The Deep Dive (Reposted with Clarificatory Notes)

Some readers of the article I’m reposting below have misinterpreted my claim that around now “it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor” to mean that Trump would have smooth sailing in March. So, I’m reposting this article (posted less than 24 hours ago) and including some quoted text from my January article for clarification (I’m also going to add notes about Pluto and about the week of April 22, which I omitted last night as well).

In my last post, I made it clear that Trump wouldn’t have smooth sailing in March. Rather, I said, “Trump will have so much more to respond to and answer for in February and March.” This was primarily due to Saturn’s first square to Trump’s Jupiter (his dasha lord), which peaks on  around March 9.

I then added all of the following:

“A Saturn aspect to anyone’s planetary period lord will bring that person down to earth and face-to-face with reality. But in the case of Trump, who is astrologically predisposed to operate with little regard for reality (as I described in the article, “Trump and the Astrology of Alternate Realities”), being brought ‘down to earth’ will feel like a crash landing and coming ‘face-to-face’ with reality will feel like getting hit in the face by reality.  This is especially true because Mars, by transit, will also increasingly be afflicting Trump in March (particularly in the second half of March, but see my note below about Trump’s protection from Jupiter this spring)…

“Trump does have an extended period of protection/grace from Jupiter’s aspects to his Sun and Moon, from February-May of this year, which I believe will enable him to evade the clutches of political destruction until about June (note the parallel to Mueller’s Ketu subperiod issues described below). But by then, I think that the accumulation of evidence against Trump–finally compounded by the snowballing negative effects of economic, social, and geopolitical challenges to the country that Trump clearly cannot manage–will trigger a wave of Republicans breaking ranks with Trump for the sake of the nation.

“Trump’s last moment of Jupiternian protection this year happens in late October and early November—just before his final Saturn square in late November and early December… So, I think that Jupiter transit is more likely to mirror Nixon’s Jupiternian protection of 1973, which protected Nixon from criminal prosecution but didn’t save him from having to leave office (for more detail, see my article, “Trump in Nixon’s Footsteps” from January 2018). Trump would only resign with a pardon from Pence in his pocket, so I expect that’s how his Jupiternian protection will play out.”


What I thought about saying in last night’s article, but omitted in my haste to publish before bedtime, was that the first instance of this same Jupiter transit over Trump’s Moon and opposite his Sun (happening this whole spring, but especially over the next month, starting right now), is likely to be when Trump will begin talks in earnest with Mike Pence about a pardon deal, in case future events necessitate Trump’s resignation. Here, the idea is that the foundation for the pardon is laid now, in the first instance of the Jupiter transit, and the pardon is then finalized and consecrated (not yet granted, though, until after Trump resigns) in October/November, during the second instance. This is another example of consecutive instances of the same astrology building upon each other (as with Robert Mueller’s three astrological peaks this year, mentioned below).

In last night’s article, I was trying to indicate that the other boosting and protective effects of Trump’s Jupiter transits the spring would be: 1) to provide Trump with an apparent outcome that he could tout from his current summit with Kim Jong-un, and 2) to provide Trump with a favorable wind that would temporarily shield him from the damaging substance of whatever move Robert Mueller was/is about to make. After watching some of Michael Cohen’s testimony today, it seemed to me that Mueller could actually take credit for some of the damning content of Cohen’s testimony, given that Mueller didn’t have to allow Michael Cohen to speak about the ongoing Roger Stone case. But, Mueller allowed Cohen to say that Roger Stone told Trump in advance about the WikiLeaks against Hillary Clinton—which is something that Trump is reported (including by Roger Stone himself on Fox News) to have denied in sworn written testimony to Mueller back in November (during that giant week of Mueller’s around Thanksgiving that I wrote about in my September and November articles).

In my prior article, from January 19, I also said, “Mueller will face strong threats to stifle and conceal his work,” and “Mueller will surely face strong efforts to marginalize and sideline him until the Ketu subperiod finishes” (which I now believe happens sometime in April).

