Global: Video with 2019 predictions. Will write up the details + dates in a separate blog post.
Global: As we enter 2019, we will gradually begin to experience the effects of the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. This time period will likely see major geopolitical changes, including international tensions, tightening of the budgets, reduced spending, increased governmental controls, corporate restructuring, changes in the governance structure or leadership of key power player countries/corporations, etc. With occasional transits from Mars to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, as well as North Node and Jupiter, this may be accompanied by an increase in earthquakes, disasters (esp. related to mining, tunnels, [older] structures, dams, bridges, oil rigs, nuclear power plants, recycling facilities, etc.), violent terrorism attacks, protests and military clashes. There may also be invasions of one country by another, countries or their portions claiming independence, countries forming new blocks or separating from former unions, death of prominent governmental/corporate leaders, major health epidemics or pollution incidents [esp. nuclear], etc. “A whole lotta shakin’” will be going on [both at the level of the planet, meaning its crust, as well as governments and large corporations]. This general global trend has begun in 2018 and will continue and intensify into 2019-2020. For ex., as mentioned in the long term section above, March – July of 2019 look particularly stressful (e.g., June 14, 2019 looks very stressful with a chart similar to that of the SL-1 nuclear reactor meltdown in 1961 with and addition of a Neptune/Jupiter square indicative of a steam explosion or tsunami). Additionally, with Uranus (sudden change, abrupt closures/endings, volatility, surprises, internet, IT, high tech, innovation, etc.) entering Taurus (financial industry, banks, building industry, farming, etc.), we may see increased volatility in currencies (regular and cryptocurrencies) and sudden or surprising changes in the banking industry.
To evaluate which countries or companies may be affected the most, additional research would be needed, but at a glance it appears that USA, China, Belgium, Czech Republic, Serbia, Greece, Madagascar, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, and European Union may be affected.
Reposting from an older blog, to give a flavor of upcoming times (note that countries that have been affected during previous times of Saturn/Pluto conjunction will likely be affected again (so we may expect increased India/Pakistan tensions, for ex.):
“Prediction: With transiting Saturn conjunct Pluto virtually all year, 2019 looks like a tense year. At that time, we may hear about various transformations taking place, esp. in the governments, large corporations, or other large entities that act as powerful leaders/rulers on a national or multinational level. Other areas that may undergo significant changes or experience some tribulations include industries related to mining, nuclear power, and natural resources. For ex., in 1947, when Saturn and Pluto were conjunct as well, there was a Partition of India (millions were displaced or died in the process). When Saturn and Pluto formed a close conjunction in Leo back in August of 1947, sovereign states of India and Pakistan have been officially created. Also, at the time of the last Saturn/Pluto conjunction in 1982, the Canada Constitution Act of 1982 was passed basically making Canada fully independent from the UK.”
Global: Jan, June and Sep of 2018 — Jupiter/Neptune square will bring increased focus on issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water, beverages, drugs, poisons, deception, religion, movies, music, etc. as well as migration, foreign relations, long distance travel, laws, judges, etc. There may be greater than usual volatility in prices and availability (e.g., oil transportation is blocked due to weather, laws, or foreign relations). There may be news about the abundance of related products or events (e.g., floods, snowstorms, lawsuits, and so on). The square aspect is tense one and typically manifests as a buildup that suddenly bursts/culminates in a big event or a resolution. For ex., a drought is suddenly followed by major flooding; hot dry weather is followed by a massive snowstorm; build up of water/oil/some chemical in a storage location exceeds the capacity and spills over; oil shipment is first blocked but then suddenly released; large illegal chemical/drug shipment is busted; chemical shipment is forbidden because of the changes in laws; deception associated with a religious figure is exposed; movement of immigrants, travelers, or international shipments across some border suddenly stops but then there is a break through after a large build up at the border; and so on. There will likely be increased news about the legal status and international shipments of pharmaceuticals or drugs (legal and not; esp. addictive substances) — there may be some some confusion and volatility due to high expectation that may not pay off (e.g., a treatment is not approved, a shipment is delayed, ethical concerns lead to the trial cancellation, etc.). Finally, there may be increased news about confusion, addiction, drowning, disappearance, poisoning, illness, unethical behavior, moral disagreements, or deception related to judges, lawyers, professors, clergy, politicians that are heavily involved in international negotiations, or leaders of major shipping companies.
