Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded
The next 1/2 year Forecast Dates are available for purchase.
(January, 1 2017 - June 30, 2017)
Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up.

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

The 1st Half  2017 Forecast dates, given to subscribers, are estimated from Astrological events only. As time unfolds we have the benefit of market cycles and possibly additional Astrological events. Nevertheless the original dates have fared very well. See the blog post of December 11, 2016, showing the original forecast dates for the SP500. These are the original 6 month dates with no adjustments for the last 3, 6 month periods.

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.

I'm looking for closes below 20,780 for the DJIA and lower than 2357 for the SP500. If we can get below those levels then this will identify the last few weeks as the end of a topping process.

We are in the difficult period of time mentioned for some time. The exact date for a number of the heavy transits have either passed or they are in front of us. Note there are a number of longer term transits in effect which are reserved for subscribers.

We have had a number of powerful Astros which I will put on the following chart (see colored circles). There are others but these should have been the most potent.

Light blue       - Jupiter retrograde                  Feb 6
                        The market increased it's move up.
Red                 - Sun conjunct Neptune          March 1
                        Expected a change in trend and got it. I had expected more of a move.
Blue                - Jupiter opposition Uranus     March 2
                        Expected a change in trend and got it. I had expected more of a move.      
Orange           -Venus retrograde                   March 6
                        We are still under the effect of the Venus retrograde.

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, change in trend. We went up today, March 10, after the employment report, but expect the market to move lower as the 18 week trough should be in front of us.

I had mentioned the middle two weeks of March 2017 have less powerful transits. There is a Sun squared Saturn on March 17th and on March 25 the Venus inferior conjunction with the Sun. The inferior conjunction of the Sun and Venus is in the middle of the Venus retrograde period and can be just as strong as the Venus retrograde and Direct dates.

Although we many not have many Astros next week we do have two potential events over March 15, 16th which could effect the markets strongly. These are, in the U.S.A. the probable 1st rate increase by the FED and secondly the Debt Ceiling Holiday created by Obama and Boehner is over. The second may be the most important.

The energies of the February 26th Solar eclipse should be climaxing during this weekends Full Moon on Sunday.

Also coming up is the Sun's entry into Aries on March 20th. 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.

The chart follows and shows the Sun entering Aries. This chart has Neptune on the Ascendant. This may represent the effect of big oil on the US. It could also represent uncertainty, delusion and hidden activities. This sounds like what is going on right now with the CIA, Wiki leaks etc. Neptune is strong. 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. Beyond the USA there are debt and bank problems in Europe and the mid-East and Korean have there conflict issues.

This chart also has the Moon conjunct Saturn in the 10th house. The Moon represents a nations people and Saturn discipline and restriction. The people of the USA should be under the influence of Saturn. This can be depressing with restrictive.

The Moon and Saturn are on the Galactic center during the Sun's move to 0 degrees Aries. In addition the Moon and Saturn are on the fixed star Etamin. According to tradition, the Saturnian predominance will give a liking for solitude. Good mental concentration. Dishonor and downfall and loss of prestige.

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.

Looking to the next Presidential election, 2020 Jupiter and Saturn will be conjunct near the cusp of Aquarius an Air sign. More on this and the Mutation conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the March subscribers report. The Jupiter / Saturn conjunction is a 20 year aspect and changes element approx. every 180 years.

The next estimated Primary cycle ( aka nominal 18 week cycle)  low had been estimated to be  March 6th +- 3 weeks with a range of February 13th, 2017 to March 19, 2017. It could also be the week of March 19, 2017 +- 3 weeks. March 6th, we can now see is too early but the week of March 19 is still possible.  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. The 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.

The second pass of the 14 year aspect, Jupiter opposing Uranus occurred on
March 2nd.  At times this opposition will be a T-square with Pluto at the Apex. The French Astrologer, Barbault considers this transit to be predominantly a capitalist oriented cycle. This transit could bring a spirit of  collective optimism. This may be particularly opportune at this time in the USA. Don't look for an immediate event. Look for a swing to the right politically. Revolutionary activity. This aspect has a history of market turns

There is a Venus cycle which could be important. That is every 8 years or 5 Venus retro occurrences, Venus returns to approximately the same spot in the Zodiac. Venus turns retrograde on March 4th 2017. 8 years ago or 5 Venus retro occurrences Venus turned retrograde on March 6, 2009. This was the day of the low in the major US indices. If, for some reason, we do not get a change in trend in late January / early February then the March or early April date would be a good candidate for a turn.

On the daily chart of the SP500 above. The brown line is an adjusted Bradley indicator. It's purpose is to find a change in trend. This is not straight forward to read and the details with video are in section 9 of the subscribers report. What appears to be the next Bradley turn is March 1st +- 3 tds.. Also Price is above both the 15 and 45 day sma's. and the 15 day sma is above the 45 day. This would still be a good time frame for the start of a slide down.

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 1st. This may have started the change in trend.

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

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 time frame.

There have been a number of earthquakes over the last couple of weeks. I'm expecting more. I look for earthquakes 6.5 and over.


December 15 may have been the Gold low we have been looking for. This puts us entering the  13th week of the nominal 18 week cycle. Since December 15th Gold has been trending up showing three 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.

