Jan 13 – 17, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Jan 13-14.

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12 and in particular on Jan 10 when we will have a Full Moon eclipse), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. On the positive side, we may hear about some important scientific discovery, archeological find, or a breakthrough in a difficult situation (e.g., saving someone who had become buried in a collapse or reaching an agreement [between governments] in a tense stand-off situation).

In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US). Also, natal charts of Japan and Tokyo (which happen to be earthquake-prone areas) will receive some stressful transits, so they are among areas sensitive to the upcoming super tense planetary transits this week.

Global: Focus on mining, coal, metals (esp. steel), minerals, excavated materials, large scale construction (esp. underground, in the mountains, mines, through tunnels, etc.), recycling business, trash removal business, waste management business, and so on. We may hear about new leaders, leaders being removed, end/beginning of new projects, lack/scarcity of some product/resource/equipment. Some projects may reach a critical point and either end, break, or require a major transformation (e.g., an old [nuclear] plant or a mine needs major repairs or is shut down).

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

USA: Jan 12 – 16, 2020 (esp. Jan 14-15) — Increased focus on the country’s goals, values, and vision for the future — in partnerships and negotiations, there will likely be increased preference to assert own goals and use a more aggressive/assertive tone (or rely on military strength). Also, increased news about sports (e.g., new programs, new achievements, new star athletes, etc.).

USA/OIL: Jan 13 – Feb 02, 2020 (esp. Jan 23-24) — Increased tensions in international negotiations or partnerships. Increased probability of bad/negative news for communication/transportation  businesses as well as businesses related to IT and high tech/gadgets (e.g., cars, media, airplanes, computers, telephones, etc.). This may involve financial losses, worse than expected earnings, as well as delays (esp. due to strikes, bad weather, and earthquakes), restrictions, communication issues, tense negotiations, difficulty with reaching agreements, lack of supplies/parts, stalled production, etc. These tensions may escalate and lead to additional problems in the subsequent weeks as described below. Globally, this may coincide with increased news about oil on JAN 26-28 (oil price may swing [probably up on Jan 27] and there will likely be a major market move [probably a drop on Jan 27-28 followed by an up move on Jan 28-29]).

USA/OIL: Feb 01 – 12, 2020 (esp. 3-5, 7, and 9) — Increased tensions may lead to hard negotiations that take a more aggressive tone at this time. There is an increased probability of escalation in military activities or of accidents/fires/explosions/etc. This may involve oil, navy, chemicals, poisons, etc. (attack on a ship? burning oil or chemicals? accident on an oil rig?).

———————

JAN 13, 2019 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

Jan 6-14 — Important announcement(s) about a well-known male or masculine leader (or leaders), possibly a governmental official or a corporate officer. The person may be old, conservative, tall, and/or work for an old established company (esp. related to steel, mining, oil, large scale construction, long distance shipping/travel, etc). The person may also be a professor, religious leader, lawyer, diplomat, or some other internationally known and well educated leader. The public’s reaction to the announcement may be negative and/or the individual’s popularity may decline. The public may react negatively because the person may be seen as too old, too rigid, cold, unemotional, etc.; or perhaps because the person dies, falls sick, suffers an accident while traveling, or is sentenced in the court; or because what happens to the person is seen as against the law or against some religious view. 

Jan 6-13 — Increased focus on communication and transportation industries, negotiations, and projects involving communications and entering into partnerships/agreements. On 6-10, we may hear about new leaders, new initiatives, new agreements, as well as increased governmental regulations and delays (due to extra checks, controls, regulations, etc.). On 11-13, we may hear about serious disruptions, accidents, arguments, difficult negotiations, and/or there may be stressful news that are bad for retail sales or commerce (e.g., embargo, stalled shipments, hacked websites, increased governmental regulations, etc.).

JAN 14, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

JAN 15, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (60-65%).

USA: Jan 15-16 — Stressful news related to IT, telecoms, high tech, airplanes, aerospace, rockets, power plants, electric cars, etc. There may be surprising news and unexpected service disruptions (e.g., a sudden attack involving rockets/airplanes, power outages, problems with electric cars or airplanes, social media site being down, etc.). At the same time, there may be positive news for the workforce, healthcare, social services, and programs that involve helping the needy (e.g., some workers’s conditions are improved, jobless rate is down, healthcare costs go down, etc.). There may also be news about increased profits from the live stock or veterinary products that improve animals’ health). 

