The August 16 Eclipse: Sell, Sell, Sell!

As my bio states on the “About” page, I’m not a registered investment adviser and any financial advice dispensed here is for entertainment purposes. Got that?

Having repeated my boilerplate for the Securities and Exchange Commission, I want to say that if there were ever a time to move out of stocks and into cash, this is it.

Even with the recent uptick in the U.S. dollar, I’m not sure that dollars are the place to keep your cash, but that’s another post. (See “The Word at UAC in Denver: The Dollar is Toast.”)

The Aug. 16 eclipse at 26 degrees of Aquarius looks very bad for Wall Street, not the least because it squares the natal Sun of the New York Stock Exchange chart. The Neptune conjunct Moon in Aquarius in the second house of resources and opposing the Sun in the eighth house of other people’s money suggests dissolution and deception down on the corner of Broad and Wall.

Perhaps the group that my financial friends call the “Plunge Protection Committee” has run out of tricks to keep the market aloft. A number of commentators including Jim Kunstler have compared today’s economy to the Wile E. Coyote cartoon where it takes him a while to figure out that he’s run off the cliff.

Nobody says it better than Jude’s Threshold in this post.

Market maven Ray Merriman notes there is a nice Venus/Jupiter trine on Aug. 16, but he doesn’t think it offsets the powerful Sun oppose Neptune in the eclipse chart. You’ll find his market commentary for this week here.

This is not a forecast for short-term traders, mind you. The trines between Jupiter and a bevy of planets in Virgo could keep the market above 11,000 well into October. Savvy traders always follow Merriman. This call to cash is for the rest of us, those of us who don’t want our 401(k)s to get trimmed by a third by yearend.

  3. GOD, Jesus Christ, Illuminati ancient Babylon and Astrology
    History shows us in ancient cultures throughout the world Mayans, Sumerians, Egyptians, Hindus, pharaohs, kings, queens, prophets, Presidents, Illuminati and those who hold power believe in astrology. Not Sunday morning newspaper or magazine astrology, but real astrological study, which is deep, profound, complicated and absolutely TRUE. The art is based on geometry, planetary angles energies, entities and gods
    The real thesis behind Astrology is reincarnation and the LAW. Which is that you will always be the victim of your own crimes or blessings. That’s why bad things happen to good people. You will always come back to be on the receiving end of your own actions. “What you shall sow, you shall reap” “Things that don’t make sense actually do make sense.
    Gods LAW is perfect. Astrology is GODS law. There are lower Gods but they are under the direction of the God’s perfect LAW.
    Jesus teachings are to have forgiveness and love for your enemy, “ turn thy cheek” do not retaliate for you are receiving punishment for previous incarnations. Live in truth, love charity, goodness and light. When you follow the teachings of Christ you are breaking the karmic bonds that keep you in perpetual hell bound to this solar plane. . Satan wants to keep you bound here for he is the accuser of man. Nobody will enter the kingdom of God but by the belief and teachings of Christ. The messages of Christ’s teaching are your salvation out of this solar plane. No soul will be allowed entry in to defile the kingdom of heaven unit he has reached perfection. Jesus said “I am not of this world” and “I didn’t come to destroy the Law but to fulfill it” (meaning the completion)
    The 12 astrological wheel of the lower gods that we are bound to is designed to grind us to perfection through the pain and suffering we ourselves create by our action and thoughts.
    The Illuminati the Antichrist are rebuilding and resurrecting ancient Babylon with statues and monuments for the worshiping of the 12 lower gods. Paganism is forbidden in the Old Testament Moses came down from the mountain and clearly stated.
    The first commandment says’ “You shall have no other gods before Me.”.
    Revelation clearly states that ancient Babylon will be resurrected here on earth and will be destroyed by the wrath of God.
    Throughout the Bible these gods are referred to as the “host of heaven” and for the pagan nations they became objects of worship. However, Israel was not to honor them with such worship:
    “And when you look up to the heavens and see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, do not be led astray and bow down to them and serve them, things that the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples everywhere under heaven. But the Lord has taken you and brought you out of the iron-smelter, out of Egypt, to become a people of his very own possession, as you are now.” (Deut. 4:19-20)

