It is clear that the solar and planetary cycles correspond with trade cycles and shifts in the markets. Studies into sunspots and the planetary cycles show their effect on trade cycles and crop prices has accelerated since 19th century.
It is worth noting that the most successful economic forecaster in the 19th century was Sir William Herschel, who was an astronomer rather than an economist. Herschel observed a relationship between sunspots and crop prices. From a historical perspective, it could be seen that crops were scarcer when there were fewer sunspots, and prices were higher as a result. Similarly, when the number of sunspots increased, crop yields were higher, and the prices decreased. Consequently, he forecasted high and low price periods for crops based on the sunspots between 1798 and 1813.
Afterwards, William Stanley Jevons, a British economist, prepared some statistical data on economic transformations in 1875, and studies into the interaction between sunspot cycles and changes in the economy gained momentum. The retired iron and steel producer Samuel Benner investigated iron, crop, and cotton prices and discovered that the prices changed in 11-year cycles that matched the cycles of Jupiter and sunspots.
H.L. Moore, a professor from Columbia University, reconciled cycles of production with the inferior conjunction when Venus stands at the same heavenly longitude as the Sun and Earth every 8 years. Moore claimed there was a relationship between the cycles of Venus, commercial activities, and sunspots (1923). This was the reason for the same-length cycles in the weather, harvests, and conjunctures. Moore also stated that the Venus cycle was related to the ups and downs of the stock markets.
Louise McWhirter proposed one of the most assertive theories on the comparison of trade cycles with planetary cycles. According to McWhirter, trade volumes and financial trends corresponded with the cycles of the North Node. According to McWhirter, when the North Node was in Leo, trade volumes were at higher levels, and when the North Node was in Aquarius, trade volumes were minimal. When it is located in Capricorn or Sagittarius, trade volume is below average, but it is also inclined to increase. When the North Node transits from Scorpio and Libra, a transition period is experienced with volumes mildly increasing. In Virgo, volumes approach their maximums, and when the North Node arrives at Leo, the volumes maximize. In Cancer and Gemini, volumes stay above average, but they are on a downward trend. Taurus is the transition period, with volumes decreasing after this sign. In Aries, levels drop below average. According to McWhirter, there are other factors in addition to the position of the North Node: the Jupiter–North Node conjunction and the Pluto–North Node soft aspects increase trade volumes, but the North Node’s conjunction with Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, or hard aspects with these planets, suppresses trade. She also stated that the soft aspects between Jupiter–Saturn and Saturn–Uranus increased trade volumes, but a Saturn–Uranus conjunction or incompatible aspects suppressed trade. (Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus are the planets that affect trade cycles. Saturn conjuncts Jupiter every 19.86 years and conjuncts Uranus every 45.36 years.)
Garcia–Mata and Shaffner’s studies between 1934 and 1940 supported the studies of Herschel and Jevons in the belief that there was a relationship between fluctuations in the business world and solar activities and the planets. Many statistics were compiled on economic crises in history and solar maximum and minimum periods.
John H.Nelson, a forecaster of magnetic storms, predicted a magnetic storm in November 12, 1960, a year before it occurred. He made this prediction by observing the interplanetary aspects, so other studies tried to find the correlation between the planetary cycles and the world economy. The aspects of Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus and their cycles showed a correlation of 68% with events in the business world, so a stagnation period was predicted to occur between 1949 and 1950.
Based on 93 years of data, Charles Collins found in 1965 that a major stock market top was due when the average yearly number of sunspots rises over 50. In 1968, Edward Dewey found 43 activities that fluctuated with the Sun’s 11-year cycle, including commodity prices, stock prices, banking activity, business activity, industrial production, and agricultural productivity.
In the 1970s, Thomas Rieder studied statistics on astrological data to see if they affect fluctuations in the stock markets and published a book where he mentioned the importance of sunspots in his predictions. LCdr. David Williams published his book Financial Astrology in 1982, and in some chapters, there were observations about the relationship between sunspots, planetary dynamics, and business-world cycles.
Over the last 80 years, a correlation between the number of sunspots and GDP and the Dow Jones Industrial Average has been observed. The relationship between the number of sunspots and global climate changes also affect physical, social, and economic factors. Both political and economic events are also related to fluctuations in solar energy. Solar activities affect the climate on Earth and consequently the economy.
