SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise June 27 was the Primary cycle trough.  that puts us entering the 9th week. Early in a cycle is often the most bullish part. I was looking for a possible 50 week low to coincide with the Primary trough and the move off the June 27th Primary low seems to confirm this was the 50 week trough as well.

The question is whether we had a nominal 6 week cycle low on August 2nd or are we headed into a 1/2 Primary cycle ( nominal 9 week) with a range of  7.5 to 10.5 weeks.
It is quite possible Aug 15, which was a New All time High for the SP500 and other major market indices, was a 1/2 Primary cycle top.

From last weeks blog:
"For those who have followed this blog for awhile I've been looking at the week of
August 22nd through the first couple of weeks of September to be troublesome with potential war, major terrorist events or violent weather. This could also be pointing to banking problems or geophysical (earthquakes) events. I'm looking for earthquakes over 6 and I see there was an earthquake on August 19 in the southern Atlantic ocean at 7.4. As I write this blog post on August 20th there has been a 6.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan."

From this months subscriber report:
Sept 1  Violent weather or geophysical event. (this should be +- a week) Italy could have    been it.

From the Special Update sent to subscribers on August 14th.
"August 23, 24 Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. This conjunction occurs on the fixed                        star Antares. Now Mars and Saturn are the two malificts in                                                            Astrology. These are two war aspects. Added to this is Antares.
                        (Ptolemy...It causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality,                                                             broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and
                        makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to                                                       themselves by their own obstinacy.) The Sept 1 Solar eclipse will                                                        square Antares.
                        This looks like signatures for war and conflict. It could also be a                                                    geophysical event."

The earthquakes on August 24 in Italy was exactly on the date. There was also a 6.8 earthquake in Myanmar (Burma)  that day that got poor coverage in the western media.

This rough period is going to continue through late September and the next 2.5 weeks in particular. Subscribers have the critical dates and I will undoubtedly be issuing another "Special Update" as we progress through this rough period.

This weekend and early this coming week Mercury, Venus and Jupiter will be in a short conjunction. Some Astrologers think we may get a short respite where things seem somewhat better. Certainly Venus conjunct Jupiter appears positive and Mercury somewhat so. On further inspection we find Jupiter in Virgo, is in it's detriment. Also Venus enters Libra on August 29th a sign that often signifies a move down in stocks. I doubt any beneficial effect will be reflected on the markets or world events.

On August 30 Mercury turns Retrograde. This is a time of some confusion and misdirected communications. Mercury will be retrograde until September 22nd. That is an auspicious date as Mars transits over the Galactic Center and Mars being at it's peak of an "Out of Bounds" period.

The fact we are entering a period of confusion and problematic communications may add fuel to the fire that is the US Presidential Elections. Neither candidate appears very Presidential. I'm in Canada and have no dog in this fight but it should be obvious a change is needed in US politics and we could say the politics of other western countries, including Europe, US, Canada .....etc.

Mercury retrograde often marks a period where communication and such things as contracts are confusing. It is not a good time to sign contracts or agree to some arrangement that will carry on into the future. At the same time we are in the 10 day window before a powerful solar eclipse. This also marks a period where one shouldn't sign contracts or any type of longer term agreement. As noted in the recent "Special Update" such agreements or decisions are fated and will work out in ways that are not expected or intended. If possible wait on any agreements until after September 1st.

The immediate outlook is not pleasant with a strong solar eclipse transiting the very close Saturn / Neptune square at the end of the week. We could definitely see more geophysical events.

There has been so much lies and deceit over the last months I'm hoping the Saturn aspect to Neptune coming up will shed some light  on these lies and some truth comes forward. This is an aspect of fear, so watch for it. Watch the days around Sept 10 when Saturn is in waning square to Neptune. +- a couple of weeks. This is the 36 year aspect.

I'm still looking for a move down in stocks between now and  Sept 12th. Things that have seemed bottled up and stuck should be slowly released. In the USA Sagittarius rising chart Saturn is close to the Ascendant. Saturn here, is approx 180 degrees (a half cycle for Saturn) from the 9/11 event. This year Sept 11 is one day away from the exact square between Saturn and Neptune. The Saturn / Neptune square is the 36 year transit we have been talking about for months. Venus squares explosive Pluto on Sept 11. Of course Sept 11 has special meaning in the USA. We had also mentioned violent weather and the US Gulf states may be hit by very bad weather.

You can get a list of current earthquakes on the blog list under "USGS M 4.5+ Earthquakes".

Subscribers received a separate report dealing with the 3 eclipses, now 2 eclipses and the main Astrology aspects, that will occur over the next 3 weeks. They should be potent.

Following is the daily chart of the SP500.



