April 24 – 28, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

USA: Mar 18 – Sep 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 14-18 and Aug 18-22) and Jan 16 – Mar 14, 2018 (esp Feb 15-16)— hopeful mood about sales of or new agreements related to oil, chemicals, movies/music, beverages, and pharmaceuticals (esp. shipments [oil, chemicals, pharma] or dissemination via media [video, music]). Additionally or alternatively, deception or lack of clarity about agreements and spread of information in those areas. The hopeful expectations may be due to the lack of details or unrealistic representation of the situation. Time when shipments or dissemination of related services and products may be easier than usual; at the same time, there may be confusion about the exact contract details, details on how to implement things technically in practice, quality of products, accuracy of the information, etc. Favorable time for setting up shipments over water and disseminating info via video/music. Also, there may be an increase in religious/spiritual movements (incl. any alternative medicine-related ones or movements focused on something that is ephemeral/unreal) — we may see increased communications about the related topics (e.g., religion, spiritual movements, deceptive info, etc.) on social media, in the news, and at social gatherings.

China: Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Busy news week with surprises, unusual developments, unexpected alliances/agreements, and possibly accidents (esp. involving cars, airplanes, wind, and fire). Some new events related to cars, airplanes, electricity, IT, sales [esp. e-sales], and military campaigns over air. There may be some excitement in the air (literally and figuratively).

USA: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14) — Unexpected developments related to international partnerships (e.g., new agreements begin on a short notice, old agreements are suddenly cancelled, unusual partnerships are formed, etc.), unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation (esp. domestic and/or related to airplanes, cars, and phones) or problems related to businesses in those areas. Also, surprising developments related to media, telecoms, IT companies, and sales (e.g., sudden start or ending of some program, unusual new direction for a business, problems with electric supply, etc.). The reason for the developments will likely be some domestic policies, banks’ assets (e.g., sudden changes affect banks’ willingness to invest in businesses related to communication/transportation or IT), or real estate/land (e.g., some company suddenly moves). Also, increased possibility of sudden air campaigns or excessive winds.

Syria: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14 — Curiously, prediction above about unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation, as well as sudden air campaigns or excessive winds also applies to Syria (chart for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). This is because Mercury (wind, air, airplanes, cars, communication, transportation, etc.) in Syria’s chart opposes Mercury in the natal chart of the US. So, at this time transiting Uranus (sudden events, accidents, electricity, revolution, strange developments, aerospace, etc.) will square (problems/breakdowns) Mercury positions in both the US and Syria’s chart.

———————

APR 24, 2017 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%). The mood may be practical/cautious but also slightly optimistic.

Apr 24-25 — News or reports that will be evaluated carefully. The data may be about military projects or some new initiatives/programs, probably in the area of communication or transportation. The review may be due to new data or adjusted figures; we could also hear about some new surprising initiatives or a sudden ending of recently announced programs. The data/reports will likely receive a positive evaluation, esp. from authoritative/established international entities — for ex., the numbers are solid, new programs are slowly improving, there is steady (albeit slow) growth, etc.

USA: Apr 24-26 — Concerns about banks and financial organizations over some announcements, agreements, or reports. There may be surprises, esp. related to media, communication or transportation (esp. aerospace, cars, electric vehicles, and airplanes — mostly fast-moving and/or electric-powered vehicles), power grid, IT, electronic data processing, e-sales, and telecoms. These surprises or news may negatively affect financial organizations by somehow undermining banks’ earnings, putting doubts on the security of cash held by banks, or introducing concerns about stability of financial organizations due to unpredictability of the market. Some cutting edge new project may seem very exciting, but seen as undermining banks or financial stability.

APR 25, 2017 (TUE): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%). Super busy news day with surprises, unusual developments, unexpected alliances/agreements, and possibly accidents (esp. involving cars, airplanes, wind, and fire). The market will probably reverse to up as attention will shift to some new events (likely, related to cars, airplanes, electricity, IT, sales [esp. e-sales], and military campaigns over air). There may be some excitement in the air (literally and figuratively) — esp. at the close time (3-4pm EST); the words that come to mind are “mad rush.” Surprises may involve women or have a strong emotional effect — news about women who are somehow unusual, unexpected events involving women, women who are related to transportation (airlines, cars, etc.), emotional news about travel by car/air, etc.

APR 26, 2017 (WED): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%). Greater than usual market move is possible, esp. early in the day.

Also a super busy news day with the same themes as Tue, but without the focus on women and emotions. Instead, there may be focus on a power couple or a well-known individual/leader who somehow has balanced male/female characteristics (e.g., a man who is not very macho, or, a strong woman who is not seen as very emotional).

Additionally, on Apr 26-27 — focus on some new or military-related financial project, military spending, or evaluation of how worthwhile some new financial or military project is.

APR 27, 2017 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

Another busy news day with the same themes as Tue, but without the focus on power couples or leaders. That is, mostly focus on communication and transportation (esp. aerospace, cars, electric vehicles, and airplanes) — new data, new projects, re-evaluation of old data, accidents, and/or military-related events.

APR 28, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

Another busy news day with the same themes as Tue, but without the focus on power couples or leaders. That is, mostly focus on communication and transportation (esp. aerospace, cars, electric vehicles, and airplanes) — new data, new projects, re-evaluation of old data, accidents, and/or military-related events.

USA: Increased focus on aerospace, airplanes, electric power, IT, telecoms, etc. In the morning, we may hear about some agreements or partnerships, possibly military-related.

>>>> Glance ahead, global (repeat from last week):

North Korea: Last week, I saw that transiting Mercury (rhetoric) opposed (tension) the country’s Mars (military) (chart for Sept 10, 1948). However, based on transits alone, there wasn’t anything serious going on. The next Mercury opposition to NK’s Mars will take place on May 20, 2017 (Sat). At the same time, transiting Mars (aggression/threat/military) will oppose the country’s Jupiter (international relationships/expansion). It is quite possible that we will see another escalation of tensions around then. Given other global stressful transits between Mars and Neptune (lies, confusion, chemicals, navy) and then Saturn (limitations, losses, restrictions, death, collapse of structures, earthquakes) in May (see below), it could be somewhat stressful time globally. Also, May through mid-July, transiting Jupiter (expansion, luck, international relations, crossing borders) will be hovering over China’s Neptune and Mercury, so China may experience increased focus on its navy and airplanes (as well as oil, chemicals, etc.) — there may be growth or expansion of some sort and/or increased international involvement.

