Financial Astrology - Sept, 28, 2014


First of all let me thank the many subscribers who emailed in congratulating the call for Sept. 25th. It's not often we get such a big move on the exact date forecast but this was fairly obvious. A number of subscribers paid for their subscription many times over. If you missed out on the Sept 25th date, don't worry. There will be many more. One possibly very soon.

From last weeks subscriber  market letter:
"In addition on Sept 25 the Moon passes over the point, where the Sun will be during the Oct 8th Lunar Eclipse. The Moon will also be opposing Uranus on Sept 25th. Putting this together there appears to be some surprise and may have something to do with the US$ or some other currencies. I'm looking at this as an event or a secret comes out that effects the US$ or other currencies. This may be just the start. This period around Sept 25th should turn out to be significant."

Trading Note: It's difficult to short the market when you expect a pullback after a long bullish period. You could short the index via an ETF or buy puts. In instances like this I put in resting buy orders on 2 times reverse ETF's and then let the market take me in if it goes down.

SP500
We are entering the 8th week of the Primary cycle  1  (nominal 18 week) which started on Aug 7th. There are potentially a number of longer term cycles due in the next couple of months. September has a number of intermediate cycles due. We have just put in the first Major cycle (nominal 6 week) of the Primary  1 cycle with the low which I have changed to Sept 25th. This was also the 224 cd cycle trough.

From last weeks blog post:
"So normally the SP500 should be back in bullish mode as it starts it's 2nd Major cycle of the Primary cycle.

I said normally because we have a number of Astrological events that have a history of occurring around trend changes. These start next week and carry on through to Oct 23, the partial Solar eclipse."

Following is a daily chart of the SP500 with the nominal 6 week trough and shows the area for the potential low for this 18 week cycle.



The 224 cd (calendar day) cycle troughed out with the nominal 6 week low on Sept 25.



The 168 td (trading day) cycle turned down on the high just like previous highs.



The next couple of weeks should continue the volatile swings.  This coming week of September 29 starts a little quieter on the Astro front, but does have Mars moving "Out of Bounds" by declination. There are two major Astrological events coming up. Their force should start to be felt this week.

First, the Jupiter, Uranus trine will be joined by Mars making it a grand trine in fire signs. This will be most exact during the week of Oct. 5th. This has the potential of being quite positive and innovative with a possible break through in one of the sciences. We may find people to be more bold, challenging and outspoken, including ourselves. Watch for this in your personal lives. Remember I said has the potential.

Metaphysical Interlude:
A brief note on trines or 3rd harmonic aspects vs hard aspects (squares, oppositions etc.) or 8th harmonic aspects. With trines, the energy is smooth flowing between the planets involved. Everything is running smooth so there's no need for action. With the hard aspects the energy is not smooth flowing, it is disruptive and prods people to action. The point is trines feel so "nice" people sit back and enjoy the feelings of the trine and nothing gets accomplished. Squares and other 8th harmonic aspects prod people / groups to get up and do something. Action takes place as the result. This can also equate to manifestation in the physical world while trines, many times, do not manifest in the physical world and result in positive feelings only. Put down the phone, turn off the TV, get off the couch and do something. The grand trine will then be of help to you. Enough of our metaphysical rant and on with the forecast.

This grand trine includes Mars so I expect some action. The fact all 3 planets are in fire signs should be creative. Mars in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Leo. There is certainly an element of luck in this grand trine. With all the problems in the world it would be most beneficial to use this grand trine's energy to tackle some of the most pressing difficulties. It does seem to address freedom.

On the other side of the coin we have the Sun then Venus translating the Uranus / Pluto waxing square. In fact the Lunar eclipse of Oct 8th forms a T-square with the forming Uranus / Pluto waxing square creating a T-square with Pluto as the focal planet. The focal planet will express the energy of the T-square. Pluto is in Capricorn and still very close to the heliocentric Jupiter nodes, a power point in the Zodiac. Pluto is all about debt, deficits and taxes. If we include Kronos (a Uranian point) we have a grand square. This would appear to be quite negative. Could debt or defaults be affecting Uranus freedoms?

The subscribers will have all the exact dates. For our purposes here the period around
Oct 8th should be very important. If a sovereign debt issue comes up, these aspects could be pointing in that direction, it's obviously going to have a very negative affect on the markets.

