As I noted recently in the latest installment of the Astro-Traders Tip of the Week, the big event that astro-traders need to keep an eye on right now is the conjunction of the Sun with Neptune at 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday night, February 25.
Potential EuroZone Confusion
This alignment will take place at 7 degrees Pisces, a position that puts it in conjunction with Saturn in the May 17, 1876 horoscope for the Amsterdam Stock Exchange.
While that connection suggests that we’ll want to watch for continuing developments in EU politics during the coming weeks, the Sun/Neptune combination promotes confusion and illusory thinking in general. This could mean some speculative opportunities that seem to be too good to be true (and probably are), along with duplicity, muddled market signals, and self-deception.
Why An Oil Prices Chart?
But Neptune is also traditionally associated with petroleum, so a horoscope for the conjunction tonight could in one sense be considered an oil prices chart as well.
The Sun/Neptune conjunction aligns with the midpoint of Chiron and Admetos, which suggests problematic circumstances with regard to basic raw materials, including petroleum. I noted the roles of Neptune and Admetos in a recent blog post on oil prices chart considerations.
Stressful situations like this one that include a Chiron factor often turn out to be blessings in disguise, however, especially for the financial players that have hidden interests or unexpected connections.
Note as well that the Sun/Neptune conjunction also activates the Hades/Poseidon midpoint (defective thinking, unclear communications, core deficiencies). There’s also an impact here on the Uranus/Apollon alignment (the tension of uncertainty impacted by sudden shifts in supply and demand).
Stock Trading Possibilities
While all these factors contribute to the usefulness of the Sun/Neptune conjunction horoscope as an oil prices chart, there are also opportunities for profitable stock market trades that accompany the Sun/Neptune conjunction.
As we noted in a recent article at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, “this planetary aspect typically follows an upward-trending market, which tends to culminate about nine or ten days after the alignment, prior to a strong sell-off.” That could offer some short-term trading opportunities now for savvy astro-traders – you can read about “The Sun/Neptune Conjunction and the S&P” HERE.
