posted by Lynn Hayes

The US stock market has been manic-depressive lately, swinging from wild highs to abysmal lows. Mercury began to station (its apparent motion slowed down to a crawl) on August 2nd and it turned retrograde on August 4th.  On August 2nd […]

Are we headed for another financial bubble?

posted by Lynn Hayes

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 […]

The Dow at a 2-year high: can it last?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Wall Street loves a good Republican victory, and yesterday the financial press said that the market was up in anticipation of the Republicans taking the House.  Today the story was that a market reached a new high after the Federal […]

Stock market optimism continues a little longer

posted by Lynn Hayes

The conjunction of Jupiter to Uranus is still creating optimism in the markets that defy the news: “U.S. stocks closed higher Monday as investors were encouraged by earnings from Citigroup and a measure of home-builder confidence that topped expectations.” (read […]

I really think the worst is over

posted by Lynn Hayes

I’ve been saying (just read through this summer’s posts on this blog) that after the last of the severe cardinal events in July, August and September we would start digging out of the worst of the economic problems, and this […]

America’s Second House of Money

posted by Lynn Hayes

The obsession of the United States with money and the amassing of more and more of it can be seen in the fact that Pluto, the planet of compulsive behavior as well as the experiences that create the death of […]

Stocks fall sharply as the Saturn/Pluto square approaches

posted by Lynn Hayes

This is what I’ve been warning about as Saturn and Pluto create an atmosphere of doom and gloom: Stocks and interest rates tumbled Wednesday as investors around the world took a bleaker view of the U.S. economy. The Dow Jones industrial average fell […]

Spend or save for economic growth?

Last weekend  I watched the debate between Paul Krugman and Niall Ferguson on Fareed Zakaria’s show GPS.  Paul Krugman is a Nobel prize-winning economist and author with an expertise in international economics, and Niall Ferguson is a historian with a specialty in […]

Jupiter/Uranus fuels baseless optimism

posted by Lynn Hayes

As I predicted would happen when Jupiter (confidence and optimism) combined with Uranus (sudden changes and abrupt shifts), financial markets suddenly decided that things aren’t so bad in Europe after all and global markets are soaring today. This sudden (Uranus) optimism […]

This is not financial advice

posted by Lynn Hayes

But if it were, I would advise against getting caught up in the current euphoria on Wall Street.  After last year’s 1000 point tumble, stocks were way up yesterday in a big tech rally, and gold hit a new record. […]

Mercury retrograde hits Wall Street

posted by Lynn Hayes

The Dow Jones industrial average had a chaotic day yesterday, crashing more than 1000 points and then careening wildly back up.  At the end of the day the Dow had dropped about 3%. According to the Washington Post: Some price swings […]

Consumer confidence rose in April – what’s next?

posted by Lynn Hayes

It’s not surprising that consumers breathed a collective sigh of relief in April as Saturn, planet of restriction and limitation, retrograded out of reach of the challenging square to Pluto that has been evoking intense feelings of despair since it […]

Astrological financial update

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes Venus and Jupiter only conjoin for a day or two, but when the two “benefics” get together it’s usually a very pleasant and optimistic time.  Today they conjoin in Pisces, the sign of mystical wonder and illusion. […]

Here’s why economists should learn astrology

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes From today’s New York Times: If only we’d had more power, we could have kept the financial crisis from getting so bad. That has been the position of Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, and other regulators. […]

Friday’s jobs report is less worse news than usual

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes We are in a rare period right now where there are no planets in retrograde motion.  John McCormick’s excellent research from his classic book “The Book of Retrogrades” reports that all planets are “direct” (moving forward) only […]

Ponzi schemes and astrologer

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes, reposted from July 2008. I have always felt that if the Universe wanted us to be able to predict the future, It wouldn’t have given us a life of mystery. The unfolding of the mystery and the […]

Revisited: China, the face of Pluto in Capricorn

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes Nearly two years ago, when Pluto had first entered Capricorn, I wrote this post about the new balance of world power which will likely see China at its head: Remember that Pluto rules over breakdown and destruction, […]

Conspiracy Corner: Our broken economy

Gerald Celente: Revolution or Renaissance?

“Fed survey shows recession may be over”

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes And I’m as big an optimist as anyone so I’d like to believe it.  The Federal Reserve surveyed businesses around the US and “found economic activity stabilizing or improving in most regions.”  However, this growth is dependent […]

Pluto in Capricorn: Betting on Death

What does astrology tell us about financial markets now?

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes The past two weeks have seen a big rally in the US stock market, buoyed most likely by the conjunction of Jupiter (optimism) and Neptune (dreams and illusions).  The presence of Chiron there adds caution to what […]

Retrogrades brings reversals

Interesting timing of bank stress test results

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes Evidently the Federal Reserve will disclose the results of the “stress test” on May 7, the day that Mercury turns retrograde.   While bank executives are still muddling through stress-test results, their communication managers are wrestling with […]

Venus prepares to turn direct – stock market reversal?

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes Planets of course do not really change direction and move backward, but astrology studies the motion of the planets from our perspective here on earth which distorts the actual planetary motion but provides accurate astrological data.  When […]

When will the Global Recession be over?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Financial astrology in the news and a look at the Renaissance.

posted by Lynn Hayes

by Lynn Hayes I guess Wall Street is realizing their so-called financial experts know very little about the ups and downs of our financial system, and astrology is actually gaining more respect in the business world.  It’s about time! According […]

The Fed still doesn’t get it

posted by Lynn Hayes

A “bear market rally” next week?

Pluto in Capricorn and bank bailouts across the globe
