This is how the planets may influence the trends in this cycle ahead!


2017Throughout 2017 the world will be exposed to many mind-blowing and surprising political crises and economic transformations due to the influence of a number of very attention-grabbing planetary aspects prompting major events throughout the year. The first sign of critical change will be witnessed between January and April when Mars (action), Jupiter (law and government), Saturn (limitation), Uranus (unexpected liberation) and Pluto (transformation) form a protracted period of economic and political uncertainty due to higher financial interest rates, changeable diplomatic relations, global trade and policy variations, defence matters, immigration, welfare and employment. This will be followed by a double whammy combination of planets when Mars (aggression) clashes with Saturn (limitation) and forms a link with Uranus (surprise) during May influencing a volatile and extraordinary time for stock market and financial trading. Then, just when everyone thinks, "Wow, that has been a stirring  and surprising five months of political,  economic, financial excitement and unrest" - then, out of the blue comes the aggressive combination of Mars (caustic), Jupiter (development), Uranus (erratic) and Pluto (readjustment) forming a huge and brisk redevelopment and political repair cycle around the globe from June to November. That final cycle will be interesting and compelling for investors.

What a year 2017 will be, full of interesting negotiations, shock and counter surprise, as countries versus countries and to top it off, that weighty official hammer of law and order will appear from time to time to ‘KO' many political and corporate leaders against corruption tax-evasion and malpractice. With a number of new heads, presidents, prime ministers, government officials, bankers, corporate bodies, investors on the scene during 2017 and especially with a reshuffle at the United Nations, this will be one of the most colossal and demanding clean-up years seen for decades as the world embraces tremendous positive, political and economic change.

What can the world population expect throughout 2017, you may ask? Jupiter, planet of law and order and expectation, will be in transit through the balanced sign of Libra until October 10, 2017. During this year, financial and economic uncertainty will be frequent as new trade laws and policies are introduced that will induct countries to follow a different exchange path extinguishing previous stalemate diplomatic practices for more modern marketing, bargaining and techniques. The introduction of new federal legislation, incentives and trading structures by the USA, including tariffs, is predicted to be challenged and debated by many countries. These new positive trade policies and agreements will eventually revolutionise the global financial and economic exchange cycle for many years into the future. New improved trade arrangements for countries this year will trigger many governments to rely more on their own innovated creativity, new developments, economic competiveness and hard work or suffer the consequences on the world market over the next two years.

During Pluto’s continuous transit though the business sign of Capricorn until 2024, new ground will be broken in diplomatic, business and trade circles from 2017 onward. In the long run a welcomed change will be seen for global investors, as greater economic stabilisation begins to slowly form as early as June, but especially from October 2017 into and throughout 2018 when Jupiter (abundance) moves into the financial sign of Scorpio for a twelve month cycle. However, the fiscal and economic changes throughout this year will not come easily because of a fluctuating dollar, Euro and Yuan. Initially, expect much cautiousness with international business, higher oil, gas and electricity prices, inflationary trends and a slump in global taxation revenue. The leaders of governments around the globe, including the United Nations, will also need to take the initiative and express a more positive attitude toward achieving reconciliation amongst destitute and hostile nations and implement new policies and techniques to resolve present day international disagreements and poverty. Re-building countries will be a mammoth task and will take years to complete, because money will be the problem.

According to the horoscope of the UN for 2017, transiting Pluto (corruption, covenants) will clash with the natal Jupiter (greed) and transiting Uranus (unexpected) will collide with natal Mars, creating internal favouritism, extravagance, budget blowouts, behind-the-scenes deals, procrastination and negativity with Security Council issues and internal Secretariat problems. The toothless United Nations and their so-called humanitarian ideals programs and global warming scenario are also predicted to reach a negative climax and re-ignite debate amongst many nations during 2017. The 193 countries who agreed to sign the Paris emissions agreement in 2016 can kiss their United Nations hundred billion dollar climate fund down the drain, as some countries will default due to confrontational immigration problems, economic hardship, disenchantment, scepticism and cynicism from constituents, who would rather see their hard-earned funds being distributed into their own country to regenerate industry, trade, employment opportunities, health, education, welfare services and infrastructure. The UN horoscope is predicted to undergo a critical corrective transformation in leadership, direction, funding methods, budget tightening and trusteeship policies over the next three years.

