Unfortunately, I was looking at the charts and writing down my impressions a word doc and it disappeared so I have to start all over again. Generally, August should be a good month for Gold, the Sun is its strongest in Leo and the Sun rules Gold along with Pluto. Luckily the same reader sent me the charts I used for my original analysis of the Gold market. I’m using the Gold futures chart and Spdr Gold Trust, so if your interested in investing there maybe some general cross over into all gold markets, but bear in mind I’m specifically dealing with these 2 charts and my information will be directly related to them. Of course because it is a commodity the charts should reflect general, overall trends but weirdness can happen so there you go. I’m reprinting the charts here for reference:
So I’ll start with SGT, it looks like it will continue to go up and get more intense toward the middle of the month as Pluto retrogrades into 2 degrees Capricorn making a trine to natal Uranus in Pisces. I would think this could be some sort of news that makes people feel the need to invest in something tangible and real like gold. Pluto is going through SGTs first house for a long, long time. I see Pluto as a co-ruler of Gold as it is the domain of plutocrats and with Pluto going through SGT’s first house there will be a change in the way they do business. My only caveat with SGT is the power they will project could mask underlying problems but for the purposes of ups and downs, it will be trending up in the market place until we get to the late February of 2013 when there maybe some questions of legal trouble or ethics that rear and then calm for a while, things will calm by mid-late summer of 2013 but the trouble will not be truly over, it will just be the first sign of something amiss. By December of 2013 into 2014 the next level of trouble will rear up, this could cause concerns about SGT and whether it will be able to sustain the potential losses and perhaps even legal action or trouble. By the end of January 2014 the problem will start to find resolution, ultimately the issue will come to full resolution in 2020.
OK, let’s look at Gold Futures, Pluto is transiting through GFs 3rd house making a waxing conjunction to the sun on the 4th house cusp. In my opinion this indicates people’s perception of the value of Gold is driving the price upward. As Pluto retrogrades closer to a positive aspect (sextile) GF will continue to climb slowly upward until a slow down in mid-September of 2010 (but still going up) and then as the aspect grows farther away in late November the slowdown should really start to grind to stasis and finally in late January the positive aspect will be weak until it has no real effect at the same time Pluto will begin its square of GF’s natal Pluto in the 1st house and GF’s rising in Libra at 8 degrees. This will probably bring about changes in the way business is conducted in this industry as it may turn out again there will be legal trouble, ethics issues and lead to new legislation and change which will impact how the market goes forward. Once these issues are settled it will take a while for GF to recover from the mess as Pluto will first conjunct the natal Sun, again causing a transformation in identity and the way business is done and then as Pluto moves into the 4th house and conjuncts natal Mercury and opposes natal Saturn in the 10th, skepticism about the new regulations and cleaned up mess will hold back GFs climb, lowering prices.
The first of these difficult aspects happen in late February of 2012 when Pluto hits GFs natal Sun and makes GF restructure with heavy pressure until the mid-late February 2012 and goes on until late May 2012. Another round starts up in Mid-December 2012 until Mid January 2013 this builds as Pluto get closer and closer to the natal Saturn opposition and conjunction with Mercury at the beginning of March 2015. The issue will seem to go out of public purview and even seem like it’s not going to be that big of a deal by December of 2013, people may even think the issue settled, or the worst as being over, but it won’t be, another round will be coming. Having transiting Pluto conjunct natal Mercury and opposing natal Saturn in the 10th starting in March of 2015 will hold prices back, there will be bad public opinion, bad press and a dampening of investment in GF.
Hope that helps and that’s it for me for now with the stock market. I really don’t like doing predictions about it since I know nothing about it and I would not personally invest in it. I feel it is a rigged game and not for people outside the ring of those in the know. I also feel we are in a weird irrational bubble right now that is not properly reflecting reality and due to this the market is impossible to predict with anything remotely rational, this is not surprising with Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. But it will be a very long time before the playing field is truly level and fair. For those of you who do understand and are in the know, go for it. I hope the stars can help, for the rest of us mere mortals far from the shadow of Wall Street best to stick with things we know.
