Mars revolves around the Sun once in 1.88 earth years.
Mars moves 360 ÷ 1.88 = 191.490 in 1 years.
The synodic period between Earth and Mars = 360 ÷ (360 - 191.49) = 2.136 years.
A little over 2 years & 2 months, Earth and Mars move to the Opposite sides of the Sun, and then repeat. This is Mars Combustion Cycle of 2 years & 2 months.
During exact Mars Combustion, Mars and Earth are separated by the Sun posited right between these 2 planets. As viewed from Earth, an observer cannot see Mars with naked eyes, and positive Mars influence is diminished (or obstructed) so that investors on Earth cannot benefit from positive Mars influence.
The duration of Earth investors being deprived (wholly or partially) of bullish Mars influence is:
Commencing 6 weeks before exactitude
Ending 4 weeks after exactitude.
The 10 week period (of a weak Mars) is arbitrary because bullish (or bearish) background can alter the duration. Quite often, Mars Combustion passes unnoticed because of an invigorated Mars &/or a strongly stimulated bullish Saturn.
We mention (2 days ago) a weak Mars for BEAR #2 WAR SCENARIOS.
Here are the relevant Charts for 2017:
Exact Mars Combustion is 27 July 2017. The 10-week duration of a weak Mars is:
Mid June 2017 – 3rd week Aug 2017.
The consequence of having a weak Mars can be detrimental to the stock market. We have described a War Scenario (BEAR #2) for June & July 2017. Mars Combustion occurs during this period.
There are 2 planets to counteract the negative force of the War Scenario. The bullish planets are Saturn and Mars.
Saturn is useless (we’ve explained) because Saturn functions to heavily agitate bearish Jup FT of [Saturn Conjunction Jup FT].
Mars is being combusted, and Mars is powerless to erase any bearish influence of the War Scenario.
Refer to the Mars-centered Ephemeris above.
The last bullish Mars aspect is: 29 May 2017 [Saturn Opposition Mars].
By early June 2017, [Saturn Opposition Mars] is disintegrating quickly. Both Saturn and Mars are fast weakening (they are losing their bullish influences).
Therefore, investors are deprived of the rising influence of Saturn and Mars, and the very bearish War Scenario wreaks havoc without constraint on the stock market in June & July 2017.
Here’s another Mars Combustion (in the past):
The Charts have application in our discussion a few days later for:
BEAR #4 (83 Year Cycle)
