Equities August Turn dates

The markets rallied into the July 22 geocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunction, with the S&P topping on the 23rd. There was a minor pull-back into the July 25 Saturn 18° cycle and a slightly further correction on the 26th. Turn dates are (with a few exceptions) +/- 1 day so this all fits. The daily candles are giving bullish signals so this correction is probably finished and the rally ready to continue. Such a minor correction is consistent with our expectation of a blow-off top occurring.

I am only going to talk about 3 dates for August.

August 7

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.
8/8/2013: Geocentric Jupiter Opposite Pluto Square Uranus

So this could be an important time, but I do not think it will be a major turn date for equities.

August 12

Geocentric Neptune is at the DOW's 18° harmonic, while Jupiter is at 36°.

8/12/2013: DOW Geocentric Neptune 18° and Jupiter 36° cycles
This could give a turn but probably not the most important one for August.

August 17-18

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.
8/17/2013: Jupiter-Mars Conjunction at Nasdaq's 72° Harmonic

In addition, on the 18th the Moon's Nodes are at the Nasdaq's 18° harmonic, and there is a geocentric Sun-Ceres conjunction.
8/18/13: Geocentric Moon's Nodes at Nasdaq's 18°; 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.
DOW Futures and Jupiter-Mars Conjunctions
(Geocentric) Jupiter is now squaring Uranus, one of the major conditions identified earlier for the top to take place.

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.

Next the 4 year rally since 2009. In this chart I show a little more of the projection than I have in the past. This is to show that there should be another peak coming up in a few months, peak 11. The time difference between peaks 10 and 11 is about 3 1/2 months but can be used only as a very rough approximation.


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)...
April 29, 2011: Royal Wedding
...and had a baby at one (date exact).
July 22, 2013: Birth of Prince George of Cambridge
This is an "as above so below" fractal of a much more important cycle that I will talk about more later.

Silver/Gold August Turn Dates

June 28 gave a major low caused by the Neptune-Venus opposition 2 days earlier. This is one of the major turn indicators highlighted in this post. The geocentric Neptune-Venus opposition today (July 26) appears to also be giving a low with silver hitting the bottom of its trend channel.

The August turn dates for gold and silver are given below.

August 1: Silver Geocentric Neptune 72° (Date may be off by several days.)

August 7: Saturn-Venus Conjunction
August 10: Gold G Jupiter 18°
August 13: Silver G Jupiter 18°

August 17: Jupiter-Mars Conjunction
August 18: G Sun-Ceres Conjunction
August 19: Gold Uranus 72°
August 24: Gold Geocentric Neptune 36°, Mars, Venus Golden Triangle
August 26: Neptune-Earth Conjunction; Geocentric Uranus-Venus Opposition

I believe the metals need a strong push up to complete the 5th wave up for this rally. It will be very interesting if this happens near silver's geocentric Neptune 72° cycle on August 1. There have been very few Neptune cycles since starting this blog, but while writing this post I noticed 2 that I had previously missed. I don't think I bothered tracking them because at the time I didn't think they were useful. March 26 was a gold geocentric Neptune 36° cycle, 3 trading days after a major high. April 15 was a silver geocentric Neptune 72° cycle, 1 day before a major low. Because Neptune is so slow several days should be given either side of the target date.
8/1/2013: Silver Geocentric Neptune 72° Cycle

Gold's corresponding geocentric Neptune 36° cycle is on the 24th and makes a Golden Triangle with Mars and Venus.
8/24/13: Gold Geocentric Neptune, Venus, Mars 36° Golden Triangle

The August 19 Gold Uranus 72° cycle is discussed further in the link at the top.

Plasma, Cave Drawings and Auroras, Part II

In Part I of this article, we looked at plasma physicist Anthony Peratt's paper Characteristics for the Occurrence of a High-Current, Z-Pinch Aurora as Recorded in Antiquity, which provides evidence that thousands of years ago there was a leaking of the solar wind into the Earth's atmosphere resulting in dramatic auroral phenomena that were witnessed and recorded globally.

Now let's explore Peratt's follow-on paper, Characteristics for the Occurrence of a High-Current Z-Pinch Aurora as Recorded in Antiquity Part II: Directionality and Source.

