    The U.S. stock market fell to its major cycle trough on November 15, on concerns that the Republican tax reform proposal would not have enough support to be enacted. The DJIA fell 138 points on that day, prior to the House vote on the matter. But the House passed the measure for tax reform the next day, November 16, and the DJIA exploded nearly 200 points higher, while the NASDAQ Composite raced to a new all-time high. The next day, Friday, the DJIA was down 100 points again, and ended the week down 64 points. Congress will now take a break for Thanksgiving holiday (markets will be closed on Thursday, November 23), before returning for the Senate vote, expected the following week, just in time for the first of three passages of the Jupiter/Neptune trine on December 2 (weekend). As discussed in this column before, Jupiter and Neptune in a trine aspect is indicative of euphoria and “irrational exuberance,” to borrow a phrase coined many years ago by former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan. That is an aspect of infatuation, of thinking you are in love, of feeling like it is time to celebrate. But afterwards, reality strikes, you wake up the next day, and you have to deal with the hangover. Was it even “real?” What were we thinking?



    I am doubtful the Senate and the House will be able to reconcile an agreement and pass this tax reform bill before the Jupiter trine Neptune of December 2. And, if they don’t, this could spell trouble for the U.S. and other world stock markets into early 2018. If I am wrong and they do pass it, then for a while, it may seem like “Happy Days Are Here Again.” Until winter begins.

    The rally in stocks last week was not only a correlation to the Thanksgiving holiday season, but also related to the time of the year that the Sun enters the optimistic and hopeful sign of Sagittarius (November 20-December 21). It is probably even more positive than usual because on December 2, the first of three passages of a waning trine between Jupiter and Neptune will unfold. As stated last week, “Congress will now take a break for Thanksgiving holiday (markets will be closed on Thursday, November 23), before returning for the Senate vote, expected the following week, just in time for the first of three passages of the Jupiter/Neptune trine on December 2 (weekend). As discussed in this column before, Jupiter and Neptune in a trine aspect is indicative of euphoria and “irrational exuberance,” to borrow a phrase coined many years ago by former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan. That is an aspect of infatuation, of thinking you are in love, of feeling like it is time to celebrate. But afterwards, reality strikes, you wake up the next day, and you have to deal with the hangover. Was it even “real?” What were we thinking?”



    So, let us enjoy this euphoric time of the year and positive cosmic alignment while it lasts. However, don’t get too drunk on elation this week, because Congress comes back the following week, Jupiter begins to separate from Neptune, Mercury turns retrograde on the full moon of December 3, and then we start the charge towards the Sun/Saturn conjunction on the winter solstice. It may be a classic case of cosmic vertigo.

    previous instances, its first foray into a new sign does not last long. It retrogrades back into Aries, November 6, 2018 through March 6, 2019. It then re-enters Taurus, where it remains uninterrupted until July 7, 2025, when it makes its first ingress into Gemini. It is thus this period of March 6, 2019 through July 7, 2025, that we anticipate the boom/bust pattern to manifest in sectors of the economy ruled by Taurus. That would involve banks and cattle. That is, we anticipate the price of beef (cattle) and/or the stock price of banks will soar close to - or more than - 400% from March 2019 through the following 3-6 years, and then collapse, losing over 50% of its value, and perhaps close to 80%, prior to July 2025. If that indeed happens, then this information alone will cover your cost for this year’s Forecast Book, and all future editions of the Forecast Book for as long as I shall remain on Earth in this incarnation.

    This correlation also fits into our view of what will happen to world banks – central banks – over the course of the next 3-7 years. Uranus is the planet of disruption, revolution, and breaking away from tradition. Whatever has been the “norm” of central banks over the past 84 years is vulnerable to revolutionary change. By association, this could also have a huge impact on currencies, especially the US Dollar, which has served as the world standard currency since 1944, shortly after Uranus last passed through Taurus (and was in a square aspect with Saturn). This subject will be discussed in greater detail in the pages that follow, but the projection is that banks will thrive for the next couple of years, and then run into a wall.

