I think we’re going to experience a general market correction April 5th, followed by a crypto market correction April 9th/10th.
April 5th has transiting Mars in Gemini closely square to the New York Stock Exchange’s very own Mars in Virgo. This is very worrisome and has me looking to a correction that Monday.
Coupled with that, April 9th has transiting Mars in Gemini square to Bitcoin’s own natal Saturn in Virgo. Squares from Mars are large warning transits for unfavorable price dips.
Dropping in: “Unfavorable” generally means price decrease while “favorable” generally means price increase. As someone who is looking to buy dips myself, I look forward to unfavorable transits! They are not “bad”. However, for the buy low, sell high philosophy, they would be unideal times for selling. Buying and selling depend on your investment rationale. I am talking about upward or downward movement.
What Markets am I Looking at for Aries Season?
Aries, being the astrological new year, is the sign of the Ram. It is a cardinal fire sign, charged with the birth of a new seasonal cycle. Thus, many of its inherent qualities deal with the base hierarchy of needs and the self.
The first area of growth I’m expecting is in value stocks. We’ve already heard this reiterated by a recent call to sell-off tech stocks amidst inflation, as tech stocks are inherently deflationary, and move towards value stocks. Value stocks are geared towards long-term performance, while growth stocks are groundbreaking in the more near future (think Tesla). I expect value stocks such as Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson to pick up during this time.
I also expect telehealth stocks to fare well. As the economy reopens and people need more accident or movement-based health treatments, telehealth seems like a correlated asset to rise. It is the future of medicine, and reopening the in-person economy will still cater towards this more efficient medicine option. Teladoc is one I am watching.
Finally, fitness stocks should do great during Aries season, given it is a cardinal fire sign directly associated with physical exertion. The number one on my mind is Peloton. Even if things reopen, I don’t expect Peloton performance to slow down.
