Financial Astrology - October 15, 2018


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

We have finally seen the move down we were waiting for.

Following are the dates from a post 2 weeks ago.

Sept 30           Pluto Direct (often reversals in US markets)
Oct 2               Mercury square Pluto enhancing the Pluto Direct aspect.
Oct 3               Mars Parallel Pluto also enhancing the Pluto Direct aspect.
Oct 5               Venus Retrograde and
                        Venus parallel Mars
Oct 10             Venus squared Mars
Oct 10             Hades  Retrograde ( may involve Canada over a period of time, difficulties
Oct 11             Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius (often a move in Gold)

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

On Sept 30 Pluto turned Direct. Before Pluto turns Direct it will trine the Sun approx.19 days before the Direct date. In this case on Sept 11.

After Pluto turns Direct the Sun will square Pluto approx. 12 days after the Pluto Direct date. In this case on Oct 12th which is 1 day off the largest part of the move down.

The move down is going into the Primary Cycle (18 week) low and may also be a 2 year cycle low, identified by someone else.

SP500
The last Primary cycle trough was June 28, 2018. We are now about to enter the 16th week of the current Primary Cycle. The 18th week of the Primary cycle is the week of October 29. The range is +- 3 weeks or 15 to 21 weeks.

Price is below the 15 day sma and the 45 day sma and the 15 day sma is above the 45 day sma. Both averages are curled over. Today Oct 12 the SP500 is bouncing up. This may continue Monday but we are still in the range where there may be a further move down. I would like to see the 15 day sma move lower then the 45 day sma. Bear in mind the start of a bear market is possible.
The following dates may have significant moves or start a move.

Nov 6               North Node enters Cancer
Nov 6               Uranus squares the North Node and enters Aries (backwards, it’s retrograde)
Nov 6               Sun trine Neptune

Nov 7               Jupiter trine the North Node

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 shows the SP500 was above the January 2018 highs and now below.



The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. Look at the area in the red circle. 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.

Also hitting at this time is a 162 week cycle which is close to 3 years. For you Tesla fans
162 = ( 3 * 6  * 9 ). This hit a couple of weeks early.



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 January. 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 volcanoes.”

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.

Gold

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 don’t want to see Gold below 1168.

We are now 38 td (trading days) from the potential Primary cycle 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. 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 above the 15 sma and the 45 day sma. Gold price often pullsback 2 to 4 weeks after a new Primary cycle commences and then continues with a move up. We are currently 7 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 Sept 17, 2018. The next is Oct 15th.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 x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold.

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 would be entering the 16th week of the Primary cycle. Crude pulled back from Oct 3. Crude may have difficulty moving up from here.

With price action dropping watch the Fibonacci retracement levels from 61.8 and lower.

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 and often stops and reverses at 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 - October 8, 2018


Please use the previous blog post of October 1.

The analysis there still applies. Any mention of a week number should be increased by 1.

To give one new longer term chart I will include the 45 year cycle. These are the blue vertical lines. The next 45 years cycle is due September 2019.

This needs a broad orb. Notice how previous incidents marked sharp moves both up and down.


UPDATE Oct 10
The S&P is going down into the Primary cycle (18 week) trough. The 15 and 45 day sma are rolling over with price below both. I am unsure on Gold here.

Financial Astrology - October 1, 2018


This has been a difficult time forecasting the markets. The first week in October has a number of potential market movers if we don’t get a move next week.

Realizing we had a bad call I’m still looking for a dip in the USA indices. Coming up we have.:

Sept 30           Pluto Direct (often reversals in US markets)
Oct 2               Mercury square Pluto enhancing the Pluto Direct aspect.
Oct 3               Mars Parallel Pluto also enhancing the Pluto Direct aspect.
Oct 5               Venus Retrograde and
                        Venus parallel Mars
Oct 10             Venus squared Mars
Oct 10             Hades  Retrograde ( may involve Canada over a period of time, difficulties
Oct 11             Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius (often a move in precious metals)

If we do not get a move before these dates we should get a move during the above time period.
As usual dates are a minimum +- 3 tds. On longer timed aspects a time frame will be included.