On Sept 25th the Moon was on the spot where the Sun will be during the lunar eclipse, opposite Uranus. It invoked fear in the markets and a sharp down move. We may get a repeat performance close to the Lunar eclipse date. The issue of freedom I originally saw may turn out to be the curtailment of freedom due to debt / default issues. Following is some history of eclipses on a daily chart of the SP500. Lunar eclipses ( blue circle) Solar eclipses (red circles). More details on eclipses are in the subscribers letter.



Mars will be in Sagittarius until October 26th. Expect volatility in many markets.

The Pluto and Uranus waxing square will be coming back into focus over the coming weeks.  It will be an exact waxing square on Dec 15. This will be the 6th exact square in this series of 7 exact squares. The last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The period around both these dates, Dec 15, 2014 and March 16, 2015 could be troublesome on the world stage and the financial markets in particular.

I view this aspect as the aspect which has given rise to many of the world's difficult events over the past couple of years particularly debt, secretive financial manipulation, taxes etc.  This is a very long term aspects and I give it +- 1 month in orb. It is an aspect that colors the background of history for a number of years. We have covered the Uranus Pluto in waxing square extensively in previous posts. We will do so again as we get closer.

In summary I am looking for market volatility for 5 to 6 weeks. There are a number of significant aspects occurring over the next 2 weeks. Although this coming week markets may start slowly, critical aspects start Oct 4 through to Oct 11 with Oct 8th, the Lunar eclipse potentially being the trigger to set off a market event. This Lunar eclipse should be given a few days either side but the T-square formation mentioned above may be the catalyst to set things off. With Pluto as the focal point of a T-square we could be looking at a sovereign debt default or other debt problem. I've mentioned the US$ for the last couple of weeks. Keep watching currencies and the US$. There could be a quick move in the Oct 8th time frame +- a few .

Gold
Gold is in the 17th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1  (nominal 18 week). After a couple of weeks of free fall, Gold at least went sideways last week. We may be close to an 18 week low. I'm watching for a break above the 1239 area. That's the 23.6% retracement of the move down from July 10th to Sept 25th. There's that date again. It's quite possible Sept 25th was the trough of the Primary cycle. It's in the range of the Pluto direct aspect on Sept 22nd.



Two other charts pointing to a potential reversal in Gold follow. Be advised, if Gold does reverse here it could be entering a left translated cycle. That could mean after a brief bullish rise it may turn bearish early. Keep this in mind.

The following weekly chart shows the heliocentric Jupiter price line. It has acted as support for Gold in the past as seen on the following chart.



There is another shorter term aspect which is the 7th harmonic aspect between the Sun and Jupiter. The following daily chart shows some history. It has marked short term trend changes. The next exact date is Sept. 30th.



I've been working on the premise that June 28, 2013 was the 4.5 year cycle low in Gold and Dec 31, 2013 was a retest. If Gold goes below 1180 we may be seeing the 4.5 year low unfolding now.

Silver is in the 18th week of it's Primary cycle cycle  1 . Like Gold we are lower in price than at the start of the Primary cycle on May 30, 2014. The Primary cycle is also left translated, which is bearish. Watch this week.

Silver was below the 200 level in the CCI (Commodity channel index), a level from which Silver often makes a move higher within a couple of weeks. It was sitting on the 1.236 Fib level for the move up from May 30, 2014 to July 11, 2014 on Sept 19th. Watch this level which is at 17.86 on the following daily chart. Were late in the 18th week cycle.



Crude
Nobody sounds the trumpet when cycles end. Crude may have put in it's Primary cycle cycle 1  trough on Sept 22nd. We would therefore be in the 1st week of a new Primary cycle or the 22nd week of an older cycle. I suspect we are in a new Primary which should be bullish. I bought a bullish crude ETF on Friday.

If this is a new cycle we must bear in mind it could be left translated and therefore we would get the top early in the cycle. Many commodities have been going through a deflationary period at least partly attributable to the high US$. I'm referring to WTIC crude.



On a longer term basis, Crude could drop to the 85.00/CL area in the 4th quarter of 2014

Gold Update - Sept 22, 2014

Watch Gold closely for the next few days. It may bounce up off the heliocentric Jupiter price line (blue lines)

As can be seen on the following weekly chart for Gold it has done so before.

