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: Jan 1 – Feb 28, 2016 and mid-July through mid-Aug, 2016: Increased likelihood of floods, major snowfalls, storms, rains, etc, including floods from dams giving up. The key dates (+- several days to two weeks) are Jan 31 and Aug 2. This prediction is based on the transit of Jupiter to US Neptune. Hence, possible manifestations include expansion (Jupiter) of anything related to Neptune (water, chemicals, oil, pharmaceuticals, contagious diseases, religion, etc.) and the areas Neptune rules in the US chart (it’s in the 9th house of laws, foreign matters, and higher education and rules over the 4th house of land, security, food, and banks’ savings). Some possible examples include expansion of the oil industry and increased profits from oil, and expansion of or increased news about the following industries/areas: navy, beverages (esp. alcoholic), healthcare, drugs, chemicals, movies, music, and religion. For ex., an oil (or some chemical) spill spreads poisons in the water, oil pipe leaks, the number of navy bases increases, more navy ships are commissioned, pharmaceutical companies hit a jackpot with some drug, chemical companies expand their influence/inventory/product selection/etc., one or more contagious diseases spread unusually easily, and so on.
USA: January – November 2016 (esp. Jan 21 – Feb 19, Apr 11 – May 31, and Oct 19 – Nov 17) — improved stability of banks and financial institutions and opportunities to stabilize and make long-term plans. Slow but steady growth and improved confidence in long-term success. Entities that adopt a conservative cautious approach, reduce expenses, and reduce risky investments (especially overseas or in anything foreign) at this time will see improved stability and growth long-term. This period favors older established institutions.
USA: Apr 1 – May 1 (esp. Apr 6-7, 11-18) and then Aug 19-24 — electric cars, engines, aerospace, IT, telecoms, data processing, electricity, high tech gadgets, etc. will receive more attention that usual. There may be new initiatives or a new level of excitement about some new program, product, or solution. New initiatives will probably be related to a search for a new direction, military initiatives, and/or collaboration with partners. After Apr 18, the intensity of the push for increased activity in the related areas may subside for a few months; to be revived in August 2016. Around Aug 19-24, there may be another peak of activity; however, the project/initiative may face serious obstacles due to delays, breakdowns, something wearing out (e.g., old engine), or opposition (esp. from cautious/conservative forces that may resist innovation or the change in the status quo).
China: December, 2015 – August, 2016 (esp. around Dec 18, 2015; Jan 28, 2016; and Aug 03, 2016) — Positive developments, lucky breaks, expansion, and increased growth opportunities related to healthcare, pharmaceuticals, oil, minerals/chemicals, navy, and participation in multinational organizations. There may be increased profits, expansion of influence (e.g., acquiring or expanding businesses related to mining, drugs, chemicals, or minerals), beneficial international laws [that is, laws that help the country to expand business], increased number of “friends” who support the country’s positions, increased number of organizations that the country is a member of, and/or improved shipping conditions (particularly internationally, via rail-way, and transportation of goods related to the areas above, such as oil or chemicals).
China: Jan 11 – Oct 28, 2016 (peak influence around Jan 20, Jun 2, and Oct 19, 2016) — decreased stock market volatility and/or increased attention to implementing long-term controls to prevent market volatility, making long-term plans to enhance the stability of investments, developing long-term plans for “controlled”/“structured”/reliable/solid investments in stock market, entertainment, movies, casinos, racing, etc.
China: Jan 27 – Nov 24, 2016 (peak influence around Feb 8, May 12, and Nov 3, 2016) — increased attention to implementing long-term controls over banks and financial institutions to ensure stability of investments, reliable steady income flow, prevent losing the accumulated wealth, secure cash, etc. Specific actions may involve increasing various limits, introducing additional controls or structure, entering into organizations (or adding new members to existing ones) to secure additional support, adding more governmental oversight, etc.
China: January – November 2016 (esp. Jan 8 – Feb 5, May 13 – Jun 24, and Oct 1 – Nov 2) — troubles and slow-downs related to old unresolved issues, hidden problems, diseases, healthcare, water/navy, oil, and/or problems with partners. Some structures or entities are old, inflexible, and outlived their usefulness. The old approach is holding back the new growth and is being discarded through a series of disruptive/difficult periods. At the end of the third period (Oct 2016), some new improved structure should emerge that will help the country to grow in more healthy ways. In the process, old ways may be changed and old partnerships discarded. Steel industry, industries that manufacture some large machinery, mining industry, and large-scale construction businesses will experience a period of difficulties and will need to purge and become “lean”/discard anything that’s extra or old to keep growing.
