The Venus Retrograde rally in world stock markets this last couple of weeks shows again the value of astrology to society when applied to financial markets.
On March 6th, Venus turned retrograde. This happens every nineteen months and lasts about six weeks. On March 6th, the Dow Jones fell to 6470 - its lowest level in 12 years. It has continued rising ever since.
In the 1990's financial astrologers predicted that 2008 would be the year of the global financial crisis. Astrology is invaluable as a forecasting tool.
We are now nearing the end of the Venus retrograde. She goes direct on April 17th. And during this time, the markets have gone up with only two minor corrections lasting 1-2 days each. We have the pundits saying that the economy and housing markets have bottomed.
On April 17th when Venus goes direct - will we realise that the financial decisions made by governments were misguided and the rosy forecasts were just wishful thinking?
The Jupiter/Neptune conjunction cycles reaches a peak in May-July - so there will still be many more positive forecasts. Also stock markets will likely continue highers and we will question the soundness of all these financial decisions made under the Venus Retrograde. This will include the G20.
Once this conjunction begins to wane, I think that the markets will drop considerably. Indeed we could be looking at a Dow Jones index of around 4000 by November 09.
