February 11 – 15, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

Global: Jan, June and Sep of 2018 —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies.

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Increased probability of news about accidents (esp. related to aerospace, electric cars, and engines), fires (esp. electric or due to storms/tornados), sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. We may also hear about new weapons, campaigns, or leaders. 

USA/Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Early February 2019 will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

———————

FEB 11, 2018 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%). 

Feb 11-14, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents (esp. related to aerospace, electric cars, and engines), fires (esp. electric or due to storms/tornados), sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric cars’ or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. Alternatively, we may hear about a new invention related to the areas above (e.g., aerospace or electric cars) or a new high tech project. There may also be news about sudden military strikes or fast unexpected developments (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]). Also, there may be news about sudden changes in military/sports leaders, military/sports leaders doing something unusual, military staff receiving some new advanced or unusual weapons, or about issues of LGBT in the army/sports. The news may be positive (like some new project is approved, staff have more rights/freedoms to express themselves, projects are moving along faster than expected, etc.).

USA: Minor positive news about the workforce, healthcare, government contracts, and government-supported services (e.g., agreements are moving forward, negotiations proceed well, or funds are promised).

FEB 12, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%). 

USA: Feb 12-13 — Minor positive news about international negotiations, foreign relationships, immigration, long distance travel/shipments, etc. (e.g., agreements are moving forward, negotiations proceed well, sales and transportation of goods or people over borders proceeds unimpeded).

FEB 13, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Minor issues with sales or communications/transportation businesses — there may be minor obstacles or problems related to miscommunication and poor organization. For ex., some agreement or sale is jeopardized by emotional reactions or a decision is made based emotion/belief rather than logic (e.g., there may be a protest against a communication/transportation business because of religious/spiritual views or some lie/confusion). There may also be minor confusion or news about problems/poor sales /transportation issues related to businesses that deal with pharmaceuticals, religion, water, oil, drugs, chemicals, poisons, etc.

FEB 14, 2019 (TH): Weak-Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Possibly, minor negative news elated to pharmaceuticals, religion, water, oil, drugs, chemicals, poisons, etc. For ex., sales are down, there are not enough vehicles to transport related products or transportation is disrupted, transportation services suffer because of the decreased sales, etc. 

FEB 15, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). We may also hear about sudden military attacks as well as new campaigns, weapons, or leaders. If so, this may be a beginning of a project that will last about 2 yrs.

USA: Increased news about gold and silver (esp. gold); the price may go up slightly.

Feb 16-18 (weekend and Mon [holiday in the US; markets closed]) — while these will be days when the market is closed, they may bring important news and developments. In particular, there will be concerns about the lack of funds, cash availability, decreased earnings, etc. On the 18th, there may also be increased news about oil, pharmaceuticals, religion, water, music, movies/video, drugs, chemicals, poisons, etc. There may be confusion or concerns about sales, agreements, or transportation of the above products/services. There may also be increased news about a famous actor or musician (perhaps winning an award or being otherwise recognized for their talent, or, gaining attention for some addiction/deceptive behavior).

———————

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

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

February 04 – 08, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

Global: Jan, June and Sep of 2018 —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies.

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Overall, not the most stressful week of the year. However, there may be increased focus on military and weapons (as well as fires, explosions, sports, racing, and accidents) around Feb 7-8. We may hear about new leaders (esp. male or military), weapons, or initiatives, or, about attacks, protests, and accidents. The leaders or initiatives may be unpopular or protested by some entities. 

USA/Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Early February 2019 will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

———————

FEB 04, 2018 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). Likely, a greater than usual market move (esp. in the afternoon) regardless of the direction. Increased focus on and likely positive news about IT, telecoms, electric vehicles, electronics, high tech, gadgets, power generation/electricity, and aerospace. We may hear about new projects or leaders. 

USA: Feb 4-5 — Increased news about the military, weapons, sports, fires, accidents, and/or explosions. We may hear about negotiations and sales contracts (e.g., contracts involving airplanes, flying machinery/devices, or communication devices), windy conditions that fuel fires, or, explosions/fires/accidents that involve flying or fast moving objects (e.g., airplanes or cars). Negotiations and contracts with international partners may involve military/weapons, be conducted in an aggressive manner, or involve some risky moves (e.g., start of a project that hasn’t been fully thought through in terms of how to end it/bring to conclusion). There may also be increased reports of problems for transportation/communications companies (e.g., some product overheats, sales are down, new project fails, new product angers users, some social platform implements a new policy that upsets users, etc.).

China: Feb 4-5 — Increased focus on partnerships and international negotiations/agreements. There may be conflicts or pull/push negotiations where China may feel pressured or manipulated (or, may itself use manipulative or aggressive methods). The negotiations may be tense and push the country into making some fast/risky decisions, or, the country will resort to using some aggressive moves or make threats.

FEB 05, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). 

USA: Feb 5-6 — We may hear about earnings/profits that are less than expected, or, about excessive expenses that didn’t pay off. The areas most affected could be farming, real estate, food production, and government contracts for various services. This could be because some new project fell short of expectations, because the initiative wasn’t supported by the [international] partners, or because some partnership/agreement fell through. There may be some conflict between domestic projects or projects supported by the government, and projects where the country has to rely on partners or engage in joint international projects/trade. This conflict may negatively affect the earnings.

FEB 06, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

FEB 07, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%). 

USA: Feb 7-8 — Increased news about international trade and profits as well as laws, immigration, and long distance travel/shipments. There may be concerns about over-expansion or insufficient international expansion. There may also be concerns about governmental regulation affecting profits from international trade, and/or excessive expenses associated with international projects (e.g., involving foreign  partners or shipping products overseas). The issues may be along the lines that new projects require excessive initial investments, or, that the progress cannot be made until some legal or immigration-related issue is resolved.

USA: Feb 7-8 — Increased news about gold and silver and/or some policy or agreement related to payments, shipments, communication, or on-line sales. We may hear about increased sales volume (esp. on-line), initiatives that facilitate on-line sales and communication (e.g., make it easier to transfer payments, share information, or expedite shipments), or contracts among communications/transportation companies.

FEB 08, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Increased probability of an important announcement about military activities, weapons, or athletes. There may be increased tensions on the level of governments, or, the news may be about fires, explosions, accidents, earthquakes, etc. Also, increased news about chemicals, drugs, and pharmaceuticals — there may be an announcement about a successful new treatment or drug (esp. related to addictive substances).

