Ray Merriman RE: This Week

Given all the tension this week with these big ass aspects I thought I would go poke over at Ray Merriman (Financial Astrologer) website and see what he has got to say.   It turns out he is in Amsterdam hosting a workshop this weekend.  His weekly column was shorter and he encouraged readers to go back a week to read his memo.  

I was not surprised by any of it and I don't think you will be as well.

From this LINK.

It will be a challenge to describe all of the possibilities that could happen June 23-29, and even a week or two before and after, for planetary patterns of this type don’t often complete their correspondence to human activity until well after the cosmic event. This time band begins with a gentle Sun-Neptune trine aspect on Saturday, June 23. This aspect has actually a rather strong correlation to reversals in stock prices within 10 trading days. But its symbolism is very modest in comparison to what happens the next day, June 24, when the first passage of the Uranus-Pluto waxing square unfolds. This column has been describing the explosive quality of this combination for the past several months, even years. There is nothing in astrology that even remotely conveys the possibility of social unrest and political upheaval in the world as Uranus and Pluto in a hard aspect. The last time they were in a hard aspect (conjunction) to one another was in 1965-1966. The time before that was 1931-1934 (waning square). As stated, this is only the first passage this time around. Due to their retrograde motions, they will make seven passes in all, lasting through March 17, 2015. It would be unusual to see something explosive break out next week on just the first passage, but due to the other powerful geocosmic signatures in effect June 23-29, it is certainly possible.

The following day – Monday, June 25 - Jupiter will form a waxing square to Neptune and Saturn will turn direct. Both of these are Level 1 geocosmic signatures, which means they have very high (70% or greater) correlations to primary or greater cycles in stock markets within 9 and 11 trading days respectively. These are two contradictory principles, which make the interpretation of this period so challenging. Jupiter-Neptune is oftentimes “irrationally exuberant,” while Saturn stationary is usually “irrationally pessimistic” or worried. When they occur together, “irrational exuberance” could morph into hysteria and loss of control. With Uranus present in its square to Pluto, the danger is a “panic” if cool heads don’t prevail.

It doesn’t end there. I mean, there is more – three days and three aspects more. On June 27, Venus ends its retrograde period and returns to direct motion. Historically this has a 73% correlation to primary or greater cycles within 10 trading days. One would normally look forward to a Venus station as a time of love and agreement. But with Saturn also stationary within three days, it leans more towards disappointment and break down in agreements. One side feels manipulated, and it is hard to have love and agreement when both parties are not feeling it mutually. Of course with Jupiter square Neptune, both parties may not immediately be fully conscious of what they just agreed to. It sounded good in principle, but the “devil is in the details,” and then one party may realize later there was a “sleight of hand trick” inserted into the contract.

But it doesn’t end there either. It ends (temporarily) on or around June 29, when the transiting Sun hits the Uranus-Pluto square, forming a cardinal T-square. That is, the Sun will square Uranus and be in opposition to Pluto on that Friday. This is known as a “translation of the Sun” to the Uranus-Pluto square. And both of these aspects are also Level 1 signatures. The Sun-Uranus square is especially powerful, with an 82% historical correlation to primary or greater reversals in stock indices within 11 trading days.

The whole combination of these celestial phenomena suggests that within two weeks of June 26, there will be “a whole of shaking going on.” The Earth may move, and so may many financial markets and the security of many political leaders’ position. At its worst, this is a highly deceptive and untrustworthy time between people (like political leaders), because one side is intentionally misleading the other. At its best, it is a time when deceptive practices are revealed, and the truth comes out, resulting in a revelation from which powerful and constructive changes may now begin to transpire. This can also be a period of further credit downgrades of major companies and nations. On the one hand, these are exciting times when innovative new ideas are brought to the fore. On the other hand, these are dangerous times when trust is at a premium. Do you really know that person who "has your back?"