With Neptune (oil-gas) continuing through the compatible sign of Pisces, countries around the globe are predicted to continue using a higher content of fossil fuels due to low costs and consumer demand compared to costly wind farms and alternative renewables. During 2017 with the opposition of Jupiter (enlarge) and Uranus (oppose) influencing climate debate, some countries and their constituents will oppose the idea of their governments introducing any form of carbon tax, pricing or trading. Carbon trading will only encourage financial greed, fraudulent transactions and corruption and do absolutely nothing for so-called global warming.

We tend to forget that nature in all forms including climate runs in variable cycles (“the Alpha and the Omega the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End”) It takes around 26,000 years for the solar planets to return to their respective places in the global horoscope and during this long period in transit, adverse and unusual weather cycles on our planet have created storms, floods, droughts, wild fires and the melting of snow and ice in arctic areas. However, the re-freezing over time does take place and the inconstant climate in the future will continue to come and go in these categories over the years and there is really nothing we can do to stop it. We also tend to forget about the 1200 or so undersea and surface active volcanos that are continually spewing out pollutants that upset the sea beds, coral reefs and living organisms.

The major pollution problems in this day and age is caused by humans, due to overcrowded population in certain areas, wars, destruction, deforestation, excessive fishing from the sea beds, sewerage, waste rubbish we accumulate and the way we dispose of it, but certainly not the weather. Trees need CO2 from us and they in return supply the globe with oxygen, so perhaps we should plant more trees and at the same time the UN should consider keeping people in their own countries to re-establish their native communities, restore infrastructure, employ, trade and live peacefully and respectively in their own habitat and custom?

During this noteworthy geophysical year we will encounter two Solar Eclipses, February 27 and August 22, and two Luna Eclipses on February 11 and August 8. These Eclipses usually affect countries in surprising forms, both in positive and negative ways either three months before, during, or three months after the celestial event and this year is no exception for the unexpected. These critical Eclipses will trigger many important international and local issues, bringing them to a head throughout this year. Below are countries on the astrological watch list for 2017 that will face challenging and difficult circumstances due to immigration, racial discrimination, human rights, unemployment, increased financial debt, negative and or corrupt political leadership, attempted assassinations, defective diplomatic relations, trade complications, economic unrest, political uncertainty, strikes, demonstrations, health and disease, welfare issues, terrorism or internal wars and a variation of severe weather cycles, floods and seismic activity.

Eire, Germany, USA, Tanzania, Libya, Syria, Liberia, Micronesia, Iraq, Iran, Mozambique, Great Britain, Slovakia, Yemen, Czech-Republic, Argentina, Guatemala, Colombia, Bolivia, United Nations, Albania, Sierra-Leone, Bhutan, El-Salvador, France, Uganda, Vatican, Singapore, Australia, Hungary, Brunei, Cambodia, New Zealand, Danzig, Bangladesh, Nepal, Peru, Guatemala, Biafra, India, Pakistan, Iceland, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Greece, Zimbabwe, Russia, Yugoslavia federation, Kosovar, Japan, Venezuela, Iran, Luxembourg, Kenya, Maldives, Thailand, South Korea.

With Pluto (genocide) continuing a slow transit through Capricorn (resolution), terrorist activities throughout 2017 will continue, however the war against terror will start to subside due to greater public vigilance and a severe clamp down by global defence forces, police, security and intelligence agencies increasing their close cooperation of network information gathering and sharing. 2017 will be a difficult year for cybercrime, WikiLeaks, organised crime syndicates and criminals due to Saturn (frustration-limitation) continuing its final transit through Sagittarius (restricted-freedom) up until December 2017, making it difficult for law-breakers to achieve their plans. Critical dates for cyber disturbance, malware, terrorism, major crime, drug, kidnapping and human trafficking : Jan 5, 12, 18, 19, 21, 29, 31, February, 1, 22, 24, 28, May 10, 28, 29, 31, June 14, 18, 19, 24, 26, 28, 29, 30, July 2, 4, 16, 18, 29, August 5, 8, 18, 22, September 1, 5, 10, 15, 24, October 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 23, November 4, 11, 18, 19, 21, 27, 30, December 1, 2, 3, 9, 20, 30. Jupiter (legal balance) will influence the system to establish new superior legal penalties for certain crimes and also consider releasing low risk existing inmates through reduced sentences to clear overcrowded correctional facilities.

