May 17 – 21, 2021

S&P500 lost 59 points last week. I was expecting a slightly higher market. 

Here is the expected breakdown of the week of  May 17, 2021 – May 21, 2021.

A new monthly solar return chart is applicable from May 17, which would remain in effect until June 17, 2021. The lord of the month is Sun, which is in sign Taurus in the 6th house.  This is a negative feature. The critical planet Mars is in the sign of its fall, Cancer. It occupies the 8th house. This configuration of Mars is terrible.  The close conjunction of Mercury and Venus in Gemini is good, but Moon and Saturn’s mutual aspect is not welcome. This month, therefore, may be a down month for the US stocks. The period between June 1 and 10 could especially be disturbing.

The compressed vimshottri dasha planet for the period May 17 – 18 is Saturn. Saturn occupies the 3rd house in the sign Aquarius. It has aspects of the eighth lord Moon and fallen Mars. This configuration could result in a mixed or slightly lower market.

The cvd planet for the period May 19 – 23 is Mercury. Mercury is in Gemini with Venus. It may therefore produce a  positive effect on the market.

Transits during this week:  Mars is weak, as it occupies the sign of Cancer. Jupiter, Mercury, and Saturn occupy their own signs. This setup can cause the stock market to go higher. 

Overall this week, the market may go slightly higher.
