We hear "Mercury in Retrograde" quite a lot around here concerning financial wealth.

The History of “Mercury in Retrograde”

 

Here is a brief discussion of it's origin and meaning:

 

What is Mercury in Retrograde, and Why Do We Blame Things On It?

Mercury retrograde—as it's technically called—was being written about in astrology circles as far back as the mid-18th century.

The Roman god Mercury was said to govern travel, commerce, financial wealth, and communication, in astrological circles, Mercury the planet became linked to those matters as well.
"Don’t start anything when Mercury is retrograde," an April 1979 issue of The Baltimore Sun instructed its readers. "A large communications organization notes that magnetic storms, disrupting messages, are prolonged when Mercury appears to be going backwards. Mercury, of course, is the planet associated with communication." The power attributed to the event has become so overblown that today it's blamed for everything from digestive problems to broken washing machines.

Finally a real explanation thanks Roger.  Never really understand all those sayings about this is doing that etc so it helps.  I can't remember the older guys name I followed a little years ago, he called the 87 crash to a tee and became famous for that and focused on Bradley turns more in the 90's.  Hmmmmm, wore glasses, anyone know???

Today we've reached Solar Perihelion!

 

3,000,000 miles closer to the sun will definitely cause stocks to rally!...or fall...

 

Two weeks after winter solstice the Earth's orbit is closer to the sun than at any other time of year—a result of the Earth's elliptical orbit.

Today we are receiving about 7% more solar energy than normal.

 

Perihelion Day is on January 4 this year.

It occurs about two weeks after every December Solstice, and on this day, Earth's center is approximately 91,402,500 miles from the sun's center.

 

Now we must prepare for Aphelion day in July.