Syria: Apr 17 – Aug 20, 2017 (esp. mid-June 2017); Feb 14 – Apr 11, 2018 (esp. mid-March 2018); and Sep 1, 2018 – Feb 11, 2-19 (esp. 2nd week of Oct, 2018 and 2nd week of Jan, 2019) — Neptune (deception, confusion, oil, chemicals, water, navy, etc.) will conjunct (intensification, important developments, blending of energies) Syria’s Moon (security, nourishment, mother, women, emotion) ruler of the 10th house of leadership/government in the 5th house of stock market/risks/procreation/children. This could indicate increased focus on the areas above (e.g., leaders, children, and/or security) with themes of confusion or possibly poisoning. For ex., poisoning or chemical exposure of food, children, or mothers; confusion or lies about leadership; emotional confusion; increased drug use; increased floods; risky activities related to oil or chemicals; oil-for-food trading; etc. (Syria’s chart is for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). With Bashar Al Assad’s (http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/al%20Assad,_Bashar) Saturn (authority, structure, rigidity, stability, conservatism, obstacles) being in about the same place as Syria’s Moon, he will experience these same periods (mostly the earlier part of each time range and a few weeks prior) as times of confusion about how to be an authority, how to set boundaries/rules, and how to maintain stability and structure. At these times, he will likely have to deal with an increased number of situations involving deception, confusion, chemicals, oil, healthcare, drugs, poisons, water, and navy.

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed. Update (04.16.17): This prediction is based on Mars square Neptune transit. Mars=aggression/military. Neptune=chemicals, navy, confusion, lies. We may hear about an attack involving chemicals, confusion, navy, etc. Mars will be passing through Gemini, so it may involve air, airplanes, wind, or IT. Neptune is in Pisces, so double emphasis on water, chemicals, navy, illusion, confusion, etc. Another possibility is negative news about military personnel or activities related to navy and airforce. At the same time, transiting Mars will be making a positive aspect to the rulers of the 2nd house of finance in both the US and China’s chart, so the developments at this time may not cause problems for banks and financial organizations in these countries. Also, in May, transiting Jupiter (expansion, luck, international relations, crossing borders) will be hovering over the 2nd house rulers in the astro charts of the US and China — an indication of increased expenses, international expansion in the financial domain, and/or increased earnings [esp. from international sources].

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario. Update 03.26.17: Am now leaning more toward this manifesting as an earthquake. Possibly in South Chile (Mount Hudson? around noon?). Note that the path of the visible annular solar eclipse of 02-26-17 passes almost directly over it https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2017Feb26Agoogle.html

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

———————

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

April 17 – 21, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

USA: Mar 18 – Sep 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 14-18 and Aug 18-22) and Jan 16 – Mar 14, 2018 (esp Feb 15-16)— hopeful mood about sales of or new agreements related to oil, chemicals, movies/music, beverages, and pharmaceuticals (esp. shipments [oil, chemicals, pharma] or dissemination via media [video, music]). Additionally or alternatively, deception or lack of clarity about agreements and spread of information in those areas. The hopeful expectations may be due to the lack of details or unrealistic representation of the situation. Time when shipments or dissemination of related services and products may be easier than usual; at the same time, there may be confusion about the exact contract details, details on how to implement things technically in practice, quality of products, accuracy of the information, etc. Favorable time for setting up shipments over water and disseminating info via video/music. Also, there may be an increase in religious/spiritual movements (incl. any alternative medicine-related ones or movements focused on something that is ephemeral/unreal) — we may see increased communications about the related topics (e.g., religion, spiritual movements, deceptive info, etc.) on social media, in the news, and at social gatherings.

China: Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

———————

ALL WEEK: 

USA: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14) — Unexpected developments related to international partnerships (e.g., new agreements begin on a short notice, old agreements are suddenly cancelled, unusual partnerships are formed, etc.), unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation (esp. domestic and/or related to airplanes, cars, and phones) or problems related to businesses in those areas. Also, surprising developments related to media, telecoms, IT companies, and sales (e.g., sudden start or ending of some program, unusual new direction for a business, problems with electric supply, etc.). The reason for the developments will likely be some domestic policies, banks’ assets (e.g., sudden changes affect banks’ willingness to invest in businesses related to communication/transportation or IT), or real estate/land (e.g., some company suddenly moves). Also, increased possibility of sudden air campaigns or excessive winds.

Syria: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14 — Curiously, prediction above about unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation, as well as sudden air campaigns or excessive winds also applies to Syria (chart for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). This is because Mercury (wind, air, airplanes, cars, communication, transportation, etc.) in Syria’s chart opposes Mercury in the natal chart of the US. So, at this time transiting Uranus (sudden events, accidents, electricity, revolution, strange developments, aerospace, etc.) will square (problems/breakdowns) Mercury positions in both the US and Syria’s chart.

China: All week (esp. Apr 18-20) — Increased probability of some important public announcement or an announcement that affects masses about investments, taxes, mining, underground activities (secretive activities, like spying or hacking, or literally activities that occur in tunnels, mines, etc.), recycling, nuclear power, and/or some serious life-and-death situation. The announcement may relate to international affairs (esp. military), expansion, international travel, higher education, or some religious or beliefs/values system. There may be a sense of relief associated with the announcement, or, there may be a sense that something is getting too large and crossing the limits.

———————

APR 17, 2017 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Conservative cautious mood will likely predominate, esp. in the early morning.

USA: Pre-open and early am — focus on banks, financial organizations, navy, oil, pharmaceuticals, deceases, poisons, chemicals, lies, or confusion. There may be concerns may relate to someone’s leadership, a prominent [masculine regardless of gender] figure (leader and/or actor/performer), and/or stock market or risky activities (e.g., gambling, racing, investing in stocks). Not a good day for risky activities related to money. At the same time, banks and financial organizations’ activities focused on healthcare, livestock, service industries, government contracts (esp. related to military or weapons), as well as navy, oil, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc. should be successful in the sense that it may be easier than usual to achieve desired results. Assertive but slow/practical/well thought-through actions in the areas above (e.g., healthcare or government  contracts, esp. related to military) can lead to favorable outcomes (not so much instant profits but rather securing some positions or getting jobs).

USA: Apr 10 -21 — Banks and financial organizations’ activities focused on real estate, investing in food industry, farmlands, some domestic enterprises, or simply holding onto savings to preserve assets will go well and bring [small] profits.

Apr 17 – 21 — The market will probably go down the entire week and possibly through Apr 25. Venus will square Saturn precisely on Apr 10 and 21, and will hang around the degree of the exact square for awhile.

