The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse. The energy of the eclipse of this ellipse is still being felt. First from Harvey, Irma and then an 8.1 then a 7.1 earthquake in Mexico. That evening Mercury, now moving direct, passed over the point of the Total Solar Eclipse on Sept 7th.
As mentioned before this eclipse was also on the fixed star of Regulus. You can find all the fixed stars in longitude on the blog under “Fixed Stars”.
We are now 5 weeks along and looking for a pullback into the 6 week cycle low. Note this last Primary cycle low was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma but very shallow.
The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicated a change in trend on September 8. The next potential Bradley turn dates are Sept 25 and Oct 6th. Look for surprise events.
The Libran Ingress chart is powerful over the city of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. For the Ingres chart war like Mars is on the Ascendant.
What’s coming up are two more powerful aspects.
Jupiter in opposition to Uranus on September 28. This needs a fairly wide orb and we are, in effect, in the time window for this powerful opposition now. This aspect has a history of occurring close to crests and troughs in the Primary cycle. In this case I would be looking for a crest to turn down. In a society in crisis it can cause highly volatile situations to erupt without warning. There may be an atmosphere of acute tension. On the positive side this aspect seems good for the free-market economy. It is a Capitalistic aspect. Watch out for surprise events close by.
On the same day Pluto turns Direct from Retrograde. Pluto rules taxes and reforms, major change , breakdown and regeneration. Aspects of life that are hidden from view. Political undergrounds, organized crime and Intelligence agencies. Pluto also relates to the banking system, stocks and manipulation and corruption..
Secondly we have Mars in opposition to Neptune on September 24.
Where Neptune is illusion, delusion, confusion and deception. Neptune is also in Pisces, the sign that it rules.
Opposing Mars in Virgo shows conflict. With Neptune this could mean conflict at sea or possibly rockets flying over water. We’ve seen a lot of water over the last 2 months.
Mars opposing Neptune would be a potential sign of poisons used in conflicts.
There is also a third aspect on October 7th, Uranus semi-square Neptune. This is the 172 year cycle. I don’t usually cover semi-squares but this aspect is between two long orbit planets. These two planets have been close to a semi-square for a number of months.
I had also mentioned that this timeframe may affect Israel and possibly other countries. North Korea is still active and may be for some time. Watch October 7 - 11 for actions that may have longer term consequences.
The meaning of the Jupiter / Uranus opposition is in the subscribers report. For our purposes here this can be a surprise event. That day, Sept 28 also has Pluto turning Direct, a signature for powerful reversals in the US markets.
From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Uranus / Neptune
Suddenly incapacitated, unconsciousness, Checkmated, Crisis, Revolution, Dead Persons.
In addition to the above there is a potent transit between transiting Saturn square the USA natal Neptune. Hard aspects to the USA's Neptune and Mars often coincide with financial disruption. Saturn will square the USA Neptune and oppose it's natal Mars 3 times in 2017. January, July and October 3rd.
The effect of Saturn square Neptune is deflationary. With the buildup of credit in the economy the above aspects could bring on defaults, cash shortages putting stress on the credit markets. Saturn / Uranus is coming up in November.
From a Mundane Astrology perspective, it covers socialism, and left wing political ideas. It is associated with mobs, secret plots, fraud, swindling, bogus companies, loss and liquidation. This same aspect was near exact during the election period
From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Saturn / Neptune
Habit, things of long duration, sickness, chronic conditions.
The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The 5 month cycle was September 4. The 5-month cycle often is at the start of a slide down but not sliding yet.
The Pluto Direct signature on Sept 28 has a history of occurring close to 50 week cycles.
I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 24 degrees on the following daily chart. The blue vertical lines are 24 cd’s (calendar days).
The next hits are Sept 29 then Oct 16.
I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue
These price lines can act as support / resistance. It has been at highs and lows. Note also when they cross often gets a reaction in price on a short-term basis. Also note, near the top of the chart is a light blue line. This is the Neptune PriceLine. Note how it has been strong resistance to price but just broke through.
In summary with the aspects in front of us I’m looking for a surprise event to turn the markets within the next two weeks. Markets should be volatile with a potential surprise event this week.
Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th. July 10th was the Primary cycle low and we are 11 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. Sept 8th was the nominal 9 ½ week crest. We now wait for a further pullback or reversal up. A key timeframe will be around Sept 28th. This is the Jupiter / Uranus opposition and also Pluto turning Direct. The latter has a history of turns in Gold.
Also note I have been reviewing a math approach to forecasting the markes, to be used in conjunction with the Astrological indicators and events. At this point this other approach forecasts a low in Gold for September 26 +- 1 td (trading days). This may take some time.
Note on the first Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. At this time Gold has stopped at the 23.16% fibonacci retracement.
I’m looking for Gold to put in a trough and then move up in 1 to 2 weeks.
The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.
The following chart shows the 39 td cycle. It is the blue vertical line.
I was looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year but this may be delayed.
The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on September 5th. and the next October 2nd.
The red lines headed up are the Mars pricelines. Watch the Mars Price Line to see if it acts as support / resistance. Note price closed below the Mars price line on Sept 8th.
Oct 15, 16 and two other dates to watch for a turn in Gold.
We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the Primary cycle. The move out of that date looks like the start of a Primary cycle. We are 13 weeks along.
The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See again on Sept 14. Watch price to see if Gold breaks down through the blue (average longitude)
The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.
If we break down, any move close to 46.00 should be a buy.
There were a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st. Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of Crude and NatGas. Watch the period around September 28 where Jupiter aspects both Neptune and Uranus. Venus opposes Neptune in the same time frame.
September 24 could mark a turn in crude where we Mars opposing Neptune. In fact the next two weeks will have multiple aspects to Neptune and Uranus. It may be volatile.
On the following daily chart of crude note the green lines sloping up. This is the price line for the Sun. The blue lines moving horizontal is the Pluto priceline.
Note how price often follows the Sun priceline up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto priceline. I suspect we will break down through the Pluto priceline.
