June 29 – July 03, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on Jul 5.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global/China: Jun 15- July 10 (esp. June 28-30) and then Nov 04 – 20 (esp. Nov 11-13), 2020 — Increased news about nuclear power, radiation, power plants, recycling plants, shifts in governmental leadership (power changes hands at the top), secretive activities, spying/hacking, underground activities (burials, mining, waste storage, etc.), terrorist activities, and religious activities (not necessarily spiritual but more related to “correct behaviors” or “correct values”), and so on. The nature of the news may be expansion (e.g., new religious rules, new regulations for the power plants, new leadership at governmental or corporate level, an accident that leads to the increase in radiation, etc.), or, death/transformation/rebirth (e.g., death of a prominent leader [esp. religious, diplomat, judge, or professor], closure of related businesses, the end of some program, restarting of a nuclear plant, etc.). The changes will likely involve international partners or groups/community, and may involve changes in regulations (e.g., related to immigration or movement/shipment across borders). With China’s chart transits at the same time, it is possible that one or more scenarios above will involve China (e.g., the country may introduce new regulations on trash recycling, opens a new trading route that possibly goes over the mountains, or deploys some powerful navy vessel).

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: Jul 26-28, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, etc. prices (probably down on various concerns about retail sales, communication, and transportation) as well as a few large down days for the stock market in general (esp. Jul 27, 2020). Nov 2020 – Feb 2021 (esp. end of Jan 2021) may see an accident possibly resulting in water pollution and/or some other significant developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, etc. At the same time (end of Jan 2021), there may be some surprising unexpected developments related to earnings, finance, currencies, and banks; this may involve airlines, telecoms, and IT companies — sudden bankruptcies? companies breaking into multiple entities? Massive power/service outages? A spike of problems in the areas above and increased market volatility are likely around Jan 18-29, 2020. Then, in Apr 2021 (esp. 8-11), there may be renewed tensions and fighting over oil or about oil prices. These tensions may be accompanied by a large market drop on Apr 8 and/or 9, 2021.

———————

JUN 29, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

USA: Background influence that started around the end of Jan, 2020 and will continue through early Oct, 2020 and then will pick up again mid-Nov, 2020 to mid-Feb, 2021 — This influence will be felt strongly this week — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, law enforcement-related (incl. judges and police), as well as various agreements and negotiations. There may be significant changes, incl. new laws, end/beginning of new partnerships, withdrawal from or entering new international organizations, death/removal of leaders, changes in regulations (incl. international travel, shipments, tariffs, etc.), expansion or reduction of outlet locations on a massive scale (esp. internationally), and so on. For ex., we may hear about dramatic changes in the the sales. Also, similarly to the news about Microsoft closing their stores, we may hear about similar closures or relocations [to overseas?] announced by other businesses in the areas above. This includes businesses related to cars, phones, airplanes, schools, retail stores, newspapers, media outlets, IT, etc. There may be emphasis on new laws, immigration, international relations, or international connections as a reason for changes, or areas that are affected by changes. For ex., overseas sales are down, so locations close; or, domestic sales are down, so locations move overseas. The scale of changes is likely to be massive with a high probability of going overboard and “throwing the baby with the bathwater.” These decisions may come to bite, be reversed, or have some follow up actions [e.g., another round of closures, changes in immigration policies, re-opening of the locations closed earlier in the year, etc.] come November, 2020 (mid-Nov 2020 to mid-Feb, 2021).

JUN 30, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

Jun 30 – Jul1 — Increased news about businesses, products, or projects related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, agreements and negotiations. This may be connected to banks, real estate, farming, food production, grocery stores, as well as general issues of safety, security, and stability (e.g., do banks have enough money, which banks are stable, which real estate investments are safe, are farmers able to produce/sell their goods, is there enough food to go around, is the population safe and protected by its government, is traveling safe, is shopping safe, is food supply stable, etc.).

JUL 01, 2019 (WED): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

USA: Jul 1-3, 2020 — Increased focus on earnings, profits, workforce, healthcare, social support, veterinary care, livestock, governmental services, and governmental contracts. This may include postal service, police, teachers, and other government-supported domains. There may be concerns, anger, or upsetting news due to some domestic issues (esp. related to banks, real estate, food production, groceries, and farming) as well as general security and stability concerns.

JUL 02, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

JUL 03, 2019 (FR): Holiday; US markets closed.

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from the prior week):

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

June 22-26, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on June 25-26.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global/China: Jun 15- July 10 (esp. June 28-30) and then Nov 04 – 20 (esp. Nov 11-13), 2020 — Increased news about nuclear power, radiation, power plants, recycling plants, shifts in governmental leadership (power changes hands at the top), secretive activities, spying/hacking, underground activities (burials, mining, waste storage, etc.), terrorist activities, and religious activities (not necessarily spiritual but more related to “correct behaviors” or “correct values”), and so on. The nature of the news may be expansion (e.g., new religious rules, new regulations for the power plants, new leadership at governmental or corporate level, an accident that leads to the increase in radiation, etc.), or, death/transformation/rebirth (e.g., death of a prominent leader [esp. religious, diplomat, judge, or professor], closure of related businesses, the end of some program, restarting of a nuclear plant, etc.). The changes will likely involve international partners or groups/community, and may involve changes in regulations (e.g., related to immigration or movement/shipment across borders). With China’s chart transits at the same time, it is possible that one or more scenarios above will involve China (e.g., the country may introduce new regulations on trash recycling, opens a new trading route that possibly goes over the mountains, or deploys some powerful navy vessel).

