Karen Starich is an Astrologer who uses her unique approach to analyze stock market trends and commodities, including gold and silver. Her study and interest in astrology began in 1992 when she started an art business and collaborated with an internationally recognized astrologer to create an inception chart for her budding new corporation. The art business took off immediately, and true to the astrology chart for the incorporation, surpassed estimates and doubled in size within a year.
Karen spent years working with other astrologers, learning the art of interpretation, and applying those skills to interpret charts for clients and investments. After the market correction in 2008, Karen began to post articles on Fool.com to illustrate the transits and the potential effects they could bring to the markets and the precious metals sector. In April 2011 Karen wrote a blog on fool.com accurately predicting the take down in the silver market on April 28, 2011. She wrote a follow-up on May 11th detailing the turn in the silver market below:
An upward change tomorrow May 12th. I call tomorrow “the tell” or sign that a change is coming for the bulls. The bigger event May 16-17 when Jupiter hits 26* Aries is what I call a check mate to the Bears…so watch for that. May 17th through first week of June is a tuning point for silver that is positive. This will be a significant event to mark a change and planting the seeds (seeds of change for silver/gold backed currency) for years to come.
Looks like the Comex is not entirely in control of the situation and will maneuver in strategic ways, possibly with further margin restrictions, watch for that mid June.
Mid June looks like it’s going to be a wild ride at the Comex again.
Karen joined Zentrader in June 2011 to become a contributing writer, using astrology to focus on upcoming trends in the rare earth sector, commodities, and the markets. While writing for Zentrader Karen accurately honed in on the correction and bullish trends for silver and gold and also wrote detailed analysis of the conflict with China regarding rare earth exports. In September she wrote an article for Zentrader that outlined a setback for rare earth that would carry into February 24th-25th of 2012 leading to another potential legal challenge to China’s export policies. On February 24, 2012 rare earth stocks took another dramatic correction, exactly as Karen predicted five months before! Then on March 13, 2012 President Obama announced a challenge to China’s policy on rare earth exports in a rare public statement at the White House. Karen accurately predicted the future event months before it happened. Below is an excerpt from the Zentrader article:
September 20, 2011: Market Astrology, Rare Earth Controversy
This is a continuation from the July efforts of the WTO lawsuit claiming China broke international law when it curbed its rare earth exports. I wrote about the outcome for those events(read article here) that China would not relent in a move that would lead to further price increases. Jupiter is moving retrograde to the same point October 6th as it was in July, where the WTO filed the lawsuit, and inconjunct China’s Sun. The transit suggests an obligation and a shift of plans on China’s part and they will most likely make some adjustments that are beneficial to the U.S. However Mars will conjoin China’s Mars/Pluto beginning October 12th which will most likely be an aggressive move to force China to change their policies. October 1st – 4th and again October 10th watch for potential increases in rare earth stocks but a word of caution, there is a lot of stress on this sector. The conflict with China continues into February 2012 where there could be another lawsuit. Watch for the dates February 24-25 for news regarding an international move against China’s rare earth export restrictions.

Nice call Karen. I guess this is the proverbial double dip by going back to the NFLX trough. ~GauthamKaren, very much looking forward to your next update. I’m not a big trader, but trades I entered based on your updates have produced gains. Have gut feeling coming week may be pretty wild, you’ve mentioned Dec 21st several times & looking forward to your insight on that. I’ve only been subscriber for short time but very happy with your work. Keep up the good work & hope the holidays are good to you & your family. ~Joel
Thanks for the valuable information your subscription provides. I feel that it gives a definite edge when it comes to timing the market moves. I went short before your call for a correction on the 22nd, and I am up 30% so far. Looking forward to more gains… ~Karen
Great call on NFLX. I was reading about a bunch of downgrades after the stock is down 35% overnight and has fallen even more lately and I was thinking about your call again – seriously great call. Well ahead of the curve. ~Gautham
I have to admit I can’t wait til the next post to see what updated insight you have on this crazy financial world. ~Mark
Thanks for your thorough, informative and valuable updates. ~Jim
Her calls in regards to the stock market have been just as prescient. No motive here but I want to give credit when credit is due. ~Rob
I was looking at call options because I wanted to buy NFLX when it hit $125, and after talking with Karen she advised me that this was going to drop to around the $50-60 level before any significant bounce. I decided to scrap the trade and I’m glad I did as it fell to $74. ~Jeff
Just a few words to say that I am fascinated with your work using astrology, I believe in what you are doing . I am still working on the dates because they could vary, and I am playing options, so I have to be careful with that – but you are doing a great job. Thanks, I appreciate your work. ~Marina