SP500

The last Primary cycle trough was June 28, 2018. We are now about to enter the 14th week of the new Primary and in the 2nd 6 week cycle which is 6 weeks along and ready for the crest of the 2nd 6 week cycle in the Primary cycle. The 18th week of the Primary cycle is the week of October 29 but it should be understood the crest of the Primary may be in October or November as the Primary is +- 3 weeks

Price is on the 15 day sma and above the 45 day sma and the 15 day sma is above the 45 day sma.

The following daily chart shows the SP500 is above the January 2018 highs.



The following daily chart of the SP500 is what we have been showing under the 24 Harmonic chart. Look at the area in the red circle. 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.

Also hitting at this time is a 162 week cycle which is close to 3 years. For you Tesla fans
162 = ( 3 * 6  * 9 ).



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 January. 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 is now due, just remember this is a strong up move but we are starting to see some Astros with a strong history for a move in US stocks.


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

Following are the significant earthquakes (> 6.0) so far in January 2018.
Jan 23             Alaska                         7.9
Jan 10             Honduras                    7.5
Jan 14             Peru                            7.1
Jan 19             Mexico                        6.3
Jan 21             Chile                            6.3
Jan 25             Russia                         6.2

Feb 16             Mexico                        7.2
Feb 25             Papua New Guinea    7.5

Apr 10             Chile                            6.2
Apr 19             Prince Edward Island 6.0

May 5              Tajikistan                     6.2
May 5              Papua New Guinea    6.0
There’s more

See the blog post 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.



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.

As mentioned a few weeks ago following is a chart of Canadian confederation along with the current planetary placements. On the following chart the inner wheel is the Canadian confederation and the outer wheel the current aspects.



Note in the inner wheel, Uranus was conjunct the confederation Sun. Uranus stands for political tension, free enterprise, social divisions resulting in a conflict of interest.

The Sun in a confederation chart stands for the Prime Minister, magistrates and persons of authority of distinction. This may explain the bizarre behavior of the current Prime Minister.

The fourth House stands for the land, homes and other buildings. It also stands for the weather, agriculture, mining and the political party that is out of power. In this case the Conservative party.

Also note the outer ring has transiting Hades, a Uranian Planet almost conjunct the Sun / Uranus conjunction. It was exact on Sept 21.

Hades is the symbol for the unattractive side of life. It is unprincipled and causes damage and pain. Hades moves very slowly. The last time it was in this position was 1662.

As Hades approached Uranus Maxine Bernier of the Conservative Party came out, declaring a new political party. This combination of planets point to difficult times for Canada for a number of years going forward.

One other Mundane Chart – Iran
The outer ring is new regime chart from 1979.This has a sharp Solar directed transit. That is Uranus on the Saturn / Pluto mid-point. This may take some time to develop but there is a danger of violence with this aspect.

Transists



Solar Directed



The chart of Iran shows the formation in the inner wheel and the current transits in the outer wheel. Note that transiting Mars is conjunct the natal Mars. This is in the fourth house and again may indicate violence possibly in the homeland.

Gold

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 don’t want to see Gold below 1168.

On occasion the Primary cycle can extend away from it’s more normal 18 week length. This looks like one of them. 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. This will be Sept 10. So does Pluto Direct and Venus Retrograde which are coming up. In addition Mercury into heliocentric Sagittarius has a history of moves in precious metals.

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




Price is below both the 15 sma and the 45 day sma.,. Gold price often pullsback 2 to 4 weeks after a new Primary cycle commences and then continues with a move up. We are currently 4 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 Sept 17, 2018. 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.

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

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).



Crude

Oil appears we have put in Primary low on June 18th. We would be entering the 14th week of a new Primary cycle. With price action close pulling away from the 15 day sma and 45 day sma’s.  Our Head and Shoulder Top formation may be blowing up as I write this. Sharp move up on Friday.

I’m leaning 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 ahead Jan 5th has the 16 and 24 week cycles conjunct. This may indicate a move 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 and often stops and reverses at the Pluto price line. We often get big range days.

Price ended today right on the Sun Price Line. This in itself can cause a reversal. Watch Monday.