Some points on this chart of the Sp500.
- The two light blue lines show a broadening top. Markets either bounce off the top line and move down or break through the rising line and then reverse down or follow the top line up.

- The bolder blue line is the Heliocentric Bradley indicator. Price started to move down after the August 15th all time high. August 26th, a sharp reversal in the indicator may be indicating a change in trend and speed up the decline. Subscribers see section 9 for definitions of the Bradley.

- At the bottom of the daily chart the average True Range (20 bars) usually puts in a low when price puts in a high. The weekly chart shows the SP500 very overbought.

If there was only one word to describe the next month and a half it would be "disruptive".
There are major aspects coming up and two eclipses. The first lunar eclipse was August 18th and nothing of note happened. It was within 6 cd's of the Italian and Myanmar earthquakes but I look to the Mars conjunct Saturn on the fixed star Antares as the driving force for the eclipse.

Mars moved "out of bounds" on  August 8th, this makes Mars more erratic and unpredictable than usual. Remember Mars just entered Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign normally aggressive and impulsive but not dominating. 

Search the blog for definitions you don't understand. If a subscriber, search section 9 of the monthly report. There are many other important events occurring in August and September. Subscribers have the dates. Late August and the first half of September could be a very difficult period.

A chart we have not shown for awhile is a daily chart of the SP500 with the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The average longitude of these planets is converted to price and displayed on the chart as the horizontal blue lines. Look back and you will see this has acted as good support / resistance. Currently t price has run up to the planetary average line but didn't break through. We'll follow this chart over the next couple of weeks. The planetary average currently bounced off the 2195 area.



Another chart is the daily SP500 with the Sun and Pluto price lines. Green is the Sun and black is Pluto. Notice, the SP500 has been stopped at the Pluto price line (black line) for some time and broke above the Pluto line on August 5th. Also note price often follows the Sun price line up.  The SP500 dipped on August 17th but was stopped at the Sun price line (green).  Price broke down through both the Sun and Pluto price lines on August 26th.



With some talk of raising rates by the FED the US$ may be reversing, and moving up.
See the following weekly chart of the US$ index. The purple squares are the Uranus Retrograde dates. Note the US$ often turns close to the Uranus Retrograde dates, both up and down.

Also note the red vertical lines on the right side of the chart. This is the 26 week cycle. This has also been close to short term changes in trend. This 26th week cycle occurred the same week as the Uranus retrograde and the US$ is going down.



When Saturn turned direct in August it is headed for the last exact waning square between Saturn and Neptune. This aspect has created much of the tension, lies and deceit we have seen for the last number of months. The date of the last exact square is September 10 but these longer term transits will color history for many months afterwards and need a broad orb. This time period may expose some long term deceit and there may be an illness or worse for a current world leader.

This transit will be coloring the period of time (all year). Lies and deceit continue

Saturn waning square Neptune
-in the middle of a 3 pass, 2 exact hits to come this year
Saturn is about social order, structure and regulations. Neptune can be politically unrealistic and a desire to avoid confrontation. It can be devious, underhanded and use subversive tactics.
This aspect is often present near times when there is a change in trend for interest rates or inflation. It can also be a period of epidemics, pandemics suffering, depression and money valuation problems. This could be a change in the world's reserve currency or issues around it. A large increase in precious metals is also possible as it is a money valuation issue. This 36 year aspect has been associated with political changes, reforms and development of socialism. One wonders in regards to epidemics and sickness, would this be natural illnesses or man-made. If you feel depressed or not at ease this aspect may be the cause. One of these planets may be hitting a planet in your personal horoscope.

Neptune can be the height of spirituality or illusion, delusion and deceit. Saturn is reality, Karmic debt, contraction, depression, sorrow and disappointment. When these planets meet look for political changes and reforms. Self sacrifice may come to the fore. This aspect seems to have a history with the British Royal Family.

One of the cycles associated with eclipses is the Metonic cycle. It is 19 years in length.
If we count back 19 years we have the time period for Princess Diana tragic death. Watch the news and see if something ties into the Royal Family. Perhaps uncovering some issue around the Family or Princess Diana's death.

Another cycle for eclipses is the Saros cycle. This is an 18 year, 11 day, 8 hour cycle. It marks the return of the Sun, Earth and Moon to approx. the same location. It takes 3 successive eclipses to return to the same area on Earth. Eclipses in a Saros cycle takes approx. 18 years so 18 * 3 = 54 years.

If we look at the Sept 1 Solar eclipse it is approx. 54 years from the Cuban Missile Crisis. There are nuclear issues with the U.S./ NATO locating nuclear tactical weapons in Europe on the Russian border. There are nuclear issues in Turkey as well. Before this is taken out of context, I am not forecasting nuclear war. This may be a time where nuclear issues come to the fore however.

