LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

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

———————

DAILY:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

ALL WEEK: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2021

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

2022

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

2025

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

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

July 19-25, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

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

———————

DAILY:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALL WEEK: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2021

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

2022

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

2025

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

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

July 12-18, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

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

———————

DAILY:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ALL WEEK: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2021

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

2022

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

2025

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

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

Suez Canal Obstructions and Closures — Astrology patterns

A quick analysis of the astro charts for the Suez Canal obstructions and closures (and associated efforts to clear up the obstacles). [Will add charts and links to Wikipedia for more info later on.]

Suez Canal Obstruction in 2021

At the time of the 6-day event (Mar 23-29, 2021), Mars was conjunct the North Node in Gemini, while Mercury in Pisces squared both Nodes (and Mars). The Nodes were in 11-12 degrees of Gem/Sag (focus on international travel/commerce). In essence, there was  a t-square involving Moon Nodes in Gem/Sag, Mars, and Mercury. This was a stressful combination indicative of problems with international travel/trade and maritime navigation.

Suez Canal closure in 1956 after a British-French-Israeli invasion

Back in October 1956, during the Suez Crisis, the canal was similarly closed when Saturn (blockage) conjoined the North Node in Sagittarius. 

Suez Canal 8-year closure in 1967 to 1975 after the Arab–Israeli Six-Day War

Suez canal has also been closed for 8 years from 1967 to 1975. Following the Yom Kippur War between Egypt and Israel in 1973, an international agreement was reached to provide measures to reopen the Suez Canal after its closure during the 1967 Six-Day War. The Suez Canal Clearance Operation was completed on Dec 19, 1974 just as Neptune and Mars conjoined the South Node at 10 degrees of Sagittarius, while being squared by Jupiter in 11 degree of Pisces. [Jupiter rules Sagittarius and is associated with international travel; Pisces is a water sign associated with maritime travel]. So at that time, there again was a t-square at virtually the same degrees of Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces as during the 2021 event. Both times, Mars conjuncted a Moon Node (accidents, fighting, dangerous or intense activities that affect large groups of people). And both times, the activities involved major efforts to clear the canal from obstructions.

Suez Canal Short-term Obstructions in 2004, 2006, 2017, and 2018

Back in November 2004, there was another three-day canal closure after a Russian oil tanker ran aground. Tense transits at the time were Mars square Saturn (Libra to Cancer) = stress, breakdowns, loss of balance; and Mercury square Uranus (Sagittarius to Pisces; 2-3rd degrees) = sudden problems with maritime travel, miscommunication, accidents, sudden power loss, windy conditions. 

On February 10 2006, a Hong Kong-flagged Okal King Dor cargo ship blocked the Suez Canal for 8 hours. At that time, Mercury and Uranus were widely conjunct in Pisces (Mercury was at the same 2 degrees as Uranus was in 2004 when the Russian oil tanker ran aground).

Finally, on Jun 6 2018, a Mega container ship OOCL JAPAN suffered steering failure in Suez Canal. [Mars precisely conjunct South Node in Aquarius; Mercury-Sun tightly conjunct in Gemini in exact square to a tight Neptune-Moon conjunction in Pisces). The  same ship previously ran aground in the canal on Oct 18 2017. [Mercury tightly conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio; Sun in Libra in opposition to Uranus in Aries; Virgo Mars in a wide square to Saturn in Sagittarius.] Both times, the ship was freed within a few hours.

Summary

In all, it looks like Suez canal obstructions and clean up efforts often involve conjunctions of Mars to Moon Nodes (aka Rahu and Ketu) as well as difficult transits of Mercury to Neptune, Uranus, or Mars (especially in Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces).

July 5-11, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (updated; moved 2025-2035 predictions there). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUL 05, 2021 (MON): N/A; U.S. Holiday, markets closed.

Jun 28 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jun 29 through Jul 6) — Increased risk of flash crashes in the stock market. At a minimum, increased market volatility. The most affected sectors will probably include (A) finance, currencies, crypto (some asset may quickly lose a lot of value but then rapidly rebound or vice versa, sharply gain and then drop); (B) communication/transportation (esp. airplanes, electric cars, and transportation of oil/gas/chemicals or maritime transportation); and (C) metals (possible concerns about shortages, unstable conditions, supply chain disruptions, old logistics breaking, etc.). Weather-wise, there is an increased risk of turbulent events with a sudden onset. These may involve excessive wind, large electric discharge, and/or heat (e.g., tornadoes, fires, lightening storms, etc.). Weather events may be accompanied by power outages or some other calamities. 

Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go. 

Some specific manifestation of similar transits in the past included major earthquakes, avalanches, rockslides, airplane crashes (e.g., the downing of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3 1988), air show disasters, large car pile-ups (100+ cars) due to bad road conditions, car accidents involving famous people [and having consequences for large groups of people who relied on that famous person being in good health], accidents involving improper use of chemicals leading to explosion/fire, gas or oil pipe leaks leading to explosion/fire, oil rig disasters (e.g., the Piper Alpha oil rig explosion on July 6 1988, one of the worst offshore industry’s disasters in history), mishandling of fireworks leading to explosion/fire, major flooding resulting from dam failure (so not just due to rain, but specifically due to a structural collapse), bacterial contamination of municipal water, as well as bad weather in general (unseasonably hot or cold, dry or wet). In terms of the stock market, there have been flash crashes and increased market volatility. Lastly, there have been increased protests and news about military escalations (e.g., deployment of troops to deal with some situation).

Jun 30 – Jul 6, 2021 — Increased news involving oil, gas, chemicals, water, beverages, navy, maritime transport, pharma, pollution, religion, drugs, movies, music, etc. The news may be stressful and involve problems with maritime transportation, miscommunication, deceptive communication, confused actions (e.g., a ship runs aground in a fog), oil spills, water pollution, and so on. Agreements, deals, reports, or contracts that are finalized at this time may be missing data or contain more errors than usual. It may be difficult to reach an agreement at this time or to obtain a detailed report — some info may not be available, missing, or obscured. More generally, not an auspicious time for communication and transportation businesses — there may be confusing reports, sales may be down, shipments or travel may be delayed, etc.

USA: Jul 2-5, 2021 — Possible issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, movies/entertainment industry, water, water pollution, sports, military, navy, and maritime transport. We may hear about a sale, deal, agreement, communication or transportation project, but the exact details may be vague or the conditions may be unclear. The uncertainty may contribute to a down move in the market on Fr-Mon (July 2-5). 

USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.

