The Jupiter-Saturn cycle can be aptly described by the following quote,
“Capital increases when the community produces more than it consumes. Capital decreases when the community consumes more than it produces.”
In mundane astrology, the fundamental Jupiter-Saturn archetypal dynamic in regards to national economies is capital formation and growth. There is a tendency for corporate revenue growth and stock market operating earnings to peak between a conjunction through the opposition phase of the cycle.
However, the fundamentals of capital and sound policies that spurred the economic growth during the conjunction are often ignored leading to the mismanagement of capital and policies that discourage necessary reforms, or hard work during the waning 270 backward square (e.g. Too Big To Fail…).
This often leads to overcapacity and excess inventories, thus lowering production that leads to crisis
