And of course, something big is overdue to turn as everyone knows. March is the 60th month since the bull market began March 6-9, 2009. There has never been a 4-year cycle in USA stocks that advanced longer than 60 months. The one in 1982-1987 lasted 60 months, the longest in our records, and it was followed by a 40% decline in the following two months. The second longest bull market within the 4-year cycle lasted from July 1932 through March 1937 (56 months), and was followed by a 50% decline over the next 12 months.
Could it happen again? Could a 40-50% decline happen within the next year? Sure. Uranus is square to Pluto where huge moves are possible in a very brief time. As a matter of fact, under these signatures, it is possible to see most of that move down completed by late April, when Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto all form the powerful cardinal grand square in 13-14 degrees of cardinal signs – right on the Sun of Mr. Putin (13 Libra) and the USA (13 Cancer). It’s a classic celestial battle in the heavens, translating to a classical clash right here, on Earth. As above, so below.
Everything is escalating to the March 29-April 25 period, which may be the most intense planetary pattern of a lifetime. It doesn’t mean a specific event happens then, but it could. It could also be a very profound decision made by one of several government or banking leaders, the consequences of which may not be known right away. The last time anything remotely this powerful occurred was in late July-early August 2010. At that time, the Federal Reserve Board made the decision to not end its quantitative easing program, but instead expand it into QE2. It changed the entire financial world. Investors were forced into becoming traders unless they were quite happy with returns of less than 3% over 10 years. Savers vanished from the economy as interest rates (yields on savings accounts) dropped to 0 -.25% and to this day have not recovered. Imagine: if you had $100,000 in your saving account in mid-2007 and it earned 5% per annum as it did back then, your account today would be worth close to $150,000, an increase of 50% - an extra $50,000 in your account. But the rates did not stay at 5%. They fell to 0% and instead of having a $50,000 extra increase, you have nothing, due to the decision made at that time. That’s a lot of spending power taken from the economy. The thing is, this forthcoming cosmic pattern is just as powerful as that one in 2010, and the consequences could be just as important to the world at large.
