September Gold/Silver Turn Dates

Gold and silver bottomed when Venus and Mercury joined the Uranus-Pluto square on August 21, both planets reinforcing the 1272.5-1274 Pluto-Uranus major support area. If there is going to be a re-test of these recent lows in metals it may come sometime this week as Mars and the Sun form a Golden Triangle with Uranus and then the South Node. On the 10th Venus opposes Neptune; any interactions with Neptune are important to the metals.

I showed this image earlier on Twitter which illustrates that most of gold's major lows occur at Uranus support. Of the 7 major lows since the 2011 high, 5 have reversed almost precisely at Uranus support. Uranus is currently giving support at 1274, and if that is lost the next Uranus support level is 1244. Resistance is 1304. Node support is currently 1280 and 1250. Resistance is 1310. Neptune is giving resistance at 1296 and has support at 1266.

Gold Futures Major Lows

I am expecting a major reversal at this time because of the August 29 Neptune-Earth conjunction, a long term trend change indicator.

Gold Futures and Neptune-Earth Conjunctions

Later this month Mars conjuncts Pluto square Uranus, and on the 22nd Pluto turns Direct coinciding with gold and silver Ceres cycles, a very reliable medium term turn indicator.

Israel, Part I

Events in Israel have been heating up so it's time to delve into this topic which I have been studying for a couple of years. We will look at this from both a planetary and an eschatological standpoint. The events that are about to unfold are extremely important.

The Balfour Declaration, which established the intent to create a Jewish homeland, took place November 2, 1917. We will use this as a natal date.
11/2/1917: Balfour Declaration

It is Neptune that we are interested in, located at 5°Leo12'09". This gives rise to an approximate 100 year complete cycle very much like that of the U.S. dollar. Similar to the dollar we are focusing on Neptune, except that the dollar cycle is based on the Neptune-Jupiter synodic cycle, while for Israel we will be looking at Neptune's harmonics alone. Also similar to the dollar, there is a clear midpoint that validates that we are looking at the right thing.

Using Neptune's position at the Balfour Declaration, the harmonics look like this:
11/2/1917: Balfour Declaration Natal

Israel's territory was expanded with the U.N. Partition Plan, November 29, 1947. The Moon's Nodes were are major harmonics at this time. Neptune is near 72° and Uranus is near 36°.
11/29/1947: U.N. Partition Plan
Territory Expansion Due to U.N. Partition Plan

Recall that the midpoint for the dollar cycle was when Neptune had traveled 108° (72° + 36°) from its natal position with Jupiter at opposition. This occurred in 1964, the last year that silver was used in U.S. coinage.

Neptune reached 108° from the Balfour Declaration natal June 20, 1967. This is what we will consider to be the "midpoint" of this cycle, which we will refer back to later.
6/20/1967: Neptune 36°

This was just days after the Six-Day War, June 5-10, 1967, remarkable because Neptune can be off by several months as a timer. Note that Jupiter is near 72°. Israel's borders expanded further as a result of this war.
Territory Expansion Due to Six-Day War

On October 6, 1973, Egypt launched the Yom Kippur War in an attempt to re-capture the Sinai Peninsula. Saturn was at 36°.
10/6/1973: Yom Kippur War

Israel later gave up the Sinai Peninsula with the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty, when Saturn had traveled 72° further.
3/26/1979: Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty

The recent escalation of violence between the Israelis and Palestinians began with the kidnapping and murder of 3 Israeli teenagers on June 12, 2014. This occurred very close to our key Double Pentagram date of June 14 discussed here and here, which ties to the recent rise in metals prices.

