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 ending the 20th week of the Primary cycle. The Primary cycle is headed down into it’s trough. On the following daily chart of the SP500 price is now below the 15 and 45 day sma’s. There may be other cycles about to move down into their cycle troughs, notably the 50 week cycle. Other longer term cycles may have the trough lower than normal.

With the other cycles and Astrological events this may mark the end of the bull market that started in the lows of 2009.

I sent out an ALERT out to subscribers on August 16th advising them to sell or hedge their current positions.

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.

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 this 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.

Saturday August 12 Mercury turned 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. Mercury will join with Mars and both conjunct the point of the Total Solar eclipse on September 3.

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 on September 5th. Note the price movement of these key dates on the chart. I expect volatility through September 5th and probably beyond.

From last week:
“Sun conjunct Mars often occurs at times when there is a steep correction. “

Uranus will be semi square Neptune from mid-July through October. The last 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     Last 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.

The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The next 5 month cycle is September 4. The 5 month cycle often is at a low or the start of a slide down.

We won’t repeat the Solar Eclipse info of the last few weeks. I will include the charts for Trump and North Korea because they are being hit directly with this Eclipse. You may want to read the last blog post for more background on the Total Solar Eclipse.

Subscribers can read the August Report.

The Solar Eclipse needs an orb of influence. There are a number of potent Astros dead ahead. This week, after the eclipse we have:

Aug 22             Mars trine Saturn
Aug 24            Venus square Uranus
Aug 25            Saturn turning Direct – often occurs close to the 50 week trough
Aug  27           Mercury Retrograde conjunct Mars and both conjunct the point of the Solar Eclipse. War like aspect

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 Trump and NK 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. There may be other countries, leaders or Royalty effected by this eclipse.

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


Again read the previous blog post for more information. I should add Mars and Mercury (still retrograde) are going to pass over the eclipse point in early September. This is going to dredge up
things from the past.

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 big range days.

The next hits are Aug 29th then Sept 13

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. Also note, near the top of the chart is a light blue line. This is the Neptune Price Line. Note how it has been strong resistance to price and we seem to be coming down.


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 6 weeks along and either due for a trough in Gold or we could be going further and looking for a 9 ½ week move.

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. I have been looking for a low in Gold mid-September. All this is dependent on the results of the Solar Eclipse.

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 9 and the next September 5th.

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


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 possible 9 ½ cycle low.

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 until August 25th.

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.


  1. Do you have any view on cryptocurencies? Thanks

  2. Not yet. More study required on each.
    Bitcoin, etherium etc.
    Central Banks do not like crypto currencies.
    They want to control currencies.
