If last month taught us anything, I think it showed us how this is all a joke.

Crypto emerged as an alternative way of managing wealth designed to avoid some of the pitfalls of the traditional financial system. By removing intermediaries, whether that be physical banks or invasive requirements to open accounts, crypto has represented liberation. In a lot of ways, this has been lighthearted since day one, with a rebellious anti-establishment spirit embodied by the cypherpunks.

Alongside more mainstream financial meme events such as the Gamestop short squeeze, I believe that the immense seriousness of the past year has led us to seek comedic relief in other areas of our mundane life. As decentralization provides us with more choices in our day-to-day lives, this bleeds into financial choices, and naturally, these are becoming meme-ified.

Dogecoin has long since been thought of as funny and adorable, and it only makes sense that this coin come to rise amidst TikTok investors. However, the incredible volume of other memecoins, whether legitimate projects or not, on the Binance Smart Chain network in particular is not only shocking but fucking hilarious. In my opinion, it’s great that a generation is seeing an alternate path to creating and preserving wealth and having fun with it. Of course, many will end up losing money in small-cap projects that rug pull or go to zero. However, I think the overall effect is a net positive, bringing lighthearted exploration to many of the youth as they gain financial literacy. And perhaps, right now, financial literacy is about how to use PancakeSwap with enough slippage to process a transaction.

Do stay safe and mindful as you engage with experimental financial decisions, however. To those new to the cryptocurrency space, I highly recommend against engaging with memecoins, other than perhaps Dogecoin, if you so please. Even I am learning through mistakes and my own idiocy in my first crypto bull cycle, but I hope to gain much more than I lose, particular in knowledge.

Enjoy Taurus season. It seems bullish so far.

April Overview for Bitcoin

The month begins on a sharper note than the rest will likely follow. On May 1st, Mars in Cancer will oppose the natal Bitcoin Capricorn mars and square the natal Bitcoin Aries moon.

Mars is the principle of market confidence in financial astrology and general aggression in astrology itself. It is exalted, or highly supported, in the sign of Capricorn, an earth sign concerned with step-by-step climbing to the top of the ladder of success. Mars’s heat is well-suited for the endurance and tempered by earth’s coolness. So in the opposite sign of Cancer, a water sign which can be more circular than direct in its actions, Mars is often more passive-aggressive and moody. This is not “bad”, but it’s already troublesome, so when it is opposing Bitcoin’s own Mars, a planet which can represent challenge when in difficult aspects such as the opposition (180º angle), is a clear warning signal. This might be a nuke/shakeout from overleveraged traders being greedy.


However, by May 3rd, it looks like we are back in the game. The transiting Sun in Taurus will trine Bitcoin’s own Capricorn Sun at 13º. The Sun is another assertive, masculine energy, so I am looking to a rally back up on the 3rd. The 8th has transiting Venus in Taurus trine Bitcoin’s natal Jupiter in Capricorn, and this looks even better. Venus is in its home sign of Taurus, where the planet of wealth can be very favorably supportive. In a 120º harmonious aspect to Jupiter, the other planet of positive significations. This is a very exciting day.


May 10th continues the bullish trajectory as transiting Venus in Gemini will trine Bitcoin’s natal Mercury in Aquarius. Mercury often signifies news, and in this favorable alignment, I expect “good news” on the 10th as a result.


May 11th is the New Moon in Taurus, and since New Moons reliably coincide with local tops, I see a high point again on the 11th before a correction in the following days.


May 16th, Jupiter in Pisces conjoins the natal BTC Venus as transiting Mars opposes the Bitcoin Sun exactly. With Jupiter conjoining Bitcoin’s venus, this is what i have been excited about. Both Venus and Jupiter are benefics, or planets that indicate positive growth and expansion. They are both dignified in Pisces, with Jupiter comfortably at home in its own sign, and Venus empowered by exaltation. Having transiting Jupiter cross Bitcoin’s Venus in Pisces and providing sextiles to Bitcoin’s planets in Capricorn and eventually a nice opposition to its Saturn in Virgo throughout this month is extremely bullish.


However, also on the 16th, Mars in Cancer will oppose Bitcoin’s Sun in Capricorn, which is harmful. With multiple indicators of extreme surge but also this indicator of extreme challenge, I expect the 16th to be very volatile, with perhaps an all-time high and then a fast correction.