China: 2018 will be a very important year — likely, the country will achieve significant success/profits and enhance its status on the world arena. Also likely are changes in participation in various organizations and one-on-one agreements/partnerships, as well as major developments in healthcare/medicine, secret programs, programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, movies, music, travel/transportation, and education.
China: 2018-2020 (esp. 2019) — major reform(s) in the following areas: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, treatment of elderly (end-of-life care), prisons, religion, chemicals, beverage industry, movie industry, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden activities (e.g., hacking) or on dissolving borders between larger groups/categories (e.g., creating hybrids, removing separation between bodies of water, developing new powerful chemical mixtures [possibly for nuclear power generation], developing new drugs that expand consciousness, blending modern and traditional medicine, etc.).
OIL: Given the relatively big drop in oil prices following the OPEC’s meeting on Dec 4, 2015, it looks like the exact Neptune/Saturn square (1st of the 3 exact transits) in the early Dec produced an intermediate MAX/TOP reversal point. I was expecting oil prices to hit a LOW in Nov/Dec (Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), but was also expecting a significant up move shortly after the exact transit. It now looks like there may be a slow gradual rise instead or possibly even a slight drop till the final 3rd exact square in Sep 2016. I would wait until after the final exact square next Sep to see a major upward jump.
With the Neptune/Saturn aspect slowly separating from the exact square through March 25, 2016, the down influence on oil will gradually lessen. Starting from the end of March, the two planets will slowly move toward another precise square due in June. So, Jan-Apr 2016 may see the prices rebound somewhat. Then, starting as early as May 2016 (or even late April) and especially in the summer through Sep of 2016 (with Aug 22 to Sep 23 being quite significant), we may see a major turmoil related to oil [production/sales/distribution/etc.] and a serious price depression. The 2nd of the 3 “exact” Saturn/Neptune squares will occur around Jun 17, 2016. A few weeks before/after that date should see significant events and market moves related to oil (esp., June 3-6, 8, 16-17, 19-21, 29-30). While an OPEC meeting is set for June 4, June 17 looks like a likely date for some important OPEC announcement.
Once Neptune/Saturn square begins to separate for good in the fall of 2016, there should be a major price reversal in Sep or Oct 2016 (I believe from a BOTTOM/LOW to up) followed by a multi-year recovery (or at least a steady multi-year trend in the same direction; I believe it will be up). Two/three weeks before/after September 9, 2016, the time of the last exact Saturn/Neptune square, will likely be especially significant (esp. Aug 21-26; Sep 1, 9-10, 12-13, 18, 30; Oct 3-5, 10-12, 15-18). After that, I would look at the conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (2025-26; esp. late Jan-Feb 2026) for the next big top/bottom of the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil. At that time, Neptune will also be leaving its own sign, Pisces, which will make that time period even more significant wrt oil prices and anything related to Neptune, including chemicals (esp. chemical weapons or weapons that work through affecting mind/mood/etc.), drugs/pharmaceuticals (esp. drugs used as weapons), water, spirituality, etc.
Given that Neptune also rules chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing (with drugs or through alternative approaches), etc., and that Saturn rules big corporations and governments, businesses related to the areas above (esp. large corporations or governmental entities) will experience major changes in their structure, profit schemes, popularity of their products, and/or manufacturing technologies around the same times. For ex., the Dow Chemical and DuPont merger is a good representation of the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. I expect we may hear more about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes as well around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., summer-Sep 2016, and then in 2025-26).
MAY 16, 2016 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%).
May 16 – June 3 (esp. May 23-26) — increased tensions or concerns related to immigration, healthcare, and difficulties in sustaining/expanding international connections. Concerns about international borders and border controls are likely. Also likely, concerns about the reduction in international trade and/or slowing of long-distance travel and shipments. From the end of May, these concerns will gradually involve or relate to oil and will get intertwined with re-emerging worries about oil prices/production/sales/shipment.