The heliocentric Jupiter price line is in the 1206 area.

Financial Astrology - Sept 21, 2014


SP500
We are entering the 7th week of the Primary cycle  1 (nominal 18 week) which started on Aug 7th. There are potentially a number of longer term cycles due in the next couple of months. September has a number of intermediate cycles due. We have just put in the first Major cycle Primary cycle with the low on Sept 15th.

I thought the above mentioned low would be deeper due to the  224 cd (calendar day) cycle being due as well. I was expecting to get down to the 1,970 area in the SP500 which was the 38.2% retracement level.



From the blog post 2 weeks ago.
" I've noted on the chart when we could expect the Major cycle to trough out, that is the weeks of  9/15/2014 to 9/26/2014."

224 cd (calendar day) cycle


So normally the SP500 should be back in bullish mode as it starts it's 2nd Major cycle of the Primary cycle.

I said normally because we have a number of Astrological events that have a history of occurring around trend changes. These start next week and carry on through to Oct 23, the partial Solar eclipse.

Subscribers have the dates, specific Astrological details and historical charts showing the history of the coming main Astrological events. These were in last weeks weekly letter.

Also note I've added the Lunar (blue squares) and Solar Eclipses (red squares) to the SP500 chart. These need a range of +- a few days and their effects can be much longer, particularly the Solar eclipse. In this case the Lunar eclipse is tied into a Sept 25th aspect. The Lunar Eclipse is on October 8th and the Solar Eclipse October 23rd. More on this in the subscribers letter.



From last weeks blog post:
"The astrological aspect of significance this week is Venus in waning trine to Pluto on Sept 14th. It has a history of coinciding with Major cycles within 5 trading days and maybe marking the trough of the current Major cycle."

Note the Major cycle low was on Sept 15th.

Also from last weeks blog post:
"Mars entering Sagittarius on September 13th can result in wild price swings, particularly the week of Sept 22nd where we have other significant aspects. Martian energy (fight or flight) heats up Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign, starting September 13."

Mars will be in Sagittarius until October 26th. Expect volatility in many markets.

Of immediate importance is Mars will be in waning square to Neptune soon after entering Sagittarius on Sept 21. This is a signature of exaggeration and false rumors that may be designed to incite hysteria. Remember Neptune is illusion and delusion. False flag events come to mind.

The Pluto and Uranus waxing square will be coming back into focus over the coming weeks.  It will be exact on Dec 15. This will be the 6th exact square in this series of 7 exact squares. The last square in this series is March 16, 2015. The period around both these dates, Dec 15, 2014 and March 16, 2015 could be troublesome on the world stage and the financial markets in particular.

I view this aspect as the aspect which has given rise to many of the world's difficult events over the past couple of years.  This is a very long term aspects and I give it +- 1 month in orb. It is an aspect that colors the background history for a number of years. We have covered the Uranus Pluto in waxing square extensively in previous posts. We will do so again as we get closer.

The month of September has two very powerful aspects. I'm going to mention one here as it demonstrates an Astrological principle. That is, all aspects between two planets are part of a cycle. The cycles always starts with a conjunction, then the faster moving planet starts to separate from the slower moving planet and start making other aspects.

Late in the month there is Jupiter in waxing trine to Uranus. A trine is a 120 degree aspect. The waxing trine is the first trine of a new cycle. There are three trines
(ex. 360 / 3 = 120). There is a waxing trine aspect at 120 degrees and a waning trine aspect at 240 degrees.

Following is a monthly chart showing the history of the Jupiter Uranus in waxing trine.



On this monthly chart of the SP500 the red circles are the dates of the Jupiter Uranus trine. Note, sometimes there are 3 aspects close together. This occurs when the planets involved are going retrograde. The one coming up is a 3 pass. I'm including a shorter term chart for subscribers since the monthly chart hides shorter term activity and Jupiter Uranus contacts are very strong.

The Jupiter in waxing trine to Uranus aspect which is exact on Sept 25th will be joined by Mars in early October making this a grand trine. All planets will be in fire sign, Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo, and Uranus in Aries. That's a lot of fire energy. If we don't blow the world up with awesome fire power this could represent a startling breakthrough in some field of activity. Freedom will be emphasized. People (including leaders) should think and then think again before they rush into a decision.