By the 20th, things seem to be back to more straightforwardly bullish. The Sun in Taurus will trine Bitcoin’s natal Jupiter in Capricorn, a signal of strength. Then on the 21st, the Sun in Gemini will square Bitcoin’s natal Venus in Pisces, which honestly could be a “too good to be true” signal that may end up with a correction as well. May 24th has Venus in Gemini square natal BTC Uranus in Pisces, and this looks like another extremely bullish signal that may involve a sharp pullback. Venus is favorable, and Uranus is volatile. Squares are aspects of tension, so though it involves favorability from Venus, I would be hesitant with margin around the 24th. However, with Mars trining Bitcoin’s natal Uranus the next day on the 25th, with Mars’s indications of market conviction, perhaps the Uranian volatility is consistently upward.


The 26th has a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, essentially a supercharged Full Moon. Full Moons are reliable local bottom signals. I expect a correction into this day, followed by an uptrend afterwards.


And as the month ends with Venus trining Bitcoin’s Neptune, an effortlessly harmonious aspect, things will most likely even out by the 27th when this is exact.

  • 11th: New Moon in Taurus

  • May 14th - Venus in Gemini sextile natal ETH Sun in Leo

May Overview for Ethereum


May looks extremely bullish for Ethereum, aside from what looks like a stark correction mid-month. Frankly, this looks so bullish with these aspects that I am concerned. I vetted this month a few times to see if I was missing any stark unfavorables, but it seems that this really is a euphoric month for ETH.


We open on May 5th with Venus in Taurus trining Ethereum’s Moon in Capricorn, a favorable 120º aspect of harmony. May 9th follows that, with Venus now in Gemini, square to Ethereum’s own Venus in Virgo, This feels “too good to be true” and may follow with a correction back to a usual trend.


May 11th is the New Moon in Taurus, and since New Moons reliably coincide with local tops, I see a high point again on the 11th before a correction in the following days.

May 14th includes another slightly favorable aspect as Venus in Gemini will then sextile Ethereum’s Sun in Leo at 14º.


However, May 15th has some largely mixed astrological indicators. Transiting Mars (trouble) will oppose Ethereum’s natal Pluto (upheaval), which does not look favorable at all. However, Jupiter will have recently entered Pisces, leading it to oppose Ethereum’s natal Venus, a favorable aspect. Overall this looks highly volatile, leading me to assume a stark correction while on a very bullish uptrend.


By the 16th, Venus in Gemini will square Ethereum’s natal Neptune, a connection between two planets which can indicate euphoria. This looks overly favorable, so I would expect a correction following this, simply by how euphoric it appears. May 20th then has Venus in Gemini sextile Ethereum’s natal Mercury in Leo.


The 26th has a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, essentially a supercharged Full Moon. Full Moons are reliable local bottom signals. I expect a correction into this day, followed by an uptrend afterwards.


May 31st has Venus in Gemini sextiling Ethereum’s natal Jupiter in Leo. With so many abundantly obvious favorables, I am almost too cautious! Even compared to Bitcoin, there are fewer red flags. I expect pullbacks along the way, but an incredibly bullish uptrend, especially on the days listed.

May Overview for Doge


I think this May may be the month we hit $1 for Dogecoin.


May 4th opens with a very strong trine from transiting Venus, at home in Taurus, trining the natal Venus in Capricorn for the DOGE chart. I am extremely bullish on this date, and the “May the 4th be with you” tagline is meme-enough to have me looking ot this date for a possible $1. However, we will need to example technicals that day to see if this looks in the cards, or just another subpar pump.


May 7th looks less favorable, with the Sun in Taurus opposing Dogecoin’s own Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn represents boundaries and therefore support/resistance levels, which I expect to depend on as indicators strongly during this time. It is not an overly favorable alignment, though it looks reliable for a certain support range.


May 10th holds mixed indicators. In a less favorable context, transiting Mars in Cancer will oppose its natal Pluto in Capricorn, indicating a breakdown of price, while Venus in Gemini will opposite its natal Mercury in Sagittarius, which looks like positive news or a favorable announcement. Perhaps we plummet but an Elon tweet saves the day and pumps us again.