    Nostrodamus and Edgar Cayce were Christians and both of them and the bible refer to Satan (the antichrist) being loosened from hell. Satan and lower entities have been allowed to reincarnate in these last days to wreak havoc on humanity and to play out their role before the world. The Antichrist along with less evolved souls who are wreaking havoc on creation and humanity but they will be destroyed and again bound to the underworld for 1000 years and will not be allowed to incarnate and then will commence peace on earth with God and man.
    Pluto just completed its passing though Sagittarius and is now entering Capricorn until 2025. Capricorn rules Government, The God Pluto (Hades) symbolizes control, manipulation, the underworld, death and destruction. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was 1775, which stays in a sign for approximately 15 years. During that time we had the revolutions of man against government rule. We again are faced with the same struggle.
    Lower incarnated souls have been given power, money and control in this world to rule over the mass of humanity. You will witness the biggest battles of good and evil.
    When Pluto goes into Aquarius after 2025 within those following 15 years we will see the destruction of humanity on a grand scale, before Satan again is bound to the underworld.

    “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12

    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
    2 Corinthians 10

    For in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; Colossians 1:16

    Nostradamus EP205 through EP218 quatrains
    At this time the third King of the North, hearing the cries of the people of his principle title, will raise up a mighty army and will pass through the straights
    of his predecessors and ancestors, and will recoup most of it into possession, and the Great Vicar in the cap will be returned to his original state.
    But desolated, and then abandoned by all, he will return to find the Holy of Holies (Rome) destroyed by Paganism and the Old and New Testaments
    Will be thrown out and burned. After that the AntiChrist will be the infernal prince. And for the last time, all the kingdoms
    of Christianity, and even of the infidels, will tremble for the space of 25 years, and there will be more grievous wars and battles, and there be towns and cities
    chateaux and all other buildings burnt, desolated and destroyed with great effusion of virgin blood, the raping of married women and widows, and suckling children
    dashed to pieces against walls of towns, so many evils will be committed under aegis of Satan the infernal prince, that almost
    the entire world will be found undone and desolate. Before these events many rare birds will cry in the air, Now, Now, and
    and sometime later will vanish.
    After this has endured for a long time, there will be almost renewed another reign of Saturn, and the Golden Age (Age of Aquarius) God the creator hearing the
    Affliction of his people will command that Satan be cast into the abyssal depths of the bottomless pit, and be bound there: and then will commence between God and Men a
    Universal peace, and for a space of a thousand years (Satan) will remain bound- and the Ecclesiastical (spiritual) power will evolve into it’s greatest energy and then turned loose
    All these figures represent the adaptations of the Holy Scriptures with visible celestial bodies, namely Saturn, Jupiter and
    Mars and others conjoined, as can be seen more fully in some of the quatrains
    Edgar Cayce on Revelation
    The “beast rising out of the sea” is the selfish animalistic desires that arise which are capable of ruling humanity. These desires spring from the self will of the unspiritual intellect of humanity whom the world worships as a “symbol of success.” The human intellect, lacking spiritual orientation, cuts itself off from all that is divine. The “lamb” John sees are the forces of the superconscious mind in the world going into action. “Babylon”, the human desire for Earthly riches and success in the gratification of the flesh, begins to be “destroyed” as humans are shown the consequences of their “prostitution” of their higher faculties.
    Now the archetype of humanity’s continual rebellions, the self-willed intellect symbolized as the “devil”, is confined for a time in the collective unconscious mind. During this period of one thousand years (the thousand year “rule of Christ”), only the evolved souls will be permitted to incarnate the Earth (Rev. 20:4). At the end of this period, the remaining souls begin to incarnate, bringing with them their unsatisfied ambitions and desires. This, of course, brings about the former conditions of imbalance (wars and plagues). These conditions, all man-made, are now themselves eliminated and all mental forms and patterns not formed by divine will are purged (Rev. 20:14).

  5. Wow! An astrologer that loves economics. I was reading a novel called
    “Keeper of the Souls” by Blake Taylore.
    And it was a great read. You might be interested because she combines economics and magick. The novel makes a lot of references to these economic times we are going through with some rather unusual solutions.

  6. I will definitely check out “Keeper of the Souls.” Thanks for the positive feedback and for taking the time to write.
