Review and Preview :

World equity markets did not reverse sharply following the intense geocosmic signatures of November 10-17. Instead, the huge run up since the low attained right in the middle of the recent Mercury retrograde on October 15, simply paused. It went sideways, in a formation known as a "bullish flag". From November 10-20, the DJIA had a range of less than 200 points (about 1.1%), following its 10.6% surge from October 15 through November 10. On Friday, November 21, many indices (including the DJIA) surged once more to a new multi-year or all-time high after ". China's central bank made its first interest rate cut in more than two years and the European Central Bank took action to stimulate the economy", according to CNBC.

There is a lesson in this. Despite the presence of a powerful geocosmic critical reversal zone that correlated with explosive political events and unexpected and surprising central bank decisions, they do not necessarily coincide with sharp reversals in stock markets that are in the early (bullish) phases of their primary cycle. The primary cycle bottomed in mid-October, and the first few weeks of primary cycles are nearly always bullish. This one was no exception. However, when the powerful geocosmic reversal time band unfolded in just the third week of a new primary cycle, it becomes a conflict between the reversal nature of the geocosmic signatures (bearish, in this case) and the bullish phase of the cycle. The result was that the explosive rally stopped, but it did not commence a sharp decline. Prices went sideways.

Best Trades of the Past Week :

This section of the weekly column will resume after the Forecast 2015 Book is completed. I need all the time I can muster to finish this year's book, as we enter the "Post-Cardinal Climax Era". So many possibilities. so many opportunities. .

Short-Term Geocosmics and Longer-Term Thoughts :  

"The vast majority of illegal immigrants are decent people who work hard, support their families, practice their faith, and lead responsible lives". -George Bush, 2006.

"They (illegal immigrants) work hard, often in tough, low-paying jobs. They support their families. They worship at our churches." Barack Obama, 2014, from USA Today, November 21, 2014.

"But process matters to self-government - sometimes it is the only barrier to tyranny."

" I, Barack", Wall Street Journal editorial, November 21, 2014.

The explosive correlation to human activity signified by the planetary pattern of November 10-17 (the orb would last until November 20) did not unfold in a selloff in equity markets. It manifested instead in the realm of geopolitics and central banking. In the USA, Americans are experiencing the possibility of a constitutional crisis shaking the nation with the president's unilateral decree on immigration. It is not that his decree was unfair or lacking in compassion and even sensibility. It was about the motivation of his decision, and its timing, to do it. He could have done this before the election of November 4, or after the new Congress takes office on January 20. Why now, and not before the election or after the new Congress - just voted in the recent election - is seated ? The answer has nothing to do with compassion, fairness, or sensibility. It has nothing to do with the message of the election results. It is a political calculation with risks. According to an analysis in Friday's edition of the Wall Street Journal, one Republican lawmaker argued against allowing anger to overtake the GOP plans : "That would be responding to immaturity with immaturity". As discussed in previous columns this month, the Mercury retrograde cycle in 2015 starts to shift from an air sign emphasis to an air-earth combination. The collective attitude of leaders is likely to shift to a more mature expression, especially after January 21, 2015, the last air-air-air Mercury retrograde combination of the 7-year cycle.

There were other mundane events in the world that erupted during this recent firestorm of geocosmic activity. In the Ukraine, more bloodshed was spilled in its conflict with Russia. Since the ceasefire agreement of early September, 957 people have been killed, or about 13 per day, according to a United Nations report issued Thursday, November 20. In Jerusalem, a Palestinian attack on a synagogue last week killed five people, including a U.S. Rabbi. Each of these are acts that express a darker side of the Uranus/Pluto square, which is now in the last five months of their 33-month and 7-passage series that began in June 2012. Uranus in Aries, and square to Pluto in Capricorn can manifest as both power grabs and senseless, brutal killings and threats to human lives, as if human life is devalued. As stated in these columns before, Mars in Sagittarius-Capricorn is very often a time of danger to lives in the Middle East, especially in Israel. This time was no exception, as Mars is in Capricorn October 26-December 10. Mars in Capricorn was especially highlighted in the past 10 days as it translated the Uranus-Pluto square.

