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 28, 2015 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up influence is stronger in the afternoon.
USA: Increased potential of positive news related to communications and transportation industries, incl. telecoms and aerospace-related businesses (e.g., that some agreement was reached and parties were able to reach a compromise).
USA and China: Increased news about banks/financial institutions, stock market (China only), and foreign debt/loans (USA only) in the first half of the day. The news may be slightly stressful, but probably of relatively minor consequence.
SEP 29, 2015 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).
USA: On Sep 29-30, there may be positive (that is, positively received by general public) announcements about banks/financial institutions, debt, loans, interest rates, insurance, and/or taxes. The news may come out at some public event, gathering, or a conference.
SEP 30, 2015 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).
OCT 1, 2015 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%).
Oct 1-2 (esp. late pm on the 2nd): Increased news about silver and gold; possibly larger than usual move in prices and/or a minor reversal (likely from a low point to up).
OCT 2, 2015 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).
China: Increased likelihood of news related to stock market and the country’s vision for the future — the news may be mildly upsetting or surprising (e.g., there is rapid change in direction of some negotiations or a surprising agreement/contract). An agreement may be reached (or broken off) or a judgment may be made to balance something perceived as too risky or unstable.
China: The entire month of Oct, esp. Oct 12-22, there is an increased likelihood of distressing news about stock market.
Oct 5-6 (Mon-Tue) to Oct 7 (Wed) may see a reversal and big market moves. The direction of the reversal will probably be from down on Oct 5 to up in the afternoon of Oct 6, or, from down on Oct 5-6 to up on Oct 7. Oct 5-6 look stressful, or at least filled with important news; large market move is highly likely. Very strong focus on water/navy, oil, chemicals, and healthcare/pharmaceuticals (news will either be stressful, such as about an escalation of military activities in open waters, or, the news will be about the change in the value of related entities).
Oct 9 (Fr), esp. late pm, can also see a strong market move. This can be a reversal day (direction TBD). There will likely be increased news from China (probably positive and related to manufacturing, esp. anything that uses steel products) and news about various agreements/contracts/negotiations.
Oct 14 (Wed) — Important day in general and a day of increased news from China. The news from China will likely focus on (a) manufacturing and steel products as above, though this time the news may be less positive or even stressful, and (b) oil, pharmaceuticals, pollution, secret activities, chemicals, etc. There could also be news about China making a strong move to strengthen/organize its military or mobilize military to deal with an earthquake or a situation that involves moving soil/rocks/metals (like a building collapse, mine accident, road blocked by a rock, etc.).
Oct 15-16 (Th-Fr) — strong influence days; increased likelihood of a large market move (probably down); likely a MIN/bottom followed by a reversal on Mon.
Oct 22 (Th) — potentially a stressful day (market down), in part due to the stressful news about Chinese stock market.
Oct 30 (Fr) — potentially a stressful day for the USA market (market down). This may possibly be due to the stressful news about the Chinese stock market and/or concerns about the US banks/financial institutions. News about oil, military activities, and navy may increase as well.
Week of Nov 23 (Thanksgiving week in the USA) — as mentioned before, a rather important week. Super strong focus on oil, chemicals, steel, water (e.g., floods), navy, pharmaceuticals, etc. A major reversal in the value of the related businesses/stocks/commodities is likely, probably due to concerns about shortages (actual or artificially created through, for example, introducing sanctions/laws). Nov 23 (Mon) may see strong currency fluctuations as well (#forex #EUR-USD).
