Financial Astrology - November 30, 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

This blog post will be mercifully short as I work on the December subscriber report.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 14th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the red line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Dec 7, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 14th week, with a dramatic move up, it appears we just had either the 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle top  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

From last weeks blog:
"Two Alerts were sent out to subscribers dealing with Gold and the SP500. Subscribers please note, the call for the SP500 is off if the SP500 moves back above 2,110." 

The SP500 never reached 2,110 so the call is still open but somewhat tenuous.

Gold had a surprising move down on Nov 17th and 27th. If Gold does not reverse early next week the call for a Primary cycle low is off as well.



The main aspects that have a history in Primary cycle turns for the SP500 between now and the FED meeting announcement on Dec 16, 2-15 are:
Nov 29             Sun square Neptune and conjunct Saturn
Dec 6               Mars waning square Pluto
Dec 10             Mars opposition Uranus
Dec 14             Sun waxing square Jupiter.

One of these dates +- 2 td's should mark a turn in the SP500. I'm leaning toward Dec 14th. This would be a change in trend but unsure at this point if it's the high for this cycle or the Primary cycle trough.

From last weeks blog:
"We are in the period where confusion and deceit should be prevalent. with Neptune turning direct in Pisces, the sign that it rules, and the long forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. Not a good environment for Mars in Libra. Watch for adroit politicians here and lies.

As an example Putin, at the recent G20 summit, presented evidence of G20 member states providing financial support to ISIS. Not one western paper has mentioned Putin's bombshell comments."

This turned out to be Turkey who were buying crude from ISIS and processing it. They are in effect funding the ISIS group. Who is buying the cheap refined products has yet to be exposed. Turkey's surprise attack on a Russian jet are a good example of the Saturn / Neptune square and their deceitful energies.

Remember the Saturn / Neptune square "is often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates and money valuation problems in general"

Following is an excerpt from the monthly letter. It has been there for many months.

Also from last week"
"In short, religious strife will continue and probably spread from the mid-East. There may be a rise in religious terrorists or kidnappings and this could be as early as the fall of 2015. These problems could first arise in Europe (Spain?) but the US is vulnerable as well. These actions and general environment could effect the US and world economies by mid 2016. South America should be included as well."

Attacks from religious terrorists should continue into December 2015 and again pick up in mid-April 2016 when Mars turns stationary in religious Sagittarius and makes difficult aspects, conjunct Saturn and square Neptune. There are also harsh aspects to the ISIS formation chart.

Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules the law, religion, philosophy and science. With the square to Neptune is a good signal for a religious message that gets perverted.

November 30 and this period of time look very volatile for the markets and may get more so, particularly if there are more attacks next week or the first two weeks in December.

It should be noted Mars will translate the Uranus / Pluto square the second week of December which is the week before the next FED meeting where they have currently planned to increase interest rates. Watch FED announcements closely.

With Mars, Uranus and Pluto in aspect an explosive event may be imminent.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan '16 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb. These two cycles may have hit there trough at the August 2015 lows but that low was not very deep.

Kitchin cycle on the SP500 chart. This is a monthly chart. cycles may appear closer than when they actually due.

The following weekly chart shows the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages and the fact price broke through both averages But have moved above the averages this past week. Also the 21 and 34 week moving averages are still pointing down or flat.  This is looking like a 4-Year low.

The question is, do we have a significant low in front of us. At this point I think yes and it could be the December '15 - January '16 time frame.



Neptune is prominent particularly in the second half of November 2015. We've mentioned watching Jupiter and Neptune aspects and events for swings in crude. High and low. We've also noted Neptune often brings illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehood.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms. Lack of water, or a problem with water, is going to be a major problem in the not too distant future.

From now through to February 2016 Uranus and Pluto move closer together to the square which we wrote much about in 2014 and early in 2015. For new subscribers or anyone, use the search facility on the blog. Search for "Uranus square Pluto". We should mention Mercury will go retrograde in January 2016 and add energy to the Uranus / Pluto square near the end of January.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes.