Apr 10 – 21 (esp. 15-16)— Increased focus on pharmaceuticals, medicine, drugs, healthcare, oil, chemicals, movies/music, religion, and their regulations. Some laws or international connections may be discussed (e.g., limitations on sales of some medical product overseas, control of travel due to spread of some disease, delays in the shipments of some chemical, etc.).

Apr 10 – 21 (esp. 10 and 20) — Increased concerns about finance or availability of cash/money. Concerns about financial retractions, regulations, and losses related to governmental entities and large corporations. Losses may be related to pharmaceuticals, medicine, drugs, oil, chemicals, beverages, navy, water, movies, music, etc. News about water-, oil-, or chemical-related damage, erosion, etc.

APR 18, 2017 (TUE): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).

APR 19, 2017 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

Apr 19-20 — Busy news days with focus on banks and financial organizations as well as farming, real estate, food production (growing vegetables, etc.), and construction. The news will probably be neutral or positive and about some changes, data/reports, media interaction, travel, cars, sales, speeches, and agreements. For ex., strategy of some bank or lending entity changes because of new [real estate] data, an entity implements new sales pattern, a business in one of the areas above begins a new media campaign or construction project, a group of farmers communicate some message on the social media; etc. The news or data that come out at this time may need to be revised or updated around May 12.

APR 20, 2017 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

APR 21, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is stronger during pre-open and early am hours. There is a possibility that the market will go up today, esp. in the afternoon. Even if so, on Mon, Apr 24, the mood may turn conservative/practical/cautious again. Also, on Mon, Apr 24, there may be increased concerns about banks and financial organizations in the US (over some announcements, agreements, or reports). On Tue, Apr 25, the market will probably reverse as attention will shift to some new events (likely, related to cars, airplanes, electricity, IT, sales [esp. e-sales], and military campaigns over air). Tue, Apr 25 will be a super busy news day with surprises, unusual developments, unexpected alliances/agreements, and possibly accidents (esp. involving cars, airplanes, wind, and fire).

USA: Increased focus on the value of the dollar and the price of gold and silver.

>>>> Glance ahead, global (updated):

North Korea (new): Last week, I saw that transiting Mercury (rhetoric) opposed (tension) the country’s Mars (military) (chart for Sept 10, 1948). However, based on transits alone, there wasn’t anything serious going on. The next Mercury opposition to NK’s Mars will take place on May 20, 2017 (Sat). At the same time, transiting Mars (aggression/threat/military) will oppose the country’s Jupiter (international relationships/expansion). It is quite possible that we will see another escalation of tensions around then. Given other global stressful transits between Mars and Neptune (lies, confusion, chemicals, navy) and then Saturn (limitations, losses, restrictions, death, collapse of structures, earthquakes) in May (see below), it could be somewhat stressful time globally. Also, May through mid-July, transiting Jupiter (expansion, luck, international relations, crossing borders) will be hovering over China’s Neptune and Mercury, so China may experience increased focus on its navy and airplanes (as well as oil, chemicals, etc.) — there may be growth or expansion of some sort and/or increased international involvement.

Syria: Apr 17 – Aug 20, 2017 (esp. mid-June 2017); Feb 14 – Apr 11, 2018 (esp. mid-March 2018); and Sep 1, 2018 – Feb 11, 2-19 (esp. 2nd week of Oct, 2018 and 2nd week of Jan, 2019) — Neptune (deception, confusion, oil, chemicals, water, navy, etc.) will conjunct (intensification, important developments, blending of energies) Syria’s Moon (security, nourishment, mother, women, emotion) ruler of the 10th house of leadership/government in the 5th house of stock market/risks/procreation/children. This could indicate increased focus on the areas above (e.g., leaders, children, and/or security) with themes of confusion or possibly poisoning. For ex., poisoning or chemical exposure of food, children, or mothers; confusion or lies about leadership; emotional confusion; increased drug use; increased floods; risky activities related to oil or chemicals; oil-for-food trading; etc. (Syria’s chart is for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). With Bashar Al Assad’s (http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/al%20Assad,_Bashar) Saturn (authority, structure, rigidity, stability, conservatism, obstacles) being in about the same place as Syria’s Moon, he will experience these same periods (mostly the earlier part of each time range and a few weeks prior) as times of confusion about how to be an authority, how to set boundaries/rules, and how to maintain stability and structure. At these times, he will likely have to deal with an increased number of situations involving deception, confusion, chemicals, oil, healthcare, drugs, poisons, water, and navy.

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) (updated) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed. Update (04.16.17): This prediction is based on Mars square Neptune transit. Mars=aggression/military. Neptune=chemicals, navy, confusion, lies. We may hear about an attack involving chemicals, confusion, navy, etc. Mars will be passing through Gemini, so it may involve air, airplanes, wind, or IT. Neptune is in Pisces, so double emphasis on water, chemicals, navy, illusion, confusion, etc. Another possibility is negative news about military personnel or activities related to navy and airforce. At the same time, transiting Mars will be making a positive aspect to the rulers of the 2nd house of finance in both the US and China’s chart, so the developments at this time may not cause problems for banks and financial organizations in these countries. Also, in May, transiting Jupiter (expansion, luck, international relations, crossing borders) will be hovering over the 2nd house rulers in the astro charts of the US and China — an indication of increased expenses, international expansion in the financial domain, and/or increased earnings [esp. from international sources].

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario. Update 03.26.17: Am now leaning more toward this manifesting as an earthquake. Possibly in South Chile (Mount Hudson? around noon?). Note that the path of the visible annular solar eclipse of 02-26-17 passes almost directly over it https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2017Feb26Agoogle.html

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

———————

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

April 10 – 14, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions & a few comments on transits to Syria’s chart

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

USA: Mar 18 – Sep 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 14-18 and Aug 18-22) and Jan 16 – Mar 14, 2018 (esp Feb 15-16)— hopeful mood about sales of or new agreements related to oil, chemicals, movies/music, beverages, and pharmaceuticals (esp. shipments [oil, chemicals, pharma] or dissemination via media [video, music]). Additionally or alternatively, deception or lack of clarity about agreements and spread of information in those areas. The hopeful expectations may be due to the lack of details or unrealistic representation of the situation. Time when shipments or dissemination of related services and products may be easier than usual; at the same time, there may be confusion about the exact contract details, details on how to implement things technically in practice, quality of products, accuracy of the information, etc. Favorable time for setting up shipments over water and disseminating info via video/music. Also, there may be an increase in religious/spiritual movements (incl. any alternative medicine-related ones or movements focused on something that is ephemeral/unreal) — we may see increased communications about the related topics (e.g., religion, spiritual movements, deceptive info, etc.) on social media, in the news, and at social gatherings.

