While astrology reveals sky influences over consumer sentiment and market trends, people are always the variable. Free will and every choice we make allows us to transform our destiny in different ways. This is why astrological forecasting does not guarantee 100% accurate predictions.
May is officially “eclipse season”. The last day of April brings a Solar Eclipse in Taurus, the “money” zodiac sign guided by Venus. This amplified New Moon conjunct Uranus – the planet of sudden surprises – suggests we might see unexpected events for up to six months. Eclipses act like a door opening wide to help boost us forward and shift our lives in big ways.
Venus and Jupiter also conjoined on April 30 adds stimulated visions of expansion re: relationships and/or finances to this eclipse. Since these two planets are in Pisces, politicians, investors and people in general may be wishful however muddled, confused or deceived about current economic conditions, wondering if the economy will expand or contract.
Venus leaves peace-loving Pisces and moves into passionate Aries on May 2. This characterizes zestful stock market activity. It’s conceivable we may see some market rallies fueled by Aries enthusiasm. My guess is long-term investors will lean more toward stocks and sectors such as military defense, cybersecurity, munitions, machinery equipment and metals, as Aries is ruled by Mars, and Mars oversees these areas. I’m not suggesting all these are winners, although it’s nice to think that trend is your friend.
Since Aries is known for boldness and courage, space-oriented stocks like SpaceX, Aerospace Rocketdyne, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, or Maxar Technologies might see some momentum and a rise in valuations as well.
On a positive note, we should finally feel more spring-like drive and a cardinal shift during the month of May as planets Venus, Mars and Jupiter all ingress (enter) fiery Aries. The vibrations of Pisces dreaminess, hopefulness, confusion and fantasy should now begin to dissipate as we say “Goodbye Pisces” (as in the Tori Amos song).
That said, Neptune will remain in Pisces until March 30, 2025, so secret dreams, wishful thinking, increased oil prices and water issues (e.g., a lack thereof or memorable floods, rains, hurricanes) can still be part of the picture for a while.
Jupiter enters Aries on May 10. After the Sun, Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system representing expansion and growth. While moving through the zodiac, planets infuse with a sign’s characteristic. Zodiac sign Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of action, courage, boldness and war.
We’ll likely feel more audacious and adventurous while Jupiter transits Aries. It’s a fantastic time for initiating big visions, stimulating projects, and enjoying vigorous physical exercise. Jupiter remains in Aries until May 16, 2023 except for a retrograde back into Pisces October 27/28 to December 20 later this year.
In addition to this Aries “stellium” of three planets, the brief Moon transit in Aries begins less than two hours before Mars enters Aries on May 24. We’re sure to feel strong assertion and maybe even aggression with this combined Aries ingress and planetary combo of emotions and actions (Moon and Mars respectively).
Let’s not forget asteroid Chiron, which represents healing our wounds. Chiron is in Aries until June 19, 2026. Chiron’s orbit travels between Saturn and Uranus, acting as a bridge between our past limitations and future progress. Since Aries inspires bravery and independence, Chiron is perhaps influential in leading us to new paths of daring technology like artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and electric cars (EVs).
We’ll sense an additional strong driving force to get things done once planet Mars transits its celestial home. Aries can be red-hot feisty and fiercely independent. Sadly, the war in Ukraine might escalate further under these three sky influences. Jupiter, Mars and Venus will be “speaking” Aries. This sign denotes dynamic energy that’s driven to succeed.
Since Aries is a “Fire” sign, once Venus, Jupiter and Mars are in Aries we may also see a hotter than usual Spring with conditions that increase threats of fires burning in the western US. Additional geomagnetic activity and solar flares are another possibility. Long term investors may want to look at solar energy companies as a viable source for potential income.
Passions around the world will be rising to say the least! It’s sure to be a super self-motivated month.
I’d be remiss not to add some historical references. Famous institutional investors like Peter Lynch, Ray Dalio and Warren Buffet all mention how history repeats itself. In fact, history is often made based on geocosmic cycles. It’s relevant to mention that February 1940 was the last time Venus, Mars and Jupiter were all together in Aries along with Uranus in zodiac sign Taurus.
Mars and Jupiter conjoined on January 6, 1940. For more context, back then planet Saturn was also firmly entrenched in Aries. The Moon transited Aries during the same day of the Venus in Aries ingress on February 12, 1940. All that martian fighting spirit preceded the German invasion into Norway and occupation of Denmark on April 9, 1940, marking World War II in Europe.
