For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

SEP 13, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

Sep 13-14, 2021 — Increased focus on oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, deceptive activities, religion, excessive precipitation, water, floods, beverages, navy, shipping over water, movies, etc. There may be minor concerns about these areas — for ex., a shipment’s status is unclear, next steps for an oil-related project are uncertain, a leader (e.g., CEO of a company in an area above) is not doing so well or is feeling sick. This is a short-lived influence that should clear by Tue.

USA: Sep 12-13, 2021 — Increased news related to military, weapons (e.g., sales deal or protests against gun violence), sports, athletes, competitions, fires, accidents, racing, fighting, and risky or dangerous activities. Also, increased focus on oil, gas, navy, ships, pharma, chemicals, and healthcare. There may be concerns about the areas above not doing well (e.g., higher than expected infection rates, worse than expected drug performance, chemical pollution, spread of some contaminant, oil spills, maritime accidents, etc.). There may be arguments over the projects in related areas (e.g., oil, navy, chemicals, etc.) — the disagreements may be over the unclear instructions or direction in which to proceed. Some actions may be confusing and result in losses because of poor timing or misunderstandings (e.g., a shipment of chemicals or medications ends up at a wrong location).

USA: Sep 13, 2021 — Positive news about the earnings, workforce, healthcare, social assistance-related projects (e.g., providing low-income housing). We may hear about increased spending on various programs that aim to assist the needy and/or on government-supported services (e.g., postal office, police, teachers).

SEP 14, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

USA: Sep 14-15, 2021 — Positive news about new projects or goals related to international relations, trade, and shipments. The projects or goals will likely focus on increasing the profits, improving collaboration among members of some international organization, expanding overseas, improving relations with allies, etc. International negotiations are more likely to go well at this time. Additionally, we may hear about some laws or legal requirements (taxes? tariffs?) that particularly involve women and/or earnings (esp. from international sources, incl. currency exchange). 

SEP 15, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (60%). Increased focus on deals, partnerships, and negotiations — there may be some struggles where the power/earnings may be seen as distributed unequally. Also, increased focus on women’s rights, strong female leaders, women in the military, women in sports (esp. any aggressive, dangerous sports), etc. — some issues around the balance of masculine and feminine may be featured in the news more prominently than usual. Additionally, increased focus on fintech, digital banking, banking technologies, currencies and crypto — we may hear about new initiatives (e.g., some technology that is used for financial transactions) or about governmental entities or large corporations looking into greater use/regulation of cryptocurrencies. Additional news about these or similar initiatives may come up around Sep 21-25, 2021 and Nov 8-19, 2021.

SEP 16, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (60%).

Sep 16-17, 2021 — Concerns about cash availability, lower than expected profits, financial losses, higher expenses, higher taxes, higher fees, etc. Also, focus on long term investments, financial security, stable growth and risk-avoidance. 

SEP 17, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

China: Sep 17-18, 2021 — Increased focus on investments, rates, loans, tariffs, etc. The news may be slightly stressful, such as unpleasant negotiations, having to deal with invasive inquiries, deals being less profitable than expected, reduced sales, problems with transportation, etc.

SEP 20, 2021 (MON) also looks like a down day. For the US, there may be concerns about profits being lower, increase costs/expenses, difficult negotiations, and problems for communication/transportation industries. 

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

Global: September 2021 — A preliminary look suggests that the month will likely have more down days than up days; Sep 1-3rd and 20th look the worst. At a glance: 1-3=Down, 6=Up, 7-8=Down, 9-10=Up, 13-15=Mixed, 16-23=Down, 24-27=Up, 28-30=Down.

NEW USA: Sep 20-24 (esp. the 23rd), 2021 — Increased focus on laws, regulations, higher education, international deals, international trade, and long distance transportation/shipments. There may be increased arguments over some laws and values (because of cultural differences or differences in beliefs about what is the right thing to do). The arguments may involve prominent leaders, governmental entities and/or large corporations; someone’s beliefs may be attacked or challenged. If there are ongoing discussions about some legislature, the debates may become more heated than usual.

NEW Global: Sep 20-25 (esp. the 23rd), 2021 — Increased news about earnings, finance, banks, currencies, crypto, investments, loans, debt, rates, and taxes. There may be higher than usual volatility and the value of some crypto-currency or Forex pair (EUR/USD?) may fluctuate more than usual. There may be surprise announcements related to the areas above (e.g., a new service feature, new fees, new regulations, rate changes, etc.). In particular, on Sep 23, 2021, there may be reports about a “sudden loss of value” or a larger than expected change in financial status (e.g., some entity is less stable or valuable than previously thought) for some related entity/product/service. There may be a connection to some news coming out of the US around the same time (possibly related to an international agreement or regulatory decisions).

NEW Global: Nov 8-19, 2021 — The week of Nov 8, Mars and Mercury will square Saturn and the following week of Nov 15, Mars will oppose Uranus. This may manifest as large quakes, accidents, tensions, possible problems for steel, iron, metals (tariffs? shortage?) the week of Nov 8. Then during the week of Nov 15, there may be increased problems for airplanes, aerospace and IT, accompanied by power and service outages (e.g., cloud provider or social media platform). Also, sudden surprises or upsets related to earnings, finance, taxes (on crypto?), tariffs, Forex and crypto — expect greater than usual volatility and large swings (down and then up?). Lastly, there may be excitement or anxious expectations related to some rule or laws (esp. affecting international trade, airlines, electric power, batteries, electric cars, IT, aerospace, and social media platforms).  

Global/USA: December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April and in August may be revisited and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.

Updated Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 2021.

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021;and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). This influence will likely intensify the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).

USA & Global: For the US, Aug, 2021 – Feb, 2024 (esp. +- 1-2 weeks around Mar 1, 2022, +- 1-2 weeks around Aug 1, 2022, Nov 2022 – mid Jan 2023, +- 1-2 weeks around Apr 1, 2023, Jul-Aug 2023, Oct-Nov 2023) — General themes of confusion or miscommunication related to military, leadership, sports, stock markets and any risky activities (gambling, racing, fighting, etc.) will persist as transiting Neptune will continue to make difficult aspects to the US Mars, Neptune, and then enter into the 4th house (homeland security, food supply, safety, stability, farming, land, real estate, banks’ assets, savings, etc.). Difficult transits of Neptune are generally associated with excessive precipitation, pollution, confusion, deception, and lack of clarity. For the US, Neptune’s transit may bring, among other things, excessive flooding, problems with chemicals (e.g., misuse of fertilizers, water supply pollution, etc.), problems with misuse of medicines/drugs (rise in addictions?), real estate problems (flood damage, soil erosion, contamination, mortgages “underwater,” entities re-defining zones or some geographical/administrative units, etc.), concerns about some banks engaging in deceptive practices, and problems for oil industry (lack of clear direction, pollution, spills). 