China: Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: March 18 – Apr 10 (esp. Mar 27 – Apr 3) and Jul 24 – Aug 17 (esp. Aug 1-8) — Increased focus on legal matters surrounding governmental officials, government and large corporate entities, and/or established leaders in large corporations. The issues in question may involve partnerships and contracts — something may need to be re-evaluated or the contract may be suspended. The reasons for re-examination could involve expansion that is too rapid, legal concerns, or governmental regulations/constraints. Additionally or alternatively, we may hear about laws or regulations that challenge or conflict with powers/controls of the governmental authorities or large corporations — there may be conflicts between legal system (e.g., judge or some law) and governmental or corporate authorities. For ex., a leader is sued, government can’t use its power due to legal constraints, etc. Finally, there may be increased conflicts related to higher education (e.g., college campuses), immigration, and international travel — these will relate to conflicts with governmental authorities or large corporations as well (e.g., protest on campus against governmental regulations). See also the very first “Global” prediction at the top of the post.

USA: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14) — Unexpected developments related to international partnerships (e.g., new agreements begin on a short notice, old agreements are suddenly cancelled, unusual partnerships are formed, etc.), unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation (esp. domestic and/or related to airplanes, cars, and phones) or problems related to businesses in those areas. Also, surprising developments related to media, telecoms, IT companies, and sales (e.g., sudden start or ending of some program, unusual new direction for a business, problems with electric supply, etc.). The reason for the developments will likely be some domestic policies, banks’ assets (e.g., sudden changes affect banks’ willingness to invest in businesses related to communication/transportation or IT), or real estate/land (e.g., some company suddenly moves). Also, increased possibility of sudden air campaigns or excessive winds.

Syria: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10 and 13-14 — Curiously, prediction above about unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation, as well as sudden air campaigns or excessive winds also applies to Syria (chart for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). This is because Mercury (wind, air, airplanes, cars, communication, transportation, etc.) in Syria’s chart opposes Mercury in the natal chart of the US. So, at this time transiting Uranus (sudden events, accidents, electricity, revolution, strange developments, aerospace, etc.) will square (problems/breakdowns) Mercury positions in both the US and Syria’s chart.

China: Favorable time for expanding international partnerships and expanding influence on the world stage (esp. related to finance/loans, power/control in some hidden way, nuclear or solar power, and recycling).

———————

APR 10, 2017 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). This may be a reversal day with market going down the entire week and possibly through Apr 21 (could be even through 25). Venus will square Saturn precisely on Apr 10 and 21, and will hang around the degree of the exact square for awhile.

Apr 10-11 (esp. 10) and Apr 20-21 (esp. 20) — Increased concerns about finance or availability of cash/money. Concerns about financial retractions, regulations, and losses related to governmental entities and large corporations. Losses may be related to pharmaceuticals, medicine, drugs, oil, chemicals, beverages, navy, water, movies, music, etc. News about water-, oil-, or chemical-related damage, erosion, etc.

Apr 10-21 (esp. 15-16)— Increased focus on pharmaceuticals, medicine, drugs, healthcare, oil, chemicals, movies/music, religion, and their regulations. Some laws or international connections may be discussed (e.g., limitations on sales of some medical product overseas, control of travel due to spread of some disease, delays in the shipments of some chemical, etc.).

USA: Increased focus on pharmaceuticals, medicine, drugs, and healthcare in connection with leadership, military, wounds or weapons. This may be in connection with some domestic issue, incl. banks (assets, real estate investments), land/farming/food production, or mother/female care. Some issue may be highlighted, exposed, or a leader may come up with some quick/aggressive decision regarding the areas above.

USA: Apr 10-11 — Favorable time for aggressive leadership moves related to military, racing, and sports. That is, the time when it is easier for male/macho leaders to implement assertive actions in those areas.

APR 11, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).

China: Minor concerns about or disagreements with international organizations’ representatives about navy, water, oil, drugs, chemicals, etc. There may be a conflict between the desire for stability and certainty (esp. related to finance or construction of some structure) and confusion, deception, or erosion because of problems with water, chemicals, or possibly deception/lack of clarity.

APR 12, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).

APR 13, 2017 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

Apr 13-14 (esp. 13) — Increased focus on aerospace, IT, telecoms, electricity, and accidents or sudden events (esp. involving military and sports). Increased probability of sudden air campaigns or events involving computers, high tech equipment, or equipment involving transmission of data or electricity. For the US (and Syria), these events may be more stressful than globally. In general, increased focus on leaders or new initiatives in the areas above.

APR 14, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%).

>>>> Glance ahead, global (updated):

Syria (new): Apr 17 – Aug 20, 2017 (esp. mid-June 2017); Feb 14 – Apr 11, 2018 (esp. mid-March 2018); and Sep 1, 2018 – Feb 11, 2-19 (esp. 2nd week of Oct, 2018 and 2nd week of Jan, 2019) — Neptune (deception, confusion, oil, chemicals, water, navy, etc.) will conjunct (intensification, important developments, blending of energies) Syria’s Moon (security, nourishment, mother, women, emotion) ruler of the 10th house of leadership/government in the 5th house of stock market/risks/procreation/children. This could indicate increased focus on the areas above (e.g., leaders, children, and/or security) with themes of confusion or possibly poisoning. For ex., poisoning or chemical exposure of food, children, or mothers; confusion or lies about leadership; emotional confusion; increased drug use; increased floods; risky activities related to oil or chemicals; oil-for-food trading; etc. (Syria’s chart is for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). With Bashar Al Assad’s (http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/al%20Assad,_Bashar) Saturn (authority, structure, rigidity, stability, conservatism, obstacles) being in about the same place as Syria’s Moon, he will experience these same periods (mostly the earlier part of each time range and a few weeks prior) as times of confusion about how to be an authority, how to set boundaries/rules, and how to maintain stability and structure. At these times, he will likely have to deal with an increased number of situations involving deception, confusion, chemicals, oil, healthcare, drugs, poisons, water, and navy.

