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.
OCT 04, 2021 (MON): Medium influence; market may go down (55%). Down influence is stronger in the late afternoon; market may be up in the morning. Possible positive news about retail sales, negotiations, agreements among members of some larger organization, discussions proceeding smoother than usual. Also, increased focus on pharma, healthcare, oil, gas, chemicals, water, navy, maritime shipments, beverages, movies, religious activities, etc. — there may be slight concerns or disagreements about some details — we may hear about unexpected changes in requirements, regulations, or costs (e.g., the exact dose, components, shipping route, etc.).
Oct 4-10, 2021 — Increased news about overheating, fires, racing, fighting, athletes, sports, military, and weapons. Negotiations or deals discussed this week may take on a more passionate tone than usual (esp. on Oct 6 and 10) — there may be a sense of intense competition and emotions running high. If a balance or union is needed to achieve some deal or to make a decision, it may be achieved on Oct 6 and/or 10. In sports, some records may be achieved or some athletes may have spectacular performances (esp. fighting, racing, and any risky, dangerous, or extreme sports).
USA: ALL WEEK — As a part of the ongoing transit of Pluto to US Mercury (see ALL WEEK section below for details) — Increased focus on negotiations, deals, contracts, commerce, transportation, communication, and education. While Pluto transit progresses very slowly, it will be fairly precise this week. The effect of the transit may manifest as negotiations that involve manipulations, power plays, extortions, or some other underhanded activities. Alternatively, the negotiations and deals may involve underground or hidden locations (e.g., mines, underground storage, tunnels, caves, cemeteries, prisons) and companies that generate power or clean up trash (esp. nuclear power plants and recycling plants). The news about companies in these areas may involve hidden/secret plans, taxation, insurance fraud, or pollution (e.g., a company is suspected of hiding evidence of environmental pollution, some entity engages in blackmailing or tax avoidance). Since Pluto/Mercury opposition activates 2nd and 8th houses in the US chart, issues related to finance, banks, earnings, taxes, insurance, rates, currency value, etc. may all come up — again, there may be concerns about hidden or manipulative activities.
USA: Oct 4, 2021 — Increased focus on oil, gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, navy, water (e.g., excessive precipitation, hurricanes, water erosion, or contamination), beverages, religion, and drugs. Also, increased focus on military, weapons, sports, and risky activities, such as gambling. Some issues may be featured in the news due to disagreements, pushback, protests/opposing views, or contradictory statements.
China: Oct 4-12 (esp. 6-9), 2021 — Concerns or arguments over issues related to debt, loans, rates, taxes, insurance, tariffs, etc. The concerns may be due to some deceptive or confusing activities that are hard to trace. Also, problems related to oil, gas, floods, pollution, chemicals, infectious diseases, navy, or maritime shipments (e.g., there is an accident, a vessel is attacked or catches fire, there are arguments over a shipping route, etc.). Around Oct 8-10 (esp. the 9th), there may be some important announcements related to finance, banks, currency, rates, debt, taxes, insurance, construction, as well as navy, maritime shipments, floods, pollution, oil, gas, and pharma. The events or announcements may be about some quick decisive actions that would affect large groups of people.
It’s possible that the news will feature Evergrande Group and in particular, Evergrande New Energy Auto. On Oct 9, 2021, transiting Sun, Mercury Retrograde, and Mars will all conjunct China’s North Node in the 2nd house of earnings/finance while precisely squaring the Nodes in the chart of Evergrande New Energy Auto (founded on Aug 28, 2019). I can’t find the exact date when the parent Evergrande Group was founded but it was in 1996. That year, Moon Nodes opposed the Nodes in China’s chart and Pluto was in the early degrees of Sagittarius. Currently, Moon Nodes are transiting over these same Sagittarius degrees. This suggests that transits on Oct 4-12 (esp. the 9th), 2021 may indeed form difficult transits to the chart of the Evergrande Group.
OCT 05, 2021 (TUE): Medium influence; market may go up (55%).
OCT 06, 2021 (WED): Strong influence; market may go down (60%). Greater than usual market volatility regardless of the direction. New Moon.
Oct 6-20, 2021 — Events occurring around the New Moon (Oct 6) will color the next 2 weeks and intensify/reach peak around the Full Moon (Oct 20). New Moon on Oct 6 is joined by Mars (competitive or aggressive activities, military, sports, racing, fighting, weapons, surgery, fires, sharp objects, accidents, etc.) and is in Libra (deals, reaching a balanced decision, parties entering into an agreement, fair and balanced judgment, and so on). This indicates that some heated negotiations or deals where sides are competing with each other rather than cooperating may be in the news for the next couple of weeks. By the Full Moon on Oct 20, any such difficult discussion or competitive activities may become quite intense and parties may either break off the negotiations or finally reach an agreement because one side caves in under pressure (Mars+Sun, Pluto, and Moon will form a t-square on Oct 20, 2021 = tough negotiations, power plays, strong pressure, accidents, fires, protests, etc.).