During the same time frame, the US will experience a slowly unfolding Pluto return as well as an opposition of the transiting Pluto the US Mercury (in the 8th house of investments/rates, ruling the 7th and 10th houses of partnerships and leadership, respectively). In the US chart, Pluto is in the 2nd house of banks/money and rules the 12th house of secrets, endings, hidden places, navy, oil, damp/wet places, hospitals, elder care facilities, etc. Difficult transits of Pluto are associated with the revelation of secrets, spying, unearthing previously buried things (can be literally like excavating something and burying it elsewhere), scandals, violent attacks, power struggles, power changing hands, changes in how the power is generated/used (e.g., by power plants, powerful corporations, governmental structures, individual leaders, etc.), and the overall destruction of some old ways to rebuild from the scratch (police reform? governmental changes?). 

In the summer and fall of 2023, there will be a few difficult transits, for the US and globally, indicative of major industrial accidents, disasters (e.g., fires, plane crashes, shipwrecks, etc.), bad weather events (e.g., major storms), earthquakes, violent attacks or military coups (esp. July-Aug and Oct-Nov 2023, in particular around July 31, Aug 13, Aug 21, Oct 4, and Nov 11). In 2023, during these same time periods (Jul-Aug and Oct-Nov), there may be increased activities or problems involving recycling facilities, mines, underground storage, power plants and especially nuclear power plants/weapons (e.g., a large storm causes a flood and a temporary shutdown of a nuclear plant).  

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

Haiti: Aug 2021 – Sep 2022 — A series of difficult transits may bring problems for the country in the form of sudden upsetting events (e.g., quakes or bad storms). During this time, the country may undergo a process of re-birth of some sort where a previous established order is replaced with a new one. In particular, there may be earthquakes and problems with power losses. At the same time, power plants and/or networks of all sorts as well as airport facilities can be rebuilt or significantly revamped — this may be a planned improvement or as a response to some damaging event. In Aug-Oct 2021, Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, electricity, airports, networks, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes (wide spread meaningful events affecting public), while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation, massive power, power plants, power struggles, mining, underground, recycling [turning old trash into valuable power source]). In 2022, several more time periods will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep. At this times, there is an increased chance of a bad weather event, power losses, power struggles, or some major reforms to improve infrastructure/build a new power plant/open a new recycling facility/etc.

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

September 6-12, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

SEP 6, 2021 (MON): Holiday; U.S markets closed. 

SEP 7, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Likely, greater than usual market moves. Possible concerns about healthcare-related topics (e.g., rise in the infections, poor performance of some drug, concerns about addictions or overdose rates, etc.) and about excessive precipitation, oil prices, chemicals, poisons, and pollution/contamination (e.g., of water). 

USA: Sep 7-8, 2021 — Increased news related to military, weapons (e.g., sales deal or protests against gun violence), sports, athletes, competitions, fires, accidents, racing, fighting, and risky or dangerous activities. We may hear about prominent individuals in those areas (e.g., high ranking military or famous athletes) who are also [governmental or corporate] leaders. New leaders may be featured in the news (e.g., new coach) or leaders from these areas may rise to prominence. The perception about these leaders may be that they are masculine, macho, aggressive/assertive, rash, and not very compromising — these qualities may be upsetting or irritating to some and there may be arguments over these individuals’ leadership skills/style (e.g., that they act too fast or too aggressive). 

SEP 8, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

China: Sep 8-9, 2021 — Increased focus on negotiations, agreements, commerce, communication, and transportation. We may hear about new trade or shipment deals, increased stock market activity, and financial policies that affect investments and rates. As elaborated further in the “ALL WEEK” section, the agreements may be entered into suddenly, old agreements may suddenly be broken, or the deals may be made with unusual partners. The areas may especially involve military and airspace capabilities, flying weapons (rockets, drones?), AI, high tech, IT, networks, etc.

SEP 9, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).

China: Sep 9–10, 2021 — Increased focus on deals, commerce, trade, etc. involving oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, navy, and biomedical or healthcare-related products and services. We may also hear about financial policies or decisions affecting currency value — there may be an element of confusion or obfuscation where the exact details of the situation or a deal are unclear. A deal made at this time may be made in good faith and with high hopes, but the details may be missing or obscured — if so, adjustments will need to be made later to provide clarity and fill in the [correct] details. The agreements/deals may involve oil, gas, pharma, fishing, navy, prisons, chemicals, pollution, beverages, movies, etc. 

SEP 10, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (60%). 

USA: Sep 12-13, 2021 — Increased news related to military, weapons (e.g., sales deal or protests against gun violence), sports, athletes, competitions, fires, accidents, racing, fighting, and risky or dangerous activities. Also, increased focus on oil, gas, navy, ships, pharma, chemicals, and healthcare. There may be concerns about the areas above not doing well (e.g., higher than expected infection rates, worse than expected drug performance, chemical pollution, spread of some contaminant, oil spills, maritime accidents, etc.). There may be arguments over the projects in related areas (e.g., oil, navy, chemicals, etc.) — the disagreements may be over the unclear instructions or direction in which to proceed. Some actions may be confusing and result in losses because of poor timing or misunderstandings (e.g., a shipment of chemicals or medications ends up at a wrong location).

China: Sep 12, 2021 — Possibly, an important announcement about the currency value, financial policies, taxes, insurance, tariffs, or trade/shipment agreements. These may signify a beginning of a new project that aims to increase profits and money flow, as well as improve bank stability.

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

Global: September 2021 — A preliminary look suggests that the month will likely have more down days than up days; Sep 1-3rd and 20th look the worst. At a glance: 1-3=Down, 6=Up, 7-8=Down, 9-10=Up, 13-15=Mixed, 16-23=Down, 24-27=Up, 28-30=Down.

Global/USA: December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April and in August may be revisited and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.

Updated Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 2021.

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021;and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). This influence will likely intensify the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).

USA & Global: For the US, Aug, 2021 – Feb, 2024 (esp. +- 1-2 weeks around Mar 1, 2022, +- 1-2 weeks around Aug 1, 2022, Nov 2022 – mid Jan 2023, +- 1-2 weeks around Apr 1, 2023, Jul-Aug 2023, Oct-Nov 2023) — General themes of confusion or miscommunication related to military, leadership, sports, stock markets and any risky activities (gambling, racing, fighting, etc.) will persist as transiting Neptune will continue to make difficult aspects to the US Mars, Neptune, and then enter into the 4th house (homeland security, food supply, safety, stability, farming, land, real estate, banks’ assets, savings, etc.). Difficult transits of Neptune are generally associated with excessive precipitation, pollution, confusion, deception, and lack of clarity. For the US, Neptune’s transit may bring, among other things, excessive flooding, problems with chemicals (e.g., misuse of fertilizers, water supply pollution, etc.), problems with misuse of medicines/drugs (rise in addictions?), real estate problems (flood damage, soil erosion, contamination, mortgages “underwater,” entities re-defining zones or some geographical/administrative units, etc.), concerns about some banks engaging in deceptive practices, and problems for oil industry (lack of clear direction, pollution, spills). 

