Slow planet sign ingresses

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Dec 27, 2017 5:15 pm

All year, Pluto and Saturn remain in Sagittarius and Neptune remains in Aquarius.

The year begins with Uranus in Pisces and Jupiter in Libra.

Feb 2 - Uranus enters Aries (for the duration)
Oct 15 - Jupiter enters Scorpio


Due to retrogradation, Mars spends half the year in the constellation of its exaltation, Capricorn. Here are the dates that Mars (initially in Libra) enters each new constellation.

Jan 19 - Scorpio
Mar 8 - Sagittarius
May 4 - Capricorn
Nov 7 - Aquarius
Dec 24 - Pisces

Re: Slow planet aspects

Here is a summary of what to expect from the most important aspects of the year. Notice that they come and go - I'll give the dates they are exact with the interpretations - but it might give a better feel of the year to read them more like "these are the waves sloshing back and forth through the year.

Jupiter-Pluto (60) (1/15, 4/14, 9/12, 11/28)
Events challenge existing value systems, ideologies, and the political and other power systems that support them. Attempts at political destabilization may occur. – A blow to economic conditions. – Outlandishly freaky climatological events.'

Jupiter-Saturn (45) (3/14, 9/3)
Inherently political and economic: “What will it cost me to win?” or “What do I gain if I lose?” A “seesaw,” opposites in comparable strength battling for dominance, without either getting clear advantage. Traditional institutions, finance, business, religion, politics.

Jupiter-Neptune (120) (5/25, 8/19)
Events of powerful inspiration, faith, and idealism. Compelling surreal optimism. Belief-driven motivation and decision-making; powerful opposing belief and bigotry. Excess, over-abundance, immoderation. glut. Entertainment themes).

Uranus-Neptune (135) (6/16, 12/15)
High-impact events, explosive and rupturing (physically or psychologically), stirring waves of mass reaction, and overflowing the bounds of conventional thinking and expectations. Stimulates psycho-spiritual evolution, or at least very altered states of consciousness.

Did you see my full forecast from the Capsolar?
http://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=1761#p12000

It includes:
...Washington has a hidden (PVP) conjunction of Mars-Jupiter (1°15'). This furthers the Moon-Mercury-Saturn concerns of financial crisis. It could be as slight as the government shutdown of 2013 or as ravaging as the market crash of 1929, but probably will be something between. Resources are squandered, stretched past their capacity. Moon-Saturn does not leave much room for positive expressions of Mars-Jupiter, such as boosted productivity. Religious evangelism and other belief-driven enthusiasm and aggression accelerate. Bigots have louder voices. In nature, as in human affairs, expect stormy weather.

Jim asked:

Yes, I read, but forgot. But now I am paying more attention to this Ma-Jup feature with a possible passage of a trillion $ infrastructure bill. No way, I see room for this amt of $ in the budget, but now a days, when it comes to DC--I can't understand a-lot of things making much sense.

I think we should spend a trillion on it anyway - run it like New Deal programs, create thousands of jobs from it while getting some good done.

Trump campaigned on that number, but now is talking about $200 million (and seeing how much of that he can get the marketplace to pay for instead of Congress). That will be a way to get a feather in his cap without getting anything useful done.

I'm not ready to predict financial crisis yet, but it isn't like the "4 Jupiters" year we had last year. Someone just asked me where I thought the market would go in 2018 and I said, "Well... this year won't end like last year." Moon-Saturn (+ Mercury) and Mars-Jupiter, with on-going sense of crisis... not money-friendly.

Of course, the real trigger of the crisis is the tax-break give-away to the rich. Taxes should not have been cut. Instead, the government should have invested the same amount of money into health care and infrastructure.

Eurasia Group Report for 2018

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:43 pm

OK, this is interesting. A little scary. Never hurts to get opinions from other methods of forecasting. Eurasia Group Report 2018
The world is now closer to geopolitical depression than to a reversion to past stability.

Yep, without a doubt the world is moving ever closer to a 'geopolitical depression.' If Trump has his way-- US will be isolated, look what has happen recently with UN. My only concern from a personal standpoint is a 'financial depression.' I put a-lot of confidence in Jim's SMA work with Financial Panics, and I don't see one of these with SMA in the near future. But, I can read possible negative financial things beginning with the tight Mo-Me-Sat cnj in 2018 Capsolar. We just have to see what happens and I will be paying close attention to action in DOW for possible clue for future financial things.

The seeds of the Great Depression were sown during the Harding "Return to Normalcy" and Coolidge "The Business of America is Business" administrations (Hoover had some blame coming, but he got more blame than he deserved). Based on the historical precedent, the Trump "Make America White, I mean Great Again" administration will avoid what's coming and leave his successors to reap the whirlwind. OTOH, maybe things move faster nowadays?

Jim's financial panic SMA work has proven to me--panics are predetermined, or foreordained; power/political people are just pawns with the preordained workings of the heavens. It is indeed a Great Mystery.

I strongly agree, but particular leaders and policies can make it better or worse. Yet another reason Trump being POTUS send shivers down my spine. Three guesses which way Trump will (unwittingly?) lean--and the last two don't count.

Alas! Trump missed an awesome opportunity today. He missed the opportunity NOT to say that his "nuclear button" (is that what we're calling it these days?) is bigger and more powerful than Kim's. It was such a wonderful opportunity and he (how can I say this without seeming prurient) blew it.

He also missed the chance not to claim the absence of air crashes in the US that resulted in loss of life was because of him.
