Knights Templar Astro-Trading?

I really didn’t expect the Knights Templar to get into the conversatio.

I had a great interview with Larry Pesavento on his Trade What You See program yesterday.

We talked about trends in the markets, of course.

But our whole conversation was really wide-ranging.

We went from William Lilly and horary astrology to short-term trading cycles and J. P. Morgan.

And at one point Larry made a surprising comment.

I had been describing some intriguing facts about astrological history, and he told me that “it sounds like something coming out of the Knights Templar!”

He was apparently hinting at conspiracy theories, but I’m not sure.

Maybe it’s something I should look into.

Check out this video of our interview. Then tell me what you think:

An Exceptional Jupiter Retrograde Station

A Jupiter retrograde station isn’t terribly rare,

We get one every year, followed by a direct station about four months later.

When we back-test the impact of Jupiter retrograde stations on the price action in the S&P 500 Index, we get a pretty straightforward picture of their effect:

The stock market index typically rallies for about three weeks prior to the date of the station, and then goes into a period of congested trading before moving into a decline about three weeks following the retrograde station.

This is the usual market behavior when we lump all Jupiter retrograde stations together, regardless of their zodiac position.

Taken as a group, the Fire sign examples of the Jupiter retrograde station look like this in their average impact on the S&P:

A look at the Jupiter retrograde station examples in mutable signs reveals their similarity to the average Jupiter retrograde station results overall. It looks like this:

When we examine Jupiter retrograde stations as distinguished by their individual zodiac sign, however, we discover that the market’s reaction can vary widely, depending on the particular zodiac sign involved.

Jupiter retrograde stations in Aries and Scorpio, for example, bring more bearish responses, while those in Cancer and Libra tend to be more bullish. And then there’s Sagittarius.

The S&P action when Jupiter goes retrograde in Sagittarius is strongly bullish.

The Last Jupiter Retrograde Station In Sagittarius Was In 2007

It’s been a long time since we saw the last Jupiter retrograde station in Sagittarius.

Jupiter Retrograde Station 2007

The last time we had a Jupiter retrograde station in Sagittarius, on April 5, 2007, the S&P 500 responded with a strong two-month rally supported by a Gann line, with the index climbing by more than six percent before it broke support. Four months later, on October 11, 2007, the S&P set a new record high of 1576.09 after adding an additional three percent to its upward move. That high, of course, led to the sell-off culminating in the crash of 2008, marking the beginning of the Great Recession. The S&P wouldn’t get back to trading at its 2007 high price levels until April 2013.

That’s important to us today because Jupiter is about to go retrograde at 24º Sagittarius on Wednesday, April 10.

We expect a bullish response, although it may include some trading consolidation along the way. That positive expectation is reinforced by the Jupiter station’s position relative to the chart for the New York Stock Exchange – it activates the Uranus/Kronos midpoint, suggesting a sudden surge to new trading highs.

Trading Turn Just Ahead

The Spring Equinox is coming up fast, giving us an opportunity for an important trading turn.

It’s big enough to impact all the markets.

The equinox marks the passage of the Sun into Aries.

It’s the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere, and the start of Autumn south of the equator.

It was a favorite timing indicator for trading turn calculation by W. D. Gann, the pioneering astro-trader.

Gann also marked the date prominently on his trading squares and wheels as he pondered the market action with his unique price and time tools.

Setting Up A Trading Turn

This year’s Spring Equinox is on March 20 – that’s less than a week away.

It’s going to be especially powerful. That’s why we’re looking for to trigger a significant trading turn.

Why is this one more powerful than usual?

It’s because the astrological events surrounding the equinox create a piling-on effect.

This year the Spring Equinox comes on the same day as a Full Moon.

In fact, those two events are less than four hours apart.

And on top of that, we’ll be getting lots of extra action in planetary declination on the same day.

The Sun will be parallel the current two-eclipse midpoint.

The Sun will be parallel the January eclipse antiscion.

The Sun will be parallel the eclipse point from the solar eclipse last August.

And the Sun will also be parallel the eclipse antiscion from that same August solar eclipse.

Since some of that planetary action will be precise in the hours following the closing bell on March 20, we may actually see the trading turn hitting on March 21 instead.

But whether a trading turn comes on March 20 or on March 21, the current uptrend suggests a shift to the downside.

That gives a reason to believe that a trading turn next week will mark a short-term trading top.

Where Is Tim?

“Where is Tim?” was the question Larry Pesavento was getting every day.

“You cause me more trouble than any of the guests that I have!” he exclaimed as we began our interview yesterday on his Trade What You See program on TFNN.

I laughed. What else could I do?

I was a little nervous.

But as it turned out, Larry Pesavento’s complaint was actually based on a positive event.