Global: Mid-May, 2018 through Apr 2026 (Uranus transit though Taurus) — Increased focus on cryptocurrencies, electronic financial transactions, virtual banking, community banking, and greater than usual fluctuations in currencies’ value (electronic or otherwise). Similarly, this will be a time of change for banks and financial institutions, with entities suddenly appearing, rising to prominence seemingly overnight, then equally abruptly disappearing, or entities radically changing their business. Currencies’ values will be volatile and/or there may be new “weird” hybrid currencies (something that combines virtual and “real” value, or, crosses international borders, or, is valuable only in some special exclusive community, such as a social network [Facebook/Google/Amazon currencies?]). Update (1/14/18): Kodak just announced its KODAKCoin cryptocurrency last week. Surely, more companies will follow. How about, Facebook “Fast Bucks,” Google “Rubles” [lol], and Amazon “Bezos”?😜😂
With Taurus = money/finance/stability; Uranus = revolution/lightening bolt/sudden change, this may be a period of significant changes for the financial industry. We will likely see a lot of changes in this area and a big push for all transactions to be conducted electronically (no cash?). In finance and related industries, the focus may shift to all things electronic and community-based (incl. increasing ties between social networks and banks). There will be many fluctuations, changes in direction, and an overall sense of instability/volatility. Uranus is a planet associated with community, equality, being non-gender specific, and somewhat cold (not personable or affectionate) — I imagine this may lead to closures or drastic reduction of bank branches that conduct in-person transactions. Uranus also has to do with all things electronic, high tech, complex, and super fast — this may manifest as increased utilization of big data (esp. from social networks or some large communities) and leveraging advanced technology and fast data processing to make money.
Other manifestations of the Uranus transit though Taurus may include: weird non-gender specific space-y (alien-looking) fashion, clothes used to produce electricity, increased interest in wearable electronics, unusual food growing practices (e.g., growing food in a lab or space, using robots to harvest crops, etc.), harvesting electricity from plants, community farming, unusual construction methods, building things in space, using space technologies in construction (esp. to collect/use electricity more effectively), communities coming together to build things (in places where this normally doesn’t take place), appearance of unusual plants or plants engaging in some unusual activities (blooming in a wrong time of the year? male/female plants becoming intersex? strange hybrid plants?), rise of social networks that focus on money or enable exchange of valuable products/services, and/or expansion of virtual reality communities/activities that provide real source of income or provide virtual services in exchange for real/virtual currency.
Global: March – July of 2019 — Increased probability of major disasters, incl. earthquakes, tsunami, oil spills, nuclear accidents, mine collapses, major floods, etc. The scale of the events will be comparable to 2010 Haiti earthquake, Deepwater Horizon spill, etc. The actual event may be an earthquake, collapse of some solid structure (mine, dam, old buildings, etc.), landslide, etc.. At the same time, the event(s) may be triggered by or associated with water-related problems (e.g., steam escapes and causes a nuclear plant accident, tsunami damages structures, floods destroy buildings, etc.). Am currently looking at past events and individual countries’ charts to try to narrow down possible locations. I plan to elaborate on this with more details in a separate post. In general, there seems to be a pattern with solar flares, earthquakes, and major disasters occurring when slower moving planets form oppositions, squares and other more complex symmetric patterns around the Sun in heliocentric chart. Aspects to Chiron (geo- and helio-) from Saturn and Pluto appear to coincide with major disasters as well.
USA/ Kilauea: The volcano will likely continue building up tension and/or erupting more frequently or with more intensity for the next few years. In 2018 and 2019, the intensification may occur during the following periods: mid-Aug to mid-Sep 2018 (minor), early Nov 2018 to late Jan 2019 (minor), early to mid-Feb 2019 (possible eruption), end of June 2019 (minor), mid-Nov 2019 (minor). Then, the entire 2020 will likely see significantly increased activity with either one continuous eruption or series of periodic eruptions. (In 2020, there will be an increase in earthquakes globally in general.) In 2021, the intensification may occur in early Jan, early June, and mid to late Oct.