China: Jul 2-11, 2021 — Potentially difficult and tense time. Increased news about the military, weapons, arguments with partners, conflict escalations, athletic achievements, sports records broken, as well as incidents/accidents/explosions/fires/etc. Manifestations can range from breaking records in sports competitions to escalating threats and militarized conflicts. Not a good time for peaceful negotiations; agreements will likely not go well or will require a saintly amount of patience. Previous agreements/deals may be broken. Finally, there may be problems related to communication/transportation (negotiations broken off, fighting with partners, problems with car safety, issues with travel due to dangerous circumstances such as fires). If a deal is being negotiated at this time, the initial stand-off may end up being resolved by July 9-11, when parties come to an agreement about the price/value. Even if an agreement is reached, it may still be done under coercion, power play, manipulation, blackmail, etc. (e.g., a large some of money is promised/paid to secure a deal). Alternatively, the deal itself may have to do with a weapons sale or a sale of some military assets; in this case, there may be no manipulation. 

JUL 06, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (65%). Concerns about cash availability, prices, and financial losses. The value of businesses or products related to IT, airlines, high tech, electric cars, etc. may go down or be perceived lower than anticipated. There may be some disappointing news related to those areas where the anticipated value “isn’t there” or the profits are lower than expected. 

Jul 6-7, 2021 — Delays or difficulties in sending money or transferring funds. This may be due to a service outage, a network being down, or slow data transmission.

JUL 07, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

Jul 7-9, 2021 — Unexpected events, volatility, or surprising exciting developments related to banks, Forex (esp. EUR/USD), currencies, crypto, rates, credit availability, earnings, etc. Some [digital] asset may sharply gain in value and equally sharply drop. There may also be service outages (e.g., for a trading platform) that could delay trading and result in unexpected consequences. Finally, excessive volatility may result in stricter regulations or some limits being triggered. The reasons for volatility may be related to the asset(s) being digital (not backed by physical assets) or unstable. Some asset may be overhyped, attract attention short-term, but not live up to the expectations. Concerns about the value of some “digital” asset may lead some investors to turn to gold; however, this too may be a short-lived spike of interest.

JUL 08, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

JUL 09, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

Jul 9-12, 2021 — Increased news about sports, dance, female athletes, or some artistic activity that combines beautiful body movement with high degree of athletic ability (gymnastics, ballet?). Some prominent person [athlete, dancer, performer] may be featured prominently — possibly admired for their talent and being able to combine art and athletic ability , or, masculine and feminine qualities. In general — this is a good time to shop for or promote athletic gear that is also stylish, to open dance studio, attend a gymnastics class, etc.

Jul 12, 2021 (MON) — Looks like an up day with positive news about international agreements, long distance travel/shipments, import/export, immigration laws (or laws governing international travel), and communication/transportation companies in general.

———————

>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from last week; moved 2025-2035 predictions to the LONG-TERM ASTROLOGY FORECAST):

Global: Jul 18-19, 2021 — Gold and likely silver may go up.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

———————

ALL WEEK: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2021

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

2022

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

2025

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

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

June 28 – July 4, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions. New astrology predictions for 2025-2035.

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2026, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

NEW – See “Glance Ahead” section below for new 2025 -2035 predictions. Will move those to the Long Term Astrology Forecast post next week. 

———————

DAILY:

JUN 28, 2021 (MON): Medium-Strong influence; market may go up (55%). 

Jun 28 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jun 29 through Jul 6) — Increased risk of flash crashes in the stock market. At a minimum, increased market volatility. The most affected sectors will probably include (A) finance, currencies, crypto (some asset may quickly lose a lot of value but then rapidly rebound or vice versa, sharply gain and then drop); (B) communication/transportation (esp. airplanes, electric cars, and transportation of oil/gas/chemicals or maritime transportation); and (C) metals (possible concerns about shortages, unstable conditions, supply chain disruptions, old logistics breaking, etc.). Weather-wise, there is an increased risk of turbulent events with a sudden onset. These may involve excessive wind, large electric discharge, and/or heat (e.g., tornadoes, fires, lightening storms, etc.). Weather events may be accompanied by power outages or some other calamities. 

JUN 29, 2021 (TUE): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55-60%). 

Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go. 

Some specific manifestation of similar transits in the past included major earthquakes, avalanches, rockslides, airplane crashes (e.g., the downing of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3 1988), air show disasters, large car pile-ups (100+ cars) due to bad road conditions, car accidents involving famous people [and having consequences for large groups of people who relied on that famous person being in good health], accidents involving improper use of chemicals leading to explosion/fire, gas or oil pipe leaks leading to explosion/fire, oil rig disasters (e.g., the Piper Alpha oil rig explosion on July 6 1988, one of the worst offshore industry’s disasters in history), mishandling of fireworks leading to explosion/fire, major flooding resulting from dam failure (so not just due to rain, but specifically due to a structural collapse), bacterial contamination of municipal water, as well as bad weather in general (unseasonably hot or cold, dry or wet). In terms of the stock market, there have been flash crashes and increased market volatility. Lastly, there have been increased protests and news about military escalations (e.g., deployment of troops to deal with some situation).

JUN 30, 2021 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (60-65%). 

Jun 30 – Jul 6, 2021 — Increased news involving oil, gas, chemicals, water, beverages, navy, maritime transport, pharma, pollution, religion, drugs, movies, music, etc. The news may be stressful and involve problems with maritime transportation, miscommunication, deceptive communication, confused actions (e.g., a ship runs aground in a fog), oil spills, water pollution, and so on. Agreements, deals, reports, or contracts that are finalized at this time may be missing data or contain more errors than usual. It may be difficult to reach an agreement at this time or to obtain a detailed report — some info may not be available, missing, or obscured. More generally, not an auspicious time for communication and transportation businesses — there may be confusing reports, sales may be down, shipments or travel may be delayed, etc.

JUL 01, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). 

JUL 02, 2021 (FR): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). 

USA: Jul 2-5, 2021 — Possible issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, movies/entertainment industry, water, water pollution, sports, military, navy, and maritime transport. We may hear about a sale, deal, agreement, communication or transportation project, but the exact details may be vague or the conditions may be unclear. The uncertainty may contribute to a down move in the market on Fr-Mon (July 2-5). 

China: Jul 2-11, 2021 — Potentially difficult and tense time. Increased news about the military, weapons, arguments with partners, conflict escalations, athletic achievements, sports records broken, as well as incidents/accidents/explosions/fires/etc. Manifestations can range from breaking records in sports competitions to escalating threats and militarized conflicts. Not a good time for peaceful negotiations; agreements will likely not go well or will require a saintly amount of patience. Previous agreements/deals may be broken. Finally, there may be problems related to communication/transportation (negotiations broken off, fighting with partners, problems with car safety, issues with travel due to dangerous circumstances such as fires).

Mon-Tue (JUL 5-6, 2021) look like down days at this time, especially Monday, July 5.

