Global: 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: 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 21, 2015 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).
Sep 21-22: Increased focus on foreign currencies (some positive news likely, like new initiatives aimed at increasing money flow have produced desired results). Additionally, increased probability of positive news about industries and initiatives related to electricity, telecoms, electronics, aerospace, electric engines, etc. — for ex., that these businesses are profitable, well-liked, and attractive.
China: On Sep 21-22, there may be mildly negative news about finances related to foreign connections and domestic policies — for ex., there is a shortage of cash or the value of something domestic has decreased because of some agreement or disagreement with international partners.
China: Sep 21-25 — likely increased news about banks/financial system and stock market (esp. businesses or commodities related to mining). These may not be stressful (except for Sep 22), but may involve stalled negotiations, delayed agreements, or reversed decisions (esp. related to transportation or communication/media).
SEP 22, 2015 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Early in the morning, there may be concerns about a disagreement between companies, parties, sides, or countries — this may involve obstacles from the government or some strict rules (esp. on travel or communication), and/or mining. In the morning, there may also be concerns about banks (US and China) or stock market (China).
Sep 23-24 (though possibly as early as 22): There may be an important announcement about an agreement, peaceful resolution, joining of the forces (e.g., between companies or countries), some union, or a balanced decision. Alternatively, some prominent leader (likely male or a masculine woman) may address the need for an agreement or a fair/balanced resolution at some large public gathering.
SEP 23, 2015 (WED): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).
Sep 23-25 look stressful — some negotiations may not work out (probably because government or large corporations will block it), parties will have a hard time finding a diplomatic resolution, progress/movement forward may stall causing a major headache/frustration. The developments will likely relate to long distance travel (esp. by train), immigration, higher education, and any foreign connections — for ex., Siryan refugees are prohibited from traveling by train [at all; possibly due to an accident or concerns about hygiene/diseases], some engine malfunctions because it is old/faulty, fire is hard to stop, etc. At the same time, there may be concerns about banks (USA and China) and/or stock market (China). Lastly, there may be increased news about iron/steel (probably stressful or about shortages), mines and railroads (possible accidents or protests/strikes), as well as earthquakes and fires.
SEP 24, 2015 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (65-70%).
SEP 25, 2015 (FR): Very strong influence; market will probably go down (70-75%).