The Balfour Declaration pentagram we are using is almost identical to the S&P's pentagram, and we saw in the previous post that August is an important time for the S&P. Saturn will cross the Balfour Declaration's 36° harmonic on August 21, although the August 14 Saturn-Ceres conjunction may be more important. Jupiter will reach 72° on September 3. So we may see some type of crescendo for this conflict in the next few weeks.
8/21/14: Saturn 36° Cycle

Another time to watch is around June, 2015 when Uranus crosses 36° (timing may not be accurate).
6/14/2015: Uranus 36° Cycle

Or December 1, 2015 when there is a Jupiter-Mars conjunction at 36° opposite Neptune.
12/1/2015: Jupiter-Mars Conjunction at 36° Opposite Neptune

The crucial event we are looking for is Neptune reaching 72°, another 108° from the Six-Day War. This occurs in December, 2016 (timing may be off by many months). Near this time we should see an event of at least the level of importance of the Six-Day War, and possibly much more significant. Another drastic change to Israel's borders is likely.
12/7/2016: Neptune 72° Cycle

Jupiter and Saturn generally act as better timing tools so this powerful signature may trigger early on one of the dates listed above or perhaps not until Jupiter reaches 72° in March 2017 or Saturn reaches 72° in November 2017.

Once again, it is the confluence of major planetary signatures occurring during this timeframe that increases the significance of the events that will unfold.

There is much more to say on this, which will be continued in a separate post.

August Equities Turn Dates

August appears to be an important month for equities with several major planets crossing the S&P's major harmonics. Heliocentric Saturn and Ceres cross 36° (coming into conjunction near this harmonic), geocentric Jupiter and heliocentric Mars cross 72°. Heliocentric Jupiter will cross 72° in early September. The confluence of these events adds importance to this timeframe. The graph below shows Saturn crossing 36° on August 28 with Jupiter, Ceres and Mars all near major harmonics.

August Gold/Silver Turn Dates

Metals have spent most of July so far consolidating the gains from the early June major low near the June 7 gold Jupiter cycle discussed here. We may see more pull-back before continuing higher but it is likely that June was a multi-year low as all major planets have crossed the major harmonics. August turn dates are given below. The Neptune-Earth conjunction on August 29 is probably the most important turn date. This aspect occurs at nearly the same date every year and since 2011 has given reliable major turns (2011 high; 2012 triangle apex low; 2013 high).

July Gold/Silver Turn Dates

Gold bottomed on June 3 and made a double bottom June 5, 2 days before the heliocentric Jupiter cycle. (See here for June turn dates.) It rallied into the June 14 (Saturday) silver heliocentric Jupiter cycle and double pentagram, which was confusing because I was expecting a LOW to match gold's major low. This made me question whether June would hold as a multi-month low. Then it made a sharp high on Monday followed by a sharp low Tuesday, and resumed an even stronger uptrend. Breaking the 150 DMA it became clear (in retrospect) that the silver cycle was in fact a LOW that came 1 day late on Tuesday (nominally would have been Friday or Monday). Gold then rallied into the Uranus-Venus conjunction on the 24th which has so far held as a high.

Jupiter cycles typically mark multi-month lows (see graph here), and this one was reinforced by the double pentagram, a much stronger signal, so it is highly likely that a multi-year low is in place. The more important the planetary signal, the harder the date is to pinpoint. The double pentagram occurred 8 trading days after the major low (if it holds), not bad for a multi-year signal. This low was a higher low than the December 31 low (Saturn cycle), which is fine. The most important low (or high) from a planetary standpoint is not necessarily the lowest low (or high) as shown several times in Cowan's book.

Furthermore, the new Islamic bogey man ISIS began making headline news at the time of the double pentagram.

The major gold December 31, 2013 low (double bottom with June 28, 2013) reinforces the idea given here, here and elsewhere that entering the year 2014 was a major economic shift and time marker leading to important (not just financial) future events.

