Financial Astrology - July 16, 2018

Our posts are now reported on the highly regarded


The counts have not been very good lately. This will be short.

A note to all. Don't trade what you can't afford to lose.

We would have been entering the 22nd week of a Primary cycle which started on Feb 9, 2018.

We could also be entering the 3rd week of a new Primary cycle which started June 28. This is just 2 days away from Mars retrograde date. With the strong move I’m changing my outlook to place us entering the 3rd week of a new Primary cycle. This is not yet confirmed. The first 6 week cycle of a new Primary cycle often sees a pull back in the 2 - 4 week timeframe.

In July there will be 3 powerful eclipses

July 12                        Solar Partial Eclipse
                                     Pakistan - 120 killed in the run up to elections.

July 27                        Total Lunar Eclipse
                                      The days around this eclipse should be violent and upsetting.
                                      Mars will be conjunct the South Node and therefore opposing the North                                                Node. August 1st has Mars squared Uranus, possibly explosive.

Aug 11                        Solar Partial Eclipse.

The Primary Cycles

Price has moved above the 15 day sma and still above the 45 day sma. The 15 day sma is above the 45 day sma but close. The averages may be moving up.

On a shorter term basis I track a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle which will be due July 16th.
The 27 cd cycle are the red vertical lines. 

The blue squares on the chart show the Mars / Uranus squares. The last blue square was exact on May 16th and due to retrograde motion will be exact again on August 1, 2018 then Sept 18, 2018. The one black square is the semi-square of Uranus and Neptune, a long term signature.

The 9 month cycle

The above chart shows the 9 month or 39 week cycle (blue vertical lines). It was due and appears to have formed in late January. The 20 week cycle was added as well (red vertical lines). Any green lines are a combination of the 20 and 40 week cycles.

From the last few posts:
“This coming year could see an increase in geophysical activity, both earthquakes and volcanos.”

Following are the significant earthquakes (> 6.0) so far in January 2018.
Jan 23             Alaska                         7.9
Jan 10             Honduras                    7.5
Jan 14             Peru                            7.1
Jan 19             Mexico                        6.3
Jan 21             Chile                            6.3
Jan 25             Russia                         6.2

Feb 16             Mexico                        7.2
Feb 25             Papua New Guinea    7.5

Mar 6               Papua New Guinea    6.7
Mar 8               Papua New Guinea    6.8
Mar 24             Papua New Guinea    6.3
Mar 24             Southeast Indian Ridge 6.3
Mar 25             Indonesia                     6.4
Mar 26             Papua New Guinea    6.6
Mar 29             Papua New Guinea    6.9

Apr 2               Bolivia                         6.8
Apr 7               Papua New Guinea    6.3
Apr 10             Chile                            6.2
Apr 19             Prince Edward Island 6.0

May 5              Tajikistan                     6.2
May 5              Papua New Guinea    6.0

There has been a number of volcano’s erupting as well. Japan and Hawaii.

On a longer term basis the following monthly chart of the DJIA  shows the 15 year cycle (red vertical lines) and the 45 year cycle (blue lines). The 15 year is due now, the 45 year due in Sept 2019. This is another example of a longer term cycle possibly distorting shorter term cycles. Bear in mind they need a broad orb.

The above combination, with Saturn in Capricorn, could be defining problems / restrictions for the general population, particularly the mature population (pensions?) and with the Sun could affect the President or other leaders. This combination could affect a number of years in the future as Saturn is in a sign for approx. 2 ½ years. Other conditions this may highlight are State funerals, public sorrow and disappointment in general. State assets could be affected as well as industries connected to metals and mining.

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).

The 2nd last hit was March 29, 2018 and was a big range day. The last on June 27 was a big range day.

The next dates are August 10th then Sept 25th. I have added 3 price lines to this chart.

-       Saturn – black
-       Uranus – purple
-       Neptune - light blue

Note, on May 14 price moved up and was stopped at the Neptune price line (light blue).
Note the date, Feb 9th, 2018 was the day of the low and a big range day. Note the recent dates. The Neptune Price Line (light blue) is acting as resistance.

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.

Price has recently found resistance on the black Saturn price line.

Notice price just broke through the Saturn price line (the dark brown line). This may act as resistance so watch for this.
The following daily chart of the SP500 shows 2 Envelope channels. Red is the centered 
20 week envelope channel. Blue is the centered 40 week envelope channel. The dark blue squares are the Sun / Neptune square which is often a short term change in trend. See the Sun / Neptune square is June 7, 2018.

