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: Increased focus on various agreements, immigration, international travel/shipping, retail sales, communication/transportation businesses (incl. cars and airplanes), IT companies, aerospace-related businesses, telecoms, and electric companies.
With approaching trine between transiting Jupiter and Pluto, this is a good time for beginning large scale projects that will have a lasting effect of positive transformation. Areas that would benefit in particular include governments and large corporate entities, immigration, international travel/shipping, mining, security, and healthcare. Projects conceived at this time could lead to long term expansion and profitable transformation.
Also, continued focus on oil, navy, after, beverage, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceutical industry, music/movie industry, pollution, immigration, diseases, infestations, etc. The tensions may cause fluctuations in the price of related products and businesses. The direction will probably be down on some concerns (e.g., some drug trials were unsuccessful). Alternatively, the value may go up if some restrictions are placed to counteract the problems (e.g., some situation gets so bad that there is an intervention to block the source of trouble, which artificially creates shortages and brings the value up). Weather-wise, the issue of floods will likely also be discussed (incl. greater than usual water damage to structures, such as dams) with focus on using solid structures or some engineering innovations to stop the water.
JUN 20, 2016 (MON): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (65%). The down influence is especially strong globally; for the US, there may be positive news pre-open, but this influence may not be sufficient to move the market up. Greater than usual trading volume is likely as well. Concerns will center around immigration, agreements, IT companies, and communication/transportation companies and activities. The problems may stem from delays, cancellations, blockages, old structures deteriorating, poor communication, cancelled agreements, etc. Traveling (esp. by airplane and car) will likely be a major pain — expect huge delays, cancellations, etc.
June 20-25 (esp. 20-21) — There may be an important public announcement related to immigration, healthcare, international travel/shipping, and/or higher education (e.g., vaccinations of international travelers, data on shipment companies, details about immigration regulations, etc.).
China: June 14 – July 16 (esp. June 17-20 and July 10-11) — increased attention to the country’s status in the world with focus on military, weapons, aggressive/assertive actions, accidents (esp. involving moving parts and engines), fires, explosions, etc. In June, plans related to these issues may be developed or some initial actions may be taken; then, related developments may repeat or culminate around July 10-11.
JUN 21, 2016 (TUE): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). The up influence is stronger for the US.
June 21-22 — There may be increased focus on communication/transportation (e.g., phones, cars, and airplanes) industries, IT companies, aerospace-related businesses, telecoms, and electric companies — this could be related to some stress being put on moving parts (e.g., engine), surprises, accidents, or unexpected breakthroughs.
June 21-23 — Increased news days; the mood will likely be optimistic with tendency to excess in the areas of communication and transportation (e.g., many may find themselves making promises without thinking through all the details). There may be greater than usual focus on various agreements, retail sales, communication/transportation (e.g., phones, cars, and airplanes) industries, IT companies, immigration, healthcare, and higher education. The media may take any small piece of info and present it in an exaggerated way; some new social media memes/viral videos/photos/etc. may become super popular because of excessive sharing. Travel volume (both domestic and international) will likely increase as well, but there may be travel disruptions due to some excess (e.g., too many passengers). Given that the BREXIT vote is expected on the 23rd, people may vote based on overconfidence, promises that overlook specifics, excessive optimism, expectations of unrealistic consequences, voting without checking into details, etc. Thinking and communicating about specific/realistic details may be difficult at this time as there may be an overload of information and many may find it difficult to attend to all the details.
USA: Increased probability of positive news about partnership agreements, immigration, international travel/shipping, and/or higher education. The news may be about increased profits (e.g., about profitable international agreements or profits from businesses related to travel) or increased spending on related projects (e.g., on support for immigrants or students).
China: Increased probability of surprising news about the stock market, entertainment industry, or sports. Additionally, there may be concerns about agreements and/or healthcare/pharmaceuticals (e.g., delay in agreements, stalled negotiations, inconvenient agreements, delay in the approval of some drug, domestic regulations that negatively affect drug sales, etc.).
JUN 22, 2016 (WED): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). Likely, positive optimistic mood. Media overload; increased discussions and travel.
JUN 23, 2016 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go up (65%). The up influence is stronger for the US. The mood should still be relatively positive, but (globally) not as much as on the 22nd.
USA: Increased probability of positive news about earnings, financial institutions, partnership agreements, participation in international organizations, healthcare, government sector (e.g., post office), and workforce (e.g., being recognized as a leader by the countries, increased profits, increased popularity, finding a solution to a problem, etc.).
JUN 24, 2016 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). The down influence is mainly due to dissipating energy of the positive transit to the US chart that will occur on the 23rd. Daily transits by faster planets do not promise anything terrible (e.g., a market crash).
As for the slower-moving planets, the nearly precise tine between Jupiter and Pluto today indicates that this is a good time for any new ventures, expansion, and transformation (whatever the outcome of the BREXIT vote). At the same time, the ongoing Neptune/Saturn square indicates that this is the time of erosion/weakening of some solid structures, rules, and barriers (e.g., government and large corporations, as well as literally buildings, dams, walls, etc.) due to pollution/water/lies/deception/lack of clarity/etc. While both of the aspects are nearly precise today, these are slow-moving formations whose effect spans months/years.
