I pulled some predictions about the economy from past postings that may apply to what we are in right now. Here’s one from January 21, 2009:
Despite the financial sour pickle we are going to eat and the release of information (probably within the next day or so) that will make the market start to free fall some more, we will be a better, stronger, wiser, kinder people. Also with Saturn in the 5th, the stock market will have the squeeze put on it both in terms of new laws and regulations and also its numbers continuing to constrict rather then bloom.
I think we may see the end of capitalism as we have known it. But once new laws (which there will likely be many international as well) are put into place, there stock market will recover. And with Saturn being in Virgo, down the road the next set of stocks to get hit will be health care related stuff as it seems Obama will restructure that as well.
Another from December 2 2008:
Here’s the other thing, in the Declaration chart Pluto is about to shred it. I’m glad it’s not our real chart, (and if it is well, we’ll know it for sure soon) but rather our more unconscious one, or we’d be in even bigger trouble then we already are. But it’s still posed to do some major damage to our US Cons. Sign chart this will happen a little later though in March of 2009, and will again most likely hit speculators and the stock market.
Ironically, this Monday Pluto hit 0 degrees again as it had the last time we had the major drop in November, and that is directly on the US Const. Sign charts south node in the 5th — meaning, what we have reaped in the market we are going to be sowing, and it’s going to be powerful, and painful. I think the Dow’s big Pluto over the ascendant happening at the end of December into January will be more about the horrible corruption, lies and sociopathic behavior of CEOs that will come out making investors think twice about trusting their money to these people, many of whom are really criminals in business suits. This is the shore I think the Tsunami is headed in terms of the Dow.
From December 4, 2008:
OK, I don’t know if Citicorp has officially gone under yet, but they will or they will be absorbed by another company completely by February 09 when transiting Neptune in Aquarius makes an exact square form their first house to Neptune in Scorpio in their 10th. They have been seriously deluding themselves. Also Pluto is going through the company’s 12th house and making an applying square to their Saturn in the second. They’ve been keeping secrets, and if they do get absorbed by another company, whoever takes them on will be hit with a necessary and very brutal restructuring in order to save what’s left which would take place in March of 2010. This lapse in time will probably be because the company has been hiding a lot and it will take time to sort out all the mess.
I just wanted to do some re-capping of past predictions. It’s not easy to find stuff on this blog. There’s so much! Gee whiz I blab a lot. Anyway, remember the contest is still on, I’m also still looking for people to submit their opinions for the Readers/Writers page and I’m open to all questions (that of course pertain to the broader picture, not just personal ones). Hope you all are doing well and by now have gotten out of the market as it looks like we will see it continue to decline for a while.
Best wishes and many blessings to you,
One thought on “The Economy… predictions from around the blog”
The bottom is when the sentiment changes. The sentiment that I watch are (though I don’t know of any defined metrics for these)
– “American Dream” of home ownership – why can’t people be happy just renting if they cannot afford it?
– Feeling of entitlement of un-necessary material comforts like the latest gadgets, etc.
– Politicians stop talking about a floor on the house prices (high unaffordable are the root cause for the issues – low interest rate is not a long term solution)
