For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (updated; moved 2025-2035 predictions there). It will be updated as I come up with new long-term predictions. If I do, I’ll mention that the long-term forecast was updated.
JUL 05, 2021 (MON): N/A; U.S. Holiday, markets closed.
Jun 28 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jun 29 through Jul 6) — Increased risk of flash crashes in the stock market. At a minimum, increased market volatility. The most affected sectors will probably include (A) finance, currencies, crypto (some asset may quickly lose a lot of value but then rapidly rebound or vice versa, sharply gain and then drop); (B) communication/transportation (esp. airplanes, electric cars, and transportation of oil/gas/chemicals or maritime transportation); and (C) metals (possible concerns about shortages, unstable conditions, supply chain disruptions, old logistics breaking, etc.). Weather-wise, there is an increased risk of turbulent events with a sudden onset. These may involve excessive wind, large electric discharge, and/or heat (e.g., tornadoes, fires, lightening storms, etc.). Weather events may be accompanied by power outages or some other calamities.
Jun 29 – Jul 9, 2021 (esp. Jul 1-6) — Increased probability of major accidents, earthquakes, escalation of military tensions, antigovernment protests, fires, explosions, lightening strikes, and of other tense or dangerous events. The events may occur suddenly, and may be due to accidental overheating of some material (e.g., something used in construction or farming) or sudden onset of turbulent weather (tornado, lightening storm). In particular, there is an increased risk of old worn-out metal parts (e.g., parts of an engine) overheating and breaking under pressure; this may affect air travel or airspace-related projects (e.g., a rocket test is unsuccessful). At the same time, there may be wild market swings and excess volatility, esp. related to banks, financial institutions, currencies, and cryptocurrencies. The swings may lead to aggressive governmental regulations. Some asset may be rising and falling like crazy during a short time; the trading may be halted or be stop-and-go.
Some specific manifestation of similar transits in the past included major earthquakes, avalanches, rockslides, airplane crashes (e.g., the downing of the Iran Air Flight 655 on July 3 1988), air show disasters, large car pile-ups (100+ cars) due to bad road conditions, car accidents involving famous people [and having consequences for large groups of people who relied on that famous person being in good health], accidents involving improper use of chemicals leading to explosion/fire, gas or oil pipe leaks leading to explosion/fire, oil rig disasters (e.g., the Piper Alpha oil rig explosion on July 6 1988, one of the worst offshore industry’s disasters in history), mishandling of fireworks leading to explosion/fire, major flooding resulting from dam failure (so not just due to rain, but specifically due to a structural collapse), bacterial contamination of municipal water, as well as bad weather in general (unseasonably hot or cold, dry or wet). In terms of the stock market, there have been flash crashes and increased market volatility. Lastly, there have been increased protests and news about military escalations (e.g., deployment of troops to deal with some situation).
Jun 30 – Jul 6, 2021 — Increased news involving oil, gas, chemicals, water, beverages, navy, maritime transport, pharma, pollution, religion, drugs, movies, music, etc. The news may be stressful and involve problems with maritime transportation, miscommunication, deceptive communication, confused actions (e.g., a ship runs aground in a fog), oil spills, water pollution, and so on. Agreements, deals, reports, or contracts that are finalized at this time may be missing data or contain more errors than usual. It may be difficult to reach an agreement at this time or to obtain a detailed report — some info may not be available, missing, or obscured. More generally, not an auspicious time for communication and transportation businesses — there may be confusing reports, sales may be down, shipments or travel may be delayed, etc.
USA: Jul 2-5, 2021 — Possible issues related to oil, gas, chemicals, pharma, movies/entertainment industry, water, water pollution, sports, military, navy, and maritime transport. We may hear about a sale, deal, agreement, communication or transportation project, but the exact details may be vague or the conditions may be unclear. The uncertainty may contribute to a down move in the market on Fr-Mon (July 2-5).
USA: Jun 3 – Jul 10, 2021 and Jan 5-18, 2022 — Hopeful mood and/or positive news about earnings, healthcare, and workforce (e.g., increased profits or funding, improved conditions, greater opportunities, positive outlook, etc.). There may also be increased news about international negotiations or contracts — agreements related to communication/transportation businesses reached at this time should be beneficial for the US long term. The situation may involve initial discussions in June-July of 2021, followed by the final agreement in Jan of 2022.