    The banking rules/laws will change as Uranus will be in Taurus, and especially after Saturn enters in Aquarius after March 22, 2020, square to one another. Money could take on a new form, and be used for purposes we cannot conceive of today. The result of this transformation may be good for banking stocks at first, but then the drastic changes are apt to be met with hysteria, as bankers go “bonkers.” They may be unable to adapt to the unintended consequences of their experiments. Or they may develop a malady, known as “greed,” and/or “hoarding,” which afflicts some non-aware Taurus natives, or people engaged in Taurus-ruled enterprises, which doesn’t go well with an inability to adapt to suddenly changing circumstances. Banking stocks soar. Bankers do not get out at the top. Banking stocks then crash, and then the chickens come home to

    Shorter-term, the Dow Jones and S&P both made new all-time highs, last week, on December 4, the first trading days following the first passage of the Jupiter/Neptune trine. The euphoria of that aspect is now wearing off as stocks fell, and then started to recover some of their losses by the end of the week. Gold and Silver both plummeted after breaking important support. As forecasted in the new book, Gold is now headed to the 1200-1250 range. It has now entered that range. We will also analyze the outlook for Gold and Silver in detail in this week’s MMA Cycles Report, coming out Monday night. December is shaping up to be an important month for metals as Mars will enter Scorpio this weekend.

    Gold and Silver had a good week too. However, I think this has more to do with Mars in Scorpio kicking in. The new tax reform bill, plus the Fed’s promise to keep interest rate hikes gradual, are ingredients for an economy that could overheat, producing more inflation than expected. This would be consistent with the balsamic phase of Saturn and Pluto, as it moves from its waning semi-square in late 2014 to its conjunction in January 2020. You may remember the last time that happened, which was 1976-1982.

    But that doesn’t mean there will not be some corrections along the way, and those corrections can still be timed fairly well via geocosmic signatures. In fact, one of those possibilities may be unfolding right now. January 8-14 will find the Sun, Venus, and Pluto forming a sextile with transiting Mars and Jupiter, while also forming a square to Uranus. If Uranus wasn’t involved, we could be more confident that this would indicate a top in stocks and a sharp reversal down. It very well could, anyway. But with Uranus highlighted, the stock market could also continue to explode to new highs – higher than anyone thinks – for Uranus can just as often be a reversal of a sharp magnitude, as a breakout to new all-time highs, well above any resistance zone.



    This is all quite possibly bullish for metals too, especially now that Mars is in Scorpio. This planet/sign combination has a well-documented history with strong rallies in Gold, as already observed since it started in early December. The passage ends January 26, but the Mars-in-Scorpio high could come in before then. After an important pullback, however, Gold could go even higher, contrary to the outlook of many market analysts who see little reason to own Gold now that stocks are doing so well. They don’t always move in opposite directions – just when Jupiter is highlighted.

    Next week is notable for other geocosmic factors, known as ingresses, which is when planets leave one sign and enter another. These represent periods of change in the collective psychology, which can translate into changes in investor sentiment. For us, the most important ingress will be heliocentric Mercury entering Sagittarius, January 19-30, also coinciding with the end of geocentric Mars in Scorpio on January 26. Each of these planet/sign combinations have a strong historical association with large price moves in many markets, but especially with precious metals and currencies, and more often bullish than bearish. We have already witnessed the bullish impact in precious metals since Mars entered Scorpio on December 8. It will be interesting to see if Gold and Silver can continue rising after this month, after Mars leaves Scorpio and heliocentric Mercury leaves Sagittarius.

    The volatility in most financial markets last week – especially with currencies and metals was not unexpected, based on geocosmic principles. After all, it was the first week of heliocentric Mercury in Sagittarius, and the last week of geocentric Mars in Scorpio. Both of these planet-sign combinations have a well-documented historical correlation to strong rallies - and peaks – in Gold, and then a sharp selloff. After reaching 1365.40 early on Thursday morning – its highest price since August 2016 – it suddenly collapsed to 1341 that same day, right after Draghi’s response to Mnuchin “weak-dollar” interview. It was right in time, as Mars entered 29° Scorpio.



