After running the calculation for this week's newsletter, it appears there will some form of resolution that will cause the markets to rally. Here is my reasoning: Last week's Sun, Moon, Uranus and Pluto compound aspect was one of the worst, if not the worst astrological influences for the year. The market took a nose dive. The influence started on the 19th. It reached its peak on the 28th. It influence will now start to dissipate. That does not mean things will get better. It is still a negative aspect, and its influence is still with us into next week. However, aspects for next week are all positive, so the remnants of the Moon, Sun, Uranus and Pluto aspect should be overshadowed by the positive aspects coming due. I know there are highly respected political analyze who are saying B.O. wants us to go over the cliff. It would be like winning the exacted for him. But he can only pull this off if he can successfully blame the Republicans. A recent poll release today shows 44% of the population blames the Republicans for this mess, and 36% blame the Democrats. Those are not enough chips on his side of the table to pull this off. We go over the cliff, he goes with us. Expect some form of concession from the democrats. On a personal note, I am saddened that our elected officials have been criticized so harshly in the past few weeks. THIS IS THE WAY OUR GOVERNMENT WORKS! There are plenty of scum bags among the men and women we have elected to represent us. I think anyone with the ability for rational thinking knows who they are. But let's face it, most are honestly trying to do their jobs. It is not the elected officials that need to be changed; it is the rules by which our government functions that needs repair. Live up to your responsibilities as a citizen. Get involved. Do your part. And for those of you who don't know, yes, you have responsibilities, and a lot more responsibilities than entitlements. The founding fathers gave us the people the right to govern ourselves. If we are remiss in our duties, the government will fill the void as they have done so well in the past 2 decades. I wish you are a happy new year, but remind you of what I have been saying about 2013 - 2015: It will be the worst period many of us will ever live through. The picture is very dark.