The effect of the most important planetary turn dates of 2014 so far are shown below.
Gold Major Turn Dates for 2014
 There were Neptune and Uranus cycles in December, January, and February, which have not proven useful for pinpointing timing although they do indicate we are near a multi-year reversal. The long term gold chart shows the effect of Neptune. The 1980 double top was within 3 weeks of the geocentric and heliocentric 72° cycles. The 36° cycles were in 1997, although 2 years from gold's low, it was a major low year for silver.
Gold Long Term Chart and Neptune Cycles
The most recent gold Neptune cycles are shown below.
Gold Futures and Neptune Cycles
Silver's long term chart is shown with silver's Neptune cycles below.

Silver Long Term Chart and Neptune Cycles
Looking at the heliocentric chart, with the gold pentagram in yellow and silver in grey, we can see that all major planets have now crossed the major harmonic points, leaving no future opportunity from this point of view to cause another multi-month trend change for many months, or multi-year trend change for many years. (Pluto is also past the 18° harmonic point.)
6/29/2014 Heliocentric Gold/Silver Pentagrams
In the geocentric view, all major planets except Jupiter have passed the major harmonics.
6/29/2014 Geocentric Gold/Silver Pentagrams

Geocentric Jupiter will cross the gold 36° harmonic on July 7 and the corresponding silver 72° harmonic July 9, at which time all major planets will be past the major harmonic points.

Saturn is in retrograde but will not reach the major harmonic point before it reverses to direct July 20; Neptune is also in retrograde but will also not reach the major harmonic point before it reverses to direct November 16. Pluto is also retrograde and turns direct September 22 very close to but without crossing 18°. (Because these reversals occur very close to major harmonics these are potential major reversal dates.) Note also that Uranus goes retrograde July 21 and then direct December 21 without crossing (but while close to) a major harmonic.

The Moon's Nodes also give major reversals. The last 36°/72° crossing occurred in June 2013 (both gold and silver), a major low for the metals. The last 18° crossing occurred in March (silver) and May (gold) this year, important highs (see graph above). The next 36°/72° crossings will occur in early 2015.

In conclusion, the opportunity for the planets to cause a multi-year reversal is almost certainly behind us with both heliocentric and geocentric Neptune, Uranus and Saturn as well as heliocentric Jupiter now on the other side of their major harmonic points, and with geocentric Jupiter about to cross this point in the next couple of weeks.

My guess is that the metals will pull back into one of the geocentric Jupiter cycles before resuming their rally. There is a near triple conjunction of Mars, Ceres and the North Node square the Sun and Jupiter on the 12-14th coinciding with a Ceres cycle which could also be important. Uranus is very important to metals and turns retrograde on the 21st, the day after Saturn turns direct.

The Earth-Pluto Cycle

I have been studying the long term gold chart to determine other causes of multi-month reversals. First let's review from this post the affects of Jupiter and Saturn (heliocentric shown). This chart does not show the June 7, 2014 Jupiter 36° cycle low.

Gold Futures and Jupiter/Saturn Harmonics
I was curious about the cause of what looks to be a 6 month cycle occurring in late June and late December. I believe this cycle is caused by Earth-Pluto conjunctions and oppositions. These aspects appear to be increasing in significance especially since June, 2011, probably because of the Uranus-Pluto square which began in June, 2012 and continues through March, 2015. In recent years these aspects are as important as Jupiter and Saturn in determining major turnsJuly 4 was a conjunction, likely to be near a significant high.

Gold Futures and Earth-Pluto Conjunctions (White) and Oppositions (Orange)
So we are at an important juncture bounded by the June heliocentric Jupiter low of 1240 (and expected July geocentric Jupiter low) and the recent 1335 high. The failure of geocentric Jupiter to hold price could mean a re-test of 1200.

June Equities Turn Dates

The markets continue to make marginally higher highs but have not made large gains since the 2013 highs. I believe 2014 is a topping year which could extend to early 2015.

The solstices are increasing in importance, as they were close to the 2013 summer low and winter high. This year the summer solstice may be near a summer high, also being close to the previously discussed double pentagram in mid-June.