OCT 07, 2021 (TH): Strong influence; market may go down (60%).
OCT 08, 2021 (FR): Strong influence; market may go down (65%). Concerns about earnings, currencies, cryptocurrencies, taxes, rates, debt, etc. Some banks, financial institutions, currencies, or income sources may be seen as more unstable or volatile than usual. Some ongoing discussions, negotiations, or deals may be undergoing serious heated discussions, which also may spook investors and raise concerns about stability.
Oct 8-10 (esp. the 9th), 2021 — Important announcements about finance, commercial activities, trade, shipments, transportation, and communication companies (incl. social media). This may be an international trade agreement, legal changes affecting international travel/shipments, regulations on international trade/movement, large international deal involving a car manufacturer, regulations affecting communication companies that have offices in multiple countries, regulations affecting a social media app, a sale/acquisition of a popular social media / communication / transportation company, and so on. The news may also feature a prominent female leader (esp. from communication, transportation, or education domain) — for ex., the female leader is [re-]elected, appointed to a more prominent position, or gains wider recognition. Lastly, some social media influencer may be widely featured in the news (e.g., because they travel somewhere or become known in some new international location), or, we may hear about social media activity by a prominent individual/celebrity (e.g., someone’s account is suspended or their post goes viral).
OCT 11 (MON) — Looks less tense than the prior several days. Market may go up after some issue(s) is(are) resolved on Oct 8-10, or at least a decision is postponed pending review.
>>>> Glance ahead (repeated from last week):
Global: Oct 18-24 (esp. the 22nd through early 23rd), 2021 — Increased likelihood of military tensions, protests, large earthquakes, accidents or attacks. The situations may involve a mine, underground storage, nuclear power, spying/hacking, or some secret “underground” activities.
Global: Nov 8-19, 2021 — The week of Nov 8, Mars and Mercury will square Saturn and the following week of Nov 15, Mars will oppose Uranus. This may manifest as large quakes, accidents, tensions, possible problems for steel, iron, metals (tariffs? shortage?) the week of Nov 8. Then during the week of Nov 15, there may be increased problems for airplanes, aerospace and IT, accompanied by power and service outages (e.g., cloud provider or social media platform). Also, sudden surprises or upsets related to earnings, finance, taxes (on crypto?), tariffs, Forex and crypto — expect greater than usual volatility and large swings (down and then up?). Lastly, there may be excitement or anxious expectations related to some rule or laws (esp. affecting international trade, airlines, electric power, batteries, electric cars, IT, aerospace, and social media platforms).
USA/France: Nov 2021 – June 2022 — AUKUS (a trilateral security pact between Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, announced on 15 September 2021) – On Sep 15, 2021 Sun/Neptune opposition squared France’s Saturn in the 9th house in Sagittarius (difficulties and confusion in international relationships). At the same time, Sun passed over Neptune (navy) in the US chart, while transiting Neptune opposed US Neptune; the Sun/Neptune transiting opposition squared US Mars (military). In general, France’s Saturn (responsibility, losses, difficulties) opposes US Mars (action, military). Also, the North Node of the Moon conjuncted France’s North Node within minutes on the day of the announcement. Moreover, the Nodes turned Rx on 9-13-21 indicting a reversal in some important direction. Transits by and to Moon Nodes occur during events that affect large groups of people and have widespread effect. The France’s (and currently transiting) Nodes are in Gemini (NN) and Sagittarius (SN) indicating focus on transportation / communication / commerce / laws /international relations / immigration.
Transiting Neptune (navy, confusion, deception, water, chemicals, pharma, contamination, etc.) will continue to hover around the same degrees of Prices (20-25) for months. This means that issues in the areas above (navy as well as any other Neptunian areas) that first came up in mid-Sep 2021 could drag on through the spring – early summer of 2022. Periodically, as faster planets, incl. Sun and Mars, form difficult aspects to these same degrees (conjunction, square or opposition), there may be increased tensions and/or follow up developments. In particular, for France early Nov, 2021 (esp. Nov 3-6, 2021 +-1 week) look tense — Neptune will square France’s Saturn while Mars will be going over France’s Jupiter and Neptune (assertive actions involving international partners, disputes related to navy, great hopes, promise of [almost unlimited] expansion, arguments over legal issues, passing new laws in a hurry). After that, the following time periods may bring additional developments related to Neptunian domains, incl. navy (for France and/or US): Dec 2021 (esp. 7-9, 11-17, 25-31), Jan 10-18, 2022; March 1-13, 2022; March 23 – Apr 30, 2022 (esp. Apr 4-5); May 11-19, 2022; June 10-17, 2022.
