Stock Market Astrological Predictions

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Andy Warhol abstract dollar sign

Stock market astrological predictions used to be more simple. Financial astrologers followed their rules, and the stock market was sane. It changed in 2008. Pluto got into Capricorn, and the Lehmann Brothers went bust. Pluto – the planet of transformation – in Capricorn – the sign of the ‘system,’ the economy and (arguably) the patriarchy was ALWAYS going to be a blast. It is a slow, continual, but inevitable evolution of the global financial system. Then catalyst Uranus moved into Aries in mid-2010 and began pressuring Pluto, via a square aspect.

Media like Extreme Money, Zero Hedge and Inside Job make it clear that nothing got seriously altered after the Global Financial Fuqery began. The taxpayers bailed out the bankers who got their bonus payments and started inflating the bubble again. The profits are privatized, the losses are socialized.  Anyone who has ever had a Pluto transit knows that when change knocks, you don’t pretend to take action or make vague noises about looking into things. Kicking the can down the road during a Pluto-Uranus transit is a ridiculous idea.

Stock Market Astrological Predictions – More Flux, Buy-Backs & Bubble Blowing

Quantitative Easing changed everything. Central banks embarked on an unprecedented experiment with the adverse effects to be worn by the people. That is workers, the middle class, small and medium business. If you were in the right clique or a big company, you made money like rarely before.

If any of us lived insanely beyond our means, forever extending our credit limit and refusing to address fundamentals, there would come a day of reckoning. In general, the Pluto in Scorpio generation think all politicians are in on a gigantic racket? And broadly, the Pluto in Leo generation seems to think this is cyclical and that everything is okay so long as they can access cheap debt and the economy is in ‘growth.’ 

But it’s the kind of growth you get on steroids, pesticides or hormones. It’s non-sustainable, toxic and it can damage the organism. The so-called unconventional fiscal policy has been in effect for years now. Nobody is precisely sure of how it will play out.

The Current Economy Is Unsustainable, And People Are Getting Woke To It

I am not an economist nor a financial commenter, but astrologically, i am not at all surprised at the threatened default and shutdown scenario. Uranus square Pluto is exact for the fourth time (of seven) this Oct-Nov and s**t is about to get real.

Without becoming utterly cynical about government, it is probably a good idea to expect less from them, even as they demand more from us.  I’ve been a Zap Zone prepper in the Horoscopes for a while now; we need to be alert, fluid, and self-reliant. It is easier if you are self-employed peeps as opposed to those who have given their service to the community/society and now have their savings/pensions at risk.

Invest In Home Safes, Debt Collection Companies And Whoever Manufactures Those Industrial Props That Hold Shonkily Constructed Buildings Up

Investment wise, gold, silver, and precious metals are making a comeback, as they always do in times of trouble. So, astrological stock market predictions? If you were to be completely cynical, you’d invest in home safes, debt collection companies and whoever manufactures those industrial props that hold shonkily constructed buildings up.

The Shutdown, America, Global Financial Fuqery, Pluto in Capricorn, the Zap Zone – Thoughts?

More financial fuqery today in the USA: 17 states had a surprise blackout of food assistance to qualifying families, & nobody saw it coming until grocery shoppers swiped their debit cards & got an error message. Thousands of food-full shopping carts abandoned, millions of people go home hungry.

They say it has nothing to do with the govt shut down; instead, it is the result of server or system failure.

(AP)

Oh, it’s a failure alright. A zap zone, mercury retro Epic failure.

Love that you brought up the difference in thinking in the Pluto generations! My fellow Pluto in Scorp peeps are SO PEEVED right now, and I keep telling them that if any generation is going to change things, it’s us! I’m tired of retired folks that haven’t left their house in a decade calling us lazy and telling us how easy we could get a job if only we were willing…

question: relating to venus square neptune, and talking money with a boss who I don’t know very well yet. Venus is in my 6th right now squaring Neptune in my 8th. The conversation has to happen this week. My intention is to keep it simple, polite, direct, cheery, above board. I’m a bit concerned that the boss could be less keen for some of those things but there’s no real reason why this should be complicated. is my strategy [some might call it overthinking] about the best I can do in this situation?

Scorpbot

” simple, polite, direct, cheery, above board”

Perfect. I would just leave the ‘cheery’ bit out, but then again my Cap Asc is talking 🙂

thanks scorp ladies. yes by cheery i think i meant not stressed or intense. Scorpbot I was maybe overcompensating for my cap moon – which feels uncomfortably rusty with pay negotiations :$

Have a friend who says, “if you are talking $ always be prepared to resign & get re-hired or resign/be fired & get your market value elsewhere”. I think it is clarifying to have that in the back of the mind as a boundary. I hope I don’t sound unkind, I am wishing you all the luck in the world! Xx.

Being forced to buy health insurance is like being forced to by car insurance I don’t like it but comes in handy if you’re in an auto accident or if you get ill.
No one should go bankrupt trying to pay for cancer treatments, or being denied treatment because no insurance will cover them. It’s far from perfect but beats what we have right now.
Government will not run the insurance.

In Oz we don’t get dental etc. but the system is relatively affordable. Obamacare is exxy, there needs to be more talk on how to lower costs of medical. I support the idea 100%, but typical of pollies they don’t appreciate that the system is not affordable for many employers. No one wins with the proposed system (as i understand it), its all trad zap zone schizz. Such a pity!

I think it is important not to conflate too many issues here, Mystic. The question of actually doing something to effectively regulate the global financial system and the practices of the big banks – which was opposed by those who hate regulation, and who believe in free markets, such as the Tea Party – can’t really be conflated with the circumstances of this government shutdown. Although the latter zealots might place it all under the rubric of freedom, freedom from taxation, and free enterprise, we are talking two different things here. Fact one: the political strategy and misinformation campaign that… Read more »

It didn’t start in 2008, although there was an astrological marker that year that accelerated everything. The demise of the American economy (as we have come to know it during our lifetimes) started in the 60’s and then got accelerated through the Reagan years in the 80’s all that ‘trickle down’ theory and corporatization and the long term result of that crashed down in ’08.
