Dear Fellow Star-Gazers,
Happy Wolf, Hunger or Snow Full Moon!
There are many names for this full moon when it seems we are looking and listening for something…….
On January 18th a rare magnetic wave passed over Norway with a pulse or vibration that some thought musical. Then the European Space Agency, announced that they’d found a star-system roughly 200 light years
distant, that has at least five orbiting orbits whose cycles make ordered repeats which can be expressed as notes in a pentatonic scale.
Whilst thinking about the cosmos and the ‘music of the spheres’ another email landed: this time to my retired percussionist husband. This was a cartoon of a cymbal player ready and waiting for his big moment in front
of a page of music that was scattered with repeats of ‘not yet, not yet, not yet etc’.
The link between these emails and the Financial Universe’? Perhaps the recent Jupiter-Saturn Great conjunction is a musical modulation. We are all required to sing or operate in new key- and yes, there will be climaxes
and ‘crashes’ along the way. In the financial universe, developing sectors will introduce us to new sounds and melodies and will probably take markets to new highs – though likely not before there has been a correction.
Before the next Full Moon on February 27th, Mercury turns retrograde (this weekend) and Saturn and Uranus reach their Last Quarter phase. Similar planetary conditions were at work in 1999 when the S&P
index rose to 1422 at the exact alignment on July 19th (this year on February 17th) and fell over the next few weeks to 1322 on August 9th. As we know, the cosmos doesn’t ‘do’ exact repeats. Yet it is probable that in the weeks following the February alignment, the retrograde phase in June, and again in December, that there will be buying opportunities.
EQUITIES and PANDEMIC
Monday February 1st could see a short term low before markets rise again into the Saturn-Uranus square on February 17th before turning negative in March.
Soaring markets at a time of pandemic seems counter intuitive. The awesome costs associated with this pandemic will eventually have to be met. That may be at the end of the year when the nodal cycle moves from
Gemini-Sagittarius to Taurus-Scorpio. And yes, I do fear that 2021 will end on a sour financial note.
For those with courage to stay in the market, the cycles of the planet suggests growth in the health-sector, ocean (especially clean-up) and water-related industries (including aqua-farming). Technical stocks too
should do well though we should note that these would be super-vulnerable if satellites were knocked out of action should they be affected by a CME from the Sun. Perhaps the answer is to invest in private generators and solar power.
The Bitcoin presentation is ready and once this letter is mailed I plan to record it. If you have not yet registered interest, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be available for purchase via the website early next week.
In ‘Exploring the Financial Universe’ I showed that 19 degrees of Capricorn was a sensitive area with regard to global financial dramas. (Interestingly, there is a Black Hole at this degree which is also Pluto’s South
Node). I ought not to have been surprised that the heliocentric chart for August 18th 2008 – when bitcoin.org was registered – shows a grand cross pivoted on this degree.
Bitcoin is the crypto currency with which most people are familiar. It has just completed its Jupiter return and, in keeping with that optimism, its price rose - only to fall back as Saturn made its presence felt. Yet
it is far from the only ‘crypto on the block. Chainlink (the name itself a wonderful combination of Saturn and Uranus) has also done well in recent times. Looking ahead, I wonder if the price of PolkaDot will increase once Jupiter moves into Pisces in May.
GOLD and precious metals.
Whilst I am confident that we are moving toward a world of crypto-currencies, gold and precious metals will surely always have their place. For a start, they are not vulnerable to solar conditions and satellite
performance! I am particularly interested to see if there is a spike in the gold price around February 12th.
POLITICS and COSMIC DOWNLOADING
It was felt by some that that a ‘crash’ would be heard at the Inauguration event as Mars and Uranus conjoined on the horizon in Washington. These two planets are often in tight configuration at times of sudden
violence. The storming of the Capitol took place a few days earlier –just as Mars moved into the same sign as transiting Uranus. A repeat event is most unlikely, but perhaps all should be on alert for trouble around the solar eclipse on June 10th.
(I could argue that the conjunction was heard – but not as a harsh 23’’ cymbal sound or violent outburst, but by the poet whose voice commanded attention and the unexpected mastery of language she
TRADING WITH THE MOON, 2021 FORECASTS and BITCOIN FORECAST
There has been a delightfully positive response to my ‘Trading with the Moon’ webinar and to the 2021 Forecast. Both are available via www.financialuniverse.co.uk Bitcoin will be available this weekend and then
the next financial masterclass SUN and MARS.
Michael has now had both does of the vaccine. The last few weeks have not been without incident (not related to the vaccine) but once again he seems to be stabilizing. Covid restrictions limit the support we can have
but, amazingly, we are muddling along. I have no doubt whatsoever that your collective good wishes have made a real difference. On February 12th it will be exactly one year since his tear to the aorta and the subsequent 10 days in intensive care. Unbelievable really to know that as I write this he is in the other room reading the newspaper. A miracle. Thank you all.
Until next time, wishing you and yours well and safe
Yours from the stars
