Aug 03-07, 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: 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 — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, immigration, 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.” Decisions made earlier in the year 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).

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. 

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 Aug 3-4.

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).

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, 2021. 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.

———————

AUG 03, 2019 (MON): Very Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). Increased market volatility and larger than usual market moves regardless of the direction. It’s possible that the market swings up earlier in the day, followed by profit taking and a large drop in the afternoon (or, market goes up on Mon followed by profit taking on Tue). Market moves on Monday will probably be affected by some developments in the US in the areas of finance, banking, rates, debt, loans, taxes, monetary policies, currencies, etc. (e.g., additional fiscal stimulus? earnings reports?). The events on the 3rd may be as a reaction to some developments over the weekend of Aug 1-2 — possibly, some new law or international agreement may be signed or take effect at that time. Finally, there may be increased news about military or weapons (e.g., some related new law is passed, an international agreement is reached, or a large shipment of weapons is scheduled).

Jul 30 – Aug 01 (esp. the 31st) — Increased focus on sales, communication about or transportation of materials derived from under ground, such as rocks and metals, or, on businesses/events related to mining, excavation, recycling, nuclear power, or secretive/illegal activities (spying/hacking/terrorism). Some agreements relate to these businesses may be in the works, or, there may be increased coverage in the news. The news may be slightly stressful, such as agreements aren’t proceeding well or a deal is reached through manipulation/pressure and is biased. The pressure/manipulation may come from some large established entity, such as a large corporation or government. Additionally, there may be some dispute or suspicious situation involving spying, hacking, or illegal sales (e.g., of land, building, or bank assets). Lastly, there may be increased focus on rates, debt, loans, taxes, insurance, etc. — the news may be slightly stressful, such as some new approach is requested [by the public] (tax break? change in loan terms? better rates?), but the request is not answered. 

AUG 04, 2019 (TUE): Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

Aug 4-5 — Increased focus on earnings and expenses of companies related to IT, retail sales, social media, cars, airplanes, education, and communication/transportation in general. We may hear about increased earnings or decisive goals to increase earnings (through more sales, allowing more travel, raising prices, etc.).

AUG 05, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

AUG 06, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Increased focus on oil, gas chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, pollution, drugs, religions, music, movies, photography, etc. There may be news about new projects or innovations; however, the details may be unclear. There may be a general feel of uncertainty or confusion today that could bring the market down.

China: Increased focus on partnerships, deals, and agreements. Some deals may be reached but China may perceive the conditions as being at odds with the country’s goals for development. Alternatively, the discussions may not result in agreements just yet, but reach a high point where China and its partner(s) are actively discussing some key issue related to China’s goals (esp. related to food, health, safety, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electricity/power, and high tech/innovative projects).

AUG 07, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%).

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW China: Aug 9-17 — Increased focus on healthcare, infectious diseases, pharma, navy, secretive activities, chemicals, oil, gas, pollution, recycling, etc. There may be a lot of tensions, fighting, and arguments around these areas. The tensions may lead to military tensions or threats. Additionally, there may be flare ups of infectious diseases, problems with pharmaceuticals/drugs, increased number of accidents, large earthquakes, mudslides, and unrest/protests (esp. in places that are normally hidden, like prisons, hospitals or monasteries). Some secretive hidden manipulative activities may become public — these may involve China as the perpetrator or as the victim; either way, there may be a lot of anger around the issue(s). Some problems may occur near or under water (e.g., islands, dams, submarine, etc.) — these may involve fires, explosions, and release of pollutants into water. There will likely be a strong emphasis on anger over secrecy and deception. Secrecy or hidden manipulations may lead to rush decisions & risky financial activities and negatively affect the earnings; alternatively, aggressive push for higher earnings may lead to cover-ups or secretive [illegal] activities.  