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

JAN 17, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Minor stressful news related to IT, telecoms, high tech, airplanes, aerospace, rockets, power plants, electric cars, AI projects, banks/finance, fintech, and cryptocurrencies. There may be surprising events, service disruptions, disagreements among partners, power loss, sudden plan changes, accidents due to windy weather, and communication problems. 

USA: Jan 17-18 — Increased flocs on banks/finance, agencies involved in spying/crime investigations, mining/coal, nuclear power, and/or recycling/waste management — some project/goals may be clarified or there may be a change in leadership. The entity or entities involved will likely be old, well established, and well-connected to the government. 

China: Jan 17 — May hear an announcement about new goals, projects, agreements, or vision for the country. These will probably be related to IT, AI, high tech, telecoms, aerospace, power pants, electric cars, etc. 

———————

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may unfold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

Jan 6 – 10, 2020: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Jan 9-10.

Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12 and in particular on Jan 10 when we will have a Full Moon eclipse), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on  legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. On the positive side, we may hear about some important scientific discovery, archeological find, or a breakthrough in a difficult situation (e.g., saving someone who had become buried in a collapse or reaching an agreement [between governments] in a tense stand-off situation).

In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US). Also, natal charts of Japan and Tokyo (which happen to be earthquake-prone areas) will receive some stressful transits, so they are among areas sensitive to the upcoming super tense planetary transits this week.

———————

JAN 06, 2019 (MON): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). 

Jan 6-13 — Important announcement(s) about a well-known male or masculine leader (or leaders), possibly a governmental official or a corporate officer. The person may be old, conservative, tall, and/or work for an old established company (esp. related to steel, mining, oil, large scale construction, long distance shipping/travel, etc). The person may also be a professor, religious leader, lawyer, diplomat, or some other internationally known and well educated leader. The public’s reaction to the announcement may be negative and/or the individual’s popularity may decline. The public may react negatively because the person may be seen as too old, too rigid, cold, unemotional, etc.; or perhaps because the person dies, falls sick, suffers an accident while traveling, or is sentenced in the court; or because what happens to the person is seen as against the law or against some religious view. 

Jan 6-13 — Increased focus on communication and transportation industries, negotiations, and projects involving communications and entering into partnerships/agreements. On 6-10, we may hear about new leaders, new initiatives, new agreements, as well as increased governmental regulations and delays (due to extra checks, controls, regulations, etc.). On 11-13, we may hear about serious disruptions, accidents, arguments, difficult negotiations, and/or there may be stressful news that are bad for retail sales or commerce (e.g., embargo, stalled shipments, hacked websites, increased governmental regulations, etc.).

USA: Increased news or communications by or about leaders and international relations, laws, relations, etc. A leader may communicate more than usual or their communication may be more in focus than usual. Communication may relate to topics involving land, food industry, homeland security, banks, financial security, and/or protection of women and children. Communication or agreement may be criticized as being too cold and rational, serving governments and corporations, and lacking warmth and care or ignoring the safety [of land, women/children, financial institutions, etc.]. 

JAN 07, 2019 (TUE): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

JAN 08, 2019 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (60%).

JAN 09, 2019 (TH): Very Strong influence; market may go down (70%). Greater than usual market moves are likely, regardless of the direction. Several stressful transits. High probability of intensified seismic activity, terrorist attacks, removal of important leaders, disasters, accidents, explosions, protests, violence, etc. 

Jan 9-10 — Some major public event (or an event that affects large numbers of people) may take place at this time. The events will likely affect large numbers of people internationally and/or will involve international travel/shipments, religion, some important person’s legal status, and laws. This is also a beginning of multiple cycles of various duration (including a 6 mo short-term and about 37 yrs long-term).

JAN 10, 2019 (FR): Very Strong influence; market may go down (70%). Greater than usual market moves are likely, regardless of the direction. 

