Financial Astrology: Dow Transports

By Karen Starich

The sector that is perhaps the red flag for the economy is the transportation sector which is currently lagging the S&P. Pluto is still retrograde and in my view creating an undertow in the economy that is slowly dragging the economy backwards. Looking at the astrology for key stocks in the transportation sector shows the potential for a setback in supply and demand with potential layoffs coming, in addition to other cost saving measures including price increases to consumers, which could possibly lead to more inflationary pressure. There is a theme of "decrease" with Jupiter in Gemini (transportation) making harsh oppositions in many of the charts I reviewed in the transportation sector. I'll cover two stocks I like on the short side later on in the update.