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: Jul 26-28, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, etc. prices (probably down on various concerns about retail sales, communication, and transportation) as well as a few large down days for the stock market in general (esp. Jul 27, 2020). Nov 2020 – Feb 2021 (esp. end of Jan 2021) may see an accident possibly resulting in water pollution and/or some other significant developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, etc. At the same time (end of Jan 2021), there may be some surprising unexpected developments related to earnings, finance, currencies, and banks; this may involve airlines, telecoms, and IT companies — sudden bankruptcies? companies breaking into multiple entities? Massive power/service outages? A spike of problems in the areas above and increased market volatility are likely around Jan 18-29, 2020. Then, in Apr 2021 (esp. 8-11), there may be renewed tensions and fighting over oil or about oil prices. These tensions may be accompanied by a large market drop on Apr 8 and/or 9, 2021.

———————

JUN 22, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

USA: Jun 22-24 — Increase focus on leaders and what leaders say/communicate, trips the leaders take, or the agreements that the leaders may be negotiating. The agreements or discussions may involve retail sales, communication and/or transportation projects. Some issue may be clarified (e.g., who can travel, where and how, domestically). The outcome of the negotiations or agreements may be a new law (e.g., regarding travel and immigration). 

China: Jun 22-24 — Minor concerns, confusion, misinformation, or stressful events related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, hospitals, deaths, secret/underground location or businesses that involve money lending, mining, movies, beverages, navy, and shipment of oil or over water. If there is an ongoing negotiation, it may encounter delays due to the lack of clarity or missing info. There may also be news about unfavorable changes in taxes or tariffs that affect areas above. 

JUN 23, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

USA: Jun 23-24 — Increased focus on earnings and prices (esp. of domestically produced goods, esp. produce, groceries, food, etc.). The news will probably be positive (e.g., government offers more support to the related businesses, profitable international agreement reached, etc.).

JUN 24, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (60%).

JUN 25, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

Jun 25 — Reversal in the news about earnings, evaluation or value (esp. related to the retail sales and communication/transportation). This may include a change in the price of airline tickets, change in the plans to launch some media platform or a service, change in the rules related to traveling (e.g., a previously suspended travel service resumes), changes in the future earnings estimates, or a change in a product release date, etc.

Jun 25-26 — Important public announcement or a development affecting large groups of people. Floods, inclement weather, fires, poisoning, or some other misfortune that negatively affects food industry, crops, restaurants, grocery stores, farms, etc. Also, possibly related to homeland security, “war on drugs,” navy, or some hidden/secretive military forces. Public perception of the developments may be divided — half will love it half will hate it.

JUN 26, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may go up (60%). 

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from the prior week):

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

June 15-19, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on June 19-21.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global/China: Jun 15- July 10 (esp. June 28-30) and then Nov 04 – 20 (esp. Nov 11-13), 2020 — Increased news about nuclear power, radiation, power plants, recycling plants, shifts in governmental leadership (power changes hands at the top), secretive activities, spying/hacking, underground activities (burials, mining, waste storage, etc.), terrorist activities, and religious activities (not necessarily spiritual but more related to “correct behaviors” or “correct values”), and so on. The nature of the news may be expansion (e.g., new religious rules, new regulations for the power plants, new leadership at governmental or corporate level, an accident that leads to the increase in radiation, etc.), or, death/transformation/rebirth (e.g., death of a prominent leader [esp. religious, diplomat, judge, or professor], closure of related businesses, the end of some program, restarting of a nuclear plant, etc.). The changes will likely involve international partners or groups/community, and may involve changes in regulations (e.g., related to immigration or movement/shipment across borders). With China’s chart transits at the same time, it is possible that one or more scenarios above will involve China (e.g., the country may introduce new regulations on trash recycling, opens a new trading route that possibly goes over the mountains, or deploys some powerful navy vessel).

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: June 8-15, 2020 may see an increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil. This upsetting influence should dissipate over the next week or so. Jul 26-28, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, etc. prices (probably down on various concerns about retail sales, communication, and transportation) as well as a few large down days for the stock market in general (esp. Jul 27, 2020). Nov 2020 – Feb 2021 (esp. end of Jan 2021) may see an accident possibly resulting in water pollution and/or some other significant developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, etc. At the same time (end of Jan 2021), there may be some surprising unexpected developments related to earnings, finance, currencies, and banks; this may involve airlines, telecoms, and IT companies — sudden bankruptcies? companies breaking into multiple entities? Massive power/service outages? A spike of problems in the areas above and increased market volatility are likely around Jan 18-29, 2020. Then, in Apr 2021 (esp. 8-11), there may be renewed tensions and fighting over oil or about oil prices. These tensions may be accompanied by a large market drop on Apr 8 and/or 9, 2021.

———————

JUN 15, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

USA: Jun 14-16 — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, beverages, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc. Also, increased focus on bank assets, real estate, farming, food production, and domestic matters in general. We may hear about fighting, arguments, fires, explosions, or other problems related to the areas above. 

JUN 16, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

JUN 17, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).

Jun 17-19 — There may be a reversal in some announcement or a retraction (e.g., of a report). The topic may relate to bank assets, real estate, farming, food production, grocery/food delivery, and homeland security. This could be a reversal in a permission to travel, suspension of a previous agreement, changes in the conditions of an acquisition, changes related to the sales and delivery of food or groceries, etc. 

USA: Slight concerns about earnings as well as about loans, debt, taxes, insurance, etc.

JUN 18, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

JUN 19, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may go up (65%). Greater than average move is likely regardless of the direction.

