December 2018


I must point out in advance due to the advent of robotic trading, which is more prevalent these days than in the past, astrological influences have taken a back seat in analysing and determining how markets are likely to behave. The machines are programmed with entrances, exit points and news events. They are not emotionally involved, as such astrological influence have a minimal affect. Therefore, astrological forecasts on the site will highlight and treat only the most essential influences that may affect market moves.

Below are the major aspects that may influence moves in December.

12-01 Mercury Sentagon Mars: 3 day window for larger moves opens, from Friday Nov 30 to Monday Dec 3rd.

12-02 Sun Square Mars: Likely to produce down moves on Monday Dec 3rd in early trading.

12-05 Sun Square Neptune: Another stress aspect mid week – need for clear thinking - Subject to fanciful thoughts.

(Note: The US stock market will be closed on Wednesday Dec 05th to observe the passing of former president  George Bush Sr.)  

12-07 Mars Conjunction Neptune: A new Moon accompanies this conjunction. Increases probability of a shift in short term trends from either a top or bottom.

12-12 Mars Sentagon Jupiter: Jupiter can cause optimistic thinking.  Price whips likely between the 12th and 14th.

12-16 Venus Sextile Saturn:  This aspect exacts on a Sunday - Has little influence on weekday trading.

12-16 Mercury Sentagon Neptune:   although it exacts on Sunday also, the 17th can see larger moves caused from unrealistic expectations.

12-18 Mars Sextile Pluto: Better prospects for advances with a less negative perspective - Can be an up day. 

12-20 Sun Trine Uranus: Uranus can have markets move erratically under this influence and probably higher.

12-21 Venus Trine Neptune: Supports advances although thinking can be somewhat skewed. Moods should be better today.

12-21 Mercury Conjunction Jupiter:  Full moon on the 22nd can accompany a change in short term trends.  Advances indicated today under this influence.

12-24 Mercury Square Neptune: Due to the early close the aspect may have little effect on price direction... If it does it can be lower, especially nearing the close.

12-26 Mercury Sentagon Mars: The day after Christmas may see vigorous advances today or possibly tomorrow from aggressive Mars.

12-28 Venus Sextile Pluto:  Pluto again can change trends today! However since we're dealing with a sextile aspect up side moves are favored!

Reviewing December

The month is likely to open on a high note, or see larger moves if not higher. Mid week of the first week turns more stressful. New Moon with a Mars Neptune conjunction on the 7th indicates a trend change coming up. However the way things are going lately it may not last.

The second week of the month appears to be a replay of the first week! We could see larger moves nearing the end of the 2nd week, which will probably be higher.

The third week starts with some helpful aspects early and finishes the week with more beneficial aspects. Aspects this week favor advances a good part of the week.

The final week of Dec has a couple of other supportive aspects after the holiday.  We should see the averages making advances as we close out the final month of the year!