Following is one of the weekly charts given to subscribers. It shows the last time this aspect (waxing trine) and a three pass occurred. It was October 1987.



Following is a chart of what I believe is the main catalyst for the huge rise in the general markets. It's the FED QE 1,2,3 and low interest rates.



In summary I am looking for market volatility for 5 to 6 weeks. There are a number of aspects occurring over the coming week which may indicate a period of sharp ups and downs. This may result in a broad market correction, not necessarily a crash. Watch the US$ and other currencies closely.

Gold
Gold is in the 16th week of it's Primary cycle (nominal 18 week). Note, the range of the Primary cycle for Gold is 15-21 weeks. Gold broke through the bottom of the symmetrical triangle (light blue) and has continued down in a free fall.

There are many rumors of Gold manipulation conducted by the US and EU. At the same time China and Russia are accumulating Gold in large quantities. There are also rumors the US does not have the Gold they claim.

Leaving aside rumors there are 2 Astrological events coming up with a record of a change in trend for Gold. The first one is Pluto turning direct on Monday. This has a record of a change in trend in Gold which typically takes hold within 6 td's after the exact date. There is a second Astrological event in the week of Sept 29th.



At the present time it appears many commodities are in a deflationary period. See crude further down.

I've been working on the premise that June 28, 2013 was the 4.5 year cycle low in Gold and Dec 31, 2013 was a retest. If Gold goes below 1180 we may be seeing the 4.5 year low unfolding now. Shanghai will be opening a Gold exchange I believe this will be Sept 26th but I do not have the details.

This being the 16th week in Gold with a max of 21 weeks means we should have a Gold cycle trough on or before the last week in October at the latest. Remember next week.

Silver is in the 17th week of it's Primary cycle. Like Gold we are lower in price than at the start of the Primary cycle on May 30, 2014. The Primary cycle is also left translated, which is bearish. Watch this week. There's not much positive I could say about Silver here but let's try.

Silver is below the 200 level in the CCI (Commodity channel index), a level from which Silver often makes a move higher within a couple of weeks. It is also sitting on the 1.236 Fib level for the move up from May 30, 2014 to July 11, 2014.



Crude
We are in the 21st week of the Primary cycle in crude or just starting a new Primary cycle. The Primary cycle in crude is 18-19 weeks with a range of 15-23 weeks. We should be getting close to a trough. If a new Primary cycle appears it will be bullish for the next few weeks. If not a Primary it could go down further. Like Gold, Silver and commodities in general, Crude seems to be in a deflationary period at least partly attributable to the high US$. I'm referring to WTIC crude. The current cycle was  very left translated which is bearish.



On a longer term basis, Crude could drop to the 85.00/CL area in the 4th quarter of 2014

It should be noted there is a 38-39 month cycle in crude, many commodities and the US$. The longer term cycles need a wider orb. This cycle could trough out from now to early November. It could also be this week. The following weekly chart shows the 38/39 month cycle in crude.

Financial Astrology - Sept 14, 2014


SP500
We are entering the 6th week of the Primary cycle (nominal 18 week) which started on Aug 7th. There are potentially a number of longer term cycles due in the next couple of months. September has a number of intermediate cycles due. First up is the first Major cycle of the Primary cycle.

We are in the first Major cycle (nominal 6 week average range of 5-7 weeks). We may also be in the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle as well. I was expecting to get down to at least the 1,970 area in the SP500 which is the 38.2% retracement level.

From last weeks blog post.
" I've noted on the chart when we could expect the Major cycle to trough out, that is the weeks of  9/15/2014 to 9/26/2014."

SP500

Also from last weeks blog post.
" A pullback to the Major cycle trough is often near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement or the 1970 area."

Also note I've added the Lunar (blue squares) and Solar Eclipses (red squares) to the SP500 chart. These need a range of +- a few days and their effects can be much longer, particularly the Solar eclipse. In this case the Lunar eclipse is tied into a Sept 25th aspect. It is also tied in to the long term Uranus waxing square Pluto aspect, in effect making it a T-square with a wide orb. More on this for subscribers. The Lunar Eclipse is on October 8th and the Solar Eclipse October 23rd. More on this in the subscribers letter.