In the light of the existing studies that investigated the relationship between economic changes and human psychology, scientists then began to wonder if solar activities were also related to the mood of the people. According to Dr. Ellsworth Huntington, the changes in the Sun not only affect the Earth but also people’s health and attitudes. Solar activities cause some disturbances in human health. People’s health affects their state of mind, and their state of mind affects the economic conjuncture. Simone Hutner claims that optimistic or pessimistic responses to sunrays were the reason for solar activities affecting trade. The optimistic periods were the best time to borrow, and during the pessimistic periods, creditors demanded their money back.
According to general opinions, when the number of sunspots increase, the stock markets also grow, and when the number of sunspots decrease, stock markets decline because solar activities affect the mood of the world’s people.
Some researchers claim that economic recessions are experienced after solar maximum periods. From a historical point of view, after solar maximum periods, peaceful periods were experienced. On the other hand, at the brink of a solar maximum, aggressiveness also peaks. People were more hectic, active, and eager to take action. Solar maximum periods were also related to high-inflation periods. Stock exchange levels also peaked during solar maximum periods. Some researchers speculate that if you bought shares during a solar minimum and sold them during a maximum (3–5 years after the solar minimum), you could make a 70% profit.
Financial astrologers who respected sunspots focused on the relationship between the planetary aspects and the number of sunspots. When the planetary aspects were positive and there were fewer sunspots, the effect on the markets was neutral. When the planetary aspects were negative with a high number of sunspots, the effect was again neutral. However, if the planetary aspects were positive and the number of sunspots was high, market values increased. Conversely, if the planetary aspects were negative and there were fewer sunspots, the markets showed a decrease.
Another cycle that is used for forecasting the ups and downs of the trade markets is the Mars–Jupiter cycle. The synodic cycle of these two is 2.2353 years, and it is believed that these cycles coincide with downfalls in the stock markets.
Forecasts for the Near Future
We are clearly in a highly critical period of time. The years from 2012 to 2015 will be more special. In the near future, we will see that some of the cycles that are related with economic shifts will occur consecutively. Let’s examine these cycles individually.
Solar Cycle 24: We completed cycle 23 and entered cycle 24 by early 2008. Researchers who observe the solar cycles claim that Solar Cycle 24 will be the most intense solar maximum for the last 400 years. However, Solar Cycle 24 came later than expected, and there were fewer sunspots than predicted. Some researchers claim that sunspots will disappear after 2012. So, what does that mean? A farewell to sunspots would welcome a mini Ice Age!
Global warming has ended according to a group of British scientists. Research by the British Meteorology Office and University of East Anglia showed that global warming would be replaced with a “mini ice age.” Habibullo Abdussamatov, the president of space research at the Russian St. Petersburg Astronomy Observatory, declared that the mini Ice Age will occur in 2014.
However, NASA researchers have recently realized that there is no clear relationship between the Ice Age and the number of sunspots. The previous Ice Age was affected by the Sun by only 10%, but there were other factors at play: the slope of the Earth, its distance from the Sun, and the state of the Earth’s atmosphere, such as clouds and its magnetic field. The scientists do not understand yet why there was so little sunspot activity during this cycle.
Using the Mayan calculations, Patrick Geryl, author of the book How To Survive 2012, claims this low-activity period is the result of changes in the magnetic fields of the sunspots. According to Geryl, sunspot activity will be lower and the magnetic fields of the sunspots will be so weak that they will shift. This dramatic change will create thousands of sunspots that will cause a huge bang in the Sun.
According to David Hathaway, a solar physician at NASA, the 24th maximum will be experienced around June or July 2012, not in the middle of 2012, and it will be the quietest solar maximum of the last century. The sunspots will look brighter and the magnetic field will weaken, which can indicate a spotless period. The weakening in the magnetic field is also a part of the cycle.
Solar activity is decreasing, the magnetic field is changing, and we are moving toward an ice age. So, what do all these things mean? According to Prof. Dr. Dogan Yasar, global warming periods are fertile years with high productivity. However, during global cooling periods, rains and fertility decrease. As northern Europe is buried under ice, hunger will be experienced due to the decrease in agricultural productivity and wars will begin. This shows that as the number of sunspots decreases, agricultural productivity will also decrease. This will lead to famine and increased prices. Due to famine and hunger, people will migrate from place to place, international turbulences will be seen, and this may lead to wars.
