Global: Nov 17 – Dec 2, 2016 (esp. Nov 23-25, 2016), then Mar 23 – Apr 7, 2017 (esp. Mar 30-31, 2017), and finally Jul 28 – Aug 11, 2017 (esp. Aug 3-4, 2017) — larger than usual market moves and a significant reversal (probably from a MAX reached around peak days of Nov 23-24, 2016 as well as Mar 30-31, 2017 and Aug 3-4, 2017 to down in the days following the respective peak days). Increased focus on legal issues, lawyers, power struggles (over legal issues) or ethical problems due to hidden issues, spying, secrets, taxes, and/or [life] insurance. Additionally, there may be increased focus on nuclear power, recycling plants, birth control, reproductive issues, end-of-life issues (e.g., is assisted suicide legal), and businesses that deal with trash disposal. Some issue(s) related to the areas above may reach a critical mass and an intervention may be necessary to fix it. Or, there may be a major agreement/deal/law/legal decision that affects related matters for months to come — for ex., a law is passed on how to handle recycling of certain types of radioactive trash, nuclear plant may be sued, or, a legal ruling is passed on how to deal with spies or entities who handle secrets.
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 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 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).
Global: The overall trend may be a slow build up to a fairly major reversal (probably a MAX/TOP) reached around Nov 23-24. Market moves approaching those dates may become larger in size or significance. Government projects and projects that involve cooperation/partnerships may undergo significant changes — new partnerships/agreements may run into push back from the government(s) and/or such partnerships will pressure government(s). Also, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may see expansion and new opportunities, although these may come with some caveat (e.g., wrong timing, excessive optimism that leads to overspending, too much pressure that leads to something breaking, etc.). Additionally, there may be increased focus on improving old structures (buildings and infrastructure like bridges and tunnels; structures may be related to nuclear power generation) — either through massive expansive projects that aim to improve them, or, because something breaks (e.g., due to massive earthquakes or old age). Finally, there may be increased focus on issues related to taxes, loans, nuclear power, recycling, and insurance — these too may begin to undergo significant changes due to some laws or expansion — see the first general Global entry at the top of the post — this influence will continue into 2017.
USA: Excessive optimism/jubilation and/or some other excess, broken records, disrespect for limits, increased attention to legal issues and lawyers. The issues above will likely arise from or will be associated with presidential elections, leadership, government, large corporations, and/or country’s status in the world. Extremes and excess of some sort are likely, so expect greater than usual market fluctuations. This influence is stronger early in the week.
USA: Favorable time for businesses/projects related to military, engines, cars, aerospace, moving metal objects, and any innovative high tech projects (e.g., robots, sensors, wiring for data processing, high tech weapons, etc.). We may hear about innovations related to engines, computers, signal processing (esp. for military purposes, aerospace industry, or electric devices), or moving parts used for electric cars or to generate electricity. The developments will likely be subtle along the lines of re-evaluating methodology or fixing issues to improve products/services.
China: Positive news about the banks, financial organizations, stock market, investments, taxes, and entertainment industry (e.g., related to movies, theater, circus, sports events, casinos, and racetracks) — expansion to new domains, lucky developments, increased investments, acquisition of new businesses, new contracts, increased profits, etc. Strong focus on the movie industry as well as oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, beverages, and navy — expansion, new acquisitions, super successful projects, greater recognition, etc. This influence is the strongest on Nov 17-18.
NOV 14, 2016 (MON): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (55-60%).
Nov 14-15 — Favorable days for communication/transportation industry, incl. cars, aerospace, and any innovative high tech projects. We may hear about agreements/contracts involving international partners and pertaining to engines, computers, or moving parts used for electric cars or to generate electricity.
USA: There may be concerns about financial organizations/banks or the country’s spending — some initiatives may be seen as too expensive, value of certain projects may be questioned, funding to some projects may be cut, etc. Affected areas will likely involve international agreements and partnerships. The reason for the reevaluations or concerns will likely have to do with new goals and vision for the future — the focus will be on the country’s own interests which may be seen as at odds with some partnership agreements.
China: Early am and pre-open — focus on healthcare and government projects/jobs — there may be new initiatives (esp. related to women, motherhood, food, and homeland security). Also, Nov 14-15 — focus on country’s status in the world and its leaders or leadership. China may feel energized and be recognized for leadership in some area (possibly related to lending, finance, investments, loans, etc.). Additionally or alternatively, the focus on lending or investment practices may reveal some hidden agenda or shine light on projects that have previously been hidden — for ex., some secrete financial deal may be revealed, or, some previously overlooked/hidden investment strategy of China will be revealed as being more successful than expected.