———————

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

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

January 28 – February 01, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Beneficial time for reaching agreements in international negotiations, resolving issues regarding immigration, and expanding international influence (e.g., into international markets, shipping products overseas, moving bases to other countries, etc.). Profits from international markets may increase (esp. from the weapons sales or some military expansion, or expansion involving sports or racing) or expansion into other markets may proceed smoother than usual. Popularity of some athletes/racers or a type of sports (esp. involving high risk or violence, like fighting or racing) previously known only domestically may increase internationally and/or associated athletes may receive greater than usual payments.

Global: The entire month of Jan 2018 (also applies to June and Sep of 2018) —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies. Important Jan 2018 dates: Jan 10-16 may see more tensions related to the topics above and/or extreme weather patterns; around Jan 21st some legal issue may be resolved or an international agreement reached (large market move likely on the 21st, probably up).

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

USA: Oct 22 – Nov 30 (esp. Nov 6-16) — Increased focus on international relations, long distance transportation, higher education, immigration, legal negotiations, laws, judges, lawyers, etc. We may hear about significant changes, limitations, controls, reduction, losses, conservative attitudes, or restructuring in these areas. The changes will likely occur on the level of government and large corporations. There may be concerns about the legal status of the changes or that the changes may affect some laws negatively. The source of changes will probably be some new goals and vision for the country or possibly new leadership. The focus will be on the country’s needs even if those are at odds with existing partnership arrangements and agreements. The partners may not appreciate the changes and see the US as too inflexible, conservative, or rigid. Update 11.11.18: Fitting with the prediction above, on 11-08-18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and fractured 3 ribs. Putting together the ongoing stressful opposition transit from Saturn (loss, delay, restructuring, constraints, authority figure, old age, poor health, bones/teeth, calcification, lack of mobility, death, etc.) to US Jupiter (law, judges, legal system, immigration, foreign affairs, etc.) and the upcoming tense transits to the judge’s natal chart, I think it is very likely that she will soon leave the position. I haven’t analyzed Ginsburg’s chart in depth, but I see tense transits coming up for her around Nov 25-27, 2018 — at that time, she may experience difficulties with breathing, communicating, or moving around, and/or will have to be extra disciplined with herself (physical therapy?) when performing these functions. She may also simply feel extra tired. Additionally, she is entering a period of a few months when she will experience a slow and transformational opposition/square form transiting Pluto to her Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Around February 1-2, 2010, Pluto transit will be very tight and Mars will additionally be passing exactly over her Uranus and squaring her Pluto. This will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). Previously, in June 2012, she similarly fractured two ribs  when transiting Saturn opposed her Uranus and squared her Pluto. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

China: Continued stressful influence from last week — For ex., problems with navy/oil put pressure on its leaders, earthquakes occur and trigger mudslides or flooding, some old structures collapse, old/established approaches are challenged [esp. related to steel, government, mining, healthcare, and partnerships], etc.). This will continue for few weeks; the influence will increase around Dec 23-24, 2018; Jan 1-12, 2019; and Jan 19-26, 2019. Mon, Jan 21, 2019 looks like an important day when some law may take effect; it may be related to trade/sales/communications/transportation and/or navy/oil/chemicals/minerals/steel. There may be a stand-off or a stale-mate situation where some old approach must be broken or losses must be endured before the situation can improve.

China: Jan 2018 may be a tense month with increased focus on investments, debt, loans, rates, taxes, tariffs, insurance, banks, and financial sphere in general. There may be concerns about the market stability, restrictions, losses, delays, tough negotiations, lack of agreement, etc. We may hear about a cautious approach, slow down or restructuring in response to hidden pressures, projects ending, or the desire to protect assets/earnings. On Jan 21-25, there may be important public announcements about new projects, aggressive or risky moves (related to banks/rates/financial institutions), or military activities (to protect some assets or money). These may be aimed at achieving new goals for the country, increasing earnings, improving financial structures, and ensuring financial stability. 

———————

JAN 28, 2018 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (65-70%). 

Jan 28-30 — Busy news days with focus on IT, telecoms, electricity, high tech, aerospace, electronics, gadgets, social media platforms, communication/transportation (esp. electric cars or airplanes), and retail sales. We may hear about new products, new leadership, digital innovation, changes in connectivity (e.g., phone coverage is expanded, airports overwhelmed due to too many flights), expanded information gathering projects (e.g., via a social platform), increased sales volume or increased number of flights/shipments, and/or increased negotiations (esp. among companies related to the areas above).

USA: Jan 28-29 — Increased probability of positive news (e.g., increased investments or sales) related to the following: IT, telecoms, electricity, high tech, aerospace, electronics, gadgets, social media platforms, communication/transportation, as well as international partnership agreements (esp. related to sales, communication/transportation, and information gathering/sharing).

China: Increased probability of positive news related to leadership, clarifications about the investment plans, rates/loans (e.g., some agreement is reached, expected performance numbers are reported, new projects move forwards smoothly, sales proceed as expected, new [esp. male and/or young] leaders perform well, etc.

China: All of Jan 2019 and continuing into mid-Feb, esp. Jan 28-30 — Increased focus on oil, gas, navy, water (e.g., floods or snowstorms), chemicals, pollution, rugs, lies, etc. There may be concerns about earthquakes, vague restrictions, regulations related to navy/chemicals,/oil/steel/etc., and/or tensions related to navy, water, old buildings, and structures that may be unstable, built on water [reclaimed land], sandy soil (due to liquefaction-induced damage?), or built in secret/without proper preparation/using inappropriate materials (incl. toxic chemicals). In particular, there may be some problems with water/oil/chemicals/etc. related to earthquakes, landslides, or shortages/blockages (e.g., an oil pipe is blocked, a landslide disrupts water flow, mine operations pollute water, water damage undermines stability of a large old building [such as a  dam, or, something built on sandy soil], etc.).

JAN 29, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (65%). 

JAN 30, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).

All of Jan 2019, but especially today — Increased news about oil, gas, navy, water (e.g., floods or snowstorms), chemicals, pollution, rugs, lies, etc. There may be floods, snowstorms, or changes in international agreements about oil/gas shipments (the shipments or international agreements may go through after the initial tensions and legal stumbling blocks are removed). Additionally or alternatively, on Jan 30-31, prices for international shipments/travel tickets may go up.