Full Moon eclipse with several stressful transits. High probability of intensified seismic activity, terrorist attacks, removal of important leaders, disasters, accidents, explosions, protests, violence, etc. The effect of the eclipse will last about 6mo. There will likely be follow up flare ups or consequences of the current events in the upcoming months (esp. late Feb – Mar). Haven’t had a chance to look at too many countries’ charts, but I noticed that natal charts of Japan and Tokyo will be affected by the stressful transits during and soon following the eclipse. This could point to heightened probability of a major quake there this week and/or in the next 6mo or so (esp. end of Feb to early Apr). 

———————

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

Dec 30 – Jan 3 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Video with 2020 predictions on my YouTube channel. Happy New Year! 😁🎉

Global: In 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them].

The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Jan 2-3.

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

———————

DEC 30, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Important announcement about a well-known male leader, possibly a governmental official or a corporate officer. The person may be old, conservative, tall, and/or work for an old established company (esp. related to steel, mining, oil, large scale construction, etc). The public’s reaction to the announcement may be negative and the individual’s popularity may decline (possibly they may be sen as too old, too rigid, cold, unemotional, etc.). Other areas they may see announcements include gold value, solar power, and entertainment industry — there may be minor negative news where these areas may be seen as less attractive or less easily available than usual. 

USA: Possibly slightly negative news about healthcare, social services and workforce. There may be agreements that aren’t progressing as smoothly as desired, or, negotiations (e.g., about healthcare or minimum wage) that aren’t reaching a deal due to miscommunication or differences in values. 

DEC 31, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

JAN 01, 2019 (WED): US markets closed.

Jan 1-3 — Increased news days. Focus on international deals and agreements. A major deal or law may be announced. Alternatively, a major announcement at an international gathering or involving an international community, university professors, lawyers, shipment companies, etc. Generally, increased news about higher education, lawyers, judges, immigration, long distance travel and transportation, as well as communication companies and services (e.g., cars, news outlets, social media, planes, etc.).  We may hear about increase in new offerings, new gadgets, new leaders, new important research projects (esp. related to mining, metals, or minerals), expansion overseas, more outlets, increased sales, more travel destinations, more international partners, etc. The announcement may be seen as unpopular or coming at a bad time. This could be because it has too much or too little detail, or, it involves a change in initial objective (e.g., research finds the opposite of the expected outcome), or, the announcement omits some important detail/group/topic. 

On Jan 1-2, the hype may be about the overall agreement or larger picture, whereas on Jan 3, the focus may shift more to the details, actual findings, and fine print. Also, on Jan 1-2, there may be focus on legal issues and international support, whereas on the 3rd, the focus may shift to how to deliver on the promises (e.g., how to finalize the sales, how to transport the goods, how to communicate, how to keep track of the progress, etc.).

USA: Jan 1-3 — Focus on international agreements, legal issues (incl. legalizing international deals), immigration, new goals and projects that are meant to benefit the country, expansion overseas, higher education, and long distance travel and transportation. The agreements reached at this time may be seen as somewhat imbalanced in that they may not fully support the country’s goals and/or vision of international expansion. The agreements or deals may be seen as overpromising something, being too optimistic, or overextending in the wrong direction. The issue could be that the agreement doesn’t specify all the details, or, that the details are specified but the fine print, if read carefully, tones down the general upbeat announcement.  

China: Jan 1-3  (esp. morning on the 3rd [New York time])— Focus on international agreements, partnerships, and deals. The overall mood about the agreement should be very optimistic, even excessively so. The deal may be seen as benefiting the country in some way that isn’t entirely clear or direct — more so by alleviating issues, healing “old wounds,” and removing old obstacles rather than introducing completely new opportunities. There may be excessive optimism and/or concerns about the optimism and high hopes obscuring the details and specifics. The terms of the deal may also be seen as not quite aligned with how the country normally prefers to deal with partners (as per its natal astro chart) — in a more openly powerful way (with China taking the lead). The objective of the agreement may be seen as at odds with what China prefers to invest in or as causing issues in the areas related to taxes, tariffs, insurance, hidden fees, hidden manipulations, etc. The agreements made at this time should ultimately be beneficial [long term] for restructuring and transformation of the areas related to healthcare, oil, navy, and pharmaceuticals. 

JAN 02, 2019 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may go up (65%). 

JAN 03, 2019 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may go up (65%).

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

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

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

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

Dec 23 – 27, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

Global: In 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Dec 26-27.

