Dear Fellow Star-Gazers,
Happy Full Moon!.....and Happy New Year!
You can find my quick overview of 2021 on the website www.financialuniverse.co.uk
Looking further ahead: between 2023 and 2025, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto each change sign: just as they did exactly 300 years ago. In that earlier time, between 1723 and 1725, and just a decade after the Age of Enlightenment
was said to have begun, these same three slow moving planets made ingress. True, the zodiac signs involved are different. History never repeats exactly, but we might agree that we have indeed, as then, entered a new age. A great shift is taking place.
The 18th century Age of Enlightenment took place against the backdrop of a series of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in Fire signs. These ‘lit up’ the imaginations of powerful thinkers. Just ten days ago, Jupiter and
Saturn formed their first conjunction in an Air series that lasts for over two centuries. This is now the age of ideas and of reaching far beyond our selves: to the stars! We don’t as yet know what our new ‘age’ will be called – but we can know that we have entered it and that certain sectors will grow as demand increases.
The political landscape especially is set to change dramatically – and not just in the United States. True, by the next Full Moon the USA Presidential inauguration ceremony will have taken place – and what a chart that is!
Not only are many planets – and the Sun – grouped in Aquarius: a sign associated with freedom of thought and scientific development, but Mars and Uranus are EXACTLY aligned. This cycle has a justified reputation for sudden action – even explosion. In Taurus, this lends an image of charging bulls. US markets could surge but, at another level, we may see willful, physical aggression (in some areas of the world, the beat of war drums).
Neptune and asteroid Ceres (again in exact alignment) square the lunar nodes drawing attention to environmental issues (cleaning up the seas?). This might also be an astro-signature for spiritual awakening. Another option
could be receipt of messages from outer space – or human kind sending them perhaps.
But what really intrigues me about this chart is the alignment of Sedna, Saturn, Vesta and Venus in the 19th Harmonic. this harmonic seems to have resonance with artistic endeavour and 'speaking through the
Arts'. Perhaps it will mark a renaissance?
TRADE and PROGRESS
Neptune’s alignment with Vesta (the trader’s asteroid) has been in effect for some weeks. The delicate negotiations of the Brexit deal (where fishing (!) has been a contentious issue) and the transition from one
administration to another in the USA (where there is apparently confusion about who knows what) are near perfect expressions of this aspect at work. This aspect is exact in February and again at the beginning of July. Until it clears, ‘trading fog’ is probable.
Neptune has associations with media and theatre. Though no aspect on its own describes recent trading difficulties, the fact that these sectors have been hit so hard is significant. The good news is that ‘the curtain should
rise’ again mid year.
As written about in earlier missives, until the contra-parallel aspect between Neptune and Chiron finally clears (mid February) and, perhaps the quintile between Pluto and Chiron in March, the pandemic is set to dominate the
news. I hope however that by the Super-Moon on Aril 27th, that we will slowly be returning to ‘normal’ life. Certainly by Jupiter’s Pisces ingress mid-May, travel should return to normal with theatres and cinemas re-opening from July.
EQUITIES, BITCOIN and IPOs
I was chided by a reader for not being more specific about stock market movements. This letter can only provide generalization. What seems likely is that markets will continue their upward climb as the year opens, but show
volatility on Thursday January 14th and turn negative (temporarily) on Friday January 22nd.
Whilst trade in Bitcoin represents just a tiny fraction of trade, it has captured the imagination. The price rose as expected after the eclipse. This crypto though has a track record for soaring and falling. Though I would
agree that it is headed toward $30,000, there are still likely to be buying moments. You may remember that I offered a Bitcoin webinar if there was sufficient interest. It is clear that there is and my plan is to record this in the last week of January. Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested and haven’t yet registered that interest.
I will be looking closely at the companies who come to market after the next New Moon. A few will launch under auspicious conditions in January: in particular IPOs launched between 4th and 9th, Friday
15th and 26th through 29th.
GOLD, PLATINUM, PALLADIUM
Gold has suffered in recent weeks but could make upward move week beginning January 11th. I am also interested in palladium and platinum whose prices may rise from January 20th. Nor should I omit copper
whose price seems likely to increase further from January 7th.
2021 FORECAST and TRADING WITH THE MOON
The 2021 recorded forecast (60 GBP) with accompanying pdf is available. We continue to have difficulties with the Paypal button on the website but you can order it via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next masterclass in this series covers the Sun and Mars and will be available (nursing care permitting!) soon.
Yes, December hasn’t been easy. On the positive side, my husband is almost back to where we were this time last year (pre the tear to the aorta). The postural hypotension is a problem and, at times, nerve-wracking –
especially so, since agency care has been intermittent due to London’s Tier 4 restrictions. On-line consultations have become the norm for me and somehow or other we are hanging on in there: buoyed by numerous well-wishes which really do make a difference. Thank you for being there.
Wishing you all safe and well as we enter 2021, and looking forward to navigating the next few years with you.
Yours from the Stars