Then, in 2022 (possibly Feb-Mar, late June-early July, early Aug) and/or 2023 (esp. May, Aug-Oct), there may be additional significant eruptions that can significantly alter the surrounding landscape. Alternatively, during 2022-2023, a major effort will be undertaken to rebuild the surrounding area. Either way, the result may leave the area unrecognizable.
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.).
In 2018 through 2020, China will undergo a major transformation in a number of areas, incl. oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, movies, and any hidden/obscure areas of influence that are somewhat ephemeral and hard to pin down/discover (e.g., spying, bioweapons, drugs, submarines, religion, movies, etc.). The transformation will likely be accompanied by scandals, power manipulations, uncovering hidden agendas, and possibly accidents (esp. nuclear or pollution- and water-related), esp. in the beginning, followed by some massive reforms, and ultimately greater expansion/improvements. This transformation will be gradual and result in long-term changes. It will take place under a very slow Pluto transit to China’s 12th house Jupiter. The 12th house deals with water, navy, oil, religion, prisons, chemicals, drugs, poisons, isolation, hidden influence, etc. and Jupiter brings expansion and abundance. With Pluto hovering over Jupiter, the country can experience greater expansion in related areas, but also potential problems due to over-expansion, stretching too far, or some powerful “hidden” enemies (e.g., hacking, espionage, poisons, etc.). The influence will likely manifest both ways — the country may engage more in these types of activities as well as external players may engage in them more often to influence China.
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).
Syria: Apr 17 – Aug 20, 2017 (esp. mid-June 2017); Feb 14 – Apr 11, 2018 (esp. mid-March 2018); and Sep 1, 2018 – Feb 11, 2019 (esp. 2nd week of Oct, 2018 and 2nd week of Jan, 2019) — Neptune (deception, confusion, oil, chemicals, water, navy, etc.) will conjunct (intensification, important developments, blending of energies) Syria’s Moon (security, nourishment, mother, women, emotion) ruler of the 10th house of leadership/government in the 5th house of stock market/risks/procreation/children. This could indicate increased focus on the areas above (e.g., leaders, children, and/or security) with themes of confusion or possibly poisoning. For ex., poisoning or chemical exposure of food, children, or mothers; confusion or lies about leadership; emotional confusion; increased drug use; increased floods; risky activities related to oil or chemicals; oil-for-food trading; etc. (Syria’s chart is for 01/01/44 midnight EET -2:00, Damascus, Syria). With Bashar Al Assad’s (http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/al%20Assad,_Bashar) Saturn (authority, structure, rigidity, stability, conservatism, obstacles) being in about the same place as Syria’s Moon, he will experience these same periods (mostly the earlier part of each time range and a few weeks prior) as times of confusion about how to be an authority, how to set boundaries/rules, and how to maintain stability and structure. At these times, he will likely have to deal with an increased number of situations involving deception, confusion, chemicals, oil, healthcare, drugs, poisons, water, and navy.
Vatican City [06.07.1929]: In 2017 (esp. Jan, Aug, and Oct-Dec), transiting Pluto (major transformation, death/rebirth, nuclear power, power plays, sex, dictatorship, terror, debt/loans, espionage, secrets, etc.) will oppose Vatican’s natal Pluto. This transit indicates a period of major transformation/reforms and may bring out some hidden issues into the light [to reform them]. Likely, increased news about power struggles and news related to the issues listed above. It will be worthwhile to observe this period carefully as in a few years, in 2022-23, the US will experience a Pluto return (transit of Pluto over the natal Pluto) — this period will bring a similar energy to the US, except in an even more intense way (esp. related to hidden issues, spying, healthcare/end of life care, navy/oil/chemicals/drugs/water, debt/loans, and financial institutions). The US Pluto return is an interesting subject on its own and I plan to write a separate blog post about it.
Global: Ongoing background influence (2019-2020) — Increased probability of a major disaster, very strong earthquake, accident, government reshuffling, corporate restructuring announcement, or of violent/terrorist attacks. This week, the influence is very strong all week, esp. on Tue-Wed.
Global: May 15-22 (esp. 16-18 and 20-21) — Increased focus on banks/finance as well as farming and construction. There may be surprising or exciting news about new approaches, sudden changes in value (e.g., of some currency or commodity [esp. sugar]), and agreements/contracts/sales.