Global/USA: 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 and in August may be revisited 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) this year will be around Dec 15, 2021. Dec 15, 2021 is also a critical date when there may be some serious and potentially dangerous events (e.g., a major earthquake, attack, accident, military escalation, etc.) — this will be due to a tightening square between Uranus and Saturn as well as a Mars to South Node conjunction. Under the Mars (and Mercury) square to the Moon nodes, a powerful 7.2 earthquake struck Haiti on the morning of August 14th 2021; as of this writing (08.15.21), there were over a thousand killed and thousands injured. On the same day, there was also a deadly airplane accident (Russian Be-200 firefighting plane crashed into Turkish mountain) and a 6.9 quake in Alaska.
Updated 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.). Update (08.15.21): Last week, I predicted “an accident, arguments, tense negotiations, or problems related to air travel… etc.” for Aug 10-12, 2021 — the dates of Mars squaring the Moon Nodes (1 degree orb). There were several tragic developments on the morning of Aug 14 (7.2 earthquake in Haiti, 6.9 earthquake in Alaska, and a firefighting plane crash in Turkey). The events occurred when Mars was 2 degrees past the exact square, so a bit past my prediction. The reason that the accident and quakes occurred on the morning of the 14th rather than on the 10-12th appears to be that the Mercury was also lining up right behind Mars to form a square to the Nodes, so the events took place when the Nodes exactly squared the Mercury/Mars midpoint. At the the same time, transiting Moon activated the Saturn/Uranus square (t-square with Moon, Saturn and Uranus). Globally, we can expect similar situations (an airplane accident, strong quake, etc.) to come up again in mid-Dec 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).
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.
Global/USA/China/Turkey: Nov 1-11, 2022 (esp. Nov 8, 2022) — Tense time. Increased probability of a large earthquake (esp. for China and Turkey), an industrial accident, plane crash, an airline experiencing problems, or a spike in militarized activities. Total Lunar eclipse will take place on November 8, 2022 and it also happens to be the day when Sun, Moon, and Moon Nodes (Rahu and Ketu) will receive multiple difficult transits. The events occurring around a Lunar (or Solar) eclipse are typically considered of greater than usual importance and continue to have an effect for a few months following the eclipse. In the past, under similar transits in August-September 1999, there was a 7.6 earthquake in Turkey (İzmit earthquake on August 17, 1999) and a 7.7 quake in Taiwan (September 21, 1999). In the US, November 8, 2022 is the date of the midterm elections. Globally, there may be increased market volatility and sudden or surprising announcements or value fluctuations involving currencies, crypto, taxes, rates, loans, debt, banks and financial sector.
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.
Update (07.18.21): So far in 2021, we experienced a number of disasters during close Saturn/Uranus squares. On Feb 7, 2021, 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. In late June through mid-July 2021, we had a number of large industrial fires (incl. in Morris, IL; Romania, and Bangladesh), as well as a couple of explosions that involved trucks filled with fireworks in the US (Los Angeles, CA and Ocean City, MD). The biggest disastrous events during the late June/early July transit were the tragic building collapse in Surfside, FL and an assassination of the Haitian President Jovenel Moise. The next set of dates when we can expect a similarly tense/dangerous period is the second half of Dec 2021. In particular, Dec 15 (+- couple of days) may see a notable accident or disaster as in addition to the Saturn/Uranus square we will have transiting Mars passing over the South Node of the Moon. In general, when Mars (or Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and/or Chiron) form a tense aspect to one of the Moon Nodes, we see a notable event (often an accident, earthquake, or some industrial disaster) that affects a large group of people (either directly or indirectly, such as through coverage in the news).
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).
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, drugs, bioweapons, submarines, and “unseen” treats, incl. hacking/spying). This influence will likely intensify the week of Aug 30, 2021 — at that time, we can expect a repeat of events/themes similar to those that were prominent in late March – early April 2021. This influence is associated with the stressful transit of Neptune to the US Mars and Neptune which will form a t-square among all three. Neptune = confusion, water, drugs, oil, chemicals, navy, etc. Mars = military, fights, fires, heat, aggression, sports, competition, etc. In the US chart, Mars is in Gemini (communication, transportation, commerce), it rules the 5th house of gambling, stock market, risky or creative ventures and it is in the 7th house of partners/enemies/relations. The stressful t-square among all three planets (Mars and Neptune in the US natal chart, and the transiting Neptune) indicates confusing circumstances related to military/sports/stock market, bad weather involving excessive precipitation, water contamination, maritime accidents, and various upsets involving related domains (oil, pharma, navy, chemicals, floods, deception, etc.).