On the following weekly chart of the DJIA, the red squares are Jupiter square Saturn, now past, and the green squares are Saturn square Neptune. It's between these two events that I have been looking for the Primary cycle low. We got it. After Sept 10 +- we will drop this chart.



The following chart shows a daily chart of the DJIA with the green squares which denote the Saturn / Neptune waning square. The previous two exact dates were during very volatile periods. I'm expecting the same as we approach the next instance on Sept 10th.



Harmonics
I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycle between the Sun and Saturn, which are the brown squares on the following daily chart. The next hits are Sept 1 then Sept 16th.. They are often at short changes in trend as seen on the August 1 date which was followed by two strong moves down.



Gold
I was looking at May 31 as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

This puts us entering the 13th week this coming week. We may have put in a 1/2 Primary cycle or 9 week cycle on July 21st. It could also have been the nominal 6 week cycle which has a range of 5 to 7 weeks.

I've been looking for Gold to move down and it has. I'm now looking for a bottom this coming week. Bear in mind with all the difficult transits a change in trend may wait another week.

I'm now looking for a short term low in Gold then up to put in a lower high before moving lower later in September. I'm looking for another low in early October.




The red vertical lines are the 14 cd cycle (calendar date) which has been at tops and bottoms for short term trend changes. The next date is Sept 8th.

On the following daily Gold charts there are the Venus (green), Jupiter (blue). These are the longitude of the planet converted to price. Note the big range day on Friday August 26th. The following day Venus and Jupiter are conjunct and the price lines crossed. Gold often makes a big move close to when the Venus and Jupiter price lines cross.



Crude
Feb 11 was the start of the previous Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough hit again on August 3rd. This was the day of the Sun / Neptune 24 harmonic. (see the price line chart below).  We are still early in a new Primary cycle starting the 4th week.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitude of the planets from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The longitude is converted to price and put on the chart. It has acted as good support / resistance in the past. Is this the pull back we often get near the start of a new Primary cycle and then headed up?  I think it is. I also assume this will be choppy. Currently the indicators don't confirm this scenario. I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune.

Geocentrically the Solar eclipse will oppose Neptune, the ruler of crude late in the week ahead. Heliocentrically there are a number of transits hitting Jupiter and Neptune from Sept 2nd through Sept 4th. These may move the price of crude or at least bring the price to wider attention.



Mentioned many times Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of crude. Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules, making it stronger. Jupiter is currently in Virgo the sign of it's detriment.

The following chart shows the Jupiter (blue) and Neptune (grey)  price lines. These have acted as good support / resistance. Note we have stopped on the Neptune price line again.

The red squares are the 24th harmonic between the Sun and Neptune. Amongst other things this harmonic is for a "short term change in trend". The next date is Sept 2. August 3rd was the nominal 18 week cycle low.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise June 27 was the Primary cycle trough.  that puts us entering the 8th week. February 11 was the trough of the previous Primary cycle. Early in a cycle is often the most bullish part. I was looking for a possible 50 week low to coincide with the Primary trough and the move off the June 27th Primary low seems to confirm this was the 50 week trough as well.

The question is whether we had a nominal 6 week cycle low on August 2nd or are we headed into a 1/2 Primary cycle ( nominal 9 week) with a range of  7.5 to 10.5 weeks.
The mid-point would be the week of August 29th. The August 2nd low seems to0 shallow.

For those who have followed this blog for awhile I've been looking at the week of
August 22nd through the first couple of weeks of September to be troublesome with potential war, major terrorist events or violent weather. This could also be pointing to banking problems or geophysical (earthquakes) events. I'm looking for earthquakes over 6 and I see there was an earthquake on August 19 in the southern Atlantic ocean at 7.4. As I write this blog post on August 20th there has been a 6.0 earthquake off the coast of Japan. Also the floods in Louisiana could be described as a disaster as well.

Subscribers have the more exact dates. There has been so much lies and deceit over the last months I'm hoping the aspects to Neptune coming up will shed some light  on these lies and some truth comes forward. Watch the days around Sept 10 when Saturn is in waning square to Neptune. +- a couple of weeks. This is the 36 year aspect.

I'm still looking for a move down in stocks between now and  Sept 12th. Things that have seemed bottled up and stuck should be slowly released. In the USA Sagittarius rising chart Saturn is close to the Ascendant. Saturn here, is approx 180 degrees (a half cycle for Saturn) from the 9/11 event. This year Sept 11 is one day away from the exact square between Saturn and Neptune. The Saturn / Neptune square is the 36 year transit we have been talking about for months. Venus squares explosive Pluto on Sept 11.

You can get a list of current earthquakes on the blog list under "USGS M 4.5+ Earthquakes".

Subscribers received a separate report dealing with the 3 eclipses that will occur over the next 5 weeks.