    Now Mars will enter Sagittarius for the next 7 weeks, which promises more volatility, and probably more new highs in world equity indices. In the USA, this will also correlate with huge inflows of monies pouring into mutual finds via the funding of retirement accounts during this year’s tax season. However, that may not be so bullish for Gold and other commodities, based on past instances of this planet-sign combination. Ironically enough, though, Mars in Sagittarius also has a correlation to major breakouts of hostilities in the Middle East, especially involving Israel. This may also account for its correlation to very large price moves in crude oil – both up and down.

    Here, one will find that today’s stationary transit of Uranus at 26 degrees of Aries, falls right on the NYSE natal Saturn, in opposition to the NYSE Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in 23-27 of Libra. That says it all. That describes exactly the picture of a market soaring to new all-time highs of the past two years, and then suddenly collapsing in record-breaking daily declines.



    The good news is that this transit ends shortly. The not so good news is that both the Saturn/Uranus and Jupiter/Neptune waning trines will end this August 2018, +/- 2 months. The eggs that the Golden Goose (Federal Reserve and other world central banks) has laid, have cracked. They will try to put it back together again, just as they did when a similar crack first happened in January 2008. It worked for a while then. But a few months later in 2008, there was a more serious crack that all the king’s men couldn’t put back together again. They had to create a new golden goose to lay new golden eggs, and they named her ZIRP. But ZIRP (Zero Interest Rate Policy) is mature now and not able to inspire such a comeback as was possible in those days right after her birth. Oh, she will probably have some sort of a comeback. But this time she has less arrows in her quiver to use to secure the fuel and food to support everyone (all the politicians) who depend upon her. And her weight (debt) continues to grow. Soon, she may even become a lame duck.

    So now what? That question is likely to be asked more and more in the days and weeks ahead, as Neptune and Pisces – the planet and sign pertaining to uncertainty and doubt – come into prominence. Keep in mind, these two geocosmic factors also pertain to crude oil and health care. On Saturday, February 17, Mars in Sagittarius will square Neptune. This is like an exaggerated threat based on false data, perhaps made by someone or some entity that is way out of its league. This is the same day that Mercury (information) enters Pisces (lack of clarity), and one day later, the Sun enters Pisces, followed by Venus (monies) conjunct Neptune on February 21. This climate of uncertainty, non-control, and non-accountability may linger until March 4-6, following the Sun/Neptune conjunction of March 4 and the ingress of both Mercury and Venus into Aries on March 6. Thus, the next two weeks could be a fight between the irrational exuberance and complacency of Pisces and Neptune, as the market continues to rally and people forget what just happened February 2-9, versus the forces of hysteria and panic if the market unleashes another serious swoon reminiscent of February 2-9. I am not sure which will dominate (how can anyone be sure with these dynamics in effect?), It is even possible that both themes will manifest in very quick succession of one another.

    The final Jupiter transit on the March 13 coincided with the end of the stock market rally associated with the Jupiter-heavy time band of March 1-13. Now we head into a new series of transits that have a historical correlation to reversals in many financial markets. The most notable will be Mercury turning retrograde on March 22, followed by Venus making a square to Pluto and conjunction to Uranus on March 23 and 28. Each of these has a 70-80% rate of frequency to 4% reversals in US stock indices within 4 trading days. The orb of influence of each theseoverlap March 22-28, too.

    By the early 1970’s American policy makers … severed the dollar’s link to Gold and allowed the greenback’s value to float relative to other currencies, in the hope that it would depreciate and smoothly reduce the trade deficit. The opposite happened. No longer bound by fixed exchange rates and dollar convertibility, the U.S. government’s fiscal discipline broke down. Federal debt … soon began rising steadily… If the U.S. has reached the end of its rope and is unwilling to feed the world’s demand for dollar through its trade deficit, then international monetary reform is the answer. It would put U.S. trade on a more level playing field, enforce fiscal discipline in Washington, and help millions of American workers. Sean Rushton, “Monetary Reform Would Rebalance Trade,” Wall Street Journal, March 29, 2018.



