(22 March 2023) Buyers hit the promote button right this moment after
Fed Chair Jerome Powell delivered hawkish feedback in his FOMC press
convention after elevating rates of interest one other 25 foundation factors.
Regardless of lingering uncertainty from current financial institution failures, Powell remained
dedicated to combating inflation and dominated out any charge cuts in 2023.
Powell’s bucket of chilly water got here a shock to some as markets had
been pricing in not less than two charge cuts within the second half of 2023 within the
wake of the collapse of the Silicon Valley Financial institution.
The decline coincided with a actual 45-degree alignment of Jupiter and
Saturn. Though the 45-degree alignment isn’t a standard Vedic
facet, Jupiter and Saturn had been intently conjunct within the D-8 Ashthamsa
chart, which corresponds to the eighth harmonic chart. The mixing of the
energies of Jupiter and Saturn tends to be bearish because the slower velocity
of Saturn normally will get the ultimate phrase in towards Jupiter’s choice
for optimism. The opposite potential bearish affect right here is the
approaching alignment of Mars (4 Gemini), Ketu (10 Libra) and Saturn (7
Aquarius). Every planet is separated by about 120 levels on this Grand
Trine sample and thus creates a resonance the place the energies of the
planets are amplified. Since all three planets are pure malefics, it
isn’t sudden that shares fell with the strategy of this sample.
We will additionally see how right this moment’s decline may need manifested within the
13-day progressed cycle chart. This 13-day cycle is one other method to
describing the minor progressed chart the place the association of the
planets one lunar month after delivery is symbolically equal to at least one
full yr of life. The ensuing 1:13 time compression can present
insights into future tendencies which might be generally not obvious within the
customary transit chart.
Trying on the NASDAQ horoscope (Feb 8 1971, 10.00 a.m.), we will see
that this week’s planets function some tough alignments. Progressed
Mars (22 Scorpio) aligns with each progressed Saturn (22 Gemini) and
natal Saturn (22 Aries). Whereas neither of those alignments are
full-strength features, their exact geometry is nonetheless essential.
Since Mars and Saturn are each malefic planets, their alignments are
extra prone to coincide with unfavourable sentiment and inventory market
However in contrast with transits, progressed planets transfer far more
slowly. For instance, transiting Mars strikes about 35-40 minutes of arc
per day. Minor progressed Mars strikes simply 3 arc minutes per day, whereas
this progressed retrograde Saturn strikes simply 3 arc seconds per
day. Which means the Mars-Saturn-Saturn alignment will likely be inside
vary for for much longer than a easy Mars transit. This means that
right this moment’s unfavourable sentiment may final for some time longer.
Whereas this can be a tough chart, we ought to be cautious to not place
an excessive amount of emphasis on it as it is just one cycle out of many potential
cycles. It’s potential it might be offset by transits, or the 27-day
progressed cycle for the NASDAQ chart, or certainly the cumulative
influences from the opposite related natal charts such because the NYSE chart
(as famous in final week’s replace) or the S&P 500 chart, amongst others.
Different potential caveats right here is the upcoming Solar-Jupiter alignment in
this minor progressed chart. This can be a extra bullish affect that’s
prone to carry some upside over the subsequent a number of weeks when the
alignment tightens. Utilizing its actual alignment as its theoretical
most affect, the bullish affect from this 13-day cycle chart is
prone to peak someday within the second half of April. Considerably, by
that point Mars can have moved two full levels previous each progressed
Saturn and natal Saturn. This means that the unfavourable power on this
explicit chart is extra prone to have waned whereas the constructive power
will likely be on the rise.
