New high in DJIA follows astrological pattern

Cycle II—Security and Physical Goods—1942-1988

This Saturn/Uranus cycle began with a conjunction in the sign of Taurus, which stands for comfort and security of the physical and set the overarching theme of physical security and the cost of physical goods throughout the cycle.

The stock market’s low occurred five days previous to the first exact conjunction, ending a five-month bear market that was precipitated by the attack on the United States at Pearl Harbor in December 1941. This attack threatened the U.S. sense of security and brought it into WWII.

At the waxing square, the market rallied during the Korean Conflict (War) as the post-WWII boom was gaining steam. U.S. military involvement in Vietnam occurred during the Saturn/Uranus opposition, when the DJIA stalled just around the 1000 mark, and did not surpass that high for another six years.

On October 8, 1974, Saturn and Uranus were within 9 degrees of their first exact waning square as President Gerald Ford introduced the “Whip Inflation Now (WIN)” campaign as the first effects of inflation’s impact of OPEC’s oil embargo of 1973 that had resulted in a quadrupling of crude oil prices and sent the U.S. economy into a deep recession.

During the exact hits of the waning square, the DJIA struggled, and although the index climbed above 1000 in 1976, it did not surpass the 1973 high of 1067 until a major bull market began in 1982.
