For ongoing background influences for 2018-2035, see Long Term Astrology Forecast post (no new entries this week). 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 12, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%). Positive news about international agreements, long distance travel/shipments, import/export, immigration laws (or laws governing international travel), and communication/transportation companies in general.
Jul 9-14, 2021 — Increased news about sports, dance, female athletes, or some artistic or even romantic activity that combines beautiful body movement with high degree of athletic ability (gymnastics, ballet, trapeze, horse back riding?). 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. If a new project, service, or a product is introduced at this time in the related areas (e.g., a new athletic fashion line designed by a prominent star, makeup that stays put in the water or while exercising, dating service for famous people, dating service that combines entertainment with sports, an app that helps to exercise while having fun, etc.), it may be more popular and profitable than expected. Finally, there may be some news about a famous couple where one person is an entertainer (e.g., an actor) and the other, an athlete (e.g., a famous couple gets married or they have a baby).
Jul 11-13, 2021 — Positive news for the communication, transportation, and publishing businesses (e.g., improved opportunities for expansion, new contracts, expansion to new locations, increased sales, etc.). We may also hear about increased international negotiations or agreements — these may go better than expected and/or proceed faster than expected (as in getting all green traffic lights and getting to the end point faster because there were no obstacles to slow down the movement). Lastly there may increased focus on immigration, international travel, education, and long distance transportation — the development will probably be positive (e.g., the travel/shipments have increased, international travel has become easier, education has become more accessible, travelers or students have more options to choose from, etc.).
USA: Jul 12-13, 2021 — Positive news about workforce, healthcare, governmental contracts, and social services. Also, positive news about earnings and retail sales.
JUL 13, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (60-65%).
JUL 14, 2021 (WED): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).
USA: Jul 14-15, 2021 — Increased (and likely positive) news about international agreements, immigration, long distance travel and transportation, import/export, as well as education. Some agreements or contracts may be reached without too many disagreements, new shipping routes or locations may open up, new transportation modes may become available, new schooling options may be offered, etc. At least, new goals to improve these areas may be announced or new projects may begin.
USA: Jul 14-16, 2021 — Increased (and likely positive) news about the retail sales, as well as communication and transportation industries (e.g., some project goes through, a contract is signed, a new route opens, a new leader is appointed, a budget is clarified, goals are set, etc.). Transportation may be over or under water, or in a coastal area. Another area that may see some positive news is related to agriculture, food production, restaurants, fishing, marine life, and/or water (e.g., more water becomes available for the crops, fishing businesses experience improved circumstances, restaurants or grocery stores see higher demand in general and especially on seafood, etc).
JUL 15, 2021 (TH): Medium influence; market may go up (55-60%).
JUL 16, 2021 (FR): Medium influence; market may go down (60%). Down influence is stronger in the afternoon.
Jul 16-19, 2021 — There may be minor concerns about debt, loans, rates, banks’ assets, and so on (e.g., that some governmental regulations or debt would negatively affect banking sector or financial industry). Possibly increased focus on the value of gold.
Jul 18-19, 2021 — Gold, and probably also silver, may go up.
>>>> Glance ahead (updated):
NEW Global: Jul 23-26, 2021 — Increased focus on the value of gold (and silver). Gold, and probably also silver, may drop.
Updated Global/USA: Jul 27-30, 2021 — 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.). Update (07.12.21): Another possibility is an accident (esp. a fire, explosion, or some attack) involving transportation (most likely cars or airplanes)— for ex., there may be a recall by some car manufacturer, problems with international travel destination, airplane manufacturer experiencing losses, etc. The value of the associated business may swing wildly — possibly a large drop followed by an up swing due to investors buying stock at a low price. Additionally or alternatively, the volatility may be due to a legal decision of some sort — possibly a previous decision or law being recalled, or a legal approval being unexpectedly postponed. Given transits to the U.S. natal chart at that time, the situation may be related to a U.S. business — in particular, an aerospace-related business, an airline, an airplane manufacturer, car manufacturer, a communication company, a major retailer, and/or a major on-line services provider. There may be some major event or an announcement in the related domains (also possibly related to education/teaching). This may range from an announcement about a new exciting aerospace project (e.g., a new satellite being launched), a technological breakthrough, to a power grid outage, cloud services provider outage, car or airplane manufacturer recall, an airline declaring bankruptcy, restraints on import/export of cars or some related parts, or some other similar event that may be exciting or shocking.
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.
NEW Global: Dec 15, 2021 (+- couple of days) — On Dec 15, Mars will join South Node of the Moon (aka Ketu) — This astrological signature often coincides with notable accidents and disasters, explosions, fires, military escalations and so on. Also, around mid-Dec 2021 expect gold/silver to peak (possibly due to some financial policy announcements out of the U.S.).
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).
NEW Global: Sep 14 – Oct 30, 2022 (especially in October, in particular Oct 11) — Final pass of Saturn square to Uranus, while Mars+Moon will also square Neptune —> Around Oct 7-15, 2022, expect maritime transportation accidents, fire at an oil rig, oil spill, fighting over oil, anger over oil prices, arguments over oil/gas-related projects, gas leak, chemical incidents, flare up of infectious diseases, concerns about some pharmaceutical, etc. Also, increased risk of a large market drop, esp. around Oct 8-14, 2022.
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.
