Mercury Retrograde Chart Pattern Forecast. 2020 June / July

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

Based on Planetary Retrograde Chart Pattern Theory, the following chart is a projection of the future S&P500 technical chart over the time period from June 2nd, 2020 through July 26th, 2020. You can find an in-depth explanation of Planetary Retrograde Chart Pattern Theory (as well as individual equity 2020 predictions) in the free members area.

The diagram below outlines the sky degrees involved in this Mercury retrograde cycle. This is a simple visual representation showing that the Mercury traverses the same area of the sky three times.

The following Chart shows the S&P behavior over the first shadow period of this Mercury retrograde cycle and the predicted market behavior to transpire over July 2nd through July 17th. Below the chart you will find the details of this interpretation.

In Summary:

A Neptune gone retrograde within Mercury retrograde + solar eclipse + a sharp decline in the first Mercury shadow period + a market just off it's all time highs = a market correction is imminent. On top of these two retrograde periods the two lunar eclipses have helped to extend the gains even in the face of Neptune Retrograde and a solar eclipse . The noticeable market impact of Lunar eclipses is only a few days; another reason for my expectation of a sharp market decline over the week of July 2nd through July 17th, 2020.

Predicted market behavior is represented by the purple zig-zag line between the two rightmost vertical green lines.

By assessing the market's behavior throughout the first mercury shadow period (the magnified area between the two green vertical lines on the left), we can expect that the market's behavior (white zig-zagging line moving horizontal across the chart) over the second shadow period (the space between the two green vertical lines on the right) will be relatively similar to the first shadow period. I say "relatively" because we must take into account that, although there will be a noticeable similarity between the two time windows, the influences of the other planets transiting Mercury will not be the same in each of the shadow periods.

Three Eclipses transpire during this mercury retrograde. Lunar eclipses (indicated by the black and white dashed vertical lines in the chart above) tend to influence the markets significantly, usually providing a temporary pop higher over a few days. As far as solar eclipses (indicated by the black and yellow dashed vertical line in the chart above) there is plenty of evidence online to draw the conclusion that solar eclipses are connected to stock market crashes. This is not to say that every solar eclipse marks a crash, far from it. However if the market conditions are ripe for a crash heading into a solar eclipse, the chances will be high that a crash will happen.

Neptune has also gone retrograde (indicated by the purple vertical line in the chart above) within the middle of this Mercury retrograde cycle. Neptune may be the most significant planet relating to financial markets. All other influences aside, a Neptune Retrograde Station is associated with market declines and does not bode well for the markets in the near term. Even more disturbing is the fact that we are almost back to February highs as we head into the second Mercury shadow period.

With respect to the first shadow period (June 2nd - June 18th) one can deduce that the S&P 500 will display a similar significant decline over the second shadow period (July 12th - July 26th.) The two lunar eclipses on either side of the June 22nd Solar eclipse have helped to extend gains *temporarily, even in the face of Neptune's retrograde station. As of today (July 7th, 2020) we may be experiencing a "Melt Up" at the peak of the infamous bear market "Dead Cat Bounce." Investors beware. There is a strong possibility that the expected decline in the the approaching 2nd shadow period will be much more significant than the decline in the first shadow period and might even be a crash.
