The New Moon in Scorpio, SOLAR ECLIPSE, November 3, 2013 - Chart from the point of view of Wall Street and the NYSE. Note: When reading a chart for the NYSE, my interpretations are modified to take into consideration location and the economic and political conditions that impact the market. The meanings of the planets and house are adapted to these circumstances.
As Above - So Below - Stress from the challenging aspect Pluto square Uranus keeps things heated up politically at home, and world wide. Economically, this difficult energy in concert with any combination of transiting planets, has been driving global markets on a wild ride. On any particular day investors react as one crisis follows another.
"This week brings the 4th exact hit of Uranus square Pluto ... and with it, an increased danger of turning the tide... This week's Uranus square Pluto aspect, the 4th exact hit in a rare series of 7, is likely to mark the start of an important turning point, though it might not become obvious for a few months." - The Eye of Ra, week beginning October 28. by Randall Ashbourne
The Solar Eclipse strongly suggests an overall increased volatility in the financial market. Near the date of the eclipse, before and after, there will be a marked increase in volatility. Eclipses have coincided with market reversals in either direction, and with Mercury just barely past the first half of its retrograde period, the chances of extreme volatility increases.
Whenever there is an eclipse the influence of energy is intensified; and longer lasting if in a fixed sign such as Scorpio.

"Fortunate or unfortunate events follow according as to whether benefics are prominent or malifics, and whether the aspects among the planets are good or evil." H.S. Green
The Solar Eclipse New Moon is in the twelfth house involved in a stellium (more than three planets conjunct). The Sun, Moon, Saturn, Mercury and the North Node are conjunct in 12th house. These five are sextile the rulers of the Scorpio rising chart, Mars and Pluto, activating the Uranus-Pluto square. (Though not shown in the chart above, the North Node is at 7° 21' Scorpio and the South Node is at 7°21'. Taurus. An eclipse is always characterized by a conjunction to the Nodes of the Moon.)
Events governed by the 12th house will come to the forefront this lunar month - The twelfth house is a place of shadows, secrets and hidden enemies. An eclipse in the 12th house suggests discredit and misfortune in areas that are governed by the 12th house. More scandalous revelations regarding the National Security Agency surveillance may be revealed which may have a disastrous financial impact on U.S. technology companies. Presently, greater transparency is being called for from companies such as Google, Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook. Their role in NSA surveillance has been questioned and trust has been lost. US technology companies are likely to suffer the backlash from any further NSA revelations.
Mercury rx in the twelfth house - Internet activity has much to do with the 12th house, and wherever Mercury is found in the chart there is much activity. Reforms to the healthcare site need to be reviewed and the site re-done. More information will be revealed regarding why the site has so many problems.
Note!"... The middle of the (Mercury retrograde period) will be on Thursday, October 31. Any market that has not made a cycle turn around the retrograde date of October 21 is likely much to do so within 1-2 days of the center of the retrograde zone, which is October 31." Raymond Merriman
Saturn in Scorpio in the twelfth house - Trouble due to mal-administration and the people responsible suffer consequences.