USA: This week (esp. Dec 26-27) — Focus on international agreements, laws, long distance transportation/travel, immigration, tariffs, etc. We may hear about important agreements being signed, laws passed, and/or expansion or increased spending in the areas above. Some new vision may be discussed that involves international expansion, international partnerships, immigration, import/export, tariffs, long distance travel, and higher education (incl. visas for international students etc.). International agreements or expansion that takes place at this time may reach farther or involve more areas than expected. However, some promises [in the agreements] may be given too quickly and it may not be possible to fulfill the obligations on time or fully. There may also be imbalance in international agreements due to overlooking finer details — when the fine print is finally read, excessive promises or overly optimistic timelines will need to be readjusted. Agreements will probably be related to farming, food production, real estate, banks, as well as steel, mining, coal, large scale engineering projects, and construction.

China: This week (esp. Dec 27) —  Ongoing focus on healthcare, oil, navy, chemicals, biotech, water, pollution, etc. — these areas are set to undergo a major transformation and see some significant developments in 2018-2020 (e.g., major infrastructure or governance changes, large scale accidents, major reforms/innovation, major expansion, and so on). The influence will particularly increase around Dec 20, 2019 – Jan 20, 2020 (esp. Jan 2-13) —  at that time, we may hear about important discoveries (e.g., something is excavated, brought to the surface from beneath the water, or revealed), huge projects aimed at expanding the country’s power in the areas above (e.g., navy, oil, biotech, chemicals, etc.), earthquakes, or accidents that lead to massive pollution. 

China: This week (esp. Dec 23-24) —  Increased focus on stock market (greater volatility than usual; possibly swings up), sports, movies, and areas related to IT, telecoms, high tech, AI, robotics, electricity, aerospace, etc — new futuristic projects or expansion into new areas may be announced. Also, surprises in international agreements or projects related to long distance transportation/shipments. Surprises may be positive (e.g., projects are expanded beyond previous expectations), or negative (e.g., some large project draws too much power or expands beyond what can be effectively managed [e.g., takes too much land, affects nature, creates ethical dilemmas, etc.]).

———————

DEC 23, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). Possibly, positive news (e.g., earnings up, new popular leader appointed, restructuring paid off, etc.) for banks and financial institutions. 

USA: Dec 23-24 — Increased focus on earnings, profit, fashion, sugar, precious stones/jewelry, as well as healthcare, social care, workforce, and service industries. Some related issue (minimal wage?) may be brought up in order to define the problem, clarify demands, or identify the obstacles. The clarification may involve what is not wanted or some option may be rejected at this time.

DEC 24, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, wet weather, beverages, etc. There may be increased news about disruptions in shipping, long distance transportation, confusion or deception about legal matters/lawyers, or legal problems due to some international connection.

DEC 25, 2019 (WED): US markets closed; holiday.

DEC 26, 2019 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may go up (65%). 

Dec 26-27 — Probably days filled with optimism about international agreements, decisions about tariffs, import/export, restructuring at the governmental level and/or agreements at the level of large established corporations. The agreements or deals may involve large scale or long term projects related to construction, steel, land cultivation, farming, mining, coal, shipment, or engineering (e.g., railways, bridges, tunnels, pipes, roads, manufacturing plants, preservation or development of farmlands, and so on). 

DEC 27, 2019 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may go up (65%).

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

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

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

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

Dec 16 – 20, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

Global: In 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

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

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

“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level.

Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.” 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Dec 19-22.

Global: Dec 8-22, 2019 — Favorable time for businesses and projects related to IT, aerospace, electric power, high tech, innovation, telecoms, etc. They may receive a substantial boost through governmental support, investments, removal of legal limitations/controls, and growth overseas. Also, time when there may be accelerated expansion in the areas related to finance, banks, cryptocurrencies, and high tech. The expansion may be due to some favorable governmental decisions or removal of legal obstacles. We may hear about some governmental support for the banks (to improve cash flow) and/or about a long-term restructuring involving financial institutions to help banks/financial institutions be more tech savvy, use AI, accept cryptocurrencies, etc.

