Solstice Spirituality

Today is the Winter Solstice, with the Sun entering the sign of Capricorn for important market signals – and a source of solstice spirituality.

Solstice Spirituality In Chart

The Capricorn Ingress at the Winter Solstice as shown on the 90-degree horoscope dial.

The solstices and the equinoxes were extremely important to the pioneering astro-trader W. D. Gann, who focused on them as potential turning points in market activity.

They’re still worth tracking today as important market indicators.

And, with the U.S. equities markets currently in a dizzying downturn, we have every right to focus on the solar Capricorn ingress at this solstice as a potential setup for a trading bottom.

Back-testing the S&P 500 Index at the Winter Solstce.

Based on our back-testing of the S&P Index performance at previous solar ingresses into Capricorn, we actually anticipated a trend reversal at the end of last week. We were looking for the pre-solstice energy kicking off an early start to a Santa Claus rally.

No such luck.

What we’ve seen instead is a week of persistent bearishness. Stock trading this month is shaping up to be the worst December since the Great Depression.

High-End Rainmaker Clients

As is normal for this time of the year, I’ve been spending extra time with my high-end clients.

These are the rainmaker clients who rely on regular coaching and consulting sessions to draw on my years of experience as they work to create more profitable and rewarding businesses. We develop unique strategies based on their specific goals and visions, so they get an enormous pay-off from our regular times together.

Around the end of the year, we naturally focus on the upcoming year ahead. We explore the actions that have the greatest probability of bringing them outstanding business results.

By the way, it was just that kind of engagement that led me to put together a brief report on Three Key Strategies For Business Success in 2019. The approaches it explores are especially appropriate for purpose-driven business and enlightened entrepreneurs, especially in the light of solstice spirituality. It’s available as a free download HERE.

My connection with my personal clients is tremendously rewarding for us both.

We get to share important insights. I provide major decision-making support services. We also typically have a lot of fun together as we toward more profitability and higher consciousness in their businesses.

And that’s not all.

A Link To Solstice Spirituality

For example, I got a WhatsApp message earlier today.

As a seasonal observation, one of those high-end rainmaker clients sent me a special greeting and a link to a recording of Manly Palmer Hall.  It got me focused on solstice spirituality.

As it turned out, that was exactly where my head needed to go today in the midst of market trepidation and geopolitical turbulence. So I want to give a special shout-out and word of thanks to Mikel for sharing that today.

Manly P. Hall, by the way, has long been a source of major inspiration for me both personally and professionally.

As the founder of the Philosophical Research Society, he contributed many amazing books and monographs  during his lifetime (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) that explored classical philosophy, ancient civilizations, world religions, and esoteric traditions ancient and modern. He was perhaps best known for his mammoth volume on The Secret Teachings of All Ages.

The recording, appropriately enough, is of a lecture that Manly P. Hall gave more than 30 years ago on the Winter Solstice.

It shares a lot of esoteric and astrological wisdom. As a source of solstice spirituality, it’s well worth listening to.

Bitcoin Buy Signal – Solar Cycle Swing Trade

When is a big bitcoin sell-off actually a bitcoin buy signal?

The plunge in bitcoin during the past few days has really been something to behold!

bitcoin buy signal chart

After three and a half months in a narrow trading range (which included a couple of failed rally attempts), the cryptocurrency has seen a quick series of serious price plunges.

Is This The End For Bitcoin?

Crypto skeptics have been quick to jump aboard the doom-saying bandwagon.

Nouriel Roubini tweeted: “With BTC down almost 80% from peak (from 20K to ~4K) & all other cryptocurrencies down 80% to 99% I rest my case that this crypto bubble went bust for good. I feel vindicated.”

Others attributed the bitcoin sell-off to the fallout from the contentious hard fork and the current hash power battle between Bitcoin Cash SV and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).  On November 15, the price of BCH suffered a massive plunge, dropping from $450 to $270, with BCHABC also suffering significantly from the conflict.

As Roger Ver, a renowned cryptocurrency investor and Bitcoin.com CEO, said, “no one wins a war. Some just lose less than others.”

Why This May Be A Bitcoin Buy Signal

But even so, does this selling frenzy really mean the ultimate end for bitcoin?

Isn’t it just as likely that we’re seeing an important bitcoin buy signal instead?