DJIA               May 19, 2015
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014

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. Saturn changed signs into Sagittarius on Sept 17th and will be there until Dec 20, 2017.

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 the August low be it?  The Saturn square Neptune aspect (light green squares) on the following chart are often found near changes in inflation, interest rates or money valuation problems in general. I remember my 21% mortgage rate in the early 80's, the last time Saturn and Neptune were in waning square.



The Saturn waning square to Neptune is becoming the most prominent aspect going forward. It's a 3 pass with the first exact date on Nov 26th. The last exact square is in August 2016 but it's effects will be passed that date as well. It is confusing and depressing with no one in apparent control.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th.

We are entering the 18/19th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. It is quite possible Gold put in a Primary cycle crest on Oct 15th in which case we would be heading down into it's Primary cycle bottom. I sent out an Alert last week regarding Gold.

We are looking for a trough which I had expected this coming week, but didn't expect the sharp move down on Nov 27 although this is close to a 168 td cycle trough I follow.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through three Venus price lines.. At this point Gold made a low on November 18th, the day Neptune turned direct. We had expected a rise in Gold after the Neptune direct date but wasn't expecting it so early based on the history of the aspect.

Nov 18th could have been the Primary cycle low but we need to see more price action to confirm.

I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year. The move should be up.



Crude
This coming week of Nov 30th we should be entering the 14th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune (Nov 26th) and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn on Nov 29th.

I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. If they ever left. As mentioned Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules and is most powerful here.

Looking out at the major transits in 2016 I'll be looking for a bottom in crude in 2016.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 13th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the blue line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Nov 30, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 13th week, with a dramatic move up, it appears we just had either the 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle top  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

Two Alerts were sent out to subscribers dealing with Gold and the SP500. Subscribers please note, the call for the SP500 is off if the SP500 moves back above 2,110.



On Nov 20th Venus is in waxing square to Pluto on Friday night with the market rising. Venus will be translating the Uranus / Pluto square which is still active as Uranus and Pluto move closer together. Note, they will not get to an exact position. Nov 20th was also OPEX.

After this week we will enter a period where confusion and deceit should be prevalent. with Neptune turning direct in Pisces, the sign that it rules, and the long forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. Not a good environment for Mars in Libra. Watch for adroit politicians here and lies.

As an example Putin, at the recent G20 summit, presented evidence of G20 member states providing financial support to ISIS. Not one western paper has mentioned Putin's bombshell comments.


Saturn and Neptune are opposite energies. While Saturn is about responsibility, accountability and the building of concrete structures in the physical world. Neptune is about illusion, delusion, deceit and lies. It is anything but responsible and accountable. On the positive side, Neptune can be very spiritual and other-worldly but when in hard aspect often displays it's other side. This aspect is often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates and money valuation problems in general.

Following is an excerpt from the monthly letter. It has been there for many months.

"Jupiter square Pluto Oct 2016 - Dec 2016
As noted ..... this could bring international terrorism to the fore once again. It was a definite effect on economic cycles and political power.

In short, religious strife will continue and probably spread from the mid-East. There may be a rise in religious terrorists or kidnappings and this could be as early as the fall of 2015. These problems could first arise in Europe (Spain?) but the US is vulnerable as well. These actions and general environment could effect the US and world economies by mid 2016. South America should be included as well.

There is also a difficult Saturn aspect.
Saturn waning square Neptune Nov 2015 - Dec 2015, June 2016 - Aug 2016
Suffering, pestilence, sickness, inflation or money valuation problems. The development of socialism and self-sacrifice. This aspect should result in falling commodity prices and since this aspect will occur 3 times commodities prices may be volatile. This is also an aspect for a worldwide drug problem, illness or pandemic."

Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules the law, religion, philosophy and science. With the square to Neptune is a good signal for a religious message that gets perverted.

