Below are a few short predictions for early May 2013. Am a bit busy this week, so will work on the detailed daily predictions for the rest of the month over the weekend. Also, beginning in May, I will be incorporating heliocentric charts into the analytical process. Let’s see if this helps improve accuracy and/or provides useful insights.
May 1-3: In sum, things look ok for the US, with aspects to the US chart being mostly positive. Globally, tensions/push for a change and overturning old overly controlling governmental/corporate structures will continue to intensify. This will mostly be focused around banks/loans/bailouts, but also around governments/corporations and their leaders (e.g., demand for the new progressive leadership and protests against perceived governmental oppression—coming either from within or outside of one’s own country). There may be some tensions (events, protests?) around banks over the weekend, esp. Sat, which may possibly affect the market late on Fr.
May 1 (Wed): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). There may be minor upsetting news shortly before the market opens in NYC, but that influence should pass quickly. Overall, the day looks ok, especially for the US, so the market may then go up during the day. Late pm, however, the heliocentric Venus will be approaching a square with Neptune, which I expect to have a suppressing effect on the market. Hence, down overall for the day.
May 2 (Thur): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%). The UP influence seems stronger for the US than globally. For the US, there could be some positive developments/news related to housing.
May 3 (Fr): Medium mixed influence; market may possibly go down (55%). There may be an up move early am, with a down move late pm. Things look ok for the US, but globally, concerns over banks/loans/bailouts may yet again be on the rise. Heliocentrically, Mars will be approaching an opposition with Saturn & trine with Pluto (precise over the weekend). This is a progressive, albeit stressful influence, signifying changes in how banks operate (related to receiving/issuing loans and ties to governmental/corporate structures). While the influence will be the strongest over the weekend, it may still affect the end of the trading day on Fr.
Also, some unexpected news may come out in the after-hours, possibly related to IT, internet, telecommunications, phones, travel, airlines, etc. (e.g., about an innovative approach in one of these areas that goes against convention and standard corporate practices, or, against government regulations). There could also be some demand for freedom [of speech or communication, probably] against what is perceived as oppressive government/corporate control (e.g., protest demanding freedom of speech, privacy of communications, etc.).
Long-term thoughts: Focus on banks and restructuring of the financial sector (globally) will likely intensify in the upcoming months and even years. There are multiple indications of this, including a set of eclipses in Taurus/Scorpio late April and early May. I found interesting this video by Donna Page on the May 9-10, 2013 solar eclipse—in particular, her observation that the last Jupiter/Saturn conjunction occurred in Taurus close to the degrees of the eclipse (watch from min 12:18).
Moreover, as I mentioned previously, Dec 2015 will likely see a major financial reform implemented (or at least proposed) in the US. For a need for such a reform to arise, some issues must come up prior to that. For example, we could see increasing concerns about some banking processes, banks’ approach to handling money, mortgages/loans, etc. Some bank-related issues may become out of balance and may need to be corrected through a reform. Exactly who, what and how is a subject for a separate investigation.