JAN 31, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). 

Jan 31 – Feb 3 — Increased probability of earthquakes, landslides, violent attacks, accidents involving fire/explosions/engines, anti-government protests, shakeups in leadership (esp. among government officials, esp. military leaders, and large corporate leaders), and disasters in general. The nature of accidents may be an explosion or fire that undermines structural integrity of a building, explosions at a mine, military attacks, nuclear power plant accidents, recycling facility accidents, accidents/fires under ground, hidden engine failures, fast moving object (e.g., a racing car) suddenly coming to an abrupt stop, etc. Also, there may be increased news about military and weapons —  there may be concerns about them being too powerful and deadly, or, exploding out of control.

China: Jan 31 – Feb 3 — Increased focus on international trade, shipments, laws, international organizations, navy, oil/gas, recycling, chemicals, drugs, healthcare, pollution, and water. There may be tensions, hard deals, and stand-offs involving military, aggressive/risky moves or posturing, or accidents/explosions/fires. The entire year, China will experience a major transformation in the areas above. The issues (e.g., related to navy) will flare up occasionally throughout the year — this week, there is a greater than usual probability of tensions/problems related to the ongoing transformation.

FEB 01, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%).  

Feb 1-2 — Increased focus on IT, telecoms, electricity, high tech, aerospace, electronics, gadgets, social media platforms, Forex and e-currencies. We may hear about new international deals, [likely positive] developments related to international payment methods (e.g., payments can be sent internationally more easily), innovations in the areas above that aim at gaining popularity in international markets (e.g., a new phone is designed to appeal to buyers from certain countries), and increased profits from the products related to the areas above (again, likely from the international sales). 

———————

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

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

January 21-25, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: The entire month of Jan 2018 (also applies to June and Sep of 2018) —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies. Important Jan 2018 dates: Jan 10-16 may see more tensions related to the topics above and/or extreme weather patterns; around Jan 21st some legal issue may be resolved or an international agreement reached (large market move likely on the 21st, probably up).

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

USA: Jan 1 – 25 — Increased focus on banks and financial institutions as well as laws, judges, immigration, foreign relations, long distance travel/transportation, etc. There may be news about limitations, controls, cautious conservative approach, losses, restructuring, and re-organization. Projects may proceed extra slowly or get stuck in the planning stage. There may also be news about changes in leadership (both in US and globally), esp. on Jan 16 and 21 (e.g., leaders may die, step down, be replaced, succumb to external pressure [vote of no confidence, public pressure], or leave because of heavy responsibilities or conflicts with governmental officials). This influence may make investors more cautious. Lastly, there may be increased focus on steel, metals, minerals, and mining in relation to foreign partners, laws, agreements, and investments — there could be problems or delays in reaching agreements due to restrictions, drop in value of related products, or some bureaucratic reasons (e.g., multiple governmental agencies need to sign off on something).   

USA: Oct 22 – Nov 30 (esp. Nov 6-16) — Increased focus on international relations, long distance transportation, higher education, immigration, legal negotiations, laws, judges, lawyers, etc. We may hear about significant changes, limitations, controls, reduction, losses, conservative attitudes, or restructuring in these areas. The changes will likely occur on the level of government and large corporations. There may be concerns about the legal status of the changes or that the changes may affect some laws negatively. The source of changes will probably be some new goals and vision for the country or possibly new leadership. The focus will be on the country’s needs even if those are at odds with existing partnership arrangements and agreements. The partners may not appreciate the changes and see the US as too inflexible, conservative, or rigid. Update 11.11.18: Fitting with the prediction above, on 11-08-18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and fractured 3 ribs. Putting together the ongoing stressful opposition transit from Saturn (loss, delay, restructuring, constraints, authority figure, old age, poor health, bones/teeth, calcification, lack of mobility, death, etc.) to US Jupiter (law, judges, legal system, immigration, foreign affairs, etc.) and the upcoming tense transits to the judge’s natal chart, I think it is very likely that she will soon leave the position. I haven’t analyzed Ginsburg’s chart in depth, but I see tense transits coming up for her around Nov 25-27, 2018 — at that time, she may experience difficulties with breathing, communicating, or moving around, and/or will have to be extra disciplined with herself (physical therapy?) when performing these functions. She may also simply feel extra tired. Additionally, she is entering a period of a few months when she will experience a slow and transformational opposition/square form transiting Pluto to her Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Around February 1-2, 2010, Pluto transit will be very tight and Mars will additionally be passing exactly over her Uranus and squaring her Pluto. This will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). Previously, in June 2012, she similarly fractured two ribs  when transiting Saturn opposed her Uranus and squared her Pluto. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

China: Continued stressful influence from last week — For ex., problems with navy/oil put pressure on its leaders, earthquakes occur and trigger mudslides or flooding, some old structures collapse, old/established approaches are challenged [esp. related to steel, government, mining, healthcare, and partnerships], etc.). This will continue for few weeks; the influence will increase around Dec 23-24, 2018; Jan 1-12, 2019; and Jan 19-26, 2019. Mon, Jan 21, 2019 looks like an important day when some law may take effect; it may be related to trade/sales/communications/transportation and/or navy/oil/chemicals/minerals/steel. There may be a stand-off or a stale-mate situation where some old approach must be broken or losses must be endured before the situation can improve.

China: Jan 2018 may be a tense month with increased focus on investments, debt, loans, rates, taxes, tariffs, insurance, banks, and financial sphere in general. There may be concerns about the market stability, restrictions, losses, delays, tough negotiations, lack of agreement, etc. We may hear about a cautious approach, slow down or restructuring in response to hidden pressures, projects ending, or the desire to protect assets/earnings. On Jan 21-25, there may be important public announcements about new projects, aggressive or risky moves (related to banks/rates/financial institutions), or military activities (to protect some assets or money). These may be aimed at achieving new goals for the country, increasing earnings, improving financial structures, and ensuring financial stability. 

———————

JAN 21, 2018 (MON): US markets closed. Globally, Strong influence; market may possibly go up (70-75%). 

