Global: Jun-Oct 2016 (esp. Aug 22-Sep23) — Expect increased focus on oil, navy, water, 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.
With the nearly precise Neptune/Saturn square going on the entire summer, there will likely be a number of stressful events related to the areas symbolized by the two planets. I already touched on it in the OIL predictions below, but here are a few more possible scenarios. This is likely the time of erosion/weakening (square aspect brings with it stress and breakage of existing patterns) of some solid structures, rules, and barriers (e.g., government and large corporations, as well as literally buildings, dams, walls, etc. — “Saturn” things) due to pollution/water/lies/deception/lack of clarity/etc. (“Neptune” things). Issues could include floods due to water going over or through the walls, dam failures, problems with construction projects due to water, problems with construction of any solid structures that go over/under water, pollution of water due to oil and chemical spills, increase in diseases infestations (esp. due to water/dampness including water-living organisms and poisons in the water), disruptions with oil transportation (esp. over/under water), transformations of large corporate entities that deal with oil/chemicals/pharmaceuticals/music/movies, and changes in the government rulings related to the same matters (oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, drugs, lies, fraud, pollution, navy, water, music, etc.).
Concrete examples from the news:
—>The BREXIT vote (rebellion against the established governmental structures due to the loss of trust).
—>Investigation into the Brazilian mine collapse that polluted a major river and killed at least 17 people. The iron ore mine’s tailings dam collapsed last November (during the first Saturn/Neptune square approach). On June 10, 2016 (second Saturn/Neptune square), federal police in Brazil presented evidence of their seven month long investigation. Shares of the BHP Billiton, which co-owns the mining giant’s Samarco accused of willful misconduct, suffered a big drop. (https://www.thestreet.com/story/13604333/1/bhp-billiton-bhp-stock-down-on-dam-failure-probe-results.html)
—>In the United States, the National Marine Fisheries Service introduced new regulations on imports of seafood which would become effective in September (http://www.strtrade.com/news-publications-seafood-import-monitoring-permit-proposed-020516.html). The proposed rule (Saturn) aims to reduce (Saturn forming a square to another planet) seafood fraud (double Neptune; curiously, Neptune is now in its own sign Pisces — so double Neptune is right on).
—>More from the US: Last week, a popular North Carolina water park closed after brain-destroying amoeba was found in the water and 1 person died (http://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/n-c-whitewater-park-closes-after-deadly-amoeba-kills-teen-n598751).
As with OIL predictions, developments in the areas above will likely decrease in intensity and/or businesses resume normal functioning, etc. after the final Saturn/Neptune square in September of 2016. Moreover, things will probably get worse before they get better (with Aug 22 to Sep 23 being quite significant).
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: Jul 25 – Nov 27, 2016 (esp. Sep 25-30): Increased pressure from governmental forces and/or large corporations on the country’s leaders, push for transformation in the leadership course, transformation of the country’s status as a leader (particularly in the area of finance), transformation of fiscal governmental or corporate policies such that they affect US leaders or the country’s leadership position in the world. The source of push and/or the area of transformation is financial structure, fiscal policies, banks, and financial organizations. Also, increased focus on leaders in financial domain (esp. old, conservative, and inflexible) — there may be events that result in their transformation/transition of some sort (e.g., change of job, change of position/opinion, change of company, or possibly even death).
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: June 1 – Aug 28, 2016 (esp. June 24 – July 15; Aug 15 – Sep 5) and then March 22 – April 27, 2017 (esp. Apr 6-14) — Stressful news about communication/transportation businesses, aerospace projects/businesses (incl. airlines), electric power companies, electric car companies, IT businesses, and telecoms. The news may be about something braking, reaching a tension point, or about a breakthrough of some sort. Innovations are possible as well but they may not be immediately accepted or come as a solution to a problem (e.g., some emergency situation requires a unique approach to be fixed, so some company quickly comes up with a breakthrough solution). The issue will likely be domestic and may be related to real estate, food, security/safety, women’s issues, and/or banks’ capital. Disruptions in travel are more likely at this time as well (esp. by airplane or car) due to the increased potential for energy outages, electric system malfunctions, and accidents. There may be a related announcement on July 15, 2016. Also, issues that first pop up in June-July 2016 (Tesla accident with the driver using autopilot comes to mind) will likely have a follow up action/review in Aug-Sep 2016 and will be finally resolved/addressed in Apr 2017.
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).
Continuing, though gradually diminishing, focus on businesses, products, and events related to oil, chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution, contagious diseases, music, movies, photography, spirituality, healing, prisons, elderly care, and death (e.g., rights to facilitated suicide, life insurance, etc.), etc. The news will likely be stressful and/or about businesses undergoing significant changes, especially wrt leadership, structure, and boundaries/area of influence (e.g., restructuring, closures, introducing limitations, lowering expectations, endings, delays, confusion, losses, breakups, and mergers).
USA: All week — Continued increased focus on transformation of fiscal policies and/or major changes related to financial institutions. These changes can be fairly dramatic/transformational and affect the country’s leaders or leadership status on the world arena. Also, increased focus on leaders in financial domain (esp. old, conservative, and inflexible) — there may be events that result in their transformation/transition of some sort (e.g., change of job, change of position/opinion, change of company, or possibly even death).
