The last Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse.
We are now starting the 9th week and looking for a pullback into the nominal 9.5 week cycle low. This has been an unusual time with the general market indices seemingly unstoppable. Whether it is central bank money or money from some other source we need to know the time periods where a correction will start. We look at cycles and Astro events that have a history of being 65% - 72 % correct. We will continue with this approach.

Note this last Primary cycle low on August 21 was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicates a possible I emphasize possible, change in trend near Oct. 23, Nov. 7,  Nov 24. November 24 is also a Martin Armstrong turn date. Look for surprise events. The rules for reading the Bradley indicator are in Section 9 of the subscribers’ report.

We should stay aware the trends in the major US indices remain up and that is the way they should be played.

Friday October 20, 2017 is the 30 year anniversary of the 1987 crash on October 20, 1987. Looking another 30 years back we have October 22, 1957 where we had a significant low. Another 30 years back and we are at October 21, 1927 and a low.

To see similar market moves look back to the high in the SP500 at October 11, 2007 and the move down March 6, 2009.

This week we have Mars entering Libra on October 22 joining Venus and the Sun there. The Sun won’t continue there very long as it exits Libra on October 23 for Scorpio. Planets changing signs can indicate a change in the market indices, so watch closely. There is another short term cycle due on October 22 as well.

The next significant aspects for the week are the Sun conjunct Jupiter on Oct. 26, Venus squared Pluto on Oct 27th and the Sun quintile Pluto on Oct. 28th.

The next very significant aspect is the Sun trine Neptune on Nov. 3rd, Saturn trine Uranus on 
Nov. 11, 2017.

The very slow moving aspect, Uranus semi-square Neptune is still in orb. It was exact on Oct 7 and reflects the on-going illusion and confusion in the markets and elsewhere.

The following chart of the daily SP500 shows the Venus latitude as a green wavy line. Note I put green vertical lines at the center of each wave up. Also note the market tends to turn down shortly after the mid-point of the Venus latitude.

The square red boxes are an attempt at forecasting which is being tested.

Transiting Saturn square the USA Neptune in the Sagittarius rising chart.
The effect of Saturn square Neptune can be deflationaryWe haven’t seen this yet.With the buildup of credit in the economy 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. This looks like the 5 month cycle came in early and continued up.

The following chart is the 50 week cycle. The pink vertical lines are the 50 week cycle. The red squares show the Sun conjunct the North Node. The blue squares are Saturn turning direct. Both signatures have a history with the 50 week cycle. If this is the 50 week it is very shallow.

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 Nov 1st. then Nov. 17th.

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 has broken through. It should act as strong support when the market turns down.

In summary with the aspects in front of us I’m looking for a surprise event to turn the markets. This may not happen until late November. 


Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th. July 10th was the last Primary cycle low and we are now 15 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. The Primary cycle has an average length of 18 weeks but has a range from 15 to 22 weeks.

The 15 day sma is below the 45 day sma and price is below both. This appears to be moving down into the Primary cycle low.

Coming up on Oct 22 we have heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius. It will be there until Nov. 2nd when heliocentric Mercury moves into Capricorn. This usually marks a period that is volatile for precious metals. It can go up or down. Down into this period may be the Primary cycle low then we would be up.

Note on the Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold had stopped moving down around 23.16% fibonacci retracement and then moved down again last week.

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 The 61.8% Fibonacci retracement around 1281 may offer some support but I’m looking for a short move down then up after the Primary cycle low.

The 4th quarter of 2017 may still see a rising Gold price.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on October 2nd. and the next October 30th.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. It has been acting as support for the past few weeks. I’m looking to move down through the Mars price line, then the Primary low than up.

Mars will also be entering Libra, a Cardinal Air sign. There may be more interest in an increases im diplomacy


We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the last Primary cycle.  The move out of that date was the start of a Primary cycle. We are entering the 18h week.and should be watching for the Primary cycle low. It is possible October 6 was that low but too close to call yet.

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. Crude moved down sharply on Friday October 6th. Crude should be a buy around 46.00. Crude may find support at that blue line sp watch closely next week.

Crude has now hit the Fib retracement at 23.6%. Like Gold we may head down here and watch to see if the average longitude acts as support.

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 red Fibonacci retracement lines and the blue planetary averages.

Also watch the 15 and 45 day sma. The 15 day appears to be rolling over perhaps both preparing for a trip down to their Primary cycle troughs.

On the following daily chart of crude note the green lines sloping up. This is the price line for the Sun/Earth. The blue lines moving horizontal is the Pluto priceline.

Note how price often follows the Sun price line up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto price line.