During the same time frame, the US will experience a slowly unfolding Pluto return as well as an opposition of the transiting Pluto the US Mercury (in the 8th house of investments/rates, ruling the 7th and 10th houses of partnerships and leadership, respectively). In the US chart, Pluto is in the 2nd house of banks/money and rules the 12th house of secrets, endings, hidden places, navy, oil, damp/wet places, hospitals, elder care facilities, etc. Difficult transits of Pluto are associated with the revelation of secrets, spying, unearthing previously buried things (can be literally like excavating something and burying it elsewhere), scandals, violent attacks, power struggles, power changing hands, changes in how the power is generated/used (e.g., by power plants, powerful corporations, governmental structures, individual leaders, etc.), and the overall destruction of some old ways to rebuild from the scratch (police reform? governmental changes?). 

In the summer and fall of 2023, there will be a few difficult transits, for the US and globally, indicative of major industrial accidents, disasters (e.g., fires, plane crashes, shipwrecks, etc.), bad weather events (e.g., major storms), earthquakes, violent attacks or military coups (esp. July-Aug and Oct-Nov 2023, in particular around July 31, Aug 13, Aug 21, Oct 4, and Nov 11). In 2023, during these same time periods (Jul-Aug and Oct-Nov), there may be increased activities or problems involving recycling facilities, mines, underground storage, power plants and especially nuclear power plants/weapons (e.g., a large storm causes a flood and a temporary shutdown of a nuclear plant).  

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

Haiti: Aug 2021 – Sep 2022 — A series of difficult transits may bring problems for the country in the form of sudden upsetting events (e.g., quakes or bad storms). During this time, the country may undergo a process of re-birth of some sort where a previous established order is replaced with a new one. In particular, there may be earthquakes and problems with power losses. At the same time, power plants and/or networks of all sorts as well as airport facilities can be rebuilt or significantly revamped — this may be a planned improvement or as a response to some damaging event. In Aug-Oct 2021, Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, electricity, airports, networks, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes (wide spread meaningful events affecting public), while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation, massive power, power plants, power struggles, mining, underground, recycling [turning old trash into valuable power source]). In 2022, several more time periods will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep. At this times, there is an increased chance of a bad weather event, power losses, power struggles, or some major reforms to improve infrastructure/build a new power plant/open a new recycling facility/etc.

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

August 30 – September 3, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

AUG 30, 2021 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. There may be increased news about oil shortages, oil spills, chemical or oil pollution, fighting over oil, infectious disease outbreaks (any disease that involves fever, contaminated water, infection, etc.), dangerous situations that involve medical facilities/prisons/hospitals/biomedical research labs/water treatment facilities/chemicals plants/etc. (e.g., fires, attacks, protests, accidents), and so on. Weather-wise, there may be increased focus on hot and humid conditions, volcanoes erupting under or near water, and excessive precipitation negatively affecting maritime travel/shipments. In general, increased propensity for accidents involving hot/steaming/poisonous liquids, gasses, fumes, etc. These concerns may result in a large market drop, esp. Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021. 

Haiti: Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 (and see additional dates for 2022) — For Haiti, unfortunately, the Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes in Aug-mid-Oct of 2021, while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation), so the few two months will be a difficult time for the country. In particular, Aug 29-Sep 3 look stressful. Then in 2022, several more time ranges will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep. 

USA: Aug 30 – Sep 3, 2021 — Increased news about international partnerships, agreements, and new goals. We may hear about new arrangements, new leaders, new vision, new contracts, and so on. These may especially involve communication, transportation, commerce, and projects involving airlines, aerospace, IT, and high tech. 

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). This influence will likely intensify the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).

USA & Global: For the US, Aug, 2021 – Feb, 2024 (esp. +- 1-2 weeks around Mar 1, 2022, +- 1-2 weeks around Aug 1, 2022, Nov 2022 – mid Jan 2023, +- 1-2 weeks around Apr 1, 2023, Jul-Aug 2023, Oct-Nov 2023) — General themes of confusion or miscommunication related to military, leadership, sports, stock markets and any risky activities (gambling, racing, fighting, etc.) will persist as transiting Neptune will continue to make difficult aspects to the US Mars, Neptune, and then enter into the 4th house (homeland security, food supply, safety, stability, farming, land, real estate, banks’ assets, savings, etc.). Difficult transits of Neptune are generally associated with excessive precipitation, pollution, confusion, deception, and lack of clarity. For the US, Neptune’s transit may bring, among other things, excessive flooding, problems with chemicals (e.g., misuse of fertilizers, water supply pollution, etc.), problems with misuse of medicines/drugs (rise in addictions?), real estate problems (flood damage, soil erosion, contamination, mortgages “underwater,” entities re-defining zones or some geographical/administrative units, etc.), concerns about some banks engaging in deceptive practices, and problems for oil industry (lack of clear direction, pollution, spills). 

During the same time frame, the US will experience a slowly unfolding Pluto return as well as an opposition of the transiting Pluto the US Mercury (in the 8th house of investments/rates, ruling the 7th and 10th houses of partnerships and leadership, respectively). In the US chart, Pluto is in the 2nd house of banks/money and rules the 12th house of secrets, endings, hidden places, navy, oil, damp/wet places, hospitals, elder care facilities, etc. Difficult transits of Pluto are associated with the revelation of secrets, spying, unearthing previously buried things (can be literally like excavating something and burying it elsewhere), scandals, violent attacks, power struggles, power changing hands, changes in how the power is generated/used (e.g., by power plants, powerful corporations, governmental structures, individual leaders, etc.), and the overall destruction of some old ways to rebuild from the scratch (police reform? governmental changes?). 

In the summer and fall of 2023, there will be a few difficult transits, for the US and globally, indicative of major industrial accidents, disasters (e.g., fires, plane crashes, shipwrecks, etc.), bad weather events (e.g., major storms), earthquakes, violent attacks or military coups (esp. July-Aug and Oct-Nov 2023, in particular around July 31, Aug 13, Aug 21, Oct 4, and Nov 11). In 2023, during these same time periods (Jul-Aug and Oct-Nov), there may be increased activities or problems involving recycling facilities, mines, underground storage, power plants and especially nuclear power plants/weapons (e.g., a large storm causes a flood and a temporary shutdown of a nuclear plant).  

China: Aug 29, 2021 — Increased news about financial policies, rates, loans, debt, currency value, investment plans, investment rules, taxes, tariffs, insurance policies, etc. Announcements made at this time regarding some financial policy may involve going back to a previous situation (prior agreement, old rates, old status, old taxation rules, etc.), reverting back to some prior arrangement, or re-engaging with old partners. The news may affect large groups of people (probably investors or debt holders) and may be perceived as unfavorable due to some confusion about the reason for the announcements. 

AUG 31, 2021 (TUE): Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%). 

USA & Global: Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Mars opposition to Neptune (the transit is active all week, but will be the most precise at this time) — Possibly a reversal [drop?] in oil prices, as well as increased concerns or troubling news in other Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, excessively wet weather, floods, etc. Another difficult Mars-Neptune transit, Mars square Neptune, was also in effect during hurricane Katrina (Aug 29, 2005). This week, hurricane Ida slammed the US Golf coast on Katrina’s 16th anniversary. Both hurricanes made landfall in Louisiana as cat. 4 storms and have brought catastrophic damage. Ida may in fact end up being more devastating than Katrina as the transiting Mars/Neptune pair is currently negatively aspecting the natal Mars-square-Neptune aspect in the US chart. The types of problems to watch out for include oil/chemical spills, gas leaks, water supply contamination, spread of infections diseases, and problems with providing medical aid (e.g., fires at the hospital, rise in infections, conditions involving excessive moisture and heat, lack of cooling/refrigeration, etc.). This time may also be difficult for many on an emotional level, so there may be a spike in individuals needing mental health support.