June 19-21 — Important news about leaders, prominent and famous persons, as well as businesses or projects related to communication, transportation, IT, high tech, airplanes, and retail sales. For ex., a highly desirable new car or phone is announced, a leader makes a surprise trip, a leader signs an important new agreement or breaks a previous one, a new rising leader gives an inspiring speech, news and media outlets change how they moderate posts (esp. those by leaders or famous individuals), airlines announce changes in leadership, etc. News or events may also have to do with education or young people — so, a post by a young activist may go viral, some important education system change is announced, etc. In general, initiatives and announcements made at this time will likely be perceived positively or as desirable.

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from the prior week):

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

June 08-12, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on June 8-13, esp. 8, and 12-13 — the events at this time may be associated with oil, water, navy, etc., for ex., an underwater volcano eruption, an earthquake on an island or near water, an accident or attack involving oil refinery, and so on.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global: All week — Strong tensions (international and within countries) with increased news about accidents, fires, fighting, etc. as well as a large market drop. These will probably revolve around some international disagreement (esp. involving oil), or, some argument/problem/fighting related to one or more of the following: gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, navy, transportation over water, fisheries, mental health, confusion, drugs, religion, music, movies, excessively wet weather, and beverages. We may hear about some conflicts or problems in these areas, such as maritime accidents, attacks on oil refineries, fighting over religion, disagreements about pharmaceuticals, spike in infectious diseases, attacks involving navy ships or personnel (or healthcare providers, or musicians/actors, or religious figures, etc.), and so on. The peak of this influence will probably be on Jun 12-13.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: All week —  Strong focus on oil and gas prices, sales, and shipments/movement/travel, as well as negotiations/agreements, accidents, attacks, and arguments. We may hear about some ongoing efforts to push for changes that would improve oil sales or transportation. There will probably also be increased news about fighting, disagreements, accidents, and even attacks on related businesses or infrastructure (e.g., a gas leak results in an explosion and fire, oil leak/spill contaminates a large body of water, fighting located on or near a body of water interrupts oil delivery, and so on). This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change, or fight around early to mid-June. In particular, June 8-15 may see an increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-12 could see a large market drop. 

———————

JUN 08, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Increased news about nuclear power, mining, underground activities, hacking, spying, taxes, insurance, fraud, terrorism, etc. There may be more news about various “powers” — be it nuclear power plant, powerful leaders, or some energy source. The news may focus on who the real leader is, where the real source of power comes from, or who should be in power.

Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

JUN 09, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (60-65%). In the early morning — increased focus on banks, finance, cryptocurrencies, as well as IT, high tech, telecoms, social media, etc. The news may involve some unpleasant surprises (e.g., unexpected losses or abrupt connectivity issues).

JUN 10, 2019 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

USA: Jun 1-12 — Increased focus on leadership, esp. in the areas of communication/transportation, retail sales, as well as banks, real estate, farming, and food production. We may hear about public speeches, negotiations, agreements, and contracts. Some issue may be clarified, signed into law, or an  agreement may be reached. This may involve agricultural products and tariffs or taxes.

JUN 11, 2019 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (65%).  

JUN 12, 2019 (FR): Very Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%). Greater than average moves are likely regardless of the direction.

Jun 12-13 may see a peak of hostile activities or accidents involving oil, gas, navy, chemicals, water, beverages, poisons, religion, pharmaceuticals, etc. The situation or events may take places near water, on a ship, under water, etc. and end up contaminating water (possibly with oil or chemicals). This may involve military activities, shooting, explosions, and fires.

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW Global/China: Jun 15- July 10 (esp. June 28-30) and then Nov 04 – 20 (esp. Nov 11-13), 2020 — Increased news about nuclear power, radiation, power plants, recycling plants, shifts in governmental leadership (power changes hands at the top), secretive activities, spying/hacking, underground activities (burials, mining, waste storage, etc.), terrorist activities, and religious activities (not necessarily spiritual but more related to “correct behaviors” or “correct values”), and so on. The nature of the news may be expansion (e.g., new religious rules, new regulations for the power plants, new leadership at governmental or corporate level, an accident that leads to the increase in radiation, etc.), or, death/transformation/rebirth (e.g., death of a prominent leader [esp. religious, diplomat, judge, or professor], closure of related businesses, the end of some program, restarting of a nuclear plant, etc.). The changes will likely involve international partners or groups/community, and may involve changes in regulations (e.g., related to immigration or movement/shipment across borders). With China’s chart transits at the same time, it is possible that one or more scenarios above will involve China (e.g., the country may introduce new regulations on trash recycling, opens a new trading route that possibly goes over the mountains, or deploys some powerful navy vessel).

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

June 01-05, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on May 25-27 (esp. the 26th) — at this time, the situation may involve excessively wet and windy weather (or fog), occur on or near water, and involve a powerful burst of energy.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global: All week — Rising tensions (to culminate the week of June 8 when we can expect even more news about accidents, fires, fighting, etc. as well as a large market drop). These will probably revolve around some international disagreement (esp. involving oil), or, some argument/problem/fighting related to one or more of the following: gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, navy, transportation over water, fisheries, mental health, confusion, drugs, religion, music, movies, excessively wet weather, and beverages. As we get closer and closer to mid-June, we may hear more and more about some conflicts or problems in these areas, such as maritime accidents, attacks on oil refineries, fighting over religion, disagreements about pharmaceuticals, spike in infectious diseases, attacks involving navy ships or personnel (or healthcare providers, or musicians/actors, or religious figures, etc.), and so on. There may also be increased focus on the value of gold (esp. June 2-4) and possibly disagreements about the direction of the gold prices or some arguments/anger/fighting that involve gold.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: All week —  increased focus on oil and gas prices, sales, and shipments/movement/travel. We may hear about some ongoing efforts to push for changes that would improve oil sales or transportation. This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change, or fight around early to mid-June. In particular, June 8-15 (esp. June 8 and 10-11) may see an increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop. Until then, there will probably be a period of uncertainty about oil and gas value — esp. around May 19-27. The uncertainty (about the oil prices and/or where to park the money safely) may correspond to a drop in the markets. Possibly around June 3, some activities may accelerate (negotiations to influence oil prices?) and/or there may be increased assertive or aggressive moves related to oil prices and transportation/communication. If there are related negotiations at this time, they may come to a head, be full of confusion, involve deception, and may result in heated disagreements about the value/prices. 