USA & Global: For the US, Aug, 2021 – Feb, 2024 (esp. +- 1-2 weeks around Mar 1, 2022, +- 1-2 weeks around Aug 1, 2022, Nov 2022 – mid Jan 2023, +- 1-2 weeks around Apr 1, 2023, Jul-Aug 2023, Oct-Nov 2023) — General themes of confusion or miscommunication related to military, leadership, sports, stock markets and any risky activities (gambling, racing, fighting, etc.) will persist as transiting Neptune will continue to make difficult aspects to the US Mars, Neptune, and then enter into the 4th house (homeland security, food supply, safety, stability, farming, land, real estate, banks’ assets, savings, etc.). Difficult transits of Neptune are generally associated with excessive precipitation, pollution, confusion, deception, and lack of clarity. For the US, Neptune’s transit may bring, among other things, excessive flooding, problems with chemicals (e.g., misuse of fertilizers, water supply pollution, etc.), problems with misuse of medicines/drugs (rise in addictions?), real estate problems (flood damage, soil erosion, contamination, mortgages “underwater,” entities re-defining zones or some geographical/administrative units, etc.), concerns about some banks engaging in deceptive practices, and problems for oil industry (lack of clear direction, pollution, spills).
During the same time frame, the US will experience a slowly unfolding Pluto return as well as an opposition of the transiting Pluto the US Mercury (in the 8th house of investments/rates, ruling the 7th and 10th houses of partnerships and leadership, respectively). In the US chart, Pluto is in the 2nd house of banks/money and rules the 12th house of secrets, endings, hidden places, navy, oil, damp/wet places, hospitals, elder care facilities, etc. Difficult transits of Pluto are associated with the revelation of secrets, spying, unearthing previously buried things (can be literally like excavating something and burying it elsewhere), scandals, violent attacks, power struggles, power changing hands, changes in how the power is generated/used (e.g., by power plants, powerful corporations, governmental structures, individual leaders, etc.), and the overall destruction of some old ways to rebuild from the scratch (police reform? governmental changes?).
In the summer and fall of 2023, there will be a few difficult transits, for the US and globally, indicative of major industrial accidents, disasters (e.g., fires, plane crashes, shipwrecks, etc.), bad weather events (e.g., major storms), earthquakes, violent attacks or military coups (esp. July-Aug and Oct-Nov 2023, in particular around July 31, Aug 13, Aug 21, Oct 4, and Nov 11). In 2023, during these same time periods (Jul-Aug and Oct-Nov), there may be increased activities or problems involving recycling facilities, mines, underground storage, power plants and especially nuclear power plants/weapons (e.g., a large storm causes a flood and a temporary shutdown of a nuclear plant).
China: Aug 2 – Oct 8, 2021; Apr 18 – May 24, 2022; Dec 5, 2022 – Mar 11, 2023 — Increased focus on international relations and partnerships, esp. those that involve military and weapons deals or sports. Some surprising deals may be reached, agreements with unusual partners may be entered into, old agreements may suddenly be broken, and in general, there may be many surprises. Additionally, there may be increased focus on sports, communication, and transportation — these areas may see sudden changes and innovations, but there may also be an increased number of accidents, service outages (esp. due to sudden fires/explosions), and abrupt turn-abouts (e.g., a partner is added and then suddenly dropped, a leader is promoted and then suddenly removed).
Haiti: Aug 2021 – Sep 2022 — A series of difficult transits may bring problems for the country in the form of sudden upsetting events (e.g., quakes or bad storms). During this time, the country may undergo a process of re-birth of some sort where a previous established order is replaced with a new one. In particular, there may be earthquakes and problems with power losses. At the same time, power plants and/or networks of all sorts as well as airport facilities can be rebuilt or significantly revamped — this may be a planned improvement or as a response to some damaging event. In Aug-Oct 2021, Uranus (sudden jolts, accidents, electricity, airports, networks, power loss) is tightly square the country’s Moon Nodes (wide spread meaningful events affecting public), while at the same time transiting Moon Nodes will square the country’s Pluto (death/rebirth, major transformation, massive power, power plants, power struggles, mining, underground, recycling [turning old trash into valuable power source]). In 2022, several more time periods will see inauspicious transits to the country’s chart (mainly to Pluto, Nodes, Mars, Saturn, and/or Neptune): the end of Jan, early Mar, late Mar, April to May, mid to late Sep. At this times, there is an increased chance of a bad weather event, power losses, power struggles, or some major reforms to improve infrastructure/build a new power plant/open a new recycling facility/etc.
OIL: 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.
- May 13 – Jul 27, 2021; Dec 29, 2021 – May 10, 2022; Oct 28 – Dec 20, 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.
- 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.