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW Global: Jul 18-19, 2021 — Gold and likely silver may go up.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 (esp. May-Sep, 2025 and Jan-Mar, 2026) may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc. Update [05.23.21]: Other manifestations may include major maritime disasters, massive oil spills, breakdowns of infrastructure necessary to support related industries (e.g., oil, gas, water, pharma, etc.) and generally stressful events affecting the value and availability of oil, gas, chemicals, clean water, etc. There may be shortages and/or rationing of the related products. This will likely be a major reversal point for oil and gas prices (probably a TOP). For other related products, such as clean water or some drug or chemical, this too can be a time of massive price peaks or drops. Lastly there may be some concerns related to religious or faith-based groups (e.g., cults) — there may be concerns about oppression (of the members and by the members) or inappropriate activities. Update [05.31.21]: An oil spill that may occur at this time (esp. around Aug 9, 2025) could be significant — for example, Exxon Valdez spill also occurred under the Saturn Neptune conjunction. As such, it would likely have important consequences for the energy industry. This possibility is supported by the fact that both planets will switch signs in 2025 from the watery Pisces, friendly to Neptune, to the fiery Aries ruled by Mars, “god of war.” Under the influence of the new sign, the view of the Neptunian products (e.g., oil, navy, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, movies, water, fish, etc.) may shift from “we have a lot of it and it’s easy to obtain” to one or more of the following: “We have so much of it that we need to impose restrictions on production,” “we don’t have enough and the supply is drying up,”  and/or “the price is climbing too high, so we need to set ceiling limits on the price.” With possible concerns about the availability of clean water, there may be a big push for industrial-scale projects on efficient waste water treatment and water recycling. There will likely be increased efforts to stop the spread of some contamination, disease, etc. and to minimize water pollution. More generally, there may be major changes in Neptunian domains, incl. oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, water, etc. — from the abundance and/or high prices to shortages, losses, and lowering the prices through restrictions. 

Global: Feb 1, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, floods, oil spills, gas leaks, industrial disasters, prison breaks, problems with medical research facilities, and/or healthcare-related problems (e.g., pandemic or problems with hospitals or pharmaceuticals). The value of oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, clean water, some beverage, etc. may be in focus — some extreme price point may be reached (e.g., a major TOP in the value of oil or some drug). There may be increased concerns about [water] pollution, poisons, contamination, infestation, as well as deceptive activities, hacking, lies, etc. Additional affected areas could be beverages, movie theaters, concert halls, hospitals, etc. There may also be breakthroughs or major achievements or discoveries in those areas, such as a miracle drug, chemical with amazing properties, super-popular song/movie/beverage, water with special properties, underwater tunnel that everyone wants to visit, etc.

Global: Apr 11 and 21, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, earthquakes, industrial disasters, and/or governmental or corporate shakeups. Events occurring at this time are likely to affect large numbers of people and/or be featured heavily in the news resulting in large numbers of people becoming familiar with the event(s). Possible manifestations include an earthquake with a tsunami, major flooding, collapse of some large structures, distraction of a well-known ancient building, death/removal of a prominent leader, water pollution event, etc. The situation may involve an accident (or intentional attack) that blocks a flow of water, oil, gas, etc. — for ex., a blocked water way or a pipeline. These events may lead to protests or fighting in the subsequent days (end of April 2025).

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. 

Global and USA: Jun 14, 2025 (+- few days) — Globally, increased probability of major accidents (esp. involving lightening storms, airplanes, and power plants), bad weather, and increased market volatility (esp. related to finance, currencies, and banking). At the same time, for the US, there is an increased probability of major developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, floods, water, navy, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, healthcare, etc. as well as real estate, banks’ assets, banks’ stability, homeland security and food safety (e.g., due to water pollution, water shortages, or contamination of farmlands due to floods). In the US, there may be increased public concerns about pollution and floods — while these issues are often discussed in the news, at this time there may be significant developments that (a) affect or are known to large numbers of people and (b) lead to some important changes affecting relevant industries (e.g., oil/gas, water supply, agriculture, or pharma).

Global: Aug 8-14, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, possibly involving something shifting out of balance (like cargo on a ship or an airplane) and excessive speed (e.g., due to high winds or lighting). The event or events may involve something that flies or moves too fast (incl. airplanes, rockets, space debris, meteorites, etc.), generates excessive heat or power (e.g., a power plant) as well as a body of water or water supply (e.g., an aircraft crashes into a body of water). One possible negative manifestation would be an accident at a nuclear power plant, where too much power is generated and things heat up out of control because of shortage of water available for cooling. A possible positive manifestation would be a breakthrough innovation that allows generating massive amounts of power efficiently without using oil, gas, or water. Generally, expect increased news about major earthquakes, tsunamis, infectious diseases, navy, ships, and excessive precipitation. Update [05.31.21]: Other examples of possible manifestations include a major hurricane, a massive oil spill, or a large fire — the situation may involve a lack of [clean/suitable] water, so for example, fires are difficult to put out as there are water shortages, or, an oil spill/hurricane/epidemic/etc. creates a shortage of clean water.  

NEW Global: 2025-2032 — Increased possibility of droughts, dust storms, water shortages, and water pollution. The sourcing and usage of water, oil, gas, some chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biology-based components (e.g., for biocomputing) may dramatically change. This could be due to (a) some natural or manmade disasters leading to concerns about environmental pollution or shortages; and/or (b) scientific inventions, including biomedical research, that improve [water, oil, some chemical, some drug, etc.] resource management and enable novel uses of these resources. Innovations may involve ways to generate power by converting the chemical energy of [for example, hydrogen] to mechanical energy. Advancements will probably involve innovative power/fuel sources or new ways to use existing sources (in particular oil, water, or some chemical); new technologies related to communication and transportation (incl. electric vehicles, airplanes, submarines, motorcycles, helicopters, ships, etc.) [especially, things that fly, move super fast, and/or use water, such as submarines]; and IT innovations that enable much faster processing of much larger data volumes than before [again, this may involve novel uses of water, gas, chemicals, etc. as well as some biology-based components, biological or biochemical computing, combining biological and artificial neurons into a single network, and similar].

There may also be major advancements in medicine and bio-research related in particular to the treatment of wounds, burns, cuts, and other injuries that are typically associated with sports or wars. In particular, treatments related to head area of the body, as well as any inflammatory conditions (e.g., flu, dysentery, cholera, and bacterial or viral infections in general) may see some breakthroughs. There may be innovative uses of some pharmaceuticals, chemicals, or water than lead to faster healing. New treatments and medications may come out much quicker at this time, possibly due to circumstances that necessitate a quick turn-around and/or due to scientific advancements that allow quick development of new treatments/meds. The reason for the fast pace may be simply that technology advances allow for faster process and/or, it could be due to increase in the number of people who need certain treatments (e.g., due to a flu pandemic). There is also an increased risk of bio-medical advancements being misused to unethically enhance competitiveness in sports or military. 

Finally, there may be major innovations related to audio-visual equipment and how music or movies are produced or distributed. We may see innovations that enable producing music and movies much faster than before, enabling almost anyone to quickly create personalized music pieces or movies. There may be major advancements in virtualizing games, sports, and military activities using novel audio-visual equipment. These advancements would enable players/warriors to compete/fight virtually in more advanced ways than before. This includes any actual external equipment (e.g., a virtual reality helmet of some sort) but also any technological means of enhancing biological capabilities or vice versa, using bio-medical advancements to improve technological solutions. The focus may be on enhancing eye-sight and hearing to be able to “see” and “hear” more clearly (incl. under water, in the dark, etc.).

