Financial Astrology - November 12, 2018



Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.

Summary
The SP500 has been very volatile and is entering a period where volatility may increase. The days to watch are in the SP500 section. Venus and Neptune both turning Direct is a signal for a change in trend. I'm looking for a move up before month end.

Gold has just had a sharp move down on Nov 9th. This is the date Venus trine Mars . This trine has a history in moves in Gold. So does Mars sextile Uranus on Nov 15, Nov 16 has both Venus Direct and Mercury Retrograde. Nov 19 has Mars square Jupiter then Neptune Direct on Nov 24th. This looks like Gold will move up before month as well. This would be the result of a number of aspects.

Crude's Primary cycle appears to have shorten a bit. I'm looking for a low in Crude around December 3rd. Also watch Nov 24, Dec 5th

SP500
The last Primary cycle trough started on June 28, 2018 and may have completed it’s Primary cycle trough on Oct. 29, 2018. Please note, this is not definite and we could have a secondary pull back so the Primary cycle trough is not firm yet. Markets should continue to be volatile next week.

If that was the Primary cycle low then we are in the second week of a new Primary.

If the current Primary takes out the Feb 9th, 2018 low at 2,532 we may be looking at a much larger drop. I’m bring this up as a possibility. I think the low is in.

Price is above the 15 day sma and below the 45 day sma . The 15 day average are curling up. We are in a period of volatile congestion.

The recent move down was timing the 18-week Primary cycle and a 2 year cycle. The longer term cycles (2 year) can distort the smaller term cycles (18 week).

September 21 seems to be the crest of the last Primary cycle and may be the high for the 4 year cycle.

The following dates may have significant moves or start a move. The following aspects are for a reverse in trend or large range day. Watch Nov 16 through Nov 19, I’m looking for another  volatile week.

Nov 8              Jupiter enters Sagittarius
                        May involve the start of inflationary periods.
                        FOMC
Nov 15            Mars sextile Uranus as Mars enters Pisces
                        Signal of a move or change in trend
Nov 16            Venus Direct
                        Signal of a move or change in trend
Mercury Retrograde
                        Signal of a move or change in trend
Nov 19            Mars square Jupiter
                        Signal of a move or change in trend

As usual dates are a minimum +- 3 tds. On longer timed aspects a time frame will be included.



The low of the day on Nov 9 was exactly on the 23.6% retracement. Notice we have a number of gaps. They are on the SP500, DJIA and Nasdaq. Gaps tend to be filled meaning the markets would have to move lower at some point to fill the gaps.

The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. This is the basis of what we have been forecasting on.

Following is the 24 Harmonic chart we have shown for many months.



The next hits are Nov 13, 2018 and Jan. 2, 2019. The latter number is on the Uranus price line. Watch closely. We also have the Mars (red) and Jupiter (blue) crossing on Nov 14. Also watch for big moves or wide range days.

Both could be big moves or big range days.

The 9 month cycle



The above chart shows the 9 month or 39 week cycle (blue vertical lines). It was due and appears to have formed in late October. The 20 week cycle was added as well (red vertical lines). Any green lines are a combination of the 20 and 40 week cycles. The 20 week cycle was only 1 day away from the sharp move down.

The next 40 week cycle is early February 2019.

From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.”

See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS.

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan and Hawaii.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines). The 15 year is due now or took place April – June 2018. The 45 year due in Sept 2019. This is another example of a longer-term cycle possibly distorting shorter term cycles. Bear in mind they need a broad orb.



Regarding a note from a reader the 45 year cycle is the ½ cycle to the 90 year cycle. It is the vertical blue lines.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows 2 Envelope channels. Red is the centered 
20 week envelope channel. Blue is the centered 40 week envelope channel. The dark blue squares are the Sun / Neptune square which is often a short term change in trend.

We have had this noted it was due for a sell.  Also note the dark blue squares. They are the dates of the Mars square Uranus transit.



We are entering the difficult time mentioned over the last few months.

The envelope channel charts are easy to calculate. In the above case the blue lines are based on a 40 day average but when they are plotted they are centered. For a 40 day it will be shifted by 20 days which is the ½ cycle.

The red averages are based on the 20 week so they are shifted 10 weeks or a ½ cycle.

I brought up Iran on the last post. I’ll come back to those charts on any potential signs of conflict. It is getting close. Watch the news for problems with Iran.


4 Year
Other longer-term aspects like the 4 year cycle are coming due. The SP500 4 year cycle should be due in mid to late 2019.

The Primary cycle top on Sept 21, 2018 at 2490.91 may have been the top for the 4 year cycle. This is not confirmed.

Other
Another very long term cycle, the 90 year, is potentially around 2022 +- a lot. More time is needed to confirm this cycle. The ½ cycle to the 90, the 45 year ties into the 90 and is due in the same time frame.

Gold

Gold is 59 td (trading days) away from the Primary cycle bottom on Aug 16, 2018. This could be near the end of the 2nd 6 week cycle and possibly close to the 3rd 6, week cycle.

The Primary cycle in Gold has been difficult to ascertain. There was a Primary cycle trough on Dec 12, 2017 but determining the next Primary trough has been very difficult.

