Are we headed for another financial bubble?

Uranus will change signs this week, moving into Aries on Friday March 11th. Because Uranus rules sudden changes and shocking events, when it changes direction or changes signs it often signifies a radical shift in financial markets.

With the stock market reaching historic gains, some analysts are debating that we are approaching another bubble, and others argue that the market is more normal now after two years of artificially low prices.


The shift from Uranus into Aries is likely to bring with it a surge of courage that will infect everything in our lives with an increased proclivity to take risks.  Unlike Jupiter and Sagittarius, which imbue us with confidence and faith that all will end well, Uranus desires change and in Aries that change comes with an aggressive quality that thrives on danger.  I suspect we will see the return of day trading and this sort of investment behavior that almost invariably spells trouble.

The surge of Uranus in Aries will be followed by the confusion of Neptune’s movement into Pisces a few weeks later (April 5).  With Neptune in its own sign, the way will not seem as clear and one’s idealistic vision will appear more real than what the mind knows to be true.  Neptune’s last journey through Pisces (1848-1862) coincided with the California Gold Rush, in which “gold fever” swept the nation.


If I were giving financial advice, which I am not, I would continue to recommend being extremely prudent under these influences.  I personally believe that the danger of a global collapse is probably behind us, but the danger of becoming infected with illusion is probably not. Stable investments in tangible assets such as metals, actual real estate (rather than REITs), companies that are actually producing things and making real money – these are the places I’ll be putting my own money over the next months.  But this is not investment advice!

  • Your Name

    Good thing that you don’t give financial advice, because people
    should demand that you make good their losses.
    God am I tired of hearing these weak-willed astrologers, like you, who won’t accept what the stars are telling everyone…mainly
    “the worst is now behind us”.
    Why do we need freakin’ astrologers when even the unschooled can see right before their eyes what is happening??
    Lynn, fess up. Are you on the government payroll, or do you just lie
    on your spare time?

  • edna

    How rude and gutless, too. Didn’t even have the balls to leave a name.
    I don’t envy you, Lynn. Every crank with an internet connection is free to post their virtual vomit.

  • Jillian

    I’m an S+P trader and a regular reader of Lynn’s blog. She doesn’t often comment on the financial markets, and when she does it’s always with the caveat that she’s not giving advice on how to trade/invest. That said, her calls are generally accurate–often far moreso than the endless lines of talking heads/alleged financial wizards who fill the time on the three main financial networks.

    Great advice Lynn!
    When do you think all the illusion will settle down? Can you give us a time frame for when the combination of Uranus in Aries and Neptune in Pisces will not make for such a risky investment mindset?

  • Joseph

    Good advice Lynn, regardless of “your name’s” trolling foxdriven commentary.
    Current significant jump in oil prices is the kind of catalyst that can make the existing financial bubble pop very quickly. Whether that occurs or not is pure speculation. This is unchartered waters for everyone.
    There exist so much flux in the field right now. Better to understand and comment about the existing wave dynamics, which you artfully do, rather than predict how and when these waves are going to crest.

    Thanks for the insightful post. Probably a good indicator of how weak the financial sector is, how the conservatives and lobbyists will react, and how the shift will play out will depend on the upcoming Jupiter Saturn opposition on March 28th. It could trigger an even wider need for a more sound wealth distribution.

  • Reagen

    Jupiter oppose Saturn on the 28th? That should be interesting. Those are both my money houses. Perhaps that would be Saturn’s groundedness keeping a lid on Jupiter’s tendency to be wild with optimism… then again, I am expecting an inheritance. Hmmm..
    As far as the oil situation goes .. DRILL Baby DRILL! When Will we learn that lesson.

  • Denverboz

    Drill Baby Drill!!! LMAO When will people learn we will never be able to drill enough to meet our countries excessive energy needs.
    Ain’t gonna happen! The only thing it would do is further enrich the oligarchs who control the oil. So sad the ignorance around this issue.
    So Lynn what does the US chart say as far as our getting ahead of the curve and starting to develop green energy? Or are we doomed to staying committed to trillion dollar defense budgets for the purpose of ensuring our oil spigots from the ME stay open?……….. peace………