A lot depends, of course, on exactly how we choose to interpret the current bitcoin price action.

Is the glass half empty or half full?

Is this potentially a clear Bitcoin Buy Signal for Dedicated HODLers?

If you’re a HODLer, a dedicated fan of the cryptocurrency who’s committed to holding on for dear life in the midst of market chaos, it’s still important to understand the ways that cycle dynamics can impact bitcoin price action.

It’s not about buy-and-hold as a general principle and long-term strategy. It’s also about increasing your potential returns from the markets based on a clear set of ego-driven needs.

In other words, the need to be right ranks pretty high on the list of HODLer priorities. But if that’s your alignment in the cryptocurrency market, this is definitely a time to buy.

Solar Cycles Create Bitcoin Buy Signal

But that’s not all.

Tim Bost with New Book showing bitcoin buy signal

When we were doing the research for our book on Bitcoin Astrology earlier this year, we paid particular attention to the planetary phenomena that can help set up potentially profitable bitcoin trades.

Because they have had more iterations than some other phenomena, we found that some solar cycles are particularly significant.

One of them is described on page 113 of the Bitcoin Astrology book: the Sun transiting from 29 degrees Scorpio to 4 degrees Sagittarius.

Based on the six previous examples of this transit during the trading history of bitcoin, we found that it has coincided with rising bitcoin prices 100 percent of the time.

In other words,  this is an extremely strong bitcoin buy signal.

Even more importantly, it’s a signal that applies right now.

At about 4:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time this morning (November 21) the Sun hit 29 degrees Scorpio, creating this bullish bitcoin buy signal.

The bullish transit will conclude at 3:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

So, with bitcoin currently trading at about 4441.81 per US dollar, we’re entering a long position for a short-term swing trade, in spite of the big selloff that’s been underway for the past few days.

We’ll exit the trade late on Monday – and see how well this particular bitcoin buy signal performs this time around!

Number Day Demonstrated Amazing Timing Techniques

We had our Number Day workshop last Friday.

It was truly a remarkable experience!

I was personally very glad that we were able to pull off the event at all. Just a couple of days earlier, Florida had been hit by Hurricane Michael.

That storm brought unexpectedly high levels of devastation in many parts of the state, but here in Palmetto we were spared a direct hit.

Even so, the hurricane provided some major disruptions to travel plans. Some folks who had planned to join us for Number Day weren’t able to make the necessary connections.

As a result, we had a fairly small group in attendance – but that wasn’t a bad thing at all.

It meant that we could spend some extra time providing individual attention, making sure that everybody was on track with the concepts and techniques we were discussing.

In-Depth Number Day Discussions

Those discussions that we shared on Number Day were what made the day so deeply rewarding.

Our focus for the day was Market Timing With Numerology and the Law of Vibration.

We were able to do a deep-dive into the esoteric meanings of numbers.

We talked about ancient Greek philosophers and about the breakthrough mathematical thinking of R. Buckminster Fuller.

Square of Nine

The W. D. Gann Square of Nine Wheel

We took a look at the Universal Clock and at W. D. Gann’s Square of Nine. They’re both great tools for examining number connections in the markets.

We got a richer understanding of cycles in the markets and cycles in the lives of individual traders, too. That was particularly valuable knowledge for anyone who wanted to activate the complete Trading Triad.

We even explored the work of Sydney Omarr and Carl Payne Tobey in developing the mysterious Thought Dial, and took a leap into intuitive number applications.

Practical Timing For Traders

Most of all, though, Number Day was about the specific application of numbers and number theory to market timing.

We used current market examples for a real-time, seat-of-the-pants demonstration of Gann methods and Power Number techniques.

The results were really exciting!

Number Day On Video

What really pleases me the most, though, is that we were able to capture the entire Number Day event on video.

All the lectures and presentations, all the discussions. The entire power-packed day!

Our plan is to release the video from the day on a set of DVDs, to make it easy for those who were unable to attend to get the full range of insights and information that we shared on Friday.

The DVDs on Market Timing with Numerology and the Law of Vibration should be ready for release in about 5 or 6 weeks.

Brett Kavanaugh Birth Time

Brett Kavanaugh was a big point of focus during our special Venus In Reverse workshop last week.

