The big Cardinal Grand Cross hit its peak on April 22-23, giving us a real focal point in the Stock Market Collision Course we’ve been experiencing during the past few months.
But even though that powerful planetary alignment is behind us now, it’s still making its influence felt, thanks to some assistance from other planets.
Right now, for example, transiting Venus is forming alignments with Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter, reactivating the energy of the Cardinal Grand Cross from last month. Although Venus alignments with these three planets are not rare events by any stretch of the imagination, the combination of all these trigger points in rapid-fire sequence is really an unusual occurrence
As I’ve noted before in previous blog posts and elsewhere, this Venus translation of the Cardinal Grand Cross has the potential for signaling a trading top in the equities markets. Based on the trading chart on this page, showing the intra-day price action for the S&P throughout the trading day today, we may already be seeing the first phase of just such a trading top.
What seems more likely at this point, however, is a strong bounce upward from the trading lows established today, with a push toward higher prices in equities as we move into the Mars direct station on May 19, with consequences that may be more unpredictable than expected as we head for a big leg downward after that.
Either way, I think it’s appropriate to emphasize the incredible insights that we benefit from as astro-traders, getting glimpses of future astrological patterns, market dynamics, and geopoliitcal events beofe they had an opportunity to make their full influence felt.
