Gold/Silver: April 30/May 2 Ceres Cycles

The April 16 and 18 turn dates were both lows for gold and silver, which gave a minor high on the 22nd, and then rallied into the April 25/28 turn dates.

Ceres cycles have proven to be reliable medium term trend change indicators for the metals. There will be a gold heliocentric Ceres 36° cycle on April 30, and a silver heliocentric 72° cycle on May 2.

4/30/2013: Gold Heliocentric Ceres 36° Cycle
5/2/2013: Silver Heliocentric Ceres 72° Cycle

The metals are short term overbought and the recent plunge brought them close to important Fibonacci retracement levels ( 38.2% for gold, or ~1285; 61.8% for silver, or ~21.45) so this time period is a good candidate to see them dropping into these levels (likely breaching them briefly) and finding strong support there, at least for a while.

Notice how well silver honors its Fibonacci levels. Gold is similar.

If instead the metals are able to hang on to their recent gains through the Ceres cycles, the next candidate for a major bottom is May 5-7 when heliocentric Saturn opposes Mars and heliocentric Earth, Uranus and Jupiter form a (loose) Golden Triangle.

5/7/2013: Heliocentric Earth-Uranus-Saturn Golden Triangle and Gold Harmonics


 I did a quick study to illustrate the importance of the Ceres cycles, and to explore the effect of silver's Ceres cycles on gold and vice versa, since the metals are clearly impacted by each other.

In the following graphs, gold Ceres cycles are shown in yellow; silver in grey. Geocentric cycles are denoted with a "G" whereas heliocentric cycle are given by their harmonic value only.

The first set of Ceres cycles occurred August 25 (gold) and 27 (silver). This included a weekend, so the resulting turn date was the same for both, a high on the 27th.

In the second set, gold's cycle was November 27, and silver's was the 29th. In this case, gold's Ceres cycle gave the best turn date for gold, and silver's gave the best turn date for silver. After seeing this I assumed this would always be the case.

However, in the 3rd set, silver's cycle was on January 6, and gold's on the 9th. In this case silver's date gave the low for both.

In the final set, gold's cycle was on March 2, and silver's on the 6th. Both dates showed up similarly for gold, but gold's date was a better indicator for silver.

In conclusion, the Ceres cycle is clearly an important trend change indicator, but we should pay attention to both gold and silver's Ceres turn dates, because either one could provide the best date for either metal.

It appears that Brad Cowan's prediction 4 years ago in Pentagonal Time Cycle Theory for a major market event (Beast Cycle) in May 2013 is going to arrive right on schedule.

These market tops have typically been occurring as 3 peaks. If this top plays out the same way, it looks like we may have seen the first of the 3 peaks on April 11 at a Nasdaq geocentric Mars 72° cycle, and the second one forming now. The odds look good for this peak to occur near the potentially major turn window of April 28-29, discussed here, with the possibility that it completed today with the lunar eclipse. An important low occurred on April 18 (at the other potentially major time window of April 18-20) in between these 2 peaks.

If the markets do complete a second peak in the next few days, we should expect a drop back down to around the April 18 low near 1535-1540 SPX (or lower) before another final peak sometime around mid May.

Alternatively, the markets could continue their climb and give a first peak in May.

The equities turn dates for May are listed below. The clustered events are likely to represent a single turn.

Potentially major (cluster)
May 5: DOW Geocentric Ceres 36°
May 5: Nasdaq Geocentric Mars 18°
May 7: S&P Geocentric Sun Conjunct South Node 72°

Probably minor
May 10: Annular Solar Eclipse
May 10: Nasdaq Mars 18°
May 13: S&P Geocentric Mars conjunct South Node 72°
May 15: S&P Jupiter-Venus Conjunction 36°

Very Major (cluster)
May 20: Geocentric Uranus-Pluto Square; Sun enters Gemini
May 21: Beast Cycle (date may not be accurate)
May 21: S&P Geocentric Mars 72°

Probably minor
May 25: Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

Potentially Major (cluster)
May 28: Uranus, North Node,Jupiter/Venus Great Triangle 72° (Possible effect May 17 through June 2)
May 30: Nasdaq Geocentric Mars 36°
May 30: S&P Ceres 72°

The Beast Cycle date given above is just one possibility that has been discussed here and here. Cowan gives other possible dates in his book.

