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 20th week of the Primary cycle. We are in the time frame for the nominal 18-week cycle trough and the SP500 is beginning to move down. With the other cycles and Astrological events this may mark the end of the bull market that started in the lows of 2009. The exact 18 week would be the 1st week in August. The range; however, is 15 – 22 weeks around the 18th week. I’m expecting more of a move down.

Price has moved below both the 15 and 45 sma which is what to expect when the SP500 moves lower into a trough. This needs to be watched next week. In fact price is just below the 45 day sma. The nominal 18 week cycle should go deeper. Beyond the nominal 18 week Primary cycle this could also be a forming 50 week cycle and a 9 month (39 week) cycle.

August 3 (Uranus Retrograde) and Aug 4 (Jupiter square Pluto) seem to be the two aspects which started a slide. The following daily chart shows the first 4 forecast dates (light blue) sent out with the 2nd half  2017 forecast dates for the SP500.

The Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st is almost here. Things have certainly become more surprising as we approach that date. Remember, like an Aspect between two planets we should give the eclipse an orb of influence. The rules are in the Subscribers report.
The first of two eclipses in August took place on August. 7th ,  a Lunar eclipse. The stronger, the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st effects both Donald Trump and North Korea. It may also effect Israel and possibly other countries and leaders that I have not found yet. I have mentioned Royals in other countries or the country leaders as well.

If you have studied other Solar Eclipses you have seen some that have a visible direct impact and others that appear to do nothing. Looking back, it is interesting on April 7th transiting Mars squared the point of the Total Solar Eclipse. That day the US shot missiles into Syria. This may signify a very important event or events around the August 21 date.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicated a change in trend on August 8 and the SP500 started down. We won’t go straight down and may get a bounce next week.

Saturday August 12 Mercury will turn Retrograde. This has a history of a change in trend and will be moving backward from August 12 to September 5th. This marks a period of possible confusion. This is not the time to be signing contracts or finalizing agreements of any kind.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the key Mercury retrograde events. The red arrow pointed left is the Retrograde date. The small red circle and blue square is the Inferior conjunction of Mercury and the Sun. The blue arrow is Mercury turning Direct. Note the price movement of these key dates on the chart. I expect volatility through September 5th and probably beyond.

The Sun conjunct Mars (July 26th) 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. There have been many fires over the last few weeks, a typical Mars manifestation. Sun conjunct Mars often occurs at times when there is a steep correction. This combined with the trough for the 18-week Primary cycle and possibly the 50 week cycle we should now have started the pullback.

Uranus will be semi square Neptune from mid-July through October. The next exact date was August 11th. This will be a longer period of 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.

This blog post will cover the basic cycles in orb and then look at two Astrological charts for Donald Trump and North Korea.

In the subscribers report we go more detail on the upcoming Total Solar eclipse and it’s potential effect on President Donald Trump. This covers the Saros cycle which traces this cycle back to the period of time John F Kennedy was assassinated, the Cold War and Cuba / US conflict.

Another cycle that is coming up is the 50 week cycle. These are shown as the pink vertical lines on the following chart. The red squares show the Sun conjunct the North Node. There is a Sun North Node conjunction on August 16th.  As I would expect a substantial decline, this time may be unusual in that the markets have been distorted by Central Bank money.

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 waning square is often seen close to Primary cycle troughs although there are not that many occurrences. The next exact square is the first week in August one day away from Uranus turning retrograde. These two planets together can result in bankruptcy or other debt problems. Watch for exaggerated threats over a period of time.

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.

We will wait on any further analysis of the SP500 and Astrological transits and concentrate on what should be the big Astro event of the month, which is, the
Total Solar Eclipse on August 21st. I will look at Donald Trump’s chart and the chart for North Korea around the time of the Total Solar Eclipse.

Beyond individuals or countries the eclipse could indicate a strong earthquake, volcanic activity or violent weather. Remember Mars is the planet of war.

Both charts are the same format, they have an inner wheel and an outer wheel. The inner wheel is the natal chart, that is when they came into being. The outer wheel is the placement of the transiting planets.

For Donald Trump that is his birth horoscope. For North Korea the date the state was formed.

I brought up the August 21 Solar Eclipse in the May Subscribers Market Letter. This should bring significant events in that time frame, in fact it already has with the political unrest of USA vs North Korea or Trump vs North Korea . There is another conflict on the verge of getting hotter. That is between India and China. Isreal’s natal planets tie into the Eclipse like Trump and North Korea.

