Black Swan Rising

“I told you not to wonder round in the dark
I told you ‘bout the swans, that they live in the park.”
-Badge, Eric Clapton

“The moon is responsible for much of what takes place on the surface of the Earth.”
-The Age of Adaline

This report is going to seem pretty odd to many of you I suspect but bear with me on this.

Many market letters would never get into the weeds with this stuff, but that’s  why you’re here.

I always go out on a limb, even if I end of sawing it off behind me.

But there’s a reason.

One of the factors behind that reason is that I uncover stuff when I delve into the esoteric side of the markets.

Before he passed away the legendary Vedic astrologer Chakrapani Ullal told me that the North Node of the moon was one of the keys to his forecasting the markets.

The North Node of the moon is Rahu in Sanskrit.

It is one of the causes of eclipses.

On page 69 in W.D. Gann’s coded novel Tunnel Thru The Air, Gann “reveals” how to tell the future.

It’s not crystal clear. As Gann stated, the book is coded.

Gann refers to the Key Of Jonah.

Page 69, the number is a big clue.

In the novel, the protagonist, Robert Gordon was born on 6/9.

The number 69 is the symbol for Cancer.

Cancer is ruled by the moon.

Gann quotes Matthew 12:38, 39 AND 40. (3)

“For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”

Why 3 days and 3 nights? Why doesn’t the Bible just say 3 days which includes 3 nights?

3 X 3 is 9, the first square on the Square of 9 Wheel.

3 + 3 is 6.

As Nicola Tesla stated: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3.6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.”

Gann wrote:

“I believe there was a secret meaning in what he (JONAH) had said; that the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. I believe that a man who understands the meaning of that has all the power under heaven and earth, as the Bible says he shall have. I believe that that is the key to the interpretation of the future. I am sure I have found it and know how to apply it.”

What is Jonah in the belly of the whale (fish)?

My believe is that the whale is symbolic of a Vesica Pisces.

A Vesica Pisces is formed when the circumference of one body is in the center of another body.

When the circumference of the Moon is in the center of the body of the Sun a third body is formed.

This is called the Vesica Pisces (Vessel Of Jesus?... Holy Grail?)

It looks like a vertical fish.

This geometry is produced when there is an eclipse.

My impression is that of the major methods of Gann’s trading decisions was the position of the Sun, Moon and Earth. The THREE.

An eclipse involves the Sun and the Moon as seen from the Earth.

This can be proven with the Square of 9 Wheel.

That’s something that I get into with those consulting clients who buy The Wheel.

Of course not all eclipses are created equal.

It depends upon where they occur in the zodiac and how this correlates to the price movement or pattern in markets when  similar eclipses have occurred.

2023 is one of those times.

In 1929 the North Node was in a position it has not been in until 2023.

Essentially there was an eclipse in May of 1929 that has many similarities with one that occurred in April 2023. Notice the one month offset.

The market struck a high one month earlier in July this year, one month ahead of the late August/early September high in 1929.

Interestingly, we had a solar eclipse on November 1st 1929 which is 3 days after the big crash.

This year we have a solar eclipse on October 14th.

One month offset.

I think any time within the ‘moonth’ one month cycle is synchronous.

In other words the time period either side of one month of this years October 14th solar eclipse is

In the cross hairs.

Today is September 15th. We are 180 degrees straight across and opposite the important March 13, 2023 low, the low for the year. So far.

Thursday was day 49 from the SPX July 19th high, the high for 2023. So far.

Gann called 7 the number of time and panic.

49 is 7 squared days or 7 WEEKS.

Day 49 in 1987 was October 13th, a Tuesday. Black Monday was the 19th.

Here is the current SPX since July:

Day 49 in 1929 was Tuesday October 22.

October 24th was Black Thursday, the first of two horrendous crashes that October.

From the fall of 1929 to the fall of 1987 is 58 years.

From the fall of 1929 to the fall of 2023 is 94 years.

94 divided by 58 is 1.62. A Fibonacci spiral relationship.

Maybe something, maybe nothing.

But…it is interesting that today is a monthly Opex.

Friday October 16th, 1987 was also a monthly Opex before Black Monday that year.

If a Black Swan event occurs this fall, we will not be out of the woods as we were in 1987.

Tomorrow’s report will explain.