NEW Global: 2032-2035 — Possible problems with growing food and food production (possibly due to the preceding years of droughts). This may bring about some novel approaches to growing plants, raising livestock, manufacturing food artificially, restructuring agricultural processes, etc. There may be a move to a much more automated process for the food industry from growing food, to grocery delivery, to distributing cooked food, etc. — the entire process may become a lot more automated. These changes may go hand in hand with innovations in “smart” home technologies — from how homes are built and maintained, to how food is grown and delivered. The changes may stem from the problems with growing food naturally (the old way) and/or be due to the scientific advancements that allow food to be quickly produced [artificially or with the help of automated technologies] and delivered via automated means.

———————

ALL WEEK: 

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

Global: May 4 – June 24, 2021: May 4-29, 2021 — Negotiations, travel, communication, shipments, etc. may proceed relatively quicker than in the preceding weeks, but around May 30, things can stall or slow down. This may be due to some review being requested, offer being withdrawn, leadership transition necessitating a break, etc. Even though things should proceed relatively fast at this time, May 21 and 26-27 may see some hiccups in negotiations, travel, or shipments — this could be due to confusion (e.g., which ship should or should not be allowed to pass through) and/or increased news about the oil and gas prices (which may go up from May 2021 to early May 2022). From May 30 to June 22, 2021 (esp. June 2-14), the negotiations or shipments may slow down or even see some decisions reversed until the issues are resolved or more info is provided. Things may restart or speed up again on June 23, 2021. At that time, June 23-24, 2021, there may also be increased news about financial policies (rates, taxes, investments, real estate, etc.).

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

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

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

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

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

USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and, even more so, Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.

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

2021

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

2022

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

2025

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

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

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2026, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUN 21, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Oil prices as well as the value of businesses/products in other Neptunian domains, including gas, pharma, movies, beverages, and audio-visual equipment, may go up. At the same time, there may be positive news for the businesses in the areas above (e.g., increased funding, sales, or availability).

USA: Jun 21-22, 2021 — Positive news for areas related to IT, communication/transportation (incl. airlines, car manufacturers, and social media), retail sales, and education. We may hear about increased earnings, favorable environment, improved growth, positive outlook, available funding (e.g., through loans or investments), etc. New products introduced at this time (e.g., a new car, social media app, or a phone) have a greater than usual chance of becoming popular, especially among younger audience. 

JUN 22, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). 

Jun 22-23, 2021 — We may hear about excessive precipitation and/or a spread of some chemical/gas/liquid/oil causing problems (esp. for travel). There may also be increased news about lies/deception, religious groups or activities, and the safety of travel (internationally, by water, or across a body of water). If there is an increased flow of something (e.g., of water, chemical, gas, or a number of travelers), it will likely be difficult to stop — the “stream” will keep flowing and flowing. 

USA: Jun 22-23, 2021 — Some international agreements may be reached and relationships with partners may improve. At this time, it may be easier to reach deals because of the mutual agreement on the price or a value of something. Also, increased news about the workforce and healthcare — there will likely be good news (improved conditions, increased availability, improved clarity of where things are headed).

JUN 23, 2021 (WED): Strong Mixed influence; market may go up (55%). Up influence is stronger for the US than internationally. 

Jun 23-24, 2021 — Increased focus on communication/transportation (incl. airlines, car manufacturers, and social media). Some previously suspended or stuck negotiations may restart, a stranded vehicle may become mobile again, an agreement on some postponed deal may finally be reached, a travel route may re-open, delayed flights may resume, etc. At the same time, there may be increased news about rates, taxes, insurance, investments, real estate, banks, and financial policies in general. There may be concerns about hidden money, higher [hidden] taxes, higher insurance fees, hidden fees, losses due to governmental regulation, safety of savings/assets, and real estate prices. 

USA: Jun 23-24, 2021 — Focus on earnings, finance, banks, rates, taxes, and currency value. We may hear about financial regulations and associated concerns about rates and earnings. 

JUN 24, 2021 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55-60%). There may be greater than usual swings regardless of the direction. 

JUN 25, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

Global: June 14 – July 15, 2021 (esp. Jun 28 – July 9) — Saturn square Uranus will be felt strongly. All week and intensifying into late June to early July (when Saturn, Uranus, and Mars will form a t-square), the unfolding Saturn Uranus square will be very precise. This may manifest as increased geopolitical tensions, protests, earthquakes, accidents, disasters, and market volatility (incl. flash crashes). See “Glance Ahead” section below for examples of events that have occurred in the past under similar transits (Saturn in a hard aspect to Uranus plus additional tense aspects; repeats every 11-12 years). Earlier this February (Feb 7, 2021), when the Saturn Uranus also became exact, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. 

Global: Jun 28 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jun 29 through Jul 6) — Increased risk of flash crashes in the stock market. At a minimum, increased market volatility. The most affected sectors will probably include (A) finance, currencies, crypto (some asset may quickly lose a lot of value but then rapidly rebound or vice versa, sharply gain and then drop); (B) communication/transportation (esp. airplanes, electric cars, and transportation of oil/gas/chemicals or maritime transportation); and (C) metals (possible concerns about shortages, unstable conditions, supply chain disruptions, old logistics breaking, etc.).

Global: Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go. 

Update [06.13.21]: Some specific manifestation of similar transits in the past included major earthquakes, avalanches, rockslides, airplane crashes (e.g., the downing of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3 1988), air show disasters, large car pile-ups (100+ cars) due to bad road conditions, car accidents involving famous people [and having consequences for large groups of people who relied on that famous person being in good health], accidents involving improper use of chemicals leading to explosion/fire, gas or oil pipe leaks leading to explosion/fire, oil rig disasters (e.g., the Piper Alpha oil rig explosion on July 6 1988, one of the worst offshore industry’s disasters in history), mishandling of fireworks leading to explosion/fire, major flooding resulting from dam failure (so not just due to rain, but specifically due to a structural collapse), bacterial contamination of municipal water, as well as bad weather in general (unseasonably hot or cold, dry or wet). In terms of the stock market, there have been flash crashes and increased market volatility. Lastly, there have been increased protests and news about military escalations (e.g., deployment of troops to deal with some situation).