USA: Sep 28 – Oct 12 (esp. Oct 4-7), 2016 — Increased focus on international agreements, collaboration, partnerships, as well as the country’s goals and vision for the future. There may be push for expansion, expansion beyond what will be sustainable long term, excessive optimism (e.g., about who is a partner and which agreements will hold/be beneficial), overlooking fine print in the agreements, overlooking downsides of some agreements or flaws in some partnerships, over-promising, taking greater than usual risks, etc. The mood may be overly optimistic leading to “gambling” rallies, or, there may be increased profit taking leading to a sizable market drop. Legal issues (esp. related to formation of partnerships or their resolution), lawyers, and law firms may be prominently featured in the news, in general.
China: Oct 10-17 — Beneficial time for international expansion, starting new grand-scale projects, establishing a leadership position, and improving status. Increased focus on the country’s leaders and the leadership role in the world, esp. related to investments, debt, and agreements/contracts. An issue may come up that relates to the balance of power — the focus may be on how to increase country’s power/leadership in a diplomatic way/through agreements and alliances, or, how to reach some agreement to change leadership/power dynamic. Focus on China may be fairly strong all week with the country’s international expansion or rise to prominence in some area being in focus.
OCT 10, 2016 (MON): n/a (thought that US markets were closed… oops).
OCT 11, 2016 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). The up influence is stronger in the morning. Busy news day with focus on international events, international media, long distance shipping, higher education, partnerships, and transportation/communication businesses in general. Also, increased focus on oil, esp. on governmental regulation of related activities or actions by large corporations to limit/control something.
Oct 11-13 (esp. the 13th) — Increased news about governmental initiatives related to military/weapons. There may be an announcement about a new military alliance or about problems in existing alliances/agreements. Some agreement may be broken off. Also, increased news about problems in transportation/communication businesses (esp. cars, airplanes, and engines), wind-related damage, and fires. These problems may be relatively minor and short-lived.
OCT 12, 2016 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).
USA: Oct 12-13 — Positive news about transportation/communication businesses (e.g., increased value, successful deals, improved sales, new popular products/services, etc.)
OCT 13, 2016 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). There may be concerns about mining or miners (e.g., due to an accident, communication problems, or a disagreement).
OCT 14, 2016 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Increased probability of surprises or unexpected events — likely related to leaders, agreements/partnerships, telecoms, electronics, power supply, or any electric devices (e.g., electric cars). For ex., sudden loss of power, unexpected break up of an alliance, some leader’s sudden rise to prominence, formation of an unusual alliance, one partner rebelling against the other because of ego clashes, etc.
USA: Increased possibility of minor negative news about the leaders (e.g., some organizations drop support or friends turn on them), partnerships, or agreements (e.g., verbal fights among leaders, disagreements among leaders, etc.). Increased discussions on how to handle investments, loans, taxes, debt, insurance, and rates — there may be disagreements on how to address these issues or some data may come out that cause concerns about these areas.
>>>> Glance ahead :
Global: Oct 17-20 (esp. 18) — Increased violence, protests, accidents, explosions, military activities, fires, attacks, etc. Also, increased probability of significant earthquakes, landslides, and accidents in the mines or nuclear power plants. Oct 18 could be a strong down day.
USA: Oct 18-20 — Increased focus on banks and financial organizations. Likely, concerns associated with participation in international organizations, networks, or partnerships.
Global: Oct 24-26 (esp. 25) — Strong focus on healthcare, pharma, drugs, chemicals, and oil — profits, value, and restructuring (mergers/separations, losses, limitations, etc.). There may be a reversal on Oct 25 with that day being a MIN (so from down on Oct 25 to up on 26).
USA: Oct 26-27 — Increased likelihood of mildly positive news about profits and expansion, esp. from mining, agreements/partnerships, cars/airplanes, and participation in international organizations.
Global: Oct 27-28 — Bad days for risky moves. Increased probability of accidents (esp. related to aerospace), explosions, fires, electric malfunctioning, problems with data transmissions, telecoms, electricity/power generation, and IT devices. Also, there may be a push for improvements in these areas (e.g., power generation methodology, electronic devices, space projects, etc.). Among investors, during this time there will be a tendency toward a more conservative approach, preserving value, limiting expenses, limiting exposure to risky investments (esp. international), increasing long-term investments, etc. — there may be concerns about availability of cash, or, simply a more pragmatic mood may predominate where investors focus on wealth preservation and reduce risks.
>>>> Still reviewing these but wanted to share significant dates ahead of time (repeated from last week):
Dec 31, 2016 — very tense day, globally and for the US — increased possibility of violence, accidents, tensions, fires, fights, disputes, currency value changes (USD possibly gains in value). Increased focus on oil, pharma, chemicals, pollution, navy, etc. Also in the US, concerns about navy, flooding, or about shortages or suppression of prices or flow of oil, chemicals, drugs, water, movies, photos, etc.
Jan 14-19 (esp. 16-18), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; also, earthquakes, explosions, problems with oil or oil businesses.
May 20-30 (esp. 22-23), 2017 — globally and for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, esp. related to navy; immigration issues; fights over immigration or militarized disputes over international borders.
Jul 15-16, 2017 — for the US — possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military, pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons (esp. navy-related). For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army, etc. Also, anger or disputes over banking [policies/actions] or push for change in the financial structure/banks. Also, problems with or restrictions imposed on businesses related to oil, pharma, chemicals, navy, movies, music, etc. July 15-16 dates are only one of the escalation points. These issues, in general, will likely be felt over the span of several months beginning 12/22/16 – 01/20/17, then 07/01/17 – 10/20/17.
