Financial Astrology - September 28, 2015

 - Our second half 2015 forecast dates are now available.
                      - Subscriptions include the forecast dates and a monthly Market letter with                          eMail alerts for imminent trading opportunities
                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses

We will be sending ALERTS to subscribers with specific dates when there are imminent trading opportunities forming. There was a second ALERT sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and another on Sept 9th covering the critical dates in September

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 12th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 below and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

An ALERT was sent out to subscribers on Aug 17th regarding the big move down from Aug 18th to 24th. A similar ALERT has been sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and Sept 9th covering key dates for September and early October. The first and second dates of the last ALERT has been hit. They were  Sept. 17 and Sept. 25, 2015.
Some subscribers have made a good amount of money from these ALERTS, including me. I am an active trader. There are eventful dates in the last ALERT still to unfold.

As this primary cycle started on July 7 and at this point made a crest on July 20th it is a very left translated and therefore quite bearish. I don't expect the high will be taken out during this nominal 18 week cycle. I'm expecting September and the first part of October to be very volatile and most likely we will see another sharp move.

The low at August 25th was either a nominal 6 week cycle trough which was 7 weeks along or a 1/2 primary cycle trough. It could quite possibly be the 50 week cycle low and also possible is the 4 year low. This is very important, it could have been a 4 year cycle low, although I suspect we'll see it over the next few weeks at a deeper level. If it was a 4 year cycle low the markets should be bullish.

The Sun just entered Libra, a Cardinal, Air sign and a marker that the first half of the Astrological year is over. This time of the year has a strong history of sharp moves down in the US indices. September's sharp move could have been it but I think we have another in front of us before the markets move up.

We should be looking for a nominal 18 week cycle low between October 19 and December 1st. This may be a short nominal 18 week cycle. If it comes in on the short side that would be the week of October 19th or close to it. This may also be the time for the 4 year cycle to hit it's trough.

Before we get there I'm looking for continued volatility but trending down with the possibility of another sever move down.

We just had Pluto turning direct on Sept 26th and early October we have a number of transits to Pluto.

The reason this is important is that transiting Pluto has just turned direct and is opposing the Sun in the natal U.S.A. chart. This is using the Sagittarius rising chart. Transiting Pluto is also squaring the natal Saturn in the U.S.A. chart as well. This is creating a powerful T-square between transiting Pluto and the natal US Sun and Saturn. These aspects will be in orb well into 2016. This may not be a great time to live in the US. Pluto will force a change in the status quo and the future is very much dependent how change is handled.

Pluto is all about transformation that will happen or be forced to happen. It is about the end of the status quo possibly in a violent way.

It is about extremes and the use or mis-use of power, including nuclear energy. In Capricorn this can stand for the people rebelling against the establishment or the "powers that be" using their power to control the people. Such control is often accomplished through fear.

Due to retrograde / direct motion (Pluto turns Direct and Mercury turning Retrograde) Mercury (the messenger) will square Pluto three time with the last one coming on October 22nd, a very rare occurrence. This is the first time Pluto has opposed the US Sun ever. Pluto moves very slowly. The Pluto / US Sun opposition has been going on since early February 2014. It should be noted, some countries that have experienced this aspect have gone through periods of massive change. This can best be described as a period of creative destruction where things are broken down in order to build up a new more functional and effective base. If you live in the U.S. this period will continue for a number of months, well into 2016.

Perhaps the US market gyrations are symptom of this Pluto transit as well. If we look back at when Pluto was conjunct the natal U.S. Sun it was the roaring twenties, before the collapse. That was the conjunction and we are now experiencing the Pluto / Sun opposition. Pluto is about change but with an opposition the change may come from the U.S. allies or enemies.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough. Due to the influence of other long term cycles I'm looking at December 2015 / January 2016 as a period of time for the 7 year cycle low.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle. Also note, after the sharp move down in August the bounce seems to be running out of steam and may be headed further down due to the FED meeting non-event. Look at the Momentum indicator. Also note, the 4 year cycle trough may be in front of us and would make sense to be around a primary cycle low.

If that turns out to be the case there should be a turn to a bullish market after the 4 year trough. Remember we could have already had the 4 year trough on August 25th. Again, I think it's in front of us.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. The blue midpoint lines are acting as resistance for the SP500. It is currently at 1938.13 for the SP500.



At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.

DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on May 26th
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015  50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
RUT               Jun 23, 2015
COMPQX      July 20, 2015


Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. As mentioned above Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this month.

And one more showing the geocentric Jupiter / Saturn square (red squares) including the following note (Every pass of the waning square between Jupiter and Saturn that has been a 3 pass has resulted in a longer term cycle unfolding between the first and last passages). Could this forming low be it?  There is more useful information on this chart, reserved for subscribers.



In Summary
So subscribers had the September 17th and 25th dates well in advance. In fact, subscribers get a 6 month list of potential turn dates when they register. If they look back at this list I had September 16th as the CIT date (Change In Trend). This list of dates was done in May of 2015. This is the power of Astrology. One can forecast important dates months or even years in advance. This list also had August 18th, the start of the severe move down.

Subscribers have dates where bigger moves are expected. Expect volatility and keep in mind the comments made above about Pluto and the United States natal Sun. There could be a surprise coming up, not necessarily related to the markets but may have an indirect effect.
There is a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse coming up on September 27th. Look for geophysical upsets, violent weather, violent events or Solar storms. 

Looking forward the days around Oct 19 maybe prime for a nominal 18 week cycle trough in the 15th week. Before we get there I suspect volatility, trending down and the possibility of another severe move down. Subscribers will have the dates. This is still in range for a 4 year cycle low as well.

During the Mercury retrograde period buying and selling, communications and negotiations are highlighted. Buying and selling can mean the markets. This is a period where you should be careful signing agreements or any contractual commitments. This does not mean not to go ahead with anything, just be extra careful on what you are doing. Ray Merriman of MMA has a saying for Mercury retrograde periods "Take profits too soon". Good advice.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 10th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. We may have put in the nominal 6 week cycle trough on Sept 11th. If so Gold should be bullish here. There is much confusion in the financial markets and I expect Gold to reflect this confusion as well. At a minimum we want to see Gold break above it's down sloping trend line from Jan 22, 2014. Any move above 1169.80 on a daily basis should be viewed as bullish.

With the currency wars heating up Gold should benefit. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. Gold often puts in a low while Jupiter moves through Virgo. Jupiter entered Virgo on August 11th and will be there until Sept 9, 2016.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold advanced to the heliocentric Venus price line (green). It got just above the Jupiter trend line (blue) and fell back from the Venus price line. Short term this is not positive.



Crude
This coming week of Sept 21st we should be entering the 6th week of  a new nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. The Sun opposed Neptune on August 31. This is looking like the crest for the first nominal 6 week cycle of the Primary cycle. This would have the cycle quite left translated and therefore bearish. I expect bigger moves in crude in late November.



To follow along with that theme there is an aspect, Jupiter waning trine Pluto on Oct 11 which may be meaningful for crude.


Other items, more specifics on the SP500, Gold and crude also US$, NatGas, Coffee reserved for subscribers. At $99.00 for a 6 month subscription, can you afford not to have it?

The 2nd half 2015 dates and subscription to the monthly letter (starting in July) are available for purchase.

Financial Astrology - September 21, 2015


 - Our second half 2015 forecast dates are now available.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 11th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

An ALERT was sent out to subscribers on Aug 17th regarding the big move down from Aug 18th to 24th. A similar ALERT has been sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and Sept 9th covering key dates for September. The first date of the last ALERT has been hit. it was Sept. 17, 2015. There are eventful dates next week as well.

As this primary cycle started on July 7 and at this point made a crest on July 20th it is a very left translated and therefore quite bearish. I don't expect the high will be taken out during this nominal 18 week cycle. I'm expecting September to be very volatile and most likely we will see another sharp move.

The Sun entering Libra, a Cardinal sign often results in short term trend reversals and / or very volatile markets and big range days. The Sun enters Libra on Sept 23rd. There is another date that is on the last subscriber ALERT which may influence when the markets may test the recent lows.

Pluto energies should also be highlighted. Pluto is about transformation and degeneration. It is about extremes and the use or mis-use of power, including nuclear energy. In Capricorn this can stand for the people rebelling against the establishment or the "powers that be" using their power to control the people. Such control is often accomplished through fear. The Sun trines Pluto on Sept 5th. This is the trine that always occurs approx. 20 days before Pluto turns direct. Pluto turns direct this month.

