Check out this passage from my blog post “Jupiter in Capricorn,” which I published on November 29, 2019. I was discussing how ridiculously polarized politics had become while Jupiter was transiting Sagittarius, when I went off on a tangent about how Mars’ ingress into the sign of the goat would manifest itself:
“A few other things should happen, too, including a major market correction. The over-inflated stock market should come crashing down to earth soon. Once Mars enters Capricorn in mid-February, we’re in for six weeks of major volatility as the red planet forms aspects with all the other planets already in the sign. Remember that America’s last “Great Recession” started in December of 2007, the last time that Jupiter entered Capricorn.”
I could blame the Coronavirus, but it was just a catalyst for something that anyone could have seen coming. Yeah, I could have been rich if I took my own advice, but that would have required some money to invest: something I don’t have.
Nevertheless, my timing was pretty good. I predicted a mid-February crash, so I was only a few days off. Do I expect a recovery? Not really. And once Saturn moves into Aquarius on March 21, I don’t know what to expect because it’s going to be returning to Capricorn in a lengthy retrograde cycle. I will say this, though: if you have money to invest, put it into something tangible. Capricorn wealth is the kind of wealth you can hold in the palm of your hand, not a marginal idea that somehow becomes an over-hyped, destined-to-fail IPO.
I did make another accurate prediction in the same post if you consider this passage from “Cafe Astrology” I quoted in the context of Donald Trump’s mishandling of the Coronavirus situation:
“With Jupiter in Capricorn, we attract the best good fortune when we organize and direct, conduct ourselves with integrity, and employ an ethical and mature approach. We need to take a disciplined, committed, step-by-step approach to the realization of our goals.”
Perhaps the Manchurian Pumpkin should be looking to the stars in the sky instead of taking the advice of the stars of Fox News . . .