———————

JUN 01, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

USA: Increased news about international agreements and negotiations (e.g., some agreement is signed or a deal is reached), immigration, legal initiatives (e.g., some new laws or regulations are implemented), and higher education (e.g., some new initiatives related to colleges are announced).

China: May 31 – June 02 (esp. June 1) — Increased probability of tense negotiations with partners: Either the partners or China may end some project, end an agreement, postpone negotiations, introduce delays, or impose some limitations on the partnership activities. There is also an increased probability of earthquakes and accidents involving old buildings, problems with infrastructure, and accidents related to old/weak structures (esp. worn-out metal or stone parts). On June 1, there may also be increased fast-paced news and above average activity in the stock market (esp. related to IT companies, telecoms, retail, communication, and transportation businesses), as well as news about casinos, racing, sports, entertainment industry, and movies (e.g., some new agreement or sale is announced). 

JUN 02, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

June 2-4 (esp. the 3rd) — Concerns about the value of businesses and products related to communication/transportation, retail sales, IT, and education. 

Jun 2-7 — Anger or fighting over leadership and criticism of/attacks on leaders. On June 2-3, the attacks may be triggered more by financial losses, gains made through illicit means, misuse of money, holding onto money instead of using it toward some goal, or not moving fast enough [and missing a profitable opportunity]. On June 4-7 (esp. the 5 and 7), the attacks may focus more on the leaders’ communication or agreements they sign/negotiate. During the same time frame, expect increased news of attacks on, accidents, and fires at businesses related to retail sales, communication/transportation, education, places of worship, prisons, hospitals, ships, locations near water, navy-related objects, music/movie venues, gas stations, etc. Attacks or fires may involve individuals who are under some influence, mentally unstable, or whose work relates to hospitals, music, navy, pharmaceuticals, religion, etc. Accidents or attacks may involve flammable liquids, oil or gas leaks/explosions, poisonous materials, water pollution, etc. These upsetting activities will continue into the week of June 8 — at that time, there will be less focus on attacks/accidents involving retail sales, communication/transportation, and education businesses/places/individuals, but more focus on oil, gas, navy, pharmaceuticals, religion, prisons, drugs, etc.

JUN 03, 2019 (WED): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

JUN 04, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

JUN 05, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Greater than average moves are likely regardless of the direction.

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

Global: Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

May 25-29, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on May 25-27 (esp. the 26th) — at this time, the situation may involve excessively wet and windy weather (or fog), occur on or near water, and involve a powerful burst of energy.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: All week —  increased focus on oil and gas prices, sales, and shipments/movement/travel. We may hear about some ongoing efforts to push for changes that would improve oil sales or transportation. This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change, or fight around early to mid-June. In particular, June 8-15 (esp. June 8 and 10-11) may see an increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop. Until then, there will probably be a period of uncertainty about oil and gas value — esp. around May 19-27. The uncertainty (about the oil prices and/or where to park the money safely) may correspond to a drop in the markets. Possibly around June 3, some activities may accelerate (negotiations to influence oil prices?) and/or there may be increased assertive or aggressive moves related to oil prices and transportation/communication. If there are related negotiations at this time, they may come to a head, be full of confusion, involve deception, and may result in heated disagreements about the value/prices.

MAY 25, 2019 (MON): Holiday: US markets closed.

May 25-27 (esp. the 26th) — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions and seismic activity, incl. violent attacks, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents (incl. nuclear power-related, explosions, and fires), and bad weather involving too much precipitation and wind. Also, increased probability of important news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — these may be stressful and bring the market down (esp. on the 26th).

USA: May 25-27 — Increased focus on businesses and projects related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, high tech, electricity, electric cars, social media, gadgets, etc. There may be news about accidents or surprising developments due to system overload, power outages, insufficient power, weak engine, fire (possibly due to some gas or liquid leaking), risky activities, foggy weather, confusing communication/directions, etc. 

MAY 26, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%).

May 27-28 — Increased probability of an important announcement or news related to communication and transportation businesses (incl. cars, airplanes, drones, newspapers, etc.), IT, social media platforms (esp. for young people), education, and retail sales. We may hear about a new project or initiative that involve innovative technologies, education-related activities, flying objects, or multiple fast moving objects (likely moving in the air or with the wind). For ex., some new delivery approach or sales break a previous record, a car/drone/rocket/etc. travels faster than ever, new car/phone/tablet/etc. sales exceed expectations, new on-line education platform is announced, etc. We may also hear about unusually windy weather — for ex., strong winds in places that typically don’t experience windy conditions or winds that blow at a record-breaking speed.

MAY 29, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

USA: May 29 — Increased focus on businesses and projects related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, high tech, electricity, electric cars, social media, gadgets, etc. There may be news about a prominent leader, new leader, or a new project/initiative. The news may involve a clarification about who the leader is or what their status is. A new project may be related to transportation/communication, retail sales, or education.