Hopefully, given all that I’ve said above, readers won’t feel inclined to misinterpret the phrase “it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor” as they continue reading this article. All I meant to say is that, in the midst of his first of three “peaks of accountability” that I’ve mentioned several times in the last few months, Trump will seem to be evading the clutches of doom. But, this should actually make sense, given that there are three peaks of accountability, and not just one. If he didn’t seem to evade the clutches of doom in the first peak, Trump probably wouldn’t then face a second and third peak of accountability.


Here, now, is last night’s article (including my attempt to build-in a clarificatory note from this morning):


The Deep Dive

Unlike my most recent articles, this post will be pretty brief. In essence, I want to sketch a projected outline for the stock market dive that I think is imminent. For lack of time, I will just post a simple timeline, but that should be enough to convey the important points. I also want to cover Robert Mueller’s imminent big move and how it relates to the deep dive into the Trump case that Mueller will be making throughout this year.


Comment added Feb. 27:

For any who might wonder, in light of Michael Cohen’s testimony today, this article is meant to supplement my January article, not supersede it. That is, I published “The Deep Dive” just to contextualize Robert Mueller’s next move and to give ample warning about the stock market perils this spring. I’m just not sure if I’ll have any time in March to publish another piece, so I wanted to get one out last night while I had the chance. This new article is not meant to imply that I no longer think Trump will be facing heavy accountability this March, as I said he wouldin my last article. So, my reference to Trump having “the winds in his favor”  below doesn’t mean that he won’t be facing any headwinds at the same time; it just means that, on balance, he has sufficient protection from those headwinds for a couple months. 


In comparing the upcoming astrology to the astrology of the stock market plunges of 2008, 2000, and 1929, I developed the following projection:

Late March:
In late March, when Ketu joins Saturn in late Sagittarius, I think more and more people will start to sense foreboding environmental rumblings and a building emotional uneasiness in the air.

Mid/Late-April to Early-May:
By mid/late-April, or at least by early May, those foreshadowings will turn into a large-scale stock sell off. This is partly because Mercury and Venus will both be in Pisces starting mid-April. Pisces is the most fluid sign, and Venus is the planet of cash liquidity, while Mercury is the planet of quick financial transactions. Mercury is debilitated in Pisces, but Venus is exalted in Pisces. This creates a slightly destabilizing push-pull imbalance that I believe will be the critica nudge that activates the negative effects of the Saturn-Ketu conjunction on the markets (note: in some stock crashes, Mercury and Venus have been in Virgo, where Venus is debilitated and Mercury is exalted, creating a similarly destabilizing imbalance).

Saturn and Ketu are exactly conjunct on April 30, within 24 hours of when Saturn goes retrograde (April 29) and within 24 hours of when Mars exactly aspects that Saturn-Ketu conjunction from Taurus (May 1), so it looks like most of the damage to the market will be done by the beginning of May (probably the week of April 22 will be the worst, followed by more of the same as the subsequent week begins). The residual sell-off after that juncture will probably just be driven by desperate people who by then realize that the market won’t be rebounding anytime soon (in contrast to the way the market did rebound at end of last December, when interestingly, Pluto conjuncted the exact degree where Saturn and Ketu will be conjunct in late April of this year–which also happens to be exactly opposite the degree that Pluto occupied in Gemini during the 1929 stock market crash…and, yes, I’m taking that coincidence to be predictively meaningful).

As I have noted countless times since 2017, the Saturn-Ketu conjunction occurs in Sagittarius, which is America’s ascendant, so this conjunction represents a particularly strong challenge for America. Such conjunctions (even in other signs besides Sagittarius) have caused financial downturns and “panics” many times in world history since at least the year 1800, most likely because one of the biggest astrological effects of Saturn and Ketu is to promote fear—and fear causes people to liquidate things like stocks and speculative real estate. These conjunctions have also been correlated with military conflict and aggression (the most likely times for such aggression this year, even if it’s within a single country like the US, is around April 30/May 1 and mid-June, followed by July 4 and late-Sept/Oct).

As I’ve said a few times recently, this June is a terrible month for Trump. It is also just a rough month in general, astrologically speaking. This astrology won’t help the market recover from its April/May dive—and may even drive the market lower (in other words, it may not be the right timing to buy stocks in late May or June just because the stock market tanks in April and May—there still may be more tanking yet to come after May).

