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.
China: The entire month of Oct, esp. Oct 12-22, there is an increased likelihood of distressing news about the stock market.
OCT 5, 2015 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).
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).
This influence relates, in part, to the transiting Mars/Neptune opposition. It’s curious that “The Martian” has been released right during this aspect, as Mars relates to Mars (duh) and Neptune relates to the movie industry. I wonder if the timing is coincidental or if Hollywood execs have astrologers on staff. 🙂
The entire week, Oct 5-9, there may be increased focus in the news on the expansion of governmental entities (or expansion of their regulatory powers) responsible for regulating governments and large corporations. There may be news about workforce and/or healthcare (esp. related to reproduction) that will benefit these governmental structures as well as large corporate entities or somehow give them more power.
Additionally, Oct 5-16, we may hear about improvements and expansion related to mining, steel, and manufacturers of some heavy equipment that uses iron/steel (e.g., that the number of the mines increased, conditions in the mines improved, that they produce more ore, etc.).
USA: Oct 5-6, may see increased stressful news about banks, financial institutions, loans, taxes, insurance, and rates. Some major change in this area may be under way (something that has been unfolding during the past few years and will continue to take place in the upcoming months; am guessing it’s related to Fed Reserve’s rate adjustments/QE). The news may come out highlighting negative impacts of this transformation on the country’s image and/or status on the world arena.
China: Oct 5-6 (esp. 6) may see increased news about investments, stock market, loans, rates, insurance, taxes, etc. The news may come out highlighting the need to regulate something to avoid frequent direction changes, to avoid hidden communication, to prevent contracts based on incorrect information/lies, etc.
China: Oct 5-9 may see increased news about breakthroughs in medicine, spread of some illness, expansion of the navy and/or industries that deal with chemicals, and/or news about flooding.
OCT 6, 2015 (TUE): Very strong influence; market may possibly go down (70%). This will likely be a reversal day (unless the bottom was already reach Mon) with the market hitting a LOW/Bottom today (esp. in the morning) and reversing to go up either in the afternoon or on Wed, Sep 7.
OCT 7, 2015 (WED): Medium-strong mixed influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%). While there are both positive and stressful influences today, I believe the up move is more likely to compensate for stressful Mon-Tue. The up move may not last too long or be very strong.
Additionally, on Oct 7-9, there may be an important announcement about some partnership — this will likely occur at a big gathering like a convention/conference and will involve a merger and forming an alliance, or, companies/countries breaking an agreement, splitting, and parting ways. This may involve some restructuring and splitting the company to improve growth.
China: Increased likelihood of news about banks/financial institutors. The news may be positive and/or highlight ongoing/planned improvements (e.g., some problem was discovered but it is being addressed promptly). The issue may also relate to investments in oil and/or pharmaceutical/chemical industry, or, it may relate to navy (e.g., plans are made to expand/improve this area).
OCT 8, 2015 (TH): Medium-strong mixed influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The morning may see an up moved followed by a down move in the afternoon.
OCT 9, 2015 (FR): Strong mixed influence; market may possibly go down (60%). The down influence is stronger in the late afternoon and may be due to concerns about the availability of money (e.g., profits fall short of expectations, forecast is gloomy, money flow is restricted, etc.). At the same time, there may be positive news about manufacturing (esp. heavy equipment), mining, and/or steel industries. This can be a reversal day with the market reversing from Fr, Oct 9, to Mon, Oct 12, probably from low on Fr to an up move on Mon. The time of the reversal depends on the [likely positive] news about mining, manufacturing, etc., which may come from China — if the news comes out on Fr, we may see an up move on Fr. Else, the up move will probably occur on Mon (the positive news are more likely on Mon).
China: Oct 9-16 — There will likely be increased news (probably positive and related to manufacturing, esp. anything that uses steel products, as well as mining) and news about various agreements/contracts/negotiations. The positive news are the most likely on Oct 12-13.