NEW China: Jul 2-11, 2021 — Potentially difficult and tense time. Increased news about the military, weapons, arguments with partners, conflict escalations, athletic achievements, sports records broken, as well as incidents/accidents/explosions/fires/etc. Manifestations can range from breaking records in sports competitions to escalating threats and militarized conflicts. Not a good time for peaceful negotiations; agreements will likely not go well or will require a saintly amount of patience. Previous agreements/deals may be broken. Finally, there may be problems related to communication/transportation (negotiations broken off, fighting with partners, problems with car safety, issues with travel due to dangerous circumstances such as fires).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 (esp. May-Sep, 2025 and Jan-Mar, 2026) may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc. Update [05.23.21]: Other manifestations may include major maritime disasters, massive oil spills, breakdowns of infrastructure necessary to support related industries (e.g., oil, gas, water, pharma, etc.) and generally stressful events affecting the value and availability of oil, gas, chemicals, clean water, etc. There may be shortages and/or rationing of the related products. This will likely be a major reversal point for oil and gas prices (probably a TOP). For other related products, such as clean water or some drug or chemical, this too can be a time of massive price peaks or drops. Lastly there may be some concerns related to religious or faith-based groups (e.g., cults) — there may be concerns about oppression (of the members and by the members) or inappropriate activities. Update [05.31.21]: An oil spill that may occur at this time (esp. around Aug 9, 2025) could be significant — for example, Exxon Valdez spill also occurred under the Saturn Neptune conjunction. As such, it would likely have important consequences for the energy industry. This possibility is supported by the fact that both planets will switch signs in 2025 from the watery Pisces, friendly to Neptune, to the fiery Aries ruled by Mars, “god of war.” Under the influence of the new sign, the view of the Neptunian products (e.g., oil, navy, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, movies, water, fish, etc.) may shift from “we have a lot of it and it’s easy to obtain” to one or more of the following: “We have so much of it that we need to impose restrictions on production,” “we don’t have enough and the supply is drying up,”  and/or “the price is climbing too high, so we need to set ceiling limits on the price.” With possible concerns about the availability of clean water, there may be a big push for industrial-scale projects on efficient waste water treatment and water recycling. There will likely be increased efforts to stop the spread of some contamination, disease, etc. and to minimize water pollution. More generally, there may be major changes in Neptunian domains, incl. oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, water, etc. — from the abundance and/or high prices to shortages, losses, and lowering the prices through restrictions. 

Global: Feb 1, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, floods, oil spills, gas leaks, industrial disasters, prison breaks, problems with medical research facilities, and/or healthcare-related problems (e.g., pandemic or problems with hospitals or pharmaceuticals). The value of oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, clean water, some beverage, etc. may be in focus — some extreme price point may be reached (e.g., a major TOP in the value of oil or some drug). There may be increased concerns about [water] pollution, poisons, contamination, infestation, as well as deceptive activities, hacking, lies, etc. Additional affected areas could be beverages, movie theaters, concert halls, hospitals, etc. There may also be breakthroughs or major achievements or discoveries in those areas, such as a miracle drug, chemical with amazing properties, super-popular song/movie/beverage, water with special properties, underwater tunnel that everyone wants to visit, etc.

Global: Apr 11 and 21, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, earthquakes, industrial disasters, and/or governmental or corporate shakeups. Events occurring at this time are likely to affect large numbers of people and/or be featured heavily in the news resulting in large numbers of people becoming familiar with the event(s). Possible manifestations include an earthquake with a tsunami, major flooding, collapse of some large structures, distraction of a well-known ancient building, death/removal of a prominent leader, water pollution event, etc. The situation may involve an accident (or intentional attack) that blocks a flow of water, oil, gas, etc. — for ex., a blocked water way or a pipeline. These events may lead to protests or fighting in the subsequent days (end of April 2025).

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. 

Global and USA: Jun 14, 2025 (+- few days) — Globally, increased probability of major accidents (esp. involving lightening storms, airplanes, and power plants), bad weather, and increased market volatility (esp. related to finance, currencies, and banking). At the same time, for the US, there is an increased probability of major developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, floods, water, navy, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, healthcare, etc. as well as real estate, banks’ assets, banks’ stability, homeland security and food safety (e.g., due to water pollution, water shortages, or contamination of farmlands due to floods). In the US, there may be increased public concerns about pollution and floods — while these issues are often discussed in the news, at this time there may be significant developments that (a) affect or are known to large numbers of people and (b) lead to some important changes affecting relevant industries (e.g., oil/gas, water supply, agriculture, or pharma).

Global: Aug 8-14, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, possibly involving something shifting out of balance (like cargo on a ship or an airplane) and excessive speed (e.g., due to high winds or lighting). The event or events may involve something that flies or moves too fast (incl. airplanes, rockets, space debris, meteorites, etc.), generates excessive heat or power (e.g., a power plant) as well as a body of water or water supply (e.g., an aircraft crashes into a body of water). One possible negative manifestation would be an accident at a nuclear power plant, where too much power is generated and things heat up out of control because of shortage of water available for cooling. A possible positive manifestation would be a breakthrough innovation that allows generating massive amounts of power efficiently without using oil, gas, or water. Generally, expect increased news about major earthquakes, tsunamis, infectious diseases, navy, ships, and excessive precipitation. Update [05.31.21]: Other examples of possible manifestations include a major hurricane, a massive oil spill, or a large fire — the situation may involve a lack of [clean/suitable] water, so for example, fires are difficult to put out as there are water shortages, or, an oil spill/hurricane/epidemic/etc. creates a shortage of clean water.

ALL WEEK: 

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

Global: May 4 – June 24, 2021: May 4-29, 2021 — Negotiations, travel, communication, shipments, etc. may proceed relatively quicker than in the preceding weeks, but around May 30, things can stall or slow down. This may be due to some review being requested, offer being withdrawn, leadership transition necessitating a break, etc. Even though things should proceed relatively fast at this time, May 21 and 26-27 may see some hiccups in negotiations, travel, or shipments — this could be due to confusion (e.g., which ship should or should not be allowed to pass through) and/or increased news about the oil and gas prices (which may go up from May 2021 to early May 2022). From May 30 to June 22, 2021 (esp. June 2-14), the negotiations or shipments may slow down or even see some decisions reversed until the issues are resolved or more info is provided. Things may restart or speed up again on June 23, 2021. At that time, June 23-24, 2021, there may also be increased news about financial policies (rates, taxes, investments, real estate, etc.).

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

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

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

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

USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and, even more so, Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.

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

2021

  • Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Jun 21, 2021 — Oil price may go up around the 21st or in the preceding days.
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

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

2025

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

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

Saturn square Uranus, T-Square to Mars—What has occurred under similar transits in the past?

Saturn square Uranus, with Mars forming a difficult aspect (conjunction, square, or opposition) to one or both of these planets has often coincided with turbulent weather events (e.g., tornadoes), and an uptick in accidents (e.g., airplane crashes, explosions), major earthquakes, and man-made as well as natural disasters. 

I don’t believe there is a causative effect (as in planetary alignments do not cause these events to happen), but there appears to be a correlation. There is an increase in certain types of stressful events during difficult planetary transits. The embedded video goes through some examples of the events that took place specifically under tense transits between Saturn and Uranus, when also triggered by Mars, in 1953, 1975-76, 1988, 2000, 2010, and 2021.

In 2021, Saturn, Uranus, and Mars will form a T-Square in late June to early July (approx. June 29 – July 9, 2021). Saturn will oppose Mars, and both Mars and Saturn will square Uranus. 

