In Heaven, as on Earth, and the Financial Markets (UPDATED)

Today (September 22) is the autumn equinox. Early tomorrow morning, we will have the full moon, the Harvest Moon. We also have some unusual planets accompanying the full moon - Jupiter and Uranus.

These should be enough to cause some unusual events on earth, shouldn't they?

As if as a follow-up the Federal Reserve New York Bank will be conducting another POMO (permanent open market operation) on Friday, buying up Treasuries from the likes of PIMCO which clearly front-runs the Fed as a matter of course.

I will let you know if I figure out this astrological portent.


From Wikipedia:

Jupiter: Astrologically, Jupiter is associated with the principles of growth, expansion, prosperity, and good fortune.

Uranus: Astrologically modern interpretations associate Uranus with the principles of genius, individuality, new and unconventional ideas, discoveries, electricity, inventions, and the beginnings of the industrial revolution.

Some august planets to accompany Moon...

Even the NASA weighs in, calling this "Super Harvest Moon", a must-watch celestial event!!

Usually, the Harvest Moon arrives a few days to weeks before or after the beginning of fall. It's close, but not a perfect match. The Harvest Moon of 2010, however, reaches maximum illumination a mere six hours after the equinox. This has led some astronomers to call it the "Harvestest Moon" or a "Super Harvest Moon." There hasn't been a comparable coincidence since Sept 23, 1991, when the difference was about 10 hours, and it won't happen again until the year 2029.