    Gold gets a bad rap in some history books because of its misuse during the 20th century. This ignores its peacetime record of high growth and nil inflation between 1834-1913 (when there was no USA central bank, no Federal Reserve) … Returning to the gold standard is a way for the president to deliver on his promise of American working class prosperity. Alex X. Mooney, “Steel and Aluminum? Let’s Talk About Gold,” Wall Street Journal, March 26, 2018.



    After this week’s full moon (March 31) and Mars conjunct Saturn (April 2), the cosmos swings back and forth between moments of agreement and hope, followed by moments of uncertainty and hesitancy to make commitments. Ideas sound good, as Venus trines Mars, Saturn, and Pluto, April 7-17. But promises waver as the Sun squares Uranus and Pluto, while Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto change directions, April 10-22. This pertains to matters of both love and money, with the latter showing up in stock market behavior. As tax season ends with the new moon and Mercury turning direct on April 15, attention starts to shift to new matters. After all, it is a New Moon in Aries, and both symbolize new beginnings. On top of that, heliocentric Mercury will enter Sagittarius April 17-27, and markets may start a new round of volatility then, especially in precious metals. So, in the true spirit of Aries initiative, let me take a stab at the direction I think the world geopolitical attention will shift towards.

    We also know that Taurus rules money, currencies, cryptocurrencies, and banks, which is why I have dubbed the 2018-2025 year as a period when “Bankers Go Bonkers.” First, they benefit immensely (profitably) from the turn to higher interest rates (part of the “Great Reset”). But then, before Uranus leaves Taurus, banks may be subject to a dramatic reversal and many may go bust. At the same time, the idea of changing world currency values gathers momentum, which may jeopardize the U.S. Dollar as the world’s standard currency exchange. Already, we see China de-pegging its currency value from the U.S. dollar, in favor of pegging it to Gold, which should tell you something about how I think the future of Gold will unfold.

    There is a very important geocosmic signature coming up this week, and already in effect. It is the Sun/Jupiter opposition on May 8. It has a 75% historical correlation to primary cycle tops or bottoms, and a 50% correlation to 50-week or greater crests or troughs, within an orb of ten trading days. It is possible that it was the triple bottom low in the DJIA on Thursday, May 3, which is just three trading days before this opposition. If not, we could see lower prices within the next two weeks to complete these cycles. It may also coincide with a reversal in crude oil.



    The following week will also be very important for 1) Uranus will enter Taurus on the new moon in Taurus on May 15, and 2) Mars will begins its 4-month square aspect to Uranus, May 18-September 18. This latter aspect promises to be filled with unexpected events and sudden market turns. It is not a very rational period. In fact, it tends more to the fanatical and bizarre, and maybe very exciting, like a wrestling match between robot and an alien.

    Peter I find these posts very interesting thank you. Have you tracked the predictions against actualities in any way?

    I'm a bit each way on astrology, but I'm inclined to, at the least, acknowledge the moon's pull on emotions and it's effect on human and animal behaviours, so an affect on market behaviour is easy to imagine.

    Within our usual intellectual framework its obviously bullshit.
    But unfortunately if studied it seems to work.
    Not the women weekly kind that most people see as astrology though.

    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. - Hamlet (1.5.167-8), ...
    This is a series of predictons that means you can judge for yourself if their something to it.
    I have and found it to often right,,also accounting for coincidence,and expectations.
    But it's up to each person alone to do.
    People already know everything,and are intellectually lazy.
    If it doesn't already fit into their present framework its wrong.
    We don't have to know how something could possibly work,for it to work.

    IChing prediction for PM in May 2018 is Hexagram #33 Tun/ Retreat.

