(July, 1 2017 – December 31, 2017)
Subscribers receive 6 months forecast no matter when they sign up.

For the SP500, cycle-wise I’m looking at March 27th as the Primary cycle trough and April 13th as a double bottom.

This puts us entering the 16th week of the Primary cycle. Instead of a nominal 6 week cycle I’m looking at the other possibility which would be a ½ Primary cycle (9 ½ week) cycle high. We are in the time frame for the nominal 18 week cycle trough. The exact 18 week would trough out during the first week in August. The range; however, is 15 – 22 weeks.

It should be mentioned there is a remote possibility we put in an early Primary cycle trough on July 6th. Price went below the 15 and 45 day sma’s. This was not very deep and early being in the 15th week. This possibility should be watched closely although I think it is too early. Looking at the major US indices both the DJIA and SP500 made new all time highs on July 14th with the Nas very close.

Price has moved above both the 15 and 45 sma which is what to expect when the SP500 moves higher. This needs to be watched next week.

Next week has the first forecast date for the 2nd half of 2017, July 17th +- 5 td’s (trading days). This should mark a change in trend. If stocks go down it would negate the possible Primary cycle trough on July 6th.

The next two weeks will see a number of Mars aspects. We can expect conflict, social unrest, terrorists and political upset and volatility in the markets. The latter could be sudden events dealing with the legislature or parliament. Subscribers have the full list.
For example, the Sun conjunct Mars could stand for issues involving the party out of power, the land and homes of the common people. Weather and agriculture may also be affected. Mars should be more active the week of July 17 then 24th. In particular July 17 and July 18th are possibly violent. Venus signature are also apparent. Venus standing for money but in this case oil and gas.

Uranus will be semi square Neptune from mid-July through October. This will be a longer period delusion / deception. It may be more like a fog that has descended that is confusing. For the markets people won’t know what the direction will be. A more precise description will be made available once we go through the changes associated with the Astrological aspect in late July and mid-August.

The following chart shows the 40 week cycle on the Dow Jones chart. At it’s current rate it will be in it’s trough area close to the trough for the Primary cycle which is the 1st week in August. The vertical blue lines are the 40 week cycle.

Another cycle that is coming up is the 50 week cycle. These are shown as the pink vertical lines. The next one is by date is July 24th but I would say July or August. As I would expect a 10-12% decline this time may be unusual in that the markets have been distorted by Central Bank money.

I had shown the 7 years chart some time ago. Following is that chart. The vertical lines are the 84 months (7 year). The short red lines are the potential orb of influence. You can see the current 7 year is very overdue.

We still have:
-           the 45 year Saturn / Uranus trine       Next due November 11
-          The 12 year Jupiter /  Pluto Square     Next due August 4th
-          The 14 year Jupiter / Uranus opposition Next due Sept. 28

These longer-term aspects need a broad orb and should be +- a few weeks at least. They have been described in the subscriber report. Note the Jupiter / Pluto square is often seen close to Primary cycle troughs.

In addition to the above there is a potent transit between transiting Saturn square the USA natal Neptune.

Hard aspects to the USA's Neptune and Mars often coincide with financial disruption. Saturn will square the USA Neptune and oppose it's natal Mars 3 times in 2017. January, July and October.

The effect of Saturn square Neptune is deflationary. With the buildup of credit in the economy the above aspects could bring on defaults, cash shortages putting stress on the credit markets. Any signs of deflation or defaults should cause the central banks to print. Inflation is quite possible after that.

Following is a chart of the SP500 and the Heliocentric Bradley indicator. The blue horizontal line. Watch for turns in price as the Bradley makes turns. It has no direction. It just tries to identify changes in trend and we may see a turn on Monday or Tuesday.

I continue to watch the 24th harmonic cycle (360 / 24) cycles for short term turns. The brown squares are Sun / Saturn 24 degrees on the following daily chart. The blue vertical lines are 24 cd’s (calendar days).

June 29th and July14th were a big range days.

The next hits are July 28th then Aug 11th.

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

These price lines can act as support / resistance. It has been at highs and lows. Note also when they cross often gets a reaction in price on a short term basis.

I brought up the August 21 Solar Eclipse in the May market letter. This should bring significant events in that time frame. In the mean time, I will monitor transits that may hit the location of the Solar Eclipse. An example is May 15th when the North Node transits over the point of the eclipse. 

The path of this very important Eclipse is seen in the following:

For Total Solar Eclipses look for surprising and important events. I’m going to mention other eclipses that crossed the USA. I’ll leave the discussion of Saros and Metonic cycles for the subscriber’s report. This eclipse has Uranus trining the eclipse. This could stand for scientific or technological breakthroughs. It could also be a military or terrorist event

This eclipse should also affect President Trump as the eclipse is within 2 degrees of natal Mars in Trump’s birth horoscope. It is also almost on his ascendant. This could be a sudden breakthrough or surprising event.

