Dear Fellow Stargazers,
Happy First Full Moon of 2024: the Wolf Moon
and happy Re-evolution
Yesterday, for the first time since
1778, and from the heliocentric perspective, Pluto entered Aquarius. In the 18th Century a similar ingress coincided with the birth of America. Is it possible that 2024 will similarly see the birth of a new nation? (Gaza???)
(As a side note: last Sunday, and from the geocentric perspective, Pluto made its Aquarius ingress and the surprise political development was Ron DeSantis dropping out of the US Presidential
Whichever perspective you use, echoes of 1778, 1532 and 1238 (all years when Pluto moved into Aquarius) will surely be heard across the world - internally as well as externally.
It is worth wondering what kind of re-evolution you will experience. Aquarius is one of the Air signs - so what kind of revolutionary thought will you bring to
In 1781, as Pluto moved through Aquarius, the planet Uranus was discovered and astrologers had to incorporate that new planet into their thinking - and later, Neptune and Pluto.
Mirroring that time, our charts are becoming 'busier' as we learn the glyphs for the dwarf planets circling beyond Pluto. If you are excited and want to know
more, then please visit www.moreplutos.com. Even better, buy the book of the same name. You won't be disappointed.
As fascinating as learning about the dwarf planets is watching movements in global stock markets. Like people, they are all different of course - each responds to planetary signatures in different ways. The Dow Jones has
broken through 38,000. Can it go higher, or is there a correction on the horizon?
My basic rule is that if you can find at least three clues indicating similar ideas, then a forecast is likely to transpire. When researching my book, 'Exploring the Financial Universe', I noted that corrections coincided with Chiron/Node aspects. Another clue was activity at 19 degrees of any of the Cardinal signs (where the Node is
Chiron and the Node conjoin on March 5th - not so many days distant from the anniversary of previous market falls. This conjunction is heralded in late February by a Sun-Mercury-Saturn formation which likely signifies the brakes being applied.
Further, as Wall Street closes in Monday 26th February, Uranus (unexpected) is on the
Midheaven. This date could mark the start of a slide that continues into early March - but which promises buying opportunity.
Whereas 1776-1806 (the last time Pluto moved through Aquarius) coincided with the French, American and Industrial Revolutions - not to mention major events in Asia, - the 2024 ingress will surely usher in twenty years of equal drama. Artificial Intelligence and Robotic revolution and
developments – especially in crypto currencies, gaming and space age technology will shake our known world. I will be looking closely at companies working in these fields and will present some of my thinking in the next monthly finance class on Sunday February 18th. (see below for enrolment options).
Bitcoin has fallen almost 20% since its astrologically forecast launch of its US ETF token. That tide should turn after Uranus stations this weekend. Full and immediate recovery is unlikely and February 9th through 14th particularly volatile. More lows could be reached in the run up to the next Full Moon on Feb 24th - although there are likely to be major gains in the third quarter of 2024.
feedback from my recent Astro-Crypto webinar was excellent and in response to requests, another will be offered in early July. A recording of the January event is available via the website.
Every nation has at least one 'birth' chart: indicated by the date of independence or acceptance of new
government and a series of charts is studied. Israel came into being in May 1948 and both Jupiter and Uranus are moving toward the position held by the Sun on that day. Whilst the appalling attacks of October 2023 were not forecast, the challenge to its leadership most certainly has been. Expect major developments before that country's 'birth day' in May.
Mars and Pluto conjoin in Aquarius for the first time in over 200
years on Valentine's Day. I hope that we will witness a 'love bomb'. Pollyanna thinking possibly - but I prefer that to thinking the unthinkable.
Of course, this alignment will be felt by all countries. Let's hope that it coincides with waves of out of the box thinking that brings an end to the many cycles of violence.
That is not impossible given
that the planetary picture for today's Full Moon has Jupiter prominently placed. International Law could yet hold sway and, as mentioned in my last letter, the stirring of a revitalised United Nations result in talk of judicial peace not war.
MONTHLY CLASS AND FINANCIAL COURSE
This letter is
coming to you from Florida where I am speaking for the SFAA for the first time in 5 years! I am SO, so looking forward to reconnecting with my Florida astro-tribe.
On my return, I will resume the monthly webinar series and announce dates for the long-awaited financial course.
Wishing you and yours safe, well and a peaceful, healthy and contented 2024
Yours from the stars