This coming week has the FED meeting on Sept 16, 17 and the Scotland Referendum on Sept 18th. Both are possible market moving events. The astrological aspect of significance this week is Venus in waning trine to Pluto on Sept 14th. It has a history of coinciding with Major cycles within 5 trading days and maybe marking the trough of the current Major cycle (see this first chart). Note, I said maybe as we are in the time frame for the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle mentioned last few weeks on this blog. Following is a daily chart of the SP500 showing the 224 cd cycle. I was expecting this cycle to go a little deeper. Watch this week as we may get the Major cycle and 224cd cycle lows. Much depends on the FED and Scotland Referendum. We also have OPEX on Sept 19th.



The following week of Sept 22nd looks very eventful from an Astrological perspective. I believe we are entering an exciting, eventful time period starting now through the end of October.  Mars entering Sagittarius on September 13th can result in wild price swings, particularly the week of Sept 22nd where we have other significant aspects. Martian energy (fight or flight) heats up Sagittarius, a mutable fire sign, starting September 13.

Sagittarius is about ideology, philosophy and cultural identity. Issues of nationalism and patriotism are highlighted. Peoples beliefs come to the fore be it religious, intellectual or cultural. Sagittarius tests the tolerance, understanding and acceptance towards other cultures practices, customs and beliefs. This sign also rules travel and immigration often occurs when the sign is transited.

Of immediate importance is Mars will be in waning square to Neptune soon after entering Sagittarius on Sept 21. This is a signature of exaggeration and false rumors that may be designed to incite hysteria. Remember Neptune is illusion and delusion. False flag events come to mind.

The hard war aspects between Mars and Saturn in Scorpio have just passed but I would expect the fog of war to continue for some time. The Mars Saturn aspects in August will be replaced by a building stress between Pluto and Uranus that are in exact waxing square on Dec 15. This is a very long term aspects and I give it +- 1 month in orb. It is an aspect that colors the background of history for a number of years. We have covered the Uranus Pluto in waxing square extensively in previous posts. We will do so again as we get closer.

The month of September has two very powerful aspects. I'm going to mention one here as it demonstrates an Astrological principle. That is, all aspects between two planets are part of a cycle. The cycles always starts with a conjunction, then the faster moving planet starts to separate from the slower moving planet and start making other aspects.

Late in the month there is Jupiter in waxing trine to Uranus. A trine is a 120 degree aspect. The waxing trine is the first trine of a new cycle. There are three trines
(ex. 360 / 3 = 120). There is a waxing trine aspect at 120 degrees and a waning trine aspect at 240 degrees.

Following is a monthly chart showing the history of the Jupiter Uranus trine.



On this monthly chart of the SP500 the red circles are the dates of the Jupiter Uranus trine. Note, sometimes there are 3 aspects close together. This occurs when the planets involved are going retrograde. The one coming up is a 3 pass. I'm including a shorter term chart for subscribers since the monthly chart hides shorter term activity and Jupiter Uranus contacts are very strong.

The Jupiter in waxing trine to Uranus aspect which is exact on Sept 25th will be joined by Mars in early October making this a grand trine. All planets will be in fire sign, Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo, and Uranus in Aries. That's a lot of fire energy. If we don't blow the world up with awesome fire power this could represent a startling breakthrough in some field of activity. Freedom will be emphasized. People (including leaders) should think and then think again before they rush into a decision.

In summary I am looking for a Major cycle trough which should be this coming week or next. It could be a little deeper than normal due to the 224 cd cycle also due for a low. With Mars moving into Sagittarius expect market volatility for 5 to 6 weeks which may be very good for traders and confusing for longer term strategies. The FED minutes may have a dramatic effect.

There are other very significant transits hitting in late September and October but they are reserved for subscribers. Very important, watch the US$ closely. I will say Sept 24, 25th could be surprising.


Gold
Gold is in the 15th week of it's Primary cycle (nominal 18 week).  Gold broke through the bottom of the symmetrical triangle (light blue). This, by itself, is a bearish move as that line should now act as significant resistance when Gold tries to move up.

This is negative at a number of levels. Since the July 10th high Gold is making lower highs and lower lows. The current Primary cycle is also left translated and now lower then the start of the Primary cycle on June 3rd.

So none of the historical averages for a rise in Gold have past. Mars entering Sagittarius has a history of price swings in many markets.



