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.).
Global: Dec 2016 and Jan through Nov, 2017 (esp. Jan-Feb and late Aug) — Favorable time for entering into long-term international agreements/partnerships and initiating large-scale international projects related to transportation, shipping, higher education, and/or immigration. These developments will also likely lead to long-term projects related to military, IT, telecoms, aerospace, electric devices, electric cars, electricity generation, etc. Themes of immigration, international collaboration, long-distance transportation, aerospace, electricity, internet, IT, and some high tech engineering will become prominent with focus on long-term or large-scale initiatives. New alliances may form and old partnerships may unexpectedly break up.
Long-term projects initiated at this time in the areas above (aerospace, electricity generation, etc.) will likely be more successful than usual and/or have long-lasting effects. We may hear about innovations or exciting projects in these areas. These projects may affect international relationships, involve international partners, or result from changes in international relationships. The projects may be very high tech but still practical and “doable” — some new technology may be successfully implemented. At the same time, there may be major surprises about partnerships, legal rulings, and unexpected contracts (esp. in Mar-Apr and early Aug, 2017). Some partnerships may be seriously tested, and/or businesses or projects in the related areas (e.g., electric cars, airplanes, telecoms, satellites, IT, etc.) may receive unexpectedly large support, or, be abruptly cancelled. These developments may be due to international problems (e.g., immigration, travel, or shipping), legal problems, governmental regulations, major changes in corporate policies, or disagreements about the value or something (e.g., religious beliefs/values, moral considerations, or excessively high price).
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 breaking, 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.
USA (NEW): Jan 25 – Mar 06, 2017 (esp. mid Feb); May 08 – Jun 22, 2017 (esp. late May/early Jun); and Oct 25 – Nov 27, 2017 (esp. early-to-mid Nov) — Important news about the government, leadership, real estate, homeownership, homeland security, land, borders, food, farming, family planning/motherhood issues, banks’ savings/capital and activities related to preserving gains (esp. related to investments in land/real estate), and large corporations. There will probably be some major restructuring, increased regulations, limitations, losses, cuts, shortages, and restrictions. For ex., we may hear about decreased spending on family planning services and changes in the capital requirements for banks. Some old/established or outdated practices may be stopped, programs cancelled, and/or leaders may leave/die. The changes will be related to some new vision and goals for the country as well as foreign investments. The changes will likely not proceed smoothly or gradually, but will be implemented in an upsetting way and/or in response to something breaking or coming to an end. Developments taking place at this time will be of a permanent nature and have a long term (years) effect. The last time the US experienced a similar astrological influence was in 1987-88.
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: With Neptune/Saturn square now separated for good after spending about 2yrs in a tense transit associated with suppressed oil prices (see Oil prices fluctuations and Neptune-Saturn cycle: Financial astrology insights), we should now see a multi-year recovery. 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 in the oil prices with related geopolitical turmoil (similar in scale [though not necessarily the same in direction] to what we experienced in 2015-16 but likely even more dramatic). 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. chemical and bioweapons), water, navy, 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 likely 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 was announced in 2016 under the Neptune/Saturn square —> Neptune=chemicals, Saturn=large corporations, square=forcibly breaking an old pattern. We may hear about other Neptunian businesses or products undergoing major changes around the times of hard Neptune/Saturn aspects (e.g., in 2025-26).
USA: Increased probability of new developments related to military, electric cars, aerospace, sports, racing, gambling, entertainment industry, stock market, and international partnerships — there may be some unexpected changes or new opportunities, incl. improved IT, improved signal/internet coverage, new cyber-security initiatives, and changes in electricity/power supply. The changes could be fairly revolutionary, unexpected, or surprising and may be due to some unexpected/unusual domestic developments related to real estate, buildings/territory where related businesses are located, mortgages, land, homeland security, borders, food, farming, and banks’ assets.
China: Continued influence from last week. Increased focus on oil, chemicals, alcohol, beverages, pharmaceuticals, medicine (esp. mental health, infectious disease, genetics, hybridization, and end-of-life), navy, water, drugs, poisons, pollution, secrets, death, music, movies, photography, and religion. There may be some excitement or excess related to these areas, probably due to larger than usual investments in or profits/losses from these areas; some issue may get out of control, cross borders, or exceed limits. We may also hear about new research or finding (e.g., some medical research related to reproduction, life span, or mental health), or about something being unearthed/mined (e.g., some old remains or oil/metal). Finally, there may be changes in regulations or agreements related to taxes, insurance, and loans that could affect the areas above (e.g., increased taxes on certain related products or changes in bank rates), as well as international trade, travel, and shipping (esp. over water or of oil, chemicals, etc.). New laws, regulations, or legal issues will likely be featured prominently in the news (e.g., whether some actions are legal or whether some entity has crossed the borders/limits). This influence is stronger early in the week.
JAN 23, 2017 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55%). Pre-open and early am — minor news (likely positive, such as encouraging report of some kind) about oil, chemicals, pharma, etc.
Jan 23-25 — we may hear about increased profits, increased product value, or expenses related to some drug or fighting some disease (probably infectious and/or spread via water/fluids). The possibility of a loss is somewhat greater than of the increased profits due to some mismanagement, mismatched partnership, or legal issues. Alternatively, there may be an opportunity to increase profits/value, but it could be compromised due to legal or partnership problems.
USA: Jan 23-24 — increased probability of mildly stressful news about military (esp. alliances or agreements), weapons, sports, casinos, entertainment industry, and stock markets. The value or profits of related businesses may decrease, expenses may increase, or some product may be seen as less attractive than usual (e.g., some action movie may earn less than expected, revenues from sports events may decline, etc.). The issues/losses may stem from media coverage, transportation, or retail sales.
JAN 24, 2017 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).
JAN 25, 2017 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).
JAN 26, 2017 (TH): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).
Jan 26-27 — There may be concerns about the availability of cash, regulation of profits, financial losses, and financial regulations. The concerns may be due to some issues being unclear, or, due to concerns about profits from oil, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, movies, navy, water, beverages, etc. Businesses related to the areas above may challenge authorities/legal regulators but will likely run into problems or experience a lack of support [from the authorities]. Alternatively or additionally, we may hear about these businesses voluntarily committing a large sum of money to a long-term project (related to higher education, international connections, or some legal regulations).
JAN 27, 2017 (FR): Strong influence; market may possibly go down (60-65%).
>>>> Glance ahead, global:
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 from 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):
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.