We are also moving toward a period when we will observe hard planetary aspects, especially after Jupiter enters into Cancer in the summer months of 2012. As we experience negative planetary aspects and fewer sunspots, stock exchanges will show a huge decline by the midst of 2013. I personally believe that chaos will be seen in the markets starting at the end of 2012, and a sharp decrease will be observed in 2013 that will continue until the end of 2014.
Two critical factors will directly affect the economy. One of them is military interventions and wars that possibly occur at the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013. The second factor is consecutive natural disasters. Clearly, these two critical factors and climate changes will deeply affect the economy!
The North Node Cycle: One of the most assertive theories on the comparison of trade and planetary cycles was proposed by Louise McWhirter in 1938 as mentioned earlier.
The North Node will enter Scorpio and the South Node will enter Taurus on August 30, 2012, and they will stay in these signs until February 18, 2014. Nodes and solar and lunar eclipses will all take place in Taurus and Scorpio, proving that we need to evaluate our economic structure and regenerate our basic values. When the South Node is in Taurus, we will be the slaves of worldly pleasures and attached to possessions and savings. We have worked hard to get what we have, and we are tired now. We have failed to value spiritual themes, give our thanks for everything we have, and share what we have with others. Until now, we acted individually and built things for ourselves. Now it is time to build things for society, and we need to integrate and share our resources voluntarily. We should meet our own needs without going to the extremes while also taking care of others. We are now at the final stages of capitalism!
The North Node will be in Libra and the South Node will be in Aries between February 18, 2014 and November 12, 2015. This is an indication that we will be in an adjustment and balancing period. According to McWhirter, this is a transition period, and the economy will get better afterwards. This period will end on November 12, 2015, when the North Node enters Virgo.
Jupiter–Uranus and Jupiter–Pluto Cycles: Jupiter, the planet of expansion and welfare, is the most important indicator when understanding the course of financial conditions in mundane astrology. So, we need to look at the sign where Jupiter stands and its aspects. When Jupiter makes hard aspects with the others, economic expansion slows, and a regression can also occur. In June 2012, Jupiter will enter Gemini, which is not a good place for it, and conjunct with the South Node afterwards. This indicates the economy will face troubles by the summer months of 2012.
However, the main turbulences will occur by the second half of 2013. Jupiter exalts in Cancer, which is a good place for it. It normally brings expansion and welfare, but not this time, because Jupiter will have hard aspects with both Uranus and Pluto. Mars will tour through Libra for a while because of its retrograde movement and also make a hard aspect with Jupiter. Under these circumstances, the period between June 2013 and June 2014 promises to be a turbulent one.
Mars–Jupiter Cycle: Mars will tour through Libra between December 7, 2013 and December 26, 2014, and there will be a T-square involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto. Venus will also join them while retrograding in Capricorn. The Nodes will be on the axis of Libra–Aries by that time. The stress in the economy will be felt between the end of 2012 and the end of 2014. To be more specific, the challenges are felt by Jupiter’s entrance into Cancer on June 26, 2013, which will last until June 2014 when Jupiter leaves the Uranus–Pluto T-square. During this period, political disagreements, diplomatic problems, and international disputes may increase. Conservatism and nationalism may also rise while Jupiter stays in Cancer.
In July 2013, the Mars–Jupiter conjunction will make incompatible aspects with Uranus–Pluto. These aspects also indicate stressful periods in the economy. This stress will be more evident during July 20–25. Venus will also trigger these degrees at the end of August 2013, especially between August 24 and 28. A Mars–Jupiter–Uranus–Pluto T-square in December 2013 will be triggered by the Sun and Mercury, and Venus will be retrograding at the same time. The stress will be more evident by the end of December. December 25, 26, and 27 are the outstanding days. This stressful aspect will also be triggered in January 2014. Mars will start its retrograde movement in Libra in February 2014. Consequently, diplomatic problems and turbulences will increase. There is no relief until the end of 2014, when Mars will stay in Libra.
Venus cycle: on June 5-6, 2012, Venus will be inferior of the Sun. After the Venus ingress, Jupiter will enter Gemini and will align with Venus and the South Node. The summer months of 2012 will be stressful for the economy, especially in terms of international trade, transportation, and communication. Gold prices may also increase suddenly.
Just two days before the Venus ingress, there will be a lunar eclipse on June 4, 2012. This will take place in Sagittarius and make a T-square with Mars in Virgo. These hard aspects suggest global turbulence in economics and politics. The markets may experience sudden fluctuations around this date!
