Transneptunian One-Two Punch

The transneptunian one-two punch is making its presence felt.

But it’s understandable if you weren’t fully aware of what’s really going on.

Here’s the story.

Stocks put in a strong showing today. The rally was based on the potential for a US-China trade agreement.

At least that’s what the mainstream financial media would have you believe.

But for the most part they ignore the astrological dynamics behind the scenes. That’s where the real action is.

From the astro-trading perspective, we’re viewing things a little bit differently.

Transneptunian One-Two Punch
When Hades and Kronos slug it out, we can feel the impact in the markets!

The surge in stock prices coincided perfectly with the big Transneptunian One-Two Punch that we’ve been forecasting.

The Transneptunian One-Two Punch

What’s that all about?

Two transneptunians, Hades and Kronos, are now in the midst of back-to-back retrograde stations.

That’s an extremely powerful event.

We’ve been expecting it to have a big impact on the markets. Not just on stocks, but precious metals, bonds, futures, currencies and more.

We explored all the dynamics of this powerful event – including proven back-testing results – during our live training webinar a few days ago.

This advanced training session was all about The Transneptunian One-Two Punch.

It was an 88-minute event packed with valuable information you can use in your own trading right now.

We had a big crowd and great participation – it was a highly energized training event!

It truly set the stage for today’s big close to the trading week – and for the more challenging market action that lies just ahead.

Bitcoin Rally Revives Bullish Fever

Thanks to the current bitcoin rally, the cryptocurrency world in general is getting lots of attention.

There’s been a resurgence of bullish interest in bitcoin during recent weeks.

A lot of bullish interest.

The fabled cryptocurrency has surged to new highs, hitting price levels not seen for the past 10 months.

It’s now trading well above $8,000.

In fact, as this is being written it’s just topped $8,600!

A Fresh Bitcoin Rally

What’s behind the sudden frenzy creating a fresh bitcoin rally?

According the Michael Hartnett, the chief investment strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the dramatic move to the upside is a signal that global recession fears are growing steadily.

The bitcoin rally could in fact be an indication that we’re experiencing a massive and precipitous collapse of confidence in the world’s governments and in the core structure of the international financial system.

But Hartnett theorizes that global investors are investing in bitcoin not because they believe it is a safe haven asset in times of uncertainty and instability.

He says it’s because they are looking for high-risk, high-reward investments.

He argues that low interest rates on bond yields since the financial collapse in 2008 has left investors starved of profits, sending them into a global “greed trade” across corporate, emerging market, and crypto securities.

Dystopian Loss of Faith

Hartnett’s analysis resonates with a comment earlier this year by John Normand, JPMorgan’s head of cross-asset fundamental strategy.

He noted that “We have long been skeptical of cryptocurrencies’ value in most environments other than a dystopian one characterized by a loss of faith in all major reserve assets (dollar, euro, yen, gold) and in the payments system.”

Dystopian is a strong word, but with the broad economic implications of the Trump-China trade war it may not be inappropriate.

Tim Bost with New Book

From an astrological perspective, however, the surge in bitcoin prices is not too surprising. In the Bitcoin Astrology book (which I co-authored with Bill Meridian, Goncalo Moreira, Christeen Skinner and Wendy Stacey), there’s a note (on page 112) of a winning bitcoin trading strategy.

It’s a particularly bullish solar cycle.

It currently has a track record of successfully predicting a bitcoin rally 86 percent of the time.

That bullish solar transit has been in play since late April.

It continued through the trading week just behind us.

And this last time around, it brought a boost in the price of bitcoin of roughly 52%!

Mars-Hades bitcoin rally

Coming up next, we expect to see a significant impact on bitcoin from the Mars/Hades conjunction on May 27.

As our back-testing chart shows, we can expect this planetary combination to bring about three weeks of congested trading.

That’s likely to be followed by another surge triggering a fresh bitcoin rally.

The zodiac position of this Mars/Hades conjunction is also worth noting; we’ve pointed to it on the 90º dial for the bitcoin inception horoscope.

Midpoint Triggers

It triggers the following midponts:

Mars/Admetos [a sinking market]

Mercury/Saturn [price excursions]

Mercury/Uranus [exciting news]

Uranus/Apollon [expansion by leaps and bounds]

Jupiter/Hades [a shortage of money but good luck in black market dealings].

Based on those planetary activations, we can certainly expect to see plenty of bitcoin trading excitement during the months ahead!

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.

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.

Market Rally Midpoint Action

When I commented yesterday on the big market rally, I left something out.

I was focused on the impact of this week’s Uranus/Pluto waxing square on Janet Yellen’s natal horoscope.

I neglected to mention an important transiting dynamic.

A Market Rally Alignment

The Sun was square the Juipiter/Apollon midpoint as the market rally was in full swing.

My friend Bill Sarubbi (known to many as Bill Meridian, author of The Predictive Power of Eclipse Paths and other essential works on astro-trading) pointed out the omission.

I’m truly grateful that he brought it to my attention.

Some years ago it was Bill, along with Charles Emerson and Gary Christen, who encouraged me to look at the Transneptunian factors like Apollon in my astrological work.