China: Jul 2-11, 2021 — Potentially difficult and tense time. Increased news about the military, weapons, arguments with partners, conflict escalations, athletic achievements, sports records broken, as well as incidents/accidents/explosions/fires/etc. Manifestations can range from breaking records in sports competitions to escalating threats and militarized conflicts. Not a good time for peaceful negotiations; agreements will likely not go well or will require a saintly amount of patience. Previous agreements/deals may be broken. Finally, there may be problems related to communication/transportation (negotiations broken off, fighting with partners, problems with car safety, issues with travel due to dangerous circumstances such as fires). If a deal is being negotiated at this time, the initial stand-off may end up being resolved by July 9-11, when parties come to an agreement about the price/value. Even if an agreement is reached, it may still be done under coercion, power play, manipulation, blackmail, etc. (e.g., a large some of money is promised/paid to secure a deal). Alternatively, the deal itself may have to do with a weapons sale or a sale of some military assets; in this case, there may be no manipulation.
JUL 06, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go down (65%). Concerns about cash availability, prices, and financial losses. The value of businesses or products related to IT, airlines, high tech, electric cars, etc. may go down or be perceived lower than anticipated. There may be some disappointing news related to those areas where the anticipated value “isn’t there” or the profits are lower than expected.
Jul 6-7, 2021 — Delays or difficulties in sending money or transferring funds. This may be due to a service outage, a network being down, or slow data transmission.
JUL 07, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go down (55-60%).
Jul 7-9, 2021 — Unexpected events, volatility, or surprising exciting developments related to banks, Forex (esp. EUR/USD), currencies, crypto, rates, credit availability, earnings, etc. Some [digital] asset may sharply gain in value and equally sharply drop. There may also be service outages (e.g., for a trading platform) that could delay trading and result in unexpected consequences. Finally, excessive volatility may result in stricter regulations or some limits being triggered. The reasons for volatility may be related to the asset(s) being digital (not backed by physical assets) or unstable. Some asset may be overhyped, attract attention short-term, but not live up to the expectations. Concerns about the value of some “digital” asset may lead some investors to turn to gold; however, this too may be a short-lived spike of interest.
JUL 08, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go up (55%).
JUL 09, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%).
Jul 9-12, 2021 — Increased news about sports, dance, female athletes, or some artistic activity that combines beautiful body movement with high degree of athletic ability (gymnastics, ballet?). Some prominent person [athlete, dancer, performer] may be featured prominently — possibly admired for their talent and being able to combine art and athletic ability , or, masculine and feminine qualities. In general — this is a good time to shop for or promote athletic gear that is also stylish, to open dance studio, attend a gymnastics class, etc.
Jul 12, 2021 (MON) — Looks like an up day with positive news about international agreements, long distance travel/shipments, import/export, immigration laws (or laws governing international travel), and communication/transportation companies in general.
>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from last week; moved 2025-2035 predictions to the LONG-TERM ASTROLOGY FORECAST):
Global: Jul 18-19, 2021 — Gold and likely silver may go up.
Global: Jul 27-30 — Possibly large stock market moves, esp. on Jul 28-29. The direction may be up. Regardless of the direction, there may be increased volatility with investors going overboard and some limits being exceeded. Also, at this time we can expect increased news about immigration, laws, international relations, and long distance travel/transportation. There may be some legal arguments, conflicts involving judges, or difficulties for travelers and companies involved in transporting goods over long distances. Travel and shipments may temporarily be disrupted (possibly due to weather or some legal decision). In terms of weather, this time may correspond to some extreme conditions (like a hot dry spell, excessive winds, volcanic eruption polluting air with ashes, etc.). The events above (e.g., being involved in a high-profile lawsuit or experiencing difficulties while traveling internationally) may involve a celebrity or a prominent person (e.g., royalty, actor, politician, etc.).
