Global: Early Sep to third week of Sep (esp. Sep 16-17) — News related to water, oil, drugs, chemicals, alcohol, deceases, spirituality/religion, and healthcare may come into focus (to peak around mid-September). The focus will likely be on abundance and excess (e.g., too much oil, flooding, going overboard with religious fanaticism, spread of diseases, spread of drugs/chemicals/water pollution, etc.). Illusions, delusions, or deceptions, can find more support than usual — investors may be swayed by some beautiful vision and overlook the details/fine print or facts. On the other hand, this is a good time for the movie industry, photography, selling alcohol, surfing boards, music, preaching, etc. — audiences will crave an escape from the “harsh reality” into the world of magic or inspiration more than usual.
USA: Feb 2015 — March 2016 (esp. late March/early April 2015, and Sep 2015 through Feb 2016) — Major changes in international relationships. This is a very slow gradual change with the ultimate effect of dissolving old ties and alliances. In the process, there will be a lot of confusion and possible deception and disillusion (e.g., partners fail to follow through on agreements). There will be a strong spiritual or religious element to these ties — some alliances may spring up or disappear because of similarities or differences in ideals and vision for the future. Other important areas that will affect partnerships are common views/goals related to oil, healthcare, and water/navy. This week, this influence will peak around Sep 7.
Astrologically, this influence relates to the transiting Neptune (religion) squaring US Descendent (marriage/partnerships). It is interesting that the Neptune transit to the US Descendent coincides with the first ever Pope’s visit to the USA. The last time this aspect was in effect was in 1851-52, which corresponded with important activities related to the LDS Church.
USA: Mar 2015 — Apr 2016 (esp. April 2015, mid-Aug 2015, and mid-Feb 2016) — Major changes in transportation and communication industries as well as retail sales (related mostly to web-based and electronic transactions, which require data transfers). This is a very slow gradual change with the ultimate effect of dissolving old ways of doing things (e.g., commuting, communicating, shipping, traveling, and buying/selling) and coming up with new ways. This is likely to involve dissolution and mergers of transportation and communication companies, incl. companies that process payments electronically (e.g., Western Union).
Other affected areas will be aerospace, telecoms, IT industry, electric engines, electronics, gadgets, and similar industries. The changes will likely have to do with oil (e.g., oil prices affect shipping and flights), healthcare (e.g., spread of some contagious disease affects travel), water (e.g., floods, rains, etc. affect transportation; travel by water becomes much more or less popular; new cable is laid under water; etc.), navy (e.g., there are some problems with or confusion about aerospace projects, island bases, submarines, ships that carry planes over water, etc.), chemicals/pollution (e.g., shipping accidents resulting in pollution or poisoning may increase), movies/music (e.g., developments in the entertainment industry will lead to reorganization of the media companies or push these companies to implement new hi-tech approaches for signal transmission), and spirituality/religion (e.g., some people’s beliefs will not agree with new technology like robots and autopilot). Ideological battles over new technology may manifest as increased arguments over what is healthy, spiritual, and how to prevent pollution. New controls to prevent infectious diseases from spreading through travel may be invented or implemented.
Astrologically, this influence relates to the transiting Neptune (religion) squaring US Uranus (high tech, sudden change) in the 7th house of partnerships, ruler of the 3rd house of transportation/communication. The last time this aspect was in effect was in 1851-52, which corresponded with outbreaks of cholera and flu.
China: Jan 2014 — Jan 2016 (esp., Mar-Jun 2014, Dec 2014 – Mar 2015, Jun-Dec 2015) — Major transformation of financial system, approaches to accumulating wealth, investments, rates, taxes, insurance, managing stock market and any gambling or risky activities. Some governmental or corporate controls will be placed to regulate matters so that they remain in balance.
SEP 14, 2015 (MON): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). On Mon-Tue early am, there may be good news about leaders reaching an agreement, talks going smoothly, and parties choosing diplomatic solutions. Overall, the mood should be relatively upbeat.
Sep 14-19, esp. 14-16 — Increased focus on oil, water (e.g., floods, bad weather, pollution, etc.), navy, drugs, chemicals, healthcare, religion, and movie/music industries. The nature of the news will be that there is an abundance of something to the point of where things end up going overboard. Also highlighted will be a theme of victimization, salvation, healing, and helping the needy (to the point of completely sacrificing oneself).
USA (Sep 14-15): Some news related to the subjects above (oil, etc.) will be highlighted. It will either be positive (like things are going strong) or will clarify a previously confusing issue — now the course may be clear on how to proceed. This issue may relate to farming, food/beverage industry, maternal or end-of-life healthcare, real estate, housing, and borders. For ex., the decision is made about water or pesticides needed for farming, drug related to motherhood or elderly, plan to house victims of some disaster, etc.
China: On Sep 14-18, there is an increased probability of some important news about financial system and banks, esp. in relationship to foreign matters/relationships. The nature of the news may be to clarify something, put something in writing, and/or announce plans for a decrease/constrain (the latter is the strongest on Sep 17). The plans at this time may be preliminary — the decision will probably be revisited again.
SEP 15, 2015 (TUE): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%). The mood should continue to be relatively upbeat today.
SEP 16, 2015 (WED): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (65%). Today may be a day when the market reaches a major high on some hopes/optimism.
Sep 16-17 — likely, a major market reversal (+- 1-2 days), probably from up to down. There may also be major news about oil at this time (e.g., that there is too much of oil, that the price decrease went over board, that something is way too under/over-estimated, etc.).
Sep 8-18: Increased focus on hope and optimism, idealism, sacrifice, starry-eyed or delusional views about economic conditions, lies and confusion — this will likely relate to healthcare, oil, and spirituality. Calls for humane attitudes, attention to healing, religion, and salvation will peak. Good time for meditation, spiritual retreats, healing and helping others to heal. The down side of this influence is that decisions taken at this time will likely be based on hopes and idealistic aspirations without any concern for practical implementation. Thus, big dreams conceived at this time may not be implemented [because they are unrealistic]. After peaking around Sep 16, the idealistic vibe will begin to dissipate and an awakening to the harsh “reality” may bring the market down. Some grand visions or calls for sacrifice will begin to lose their appeal.
SEP 17, 2015 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%). The down influence is the strongest late pm. A major reversal is likely — it will probably be related to oil, water, religion, foreign developments, etc. and/or a deflation of the hopeful/optimistic but unrealistic expectations.
SEP 18, 2015 (FR): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). Likely, a reversal day (instead of the 17th) and/or a day when the reversal from the 17th will be followed by another strong down move.
Sep 2015 – Dec 2017: Focus on oil, water, drugs, lies, religion, higher education, immigration, foreign connections, and long distance travel with a new sober/realistic perspective — the mood may be that these areas got out of hand, went over board, and need discipline/restrictions/regulation. Immigration control, control of religious ceremonies, structured approach to higher education, limitation on foreign currencies/connections/long distance travel, etc. This new perspective will strengthen over upcoming months and will remain till about the end of 2017.
USA: There may be positive news about the economy and country’s future goals/vision with focus on international expansion, higher education, and immigration. Gold prices may see a big move on the 18th (esp. in the afternoon) and/or on the 21st — possibly a reversal from down to up. On the 18th-19th, transiting Mars will oppose US Moon — in the past, this often coincided with gold prices forming a MIN (which means an up move followed immediately).
