A thousand years ago when money meant coins, China invented paper currency. Now the Chinese government is minting cash digitally, in a re-imagination of money that could shake a pillar of American power. Beijing is also positioning the digital Yuan for international use and designating it to be untethered to the global financial system, where the U.S. dollar is king. - James Areddy, "China is Creating Digital Currency, First for a Major Economy," Wall Street Journal, April 5, 2021.

"No one can argue against the fact that Bitcoin has been in a "boom" cycle. As recently as March 13, 2020, Bitcoin was trading below $4000. Now it is more than 15 times higher, making new all-time highs above $60,000, with many "experts" calling for $100,000 and even higher, while various central banks
(as in China and the U.S.) are looking into creating national digital currencies. And of course, Coinbase, the largest retail seller of crypto currencies, had a very large IPO start last week. This all fits with Venus (ruler of Taurus and hence another `currency" related planet) conjunct Uranus (digital) in Taurus (sign
of money), which is approaching April 22. Following that, the Sun in Taurus will also conjoin Uranus on April 30. That is why the tortoise may be in for a bit of a jolt."

"Bitcoin stayed strong, testing 59,000 last week, still a little off its all-time high of 64,900 on April 14. But Ethereum, another popular cryptocurrency, surpassed 3600 on Friday for the first time."

"Jupiter will ingress from Aquarius to Pisces this week, May 13-July 28. Ingresses correspond to a change of collective psychology regarding the principles of that planet and the signs involved. Jupiter's main principle is one of exaggeration, expansion, growth, and optimism."

"Pisces is one of the four mutable signs, and probably the most prone to market reversals of all the changeable, mutable signs. This is especially true with equities, metals (more Silver than Gold) and Crude Oil. If a financial
market is making a new multi-month high then, it usually stops and reverses sharply down. If instead a market is falling hard to a multi-month low, it can qualify as a long- or intermediate-term cycle trough and then reverse upwards."

"It's the oldest market conflict of all: greed versus fear, Jupiter versus Saturn. And until this week, May 13, they have been in the same sign, Aquarius, since the winter solstice of December 21, 2020. This has been a very bullish period. Now Jupiter will ingress into Pisces, a mutable sign, May 13-July 28. Here is where markets likely experience greater extremes. With mutable signs, the highs and lows are often exaggerated, both in terms of market prices and the psychological mood of the collective."

IOTA noted that the price of the digital asset registered an upsurge from mid-March, but began consolidating in April. Despite volatility observed in the remaining altc0in the market, IOTA more or less withstood it and was trading at a historically high value of $1.90. Meanwhile, the market seemed to be gearing up for more buying pressure as the relative strength index was rising from the oversold zone. This spike indicated that there was a rise in buying pressure in the IO'TA market and the digital asset could be heading towards a trend reversal.
One explanation you need to put resources into crypto and its innovation is on the grounds; crypto is changing the economy state of any country that moves toward innovation and that way being an early adopter gives you an edge over others that will become tied up with it late. While taking a gander at the development pace of digital money and the chance it present. why not investigate it and have a reexamine about the specific venture you wish to make now.

As the Sun moved over Uranus recently... and the New Moon in Taurus

"The swiss bank UBS is studying the possibility to offering cryptocurrency investments to its wealthy clients, according to Bloomberg, which cites sources familiar with the matter without naming them.
The projects are still "at an early stage," Like other large banks, UBS, the number one in the Swiss banking sector, has so far been very reserved about digital currencies, multiplying warnings and calls for caution in the face of these highly speculative investments. Axel Weber, chairman of UBS, and former head of the German central bank, has repeatedly warned of the risks of bubbles and correction
The bank is mainly interested in the technology behind these digital assets, he added, however, referring to distributed ledger technology, considered to be the backbone of cryptocurrencies.
Recently, several major US banks have taken the plunge, stepping into digital currencies after long reluctance. In February, Bank of New York Mellon announced that it plans to move into digital asset management on behalf of its clients.
Morgan Stanley investment bank will allow the wealth managers of its richest clients to invest in bitcoin funds.
Goldman Sachs, meanwhile, has embarked on orders on cryptocurrency-related derivatives, according to an internal memo unveiled last week, formalizing the establishment of an internal team dedicated to cryptocurrency brokerage." (Agence France Presse)

So what do people attribute this plunge in Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies to astrologically?

Mercury on the nodes, Saturn square Uranus, or the Sun parallel Saturn? or something else based on an inception chart for Bitcoin?

Hello Mark,
To answer your question more specifically, I am not following the bitcoin or digital currencies in a tight manner. Just the major trends and the bitcoin is so volatile it is a risky business right now. With Jupiter (growth) Ingress in Pisces (Mutable) we will see a lot of up and down swings in the market. "Volatility" is the keyword. Gas, oil, sea products, Being the detriment of Mercury, it will be difficult to find a rationale behind these changes and the Exaltation sign of Venus, luxury products will go on the uprise. But watch when Jupiter turns Retro, people will not be happy when they start receiving the bills.

