Here are some astro-financial predictions for March 2014. Since transits to the USA natal chart appear to strongly correlate with market moves, a few related observations are included as well. The predictions are based on simple reading of ephemeris, no other methods were considered. The direction is my best guess based on previous market direction changes under similar conditions; I included some approximate percentages to indicate how likely I think that the market will move in a particular direction. The work is done by hand, rather than with statistical software, and for fun only, so I would caution all readers to do their own research to detect any potential astro-financial trends with higher precision. [All calculations are for NYC, times are in EST; by “market” I mean mainly DJI and entities with similar trading pattern.]
MARCH: Tense month, with tension from the unfolding t-square among Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto building up to culminate or erupt in the 2nd half of April (next month) when these planets are joined by Mars to complete a Grand Cross.
Issues around domestic security, freedom, food supply, mortgages, banks and savings will be prominently featured. The tension will be between forces that somehow try to control the freedom, prevent growth in the areas above, or exert too much pressure and stifle the economic expansion. These limiting forces will likely come in the form of governmental regulation; alternatively, the limitation may come in the form of violence, war, terrorist acts, accidents (including nuclear), etc. There will likely be significant tension around issues of freedom/expansion on the one hand and control/oppression on the other. For example, some governmental regulation may be preventing banks from increasing their savings or profiting from lending money for mortgages. Or, some governmental entity will be acting in a dictatorial manner and try to suppress the freedom of the people or curb the expansion within a country.
The intense opposition between the forces desiring freedom/expansion and forces trying to prevent/control/regulate this expansion may lead to unexpected, sudden, and/or surprising actions by leaders. There is also an increased likelihood of accidents, angry outbursts, and even military intervention.
Yet another potential manifestation of the unfolding tense aspects is increased likelihood of accidents involving uncontrolled release of power (e.g., nuclear). In particular, it may be related to solid structures or earth/ground succumbing to some pressure (Pluto = nuclear power in Capricorn = earth), and/or, accidents due to fire or military actions (Uranus = accident in Aries = fire/war).
USA: Likely, increased international tensions or some sort of a threat (including from nuclear accidents), especially around March 11-12. The issue that arises at this time will resurface around May 17, 2014 and then culminate/reach resolution around January 4, 2015.
Mar 3 (Mon): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%). The down influence is strongest pre-open and in the early morning. Globally, there may be more stress than in the US.
Mar 4 (Tue): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%). During pre-open hours and in the early morning, there is increased probability of upsetting news related to military actions, leaders, or [angry] public gatherings/protests.
Mar 5 (Wed): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up influence is strongest in the early morning.
Mar 6 (Th): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is strongest in the early morning – there may be worries about governmental regulation of taxes, loans, rates, etc. Alternatively, concerns may involve regulation or stability of secretive/hidden programs or activities that take place underground. The situation may improve in the afternoon.
Mar 7 (Fr): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up influence is strongest in the morning; market may go down in the afternoon.
USA: Increased likelihood of positive news related to the entertainment industry (e.g., Hollywood, casinos, etc.). Alternatively, there may be increased news about military actions and/or activities involving taking risks.
Mar 10 (Mon): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%).
Mar 10-11 may see an increase in stressful news about governmental regulation of loans, taxes, rates, etc. The news may also involve restriction/control/contraction of businesses in the area of telecommunications, airspace, and/or electronics. The regulation/restriction may be unexpected.
USA: Possible action related to taxes, loans, or hidden/underground issues, such as spying, nuclear power, etc. The action would come easily, proceed without delay or struggle, and may take place behind the scenes or remain unannounced until later on.
Mar 11 (Tue): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%); the down influence is stronger in the morning.
Mar 12 (Wed): Strong influence; market will probably go down (70-75 %). There is increased likelihood of some laws/regulations being passed related to healthcare, drugs, and/or elderly care. The laws may involve taxes, loans, or be enacted in order to help eliminate hidden costs; alternatively, the costs may be hidden, so that the law could pass. Additionally, there could be increased news related to water – for example, that some structure is strengthened, removed, or excavated, so that the water can flow easily and without obstruction.
USA: A tense day. On a short-term scale, there may be some difficult situation/problem related to water (e.g., too much of it), hidden enemy, poison, drugs, healthcare, or elderly care. Additionally, there may be a public announcement about income of some social group(s) or earnings of companies from the following industries: telecoms, airspace, electronics, IT, etc.
On a longer-term scale, we may see a peak of tensions related to a situation that has been unfolding over the past several months or even years and that involves international relationships and/or loans, mortgages, taxes, and lending rates. Some entity or entities may be pressuring the US into changing its laws or international relationships. The situation may involve bank loans, spying, activities that are hidden or occur underground locations, and/or nuclear power. The pressure may be applied through manipulation, power plays, threats or even violence. This situation will continue to slowly unfold over the upcoming months and will resurface around May 17, 2014; the resolution/culmination will likely come around January 4, 2015.

March 14-16 are good days for diplomatic activities and strengthening partnerships with other countries.

USA: The mood on Mar 17-19 will likely be optimistic and hopeful – there may be good news or optimism about the US role on the international arena, its image, status, and partnerships.

On Mar 17-18, in the US there may be a public announcement about some social group(s) or a leader. The news may also be related to the financial system, taxes, and/or loans. It will probably involve some sort of a change or new leadership – the change or the new leader will not be popular or will be controversial/go against an established trend.

Mar 24 (Mon): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (65-70%). Very tense morning and pre-open hours, possibly due to some stressful news coming in on Friday or Saturday. Greater than usual probability of accidents, sudden military actions, or violence.

This may involve domestic disturbances, accidents (incl. at nuclear sites), banks experiencing problems (esp. related to mortgages), disruption of food supply, etc.
USA: Likely, minor international tensions involving miscommunication (e.g., international communication goes wrong or is suddenly cut off), or just increased negotiations.

These restrictions may be in the area of telecommunications, electronics, space, airlines, and inventions in general, etc. The mood may be more somber, realistic, and practical than usual. At the same time, these days offer a good opportunity for revising/establishing new rules of how government should regulate expenses or control financial system.

Mar 28 (Fr): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (65-70%). The down influence is stronger globally than for the US.

USA: Favorable day for the entertainment industry (e.g., art events, film, casinos, etc.), speculation, and for undertaking risky activities that may be viewed is a gamble. For example, the country may choose to proceed in the direction that may be risky financially.
