Venus Direct: Is the Rally Over?

I don’t know how often Monica’s Admirer checks in at Astrology Mundo, but I wasn’t surprised to see today’s 289-point drop in the stock market.

Why? Well, Venus turned direct on Apr. 17 and during its retrograde, stocks staged a rally. So it’s a good possibility now that Venus is moving forward from the perspective of earthlings that the rally will run out of steam.

I’m not the only one subscribing to this school of thought. Check out Ray Merriman’s post for this week.

Another reason why stocks may be resuming their descent is that the Sun has moved into Taurus, which is the sign of the New York Stock Exchange incorporation chart. That in and of itself is not a bearish indicator. It’s just that the Sun is moving toward a square with Neptune and Jupiter in Aquarius in the sky.

As Merriman points out, the combination of Neptune and Jupiter can be quite inflationary, but I think the challenging aspect from the Sun will make this a negative influence on stocks. Stay tuned.

As I’ve often pointed out, I’m not a registered investment adviser and this blog is for entertainment purposes only. I also bought my house at the top of the market in August 2005, so my financial acumen is clearly limited.

  1. Can only have one ennemy to beat: liquid investments (you seem to be good at that) or real estate (or art). Cannot winn on all fronts. Cirio!

  2. Had to think of ~Robber Barrons~ remembering a book I received in the 70`s from a friend. (American, condemned to live in Switzerland, as he could not return to the US because of some IRS problems – but a smart guy, founder of CA – Computer Associates. Lost contact with him when it turned out that he was even more friend of my ex than of me).

    But that book already then told me much about America. And now , as I remember it, I had to think that ~Robber Barrons II~ is sort of being on the agenda.

    If I remember well, almost none of the Robber Barrons in the 20`s went broke. And today, the only one who went under is Lehman. All others appear to be even striving, courtesy T. Geithner. Probably he`s smarter than Paulson, or assisted by ~destiny~

    Ariana Huffington had a point when she said ~take the stearing wheal out of Geithner`s hands~ But President O. is not so much listening to her anymore (AFTER winning the elections…).

    No matter what, America may go socialist (a little bit at least), but it`s your nations destiny to always find some ~Robber Barrons~ showing you the way.

    PS. Brazil also has its Robber Barrons, of course. They presently ~fill their pockets~ being involved in constructing ~more solid homes~ than the residents of shanty-towns here ever could have dreamed of. And they are tens of thousand of millions. No wonder the price of cement here has almost doubled in recent times…

    PPS. If anyone has the birth data of Geithner, I would appreciate a response. The guy so far shows more stamina than many would have thought. Even manages to ~talk the market up~, something Paulson could`nt.

  3. Cynthia — Check out Nancy’s Blog on the shared illusions of Geithner and President Obama. I’m at my day job and can’t look up the link right now, but it’s pretty interesting that they’re both getting Neptune big time. — Monica

  4. Cynthia, thanks a lot for Geithner’s data. Will look it up shortly. In the European press this morning, two subjects: Are American Banks now cooking their books? and Fiat: Not only are those Italians (half-broke themselves) after American taxpayers’ money with Chrysler, but now also after German government funds via the Opel subsidiary of GM.

    Here in Brazil, the Chinese announced that they will build a car factory. Sort of a nice welcome to Lula when he shortly will be in Beijng. But it confirms the idea that the Chinese are stepping in where the U.S. is receding.

    Also: North Korea says it’s taking up its nuclear activities again. Can only be with Chinese consent.

    Living in “interesting times”. Cirio to all!

  5. Having so to say a day off, fond of history and “hunting for what’s connected”, I came accross some interesting stuff: Had Jimmy Carter applied the same intuitions he had as a peanut farmer to politics, he might have saved the lives of numerous US soldiers (the elite version), a dozen or so of helicopters and a Nation’s reputation.

    Courtesy JWR (Jewish World Report) I saw that on April 24 1961 JFK “accepted sole responsibility following the Bay of Pigs disaster”.

    Jimmy C. launched on the same day, in 1980 (19 years later, Lunar Node cycle), the unsuccessful attempt to free the Iranian hostages.

    On April 24, 2008, 28 years later (Saturn), Bush accusses the North Koreans of assisiting Syria’s secret nuclear program.

    Yesterday, April 24 as well, Pionyang announces that they will resume their “nuclear interests”. That’s a lot to deal with for one day of the calendar!

    PS. Guess that the way things are going in the steep mountains up there between Afghanistan and Pakistan, we will shortly be back with some ideas about the “powder-keg” ready to explode down there.

    And Hillary will be travelling like mad, leaving Henry Kissinger way behind…