We should see a move in the markets closer to the Saturn / Neptune square. As mentioned before, this is a very long term aspect. These need a trigger and there are 3 possible triggers close by.

Nov 18th, Neptune turns Direct
Nov 25th, Full Moon with the Sun within 3 degrees of Saturn
Nov 29th, Sun square Neptune and conjunct Saturn.

Looking at these Nov 30 could be a more important date but they all need +- 3 td's at least but we should keep in mind deceit and delusion.

This period of time looked very volatile for the markets and may get more so, particularly if there are more attacks next week or the first two weeks in December.

To summarize.
We could get market turns near but it should be volatile.
Nov 18th         Neptune turns direct
Nov 20, 23      Venus starts it's translation of the Uranus Pluto square (they are close)
Nov 30                        One trading day after the Sun translates the Neptune, Saturn square

It should be noted Mars will translate the Uranus / Pluto square the second week of December which is the week before the next FED meeting where they have planned to increase interest rates. Watch FED announcements closely.

With Mars, Uranus and Pluto in aspect an explosive event may be imminent.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan '16 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb.

The following is very recent FED news. Will we get a surprise Monday?


Heliocentrically we have Mars opposing Neptune which is exact on the US Thanksgiving, November 26th. This is the same day the geocentric Saturn / Neptune square is exact.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms. Lack of water, or a problem with water, is going to be a major problem in the not too distant future.

It is confusing and depressing with no apparent control.

Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 17/18th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. It is quite possible Gold put in a Primary cycle crest on Oct 15th in which case we would be heading down into it's Primary cycle bottom. I sent out an Alert this week regarding Gold.

We may have seen the trough in Gold last week. Nov 19th had heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius which often sees swings in Gold prices. Bear in mind the FED or any central banks don't want to see Gold rising.
The red squares on the following chart are something I'm testing as a forecasting tool. The first 2 squares are in early December.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through three Venus price lines.. At this point Gold made a low on November 18th, the day Neptune turned direct. We had expected a rise in Gold after the Neptune direct date but wasn't expecting it so early based on the history of the aspect.

Nov 18th could have been the Primary cycle low but we need to see more price action to confirm.

I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year. The move should be up.



Crude
This coming week of Nov 2nd we should be entering the 13th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune (Nov 26th) and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn on Nov 29th.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 12th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. See the blue line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Nov 30, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 12th week, with a dramatic move up, it appears we just had either the 1/2 Primary or Primary cycle top  on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle).

The 2 weeks ago blog mentioned the Venus / Mars conjunction and that it had a history of occurring near Primary crests or troughs which occurred after the exact date. Well the Venus / Mars conjunction was Nov 2nd and the top looks like Nov 3rd.



Previous comments:
On last weeks blog we mentioned "Venus in Libra often marks a move down given +- 1 week." Venus entered Libra on Nov 8th just before the start of the move down. Venus exits Libra on December 4th. Looking back at previous instances sometimes the markets have gone down the whole period while Venus is in Libra. Other instances have the markets going down, approximately 1/2 the period and then up. 1/2 would take us to Nov 23rd. A few instances have been up, usually when the market was already down.

In our current case the markets often change trend near the Neptune Direct date +- 5 td's. Neptune turns direct on Nov. 18th.

We also mentioned on the blog last week the Mars / North Node conjunction which was exact on Nov 12th. Regarding the Mars / North Node conjunction we said
"Watch for increased military activity, terrorists and explosives." I've just heard of the explosions in Paris but have no details.

It's interesting to note, on the chart for the 5th Republic of France, Oct 5, 1958, 0:00am CET, Paris, Mars is within a few minutes of entering the 4th House, the homeland on Friday Nov. 13th.

On Nov 20th Venus is in waxing square to Pluto. If the market is still down watch for a reversal near this date. Venus will be translating the Uranus / Pluto square which is still active as Uranus and Pluto move closer together. Note, they will not get to an exact position. Nov 20th is also OPEX.
After this week we will enter a period where confusion and deceit should be prevalent. with Neptune turning direct in Pisces, the sign that it rules, and the long forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. Not a good environment for Mars in Libra. Watch for adroit politicians here and lies.

