The pause in the stock market has been brief.  It is close to a technical breakout at publication and we still think it is vulnerable at least into July 9th.   We are not expecting much of a pullback now.  We have noted in previous issues that the Jupiter/Uranus connection in late Aries will hold AI and tech up into early September.

The Jupiter/Rahu conjunction continues to push the tech bubble and AI craze to the moon.  We do not see it ending until early September with Jupiter approaching Uranus toward the end of Aries.  The media is calling for a new bull market but the 20% figure has always been rather arbitrary. 

If the S & P cash takes out 4505 by July 3rd, then pullbacks into July 9th will be minor and the trade may start pushing the stock market back up.  Usually the the Mars/Saturn opposition into the week of July 17th is not helpful and Mars/Saturn oppositions tend to create labor strikes and UPS is close to announcing a strike at publication that would cripple the supply chain. 

The stock market usually does not like the Mars/Saturn opposition which is between Leo and Aquarius into July 20th as Mercury goes retrograde into July 22nd in Leo.  Not sure if the market will be able to take off again until after the next rate hike. The next FOMC meeting is July 25-26th and at the moment there is an 85% chance of another rate hike coming and we wonder if that will put the breaks on this recovery rally in progress at publication.

 With Jupiter’s proximity to Uranus peaking with the Jupiter station into Sept 4th, there will be some kind of high on the year for stocks into that window.  We are starting to think that NQ 100 could get up to 16500-17000 with the AI craze and pull Tesla up to 304.  Doubt that Tesla will take out 230 now. 

With Jupiter going retrograde from Sept. 3rd into the end of the year, we will get recessionary action happening.  We do not expect the FOMC to ease rates until next year.    We have been looking for a difficult time for US stocks in September/October/November.  This is also coinciding with the 12-year cycle of Jupiter in Aries when in Sept. 2011, stocks made a high and then fall into May of 2012.  

The problem for the fall is Jupiter will be opposing the debilitated Sun and Mars in Libra with Mercury in the fall of 2023 and that is similar to the oppositions we had between the bearish signs of Aries and Libra, two air signs, which caused more rapid stock market declines. In Oct. 1987, we had something very similar and hence there is more crash energy in the fall of this year.  

The context for a major financial crisis continues to be there this fall as the house of cards of world debt, endless war expenditures are not going to come to a pretty and neat end.  Still, the powers that be manage to do what they can to stay in power for the sake of the rest of us.


 This year has always looked better than 2024. We have been looking at the US Pluto return into May/June 2024 for a while and it tends to cause big shifts in a super-power.  Rome and the United Kingdom were not the same after the Pluto returns. Juliana Swanson did a long presentation in Dallas last week and she noted that changes in all these superpowers occurred to waging expensive wars, corruption, over-spending, and loss of moral and ethical standards.   Any surprises here?  The April 8th Solar Eclipse in 2024 makes X across the US and is very powerful because it occurs during the day. It appears to be another huge omen.   (



At publication, banks are still drawing heavily on the FED’s emergency funding window.  On the horizon for a new crisis is the banking situation which we warned is in trouble in July.  The banks passed the stress test by the Federal Reserve but the commercial real estate crisis is there to rear its ugly head in the background and that may be a cause of a problem this fall.  We had mentioned that the banking crisis would not go away.  We are at the  Jupiter/Rahu conjunction, which is a signature for bankruptcy, and it happens in the True Node system on June 2nd, and a bit earlier in the Mean Node system.


Gold has failed to launch and will more likely do so in the fall and winter with a more extended financial crisis unless the banking crisis comes earlier.    Larger cycle highs for gold are due in Sept. as it is gold like the Sun in Leo and Jupiter will be trining it and we have another cycle high in early November with Venus trining Pluto into Nov. 6th as I find Venus/Pluto aspects are often connected to gold highs.  Mars going into Leo at publication should help a bit but we are concerned that if gold breaks 1890, it would fall to 1820 and seasonally then the planets go through Cancer, 12 houses from Leo, gold is in trouble.  

  We have seen banks trash gold by selling futures for years and are not sure they will stop and a break of 1890 on gold would lead to 1800. It is not out of the question as the banks continue to manipulate. We do think gold will have its day from the fall of 2023 into the spring of 2024.  We have a gold cycle higher into 2024 for now. Gold could accelerate in a crisis to 2245 and then 2450 into the year 2024.  Stay on top of our daily forecasts with newsletters.

CRYPTOS: Bitcoin finally gave a technical breakout a few weeks ago and projects at least 35000 short-term and could get back to 54000.    The fall financial crisis will help.  Jupiter is trining the natal Jupiter in the natal chart (10/31/2008 11:10 am, Van Nuys, CA) at 22 Sagittarius) into Jupiter station in early September at 21 degrees.  

We think long timer they will be vulnerable still as the SEC tries to regulate cryptos out of existence as indicated by the SEC filings against COIN and other players. Still, Bitcoin is in a Jupiter/Rahu period from August 2023 into 2026 using the correct dasha of (Adhana Vimshottari Dasha) and it is likely to weather the storm for a bit. 


Remember to work with your broker. Trading and investing have to be done both technically and astrology can help but should not be the only factor in making a decision.  You have to buy low and sell high.