Global financial and trading markets throughout 2017 will produce some exciting moments and traders should be on full alert to capitalise on the opportunities that will be made available. There will be some great rallies as confidence grows with investors, especially in the USA. Unfortunately, for many who have multiple real estate investments with excessive mortgages, the USA Federal Reserve and the Australian Reserve Bank will be under pressure to increase interest rates throughout 2017 due to inflationary measures. Rate rises could be seen from February onward, with May and June looking likely for further increases. Gold and silver prices appear to show increases in the first four months of 2017, more so from July to September. The global economy shows constructive elevation from October 10 onward.

Stock markets overall could show positive trading during the months of January, March, April, May, June, September and November. Financial market during February, March, April, May, June, October and November. There appears to be no recession or depression in 2017, however there will be cautious and restrictive periods especially during January 18-21, January 28-February 3, February 21-28, March 9-25, March 31-April 7, April 19-25, May 10-13, May 16-31, June 5-7, 14-19, June 28-July 5, July 15-18, 23-29, August 1-18, September 1-5, 23-30, October 6-14, 25-30, November 3-5, 10-14, 19-21, 26-28, December 1-4, 9-11, 20-24.  Care should be taken with all trading during these dates as world crises will ricochet on the market place.

Oil this year should hold around $48-54 per Brent Crude barrel as production stabilises with OPEC users and the oil countries come to a regular agreement. However, Saudi-Arabia will encounter problems and disagreements ahead as Pluto (deals) connects with Saturn (restriction) on the country’s horoscope. Russia’s closer links with the USA in 2017 could have a bearing on Oil and Gas pricing throughout the year, together with America reducing its imported supply from the Saudi’s. Dates to watch for oil and gas prices: January 3, 12, 13, 14, 23, 25, March 4, 5, 26, 28, 29, May 10, 12, 13, 27, 28, 29, June 19, 20, 21, 27, 28, July 17, 18, 19, August 11, 12, 13, September 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 29, 30, October 1, 24, 25, 26, November 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 28, December 3, 8, 10, 11, 27, 28, 30. Meat and Live Stock price should bring pleasing news for farmers throughout 2017 with excellent gains in live cattle exports and local market consumption. Pork will also fetch high and steady prices this year.

Donald Trump (Gemini) according to his horoscope will make a good president, his chart is starting exceptionally well on a positive note throughout 2017 and his chosen cabinet will be the best the USA has seen in office for many years. Instead of career diplomats doing most of the global negotiations and decision making, the world will witness a superb team of tough, disciplined, skilful negotiating and marketing business professionals who will show signs of turning the USA trade and economy around within the first twelve months in office. The individual horoscopes of his cabinet candidates appear unhampered by any major planetary difficulties during 2017. The world will be surprised and perhaps gobsmacked with such a fast forward development in a short period of time with the business actions of the new Trump government. The US media is predicted to have egg on their face in 2017.

How will Donald Trump (Gemini) USA and Xi Jinping (Gemini) China get along with each other? Surprise, surprise, they have a lot in common: both were born with compatible sun and moon signs and their relationship will be admirable, direct and tough. The men will respect each other and Xi Jinping will have a better working relationship with Trump than he had with Obama. When these two presidents meet officially for the first time, there will be caution, yet direct positive understanding with both parties. Neither party wants war, instead they will want equal economic opportunity, security, business organisation and cooperation. The present financial imbalance between the two countries will be the priority issue in their initial discussions. Trump will be pleased with his personal meeting with Xi Jinping, due to their cosmic empathy and compatibility. China has much to offer the USA and America has much to offer China; there will be new beginnings for both countries. Trump will have the knack of taking the “T” out of the word “Threat” in his negotiations and on no occasion will he show intimidation. Trump likes honesty.

Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull (Libra/Scorpio cusp) can expect an extremely challenging and problematic year especially during February, March, June, July, November and December. Mars (debates) and Uranus (opposition) will create much turmoil for him and force him to renege on certain budgetary plans and government promises and policies due to global economic changes, regulated trade, dwindling taxation revenue and a hostile opposition and Senate. He will experience a series of unexpected events that will test his ability as a leader. His popularity will be showing a decline within the liberal/coalition party and the electorate at large and he will be forced to make changes in his life’s direction that require significant reorientation. If Turnbull does not take charge and show stronger and forceful leadership from January 2017 onward, he will be battling to keep his leadership by May 2018.

