Brainstorming Monday - part 1

1. The stars preparing us for some wild swings as Pluto goes stationary today reactivating the malicious T-square but we will have to way a few more days as we are heading for a weird full moon around the 22nd which will exactly land on the Jupiter Uranus conjunction on one hand marking a volatile high but at the same time activate the above mentioned T-square. As the Moon enters the sagitarius factır early this week we kick off with an upside gap breaking above a 4 day resistance for the SPX short term heading for our final target zone 1120-30 where trading longs need to be sold before entering shorts the next days. We should see within the week already a retreat in the second part but start with an upside bias the week after again.
Sentiment has approved quite a bit on the bullish side but overall we are rather neutral yet which should improve towards the Full Moon substantially creating the downside scope. The Obama deception machinery will keep markets up til the midterms but we will see swings on both sides starting this week and getting more volatile next.

Short-Term Geocosmics

The next 1-4 weeks could get very wild. The geocosmic climate becomes very intense once again, which usually means the political and economic arenas are in store for some sudden shocks. Nature may also become very explosive, as in earthquakes and hurricanes.

On Sunday, September 12, Mercury will end its retrograde motion. The next day, Pluto will also end its retrograde motion and both will turn direct. That means the principles of Mercury combined with Pluto are highlighted at this time. Mercury rules the field of communications. It has reign over commerce and business transactions, as well as acknowledging the importance of words, especially in agreements. Pluto rules research, investigation, and exposures. It also pertains to debt, taxes, and the urge to change or reform matters of the economy. Sometimes Pluto can be nasty, as when the intent is to cause harm or ruin to others. Thus we may see announcements of new discoveries in science and medicine on the one hand, but also news stories that reveal secret discussions, decisions, or acts that create problems for the subject. In economic matters, plans to change the financial direction of nations, such as the USA, may be announced. We may also hear harmful accusations hurled at one’s opponents. It is campaign season after all. But the tone may be overly harsh and cutting. The purpose of these stories is either to transform or destroy, and one should consider the source of this information, if it can even be known.

It doesn’t change much the next day, as Mars begins its 6-week journey through Scorpio on September 14. Mars co-rules Scorpio, along with—guess who?—Pluto. It’s all about debt again, and the fear of an economic collapse, coincident with loud calls for reform. Heads may fall soon, for Pluto and Scorpio both can represent termination, as in “You are fired.”

The first three days of this new week are also highlighted because the Moon will be in Sagittarius, a placement we refer to as “The Sagittarius Factor.” During this 2-3 day period every month, financial markets are prone to large price swings, especially in precious metals and Treasuries. For that matter, so does the entire time of Mars in Scorpio. I don’t believe there is a planet-sign correlation to precious metals as strong as Mars in certain degrees of Scorpio. But keep in mind this correlation is not 100%, and it doesn’t last through the entirety of the sign.

Longer-Term Thoughts

Get ready for “The Return of the Climax: The Sequel.”

We spent the first three years of the 2008-2015Cardinal Climax falling deeper and deeper into an economic abyss that peaked astrologically with the period of July 21-August 21. We previously identified that time band as the fifth of five stages of ever-tightening orbs between the planets involved in the Cardinal Climax. This was when Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and the Moon’sNorth Node were all in cardinal signs, as close to exactness in a hard T-square configuration as they will all ever come to one another. Nothing like this has happened since June-July 1931.

The fourth layer—the one just before July 21-August 21—occurred in late May through early June when Jupiter and Uranus both moved into the cardinal sign of Aries and formed the first of their three conjunctions with one another on June 8. We are back into that fourth layer again as the second passage of the Jupiter-Uranusconjunction unfolds next weekend, September 18. There is a slight difference this time however, as the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction takes place in 28-29 degrees of Pisces, instead of 0 degrees of Aries. Pisces rules compassion, altruism, and the desire to help others who are in crisis, or need help just to survive.

In terms of recent government action, it is noteworthy that when the National Health Care Act finally passed in March 2010, both Jupiter and Uranus were in Pisces. As they return via retrograde motion to the sign of universal health care, there is talk of repealing, or at least going back and reviewing some of the features included in this bill. Will the Republicans be successful in repealing the entire bill? Probably not.