He wasn’t the sole topic, of course.

We also provided detailed forecasts for Gold, Crude Oil, the Hang Seng, the S&P and a whole lot more.

But with the Venus retrograde period just ahead of us – and with Supreme CourtVen nominee Brett Kavanaugh very much in the media spotlight, his name certainly came up.

Brett Kavanaugh

Judge Brett Kavanaugh

When we had our workshop on Tuesday, September 25, the accusations about his personal history of sexual assault were just starting to percolate.

Two days later, on September 27, Judge Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford both testified under oath before the U.S.Senate Judiciary Committee.

Then on Friday, the Senate Committee voted to send the nomination to the full Senate, but with the provision that the FBI re-open its background check into the candidate.

That’s when I put together a short video detailing some of the potential Venus repercussions for Brett Kavanaugh.

I posted it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/5gPlKQT6_To

A Rectified Birth Time From Ivey Henderson

That six-minute video, along with its revelations about the Venus cycle, has been producing some interesting responses, including an email from Ivey Henderson.

Ivey wrote me:

“I just viewed your YouTube clip of Kavanaugh and retrograde Venus….

“I have a rectified time…. of his birth and i can’t state its accuracy. Time used 3:38:44 am.

“As I see it Hades/Venus stands out strongly in his chart by itself…. It seems that retrogradeVenus re-enforces his being drawn to females whom he feel would be easy marks.

“Using the natal Hades/Venus midpoint and the pointer on the Node make an aspect to the this midpoint.

“While also on the date in which Venus goes retrograde… it is pulled into the picture.
What I also find interesting is creating a three part planetary picture…. Hades + Venus -Node which indicates  Connection with prostitutes. Connection with low people, who offer their services.”

Brett Kavanaugh On The 90-Degree Dial

Brett Kavanaugh Venus Station Dial

Brett Kavanaugh 90-Degree Dial with transiting positions at the Venus retrograde station on October 5, 2018

This dial illustrates the planetary dynamics that Ivey Henderson mentioned.

Based on the rectified birth time, it’s worth noting that the Venus retrograde station also activates Kavanaugh’s natal Mars/Ascendant midpoint. That’s an appropriate representation of his explosive public anger and outbursts during the Committee hearing last week!

Equinox Forecast with Larry Pesavento

I had an opportunity to share my equinox forecast during a great interview yesterday with Larry Pesavento on his “Trade What You See” radio show on TFNN.

As with any major pivot point in the markets, a calendar-based equinox forecast is not just about a specific date (although that’s certainly important).

As we look ahead with this equinox forecast, we’re much more concerned about the specific astrological alignments that can trigger significant market movements.

S&P Equinox Forecast

Fall Equinox Forecast Chart for the S&P 500

In this case, that’s the upcoming Cardinal Ingress just a few days from now – the movement of the Sun into the zodiacal sign of Libra.

What W. D. Gann Saw In An Equinox Forecast

This key passage into Libra is the Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. It’s the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere, marking the first day of Spring.

It’s an event that W. D. Gann paid a lot of attention to. He knew just how significant it can be in triggering key turning points in the overall market environment. It also impacts specific trade set-ups as well.

In fact, Gann gave special attention to all four Cardinal Ingresses each year – not only in his published forecasts and work for his private clients, but also in his own chart work and personal assessments of emerging market trends.

His remarkable insights can be applied to any equinox effectively. They are also useful whenever there’s a solstice, at the start of Winter or Summer.

A Particularly Powerful Example

In this particular case, the upcoming equinox looks like it will be a particularly powerful turning point in the market action.

That likelihood is due to the fact that the equinox isn’t acting alone. It’s combined with other planetary influences. It needs to be taken into context.

When we focus on the broader picture, we can gain valuable insights.

We can also develop more effective trading strategies, and get more rewarding results in the markets, too!

Here’s the replay of the complete interview with Larry Pesavento:

Mercury Retrograde Ends At Last

Mercury retrograde.

What a pain in the neck.

What a pain in the posterior, too.

I’ve been working with astrology for well over 50 years. But I still haven’t gotten completely used to those annoying times when we have Mercury retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde Cycles

And those times aren’t  all that unusual, either.

As I noted in my book Mercury, Money & The Markets, we get a Mercury retrograde period about three times a year, for about three weeks each time.