We have had this noted it was due for a sell. The selling may have started.

We are entering the difficult time mentioned over the last few months.

From :The Book of Rules” circa 1928 
for Uranus / Neptune aspects.
Suddenly incapacitated, unconsciousness. Checkmated. Transition into the beyond. Crisis, dead persons. Revolution. Watch for lies and disagreements.


Gold’s move lower four weeks ago was a surprise was driven by the decision of the EU to keep interest rates at lows into next year and EU quantitative easing will end his year.

The above gave a boost to the US$ and the drop in precious metals was a result of it being largely priced in US$. Just a note; China and Russia continue their hoarding of Gold.

Gold had started a new Primary cycle on December 12.  From December 12 we are entering the 31st week of a Primary cycle. We may have just seen a Primary cycle trough on July 3rd or 
July 13th. Confirmation is required. We do not want to see lower lows.

On occasion the Primary cycle can expand away from it’s more normal 18 week length. This looks like one of them. I’m looking for astrological aspects which have a history of changing the trend for Gold. Mars turning retrograde on June 26th may be astrological aspect which turns Gold. The chart has Gold looking to put in a Primary cycle low.

Gold is being affected by movement in the US$ and the Euro.

Seasonally Gold is usually flat over the early summer months with a history of moving up starting in August.

The blue vertical lines are the 40 trading day cycle which hits July 6th.

Price is below the 15 sma and the 45 day sma. The 15 sma and 45 day sma have crossed and appeared to roll over.

The darker blue candlesticks show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. This is often a time of volatility and changes in trend for Gold. This starts on July 13. In July 21 heliocentric Venus enters Sagittarius. Both these signatures often appears when Gold price is volatile and changes trend are often..

The following chart shows two daily envelope channels like the chart for the SP500 above. The blue squares are the Sun square Neptune which often results in a short term change in trend. We should be getting close to a buy.

The following chart shows a 27 cd (calendar day) cycle (blue vertical lines). The next being July 26, 2018. The Moon takes 27 days to orbit the Earth and the Sun takes 27 days to revolve once at the Sun’s equator.

The red lines headed up are the Mars price lines. Gold has been moving sideways since January 2018 and have found both resistance and support at the Mars price line. The darker red Mars lines are the main aspect. Moving below the dark red Mars price line was bearish now we need to move above the darker red Mars price line. It may hit resistance. Price did not go through the next Mars price line. Three weeks ago it bounced off the Mars price line.

The small x’s on the chart show when heliocentric Mercury is in Sagittarius. We often see changes in trend in Gold.

Looking at this whole chart it is based on a 24 harmonic. If you count each line from one darker red line to the next you will find there are 15 of them. 15 * 24 degrees = 360 degrees. Note price went down to Dec 12 where it bounced off a Mars Price Line.

We will come back to the Gold Mars Signs in a few weeks.


We were looking at February 9th as being the trough of the Primary cycle. We are entering the 22nd week or we have just put in Primary low on June 18th and we are about to continue up. We would be entering the 4th week of a new Primary cycle. I think we are 4 weeks along and in a new Primary cycle. It’s due for a pullback. Remember what I said about new Primary cycles. There is often a pullback in the first 2 to 4 week range. We may be seeing this pullback in crude.

I’m leaning to June 18 being the trough of the Primary Cycle. This was also the date Neptune turned retrograde. Neptune and Jupiter rule crude. July 5 had the Sun trine Jupiter, another aspect affecting crude.

Crude price had moved above both the 45 day sma and 15  day sma but made a move down starting on July 11th   and is now below the 15 dma.

There are many issues with Crude. The new Shanghai crude exchanged opened on March 26. This should have a negative effect of the Petrodollar (US Dollar) and possibly cause the US to lose it’s status as the world’s reserve currency. Watch this over the next few weeks / months. As Crude is sold in Yuan, purchasers are given the option to exchange Yuan to Gold. Yes there is a relatively new Gold exchange as well. They sell physical Gold rather than paper Gold as is often the case in the US. 

Crude started up on June 18 when Neptune turned retrograde.

Note how price often follows the Sun price line up and often stops and reverses at the Pluto price line. ee the chart below. We often get big range days when the two lines cross, like October 27th.and Nov 22 The next day would be July 24th.

  2. Gold is going down again. So bottom?

  3. The seasonal low in Gold is often in late July / August.

    The cycle count is hard to pin down at the moment.

  4. How about the S&P500? It is to go short?