Due to retrograde / direct motion (Pluto turns Direct and Mercury turning Retrograde) Mercury (the messenger) will square Pluto twice within 2 weeks, a very rare occurrence. It should be noted while Pluto energies take more of a center stage it will be opposing the Sun in the U.S. national chart. This is the first time Pluto has opposed the US Sun ever. Pluto moves very slowly. The Pluto / US Sun opposition has been going on since early February 2014. It should be noted, some countries that have experienced this aspect have gone through periods of massive change. This can best be described as a period of creative destruction where things are broken down in order to build up a new more functional and effective base. If you live in the U.S. this period will continue for a number of months, well into 2016. Movements like "Black Lives Mater" are a symptom of this energy. Perhaps the US market gyrations are symptom of this Pluto transit as well.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough. Due to the influence of other long term cycles I'm looking at December 2015 / January 2016 as a period of time for the 7 year cycle low.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle. Also note, after the sharp move down in August the bounce seems to be running out of steam and may be headed further down due to the FED meeting non-event. Look at both the Momentum indicator.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines. We'll come back to this chart when the markets settle down.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October 15, 2014 low. More details for subscribers.



At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.

DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on May 26th
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015  50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th

Another chart is the following daily chart of the SP500 with a fan indicator. The dark blue fan line is 45 degrees. The starting point is the low at March 6, 2009. The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2126. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time. This is another bearish indicator.



Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn was in mutable signs, the colored x's. As mentioned above Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this month.



And one more showing the geocentric Jupiter / Saturn square (red squares) including the following note (Every pass of the waning square between Jupiter and Saturn that has been a 3 pass has resulted in a longer term cycle unfolding between the first and last passages). Could this forming low be it?  There is more useful information on this chart, reserved for subscribers.



In Summary
So subscribers had the September 17th date well in advance. In fact, subscribers get a 6 month list of potential turn dates when they register. If they look back at this list I had September 16th as the CIT date (Change In Trend). This list of dates was done in May of 2015. This is the power of Astrology. One can forecast important dates months or even years in advance. This list also had August 18th, the start of the severe move down.

There were a number of reasons I picked September 17th. Following is a list of some.
Mercury turned retrograde
Saturn entered Sagittarius
Jupiter opposed Neptune
Sept 17th was Fibonacci 233 td's from the October 15, 2014 low.

Most individual transits between two planets only forecast a change in trend and not the direction. The Astrologer forecasts the direction by taking into account all the other planetary positions and events, with an emphasis on the slower moving planets.

We will have an a number of trend changing aspects this month. Bear in mind the short term trend is down and the medium to longer term trend is up. Subscribers have dates where bigger moves are expected. Expect volatility and keep in mind the comments made above about Pluto and the United States natal Sun. There could be a surprise coming up, not necessarily related to the markets but may have an indirect effect.
There is a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse coming up on September 27th. Look for geophysical upsets, violent weather or Solar storms.

Saturn and Pluto energies will be active as will Mercury which often acts as a trigger. During the Mercury retrograde period buying and selling, communications and negotiations are highlighted. Buying and selling means the markets. This is a period where you should be careful signing agreements or any contractual commitments. Mercury retrograde can mark a period where don't work out as planned. This does not mean not to go ahead with anything, just be extra careful on what you are doing. Ray Merriman of MMA has a saying for Mercury retrograde periods "Take profits too soon". Good advice.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 8th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. We may have put in the nominal 6 week cycle trough on Sept 11th. If so Gold should be bullish here. The Fed's non action may have helped Gold.

With the currency wars heating up Gold should benefit. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. Gold often puts in a low while Jupiter moves through Virgo. Jupiter entered Virgo on August 11th and will be there until Sept 9, 2016.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold advanced to the heliocentric Venus price line (green). The Venus and Jupiter price lines cross on Monday. Watch Gold closely Monday for a move.



Crude
This coming week of Sept 21st we should be entering the 5th week of  a new nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. The Sun opposed Neptune on August 31. This is looking like the crest for the first nominal 6 week cycle of the Primary cycle. This would have the cycle quite left translated and therefore bearish. I expect bigger moves in crude in late November.


The following weekly chart for Crude shows the 16 week (red lines) and 24 week (blue lines). The green lines are when the red and blue lines converge. There is often a change in trend or big moves. The next occurrence is November 9th which is about a week away from Neptune turning direct. Neptune rules Crude.