Additionally, at this time there may be increased arguments, fights or disagreements related to oil, gas, chemicals, parma, pollution, etc. In general, Neptunian areas including oil, gas, pharma, medicines, music, movies, religion, chemicals, and so on will likely experience some difficulties, disruptions, attacks, upsets, confusion, situations where some info is missing/unavailable (e.g., a body of water is contaminated but the source is unclear), and/or losses. Locations related to Neptune include bodies of water, islands, beaches, biomedical research labs, hospitals, prisons, chemical processing plants, oil rigs, oil tankers, monasteries, retirement homes, movie theaters, music halls, navy ships, navy staff, medical staff, fishing boats, aquariums, water cleaning facilities, swimming pools, pharmacies, etc. These locations may experience a greater than usual number of problems at this time (e.g., water leaks, engines not working properly, loss of power, oil spills, gas leaks, contamination, pipes bursting, accidents, protests, fires, attacks, deceptive activities, volcanic eruptions, etc.).

[After I wrote this, I saw the news about a massive fire around lake Tahoe in the US (https://apnews.com/article/fires-lakes-california-weather-643a876ab9a501480bdc74a8915eebce) — this situation fits the Mars opposite/square/conjunct Neptune signature (conjunction, square and opposition are considered difficult transits bringing tensions and important events). Since the transit is expected to intensify through Sep 3, 2021, I expect the conditions to further worsen until the end of the week.]

SEP 01, 2021 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%). 

SEP 02, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (65-70%).

USA: Sep 2, 2021 — Increased focus on leaders; clarification of financial policies affecting loans, rates, and debt.

SEP 03, 2021 (FR): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Friday or Monday (Sep 6) may be a reversal day (from down to up) — the reversal may begin on Fr afternoon or on Mon.

———————

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

Global: September 2021 — A preliminary look suggests that the month will likely have more down days than up days; Sep 1-3rd and 20th look the worst. At a glance: 1-3=Down, 6=Up, 7-8=Down, 9-10=Up, 13-15=Mixed, 16-23=Down, 24-27=Up, 28-30=Down.

Global/USA: December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April and in August may be revisited and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.

Updated Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 2021.

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021;and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

August 23-29, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

AUG 23, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60%).  The focus today may be on long-term stable investments that grow slowly but surely overtime, esp. related to airlines, IT, aerospace, robotics, high tech, etc. There may also be increased interest in profits from or profitable projects related to air purification or projects that involve air/wind/flying /sound and/or use distributed architecture (drone delivery, airlines, audio-signal processing, sound recordings, radars, long term cloud storage, etc.).

Aug 23-24, 2021 — Possible concerns about healthcare, parma, chemicals, oil, wet weather, or some confusing or deceptive activities (esp. related to communication, transportation, or education). 

USA: Aug 20-23, 2021 — Increased focus on the earnings, banks, and finance. There may be concerns about these areas (e.g., reduced sales, financial losses, accounting errors, deceptive financial practices, changes that may lead to instability, etc.).

USA: Aug 20-23, 2021 — Part of the ongoing long-term transit (see the ALL WEEK section below); influence to intensify this week — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).

USA & Global: For the US, Aug, 2021 – Feb, 2024 (esp. +- 1-2 weeks around Mar 1, 2022, +- 1-2 weeks around Aug 1, 2022, Nov 2022 – mid Jan 2023, +- 1-2 weeks around Apr 1, 2023, Jul-Aug 2023, Oct-Nov 2023) — General themes of confusion or miscommunication related to military, leadership, sports, stock markets and any risky activities (gambling, racing, fighting, etc.) will persist as transiting Neptune will continue to make difficult aspects to the US Mars, Neptune, and then enter into the 4th house (homeland security, food supply, safety, stability, farming, land, real estate, banks’ assets, savings, etc.). Difficult transits of Neptune are generally associated with excessive precipitation, pollution, confusion, deception, and lack of clarity. For the US, Neptune’s transit may bring, among other things, excessive flooding, problems with chemicals (e.g., misuse of fertilizers, water supply pollution, etc.), problems with misuse of medicines/drugs (rise in addictions?), real estate problems (flood damage, soil erosion, contamination, mortgages “underwater,” entities re-defining zones or some geographical/administrative units, etc.), concerns about some banks engaging in deceptive practices, and problems for oil industry (lack of clear direction, pollution, spills).

During the same time frame, the US will experience a slowly unfolding Pluto return as well as an opposition of the transiting Pluto the US Mercury (in the 8th house of investments/rates, ruling the 7th and 10th houses of partnerships and leadership, respectively). In the US chart, Pluto is in the 2nd house of banks/money and rules the 12th house of secrets, endings, hidden places, navy, oil, damp/wet places, hospitals, elder care facilities, etc. Difficult transits of Pluto are associated with the revelation of secrets, spying, unearthing previously buried things (can be literally like excavating something and burying it elsewhere), scandals, violent attacks, power struggles, power changing hands, changes in how the power is generated/used (e.g., by power plants, powerful corporations, governmental structures, individual leaders, etc.), and the overall destruction of some old ways to rebuild from the scratch (police reform? governmental changes?).

In the summer and fall of 2023, there will be a few difficult transits, for the US and globally, indicative of major industrial accidents, disasters, earthquakes or violent attacks (esp. July-Aug and Oct-Nov 2023, in particular around July 31, Aug 13, Aug 21, Oct 4, and Nov 11).   

AUG 24, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). 

AUG 25, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

AUG 26, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

USA: Aug 26-27, 2021 — Increased focus on leadership and status on the world arena. There may be increased news or communication about the leaders’ travel, speeches, social media presence, or negotiations. The negotiations may involve more partners or locations than usual; some agreements may be reached. There may also be concerns about increased expenses, overpaying for something (inflation? overpriced stocks/products?), or lower than expected profits.

AUG 27, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

Aug 29, 2021 — On the 29th (Sun), there may be an announcement involving a prominent figure, such as a politician, actor, medical doctor, clergy, or someone who is very detail-oriented (e.g., a scientist, accountant, pharmacist, etc.) and/or promotes what they believe is a healthy lifestyle (through foods and supplements, but not so much exercise except may be pilates or yoga). The announcement may be related to their health, healthcare in general, travel, transportation, and/or education  —  public opinion about the announcement may be divided.

Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. There may be increased news about oil shortages, oil spills, chemical or oil pollution, fighting over oil, infectious disease outbreaks (any disease that involves fever, contaminated water, infection, etc.), dangerous situations that involve medical facilities/prisons/hospitals/biomedical research labs/water treatment facilities/chemicals plants/etc. (e.g., fires, attacks, protests, accidents), and so on. Weather-wise, there may be increased focus on hot and humid conditions, volcanoes erupting under or near water, and excessive precipitation negatively affecting maritime travel/shipments. In general, increased propensity for accidents involving hot/steaming/poisonous liquids, gasses, fumes, etc. These concerns may result in a large market drop, esp. on Sep 3, 2021. 

Haiti: Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 (and see additional dates for 2022) — For Haiti, unfortunately, the Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes in Aug-mid-Oct of 2021, while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation), so the few two months will be a difficult time for the country. In particular, Aug 29-Sep 3 look stressful. Then in 2022, several more time ranges will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep.

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW Global: September 2021 — A preliminary look suggests that the month will likely have more down days than up days; Sep 1-3rd and 20th look the worst. At a glance: 1-3=Down, 6=Up, 7-8=Down, 9-10=Up, 13-15=Mixed, 16-23=Down, 24-27=Up, 28-30=Down.

Global/USA: December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April and in August may be revisited and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.

Updated Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 2021.

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021;and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

August 16-22, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

AUG 16, 2021 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). Increased focus on communication, transportation, international relations, trade, retail sales, long distance travel and shipments. The news may be upsetting or elicit divided opinions — there may be concerns about the safety of travel/shipping, travel delays, miscommunication, delayed negotiations, problems with communication or transportation companies due to some disruption in schedule/routine or missing data or missing parts. The issue may be small (e.g., a tiny part of a larger mechanism is missing, a part is slightly off in shape/size, or a small piece of data is unaccounted for), but it may have a greater than expected effect. 

Aug 16-17, 2021 — Increased news about excessive precipitation, contaminated water supply, spread of infectious diseases, fighting over water/oil/medications, disagreements about oil/navy/chemicals/pharma/healthcare, etc.The disagreements may be between a side that demands more details and precise statistics/reports and a side that draws attention to the larger picture and humanitarian aspects of some issues. For ex., one side may demand a precise breakdown of some numbers before the funds can be released, while a different side may argue to release the funds asap to save lives.

AUG 17, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

Aug 17-19, 2021 — Increased focus on gold; there may be greater than usual value fluctuations (possibly up).

Aug 17-19, 2021 — Increased arguments, heated discussions, upsets, or disagreements over issues related to healthcare (esp. sales, agreements, or deals), commerce, communication and transportation, and education. The disagreements may be over small details — someone may be accused of “spitting hairs” and making a mountain out of a mole hill. The issue may have to do with an accounting error, data report error, incomplete report, lack of detailed communication, missing statistics, or, too much detail may be reported making it hard for the audience to digest. 

AUG 18, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). The direction may reverse from the morning to the afternoon (possibly from down to up) on the news about some agreement, law changes, or exciting news about a leader of some large organization. The leader or a prominent person (e.g., an actor) may be featured in the news because of their flamboyance, over-the-top performance, attention-seeking behavior, or some award-worthy achievement.

China: Aug 18-20, 2021 — Increased news about deals, partnerships, or projects that involve large scale manufacturing or construction. We may hear about a start of a new project or changes/disruptions to the old established processes (esp. involving governmental oversight or large corporations). Some old agreement or process may undergo a change or be the focus of calls for a change —  this may involve projects or locations related to hidden or remote places and the end-of-cycle activities, incl. hospitals, prisons, monasteries, underground storage, underwater locations, waste recycling facilities, etc. There is also an increased probability of an industrial accident or an earthquake that may cause structural damage to old buildings or unearth something like an ancient relic (an ancient burial?). 

AUG 19, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

AUG 20, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

USA: Aug 20-23, 2021 — Increased focus on the earnings, banks, and finance. There may be concerns about these areas (e.g., reduced sales, financial losses, accounting errors, deceptive financial practices, changes that may lead to instability, etc.).

USA: Aug 20-23, 2021 — Part of the ongoing long-term transit (see the ALL WEEK section below); influence to intensify this week — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).

MON-TUE (AUG 23-24, 2021) — At a glance, these look to be down days for the market, possibly due to concerns about healthcare, parma, chemicals, oil, wet weather, or some deceptive activities. 

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

Updated Global: Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. There may be increased news about oil shortages, oil spills, chemical or oil pollution, fighting over oil, infectious disease outbreaks (any disease that involves fever, contaminated water, infection, etc.), dangerous situations that involve medical facilities/prisons/hospitals/biomedical research labs/water treatment facilities/chemicals plants/etc. (e.g., fires, attacks, protests, accidents), and so on. Weather-wise, there may be increased focus on hot and humid conditions, volcanoes erupting under or near water, and excessive precipitation negatively affecting maritime travel/shipments. In general, increased propensity for accidents involving hot/steaming/poisonous liquids, gasses, fumes, etc. These concerns may result in a large market drop, esp. on Sep 3, 2021.

NEW Haiti: Aug 29 – Sep 3, 2021 (and see additional dates for 2022) — For Haiti, unfortunately, the Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes in Aug-mid-Oct of 2021, while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation), so the few two months will be a difficult time for the country. In particular, Aug 29-Sep 3 look stressful. Then in 2022, several more time ranges will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep. 

Updated Global/USA: December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April and in August may be revisited and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.

Updated Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 2021.

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021;and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

August 9-15, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

AUG 9, 2021 (MON): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). This will likely be a reversal day (probably from down to up). The reversal may begin as early as Monday afternoon or occur on Tuesday. 

Aug 9, 2021 — Increased focus on the oil prices, pandemic spreading, some healthcare-related concerns, or concerns about a decline in profits or losses from some business related to oil, gas, chemicals, or pharma. There may be a general sense of confusion about the earnings or the source of profits/income — the confusion may be due to some details (e.g., the exact price, the exact earnings, the exact cash flow amount, the exact expense, etc.) being omitted or numbers not adding up. This is also one of the key dates this year (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse — initially, I expected this to be an intermediate TOP, but now it looks to be an intermediate BOTTOM (meaning that gold and/or silver will likely go up this week).

Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 

USA: Aug 2-13 (esp. 10-11), 2021 — Increased focus on important developments affecting large numbers of people related to retail sales and/or communication/transportation. Thus may involve an acquisition, sale, agreement, or negotiations (e.g., related to a communication or transportation project). This may be related to one or more of the following domains: phones, social media, phone apps used for shopping/communication, aerospace, electric cars, power plants, airlines, robotics, AI features, cloud services, IT services provider, etc. The announcement or developments will likely be perceived positively by the larger public (e.g., because something is very innovative or it enables faster travel, shipping or communication).

China: Aug 9, 2021 — Increased news about international partnerships, negotiations, deals, and dealing with competitors. There may be increased focus on power plays, spying, manipulative or deceptive activities (esp. related to finance), or, alternatively, on activities that literally occur underground (e.g., mining) or involve recycling, power plants (esp. nuclear), waste management, etc. 