May 11th is the New Moon in Taurus, and since New Moons reliably coincide with local tops, I see a high point again on the 11th before a correction in the following days.


May 13th holds more upward consistency, with Venus in Gemini trining natal DOGE Moon in Aquarius, and on the 14th, the transiting Sun in Taurus trines DOGE’s own Venus in Capricorn. These two days look favorable again.


May 20th may then hold a top signal for a pump as Venus in Gemini opposes DOGE’s Sun in Sagittarius. And finally, May 24th looks like an aggressive downside, with Mars crossing DOGE’s Jupiter in Cancer. Mars (trouble) is crossing Jupiter (growth), which I propose looks very unfavorable.


The 26th has a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, essentially a supercharged Full Moon. Full Moons are reliable local bottom signals. I expect a correction into this day, followed by an uptrend afterwards.


In-between these dates, I assume we flatline and consolidate.


Overall Trends I’m Watching in the Space


It’s apparent we’re in a bubble, if not bubble-esque time in the NFT space, but looking at some astrological indicators and just current themes in the space, I don’t expect this to pop this spring. Or even early summer. The bull market overall looks so strong this May into July for Bitcoin and Ethereum, and even the astrology I was looking at for NFT research, that I think it will last for awhile. I am looking to an August “pop” (or at least reality check) as indicator such as the nodal return of the chart of Colored Coins (explained in this quick TikTok video) symbolizes being “thrown for a loop” or having to lead an uncomfortable rough patch before returning back to normal. Therefore I’m still pretty bullish on NFT’s, even with ridiculous top signals. This weekend, at lunch with my father and his friends, they brought up Beeple’s recent $69 million sale and the rise of celebrity NFT’s. Entertaining for me and a bit worrisome for my bags as all the waifus I bought go to zero in my OpenSea account. But overall, I’m not anxiously awaiting tragedy to the NFT market right now. Too bullish overall in the space.

I’m biased because I love DeFi in particular, but I see it as comparable. DeFi summer may have been a notable trend, but DeFi is around to stay given the nature of where finance is headed. NFT’s aren’t going anywhere, either, but the hype may turn elsewhere once there’s some more sobering transits this August.


News Headlines


Major Payment Processors Integrate Crypto


One of the biggest areas of progress in the crypto space has been mainstream technical adoption. PayPal, for example, will let US users pay with bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, and bitcoin cash, which isn’t technically allowing for the spending of crypto, but rather, the conversion of crypto into dollars immediately upon requesting to transact. I myself would not be converting my crypto holdings into dollars for regular spending right now, but this is bullish news overall.


Visa also recently announced they’re using USDC, a stablecoin, to settle payments. This means they’ll be using crypto within their network. A stablecoin is a crypto token that is pegged to the value of a currency, and in this case, USDC is correlated to the value of the US dollar. This means that the value of USDC follows the value of the dollar and allows cryptocurrency tokens to represent dollar values. Personally, I like to keep substantial US dollar stablecoins, such as USDC or USDT, on-hand so that I can buy dips (or memecoins) more easily than having to wait for bank transfers. Therefore, Visa allowing for transaction settlement in stablecoins is another highly bullish news point for the crypto space.


Coinbase Direct Listing


As per the hype, Coinbase finally released its public direct listing. This is slightly different than a traditional IPO, as direct listing sells shares directly to the public. In an IPO, new shares are created instead. With the direct listing, it is cheaper, but there is also no guarantee that shares sell. However, given the hype, that possible downside is negligible for Coinbase at this point, so in my opinion, the lack of intermediary was just easier and representative of the efficiency of the crypto space overall.


Perhaps the $380/share price was overvalued, but nowadays, it seems like being “overvalued” is normal for many public listings. $COIN reached $429 before consolidating back down into the low $300 range for now.

Dogecoin and Other Memecoins


The real star news of this past month was the insanity of Dogecoin and the related overall memecoin movement. For those unclear about the origins of Doge, it started as a fun joke in 2013 to provide a transactional alternative to traditional cash. It was partially developed from the Litecoin protocol, but today has no active team or technical development. It is truly a memecoin: simply holding value based on those who believe in it for the memes or for the potential that perhaps another team will come around to technologically make use of it. But mostly, it’s for the memes.