It’s even likely that the markets will struggle all the way into this coming fall. Saturn and Ketu will be conjunct for the final time in late September (they’re also conjunct on July 4th), and they will still remain problematically close to each other through October. Mars squares both Saturn and Ketu in the second half of October, so the markets could well be depressed by this year’s negative astrology until about Halloween (October 31). Elsewhere I’ve said that I think Trump will be leaving office between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so it is possible that the brewing Trump ordeal itself will adversely affect the markets this fall. But, it’s also possible that the negative astrology will manifest in a way that doesn’t involve the market at that point. But at the very least, the negative astrology this fall won’t be helping the market recover from the plunge that I think is coming this spring, even if this fall’s astrology isn’t driving the markets further down then.

One way for investors to handle the above predictions is obviously just to sell stocks now and wait until November or so before buying any stocks again. The other way, if one wishes to play the risk game a little more, would be to divide one’s stock portfolio into thirds, investing 1/3 in mid to late May, another third in mid-July, and the last third around Thanksgiving. This way, one would have a chance of catching the absolute bottom of the market with at least one third of their stock portfolio. The risk, however, is that one could invest up to two-thirds of their portfolio prematurely, before stocks have reached their absolute lowest point. In any case, being out of the market this April and May is likely to save one from major losses. I’m not a financial advisor, so I’m just pointing out some possible approaches here, and I’ll leave the actual financial planning advice to the experts.

If you want to play it safe, then just avoid stocks until at least December this year.

As I posted recently on Facebook and in my last article, Robert Mueller has three big astrological peaks left this year. The first one happens in the next week or two, but the other two peaks happen in late-June/early-July and October/November. So whatever Robert Mueller does in the next two weeks is not the end of his work, even though it will be big. In fact, I think it may turn out to be some kind of a beginning, since Mueller’s three astrological peaks are represented by a single kind of astrology (Saturn over the ascendant), which suggests that these three peaks are building upon each other.

I said in my last article that I wouldn’t be surprised if Mueller gave “some kind of a final report” soon, but I also said that any such report wouldn’t reach its “finality” until late this fall, during Mueller’s thirdastrological window. So, if Mueller does make a report that looks like his finished work within the next couple weeks, he will nevertheless be dragged back into the ensuing process of unraveling that report over the rest of the year, and particularly in June/July and October/November.

Obviously, the other possibility is that his big move over the next couple weeks is not his final move, and that he still has much work to finish on his probe by this fall. Either way, Mueller will still be busy with the Trump case until nearly the end of 2019.

I think that we are likely to see some kind of combination of the above two scenarios. It may look something like this:

Over the next two weeks, Mueller makes a very big move that is meant to appear conclusive. Then, Mueller is subjected in March to a major campaign to discredit, invalidate and marginalize that move by Trump supporters (Mueller has an intense few days around March 9, which is either hard work to make his next big move then, or some heavy backlash from that big move dropping just before March 9). Because of Trump’s boosting and protective Jupiter-Moon conjunction right now, it will initially look like the winds are in Trump’s favor. Thus, his summit this week with Kim Jung-un will likely be touted widely as a success (Trump is likely to be deceptive and deluded about the results of his summit with Kim, and we won’t really be able to determine its success or failure until at least mid-May). More to the present point, AG Bill Barr is less likely to divulge all the dirt on Trump this spring, if Barr were to receive the Mueller report in the next week or two. Regardless, Trump has the astrology of major grandstanding, lying and fighting/aggression for virtually all of March.

But June will be a different story.

I’m convinced now that Mueller finishes his Ketu subperiod this spring. Since Mueller hasn’t made his big move yet, this indicates that his ascendant degree is more like 24 degrees of Sagittarius, which means that his stifling Ketu subperiod probably ends by May, and maybe even as soon as early-April (we’ve been watching for Mueller’s next big move, the timing of which will enable us to deduce his ascendant degree, which we already knew must fall within the range of 20-24 degrees of Sagittarius). So, Mueller will regain his power just as Trump’s tough June astrology begins to drag Trump down, and Mueller will be potently involved this summer in ways that are very dangerous for Trump (regardless of whether Mueller is still conducting his investigation then or has issued his final report already). Jupiter won’t be protecting or promoting Trump so much then.