AUG 10, 2021 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

Aug 10-12, 2021 — Busy news days with focus on communication, transportation, and commerce. We may hear some important announcements in these areas, from an accident to the leadership change to the restructuring plans. The announcements may receive a divided reception with half being in favor and half against the change. Increased probability of an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel, car travel, communication and transportation in general, retail sales, international trade, and social media platforms. The issue may be related to healthcare, veterinary care, social services, and services involving fixing/cleaning. The concern may be that some details have been missed or overlooked. For ex.,  a maintenance crew doesn’t clean an airplane fully/correctly and it causes a major delay, or, concerns about healthcare (or about some livestock disease) affect travel and retail sales. Alternatively, there may be arguments against getting hung up on too many details (e.g., when reviewing some data) because it causes unnecessary delays. Weather-wise, there is an increased possibility of strong winds and fires; in particular, medical facilities, veterinarian facilities, and any farms etc. housing animals could be in the news because of being affected by turbulent weather. More generally, there may be increased news about animal welfare, safety, safe transportation, safe housing, etc.

AUG 11, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

USA: Aug 11-12, 2021 — Increased focus on leaders (esp. female) and status on the world arena. There may be minor positive news regarding improved earnings, higher status (esp. in some financial sphere or related to female leaders), beneficial agreements, and so on. 

AUG 12, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

AUG 13, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW China: Aug 18-20, 2021 — Increased news about deals, partnerships, or projects that involve large scale manufacturing or construction. We may hear about a start of a new project or changes/disruptions to the old established processes (esp. involving governmental oversight or large corporations). Some old agreement or process may undergo a change or be the focus of calls for a change —  this may involve projects or locations related to hidden or remote places and the end-of-cycle activities, incl. hospitals, prisons, monasteries, underground storage, underwater locations, waste recycling facilities, etc. There is also an increased probability of an industrial accident or an earthquake that may cause structural damage to old buildings or unearth something like an ancient relic (an ancient burial?). 

Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) will be around Aug 9, and especially Dec 15, 2021. 

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that will be prominent late March – early April 2021 (this is is true globally as well, but may affect the US more).

Global: Sep 1-3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. This may result in a large market drop on Sep 3, 2021.

Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.).

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

NEW Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector. 

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021; and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

August 2-8, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

AUG 2, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60-65%). Possible delays in reaching some agreement or sale, esp. in the areas related to IT, telecoms, aerospace, electronics, power generation, high tech, or other similar domains. Negotiations may stall and there may be travel delays as well (esp. by air or car). Businesses in these domains may also experience negative publicity or find themselves “under fire” figuratively or literally (e.g., an IT business or an airport temporarily shuts off services due to excessive fires/winds). Also, there may be a disagreement between a younger and more famous or flamboyant leader and a more senior leader (possibly from an IT or aerospace company) —  this may involve differences in opinion about using some old but reliable technology vs. trying new ways of communicating, selling, or shipping the products. The new innovative approach is more likely to “win” at this time. 

Aug 2-3, 2021 — There may be increased (and likely positive) news about the banks and financial institutions adopting the use of digital currencies or implementing some advanced tech approach. Financial institutions that are “early adopters” may see increased gains or positive reviews at this time [they may be seen as better prepared and more stable].

Aug 2-6, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of gold vs. cryptocurrencies; or perhaps even on trading one using the other. With both, there may be increased discussions focused on stability and reducing volatility concerns. 

USA: Aug 2-13 (esp. 10-11), 2021 — Increased focus on important developments affecting large numbers of people related to retail sales and/or communication/transportation. Thus may involve an acquisition, sale, agreement, or negotiations (e.g., related to a communication or transportation project). This may be related to one or more of the following domains: phones, social media, phone apps used for shopping/communication, aerospace, electric cars, power plants, airlines, robotics, AI features, cloud services, IT services provider, etc. The announcement or developments will likely be perceived positively by the larger public (e.g., because something is very innovative or it enables faster travel, shipping or communication).

China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then  suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed). 

AUG 3, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). A day of rapidly changing news and developments. These may particularly involve communication/transportation, IT, telecoms, high tech, aerospace, and commerce. Compared to Mon, the discussions may pick up pace, but the negotiations may take an unexpected turn. An agreement may be reached but with a surprising twist, or alternatively, an agreement/sale that was about to be reached may suddenly be called off. There may also be unexpected problems with electric power supply or data connectivity — some internet service or a platform may briefly go down, or there may be power outages or flight delays due to excessive fires and winds (e.g., a wind suddenly changes direction).

China: Aug 3-6 (esp. the 5th), 2021 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships; there may be increased talks or some deals may be reached (eg.g., to sell more weapons or to engage in military collaboration). At the same time, there may be increased international tensions and saber rattling — at this time, China may be less amicable than usual and tough words may be exchanged. 

AUG 4, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

Aug 4-5, 2021 — Continuing mild concerns about fires possibly disrupting travel or the work of some IT hub/center/company. 

AUG 5, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

AUG 6, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 

MON (AUG 9, 2021) — Looks like a down day on concerns about oil prices, pandemic spreading, some there healthcare-related concerns, or concerns about a decline in profits or losses from some business related to oil, gas, chemicals, or pharma.

Aug 10-11, 2021 — Increased probability of an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel, car travel, communication and transportation in general, retail sales, international trade, and social media platforms. The issue may be related to healthcare, veterinary care, social services, and services involving fixing/cleaning. The concern may be that some details have been missed or overlooked. For ex.,  a maintenance crew doesn’t clean an airplane fully/correctly and it causes a major delay, or, concerns about healthcare (or about some livestock disease) affect travel and retail sales. Alternatively, there may be arguments against getting hung up on too many details (e.g., when reviewing some data) because it causes unnecessary delays.

———————

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

Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) will be around Aug 9, and especially Dec 15, 2021. 

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that will be prominent late March – early April 2021 (this is is true globally as well, but may affect the US more).

Global: Sep 1-3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. This may result in a large market drop on Sep 3, 2021.

Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.).

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021; and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster.

Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

July 26 – August 1, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUL 26, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Disagreements about the value or funding of projects related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and social services. This may be due to the lack of detailed reporting necessary to release the funds, or tensions between some emotional appeal (e.g., to provide more services to the needy) and some factual assessments (e.g., that there is a scarcity of funds). 

Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of gold (and silver). Gold, and probably also silver, may drop.

USA: Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on retail sales, communication and transportation businesses, as well as financial issues and policies (incl. interest rates, debt, loans, budget deficit, currency value, embargoes, sanctions, etc.). We may hear about some unpopular policy being implemented, arguments over financial policies, arguments over Federal deficit, and/or heated discussion urging swift actions to address some financial issue. The focus may be on ensuring that the change enhances financial stability and security. One side may argue that the change is needed asap [to ensure safety and security], while the other side may argue that the change may put the security or safety at risk, that the change is somehow unsafe, or that the change shouldn’t be rushed. 

JUL 27, 2021 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55-60%). The up influence is stronger in the afternoon. Also, increased focus in the news on excessively wet weather, rains, floods, etc. as long as oil, gas, navy, maritime transport, pharma, healthcare, infectious diseases, chemicals, drugs, addictions, etc. There may be slight concerns about an overabundance or accessibility of the related products or services (e.g., too much oil is available, too many ships are trying to enter a port, too many people are infected, too many people are addicted, etc.).