It seems that I had been attracting a lot of attention during my recent appearances on his show.

The Question Was: “Where is Tim?”

Larry explained that he had been getting steady calls and emails from his listeners.

“Every single day, they’re saying ‘Where is Tim? Where is Tim?'” he reported.

Apparently his fans are rapidly getting tuned in to the enormous market power of the astro-trading advantage.

They’re becoming aware of the fact that it offers something different.

And they’re learning that astrology-based forecasting can add incredible accuracy to timing effective trades.

They want more astrology. And they want to know what’s coming up next in the markets.

It all started with a visit I had shared with Larry in an interview on his show near the end of December.

The astro-cycle forecast we discussed then turned out to be spot-on in its accuracy.

Updating The Forecast

During our time together yesterday, we updated the forecast.

Where Is Tim - Alternate Cycles

Alternate Astro-Cycle Projections

We took a look at alternate cycle projections.

I also discussed the roots of our methods in Uranian Astrology and in the work of W. D. Gann.

And we talked about cold soup and wilted salads!

Here’s the complete interview from yesterday’s program:

By the way, we had a really big crowd for the free webinar on What’s Working Now In Astro-Trading.

It was live on Monday, February 18 – and we recorded the entire event!

Hidden Market Stress Point

There’s a hidden market stress point coming up that we need to pay attention to.

As astro-traders, we are continuously looking ahead toward upcoming planetary phenomena that have the potential to impact market behavior, providing us with trading opportunities.

Most of the time those phenomena are ones that we see repeated with some regularity: solar and lunar eclipses, planetary stations and ingresses, and aspect alignments of planetary pairs, especially those involving the outer planets or transneptunian factors.

But there are also times when we see hidden market stress points triggered by planetary configurations outside the realm of our “standard” expectations.

Mars, Neptune & Vulcanus Create A Hidden Market Stress Point

That’s what’s going on with the hidden market stress point this week.

During a recent scan of the 45º graphic ephemeris for the first few months of 2019, we spotted a planetary cluster on February 14. It included Mars, Neptune, and Vulcanus all coming together in an eighth-harmonic alignment.

Mars-Neputne-Vulcanus Hidden Market Stress Point

With a closer examination of the transiting planetary dynamics we found that the closest alignment of these three planetary bodies will be at 19:56 Eastern Standard Time on that date.

As shown on the 90º dial, this configuration appears with Mars and Vulcanus combined at the large red pointer, and Neptune in an eighth-harmonic position at the opposite side of the wheel.

This alignment triggers the midpoints for Moon/Mercury (emotionally charged communications) and Cupido/Admetos (destruction of alliances and associations).

The Mars/Vulcanus combination activated by Neptune is an indication of enormous amounts of effort being expended to create little or no results in a colossal waste of energy, with work coming to a standstill in an atmosphere of lies, paranoid thinking and delusional behavior.

We’re certainly likely to see circumstances like this play out in international affairs and domestic politics. We can also expect some reverberation in the markets as well, thanks to this hidden market stress point.

Mars Vulcanus Eighth Harmonic

Our back-testing chart shows just how disruptive waxing Mars/Neptune semi-squares can be on price trends in the S&P. This kind of action can create a very challenging trading environment, to say the least.

It’s also important that even though the planetary action will be in focus on February 14 and 15, the U.S. markets will be closed on Monday, February 18.

So it may be Tuesday, February 19 before we comprehend the full impact of this unusual alignment.

Bitcoin Trading Channels

When I connected with Larry Pesavento yesterday for an interview on his Trade What You See program on the Tiger Financial News Network, we talked about bitcoin trading channels.

bitcoin trading channels

Mercury and Vulcanus were in alignment at the all-time high for bitcoin in December, 2017, and they still work to define bitcoin trading channels today.

We also talked about upcoming trends in the S&P 500 Index, SuperMoons, astro-meteorology, and a whole lot more.

Why Bitcoin Trading Channels Are Important

But the bitcoin trading channels were a key point in our discussion. They’re a favorite topic on TFNN.  especially since there’s so much continuing interest in cryptocurrencies.

That’s even more true among traders who are looking for quick profits from their market activity.

Many traders would prefer to see a return to the kind of speculative bubble we saw in late 2017. But paying attention to the trading channels can reveal equally strong opportunities.

All you have to do is be willing to trade along within the boundaries of the current trading channels. Then watch for breakouts, shifts and divergences.

Here’s a video recording of the complete interview with Larry Pesavento on February 1, 2019:

2019 Strategies For Business Success

What are the best 2019 strategies for success in your business?

You want to bring in more money, of course. If you’re in business, you’re always looking to boost sales and revenue.

But what if you want more than that?