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario. Update 03.26.17: Am now leaning more toward this manifesting as an earthquake. Possibly in South Chile (Mount Hudson? around noon?). Note that the path of the visible annular solar eclipse of 02-26-17 passes almost directly over it https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2017Feb26Agoogle.html

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

———————

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

April 3 – 7, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

USA (new): Mar 18 – Sep 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 14-18 and Aug 18-22) and Jan 16 – Mar 14, 2018 (esp Feb 15-16)— hopeful mood about sales of or new agreements related to oil, chemicals, movies/music, beverages, and pharmaceuticals (esp. shipments [oil, chemicals, pharma] or dissemination via media [video, music]). Additionally or alternatively, deception or lack of clarity about agreements and spread of information in those areas. The hopeful expectations may be due to the lack of details or unrealistic representation of the situation. Time when shipments or dissemination of related services and products may be easier than usual; at the same time, there may be confusion about the exact contract details, details on how to implement things technically in practice, quality of products, accuracy of the information, etc. Favorable time for setting up shipments over water and disseminating info via video/music. Also, there may be an increase in religious/spiritual movements (incl. any alternative medicine-related ones or movements focused on something that is ephemeral/unreal) — we may see increased communications about the related topics (e.g., religion, spiritual movements, deceptive info, etc.) on social media, in the news, and at social gatherings.

China: Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

ALL WEEK: 

Global: March 18 – Apr 10 (esp. Mar 27 – Apr 3) and Jul 24 – Aug 17 (esp. Aug 1-8) — Increased focus on legal matters surrounding governmental officials, government and large corporate entities, and/or established leaders in large corporations. The issues in question may involve partnerships and contracts — something may need to be re-evaluated or the contract may be suspended. The reasons for re-examination could involve expansion that is too rapid, legal concerns, or governmental regulations/constraints. Additionally or alternatively, we may hear about laws or regulations that challenge or conflict with powers/controls of the governmental authorities or large corporations — there may be conflicts between legal system (e.g., judge or some law) and governmental or corporate authorities. For ex., a leader is sued, government can’t use its power due to legal constraints, etc. Finally, there may be increased conflicts related to higher education (e.g., college campuses), immigration, and international travel — these will relate to conflicts with governmental authorities or large corporations as well (e.g., protest on campus against governmental regulations). See also the very first “Global” prediction at the top of the post.

USA: Mar 22 – Apr 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 9-10) — Unexpected developments related to international partnerships (e.g., new agreements begin on a short notice, old agreements are suddenly cancelled, unusual partnerships are formed, etc.), unexpected/sudden breakdowns in communication or transportation (esp. domestic and/or related to airplanes, cars, and phones) or problems related to businesses in those areas. Also, surprising developments related to media, telecoms, IT companies, and sales (e.g., sudden start or ending of some program, unusual new direction for a business, problems with electric supply, etc.). The reason for the developments will likely be some domestic policies, banks’ assets (e.g., sudden changes affect banks’ willingness to invest in businesses related to communication/transportation or IT), or real estate/land (e.g., some company suddenly moves). Also, increased possibility of sudden air campaigns or excessive winds.

———————

APR 03, 2017 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

USA: Apr 3-4 (esp. 3) — Increased focus on the country’s [male/masculine] leaders, authority figures, status in the world, and banks or financial organizations. Old/established authorities may be challenged or there may be disagreements about domestic policies or their impact on the country’s leadership in the world (esp. in the area of finance). The disagreements may be due to some domestic policy [possibly related to finance, esp. banks’ assets] being seen as at odds with the country’s ability to maintain control and provide reliable/permanent/long-tern leadership.

China: Intensified tensions over partnerships or agreements, likely over military developments and/or nuclear power plants, or pollution from recycling. Some arguments, aggression, or power play involving male/macho leaders, military, spies, or some undercover operations.

China: Increased probability of confusion or deception related to investments, loans, rates, taxes, insurance, recycling, pollution, nuclear power plants, spying, or some subversive operations. There may be news involving banks or financial organizations that highlight some issue in the attempt to clarify the confusion, get actual numbers or facts, or clear the deception —  as in, find out what truly is going on (e.g., how much taxes some entity has paid, what the rates are, what is the actual policy, what is the debt amount, what is the actual level of pollution, etc.).

APR 04, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

China: Apr 4 – 6 (esp. Arp 5)— Increased focus on finances, profits, international connections/sales, international travel/shipping, banks’ assets, farming, land, and real estate. There may be a push for more aggressive communication and actions in these areas — some agreements may be discussed or aggressively promoted. Also, there may be temporary disappointments about profits from businesses related to communication/transportation, IT, electronics, and sales. For ex., some domestic communication or transportation business may experience problems with overseas sales, or, domestic businesses may aggressively negotiate sales to foreign markets but excessive aggression may hurt the negotiations.

APR 05, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

APR 06, 2017 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).

APR 07, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (55%). A day of increased excitement with focus on agreements and partnerships as well as new leaders and international negotiations. This could be a reversal day, with the market reversing on Mon (probably to down).

On Mon (Apr 10), we will have a Venus/Saturn square which often corresponds with market down/bottom and concerns about finance or availability of cash/money. Also, on Mon, there will likely be increased focus on pharmaceuticals, medicine, healthcare, oil, and their regulations. Some laws or international connections may be discussed (e.g., limitations on sales of some medical product overseas, control of travel due to spread of some disease, delays in the shipments of some chemical, etc.).

———————

>>>> Glance ahead, global (repeated from last week):

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario. Update 03.26.17: Am now leaning more toward this manifesting as an earthquake. Possibly in South Chile (Mount Hudson? around noon?). Note that the path of the visible annular solar eclipse of 02-26-17 passes almost directly over it https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2017Feb26Agoogle.html

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

———————

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

March 27 – 31, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

China: Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: As last week, but even stronger, increased excitement about weapons, military, aerospace, telecoms, electricity generation (plants, batteries, etc. esp. those used for military, engines, and airplanes), electronic gadgets, computers, etc. We may hear about some inventions, improvements, deals/partnerships (esp. international), international expansion,  legal matters (should go smoothly), contracts, and agreements. There may also be unexpected problems, accidents, and disruptions due to sudden change in circumstances, abrupt cancellations, sudden terminations, unexpected start of some new campaign, disruptions in the signal processing, loss of connection, problems with communication, etc. So, for ex., we may hear about unexpected air campaigns, airline accidents, accidents involving electric cars or phones, sudden break up of some agreements, etc.

Global: March 18 – Apr 10 (esp. Mar 27 – Apr 3) and Jul 24 – Aug 17 (esp. Aug 1-8) — Increased focus on legal matters surrounding governmental officials, government and large corporate entities, and/or established leaders in large corporations. The issues in question may involve partnerships and contracts — something may need to be re-evaluated or the contract may be suspended. The reasons for re-examination could involve expansion that is too rapid, legal concerns, or governmental regulations/constraints. Additionally or alternatively, we may hear about laws or regulations that challenge or conflict with powers/controls of the governmental authorities or large corporations — there may be conflicts between legal system (e.g., judge or some law) and governmental or corporate authorities. For ex., a leader is sued, government can’t use its power due to legal constraints, etc. Finally, there may be increased conflicts related to higher education (e.g., college campuses), immigration, and international travel — these will relate to conflicts with governmental authorities or large corporations as well (e.g., protest on campus against governmental regulations). See also the very first “Global” prediction at the top of the post.

