Another busy week for me. 🙂 I will try to post predictions for the last week of October in the next few days. At a glance, Monday, October 27, looks like a very important day. Quite likely there will be a reversal over the weekend and/or from Monday to Tuesday (probably a LOW on Mon with the market turning up the following day on some positive news from the US). Also, Oct 27 will likely see a greater than usual focus on the stocks related to healthcare, medicines, etc.—their value will probably increase. Oil may also go up in value or at least there will be strong focus on it.
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 20 (Mon): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). The mood at the open may be gloomier than usual – conservative and/or rational voices will likely prevail over the voices encouraging riskier investment approaches.
In the early morning, there may be an important public announcement about partnerships, such as partners reaching a diplomatic solution, entering into an agreement, or reaching a compromise. The situation may involve an issue that had been brought up previously around September 16-17 and has since been reviewed, revised, reflected on, analyzed from a different perspective, subjected to internal deliberation, etc. In the near future, there may be a follow-up announcement or potentially a change in direction on this issue around October 29-31.
USA: Greater than usual probability of tensions about the US military involvement on a world stage and/or arguments over domestic policies, especially those related to ensuring domestic security, real estate, mortgages, food supply, and savings (by banks and public). Also, there is an increased chance of secretive financial dealings or manipulations becoming revealed. Alternatively, the revelation may have to do with expenses on healthcare, elderly care, social improvements, prisons, etc.
October 21 (Tue): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).
Oct 21-22: The mood will likely continue to be practical and rational rather than exuberant, but it will probably be slightly more optimistic [about financial stability] than on Monday.
USA: Increased concerns about expenses on healthcare, elderly care, social improvements, prisons, etc. will continue. Additionally, there may be higher than usual anxiety about financial manipulations of the banks or about the level of control/power that financial institutions have.
October 22 (Wed): Strong mixed influence; market may possibly go up (55%). Increased probability of an important announcement about relationship between important corporate players or countries. The issue will likely revolve around collaboration, entering into an agreement, or alternatively, breaking an agreement and pursuing independence. In sum, some decision may be made today about which parties are partners and which parties are enemies, who will be collaborating together and who will part ways.
October 23 (Th): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). The mood today will probably be fairly optimistic regarding the investment potential and possibility of continuing growth.
Oct 23-24: There will probably be increased focus in the news on the investments in general. The news will probably be positive or will be given a positive spin. Other topics that will likely also receive greater than usual coverage are taxes, insurance (especially life insurance), how to profit from something that’s dying (literally and figuratively), mines and anything dug up from the earth.
October 24 (Fr): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The mood will probably remain optimistic and the focus on the investments, taxes, insurance, etc. will remain strong; although compared to Thursday, some concerns may begin to creep in as to whether something is too good to be true.
This theme, of whether something is too good to be true or an illusion, will become even stronger on Monday, October 27, and may potentially result in the market reaching a bottom / LOW then. There is a possibility that this reversal energy will pick up speed as early as Friday, especially on Friday afternoon – and if so, we may see a drop in the afternoon.
