Gold Astro Update – July 20, 2014

In my most recent edition of the E-Alert ( , I provided subscribers with an update on Gold. The following chart is what I included in my write-up. The lines projected from the March 2014 high are of course the Gann lines. The colored bands on the chart are the heliocentric and geocentric harmonic lines. The geo and helio harmonics for these outer planets are so close mathematically that I decided to simply create a band of price to include them both.

I offered a longer explanation in the E-Alert which I will not include here. I trust you can draw your own conclusions from this chart as to the situation with Gold and where support and resistance levels are.

Astrology and “weed” Stocks ( OTC:CANN)

Medical marijuana is a hot topic these days – and getting hotter. Here in Canada where I sit, we are seeing struggling small cap junior mining companies “re-create” themselves by planning to get into the pot growing business. How many of them will eventually succeed remains unclear at this point. But there have been companies to date that have made the switch and seem to be making money either growing weed or supplying infrastructure and equipment to those who do grow it.

A case in point is a US firm that was born in 1987 as ProMap. This company started life with a plan to sell maps to the oil and gas industry. Not that long ago, ProMap changed its legal name to Advanced Cannabis Solutions ( ticker CANN on the OTC market) and started providing commercial space and equipment to licensed growers in Colorado.

The following stock chart shows the explosive ride the stock has enjoyed.

Interestingly enough, the rise in share price co-incided with Saturn passing by 0 degrees (conjunction) to the natal Sun position in the natal horoscope of Nov 12, 1987.

Interesting further is that the price rise effectively stalled out as both Saturn and Mars turned Retrograde earlier this year.

The good news is, Saturn will not make another 0 degree conjunction to natal Sun for a very long time. Mars is due to pass by natal Sun in November. In a recent edition of the E-Alert, I advised that people put CANN on their watch list. I suspect that Mars may spur some price action as it conjuncts natal Sun. This stock has had one explosive ride upwards. Another one is not out of the question…


Soybeans and the Mercury Influence

In a recent edition of my Astrology E-Alert, I penned a quick note for subscribers on the topic of Soybeans to illustrate the connection between Beans and Mercury Retrograde events.

The daily nearest chart embedded in this post has been overlaid with red boxes to denote the Mercury Retrograde events. I have further added the 18 and 55 day moving averages as well as a Jupiter harmonic line.

Note that in late January 2014 and into February, price action was below these moving averages. As Mercury turned Retrograde, price action moved up through these averages and a nice rally followed. As Mercury turned retrograde again last week, price action slipped under these moving averages and Soybeans now can be seen to be less than attractive from a chart technical point of view. We have about 12 days remaining in the Mercury retrograde event. Watch for some interesting price action to occur in alignment with the remainder of this Retrograde event.




Candy Crush and King Digital [Nasdaq:KING]

I am not a gamer, but I noticed this week that U.K. digital game company King Digital IPO’d in New York. King is the maker of popular game Candy Crush which reportedly is a huge money maker. So, why then are shares trading underneath the IPO price? There are no doubt several reasons that analysts could recite for this less than robust debut onto the market. But, I think it may be simpler that that. I maintain that human emotion is the root cause. A look at the planetary alignments on March 26, 2014 tells the tale. Uranus Jupiter and Pluto form a T-square with heavyweight Uranus at the apex. Sun and Uranus are coming into a conjunct (0 degree) aspect which generally is not good. This Uranus-Jupiter-Pluto T-Square will be with us for the next 3 months and along the way will form part of Grand Cross formations from time to time. I am not suggesting that KING will collapse and fall apart. But, if it were me in charge at KING, I think I would have asked my investment bankers to hold off on launching the IPO until after the T-Square astrology had cleared itself out of the equation…

Dow Jones e-Mini Futures and Harmonic Lines

The idea of a harmonic is a deep esoteric one and a more complete explanation is outside the scope of this brief blog post. A simple way of thinking about harmonics is aptly described by the definition penned in the 1940s by physicists Wheeler and Feynman who posited that the Universe consists of a standing wave which develops harmonically related standing waves and each of these does the same.

In my research, I recently came across a publication by mathematician Fabio Oreste in the British Library in London that explains how to calculate and generate harmonic lines in the context of price charts. The approach says that harmonic lines will conform to 2 to the nth power, where n=0,1,2,3,4,… That is, there will be 1st level harmonics, 2nd level, 4th level, 8th level etc…

The image embedded in this post is the March 2014 futures price chart for the Dow Jones e-Mini contract. I have overlaid various harmonic lines on this chart. All of these are 1st order harmonics.