USA: This week — Focus on finance, earnings, international agreements, as well as healthcare, social services, workforce, and governmental contracts. We may hear about important agreements being signed, laws passed, and/or expansion or increased spending in the areas above. Some new vision may be discussed that involves international expansion, international partnerships, immigration, import/export, tariffs, long distance travel, and higher education (incl. visas for international students etc.).

China: This week (esp. Dec 18) — Focus on earnings, profit, expenses, international laws and policies, import/export, tariffs, long distance travel, and higher education. Some decisive actions may be taken to improve these areas or to cut losses; these actions may involve financial power plays, currency manipulation, and using debt (e.g., to finance something or as a playing card). Also, ongoing focus on healthcare, oil, navy, chemicals, biotech, water, pollution, etc. — these areas are set to undergo a major transformation and see some significant developments in 2018-2020 (e.g., major infrastructure or governance changes, large scale accidents, major reforms/innovation, major expansion, and so on); the influence will particularly increase around Dec 20, 2019 – Jan 20, 2020. 

———————

DEC 16, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

Dec 16-18 — Positive news for military, sports, any legal/international agreements that have been pending and awaiting some decision, fintech, IT, telecoms, electric power companies, cryptocurrencies, and any products/services that rely on decentralized architecture.

DEC 17, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%).

DEC 18, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

DEC 19, 2019 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55%). Down influence is stronger at the end of the day. There may be a market direction reversal on Dec 19-20 from Dec 18-19. 

Dec 19-20 — Increased news about lies, confusion, omissions, hidden facts, illegal activities, confusion about international agreement terms, etc. Also, increased news about oil, chemicals, communication/transportation, navy, water, floods, excessively wet weather, beverages, religion, pollution, poisons, etc. The news may be confusing, involve some unclear communication, or be about some problems and delays (e.g., foggy weather causes a major transportation accident, oil shipment is delayed due to international laws or bad weather, international agreement can’t be legalized due to missing info, some drug’s approval is delayed, sales of beverages/medicines that have some addictive properties are down or these substances receive negative publicity, etc.).

DEC 20, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (55%).  

Dec 20-22 (esp. the 21st) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, Forex (esp. EUR-USD value fluctuations), and increased volatility or sudden changes in earnings or value of financial products. Also, possibly intermittent issues with power supply or connectivity of services or sites through which users interact socially (esp. gaming or exchanging pictures) or access financial data or money.

———————

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

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

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

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

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

Dec 9 – 13, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

Global: In 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance.

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

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

Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp.

DEC 9, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Down influence is stronger in the afternoon.

Dec 9-14 — Increased news about lies, lack of clarity, cheating, drugs, healthcare, pharma, oil, gas, chemicals, navy, wet weather, beverages, etc. There may be concerns about performance of the related business, problems with shipments, problems with laws, or concerns about a leader  (e.g., a leader is caught lying or is experiencing health issues, esp. related to poisoning). There may also be increased news about weapons and chemicals, weapons and navy, bioweapons, fighting/arguing about oil, fires at chemical or petroleum processing plants, infectious diseases, etc. The news may be that the distribution of such weapons has become easier, or, there is more fighting over oil, or, some large shipment of weapons over water has departed/reached destination, or, some large deposit of oil or gas has been discovered, or, a large quantity of oil or gas has exploded or was set on fire, etc. Dec 12-13 are key dates of some important events and probably greater than average market moves.

DEC 10, 2019 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%).

Dec 10-14, 2019 — Increased focus on finance, earnings (probably lower than expected), cash availability, and rates. There may be concerns about the cash flow, followed by some decision where banks receive support from the government, some favorable legal change is made, or some international entities (governments or large corporations) strike a large deal. Governmental support of the banks may be seen as excessive or lacking appropriate limits. Generally, there may be increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. Alternatively or additionally, there may be increased news about cryptocurrencies — their value or use (esp. internationally) may increase/expand. Also, increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. 

DEC 11, 2019 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). Down influence is stronger in the afternoon. Larger than average market move regardless of the direction. Increased focus on retail sales, shipments, legal issues, immigration, and agreements. 

DEC 12, 2019 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (60%). Larger than average market move regardless of the direction.

DEC 13, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may go up (55%).  Larger than average market move regardless of the direction.