VIDEO:

Besides Saturn/Uranus combinations, there are other planetary transits that often correspond to accidents/disasters/quakes/etc. For example, alignments of slow-moving planets with Moon Nodes and/or in aspect to Chiron. Also, when Jupiter gets “involved,” the magnitude of the event is typically larger in scale or impact. Pluto transits appear to increase death toll or coincide with things that occur “underground,” such as mining incidents.

During major events, such as a large earthquake or a large-scale industrial disaster, the event charts often have slow-moving planets (e.g., Saturn or Pluto) on one of the axis of the chart (e.g., Ascendant or IC). For instance, Uranus was rising in the Chernobyl Explosion chart [to clarify, this is not one of the events in the video, am just mentioning it as an example of a slow planet on an axis on an accident chart].

JUN 14, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Concerns about market volatility (incl. currencies and cryptocurrencies), rates, and about oil/gas/pharma/chemicals/etc. (especially about sales and transportation of the related products, such as oil).

June 14 – July 15, 2021 (esp. Jun 28 – July 9) — Saturn square Uranus will be felt strongly. All week and intensifying into late June to early July (when Saturn, Uranus, and Mars will form a t-square), the unfolding Saturn Uranus square will be very precise. This may manifest as increased geopolitical tensions, protests, earthquakes, accidents, disasters, and market volatility (incl. flash crashes). See “Glance Ahead” section below for examples of events that have occurred in the past under similar transits (Saturn in a hard aspect to Uranus plus additional tense aspects; repeats every 11-12 years). Earlier this February (Feb 7, 2021), when the Saturn Uranus also became exact, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing. 

USA: June 14, 2021 — Increased concerns about leaders, status on the global arena, the value of currency, and/or about banks’ stability or their earnings. 

China: June 14, 2021 — Concerns about the earnings, expenses, or financial losses related to oil/gas/pharma/chemicals/etc. There may also be increased news about currency value and banks. 

JUN 15, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). Increased focus on the value of gold/silver, USD value, and US financial policies. The market may bounce back somewhat and in response, the value of gold/silver may drop slightly (this is a short lived influence, however).

JUN 16, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%). Possibly, improved mood or optimistic expectations about the areas related to oil/gas/pharma/chemicals/etc. For ex., there may be positive news about some negotiations moving in the right direction, or, hopes for an agreement [that would lead to improved transportation or sales of the related products]. The hopeful mood may bring the market up. 

JUN 17, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Increased focus on oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, navy, water pollution, drugs, deceptive activities, movies, beverages, etc. The news may be slightly worrisome or involve anxiety over some agreement, miscommunication, or a transportation project. There may be concerns about some deal being up in the air, parties not communicating transparently, reports (e.g., about a drug’s effectiveness, a movie theater chain’s popularity, or a chemical’s properties) missing info, shipment being stuck (due to some confusing situation and/or disagreements on how to proceed), etc. The value of related assets may go down slightly (the direction will likely reverse to up by Friday, June 18 or Monday, June 21).

JUN 18, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (55%). 

(MON) Jun 21, 2021 — Oil prices as well as the value of businesses/products in other Neptunian domains, including gas, pharma, movies, beverages, and audio-visual equipment, may go up. In terms of the stock market direction, there may be a drop

>>>> Glance ahead (updated):

NEW Global: Jun 28 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jun 29 through Jul 6) — Increased risk of flash crashes in the stock market. At a minimum, increased market volatility. The most affected sectors will probably include (A) finance, currencies, crypto (some asset may quickly lose a lot of value but then rapidly rebound or vice versa, sharply gain and then drop); (B) communication/transportation (esp. airplanes, electric cars, and transportation of oil/gas/chemicals or maritime transportation); and (C) metals (possible concerns about shortages, unstable conditions, supply chain disruptions, old logistics breaking, etc.).

Updated Global: Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go. 

Update [06.13.21]: Some specific manifestation of similar transits in the past included major earthquakes, avalanches, rockslides, airplane crashes (e.g., the downing of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3 1988), air show disasters, large car pile-ups (100+ cars) due to bad road conditions, car accidents involving famous people [and having consequences for large groups of people who relied on that famous person being in good health], accidents involving improper use of chemicals leading to explosion/fire, gas or oil pipe leaks leading to explosion/fire, oil rig disasters (e.g., the Piper Alpha oil rig explosion on July 6 1988, one of the worst offshore industry’s disasters in history), mishandling of fireworks leading to explosion/fire, major flooding resulting from dam failure (so not just due to rain, but specifically due to a structural collapse), bacterial contamination of municipal water, as well as bad weather in general (unseasonably hot or cold, dry or wet). In terms of the stock market, there have been flash crashes and increased market volatility. Lastly, there have been increased protests and news about military escalations (e.g., deployment of troops to deal with some situation).

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 (esp. May-Sep, 2025 and Jan-Mar, 2026) may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc. Update [05.23.21]: Other manifestations may include major maritime disasters, massive oil spills, breakdowns of infrastructure necessary to support related industries (e.g., oil, gas, water, pharma, etc.) and generally stressful events affecting the value and availability of oil, gas, chemicals, clean water, etc. There may be shortages and/or rationing of the related products. This will likely be a major reversal point for oil and gas prices (probably a TOP). For other related products, such as clean water or some drug or chemical, this too can be a time of massive price peaks or drops. Lastly there may be some concerns related to religious or faith-based groups (e.g., cults) — there may be concerns about oppression (of the members and by the members) or inappropriate activities. Update [05.31.21]: An oil spill that may occur at this time (esp. around Aug 9, 2025) could be significant — for example, Exxon Valdez spill also occurred under the Saturn Neptune conjunction. As such, it would likely have important consequences for the energy industry. This possibility is supported by the fact that both planets will switch signs in 2025 from the watery Pisces, friendly to Neptune, to the fiery Aries ruled by Mars, “god of war.” Under the influence of the new sign, the view of the Neptunian products (e.g., oil, navy, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, movies, water, fish, etc.) may shift from “we have a lot of it and it’s easy to obtain” to one or more of the following: “We have so much of it that we need to impose restrictions on production,” “we don’t have enough and the supply is drying up,”  and/or “the price is climbing too high, so we need to set ceiling limits on the price.” With possible concerns about the availability of clean water, there may be a big push for industrial-scale projects on efficient waste water treatment and water recycling. There will likely be increased efforts to stop the spread of some contamination, disease, etc. and to minimize water pollution. More generally, there may be major changes in Neptunian domains, incl. oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, water, etc. — from the abundance and/or high prices to shortages, losses, and lowering the prices through restrictions. 

