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).
WEEK OVERVIEW: Major increase in the focus on oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pollution, diseases, navy, water, beverages, music and movie-related businesses. Important developments and price fluctuations are highly likely. This influence is especially strong on Wed-Fr.
China: The entire week (esp. Jun 2-3) — Increased concerns about problems (e.g., delays, shortages, and breakdowns) related to oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pollution, diseases, navy, water, beverages, music and movie-related businesses, as well as any secretive programs. The value of such projects/businesses may be questioned by leaders and investors, financing of such projects may experience interruptions, an old/outdated initiative or agreement may fall apart/be cancelled, or an old structure may crumble. Additionally, there is an increased chance of an earthquake or a mining accident.
MAY 30, 2016 (MON): US markets closed.
MAY 31, 2016 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). Focus on agreements bet. governments and/or large corporations — those should proceed smoothly and may focus on banks, farming, spying (esp. via planes or IT programs), taxes, mining, nuclear power, and recycling.
USA: Increased news about IT, aerospace, electricity/power generation, electric cars, telecoms, etc. The news will likely be positive (e.g., some program receives funding, business value increases, an IT gadget sales increase, a product upgrade is announced, a task is completed successfully, etc.).
JUN 01, 2016 (WED): Very strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%). The down influence is stronger in the late afternoon.
Jun 1-3 — reversals in direction, increased tensions, strong market moves. The two most likely scenarios I see will be (A) a reversal from Tue to Wed/Th (up to down) followed by an even larger drop on Fri. Alternatively, (B) Wed-Th are up days, followed by the drop on Fr. While Fr. looks like a down day either way, Wed/Th could still be up although on the “negative” news (e.g., worries about shortages, limitations, or delays cause the prices to go up) rather than on positive/optimistic news about the economy doing well.
Jun 1-3 — Increased focus on oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pollution, diseases, navy, water, beverages, music and movie-related businesses. There may be some confusion, demands for clarification on where businesses in the industries above are heading, greater than average price changes, developments involving leaders in the industries, re-evaluation of the companies’ or products’ worth, etc. The source of the developments will be news about the problems or restructuring (esp. initiated by the governments or large corporations). These problems/restructuring will affect the prices/profits/value of the related products and businesses (e.g., problems with oil deliveries lead to increased oil prices, outbreak of some illness leads to increased demand for drugs, restructuring in large corporations that produce chemicals leads to increased value of chemical products, etc.).
JUN 02, 2016 (TH): Very strong influence; market may possibly go down (65-70%). Continuation of the developments from Wed in the areas related to oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc. Today, the energy around these areas is even stronger. While the energy is quite stressful today (hence, the down prediction), it is also possible that the limitations (e.g., shortage of oil) will increase the related products’ value.
China: Jun 2-3 — Increased news about real estate, farming, international travel/shipping, higher education, monetary policy, and banks’ capital. The news may focus on sales, agreements, and negotiations — for ex., sales of land, agreements about transporting goods, international student exchange, etc. The nature of the news may be neutral or slightly negative; there may be mild concerns that some domestic developments (e.g., monetary policy) undermine profits from international connections (e.g., by affecting international trade).
China: Jun 2-3 — Increased concerns about delays or problems (e.g., shortages) related to oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pollution, diseases, navy, water, beverages, music and movie-related businesses, as well as any secretive programs. The value of such projects/businesses may be questioned by leaders and investors, or, financing of such projects may experience interruptions. At the same time, there may be positive news about the stock market — it may receive financial support of some sort (probably from the banks or from a source of money that is viewed as protecting national security [rainy day fund of sorts]).
JUN 03, 2016 (FR): Very strong influence; market may possibly go down (75%). A day of increased trading volume (probably a sell-off to capture profits). Increased concerns about the same areas as on Wed/Th (oil, chemicals, etc.) as well as financial problems (shortage of cash, non-payment of debt, etc.), international agreements, long-distance travel, international shipping, immigration, higher education, and legal disputes. There will be a sense of imbalance with something being over-abundant while something else being in short supply. Because of the imbalance, there may be a stale-mate where a project can’t move forward. If an agreement (esp. international) is reached today, it may heavily favor one side over the other.
Possible examples of the imbalance: Too much money is available that is not being spent, many nice cars or tech gadgets (e.g., phones) have been produced but they cannot be sold overseas (or international sales fall), an excessively large investment is made into the healthcare-related business to solve a pharmaceuticals/diseases/pollution problem but the problem is not what it seems [the problem is elsewhere or not large enough to justify the investment], an excessively large investment is made into the chemicals-related business under the overly optimistic expectations which can lead to unexpected problems, etc.