Arch Crawford also helped push me in that direction.

Even though I resisted the notion of “hypothetical planets” at first, I finally gave it a look.

I’ve been hooked ever since.

The Transneptunians can indeed add important information to our astrological interpretations. And because they are slow-moving, even generational in their influence, they’re especially useful in mundane astrology and macro-economic considerations.

Apollon is the Transneptunian factor that’s connected with global expansion, the growth of science and technology, commercial activity, and the spreading of influence far and wide.

In combination with Jupiter, it’s a classic indicator of big money. That can be expressed in individual wealth or in the capitalization of a major corporation.

It can also mean a market rally.

What Alfred Witte Said

The comments of Alfred Witte, who literally wrote the book on Transneptunian influences, certainly support the idea of a market rally getting triggered by Jupiter/Apollon action.

(You can read Witte’s remarks on the subject in this article on “What Witte Said About The Sun At The Jupiter/Apollon Midpoint”).

What’s even more interesting, though, is what we can learn by back-testing the effects of eighth-harmonic solar alignments with the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint.

This chart shows the tendency toward a market rally after this alignment. It’s based on the events that took place over the last 30 years. But it doesn’t include the Sun’s square to the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint yesterday.

SunJupiterApollon Market Rally
When the Sun hits the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint, it can trigger a market rally in large-cap equities.

As you can see, the idea of the Sun in contact with the transiting Jupiter/Apollon midpoint being connected with a market rally doesn’t look too bad.

A Caution About Predicting A Market Rally

Even so, it’s important not to jump to conclusions. Although the impact of the Sun’s square to the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint was certainly evident in the market rally this week, it doesn’t happen all the time.

In fact, a market rally fails to materialize most of the time.

Remember that we get eight eighth-harmonic alignments of the Sun to the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint each year.

While they do in fact bring stock prices up on average, we don’t see a market rally of historical proportions each time they occur.

Note as well that the average pop in the S&P after a solar contact with the Jupiter/Apollon midpoint tends to be about one-third of one percent.

That’s nothing like the market rally we’ve seen in the past couple of days!

Watching Gold with the Sun and Kronos

I’ve really been amazed at the consistency with which the planetary price action of the Sun and Kronos defines significant movements in Gold trading.

It’s particularly exciting because it shows us the ways that the Transneptunian factors can be used as active indicators in our day-to-day trading.

And with specific Sun/Kronos alignments coming up in the months ahead, it’s important to keep an eye on the potential impact on Gold, especially since the yellow metal has been under such stress lately.

I recently put an article on this subject, along with some charts you may find interesting, on the FinancialCyclesWeekly.com website.

A New Look at the Venus Stock Market Trading Top

During my interview with Michael Yorba on his Traders Network radio show yesterday, we had a chance to talk about the role that Venus has been playing in defining price levels for this week’s stock market trading top.

In our previous conversation I had identified Venus-based price resistance as potentially stopping the advance in the S&P 500 at 1903.35, based on the work I had done using techniques developed by W. D. Gann to analyze the Venus/Pluto waxing square on May 14. (You’ll find more details on that forecast on my May 8 Blog Post.)

As it turned out, however, the exact time for the stock market trading top was at 10:44 Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, May 13, with the S&P turning at 1902.17 instead.

S&P 500 Stock Market Trading at Venus Top
A look at the one-minute price bars for the S&P 500 shows the way that planetary price action can influence stock market trading opportunities. The trading top came at 10:44 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, May 13, 2014.

When Michael and I discussed this yesterday, he was quick to praise the accuracy of my forecast, and I talked about the role that the upcoming Mars station is already playing in speeding up some of the planetary phenomena that we’re looking at as potential movers of the price action in stock market trading right now.

After the radio interview, however, I did some more thinking about what had happened in the markets earlier in the week.

Why had the resistance point been hit on Tuesday instead of Wednesday?

And why was the top at 1902 instead of 1903? I was a little puzzled.

Then it dawned on me.

Venus moves pretty fast, so on May 13 it wasn’t yet in a position that corresponded with 1903 in the S&P!

I took a look at the horoscope for the actual trading top, and calculated the S&P price level that corresponded with the position of Venus when the stock market trading top occurred:

Venus Position at Trading Top
The red arrow here points to the position of Venus at the precise time that the action in stock market trading with the S&P 500 hit its high of 1902.17 (the exact Venus location corresponded to 1902.05).

Obviously, 1902.05 is a lot closer to 1902.17 than 1903.35 is– so close, in fact, that it unequivocally confirms the role Venus has been playing in articulating active price resistance this week.

But what was Venus doing that made the market turn on May 13 instead of May 14?

The 90-degree dial for the stock market trading top answered that question fast:

Venus Trading Top 90-degree Dial
The position of Venus (at the red pointer) on the 90-degree dial for the moment of the trading top in stock market trading on May 13, 2014 shows its activation of the Mars/Zeus midpoint (indicating decision action and a technical turning point) and the Jupiter/Kronos midpoint (growth to the highest possible level) – a combination that clearly signals the potential for a trading top at that time, with Venus defining the exact price level.