I am looking for an Astrological aspect or evnt that would equate to depressed commidty prices at this time. I'll keep you posted on my studies here.

Silver is in the 16th week of it's Primary cycle. Like Gold we are lower in price than at the start of the Primary cycle on May 30, 2014. The Primary cycle is also left translated, which is bearish. Watch this week. Both Gold and Silver are in the time frame for a shortened Primary cycle which has an average of 18 weeks but a range of from 15 weeks to 21 weeks.



Crude
We are in the 20th week of the Primary cycle in crude or just starting a new Primary cycle. If new it will be bullish for the next few weeks. If not a Primary it could go down further. Like Gold, Silver and commodities in general, Crude seems to be in a deflationary period at least partly attributable to the high US$. I'm referring to WTIC crude. The current cycle was  very left translated which is bearish.



On a longer term basis, Crude could drop to the 85.00/CL area in the 4th quarter of 2014

Scotland the Brave
I'm of Scottish heritage.
Following is a short segment of a conversation with Gandhi when India sought independence from Britain.


Kinnoch: With respect, Mr. Gandhi, without British administration, this country would be reduced to chaos.
Gandhi: Mr. Kinnoch, I beg you to accept that there is no people on Earth who would not prefer their own bad government to the good government of an alien power.
Brigadier: My dear sir! India *is* British. We’re hardly an alien power!

Financial Astrology - Sept 7, 2014


SP500
We are entering the 5th week of the Primary cycle which started on Aug 7th. There are potentially a number of longer term cycles due in the next couple of months. September has a number of intermediate cycles due. First up is the first Major cycle (nominal 6 week) with an average range of 5-7 weeks. If there is no pull back then we will look for a 1/2 Primary cycle (nominal 9 week). I've noted on the chart when we could expect the Major cycle to trough out, that is the weeks of  9/15/2014 to 9/26/2014.

A pullback to the Major cycle trough is often near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement or the 1970 area. We are due for the index to start to reverse very soon (this week?)

SP500


And following is the DJIA which is currently similar to the SP500 waiting for the top of the first Major cycle of the Primary cycle which started August 7th.

DJIA


Also note I've added the Lunar (blue squares) and Solar Eclipses (red squares) to the DJIA chart. These need a range of +- a few days and their effects can be much longer, particularly the Solar eclipse. In this case the Lunar eclipse is tied into the Sept 25th aspect. More on this in the subscribers letter.

The week of Sept 22nd looks very eventful. Before we get there we have another perigee Full Moon on the evening of September 8th. This is a Moon that is in it's closest path to Earth for this orbit. It is also known as a Super Moon per Richard Nolle. Give this +- 3 days and look for violent weather, floods, geophysical events and potentially strange or violent acts by us human beings. The Moon's position, being close to Earth affects it's gravitational pull. This can also result in quick price swings in many markets.

Coming up the Lunar Eclipse is on October 8th and the Solar Eclipse October 23rd.

I believe we are entering an exciting, eventful time period starting now through the end of October. In the short term heliocentric Mercury has just entered  the mutable, fire sign, Sagittarius and it will be followed by Mars entering Sagittarius on September 13th. Heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius can result in wild price swings, so this combined with the Super Moon we could see big prices swings in a number of markets, particularly this week. Martian energy (fight or flight) heats up Sagittarius starting September 13.

Sagittarius is about ideology, philosophy and cultural identity. Issues of nationalism and patriotism are highlighted. Peoples beliefs come to the fore be it religious, intellectual or cultural. Sagittarius tests the tolerance, understanding and acceptance towards other cultures practices, customs and beliefs. This sign also rules travel and immigration or issues involving immigration often occurs when the sign is transited.

Of immediate importance is Mars will be in waning square to Neptune soon after entering Sagittarius on Sept 21. This is a signature of exaggeration and false rumors that may be designed to incite hysteria. Remember Neptune is illusion and delusion. False flag events come to mind.

In the middle of the month we will have the FED meeting on Sept 16, 17 and the Scotland referendum on September 18th. Either could be market moving events.

Back to market cycles we have the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle which the subscribers have had for some time. This needs a range of +-1-2 weeks. The exact date is Sept 17th but better to look at this hitting in a 1-2 week around that date.