I still get blind-sided.

I still make mistakes.

But I also get inspired to continue the Mercury research, looking for more correlations between planetary cycles and actions in the markets.

I shared some of that research during a live webinar earlier today. We focused on the impact of Mercury direct stations on a variety of market sectors.

Here’s an excerpt from that session:

Aretha Franklin Farewell

Aretha Franklin.

For some reason I can’t get her voice out of my head.

When she died a couple of days ago, I was of course reminded of her music.

Just like everybody else.

I heard her songs being played non-stop on the radio, in stores and restaurants, wherever I went.

Just like everybody else.

And just like everybody else, I found myself remembering where I was, and who I was with, when I first heard her amazing voice caress particular songs so deliciously.

I heard the tributes on the radio. I read the stories in Rolling Stone and the daily newspapers.

Aretha Franklin Got Paid In Cash

But there was one story that really struck me in particular. I don’t remember who told it, but it was during an interview of reminiscences about the Queen of Soul.Aretha Franklin Horoscope

At any rate, this person was recounting a visit to Aretha Franklin in her dressing room, just after she had completed a performance.

She was radiant, and apparently pleased with what she had been able to share with the audience earlier that evening.

And there, on the counter in here dressing room, was a big pile of $100 bills.

Aretha Franklin, its seems, like Chuck Berry and many other performers of her day, insisted that she be paid in cash when she performed.

Before she went on stage.

In $100 bills.

Talk about R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

Money In The Horoscope

Hearing that story, and imagining the huge pile of $100 bills, was a great experience.

It helped put the power of the great lady into perspective.

But it also reminded me of Aretha Franklin’s horoscope.

Her chart showed considerable musical talent, of course. She was, after all, a truly spectacular performer who never stopped honing her craft.

But her horoscope also showed a lot of money potential, too.

Making History, Music, and Money

And, it seems, she had a real knack for activating the money planets in her horoscope at just the right time for maximum financial benefit.

Like the time Jerry Wexler took her Muscle Shoals, Alabama for a history-making recording session.

It was an amazing event musically. But it was also amazing astrologically. You can read about it HERE.

Eclipse Effects Still Coming On Strong

Eclipse effects can be amazingly long-lasting.

The last of the summer eclipses was a week ago.

It was the partial solar eclipse on August 11.

Eclipse Effects Still To Come

It may seem like that was the end of the story.

But the biggest impacts of the entire eclipse series – two solar eclipses and one lunar eclipse – are still to come!

Whether you’re setting up trading strategies or just trying to keep up with world events, there’s a lot to prepare for.

That’s why we put together not one, but two special eclipse reports to review all the dimensions of these extraordinary events.

Despots & Decisions

Eclipse Effects - Despots Decisions

In the first one, Despots & Decisions, we drilled into the impact of the partial solar eclipse in July. We took a special look at the eclipse effects on leaders around the globe.

Each of these key people is experiencing the eclipse effects in some very different ways!

I guess we could say it’s just a case of Different Strokes for Different Folks – but when some of these folks have nuclear weapons and huge standing armies, it’s not quite so simple!

Irresistible Force

Eclipse Effects - Irresistible Force

In our second report, Irresistible Force, the focus was mainly on the impact of the partial solar eclipse in August.

What was noteworthy about that most recent solar eclipse was the Saros series it was a part of.

Prior to this August event, there had only been five previous eclipses in that series – and all of them took place at at times when we have stock market data for back-testing!

That’s a remarkable event as far as studying eclipse effects goes. So we took a deep-dive look into all those previous solar eclipses.

Double Eclipse Bundle

As I was saying, there’s a lot to prepare for during the coming months. And there are a lot of resources in these two in-depth reports.

Eclipse Effects - Double Eclipse Bundle

That’s why I’m glad my publisher has combined the e-book versions of these two publications into a special offer of a Double Eclipse Bundle.

You can get both e-books as an instant download – and save about 60 percent off the regular price of buying them individually.

It’s something you’ll definitely want to get your hands on. These are vital tools for getting the full advantage out of the eclipse effects that are still ahead!

For more information on the Double Eclipse Bundle, go to: http://bit.ly/18SE2eb

Be sure to take a look to get the full advantage of the opportunities ahead.