Global: May 16 – July 28 (esp. May 22-24, 26-27, 29-30; June 5, 7, 9-24; July 9, 13, 16-21) — Increased focus on banks/finance (esp. savings, assets, real estate) as well as farming, food production, waste polluting farmlands, public health safety, and homeland security. There may be a slowly increasing sense of some hidden / inside threat (fighting at home, civil war, civil unrest, self-defeating policies made by some some governments, people upset over lack of protection for farmers or domestic businesses, concerns about real estate/housing, problems for farmers, etc.). Threat/problems will likely be related to domestic issues (land, farming, housing, home-grown businesses, food production, etc.). The problems may arise due to bad weather (esp. flooding or rains), wars; large scale disasters such as earthquakes, chemical spills, nuclear plant accidents, etc.; or, due to poor policies implemented by government or large corporations (e.g., the use of some chemical is authorized but it ends up massively polluting the land). This influence may culminate in some serious events /problems/ military tensions /accidents in June (esp. 9-21). June 23 may see increased news about oil, chemicals, water, and international travel/shipments.
USA/Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Early February 2019 will likely be a time of a major transformation for Ginsburg, incl. job change and increased health risks (e.g., more falls). I will be surprised if she doesn’t leave around Feb 2019. If she doesn’t, there is an even more stressful time for her coming up in May – June 2019. In particular, early to mid June 2019 looks like super tense time for ALL. Unfortunately for Ginsburg, tense transits at that time will apply pressure to the planets in her horoscope and this may manifest as health concerns.
China: As last week, increased probability of news abut earthquakes, disasters, oil, navy, pharmaceuticals, pollution, secrets, deception, long distance transportation (esp. over water or railroad), and international agreements/expansion. This is a long lasting influence and will remain in place for weeks.
MAY 20, 2019 (MON): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60-65%). Busy news day with focus on banks/financial institutions as well as communication/transportation and retail sales related businesses (incl. car and airplane manufacturers, airlines, social media, and on-line retailers).
USA: May 20-21 — Increased probability of news about new initiatives aimed at defending domestic businesses and earnings (e.g., an announcement about some international agreement or partnership). The affected areas will likely relate to farming, real estate, banking/savings, as well as healthcare, raising cattle (or some other farm animals), and service industries. There may also be increased news about jobs and workforce in general, incl. employment rates and perspectives (esp. for women) — we may hear about new initiatives or aggressive moves to improve the situation (provide more jobs domestically, esp. to women). The news may be more positive on Mon or a new development is first introduced on Mon, but on Tue there may be a pushback or anger over these announcements.
MAY 21, 2019 (TUE): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (60%). Busy news day with focus on communication/transportation, education, and retail sales. We may hear about new leaders, projects, businesses, contracts, services or products, such as new projects or agreements related to cars, airplanes, shipping, IT, social media, news companies, on-line sales, etc. The projects may involve offering improved ways to buy/sell services, splitting a business into multiple niche directions, offering more variety, appealing to younger audience (esp. students), improving speed with which news/notifications are delivered, improving shipping speed, offering more retail locations or shipping destinations, improving education quality or speed, etc.
MAY 22, 2019 (WED): Medium influence; market may possibly go up (55-60%). Minor positive news for businesses related to IT, telecoms, high tech, aerospace, power generation, electric vehicles, etc. (e.g., increased investments or news about projects proceeding well).
USA: May 22-24 — Increased probability of news about new vision for the country, new goals, laws, immigration, long distance travel, as well as international partnerships, agreements, shipments, and legally binding contracts. We may hear about new projects or new developments in these areas, or, about aggressive (if not military) actions to pursue country’s goals in the related areas — for ex., sending shipments overseas (to more locations than before), entering into international partnership (incl. military-related), selling weapons overseas, aggressively pursuing legalization of some agreements, etc. There may also be news about hotter than usual weather, fires, explosions, or accidents — these may too involve long distance transportation, foreign nationals, higher education (e.g., professors or students), and/or lawyers/judges.
