Our growing team of Gold-Plus Elite members are well on their way to discovering what the astro-trading advantage is all about – congratulations to them all!

The Lunar Eclipse And Trading Opportunities

We got the latest lunar eclipse shortly after midnight Eastern time last night, and then earlier this evening I got together with a group of students and astro-traders to discuss the potential impact of this celestial event.

Our gathering was in an online webinar, and since this is a holiday weekend in the U.S. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the crowd that gathered. We had some of our Gold-Plus Elite members on hand, as well as some old friends and some newcomers, too!

In spite of a few technical glitches for some of the participants (the glitches come with the territory, I guess), we did get to go over the astrological chart for the lunar eclipse in some detail, and spent a good bit of time using the 90-degree dial to examine the planetary midpoint structures currently being activated.

After that we reviewed some of the major markets that we’re looking at for potential lunar eclipse effects, noting that there’s a particularly strong resonance with key horoscopes for equities markets in the U.S. and Europe, the precious metals, the U.S. dollar, and the euro as well. What this means is that we could see significant short-term trend reversals in any of these areas during the next few weeks, with the power of the lunar eclipse acting as a potential triggering factor or simply as reinforcement for technical dynamics in the markets.

During the final part of the webinar we used the 90-degree dial to examine the specific planetary interactions between the lunar eclipse and the First-Trade horoscopes of 19 specific stocks that have high-probability trading potential during the next few weeks.

Actually my plan was to review all 19 of those stocks during the webinar, but we just flat ran out of time, so we covered just a few of them as a demonstration of how the steps in lunar eclipse trade analysis actually work. If you joined the webinar and saw that demonstration, you might be interested in doing the follow-up we suggested and considering personal trades in some of these stocks. Here are the trading symbols:


With U.S. markets closed on Monday, the potential effects of this eclipse may be somewhat diminished by the time the opening bell rings on Tuesday morning. But even so, this is an astrological factor that’s likely to have a noticeable impact that will be well worth watching– and perhaps even trading, too.



Strange Creatures and Familiar Behavior

I’ve never personally been to Indonesia, but have had some great connections there in past years with students and clients who have been eager to profit from the astro-trading advantage. So I’m always excited when I can learn more about the place and what’s happening there.

Recently I was reading about the wonders of North Sulawesi there, which are largely overlooked by the rest of the world because they’re so remote. It’s a great place for whitewater rafting, trekking in amazing tropical surroundings, and spectacular scuba diving.

Lembeh Island View

Lembeh Island as seen from the Port of Bitung in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, with a portion of the strange waters of the Lembeh Strait in between.

But until today I had never heard of Lembeh Island, or of the Lembeh Strait which separates the island from the rest of North Sulawesi. This body of water has a reputation as the Strangest Square Mile of Ocean in the World, and after watching this video of the underwater critters there I can see why:

What immediately struck me when I looked at this was that even though the Bobbit worm, the hairy frogfish and the cuttlefish all have striking appearances and personalities, their behavior isn’t all that different from what might be observed during an active day on the trading floor of any major stock or futures exchange around the world.

We’re used to thinking about the markets being driven by fear and greed, but maybe even those primal emotions are a bit too sophisticated to explain the behavior that drives market prices up and down. Could it be just the result of some particularly bizarre characters acting out their bits in a cosmic Cycle of Life drama?

What’s This Lunar Eclipse All About?

Saturday’s lunar eclipse looks like it’s going to be serious business.

All lunar eclipses come at Full Moons, so we can certainly expect an extra dose of Full Moon energy.

But thanks to some extra planetary alignments that get plugged into the eclipse matrix, this cosmic event is likely to bring an extra powerful punch.

That’s why I’ve decided to do a special webinar on Saturday, the day of the eclipse.

We’ll start this special online session at 5:00 p.m. EDT that day.

There won’t be any charge for event, but since the numbers of lines that can connect is strictly limited by our webinar service, you will need to register ahead of time if you’d like to attend.

Uranus/Pluto Brings Massive Tornado Devastation and Huge Fireballs, Too!

The incredible devastation wreaked by the colossal tornado that swept through Oklahoma on Monday gave us a dramatic demonstration of the power of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square.

We won’t go into the details of the damage here, since the grim evidence is all over the mainstream media anyway, but we can’t ignore the astrological connections. The huge tornado touched down at 2:56 p.m. CDT, just five hours before the exact Uranus/Pluto alignment took place.

The exact moment of the alignment isn’t the critical factor, however. Even though it helps us time an astrological chart which can give us a focus point for understanding the true importance of the planetary dynamics at work, when we’re dealing with slow-moving outer planets like Uranus and Pluto we can expect to see the effects of their alignment not just at that precise moment, but at least for a day or two prior to and after the exact line-up.

As we’ve mentioned before, Uranus is the planet of surprises, and it lived up to its reputation this week– not only with the tornado, but also with appearance of four gigantic fireballs in the sky within all occurring nearly simultaneously just prior to the Uranus/Pluto square.

All of them were sighted in the U.S., with one appearing over the central east coast, one in Colorado, one in Arizona, and one over Arkansas and Missouri.

This Is Starting To Get Tense

With the next exact 90-degree alignment between Uranus and Pluto less than 48 hours away, it’s not surprising to see things heating up a bit in all sorts of arenas.

In Washington there’s a frenzy of congressional hearings, with most of the action focused on proving that absolutely everything the Obama administration does is wrong.The current issues range from Internal Revenue improprieties to muddled talking points for Sunday TV news shows, with the arguments and counter-arguments producing little except a lot of hard feelings and partisan animosity.