    The tranquil Mountain towers overhead, yet remains this side of Heaven:
    The Superior Person avoids the petty and superficial by keeping shallow men at a distance, not in anger but with dignity.

    Such a retreat sweeps the path clear to Success.
    Occupy yourself with minute detail.

    Retreat in this instance is not a desperate flight in disarray, but a conscious choice to distance yourself from forces that would rob you of your peace.
    It is not a surrender, but a regrouping.
    Retreat from this conflict is actually an advance toward your own center.
    You move toward balance, and thus a much stronger position.

    babiesAnd you know what happened to stock prices in 1987. The DJIA made an all-time high in August of that year, then fell 40% by mid-October. Well, it is an interesting one-time correlation, and no guarantee it is a cycle related to markets. What is probably more important is what these shifts mean for the future. In my way of looking at the connection between cycles of human activity and the cosmos, these are indicators of “The Great Reset” that I have written about extensively over the past two years. These cycles started in November 2016, became official with the Sun/Saturn conjunction on the Winter solstice of December 20-21, 2017, and will grow in visibility and influence into at least 2020, and probably into February 2026, +/- 1 year, when Saturn and Neptune will cross over into Aries together. I anticipate that both of these trends – the diminishing importance of the U.S. Dollar and the decline of births in the USA – will continue into then, and result in a powerful shift in world affairs, especially in the world financial structure. It is also a reason to support the view that precious metals will become more and more important in terms of world currencies, perhaps along with new forms of currencies like cryptos. I keep in mind Silver’s 60-year crest cycle, due in 2040 +/- 5 years, probably along with Gold, which is a subject I will give a presentation on at the UAC conference in Chicago, May 27. I hope to see many of you there (see “Announcements” for details).



    Shorter-term, we are focused on the Jupiter trine Neptune on May 25, and the transit of Venus making a grand trine to the Jupiter/Neptune trine on June 1-2, as discussed in the earlier section of this column. Crude Oil and stock markets are most related to these signatures, but currencies and treasuries may be as well, which in turn could coincide with cycle reversals in precious metals. It promises to be a rather amazing two weeks, with plenty of good news coming out too, probably about potential summit meetings between North Korea and the USA, but also between European leaders, Russia, and the USA. It is a time to give peace a chance. Or, get married. Or, have babies.

    I used an online tarot site to tell me what is going on:

    Past - Sun
    You receive the support from others, the common decisions and the investments are in balance.

    Present - Hanged Man
    You will be forced to make a u turn, you will not be able to purchase everything you want and might need. It does not feel good at this moment, the future is ambiguous and risky. Don't spend the money right now, maybe save it.

    Future - Moon
    You're disoriented at this moment, don't make any audacious decisions. Don't overspend or act with passion. You may be trapped in a bad situation.


    Hmmm, pretty gloomy. Beware people!

    There is another important long-term aspect unfolding next week. On June 16, Uranus will form its third of five 45° semi-square aspects to Neptune, which is part of the second longest planetary pair cycle in the solar system (it is a 171-year cycle). Uranus in such a relationship to Neptune can correspond to natural calamities, like floods and tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. It can also correlate with cyber theft and espionage, and furthermore to psychotic breaks by “lone wolves” who lose their handle on reality and contemplate or commit life-threatening acts. Reality is questioned during this period, for Neptune itself will be turning retrograde. What you see and hear is probably not what is anywhere near reality or the truth (unless it is the ultimate spiritual truth). This is a magic act, or a sick trick of deception played on humanity, if we are naïve enough to believe whatever is told to us. How to handle this? The obvious antidote is to seek ultimate truth, and don’t settle for the pablum being reported by the press or world leaders. What a strange time for Mr. Trump and Kim Jung-un to meet for peace talks. Who is conning who these next two weeks?



    Well, as I am fond of telling my clients under such strange and unreliable signatures, hope and pray for the best, but be prepared for the worst. It may be a favorable time to go on a retreat.