MAY 23, 2019 (TH): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (60%). Minor concerns about earnings, banks, financial institutions, real estate, and cryptocurrencies — the concerns may be because new innovative approaches are seen as disruptive to the established way or doing business (e.g., online/virtual sales threaten physical establishments), or, to because some new goals may be seen as unrealistic, or, because businesses may be seen as not real or reliable (e.g., all virtual or internet-based).
May 23-24 (mostly 23) — Increased probability of negative or stressful news about pharmaceuticals, pollution, accidents, attacks, bad weather (heat, fires), infectious diseases or food poisonings (esp. related to farm animals or produce). The issue may be related to overly aggressive moves (e.g., overselling, starting too many new projects, etc.), lack of energy to complete a project because it ran out of steam, poor start to a project, or side effects from a drug (e.g., overheating, fever, infections, digestive problems).
MAY 24, 2019 (FR): Medium influence; market may possibly go down (55%).
>>>> Glance ahead (updated):
NEW China: May 26-27, 2019; Jun 4-14, 2019 (esp. June) — Escalation of tensions with international parters. This may include fighting over leadership/power position, arguments over contracts, aggressive negotiations, deceptive/confusing contracts, and military posturing. Some minor resolution may be reached around June 14 (Fr). This period overlaps with a very intense time globally (pretty much all of June looks tense), so it is possible that US-China tensions may precede some major geopolitical developments and/or market moves in the early-mid-June.
Global/OIL: Jun 8-22 (+- several days; esp. 10, 14, 18, and 19), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, protests, fires, floods, hurricanes, tsunami, oil spills, gas leaks, and other disasters. Super tense time; the more I look at it, the worse it looks. 😰 This may be a time of some truly large disaster or an event that will affect large groups of people (e.g., a large earthquake accompanied by a tsunami and followed by oil/gas leaks and explosions). Alternatively, there may be several disasters at the same time. June 10, 14, 18, and 19 look the worst. At this time, markets may experience several strong down days as well. There may also be some serious geopolitical tensions and restructuring at this time. Some governmental powers and/or leadership may be challenged and some countries may worry about their borders/independence/security. There will also be increased focus on immigration, laws, and foreign relations. The influence is not going to dissolve quickly but rather this may be a time that sees some events that set other events in motion, and/or are themselves a culmination of some tensions (geopolitical and/or in the Earth’s crust). In terms of the market, this period will likely see a very significant move (likely down). Additionally, there will likely be important events and price fluctuations related to OIL and derived product (e.g., some chemicals) — there may be an overabundance of oil, conflicts over oil, oil prices reaching some extreme point (high or low), etc. Taken into consideration other transits at this time, this may be due to some weather-related disaster, major accident(s), or war(s). Similarly to OIL, at this period there will likely be increased tensions or adjustments in prices (big drops/rallies) related to immigration, foreign relations, laws, pharmaceuticals (incl. various plant-based drugs [marijuana/cannabis stocks?]; possibly due to problems with farming, land, safety/security, or governmental regulations), religion, beverages, music, movies, video equipment, etc. Lastly, there will likely be increased news about banks and savings — there may be concerns about the safety of investments, issues with real estate, concerns about governmental controls/restrictions/regulations, concerns about safety (due to wars/attacks/quakes/etc.), etc.
Global: Jul 8-10, 2019 — Important days; strong planetary influence. Increased probability of noteworthy announcements about leaders from governments or large corporations (possibly a bank and/or a wealthy individual) — possibly about a change in leadership or even death of a leader. Also, at this time plus a few days before/after — increased probability of a major earthquake, landslide, collapse of large buildings, explosions/fires/shootings, or some other disaster/accident/attack. Finally, there may be important news about banks and real estate — this may have to do with changes in leadership or governmental regulation/controls (to ensure stability and security).
Global: Sep 2-3; 12-14 (esp. 13); 23; and 27-28, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant move in the markets (probably down; especially on Sep 13th). Increased news about navy, oil, gas, water, religion, chemicals, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, drugs, music, movies, deception, etc. There may be news about large losses by some pharma companies, problems with healthcare providers, attacks/accidents involving navy, gas or oil leaks, bad weather involving water (e.g., hurricanes and floods), etc. More generally, bad weather news involving excess of water and focus on oil, pharma, healthcare, etc. will likely be prominent the entire month of September. Around Sep 23-28, there is an additional risk of geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters (globally and in the US).