Note that the Jupiter lines (heavy red lines) align well to the late 2013 lows. A Jupiter harmonic can be seen just above the recent market highs. Price action of late has been sliding on the Dow and as of last Friday ( Jan 31, 2014) we can see that price action touched a Jupiter harmonic and then bounced higher intra-day. Curiously enough, this Jupiter harmonic line is also at the 50% Fibonacci retracement line of the October 2013-Dec 2013 move higher. When I see harmonic lines interacting with Fibonacci retracement lines I tend to pay particular attention.

The current timeframe also aligns to a Venus heliocentric cycle. From the late June 2013 correction until right about here and now is one full heliocentric trip of Venus around the Sun. So, now we have a major harmonic line that is working in concert with a Fibonacci retracement and a Venus heliocentric cycle.

So…there is compelling evidence that we are at a turning point on the Dow, but there still is possibility that price could drop more between now and ~Feb 6th when the Venus cycle completes. Any further price drop will likely be held in check by the Fibonacci 0.618 retracement and the agglomeration of Saturn, Neptune, Pluto harmonics in the ~15,300 area.

Toronto Stock Exchange TSX Index with Jupiter Harmonics

The idea of a harmonic is a deep esoteric one and a more complete explanation is best found in Quantum Trading by Fabio Oreste. A simple way of thinking about harmonics is aptly described by the definition penned in the 1940s by physicists Wheeler and Feynman who posited that the Universe consists of a standing wave which develops harmonically related standing waves and each of these does the same.

In my research, I recently came across Oreste’s book in the British Library in London that explained how to calculate and generate harmonic lines in the context of price charts. In the following weekly chart of the TSX Index, you will note that I have overlaid some blue lines. These are some of ( but not all of..) the Jupiter 1st harmonic lines. Note how these lines bound the price highs and lows in 20212 and the most recent lows in late October 2013.

The question now as the TSX pushes up to its old highs is – where will it go?

The Jupiter harmonics are suggesting that between now and end of March, immediate support rests at 13781 and immediate overhead resistance is at 14141.



Astrology, Human Emotion and the BitCoin Virtual Currency

An excellent article on Nov 30, 2013 in the Economist caught my attention. The article was discussing efforts to maintain a new virtual currency called the BitCoin which started sometime in 2008. BitCoin is a peer-to-peer currency with no central bank, based on digital tokens with no intrinsic value. Rather than relying on confidence in a central authority, it depends instead on a distributed system of trust, based on a transaction ledger which is cryptographically verified and jointly maintained by the currency’s users.

Transactions can occur directly between the system’s participants at almost zero cost, without the need for a trusted third party or any other intermediary, and are irreversible once committed to a permanent and fully public record. Bitcoin’s mathematically elegant design ensures that the money supply can increase only at a fixed rate that slows over time and then stops altogether. Anonymity, while not assured, is possible with the right precautions and tools.

The mention of the trust factor got me thinking….. Trust implies some degree of human emotion. I then started wondering if any astrological patterns are evident so far in the short history BitCoin.

I am still in Malta as I pen this article and this past week I discovered something rather intriguing. There is a Russian group domiciled here (Exante Funds) who have started an investment fund complete with all the requisite approvals from Malta Finance administrators. The minimum investment is 100,000 Euros and the fund will extract a 0.50% management fee each year based on the fund value. But, this is no ordinary fund. This fund is a currency speculation fund – and the currency is the BitCoin.

In several recent editions of my subscriber-based Astrology E-Alert I examined the power of planetary declinations on human emotion and the financial markets. Based on this work, I then decided to examine the price history of BitCoin in the context of declination. What I found was very interesting. From this bit of research I can fairly conclude that declinations of Mars, Venus and Sun are affecting human emotion which in turn plays into the trust factor necessary for BitCoin to function. The declination plot embedded herein tells the rest of the story.


Looking into the near future, watch the timeframes around the March Equinox (Sun at 0 degrees declination), around late April-late May (Mars declination maxima), and around mid-June to Mid-August (Sun and Venus making declination maxima).  I expect the BitCoin story will continue to be a volatile one. I shall be watching BitCoin with great interest.