USA: As last week (although even weaker this week), increased probability of positive developments related to military, electric cars, aerospace, sports, racing, gambling, entertainment industry, stock market, and international partnerships — there may be some opportunities for improvement or [international] expansion/collaboration, incl. IT, signal/internet coverage, cyber-security initiatives, and changes in electricity/power supply.

China: Continued influence from last week — although even weaker this week. Increased focus on oil, chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, medicine (esp. mental health, infectious disease, genetics, hybridization, and end-of-life), navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution, secrets, death, music, movies, photography, and religion. There may be some excitement or excess related to these areas, probably due to larger than usual investments in or profits/losses from these areas; some issue may get out of control, cross borders, or exceed limits. We may also hear about new research or finding (e.g., some medical research related to reproduction, life span, or mental health), or about something being unearthed/mined (e.g., some old remains or oil/metal). Finally, there may be changes in regulations or agreements related to taxes, insurance, and loans that could affect the areas above (e.g., increased taxes on certain related products or changes in bank rates), as well as international trade, travel, and shipping (esp. over water or of oil, chemicals, etc.). New laws, regulations, or legal issues will likely be featured prominently in the news (e.g., whether some actions are legal or whether some entity has crossed the borders/limits).

MAR 27, 2017 (MON): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Increased news about electricity, airspace, IT, telecoms, and various gadgets — this may be related to military (e.g., military airplanes or use of computers/hacking as a weapon).

Mar 27-31 (esp. 29): Increased news about legal issues, immigration, governmental authorities and large corporations, partnerships (esp. international), electricity, aerospace, telecoms, and cars. The time period may coincide with news about important laws or partnership agreements involving governments and/or large corporations (if there is a merger planned, it will likely not go through, possibly due to governmental restrictions). There may be increased news about lawyers, diplomats, taxes, mining, investments, and international relationships — some laws or regulations may be passed. The time may also coincide with a significant market reversal (probably a TOP). Some legal conflict (esp. involving government or large corporations) or unhealthy/overdone expansion (e.g., related to immigration, international liaisons, or risky investments) may reach a critical point. As noted in the Global predictions, however, the reversal or the escalation of some legal conflict may be temporary at this time — the issue may not reach resolution, or, the major market peak may not be reached until August.

USA: Mar 27-29 — Increased concerns about finances (e.g., excessive expenses, decreased profits, insufficient capital, unfavorable financial agreements with international partners) as well as minor negative news about workforce and/or healthcare (e.g., some domestic issue, such as expenses on homeland security or lack of savings, may undermine earnings or perks received by government employees or healthcare workers — money may be needed to ensure stability/safety first and therefore there may not be sufficient funds for services).

China: Increased focus on self-identity (country’s unique path) and relations with other nations  (esp. related to financial ties and investments). Some minor conflicts are possible because of perceived opposition between country’s investments and identified areas of income from partnerships and what external entities may desire; possibly an ego battle over financial influences or investment areas.

MAR 28, 2017 (TUE): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).

Mar 28-29 — Could be days when a more sober/practical mood will predominate — this could bring the market down.

USA: Mar 28-29 — Increased concerns about banks and financial organizations. The source of concerns will likely be stock market and/or risky investment activities.

MAR 29, 2017 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

MAR 30, 2017 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (55%).

MAR 31, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). The down influence is stronger in late afternoon.

>>>> Glance ahead, global (updated):

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario. Update 03.26.17: Am now leaning more toward this manifesting as an earthquake. Possibly in South Chile (Mount Hudson? around noon?). Note that the path of the visible annular solar eclipse of 02-26-17 passes almost directly over it https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2017Feb26Agoogle.html

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

———————

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

March 20 – 24, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

China (new): Mar 13 – Oct 15, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-13 and Aug 23-29) and Jan 1 – Mar 20, 2018 (esp. Feb 7-14) — Increased focus on international partnerships and contracts, esp. those that are long term or involve building something permanent (e.g., bridge, large structure of metal and stone), mining, and governmental regulations (e.g., imposing strict controls on what each partner can and cannot do, how structures should be built, who can use water and how, how much pollution is too much, etc.). The focus will be on permanency, long term, stability, and establishing strict order and authority (e.g., limiting access to water or oil). The reason for the emphasis on stability and structure may relate to concerns or confusion about which [structures, authorities, partners, buildings, projects, etc.] are permanent and which are not, what is a mirage/deception and what is solid. At this time, the country may question stability of the partnerships, projects, and structures. The projects, partnerships, and regulations will probably involve construction (esp. related to mining, large machinery, and large rocks or metal objects), medicine, pharma, drugs, oil, chemicals, movies, music, navy, and water (e.g., beverages, alcohol, or weather protections like some walls to keep water away). Alternatively, the country may itself engage in some deception or make mistakes due to lack of clarity about something (e.g., underestimate how solid something is) and undermine stability and permanency of partnerships/projects/structures.

Increased probability of a major earthquake. The current influence will take place under transiting Neptune’s opposition to Saturn in China’s chart this time. The last time there was a similar influence was in 1976 when transiting Neptune squared China’s Saturn. Note that Neptune= water/liquid, while Saturn=earth/rock. On July 28, 1976 there was Tangshan earthquake (magnitude 7.5) in China. Of particular interest is a description about soil liquefaction that accompanied that earthquake: “The shaking, which lasted 14 to 16 seconds, transformed much of the region’s exceptionally deep sandy soil into a fluidlike mass (liquefaction). Since few buildings were anchored to bedrock, the shaking and subsequent liquefaction of the soil destabilized and brought down most of the structures throughout the affected area.” (John P. Rafferty https://www.britannica.com/event/Tangshan-earthquake-of-1976) While this is just a single example, it fits the description of Neptune/Saturn hard aspect in action. Thus, there may be increased concerns about soil liquefaction once again.

Yet another manifestation could be related to weather and natural events, such as struggle to contain water, chemicals, pollution, or some contagious disease. For ex., water erosion undermines large stone/metal structures, attempts to ward off water with walls fail leading to flooding, oil or some chemical spreads leading to contamination, etc.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: As last week, increased excitement about weapons, military, aerospace, telecoms, electricity generation (plants, batteries, etc. esp. those used for military, engines, and airplanes), electronic gadgets, computers, etc. We may hear about some inventions, improvements, deals/partnerships (esp. international), international expansion,  legal matters (should go smoothly), contracts, and agreements.