Global: Feb 1, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, floods, oil spills, gas leaks, industrial disasters, prison breaks, problems with medical research facilities, and/or healthcare-related problems (e.g., pandemic or problems with hospitals or pharmaceuticals). The value of oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, clean water, some beverage, etc. may be in focus — some extreme price point may be reached (e.g., a major TOP in the value of oil or some drug). There may be increased concerns about [water] pollution, poisons, contamination, infestation, as well as deceptive activities, hacking, lies, etc. Additional affected areas could be beverages, movie theaters, concert halls, hospitals, etc. There may also be breakthroughs or major achievements or discoveries in those areas, such as a miracle drug, chemical with amazing properties, super-popular song/movie/beverage, water with special properties, underwater tunnel that everyone wants to visit, etc.

Global: Apr 11 and 21, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, earthquakes, industrial disasters, and/or governmental or corporate shakeups. Events occurring at this time are likely to affect large numbers of people and/or be featured heavily in the news resulting in large numbers of people becoming familiar with the event(s). Possible manifestations include an earthquake with a tsunami, major flooding, collapse of some large structures, distraction of a well-known ancient building, death/removal of a prominent leader, water pollution event, etc. The situation may involve an accident (or intentional attack) that blocks a flow of water, oil, gas, etc. — for ex., a blocked water way or a pipeline. These events may lead to protests or fighting in the subsequent days (end of April 2025).

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. 

Global and USA: Jun 14, 2025 (+- few days) — Globally, increased probability of major accidents (esp. involving lightening storms, airplanes, and power plants), bad weather, and increased market volatility (esp. related to finance, currencies, and banking). At the same time, for the US, there is an increased probability of major developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, floods, water, navy, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, healthcare, etc. as well as real estate, banks’ assets, banks’ stability, homeland security and food safety (e.g., due to water pollution, water shortages, or contamination of farmlands due to floods). In the US, there may be increased public concerns about pollution and floods — while these issues are often discussed in the news, at this time there may be significant developments that (a) affect or are known to large numbers of people and (b) lead to some important changes affecting relevant industries (e.g., oil/gas, water supply, agriculture, or pharma).

Global: Aug 8-14, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, possibly involving something shifting out of balance (like cargo on a ship or an airplane) and excessive speed (e.g., due to high winds or lighting). The event or events may involve something that flies or moves too fast (incl. airplanes, rockets, space debris, meteorites, etc.), generates excessive heat or power (e.g., a power plant) as well as a body of water or water supply (e.g., an aircraft crashes into a body of water). One possible negative manifestation would be an accident at a nuclear power plant, where too much power is generated and things heat up out of control because of shortage of water available for cooling. A possible positive manifestation would be a breakthrough innovation that allows generating massive amounts of power efficiently without using oil, gas, or water. Generally, expect increased news about major earthquakes, tsunamis, infectious diseases, navy, ships, and excessive precipitation. Update [05.31.21]: Other examples of possible manifestations include a major hurricane, a massive oil spill, or a large fire — the situation may involve a lack of [clean/suitable] water, so for example, fires are difficult to put out as there are water shortages, or, an oil spill/hurricane/epidemic/etc. creates a shortage of clean water.  

———————

ALL WEEK: 

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

Global: May 4 – June 24, 2021: May 4-29, 2021 — Negotiations, travel, communication, shipments, etc. may proceed relatively quicker than in the preceding weeks, but around May 30, things can stall or slow down. This may be due to some review being requested, offer being withdrawn, leadership transition necessitating a break, etc. Even though things should proceed relatively fast at this time, May 21 and 26-27 may see some hiccups in negotiations, travel, or shipments — this could be due to confusion (e.g., which ship should or should not be allowed to pass through) and/or increased news about the oil and gas prices (which may go up from May 2021 to early May 2022). From May 30 to June 22, 2021 (esp. June 2-14), the negotiations or shipments may slow down or even see some decisions reversed until the issues are resolved or more info is provided. Things may restart or speed up again on June 23, 2021. At that time, June 23-24, 2021, there may also be increased news about financial policies (rates, taxes, investments, real estate, etc.).

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

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

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

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

USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and, even more so, Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.

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

2021

  • Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Jun 21, 2021 — Oil price may go up around the 21st or in the preceding days.
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

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

2025

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

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

June 7-13, 2021: Weekly financial astrology predictions

LONG-TERM:

Global: Video with 2021 predictions on my YouTube channel

For ongoing background influences for 2018-2026, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated

———————

DAILY:

JUN 7, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60%). 

Jun 7-13 (esp. 7 and 10-13), 2021 — Increased focus on various Neptunian domains, such as oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, drugs, water, navy, fishing, pollution, religion, movies, beverages, etc. There may be increased negotiations, news about sales/deals, issues with transportation, problems due to bad weather or hacking, etc. The negotiations or plans may be confusing at this time, the details may be unclear, the nature of negotiations or the parties involved may be secretive/hidden, the transportation route may be hard to determine (e.g., due to some uncertain circumstances, spill, bad weather, etc.). At this time, it may be difficult to know the full extent of the situation; agreements reached at this time will likely need to be revised later due to omissions or errors. 

USA: Jun 7, 2021 — During pre-open hours, there may be optimism about some initiatives related to international agreements, immigration, long distance travel and shipments, international expansion, etc. There may be high hopes for and happiness about amicable agreements and increased earnings from those domains. By the afternoon, the upbeat mood about these areas may fizzle out.   

USA: Jun 7-13 (esp. 7 and 10-13), 2021 — Mild concerns and stressful negotiations related to oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, beverages, drugs, etc. The negotiations may be confusing, contracts may be missing important details, or agreements may be hard to reach due to omitted data and disagreements among partners. At the same time, there may be increased negotiations or news related to stock market, casinos, sports (esp. racing or risky sports), and generally risky, dangerous or military activities. The focus may be on regulations to reduce volatility and ensure open/free but safe communication/transportation. For ex., there may be discussions about regulating risky investments, protecting soldiers, improving firearms safety, improving car safety, preventing on-line bullying, ensuring safety of journalists and social media influencers, and so on.  

JUN 8, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).

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

June 9-11, 2021 — Important announcements about new projects or leaders in the areas related to retail sales, IT, and communication/transportation (incl. social media, cars, phones, airplanes, etc.). We may hear about new [female] leaders or about projects that aim to ensure physical or emotional safety when communicating or traveling (e.g., to protect children from cyber-bullying, to prevent vehicles from overheating, to prevent contact with polluted environment, etc.).

JUN 10, 2021 (TH): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (55%). 

JUN 11, 2021 (FR): Medium-Strong influence; market may go down (60%). 

Mon, Jun 14, 2021 — Looks like a down day with concerns about market volatility (incl. currencies and cryptocurrencies) and continuing concerns about oil/gas/pharma/chemicals/etc. Additionally, for the US, on June 14 there may be increased concerns about leaders, status on the global arena, the value of currency, and/or about banks’ stability or their earnings. For China, June 14 may bring concerns about the earnings, expenses, or financial losses related to oil/gas/pharma/chemicals/etc.; there may also be increased news about currency value and banks.