Global/USA: August and December of 2021 — Increased focus on gold (and silver) prices and the value of US dollar. Gold (and silver) prices may reverse at those times. This may be related to some monetary policy changes in the US and/or changes in the value of USD. Some issue(s) related to rates and financial policies that have previously come up in April may be revisited in August, and reach a final resolution/peak in December. The key dates (+- couple of days) when gold and/or silver price may reverse (probably to down after reaching a TOP) will be around Aug 9, and especially Dec 15, 2021.
USA: Aug 24, 2021 – Feb 28, 2022 — Confusion or uncertainty related to military, weapons, navy, and partnership agreements or deals with international partners. There is a greater than usual probability of some miscommunication or unintentional error leading to escalating tensions or maritime accidents (esp. involving chemicals, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). The next period when this influence will likely intensify is the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that will be prominent late March – early April 2021 (this is is true globally as well, but may affect the US more).
Global: Sep 1-3, 2021 — Increased stressful news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, religion, drugs, poisons, lies, beverages, music, movies, etc. This may result in a large market drop on Sep 3, 2021.
Global: Apr 4, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible major oil spill, chemical attack, major weather event involving excessive precipitation, a large earthquake (with tsunami or floods), or a large-scale industrial accident. As mentioned in the OIL predictions above, around this time (+- few weeks), expect major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. These events may be related (e.g., bad weather affects oil production/transportation and consequently oil prices, or, oil tanker suffers an accident in bad weather and spills large quantities of oil) or they may be independent.
Global: Aug 1, 2022 (+- few days) — Possible accident, bad weather event, or an industrial disaster involving an airplane or some flying vehicles/objects, electricity, engine, battery, fire, explosion, and excessive speed (where typically slow speed would be expected – such as accelerating too fast or coming to an abrupt stop instead of slowly rolling to a stop). There may also be sudden, surprising, or shocking news involving banks, cryptocurrencies, and finance in general (with focus on digital/on-line solutions). This may involve a sudden cancellation of a project, a business going bankrupt, a company/bank suddenly closing, a valuable asset suddenly sky rocketing or losing all value, a wild swing in the value of some cryptocurrency, a sudden power surge leading to an explosion/fire/power loss, and so on. Lastly, there may be surprising or shocking news involving farming or construction — e.g., a well-known building under construction catches fire, or, production of some food is halted.
China: 2022 spring-summer (esp. July-Aug) — Increased probability of significant flooding as well as major accidents and associated financial losses (e.g., due to floods).
USA: 2022-2023 — Difficult and may be even turbulent times. Coincides with Neptune’s (confusion, deception, water, oil, chemicals, etc.) transit through the 4th house of real-estate, land, farming, banks, assets, etc. as well as Pluto return (a major overhaul of all old systems and power structures, a rebirth; may be accompanied by scandals and power struggles at the top). Fluctuation in real-estate prices, problems with the banks and financial institutions (banks under water?), floods destroying land and agriculture, oil spills, chemical poisoning of soil, confusion about the borders (of the country and individual entities, such as states), confusion about the leadership, overhaul of the financial system, power plays among corporate and governmental entities [to gain control over resources / profits], overhaul of the power structures, reform or dismantling of power structures or powerful organizations (such as police, nuclear power plants, and banks), massive tax reforms, and even constitutional changes. This may be a chaotic time, but the events may result in certain outdated power structures and dysfunctional systems being purged/reformed.