NEW Global: Aug 10-15 — Intensified military tensions or more frequent skirmishes, increased news about violent attacks, protests, accidents, fires, explosions etc. Fires/explosions/fighting may particularly involve governmental entities, large corporations, old established leaders, tall buildings, mountains, old/ancient buildings or sites, underground locations (like a mine, nuclear waste storage facility, or some underground archeological site), nuclear power plants, waste storage, mineral homes, prisons, etc. Additionally or alternatively, protests or fighting may involve militarized groups as well as elements involved in spying/hacking/sketchy activities. There may be fights between groups who are more openly militaristic or official army types and groups who are undercover/illegal/terrorist. There is also an increased potential of prominent athletes (esp. fighters or racers) suffering some attack or injury. Lastly, there is an increased probability of large earthquakes, mudslides, volcanic eruptions, etc.

NEW USA: Aug 10-14 — Increased probability of positive news regarding earnings, long distance travel, import/export, immigration, and international affairs. A profitable deal may be reached, long distance travel conditions may improve, or some new act is passed that is seen as improving immigration policy.

NEW USA: Aug 13-21 — 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.

NEW USA: Aug 17-18 — Increased probability of positive news for the areas related to IT, telecoms, social media, airplanes, aerospace, high tech, etc. Companies in these areas may report greater than expected profits or some project may be reported to be doing better than expected.

NEW Global: Aug 22-28 — Tense times; continuing anti-governmental protests. Increased probability of large earthquakes, mudslides, volcanic eruptions, as well as attacks, protests [esp. anti-governmental or anti some large corporation], disasters (like large old structures collapsing),  and various difficulties involving military, weapons, and/or athletes who are extra macho and/or old, are fighters, racers, etc. Some situation may arise where a group that is protesting, attacking, or pushing aggressively for improvements may become a subject of harsh restrictions of have their effort stifled. Accidents or disasters in the news during this time may involve hot and fast moving objects coming to an abrupt stop (e.g., a hot racing car runs into a wall, an engine fails because an old steel part abruptly snaps under too much pressure, etc.).

NEW USA: Aug 25 – Sep 4 — Increased news about financial institutions, banks, earnings, assets, rates, etc. There may be concerns about illegal manipulative activities, hidden money, illegal payments, corruption, debt, loss of earnings because of some governmental regulations, arguments over military costs, etc. There may be fighting over some fiscal policy or the policy may come out that adjusts military funding or expenses associated with weapons. 

NEW Global: Aug 28-31 — Increased news about financial institutions, banks, earnings, assets, rates, etc. There may be concerns about illegal manipulative activities, hidden money, debt, loss of earnings because of some governmental regulations, and so on. At the same time, there may be increased news about oil, gas chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, pollution, drugs, religions, music, movies, photography, etc. The news may have to do with sales, agreements, and profits — there may be slight concerns about these areas. 

NEW China: Aug 28-31 — Increased news about oil, gas chemicals, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, pollution, recycling, navy, lies/deception, prisons, secretive locations or activities, drugs, religions, music, movies, photography, etc. The news may have to do with uncontrolled expansion, excessive expenses, escape, crossing or expanding the borders, pushing the limits, etc. There may be announcements about large investments in or profits associated with areas above (e.g., vaccines, innovations in medicine, new recycling methods, navy-related activities, gas/oil/chemicals, etc.).

NEW USA: Aug 30-31 — Increased probability of positive news for the areas related to retail sales, social media, cars, airplanes, education, and communication/transportation in general. We may near about increased earnings, greater stability, or improved conditions favoring growth.

NEW Global: Sep 1-3 — Concerns about decreased earnings, decreased cash flow, problems with financial institutions or banks, or issues with assets, rates, savings, etc. The mood may be more practical/realistic with focus on slow long term growth and safe investments (esp. real estate or land).  

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.

July 27-31, 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: 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 — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, immigration, 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.” Decisions made earlier in the year 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).

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. 

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 27.

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).

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, 2021. 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.

———————

JUL 27, 2019 (MON): Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%). Likely, larger than usual market moves regardless of the direction. Down influence is stronger in the pre-open and early morning; the direction may turn to up in the afternoon or on Tue.

