So to quickly follow-up on the “predictions for the week of Oct 3, 2011” post, it appears that on Oct 3, the square (tension/burst) between Mars (action) and Jupiter (abundance) did manifest among investors as an increased desire to act (Mars), with diminished concern about financial losses (square to Jupiter).
In my original prediction, however, I was expecting this aspect to manifest as increased optimism about buying shares (reduced fear of financial loss + desire to act = favorable for gambling). Instead, the desire to act (Mars) manifested more prominently as an urge to sell shares, even at a loss (square to Jupiter).
This “negative” manifestation reflected the overall fearful mood among investors (enhanced, no doubt, by the conjunction [union] of Moon [emotions/safety] and Pluto [death/transformation]), occurring that same day.
I do not expect the same fearful mood to persist on Oct 4, as both Mars-Jupiter square & Moon-Pluto conjunction are separating.
While I don’t have the time at the moment to analyze each upcoming day of the week play-by-play, I do see that there will be a conjunction between Mercury (news) and Saturn (oppression) on Thursday, October, 6, 2011. That same day, Moon will oppose Mars (irritability/fighting/fever)(exact shortly before markets open in NYC). My expectation is that some gloomy piece of news may color the mood for the day, especially early on, with a down move in DJI likely right at the opening (also 9:52-54am looks like a time when a down move may begin/strengthen).
