“Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.” – President Obama to House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, January 23, 2009.

Students at America’s top universities were less than elated by the election results. “Teary eyes, bowed heads, and cries of disbelief emerged from election-watching gatherings on Yale campus,” reports the Yale Daily News…. But at Harvard, the Crimson reports, “Students, realizing that Clinton may not win, began to do homework.” Desperate times call for desperate measures. – James Taranto,, “Notable and Quotable,” November 10, 2016.

In the most stunning upset in American political history, Donald Trump triumphed over the favored Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, November 8, and will serve as the USA’s 45th president. Once again, the candidate who was ahead in the polls 2-5 weeks before the election, lost. For most of Tuesday, Clinton was ahead. Then, just after midnight Eastern Standard Time, right around the time that Mars changed signs, from Capricorn to Aquarius, the votes for Trump started to pile up and he never looked back, while Clinton supporters found it very difficult to look ahead. It was crushing, heartbreaking - and so symbolic of someone going through a 29-year transit of Saturn over the nadir of her natal chart.

Financial markets were just as stunned as the American populace. The Dow Jones Industrial futures market fell 800 points, and S&P fell 107 points, when it became clear that the improbable was happening. That set off the circuit breakers to stop trading. Gold reversed from a low of $1268/ounce and suddenly exploded up $70, to $1338. Ten-Year Notes were at a monthly high of 131, and suddenly collapsed down to 127/26, its lowest level since January. In the case of stocks, that pre-market plunge took equity indices to their lowest price since the Brexit mini panic last June (another surprise voting result that eluded pollsters). By the end of trading on November 9, the DJIA was up over 250 points, and the next day, another +200 points to a new all-time high (but not so in the S&P futures). Investors quickly realized that in Trump, they had a president who was on the side of economic growth – lower individual and corporate taxes, eliminating onerous regulations to small businesses, etc. USA stocks were quickly in demand, even though no one was quite sure how a man of his temperament would ever be able to work with Congress, let alone reverse his own huge negative approval ratings from the public going into the election.

Gold and currencies against the U.S. Dollar did not fare so well after the initial surge. One day after the election results, Gold was re-testing $1250. By Friday, it was testing 1220, near the 1200 low of May 3, and down almost $120 in just two days. The U.S Dollar soared from a low of 95.88 on the eve of the election, to 99.13 on Friday, its highest mark since February 1. We are back on track for the U.S. Dollar to post its 16-year cycle crest, January 2017, +/- 6 months.



Short-Term Geocosmics and Long-Term Thoughts

The word “supermoon” was coined in 1979 by astrologer Richard Nolle, AccuWeather’s Mark Paquette said. Nolle used the term to describe a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is at or near its closest approach to Earth… The exact moment of the full moon is Tuesday at 6:52 AM (MST). The moon will reach perigee – the moon’s closest point to earth, within about 90 minutes of that time…(This) November full moon (will be) the closest full moon since 1948.” – Doyle Rice, “Supermoon to be Closest Since 1948,” Arizona Republic, November 11, 2016.

It was a wild week, and it correlated with extreme emotions, from elation to despair – probably about what an astrologer could expect. All of this volatility may be associated with heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius (November 5-16). Sagittarius exaggerates everything. Next week it may continue with geocentric Mercury moving onto Sagittarius (November 12-December 2). The volatility of emotions (moon) could peak in the next three days, as we will witness the brightest super (full) moon since 1948. That just happened to be the last time such a stunning national election upset took place in the USA. Harry Truman beat Thomas Dewey to become the president that year. Hardly anyone expected it. Everyone was shocked – elated or terribly distraught about the future. Everyone survived, and so too did the republic. Pollsters took a hit, however. Yet, people continued to look to the polls for guidance and have ever since – even though they occasionally misjudged the results. Sort of like astrologers.

So, what happened? How did so many credible and professional astrologers miss this election result? The answer is not hard to explain. Like pollsters, astrologers overweighed or underweighed various factors used in their forecasting models. Astrology didn’t miss the call, but astrologers (like pollsters) did, in their weighting of these factors, which creates a learning experience for all students of the cosmic science. There were several correlations in geocosmic and cyclical studies that pointed to a possible Trump victory, many of which were mentioned in this column, but few of which were given as much weight as other studies indicating a Clinton victory. It was, in many cases, a judgement call. And let us not lose sight of the fact that Clinton did win the popular vote, which really represents the limit of what astrological forecasting is designed to analyze. I cannot think of a single astrological model that would be able to measure or project an electoral vote outcome with more probability than a popular vote. Astrology is quite able to ascertain a person’s (such as a candidate’s) probable mood on any given day or period in life, and from that one may deduce that a particular candidate’s success or failure, assuming a victory is cause for elation and defeat is cause for heartbreak. In this case, it could have been.

Excerpt from introduction to Forecasts 2017:

The significance of 0° Capricorn is important to understand as we begin the analysis of the year 2017. That is, zero degrees of Capricorn symbolizes the true end of a matter in time, and the start of a new cycle, or era. In astrology, Saturn rules Capricorn. On December 20, 2017, the 29-year cyclical orbit of Saturn around the Sun will enter Capricorn, as seen from Earth. One day later, the winter solstice will commence as the Sun also enters Capricorn and joins Saturn at 0° Capricorn. The last time an “inner planet” (Sun, Mercury, or Venus) entered 0° Capricorn with an “outer planet” (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto) was January 24-25, 2008. That was the week when the financial panic exploded. It commenced the Great Recession. That was the week when central banks of the world began their extraordinary, unprecedented, and unorthodox measures regarding interest rates (the move towards ZIRP, or Zero Interest Rate Policy), which led to worldwide debt, stagnant economic growth, and the decimation of middle class savers, which continues to this day.
It was the end of an era, and the start of a new era. That era is now approaching its end, which means we are on the brink of beginning another new era - Raymond Merriman.

It is a free service, except in those cases where a fee may be assessed to cover the cost of translating this column from English into a non-English language.

This weekly report is written with the intent to educate the reader on the relationship between astrological factors and collective human activities as they are happening. In this regard, this report will oftentimes report what happened in various stock and financial markets throughout the world in the past week, and discuss that movement in light of the geocosmic signatures that were in effect. It will then identify the geocosmic factors that will be in effect in the next week, or even month, or even years, and the author's understanding of how these signatures will likely affect human activity in the times to come.

The author (Merriman) will do this from a perspective of a cycle's analyst looking at the military, political, economic, and even financial markets of the world. It is possible that some forecasts will be made based on these factors. However, the primary goal is to both educate and alert the reader as to the psychological climate we are in, from an astrological perspective. The hope is that it will help the reader understand these psychological dynamics that underlie (or coincide with) the news events and hence financial markets of the day.