Price is now below the 15 and 45 day sma with the 15 day curling over. This could be identifying a more severe move down in Gold. We should watch closely this coming week.

If Gold goes up early in the week this could mark a significant turn. If Gold goes down we do not want to see a close below the January 27 low. That would be a lower low.

Gold like many markets will be affected by the Astrological aspects from February 22 through April.

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. 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.

Beyond the nominal 18 week cycle there is a 13 1/2 month cycle that is due for a trough then up. This cycle typically lands in the 11 to 14th month. It may have been December 15th.

The following weekly chart for Gold has the 13.5 month cycle shown as the blue vertical lines. The purple squares are Uranus turning Direct. They often occur near a low then up.

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.

August 3rd was the start of a Primary cycle. We had the Primary cycle low on November 14. This would put us in the 17th week of a Primary cycle. The high is still the high of January 3rd. Price is now below the 15 and 45 day sma's and looks headed down into the Primary cycle trough. The 15 day sma is just crossing the 45 day sma. It appears there was some disagreement this week between the Saudi's and the US frackers. Watch crude closely on Monday.

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 50.33 and I'm looking for this area to be strong resistance, if 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.

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. We may get support at the black Sun line just below price. This is at 48.09.

I'm looking for a move down. The two price lines will cross again on March 21st +- 2 tds.

    Thanks Gord for this week's blog post. It is good that we are getting some comments on the blog. It shows readers are doing some thinking of their own. This week will be interesting, the other rate rises were in December, this one is potentially in March but all are just before the Winter or Spring Equinox. Gold has rallied after the rate increases, will it do it again? We shall see.

    1. Thanks for the kind words. A number of subscribers email me as well with questions but this section is find.

  2. The Spring Equinox may be a big event this year. When it occurs the Moon will conjunct Saturn and both are in close conjunction to the Galactic Center and the Fixed Star Etamin. The latter can stand for dishonor and downfall.

  3. Sir, when will crude starts its upward journey?

  4. Crude may wait until late April to early May to put in a low.

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. Sir, what is your view on Nifty of India?

  7. The Nifty should pull back with everything in the short term but positive longer term.

    1. it wl collpase like dow this year.

  8. Gold goes up early in this week. Should be a positive sign? Thanks

  9. You have been calling the top for along time but S&P seems to going up very fast continuously. Why is astrology and time cycles failing repeatedly?

    1. Also your desired close below 2357 was acheived. So is top in place? I know astrology and time cycles only give probable dates but they cannot be wrong repeatedly. Then it becomes chance.

  10. To learn how to solve problems in home and for anything, we use the Biblical Astrological Keys. Each planet, comet and constellation is sealed into the

    Tree of Life with the 12 priesthoods of Jacob, and each one then links and synchronizes to the proper key words of Life and Knowledge. This is the only Astrology ever written that has been approved by GOD, and really works. Turn on the Keys Pomona, Judith, for everyone whom loves GOD. They are as a light of the Israelites to us.
    The key words of the Oracles then balance properly into the scriptures. This can be used to solve problems, end conflicts, and so one. The complete Astrology works for jobs and companies, groups and relations and families.
    Wisdom and Understanding of Venus and Virgo. (Job 38:36)
    (Job 12:12-13, 28:12, 28:20, 28:28, 38:36, 39:17) (Psalm 49:3, 111:10) (Proverbs 1:2, 2:2-6, 3:13-19, 4:5-7, 5:1, 7:4, 8:1-5, 8:14, 9:10, 10:13, 10:23, 11:12, 14:33, 15:21, 16:16, 17:24, 19”8, 21:30, 23:23, 24:3) (Colossians 1:9)
    (Isaiah 11:2)
    This Astrology is linked to many doctrines; mostly the Bible, and even the Book of Mormon. The book of Mormon has a code in it that renders it flawless and proves it precise. Even a Leo shouldn’t have too much pride to look at these verses.
    Mercy and Wisdom of Venus and Virgo.
    (2 Nephi 2:12) (Mosiah 15:9) (Alma 34:15-16, 41:14, 42:13-31) (3 Nephi 26:5)

    Here is the synchronism of Venus and Virgo. (Proverbs 25:11) Moreso Adamant than gold this time; wouldn’t you say Pomona?

    Virgo – Abigail Susanna – rejoices, joy, graceful lily, majesty, justice, lovingkindness, love, understanding, goodness, grace, virtue

    Virgo is sealed to 15% the modern Abigail, 15% the modern Susanna, 35% the ancient Abigail, and 35% the ancient Susanna. They were both born modern Gemini and Taurus.
    Venus – Bathsheba – oath, voluptuous, mercy, wisdom, kind, heart, loving, gracefully,
    Venus is sealed to 1% the modern Eve, 14% for the modern Bathsheba, 15% the Angel of Pergamos, 1% the ancient Eve before the fall, 1% the modern Judith Pomona with her special key sealed in; a key that Egypt stole from Israel thousands of years ago. (Proverbs 25:11), and 68% the ancient Bathsheba. This is the Aphrodite Urania seal. Bathsheba means voluptuous, meaning voluptuous in spirit.