Essentially this is the Saturn/Uranus square this year and the 7-year itch of Uranus in Taurus (challenging the monetary financial foundations).
The Bitcoin was created under an opposition Saturn Virgo/Uranus Pisces creating a signature and a sensitivity to the cycle Saturn/Uranus.
Ray Merriman is also saying that the axis 19-21 Pisces (inception chart of the Bitcoin) are 'supercharged' degrees for the economy because of the major cycles of outer planets started in the 60's

This site below does give an analysis of the Bitcoin astrologically

https://astro-cryptos.github.io/docs/bitcoin/bitcoin-natal-chart/

So far, Bitcoin transactions and other digital currencies have created a parallel economy for crime, money laundering, drug and arms deals. If major Banks are entering the dancefloor, my fear is that it may become a "legal" fiscal paradise that may shake the World economy.

The single most used currency for illegal activity is the USD. Cash had been used for centuries without banks perverting the nature of money and turning it into a system of control.

Bitcoin by contrast is fully transparent which is why smart criminals no longer use it. The FBI loves the fact that chain analytics can track everything that's done with bitcoin online (how did that work out for Ross Ulbricht?). What banks don't like about it is that they can't counterfeit their way out of fiscal responsibility (yet, but Paypal is working on that by violating the principle of "proof of keys" allowing them to sidestep blockchain truth and implementing price suppression).

While Elon crashed the price, I'm expecting a rebound very soon. Jupiter just ingressed into Pisces which means that Saturn temporarily has lost a hold on the principles of freedom and justice. The biggest criminals currently have control of the world's fiat systems which are beginning to show weakness.

That said, I'm not confident in the longevity of bitcoin long term. Since Peter Todd took the "advice that cannot be refused" of John Dillon and implemented RBF with protocol ossification taking hold of the 1MB block size limit as a Schelling point for "digital gold", Aristotle's two other principles for sound money go ignored (medium of exchange and unit of account).

Declaring it a stock also makes it extremely hard to use as a payment system (in addition to the fact that RBF and 1MB limits cause fees to skyrocket due to the auctioneering effect within the mempool). The FATF also has a sanctions list of blacklisted addresses creating the phenomena of "tainted bitcoin" which ruins the fungibility of the asset.

Blockstream which many of the employees have more interest in bitcoin going up than offending the incoming Wall Street crowd seems to have diverted away from the original cypherpunk ethos having sold out. Taproot, Tapscript and Schnorr signatures commits will likely be too little, too late to fix what's wrong with bitcoin.

Patents like this one by Microsoft are popping up which seek to subvert the original use case of cryptocurrencies:

https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=WO2020060606

If cyberpolygon.com plays out like event 201 did in late 2019, then you'll need an internet passport to match your vaccine passport to do anything on the internet. Programmers are working on a way to encode vaccine data residing below the skin from microneedle patches or vaccine enzymes to be picked up by signals hooked into IoT:

https://news.mit.edu/2019/storing-vaccine-history-skin-1218

There's already a more primitive way of doing this with diabetics sending the information to your smartphone which then gets transmitted to Google:

https://www.everydayhealth.com/type-2-diabetes/treatment/fda-approves-first-implantable-cgm-diabetics/

This will likely expand into all areas of health such as monitoring brain activity, with geolocation data.

Prediction markets will be formed to pick up "body activity data" from the Microsoft patent above, so that your owners can gamble on your movements and sell the cryptocurrency you've generated to other parties involved in trading you as a stock in their market.

How far this progresses depends upon how much the people submit to authority. They'll try to advance this agenda granularly to avoid raising suspicions, calling it a "conspiracy theory" when called out on it all while us programmers know the truth because we've been asked to program it.

Zoidsoft,

Agree with you, We need more transparency in the financial world.
A World fiscal reform has been long overdue to replace traders who are playing Monopoly with people's money.
And the fact that Social Medias are leading the pack with NO physical assets, NO products and NO physical goods for mankind.
Deserting Facebook, Messenger), TikTok, WeChat, Instagram, QZone, Weibo, Twitter, Tumblr, Baidu Tieba, and LinkedIn would cause the greatest recession.
What a strange world we live in!

I'm with the Zoid on much of this, even if Curtis you seem pretty Extreme at Time, and he expresses Things that need to be said and heard.

Perhaps he is the Martin Luther of our Times. Worth reading up on what Luther actually objected to ...

But in reality Capitalism now is a Ponzi Scheme, and as Interest Rates threaten it is now beginning to unravel.

And that is what is hitting Bitcoin.

The Astrological Factors are more complicated. The Node is in action here I feel.

Thanks for the complement... but...

It's important to not allow your political masters to dictate your definitions. We in the USA haven't had capitalism for a very long time. The thing that people are being trained to hate is what can set people free. Authority abhors free markets and we don't currently have them. Big business has taken over government to rig markets in their favor and the banking system now uses currency as a means for control (using sanctions, fines for social control, taxes, etc). It is fascism, not capitalism. The end game of fascism is socialism / communism. Those saying that the USA is a capitalist country are liars. It started out that way after King George, but is no longer because freedom is the first thing to be extinguished in government's pursuit of control over a population.

