2015-2016: During this time, transiting Pluto (major transformation, life-death, rebirth, [nuclear] power, dictatorship, terrorism, violence, etc.) will form a tense square aspect to Saturn in the US chart, where it sits in the 10th house and rules the 2nd. The 2nd house relates to financial matters and banks, while the 10th is the house of government and large corporations (for expanded meaning of houses in mundane astrology see http://www.moonvalleyastrologer.com/the-houses-in-mundane-astrology/ for example). Thus, we can expect a major change in how banks and financial institutions operate and save their profits. On the dates when the aspect is exact (listed below) as well as 1-2 weeks before and after, expect important events or regulations that put stress on banks and affect their ability to make or keep money. Since Pluto is passing through Capricorn, the source of stress/pressure will be government and/or large corporations. Financial institutions will likely perceive the events or regulations as drastic and restrictive (e.g., banks may be required to keep tighter control of funds).
2015: Feb 20, June 15, and Dec 24
2016: Sep 26
Jan – Feb 2015: Increased probability of unexpected and likely distressing events related to taxes, insurance, investments, banks, debt, interest rates, as well as international relationships (incl. travel and immigration), higher education, and publishing. The types of events include sudden start or ending of a project/relationship, passing of an unexpected ruling, or even death of some leader. This influence peaks around Feb 1-2, but will be strongly felt 1-2 weeks before and after.
JAN 26, 2015 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is stronger for the US than globally.
USA: There may be increased news about financial institutions pre-open or early in the morning. The news may be positive or be about a revision of something — like no decision is made and the ongoing state of affairs is allowed to continue, because some info needs to be reviewed before the decision can be made. Additionally, there may be a public announcement by or about a leader from a financial institution — potentially about someone leaving or ending some cycle.
JAN 27, 2015 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is stronger in the morning.
JAN 28, 2015 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%). The down influence is stronger in the late afternoon.
Jan 28-29: Increased likelihood of concerns about money availability, decreased profits (especially from oil, drugs, medicines, etc.), stress over regulations that restrict money flow, decreased spending, etc.
JAN 29, 2015 (TH): Strong influence; market will probably go down (75%). The down influence is stronger globally than for the US.
Jan 29-30: Increased news about telecoms, electronic devices, electric cars, computers, airspace, and anything that relates to electricity. The news may related to some revision, retraction, re-evaluation, etc.
USA: There may be brief positive news about the labor market, health system, non-profits that focus on social improvements (e.g., providing care for needy), or relationships with allies and partners (other countries).
JAN 30, 2015 (FR): Low-medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up influence is stronger in the morning; the direction may change to down in the late afternoon.