Ceres made a 5th return to the DOW's natal chart on May 12, and a new high (possible top) was made the next day at 16736. The DOW is hitting major price resistance created by 10 x the orbital period of Ceres of 1680 days, or 16,800 points.

The DOW's 2000 high of 11749 was close to 7 x the Ceres orbital period, or 11760. The 2009 low of 6461 was close to 4 x the Ceres orbital period, or 6720 and 10 x the Mars orbital period, or 6870. Prices traded in these ranges for only a few days.

June Gold/Silver Turn Dates

Gold spent most of May in a tightening triangle, finally breaking to the downside after Memorial Day.

There is a Jupiter 36° cycle on June 7 (a Saturday), which couples with Neptune turning retrograde the following Monday.

Jupiter and Saturn cycles give reliable multi-month turns for gold. With the break down from gold's triangle the likelihood is that a major low will be formed in June.

Gold Futures and Jupiter/Saturn Harmonics

The corresponding silver Jupiter 72° cycle (7 x natal return) occurs a week later on June 14, at the same time that a stunning nearly complete double pentagram is formed by 8 planets: Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Sun, Venus, previously discussed here. The Moon adds to the pentagram on June 15. Below is an overlay of the geocentric and heliocentric views on June 15, showing that 9 of the 10 double pentagram points are occupied. Gold's pentagram is shown in yellow, silver's in grey. (The Ascendant occupies the missing 10th point at 7:25am on the 15th.)

6/15/2014: 9 Planets Form Near-Complete Double Pentagram

The above configuration may impact multiple asset classes including the dollar and major indexes. Gold and silver turn dates are generally interchangeable, and because of the increased importance of the double pentagram, the 14th may be more important to gold than the 9th.

Adding to this, there is a geocentric Saturn-Venus opposition on the 13th and a heliocentric Mars-Saturn conjunction on the 14th.

Furthermore, June 16 will be exactly 3 Mars orbits from the October 2008 major gold low. (June 20 is 3 Mars orbits from the October 2008 silver low.) Gold reached a low of $681 in 2008, very close to the number of days in 1 Mars orbit (687 days). (Thanks to reader Chris for pointing out to me the importance of planetary orbital periods in price analysis.)

June gold/silver turn dates are given below.

June 1: Ceres turns direct

June 7: Gold Jupiter 36°
June 7: Geocentric Mercury turns retrograde
June 9: Geocentric Neptune turns retrograde

June 12-15: Double Pentagram involving 9 planets
June 13: Geocentric Saturn-Venus Opposition
June 14: Silver Jupiter 72° Natal Return
June 14: Mars-Saturn Conjunction

June 24: Uranus-Venus Conjunction
June 25: Geocentric Uranus-Mars Opposition Square Pluto

Gold and silver will have geocentric Jupiter 36°/72° harmonic crossings in early July.

May Equities Turn Dates

SPX topped 2 days after the Uranus-Sun conjunction and then dropped, reversing back up when Pluto turned retrograde, and then rose until Uranus, Pluto, Jupiter and Mars made a completed square on the 22nd (futures made a high 2 days later). See this post for April predictions.

We have a small pull back but it looks like there will be another test of the highs around May 1 as the Moon's nodes cross the DOW's 72°/36° harmonics.

5/1/2014: Moon's Nodes Cross DOW Major Harmonics
The nodes tend to give reliable major turn signals. For example, it was the January 1st 2014 crossing of the S&P's 18° harmonics that caused the DOW major high at that time, mentioned here. Gold and silver made major highs when the nodes crossed silver's 18° harmonics on March 16, mentioned here. In both cases, only minor harmonics were involved, but the result was a major turn because of the importance of the Moon's nodes. On May 1, major harmonics will be involved, and since the general trend has been up, it should indicate a major high near this time.

In late May, geocentric Ceres replaces Mars in making a complete square with Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter, at the same time that Jupiter is trine Saturn.