In this paper, Peratt shows that petroglyph sites overwhelmingly have a south-facing field of view, typically being located on the south side of a mountain or hill. He gives the time setting for the drawings generally as the Neolithic or early Bronze age, also mentioning approximately 7000 years ago and the Magdalenian culture for some specific sites. He also describes a global Z-pinch aurora entering from the South Pole that was recorded all over the world.

The petroglyph drawings of this global aurora differ as a function of latitude. Therefore the perspective from an observer in the Southern hemisphere differs significantly from one in mid-latitudes or from the Northern hemisphere. Peratt combined each observation, treating them as pixels of a larger image as a function of the geographic location of the observers. The combined image is shown below.
The Earth is contained within the 56 surrounding filaments as shown below. There is a twisting of the filaments above Antarctica.

Examples of 2 drawings from the Columbia River Basin in the Northern Hemisphere are given below, along with the virtual perspective for that latitude.
The drawings are sometimes personified, such as on this vase uncovered from Nasca, Peru, at mid-latitude.
From Australia the perspective includes the Earth's surrounding filaments, interpreted by the artist of the drawing below as the body of the personified figure.

Planetary Prices and DOW Longitudes, Part II

Reader Nate previously gave us some insight into Jay's method of forecasting prices by showing us the historic DOW prices when the planets were at the same positions as May 21, 2013. This work helped us to see that these specific planetary positions are often indicative of trend changes in the DOW.

Nate has emailed me with an update showing a similar analysis using the July 15 planetary positions. Nate is seeing a lot of heliocentric pentagonal alignments for this date.

From Nate:
"The analysis works like this. when one has a date which is considered to be a candidate for a turning point, then is inputting that date on the computer code and then the code returns all the distances in degrees for the various outer planets that Cowan recommends to look at in his book and the whole idea is to see whether such dates correspond to points in time in the past where there have been major turning points. so, for example, from the charts sent, if we focus just on 15-Jul-2013, we have very important alignments with the low of March 2009, the major low of 1974, the high of 1987 just before the crash and other important dates which turned out to be turning points.

The vertical orange/yellowish coloured lines are drawn at the dates indicated by Cowan in his pentagonal book to mark the 16-17yr cycles (pentagonal harmonic of Uranus). Then, with letters in the legend of the charts I indicate the planets. Hence, A=Uranus, B=Saturn, C=Jupiter. With numbers I indicate how many degrees, so for instance A18 gives you all the points in time where sidereal Uranus was 18 degrees away (and its multiple) from 15th July 2013 reference date. A180 gives all the points back in time where Uranus was 180 degrees away from the reference date etc. The same thing with Saturn and Jupiter. Hence, C390 means Jupiter making sidereal 360 degrees PLUS one additional zodiac sign (additional 30 degrees). If a legend has got AB, that is to indicate synodic cycle, as opposed to sidereal. Hence, for example, when you see AB144 located in 1987 it indicates that there is a cycle alignment of the reference date of 15th of July 2013 with the 1987 crash when we look at synodic Uranus-Saturn cycle 144 degrees back. The various degrees for the synodic Uranus-Saturn, for example 135, 144, 180 are those indicated as relevant by Cowan in his book, in the same way for example also Jupiter 360+30=390dg is taken by Cowan to represent Beast cycle when looking at it in terms of Jupiter sidereal.

The colouring is employed to allow the user (observer) of the chart to check whether the a selected reference date (usually a point in the future, in our particular case 15th of July has been selected) resonates with some major turning points in the past, when using fixed, selected degrees which have been recommended by Cowan in his book to be important for the occurrence of turning points.

The overall message of the charts presented is that around mid-late July 2013, there are lots of resonances with major turning points which occurred in the past, including 1987 crash, the lows of 1974 and March 2009, the peak of 2000 etc."

Is the Jupiter-Mars Effect Weakening?

The Jupiter-Mars cycle has been a crucial force in driving the movements of the markets since 2009, first described here.

However, a review of this cycle shows that this cycle may be losing its effect as a major force.

