Review and Preview :

It is the holiday season, and there is much for which to be grateful. As Mundane and Financial Astrologers, one thing that we may be grateful for is that the end of the Uranus/Pluto waxing square is in sight, which will also end the main body of the 7-year Cardinal Climax - and we survived it. Not only are we survivors, but the process has sharpened our awareness, deepened our understanding of the connection between the cosmos and human activity, and for many if our world leaders, it has led to a greater collective wisdom and maturity. For me personally, I saw it as my role to guide readers through this period from my unique perspective as an astrologer. I have attempted to convey both a realistic and positive outlook on the realities and possibilities through the major part of this period, and in the last few months, to alert you to the more dangerous potentials inherent in this once-in-a-lifetime cosmic drama, now that we can see the end shortly ahead. That was my self-appointed role over the past seven years : to be your geocosmic guide through a period of great personal, collective, and cosmic turbulence. I hope I have succeeded in this role, and look forward to guiding you through the next challenges via this unique study as well.

One thing that we have learned (in a manner never quite experienced before) is that the economy, world politics, and financial markets all operate on different planes. There is a connection, but it is not as close as we thought (as many thought). We knew that markets climbed "Walls of Worry", but we didn't know it could climb that wall for six consecutive years. Maybe it was not a wall at all. Maybe it was a street - a powerful street, known as "Wall Street", which has its tentacles closely intertwined with the political and banking establishment. A close examination of the USA 2015 budget recently passed suggests as much, as clearly scorned by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. She is rapidly becoming the most vocal advocate of the "common man", the middle class, which has been so decimated by the government-banking-business policies and behaviors enacted during the 7-year Cardinal Climax.

So we look at last week, the very beginning stage of this last Uranus/Pluto passage that will end March 16, and we see more disturbing reminders that this cosmic duo is still very active and powerful. Seventeen hostages were taken in Sydney, Australia, which ended with three deaths ; 142 school children, teachers and staff murdered by the Taliban in Pakistan ; and the North Korean threat of violent attacks against any movie theatre that will run Sony's "The Interview", due to open on Christmas Day. They forced Sony to pull the picture form its scheduled release, which is another form of hostage taking. These are all expressions of Uranus square Pluto, whipping up a frenzy of violence - and threats of violence - from extremists, whose major commodity they bring to the world stage is fear. Pluto in Capricorn is about fear, torture, and threats (or acts) of violence. It is also about reform and getting rid of those that create fear, torture, and threaten violence. Think of it as the Feds versus the Al Capones of the 1920's.

But we also witnessed President Obama's ending of the embargoes against Cuba. Once again, he seems to understand what many Americans want - they want to trade, they want to open doors, and get away from isolationism behavior. But his means of attaining these changes continues to be polarizing. Instead of bringing Americans together, his unilateral decisions that affect so many people undermines the purpose of a democratic and representative government - not that such a thing really exists, but like religion, people want to believe it exists.

In terms of market behavior, stock indices woke up abruptly from their panic mode of last week and reversed from bearish to bullish, just like that - just like Uranus, just like we forecasted could happen. It can go back and forth like this, with large, wild swings from euphoria to panic, all the way through December and into early January. And then it returns in February-March. And then a new day, a new dawn for humanity, begins. I look forward to see how this affects markets and their traditional, classical, cycles. Maybe they return too.

Best Trades of the Past Week :

On the weekly program, aggressive traders of Crude Oil traders were advised : " Look to buy if prices enter support (53.71-54.97) and then closer back above it, even during the week, with a stop-loss on a close below the low that preceded that bullish trigger". The low was 53.60 and the weekly close was 56.52.

The best trade of the week in the daily program was in stocks. Monday's daily report for the Dow Jones Industrial Average advised",Position traders are flat and you may buy if prices drop into support or lower (17,126-17,177). you may go long on a close back above". The low that day was 17,115, and the close that day was 17,180, so it was elected. Friday's close was 17,804.

Short-Term Geocosmics and Longer-Term Thoughts :  

"Yet, 2014 has been a year of U-turns, which can be challenging for market timers. The NASDAQ has pulled back five times, with declines in the 4% to 10% range. Advances that followed each of those pullbacks resulted in gains in the 6% to 11% range, until the nearly 17% run from mid-October to late November". - International Business Daily, December 18, 2014.

U-turns, as in "Uranus turns", says reader C. Post, who sent us this article. Don't be surprised to see another wild reversal start between now and January 5, maybe two.

This weekend features Venus conjunct Pluto and square Uranus on December 20, followed by Uranus changing from retrograde to direct motion on December 21. The Uranus/Pluto square gets another blast of fire energy from the Sun on January 3, when it conjuncts Pluto and squares Uranus. It may be a holiday season, but the cosmos is far from peaceful and quiet, which means we - as humanity - are also restless and still subject to individual outbreaks of madness. We are still vulnerable to threats from those who have lost their connection with others, to those who have lost (or never had) a sense of value to life.

Yet this perverted phenomenon of violence associated with religious beliefs is about to take a turn. Saturn - the planet of accountability and responsibility - is going to start a three-year passage through Sagittarius this week. Sagittarius rules religion and philosophy. It is also the sign of extremism, but Saturn brings consequences (oftentimes punitive) to those who act out their extremist beliefs. Leaders in the religious and/or academic community are likely to start voicing their disassociation from those who use those religious teachings as a basis for exhibiting violence against their brothers and sisters. Neptune in Pisces (through 2024) wants "peace on earth". Saturn in Sagittarius is about to be vocal and active in condemning those who violate this universal value. The result will likely be the end of ISIS and many other terrorist groups that have gone to extremes in their cruelty to other living beings over the past 14 years. The most threatening part of Uranus/Pluto is coming to an end. It won't end overnight, but the end is beginning. And once we finish this violent episode, the renaissance that began in the last 1980's and early 1990's will resume. It may take 3-9 years, but I believe this is the message of the stars, which is simply a system the Creator gave us to understand ourselves, our world, and the cosmos we live in.

Have a very happy holiday season !.

             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. It identifies all the key Sun-Moon combinations that have a higher (and lower) than expected probability of correlating with 4% or greater reversals in COMEX Silver. It also identifiesBig Range Days - those days in which the range of Silver is most likely to be 3.5% or more of the price of Silver, which is a great tool for day traders. This book fulfills the dream of all traders : high probability winning trade possibilities, with minimal market exposure. It is thatextra edge. And Silver is a great market to trade now. 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.