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

Global: Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Global: Neptune conjunct Saturn in 2025 through early 2026 (esp. May-Sep, 2025 and Jan-Mar, 2026) may coincide with another major viral epidemic. Neptune/Saturn conjunction was in effect during the deadly Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 20-50 million people. With Neptune entering Aries at the same time (Aries rules things like military, war, sports, surgery, fire, etc.), the outbreak may be associated with inflammation, fever, dehydration, etc. and/or may be related to bioweapon development, fires spreading pollution, lack of [clean] water due to drought, etc. Update [05.23.21]: Other manifestations may include major maritime disasters, massive oil spills, breakdowns of infrastructure necessary to support related industries (e.g., oil, gas, water, pharma, etc.) and generally stressful events affecting the value and availability of oil, gas, chemicals, clean water, etc. There may be shortages and/or rationing of the related products. This will likely be a major reversal point for oil and gas prices (probably a TOP). For other related products, such as clean water or some drug or chemical, this too can be a time of massive price peaks or drops. Lastly there may be some concerns related to religious or faith-based groups (e.g., cults) — there may be concerns about oppression (of the members and by the members) or inappropriate activities. Update [05.31.21]: An oil spill that may occur at this time (esp. around Aug 9, 2025) could be significant — for example, Exxon Valdez spill also occurred under the Saturn Neptune conjunction. As such, it would likely have important consequences for the energy industry. This possibility is supported by the fact that both planets will switch signs in 2025 from the watery Pisces, friendly to Neptune, to the fiery Aries ruled by Mars, “god of war.” Under the influence of the new sign, the view of the Neptunian products (e.g., oil, navy, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, movies, water, fish, etc.) may shift from “we have a lot of it and it’s easy to obtain” to one or more of the following: “We have so much of it that we need to impose restrictions on production,” “we don’t have enough and the supply is drying up,”  and/or “the price is climbing too high, so we need to set ceiling limits on the price.” With possible concerns about the availability of clean water, there may be a big push for industrial-scale projects on efficient waste water treatment and water recycling. There will likely be increased efforts to stop the spread of some contamination, disease, etc. and to minimize water pollution. More generally, there may be major changes in Neptunian domains, incl. oil, gas, pharma, chemicals, water, etc. — from the abundance and/or high prices to shortages, losses, and lowering the prices through restrictions. 

Global: Feb 1, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, floods, oil spills, gas leaks, industrial disasters, prison breaks, problems with medical research facilities, and/or healthcare-related problems (e.g., pandemic or problems with hospitals or pharmaceuticals). The value of oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, clean water, some beverage, etc. may be in focus — some extreme price point may be reached (e.g., a major TOP in the value of oil or some drug). There may be increased concerns about [water] pollution, poisons, contamination, infestation, as well as deceptive activities, hacking, lies, etc. Additional affected areas could be beverages, movie theaters, concert halls, hospitals, etc. There may also be breakthroughs or major achievements or discoveries in those areas, such as a miracle drug, chemical with amazing properties, super-popular song/movie/beverage, water with special properties, underwater tunnel that everyone wants to visit, etc.

Global: Apr 11 and 21, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, earthquakes, industrial disasters, and/or governmental or corporate shakeups. Events occurring at this time are likely to affect large numbers of people and/or be featured heavily in the news resulting in large numbers of people becoming familiar with the event(s). Possible manifestations include an earthquake with a tsunami, major flooding, collapse of some large structures, distraction of a well-known ancient building, death/removal of a prominent leader, water pollution event, etc. The situation may involve an accident (or intentional attack) that blocks a flow of water, oil, gas, etc. — for ex., a blocked water way or a pipeline. These events may lead to protests or fighting in the subsequent days (end of April 2025).

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. 

Global and USA: Jun 14, 2025 (+- few days) — Globally, increased probability of major accidents (esp. involving lightening storms, airplanes, and power plants), bad weather, and increased market volatility (esp. related to finance, currencies, and banking). At the same time, for the US, there is an increased probability of major developments related to oil, gas, chemicals, floods, water, navy, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, healthcare, etc. as well as real estate, banks’ assets, banks’ stability, homeland security and food safety (e.g., due to water pollution, water shortages, or contamination of farmlands due to floods). In the US, there may be increased public concerns about pollution and floods — while these issues are often discussed in the news, at this time there may be significant developments that (a) affect or are known to large numbers of people and (b) lead to some important changes affecting relevant industries (e.g., oil/gas, water supply, agriculture, or pharma).

Global: Aug 8-14, 2025 (+- few days) — Major accidents, possibly involving something shifting out of balance (like cargo on a ship or an airplane) and excessive speed (e.g., due to high winds or lighting). The event or events may involve something that flies or moves too fast (incl. airplanes, rockets, space debris, meteorites, etc.), generates excessive heat or power (e.g., a power plant) as well as a body of water or water supply (e.g., an aircraft crashes into a body of water). One possible negative manifestation would be an accident at a nuclear power plant, where too much power is generated and things heat up out of control because of shortage of water available for cooling. A possible positive manifestation would be a breakthrough innovation that allows generating massive amounts of power efficiently without using oil, gas, or water. Generally, expect increased news about major earthquakes, tsunamis, infectious diseases, navy, ships, and excessive precipitation. Update [05.31.21]: Other examples of possible manifestations include a major hurricane, a massive oil spill, or a large fire — the situation may involve a lack of [clean/suitable] water, so for example, fires are difficult to put out as there are water shortages, or, an oil spill/hurricane/epidemic/etc. creates a shortage of clean water.

ALL WEEK: 

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

Global: May 4 – June 24, 2021: May 4-29, 2021 — Negotiations, travel, communication, shipments, etc. may proceed relatively quicker than in the preceding weeks, but around May 30, things can stall or slow down. This may be due to some review being requested, offer being withdrawn, leadership transition necessitating a break, etc. Even though things should proceed relatively fast at this time, May 21 and 26-27 may see some hiccups in negotiations, travel, or shipments — this could be due to confusion (e.g., which ship should or should not be allowed to pass through) and/or increased news about the oil and gas prices (which may go up from May 2021 to early May 2022). From May 30 to June 22, 2021 (esp. June 2-14), the negotiations or shipments may slow down or even see some decisions reversed until the issues are resolved or more info is provided. Things may restart or speed up again on June 23, 2021. At that time, June 23-24, 2021, there may also be increased news about financial policies (rates, taxes, investments, real estate, etc.).

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

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

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

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

USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and, even more so, Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.

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

2021

  • Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines. 
  • Added a bullet (04.18.21): May 28 – Jun 2, 2021 — Increased flow or movement of oil, gas, chemicals, liquids, etc. This may be an actual flood, oil or chemical spill, a situation where there is an excess of oil or gas, gas leak, or a situation that enables a free flow of oil or gas (e.g., a transportation route the has been blocked is now open).
  • Jun 21, 2021 — Oil price may go up around the 21st or in the preceding days.
  • Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures). 
  • Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc. 
  • Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
  • Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
  • Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as  infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.

2022

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

2025

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

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