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 19th week of the Primary cycle. We are in the time frame for the nominal 18 week cycle trough. The exact 18 week would trough out during the 1st week in August. The range; however, is 15 – 22 weeks around the 18th week.

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.

We are stilling experiencing the Sun / Mars conjunction of July 26 and preparing for the 2 eclipses in August, a Lunar eclipse on August 7th and Total Solar Eclipse on
August 21st. The SP500 has been basically flat from July 19th. The markets have seen other time periods like this when the market indexes continue to move up. Just look at 2003 and 2007 before the 2008, 2009 meltdown. Also look at 1987 before the crash.

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 a legislature or parliament. For example, 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 40 week cycle we should be close to at least a pull back.

Uranus will be semi square Neptune from mid-July through October. 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. 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. It is exact on August 11th.

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 (54 and 18 year) which traces this cycle back to the period of time John F Kennedy was assassinated, the Cold War and Cuba / US conflict.

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 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. Any signs of deflation or defaults should cause the central banks to print. Inflation is quite possible after that.

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.

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.

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.

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 and with Mars somewhat explosive.

The eclipse is also being trined by Uranus in the 9th house, the house of religion, teachers, lawyers, the supreme court, international commerce, shipping (the sea) and public opinion. It can also new new ideas and inventions.

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 Korean 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.

From last week’s post.
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 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 should also affect Israel and Netanyahu as well.

We can't rule out earthquakes, volcanic activity, violent weather and social unrest.

A summary of planets and their image.

Moon       Rotates around the earth every 27 days, then an additional approx. 2.5 days to catch up to the earth's movement. 29.5 days

Mercury 88 days, approximately 19 days in one sign geocentrically

Venus      approx. 224.7 days, about 24-26 days geocentrically in a sign

Mars       approx 687 days, about 43 days (6 weeks) in a geocentric sign, except when it is stationary.

Jupiter approx. 11.9 years,  11-13 months to transit through one sign

Saturn    approx. 29.5 years, approximately 2-1/2 years in each sign

Uranus   approx. 84 years, about 7 years to move through each sign

Neptune approx. 164.8 years, approx. 13-14 years in each sign

Pluto        approx. 248.4 years (very erratic),  14-26 years in any given sign.

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 13th week of the Primary cycle.

I had been looking for Gold to rise into the July 24 – 28 time frame. Among other aspects Mercury enters heliocentric Sagittarius on July 27th. This latter aspect can indicate both a move up or the start of a move down. Watch for a sharp move in Gold July 27–August 6.

If so, watch Gold to make a low in late August. The low could drag into September. I’m expecting Gold price to rise in the 4th quarter of 2017 if not before.

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.

Gold currently looks like a turn down. This is a lower high so not bullish. We want to see support at the last low which was on July 7th.

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 August 9th.


We had the Primary cycle start date as March. This would put us entering the 20h week of the Primary cycle.

There is a possible change, that is June 21 may have been a Primary cycle low. The move out of that date sure looks like the start of a Primary cycle. This would put us in the 7th week.

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) last week. Crude has moved up aggressively. 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 but I’m looking for a move up over the next couple of months.

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.

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. Any expectations from crude oil? It's been consolidating in a tight range for a while now. Do you expect the eclipse to trigger a violent turn down in crude to retest the 38-41$ level in September? Thanks!

  3. The eclipse could trigger an unplanned event. With all the conflicts on the horizon I would expect crude to rise. Conflicts extend to the end of October at least.

  4. Any big reversal for DXY? Thanks

  5. I was looking for a rebound in the US buck but the events around North Korea potentially can distort a number of currencies and commodities. This would be true for crude as well. I'm waiting to see the results of the Solar Eclipse on August 21 and Saturn turning direct on August 25th.
