May 13, 1999
Yesterday morning I got up a bit early for my morning walk in the park (Ace insists). I took my camera, in hopes I could get a decent shot of the New Moon conjoining Jupiter Rising. This is the photo I took.
Wow! Did it ever make an entry. The chart below shows the CHAOS brought about by this sign in the sky.
Note that at the end of the day, the yellow flux lines crossed, as shown at D. This, and the New Moon entering the market with Jupiter rising suggested a change.
Just after the open, it was learned that Rubin had resigned. But why the panic on this? After all, many cabinet members leave late in a second term. Ah, what time. Note that the flux lines at G, H, and K also include Venus. At the exact moment that the news of Rubin's resignation came, the Exchange rotated 90 degrees to Venus.
In the energy field, quantum jumps (bandgap energy jumps) are common. This one just happened very fast. Prices dropped sharply to the flux lines at F, again making a 1.27 retracement, then bounced back sharply. So the moon flux lines crossed overnight, then the rotating exchange triggered the chaotic drop early the next day-just as the Moon approached Jupiter rising.
Last april, we had a Jupiter, Venus, New Moon rising. It too dropped the market.
I think of the zone between one moon phase leaving the market and another entering the market as "Chaos Land." It sure was this time. But there is an interesting thing about the drop, rally, and the next low. The drop occurred about 22 minutes before the New Moon, the rally peaked on the New Moon, then the market made a low at H, as the Exchange passed Jupiter, about 22 minutes after the New Moon. Nice symetry.
That secondary low at H came at the Fibonacci .618 retracement on the Moon and Venus flux lines. That restored the marke to a more normal, orderly day. The market followed the -MoonTide at J, right into the close.
So all the action came from the New Moon making an entrance, accompanied by Jupiter and trumpeted by Venus. What a way to make an entrance!