We may have seen a low on Aug 16th but it must be confirmed. This was 4 trading days after the Lunar Eclipse on Aug 11.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length.

I’m looking for astrological aspects which have a history of changing the trend for Gold. 

Mars changing signs into Pisces on Nov 15  has a history of moves in Gold. 

So does Venus Direct on Nov 16, Mars sextile Uranus on Nov 15, Mars square Jupiter on Nov 19 and Mercury retrograde on Nov 16 as seen on the following chart.



Seasonally Gold is usually flat over the early summer months with a history of moving up starting in August.




Price is now just below the 15 sma and the 45 day sma. Gold price often pulls back 2 to 4 weeks after a new Primary cycle commences and then continues with a move up. We are currently 59 td along.



The following chart shows two daily envelope channels like the chart for the SP500 above. The blue squares are the aspects duplicate the transits noted above.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last being Nov 6, 2018. The next is Dec 3rd.

The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold had been moving sideways and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the red Mars price line as a positive sign for a move up in Gold which we got on Oct 11. Gold may follow the red, Mars price line up. Watch closely.

Remember the list of aspects that could affect Gold above.

The small blue x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold when Mercury exits heliocentric Sagittarius.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 harmonic. If you count each line from one darker red line to the next you will find there are 15 of them. 15 * 24 degrees = 360 degrees.



The following chart shows when Mars enters a new sign.(red squares). It often affects Gold. Mars is moving into Pisces on Nov 15th.



Crude

Oil appears we have put in Primary low on June 18th. I’m loking at some longer term cycles and technical to get a handle on future direction.

Price is now lower than the June 18, 2018 low of the Primary cycle. This can be very telling for crude. Watch this for a possible bear market starting in crude.

The vertical blue lines shows a 15 month cycle. The red Fibonacci retracement shows crude between the 38.2% and 50% retracement. The move down is often caught in this range.

Crude started up on June 18 when Neptune turned retrograde.

The 38.2% retracement looks like a possible bottom for this move down. Watch crude closely around 57.23.



On the next chart note how price often follows the Sun price line up (green line) and often stops and reverses at the Sun price line or the Pluto price line. We often get big range days.  The red vertical lines are the 40 cd (calendar day) lines. Crude price is currently sitting on a Pluto price line (blue)

Watch the green Sun price line and see if crude follows that price line up.


Lately the crude 15 month cycle has expanded. Following is a weekly chart of crude and a 17 month cycle. As seen this is almost due for a low.

Financial Astrology - November 5, 2018


Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded FXStreet.com.

SP500
The last Primary cycle trough started on June 28, 2018 and may have completed it’s Primary cycle on Oct. 29, 2018. Please note we could have a secondary pull back so the Primary cycle trough is not firm yet. Markets should be volatile next week with the mid-term elections on Nov 6 and the FOMC meeting on Nov 8th.

If that was the Primary cycle low then we are in the first week of a new Primary.

If the current Primary takes out the Feb 9th low at 2532 we may be looking at a much larger drop. I’m bring this up as a possibility. I think the low is in.

Price is below the 15 day sma and the 45 day sma and the 15 day sma is below the 45 day sma. Both averages are pointed down. We are in a period of volatile congestion.

The recent move down was timing the 18-week Primary cycle and a 2 year cycle. The longer term cycles (2 year) can distort the smaller term cycles (18 week).

September 21 seems to be the crest of the current Primary cycle.

The following dates may have significant moves or start a move. When the Primary cycle trough is confirmed the later dates will not apply.

Nov 6              North Node enters Cancer
                       Uranus squares the North Node and enters Aries (backwards, it’s retrograde)
                        Experience of upsets when together with other people.
                        People advocating for reforms
                        Difficulty in unions od people.
                       Sun trine Neptune
                        Often marks a high then down
                        Weakness and illness.
                        Uncertain times, masses of water
                        Mid-term elections in the USA
Nov 7              Jupiter trine the North Node
                        Unexpected good acquaintance, fortunate unions
Nov 8              Jupiter enters Sagittarius
                        May involve the start of inflationary periods.
                        FOMC
Nov 16            Venus Direct
                        Mercury Retrograde

As usual dates are a minimum +- 3 tds. On longer timed aspects a time frame will be included.

Nov 6 are the USA mid-term elections. We should be aware of actions by either political party which could affect the markets.



The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. This is the basis of what we have been forecasting on.

Following is the 24 Harmonic chart we have shown for many months.



The next hits are Nov 13, 2018 and Jan. 2, 2019. The latter number is on the Uranus price line. Watch closely.

Both could be big moves or big range days.

The 9 month cycle



The above chart shows the 9 month or 39 week cycle (blue vertical lines). It was due and appears to have formed in late October. The 20 week cycle was added as well (red vertical lines). Any green lines are a combination of the 20 and 40 week cycles. The 20 week cycle was only 1 day away from the sharp move down.

From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.”

See the link under “Earthquakes”. This is an application from the USGS.

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan and Hawaii.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines). The 15 year is due now or took place April – June 2018. The 45 year due in Sept 2019. This is another example of a longer-term cycle possibly distorting shorter term cycles. Bear in mind they need a broad orb.