Global: March 18 – Apr 10 (esp. Mar 27 – Apr 3) and Jul 24 – Aug 17 (esp. Aug 1-8) — Increased focus on legal matters surrounding governmental officials, government and large corporate entities, and/or established leaders in large corporations. The issues in question may involve partnerships and contracts — something may need to be re-evaluated or the contract may be suspended. The reasons for re-examination could involve expansion that is too rapid, legal concerns, or governmental regulations/constraints. Additionally or alternatively, we may hear about laws or regulations that challenge or conflict with powers/controls of the governmental authorities or large corporations — there may be conflicts between legal system (e.g., judge or some law) and governmental or corporate authorities. For ex., a leader is sued, government can’t use its power due to legal constraints, etc. Finally, there may be increased conflicts related to higher education (e.g., college campuses), immigration, and international travel — these will relate to conflicts with governmental authorities or large corporations as well (e.g., protest on campus against governmental regulations). See also the very first “Global” prediction at the top of the post.

USA: As last week (although weaker this week), increased probability of positive developments related to military, electric cars, aerospace, sports, racing, gambling, entertainment industry, stock market, and international partnerships — there may be some opportunities for improvement or [international] expansion/collaboration, incl. IT, signal/internet coverage, cyber-security initiatives, and changes in electricity/power supply.

China: Continued influence from last week — although weaker this week. Increased focus on oil, chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, medicine (esp. mental health, infectious disease, genetics, hybridization, and end-of-life), navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution, secrets, death, music, movies, photography, and religion. There may be some excitement or excess related to these areas, probably due to larger than usual investments in or profits/losses from these areas; some issue may get out of control, cross borders, or exceed limits. We may also hear about new research or finding (e.g., some medical research related to reproduction, life span, or mental health), or about something being unearthed/mined (e.g., some old remains or oil/metal). Finally, there may be changes in regulations or agreements related to taxes, insurance, and loans that could affect the areas above (e.g., increased taxes on certain related products or changes in bank rates), as well as international trade, travel, and shipping (esp. over water or of oil, chemicals, etc.). New laws, regulations, or legal issues will likely be featured prominently in the news (e.g., whether some actions are legal or whether some entity has crossed the borders/limits).

———————

MAR 20, 2017 (MON): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Increased focus on some legal issue (esp. related to arms sales; profits from weapons, sports, gaming, or risky activities; and expenditures on military) — we may hear about contracts, negotiations, legal concerns, and intentional connections (e.g., import/export, immigration, and travel). There may be a heightened expectation from entities that represent businesses connected military/weapons or sports/gaming about some contract or deal, but the deal may be somehow in conflict with governmental regulations or not favored by authorities.

USA: On Mar 20 only, minor miscommunications in international negotiations due to excessive forcefulness and/or concerns about protecting land, security, and assets.

USA: Mar 20-21 — Increased focus on banks, their cash on hand, capital, earnings, and savings.

USA: Mar 20-22 — Excessive excitement over some legal issue, immigration, international travel, international partnership, or higher education. We may hear about excessive spending or insufficient profits. At the same time, there may be excitement about changing things around (so, hope for grand profits from some international partnership or from addressing issues related to immigration, higher education, or international travel/shipping).

China: Mar 20-22 — Increased focus on rates, investments, markets, taxes, insurance, mines, spying, and nuclear power. Issues will relate to banks, financial organizations, their capital or cash in hand, or some tangible assets needed for stability vs. expenses, lending, and investments. The discussion may focus on the need to balance the earnings/savings with expenses/lending/investments to ensure stable operations.

China: Mar 20-21 — In addition to the increased focus on rates, investments, there will also be focus on banks’ transparency and honesty. Some issue may need to be clarified or there may be concerns that reported earnings/cash on hand/savings may not be accurate. Some details may be lacking (e.g., about banks’ tax info or investments) causing increased questioning. Finally, there may be increased focus on investments in real-estate (esp. on or near water), oil, chemicals, movie or music industry, or pharma.

China: Mar 20-21 (esp. 21) — Increased probability of an important announcement about banks or financial organizations. This may have to do with a new approach or a beginning of a new project.

MAR 21, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

China: Mar 21-22 — Increased focus on military partnerships and negotiations. Things will likely go smoothly with diplomatic communications proceeding well.

MAR 22, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).

USA: Increased focus on financial agreements and partnerships with other countries as well as on labor force and employment matters. Some domestic issues may be identified along with corrective approaches. The focus will be on protecting domestic interests, incl. land, food production, farming, and labor force.

MAR 23, 2017 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

Mar 22-23 — busy news days with focus on agreements/partnerships/contracts, higher education, international relationships (incl. immigration and international travel), communication/transportation (e.g., social media, shipping, cars, airplanes, etc.), and legal issues. The legality of some contract or immigration-related issues may come under governmental scrutiny, or, there may be conflict between regulatory authorities and entities who want to travel or communicate freely. Possible protests at colleges, problems with schools, foreigners, or legal battles (e.g., over immigration, freedom of press, suppression of info on social media, travel ban, etc.). Increased news about car, phone, and airplane manufacturers as well as businesses related to electricity production (possible related to legal issues or international agreements). There may be a lot of news, excitement, and discussions. Some statements made at this time may end up being an over-promise, a quick judgment, or an over-statement because of overlooked details. On the other hand, some entities may focus too much on details and miss a larger picture (e.g., focus on someone’s words verbatim and miss their actual meaning).

USA: A few tense aspects to US natal chart, but all from relatively benign planets — this may indicate more of an exciting day where even negative news (about some losses or overestimated risky investments) may be seen as a “buy the dip” opportunity and ultimately result in the up day overall.

China: Mar 24-25 — Increased excitement related to stock market and risky activities/gaming — there may be losses or lower than expected profits (possibly by banks/financial organizations that invested in something risky), but it may not be perceived as discouraging news but rather an exciting buy opportunity.

MAR 24, 2017 (FR): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

———————

>>>> Glance ahead, global (repeated from last week):

Mar 29 (+- 1-2 days): Increased news about legal issues, immigration, governmental authorities and large corporations, partnerships (esp. international), electricity, aerospace, telecoms, and cars. The time period may coincide with news about important laws or partnership agreements involving governments and/or large corporations (if there is a merger planned, it will likely not go through, possibly due to governmental restrictions). There may be increased news about lawyers, diplomats, taxes, mining, investments, and international relationships — some laws or regulations may be passed. The time may also coincide with a significant market reversal (probably a TOP).

