MMA Comments for the week of August 31, 2015

   All in all, it continues to be an amazing Venus retrograde period this time around, July 25 through September 6. One more week to go. But don’t celebrate just yet. Eleven days later Mercury turns retrograde on September 17, and on the same day, Jupiter will make its 14-year opposition to Neptune. If you thought the last month was wild and crazy, just consider the possibilities around September 17, +/- 2 weeks. If there are any geocosmic signatures corresponding to loss of control more than Jupiter in hard aspect to Neptune or Uranus, I am not sure what they are. Maybe Saturn to Uranus (November 2008 through July 2010)?

    Now, this doesn’t mean that everything will fall apart, or even that the stock markets of the world will crash, although that is a possibility. Jupiter/Neptune aspects just as often correspond to periods of irrational exuberance when stock prices soar. And of course, the last two Mercury retrograde dates (May 19, Jan 22) corresponded to cycles crests too - and then prices fell hard. The combination of Mercury retrograde in air signs again for the third and last time this cycle (see the relevance of this in the Forecast 2015 Book for this three times this occurs - Jan 22, May 1, and September 17), combined with Jupiter in opposition to Neptune, has a correspondence to the dynamics of misunderstandings, miscommunications, and maybe even intentional misinformation. Rumors designed to harm the reputations of good people can occur. It can be highly clever and deceptive. It is a time when usually smart people fall prey to very devious con artists and it is even worse for those who are naïve. This is a time to carefully consider the sources and check out claims for accuracy before putting any of your money (or heart) on the line for someone else.

Although 2015 is only a little more than half over, several forecasts made in the 2015 book have already unfolded. We will list a couple of the forecasts below as of August 10, but a more inclusive list will be updated on the front page of our website at  

•    Federal Reserve Board Does Not Raise Rates: “In 2015, however, the Fed seems to maintain its easing policies for the greater part of the year, at least through August when Jupiter moves into Virgo, forming a harmonious trine the FRB Sun and sextile to its Pluto. Prior to that, Jupiter in Leo forms a trine to Uranus in Aries, and both form a grand trine to the FRB Venus in Sagittarius. There are no hard aspects from Saturn, so the Fed is in no hurry to raise rates for much of 2015. Things begin to change in January 2016, when Saturn starts to cross the FRB natal Mercury, in oppisiton to its  natal Saturn. This signatire of “tightening” will be in force until the 2016 election in November 2016….  These studies indicate that the Fed will likely continue its low interest rate and accommodative monetary policies through most of 2015, and quite possibly into 2016.”  Throughout the entire year (and even in late 2014), most market analysts were convinced that the Fed would raise rates. As of this writing in August 2015, they still haven’t raised rates.
