For the SP500, cycle-wise November 4th was the Primary cycle trough1  which puts us entering the 20th week of a nominal 18 week cycle. November 4th was the 40 week cycle trough as well. 

It should be noted Primary cycles (18 weeks) most often start with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle.  The 2nd most common start is a 1/2 Primary or 9 week sub-cycles. The nominal range for the Primary cycle is 13 to 21 weeks. Currently the high of this cycle was on March 1 closing at  2396 in the SP500. This high is very late in the cycle. It is very right translated which by itself would be bullish.

This cycle is so late I expect the cycle to expand, probably past the 21 week area. With the upcoming Astrological activity I expect the markets to be volatile over the next few weeks and moving down into a trough. The last 2 months have been very difficult to forecast.

To summarize, there was a tremendous move up from November 4, 2016. It went sideways starting in early December then up again near the Jupiter retrograde on February 6th. From here the markets hit the Sun conjunct Neptune transit, the Jupiter opposition Uranus and Venus retrograde. These three hitting so close together should have given us a larger move down.

I had mentioned the middle two weeks of March 2017 have less powerful transits. The situation is now heating up again. March 25 is the Inferior conjunction of the Sun and Venus.

The following 3 charts show the last 3 Inferior conjunctions of Venus and the Sun. I have circled them in red.

As you can see from the previous conjunctions, this is often a short sharp move down.
This should start a period that is more volatile.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned there must be a source where large sums of money have come from to create this bullish move. It was reported on CNBC that the FED had injected an additional 267 billion into the markets. With the FED raising interest rates the much of the money went into banks and financial institutions.

Next week has a couple of more potent days particularly March 30 where we have Jupiter square Pluto.

Jupiter square Pluto 12 year - attainment of power of all kinds, growth of international terrorism. This is a 3 pass due to retrograde motion.

March 20th was the Spring Equinox, the day the Sun moves into Aries, a cardinal point. This is Western or Hermetic Astrology as opposed to Vedic or Indian Astrology. Although we call it Western Astrology it came from the area now known as Iraq. From here it went to Egypt then Greece then Europe and on to North America, The first vestiges of Astrology came from both India and the Iraq area.

While the Sun enters Aries there will be a Moon / Saturn conjunction near the Mid-Heaven. The Moon represents the people and matters of a common or public nature. Saturn stands for mature populations (Japan?) , epidemics, farms, mines, coal, minerals. Saturn can also stand for State funerals, public sorrow and disappointment.

Neptune is close to the ascendant on the Spring Equinox, Neptune stands for left wing politics, it is linked to mobs and secret plots, sedation, fraud, loss, vice and liquidation. Illusion and delusion are also present. It is in Pisces the sign that it rules. I've mentioned a number of times of a water event in the US. Pisces is a water sign.

I'm looking at this as a further pull back next week.

The Spring Equinox chart can be used as an Astrological chart for the whole year.

This is the beginning of the Astrological New Year. This chart is a representation of what to expect in the coming year. You can create this chart for the countries capitol or in my example for New York , the financial center of the USA and the world, for now.

Watch for potential geophysical events, violent weather or increased conflict. Mars is the planet of war, conflict and aggression. From other sources there may be an event or issue with water in the USA.

At this point March 1st could have been the crest of the current Primary cycle and
March 19, 2017 +- 3 weeks, the Primary cycle trough. Early April is another possibility with 4 strong Astros which have a history of a change in trend.

The March 6, 2017 forecast was first mentioned in our blog post of November 14, 2016.

On March 7th +- 3 weeks, Saturn conjuncts the Galactic Center. This multi week period could define a move down. This may be very important. Bear in mind we are in an 8 year bull market. A move down could start at any time, the above are the most probable from an Astrological perspective.

As mentioned in previous weeks both Israel and Egypt (mid-East) may come to the fore this year as regards to conflict and aggression. Iran and Turkey may be included as well. This may be seen before the end of April. This is connected to the on-going Saturn / Uranus trine, a 45 year aspect which is exact again on May 19th.

Mars is active and can result in war or conflict. The US should stay out of any conflicts as they should concentrate on growing health and legal problems at home. If the US does get involved it could result in many casualties.

Entering April the markets should really heat up, in particular the first couple of weeks. This is reserved for subscribers at this time.

I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 15 degrees on the following daily chart.

The last hit was on March 17th.

The next hits are March 31, 2017 then April 17th.

I have added 3 price lines to this chart.
Saturn - black
Uranus - purple
Neptune - light blue

These price lines can act as support / resistance. Also on this chart are blue vertical line which is the 24 cd (calendar day) cycle. It has been at highs and lows.
The date of March 1st is the same date as the 24 Harmonic. We went down.

Looking forward I'm expecting difficult markets in the late March through April timeframe.


December 15 should have been the Gold low we have been looking for. This puts us in the  15th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. Since December 15th Gold has been trending up showing two crests of higher highs and higher lows until February 27th where we had a nominal 6 week cycle crest and headed down. Gold showed a Doji on the close on March 10th. This is often a turn signal. It stalled for a couple of days and then went up.

Price is now above the 15 and 45 day sma with the 15 day curling up. This could be identifying a more severe move down in Gold. Watch closely this coming week.

Gold would benefit if the Debt Ceiling was covered by increasing the money supply and hence, inflation may be seen.

Gold like many markets will be affected by the Astrological aspects from March 24th through April 21st.

Following is a daily Gold  chart with the arrows identifying retrograde and direct dates and the Inferior and Superior Sun / Venus conjunctions. We had the Venus Retrograde date on March 4th then March 25 for the Inferior conjunction and April 15 has Venus  turning direct again. Any of these 3 dates could be a turn in Gold. I was looking for a move down near the Venus retrograde date of March 4th +- 3 tds which we got. It may have a little to go but we should be aware this could be a big move.

Note the circle on the chart in the right lower area. The bottom portion of the chart shows the planetary declination's. What is circled are 3 planetary declination's on approx. the same day. The planets are Mercury, Venus and Uranus. This is the same day as the Sun / Venus inferior conjunction, March 25th. The Parallels of Declination will emphasize this period. That's a weekend so watch March 24 and March 27 both +- a couple.

The next chart is a longer term monthly chart showing the 7.4 year cycle in Gold. They are the red vertical lines. Note that the 7.4 year cycle put in a low in late 2015. We are now in a pull back but we are very early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.

November 14 was the start of the Primary cycle. This would put us in the 19th week of a Primary cycle which continues to look weak and moving down. With the US shale and other projects there is too much supply into a weak global economy. The high is still the high of January 3rd. Price is now below the 15 and 45 day sma's and look like a recent double bottom.

The blue horizontal lines are the average longitudes of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto converted to price. They should act as good support / resistance areas. That blue line currently above price is at 47.97 and I'm looking for this area to be strong resistance, when we get there. Looking down 45.87 should act as support.

I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. As one reader pointed out this should include both geocentric and heliocentric aspects.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that move down went through the green Sun price line then bounced. We may get resistance at the black Pluto line just above price. This is at 48.11.

I'm watching the black Pluto line currently above price