Look at that cycle closely and note some have been at highs. This is an example of inversion when a cycle ends time wise but ends at a high instead of an expected low.

As noted in a previous post the 224 cd (calendar day) cycle is equal to the orbit of the planet Venus. See the last letter for more details.

The fact that many analysts are calling the markets manipulated we must still work with what we are given.

I found the following post (zerohedge) interesting and would explain the large volume transactions occurring in the middle of the night. That's night for North America at least. We have subscribers from all over the world.

The hard war aspects between Mars and Saturn have just passed but I would expect the fog of war to continue for some time. The Mars Saturn aspects in August will be replaced by a building stress between Pluto and Uranus that are an exact waxing square on Dec 15. This is a very long term aspects and I give it +- 1 month in orb. Pluto turns direct on Sept 22.

The month of September has two very powerful aspects. I'm going to mention one here as it demonstrates an Astrological principle, that is, all aspects between two planets are part of a cycle. The cycles always starts with a conjunction, then the faster moving planet starts to separate from the slower moving planet and start making other aspects.

Late in the month there is Jupiter in waxing trine to Uranus. A trine is a 120 degree aspect. The waxing trine is the first trine of a new cycle. There are three trines
(ex. 360 / 3 = 120). There is a waxing trine at 120 degrees and a waning trine at 240 degrees.

Following is a monthly chart showing the history of the Jupiter Uranus trine.



On this monthly chart of the SP500 the red circles are the dates of the Jupiter Uranus trine. Note, sometimes there are 3 aspects close together. This occurs when the planets involved are going retrograde. The one coming up is a 3 pass.

The more important thing to note is where I have typed waxing or waning. Note the waning trine typically does not do much other than short term up or down moves while the waxing trine always occurs close to a substantial turn down. In a 3 pass, like the one we are about to have, it could trigger the move down at any of the three near exact aspects. In the case we have now I'm expecting the move down to be early in the 3 pass sequence. The dates are on the subscribers letter.

In summary we are looking for a Major cycle crest then down to a trough ideally during the weeks of Sept 15 or Sept 26.

One more. Another cycle analyst, Eric Hadik, has quoted Bible cycles from time to time. Recently he mentioned 40 year cycle, as found in the Bible as "40 years of testing". Following is a monthly chart of the DJIA. The red vertical lines are the 40 year cycle. The next one is due in December 2014 however this would need a broad range, maybe +- a month. For those who have been around for a while you may remember the last 40 year low in 1974.



In Astrology 40 years is close to one half a Uranus cycle. The Uranus cycle is approx. 84 years therefore one-half is 42 years.

There may be a 42 year cycle when looking at the 42 year cycle below. Notice the better fits of lows. The next occurrence would be November 2016.



There are other very significant transits hitting in late September and October but they are reserved for subscribers. I've been asked why not include all crucial Astrological aspects on the blog. The answer is if I did, why would anyone pay for the service?


Gold
Gold is in the 14th week of it's Primary cycle  Gold broke through the bottom of the symmetrical triangle. This, by itself, is a bearish move as that line should now act as significant resistance when Gold tries to move up. I have sold most Gold holdings other than an ETF which holds physical. (CEF in the US and CEF.A on the TSX). I live in Canada, just outside of Toronto.

Notice the big down day on Sept 2. This is the trading day after the Sun opposition Neptune aspect which has a powerful influence on precious metal prices. The US$ index took off from the Sun opposition Neptune as well.

I'll be watching any attempt at Gold moving up through the the symmetrical triangle.



Silver is in the 15th week of it's Primary cycle.. We may be near a 1/2 Primary cycle so like Gold, watch Silver closely next week. For Silver we are also approaching a possible shortened Primary cycle trough. Good days for Silver for a change in trend or a big range day are Sept 10-11. These should be good for Gold as well.



Crude
We are in the 19th week of the Primary cycle in crude or just starting a new Primary cycle. If new it will be bullish for the next few weeks. If not a Primary it could go down further.. The current cycle was  very left translated which is bearish. There is much going on with crude and the US$. Much of the rumblings between the Ukraine ( backed by Europe, the US and NATO) and Russia have to do with gas, crude and the reserve currency status of the US buck. We may see more of this very shortly.



On a longer term basis, Crude could drop from 93.43 - 85.00/CL in the 4th quarter of 2014