Following is the daily chart of the SP500.



Some points on this chart of the SP500.
- The two blue lines show a broadening top. Markets either bounce off the top line and move down or break through the rising line and then reverse down or follow the top line up.

- The bolder red line is the Geocentric Bradley indicator. Price started to rise from August 2nd. Mars entered Sagittarius on August 2nd. If this continues up, even if they are small moves then there may be a turn around August 19th. +- 2 td's. Subscribers see section 9 for definitions of the Bradley.

- At the bottom of the daily chart Momentum is flat and Stochastic's have turned down in the over bought area on the daily chart. The weekly chart shows the SP500 very overbought.

If there was only one word to describe the next month and a half it would be "disruptive".
There are two major aspects coming up and two eclipses. The first lunar eclipse was August 18th and nothing of note happened. We weren't expecting anything as this was a very weak eclipse.

Mars moved "out of bounds" on  August 8th, this makes Mars more erratic and unpredictable than usual. Remember Mars just entered Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign normally aggressive and impulsive but not dominating.  There is a potential war, violence or terrorist event involving Mars later in the month.

Search the blog for definitions you don't understand. If a subscriber, search section 9 of the monthly report. There are many other important events occurring in August and September. Subscribers have the dates. Late August and the first half of September could be a very difficult period.

The average longitude of these planets is converted to price and displayed on the chart as the horizontal blue lines. Look back and you will see this has acted as good support / resistance. Currently t price has run up to the planetary average line but didn't break through. We'll follow this chart over the next couple of weeks. The planetary average is currently at 2,195.



Another chart is the daily SP500 with the Sun and Pluto price lines. Green is the Sun and black is Pluto. Notice, the SP500 has been stopped at the Pluto price line (black line) for some time and broke above the Pluto line on August 5th. Look back and note this has happened before. Also note price often follows the Sun price line up.  The SP500 dipped on August 17th but was stopped at the Sun price line (green).   



With the dovish monetary policy one would expect the US$ to be moving down. See the following weekly chart of the US$ index. The purple squares are the Uranus Retrograde dates. Note the US$ often turns close to the Uranus Retrograde dates, both up and down. A turn here would be down in the US$.

Also note the red vertical lines on the right side of the chart. This is the 26 week cycle. This has also been close to short term changes in trend. This 26th week cycle occurred the same week as the Uranus retrograde and the US$ is going down.



When Saturn turned direct in August it is headed for the last exact waning square between Saturn and Neptune. This aspect has created much of the tension, lies and deceit we have seen for the last number of months. The date of the last exact square is September 10 but these longer term transits will color history for many months afterwards and need a broad orb. This time period may expose some long term deceit and there may be an illness or worse for a current world leader.

It takes 3 successive eclipses to return to the same area on Earth. Eclipses in a Saros cycle takes approx. 18 years so 18 * 3 = 54 years.

If we look at the Sept 1 Solar eclipse it is approx. 54 years from the Cuban Missile Crisis. There are nuclear issues with the U.S./ NATO locating nuclear tactical weapons in Europe on the Russian border. There are nuclear issues in Turkey as well.

They are often at short changes in trend as seen on the August 1 date which was followed by two strong moves down.



Gold
I was looking at May 31 as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

This puts us entering the 12th week this coming week. We may have put in a 1/2 Primary cycle or 9 week cycle on July 21st. It could also have been the nominal 6 week cycle which has a range of 5 to 7 weeks.

I've been looking for Gold to move down starting this coming week.



Heliocentric Mercury entered Sagittarius on Aug 9th. This often marks big range days and volatility for precious metals. PM's can move either way . I'm looking for PM's to move down.

The red vertical lines are the 14 cd cycle (calendar date) which has been at tops and bottoms for short term trend changes. The next date is August 25th.

On the following daily Gold charts there are the Venus (green), Jupiter (blue). These are the longitude of the planet converted to price. Gold often makes a big move close to when the Venus and Jupiter price lines cross. They crossed on July 29th and Gold had a big day. The next day they cross is August 29th.



Crude
Feb 11 was the start of the previous Primary cycle. The crude cycle trough hit again on August 3rd. This was the day of the Sun / Neptune 24 harmonic. (see the price line chart below).

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitude of the planets from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The longitude is converted to price and put on the chart. It has acted as good support / resistance in the past.



Mentioned many times Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of crude. Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules, making it stronger. Jupiter is currently in Virgo the sign of it's detriment.

The following chart shows the Jupiter (blue) and Neptune (grey)  price lines. These have acted as good support / resistance. Note we have stopped on the Jupiter price line again.

The red squares are the 24th harmonic between the Sun and Neptune. Amongst other things this harmonic is for a "short term change in trend". The next date is Sept 2. August 3rd was the nominal 18 week cycle low.
