"While the volatility continues the US markets are not coming out of the recession fears early due to the continued impact of transit Jupiter and transit Saturn. It is likely to give continued volatility and stress to other financial and commodity markets accross the world in the year 2008."

"The applying aspect of transit Jupiter to natal Venus does have the potential to keep the stock market volatile in June, while [other aspects] are still being felt. The rest of the year is likely to be characterised by increased volatility and concerns about the US financial market."

"The continued impact of transit Jupiter on transit Saturn; persisting influence of transit Rahu/Ketu axis in USA SAMVA chart and then the transit influence of Rahu/Ketu on transit Jupiter shows continued financial difficulties/setbacks for US upto the end of February, 2009....The sub period of Saturn shows that recovery of the financial setback is likely to take a lot of time."
December 23, 2008 (DJIA 8420)
"In the first seven months [of 2009] the things remain challenging for the financial sectors of the world…Things start taking positive outlook from August, 2009, onwards."
On March 9, 2009 the financial market reached a low, and was quite depressed, with the DJIA at 6547. On June 2, 2009. the US financial market was still quite low, but has recovered an impressive 33% from the March lows, with the DJIA at 8741.
Currently, there are some transits that are bothersome, but not of a major concern.
- Transit Rahu is at the present time exactly afflicting natal 1st lord Moon in the chart. Given the natal strength of the Moon and the fleeting close aspect, this would be a relatively smaller disturbance. That said, the lunar nodes go stationary shortly at around 6° Capricorn and Cancer, just over 1° orb from the degree of the Moon.
- Transit Saturn as 8th lord of obstacles is now moving away from its around 1° orb wide stationary conjunction of the most effective point of the 2nd house of wealth and status. This aspect has, as expected, not had a major effect on the US stock market, but served to maintain the concerns.
- Transit 6th lord Jupiter is in Aquarius and the 8th house until end July 2009. This is expected to bring obstacles to the indications of Jupiter, including financial stability.