Other items in the subscription letter, more specifics on the SP500, Gold and Crude also US$, NatGas, Coffee reserved for subscribers. At $99.00 for a 6 month subscription, can you afford not to have it?

Financial Astrology - Sept 14, 2015


 - Our second half 2015 forecast dates are now available.
                      - Subscriptions include the forecast dates and a monthly Market letter with                          eMail alerts for imminent trading opportunities
                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses

We will be sending ALERTS to subscribers with specific dates when there are imminent trading opportunities forming. There was a second ALERT sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and another on Sept 9th covering the critical dates in September

This post will be shorter than normal due to some computer issues. Be aware the next few weeks could be very eventful as we have both a Solar and Lunar eclipse and a number of Astrological aspects which could be signaling a big move. Much will depend on the FED's decision regarding rates and the markets reaction to it. This includes the reaction from other countries. Without the details the subscribers have I should say, it is time to be defensive or offensive if your trading includes shorting.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 10th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

An ALERT was sent out to subscribers on Aug 17th regarding the big move down from Aug 18th to 24th. A similar ALERT has been sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th and Sept 9th covering key dates for September. Two of the aspects emphasize confusion and delusion. others a sharp change.

As this primary cycle started on July 7 and at this point made a crest on July 20th it is a very left translated and therefore quite bearish. I don't expect the high will be taken out during this nominal 18 week cycle. I'm expecting September to be very volatile and most likely we will see another sharp move.

Pluto energies should also be highlighted. Pluto is about transformation and degeneration. It is about extremes and the use or mis-use of power, including nuclear energy. In Capricorn this can stand for the people rebelling against the establishment or the "powers that be" using their power to control the people. Such control is often accomplished through fear. The Sun trines Pluto on Sept 5th. This is the trine that always occurs approx. 20 days before Pluto turns direct. Pluto direct occurs on Sept 25th and will be in focus.

Due to retrograde / direct motion (Pluto turn Direct and Mercury turning Retrograde) Mercury (the messenger) will square Pluto twice within 2 weeks, a very rare occurrence. It should be noted while Pluto energies take more of a center stage it will be opposing the Sun in the U.S. national chart. This is even more rare as this period of time is the first Pluto /  US Sun ever. Pluto moves very slowly. The Pluto / US Sun opposition has been going on since early February 2014. It should be noted, some countries that have experienced this aspect have gone through periods of massive change. This can best be described as a period of creative destruction where things are broken down in order to build up a new more functional and effective base. If you live in the U.S. this period will continue for a number of months, well into 2016. Movements like "Black Lives Mater" are a symptom of this energy.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle. Also note, aafter the sharp move down in August the bounce seems to be running out of steam. Look at both the Momentum indicator and declining volume on the chart.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines. We'll come back to this chart when the markets settle down.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October low. More details for subscribers.



At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.

DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th

The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2126. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time.

Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces.

And one more showing the geocentric Jupiter / Saturn square (red squares) including the following note (Every pass of the waning square between Jupiter and Saturn that has been a 3 pass has resulted in a longer term cycle unfolding between the first and last passages).



In Summary
We will have an a number of trend changing aspects this month. Bear in mind the short term trend is down and the medium to longer term trend is up. Subscribers have dates where bigger moves are expected. Expect volatility and keep in mind the comments made above about Pluto and the United States natal Sun. Is creative destruction underway in the US? Saturn and Pluto energies will be active as will Mercury which often acts as a trigger. During the Mercury retrograde period buying and selling, communications and negotiations are highlighted. This is a period where you should be careful signing agreements or any contractual commitments. You may incur technology problems or with communications. This does not mean not to go ahead with anything, just be extra careful on what you are doing. Ray Merriman of MMA has a saying for Mercury retrograde periods "Take profits too soon". Good advice.

Beyond the markets the days around the Solar, then Lunar eclipses could see solar storms, geophysical upsets (earthquakes and volcanic activity) and violent weather.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th.

We are in the 7th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. If we reverse up from here this would be the nominal 6 week cycle trough. If we continue down look for the 1/2 Primary cycle in a couple of weeks. Like the SP500, Gold also looks week here.

With the currency wars heating up Gold should eventually benefit. This may not be until  the next 18 week cycle trough, that is late 2015 / early 2016. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. I'm expecting a pullback. Gold often puts in a low while Jupiter moves through Virgo. Jupiter entered Virgo on August 11th and will be there until Sept 9, 2016.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.