May 30-31 — Likely, a time of rising tensions (to culminate the week of June 8). These will probably revolve around some international disagreement (esp. involving oil), or, some argument/problem/fighting related to one or more of the following: gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, navy, transportation over water, fisheries, mental health, confusion, drugs, religion, music, movies, excessively wet weather, and beverages. As we get closer and closer to mid-June, we may hear more and more about some conflicts or problems in these areas, such as maritime accidents, attacks on oil refineries, fighting over religion, disagreements about pharmaceuticals, spike in infectious diseases, attacks involving navy ships or personnel (or healthcare providers, or musicians/actors, or religious figures, etc.), and so on.

May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

———————

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

Global: Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

May 18-22, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on May 18.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

Global: All week, esp. May 20-22 —  increased focus on oil and gas, 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. The value (price or importance) of the related businesses or products may be questioned, appear unrealistic (much higher/lower than the real value), or impossible to assess [at the moment]. There may be disagreements about the value (e.g., is the product/investment worth it, should the money be spent on the related products, etc.), and/or the situation may be too unstable/confusing for the value to be determined. Investments/expenditures or acquisitions in the areas above at this time may be driven by false hopes or misleading info.  

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: All week, esp. May 20-22 —  increased focus on oil and gas prices, sales, and shipments/movement/travel. On the 22nd, there may be some intense negotiations aiming to influence the price of oil and gas. We may hear about a push for doing more to move some projects forward (or to produce or move related goods). This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change, or fight around early to mid-June. In particular, June 8-15 (esp. June 10-11) may see increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop. In the meantime, there will be a period of uncertainty about oil and gas values — esp. around May 19-27. The uncertainty (about the oil prices and/or where to park the money in safely) may correspond to a drop in the markets. Possibly around June 3, some activities may accelerate (negotiations to influence oil prices?) and/or there may be increased assertive or aggressive moves related to oil prices and transportation/communication. If there are related negotiations at this time, they may come to a head, be full of confusion, involve deception, and may result in heated disagreements about the value/prices. 

———————

MAY 18, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55%). 

USA: May 4-21 (esp. 8 and 18) and then July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

MAY 19, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

May 19-22 (esp. the 20th and 22nd), 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, wet weather, etc. Possibly a strong market drop on May 20, 21, and/or 22.

MAY 20, 2019 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). 

May 20-22 — Busy news days. Increased focus on transportation, communication, retail sales, deals, agreements, social media, journalists, students/educators, as well as telecoms, electric car manufacturers, airlines, IT companies, etc. There may be increased news about various acquisitions, deals, agreements, sales, etc. related to the areas above. The final price, however, may not be determined for quite sometime and when it is (possibly around the end of July 2020), it may be much lower than the initial value. 

USA: May 20-22 — More assertive (but not aggressive) stance in negotiations with international partners. This approach may prove to be beneficial at this time.

MAY 21, 2019 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). 

MAY 22, 2019 (FR): Very Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%). Large market moves are likely regardless of the direction. Leaders of the businesses related to telecoms, electric car manufacturers, airlines, IT companies, etc. will likely be featured in the news more prominently than usual. The news may involve a leader announcing a new long-term project, slowing down the implementation of a project (to be more careful or implement additional safety), or introducing stricter rules/greater controls.

Also, today there may be an exceptionally strong focus on oil gas, chemicals, pharma, navy, cruise ships, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — we may hear about a major sale, merge, split, acquisition, etc. involving companies in the areas above. There may also be problems with transportation over water, maritime accidents, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, poisoning or pollution (esp. involving an area related to transportation or school), or health issues featuring prominently young people/schools/teachers/journalists or communication/transportation in general. For ex., a gas leak poisons an area that’s a major transportation hub, bad weather interferes with transportation over water, value of some cruise ship or movie company is announced to be much lower than expected, sales of some drug are much higher/lower than expected, etc.

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

Global: May 25-27 (esp. the 26th), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions and seismic activity, incl. attacks, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, and bad weather involving too much precipitation and wind. Also, increased probability of important news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — these may be stressful and bring the market down (esp. on the 26th).

Global: May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

Global: Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

May 11-15, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on May 14-17.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: May 12-13 could see increased news about oil and gas. These may involve re-evaluation of some current approaches [how things are done, such as how oil is extracted] and push for doing more to move some projects forward (or to produce or move related goods). This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change, or fight around early to mid-June. In particular, June 8-15 (esp. June 10-11) may see increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop. In the meantime, there will be a period of uncertainty about oil and gas values — esp. around May 19-27. The uncertainty (about the oil prices and/or where to park the money in safely) may correspond to a drop in the markets. Possibly around June 3, some activities may accelerate (negotiations to influence oil prices?) and/or there may be increased assertive or aggressive moves related to oil prices and transportation/communication. If there are related negotiations at this time, they may come to a head, be full of confusion, involve deception, and may result in heated disagreements about the value/prices. 

———————

MAY 11, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (60%). 

May 11-12 — Increased focus on industries related to retail sales, as well as communication and transportation, incl. cars, planes, phones, social media, newspapers, TV networks, gadgets, apps, on-line shopping, etc. We may hear about improved conditions in these areas and/or some new projects/products. The new projects may be long-term, supported by the government (esp. when it comes to aerospace, airlines, and cars), and/or involve industrial scale manufacturing. There may be reports that communication and movement of people/goods is happening faster than in the previous month; more people may travel/shop/move about; there may be more new apps announced specifically related to shopping, communicating, or traveling; and so on.

USA: May 4-21 (esp. 8 and 18) and then July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

USA: May 11 — Possibly, minor positive news about the oil industry and/or areas related to gas, pharma, chemicals, beverages, navy, etc. This may include improved profits, leadership making choices supportive of these industries (e.g., increased financing), or some clarity gained on how to move forward to increase gains.

