So when does the real recovery begin? According to long-range astrological forecasters, it should start in 2004 and get going properly in 2005. The next ‘peak of prosperity’ is in 2008 or 2009.

Reader Anthony Carvell wrote to ask for investment advice. It seems that quite a few of you are interested in matching planetary movements to the stock markets. Most of the work in this field is done by American astrologers, but there are a handful of British astrologers who work with the City as well. The most popular theories involve Mars. When Mars opposes Jupiter, as it did yesterday, it tends to send the market downwards, or so the research suggests. In a few days Mars will also conjoin Neptune, which is similarly bad news. And just for good measure, Mars opposes Jupiter twice more this year, in September and in November, so it seems like a series of downward steps, doesn’t it?

Mars is also in reverse for much of the summer, which is yet another factor noted for sending markets downwards. The peak of the market, if that’s the right word, should be in late July, and the bottom around September 20, after which it should pick up a little, though it will stumble again in November. A few weeks ago I noted that Uranus in Pisces, as it is now, had in the past been matched by financial depressions. For the last few months of this year, Uranus will sneak back into Aquarius, just to have a last look round. A time for a little surge in the markets? Possibly, but beware that November wobble. Quit while you’re ahead.