We can also add this year’s April 30 Solar Eclipse and its Saros cycle series #119 cycle to the mix. The previous solar eclipse of series #119 was on April 19, 2004 and occurred during the Battle of Fallujah. We had another Saros cycle #119 solar eclipse on April 9, 1986, just before the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident in Ukraine.
May 2022 is not a month to take things lightly or for granted. I implore everyone to take a breath and carefully think first rather than act or speak on Aries impulse.
Two planets will appear retrograde during May. Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn on April 29. There’s often a big shift in the stock markets when a planet changes direction, and we certainly saw the US stock market retreat that day in a huge way. Next up Mercury stations retrograde in Gemini on May 10. At this time power players (Pluto’s realm) may be thwarted and everyone could be reconsidering strategies, where and/or how to diversify portfolios. Traditionally with Mercury retrograde it’s better to review plans rather than initiate new ventures.
Mercury governs our communications and commercial transactions such as investing or day trading. We may see more stock selloffs during this phase and more lengthy discussions over fiscal policies. Jerome Powell and the Federal Reserve meet on May 3 – 4 during Mercury’s “pre-retrograde storm” phase. On May 22 Mercury moves back into Taurus and doesn’t turn direct until June 3rd giving us ample time to reassess and refine our goals and plans.
On these Fed meeting dates we’ll likely be anticipating shock waves due to a Sun-Uranus conjunction on May 5. This is the kind of geocosmic pairing that creates surprise announcements from leaders, and unexpected whiplash from market lows or highs. Since Uranus rules technology, the NASDAQ is the most probable index to be affected. An example of how this might play out: further surprising news about Elon Musk and Tesla, or his purchase of Twitter.
Astrological point to remember for financials or any personal transit: the Sun and Mars act like triggers to thrust events upon us, particularly when in conjoining another planet.
With Mercury roaming both Gemini and Taurus our attention will be drawn to communications, commerce and finance. Transportation also falls under Gemini and Mercury. At times it may seem like we’re going over the same old ground. From a geocosmic perspective that’s exactly what’s happening. I like to get any necessary car repairs done before or after a Mercury retrograde, and not during these three or so weeks, whenever possible.
Coinciding with this Fed meeting are the Venus Aries ingress and a Mars-Uranus sextile contact. This suggests an opportunity for unanticipated shocks in the financial world. At a mundane level it can produce ground-shaking earthquakes. Just in case, prepare yourself to be rattled. Uranus is the electrifying awakener and Mars in Aries means quick or impulsive actions.
Gemini is an “Air” sign which in Medical Astrology oversees the lungs. With Mercury touring retrograde through Gemini there’s a greater chance for airborne illnesses like Covid-19 to once again surge to the forefront of our headline news media. One key “RE” word for retrograde seasons is: “repeat”.
To understand how to better manage retrogrades you may want to read my prior blog post about this:
A Lunar Eclipse occurs on May 15 – 16 with the amplified Full Moon at 25° Scorpio. Both the Sun in Taurus and Scorpio Full Moon will be challenged by a square to Saturn in Aquarius. Astrologers call this configuration a “T-Square”. These planets are in “Fixed” signs that prefer the status quo with things remaining the same.
With the Sun representing our ego and vitality in money sign Taurus, we may feel stressed or pressured by strict Saturnian rules where finances, relationships and/or values are concerned. This dramatic Scorpio lunation suggests that if you muster inner strength and release yourself from toxic emotional ties (whether to people or things) you’ll find a bright light and best direction forward. This can be a very cathartic lunar eclipse to help you leap ahead.
Mid-month on May 17 before Mars enters Aries it conjoins Neptune exactly at 24° Pisces. This indicates heightened conundrums over energy, particularly oil and gas commodities which are governed by Neptune. Neptune rules the seas, water, and oceans so this is when chances of floods or raging rains are optimal. Days prior to their precise meeting can stir up climate catastrophes.
As Saturn saunters further through Aquarius, by May 17 it’ll reach within 30 degrees of Neptune in Pisces. Saturn oversees our structures and limitations, while again Neptune governs oil, gas and water. Issues between what these two planets represent in mundane astrology are sure to be spotlighted in the coming days and months.
The above general overview proposes many issues concerning finances, stock markets, investments and governments can heat up exponentially. Aries and its Mars ruler also signify guns, weaponry and armies. Life will no doubt be more exciting and intense when the Venus, Jupiter and Mars stellium exit Pisces for Aries.