Saturn and Neptune are opposite energies. While Saturn is about responsibility, accountability and the building of concrete structures in the physical world. Neptune is about illusion, delusion, deceit and lies. It is anything but responsible and accountable.

Nov 18th, Neptune turns Direct
Nov 25th, Full Moon with the Sun within 3 degrees of Saturn
Nov 29th, Sun square Neptune and conjunct Saturn.

Looking at these Nov 30 could be a more important date but they all need +- 3 td's at least.

This period of time looked very volatile for the markets and may get more so, particularly if there are more attacks.

This signature should auger in a very uncomfortable period of time for the market and many facets of life well into 2016. This will seem depressing, confusing

To summarize.
We could get market turns near the following dates but it should be volatile.
Nov 18th         Neptune turns direct
Nov 20, 23      Venus starts it's translation of the Uranus Pluto square (they are close)
Nov 30            The day after the Sun translates the Neptune, Saturn square

It should be noted Mars will translate the Uranus / Pluto square the second week of December which is the week before the next FED meeting where they have planned to increase interest rates. Watch FED announcements closely.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan '16 as a potential time period for these cycles. They are long term cycles and need a broad orb.

The following weekly chart shows the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages and the fact price broke through both averages on the way back up but have fallen back through these moving averages. Not a bullish sign. Also the 21 and 34 week moving averages are still pointing down.  We would expect the 21 week to start curling up and crossing the 34 week if this was the 4 year low.  

From last weeks blog "We could see a pull back before the 21 week crosses over the 34 week moving average".

We can't confirm the 4 year until this takes place. In addition the 4 year low is usually at least a 20% correction while this time only 16%.

The question is, do we have a significant low in front of us. At this point I think yes and it could be the December '15 - January '16 time frame.



Neptune is prominent particularly in the second half of November 2015. We've mentioned watching Jupiter and Neptune aspects and events for swings in crude. We've also noted Neptune often brings illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehood.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms. Lack of water is going to be a major problem in the not too distant future.

Could the August low be it?  The Saturn square Neptune aspect (light green squares) on the following chart are often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates. I remember my 21% mortgage rate in the early 80's, the last time Saturn and Neptune were in waning square.



The Saturn waning square to Neptune is becoming the most prominent aspect going forward. It's a 3 pass with the first exact date on Nov 26th but the effects can be felt now.
The last exact square is in August 2016 but it's effects will be passed that date as well.
It is confusing and depressing with no apparent control.

Rather than increasing rates the FED may be going into QE infinity and beyond. For those wishing to blame someone, the names on the following chart are the people who created the policies which resulted in the financial system crash in 2008, 2009. The problem was too much debt. Their solution has been to create super debt. This could create another crash scenario, but we should first wait to see what the FED will do on Dec 15,16.



Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 17th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. It is quite possible Gold put in a Primary cycle crest on Oct 15th in which case we would be heading down into it's Primary cycle bottom. I sent out an Alert a couple of weeks ago to get out of Gold.

I'm looking for a trough in Gold this coming week and a move up. Nov 19th has heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius which often sees swings in Gold prices.

The move down in Gold and commodities this week seems to have put the rate increases under question. Why am I not surprised.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through three Venus price lines. I'm expecting to get support at either a Venus (green) or Jupiter (blue) price line. Two weeks ago I mentioned if Gold broke through the Jupiter price line (blue) it could go down quickly. It did.  In the short term the decline in Gold may be overdone. I'm watching for a Primary cycle low. Note the Commodity Channel Index at the bottom of the chart. Gold went through the -200 level and quickly bounced up. Although I'm looking for a Primary cycle low, I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year. The move should be up.



Crude
This coming week of Nov 2nd we should be entering the 12th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn. I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. If they ever left. As mentioned Neptune is in Pisces, the sign that it rules and is most powerful here.

