Turbulent Times February 2021 Update*

  Cryptocurrencies, Covid-21 & Geopolitical trends – Welcome to the 7th update in my Turbulent Times series! Reminder: This is not financial or health advice – it’s my unique, no fluff astrological take on the Zeitgeist. If you haven’t read any of the previous pieces, please do, as this is building on those and it probably won’t make sense without that context. #2021’s Signature Astrology: It’s Saturn square Uranus! Exact three times over the year, it is in effect the whole time and amped whenever the Sun, Moon, or an inner planet is in a Fixed Sign. Relax. Saturn in Air Aquarius is tangibly lighter than it was in Capricorn, shacked up with Uncle Pluto over 2019/2020. And Uranus rules Aquarius so has some leverage – it will be edgy but productive. Worst Case Saturn Sq Uranus Scenario: Governments (Saturn) let rip with a ‘smart citizen tracking’ solution that they outsource to corporatocracy who blow billions (our money) on focus groups perfecting a groovy “hey there!” overlay for all the surveillance, cash bans and whacko additives to the water supply. The people (Uranus in Taurus) become drastically polarized over this. Best Case Saturn Sq Uranus Scenario: An enlightened, genius blend of Aquarius high-tech futurism and Uranus in Taurus Gaia-first solutions to (1) save the planet, (2) reform the multiple areas of justice and social security that need it, (3) restore sanity in fiscal governance. Weird New Political Trend: Unlikely but beneficial bipartisan affinities between politicians who appear to be in the game for more than merely their own ends: Eg: In America, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & Ted Cruz. In Australia, Penny Wong & Andrew Hastie. Joe Biden’s Birth Chart is Wild: He’s a big 12th house guy – Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Scorpio/the 12th house. It’s a rare phenom in politics! The 12th house is usually the realm of shamans and poets. However, Hillary Clinton has a similar vibe: Venus, Sun and Mercury in Scorpio/the 12th house. Biden has secrets but his Scorp is also in a beautiful trine to Jupiter and he has Neptune in the 10th house, suggesting emotional intelligence + a degree of visionary charisma. But jeez – his Mars in Scorp squares Pluto in Leo and they’re heavied by the Saturn-Uranus square all year, beginning now. It’s a unique transit – a true once-in-a-life-timer and it suggests either an expose of shady power deals or the high-stakes of the geopolitical arena he has entered. I’m hesitant to mention the Kamala Harris astro. When I posted about her as a nominee for candidate, the anti-Kamala comments got so intense that I took it down and didn’t write about any of the other candidates lol. But strikingly, her Mars in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius are square Biden’s Scorpio stellium. Her Jupiter is opposite it. Their rapport would need to be tactical and highly calibrated. They’re both super-fixed, reflecting the times, and any animosity or difference of opinion could rigidify. Already Obvious New Personal Trend: The end of relationship ambiguity. In love, friendship and business, people are taking sides – either declaring allegiance or scramming at warp speed, probably after a definitive moment. Nobody has the bandwidth for ‘must catch up’ acquaintances or long-time semi-frenemies. Currency Wars Will Be Hip: China was already fixing to try and mess with the USD’s status as world reserve currency, multiple people in governance are fed up with central banks and their methods and even the most not-into-economics characters are waking up to how the stock market is being gamed. Cryptocurrencies, gold, micro-investment, vendor-financing – anticipate multiple breakaway movements in money. Beam and Dashcoin are already unsettling Paypal and co. Now the David versus Goliath Gamestop stunt and the subsequent trading halt have put Wall St on notice. Good! If you have not read about it yet, do. It occurred with Jupiter in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus (the cooler cousin of the longer-playing Saturn square) and is very much a coming theme. My Experiment With Gann Trading Cryptos Worked – Sort Of!  I recently wrote about W.D. Gann, who invented all these astrological stock-trading techniques back in the day and I’ve been trialling some of his methods. He clouds them in Christian Science banter but, if you know astrology, a lot of it is common sense. Eg: A high of something when there is a Mars-Jupiter conjunction will be a low when Mars opposes Jupiter. His Moon declinations technique does, however, work brilliantly with crypto. I will track it some more before I share. You could also set up a dummy trading account and compare highs and lows with the Moon Calendar. Or, generate a chart for a crypto based off it’s genesis block and then observe how various astro-phenoms affect it. It’s fun and highly addictive but fiddly to set up. If you’re an algorithm builder or good at setting up charts to compare data inputs, email me! The Gray War Is Here: P.R. skirmishes, social media routs, cyber-hacks, corporate espionage and duelling propaganda giants. Striking news headlines appear one day and then the story is dropped. Was it real? Is it no longer news? What happened? A glitch in the matrix? Who knows if you’re seeing ‘the main news’ or something the algorithm thinks you’ll respond to? Or is it just because so many journalists have been ‘let go’ and the ones left are out-numbered by lobbyists? The Gray War has already begun. It does your head in but we’d probably all prefer it to a hot war. With Caligula having ungraciously vacated the White House, the tone is remarkably more elegant, reflecting a coherent management structure as opposed to whatever happens when you inadvertently snort Cheeto dust with your sildenafil citrate. But the Gray War will still be happening. Privacy hygiene is very 2021.  Will The Revolution Be Decentralized? Everyone is talking about it but the city versus country theme is yet to play out. The concept of commuting into a central business district seems quaint post-Cv-19 …