Crude
This coming week of Sept 14th we should be entering the 4th week of  a new nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. There is more to come but I would expect a bigger move in late November.

Like the SP500, this could turn out to be a very left translated cycle for Crude, which would be quite bearish.



We'll get back to normal next week. It may be a new normal.


Other items, more specifics on the SP500, Gold and crude also US$, NatGas, Coffee reserved for subscribers. At $99.00 for a 6 month subscription, can you afford not to have it?

Financial Astrology - September 8, 2015


 - Our second half 2015 forecast dates are now available.
                      - Subscriptions include the forecast dates and a monthly Market letter with                          eMail alerts for imminent trading opportunities
                      - We do not use negative option billing nor do we sell email addresses

We will be sending ALERTS to subscribers with specific dates when there are imminent trading opportunities forming. The last one is posted below this post. There was a second ALERT sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th covering most of the critical dates in September.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 9th week of a new Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on July 7th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks.

The next time band for a nominal 18 week (Primary) cycle trough is noted on the second chart of the SP500 and is from Oct 19 through Dec 1st 2015. There are a number of longer term cycles that may hit their troughs about the same time. Details on the subscriber letter.

An ALERT was sent out to subscribers on Aug 17th regarding the big move down from Aug 18th to 24th. A similar ALERT has been sent out to subscribers on Aug 24th covering key dates for September.

As this primary cycle started on July 7 and at this point made a crest on July 20th it is a very left translated and therefore quite bearish. I don't expect the high will be taken out during this nominal 18 week cycle. I'm expecting September to be very volatile and most likely we will see another sharp move. Much will depend on the FED's decision mid-month.

From an Astro perspective the forming Jupiter / Neptune opposition will be exact this month. Longer term transits like this need a trigger to set it off. This can stand for
illusion / delusion and can be either a lucky period or one of financial losses.

Two planets that should move to center stage are Saturn and Pluto. Saturn will be changing signs and will be opposing Admetos. Admetos is a trans-Neptunian point. This stands for patience, things at a standstill and depression. Saturn moves slowly. Karmic Saturn's entry into spiritual Sagittarius should have long term benefits. Saturn will lose some strength with it's entry into Sagittarius, as it will no longer be in mutual reception with Pluto.

Pluto energies should also be highlighted. Pluto is about transformation and degeneration. It is about extremes and the use or mis-use of power, including nuclear energy. In Capricorn this can stand for the people rebelling against the establishment or the "powers that be" using their power to control the people. Such control is often accomplished through fear. The Sun trines Pluto on Sept 5th. This is the trine that always occurs approx. 20 days before Pluto turns direct. Pluto direct occurs on Sept 25th and will be in focus.

Due to retrograde / direct motion (Pluto turn Direct and Mercury turning Retrograde) Mercury (the messenger) will square Pluto twice within 2 weeks, a very rare occurrence. It should be noted while Pluto energies take more of a center stage it will be opposing the Sun in the U.S. national chart. This is even more rare as this period of time is the first Pluto /  US Sun ever. Pluto moves very slowly. The Pluto / US Sun opposition has been going on since early February 2014. It should be noted, some countries that have experienced this aspect have gone through periods of massive change. This can best be described as a period of creative destruction where things are broken down in order to build up a new more functional and effective base. If you live in the U.S. this period will continue for a number of months, well into 2016. Movements like "Black Lives Mater" are a symptom of this energy.

Following is a monthly chart of the SP500 with the 7 year cycle on it. The red bars near the bottom of the cycle indicator show time period that the 7 year cycle is estimated to hit it's trough. This can be a big move down. Note the negative divergence between price and the TSI indicator on the following chart.



On the following daily chart I've noted the time period to look for a trough for this nominal 18 week cycle.



On the following chart which is the average longitude of the planets Mars through Pluto
(blue lines) converted to price. Price has fallen through a number of average price lines. We'll come back to this chart when the markets settle down.

Note the other recent OPEX dates (red circle). They have been at highs then down. Also note the red vertical lines (Fibonacci grid) which started at the Oct 15, 2014 low. The next red vertical line is Fib 233 td's from that October low. More details for subscribers.



