In 2012 there have been a series of transits that have impacted both the incorporation chart and the first trade chart that suggest the new technology is being blocked by potential outside influences that may be stalling the release of newer more advanced technology. This could include the new television that was in news reports and suddenly is no longer a story.
In April 2012 Mars retrograde made an opposition to Uranus (rules technology) in the incorporation chart. The transit lasted almost a month and the stock plunged. Saturn (diminishing) peaked in a conjunction to Mercury (sales distribution) on September 24th while Uranus (technology and sudden changes) made an inconjunct to the moon (sentiment of investors) and wrecked more havoc on the stock. These influences in the astrology usually don’t reverse instantly and suggest there are hidden forces working behind the scenes.
Pluto is transiting the 12th house of the IPO chart while squaring Jupiter (the stock) and Saturn suggesting an ultimatum could be threatening the leadership of the company and stock analysts may loose faith in Apple’s ability to move higher.
We could see a pullback for Apple December 3rd or 4th while Mars is square Mars and news about a possible change in leadership near December 6th. The stock could fall further December 16th – 22nd while Jupiter is retrograde and afflicting both Saturn and the Sun in the Apple chart. Mars will square the nodes December 27th-30th and could indicate negative news or downgrades for the stock. At the same time Pluto will square Saturn and suggests institutional funds may start selling the stock. Jeff has suggested Apple could pull back further than the recent low. With the current astrology for the company it is possible to see a long drawn out pullback that gets to those levels.
