S&P500 lost 52 points last week. I was also expecting a higher market.
Here is the expected breakdown for the week of August 22, 2022, to August 26, 2022.
A new monthly solar return chart is effective from August 20 and will influence the stock market until September 19. The critical planet, Mars, occupies the 11th house in the sign Gemini. Although it is weak by sign and longitude, it has the company of the Moon in Gemini. The month-lord Sun is strong as it occupies its own sign, Leo. The lord of the second house is Mercury. It is pretty strong, occupying the sign it rules, Virgo. Although strong, Saturn continues to influence the nodes, Rahu and Ketu. This combination of malefic influence is not suitable for the stock market. The aspect of Jupiter on Venus is also good. Therefore, I expect this month to be volatile and may end up as a slightly bullish month.
The compressed Vimshottri Dasha planet for the period Aug 18 – 20 is Moon. Moon rules the 12th house and occupies the 11th house in Gemini. Therefore, it may try to push the indexes lower.
The compressed dasha for Aug 21 – 22 is Mars. Mars is weak as it has just entered the sign Gemini. It may give bad results. The market may therefore move lower during this period.
The compressed dasha for Aug 23 – 27 is Rahu. Rahu occupies the sign Taurus. It may give slightly good results, making trine aspects with strong Mercury in Virgo. The market may therefore move higher during this period.
Transits during this week: Sun and Venus are transiting in Leo, but Venus is not combust. Mars has just moved into Gemini. Rahu transits Taurus and Ketu Scorpio. They make a square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. The moon moves in Cancer and Leo. Moon conjuncts Venus during the week and gets the aspect of Jupiter. This setup can cause the stock market to go lower first and higher later.