Global: Saturn square Uranus on/off (2021-2022) — Ideological clashes, geopolitical tensions, slow-simmering battle between entities favoring more radical/revolutionary/no limit approach and entities favoring status quo/slow/controlled approach. Scientific advancements in aerospace, IT, high tech, telecoms, etc. but with delays, restrictions, and losses (e.g., a space project suffers a loss, which leads to tighter regulations and innovations to correct the flaw). Also, bad weather involving excessive winds and major disasters, in particular landslides, airplane (or space-technology related) accidents, industrial disasters (a la Deepwater Horizon oil spill), explosions of flammables (e.g., improperly stored fireworks), and ships sinking. The situations will likely unfold very rapidly with little time to spare for rescue/repairs; there will be no time to waste. The times when this transit will be felt the strongest are: Jan 9-22, 2021; Feb 13 – Mar 5, 2021; June 03-25, 2021; Jun 29-July 9, 2021; Dec 15-31, 2021; Sep 14-Oct 30, 2022. In late June through July 2021, Saturn Uranus square will be exacerbated by a stressful Mars transit and the three planets will form what’s know as a T-square. This may be a particularly difficult stressful time not favorable for risky activities (e.g., high speed race) — things may quickly get out-of-control or overheat more easily than normally. Jan 2021 (esp. the 24th) looks super tense as well — Mars will join Uranus and Jupiter will join Saturn, so Jupiter/Saturn will square Mars/Uranus conjunction — this is like pouring oil on the fire. Similar transits (also involving Taurus and Aquarius) occurred at the time of the worst fireworks disaster in all of history, the accident occurred in 2000 in Dutch city of Enschede.
Around June 14 – July 15, 2021 (esp. Jun 28 – July 9), Saturn square Uranus will be felt strongly. This may manifest as increased geopolitical tensions, protests, earthquakes, accidents, disasters, and market volatility (incl. flash crashes). This is a 3-part event (Saturn/Uranus will get closer to a square and separate 3 times) and the second of three total close square transits to occur. Earlier this February (Feb 7, 2021), during the first time when Saturn Uranus square became exact, we had a massive rock and glacier avalanche in Uttarkahnd, India, that resulted in a flash flood. Floodwaters washed away the Dhauliganga Dam and left over 200 dead and missing.
Global: May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Starting on May 13, Jupiter will enter Pisces where it will remain until Jul 27, 2021; it will then retrograde into Aquarius for a few months, and then return to Pisces from Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022. Jupiter in Pisces will likely correspond to improved conditions for the areas above and/or expansion of the related projects (e.g., a greater variety of beverages, increased popularity of audio-visual equipment, improved movie sales, greater interest in swimming/fishing/going on cruises/etc., abundance of oil, increased focus on religion, increased floods, etc.). Other manifestations include increased volume of maritime transport, increased legal regulations of maritime transport/shipping/swimming/water usage/etc., spikes in infectious diseases but also enhanced abilities to treat the issues, increase in smuggling of drugs, increased drug or pharmaceutical usage/application/spread (e.g., a shipping container with some chemical is lost at sea and contaminates the water), and so on.
USA: Apr 2021 to Mar 2022, particularly Apr-Sep, 2021 and Feb-Mar, 2022 (and within these dates, esp. late Apr to early May, 2021; Aug 20-23, 2021; and late Feb – early Mar, 2022) — Increased news about oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. There may be significant developments in the US oil industry as well as large scale engineering initiatives that involve locations near or under water (e.g., undersea cables). At this time, initiatives in the areas above (e.g., oil and pharma) may not go quite as planned due to some confusion, deceptive practices, bad weather, or unclear status. These confusing or unclear situations may be related to healthcare, accounting/bookkeeping, and governmental services such as mail delivery, police, teachers, etc. — for ex., a pharmaceutical company reports an accounting error, or, an unclear healthcare policy affects a price of some medicine. General themes will probably be (A) dissatisfaction with some entities that are not performing as well due to some confusion, lack of clear communication, uncertain status, deceptive practices, pollution, poisoning, etc.; and (B) concerns about damages due to the excessively wet weather, floods, and hurricanes.
At the same time, there may be increased concerns (similarly due to confusion, uncertainty, bad weather, or lack of transparency) about banks’ assets, loans/mortgages, real estate, savings, food security, housing security, safety of physical structures/buildings, and safety of vulnerable groups (esp. elderly and women/children). For ex., a severe flood [possibly on the Mississippi river] creates problems with food supply; a hurricane damages many buildings; a lack of clarity about some financial policies leads to concerns about the real estate market; or, concerns about a bank’s assets lead to concerns regarding its stability.
Lastly, there may be increased news about theft and security breaches in the domains above (e.g., oil/gas, pharma, navy, beverages, and banks) — for ex., a bank or pharmacy chain is hacked but the reported details are vague or it is difficult to trace who did what/when).