It’s also worth noting here that if the economy crashes this spring, then Trump will face opposition on a whole other front as well by then (of course, many people will say that the investigation of Trump was to blame for the economic hardships).
Whatever Mueller is working on in late June and early July, it will essentially amount to collecting steam for his final push on the Trump case this fall. That final push, and not whatever Mueller is about to do now, is what I think will eventually force Trump out of the presidency by Christmas (although Mueller’s move in the next week or two will definitely send damaging shock waves in Trump’s direction, regardless, which will move Trump towards his eventual exit).

That’s all I have time to write for now, but please review my last two articles for supplemental details.

I don’t know when my next full article will be finished, but I’m committed to covering the more uplifting topic of compassion in that post. It will be nice to look into such a beautiful aspect of life at that time.


May you rise high above the illusory ego-drama until we reconnect…!

  1. Hello Vishwan,

    Hope you’re aware of ongoing tension and skirmishes between India and Pakistan.
    Could you please shed some light on what is in the store overall for next few years.
    Are we looking at a full or limited war?

    Thanks & Regards

  2. Great Insights. I especially liked your post on the economic front. I would be closely watching the economic events this year to see if this really plays out the way you have stated. I would be very much surprised if this happens otherwise as I can relate to what you have mentioned in this article. Having a keen interest in Astrology, I can very well relate to the above article. Your mention about the Mercury and Venus in Pisces was very enlightening too as this was something that I hadn’t thought through. Overall, Brilliant Post!

    1. Thanks. We’ll see soon if I understood the astrology or not. In any case, I think we’ll at least see the market dive in the second quarter of 2019 (i.e. by this July). The above scenario is my best assessment of how that dive would play out.

  3. Mueller has just submitted his report today – just a couple of hours ago!!! And as you’ve mentioned, because of Trump’s Jupiterian protection, the news of the moment is that “Trump has won” because they’re claiming no more indictments. Now I have popcorn watching all this unfold in real time. SO grateful to have access to your astrological assessment for my own reassurance. Also, is it finally safe to say Mueller’s Ascendant is 20-24 degrees of Sagittarius?

    1. Yes, it was a big day, wasn’t it?!

      Mueller’s “big move” (the move I’d been talking so much about) happened a bit later than I had projected (about 2 weeks later than my first prediction, and still a week later than my revised prediction on Facebook), so this delayed timing has complicated my theory that Mueller’s ascendant is 20-24 degrees of Sagittarius. However, Mueller had peaking astrology in November that led to public court filings 1-3 weeks later (with Cohen and Manafort), so I suppose I could have expected a similar delay this month, even with a 24 degree Sagittarius ascendant. In other words, Mueller’s own work may have been most strenuous for HIM in early March, but then others may have taken the baton to do the actual writing/editing of the report over the subsequent 2 weeks.

      In any case, I’m going to stick with a 24 degree Sagittarius ascendant for now, since that’s what I reasoned would be the upper limit — because Trump’s dasha lord, Jupiter, is at 24 degrees of Virgo, and it didn’t make sense to me that Saturn would square Trump’s Jupiter AFTER Saturn conjuncted Mueller’s ascendant degree, given that Mueller’s work would be the cause of Trump’s accountability (and also, any substantially later of an ascendant would mean that Mueller’s Ketu subperiod ended weeks ago, which wouldn’t have made sense either, in my view). The later Mueller’s ascendant degree is, though, the earlier Mueller’s Ketu subperiod ends. So, watching how long Mueller’s work is marginalized now could provide more evidence to tweak our calculation of his ascendant (and the Ketu subperiod could even be over already, with anything over 24 degree ascendant). In any case, Saturn is at 25 degrees of Sagittarius today, so Mueller’s ascendant surely isn’t beyond that degree.

      Mueller has Mars transits through April, and both Saturn and Ketu pass retrograde over his ascendant degree in June, so Mueller is not sailing off peacefully into the sunset from here. Rather, he has increasingly stormy seas ahead, and it’s only just beginning of this new leg of Mueller’s journey…