MAY 12, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). Probably an up day, but compared to Monday the mood may be more practical and realistic with stronger focus on long-term projects and less appetite for risky short term investments.

May 12-13 — There may be increased focus on profits and value in the following areas: retail sales, as well as communication and transportation. We may hear about unexpected changes in value, turn-abouts in some pending negotiations, cancellation of agreements, or changes in logistics of how something is communicated, sold, or delivered. 

May 12-13 — Increased news about activities related to oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, beverages, navy, etc. These may involve re-evaluation of some current approaches and push for doing more in these areas to move some projects forward (or to produce or move related goods). This push may result in some prominent achievement, explosion, change or fight around early to mid-June. In the meantime, there will be a period of uncertainty about oil and gas values (and/or other topics mentioned above such as some medicine or beverage) — esp. around May 19-27. The uncertainty (about the oil prices and/or about where to park the money in safely) may correspond to a drop in the markets. Possibly around June 3, some activities may accelerate (negotiations to influence oil prices?) and/or there may be increased assertive or aggressive moves related to oil prices and transportation/communication. If there are related negotiations at this time, they may come to a head, be full of confusion, involve deception, and may result in heated disagreements about the value/prices.

MAY 13, 2019 (WED): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

MAY 14, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

MAY 15, 2019 (FR):  Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). UP influence is stronger in the afternoon. In the morning, the market may be concerned about some confusing news (such as uncertainty about the value or poor earnings) related to retail sales, communication/transportation, as well as oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, beverages, navy, etc. 

———————

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

Global: May 19-22 (esp. the 20th and 22nd), 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, wet weather, etc. Possibly a strong market drop on May 20th and 22nd.

Global: May 25-27 (esp. the 26th), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions and seismic activity, incl. attacks, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, and bad weather involving too much precipitation and wind. Also, increased probability of important news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — these may be stressful and bring the market down (esp. on the 26th).

Global: May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

Global: Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

May 04-08, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on May 4-5.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August (esp. 13-21) may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: On May 4-5, there may be increased concerns about the value or sales of oil and gas. Some large purchase/sale of related products or business (or a large number of small transactions) may be seen as priced incorrectly — like the value is overestimated, the company isn’t worth what it’s sold for, products are overpriced, real value cannot be estimated at this time, etc. There may also be increased confusion about the “real” value, either due to some deceptive activities or due to generally confusing circumstances. Looking even further ahead, June 8-15 (esp. June 10-11) may see increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop.

———————

MAY 04, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). Up influence is stronger in the afternoon. Busy  news day with focus on finance, banks, currencies value, monetary policies, and earnings. The news may be slightly negative or confusing — the value can’t be fully assessed, some info is missing, or data are intentionally obscured.

May 4-5 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc.

USA: May 4-21 (esp. 8 and 18) and then July 27-30 — Positive news (e.g., improved earnings, additional funding, increased value, permissions granted, or other beneficial developments) in the areas related to sports, racing, engines, military, as well as stock market, entertainment industry, and casinos.

MAY 05, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

MAY 06, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). Increased possibility of surprising news or sudden developments related to finance, earnings, banks, stock value, debt/loans, as well as IT, electric cars, electric power plants, aerospace, electronic gadgets, telecoms, etc. Developments may involve unexpected turn-abouts, cancellations, or faster than expected decisions reached about some projects. 

Global/USA: May 6-9 (esp. 7-8) — Possibly a major drop in gold prices or at least a greater than usual value change regardless of the direction. Also, increased probability of USD value fluctuations and/or an important announcement related to US monetary policy, banks, loans/debt, rates, earnings, etc. At the same time, for the USA — Increased news about the stock market, partnership agreements, and military (e.g., funding for the military, profitable agreements, financial deals, etc.).

China: 6-8 — Increased focus on earnings, international relations, and long distance shipments/transportation. There may be news about minor disappointments, such as international agreements not proceeding as well as expected, or lower than expected earnings (esp. in the areas related to retail sales, communication/transportation, food production, and real estate).

MAY 07, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

MAY 08, 2019 (FR):  Strong influence; market may go up (55%).

Global: May 19-22 (esp. the 20th and 22nd), 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, wet weather, etc. Possibly a strong market drop on May 20th and 22nd.

Global: May 25-27 (esp. the 26th), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions and seismic activity, incl. attacks, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, and bad weather involving too much precipitation and wind. Also, increased probability of important news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — these may be stressful and bring the market down (esp. on the 26th).

Global: May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2), 2020 — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

Global: Jun 8 – 15, 2020 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

NEW USA: Jul 20-22, 2020 — Increased probability of stressful news about the leadership or about prominent persons. Possibly, heightened conflicts with international partners. Markets may react with a large move, probably a drop, on Jul 20-21.

NEW Global: Jul 26-29, 2020 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

NEW USA: Jul 28-31, 2020 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, navy, marine life, water pollution, etc. as well as real estate, food production, and homeland security. There may be concerns about decreased earnings, loss of value, lack of financing, or excessive prices. 

Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.

Apr 27 – May 01, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. 

Global: 2019-2020 — Slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This conjunction’s effect will persist through 2020 (esp. in January when it is exact). Previous times of hard transits between Saturn and Pluto (0, 90, and 180 degrees) have coincided with increase in military activities, terrorist attacks, and seismic activity. Thus, this time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits to Pluto/Saturn conjunction from Mars  and Jupiter, there may be an increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) transiting through Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.

Global: Mid-May, 2018  through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”? 😜😂 Update (06.23.19): On June 18, 2019 Facebook announced a digital currency called Libra set to launch in 2020. 

With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.

Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.

Global: Dec 2019 through Dec 2020 — Increased focus on government, laws (esp. international laws, laws governing relations among entities comprising one country or union, laws governing status of governmental leaders, etc.), immigration status, older judges, controls imposed on international travel, limitations of higher education or struggles of higher ed institutions, etc. This is a beginning of a background influence that will be in place for about a year and will bring greater limitations or restructuring to the areas above — so tighter checks at the border, stricter immigration rules, decrease in the flow of immigrants, tougher standards for higher ed institutions (or decrease in enrollment or some other problems), increase in the number of governmental bodies and of their powers (esp. conservative), favorable time for large established  corporations (less risk, predictability, large governmental contracts, etc.), international negotiations taking on more reserved tone, harsher non-compliance penalties for international partners, etc. Also, focus on mining, steel/metals, coal, minerals, large scale construction projects (involving governments and large corporations), and excavation in general — these businesses may see expansions, restructuring, and/or new laws may be put in place that affect them (e.g., to facilitate shipments of products over long distances).

USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep  2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.  

Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable. 

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.). 

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China. 

China: 2020 — Increased news about hidden activities/lies, religion, movies, music, beverages, poisons and drugs. For ex., a powerful pollutant/chemical/poison/drug is identified as causing more damage than it was previously known or revealed, leading to increased control over its production/distribution or its removal; or, it is discovered that waste is not recycled properly and is polluting the environment (esp. water) to a greater than expected degree; or, it is discovered that an epidemic is spreading on a larger scale than it had previously been revealed (SARS-like outbreak?) — this may affect international and/or long-distance transportation; or, some deceptive international activity (e.g., hacking) yields greater than expected results (brings more power); etc. Given the recent news about an unidentified “new type of coronavirus” spreading in China, this may indeed grow into a larger issue over the next few months. At the same time, the true extent and/or the origin of the virus may remain hidden. Additionally, here is an increased probability of a large earthquake, mudslide, or some other disaster/accident that involves old structures, earth, nuclear power plants/weapons, recycling businesses, underground storage, waste storage or disposal locations, and long distance transportation (esp. in the mountains, tunnels, underground, over water, or under water). All of these issues will continue to be hot topics in the upcoming months; however, this week may see a spike of concrete news or events with follow up events unfolding in subsequent months (e.g., in March of 2020).

China: Mar 2020 – Jan 2021 (esp. late Apr – early June 2020; and late Dec 2020 – early Jan 2021) — Increased focus on reforms, new goals, new vision, new leadership, participation in new international organizations (or under a new status), and new governmental structures or regulations (e.g., restructuring of the existing governmental bodies, changes in leadership [esp. leaders who have been in power for the previous 7-14-21-28 or so yrs.], corporate restructuring, new controls on how something is produced, scaling up existing projects to implement innovation on the industrial scale, etc.). This may especially involve areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, innovation, AI, high tech, social media platforms, internet, data processing, etc. 

Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting in 2019, we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only,  2021- early 2022. 

With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section below, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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).

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, this influence peaks on Apr 30 – May 03.

Global: On-off all year (the next period of intensified energy is August of 2020) — Increased focus on governmental regulations, controls, embargoes, taxes, tariffs, shortages, delays, and building or reorganizing some structures (e.g., literally, building large objects such as dams or bridges, or, changing leadership or restructuring). Increased news about large established corporations going through restructuring and possible shake-ups at the top. These shake-ups may be due to natural disasters, wars, or changes in power/leadership. These changes may be accompanied by increased anti-governmental protests, violence (e.g., shootings, fires, or explosions), news about corruption, scandals involving governmental or corporate officials, attacks on governmental or corporate leaders, etc. The entire month of August may see above average number of various shakeups (incl. natural disasters and corporate restructuring). For the USA, the month of August may bring increased focus on governmental and corporate leadership changes, power shifts, and restructuring as well as rates, loans, debt, and bankruptcies (esp. related to retail sales, communication/transportation, travel, social media, news papers, car manufacturers, rental car businesses, etc.). There may also be concerns about or significant changes related to schools, real estate, farming and food production — we may hear about increased regulations, delays, shortages, lack of safety, or major changes in how these businesses function. For China, Aug 9-17 may be significant and may see increased focus on healthcare, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, pollution, recycling, etc.

USA: Jan 27, 2020 – Dec 7, 2021  (in 2020, significant dates are Feb 14 – July 7 [esp. March 20-29]; Nov 16 – Dec 12) —  Significant news are possible related to international agreements, negotiations, diplomatic relations, partnerships, retail sales, media outlets, and communications/transportation in general. We may hear about an end of a cycle, bankruptcy, problems with taxes, concerns about loans/rates, death, spying, or hacking related to important businesses/entities in the areas above. For ex., we may hear about secret communication, secret manipulation, whistleblowing, etc. Some secret info may be revealed and/or the news may relate to companies that deal with underground locations (e.g., a coal or a mining company), trash, recycling, or nuclear power. Additionally, there may be increased news about maternal health, procreation, sexually transmitted diseases, or safety of children. We may hear about a revival of some old approach (e.g., an old retired leader is brought back), reorganization, or restructuring of a business in these same areas. The restructuring may be needed because of stricter governmental regulations, increased safety controls, efforts to prevent spying/hacking, initiatives to improve homeland security, efforts to improve the safety of women and children, etc. There may be concerns about increased governmental controls (e.g., controls imposed on financial flows, real estate investments, or food production), stricter guidelines for financial institutions, reduced cash flow, changes in taxes (incl. sales tax), insurance fraud, debt/loans, etc. 