Harmonics – a Valuable Tool for following Crude Oil Futures…..

In my recent travels, I found a book at the British Library entitled Quantum Trading by Italian mathematician Fabio Oreste. Oreste claims to have spent many years travelling in the “east” where he became acquainted with various forms of esoteric  thought.

Oreste solves a problem that has been haunting me for some time. To date, I have been using the Universal Clock approach (developed using the Gann Wheel of 24 and then trademarked by author Jeanne Long) in determining planetary transit lines. With this approach, one must assign some increment of price to the Clock calculations. Taking price increments that are too wide can lead to inaccuracy in the transit lines. Oreste uses a unique harmonics approach that focuses on the 2n and 1/2n  harmonics where n=0,1,2,4,8,…..  By taking the longitudinal degree of a planet at time x, ( where time x is that of a significant high or low) one can calculate the various harmonics at work. Then at some future time, one can use the longitudinal degree of the planet to determine the harmonics at work. Joining the various points starting from time x will produce a harmonic (transit)  line. Oreste calculates the harmonics each week ( or each day for shorter studies), but to keep my sanity intact, I will use fewer data points in charts displayed in my writings. 

To illustrate, the following chart displays the continuous front month Crude Oil futures price action from mid-2009 to mid-2012. I have calculated various harmonics and sub-harmonics using the Oreste approach. Notice how these harmonics often align to key swing points on Crude Oil pricing.

Harmonics are a seriously powerful facet of financial astrology. Harmonics become extremely potent when one sees how Fibonacci retracement levels and Fibonacci extensions often align to harmonic lines. For example, as I will be showing my Astrology E-Alert subscribers in my next edition, Crude Oil pricing is currently closing in on a key Fibonacci level and several harmonic levels are also visible at the same time.

Declination of Jupiter and Mars

My recent research at the British Library has opened my eyes to the power of Jupiter and its declination path. Jupiter has a declination path that takes it from a declination low to a subsequent low in approximately 12 years. Along the way, the declination path exhibits minor vibrations. The following image illustrates Jupiter’s declination from 1904 to 1933. Notice how declination minima, maxima and zero levels generally align to Dow Jones Average peaks, bottoms and in one case an acceleration of trend. Looking at this plot and in particular the 1929 timeframe, I would hazard a guess that W.D. Gann in his day was well aware of declination and likely used it in his market prognostications. The one caveat with Jupiter is that its declination inflections do take time to evolve given the slow moving nature of the planet itself. Knowing that a Jupiter declination event is coming, one will then have to be alert for a couple months or so on either side of the exact event.  Along the way, one will also have to watch for declination events of the faster inner planets as well as other planetary aspect events in order to more closely identify the market turning point.

Jupiter declination, human emotion and the Dow Jones

My recent research at the British Library has also indicated that planet Jupiter can play a significant role in altering human emotion and generating trend changes on the Dow Jones Average. The following image of Jupiter’s declination path takes into account the time frame from 1900 to 1921. The declination cycle for Jupiter is about 12 years. The time to carve out a maximum or a minimum can take many months due to the slow moving nature of such a large planet as Jupiter. Note also the shape of the declination path. As Jupiter progresses from a minimum to a maximum, its declination is not a smooth trending function line. Rather, it is a wave-like function and if one examines the individual waves, one will see a connection to minor price swings on the Dow. I have overlaid some commentary on the declination plot. Notice how significant turning points on the Dow align very well to declination minima, maxima and 0 degree events. How this all affects human emotion, of course remains a mystery. I have reason to suspect that W.D Gann may have been aware of declination when compiling his market prognostications. Gann had fore-warned that the Autumn of 1929 would be a critical time. In fact, Jupiter was coming into 22 degrees of declination at this time and its maximum declination that it reached subsequently was only 23 degrees. In the meantime, what I recommend is to watch Jupiter’s declination path and allow a few months at maxima and minima for the markets to react. Be sure also to use Jupiter’s declination along with the declination of Mars to more closely identify timeframes for trend changes. (note – as Jupiter was making a maximum declination in the Autumn of 1929, Mars was crossing its 0 degree declination line…). In future posts I will examine various other timeframes of Dow Jones performance against a backdrop of Jupiter declination. I will also examine the effect of Jupiter declination on the price behaviour of Gold, Oil and Agricultural commodities.