Although a Total eclipse can affect any places on the planet it is usually strongest in the central eclipse path (see red lines on these charts)

The following 2 chart shows the last and the next Total Solar eclipses that cross the USA. The dates are June 8, 1918 and April 8, 2024. The June 8th date is close to the Spanish Flu breakout.

Includes June 8, 1918

And Including the April 8, 2024 eclipse.

Where the eclipses cross can be a reactivation of an older eclipse. Note the two crossings in the north western states. This is approximately the location of Mount St. Helens.

I’ll come back to Iran in a future post. I’m expecting more problems involving Iran over the summer months.


We put in a low in Gold on December 15th, 2015 which was the 7.4-year cycle low in Gold

Gold appears to have put in a Primary cycle low on May 9th. which would put us in the 10th week of the Primary cycle.

Gold most often starts a Primary cycle with a nominal 6 week sub-cycle. Gold is currently 34 td’s along and had looked like a nominal 6 week cycle trough on May 9th.

Gold, however, has continued down. We may be looking at a longer term cycle forming with Gold headed down. This may be the 17 / 34 month cycle. If this is the 17 month cycle it would usually appear in June, 17 months from the December 2016 low. The 17 month cycle is late as we wait for the trough.

If so watch Gold to make a low in July / August then up.

The following chart shows seasonal tendencies for Gold. The 2nd half of the year, on average, is up.

Short term there is a change in trend indicator for Gold. It’s on the subscribers list of forecast dates for Gold.

From last weeks blog:
“This is very important. We want to see a 6 week cycle trough and then a move up. If we continue down Gold may be falling into a longer term cycle, the 34 / 17 month cycle. For now I’m waiting to confirm a 6 week cycle trough.”

I was looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year. The “Trade of the Year” but there will be pullbacks. We may be delayed.

I would expect Gold would find support in the $1180 area if it gets down that far.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines)
The red lines headed up are the Mars price line. Watch the Mars Price Line to see if it acts as support / resistance and watch the 27cd cycle, next cycle July 13th. Gold moved 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 early in the 7.4 year cycle which should be bullish in the long term.


We had May 5th as the Primary cycle low. I changed the Primary cycle start date to March 22 which results in a Primary cycle of 89 td’s from Nov 14, 2016 to March 22, 2017. This puts us entering the 17h week of the Primary cycle.

The horizontal blue lines are the average longitude of the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.

We broke up through the Planetary averages (Jupiter through Pluto – blue lines) on July 13 – 14th. around the 45.76 area. This may have put in a nominal 6 week cycle trough on June 21.

There are a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, coming up. The Astrological aspects are in the week of July 17. This could be a testy time. Venus squares Neptune on July 17th then Venus trines Jupiter on July 18. Jupiter and Neptune are the co-rulers of crude and NatGas.

I'm watching all aspects to Jupiter or Neptune, the two rulers of crude. Crude can also be effected by Pluto as it rules “things from the ground”. Mars is active during the next few weeks. It may be a hot summer for temperatures, politics and conflicts be they the USA vs North Korea or the Saudi’s vs Qatar or terrorist events.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note that recent move down. It stopped or slowed down at each Pluto Price Line and is currently moving up to the Sun price line (green). This looks like a move up off the June 21 lows.

I’m looking for crude to follow up the green Sun price line on the chart.

Following is a chart (Sagittarius Rising) of the USA in the inner wheel and the current time in the outer wheel.

There is a forming square which will affect the affairs of the USA over the summer and fall months (mentioned above). This is the square between transiting Saturn and natal Neptune. Note Saturn is retrograde.

The traditional influences are illusion, delusion, confusion, lethargy and possibly depression. It is as if everything has taken on a dull sheen. If you were a writer you would call it the experience of the writer's block. Rather than force matters, take some time to contemplate your life in a gentle, reflective light.

From a Mundane Astrology perspective, it covers socialism, and left wing political ideas. It is associated with mobs, secret plots, fraud, swindling, bogus companies, loss and liquidation. This same aspect was near exact during the election period. There are more cycles building during July / August period. More on this in the next subscribers report.

  2. Hi Gord. What do you think about the future of the housing market in Canada? Will it continue going down, or, will it, when the scare is over, go up? Do you envision significant interest rate hikes? Thank you!

  3. Housing has not gone down much considering it's been going up for over a decade. The areas that have gone up the most, Toronto and Vancouver could go down a lot further. I live just outside Toronto. My house has made more than me for quite a few years. I suspect, at the first sign of a recession the Toronto / Vancouver areas will really get hit. I had a contract with a condo developer around the time house (and condo) prices started up.

    Much of the buying has been from China. I remember one fellow who bought 6 condos in a stack in one of their building. I suspect the Chinese money will stop if we see a recession and then back in after the recession. I'm talking a few years here.

  4. Hi Gord, has gold put in the low? thanks

  5. We may be going down this coming week, but I'm expecting precious metals to move up in the 4th quarter if not before. It was mentioned in the ALERT sent to subscribers.