SP500
For the SP500, cycle-wise we are entering the 11th week of Primary cycle  1 cycle that started on Aug 24th.  This cycle is aka, the nominal 18 week with a range of 15 to 21 weeks. This is the chart we have been following for many months. The chart only includes the Primary cycle which started on August 24th and the estimate of it's end. See the blue line and dates on the chart. It is anticipated we will have a Primary cycle low between Nov 30, 2015 and Jan 15, 2016.

Since we are in the 11th week, with a dramatic move up, it appears we just had the 1/2 Primary top on Nov 3rd (i.e. crest for this Primary cycle). We Need to watch this level early in the week. Last weeks blog mentioned the Venus / Mars conjunction and that it had a history of occurring near Primary crests and troughs which occurred after the exact date.



Note we stopped near the Fib 88.6%. 88.6% is the square root of 78.6%. The market would normally go down but we have a strong Doji on Nov 6th which is often a signal for indecision. With all the central bank actions over the past months it is no wonder indecision is in the air. Libra is a Cardinal, Air sign.

This coming week we have Venus and Mars entering Libra, a cardinal point, and the North Node entering Virgo. Generally speaking Venus in Libra is often a move down in the markets. Give this +- a week. Venus enters Libra on Nov 8th. Libra covers foreign affairs, war as well as treaties. The North Node travels backwards through the Zodiac and therefore crosses the same Cardinal point at 0 degrees Libra. The North Node in Virgo represents fate or destiny and Virgo represents our service to the world, as well as, our daily routines and generally fixing things up.

Venus is in it's own sign here and should bring out peacemakers energy but watch out for self-indulgence by some over the next few weeks. Mars will bring energy to this Libra, martian possibly military energy. Libra is a dual sign and brings times when making decisions is difficult. Mars can supply the energy to make decisions but need a definite goal. Without one mars here can result in restlessness and fidgeting.

Mars is also the most often noted link to the nodes at the times of accidents, due almost exclusively to sudden careless actions. Confrontations are very likely to surface with this connection and there are typically increased mechanical breakdowns and malfunctions. Watch for increased military activity, terrorists and explosives.

This week Nov 10th is Fib 55 td's from the August 24th low. We often see changes in trend on Fib dates.

After this week we will enter a period where confusion and deceit should be prevalent. with Neptune turning direct in Pisces, the sign that it rules and the long forming Saturn / Neptune waning square. Not a good environment for Mars in Libra. Watch for adroit politicians here.

We should see a more severe move in the markets closer to the Saturn / Neptune square. As mentioned before, this is a very long term aspect. These need a trigger and there are 3 possible triggers close by.

Nov 18th, Neptune turns Direct
Nov 25th, Full Moon with the Sun within 3 degrees of Saturn
Nov 29th, Sun square Neptune and conjunct Saturn.

Looking at these Nov 30 could be a more important date.

Other longer term cycles that may be close to seeing their lows in the next couple of months are the 6.5 - 7 year cycle and the Kitchin cycle (40 months). I'm looking at the period from mid-December through Jan '16 as a potential time period for these cycles.

Other long term cycle due, including the 6.5 - 7 year.

The following weekly chart shows the 21 and 34 weekly moving averages and the fact price broke through both averages. We would expect the 21 week to start curling up and crossing the 34 week. We can't confirm the 4 year until this takes place. We could see a pull back before the 21 week crosses over the 34 week moving average.



From four weeks ago blog; "If it was a 4 year cycle low the markets should be bullish."
They've been bullish since Sept 29th 2 days after the Lunar eclipse.

From now through to February 2016 Uranus and Pluto move closer together to the square which we wrote much about in 2014 and early in 2015. For new subscribers or anyone, use the search facility on the blog. Search for "Uranus square Pluto". We should mention Mars will go retrograde in January 2016 and add energy to the Uranus / Pluto square near the end of January.

Jupiter and Saturn are the business planets and Mars the planet giving energy to business activities.