At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes. Also noted are the dates the 50 day simple moving average crossed the 200 day sma, the so-called death cross.
DJIA               May 19, 2015 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014 50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on May 26th
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015  50 day sma crossed below the 200 day sma on Aug 11th
RUT               Jun 23, 2015
COMPQX      July 20, 2015

Another chart is the following daily chart of the SP500 with a fan indicator. The dark blue fan line is 45 degrees. The starting point is the low at March 6, 2009. The blue 45 degree line is currently at 2126. Price has broken through this line on 3 occasions recently and has now created some separation. This hasn't happened for some time. This is another bearish indicator.



And I've been waiting for this weekly chart of the SP500 with the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages to turn for some time. Another bearish indicator. The last time price broke this far below the moving averages it was October 2011 which many have picked as the 4 year cycle low.



Some of the biggest moves in the US markets have occurred when Saturn is in mutable signs. The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The following monthly chart of the DJIA shows when Saturn was in mutable signs, the colored x's. As mentioned above Saturn will be entering Sagittarius this month.



And one more showing the geocentric Jupiter / Saturn square (red squares) including the following note (Every pass of the waning square between Jupiter and Saturn that has been a 3 pass has resulted in a longer term cycle unfolding between the first and last passages).



In Summary
We will have a number of trend changing aspects this month. Bear in mind the short term trend is down and the medium to longer term trend is up. Subscribers have dates where bigger moves are expected. Expect volatility and keep in mind the comments made above about Pluto and the United States natal Sun. Is creative destruction underway in the US?

Saturn and Pluto energies will be active as will Mercury which often acts as a trigger. During the Mercury retrograde period buying and selling, communications and negotiations are highlighted. This is a period where you should be careful signing agreements or any contractual commitments. This does not mean not to go ahead with anything, just be extra careful on what you are doing. Ray Merriman of MMA  has a saying for Mercury retrograde periods "Take profits too soon". Good advice.

In addition to the aspects noted above there is a Partial Solar Eclipse mid-month and a Total Lunar Eclipse late in the month. Either can cause problems both in the financial realm and geophysical events and violent whether.

We have noted specific dates for subscribers but the whole month could see volatile moves in both directions. The Jupiter/ Neptune opposition in particular can stand for illusion and delusion on a grand scale. The last opposition was a 3 pass and occurred at the 2002-2003 "W" bottom.

We could get a rebound next week from which there is a considerable move lower. An old expression is sell Rosh Hashanah and buy Yom Kippur. This may be good advice this year.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on March 17th. It appears we got the nominal 18 week trough on July 24th.

We are either starting the 7th week of the first cycle or just put in the trough for the first nominal 6 week cycle on Sept 4th.

I'm looking at this as still being in the first nominal 6 week cycle. We may have further to go down. We need to see Gold get above the 1162 area for a more positive outlook.A move below 1117 should be quite negative.

With the currency wars heating up Gold should eventually benefit. This may not be until the next 18 week cycle trough, that is late 2015 / early 2016. We need to see more price action for PM's over the next few weeks. I'm expecting a pullback. Gold often puts in a low while Jupiter moves through Virgo. Jupiter entered Virgo on August 11th and will be there until Sept 9, 2016.

Besides the 18 week cycle there are a number of longer term cycles due and potent aspects which have a history of turns in precious metals.

Mercury turning retrograde, mentioned above often changes the trend for Gold.



The following daily Gold chart shows the heliocentric Venus (green) and Jupiter (blue) price lines. Gold started moving up when it hit the 2nd last 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (red vertical line). It appears to have started down on the next 27 cd cycle on Sept 2nd. I'm watching to see if we get support at the Venus price line.




Crude
This coming week of Sept 7th we should be entering the 3rd week of  a new nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

I said to watch dates near Neptune or Jupiter aspects and the Sun was conjunct Jupiter on Aug 26th. As repeated many times, any date given should be a minimum of 2 +- td's.



If you trade crude watch price closely. We may see a left translated cycle like the current SP500 nominal 18 week above.

As seen on the following chart crude moved up to the Neptune price line (green) and bounced. Watch to see if there is resistance at the Jupiter price line (orange). Also watch mid September where we have Jupiter opposing Neptune.

The lines are 45 degrees apart. 45 degrees is (360 / 8) = 45 or also known as the 8th harmonic.



Another chart we have not shown for awhile is the weekly crude chart with the 16 week (red) and 24 week (blue) cycles. Where they meet the cycle line is green and is typically found at crests but sometimes inverts to a trough. The next green line is early November. 2015 close to a Neptune direct signature.
