I am only going to talk about 3 dates for August.
This is the Armstrong turn date that brought about his warning that I addressed here. It is also 4 days after a complete Armstrong PI cycle (PI*1000 days) from the devastating Indonesia quake and tsunami, and we are in a period of potential disasters, as discussed in the linked post.
On the 8th, geocentric Jupiter is at exact opposition to Pluto squaring Uranus, a configuration highlighted in this post.

So this could be an important time, but I do not think it will be a major turn date for equities.
Geocentric Neptune is at the DOW's 18° harmonic, while Jupiter is at 36°.

August 17 is a heliocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunction. This is an event we have been focusing on since almost the beginning of this blog and has been discussed in many posts. Venus often gives improved timing, and it crosses 72° the following day.

In addition, on the 18th the Moon's Nodes are at the Nasdaq's 18° harmonic, and there is a geocentric Sun-Ceres conjunction.

The August 17 heliocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunction will be the 3rd since the March 6, 2009 major bottom, and the completion of the cycle of Mars hitting all 5 points of the Nasdaq's pentagram in 144° movements, a concept described in Cowan's Pentagonal Time Cycle Theory. Each 144° movement alternates as a conjunction or opposition to Jupiter. In the book, Cowan identifies the conjunction on this date as being associated with the 13 year Beast Cycle.

Thanks to Jay's great work, we have confirmation using several different methods that August 16-20 is likely the top. See here and here.
We can also use the pattern inversion method on many time scales to see that this rally is ending. (Some of these have been shown before in recent posts.)
First the 81 year rally since 1932.
The same characteristics apply to the 2-year sub-rally that has taken place since the 2011 low. Each time we zoom in we can see a little more detail of what to expect. The blow-off top rally we are in is a little better defined here. The August and October 2011 double bottom inverts to an approximate August and October double top.
Finally, if the July 27 low holds, using inversion we can project an approximate price target for the August high. (Rough target only.)
In a final note, and to go a little off topic, I want to show that geocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunctions are so important that the Royal Couple got married at one (the 2011 conjunction was actually 2 days later on May 1)...
