This week’s blog post will be a little shorter as we work on the September subscription report.

It appears the recent Primary cycle low was August 21st, the day of the Total Solar Eclipse. The energy of the eclipse of this ellipse is still being felt. First from Harvey, Irma and an 8.1 earthquake in Mexico. That evening Mercury, now moving direct, passed over the point of the Total Solar Eclipse on Sept 7th.
As mentioned before this eclipse was also on the fixed star of Regulus. You can find all the fixed stars in longitude on the blog under “Fixed Stars”.

We are now 4 weeks along. Note this Primary cycle low was not very deep. Price was below the 15 and 45 day sma and the 15 day dipped below the 45 day sma.

Assuming we start the Primary cycle with a 6 week cycle then we should expect the SP500 to turn down shortly. It could also wait until the 9 ½ week cycle.

Assuming the eclipse energy is still strong Venus will pass over the point of the Total Solar Eclipse on September 18th. Venus will be travelling fairly quickly and may have little effect but watch this closely early in the week.

In the case of Venus it will also be in waxing  trine Uranus on Sept 18th as well. We could be looking at a turn in this time frame. What’s coming up is a more powerful aspect, Jupiter in opposition to Uranus on September 28. This needs a fairly wide orb and we are, in effect, in the time window for this powerful opposition now. This aspect has a history of occurring close to crests and troughs in the Primary cycle. In this case I would be looking for a crest as we are
4 weeks along the new 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.
I had also mentioned that this timeframe may affect Israel and possibly other countries. North Korea is still active and may be for some time. Watch October 7 - 11 for actions that may have longer term consequences.

The meaning of the Jupiter / Uranus opposition is in the subscribers report. For our purposes here this can be a surprise event. That day, Sept 28 also has Pluto turning Direct, a signature for powerful reversals in the US markets.
The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the Geocentric Bradley indicator (thick red line). It indicated a change in trend on September 8. Watch this closely. The next potential Bradley turn dates are Sept 18 and Sept 25th. Look for surprise events.

The following daily chart of the SP500 shows the 55 td cycle (vertical blue lines). Note the last few hits have been at lows although we seem to be running out of time as the next exact hit is Sept 20th. This cycle can appear at tops and triggers a reversal down.

Uranus will be semi square Neptune from mid-July through October. The last exact date will be October 7th. 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. Among other things Neptune stands for water. Look for rain storms through October. Neptune also rules drugs and potentially poisons. Mars opposing Neptune on Sept 24 would be a potential sign of poisons used in conflicts.
From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Uranus / Neptune
Suddenly incapacitated, unconsciousness, Checkmated, Crisis, Revolution, Dead Persons.
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. Saturn Direct also has a history of occurring near a 50 week cycle. See the blue squares for Saturn direct.

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. Saturn / Uranus is coming up in November.
From “The Book of Rules” aka “Rule for Planetary-Picture’s.
Saturn / Uranus
Quarrels, sudden separation,
The following weekly chart of the SP500 shows the 5 month (blue) and 10 month (red). The 5 month cycle was September 4. The 5-month cycle often is at the start of a slide down.

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, July14th and Aug 29 were big range days.
The next hits are Sept 29 then Oct 16.
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 PriceLine. Note how it has been strong resistance to price but just broke through.

Gold put in an impressive rally into Sept. 8th.
July 7th was the Primary cycle low and we are 10 weeks along. Remember the 6 week and 9 ½ week are typical cycle lengths for cycles in Gold. Sept 8th was the nominal 9 ½  week crest. We now wait for a further pullback or reversal up. A key timeframe will be around Sept 28th. This is the Jupiter / Uranus opposition and also Pluto turning Direct. The latter has a strong history of turns in Gold.
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 had gone sideways at the 23.6% retracement.
I’m looking for Gold to put in a trough and then move up in 1 to 2  weeks.

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

I was looking at precious metals being the potential trade of the year but there will be pullbacks. This may be delayed.
The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The last one being on September 5th. nnd the next October 2nd.

The red lines headed up are the Mars pricelines. Watch the Mars Price Line to see if it acts as support / resistance. Note price closed below the Mars price line on Sept 8th.

Oct 15, 16 and two other dates to watch for a turn in Gold.

A point on “27” and many other numbers. If you look at Astrology long enough you will see the same numbers popping up repeatedly.

The North Node takes 18.73 years for one orbit
18.73 * 12 = 224 This is the length of one Venus orbit.
Sqrt of 5 = 224

The orbit of Venus is 224 days.

18 years = 216 months
216 / 2 =108

108 / 4 = 27 27 is the rotation of the Sun at the Sun’s equator.
27 days is also the orbit of the Moon. Also it takes 27 days for the Moon to rotate once.

There are many numbers that appear and reappear as we work along.
We are looking at June 21st as being the trough of the Primary cycle.  The move out of that date  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. Note how price stopped on August 1 and August 31, right on the average longitude. See again on Sept 14.
The horizontal red lines are the Fibonacci retracement from Nov 14, 2016 to Feb 21, 2017.
Crude, gasoline and other byproducts are going to be affected by the results from Harvey and Irma. Gasoline and other products have prices up and chemical plants have been affected.
Any move close to 46.00 should be a buy.
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. Watch the period around September 28 where Jupiter aspects both Neptune and Uranus. Venus opposes Neptune in the same time frame.

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. I’ve mentioned before the 11th of each month can be a move in crude or crude equities.
This was not as large a move as I was expecting.

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, then starts moving forward.
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. The NYT is reporting a rare Lunar occultation of the Moon, Venus, Mars and Mercury on September 18th. The last time this occurred was in March 2008. All in sign of Leo. It looks bearish looking at the previous occurrence.