On the other hand, artistic creativity will peak after this Venus ingress. Handcrafts may again gain importance. Neptune’s transit in Pisces provides inspiration and creativity. We may see fabulous developments in music, arts, and the film industry.
Transformation in the Economy
Transits and solar and lunar eclipses in 2012 indicate that it will be a tough year. The period between 2012 and 2018 will be a time for total transformation and reorganization. The financial priorities of people in many countries will change. Social, political, and economic reorganization will occur, and new methods will be used.
As I have been highlighting in recent years, we are coming to the end of capitalism, and we will perceive this clearly this year. In addition to the North Node’s transit in Taurus and Scorpio, solar and lunar eclipses in the same signs during 2012 and 2013 show that this is the time to reevaluate the economic structure and make a necessary transformation.
After Saturn moves into Scorpio on October 5, 2012, international trade will be different than it is now. New trade treaties will be signed, new arrangements will be made, and many conventions and summits will be held between many countries. It seems the fluctuations in the business world will not end until the end of 2014. The period between October 5, 2012 and December 23, 2014 will be very critical for the transformation of the economy, because during this period, the banking sector may face many troubles, or the transformation itself may bring stress. Consequently, November–December 2012 and September–October 2013 are the most significant periods. We may see many banks go bankrupt, and trust in the banking sector may decrease.
The period between June 2012 and March 2015 will be the most critical point of the crisis, because the hard aspect between Uranus and Pluto will be more active. The Uranus–Pluto square will again be active for the last time on March 17, 2015, and the solar eclipse on March 20, 2015 will conjunct with the star Scheat. Around this date, turbulence in the economy will be observed, and natural disasters could be more devastating. The transformation will be completed, and a balance of power in the new world will be achieved by the second half of 2016. The North Node will move into Leo as of May 2017, and the upward trend can then begin. Cautious optimism will only be felt at the end of 2017.
The square between Uranus and Pluto will take place seven times between 2012 and 2015, indicating a battle between individuals and the system. Individuals will rebel against the system. Pluto in Capricorn represents the ones who want to dominate money and power, whereas Uranus in Aries indicates those who desire freedom. During this period, the institutions and the countries with debt will be in conflict. Only after the effect of the Uranus–Pluto square decreases will this transformation period be over. In fact, this is also a period of transition, just as the Mayans indicated…
Similarities with 1929
Jupiter, the general indicator of finance, will move in Gemini on June 12, 2012. In classical astrology, Jupiter is debilitated in Gemini because it lacks enough space to expand. This transit indicates that we will experience a highly difficult time in financial matters. During the Great Depression of 1929, Jupiter and the South Node were also in Gemini.
In 1929, Uranus was in Aries, and there was again a square between Uranus and Pluto, as is the case now. Neptune, being in the first degrees of Virgo, will be just at the opposite degree of October 29, 1929, which was known as Black Thursday, in the summer months of 2012. Transiting Saturn will conjunct with the Sun of the Black Thursday chart at the end of November 2012. Mercury, which will be retrograding then in Scorpio and Venus, will also be in the same sign. To summarize, beginning with the summer months of 2012, but especially from November 2012, the sky will have the same scene as it did at the end of 1929!
Europe and America
We do not need astrology to forecast that many European countries will experience economic crises in 2012. Greece, Italy, and Spain are already experiencing issues. The chart of France also shows similar stresses. Germany’s chart also signals some danger, especially in the autumn months of 2012.
In the USA’s chart, the planets located in Cancer will make hard aspects with Pluto and Uranus. The Uranus–Pluto square between 2014 and 2015 will make a harsh aspect with the USA’s Sun. in 2013, Mars will stay in Libra for a long time and trigger a Uranus–Pluto square. This will bring economic, social, and physical difficulties. The USA will be unable to maintain its power. Stress will peak in April 2014, when there are many stressful effects in the USA chart. The USA will not be as powerful as it once was, and economic power will shift from the west to the east.
Milestones in the Economy
Saturn will move into Scorpio on October 5, 2012, and an era of economic restructuring will begin. Trade and treaties will change, and international trade will be very different then. Saturn will transit in Scorpio until December 23, 2014, and this will indicate difficulties in the banking sector and stress in the economy, especially when it conjuncts with the North Node, which is also in Scorpio.
