The Saturn-Neptune aspect is a 36 year cycle of deflation.
Neptune rules credit, and credit is accepted as money, but it is NOT real money as a circulating medium of exchange. Neptune also rules the money supply know as liquidity. Loans, bonds, and shares have some of the characteristics of money and are included in the broad money supply. However, hard assets such as gold and silver and cash are considered HARD MONEY, and credit and liquidity is considered SOFT MONEY.
Saturn-Neptune combinations such as the 270 degree backward square, has historically correlated to removing credit from the system by the Central Banks and a change (often a rise) in interest rates that effect the broad money supply, often after a massive monetary expansion period. Thus Saturn-Neptune is connected with inflation followed by deflation, and is also connected with the rise and decline of interest rates.
Historical crises that have occurred during 270 Degree Saturn-Neptune Backward Square are as follows:
1622: 30 Years War Crisis
1799: German Commodity Panic
1837: Land Panic
1873: Panic of 1873, Jay Cook Failure, German Panic
1945: Post WWII – Reconversion Recession
1963: The Great Salad Oil Swindle
1982-83: Recession, Mexican Debt Crisis
“Don’t Fight the FED”
Saturn-Neptune Backward Square Alignment – August 24th, 2015
The Saturn-Neptune backward square alignment began on August 24th, 2015.
The “Don’t fight the FED” meme is a key commandment for every trader on Wall Street, with the underlying assumption being that the Central Bankers rule financial markets and can move prices, wiping out anything in their way. However, the recent Chinese stock market rout in late August, and the global sell-off that followed, has called this dogma into question.
Several signs suggest that the loose monetary policy by the Central Bankers is increasingly proving ineffective and now the Central Banks are failing to generate enough upswing to win against the structural forces of constraining growth and inflation.
Monetary stimulus (e.g. QE4) can not fix low productivity in the economy, persistent unemployment, growing underemployment, stagnant demographics, debt overhangs and a lack of real reforms and fiscal stimulus.
A vast majority of “wealth” in the financial system is digital in nature – SOFT MONEY. Because of this, when the next Crisis hits, there will be a scramble for actual “ HARD MONEY” because derivatives (futures, options etc) and other digital forms of currency are in fact essentially worthless.
Charles Hugh Smith puts recent monetary movements into perspective which fits directly into the Saturn-Neptune hypothesis — “Liquidity Crunch” to “Global Derivatives Freeze” to “Asset Grab” and “Global Financial Reset”.
