The 94% rise in Gold from end Nov 1973 to end Feb 1974 is the product of:
[i] A strong Mars and a strong Saturn (particularly a strong Mars), and
[ii] Insulation of Earth investors from deflationary influence of Jupiter.
A strong Mars is revealed on the Mars-centered Ephemeris (which delineates geocentric positions of the planets).
In early Dec 1973, Mars (in retrograde motion) is in Opposition to Uranus.
[Mars(R) Opposition Uranus] is energized as the planets are heavily stressed by Venus and Earth:
On Sun 02 Dec 1973
@07:23 [Mars(R) Square Venus] “R” indicates a backward moving planet.
@22:37 [Mars(R) Sesquare Sun]
Inflationary Mars is made restless by the joint actions of Venus and Sun.
Now study Solar Chart 1973-12-02 for bird’s eye view of the planets in the Solar System. A line is drawn between restless Mars and Sun. This is a Positive Partition (positive because it involves an active inflationary Mars).
On Solar Chart 1973-12-23 a line can be drawn to link up Mercury, Sun, Venus and Mars. This is a Positive Partition [Partition #1] to fend off deflationary Jupiter influence (Jupiter is on RIGHT hand side of the Partition) from reaching Earth investors (Earth is on LEFT of the Partition).
[Saturn Conjunction Earth] is exact on 23 Dec 1973. After this date, faster Earth will move to the LEFT of Saturn. A line can be drawn from Saturn to Sun to form another Positive Partition [Partition #2]. This Partition is positive because Saturn is a positive planet.
Therefore Earth from end Dec 1973 is shielded from deflationary Jupiter by two (2) Positive Partitions.
Inflationary influence prevails on Solar Chart 1974-01-03.
On Solar Chart 1974-02-17 the aspect [Saturn Conjunction Mars] is a powerful Positive Partition. It is powerful because 2 inflationary planets (Saturn and Mars) join hands to segregate deflationary influence of Jupiter from reaching Earth investors.
In addition, from the Mars-centered Ephemeris (above), we see Jupiter is “combusted” by Sun:
Wed 13 Feb 1974 [Jupiter Conjunction Sun].
During Jupiter Combustion (10 days before and 10 days after exact Conjunction), investors on Earth cannot see Jupiter with naked eyes. Investors on Earth are well protected from the deflationary influence of Jupiter because the Sun’s glare covers up Jupiter. Sun’s glare functions as a Partition.
Not a scintilla of deflationary Jupiter influence reaches Earth investors, while at the same time Earth receives readily the inflationary influence of Mars, Saturn and Pluto.
Gold soars, reaching a peak on 26 Feb 1974.
After Jupiter Combustion, Jupiter is again visible to viewers on Earth (visible again from end Feb 1974). Earth investors are once again exposed to the deflationary Jupiter influence. The “partitions” (including Sun’s glare) mentioned earlier no longer work to fend off Jupiter. Commodity prices will fall back.
Here is a long term Gold Chart for the 2 periods we’ve discussed.
During World War I, US was on Gold Standard. Gold was fixed at US$20.67 per ounce.
We’ve developed a reliable methodology to predict future high inflations. An inflationary period will emerge. We’ll study this period in great details. It presents excellent investment opportunities in the commodity markets. A forecast will be published on this blog in due course.
