We are running into a dilemma, as explained on Solar Chart 2015-08-04
The bearish (negative) feature is the powerful [Neptune Grand Opposition Jupiter] which is now off exact aspect by 6.1/20. The aspect is increasing in potency steadily (though slowly) as the aspect deviation orb is becoming smaller.
The bullish (positive) features are made up of 2 heliocentric aspects (bullish Mars appears in both aspects):
04 Aug 2015 [
Uranus]. Square = 900.
06 Aug 2016 [Saturn Sesquare Mars]. Sesquare = 1350.
With negative and positive influences present at the same time, what can we make out of the situation?
We examine the planetary arrangements to see which feature is more active. The active feature will rule the market.
We observe from the Jupiter-centered Color Ephemeris that on 03 Aug 2015 faster (negative) Jupiter is rushing towards Saturn and hits (positive) Saturn through an exact angle of 900 (a SQUARE). Both (positive) Saturn and (negative) Jupiter are agitated because of the [Saturn Square fast Jupiter] interaction. As opposing influences are present and they are about equally strong, we are in the dilemma – the observation does not tell us whether stocks will go up and come down in the first week of Aug 2015.
I do not pretend to know all. In a situation like this, I have no idea of market directions.
But there is one thing certain – Mars of the bullish features will disintegrate soon. Mars moves 1/20 a day, and in 1 week Mars will move away from the bullish aspects by 3-4 degree – Mars will no longer interact positively with Uranus and Saturn. Abatement of positive Mars influence will mean loss of positive backing for the stock market.
 For the week commencing Mon 3 Aug 2015, there are confusing signals and no forecast is made.
 For the week commencing Mon 10 Aug 2015, positive Mars influence will disappear, and stocks will fall significantly.
In the next post, we’ll discuss an extremely bearish scenario creating monumental declines.