This unique combination of midpoint structures provides a startling definition of a trading top. And these specific planetary signals also gave us a dramatic reminder of just how important it is for us to use transneptunian factors like Zeus and Kronos in our astro-trading forecasts!

The bottom line here is this– not all of our forecasts are correct, but when they miss the mark (even very slightly), it’s sometimes worth the extra effort to take another look to see what we can learn in retrospect.

That’s how the art and science of astro-trading keep moving ahead!

So Why Is a 150-Degree Angle Important?

Earlier today, about five hours before the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange, we got the planet Uranus lining up with the Transneptunian factor Poseidon to form a waxing quincunx.

A quincunx is a 150-degree angular alignment between two planets.

It’s not one of the classic Ptolemaic aspects from traditional astrology, so there are a lot of astrologers who ignore it completely.

They prefer to focus on the squares and trines and oppositions that appear in their horoscopes.

But in my work as an astro-trader in analyzing the potential for turning points in the markets, I’ve often found that it’s a good idea to pay attention to a quincunx whenever it appears.

Especially in a case like today, when the quincunx has special significance.

The Uranus/Poseidon combination hints of sudden or surprising shifts in sentiment, or even of a lightning-bolt inspiration that provides a fresh perspective. It can easily be associated with a pivot point in the markets as traders change their minds about the potential direction of future trading activity.

But this Uranus/Poseidon waxing quincunx carries implications that go beyond those symbolic connections.

As the Uranus/Poseidon alignment occurred earlier today, it provided a dynamic reinforcement of the current Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto T-Square pattern that’s currently moving into place.

That pattern will reach its strongest point on April 20-21, and it could signal a big shift in market direction. But between now and then, every planetary alignment to either Jupiter, Uranus, or Pluto carries some extra weight, since it can amplify the developing T-Square pattern and potentially trigger corrective action in the markets.

Will we see a pull-back in the stock market today with the Uranus/Poseidon waxing quincunx?

I don’t know for sure. The S&P has been hitting resistance repeatedly in recent trading sessions, but has been trading up somewhat today.

Even so, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Uranus/Poseidon waxing quincunx trigger an intra-day reversal, sending stock prices lower before the closing bell.

Looking for a Push to a Fresh Trading Top

With so much big planetary action coming up this week after Thursday’s lunar syzygy New Moon, it’s easy to see that a big shift in the markets is likely to occur.

But how will that play out?

When I was interviewed yesterday by Michael Yorba on his radio show, we discussed the possibility of stock prices moving higher this week, culminating in a short-term trading top on Thursday or Friday.

If that scenario pans out, we could see prices start to fall in the markets either on Friday, January 31 or Monday, February 3.

In any case, we’ll be paying close attention to be alert to the development of big market moves.

Here’s a recording of my interview with Yorba on Monday:

By the way, during the interview I mentioned the importance of Kronos in tracking the price of Gold. This transneptunian factor continues to give us amazing market correlations.

Here’s the chart I mentioned during the interview:

Gold Chart with Sun & Kronos 27 January 2014
The price action in the Gold market (shown here with daily bars for the World Gold Index) conforms dramatically to the planetary dynamics of the Sun and Kronos. The low last summer was at the Sun/Kronos conjunction, while the more recent low in December came at the Sun/Kronos opposition.

Jupiter & Admetos Inspire the Bulls

In apparently arbitrary fashion, the equities markets decided to ignore some of the grim geopolitical events and their potential consequences today. Instead they got back to the business of celebrating some of the bright spots on the economic horizon.

At least it seemed to be arbitrary to the mainstream financial media.

They really seemed to be at a loss to explain the modest price increases in the major market indices.

But of course they aren’t using astrology.

We had forecast a 57% likelihood of higher stock prices today, based in part on our observations of the historic responses to two key planetary factors: a retrograde station by the transneptunian factor Admetos and a waxing 45-degree alignment between Jupiter and Admetos.

Our research has shown that Admetos retrograde stations have about a 68% probability of triggering bullish responses in the markets. Waxing Jupiter/Admetos semi-squares prompt higher stock prices about 60% of the time.

So even though this wasn’t a slam-dunk kind of forecast, we did have some reasonable expectations that the markets would respond with a positive price move.

Jupiter and the Admetos Retrograde Station

We got the Admetos retrograde station at this morning at 1:14 a.m. EDT, about eight hours before the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange.

When the market closed at 4:00 p.m., Jupiter was applying to its semi-square with Admetos, an angular relationship that was exact about three-and-a-half hours later.

As it turned out, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 48.38 points today, up 0.33%.

The S&P 500 gained 4.48 points, to add 0.27%.

The NASDAQ picked up 0.41% by gaining 14.83 points.

While there certainly isn’t anything earth-shattering about these results, it’s encouraging to see the markets responding to the planetary influences.

That’s especially true when a transneptunian factor like Admetos is involved.

Many astrologers ignore the transneptunians altogether, but I find them worth watching, time and time again.