The U.S. Justice Department has admitted secretly accessing the telephone records of reporters from the Associated Press, raising serious questions about First Amendment violations. But the general public doesn’t seem to mind, since they don’t much like the news media anyway.

The market in Gold futures has shaken off its brief bout of optimism and renewed its sell-off, sending prices for the precious metal spiraling downward, to the consternation of the gold bugs.

And earlier today North Korea launched a trio of short-range missiles, causing its Pacific neighbors to snap to attention and most of the rest of the world to groan in dismay. It’s certainly not the first time that North Korea has lobbed around a few missiles just for the heck of it, but in the context of that nation’s insistence during recent weeks that a nuclear war with South Korea and the United States is imminent, today’s display does a lot to escalate international tensions.

With so many people truly weary of nonstop alarms, abuses, and provocations, the whole scene is enough to make you want to turn off the TV and curl up with a good book and an adult beverage instead.

And that’s why astrology can be so important.

With the advantage of astrological foresight, we’re able to identify times of major stress like this ahead of time.

We can put them in the proper perspective. In this case, for example, we know (thanks to the analysis in the monograph on The Uranus/Pluto Waxing Square 2012-2015) that we’re not yet halfway through a cycle of greatly intensified tensions, and we can look at the big Uranus/Pluto alignment coming up on May 20 as just one more flare-up in an extended period that demands exceptional intelligence, patience, and creativity on our part.

And, of course, as astro-traders we can also be alert for ways to reposition ourselves in the markets. Times of tension are particularly likely to produce major divergences in the trading environment, and if we can get past our dismay at the mean-spirited forces that surround us now, it’s quite possible that we’ll discover some very big opportunities!

The Joker Meets The Dwarf

Okay, so if Pluto’s really a dwarf planet, what’s the big deal?

In the first place, no matter what its official designation, it has a big impact on markets, raw materials, the economy and politics. It’s the planet of big power and big money.

In the second place, which is even more important, it’s getting ready to line up in an exact 90-degree angle with another heavy hitter from the solar system, Uranus.

That happens three days from now, on May 20th.

Uranus is the planet of surprises and explosions, of innovations and disruptive influences.

We could call Uranus the Joker– not so much a Joker of the Whoopie Cushion variety, but more like the Joker character in the Batman comics and movies.

While the Joker may be highly amused by his own antics, his jokes are always at somebody else’s expense. And since he’s most highly entertained by blowing things up, the results are often quite devastating.

So when the Joker squares off with the Dwarf on May 20, we’ll be looking for high tension in power politics, lots of stress in our personal lives, catastrophic events of one sort or another, and some big potential disruptions in the markets.

It’s the kind of thing that makes for extraordinary trading opportunities, if we know what to watch for.

If you have a copy of the monograph on The Uranus/Pluto Waxing Square 2012-2015, this is the time to take a look at it and review the trading strategies that it describes.

If you don’t have a copy, you can get one at a discount price as a part of the Uranus/Pluto Toolkit from Harmonic Research Associates at

Either way, be sure you’re ready for next week’s Uranus/Pluto square.

It’s sure to pack a very dramatic punch!

Power Planet or Dangerous Dwarf? Or Both?

It was back in 2006 that a group of astronomers got together and decided to give Pluto a hard time.

After spending more than three-quarters of a century with a widely-recognized status as the outermost planet in our solar system, Pluto was summarily booted off the list.

Pluto’s not a planet after all, the astronomers concluded.

At least not a full-fledged planet truly worthy of the name.

They decided to call it a dwarf planet instead.

No one seemed to worry about what Grumpy, Dopey, Sneezy and Bashful might think about that designation, but even so the announcement was made that we all henceforth had to think about Pluto in a different way.

Following the announcement there was some brief discussion in the scientific community. The public took brief notice when the item hit the cable news networks, but then yawned and went back to the sports scores and celebrity gossip.

And most astrologers essentially ignored the whole brouhaha. They continued using Pluto in their astrological charts, and continued to watch for its effects on individuals and group dynamics.

Which is a good thing, especially if you’re using astrology in the financial markets.

You see, whether Pluto is really a planet or a dwarf or none of the above, it clearly has strong correlations with price movements in the markets. It impacts equities, energy futures, precious metals, and a lot more besides.

That influence is most obvious whenever we get a retrograde or direct planetary station by Pluto, or whenever it makes a major alignment with another planet.

Which is what it will be doing on Monday, May 20, as it connects with Uranus in a powerful waxing square.

It’s an eventĀ  that’s pretty rare (the last time it happened was 130 years ago), so it’s worth preparing for.

That’s why we made it the subject of a special monograph on “The Uranus/Pluto Waxing Square 2012-2015” which is still available as a part of the Uranus/Pluto Toolkit.

It’s a great resource to help you prepare for the big alignment next Monday – you’ll find details at:

Just 7 Days Left Until The Next Big Astro-Event

We’re still getting some of the immediate residual effects of the solar eclipse last week, and it’s hard to believe that it’s already time to start bracing ourselves for the next big astrological event.

It’s the next iteration of the waxing Uranus/Pluto square, which comes into the picture next Monday, May 20.

This is alignment Number Three in a series of seven that started last year and will continue through the spring of 2015.

And based on the market action and geopolitical dynamics we saw during the first two alignments, it looks like we’d better brace ourselves this time, too!

After all, each one of these Uranus/Pluto squares has the potential to be enormously stressful, and the one next week is no exception.

During the next few days I’ll be going over my notes and reviewing the market track records from the previous alignments, and plan to share my observations with our members at in the next issue of my newsletter, scheduled for publication on Sunday evening, May 19.