When Saturn in Scorpio moves closer to the debilitated Venus in the same sign, people who spent more on luxurious goods will experience difficulties. November–December 2012 and September–October 2013 are significant months. During these periods, speculation and fraud can disrupt the stock markets.
After the solar eclipse in Scorpio on November 14, 2012, economic transformation will begin. This date could be a milestone for this transformation. Social, political, and economic revisions could be different from any previous ones. Due to fluctuations and changes, the transformation will not end until the end of 2014. Solar and lunar eclipses in the Taurus–Scorpio axis between 2012 and 2014 indicate that we need to evaluate where we are and how to return to basic values. We will learn to feel content with less.
Neptune’s entrance into Pisces in February 2012 tells us that we are at a critical step of our evolutionary process, and we need to be pure and simple. We will understand that everything is so simple, but we will make it complicated. This is chaos itself, and now it is time to be simple.
Neptune’s Entrance into Pisces and the End of the Mayan Calendar
John Major Hopkins—who spent a long time studying Mayan culture, astronomy, and cosmology—states that 2012 is not the collapse of humanity according to the Mayan tradition. In fact, it is a time for transformation and renewal.
According to Jenkins, Mayan traditions vanished after the Spanish invasion, but the core teachings were protected. The Long Count calendar was engraved on stone, and this job was finished 1,000 years ago. This calendar ends on December 21, 2012. The researchers work hard to discover the lost parts of the Mayan calendar. The Mayans believed time had a cyclical pattern. Small cycles followed the big ones, and bigger ones followed the big ones. The end of the biggest cycle is 2012.
According to Jenkins, 2012 was highlighted because of a rare galactic alignment in that year. This is not the end of the calendar, but it is the end of a cycle. A cycle, which is formed of 13 bactuns and lasts 5,000 years, will end and a new cycle will begin. According to the Mayans, the end of the cycles is a time for changing direction or making leaps. They always celebrated the end of the cycles, because these dates are times for transformation and renewal. They made sacrifices on these dates to celebrate their evolution. However, at the end of each new cycle, degeneration is observed, which can only be solved by going back to basic standards of living.
It is interesting that Neptune’s total entrance into Pisces will be seen in 2012, which indicates that we need to sacrifice, give up and leave behind some things, and be simplified. This sacrifice is the key to a spiritual vision covering all religious beliefs.
A Healing Life
The Uranus-Pluto square that will be in effect from 2012 to 2015 indicates that there will be great turbulence in the economy. Especially during the T-square between Mars, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto, crime may increase, mass deaths may increase, and power conflicts may occur. The people may oppose authorities and institutions for material reasons. New arrangements should be compulsory.
This is a transition period that will leave us breathless, and the paradigms will shift. The transition would not be possible to achieve with ordinary people and events, as we have witnessed throughout history. If it was, the paradigms would never change, and no discoveries would be made. The great paradigm shift, which will be experienced between 2012 and 2015, will cover material and scientific standards, economics, life quality, and the standard of private and social relationships.
Saturn’s entrance into Scorpio in October 2012 indicates economic shrinkage and losses. Saturn will stay in this sign until the end of 2014, which coincides with the Uranus–Pluto square. The Nodes will shift to the Taurus–Scorpio axis, showing that economies will face a difficult period. The North Node will move forward in Scorpio until February 2012, and this will strengthen Saturn’s restrictive side. The stock markets and the banks will experience a critical period. Financial problems could also be seen between business partners and spouses.
In the period when the Uranus–Pluto square is so effective, the Saturn–Neptune trine in the water signs will bring us the strength and power for transformation and courage after a period of possible crises and tragedies. This highly compatible aspect will take place at just the right time, because it will lessen the stress of the hard aspect between Uranus and Pluto.
Purification and Refinement Experiences
The best benefit of the Saturn–Neptune trine is that it will help us to be more mature (Saturn) spiritually (Neptune), as if the spirits will be forced to learn their lessons. This period will help us go beyond our limits. We will not be afraid of losing control, but rather we will transcend. If we volunteer for this, our spiritual awareness (Neptune) will increase with the help of our experiences (Saturn).
Fate will leave us free to learn the lessons (Saturn) of nonalignment (Neptune). We will easily carry the responsibility for our dreams. The Saturn–Neptune trine will support us in shaping (Saturn) the spiritual world and our ideals.
