Here are some astro-financial predictions for October 1-3, 2014. Predictions for the rest of the month and a month overview to follow soon.
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.]
OCTOBER: As mentioned in the September post, transiting Uranus Rx (sudden change/surprise/revolution/electronics) will be opposing US Saturn (government/control/authority) almost the entire month of October. In the US chart, Saturn is positioned in the 10th house of leadership and role on the global arena and its rules the 2nd house of financial sector/banks. I expect this transit to bring unexpected changes in the financial sector – for example, some unforeseen circumstances may undermine the stability of the financial sector or individual banks. Alternatively, we may hear about a surprising innovation or regulation (e.g., related to electronic transactions or cryptocurrencies). This influence will be the strongest September 03 – October 25 (esp. Sep 29-Oct 01).
[As a side note, I would say that Apply Pay digital wallet is a good example of this transit’s energy—the combination of financial services and a new electronic way of paying, which may require new governmental regulations. The transit’s influence is not over yet, and we may well see a few more manifestations before the end of Oct.]
USA: Around October 10, plus/minus 1-2 weeks, should be a very good time for the US in terms of being recognized for its leadership, and/or it will be a time when its leaders will feel more empowered and supported by the public. Additionally or alternatively, some new laws may be passed or proposed that relate to profits from investments, taxes, insurance, mining, oil drilling, and research in general—if any such laws are up for discussion, they will likely be approved swiftly and without much objection.
October 1 (Wed): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%). The down influence is stronger globally than for the US—in the US, the news may be more upbeat and/or there may be a sense of “gluttony” and “greed,” as if investors wanted still higher gains and weren’t yet satisfied.
October 1 – 6: Increased focus in the news and communication about things related to medicines, health, water, poisons, oil, and deceptions/lies. Some hidden info may become obvious (e.g., new info is discovered through research or comes from underground sources, like mines or secret service, etc.) and this revelation may in some way aid businesses that deal with the areas above (e.g., healthcare). The info that comes forward may also be related to taxes or insurance, especially life-insurance.
October 3 – 6: Period when any sort of airstrikes or military activities delivered through air/space or electronically (e.g., cyber-attacks) will be more easily accomplished, or there will be more of them [because circumstances make it easier somehow to proceed with those]. Non-violent manifestation of this energy could be invention of new electronic weapons, or, weapons that use air/space. Weather-wise, there is an increased likelihood of massive fires, and/or, we may hear about a solar storm or a fire affecting electronics (esp. airplanes and telecommunicaions).
October 2 (Th): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is stronger globally than for the US—the mood in the US may continue being optimistic and/or the investors may likely be in the mood to risk some more money hoping for greater profits. Thus, the market in the US may potentially not go down as much or go down slightly and quickly recover with many people buying the dips.
October 3 (Fr): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%). The down influence is stronger globally than for the US.
At a glance, Oct 6-8 (following Mon-Wed) look like strong influence days, esp. Oct 8, with the market possibly going up. There is also an increased chance of the news from the US about its financial system (e.g., some key issue is highlighted or an authority makes a decision on it).