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

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

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

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

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

Dec 2 – 6, 2019: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

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

Global: In 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the slowly unfolding Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shaking” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

ALL WEEK: 

Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, geopolitical changes, old/established governmental or corporate leaders quitting/dying, changes in leadership of governments or large corporations, or of violent/terrorist attacks. As last week, this week, there may be increased news about governmental/corporate leaders being ousted or attacked, retiring, dying or losing their power in some way. Additionally, this week there is an increased probability of important events, announcements, or accidents involving mining, coal, steel, minerals, tunnels, bridges, old buildings in general, earthquakes, mudslides, etc. This week, peak days for this influence are Dec 6-7.

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

———————

DEC 2, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60%). Pre-open or in the early am, there may be an announcement related to finance, earnings, rates, or savings. The announcement may have to do with governmental policies or controls on finance/cash. The decision or events may facilitate investments or drive individuals to take on more loans (e.g., by making it easier to get credit). Public’s perception of the decision or the events may be negative or this may be an unpopular move (e.g., because government imposes stricter control, earnings are reduced, availability of cash is limited, cash flow slows down, etc.). The situation may continue on Tue and then be re-reviewed or adjusted on Wed.

DEC 3, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60%).

DEC 4, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Probably, a reversal in the direction from Tue, possibly due to a reversal in or a correction related to the announcement on Mon (regarding governmental controls and/or finance or earnings). Also, increased news about lies, lack of clarity, cheating, drugs, healthcare, pharma, oil, gas, chemicals, navy, wet weather, beverages, etc. Issues related to these areas may be initially introduced today — perhaps, there is some concern about stability, reliability, or frequent unnecessary changes (to try to match public opinion/preferences). These minor concerns may grow into larger issues by the end of the week, esp. on Fr and Sat (e.g., some chemical cannot be shipped due to legal problems or ship breaking down, some lie is suspected on Wed but the story erupts on Fr/Sat). 

DEC 5, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). 

DEC 6, 2019 (FR): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

Dec 6-7 — Increased news about lies, lack of clarity, cheating, drugs, healthcare, pharma, oil, gas, chemicals, navy, wet weather, beverages, etc. There may be concerns about performance of the related business, problems with shipments, problems with laws, or concerns about a leader  (e.g., a leader is caught lying or is experiencing health issues, esp. related to poisoning). These areas will remain in focus or gain even greater attention next week (esp. Dec 11-14 with Dec 12-13 being key dates of some important events and probably greater than average market moves).

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

Global: Dec 10-14, 2019 — Increased focus on finance, cash availability, and rates. There may be concerns about the cash flow, followed by some decision where banks receive support from the government, some favorable legal change is made, or some international entities (governments or large corporations) strike a large deal. Governmental support of the banks may be seen as excessive or lacking appropriate limits. Generally, there may be increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans. Alternatively or additionally, there may be increased news about cryptocurrencies — their value or use (esp. internationally) may increase/expand. Also, increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. On Dec 10-14, 2019 — Increased probability of significant  market moves (possibly down on Dec 10-11, and 14 and up on the 13th).

UPDATED Global: Dec 8-22, 2019 — Favorable time for businesses and projects related to IT, aerospace, electric power, high tech, innovation, telecoms, etc. They may receive a substantial boost through governmental support, investments, removal of legal limitations/controls, and growth overseas. Also, time when there may be accelerated expansion in the areas related to finance, banks, cryptocurrencies, and high tech. The expansion may be due to some favorable governmental decisions or removal of legal obstacles. 

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

Global: Mar 22-31, 2020  (+- several days; esp. Mar 22 and 31)  — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, cyberattacks, etc. as well as aerospace, electricity/power supply, IT, telecoms, networks, etc.). Also, increased geopolitical tensions and military threats, posturing, or attacks — this may be related to developments in June 2019 (US-Iran tensions) and upcoming developments in late Oct-early Nov 2019 (TBD; probably US-Iran tensions again). The situation may infold as overt military tensions accompanied by covert secretive operations, such as cyber attacks (esp. around Mar 22), followed by more attacks/problems affecting airplanes, drones, space-related objects, or networks/internet or other grids (electric grids?) around the end of Mar. Lastly, this may be a tense time for leaders of governments and large corporations as they may be displaced, removed, etc.

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

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

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

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