The skewed graph of prices of Crude Oil in near future

Crude oil is behaving like a celebrity and has been in the media everyday since a fortnight as it touches newer all time highs almost daily. Everyone, from the common man to the Heads of State of all countries, is worried.

How will this basic commodity behave is the perennial question in the mind of one and all . Goldman Sachs has predicted 149 USD per barrel for this product and may go high say other technical analysts for this product. Ganesha looks at the stars and their motions as per Vedic Indian astrology and analyzes the phenomenon of the rising crude oil prices and he says:

Crude oil, a product from beneath the surface of Earth, is considered to be ruled by Shani (Saturn).

Any hard aspect (Square, in conjunct, opposition) to Saturn by any natural malefic planet usually tends to increase the prices of crude oil. Any soft aspect (trine, sextile) to Saturn by a naturally beneficial planet usually tends to decrease the prices of crude oil.

Let us have a look at the planetary positions as on June 09, 2008 at 18:32 hours

Aries -
Taurus - Sun, Mercury (Combust & Retrograde), Venus (Combust)
Gemini -
Cancer - Mars, Ketu
Leo - Saturn, Moon
Virgo
Libra
Scorpio
Sagittarius - Jupiter (Retrograde)
Capricorn - Rahu
Aquarius
Pisces

As per D-9 (Navamsa) the position of the planets is as follows

Aries -
Taurus -
Gemini - Saturn,
Cancer - Mercury
Leo - Venus, Sun
Virgo - Rahu
Libra
Scorpio
Sagittarius - Jupiter
Capricorn - Mars
Aquarius
Pisces - Ketu

As per the D-9 chart, Mars made an opposition with Saturn till June 04, 2008 which is an indicator of a bullish trend on crude oil. However, as Jupiter also made an opposition to Saturn, it put a check on the mischief of Mars the moment Mars left Gemini D-9 and entered Cancer in D-9, it showed its metal as it formed an in-conjunct aspect with Saturn.

The above was an astrological reasoning for what happened.

Now what?

Well, Mars will enter Aquarius D-9 on June 10, 2008, forming a trine aspect with Saturn while Jupiter still will be trine with Saturn and sextile with Mars. This indicates that the crude oil prices may reduce, even if not considerably. Ganesha feels that from 10th June the crude oil prices may cool down and come under check.

One may find a depressive market of crude oil on June 11, 2008 too.

On the 12th Jupiter enters Scorpio in D-9 . This will heat up crude oil rates again till Saturn enters Cancer in D-9 on June 25, 2008. From then on we can expect the crude oil markets to cool down.

Conclusively Ganesha feels that the crude oil markets in the very near term are going to heat up and may not lose steam, though a considerable hike in prices is not on the anvil.