*Mystic’s Financial Astrology Update

This financial astrology briefing is not what I think should happen, it’s what I think will happen. Nor is what I think you ‘should’ do. It is not investment advice – talk to a certified accountant or advisor who knows your unique circumstances for that. This is my opinion, based on astrological trends and theories.* I am putting the take-away points at the top but if you would like to know more or read my rationale and some cool background, keep reading after these! Eight Astrologically Based Financial Future Ideas (1) Property – If you want to sell property, do it sooner or be prepared to put it off for a long time. The advantage of buying now would be that you could paint the bathroom indigo or get ten cats. More practically, you could have a garden. But if you were buying it with the hope of capital gains in the next ten years, no. It’s a comparison of rent payments versus loan interest and the upfront cost of purchasing against the downsides of renting. In this climate, both options have advantages. To be hideously blunt, if there was a depression (a drop in GDP of 10% or more), you could more easily up and move from a rental if you needed to. Or negotiate the rent down. Your garden could be portable. But if your mortgage is reasonable/paid off, owning the place means you can turn it into a little hive of industry or fix things faster than most landlords. Whatever you’re doing, objectively crunch all the numbers and factors. There is no longer an inherent status or advantage in owning. We’re nearing the end of a Jupiter-Saturn in Earth cycle (see below) and far more innovative living solutions are the future. Eg: Ingenious forms of sharing resources. (2) Debt  – Smash credit card debt as fast and savagely as you can humanly manage. It’s difficult because, if your work has become unviable because of CV-19 or your entire industry is at threat, credit cards and loans are not funding your ‘fun’ – they’re filling in to help with necessities. Even so, they’re a drag on your future so minimize them if you can. It’s been so long since we saw real interest rates but they can go up. Central Banks don’t want them to, of course. They are spruiking negative interest rates as ‘the solution.’ But there is a growing feeling against this style of banking and it’s not a fringe movement Read this if you’re up for an intensive, highly informative take. Interest rates rising could be unavoidable: Brilliant for savers and pensioners who live off the interest from savings, not crash-hot for people with significant debt. The upcoming Saturn-Uranus square has the feel of a clash between central-banking ideals and a return to more locally managed economies. (3) Crypto-Currency – Investigate alternative currencies. Money, as many of you know, is not what it used to be.  Fiat currency (government-issued legal tender) is worth a lot less, because of the artificially suppressed interest rates. And banks are legally allowed to keep just a fraction of the money you deposit with them actually at call. The rest is used to ‘grow the money supply.’ Any book or article by Satyajit Das has brilliant info on all this. As interest rates are so crazily low, money deposited in the bank is not going to make any gains – a deliberate plan on the part of Central Banks wanting to encourage growth aka debt. If you’re a Gen X or a Pluto in Leo person, you’ll recall the thrill of going into the bank as a kid and having your passbook updated to reflect the money the bank was paying you in interest. That is gone, for now. Enter cryptocurrency. It’s fast-moving (up or down) and volatile but it is not subject to fake limits. Bitcoin, the original crypto – was first mined (launched) on January 3, 2009 – with these words embedded into it as a snark at Fractional Reserve Banking: The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.  At that time, Jupiter was at 29 Capricorn, approaching the degree of December 2020’s Jupiter Saturn conjunction. Mercury (currency, ideas, merchants) was at 1 Aquarius, the exact point of it, and approaching the North Node in Aquarius (9 degrees). Venus and Neptune were also in Aquarius, albeit later in that sign. Taking the debut of Bitcoin as an indicator for all cryptocurrency, you can see that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius is activating the original creation chart to a massive degree. If even one of the big ones is taken up by – say – a supermarket chain, things will evolve rapidly. Many merchants don’t accept cryptos because the value fluctuations make it tricky but there are multiple developments in the works – eg: e-commerce facilitator Stripe is backing Stellar Lumens.  For an intelligent status-quo take on cryptocurrencies and how/if they could integrate into the current system (or replace it) see this. (disclosure: I have some Ravencoin and Ripple).  I have a theory about astro-tracking some of these but I will wait till I’ve tested it some more before citing it lol. (4) Stocks  – If you’re educated on a company or an industry and it’s not over-valued, buy some shares in it. If you don’t know what you’re doing it, stay out of it and leave it to the flash trading algorithms. I don’t have time to read the business pages as much as I want to so I just have a small amount of money in a super high-risk equities fund. Note: Not for everyone. My 2nd house is Pisces so this feels right. I know that sounds bad and the money is not ‘safe’ at all but it backs seed ventures and weird trends. I picture the people running it as Space Dust Shamans who dabble in neuromancy and blue lotus futures. The returns are amazing but of course, the fund could go …