Mon Jan 21 may bring very positive hopeful news and there may be a major market move at that time (probably UP, but the move will be significant regardless of the direction). The The UP move could be due to some international agreement reached or some legal or immigration-related issue resolved. Additionally, even though the themes of oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, wet weather, religion, etc. will be strong all week (see weekly preview above), on Jan 21, these issues will be especially important. There may be significant news about the price of oil or some drug, likely due to some international agreement, legal decision, or an event related to shipment/transportation over a long distance. This may be a situation where oil or drug cannot be shipped internationally due to laws or some legal decision, or, it may be that some international conflict is peacefully resolved and the shipment/transport is allowed to go through. There may also be increased news about the weather or some natural phenomena involving too much water (e.g., rains, snowstorm, floods), oil (spill? transport ship experiencing difficulties?), or gas (some build up that may explode). There may also be increased news about religion and religious organizations/figures, esp. their income and possibly misplaced or misused funds (e.g., an entity spends donated money on lavish trips while preaching about humility). With the Super Blood Moon total lunar eclipse taking place on 1/21-22, these influences will persist in the background for the next 6 months or so. Thus, over the next 6mo, there may be increased news about international relations/agreements/shipments/trade, laws/judges, immigration, religious or moral values, and oil/drugs/chemicals/music/movies/healthcare/navy/water-related weather events, etc.

Jan 21 — Increased likelihood of an important public announcement about a product, company, project, or a leader from the communication/transportation industry. The announcement may not be well received by the public or the individual’s popularity may suffer. The nature of the announcement may be losses, delays with shipment, restricted communication or lack of it altogether, lack of agreement, increased control over communication or transportation, limited options or features (e.g., fewer electronic gadgets included in a car or a restricted range/battery life), etc.

Jan 21-23 — Increased probability of disruptive news or events related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric cars, electrons, high tech, electricity, etc. This may be related to the announcement above, or, be an independent event, such as intermitted power losses or disruptions at the airports (esp. due to thunderstorms, electronic equipment malfunctioning, or flying debris/drones/birds), accidents with airplanes/rockets/drones/electric cars, unexpected military attacks that use planes/rockets/drones, unexpected beginning/end of some governmental contract related to the areas above, social media network outages, etc.

Jan 21-22 — Positive news about international agreements, trade, travel, immigration,  judges, and legal acts (e.g., some legal decisions or agreements are passed relatively easily, international travel is made easier, or a profitable deal is reached among international partners). Also, there may be increased news about sugar, sweets, diabetes, fashion, luxury items, and/or jewelry (e.g., higher prices or profits, increased desirability, international expansion of some clothing line or a clothing item [esp. related to religion], large international shipment of precious stones, increased popularity of some pastry, etc.). 

Jan 18-26 (esp. 18-23) — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents (in general and especially at the mines), explosions, fires, anti-governmental protests, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. At this time, there may also be increased fluctuations of the related commodities and products, incl. metals (esp. steel), chemicals (esp. those used to burn or explode things), oil, and minerals.

USA: Jan 16-21 — Legal battles and arguments among leaders (from government and large corporations). Increased focus on foreign relations, immigration, laws, judges, long distance shipments, etc. There may be impatience/anger over these issues or call for action to make something happen or to move faster. There may be conflict between entities that are impatient and eager to take action and conservative/rigid entities (esp. governmental or from large corporations) that will be moving too slowly, creating obstacles, or imposing controls (to avoid rash decisions). The legal approval/agreement has a chance of being reached around Jan 16-18. The resulting actions will be slow, as even approved new projects or a re-start of suspended activities may be subjects to delays, restrictions, regulations, lack of governmental support, etc. This tension over inability to proceed or take action will last through about Jan 20 (Sun). On Jan 21 (Mon), there may be greater than usual market moves (probably up on some optimistic news related to legal agreements, international trade, foreign relations, immigration, long distance travel/shipments, etc.). Even though US markets are closed on Jan 21, it looks to be an important day when some legal issues, international relations/agreements, or issues related to immigration will come into focus and demand an active response or a new approach; at the same time, the action will be blocked by some conservative or rigid forces. These same issues will continue to remain more important than usual over the next 6mo because relevant planetary transits occur at the time of the lunar eclipse. 

USA: Jan 21-22 (and the next 6mo as a background influence) — Increased focus on banks, financial system, and earnings in connection with hidden problems, deception, rates, insurance, taxes, old outlived financial strategies, and debt. For ex., concerns about earnings vs. debt, worries unpaid loans due to some deception, or, concerns about retaining the value of bank assets due to some old hidden problems that haven’t been addressed (e.g., theft of funds, missing money, hidden profits to avoid taxation, unrecognized debt, etc.). Also, increased probability of accidents or tense situations that involve communication/transportation (esp. communication by someone who is a powerful leader and/or a manipulative person who uses information to assert power), hacking/spying, healthcare, religion, navy, water, chemicals, poisons, recycling, and power generation (esp. nuclear). The issues may center around withheld, erroneous, leaked or hacked info being used to exert power over governmental or corporate leaders, or, to gain money. An important official may be blackmailed, threatened, or even killed (possibly over financial gain, or, an official will be from the financial industry).

USA: Jan 21-22 (and the next 6mo as a background influence) — Increased probability of an accident, fire, or an attack on a governmental or corporate leader, antigovernment protests (that may involve guns or fires, etc.), and fires or explosions that involve governmental, old, or important/large/established corporate buildings (esp. corporate headquarters, mines, tunnels, bridges, and facilities underground or in the mountains). The events will likely involve some domestic issue, banks, earnings, and food/safety/homeland security. Some old/conservative/rigid politician or a corporate leader (esp. related to finance) may be pressured to act, step down, or be attacked [possibly at home or by locals/fellow countrymen]. There may also be increased (and likely negative) news about the real estate and/or banks’ assets. Lastly, there may be increased news about steel, metals, coal, and minerals — either about an accident at a mine or a processing plant, or, about an action to restructure some related businesses/project (to remove controls, reduce losses, replace leadership, etc.).

JAN 22, 2019 (TUE): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down prediction is mainly due to the tense transits to the US chart; globally, the markets may go up.

JAN 23, 2019 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%). 

JAN 24, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%). 

Jan 24-25 — Increased probability of international negotiations reaching an agreement, beginning of a new important international project (esp. related to transportation, travel, military, weapons, higher education, law, and religion), as well as of good progress made in the areas related to immigration and international trade/travel. There may also be positive news related to international sports events, laws/judges, and some cultural exchange projects. Weather-wise, this may be a time of excessive heat [in the areas of the globe where there is currently summer/warm weather], or, we may hear about increased fires that involve munition, old or governmental buildings, or large transportation vehicles (e.g., a train or a large ship). 

