Jan 16 – 20, 2023

The S&P500 gained 104 points last week. I was also expecting a higher market.

Here is the expected breakdown for the week of  January 16, 2022, to January 20, 2023.

The compressed Vimshottri dasha planet for Jan 16 is Mars. Mars occupies the 9th house in the sign Gemini. It is retrograde, also. It may, therefore,  give poor results. The market is closed for Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

A new monthly solar return chart begins on January 17 that will remain in effect until February 15, 2023. Jupiter in the sign Aries occupies the 12th house. This is a negative factor. The key planet, Mars, has become direct and occupies the second house in the Gemini sign, a sign of its enemy Mercury. This is also a negative factor. Jupiter aspects the planet Moon, which is about to change its sign from Scorpio to Sagittarius.  This configuration can present some favorable situations.  Overall, in my view, this month may be somewhat challenging for the U.S. stock markets. 

Saturn is the compressed  Dasha planet for the period  Jan 17 – 20 in the new monthly chart. Saturn occupies the 10th house in the sign Aquarius. Therefore, during this period, the indexes may end only slightly higher.

Transits during this week:  Mercury and Sun transit through Capricorn during this week. Venus remains in Aquarius along with Saturn.  Rahu transits Taurus and Ketu Scorpio. The moon moves in Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn. Other planets form more unfavorable aspects than favorable ones during the week. The Moon cycle changes from the downswing to the upswing on January 18. This setup can cause the stock market to go lower on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and higher on Friday. The market is closed on Thursday.

Overall this week, the market may be Slightly LOWER.

  1. Thanks for reply, and good results for your view last week. It is tough to follow, one needs a strategy as i have been burnt many times just trying to follow astro daily like susan gidel, she has terrible daily calls. Even if just tries to buy when suggested bullish, sometimes the biggest bearish days, I have almost lost total faith in astro sources, yours is refreshing with the honesty and above average calls, thank you for assisting us, lets hope to make this year recover all losses. Seems about correct from april big rally then drop seems to be from sept, perhaps choppy before and around that time, but oct seems like could be crash according to two sources, so what 20% in a week then slow recovery not taking near new highs but then several year bear market begins

    • James:
      Thanks for writing a detailed email. I certainly try to do my best and accept my mistakes honestly. However, you should not use astrology only for your investments. No astrologer can be perfect. You must use a few technical indicators. I would suggest using a 20-day moving average or a stop loss methodology.
      Your analysis of monthly returns is exactly what I think can happen in 2023. My studies for the long term sugest that we may have to wit until 2026 to see a fresh bull market.
      Good luck

  2. Thank you for sharing. Spelling error this week ‘market closed thursday should read ‘monday”
    You made 3 changes to months expectation for the year, should we expect this through the year or is this data final? Will you change monthly as and near the time, or can we plan ahead with this 2023 outlook you have provided is my query. Best wishes.

    • James:
      So far this is my opinion. But I may change sometimes, but most likely I will not.
      Here is my update on the monthly forecasts for 2023. We may have slightly lower or flat months until April 15, then a bull market for three months. The last five months may either be highly down or up. I will update you later about these months. The net result could either be flat or slightly lower or slightly higher than the 2022 close.