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, transportation of oil or gas or chemicals, 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 sale/purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; oil/gas/chemicals cannot be transported; oil transportation costs are deemed too high; the price of some medicine skyrockets or falls dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. There may also be concerns about reduced profits, esp. for retail sales, education, and communication/transportation-related businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

USA: Jul 27-28 (esp. the 28th) — 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. Their value may increase or they may report higher than expected profits. There may also be increased news about agreements with international partners — deals reached at this time may appear to be profitable at first glance but the initial optimism may be based on false assumptions, confusion, omissions, or lies. The confusing/deceptive part will probably involve the true cost/expense or the value — the expenses may end up being much higher or the value may end up being significantly different from the initial estimates. The deals may involve weapons/military as well as oil, gas, chemicals, navy, etc.

China: Jul 27-28 — Possibly, some important public announcement or an event that affects large groups of people and is related to the country’s goals and ambitions (esp. in the area of finance and banking). This will probably involve the goals of increasing profits, better managing financial investments, regulating risky financial activities, offering financial help, etc.

JUL 28, 2019 (TUE): Strong influence; market may go up (60%). 

USA: Jul 28-31 (esp. the 29th), 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. 

JUL 29, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

Jul 29-30 — Increased focus on some international deal or agreement.  This may relate to immigration, education, travel, communication, and transportation. It may involve legalizing something, implementing a new law, opening/closing retail locations or travel hubs, or opening/shutting transportation routes.

JUL 30, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

Jul 30 – Aug 01 (esp. the 31st) — Increased focus on sales, communication about or transportation of materials derived from under ground, such as rocks and metals, or, on businesses/events related to mining, excavation, recycling, nuclear power, or secretive/illegal activities (spying/hacking/terrorism). Some agreements relate to these businesses may be in the works, or, there may be increased coverage in the news. The news may be slightly stressful, such as agreements aren’t proceeding well or a deal is reached through manipulation/pressure and is biased. The pressure/manipulation may come from some large established entity, such as a large corporation or government. Additionally, there may be some dispute or suspicious situation involving spying, hacking, or illegal sales (e.g., of land, building, or bank assets). Lastly, there may be increased focus on rates, debt, loans, taxes, insurance, etc. — the news may be slightly stressful, such as some new approach is requested [by the public] (tax break? change in loan terms? better rates?), but the request is not answered. 

JUL 31, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

———————

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

Global: Aug 3, 2020 (Mon) — Likely, increased market volatility and a large market move (possibly up). The move may be quite large, regardless of the direction. This will probably be related to the developments in the US, particularly, in the areas of finance, banking, rates, debt, loans, taxes, etc. The events on the 3rd may be as a reaction to some developments over the weekend of Aug 1-2 — possibly, some new law or international agreement may be signed or take effect at that time. 

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.

July 20-24, 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: 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 — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, immigration, 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.” Decisions made earlier in the year 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).

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. 

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 20-21.

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).

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, 2021. 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.

———————

JUL 20, 2019 (MON): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Likely, larger than usual market moves regardless of the direction. Stressful news about leaders and governmental decisions — some old leader may be ousted, an organization (e.g., bank, or an entity that grows/sells/processes food) may announce corporate restructuring plans, cuts, or losses. There may also be concerns about safety and stability, esp. of banks, homeland security, protection of families, food supplies, 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.

China: Jul 20-25 (esp. 21-23), 2020 — Stressful news related to negotiations, agreements, sales, communication/transportation, as well as  oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, beverages, navy, pollution, lies, deception, religion, etc. The country may perceive itself as being on the receiving end of some angry response, attack, or being rushed into entering into some [risky financial] agreement. There may be a maritime accident, a stand-off involving navy and bodies of water, a chemical spill, a spike in infectious diseases, a gas explosion, etc. Around Jul 21-24, there may be increased concerns about infectious diseases or poisoning — some problem (COVID-19? bubonic plague? water pollution? chemical spill?) may be in focus where there is a push for a quick resolution, but the issue is not going away quickly enough… or, the source of the issue cannot be clearly defined and therefore the solution cannot be applied in a timely manner.