China: Jan 24-26 (esp. the 25th), 2019 — Increased probability of an important announcement about banks, savings, earnings, assets, or real estate. It may involve an aggressive or risky decision and may cause upset or concerns about stability/profits. Also, there may be increased concerns about earthquakes, vague restrictions, regulations related to navy/chemicals,/oil/steel/etc., and/or tensions related to navy, water, old buildings, and structures that may be unstable, built on water [reclaimed land], sandy soil (due to liquefaction-induced damage?), or built in secret/without proper preparation/using inappropriate materials (incl. toxic chemicals).

JAN 25, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%).  

———————

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

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

January 14-18, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: The entire month of Jan 2018 (also applies to June and Sep of 2018) —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies. Important Jan 2018 dates: Jan 10-16 may see more tensions related to the topics above and/or extreme weather patterns; around Jan 21st some legal issue may be resolved or an international agreement reached (large market move likely on the 21st, probably up).

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

USA: Jan 1 – 25 — Increased focus on banks and financial institutions as well as laws, judges, immigration, foreign relations, long distance travel/transportation, etc. There may be news about limitations, controls, cautious conservative approach, losses, restructuring, and re-organization. Projects may proceed extra slowly or get stuck in the planning stage. There may also be news about changes in leadership (both in US and globally), esp. on Jan 16 and 21 (e.g., leaders may die, step down, be replaced, succumb to external pressure [vote of no confidence, public pressure], or leave because of heavy responsibilities or conflicts with governmental officials). This influence may make investors more cautious. Lastly, there may be increased focus on steel, metals, minerals, and mining in relation to foreign partners, laws, agreements, and investments — there could be problems or delays in reaching agreements due to restrictions, drop in value of related products, or some bureaucratic reasons (e.g., multiple governmental agencies need to sign off on something).   

USA: Oct 22 – Nov 30 (esp. Nov 6-16) — Increased focus on international relations, long distance transportation, higher education, immigration, legal negotiations, laws, judges, lawyers, etc. We may hear about significant changes, limitations, controls, reduction, losses, conservative attitudes, or restructuring in these areas. The changes will likely occur on the level of government and large corporations. There may be concerns about the legal status of the changes or that the changes may affect some laws negatively. The source of changes will probably be some new goals and vision for the country or possibly new leadership. The focus will be on the country’s needs even if those are at odds with existing partnership arrangements and agreements. The partners may not appreciate the changes and see the US as too inflexible, conservative, or rigid. Update 11.11.18: Fitting with the prediction above, on 11-08-18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and fractured 3 ribs. Putting together the ongoing stressful opposition transit from Saturn (loss, delay, restructuring, constraints, authority figure, old age, poor health, bones/teeth, calcification, lack of mobility, death, etc.) to US Jupiter (law, judges, legal system, immigration, foreign affairs, etc.) and the upcoming tense transits to the judge’s natal chart, I think it is very likely that she will soon leave the position. I haven’t analyzed Ginsburg’s chart in depth, but I see tense transits coming up for her around Nov 25-27, 2018 — at that time, she may experience difficulties with breathing, communicating, or moving around, and/or will have to be extra disciplined with herself (physical therapy?) when performing these functions. She may also simply feel extra tired. Additionally, she is entering a period of a few months when she will experience a slow and transformational opposition/square form transiting Pluto to her Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Around February 1-2, 2010, Pluto transit will be very tight and Mars will additionally be passing exactly over her Uranus and squaring her Pluto. This will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). Previously, in June 2012, she similarly fractured two ribs  when transiting Saturn opposed her Uranus and squared her Pluto. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

China: Continued stressful influence from last week — For ex., problems with navy/oil put pressure on its leaders, earthquakes occur and trigger mudslides or flooding, some old structures collapse, old/established approaches are challenged [esp. related to steel, government, mining, healthcare, and partnerships], etc.). This will continue for few weeks; the influence will increase around Dec 23-24, 2018; Jan 1-12, 2019; and Jan 19-26, 2019. Mon, Jan 21, 2019 looks like an important day when some law may take effect; it may be related to trade/sales/communications/transportation and/or navy/oil/chemicals/minerals/steel. There may be a stand-off or a stale-mate situation where some old approach must be broken or losses must be endured before the situation can improve.

China: Jan 2018 may be a tense month with increased focus on investments, debt, loans, rates, taxes, tariffs, insurance, banks, and financial sphere in general. There may be concerns about the market stability, restrictions, losses, delays, tough negotiations, lack of agreement, etc. We may hear about a cautious approach, slow down or restructuring in response to hidden pressures, projects ending, or the desire to protect assets/earnings. On Jan 21-25, there may be important public announcements about new projects, aggressive or risky moves (related to banks/rates/financial institutions), or military activities (to protect some assets or money). These may be aimed at achieving new goals for the country, increasing earnings, improving financial structures, and ensuring financial stability. 

———————

JAN 14, 2018 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). 

USA: Jan 14-15 — Increased focus on businesses and products related to IT, aerospace, electricity, power generation, high tech, electronics, telecoms, social media, etc. There may be minor concerns about earnings, contracts, or agreements, esp. those involving international partners. This may be related to international relations, imports/exports, contracts with international partners, international sales, and trying to balance the need for profits/support at home vs. keeping international partners happy or profiting from international sales. Domestic sales/profits may be up but it may somehow be at odds with the goals of pursuing partnership agreements, or, there may be a surprising change in the agreements/contracts. The minor concerns will likely be swiftly addressed through arrangements of new opportunities (probably domestically).

USA: Disagreements among governmental officials and/or leaders of large corporations, increased communications about corporate or governmental restructuring, disagreements about leadership and questioning the status of leaders. Also, increased focus on financial institutions and banks — some questions related to finances, esp. agreements and sales, may be a source of upset for the leaders or about the leaders. There may be disagreements between representatives of the financial institutions and governmental officials.

JAN 15, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). 

Jan 15-16 — A greater than usual likelihood of an important announcement about a leader or an important person (probably a male, an older person, a governmental official, and/or a corporate leader). This entity may gather unwelcome attention or loose popularity, possibly due to being seen as overly conservative, rigid, cold/heartless, materialistic, etc. There may be accusations of not being warm and caring enough, not protecting the homeland, and not treating women/children well. Additionally or alternatively, the news may be about an ending of an important project (esp. related to government initiatives or a large established business), removal of an important official, or even a death of an important public figure. 