The Ponzi schemes implemented by central banks are at the foundation of communism. The USA has been calling what they are doing capitalism incorrectly when it's been following communist policies for decades.

Governments form around means for control and they use labels very misleadingly. All governments seek to increase their power because at their base are humans driven to seek power and control. Freedom goes against government control, but slavery and collectivism serves it.

Coming up the second passage of the Saturn/Uranus square on June 14.
- May 23 Saturn R
- May 30 Mercury R
- June 10 A solar eclipse, in Gemini (Joe Biden's natal Sun/Venus is conjunct the US Mercury and transiting Pluto is conjunct his Progressed Mercury in a Profected Mercury Year (Gemini). SR Mercury conjunct natal Mars forming a T-Square with the Saturn/Uranus aspect of the year. We have already discussed our concern for his health mid-year in another post on Joe Biden's Profections)
- June 20 Neptune R
- June 22 Mercury D
- June 25 Jupiter R.
-------------------------------------------------------
"With Uranus, people tend to be early in their predictions. Their visions aren't necessarily wrong, but their timing can be off. With Saturn, on the other hand, people tend to be late. Saturn rules "delays." One party is early, and the other party is late, and the former leaves before the latter arrives. The result is not "acceptance." Now add Jupiter in Pisces to the mix, where people can become very euphoric ("irrational exuberance") about financial markets. We are not done yet. With Saturn/Uranus also doing its out of synch robotic dance during this same time, combined with a series of planetary stations (directional changes), euphoria can quickly turn to panic and hysteria. You might think: "What the (add your own slang here) is happening?"

With this in mind, get ready for a wild ride - it's starting. Have fun, responsibly. And don't put your lifestyle at risk on any trade unless you want to trade it in for another lifestyle."

The astrologer Patrick Watson has advocated a New York rather than London (or Dublin) location for the Bitcoin inception chart.



It is noteable that the Taurus full moon just before the crypto price plunge was almost exactly on this chart ASC.

keyboard keys not working right

The Etherium chart (located for London) has its Scorpio ASC opposing the full moon.

In October 2011, Joshua Davis wrote an article in The New Yorker where he said
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2011/10/10/the-crypto-currency
"When Satoshi Nakamoto created the first fifty bitcoins, now known as the “genesis block,” he permanently embedded a brief line of text into the data: “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.”
This is a reference to a Times of London article that indicated that the British government had failed to stimulate the economy. Nakamoto appeared to be saying that it was time to try something new. The text, hidden amid a jumble of code, was a sort of digital battle cry. It also indicated that Nakamoto read a British newspaper. He used British spelling (“favour,” “colour,” “grey,” “modernised”) and at one point described something as being “bloody hard.” An apartment was a “flat,” math was “maths,” and his comments tended to appear after normal business hours ended in the United Kingdom. In an initial post announcing bitcoin, he employed American-style spelling. But after that a British style appeared to flow naturally."

From what we know from the astro-cryptos.github.io site
**The date that Satoshi Nakamoto registered the domain bitcoin.org on August 18, 2008
**The presentation of the whitepaper on October 31, 2008
**The creation of the Genesis block on January 3, 2009 - 18:05:15 GMT
**The date when the first Bitcoin client was launched on January 9, 2009
**The first transaction between Satoshi Nakamoto and Hal Finney on January 12, 2009 - 03:30:25 GMT
IMO the first transaction seems to be an important date like the date of the genesis block creation. The first transaction chart could be taken as a sub-chart of the genesis block chart or directly as the transaction chart. Also, it could be taken to compare it with the genesis block chart.

I will make a clarification, for the creation of the genesis block and the first transaction we have the UTC time (GMT-0), but we don’t have the location. It’s unknown where Satoshi was on that date, it’s assumed that he was in London but we don’t know. I use the topocentric house system because for me it is the most accurate one but to know where the ascendant and the cusps of the houses are, we need to know the place where the genesis was created or where the first transaction occurred. I take London as the location because it seems the chart that works better.

It would be interesting to see where Patrick Watson got the location in New York.
And thank you Mark for bringing up water to the mill.

Hi Ouranos,

A lot of interesting dates to explore!

But I think the most popular is to use the genesis blockchain recorded as the 3rd of January 2009 at 18.15 UT. Still, you have a good point that the first transaction chart seems very relevant too. One could compare this to a 'first trade chart'' used for the floating of companies on a stock exchange.

Still, as you note there is no verified location for the creation of the Bitcoin blockchain.

Although in his interview with Chris Brennan , Robert Weinstein does opt for a London location for the genesis blockchain in the absence of anything definitive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdSLTMlLx8s

So all charts locations for this (including London) are speculative.

I personally, dont believe Satoshi Nakamoto is a real person and its most likely a pseudonym. Since Satoshi Nakamoto is so enigmatic it seems feasible to me the London newspaper was used as another evasion ploy to throw people even further off the true source. I think Patrick Watson thinks a group of New York financial experts had a role. New York is still the major global financial centre with both the NYSE and NASDAQ. But I will ask Patrick personally to clarify his take on this as I have only heard about his theory from another astrologer. His time is the New York equivalent the local time for the Bitcoin chart for London.

Mark
