Weekly Finstrology Update for November 13: Expect the Unexpected

November 12, 2023

All times Eastern.

The first day of the trading week is filled with the potential for volatility with the new moon in Scorpio and Mars opposite Uranus. Start watching for the unexpected on Saturday, when Mars exactly opposes Uranus. The sun’s exact opposition occurs at 12:21 p.m. Monday, with the moon joining in when it is exact at 4:27 p.m. that day. 

The S&P 500 could make a high on Monday because Uranus is aligned with its first-trade Mars while the sun, moon and Mars are opposed. Also, transiting Pluto is exactly trine first-trade Jupiter while transiting Venus is conjunct

Spending wheels could get greased on Wednesday when Mercury in Sagittarius is in an opportunistic sextile with the money planet Venus in its ruling sign of Libra at 7:48 a.m. Hence, the retail sales report at 8:30 a.m. could be higher than expected. The wheels could go off the rails, though, as Mercury becomes out-of-bounds on Thursday, November 16 through December 1. 

In-depth research takes hold on Friday, November 17 as the sun and Mars head toward their conjunction in Scorpio on Saturday. Each planet makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces on Friday, placing focus on contemplating life’s big picture.

NCLH Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings

Norwegian Cruise Line, ranked fourth-largest in the world by passengers carried, announced earlier this month that it was canceling all stops in Israel through year-end 2024 with immediate effect due to the Hamas/Israeli conflict. The company said 7% of its cruise trips were to visit the Middle East through year-end.

The company has its roots in Norway, where it was founded in 1966. It now has headquarters in Miami, but incorporated in Bermuda in 2011. Its stock began trading in New York on January 18, 2013, and features two unusual astrological features. One is that Mercury, the ruler of communications, was in the heart of the sun, or “cazimi” and supercharged with brilliance. Second is that the 00 degrees of the cardinal signs occupy each of the major house angles, with Aries on the ascendant; this indicates a stock sensitive to global events. 

The first-trade sun can be activated at either highs or lows, but the first-trade moon is in play more at lows. At the record high of $64.27 on November 2, 2015, the first-trade sun was receiving a square, trine and opposition from other planets while the transiting sun was conjunct first-trade Saturn

Look for a low on November 13, as the sun, moon and Mars all are square to first-trade Mars. In addition, Jupiter is partile trine natal Pluto while transiting Venus trines Jupiter. Prices could make a high two weeks later, on November 24, when Venus is partile trine Mars and the moon is conjunct its natal position and square to the first-trade sun. 

Longer-term, watch for a high on February 16, 2024, when transiting Jupiter is partile trine natal Pluto with Venus, Mars and Pluto all conjunct the first-trade sun/Mercury conjunction. Two weeks later, prices could make a low on February 29, 2024, when Jupiter is partile trine natal Venus while four planets aspect first-trade Saturn.
