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.
NOV 2, 2015 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%).
On Nov 2-3, there may be increased emphasis in the news on sports/exercise, healthy physical activities in general (e.g., dancing), female athletes, and people or activities that involve blending of genders in some way (e.g., transgender individuals). Also, increased likelihood of positive news about healthcare and workforce.
USA: Nov 2-5 (esp. the 4th) — increased attention to the military activities with focus on global status and accomplishments. Some military campaign (new or ongoing) may attract more global attention than usual. Military activities may affect how the country is perceived on the world-wide arena.
China: Nov 2-4 — increased likelihood of news about an improving situation related to the status in the world and/or being recognized as an authority. This will probably be connected to a power play that affects relationships with other countries and/or agreements. The source of the news will probably be some new innovative and/or surprising approach to military activities, leadership, high-tech communications, and/or aerospace.
NOV 3, 2015 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (65%). The up prediction is based largely on the expectation of positive news from the US.
USA: Nov 3-4 — increased attention given to financial organizations and financial successes of some sort (e.g., improved profits and cash flow) with focus on improved global status, accomplishments, and authority. The news will likely be positive and help improve how the country is perceived on the world-wide arena. Positive news may also come out about the workforce, healthcare, and social benefits.
NOV 4, 2015 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).
NOV 5, 2015 (TH): Medium-strong mixed influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up prediction is based largely on the expectation of positive news from the US. The market direction may change to down in the afternoon.
Globally, on Nov 5 and 6, there may be concerns or increased news in general about oil, water (e.g., bad weather/flood), navy, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. If these concerns prevail over positive news from the US, the market may go down on Nov 5 (esp. later in the day) and/or Nov 6 (esp. early in the day).
USA: Increased probability of positive news about the relationships with other countries, agreements, international expansion, and/or expectations for future growth. Other possible areas of positive news include communication and transportation industries, esp. those connected to international locations.
NOV 6, 2015 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%). Increased probability of the market direction reversing from Nov 5 to Nov 6. The down influence is the strongest in the morning, incl. pre-open hours.