What if your business has a higher purpose, beyond the bottom line?

What if you’re trying to support a cause or serve a need?

Express your creativity or save the planet?

What 2019 strategies should you be looking for then?

And what’s the biggest problem you’re likely to encounter?

It’s not unusual for some entrepreneurs, especially those just starting out in business, to get so embroiled in one specific problem that they become overwhelmed.

They suffer from a kind of tunnel vision.

It short-circuits real insights and solutions while breeding obsessive behavior as the struggle to regain control spirals into a self-fulfilling prophecy of defeat.

Not good, to say the least.

But creating and managing a business doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. All businesses confront problems from time to time, but those problems can be overcome.

With sufficient data and a broad enough perspective, you can spot the big opportunities that come disguised as obstacles and challenges!

Anticipating Cycle Shifts

For more than 30 years, my work at has focused on business cycles and market trends. During that time, we’ve done a huge amount of research.

As a result, we’ve learned how to anticipate the big stresses and challenges that periodically confront all businesses, both big and small.

You and your business are no exception. And 2019 will inevitably bring you a lot of stress.

Whether you’re a brand manager at a Fortune 500 company, the CEO of a fast-paced smaller enterprise pushing to hit the $100 million-a-year revenue mark, or a soloprenuer who’s just getting started, the big challenges facing you in 2019 are remarkably similar.

And in every case, no matter what the size of your business is, you’ll have to determine exactly what your 2019 strategies are going to be.

2019 Strategies for Enlightened Entrepreneurs & Purpose-Driven Businesses

Needless to say, now is the time to figure that out.

The New Year is just days away.

And as I’ve been pointing out recently, we can expect big changes.

That’s why I made this quick video for you:

Enjoy! Then start getting your 2019 strategies together today.

Market’s Best Day Ever

Today was the market’s best day ever.

For the bulls, it was a welcome relief from the relentless sell-off that has brought the major market indices to the brink of bear territory.

By the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had boomed forward by 4.98%, adding a whopping 1086.25 to finish the trading day at 22,878.41.

The S&P 500 followed suite. It gained 116.60 to end the session at 2467.70. That was a gain of 4.96% for the day.

The Russell 2000 Index matched that 4.96% bounce. It added 62.89 points to close at 1329.81.

And the market’s best day treated the NASDAQ especially well. The tech-heavy index was up 361.44 points. That represented a gain of 5.84% and a closing price of 6554.55.

The Market’s Best Day Matched Our Forecast Perfectly

Some traders, weary of the ongoing price decline of the past couple of months, may have been surprised by the rebound.

We weren’t.

In our members-only conference call with Financial Cycles Weekly Gold-Plus Elite members on Sunday, December 16, we specifically flagged this date.

According to  our cycle studies and astrological analysis, we had determined that December 26 has a 75% likelihood of bringing a higher close in stock prices.

Almost a slam dunk.

(I have to admit that I hadn’t actually anticipated that today would be the market’s best day ever. But with that 75% probability I felt quite certain that we would be seeing a rebound in stocks.)

Sharing The Forecast With Larry

When Larry Pesavento interviewed me on Monday, December 24, we talked about today as well.

I had pointed out we had just come to the end of a rare double retrograde cycle. The Venus retrograde which helped trigger the market sell-off had been followed by Mercury retrograde.

That dynamic ended Monday with Mercury’s retrograde return.

Larry  said that it was remarkable to hear a bullish voice. But he also noted that the astrological charts I shared confirmed his own analysis.

You can see the entire interview replay HERE.

So there was much to celebrate today.

Not just the market’s best day ever – but a great confirmation for financial astrology, too!

Double Retrograde Discussion with Larry Pesavento

When Larry Pesavento interviewed me this morning, we had a chance to talk about the impact of the recent double retrograde phenomenon.

We also took a look at the upcoming trends in the equities markets.

We even got in a bird’s eye view of the cryptocurrency markets.

Interview Recording

Here’s the entire interview, featuring the double retrograde impact and a whole lot more. It was broadcast earlier today on internet TV:

Double Retrograde Effect

The first of the trading charts that we shared with Larry during our conversation this morning dealt specifically with the double retrograde alignment. That’s what has coincided so sharply with the market action overall.

Solstice Energies

As we’ve noted repeatedly during the past few weeks, the Winter Solstice has the potential for triggering a short-term rally in stock prices.

Astro-Cycle Projection Dates

We found further confirmation for short-term swing action to the upside when we looked at this astro-cycle trading chart.

Solar Eclipse Webinar

We think that the solar eclipse coming up on January 5 is going to have an unexpectedly strong effect on the globe as a whole. That’s why I’m doing a special free webinar on the eclipse on December 28.