USA: Increased probability of concerns about the food supply, motherhood-related initiatives, as well as communication/transportation businesses (esp. airplanes), monetary policies, IT industry, and retail sales. The origin of the concerns could be labor force, healthcare, or some numbers (e.g., a revised report with more precise numbers). Some issue may receive a clarification which will be perceived unfavorably (e.g., the revised numbers don’t look as good), and/or, industry leader(s) may make a move that will be perceived at odds with the needs of the industries above.
Additionally, there may be greater than usual fluctuations in the price of silver and/or gold.
China: The entire week — as last two weeks, increased probability of positive news about oil, navy, healthcare, medicine, some stealth program, participation in international organizations, long-distance travel and shipment. The source of the news or the reason for the developments in the areas above will likely be farming, food industry, real estate investments, desire to improve domestic security (incl. physical and food safety), and secure banks’ capital (e.g., banks investing in businesses related to international shipping or farming). Shipments and sales of food- and medicine-related products could receive more attention than usual. This may involve long-term agreements with partners, scientific research, and improving industrial base to expand areas above long-term (esp. medicine and healthcare, as well as oil, navy, and secret research or spying programs).
China: The entire week (esp. May 18) — Increased focus on communication/transportation businesses (esp. airplanes), monetary policies, IT industry, and military-related projects (esp. related to airplanes, flying, IT, and data exchange). The developments will focus on long-term projects (e.g., laying cables, building railroad, creating infrastructure, etc.). The initiatives will aim to reorganize something [to cut costs, purge excess] and build a solid foundation for future ventures. This may involve entering into long term agreements with international partners and/or securing help from technical experts/scientists (e.g., to build stronger more technically advanced weapons, esp. anything that flies or involves data transmission).
China: May 16 (pre-open ) — Increased focus on financial laws and international connections (e.g., profits from overseas clients, tourism, long distance shipping, etc.). Also, increased news about the banks’ capital, homeland security, as well as the real estate, land, farming, or food production. The nature of the news could be negotiations about the costs and profits — something may be valued differently than expected leading to a minor disappointment or a less favorable deal.
MAY 17, 2016 (TUE): Medium mixed influence; market may possibly go up (55%).
USA: Increased probability of positive news about oil, navy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, beverage companies. The news may be related to developments in the labor force, healthcare, or data reports. The value of companies or products related to the areas above may increase. Also, there is a greater than usual probability of positive news about banks/financial organizations, debt/loans, and nuclear power or recycling plants (e.g., profits increased, some issue was successfully resolved, or a loan has been easily secured).
China: Increased probability of positive news about oil, navy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, some stealth program, telecoms, aerospace programs, and/or participation in international organizations. The news may be due to developments in communication/transportation businesses (esp. airplanes or data exchange), monetary policies, retail sales, and/or IT projects. For ex., some project involving info exchange brings profits to the pharmaceutical companies; sales of telecom services increase; or, improvements in transportation industry facilitate travel over water.
China: May 17-20 (esp. the 18th) — Increased news about discussions or negotiations related to communication/transportation businesses (esp. airplanes), monetary policies, IT industry, and military-related projects (esp. related to airplanes, flying, IT, and data exchange). The news will likely be negative — for. ex., about stressful negotiations or disagreements.
MAY 18, 2016 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%). In the morning — increased probability of stand-offs, broken or surprise agreements, and arguments (esp. over military or aerospace-related projects). There may also be disruptions in IT services, telecommunications, or electric supply (e.g., a social media website experiences IT problems).
China: Increased news about the banks’ capital, homeland security, as well as the real estate, land, farming, or food production. The focus may be on costs/profits and financial deals. For ex., there may be increased discussions about the value of real estate or about the food production costs.
MAY 19, 2016 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).
MAY 20, 2016 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is the strongest in the late afternoon.
May 21 – 24 — Over the weekend, May 21-22, there may be growing concerns about oil, with calls for imposing limitations on oil production. There will also likely be a push for a more sober/realistic evaluation of the developments in these areas: oil, navy, beverages, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, poisons, and immigration. On Sat-Sun, there may be increased military tensions, which will likely continue on Mon-Tue (May 23-24). May 23-24 look strongly down with increased discussions about military spending (esp. on communication/transportation, incl. airplanes) or financial losses due to military developments/tensions/mistakes. Increased possibility of accidents (incl. military/airplane-related and chemicals/oil/water-related).