From the planetary perspectives, we should recognize a boundless Pisces bubble of hopes and dreams may ultimately burst by month’s end.
Remember it’s people – whether in a collective group or an individual person – who are always the variable. Our perceptions and choices of action beget outcomes for better or worse. We’ll likely continue to see courageous warriors in the Ukraine fighting for their independence, but every life lost is an excessive cost.
On that note, this pacifist Pisces continues to say aloud, “I pray for peace so war will cease”. I hope you’ll join me in repeating this mantra.

Author highlighted April 2022 Ephemeris used with permission by Astro.com
First thing on Friday, April 1 there’s a New Moon in Aries in the Eastern US. Aries is a momentous sign for fresh starts. This New Moon stimuli lasts two weeks until the Full Moon. Both Chiron and Mercury are nearby this monthly conjoining of Sun and Moon. Mercury suggests busy communications, buy/sell commercial transactions and active stock trading. Adding Chiron, we can be motivated to heal wounds as well as past financial pain from ongoing market volatility. Zodiac sign Aries is guided by Mars, the hot red planet of war and action. Therefore, Ukraine may find a new turning point.
At the same time this New Moon occurs, asteroid Juno has just met Saturn at 22° Aquarius. Juno holds sway over important partnership matters while Saturn can feel restrictive, dutiful or stern. Since Aquarius seeks independence and can sometimes be rebellious, relationships may experience difficulties if one person is not allowed breathing room. The energies of these two heavenly bodies lasts briefly. All considered it’s a dynamic way to start the month.
Additional tension will be strongly felt as Mars then follows with a conjunction to Saturn again at 22° Aquarius during the first week of April. I’ll call it a woeful trifecta. My best guess is this triple conjunction will only increase volatility and limit upward momentum. Mars wants rapid forward motion however Saturn demands steady patience. This pairing can feel like frustration on steroids, especially on Monday, April 4. Pressures should soften a bit once Venus enters Pisces on Tuesday, April 5.
Here are two suggestions to make the most constructive use of these trying sky vibes. #1: Aim high by forming new structures. #2: Focus current efforts on strategic plans to build a bridge for future success. Mars, Saturn and Juno making this rare triple contact in Aquarius denotes innovation, genius and mindful progress. It’s a good time to review and reinforce stocks in technology like EVs, AI, and robotics. We may even hear surprising news about joint business ventures in these sectors.
Also noteworthy on April 4-5, the Mars-Saturn meeting will make an angular 90° connection of tension to the Lunar Nodal Axis. The Lunar Nodes are two opposing invisible points that represent our collective consciousness. This brief Mars-Saturn square to the Nodes definitely highlights even more strain and pressure being felt throughout humanity. In fact, all of April until June 18, the North Node remains (astrologers say “stations”) at 22° Taurus. Stationing degrees most often signal there’s some sort of lesson to be learned.
It's noteworthy to reveal what legendary astrology, healer, and clairvoyant “Charubel” conveyed about 22° Taurus in his book, “The Degrees of the Zodiac Symbolized”:
“A king sits upon a throne; behind him stands a figure veiled in black.” Additional interpretation states, “It signifies one who will suffer misfortune in the height of his career and whose fall will be dangerous in proportion to the height he has attained. The native will be too apt to depend on his own powers and will essay feats which will be beyond his natural powers. Ambition will lead him into dangerous positions, and at a weak moment he will fall. Let this be taken as equally affecting his physical, moral, and social welfare. It is a degree of COLLAPSE.”
I’ve been wondering how this North Node transit will manifest itself in the world for many months. Will a world leader fall, and who might that be? Astrology offers great clues and insights to trends, however cannot dictate fortunes or results beyond human free will. Throughout April, Saturn inches slowly from 22°-24° Aquarius. The 2° orb square aspect between Saturn and the Nodal Axis will linger into May. Burdened feelings of restriction, depression, and sadness, plus a general serious tone are all possible.
The collapse Charubel mentions might also relate to stock markets. There are further astrology configurations later this year indicative of a bear market. Without a doubt this is the kind of month and year that will test our endurance. I’ll write more about these transits and trends in the months ahead. Ongoing themes about money, personal values, our talents and skills are being highlighted throughout 2022 while Uranus and the North Node travel zodiac sign Taurus.
One hopeful astrological highlight in April is the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces, exact on April 12 at 10:42 a.m. Eastern Time. This rare alignment reaffirms the biggest dreams we can ever imagine, whether or not they come true. Financial and mundane interpretations of this specific combination include increased prices in crude oil, issues with water and/or amplified rain-related storms. Both Jupiter and Neptune are gaseous planets. “Irrational exuberance” is an appropriate description. During this phase it’s prudent to remember wishful thinking can be deceptive.
With Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces, it can be an expansive renewal for natural gas or wise beginning for hydrogen fuel cells to become part of our energy supply. Crude oil prices already appear to be overheated and rising. This Jupiter-Neptune pairing also suggests we’re now at or near peak oil. It likely won’t be until February 2026 when Saturn conjoins Neptune that we see high gas prices finally dissipate. By then there’s a greater likelihood of reduced oil consumption along with more electric car choices for consumers. The EVs are coming! The EVs are coming!
If at all possible, file and complete your taxes by April 7 or April 8 when Mercury in Aries forms an auspicious 60° sextile alignment to Saturn and Mars in Aquarius. You can thank me later for this advice. The Full Moon in Libra on Saturday, April 16 once again highlights partnerships matters from earlier in the month. “La Luna” crests on the holiday weekend right around “Tax Day”. Planet Pluto will form a 90° square to both Sun and Moon. This can signify personal challenges and pressures with power players and government.
In 2022 the US tax filing deadline falls on April 18. Along with an exact Sun square to Pluto that day, Mercury conjuncts Uranus, and Venus is sextile Uranus. These Uranian energies can point to surprises and/or upsets with communications, paperwork and money. I find it kismet rather than an odd coincidence how these planetary combos all fall on Tax Day. The IRS is now asking about virtual currency holdings on the first page of Form 1040. Cryptocurrency is ruled by Uranus, while money and currencies fall under the realm of planet Venus. You’ll want to answer this question correctly.
On April 19 the Sun enters money sign Taurus. This brings further emphasis on financial matters. Then on April 22 to April 23, Mercury conjoins Uranus at 22° Taurus. Prepare for sudden shocking news whether in the markets and/or about crypto. Headlines about tech stocks or social media may surface. Brilliant inventions can favorably appear on the horizon. In addition to communications and neighborhoods, Mercury also rules local travel and transportation. We may learn of further supply chain disruptions. Let’s hope instead that innovation will help guide our way through those continued postponements.
The month ends with more astrological drama. On Friday, April 29, Pluto turns retrograde, suggesting a time when those in power will begin thorough reviews of government policies. It’s likely Congress will be actively strategizing behind the scenes until Pluto turns direct on October 8. On Saturday, April 30, we have a Solar Eclipse in Taurus. We might expect some surprises since the Moon will conjoin Uranus shortly thereafter. The two financial planets Venus (money) and Jupiter (wealth) will also conjoin at this Solar Eclipse to open a portal. Yet again, it’s money as the #1 theme.
The next Solar Eclipse in Taurus is sure to shine a light on student loan forbearance which as of this writing officially ends Monday, May 2. For many years I’ve heard economists say student loan debt will herald the next big stock market crash. Unfortunately, the war in Ukraine, rising inflation, continued supply chain delays, a lingering pandemic, and trillions of dollars in government and personal debt are simply not conducive to a burgeoning bull market.
It’s definitely more fun to be a bull than a bear, especially as we journey through Taurus season. After all, zodiac sign Taurus is symbolized by a bull. Day and swing traders may wonder why a full-on bull market isn’t already raging under the collective influence of the North Node and Uranus in Taurus. Perhaps mad bulls will decide to make a run for it since “the sky’s the limit” with Jupiter conjunct Neptune. All investors should hold onto their hats (and money) this year. Try your best not to hurl while riding this 2022 rollercoaster.
Of course, astrology offers more daily and other short-lived transits worth noting, but I’ve reached my finish line for this post.

March 2022 Highlighted Ephemeris used with permission by Astro.com
I use a trusted ephemeris to forecast general investor and consumer sentiment.
Market timing is never easy, but the universe gives us clues to movement and momentum via sky translations.
I’ll highlight the primary cyclical astrological-based stock market trend analysis of March below using planetary alignments and their significance in how they might influence US financial markets. In astrological analysis, the Moon is considered a planet. All transits are based on Eastern Time.
March 1 – 2: Mercury contacts Saturn in the zone of society, groups and innovation.
This brief encounter suggests a serious tone to business and geopolitical communications. Mercury influences talk, mental thoughts and on a mundane level, daily transportation. Saturn brings a sense of restraint and sometimes depression. This combination foretells a possible reversal of earnings. Commercial transactions and supply chain issues may be restricted while economic and global news remains somber.
