tend to be slightly bearish for the S&P 500. They bring lower prices about 46% of the time, and fall within 3 daily bars of an isolated high 59% of the time.

That’s also characteristic of the direct stations and the Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong. They bring lower prices about 47% of the time, and fall within 3 daily bars of an isolated high 60% of the time.

For the Dow Jones Industrial Average, however, the direct stations tend to be fairly bullish. They signal price reversals to the upside about 41% of the time, and fall within 3 daily bars of an isolated low 70% of the time.

But no matter what market we’re trading, we need to watch this Vulcanus direct station.

After all, i’s making us an offer we can’t refuse.

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.

Hear It For Yourself

That’s why I decided to make that recording available.

It’s been edited slightly. The audio quality has been cleaned up a little.

But in the audio, you’ll get the facts. You’ll hear details and nuances about transneptunian connects that aren’t available elsewhere.

And best of all, it’s available now as an instant MP3 download.

You’ll find details HERE.

First-Trade Vulcanus Brings Big Trading Profits

Like the other transneptunian factors, First-Trade Vulcanus can be worrisome.

But there are times when these so-called “hypothetical” planets give us valuable information as astrologers and astro-traders.

This is true even though they may not have been sighted with telescopes yet.

It’s true even though they may be widely ignored in conventional astrological textbooks.

They clearly define power points and hot zones when we add them to our astrological calculations.

They provide important perspectives when we include them in our horoscope charts.

A Practical Example

For example, consider the transneptunian factor Vulcanus more closely. It takes 663 years to make a complete passage through the zodiac.

It covers about the same amount of celestial territory in a year that Mars covers in a day.

In short, Vulcanus is slow from our earth-bound perspective. But it’s very important for us as astro-traders.

First-Trade Vulcanus As A Sensitive Point

If we look at Vulcanus as a sensitive point in a First-Trade horoscope, and then watch the impact of transiting planets aspecting that sensitive point, we can get critical insights.

We are often likely to see First-Trade Vulcanus lending its enormous power to a profitable move in the markets.

MTSN Uranus & First-Trade Vulcanus
Because we were able to identify the upcoming square between transiting Uranus and First-Trade Vulcanus in advance, we were able to enter the trade early enough to get a more profitable return.

In a recent trade of Mattson Technology, for example, an aspect from transiting Uranus to the MTSN First-Trade Vulcanus opened up a big rally. Prior to that, the stock that had been struggling to come off a trading bottom.

The result was a profit of nearly 10 percent in just 25 trading days.

A return like that makes a big difference. It’s quite clear that it’s worth the extra effort to include all eight transneptunian factors in our charts.

They can turbo-charge the results of our astro-trading.

You can see a 7-minute video describing this Vulcanus effect during this trade, along with a description of the overall trading strategy involved, at: http://www.financialcyclesweekly.com/public/Dont-Forget-Vulcanus.cfm

Oil Prices Today & Tomorrow

So what’s really going on?

Have we seen a true bottom in oil prices today, or is the current upward movement just a sign of a dead-cat bounce?

That’s the topic of a feature article in the current issue of FinancialCyclesWeekly newsletter – it not only talks about the situation in oil prices today, but also reviews the potential for oil trends during the coming months.

Trade ETFs To Play Oil Prices Today

Although Crude Oil Futures grab most of the headlines when it comes to news about oil, remember that you can also get into the trading opportunities offered by oil prices today by getting into oil-based ETFs.

The ETFs don’t offer the same kind of leverage that futures contracts provide, but if you choose your ETF wisely you can still get a lot of bang for your buck, especially if you see that oil prices today are trending strongly.

USO Tracks Oil Prices Today
This trading chart for the USO ETF closely follows the current trend in Crude Oil, since the price of the ETF each day is based on what happens to oil prices today in the futures markets.

For example, United States Oil Fund Limited Partnership (USO) trades on the New York Stock Exchange as an ETF, providing good liquidity and a low barrier to entry for small-scale speculators looking for a play in the oil market, since it closely tracks the trading action in Crude Oil Futures.

The trading chart above shows the way that geocentric Mars and Admetos in the ninth harmonic work together to structure support and resistance in the market action in oil prices today, as reflected in the trading for USO.

Bring On The Transneptunians!

It’s interesting to note the role of the Transneptunian Admetos here.

Many financial astrologers associate the planet Neptune with the oil industry.

They aren’t wrong in doing so, but at times this astrological signature can limit their thinking.

If the observation of planetary factors ends there, it can actually become an obstacle to developing an assessment of oil prices today and a forecast for future trends.

Admetos is connected with raw materials in general, and can be a critical factor in assessing supply-and-demand questions. So when we look at it along with Mars, we can get a pretty good picture of some of the key forces behind oil prices today.

What Do Midpoints Say About Oil Prices Today?

The Mars/Admetos midpoint also figures prominently in the First-Trade horoscope for USO. It’s easy to see its importance on the 90° dial.

Oil Prices Today - USO FT Dial
If we want to figure out what’s going to be happening to oil prices today and in the future, a very good place to start is with the 90-degree dial for USO.

The First-Trade 90° dial for USO shown here reveals the potentially dramatic effect that we may see with Neptune’s retrograde station coming up on June 12, 2015.

The red arrow on the right side of the dial is the position of the Neptune station, which will trigger Moon/Venus, Mars/Admetos, Neptune/Kronos, and Jupiter/Node midpoints in the USO First-Trade horoscope.

This midpoint zone is extremely sensitive, and needs to be watched closely in forecasting oil prices today or at any future time.

By the way, this same midpoint zone has been repeatedly impacted by eclipses in recent years, including the solar eclipse on January 15, 2010, the solar eclipse on June 1, 2011, the lunar eclipse on October 18, 2013, and the lunar eclipse on April 15, 2014.

During the coming years we’ll also be watching the solar eclipse on September 1, 2016 and the lunar eclipse on July 16, 2019 and potential triggers for the oil market as well.
