Review and Preview :

The U.S. stock market continues to appreciate following its primary cycle trough of August 7. Gold had rallied nicely from its half-primary cycle low of August 1 at 1281 to the 1320-1325 area, August 8-14. But then it fell hard early on the morning of August 15 (Friday), down to a low of 1293 as this is being written. However, new reports of turmoil on the Russian-Ukraine border on Friday morning (10:30 AM Eastern Time), by Maxim Shemeto of Reuters, stated "Ukraine artillery destroyed a 'significant' part of a Russian armored column that crossed into Ukraine during the night... the announcement rattled global markets". Stocks, which had opened higher, started to fall and Gold soared back above 1310.

The problem in this digital age of instant information is, of course, getting accurate information. With Pluto in Capricorn, the tendency seems to be for governments around the world to control the information that gets reported, and at times, to manipulate that information in a way that influences what actually gets reported. So, the quest for truth versus hype is a greater challenge than ever for all people of the world. As Uranus in Aries continues its 33-month waxing square aspect to Pluto (June 2012-March 2015), it is also a time of revelations, when truths come out that had been hidden or altered. You see, Uranus seeks the truth and wants revelation, but Pluto in Capricorn seeks to hide that which threatens its power and control. Uranus pertains to the masses, as in "mass movements", which usually want freedom, independence, and basic human rights. Pluto in Capricorn can represent repressive governments or powerful government leaders who want anything but the masses gaining freedom and independence. So we are in the midst of an epic world-wide power struggle between truth and the manipulation of truth (and even financial markets) as it is reported. Those who control the information believe they are in control of . everything, and perhaps they are.

But back to the markets. Silver did not perform nearly as well as Gold, as it fell to a new two-month low last week, testing 1951 early Friday. Crude Oil, on the other hand, fell to 95.32 last week, its lowest level since late January. It stormed back to test 97.00 on the news of the Ukraine-Russian conflict late Friday morning.

Short-Term Geocosmics :  

It's funny, isn't it? Last week we talked about the approaching Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Leo as a developing "love bliss", directly affecting Barack Obama, a Leo sun sign. Hillary Clinton had just made a harsh critique of the President's foreign policy regarding the rise of Islamic militants, as other "leadership issues". But by the end of the week, as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction approaches, she changed her tune and said she would meet with Obama on Martha's Vineyard and "Hug it out". You have to love that Venus-Jupiter combination. It peaks August 18-19. So collect as many hugs and as much love as you can right now, because the dynamic will begin switching quickly to the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio on August 25, and that is anything but a love fest. Hugs can turn to fisticuffs in a blink of an eye.

There are actually two major aspects arising at the end of August : Mars conjunct Saturn on August 25, and the Sun in opposition to Neptune on August 29. These are both powerful Level One geocosmic signatures related to major reversals in U.S. stocks (and probably all world stock indices, as well as other financial markets, like Gold and Silver).

Let's consider, for a moment, a concept introduced in this column a few months ago, regarding conjunctions and oppositions. That is, in conjunctions, it is the faster moving planet that dominates the collective psychology and world events. In oppositions, it is the slower moving planet that is dominant. Thus, the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Scorpio on August 25 is more likely to find Mars dominate, which means wars and conflicts. The Russian-Ukraine (as well as USA and Western Europe) turmoil is likely to get more intense, not less, especially after the Venus-Jupiter conjunction (which highlights Venus, as the faster moving planet) passes early next week.

By the end of that week, the Sun will be in opposition to Neptune. Thus, the slower moving planet - Neptune - becomes more dominate. This planet is even more of a challenge to get "the truth" than Pluto, for Neptune can be passive and evasive, and even worse, it can intentionally mislead and omit important pieces of information necessary for others to make proper decisions. Feelings of "betrayal", "mistrust", and "sabotage" are often complaints from those who are victimized. It can be a time of great embarrassment, even scandal, particularly to those who have planets located in a T-square aspect to the Sun-Neptune opposition. In this case, the Sun-Neptune opposition takes place in 6 degrees of Virgo-Pisces. Therefore, those people (especially world leaders) with planets at or near 6 degrees of Gemini or Sagittarius, are most vulnerable to these dynamics. Mr. Obama, for instance, has his natal Moon at 3 degrees of Gemini, square his natal Pluto at 6 degrees Virgo. He may be affected by these feelings and behaviors.

For now, however, it is a good time for marriage, attraction, and social activities. Let's all take Hillary Clinton's lead on this and "hug it out" with those we love, but with whom we have had disagreements with lately.

Longer-Term Thoughts :

will return in September, after the completion of the MMTA Academy courses.

To be continued (next week).

             I am oftentimes asked for recommendations of a money manager who uses my methods, since I won't manage other people's money. The thing is, almost all money managers I know use their own systems. But many subscribe to my services and share my thoughts about the future of the economy, various financial markets, and how to position one's portfolio along these lines. One money manager who subscribes to our services that I would suggest for those looking to structure a longer-term portfolio, such as a retirement account, is Duke O'Neill of Boulder, Colorado. He can be reached at, or 1-(303) 545-5837. For those looking for a professional trader of commodity and futures contract might consider Ted Lee Fisher at Ted is a legend in financial futures and has a seat on the CME. Both are very knowledgeable of the tools I use, of the way I am looking at markets, and yet each makes their own decisions as to exactly when to enter and exit any market. They will be more than happy to assist you.

             To the above list, I would also like to recommend long-term MMA subscriber Erwin Brunner of Zurich, Switzerland. Mr. Brunner is the founder of BrunnerInvest AG. One of his five funds was awarded theBest in-house fund of funds in the world recently. Mr. Brunner is a former director of the Swiss Banking Corporation (today it is known as UBS), and a general director of Rothschild Bank in Zurich. As an independent wealth manager for high net worth individuals and institutional clients only, he places his clients into the funds of the best performing fund managers in the world, via his own research and experience. For high net worth readers interested in Mr. Brunner's funds, please contact him through

             The newly revised The Sun, The Moon, and Silver Book : Secrets of a Silver Trader, is now out. This is a book that you will use as a reference guide for...many, many years.

Disclaimer and statement of purpose : The purpose of this column is not to predict the future movement of various financial markets. However, that is the purpose of the MMA (Merriman Market Analyst) subscription services. This column is not a subscription service. It is a free service, except in those cases where a fee may be assessed to cover the cost of translating this column from English into a non-English language. This weekly report is written with the intent to educate the reader on the relationship between astrological factors and collective human activities as they are happening. In this regard, this report will oftentimes report what happened in various stock and financial markets throughout the world in the past week, and discuss that movement in light of the geocosmic signatures that were in effect. It will then identify the geocosmic factors that will be in effect in the next week, or even month, or even years, and the author’s understanding of how these signatures will likely affect human activity in the times to come. The author (Merriman) will do this from a perspective of a cycle’s analyst looking at the military, political, economic, and even financial markets of the world. It is possible that some forecasts will be made based on these factors. However, the primary goal is to both educate and alert the reader as to the psychological climate we are in, from an astrological perspective. The hope is that it will help the reader understand these psychological dynamics that underlie (or coincide with) the news events and hence financial markets of the day.

No guarantee as to the accuracy of this report is being made here. Any decisions in financial markets are solely the responsibility of the reader, and neither the author nor the publishers assume any responsibility at all for those individual decisions. Reader should understand that futures and options trading are considered high risk.