March 2: New Moon in Pisces spotlights new beginnings for fluid investments in water, oil, wine and spirits, plus hospitals, pharmaceuticals, hotels and cruises for most of the month if not longer.
March 1 – 6: Pluto, Venus, and Mars join together in the sector of authority and ambition.
This suggests governments are fully engaged as powerful international leaders (Pluto) discuss actions of war and military conflict (Mars) along with peace, finances, and partnership allies (Venus). Extreme market volatility for this duration is likely. Issues of control may besiege administrations and even corporate entities which may filter down to individuals.
Solid future gains and opportunities for investors managing their money appear to be transforming. Due to this week’s overall trend, preferred equities to invest in may be energy and defense stocks. Either of these sectors may offer a hedge against inflation and the current war between Russia and Ukraine that’s got everyone on high alert.
March 3 – 6: Sun conjoins Jupiter in the area of hidden secrets, deception, dreams and fantasy.
This added layer indicates commanders-in-chief and our own inner ego drives for wealth expansion may be optimistic yet lack full clarity or realistic expectations. Inflationary issues may be a focus while day traders feel overly zealous to reap quick gains. My advice is to strategize through a magnified lens as you seek further buying opportunities.
Not to sound bearish, but for long range investors it’s safer to remove any rose-colored glasses you’re wearing and avoid being overly optimistic. We can feel extremely positive and idealistic under this bountiful yet short-lived ephemeral influence. Cautionary measures with targeted diversification are advised.
As with the monthly New Moon phase, this congruence of Sun and Jupiter initiates a new cycle of revitalized interest for investing in the following areas for possible profits until mid-April 2023: all liquids like water, oil, wine and spirits, plus hospitals, pharmaceuticals, cruise ships and hotel resorts.
However, these plays may be short lived since the Sun enters Aries for the Spring Equinox on March 20. Aries is ruled by warrior planet Mars so again this hints that defense stocks might be wiser for the time being and immediate future. Machinery, metals, mining, minerals, and sports-related stocks are additional equities worth considering.
March 6 – 14: Venus conjunct Mars together enter the 11th house sector of societal group associations and innovation.
On the positive side: we may now see greater activity between partners with more worldwide humanitarian efforts. Since every planet has a positive and negative side, we might also encounter problems with computer hacking, especially in banking and finance. Remember, Venus equates to money, Mars means war, and they’re now in a tech savvy position.
For investment income, technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics may gain some momentum. Social network companies like Meta (Facebook), Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok, and Pinterest are businesses that may receive more traction either up or down. Expect continued volatility.
This week-long Venus-Mars sequence reinforces two prior cycles. First was a Mars-Saturn conjunction which began at the end of March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic exploded. After that we began a 20-year Jupiter-Saturn cycle about refreshing structural expansion that started on December 21, 2020.
Mars-Saturn, Jupiter-Saturn, and Mars-Venus are all repeatedly meeting at 0° Aquarius suggests the Age of Aquarius (yes, like the song) is noticeably dawning. Unfortunately, with this minuscule beginning degree, enlightenment is at its infancy and equal to a newborn baby who enters the world kicking and screaming.
Although humanitarian and pioneering, Aquarius has a rebellious side. In modern astrology this zodiac sign is guided by planet Uranus which can be erratic and drastically shift markets. For long range investing, research stocks with technical applications that might advance society for the next two decades. Ultimately, it’s a long-term growth trend that won’t pay dividends now.
p.s. The Venus-Mars pairing doesn’t separate beyond 3° until March 22 so we’ll be feeling these lingering energies a while.
March 11 – 14: Sun conjoins Neptune in the area of hidden secrets, deception, dreams and fantasy.
A lack of clear direction is heightened days before the Federal Reserve meets. Everyone already expects a rate hike due to inflation, yet no one knows just how high the Fed intends to raise rates. As I look ahead to April astrology there are trends that inflationary concerns will only increase. I’ll write more on that later for next month.
The full picture remains concealed until Jerome Powell speaks. Try not to imagine the worst as we all wait with baited breath. There’s much information we’re not being told. Once the Fed Chairman finally tells us his intentions, we should attempt to read between the lies lines. Citizens and markets have already been upset by Russian armies invading Ukraine, and the US now tops $27 trillion in debt. Perhaps they’ll announce a minimal rate increase. Or not.
March 16 – 18: Full Moon in the area of details and analysis opposes Mercury, Jupiter, Neptune and Sun in the region of dreams and make-believe.