On January 9, 2016 Jupiter turns retrograde and moves to form a square aspect with Saturn on March 23. This Jupiter-Saturn square aspect will be a prominent feature in the 2016 Sun cycle that commences March 20. We will cover cycle charts in the January report.

The third and final Jupiter-Saturn square, should be a sign for decreased business activity and lower profits is formed May 26, 2016.

On March 26, 2016 Saturn turns retrograde and moves to form a square aspect with Neptune on June 18, 2016. The third and final Saturn-Neptune square aspect reaches its peak power on September 10, 2016.

The first square in this series is Saturn square Neptune on Nov 26th, 2015. This is approximately a 36 year cycle so we are not forecasting for the day or week. This aspect needs a trigger and there two in November. This aspect is often present near times when there is a change in trend for interest rates or inflation. The writer, for example, had one of those frightening 21% mortgages in the early 1980's. This was the last time Saturn was in waning square to Neptune. The point is a change is triggered not that rates will be going up to 21% or anything near it. It can also be a period of sickness, suffering and money valuation problems.

There are 3 Mars conjunctions in 2016. Mars is conjunct Saturn August 24, 2016; Mars is conjunct Pluto October 19; and Mars is conjunct Neptune January 1, 2017.

Saturn square Neptune, Uranus square Pluto and these 3 Mars conjunctions are the outstanding influences on global affairs during 2016, but whatever happens will be triggered by events occurring in September, October and November 2015. Be forewarned.

Neptune is prominent particularly in the second half of November 2015. We've mentioned watching Jupiter and Neptune for swings in crude. We've also noted Neptune often brings illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehood.

Neptune also rules water. This could be showing a lack of water or too much as would be the case in large storms.

At this point, following are the highs in the US indexes.

DJIA               May 19, 2015
DJTI               Nov 28, 2014
SP500             May 20, 2015
NYSE             May 21, 2015 
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. Saturn changed signs into Sagittarius on Sept 17th and will be there until Dec 20, 2017.

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 the August low be it?  The Saturn square Neptune aspect (light green squares) on the following chart are often found near changes in inflation and or interest rates.


Gold
Gold put in a  Primary cycle   1 trough on July 24th. This could turn out to be a very important low.

We are entering the 15th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. It is quite possible Gold put in a Primary cycle crest on Oct 15th in which case we would be heading down into it's Primary cycle bottom. I sent out an Alert a couple of weeks ago to get out of Gold.

I'm looking at a trough between the week of Nov 9 to Nov 30. So this could be Nov 9 at the earliest and 1st week in December the latest.

The favorable employment rates in the US seem to have cleared a path for the FED to raise interest rates, thus the US$ increased relative to other currencies of countries who are still lowering rates or continue with QE. Commodities and Gold in particular were hit hard.

At the moment Nov 9, Nov 26 and Nov 30 look possible. All should have +- 3td's. With the rise in the US$ and it's effect on Gold could distort tyhe end of this Primary cycle.



On the following daily Gold chart notice Gold has broken down through two Venus price lines and sitting on a third. I'm expecting to get support at either a Venus (green) or Jupiter (blue) price line. Last week I mentioned if Gold broke through the Jupiter price line (blue) it could go down quickly. It did.  In the short term the decline in Gold may be overdone. I'm watching for a bounce early next week. Note the Commodity Channel Index at the bottom of the chart. Gold went through the -200 level and quickly bounced up. Although I'm looking for a Primary cycle low, I'm expecting the bigger move in Gold next year.



Crude
This coming week of Nov 2nd we should be entering the 11th week of a nominal 18 week cycle which started August 24th.

In the second half of November, Neptune will be highlighted as it changes to direct motion, Saturn squares Neptune and the Sun squares Neptune while conjunct Saturn. I expect crude to be quite volatile. With Neptune active to this degree I would also expect our old friends, illusion, delusion, lies, deceit and falsehoods to be apparent. If they ever left.