OIL: Increased oil news (as well as news about gas, chemicals, pollution, navy, and pharmaceuticals) on Sep 1-3, 2021. The news will probably involve tensions, attacks, arguments, etc. (similar to the events in the news around Apr 6-11, 2021, incl. water pollution, chemical spills, floods, attacks on or by medical professionals, dangerous situations at medical facilities/prisons/bio research labs, attacks on or by navy-related personnel, or attacks involving mentally unstable/addicted individuals [esp. on or by athletes or military personnel]). This news may coincide with a drop in oil and gas prices as well as a large market drop around Sep 3, 2021. More generally, the dates below may see important news related to oil, gas, chemicals, infectious diseases/pandemic, transportation over water (incl. oil tankers), transportation or storage of liquids (incl. oil, gas, and various chemicals), water pollution, oil pipeline damage, oil leaks, oil transportation challenges, etc. For example — flu outbreak affects travel, which in turn affects oil prices; hurricane or floods impact oil and gas production, refining, or delivery; oil or chemical spill pollutes a body of water and the responsible party’s stock goes down; oil prices rise on the news of oil transportation being delayed; oil prices drop on pandemic concerns; etc. This is a look at a glance and subject to adjustments as I do additional research. Updates will be highlighted and dated.
- Added a bullet (05.02.21): May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022 — Jupiter in Pisces; the period should generally correspond to the increase in oil and gas prices. This period will likely also bring excessive precipitation, significant floods, and expansion of activities and projects related to navy, ships, chemicals, drugs, and medicines.
- Aug 8-10, 2021 — Increased oil-related news and a possible reversal to down or a brief drop in oil prices at this time. This may possibly be related to travel/shipping and changes in the laws (e.g., regulation of travel or shipment procedures).
- Aug 31 – Sep 3, 2021 — Possibly a drop in oil prices, increased concerns or troubling news in Neptunian areas, incl. spike in infectious diseases, oil spills, pollution, wet weather, floods, etc.
- Sep 28-30, 2021 — Oil may go up in the days approaching the 28th, then peak and drop (or generally reverse) around the 30th. At that time, there may also be increased concerns about infectious diseases/epidemic, and an announcement of some governmental regulations of travel and communication.
- Oct 25-28, 2021 — Possible drop in oil prices (possibly due to the increase in inventory/availability or an evaluation that the process are too high)
- Nov 27-30, 2021 — Increased news about oil, as well as infectious diseases/epidemic, wet weather, and travel/shipping. Possible news about travel restrictions (being implemented or lifted), which may affect oil price. There will probably not be a reversal at this time, but more likely a continuation of the existing trend that’s in place… possibly a down trend due to large inventories or high availability.
Apr 4-12, 2022 (+- few weeks) — Possible major floods, large-scale oil leaks, flu epidemic or some other infectious disease outbreak, also, an oil price drop due to oil glut. Oil price may go up in the weeks prior to April 2022, peak around early-to- mid April and go down, possibly on concerns about a surplus of excess oil. There may also be concerns about an excessive number of vessels used for floating oil storage along with increased news about bad weather — taken together, this will increase the probability of an oil spill and other problems, esp. in late Mar to May, 2022.
Likely, a major reversal point for the oil prices (a new multi-year trend will likely begin).
Generally, increased focus on Neptunian matters (incl. oil price, oil spills, water pollution, clean water shortage, maritime accidents, pandemics, biowarfare, etc.) the entire year with periods of heightened risk for accidents and disasters. For ex., around Feb 1, 2025 could be one such disaster and it may result in a major oil price reversal. Apr 25, 2025 looks bad too… danger of an accident or disaster. Jul 21, 2025 may see some public event or announcement related to oil etc. and this event/news may elicit anger (e.g., the magnitude of pollution is covered up, the responsible party’s fine is deemed too low, some important details are obscured in a report, etc.). Aug 12, 2025 also looks tense. There may be multiple accidents/disasters/epidemic waves throughout the year; alternatively, one large disaster strikes early in 2025 (and/or a pandemic begins) and the rest of the year is spent on cleanup, restoration, repairs, and healing.
