BAD MOON RISING

The Dow Jones experienced its worst week since January. This sudden drop reiterated the value of the lunar cycle in analyzing potential market fluctuations. The current lunar cycle began with the New Moon of July 15 @ 21.24 hours in New York. The following day the Dow reached its top of 18120 points. Then it got the wobbles. But that was no surprise.

The New Moon was hard angled to dissipating Neptune. This planet does not inspire market confidence unless accompanied by supportive angles to other beneficial planets such as Jupiter. Such was not forthcoming. Neptune tends to erode confidence and inflate rumor through a lack of clear definition and direction. Information is replaced by hearsay.

The New Moon horoscope shows the value planet Venus in a testing square to contracting Saturn. Both Venus and Saturn are in a difficult placement with the trading planet of Mercury, which also opposes Pluto. As expansive Jupiter is also moving in to square hardliner Saturn, there is not a saving grace in the July 15 New Moon chart. Click here for the July New Moon horoscope.

But it’s not the New Moon that has most financial astrologers concerned in the big picture scenario. It’s the looming Saturn factor. The ringed planet has an unenviable reputation when it comes to denting investor confidence. With the Chinese economy under tighter controls and the Eurozone still struggling is Saturn ready to strike?

SATURN - THE BOA-CONSTRICTOR

Saturn is the planet of contraction – the boa constrictor of market growth. Its first port of call is a square with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, in early August. That will begin a cycle of Saturn making difficult aspects to other outers, mainly Neptune by late November 2015 and continuing the Neptune square, June through September 2016. But it’s the area of the zodiac that Saturn is moving into that is the cause of concern.

From September 18 onward, Saturn will be again moving through the mutable sign of Sagittarius. The ringed planet's record when moving through mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - has too often for comfort, coincided with market meltdown. The Dow's largest ever percentage fall occurred on October 19 1987. A whopping 22% was wiped off stock values in one day.

The freefall began in Hong Kong and spread to Europe, before hitting the US markets. By the end of October, Hong Kong was down 45%, Australia 42% and the US still 23% down. Although the Dow recovered well, it took two years to fully regain the losses. For that dramatic fall, Saturn was positioned at 17 degrees of Sagittarius.

Saturn’s return to the middle degrees of a mutable sign occurred around seven years later. The result was nowhere near as catastrophic. Regardless, Saturn still coincided with a definite slowdown and a sideways market from mid 1994 until March of 1995. But it was sombre Saturn's last two appearances in mutable signs that sends a haunting chill through investors – much like 1987. Here's why.

SEPTEMBER 11 & LEHMAN BROS COLLAPSE

In 2001 Saturn had entered Gemini. It was the first year of George W Bush's presidency. The Dow had gained 5% the previous year, but by early March was struggling. In the fortnight from March 8, it took a 14% tumble. Although it bounced back, this was a sign of things to come. In that period Saturn was in its retrograde period and had re-entered late Taurus.

By the August of 2001 Saturn was reaching the middle degrees of Gemini and had formed a challenging opposition with the power planet Pluto, that would continue until May 2002. It coincided with the September 11 terrorist attacks that closed the New York Stock Exchange for four days as stocks plummeted. The Dow reversed a 5% gain in 2000 into a 5% loss in 2001, before suffering a dramatic 15% drop over 2002.

Saturn returned to mutable in 2008. When Lehman Bros collapsed on September 15 2008, the planet of contraction was 13 degrees through Virgo and would move into square with the fellow outer gas giant, Uranus, before the year was out. Saturn’s appearance in a mutable sign would once again wreak havoc with the US economy. The shock waves of that financial tsunami travelled across the globe.

A HISTORY OF MARKET CORRECTIONS

Saturn’s dismal economic record in mutable signs is something that has plagued the USA since their first financial panic in 1819, when the austere planet was traveling through Pisces. That chaotic period of bank collapses, so early in the country’s history, led to a new nationalism under President Andrew Jackson.

Saturn was again moving through Pisces, coinciding with the financial panic of 1907. That collapse led to the creation of the Federal Reserve. Saturn was in Sagittarius for the initial Black Monday of October 1929, the prelude of the Great Depression. Such recurrences are a prime reason why students of astro-economics will be keeping a close watch on the boa constrictor of market corrections in the coming months.

After a bumper year in 2013, skyrocketing the DJIA up 23%, 2014 recorded a more modest 8½ % gain. After a rocky start in January and a high in mid-May, this year remains in the red, a pattern similar to 2008. Saturn moves back into Sagittarius by September 18, where it's initially in hard aspect to transactional Mercury and then Venus. Saturn will next semisquare unstable Uranus by October 22. But it's the late November period, and the problematic square to Neptune that really holds the key.

EVERY DAY A MASS MURDER

The July 23 7.30 pm mass shootings, in a Lafayette theatre, brought the annual total of mass murders in the USA to 204 - one for every day of the year. Always a 'male with a gun'. It came exactly a week after the Chattanooga drive by murders that claimed five servicemen, at 10.45 am on July 16 . They were killed as Mars, the planet of both weaponry and military moved across the Cancerian Sun of the July 4 1776 national horoscope, with deadly Pluto in oppositon.

A mass murder for every day of the year is a problem that won't go away until it is responsibly addressed. Last month the US national horoscope fielded its Mars return. The Mars return came coincident with a New Moon also on the US Mars. It puts a fresh focus on the whole gun culture. The planets are providing a powerful sign to do something about it. But who will heed the message? Or will it be as Bob Dylan wrote - 'the answer is blowing in the wind.'
