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 taxes, loans, insurance, 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 — these too may begin to undergo significant changes due to some laws or expansion. 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.
At the same times, there may be increased news about large-scale or long-term government projects — 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). 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, projects/businesses related to mining, construction, minerals, metals (esp. steel), rocks, sculpture, etc. may undergo some major changes — they may hear about 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.).
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: 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, pharmaceuticals, drugs, secret programs (esp. related to biology, medicine, end-of-life/death, mental health, prison population, supernatural powers, spiritual powers, etc.), programs related to religion/spirituality/beliefs, chemicals, navy, 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, navy, oil industry (or businesses related to power generation in general, such as nuclear or hydroelectric power plants), recycling industry, and any industries that rely on hidden/secret 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).
Global: 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).
USA: Possible escalation of military tensions, problems with military (e.g., accidents or scandals), and pressure or suppression of military forces or weapons. These will be most likely related to navy and/or chemical or drugs (e.g., naval drills or chemical weapons tests); there may also be some some coverup, deception, or lack of clarity. For ex., restriction on some weapons, gun control issues, weapons embargo, old weapons breaking, restructuring in the army by changing the established authorities or order, updates to infrastructure, etc. The reason for the changes would be because something is broken, old, brings losses, or has failed. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, problems related to navy-related staff (e.g., problematic behavior under influence of drugs or alcohol), ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, 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, and religious figures or behaviors. For ex., some related programs may end or leaders may step down/die. Lastly, problems, endings, removal/death of leaders, limitations or restrictions related to stock market, casinos/gambling, racing, sports, and entertainment industry (incl. movies and music) (e.g., some famous athlete experiences problems, or, trading activities are restricted by some limit, such as to reduce fast trading, slow things down, reduce risk, and introduce rules). This week, this influence will be the strongest at the beginning of the week.
USA: Increased focus on oil, chemicals, beverages, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution (of water or with chemicals), music/movies, religion, etc. Also, increased attention to real estate, farming, land, borders, and homeland security. For all the areas above, issues of scarcity, restrictions, and controls may come up and/or there may be problems with borders or limits. For ex., restrictions may be imposed on crossing borders or real estate sales, there may be problems with old walls/structures that hold back water (e.g., dam or reservoir), farm lands may experience drought, some drugs may be restricted/taken off market, concerns may come up that oil production has been limited too much, etc. Limits imposed on the related businesses at this time may be excessive and may end up putting excessive burden on some programs (to the point that they may need to be cancelled or significantly cut down). Also, businesses in the areas above may experience major restructuring or death/removal of leaders. This week, this influence will be the strongest at the end of the week.
JAN 2, 2017 (MON): Holiday; US market closed.
JAN 3, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%). Increased probability of minor favorable developments related to businesses in IT, travel, media, oil, and pharmaceuticals. Some governmental regulation or corporate strategy may be discussed or considered that will be seen as helpful to businesses in the areas above.
JAN 4, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%).
USA: Jan 4-5 — Favorable time for improving foreign relations (esp. military alliances and international trade/shipping/transportation), and for passing laws that improve opportunities for investments (esp. overseas), and for businesses that provide products and services related to taxes, insurance, and loans. For ex., some action may be taken to improve sales of related products or facilitate the movement of goods or information. There may also be improvements related to higher education (e.g., student loans or foreign student exchange).
JAN 5, 2017 (TH): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%).
USA: Favorable time for improving foreign relations (esp. financial ties), participating in multinational organizations (e.g., achieving an agreement on some fiscal issue or agreeing on common values), and for advancing healthcare-related projects. Healthcare-related businesses and businesses that rely on government contracts/support may see increased profits or funding. We may hear about an approval of some government-sponsored project that aims to address some social needs (e.g., to help people who can’t afford healthcare).
JAN 6, 2017 (FR): Medium-strong influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Increased focus on governmental secrets and hidden problems of large corporations (esp. related to taxes, secrets, hacking, power take overs, debt, and death of leaders). Also, there may be increased news about mining (possibly gold mines or some major mining company), recycling businesses, nuclear power plants, taxes, debt, and any underground activities (literally or figuratively). Also, there may be an important announcement about oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, water, etc. or healthcare (incl. veterinary care) or addressing some social need (e.g., helping some underprivileged group because they don’t have enough money). Such an announcement may be made at a large gathering or affect a large group of people. The announcement may focus on the change in profits, value, or price of something (e.g., price of oil or profits from pharmaceuticals’ or chemicals’ sales) — the price/profits may be adjusted in the way that will be unpopular with large groups of people or go against the current trend.
>>>> Glance ahead, global (new):
End of Feb 2017 (about 20-28) — Important time with significant events and greater than usual market moves (esp. 27). Increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks (20-21), accidents (26-27; esp. electric cars, aerospace, and electricity-related), and of important events related to aerospace, IT, engines, electricity, charging/batteries, high tech equipment, telecoms, etc. (26-27; e.g., an innovative scientific breakthrough, or, equipment breakdown and fire). Weather-wise, we may hear about lightening strikes and fires; these may cause power outages or damage some important equipment, incl. satellites, planes, etc. Some electric grid may become overpowered. Around Feb 26-27, there may be important news about one or more companies in the related areas that will significantly affect trading of such companies (either up or down; down seems more likely to me at this time).
May 10 (+- 1-2 days) — Increased focus on military (esp. navy), gaming/fighting/hunting/racing/sports, oil, chemicals, poisons (e.g., of water), drugs, movies/music (esp. about Mars or military/hunting/fighting/racing/sports), pharmaceuticals, medicine, and religion. There may be accidents, shootings, fires, or problems related to the areas above (e.g., protests against a navy base, problems with a military ship, ferry accident, fire at a chemical plant, accident involving a movie star, etc.). Accidents at this time may be related to driving/flying and/or they may be due to excessive wind or speed.
May 26-29 (esp. the weekend of 27-28) — increased probability of accidents, violence, fires, and earthquakes. There may be angry protests over immigration or directed toward foreign policies/entities.
June 29-30 — increased probability of violence/terrorist attacks, protests, arguments, accidents, fires, and earthquakes. These may involve mines, power plants, nuclear power, hacking, and/or occur underground, and/or involve a major cover-up. Increased military activities or problems related to military and/or aggressive entities. Power plays, perceived suppression of someone’s rights, perceived excessive governmental controls, etc. could all be triggers behind some protests, coups, and aggressive actions or verbal arguments. Someone’s arguments or reckless statements may trigger a stand-off. Arguments may involve women, children, food safety, or homeland security.
>>>> 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):
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. Other manifestations may include military-related scandals (e.g., inappropriate use of force or sex-related), accidents (e.g., some weapons dropped at the wrong place), death of important/old military leaders, ending of some military program, or retirement of some important military weapon/facility/vehicle (e.g., a ship, base, 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.