Jan 15-18 — Increased focus on weapons (as well as materials they are made of such as steel or some explosives; these may go up in value), sports, military, racing, fires, explosions, and risky/fast activities. There may be positive news, such as about increased profits, increased demand, new weapon designs, new profitable contracts (esp. international), increased earnings from sports/weapons, as well as increased news about female athletes or women in the military (e.g., some new laws, increased earnings, increased opportunities, etc.). Lastly, there may be increased news about some military tensions temporarily subsiding because the issues are addressed legally, peacefully, and/or through successful international efforts.

JAN 16, 2019 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). 

USA: Jan 16-21 — legal battles and arguments among leaders (from government and large corporations). Increased focus on foreign relations, immigration, laws, judges, long distance shipments, etc. There may be impatience/anger over these issues or call for action to make something happen or to move faster. There may be conflict between entities that are impatient and eager to take action and conservative/rigid entities (esp. governmental or from large corporations) that will be moving too slowly, creating obstacles, or imposing controls (to avoid rash decisions). The legal approval/agreement has a chance of being reached around Jan 16-18. The resulting actions will be slow, as even approved new projects or a re-start of suspended activities may be subjects to delays, restrictions, regulations, lack of governmental support, etc. This tension over inability to proceed or take action will last through about Jan 20 (Sun). On Jan 21 (Mon), there may be greater than usual market moves (probably up on some optimistic news related to legal agreements, international trade, foreign relations, immigration, long distance travel/shipments, etc.).

JAN 17, 2019 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). 

Jan 17-18 — Increased probability of conflicts among governmental and corporate leaders over issues related to IT, aerospace, electricity, power generation, high tech, electronics, telecoms, social media, etc., or, issues related to military, sports, and any new initiatives seen as risky or too aggressive. These conflicts may arise or end very suddenly (e.g., some leader flip flops or suddenly changes sides on some related issue [such as a use of technology or a risky military move]). Also, there may be conflicts between older conservative and/or governmental officials and entities representing new  techie/IT companies (incl. social media), projects, and leaders of those companies. An older conservative entity may be upset that the other side is irresponsible, unstable, extravagant, doesn’t play by the rules. Or, one of the partners in some venture (probably related to government) may quit or cancel the project  because they don’t understand some overly technical concept or can’t trust that some new high tech approach works reliably (e.g., some high tech weapon or space device). Also, increased risk of surprising/unexpected events related to the areas above, such as a head of an IT or social media company stepping down/being replaced, major power outages (possibly due to cold weather or earthquakes/landslides), unexpected airports delays, problems with airplanes/batteries/aerospace projects, outages of social media services, etc.

JAN 18, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).  Tense communications/negotiations at the level of governments and/or large corporations. These conversations will likely involve power plays, hidden/secret manipulations, and “my way or the highway” ultimatums. 

Jan 18-22, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents (in general and especially at the mines), explosions, fires, anti-governmental protests, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. At this time, there may also be increased fluctuations of the related commodities and products, incl. metals (esp. steel), chemicals (esp. those used to burn or explode things), oil, and minerals.

The weekend of jan 19-20 may be tense with bad weather, tough negotiations, protests, accidents, etc.; however, Mon Jan 21 may bring very positive hopeful news and there may be a major market move at that time (probably UP, but the move will be significant regardless of the direction). The The UP move could be due to some international agreement reached or some legal or immigration-related issue resolved. Additionally, even though the themes of oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, wet weather, religion, etc. will be strong all week (see weekly preview above), on Jan 21, these issues will be especially important. There may be significant news about the price of oil or some drug, likely due to some international agreement, legal decision, or an event related to shipment/transportation over a long distance. This may be a situation where oil or drug cannot be shipped internationally due to laws or some legal decision, or, it may be that some international conflict is peacefully resolved and the shipment/transport is allowed to go through. There may also be increased news about the weather or some natural phenomena involving too much water (e.g., rains, snowstorm, floods), oil (spill? transport ship experiencing difficulties?), or gas (some build up that may explode). There may also be increased news about religion and religious organizations/figures, esp. their income and possibly misplaced or misused funds (e.g., an entity spends donated money on lavish trips while preaching about humility).

 

———————

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

China: Jan 24-26 (esp. the 25th), 2019 — Increased probability of an important announcement about banks, savings, earnings, assets, or real estate. It may involve an aggressive or risky decision and may cause upset or concerns about stability/profits. Also, there may be increased concerns about earthquakes, vague restrictions, regulations related to navy/chemicals,/oil/steel/etc., and/or tensions related to navy, water, old buildings, and structures that may be unstable, built on water [reclaimed land], sandy soil (due to liquefaction-induced damage?), or built in secret/without proper preparation/using inappropriate materials (incl. toxic chemicals).

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

January 7-11, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. 

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: The entire month of Jan 2018 (also applies to June and Sep of 2018) —  Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods,  snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies. Important Jan 2018 dates: Jan 10-16 may see more tensions related to the topics above and/or extreme weather patterns; around Jan 21st some legal issue may be resolved or an international agreement reached (large market move likely on the 21st, probably up).

Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, 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 shakin’” 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. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

USA: Jan 1 – 25 — Increased focus on banks and financial institutions as well as laws, judges, immigration, foreign relations, long distance travel/transportation, etc. There may be news about limitations, controls, cautious conservative approach, losses, restructuring, and re-organization. Projects may proceed extra slowly or get stuck in the planning stage. There may also be news about changes in leadership (both in US and globally), esp. on Jan 16 and 21 (e.g., leaders may die, step down, be replaced, succumb to external pressure [vote of no confidence, public pressure], or leave because of heavy responsibilities or conflicts with governmental officials). This influence may make investors more cautious. Lastly, there may be increased focus on steel, metals, minerals, and mining in relation to foreign partners, laws, agreements, and investments — there could be problems or delays in reaching agreements due to restrictions, drop in value of related products, or some bureaucratic reasons (e.g., multiple governmental agencies need to sign off on something).   