It will help our dreams (Neptune) to become visible and our ideals (Neptune) to take shape (Saturn). Neptune symbolizes the collective unconscious, and Saturn represents the materialization of ideals. Neptune is the indicator of the imaginary world, whereas Saturn represents the perception of reality. The compatible aspects between these two help us to increase our potential to make our dreams come true. To realize our dreams, we need to make some sacrifices, and we need to rid ourselves of unnecessary things in our lives and become simpler.
This compatible aspect is also related to serving others idealistically without the interruption of the ego. It will give us the chance to realize our ideals and combine our materialistic and spiritual parts harmoniously.
The Grand Trine in the Water Signs
Saturn and Neptune, which support each other within a trine aspect from the water signs, will also dance with Jupiter by the second half of 2013. Jupiter’s support to these two planets through their most benefic aspect indicates that a comfortable period for the evolution of humanity will begin. The Grand Trine formed by these three planets, which tours the water signs, will give us the necessary support and initiative to heal our lives and realize our dreams.
In astrology, trine aspects indicate a potential for energies to harmoniously flow between the planets. The advantages will be grasped easily, and this will bring spontaneous chances. Harmony and balance will be maintained easily. In this Grand Trine, there are three trine aspects, which means the harmony and the balance that this Grand Trine brings will be tripled!
This Grand Trine in water elements will ease the smooth flow of emotions and the building of empathy with others. We will begin to feel and perceive things that we did not before. We will realize that abstract elements play a very important role in our lives, and we will also understand the power of our subconscious minds. The more we are aware of life’s depth, the more creative we will be.
Because we will be more sensitive during this period, unless we control our emotional reactions, we could demonstrate inconsistent moods. We will be aware of the storms taking us to the bottom, and we will be able to transform the crisis into power during Saturn’s transit into Scorpio between October 5, 2012 and December 23, 2014. We can easily reach inner happiness and balance if we use Saturn properly and volunteer to face our real drives.
Neptune—touring in Pisces, which is the most evolved water sign—is an idealist that volunteers to help the less fortunate. Jupiter, the Great Benefic, will also begin touring in Cancer, which symbolizes mercy, empathy, and solidarity. In addition, Saturn will enter Scorpio—which represents depths, intuitions, and strength—and it will heal humanity and help the transformation. The cooperation of these three planets will help our planet to heal and redefine itself through the transformation, giving us the chance to make the necessary philosophical changes.
The Grand Trine between Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune will be most beneficial during July 9–27, 2013, bringing us extra good luck. Spiritual developments will also be more evident.
Spiritual Healer + Spiritual Teacher
Chiron (spiritual healer) and Neptune (spiritual teacher) will be touring in Pisces. The Great Transformer Pluto will make a sextile aspect with Chiron between 2012 and 2014, helping the spiritual transformation. At the same time, Saturn (The Great Teacher) will also make a sextile with Chiron. This aspect will heal spiritual wounds and support our individual transformations. All acting like guides, Neptune, Chiron, and Saturn will help us from the water signs, which is not so surprising! Chinese philosophy regards water as the master of knowledge. Water combines knowledge and embeds it in our memories.
Neptune in Pisces will be powerful in its ruling sign and supported by Chiron, which also tours in the same sign. This will help humanity to understand that everything comes from a single divine source.
It can be confirmed that all religions and divine knowledge stem from the same source, so people can shake off polarized opinions, and the trend towards “Divine Unity” can accelerate. Freedom will be achieved because of the power of spiritual energies: it will be well understood that religions are only tools, not the target itself. There is a general rule in astrology: The effect of a powerful planet suppresses the power of a less powerful one. So, Neptune’s powerful position can create a radical shift in the collective consciousness. Ordinary realities can stumble, and people can reach the “real reality.”
Neptune’s good aspect with Pluto between 2012 and 2015 also supports this scenario. With a wide tolerance, this positive aspect will affect us until 2023 and help us make the necessary transformations and establish new structures. As emphasized before, Neptune will also have a positive aspect with Saturn between 2012 and 2014. With the help of this aspect, we can realize our ideals because we will be more aware of the realities; we know our limits and don’t feel uncomfortable with them. We can have the patience and understanding for the possibilities. We can be more tolerant, and we can balance realities. This positive aspect will help us to use our spiritual capacity and beliefs in a balanced and constructive way.
It is clear that the solar and planetary cycles correspond with trade cycles and shifts in the markets. Studies into sunspots and the planetary cycles show their effect on trade cycles and crop prices has accelerated since 19th century.
