Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded

From last weeks blog post which was very close.
"If this retracement at 2051.41 does not hold this could be a big down move."

It appears we tested the 2051 area but close above it on May 6th.

For the SP500, cycle-wise Feb 11 was the Primary cycle trough.  1 that started on Aug 24th. Feb 11th was a slightly lower low than Jan 20th low. Jan 20th was the low for a number of other indices. Feb 11th starts a new nominal 18 week cycle in the SP500 and we are entering the 13th week. We most often see a nominal 6 week cycle to start a new nominal 18 week cycle and this time was no exception. The crest is MT and the trough is MB on the following daily chart. The nominal 6 week cycles has a range of 5 to 7. The second nominal 6 week cycle may have seen it's top on April 20. This may be the top to the current nominal 18 week cycle as well.

Notice that price is below the 15 day sma and almost on the 45 day sma's. We may be seeing the trough for the second nominal 6 week cycle shortly, in which case we would probably be going up. Price went through a trend line (light blue) which started on Sept 29, 2015. If price fails to get above this trend line early next week we could see a fall. So we have conditions that point in both directions, so we normally sit and watch but in this case I think the cycle timing with Jupiter turning Direct and an Inferior conjunction between the Sun and Mercury points to a move down. Countering this is a grand trine between the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto mentioned further down.

May has a number of critical dates which could indicate turn dates and / or violent events. Subscribers will have those dates.

We are in the middle of a Mercury retrograde period with Mercury turning retrograde on April 28. Monday May 9th is the inferior conjunction between the Sun and Mercury. The inferior conjunction is the one where Mercury is between the Earth and the Sun. The superior conjunction occurs when Mercury is on the far side of the Sun. The order of the planets is then Earth - Sun - Mercury. Only Mercury and Venus can have both an inferior and superior conjunction. They are the two planets that are inside the Earths' orbit.

The Mercury retrograde period is known for problems with communication / electrical equipment and communications in general. It is known as the trickster and in the markets can often result in changes to investor / trader  outlook only to change their minds.

The following chart shows some history. The S and the I are the superior and inferior conjunctions. Note the inferior conjunction is often at sharp turns, often near bottoms.

Mercury will turn direct again on May 22nd.

Also on May 9th Jupiter turns direct. During Jupiter's retrograde period Gold made a large move up. Also during that period Mars transited through Scorpio. Mars in Scorpio has a history of moves up . Mars is now retrograde and will enter Scorpio, going backwards on May 27th. This may be another period when Gold moves up fast.

Jupiter stationary direct periods can result in sharp moves, both up and down +- 1 week. May 9th +- 1 td should be important this coming week in many markets. Further down, under Gold, we'll discuss heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius.

We still have 2 slow moving parallels which were exact again on April 24 for the Jupiter parallel Uranus and Saturn parallel Pluto on April 28th. Parallels are aspect of declination. Parallel aspects between the slow moving planets can be in orb for many weeks / months and they therefore can effect long periods of time.

Declination is the measurement of planets north or south of the celestial equator which is the Earth's equator extended out into space. Look at declinations as a vertical measurement. It is the angle a planets make to the celestial equator. Look at the normal aspects in longitude (ex. 23degrees, 34minutes in Taurus)  as a horizontal measurement.

When 2 planets are at the same declination point they are said to be in parallel. If the two planets are at the same declination point but one is North and one is South of the celestial equator, they are said to be contra parallel.

Jupiter parallel Uranus may see exaggeration, big sudden surprises and / or sudden reversals of statements or policies.

From last weeks blog:
"The Jupiter / Neptune opposition can indicate deceit, illusion, delusion and with both squaring Saturn, the planet of fear we could see some dramatic moves."

And from last weeks Market Watch on May 2, Steve Goldstein
“Key U.S. economic information may have been leaked ahead of its release, judging from the price moves in key equity and bond futures contracts, according to a study released Monday. The European Central Bank published a working paper arguing that seven out of 21 market moving announcements show evidence of “substantial informed trading” before the official release time. The authors looked at price movements 30 minutes before that data’s release and studied the movements in futures on the S&P 500 index and 10-year Treasury note. They did this on 21 indicators from January 2008 to March 2014…”

This type of behavior is exactly what we would expect from Jupiter opposing Neptune and emphasized when we have a T-square with Saturn, which we have right now.
The other major long term aspect, Saturn waning square to Neptune (part of the T-square) carries on for a number of months with the last exact hit on Sept 10th but it will be in effect months afterwards.

What other lies and deceit are being perpetrated? With Neptune active by transit it may take some time for the truth to appear. As someone said, "There's is never only one cockroach."

The new nominal 18 week cycle which started on Feb 11 is therefore forecast to end as a trough approx. 18 weeks hence. That puts us in the week of June 13 with a range from  May 30 to July 4th. If you look at that week we have the Saturn / Neptune square exact that week with Neptune turning retrograde on June 13th. These are the two main reasons why I'm looking at mid to late June as a significant low. There are other reasons which will be included in the subscribers report.

It could also be a time that epidemics break out or lingering disease around that time. This could also involve water bourn diseases.

Other cycles coming up are May 23 when we have Fibonacci 377 weeks from the
March 6, 2009 low.

With the longer term market cycles we use the Astrological aspects and Astrological events to determine a more exact time. Note: I have taken off the brief description of the Uranus / Pluto waning square. Longer term geocentric Astrological cycles that are coming up include:

On the following weekly chart of the DJIA, the red squares are Jupiter square Saturn and the green squares are Saturn square Neptune.

The next Jupiter / Saturn square is May 26. The next Saturn / Neptune square is
June 17. We should have a low near this timeframe.