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

JUL 22, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

JUL 23, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

JUL 24, 2019 (FR): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

Jul 24-28 — Increased concerns about hot and windy weather destroying crops, or, about increasing tensions in some negotiations (esp. related to banks, farming, or grocery stores). There may also be increased news about transportation accidents, fires (possibly involving banks, farmlands, grocery stores, or some food processing facility), shootings or attacks, fighting, racing, and sports. For ex., a prominent athlete may be in the news due to a car accident or verbal attacks.

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, transportation of oil or gas or chemicals, 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 sale/purchase of oil can’t go through; a ship can’t come/leave; oil/gas/chemicals cannot be transported; oil transportation costs are deemed too high; the price of some medicine skyrockets or falls dramatically; a prominent religious figure or an actor gains attention for overspending, donating, or mishandling the money; etc. There may also be concerns about reduced profits, esp. for retail sales, education, and communication/transportation-related businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Markets may see a large drop on Jul 27.

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

China: Jul 27-28 — Possibly, some important public announcement or an event that affects large groups of people and is related to the country’s goals and ambitions (esp. in the area of finance and banking). This will probably involve the goals of increasing profits, better managing financial investments, regulating risky financial activities, offering financial help, etc.

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. 

NEW Global: Aug 3, 2020 (Mon) — Likely, increased market volatility and a large market move (possibly up). The move may be quite large, regardless of the direction. This will probably be related to the developments in the US, particularly, in the areas of finance, banking, rates, debt, loans, taxes, etc. The events on the 3rd may be as a reaction to some developments over the weekend of Aug 1-2 — possibly, some new law or international agreement may be signed or take effect at that time. 

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.

July 13-17, 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: 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 — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, immigration, 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.” Decisions made earlier in the year 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).

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. 

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 13-15.

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).

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, 2021. 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.

———————

JUL 13, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

Jul 13-14 — Increased focus on healthcare related to wounds, head trauma, migraines, and injuries from wars, accidents, and sports activities as well as burns, shootings, etc. We may hear about new treatments that work fast or about a push to develop treatments fast. There may also be increased news about a prominent athlete’s or a military person’s health. 

Jul 13-15 — Increased news about powerful leaders, famous individuals, gold, and solar energy. The leaders/famous people may be more in the news than usual due to some issues related to law, judgments, immigration, long distance transportation/shipments, higher education as well as death, burial, underground locations, secretive activities, manipulative activities, illegal activities, spying, terrorism, nuclear power/weapons, recycling, taxes, insurance, loans/debt, etc. For ex., some secret is revealed related to the famous person’s background, family, and/or investments. News about gold and/or solar power-related projects may also involve legal decisions, international connections/exchanges, underground locations, secretive activities, debt, rates, etc. This may include investments as well as some archeological discoveries.

USA: Jul 13-15 — Increased news about law, judgments, immigration, long distance transportation/shipments, higher education, and foreign relations. This may involve agreements, negotiations, sale/acquisition, and communication/transportation businesses in general.

JUL 14, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

JUL 15, 2019 (WED): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

USA: Jul 15-16 (esp. morning of the 16th) — Increased news about taxes, insurance, loans/debt, rates, investments, as well as communication/transportation businesses, various agreements, retail sales, education, and younger people in general. Some issue or situation may be clarified, agreement signed, a new direction may be established, a new leader appointed, and so on.

JUL 16, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

JUL 17, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

———————

>>>> 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.

China: Jul 20-25 (esp. 21-23), 2020 — Stressful news related to negotiations, agreements, sales, communication/transportation, as well as  oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, beverages, navy, pollution, lies, deception, religion, etc. The country may perceive itself as being on the receiving end of some angry response, attack, or being rushed into entering into some [risky financial] agreement.

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.