This is a perfect time for the Fed to finalize financial points and provide clear guidance. Investors should scrutinize and strive to find a balance in achieving visionary goals with the data and facts the Federal Reserve now delivers. The critical puzzle pieces of knowledge we’ve longed for arrives, however these transits in mutable signs means some fluctuations in the coming months are probable.
March 18 – 22: Venus and Mars now highlighted by social-minded innovations are challenged by surprises from Uranus in matters of finance.
Money and partnerships (Venus) as well as humanitarian or combatant actions (Mars) are likely distressed when squared off by the planet of shock and awe (Uranus). Technology, cryptocurrencies, communications and transportation are broad sectors that tend to be affected under these influences.
What the Fed or other media have to report can be upsetting for some or liberating for others. These planetary transits suggest the interest rate hikes have sunk in and will flip the market dramatically higher or lower. Uranus and ensuing fiscal policies take the lead as we maneuver between positions of equanimity and aggression.
Aside from the financial marketplace, other additional potential outcomes are sudden earthquakes or airborne catastrophes. The one constant theme about Uranus is unpredictability so as they say, hope for the best and plan for the worst.
March 20: Sun ingress into Aries, the house of “Me first”.
Zodiac sign Aries is guided by Mars. As much as I love the Spring Equinox, this transition opens up ego-driven initiatives that can become more war-like. We’ll start to see more forthright action taking place throughout the world. Again, investments in defense stocks, sports, machinery, mining and metals will be in sharp focus.
March 22 – 24: Mercury conjoins Jupiter and Neptune, again in the area of hidden secrets, deception, dreams and fantasy.
Will it be more knowledge and conversations about inflation, inflated expectations, or both? We’re still learning to uncover clues and alleviate riddles on what to expect for next month. Don’t believe all idealistic notions you think, hear or read. Dreams are wonderful but fantasy can be purely conjecture when investing your hard-earned monies.
March 25 – 28: Venus and Saturn conjoin in the 11th sector of groups and societal interests.
Toward the month’s ends there’s a solemn or even somber vibe with Saturn in charge. Financial and partnership interests (Venus) seek solid structure and demand responsibility (Saturn). This is a good time for collective societies to join together for serious talks about social improvements, or think more seriously about your asset allocations for the rest of the year. Lighthearted love and soaring stocks may seem a faint memory now.
March 28: Moon conjoins Mars, Venus and Saturn in the 11th sector of groups and societal interests.
This suggests the general public is focused on innovation and humanitarian needs. As for stock market investments, Saturn can feel restrictive and limiting. You may face difficult choices wondering where to find the next pot of gold. There’s undoubtedly an emotionally serious tone that is brief but concentrated.
March 31 - April 1: New Moon in Aries, where “it’s all about me”.
Bold strength, courage and renewed self-interests become new motivators for April investing. Until then, dream big and aim high while trying stay grounded and plant seeds for growth. Resistance to volatility is futile.
Is it possible to time and predict the market perfectly with absolute certainty? No, but you can get good clues about overall current trends when using an ephemeris as your guide. This is one reason why J.P. Morgan is quoted as saying, “millionaires don't need astrologers, but billionaires do.”
As explained on Wikipedia, “In astronomy and celestial navigation, an ephemeris (plural: ephemerides) is a book with tables that gives the trajectory of naturally occurring astronomical objects as well as artificial satellites in the sky, i.e., the position (and possibly velocity) over time.”
Now we can easily review ephemerides online complete with asteroids, lunar nodes and other cosmic points by visiting Astro.com:
The ephemeris I use is geocentric (the sky transitions as viewed by humans on Earth) and based on seasonal calendar Tropical zodiac movements. Don’t knock this ancient language of astrology until you’ve tried it! Experienced astrologers are often able to make reliable calculations using their knowledge of sky symbolism.
You only need to understand basic mathematical principles to read an ephemeris or analyze circular wheel charts. The principles divide a 360° circle into a pie of 12 sections and uses numbers 0 – 29 as degrees for easy arithmetic. Math and science were my worst subjects in school and yet it’s super easy with today’s computer software to calculate positions.
Learning to interpret the symbolic language takes a bit longer. I’ve been studying planetary cycles for 40+ years.
Our Milky Way Galaxy solar system is filled with many planets, dwarf planets, fixed stars and millions of asteroids, not to mention sensitive points like apogees. Transits often overlap and create extremely active months of fluctuating and intersecting energies.