Jupiter waning square Saturn

"The business cycle and direct effect on European history. Major changes will be occurring in Europe as result of the refuge migration. There is a major sign change coming up when Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct in 2020. More on this 240 year conjunction in a future post."
Saturn 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 horoscope.

With the above being quite negative aspects we should mention there is a grand trine between the Sun, Jupiter and Pluto. The Sun is also conjunct Venus. This would be construed as very positive. This is in orb through May 13, 1 trading day away from an important cycle date.

The next 2 charts are daily charts of the SP500, and the Russell 2000. The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto on both charts This average is converted to price and displayed on the charts. Notice how well they have acted as support and resistance.

The next chart is the Russell 2000. This index is subject to far less manipulation than the SP500. Notice how well it respects the Astrological average price lines. It's too bad we have to bring up manipulation but the reality is, it happens. Here, the blue lines again are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter through Pluto converted to price. The Russell has fallen back to under the 1132 average longitude.

Other longer term cycles that we have been following may have found their trough on Jan 20 or Feb 11. This would include the 4 year and 6.5 year cycles. To confirm these cycles I'm waiting for the cycle low I'm expecting in June 2016. If Jan 20 and Feb 11 are the lows this would help explain the sharp move up starting in February along with certain phone calls mentioned last week. Assuming 2009 low was an 18 year cycle low, we may be looking at a 9 year cycle low late 2017 - 2018. The Kitchin cycle (3.3 years) we had been following probably troughed out in the August 015 lows.

I was asked for my long term view and here it is. I'm looking for the world wide economy to be basically flat to down until 2020. This coincides with a long term Astrological phenomenon known as Tigonalis which involves the Jupiter / Saturn conjunctions. Every 240 years the conjunction of these planets changes elements. In 2020 the Jupiter/ Saturn conjunction will occur in Aquarius, a fixed, air sign. I expect dramatic technological developments leading into this time which should be, like the internet, life-changing developments.

I will look at a number of harmonics over the next few weeks. This week will be the 24th harmonic.
"Harmonic astrology as proposed by John Addey, is that the angular distance between planetary positions, or the projected position of planets onto the ecliptic plane, produces in some as yet undiscovered way a wave form. Each planet acts as the node or crest of a wave function and there is an effect on life on our planet from these undiscovered waves."
-- John Addey

On the last post I was showing the 7th harmonic. Creative thinking and original insights.
Two harmonics calculated last week were:

Earth / Venus              April 27th
Earth / Saturn              June 3rd

At this point April 27th was the start of a move down in the SP500. Following is the daily chart with the Sun / Venus and Sun / Saturn with the 7th harmonic dates. Next dates:
Earth / Venus              July 15             (red squares)
Earth / Saturn              June 3rd          (brown squares)

This chart also has the 45 cd (red) calendar days and the 24 cd (blue) cycles. The 45 cd is due to hit May 16 and the 24 cd on May 17th.

Looking at the geocentric 24th harmonic in the Sun / Venus (red squares). We are looking for a relatively short term change in trend. The next date is June 6, 2016.

June 3rd and 6th may be very important dates.

The brown squares are the geocentric 24th harmonic for the Sun / Saturn. The next date is May 19th then June 3rd.

I use the harmonics to help the timing of other events.

I'm now looking at March 28th as the start of a new nominal 18 week cycle   1 trough.

This puts us entering either the 7th week of a new Primary cycle. I was looking  for a pullback, that may have been it with 3 down days in the price of Gold this week. Bear in mind we still in a time period with confusing Astros.

Following is a daily chart for Gold. The orange vertical lines are a 14 cd (calendar day) cycle which has been at highs and lows and hit again on April 21 and May 5th. The next date is May 19th. There is also a 55 td cycle on the chart which hits again on May 12th. Also this week heliocentric Mercury enters Sagittarius. Gold often has big moves when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius, both up and down, with a emphasis on up.

The date I'm most interested in for Gold is when geocentric Mars re-enters Scorpio on May 27th. Mars was in Scorpio for most of the Gold rise from late 2015.

Price has moved below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 sma is above the 45 sma. This all looks very bullish.

On the following daily Gold charts there are the Venus (green), Jupiter (blue) and Uranus (purple) price lines. These are the longitude of the planet converted to price. Note the Gold price has been following the Venus price line up and as happens so many times, when the Venus and Jupiter lines cross you get a big move (up or down). Gold went up and touched the next Venus price line and fell back to close just above the Jupiter price line.

There is a history of moves in Gold prices when Jupiter turns direct, which it does on Monday, May 9th. With Mercury in inferior conjunction with the Sun May 9 may see changes in a number of markets.

Feb 11 had another lower low and is now marked a Primary cycle trough which has us starting the 13th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. Bear in mind there are geopolitical issues affecting crude which can effect the price quickly and directly. Recently there have been rumors of changes in top power echelons of Saudi Arabia's as it pertains to oil. With potential changes to the Saudi power structure one would think crude prices would be going up.

Crude can be looked upon as a good example of the current transits with the T-square between Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn. Although Saturn is discipline and control and is the apex of the T-square, the Jupiter / Neptune oppositions is deceit, quickly changing your mind and actions, extremes that eventually can't be controlled. We may be approaching the crest for this crude cycle. Bear in mind the comments made above about Jupiter turning direct on May 9th. Jupiter is a co-ruler of oil.

I've also put the planetary average longitude of the planets Jupiter through Pluto converted to price. You can see they are good support / resistance areas.

The next daily chart of crude has the Jupiter (blue) and Neptune (grey) Price Lines. These are the two planets that rule crude.

Crude moved above Jupiter / Neptune price lines which are now acting as support.

Watch Monday, mainly for the effect of a change in power in the Saudi regime.