Global/USA: Jul 27-30, 2021 — Possibly large stock market moves, esp. on Jul 28-29. The direction may be up. Regardless of the direction, there may be increased volatility with investors going overboard and some limits being exceeded. Also, at this time we can expect increased news about immigration, laws, international relations, and long distance travel/transportation. There may be some legal arguments, conflicts involving judges, or difficulties for travelers and companies involved in transporting goods over long distances. Travel and shipments may temporarily be disrupted (possibly due to weather or some legal decision). In terms of weather, this time may correspond to some extreme conditions (like a hot dry spell, excessive winds, volcanic eruption polluting air with ashes, etc.). The events above (e.g., being involved in a high-profile lawsuit or experiencing difficulties while traveling internationally) may involve a celebrity or a prominent person (e.g., royalty, actor, politician, etc.).

Another possibility is an accident (esp. a fire, explosion, or some attack) involving transportation (most likely cars or airplanes)— for ex., there may be a recall by some car manufacturer, problems with international travel destination, airplane manufacturer experiencing losses, etc. The value of the associated business may swing wildly — possibly a large drop followed by an up swing due to investors buying stock at a low price. Additionally or alternatively, the volatility may be due to a legal decision of some sort — possibly a previous decision or law being recalled, or a legal approval being unexpectedly postponed. Given transits to the U.S. natal chart at that time, the situation may be related to a U.S. business — in particular, an aerospace-related business, an airline, an airplane manufacturer, car manufacturer, a communication company, a major retailer, and/or a major on-line services provider. There may be some major event or an announcement in the related domains (also possibly related to education/teaching). This may range from an announcement about a new exciting aerospace project (e.g., a new satellite being launched), a technological breakthrough, to a power grid outage, cloud services provider outage, car or airplane manufacturer recall, an airline declaring bankruptcy, restraints on import/export of cars or some related parts, or some other similar event that may be exciting or shocking.

JUL 28, 2021 (WED): Strong influence; market may go up (65%). 

Jul 28-29, 2021 — Regardless of the direction, expect high volatility. Areas that may be affected relatively more include long distance transportation/shipments, import/export, international travel, trains, railroads, engines, and airplanes. There may be concerns about these areas, from travel delays, to accidents, to breakdowns (possibly from excessive speed or overheating).

Jul 28-30, 2021 — Likely, an important announcement related to retail sales and/or communication/transportation — some acquisition, sale, agreement, price settlement, release of funds, etc. This may be related to a US business (esp. phones, social media, phone apps used for shopping/communication, aerospace, electric cars, power plants, airlines, robotics, AI features, cloud services, IT services provider, etc.). The app or the item may be something that is used by younger audience, is used for education, and involves IT/high tech/computers. The market may overreact to the news. 

JUL 29, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go up (65%). 

JUL 30, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Likely, a reversal in the direction from July 28-29. The mood today may be less excited and more practical compared to Wed-Th. (e.g., now that the deal has been reached, how will it be implemented and what are the associated expenses/profits?).

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

Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) will be around Aug 9, and especially Dec 15, 2021. 

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that will be prominent late March – early April 2021 (this is is true globally as well, but may affect the US more).

Global: Sep 1-3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. This may result in a large market drop on Sep 3, 2021.

Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.).

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022.

Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news). 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021; and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

July 19-25, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUL 19, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60-65%). There may be minor concerns about debt, loans, rates, banks’ assets, and so on (e.g., that some governmental regulations or debt would negatively affect banking sector or financial industry). Possibly increased focus on the value of gold. Gold, and probably also silver, may go up.

JUL 20, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). Possibly, an important announcement related to international partnerships, long distance transportation/travel, immigration, import/export, etc. The announcement may not be very popular and/or it may involve “going back” (e.g., reverting to an old status, revisiting an old agreement, changing a law that was passed a while back, and so on).

JUL 21, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

Jul 21-22, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of oil, sugar, jewelry, gold, luxury items, as well as international travel/shipments (esp. some luxury travel, cruises, travel combined with entertainment, etc.). Some related commodities or products may become overvalued. We may hear about a deal, sale, or an agreement (possibly among international entities) involving one or more of these areas (e.g., related to oil production or cruise lines) — at this time, the value of such a deal may be overestimated; one of the parties may end up overpaying and not able to recoup the expenses. The deal reached at this time may be revised at a later point due to some legal complications, changes in laws, international partners bulking at some legal requirement, etc. Alternatively, an international deal, agreement or legal rule that was about to be implemented [especially related to international trade] may be postponed at this time (possibly until mid Dec 2021). There may also be focus on immigration in relation to the wealth of immigrants and financial resources available to them, financial contributions made by immigrants, and/or on international financial assistance. 

JUL 22, 2021 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (60%). Investors may be very excited today; there may be an expectation of some positive news, higher earnings, a new law, a new deal, a new international [trade] agreement, etc. There may be increased market volatility due to this expectation or on hopeful news. 

JUL 23, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (55%).  

Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of gold (and silver). Gold, and probably also silver, may drop.

USA: Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on retail sales, communication and transportation businesses, as well as financial issues and policies (incl. interest rates, debt, loans, budget deficit, currency value, embargoes, sanctions, etc.). We may hear about some unpopular policy being implemented, arguments over financial policies, arguments over Federal deficit, and/or heated discussion urging swift actions to address some financial issue. The focus may be on ensuring that the change enhances financial stability and security. One side may argue that the change is needed asap [to ensure safety and security], while the other side may argue that the change may put the security or safety at risk, that the change is somehow unsafe, or that the change shouldn’t be rushed.

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

Global/USA: Jul 27-30, 2021 — Possibly large stock market moves, esp. on Jul 28-29. The direction may be up. Regardless of the direction, there may be increased volatility with investors going overboard and some limits being exceeded. Also, at this time we can expect increased news about immigration, laws, international relations, and long distance travel/transportation. There may be some legal arguments, conflicts involving judges, or difficulties for travelers and companies involved in transporting goods over long distances. Travel and shipments may temporarily be disrupted (possibly due to weather or some legal decision). In terms of weather, this time may correspond to some extreme conditions (like a hot dry spell, excessive winds, volcanic eruption polluting air with ashes, etc.). The events above (e.g., being involved in a high-profile lawsuit or experiencing difficulties while traveling internationally) may involve a celebrity or a prominent person (e.g., royalty, actor, politician, etc.). Update (07.12.21): Another possibility is an accident (esp. a fire, explosion, or some attack) involving transportation (most likely cars or airplanes)— for ex., there may be a recall by some car manufacturer, problems with international travel destination, airplane manufacturer experiencing losses, etc. The value of the associated business may swing wildly — possibly a large drop followed by an up swing due to investors buying stock at a low price. Additionally or alternatively, the volatility may be due to a legal decision of some sort — possibly a previous decision or law being recalled, or a legal approval being unexpectedly postponed. Given transits to the U.S. natal chart at that time, the situation may be related to a U.S. business — in particular, an aerospace-related business, an airline, an airplane manufacturer, car manufacturer, a communication company, a major retailer, and/or a major on-line services provider. There may be some major event or an announcement in the related domains (also possibly related to education/teaching). This may range from an announcement about a new exciting aerospace project (e.g., a new satellite being launched), a technological breakthrough, to a power grid outage, cloud services provider outage, car or airplane manufacturer recall, an airline declaring bankruptcy, restraints on import/export of cars or some related parts, or some other similar event that may be exciting or shocking.

Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw).

General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.

July 12-18, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUL 12, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). Positive news about international agreements, long distance travel/shipments, import/export, immigration laws (or laws governing international travel), and communication/transportation companies in general.

Jul 9-14, 2021 — Increased news about sports, dance, female athletes, or some artistic or even romantic activity that combines beautiful body movement with high degree of athletic ability (gymnastics, ballet, trapeze, horse back riding?). Some prominent person [athlete, dancer, performer] may be featured prominently — possibly admired for their talent and being able to combine art and athletic ability, or, masculine and feminine qualities. In general — this is a good time to shop for or promote athletic gear that is also stylish, to open dance studio, attend a gymnastics class, etc. If a new project, service, or a product is introduced at this time in the related areas (e.g., a new athletic fashion line designed by a prominent star, makeup that stays put in the water or while exercising, dating service for famous people, dating service that combines entertainment with sports, an app that helps to exercise while having fun, etc.), it may be more popular and profitable than expected. Finally, there may be some news about a famous couple where one person is an entertainer (e.g., an actor) and the other, an athlete (e.g., a famous couple gets married or they have a baby). 

Jul 11-13, 2021 — Positive news for the communication, transportation, and publishing businesses (e.g., improved opportunities for expansion, new contracts, expansion to new locations, increased sales, etc.). We may also hear about increased international negotiations or agreements — these may go better than expected and/or proceed faster than expected (as in getting all green traffic lights and getting to the end point faster because there were no obstacles to slow down the movement). Lastly there may increased focus on immigration, international travel, education, and long distance transportation — the development will probably be positive (e.g., the travel/shipments have increased, international travel has become easier, education has become more accessible, travelers or students have more options to choose from, etc.). 

USA: Jul 12-13, 2021 — Positive news about workforce, healthcare, governmental contracts, and social services. Also, positive news about earnings and retail sales. 

JUL 13, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

JUL 14, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

USA: Jul 14-15, 2021 — Increased (and likely positive) news about international agreements, immigration, long distance travel and transportation, import/export, as well as education. Some agreements or contracts may be reached without too many disagreements, new shipping routes or locations may open up, new transportation modes may become available, new schooling options may be offered, etc. At least, new goals to improve these areas may be announced or new projects may begin. 

USA: Jul 14-16, 2021 — Increased (and likely positive) news about the retail sales, as well as communication and transportation industries (e.g., some project goes through, a contract is signed, a new route opens, a new leader is appointed, a budget is clarified, goals are set, etc.). Transportation may be over or under water, or in a coastal area. Another area that may see some positive news is related to agriculture, food production, restaurants, fishing, marine life, and/or water (e.g., more water becomes available for the crops, fishing businesses experience improved circumstances, restaurants or grocery stores see higher demand in general and especially on seafood, etc).

JUL 15, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). 

JUL 16, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Down influence is stronger in the afternoon. 

Jul 16-19, 2021 — There may be minor concerns about debt, loans, rates, banks’ assets, and so on (e.g., that some governmental regulations or debt would negatively affect banking sector or financial industry). Possibly increased focus on the value of gold. 

Jul 18-19, 2021 — Gold, and probably also silver, may go up.

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW Global: Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of gold (and silver). Gold, and probably also silver, may drop.

Updated  Global/USA: Jul 27-30, 2021 — Possibly large stock market moves, esp. on Jul 28-29. The direction may be up. Regardless of the direction, there may be increased volatility with investors going overboard and some limits being exceeded. Also, at this time we can expect increased news about immigration, laws, international relations, and long distance travel/transportation. There may be some legal arguments, conflicts involving judges, or difficulties for travelers and companies involved in transporting goods over long distances. Travel and shipments may temporarily be disrupted (possibly due to weather or some legal decision). In terms of weather, this time may correspond to some extreme conditions (like a hot dry spell, excessive winds, volcanic eruption polluting air with ashes, etc.). The events above (e.g., being involved in a high-profile lawsuit or experiencing difficulties while traveling internationally) may involve a celebrity or a prominent person (e.g., royalty, actor, politician, etc.). Update (07.12.21): Another possibility is an accident (esp. a fire, explosion, or some attack) involving transportation (most likely cars or airplanes)— for ex., there may be a recall by some car manufacturer, problems with international travel destination, airplane manufacturer experiencing losses, etc. The value of the associated business may swing wildly — possibly a large drop followed by an up swing due to investors buying stock at a low price. Additionally or alternatively, the volatility may be due to a legal decision of some sort — possibly a previous decision or law being recalled, or a legal approval being unexpectedly postponed. Given transits to the U.S. natal chart at that time, the situation may be related to a U.S. business — in particular, an aerospace-related business, an airline, an airplane manufacturer, car manufacturer, a communication company, a major retailer, and/or a major on-line services provider. There may be some major event or an announcement in the related domains (also possibly related to education/teaching). This may range from an announcement about a new exciting aerospace project (e.g., a new satellite being launched), a technological breakthrough, to a power grid outage, cloud services provider outage, car or airplane manufacturer recall, an airline declaring bankruptcy, restraints on import/export of cars or some related parts, or some other similar event that may be exciting or shocking.

Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) will be around Aug 9, and especially Dec 15, 2021. 

USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that will be prominent late March – early April 2021 (this is is true globally as well, but may affect the US more).

Global: Sep 1-3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. This may result in a large market drop on Sep 3, 2021.

NEW Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.).

Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) —  Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent. 

Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.

China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods). 

NEW Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.

USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed. 

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022. In late June through July 2021, Saturn Uranus square will be exacerbated by a stressful Mars transit and the three planets will form what’s know as a T-square. This may be a particularly difficult stressful time not favorable for risky activities (e.g., high speed race) — things may quickly get out-of-control or overheat more easily than normally. Jan 2021 (esp. the 24th) looks super tense as well — Mars will join Uranus and Jupiter will join Saturn, so Jupiter/Saturn will square Mars/Uranus conjunction — this is like pouring oil on the fire. Similar transits (also involving Taurus and Aquarius) occurred at the time of the worst fireworks disaster in all of history, the accident occurred in 2000 in Dutch city of Enschede.

Around June 14 – July 15, 2021 (esp. Jun 28 – July 9), Saturn square Uranus will be felt strongly. This may manifest as increased geopolitical tensions, protests, earthquakes, accidents, disasters, and market volatility (incl. flash crashes). This is a 3-part event (Saturn/Uranus will get closer to a square and separate 3 times) and the second of three total close square transits to occur. Earlier this February (Feb 7, 2021), during the first time when Saturn Uranus square became exact, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. 

Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on. 

USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021; and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes. 

At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability. 

Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).

OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.

2021

  • Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022. 

2025

Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).

Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.
