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 22nd week of the Primary cycle. The Primary cycle is headed down into its trough. 22 weeks is around the maximum for the Primary cycle. If this trough is extended further it may indicate a longer-term cycle is active.

On the following daily chart of the SP500 price is now below the 15 and 45 day sma’s. The 15 day sma is about to cross the 45 day sma. We look for the 15 day to be lower than the 45 day sma at Primary cycle troughs. 15 days is the ½ cycle to the 30 day cycle (6 week) and 45 is the half cycle for the 90 day cycle (18 week) which is the Primary cycle.  

There may be other cycles about to move down into their cycle troughs, notably the 50 week cycle which often occurs close to the Saturn Direct signature. Saturn turned direct on August 25th. 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. I'm waiting for the weekend of September 2nd where we have Mercury (which is retrograde) conjunct Mars and both conjunct the point of the August 21, Total Solar Eclipse.

As suspected Trump has been very effected by the Total Solar Eclipse. There hasn’t been much from North Korea after the Total Solar Eclipse but while writing this blog post news came out of North Korea launching another missile. We had made the point last week that the Total Solar Eclipse could result in violent weather. Hurricane Harvey would be it.

Remember, like an Aspect between two planets we should give the eclipse an orb of influence. The rules are in the Subscribers report.
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. It needs a wide orb of influence.

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. This should be powerful.

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.

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.

In the subscribers report we go more detail on the  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. The red squares are the Earth conjunct the North Node.

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 turns although there are not that many occurrences.

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.

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
Mars 27           Mars conjunct the North Node
Sept 3              Mercury Retrograde conjunct Mars and both conjunct the point of the Solar Eclipse. War like aspect
Sept 5              Sun opposition Neptune (often a change in trend)

Beyond individuals or countries, the eclipse could indicate a strong earthquake, volcanic activity or violent weather. Remember Mars is the planet of war. As I write this Hurricane Harvey is entering Texas and North Korea has shot off something.

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.

The next dates are: Aug 29th and Sept 13th


Gold put in an impressive rally over the last few weeks and just when I thought we would move down.

July 7th appears to be the Primary cycle low and we are 7 weeks along. Note on the first Gold chart below, the red horizontal lines are the retracement from the move up from December 2015 to Aug 4, 2016. Gold has gone sideways at the 23.6% retracement. Watch for Gold to either fall back from here to put in a nominal 6 week cycle low or breakthrough and move up to the 9 ½ week cycle.

I’m looking for Gold to put in a high and then move down quite possibly next week.

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. It is possible August 17 was the nominal 6 week cycle low. If Aug 17 was not the 6 week cycle trough then it may be forming now and we may see it over the next 2 weeks. There is emphasis on the labor day weekend in the USA when we have Mercury (still retrograde) conjunct Mars and both conjunct the position of the Total Solar Eclipse. This could be a violent signature.

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.

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 still active during the next few weeks. Early September could also see a terrorist events and let’s not forget Iran.

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.

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 fall months. 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.


  1. any chance DX can have a relief rally? Thanks

  2. There may be a short term decline into August 30. Longer term I think further down. There was a call for the US$ going down right after the Aug 3, Uranus retrograde.