Regarding the May 20 Uranus-Pluto square, this will be the 3rd of 7 such geocentric squares in the 2012-2015 timeframe:

June 24, 2012
Sep 19, 2012
May 20, 2013
Nov 01, 2013
Apr 21, 2014
Dec 15, 2014
Mar 17, 2015

Richard Nolle warns:
The 2012-2015 squares are the first since the 1932-1934 series, which was waning with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Cancer (the confiscation of gold by Presidential decree, and consequent devaluation of the dollar following several years of financial panic). The prior series (1876-1877), a waxing square from Uranus in Leo to Pluto in Taurus, saw the establishment of the Reichsbank as central bank of a unified Germany after several years of financial panic there; and, in the US, the Department of the Treasury's Bureau of Engraving and Printing started printing all US currency (which had previously been printed by private bank note companies). 

There is also a heliocentric Uranus-Pluto square occurring November 24, 2013. An in depth article by Nick Anthony Fiorenza on this aspect and its impact on society can be found here.

I may add charts later if time permits.


I was just re-reading Cowan's chapter on the Beast cycle in Pentagonal Time Cycle Theory. What is noteworthy is that Mars crossed the heliocentric Aries 23° point on April 9 (noted here), which is the Mars point of the Beast cycle explained here. This occurred just 2 days from the important April 11 high.

Cowan stresses the importance of each planet interacting with the pentagram, even when they do not occur simultaneously. So that is what we had going on here. Earth crosses its Beast cycle point on April 19, and Venus on May 21. The Beast cycle interacts with more planets than I have described but I don't want to get into that here because it is explained in the book.

The Euro

The Euro was introduced at midnight, January 1, 1999. Here is the heliocentric natal chart. Jupiter is at 2°Ari 48'38", establishing the harmonics.

1/1/1999: Euro Heliocentric Natal
On April 17, 2013, geocentric Jupiter crossed a 72° harmonic point. Saturn crossed 72° 3 days later on the 20th. Both dates were important highs.

4/17/2013: Euro Geocentric Jupiter 72°.
Heliocentric Saturn will cross the same 72° point on May 17, 2013, which should result in another important trend change for the Euro.

5/17/2013: Euro Heliocentric Saturn 72°

Late April Turn Dates

Here are the remaining April turn dates for gold and silver.

April 16: Saturn-Venus Opp
April 18: Mars-Earth Opp
April 22: G Saturn-Venus Opp

April 25: G Uranus 72°  (Gold)
The date for the Uranus cycle above may not be accurate.

April 28: Saturn-Earth Conj

April 30: Ceres 36° (Gold)

Here are the remaining April turn dates for equities. 

Cluster of important events. Because they are clustered their significance is raised, and probably represent a single turn. Potentially major.
April 18: Nasdaq Mars-Sun Conj 72°
April 18: DOW G Mars 36°
April 19: Nasdaq G Jupiter-Saturn 144° apart @ 18°
April 20: Nasdaq G Ceres 72°

Probably minor
April 25: Partial Lunar Eclipse

Potentially major
April 28: S&P: G Venus Conj S Node 72°
April 29: Nasdaq G Jupiter 18°

Still no time for charts, sorry.

April 12: Pluto Turns Retrograde

Pluto turns retrograde April 12 near Nasdaq's 36° harmonic and gold/silver's 18°.

Still too busy to add charts, sorry.

April 9, April 11 Nasdaq Mars 72° Cycles

There are 2 Nasdaq Mars 72° cycles this week, April 9 (heliocentric) and April 11 (geocentric).

I am really busy lately so getting the charts out for these will have to wait.

April 4/11: Gold/Silver Jupiter Cycles

April 4 is a Jupiter 72° cycle for gold. Gold's last Jupiter cycle was February 24, 2012, a 36° cycle shown on the chart as a major high in this post (hard to read I know, sorry). We are pretty much on target for the gold roadmap posted last December.

4/4/2013: Gold Heliocentric Jupiter 72° Cycle
Silver's Jupiter 36° cycle is April 11. Chart will be added later.

The Jupiter cycles above are major turns. There are 2 other minor turn dates coming soon for the metals. April 5 is a heliocentric Mars-Venus conjunction and April 7 is the same conjunction in geocentric orientation. Charts will be added later.
