If we use heliocentric astrology, we can tentatively predict stock market crashes, the first thing, is that usually there is an important aspect between Uranus and Saturn, or between Uranus and another outer planet.
Particularly relevant is when we have a T-square between three outer planets, or an aspect of these outer planets in cardinal cusps or signs. Examples include 1873, 1893, 1907, 1929-1931, 1987 and 2008-2010.
When transiting (heliocentric) Earth, Mars or Mercury aspects the outer planets, namely Uranus or Saturn, a stock market crash is likely to occur (but not 100% of the times!)
- In 12.09.2008 and 06.10.2008 when both heliocentric Earth and Mercury aligned with Saturn-Uranus opposition, we had our recent global economic meltdown
- There was also a significant aspect in the 1987 October crash (Mars square Saturn-Uranus) and also in the panics of 18.09.1873 (Mars opposition Uranus, conjunct Saturn) or 14.10.1907 (Earth squares Uranus-Neptune, Mercury conjunct Uranus, Mars conjunct Saturn).
- In the 1929 crash, the downturn started between in late September, when there were a series of hard aspects from Earth to Saturn, Uranus and Pluto occured, but only a small Mercury square Uranus, and Mercury conjunct to Pluto.
We can now look forward to 23-28 October 2009 when both Mars and Mercury aspect the Saturn-Uranus to see what happens, and form a grand cross with Pluto.
Before that, in 5 October, Mercury also squares Uranus-Saturn. However, it's the late October Mars square that seems very likely to cause a crash, although I am not sure about it.
Nearly all the crashes occur in September or October.
If not, there are still major transits next year, with plenty of important cardinal configurations, similarly to what happened in 1931. In April 1931, there was a grand cross between Earth, Pluto/Jupiter, Uranus and Saturn, when a sustained and major declined occured again.
We will have similar configurations in:
- 23-28 October 2009
- 17-20 December 2009
- 15-22 March 2010
- 3-11 and 23-27 June 2010
- 21-24 September 2010
- 1-20 December 2010