Global: Oct 27 – Nov 4 (+- several days; esp. Oct 27 and Nov 4), 2019 — Increased probability of earthquakes, mudslides, building collapses, accidents, explosions, attacks, protests, fires, and other disasters (esp. involving underground or hidden/dark locations, mountains, nuclear power plants, recycling plants, terrorism, violence, etc.). There may also be increased focus on agreements, contracts, tariffs, and negotiations related to steel, minerals, mining, nuclear power, and recycling. There may be tensions surrounding these topics and/or their availability may be restricted (either because of some disasters/accidents or artificially [through tariffs or governmental regulations]).
Global: Dec 12-13, 2019 — Increased probability of a significant move in the markets (probably down). Increased focus on businesses and products related to steel, coal, oil, and mining. Value of related commodities or profit from them may go up. Increased news about restructuring or controls at the level of government or large corporations and possibly about rates/loans.
Global: Dec 29, 2019 – Jan 15 (esp. Jan 9-12), 2020 — Increased probability of a major geopolitical event and/or some disaster (manmade or natural, incl. earthquakes, mudslides, storms, power loss, contagious disease epidemic, nuclear accident, collapse of a recycling plant or a mine, etc.). There may be an official public announcement about a new law, new treaty, new legal decision, creation of a new bloc of countries, separation of some long-term partner countries (“exit” from a bloc), etc. The event will have an international significance and affect large numbers of people; issues related to foreign affairs, immigration, and long-distance transportation will be prominent. This may be some country [or a large established corporation] breaking up into smaller territories [companies], territories uniting to create a country, a country undergoing a complete change in the government/leadership (leaders may die or be violently removed), major trial of some leader in court, court(s) deciding on legality of some country’s actions against another country, etc. In particular, China and the US may be affected, as well as large established corporations and old/established/conservative leaders (they may die), as well as industries related to recycling, nuclear power, steel, mining, oil, spying, hacking, etc. Markets may experience larger than average moves at that time (probably down initially, but may then turn up after some legal document is signed or some agreement is finalized). The market moves may possibly due to concerns about US/China trade or relationships, and/or, some new legal international arrangements/goals/partnerships (possibly initiated by the US).
Global/OIL: IF horoscope dates for Iran and Saudi Arabia are correct (e.g., I see astrotheme gives them as 04/01/79, 12:01am, Tehran, Iran and 09/23/32, 12:01am, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), then starting early next year (2019), we may hear about intense transformations or some significant tensions in these countries, which may potentially affect oil prices. First such period will be from about Mar 2018 through 2020 (esp. 2019-2020) with Saudi Arabia’s chart being affected more (for Iran, tensions will be felt mostly in 2020). Another such period will likely be in 2023-2025. Additionally, for Iran only, 2021- early 2022.
With Saturn Neptune conjunction (expected to be a major turning point in oil prices cycle) coming up in 2025-2026 and Neptune entering Aries in 2026, oil prices may indeed continue to rise till then. At a minimum, as mentioned in the Long Term predictions – OIL section, we may hear about oil and other Neptunian businesses or products (e.g., chemicals, pharmaceuticals, etc.) undergoing major changes in 2025-26.
USA: 2022 – 2023 — Pluto returns to its place in the country’s natal chart — major changes in the government and a transformation of the country. Markets may go down globally around Dec 2021 (Uranus Saturn square Dec 2021 – Jan 2022). Then, in Jan-Feb 2022, we may see more significant events [gradually] unfolding in the US; these will relate to governmental leadership and structure. At the same time, there may be confusion or concerns about borders, land, homeland security, banks, stock market, real estate; problems with flooding, navy, snowstorms, movie industry, oil, chemicals, pharmaceuticals; and religious disagreements (transiting Neptune will square US Mars, ruler of the 5th, and Neptune, ruler of the 4th). Around Feb 1-17, 2023 (esp. the 10th), there may be major changes related to US currency and/ monetary policies, which in turn may affect the price of precious metals and other currencies.
USA: Apr 21 – May 30, 2025 (esp. May 5-12, 2025) and Jan-Feb 2026 — Greater than usual moves in gold and/or silver prices, notable events related to US monetary policy and/or currency value changes.