SPX and the Jupiter-Mars Cycle
Cowan states: "A review of Jupiter-Mars conjunctions shows they often correspond with turns when aligned with other cycles." In Pentagonal Time Cycle Theory, Cowan lists many important aspects that were involved in the March 2009 major bottom, and a similar confluence was present at the May 2011 top, discussed here.

The oppositions in 2012 were not accompanied by other such major aspects, so although they still resulted in turns, the effect was not major.

The geocentric conjunction coming up on July 22 shown here occurs in trine with Neptune and Saturn. This should add weight to the importance of this date, although (with my very limited experience) trines do not seem as influential as conjunctions and oppositions.

The heliocentric conjunction on August 17 occurs 72° from Venus and at the same time as a Ceres-Earth opposition near 18° and the Moon's nodes at 18°. These aspects should add support to this turn date but I'm not convinced based on these aspects alone that either the July or August conjunctions rise to the level of importance that the 2009 or 2011 conjunctions had. (More on the August conjunction later.)

Therefore, I think we should pay close attention to the upcoming Jupiter-Mars conjunctions, one of which could mark the final top of the rally, but I suspect there may be something even more important coming into play.


One clue that I like to use is inversion charts. Now that we have seen the May peak and correction play out, let's look at an update to this post. [Note: I have switched to DOW for the chart below.]

The predicted path is right on track, with a relatively shallow correction from the May peak, and the all time highs currently being challenged. (Nasdaq has already exceeded its May peak.) We are approaching a period of minor correction/congestion, after which a very strong rally should ensue (blow-off top).

Using this chart as a very rough guide for price and time, it appears that August might be too soon for a final top, There were 4 months between the March 2009 low and the first important low in July, which are the inverses of peaks 9 and 10. That puts us very roughly into September 2013 for a final high. For price, there was a rally of approximately 2500 points from the March 2009 low to the June high at peak 1. Adding 2500 to the June 2013 low gives approximately 17000 points for a high. These projections should not be taken too seriously, as we can see from the chart above that the matches are approximate only and the actual top can be months and thousands of points different from these estimates.

Next I show the long term chart for the DOW against its inversion. This chart is not up to date, and is on a log scale, so there is some distortion. The point of this chart is to show the analogy that the rally we are in since 2009 is essentially a re-play of the rally from 1932 to 1937, upside-down. Therefore the final top we are looking for correlates to the July 8, 1932 bottom.


I want to come back to something I first brought up in this post, the Uranus-Pluto square. The last heliocentric Uranus-Pluto conjunction was January 7, 1966, very close to (and making a double top with) the February 9, 1966 major high. [Note: I don't have enough detail to see the exact date of the January high.] This opposition occurred at the Nasdaq's 72° harmonic, with Saturn in opposition at 32°. (Other important aspects are in place in this and subsequent charts which I don't mention.)

1/7/1966: Heliocentric
The heliocentric Uranus-Pluto square previous to this conjunction occurred in January, 1933. Uranus and Pluto are extremely slow so the square aspect remains in effect for many months, and was present at the July 8, 1932 bottom. On this date, Venus, Ceres and Earth were in near opposition to Pluto, and also square to Uranus. Geocentric Uranus (not shown here) was at the Nasdaq's 72° harmonic.

7/8/1932: Heliocentric

We are currently in the Uranus-Pluto square that follows the 1966 conjunction. So I think we should be looking for some kind of configuration with this level of importance to mark the final high. I think Jupiter is going to play the reinforcing role that Ceres/Earth/Venus had in 1932, and that Saturn had in 1966, with Jupiter soon opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus.


There are 7 geocentric and 1 heliocentric Uranus-Pluto squares in the 2012-2015 time frame, discussed here. The following chart shows that while the Jupiter-Mars cycle may be losing influence, the Uranus-Pluto square seems to be gaining influence.

SPX and Uranus-Pluto Squares


In a final piece of evidence, I want to show that the March 24, 2000 and October 10, 2007 major highs involved (among other things) major planets squaring Uranus. Notice that Jupiter-Uranus squares were involved in both major tops.

3/24/2000: Heliocentric
10/10/2007: Geocentric


The following charts show a few possible configurations that could rise to the level of importance we are looking for. There are other possibilities but I just present a few that I think are good candidates, and we should get a better picture as we get closer.

