Mars-Saturn Showdown Looms

The Mars-Saturn opposition coming up on May 29 is an event that we’ll be watching closely.

It has market-moving potential.

For that matter, though, all Mars-Saturn alignments are worth keeping an eye on.

These two planets are the Lesser and Greater Melefics of classical astrology.

Traditionally they were the Bringers of Bad Things.

Mars is about aggression. It’s conflict and acts of violence. It’s wounds, cuts, burns and injuries.

When Mars is doing its thing, you’ll want to avoid open flames and sharp objects.

Saturn, on the other hand, is about restriction and separation. It’s lack, poverty, and destitution.

Saturn enforces rules, imposes limits, and shuts things down. It teaches us important lessons. It insists on being taken seriously.

So a Mars-Saturn opposition is not something  to take lightly.

A Mars-Saturn Face-Off In The Markets

What’s interesting, though, is that Mars and Saturn don’t always act like malefics in the markets.

At least Mars-Saturn dynamics are not always extremely bearish.

In fact, they sometimes produce the opposite effect.

If the right supporting planetary dynamics are in play, a Mars-Saturn opposition can trigger an aggressive rally in U.S. equities markets.

That’s exactly what we’re looking for following the May 29 Mars-Saturn face-off.

As we close out May and move into early June, we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the Dow Jones Industrial Average get back into full-blown rally mode.

The same goes for the S&P 500 Index.

We may even see new all-time highs in both indices.

Don’t Jump To Conclusions

There’s an important word of caution, however.

Don’t make assumptions about the impact of Mars and Saturn as they line up in their next opposition.

Trump Transits Trigger Market Plunge

The Trump Transits giveth, and the Trump Transits taketh away.

They brought us a huge rally after the election.

But now they’ve changed their tune. Is an unprecedented crash in the works next?

Trump Transits Spell Trouble

The Current Trump Transits Spell Trouble for the Markets

As I highlighted last week in a special webinar session, we can expect to see ever-more extreme market reactions.

Those reactions, I suggested, are due to U.S. President Donald J. Trump and his bizarre behavior.

The session focused specifically on What’s Behind The Huge Horoscope Threat To Donald Trump.

Let’s face it.

The influence of Trump can’t be ignored.

And today, with the Trump Transits in full swing, it was awesome.

We saw surging political instability trigger wild selling in the markets.

It was a blood bath.

The Dow Jones Industrials were down 372.82 points, for a net decline of 1.78%

The S&P 500 Index took a 43.64-point nose dive, giving up 1.82% in a single trading session.

The NASDAQ Composite got clobbered with a spectacular loss 158.63 points, dropping by 2.57%.

And the Russell 2000 took the booby prize with a loss of 38.79 points, for a net plunge of 2.78% for the day. That drop was big enough to put the Russell into negative territory for the year to date.

Trump Transits In Full Swing

Not a good day, any way you look at it.

But what’s chilling here is Donald Trump’s horoscope.

It’s really being whacked right now.

And there’s more.

Looking at the chart for the Justice Department is amazing, too!

Did you know the Justice Department is going through a Saturn Return?

That’s a stressful thing for individuals, of course. And it isn’t very pleasant for governmental organizations, either.

We got into all that, and a lot more, during the webinar.

I’ve just been reviewing the recording of that event. And as is so often the case, it leaves me in awe of the true power of astrology!
