The Dollar

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was signed by President Woodrow Wilson at 6:02pm on December 23, 1913. (Source)

Here is the heliocentric natal chart, with Jupiter's position establishing the harmonics. Jupiter is at 27°Cap25'21", or 297.5° from 0° Aries. (This is only 1/2° clockwise from gold's natal chart.) Neptune is directly opposite Jupiter at 36°.

12/23/1913: Federal Reserve (Dollar) Natal Chart

On November 24, 2008, the Fed announced QE1, the quantitative easing program to buy $500 billion in mortgage bonds . Uranus on this date is at 21.5° Pisces, an exact 18° harmonic. Jupiter is near its natal return at 72°.

11/24/2008: QE1

On November 3, 2010, QE2 was announced, adding $600 billion into circulation. At this time, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Earth are in a 36° harmonic Golden Triangle configuration.

11/3/2010: QE2

July 23, 2012 was the Neptune-Venus conjunction discussed here, which occurred near the Fed's 36° and was responsible for the major top in the dollar the following day, and kicked off the bull run for gold and silver.


There will be a Uranus-Earth conjunction on September 29, 2012 near the Fed's 72° harmonic. This is near gold's 72° and silver's 36° so this event should be important to the dollar and to metals. Venus crosses the Fed's 72° the following day.


Neptune will cross the Fed's 36° harmonic on May 20, 2013. This is 1 day before Cowan's Beast Cycle and Uranus' return to its position at the top of the 1929 stock market discussed here.


Uranus crosses the Fed's 72° the following month, on June 23, 2013.


  1. So, what does this all mean? Dollar going up, dollar going down, equities up, equities down?

    1. Unfortunately, all I can provide are turn approximate dates. I can't say for sure that the date will be a top or a bottom, and sometimes it means a leveling off or a coming out of consolidation. Usually the picture becomes more clear as we approach the turn dates. I suggest using this blog in conjunction with other methods.

    2. I have high confidence that equities bottomed on August 31 with the Jupiter-Ceres conjunction. This was discussed here:

      The equities markets have much higher to go. In the big picture I am expecting a triple top of the S&P.

  2. When you say "There will be a Uranus-Earth conjunction on September 29, 2012 near the Fed's 72° harmonic (gold's 72°/silver's 36°). Venus crosses 72° the following day."

    Are you saying that this conjunction is bullish or bearish?


    1. I'm sorry I don't know for sure. My expectation from looking at many other clues (which may or may not be correct) is that the dollar is headed for ~79 and gold is headed for ~1800 before any significant change in trend. So we will have to see where we are in the bigger picture at the end of the month. What I provide here is just one piece of the big puzzle.

  3. Excellent post!

    What software are you using for your helio charts? Can it draw the 72 degree harmonics the way you're showing it on the charts as a 5 pointed start?

    1. Thank you PimaCanyon :)

      I use Kairon for charting. It does not draw the harmonics. I have to capture the image and then draw the star in by hand using Preview.

  4. I notice a few of your dates are very near a key Gann turn date, namely Sep 20/21 the fall equinox.
    Which one rules and will override the other to pull the turn in to its date ?

    BTW, I think I know how/why the timeframe of August 14-16 sees so many historic event dates in history, usually financial:
    Nature counts many ways, and perhaps the simplest is just to count days from the regular Julian calendar.
    JD 228 is August 15 in a non-leap year.
    228 is of course just 12 times 19, the key Metonic number.

    1. Very interesting! Thank you!

      I was not aware of the Gann turn dates. Are they at both the equinoxes and both solstices?

  5. Martin seems to be in an especially owly mood lately. Could you post at least 1 astro (geo or solarcentric) of around this time?:

    This means August 7th, 2013 we must be very careful about next year. We will be looking at the global markets at the upcoming conferences (San Diego-Bangkok-Berlin) around the world. So yes! This is a very serious development. We may not last until 2015.75 and that could be the complete economic meltdown.

    1. I have been talking about this turn since 1 year ago.

      My date is only 10 days later than Marty's. At some point I will do a chart, but certainly it is the 72° Jupiter-Mars conjunction that will be responsible for this turn. Saturn is near 18° as well.

  6. Platy,
    I am new to astro trading and I am wondering how come you are not using April 2, 1792 (the coinage act) or July 4, 1776 as USD natal date?

    1. The nature of the U.S. currency was fundamentally changed with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. It is the birth of the dollar as we know it today. As with any new analysis, these harmonics for the dollar should be treated as experimental until they have been tested against predictions. I have a pretty important turn predicted for 9/29, so this is a first test.

      Generally it is a challenge to find the correct natal date of an instrument as there are often multiple possible natal dates. Back-testing against past major turns is necessary.