Regarding a note from a reader the 45 year cycle is the ½ cycle to the 90 year cycle. It is the vertical blue lines.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows 2 Envelope channels. Red is the centered 
20 week envelope channel. Blue is the centered 40 week envelope channel. The dark blue squares are the Sun / Neptune square which is often a short term change in trend.

We have had this noted it was due for a sell.  Also note the dark blue squares. They are the dates of the Mars square Uranus transit.



We are entering the difficult time mentioned over the last few months.

The envelope channel charts are easy to calculate. In the above case the blue lines are based on a 40 day average but when they are plotted they are centered. For a 40 day it will be shifted by 20 days which is the ½ cycle.

The red averages are based on the 20 week so they are shifted 10 weeks or a ½ cycle.

I brought up Iran on the last post. I’ll come back to those charts on any potential signs of conflict. It is getting close. Watch the news for problems with Iran.

Longer Term
Uranus and the North Node.
Following is a monthly chart of the DJIA.

The red vertical lines are a 94 month cycle.

The main Astros on this chart are the aspects between Uranus and the North Node.

The small red circle is the conjunction.

The double arrow is the opposition.

The red square is the 90 degree square.

Note how the DJIA acted as these aspects are hit.

The next conjunction is in July 2022.

The next square is November 6, 2018. This is the same day as some other Astros above and the day of the mid-term election. 

November 6 may be a significant date.



4 Year
Other longer-term aspects like the 4 year cycle are coming due. The SP500 4 year cycle should be due in mid to late 2019.

The Primary cycle top on Sept 21, 2018 at 2490.91 may have been the top for the 4 year cycle.

Other
Another very long term cycle, the 90 year, is potentially around 2022 +- a lot. More time is needed to confirm this cycle. The ½ cyc;e to the 90, the 45 year ties into the 90 and is due in the same time frame.

Gold

Mercury moved out of Heliocentric Sagittarius on Oct 20th. This often results in sharp moves both up and down. In this case it is close to a short term high before going down.

The Primary cycle in Gold has been difficult to ascertain. There was a Primary cycle trough on Dec 12, 2017 but determining the next Primary trough has been very difficult.

We may have seen a low on Aug 16th but it must be confirmed. This was 4 trading days after the Lunar Eclipse on Aug 11.

We are now 52 td (trading days) from the potential Primary cycle low on Aug 16th. The sharp move up may be the beginning of the second 6 week cycle of the current Primary cycle. The Primary Cycle, which is 18 weeks (approx.) is often composed of 3, 6-week cycles.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length.

I’m looking for astrological aspects which have a history of changing the trend for Gold. Mars changing signs into Aquarius has a history of moves in Gold. So does Pluto Direct and Venus Retrograde / Direct. In addition Mercury into heliocentric Sagittarius has a history of moves in precious metals. Mercury enters helio Sagittarius on Oct 9th. The big move occurred on Oct 11.

Seasonally Gold is usually flat over the early summer months with a history of moving up starting in August.




Price is now just above the 15 sma and above the 45 day sma. Gold price often pulls back 2 to 4 weeks after a new Primary cycle commences and then continues with a move up. We are currently 11 weeks along.



The following chart shows two daily envelope channels like the chart for the SP500 above. The blue squares are the Sun square Neptune which often results in a short term change in trend. We should be getting close to a buy.



The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last being Oct 24, 2018. The next is Nov 20th.The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold had been moving sideways and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the red Mars price line as a positive sign for a move up in Gold which we got on Oct 11. Gold may follow the red, Mars price line up. Watch closely.

The small blue x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold when Mercury exits heliocentric Sagittarius.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 harmonic. If you count each line from one darker red line to the next you will find there are 15 of them. 15 * 24 degrees = 360 degrees.



The following chart shows when Mars enters a new sign.(red squares). It often affects Gold.



Crude

Oil appears we have put in Primary low on June 18th. We are entering the 19th week of the Primary cycle. Crude pulled back from Oct 3. Crude may have difficulty moving up from here.

Price is now lower than the June 18, 2018 low of the Primary cycle. This can be very telling for crude. Watch this for a possible bear market starting in crude.

I’m looking to June 18 being the trough of the Primary Cycle. This was also the date Neptune turned retrograde. Neptune and Jupiter rule crude. August 19 had Jupiter trine Neptune, both co-rule crude. In addition, Mercury changes to direct motion, another sign of change.

Looking at Oct 5th was the 16 and 24 week cycles conjunct. This may have indicated a move down in crude.



Crude started up on June 18 when Neptune turned retrograde.



On the next chart note how price often follows the Sun price line up (green line) and often stops and reverses at the Sun price line or the Pluto price line. We often get big range days.  The red vertical lines are the 40 cd (calendar day) lines.

Watch the green Sun price line and see if crude follows that price line up.

Financial Astrology - Oct 29, 2019


There will not be a post this weekend.

I'm assuming we will continue with volatile congestion.

The dates of Nov 6 to Nov 8 should be telling.

Nov 6 is the mid term elections in the USA.

I will post during next week, time permitting.