The planetary positions of Total Solar Eclipse can be seen in the outer wheel of both the Trump chart and the chart for North Korea. A Solar Eclipse is the same as a New Moon, that is a conjunction of the Sun and Moon. They can be seen on the left side of the outer wheel at 28’LEO52”. This is almost conjunct Trumps Natal Mars. The Solar Eclipse is in the 12th house. This is the house of hidden enemies, secret societies, institutions, criminals and crime in general. This could make this a very volatile period for Trump.

The eclipse is also being trined by Uranus in the 9th house, the house of religion, teachers, lawyers, the supreme court, international commerce, shipping and public opinion.

The other critical aspect is transiting Saturn conjunct Trump’s natal Moon. This signature brings up the past and the native must pay their dues or correct past actions and may feel alone and burdened. There may be a feeling of rejection. In the case of a President the rejection could be from the populace or other leaders.

The North Korea chart has the Eclipse in the 4th house conjunct the North Koreas natal Saturn. This can be construed as negative for the people of North Korea. The forth house also covers the land, it’s owners of it and workers on it.

Again, we have Uranus trine the eclipse point although here Uranus is in the 12th house. This is the house of hidden enemies, secret societies, institutions, criminals and crime in general.

Another key transit is Saturn in the 7th house conjunct the Natal Moon. This is an uncomfortable transit leaving the entity self-critical and should provide a firm understanding of strengths and weaknesses.

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. Mars is the planet of war.

Although a Total eclipse can affect any place 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. It could be around the eclipse window. Israel as well. On this post I’m looking at North Korea.

This Total Solar Eclipse is at 28’LEO52”. This is the position of the Regulus, one of the 4 Royal Stars of Persia. As such I expect a Royal, from some family or leader of a nation to be effected by this Total Solar Eclipse. It could effect, for example, Princess Diane or other Royals, Donald Trump or other leader. These aspects could affect Israel and Netanyahu as well.


Gold put in an impressive rally over the last few weeks and just when I thought we would move down, Gold rallied again on August 8th.

For those reasons and from the work of 2 other Astrologers I’m looking at changing the current cycle count. That is, I’m looking at July 7 as being a Primary cycle low and the start of the current Primary cycle. This would put us 5 weeks along.

This count also looks at Gold’s recent Primary lows. It put in a Primary cycle low on March 10 and Dec 15, 2016.

The low on August 8th was just after Mercury left heliocentric Sagittarius on Aug 6th.. This latter aspect can indicate both a move up or the start of a move down. We had been looking for a sharp move here.

Gold has rallied off that July 7th low and is now at two recent highs and possibly due for a nominal 6 week cycle low but with the Solar Eclipse and other Astros coming up Gold could move higher here.

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.

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

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on August 8.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price line. Watch the Mars Price Line to see if it acts as support / resistance.

 As noted under the SP500 above Gold is often effected by Mercury turning Retrograde and direct. See the SP500 chart for dates.


We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the Primary cycle.  The move out of that date sure looks like the start of a 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.

Crude broke down away from the Planetary averages (Jupiter through Pluto – blue lines) last week. I’m looking for a nominal 6-week cycle trough or possibly the 9 ½ cycle lows.

Crude has moved up aggressively from June 21 We were watching crude as it approached the next blue line (average longitude of the planets Jupiter through Pluto). It bounced off that line and appears headed down. We must wait to see what the Solar Eclipse brings and the Saturn turning Direct on August 25th.

There were a number of aspects involving Jupiter and Neptune, which resulted in a move up from June 21st.  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. Let’s not forget Iran. There are a number of areas in the world with significant fires and conflicts.

Following is a daily chart of crude showing the price lines for the Sun (green) and Pluto (black). Note crude started up around June 21 and has moved up between two of the Sun Price Lines. Also note, longer term the moves down have stopped or slowed down around the Pluto price line. Crude price ended close to both the Sun and Pluto Price Lines. This coming week crude maybe quite volatile.

I’m looking for crude to follow up the green Sun price line on the chart. I’m looking for a change in trend at one of the Sun or Pluto crossing points. Like other indices and commodities crude could be effected by the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse.

One other chart I’m watching is the 16 and 24 week cycles on a crude chart. The 16 week is the red vertical lines and the 24 week is the blue vertical lines. When they hit together they form the green line. Note that it is often a low, a big range day or reversal. Next up is September 11th.


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.
