I expected the stock market to become volatile with Uranus in Taurus. I should have seen the bitcoin (currency) craze coming. I didn’t but it’s here.
We’ve also seen the (Uranus-ruled) internet become a major force in the stock market in ways that change very quickly.
We have the reddit situation that came to the front with r/WallStreetBets and Gamestop . Uranus rules social or humanitarian groups. It certainly fits.
We’ve also seen the rise of trading app, Robinhood, which was extremely popular up until it it lost favor with it’s primary user base – “the reddit group”. Now it’s hated.
This is a good example of the Reversal of Fortune I’ve written about. Up one day. Down the next.
Last night I saw an ad for another trading app, “Stash”. I laughed. What a brilliant name. Get yer weed stock on Stash – okay!
But what really stuck me was the bar you had to reach in order to use the app. There is a minimum FIVE DOLLAR investment to get going. If you have five bucks, you begin “trading” today! Trading is like crack. But besides that, I wondered if there were an age limit.
I mean three year old have iPads, perhaps more than one. Should they start trading stocks too? Grandma need not worry about shopping for goods. She can just transfer some cash into her grandkids brokerage account – we’ll all be rich!
I searched regarding age restrictions and as it turns out, the law varies from state to state. Most feel investing in the stock market is a form of gambling. How quick can we get these kids involved, hmm?
Having Libra, I can see the other side of this issue. I’m not really judging this because it’s painful to Libra to come down on one side or the other. But I’ll you something (astrologically) interesting about it…
The last time there was a stellium in Taurus of this magnitude was back when Beanie Babies were a thing. I had a front row seat for that drama and tracked the astrology closely.
Taurus rules possessions (and money). It’s the natural collector of the zodiac.
If you’re interested in trends, you can catch a glimpse here with this post.
I believe, Martha Stewart, was the “influencer” who spurred the UN-natural collectors to start collecting, though we didn’t have that label back then. Now we have, Elon Musk, Roaring Kitty and others, influencing “the masses”. That’s a phrase that can probably use an update. If you have one, let me know and I’ll edit.
Point here is that there are people who a naturally drawn to invest in the stock market. I am seeing legions of people buy their first stock (or coin), the same way I saw people who never collected anything in their life, all the sudden decide they should pay this area of life A LOT of attention.
What do you see out there?