There are other serious long-term planetary signatures. This week finds Saturn starting the balsamic (last 1/8 phase) of its 32-37 year cycle with Pluto. That is, on November 27 it forms the first of three waning semi-squares to Pluto. The last will take place August 13, 2015. This is important, because the last 1/8 of a cycle is when everything represented by that cycle is torn down. The Saturn-Pluto cycle will end on January 12, 2020. It is an extremely important economic cycle, as written in several Forecast Books, and noted by other well-known Mundane Astrologers like Claude Weiss of Zurich, Switzerland. Consider the last balsamic phase of these two planets, which unfolded July 18, 1978 through November 8, 1982. Think about what the world economy was going through then, and what happened to interest rates, inflation, and precious metals prices. Or consider the time before that, which lasted July 22, 1943 through August 11, 1947. These are periods when economies and societies of the world are threatened and even torn down, and then rebuilt.

Yet, it doesn't stop there. Saturn is also in a sesquiquadrate aspect to Uranus December 4, 2014 through October 22, 2015. The sesquiquadrate in this instance is the 5/8 phase of the Saturn-Uranus cycle. It is the first 1/8 phase following the election of Barack Obama as president of the USA, which occurred under the opposition of these two planets in November 2008. The conjunction - beginning of - the cycle took place in the late 1980's, as the Soviet Union broke up and the USA became the sole world superpower. Finally, this all ties into the waxing square of Uranus-Pluto, 2012-2015, whose cycle began with their conjunction during the mid-1960's, at the height of the Civil Rights movement in the USA and Anti-Establishment protests throughout the world. All these themes - and all three cycles - are coming together right now, especially as the final two passages of Uranus and Pluto take place December 15, 2014 through March 16-17, 2015. This is very rare, and in terms of cosmic awareness, very powerful.

It seems that March Madness will be in full bloom this season. It has already begun. Yet I am optimistic. If we can make it through this final chapter of this Cosmic Chainsaw Massacre (and I am certain we can), more mature caregivers of the Earth and her inhabitants can plant the seeds to a new and more sane world, with shoots starting to sprout up even by the middle of next year. It may take until 2020 before we see the actual fruit blossoming, but maturity means having a longer-term approach to what you do, and not just a focus on the next election or news cycle.

Longer-Term Thoughts :


To be continued (next week).

Announcements :

             The two talks I presented at the ISAR 2014 conference last week are now available for purchase in the CD or MP3 format. They include slides from the power point show. These are both very timely talks, with information that should be useful for several months. Each topic is $35.00, plus postage, if ordering via the CD format.

The first talk is titled "America at the Crossroads: Will It Survive, Perish, or Transform ?"  This presentation examines the charts of the United States, its transits and progressions, the USA president, his transits and progressions, and Congress. It explains the transformation taking place in the USA under the 2008-2015 Cardinal Climax, and where the nation is headed, pending choices taking place right now. "America is in trouble. It is in danger of losing its identity, perhaps many of its treasured liberties, based on over 200 years of being the most exceptional experiment in democracy and capitalism the world has ever known".

The second talk now available on CD or MP3 is titled " A Cyclical and Geocosmic Analysis of Gold and the USA Stock Market". Both Gold and the USA stock market make historical tops and lows at rhythmic cyclical points now in force. These major turning points also coincide with long-term planetary aspects. This presentation reviews these studies, their historical correlations to one another, and what they say about the future direction of each market.

             After two years of intensive courses, the Merriman Market Training Academy (MMTA) has finally completed its first 2-year course. A total of 21 students from 10 countries completed over 200 hours of studies covering 99 separate lessons. Twelve of these students have earned the title of "MMTA Apprentice", having also completed serious research projects between each of the seven courses, and passage of seven exams. They are now ready to contribute to the world of financial market timing as analysts, researchers, and traders. Congratulations to every one of you! In the next few years, I believe you will see a new and powerful trend in market analysis take place throughout the trading world. This movement will emphasize the importance of "when". This trend will focus upon giving traders that "extra edge" that only market timing studies can provide.

The MMTA courses are now available for new on-line students! For more information, please visit. The is the first and most powerful course available on the subject of market timing. If knowing "when" to trade is as important to you as knowing at what price to buy and sell, you will not find a more exciting course than this. If you have a desire to become a professional market analyst specializing in market timing forecasting, then this course will be invaluable in that pursuit. Call now (1-248-626-3034) to learn more.

             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.

The cost is $125.00. For ordering on line.

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.
