On a mundane level next week should continue with more violence, uprisings or accidents (like explosions). Saturn and Mars continue front and center. There may be an underlying theme of fear as well.
On April 28 the Sun opposes Saturn and Mars transits over the point of the April 25 partial Lunar eclipse. We are still in the time band for the Lunar eclipse. The primary cycle (nominal 18 week) is either 9 or 24 weeks along. If this is the 24th week of an older primary cycle, which I think it is, it is late and the above two signatures have a history of occurring at the crest or trough of primary cycles.
In addition on April 29 Jupiter is quincunx the North Node and Venus is opposing the North Node. On April 29 Venus transits over the May 9th point of the Solar eclipse and May 1 Mars oppose Saturn while the Sun is in waxing trine to Pluto. All of these point to a turn, and the end of the current primary cycle within a range of a few days.
Without the interference from the FED I would be fairly confident in forecasting a downturn into the trough of the primary cycle. With the FED pumping out 80 billion a month it makes forecasting more difficult. Nevertheless forecasting is what we do. I’m looking for a reversal by May 6 or May 9, the Solar eclipse. We may have to wait for an event, possibly outside the country, either the mid-east or Europe make good candidates.
From a previous post, the Uranus Pluto square on May 20 is on the Natal Sun of France. The next round of sovereign debt problems may come from France. Watch the time period around May 20 for European financial trouble. This is a long term transit and is therefore in effect now. This could also manifest as social unrest, uprisings or geophysical events.
I'll mention this a little early. The period from May 20 through June 18 may be very volatile or some unusual event will take place. More on this in a future post.
Keep in mid as well the last 4 year cycle trough was March 6, 2009. We are overdue for the crest of the 4 year cycle unless of course, April 11, 2013 was the top. Keep watching this one.
Gold could have more downward pressure. Crude is 7 weeks into a primary cycle and should be a buy on any pullback of 3-4%