China: Jul 27-28 — Possibly, some important public announcement or an event that affects large groups of people and is related to the country’s goals and ambitions (esp. in the area of finance and banking). This will probably involve the goals of increasing profits, better managing financial investments, regulating risky financial activities, offering financial help, etc.

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.

July 06-10, 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: 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 — Expect increased focus on businesses related to communication, transportation, IT, retail sales, education, religion, immigration, 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.” Decisions made earlier in the year 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).

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. 

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 6-8.

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).

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, 2021. 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.

———————

JUL 06, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

Jul 6-11 (esp. Jul 8) — Increased focus on communication, transportation, agreements, negotiations, and education. There may be arguments, disagreements, heated verbal exchanges, accidents, and problems. Accidents and problems could be due to excessive winds and/or fire; they may also involve vehicles or transportation, incl. flying objects such as planes (e.g., a car battery explodes). Fires may pose danger to farms, crops, etc. Also, accidents, windy wether and/or fires may be related to nuclear-power-related concerns (e.g., a fire comes close to a nuclear fuel storage facility). Negotiation and agreements may involve cars, engines, racing, fighting, sports in general, social media, travel agencies or regulations, schools, public transport, and so on — the negotiations will probably be tense, and we may hear about disagreements, or conflicts. If an agreement is reached, it will likely be biased and one-sided (so it may not last or it may elicit anger).

USA: Jul 6 — Minor concerns about banks, finance institutions, earnings, or expenditures. This may involve delays, slow progress, obstacles created by leadership, etc. 

USA: Jul 6-11 (esp. Jul 7 and 11) — Possible concerns involving immigration, laws, judges, lawyers, international travel, international shipments, tariffs, foreign relations, colleges, professors, etc. There may be disagreements and heated arguments about the right approach, laws, rights, legal disputes, and/or some moral or religious issues. It may be that one of the country’s international partners questions the legality of some agreement or some decision that affects international travel/transportation or the legal status of some entity. 

JUL 07, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (60%). 

USA: Jul 7-8 — Increased focus on the agreements, negotiations, partnerships, deals, etc. At this time, favorable agreements may be struck, or, prior agreements /partnership decisions may be shown as profitable (esp. related to communication, transportation, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc.).

USA: Jul 7-9 — Increased focus on the earnings, profits, and expenses of the businesses related to IT, telecoms, power generation, electronic gadgets, aerospace, high tech, etc. The news will probably be positive (e.g., increased profits, given a green light to proceed with some project, improved growth, etc.).

China: Jul 7 — Possibly, positive news about investments, tariffs, loans, rates, taxes, etc. (e.g., increased profits, favorable agreement terms, or smooth negotiations by some leader).

JUL 08, 2019 (WED): Strong influence; market may go up (60%). Possibly, increased focus on gold prices due to some monetary policy decision from the US or due to some news from the US related to retail sales, communication or transportation businesses.

JUL 09, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (60%). 

Jul 9-10 — Increased news about topics related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, oil, gas, navy, pollution, movies, religion, drugs, etc.

JUL 10, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

Jul 11-12 (Sat-Sun) — We may hear about a reversal in the decision or the direction in negotiations related to retail sales, communication, transportation, or education domains. If there is a pending negotiation or a blocked project (e.g., stores awaiting for the permission to open, some travel route awaiting to be reopened, etc.) — it may be resolved on 7/11-7/12 and the previous decision may be overturned. 

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

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 China: Jul 20-25 (esp. 21-23), 2020 — Stressful news related to negotiations, agreements, sales, communication/transportation, as well as  oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, healthcare, beverages, navy, pollution, lies, deception, religion, etc. The country may perceive itself as being on the receiving end of some angry response, attack, or being rushed into entering into some [risky financial] agreement.

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 China: Jul 27-28 — Possibly, some important public announcement or an event that affects large groups of people and is related to the country’s goals and ambitions (esp. in the area of finance and banking). This will probably involve the goals of increasing profits, better managing financial investments, regulating risky financial activities, offering financial help, etc.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