At the time of the August 17, 2013 heliocentric Jupiter-Mars conjunction, geocentric Jupiter will be squaring Uranus, so this remains a good possibility, but would require a very strong rally into this date, significantly above the current high. On August 8, geocentric Jupiter is at exact opposition to Pluto, and square Uranus.

8/17/2013: Geocentric
 On September 5, heliocentric Jupiter will be at the Nasdaq's 72° harmonic, opposing Pluto and squaring Uranus. Venus opposes Jupiter on the 11th and joins Pluto on the 14th.

9/5/2013: Heliocentric
 On October 3, Earth joins Uranus in the square.

10/3/2013: Heliocentric
On November 13, heliocentric Jupiter is in exact opposition to Pluto. Venus is conjunct Uranus on the 10th. The exact heliocentric Uranus-Pluto square is on the 24th.

11/13/2013: Heliocentric

In Summary, I believe there are at minimum 2 things that need to happen before the final top is in.

1) We need a high that is significantly higher than the May high and without a major pull-back (a blow-off top); and

2) Jupiter should be in a square aspect with Uranus. This does not happen until July 23 when geocentric Jupiter enters this aspect, in effect through September 20 and most intense in August. The heliocentric Jupiter-Uranus square overlaps this, running from August 18 through February 3, most intense in November. This gives a window of July 23 through February 3.
11/17/13 update: Geocentric Jupiter is again square Uranus January 11, 2014 through June 7, 2014, which expands the window to July 23, 2013 - June 7, 2014.

There should also be some type of "triggering" event, such as the possibilities listed in the section above.

August 19: Gold Uranus 72° Cycle

A while ago I made an exhaustive study to find the cause of each of gold's turns since the 2011 peak. This study demonstrated that the aspects that are most important to gold are different from those which are important to equities. Gold is particularly sensitive to Neptune and Uranus conjunctions and oppositions with Earth and Venus for example, due to the current proximity of Neptune and Uranus to gold's 36° and 72° harmonics, respectively. We are in a period of very important aspects taking place, so I have highlighted some of these in the chart below. (June 26 was a Neptune-Venus opposition and may have marked an important low, although 2 days off.)

Neptune and Uranus conjunctions and oppositions to Venus are circled in red.
Neptune and Uranus conjunctions and oppositions to Earth are in blue.
Neptune, Uranus and Saturn directional changes are in green.

Gold Futures
Keep in mind that we saw previously that gold's long term movements are driven by the harmonics of the outer planets Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Gold's Uranus 72° harmonic will hit on August 19. Neptune will be at 36° on September 9. So far I have not found Neptune harmonics to be useful for timing, so I think there is a good chance that the Uranus 72° cycle August will mark a major bottom, and potentially the cause of a reversal back into bull mode.

8/19/2013: Gold Uranus 72° Cycle

Silver's Uranus 36° cycle occurs in October.

Friday, July 5, 2013


On this holiday weekend I want to show you something interesting. The U.S.A was founded on July 4, 1776. In traditional astrology, geocentric orientation is used. Here is the geocentric birth chart.

7/4/1776: USA Geocentric Natal Chart
Our Independence Day holiday celebrates every year the return of the Sun to its natal position at 14° Cancer. The return of a planet (or other object) to its natal position in traditional astrology is an important event - it signifies "completion" in a way. Here is the geocentric chart for this year.

7/4/2013, Geocentric
Notice that many planets are very close to their natal positions. It is striking how similar these 2 charts are! Indeed, it seems that the U.S. is currently undergoing a major transition (along with the rest of the world).

The geocentric natal position of Jupiter is 5° Can 51'20". The return of Jupiter to this position will be reached on July 22, 2013, a date which should be familiar to readers here.

In this blog we tend to focus on Jupiter's position in the heliocentric natal chart. The heliocentric natal chart for the U.S. is shown below.
7/4/1776: USA Heliocentric Natal Chart
The heliocentric position of Jupiter is 4° Can 27'35", which sets the harmonics pretty close to the NYSE's chart. The heliocentric natal return of Jupiter will be reached August 28, 2013.

8/28/2013, Heliocentric
