The Galactic Center (March 2001)

I expect a continuation of the severe losses or even a minor stock market crash within the next months, what we've seen until now was just the beginning. This claim is based on numerous astrological, technical, and fundamental reasonings (e.g., Nasdaq PER still ridiculously high). As usual, I pick one interesting perspective and explain it in plain words for laypeople. This time I concentrate on crashs and the Galactic Center.

As you certainly know, our solar system is part of a much larger galaxy, the milky way. Below you see the position of our solar system near the border of the galaxy. From the earth's position the nuclus of the milky way  (Galactic Center of GC) is at 26° 50' Sagittarius.

The Galactic Center is very powerful point for the development of mankind, many magic moments in history took place when the right planet was conjunct (=near) the GC (see link). In astrology, a deviation of about 8° is accepted for the conjunction to be still effective.

To give one example, Dr. Theodor Landscheidt in his book Astrologie: Hoffnung auf eine Wissenschaft? (Astrology, the Hope of The Sciences?, available only in German) demonstrated at a significance level of p<0.001% that celebrities tend to be born with the sun in certain golden angles to the GC. Golden angles are derived by dividing the circle (360°) with the aid of the Golden mean (0.382:0.618=0.618:1).

The two most famous crashs in history were timed by the Galactic Center. On October 28, 1929 Saturn was within one degree of the GC (repeats every 29-30 years), and on October 19, 1987 Uranus was at 24° Sagittarius (every 84 years), hence still in conjunction.

It is no coincidence that Saturn was the trigger in 1929 and Uranus in 1987. Saturn is the planet of durability and strength, symbolizing recession and depression while the nature of Uranus is chaos, transience, and volatility: it took decades to overcome 1929 while 1987 was just a short dip.


From April to June Mars (the red planet) is near the Galactic Center. Generally, this is not so important because this happens roughly every two years. This year, however, is quite different because Mars is stationary-retrograde right on the GC which considerably increases the significance. This is not enough for a crash like 1929 or 1987 but rather for very severe losses or a mini-crash. E.g., on October 27, 1997 the Dow lost 7.2% when Mars was at 21° Sag.