NOV 15, 2016 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%).
China: Nov 15-16 — focus on stock market and entertainment industry, incl. movies. Some new agreements/acquisitions may be announced; likely, beneficial for China.
NOV 16, 2016 (WED): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (60%). The up influence is based on the expectation of over-reaction to and excessive optimism about some new fiscal initiatives or changes in partnerships/agreements in the US. Alternatively, the market may go down on profit taking — some US entities will probably cash in nicely today (again, this will likely be related to international partnerships/projects/agreements).
USA: Increased focus on the country’s financial goals and values as opposed to the interests of its partners [and enemies]. Some agreements, partnerships, and projects may be re-evaluated to make sure they are not overpriced and still beneficial to the US; new agreements may be entered into or old agreements may be cancelled. Spending on some projects involving international partners may either be questioned, or if approved, may meet with disapproval of a large segment of population as it may be seen as hurting country’s self interest.
NOV 17, 2016 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%). The down influence will be the strongest late pm.
Nov 17-18 — Increased news about the movie industry as well as oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, beverages, and navy. Some new agreements or sales in related areas are likely. The news will probably cause the market to drop first (Thur through about Fr am, possibly through the end of day Fr) followed by an up move (Fr pm or Mon).
Nov 17-18 look significant. There may be an important meeting or a public announcement pertaining to oil, deception/lies/secrets, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, navy, beverages, or movie industry. A deal may be signed or broken, and/or there may be legal concerns (possibly because of international involvement, like having multiple foreign partners or transporting something internationally). Communication among international partners or legal entities may involve confusion and the agreement will either not be reached, or, it ill be one-sided where some entities “win” while others “lose.”
China: Nov 17-18 — strong focus on the movie industry as well as oil, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, beverages, and navy — spending on related projects or new investments are likely. The investments/deals may be seen as somewhat ill-timed, excessive, “sneaky” (having occurred in secret), or developments may undermine prior investments/deals (by China or by others).
NOV 18, 2016 (FR): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Likely a reversal day — there may be a MIN (drop on Fr followed by up on Mon, Nov 21; or the reversal may be from down on Fr morning to up on Fr afternoon).
>>>> Quick glance at the weeks following US presidential elections (repeated form last week):
As transiting Jupiter will begin to square US Saturn (rule of the 2nd house of financial institutions and symbol of established order, authority, government, large corporations, etc.) shortly after the elections, there may be a fall out from the elections that affects financial institutions. The effect may be that the established order or established institutions fall under legal scrutiny. Some legal disputes may go on, unwelcome laws may be implemented, or, there may be some [legal] actions that test banks and their stability. Alternatively, there may be conflict at the governmental level between entities trying to enforce some laws and established authorities. For ex., legal disputes involving governmental officials, legal action rattling established authorities, protests against previously implemented controls/limits, removing old regulations, removing old authorities, etc. This influence will be the strongest around Nov 11 to Nov 25 (esp Nov 18). The issue(s) may remain unresolved until the summer of 2017 and/or arise again that summer, mostly in late April through July 2017 (esp. May 08 and July 12).
With legal issues (related to banks and/or country’s leaders) possibly unfolding in the background through next summer, the US will also be experiencing transiting Saturn (control, old established authority, government) square (conflict) to US Mars (military) from late Dec 2016 through Oct of 2017 (see note below about Jul 15-16, 2017). I haven’t finished analyzing long-term transits, but the gist of the influence appears to be that there may be tensions or problems involving US military at the same time as US banks and/or leaders could be dealing with possible legal issues.
>>>> 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, chemical weapons, 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.
Is it possible to receive your weekly financial market predictions on a sunday evening instead of waiting for monday morning/afternoon. Reason for asking is that i trade the SPX and monitor the Asain market/SPX futures opening on a sunday at 7pm.
Let me see if I can get these out sooner and/or cover the entire month in advance…
^^ I hate it when someone offers something (for everyones good) and then one (Kevin Wickins) comes along and makes more demands.
Thank you Tolstunka for this great blog.
No worries.. I used to write these as monthly predictions… may get back to that so I can have more time for other amazing things on weekends, lol