USA: Oct 22 – Nov 30 (esp. Nov 6-16) — Increased focus on international relations, long distance transportation, higher education, immigration, legal negotiations, laws, judges, lawyers, etc. We may hear about significant changes, limitations, controls, reduction, losses, conservative attitudes, or restructuring in these areas. The changes will likely occur on the level of government and large corporations. There may be concerns about the legal status of the changes or that the changes may affect some laws negatively. The source of changes will probably be some new goals and vision for the country or possibly new leadership. The focus will be on the country’s needs even if those are at odds with existing partnership arrangements and agreements. The partners may not appreciate the changes and see the US as too inflexible, conservative, or rigid. Update 11.11.18: Fitting with the prediction above, on 11-08-18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and fractured 3 ribs. Putting together the ongoing stressful opposition transit from Saturn (loss, delay, restructuring, constraints, authority figure, old age, poor health, bones/teeth, calcification, lack of mobility, death, etc.) to US Jupiter (law, judges, legal system, immigration, foreign affairs, etc.) and the upcoming tense transits to the judge’s natal chart, I think it is very likely that she will soon leave the position. I haven’t analyzed Ginsburg’s chart in depth, but I see tense transits coming up for her around Nov 25-27, 2018 — at that time, she may experience difficulties with breathing, communicating, or moving around, and/or will have to be extra disciplined with herself (physical therapy?) when performing these functions. She may also simply feel extra tired. Additionally, she is entering a period of a few months when she will experience a slow and transformational opposition/square form transiting Pluto to her Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Around February 1-2, 2010, Pluto transit will be very tight and Mars will additionally be passing exactly over her Uranus and squaring her Pluto. This will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). Previously, in June 2012, she similarly fractured two ribs  when transiting Saturn opposed her Uranus and squared her Pluto. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

China: Continued stressful influence from last week — For ex., problems with navy/oil put pressure on its leaders, earthquakes occur and trigger mudslides or flooding, some old structures collapse, old/established approaches are challenged [esp. related to steel, government, mining, healthcare, and partnerships], etc.). This will continue for few weeks; the influence will increase around Dec 23-24, 2018; Jan 1-12, 2019; and Jan 19-26, 2019. Mon, Jan 21, 2019 looks like an important day when some law may take effect; it may be related to trade/sales/communications/transportation and/or navy/oil/chemicals/minerals/steel. There may be a stand-off or a stale-mate situation where some old approach must be broken or losses must be endured before the situation can improve.

China: Jan 2018 may be a tense month with increased focus on investments, debt, loans, rates, taxes, tariffs, insurance, banks, and financial sphere in general. There may be concerns about the market stability, restrictions, losses, delays, tough negotiations, lack of agreement, etc. We may hear about a cautious approach, slow down or restructuring in response to hidden pressures, projects ending, or the desire to protect assets/earnings. On Jan 21-25, there may be important public announcements about new projects, aggressive or risky moves (related to banks/rates/financial institutions), or military activities (to protect some assets or money). These may be aimed at achieving new goals for the country, increasing earnings, improving financial structures, and ensuring financial stability. 

———————

JAN 07, 2018 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). Anger over communications from or agreements reached by governmental entities or large corporations. Agreements or communications may be perceived as too rigid, oppressive, or restrained and lacking forward momentum. Alternatively, there may be anger over the lack of communication or agreements altogether. Additionally, there may be upsets over products or businesses related to communication/transportation (e.g., cars), esp. large scale established well-known manufacturers. 

USA: Jan 7-8 — legal battles and arguments among leaders (from government and large corporations). Increased focus on foreign relations, immigration, laws, judges, long distance shipments, etc. There may be impatience/anger over these issues or call for action to make something happen or to move faster. There may be conflict between entities that are impatient and eager to take action and conservative/rigid entities (esp. governmental or from large corporations) that will be moving too slowly, creating obstacles, or imposing controls (to avoid rash decisions). This conflict will likely see a peak on Jan 8 when either a resolution is reached or the confrontation escalates to a new level. The legal approval/agreement has a greater chance of being reached around Jan 16-18. The resulting actions will be slow, as even approved new projects or a re-start of suspended activities may be subjects to delays, restrictions, regulations, lack of governmental support, etc. This tension over inability to proceed or take action will last through about Jan 20 (Sun). On Jan 21 (Mon), there may be greater than usual market moves (probably up on some optimistic news related to legal agreements, international trade, foreign relations, immigration, long distance travel/shipments, etc.).

JAN 08, 2019 (TUE): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). 

JAN 09, 2019 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (55%). Increased fluctuations of gold/silver prices may occur in the early am.

Jan 9-10 — increased focus on secrets or hidden activities by governments and large corporations as well as on businesses or products related to mining, recycling, power generation (esp. nuclear plants), taxes, insurance, and spying. There may be concerns about the hidden activities of some large governmental entity or large corporations. Additionally, there may be increased news about a removal/death of prominent leaders (esp. males, actors or attention-seeking individuals, or leaders from government or large corporations). There may also be increased news about the private life of governmental leaders or famous people (esp. those involved in some unsavory secret activities but are publicly known to be a conservative/strict person) — they may be exposed due to some privacy breach.

JAN 10, 2019 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). 

JAN 11, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).

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

Global: Jan 20-22, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. At this time, there may also be increased fluctuations of the related commodities and products, incl. metals, chemicals, oil, and minerals.

China: Jan 24-26 (esp. the 25th), 2019 — Increased probability of an important announcement about banks, savings, earnings, assets, or real estate. It may involve an aggressive or risky decision and may cause upset or concerns about stability/profits. Also, there may be increased concerns about earthquakes, vague restrictions, regulations related to navy/chemicals,/oil/steel/etc., and/or tensions related to navy, water, old buildings, and structures that may be unstable, built on water [reclaimed land], sandy soil (due to liquefaction-induced damage?), or built in secret/without proper preparation/using inappropriate materials (incl. toxic chemicals).

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.

December 31, 2018 – January 4, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

NEW: Uploaded a video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post. Happy New Year!😊🍵🌟

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”?😜😂

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: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well. 

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. 

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).

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

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.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Over the summer (May-Sep 2018), Jupiter/Neptune trine in water signs had supported optimistic/hopeful mood and, as expected, there was an overall upward trend in the markets. The trine has been dissipating since September, so that supportive influence is no longer there. At the same time, as we approach and enter 2019, we will slowly begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. 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 from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent attacks, protests and military clashes. “A whole lotta shakin’” will be going on. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering 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.

Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

USA: Oct 22 – Nov 30 (esp. Nov 6-16) — Increased focus on international relations, long distance transportation, higher education, immigration, legal negotiations, laws, judges, lawyers, etc. We may hear about significant changes, limitations, controls, reduction, losses, conservative attitudes, or restructuring in these areas. The changes will likely occur on the level of government and large corporations. There may be concerns about the legal status of the changes or that the changes may affect some laws negatively. The source of changes will probably be some new goals and vision for the country or possibly new leadership. The focus will be on the country’s needs even if those are at odds with existing partnership arrangements and agreements. The partners may not appreciate the changes and see the US as too inflexible, conservative, or rigid. Update 11.11.18: Fitting with the prediction above, on 11-08-18, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell and fractured 3 ribs. Putting together the ongoing stressful opposition transit from Saturn (loss, delay, restructuring, constraints, authority figure, old age, poor health, bones/teeth, calcification, lack of mobility, death, etc.) to US Jupiter (law, judges, legal system, immigration, foreign affairs, etc.) and the upcoming tense transits to the judge’s natal chart, I think it is very likely that she will soon leave the position. I haven’t analyzed Ginsburg’s chart in depth, but I see tense transits coming up for her around Nov 25-27, 2018 — at that time, she may experience difficulties with breathing, communicating, or moving around, and/or will have to be extra disciplined with herself (physical therapy?) when performing these functions. She may also simply feel extra tired. Additionally, she is entering a period of a few months when she will experience a slow and transformational opposition/square form transiting Pluto to her Pluto and Uranus, respectively. Around February 1-2, 2010, Pluto transit will be very tight and Mars will additionally be passing exactly over her Uranus and squaring her Pluto. This will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). Previously, in June 2012, she similarly fractured two ribs  when transiting Saturn opposed her Uranus and squared her Pluto. I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.

China: Continued stressful influence from last week — For ex., problems with navy/oil put pressure on its leaders, earthquakes occur and trigger mudslides or flooding, some old structures collapse, old/established approaches are challenged [esp. related to steel, government, mining, healthcare, and partnerships], etc.). This will continue for few weeks; the influence will increase around Dec 23-24, 2018; Jan 1-12, 2019; and Jan 19-21, 2019. Mon, Jan 21, 2019 looks like an important day when some law may take effect; it may be related to trade/sales/communications/transportation and/or navy/oil/chemicals/minerals/steel. There may be a stand-off or a stale-mate situation where some old approach must be broken or losses must be endured before the situation can improve.

———————

DEC 31, 2018 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). 

USA: Increased probability of mildly positive optimistic news about agreements with international partners, retail sales, and/or businesses related to communication and transportation. 

JAN 01, 2019 (TUE): Holiday; markets closed.

JAN 02, 2019 (WED): Weak-medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Increased focus on leadership of governments or large corporations, and on businesses or products related to mining, steel, metals, coal, minerals, stone, large scale construction (e.g., tunnels, bridges, railroads, etc.). Some issues may be clarified or illuminated, possibly related to losses, endings, or increased controls (e.g., who is responsible, who will bear the burden of some expense, who will set the boundaries, which controls to impose, which [unprofitable] projects to end, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about a death or removal of an important leader (esp. old and/or conservative).

JAN 03, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Increased focus on pharmaceuticals (esp. related to addictive substances) or healthcare, possibly on problems with sales, shipments, or legalization.  

USA: Jan 3-5 — Concerns about earnings, profits, financial institutions, banks, as well as governmental contracting, healthcare, and social support for the needy. There may be anger and calls for action to implement some project or to make a decision in order to increase profits from or reduce expenses related to the areas above. The focus will likely be on domestic issues and the need to protect assets, protect population (esp. women and children), protect the savings, ensure stability in real estate, stability in earnings, etc.

JAN 04, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%).

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

Global: With Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and upcoming stressful transits to them from Mars, the probability of earthquakes is high all year (and will further increase in 2019-2020). I’ve been wanting to write a more detailed post and list all the high stress dates, but there are too many, so I keep postponing (I will still write it though). With Jupiter/Neptune trine in water signs unfolding mainly in May-Sep, we can expect improved conditions for and expansion of the related businesses (e.g., chemicals, oil, healthcare, drugs, religion, water, and navy). Weather-wise, this will likely bring an extremely wet year with rains, floods, etc.

Global: Jan 20-22, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. At this time, there may also be increased fluctuations of the related commodities and products, incl. metals, chemicals, oil, and minerals.

China: Jan 24-26 (esp. the 25th), 2019 — Increased probability of an important announcement about banks, savings, earnings, assets, or real estate. It may involve an aggressive or risky decision and may cause upset or concerns about stability/profits. Also, there may be increased concerns about earthquakes, vague restrictions, regulations related to navy/chemicals,/oil/steel/etc., and/or tensions related to navy, water, old buildings, and structures that may be unstable, built on water [reclaimed land], sandy soil (due to liquefaction-induced damage?), or built in secret/without proper preparation/using inappropriate materials (incl. toxic chemicals).

Global: Feb 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of accidents, fires, sudden storms, explosions, sudden power losses, and surprises involving military, athletes, telecoms, IT, aerospace, as well as electric power generating businesses and equipment. We may hear about problems due to overheating, abrupt loss of some functionality, sudden changes, lack of connectivity, etc. For ex., some electric car’s or airplane batteries overheat, or, a social media network suffers an outage. There may also be news about sudden military strikes (probably involving airplanes and/or missiles that can be deployed suddenly/quickly [likely via air and not water]).

Global: Apr 4 (+- several days), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be fluctuations in the price of related businesses, commodities or products, incl. oil, steel, chemicals, mining companies, companies that own/operate power plants or recycling facilities, etc. 

Global: Apr 24-26, 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters (esp. involving water, oil, gas, poisons, chemicals, mental issues, delusion, and drugs). For ex., some mentally unstable or drugged up person may attack a business related to education, transportation, or media; or, there may be a strong earthquake followed by a tsunami or problems with contaminated water; or, some healthcare epidemic or poisoning triggers a need for greater governmental controls (esp. over food supplies); and so on.

Global: May 3 – 10 (esp. 5-8), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, disasters, military tensions, and a strong move in the markets (probably down — could be a drop on  May 5-7 followed by a reversal to up by the 10th).

Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) —  there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.  

Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security). 

Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).

Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires,  and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).

Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant  move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. 

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).

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 early next year (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, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.

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.

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.