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario.

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

———————

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.

March 13 – 17, 2017: Weekly financial astrology predictions

Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on taxes, loans, insurance, nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal — these too may begin to undergo significant changes  due to some laws or expansion. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.

At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes, new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s), and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). There may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) —  either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.).

Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.

Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).

USA: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016  (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something breaking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.

USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.

China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.

China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).

OIL: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, spirituality, etc.

Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will likely experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical  and DuPont merger was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).

ALL WEEK: 

Global: As last week, increased excitement about weapons, military, aerospace, telecoms, electricity generation (plants, batteries, etc. esp. those used for military, engines, and airplanes), electronic gadgets, computers, etc. We may hear about some inventions, improvements, deals/partnerships (esp. international), international expansion,  legal matters (should go smoothly), contracts, and agreements.

USA: As last week, increased focus on the country’s status in the world, leadership/government, real estate as well as various issues related to security, safety, and stability (incl. homeland security, borders, food industry, and banks’ assets). We may hear about limitations, controls, restructuring, cuts, losses, reductions, etc. See “USA: Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb)…” above for more details.

USA: As last week, increased probability of new developments related to military, electric cars, aerospace, sports, racing, gambling, entertainment industry, stock market, and international partnerships — there may be some unexpected changes or new opportunities, incl. improved IT, improved signal/internet coverage, new cyber-security initiatives, and changes in electricity/power supply. The changes could be fairly revolutionary, unexpected, or surprising and may be due to some unexpected/unusual domestic developments related to real estate, buildings/territory where related businesses are located, mortgages, land, homeland security, borders, food, farming, and banks’ assets.

China: Continued influence from last week. Increased focus on oil, chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, medicine (esp. mental health, infectious disease, genetics, hybridization, and end-of-life), navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution, secrets, death, music, movies, photography, and religion. There may be some excitement or excess related to these areas, probably due to larger than usual investments in or profits/losses from these areas; some issue may get out of control, cross borders, or exceed limits. We may also hear about new research or finding (e.g., some medical research related to reproduction, life span, or mental health), or about something being unearthed/mined (e.g., some old remains or oil/metal). Finally, there may be changes in regulations or agreements related to taxes, insurance, and loans that could affect the areas above (e.g., increased taxes on certain related products or changes in bank rates), as well as international trade, travel, and shipping (esp. over water or of oil, chemicals, etc.). New laws, regulations, or legal issues will likely be featured prominently in the news (e.g., whether some actions are legal or whether some entity has crossed the borders/limits).

———————

MAR 13, 2017 (MON): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

MAR 14, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).

In the afternoon — increased excitement about weapons, military, aerospace, telecoms, electricity generation, electronic gadgets, computers, etc. We may hear about some agreements, partnerships, or legal matters. There may also be increased news about medicine, esp. related to contagious deceases, psychotropic drugs, illegal substances, sleep disorders, religion, or some unusual condition or unconventional treatment. Some new drug or approach may be brought into spotlight. There may be concerns about it or lack of acceptance because of conservative attitudes or for moral reasons. Finally, thee may be news about lies/deception/irrational actions of a prominent entity — it may be related to religion, morality, beliefs, immigration, or international connections. For ex., some conservative, religious, or foreign authorities may be concerned with some prominent leader’s lies, irrationality, addiction, or hidden problems.

MAR 15, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).

China: Increased focus on stock market, risky activities, and entertainment industry. There may be news about profitability or value of related projects or activities to the goals/vision of the country (e.g., report on financial risks due to exposure to the market, or, news about investments in movies).

MAR 16, 2017 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

USA: Increased news day with focus on legal issues, laws, immigration, higher education, international travel, and partnerships. There may be some discussions or negotiations, probably related to homeland security, banks, real estate, mortgages, or land/farming/food industry. Negotiations may briefly run into obstacles or require additional effort as parties may disagree about laws or share different beliefs (e.g., due to different religious values or culture).

MAR 17, 2017 (FR): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

———————

>>>> Glance ahead, global (updated):

Mar 29 (+- 1-2 days): Increased news about legal issues, immigration, governmental authorities and large corporations, partnerships (esp. international), electricity, aerospace, telecoms, and cars. The time period may coincide with news about important laws or partnership agreements involving governments and/or large corporations (if there is a merger planned, it will likely not go through, possibly due to governmental restrictions). There may be increased news about lawyers, diplomats, taxes, mining, investments, and international relationships — some laws or regulations may be passed. The time may also coincide with a significant market reversal (probably a TOP).

May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.

May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.

June 15-27, esp. 15, 20-21, 23-24 (new) — increased news about power grid, travel (incl. planes), and communications. Greater than usual chance of a massive power outage or some other large-scale disruption that can affect travel, on-line sales, shipping, internet connection, and communications  (e.g., problems with satellite navigation, power plants, transformers, web-service providers, shipping companies, subways, etc.). This influence will be the strongest on June 20-21. The cause for the disruption may be hot/dry weather and/or too much wind — something may exceed its capacity or get out of balance (e.g., hot weather spikes electricity consumption and overwhelms power plants, strong winds damage power lines, etc.), there may be fire, accident, explosion, etc. The issue may be due to an accident or weather rather than intentional acts, but [in the worst case] it could lead to riots or angry outbursts. Regarding weather-related events, it’s worth noting that there may be an increased possibility of an earthquake and/or significant solar flare, but am less certain of this manifestation. A power outage seems the most likely scenario.

Also, there may be increased news about oil, pharma, chemicals, water, pollution, deceases, etc. discussed in conjunction with finances, profits, and land/farming/food industry — so, loss of land due to water, notable changes in profits of pharma, oil, chemical etc. companies, merges or partnerships among said companies, food poisonings, chemical pollution of large land area. Finally, increased focus on some legal issue, higher education (e.g., colleges), international agreements, or immigration. For ex., we may hear about important laws regarding immigration and international travel, some international partners may be negotiating something (possibly related to oil, chemicals, finances, and land), some major companies may be involved in legal negotiations, etc.

June 23, 27 (new)  — increased market activity, greater than usual moves (prob. down on the 23rd; 27 — could be a reversal/bottom [of the V shaped move]). Also, significant days for the US (e.g., some threat, focus on military, fires, defense, land, farms, food, banks, legal issues, immigration, and international partnerships).

June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.

July 5-6 (new) — increased likelihood of more significant market moves, esp. for the US,  and/or noteworthy weather-related events, incl. power outages and strong winds (though not as strong as on Jun 20-21).

>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated from last week):

As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability.

For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).

With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.

>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):

May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.

Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, etc.). Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.
