Solar eclipse and lunar eciplse and its effects on you

Posted in interesting by moneymanagement on August 1, 2008

If you are wondering what is this topic doing on a blog on money management read on. While I do not subscribe the these views, being an Indian makes me less skeptical than most.

An eclipse of the Sun (or solar eclipse) can only occur at New Moon when the Moon passes between Earth and Sun. If the Moon’s shadow happens to fall upon Earth’s surface at that time, we see some portion of the Sun’s disk covered or ‘eclipsed’ by the Moon. Since New Moon occurs every 29 1/2 days, you might think that we should have a solar eclipse about once a month. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen because the Moon’s orbit around Earth is tilted 5 degrees to Earth’s orbit around the Sun. As a result, the Moon’s shadow usually misses Earth as it passes above or below our planet at New Moon. At least twice a year, the geometry lines up just right so that some part of the Moon’s shadow falls on Earth’s surface and an eclipse of the Sun is seen from that region.

Here comes the relevance to moneymanagement

Steve Puetz found that most of the major market crashes have happened around the PUETZ window, which is 6 days ahead/behind the full moon within 6 weeks of a solar eclipse. This effect is magnified when the full moon is also a lunar eclipse.

Chris Carolan found striking similarities between the 29, 87, and other crashes in terms of lunar calenders and the distance between the initial high, low, final failed rally, and crash.

Looks to me like we could be in a bit of an 87 pattern here with a similar drop to this point, temp bottom, bounce/retrace, final failed rally, then crash. I’m just putting two and two together here from the work of the above as well as my own.

The 87 crash also had a solar eclipse going into the final failed rally – so do we at this point (8/1) and there’s a combined full moon and lunar eclipse 8/16. The crashes of 87 & 29 also had solar eclipse and then a full moon/lunar eclipse at the crash or close thereby.

So, not only do we have a 3:3:3 coming in Elliott Wave terms, but we’re also poised to break under a very important 1200 (actually 1170), and we now have a similar setup to 1987 in terms of recent price movement and the solar/full moon/lunar eclipse events pending.

The website even has an interesting chart which you can check out here