China: This week, increased focus on healthcare, treatments, earrings, investments, and partnerships/agreements. Some disagreements may be brought up that have been a matter of contention for a while; partnerships may be challenged by these unresolved lingering issues. These may center around the matters above, such as profits or losses from healthcare and medicines, prices of pharmaceuticals, or investments in pharmaceuticals. There may also be increased news about the health of a prominent leader or a celebrity.

China/CORONAVIRUS outbreak: Issues related to the viral illness outbreak will likely persist throughout the entire year. There may be escalations or some sort of increased activities around Mar 9 – 27 (esp. Mar 17-22), Jul 6 – 24 (esp. Jul 11-12), and Oct 26 – Nov 20 (esp. Nov 9-13), which may be followed by positive news of a lucky break, improvement, drop/rise in death toll, regulations, radical measures, or a major transformation of the status quo (e.g., a reform in how something is handled). The period of Aug-Nov of 2020 will probably be the most intense.

OIL prices: All week, esp. Thur-Fr — Strong focus on the value of oil, gas, chemicals, etc. (as well as other neptunian domains, such as pharma, drugs, deception, religion, movies, videos, music, and so on). On Apr 30 – May 4 (esp. Apr 30 – May 1), there may be increased concerns about the value or sales of oil and gas. Some large purchase/sale of related products or business (or a large number of small transactions) may be seen as priced incorrectly — like the value is overestimated, the company isn’t worth what it’s sold for, products are overpriced, etc. There may also be increased confusion about the “real” value, either due to some deceptive activities or due to generally confusing circumstances. These concerns may coincide with a market drop on Apr 30 – May 01). Looking even further ahead, June 8-15 (esp. June 10-11) may see increased focus on oil prices and news about upsets, accidents, burning of, or fighting over oil; June 10-11 could see a large market drop.

———————

APR 27, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%).  

APR 28, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). Increased concerns about the cash flow, financial agreements, financial institutions, and financial regulations. The focus may be on delayed payments, money transfers that face obstacles or limitations (probably due to some governmental regulations), delayed or reduced financing of governmental projects, etc. In the US, there may be increased discussions about enabling states to file for bankruptcy — long term, in Dec 2020-Feb 2021 there may indeed be increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies (or getting bailouts). 

APR 29, 2019 (WED): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

APR 30, 2019 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Large market moves likely, regardless of the direction. Thur and/or Fr may see a large drop followed by a swing to up (probably Thur/Fr down to Mon up). Oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, navy, etc. will feature prominently in the news.

Apr 30 – May 1 — Surprising or sudden developments related to  aerospace, cars, social media, IT, high tech, electronic gadgets, electric cars, electric power companies, etc. as well as finance and banks. Possibly, strong winds lead to power outages or accidents; or, there may be sudden airborne attacks; or, we may hear about innovations or service disruptions in these areas (e.g., drones, cryptocurrencies, online shopping, etc.). 

Apr 30 – May 4 — Increased concerns about the value or sales of oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, beverages, etc. There may also be increased news about navy, ships, transportation over water, water pollution, religion, mental health, beverages, poisons, and so on — the news will likely be stressful or involve some sort of a [likely financial] problem, like a purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; costs of some medicine skyrocket or fall dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc.

MAY 01, 2019 (FR):  Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Large market moves likely, regardless of the direction. There may be a reversal from Fr to Mon (probably down on Fr to up by Mon). Oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, navy, etc. will feature prominently in the news.

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

Global/USA: May 6-9 (esp. the 8th) — Possibly a major drop in gold prices or at least a greater than usual value change regardless of the direction. Also, increased probability of USD value fluctuations and/or an important announcement related to US monetary policy, banks, earnings, etc. At the same time, for the USA — Increased news about the stock market, partnership agreements, and military (e.g., funding for the military, profitable agreements, financial deals, etc.).

Global: May 19-22 (esp. the 20th and 22nd) — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, wet weather, etc. Possibly a strong market drop on May 20th and 22nd.

Global: May 25-27 (esp. the 26th) — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions and seismic activity, incl. attacks, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, and bad weather involving too much precipitation and wind. Also, increased probability of important news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, navy, religion, movies, beverages, etc. — these may be stressful and bring the market down (esp. on the 26th).

Global: May 31-June 5 (esp. 1-2) — Increased probability of the rise in global tensions, important geopolitical events, and seismic activity, incl. leadership changes, anti-governmental protests, earthquakes, accidents, etc. Also, increased focus on earnings or expenses, esp. in the areas related to communication/transportation. Gold value may also be in focus — there may be some suspense or some issue (e.g., earnings) may be evaluated and gold value may reflect the progress in the situation. 

Global: Jun 8 – 15 — Issues or events that took place around Jan 25-28, 2020) may see follow up or similar developments. For ex., there may be increased news about the coronavirus epidemic or some other outbreak (likely some disease that involves fever, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. and is spread via water contamination, such as cholera); important announcements about healthcare/pharma; increased news about accidents or attacks involving fires, explosions, athletes, etc.; as well as increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, religion, pollution, navy, water, fishing, beverages, drugs, poisons, [mental] health facilities, prisons, monasteries, etc. June 9-12 in particular may be major stock market moves (probably a drop) as well as increased news about oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, etc.

NEW Global: Dec 2020-Feb 2021 — Increased news about large corporations and/or governments declaring bankruptcies and/or getting bailouts. In particular, areas related to IT, telecoms, electric power, social networks, aerospace, etc. may be affected. More generally, there may be a lot of restructuring in these areas. Changes may be accompanied by service outages. Outages may also be caused by turbulent weather (winds, electric storms, ice storms) and/or increased seismic activity. 

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc.  

USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.