According to Turnbull’s horoscope, he appears to be negatively suggestible, and tends to go in the opposite direction from any political pressure. His communication will falter in 2017 with a lot more “um’s and ah’s” instead of getting to the point of an issue quickly and positively. Turnbull and Trump will have a respectable, but not necessarily close relationship. Trump likes people with directness, motivation, determination and honesty, not people that sit on the fence, patronise and take time to do things. Some astrological advice for the Prime Minister and his entourage of foreign diplomats? They should have every commercial, defence and joint intelligence proposition detailed to the point of acute bargaining when discussing future free trade agreements and other governments business with the Trump government, otherwise they will be sent packing by the Americans. The new USA government in 2017 will not be time wasters, that's for sure, even though the US/Australian alliance is and will always be strong.


June 2017 Astrological Forecast

With a waxing (rising) Moon (positive) together with a constructive gathering of planets unlocking the first week of June in the universal horoscope, expect to see a more optimistic outlook with global markets throughout this month, especially from the 6th when Venus (balance) moves into the financial sign of Taurus for a five week period. International statistics will confirm a slow improved growing economy with enhanced employment opportunities. Also with Mercury planet of negotiations and agreements entering the communications sign of Gemini on the 7th until the 21st, and at the same time linking with determined Mars, this should add extra stimulus to economic growth on a global scale.

The big news is that Jupiter, planet of expansion, has been in retrograde (negative) since February and will now commence its forward motion on the 9th in the balanced sign of Libra until October 10, enhancing positive diplomatic negotiations between countries and reinforcing cooperation with global economies. With Venus connecting favourably with the slow moving outer planets this month, investors should be happy with increased positive trends with stocks and a slight turn-around growth cycle showing with some energy minerals and financial markets. If you are thinking of investing into Bitcoin, you may be on the right track. With Jupiter (luck) moving into the financial sign of Scorpio from October 10, 2017 for a 12 month period, speculative investors  will find their investment in Bitcoin could rise considerably in the future if you wish to purchase this month and hold.

Currencies this month will see some positive moves on the international exchanges, especially on the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th, 16th, 20th, 21st and 29th. Look for oil and gas price changes on 14th, 15th, 19th, 21st, 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th. Banks, technology, consumer durables, health services, transport and utilities should also feature well throughout June. Farmers can expect excellent prices for cattle, sheep and vegetable produce. Consumers can also expect to pay more for their consumer goods throughout June; prices will be high.

Solar and wind energy certainly has its place in today’s society, however with Neptune (fuel) in Pisces, fossil fuels will still be the major player for energy services in the future. Investments in utilities, coal and natural gas will still be a winner during the next few years and profits can be made. Unfortunately, solar and wind power costs will be escalating from this month onward, causing consumer prices to increase. With Neptune (fluids) linking with Pluto (cartels) many industries and households will suffer severely through ever-increasing prices of energy supplies. Taxpayer subsidies for the establishment of inadequate supplies of renewable energy is costing consumers millions of dollars every year. If China, India and Japan are building more coal and gas fire utility plants to supply their populations for low cost services, then why shouldn’t Australia and the rest of the world follow suit? There is plenty of coal and gas in the ground to supply cheap fuel for industry and consumers around the globe for many years in the future, without the fear of climate change.

During this month, with the Sun in transit through the signs of Gemini/Cancer, global warming and so-called climate change appear to frighten many for no real reason and the USA will be under the spotlight to make decisions regarding the Paris accord. It is nothing but a cash grab for the United Nations new world order and traders alike. Neptune (illusion) in Pisces (confusion-fantasy) carbon trading is a con and the world will eventually come to terms with this hoax in the foreseeable future. The nuclear age of electricity supply is not that far away, from January 22, 2024 when Pluto (plutonium – transformation) commences its transit in the futuristic sign of Aquarius (new age) until January 20, 2044, we will see the benefits of nuclear energy supply together with sand product renewable materials for many multi decades in the future.

Unfortunately in June with Mercury (communication) and Neptune (conspiracy) adversely connecting, there will be a continuation of vocal comment and conflict coming from North Korea over their imaginary threats of imminent war from the USA. Kim Jong Un (Capricorn) will have Mars (war mongering) opposing his natal Sun (power) causing him to buck the system with his ridiculous huff and puff that he will blow the USA away. Dictator Kim will prepare for another nuclear test this month and will continue to send missiles into the Japanese sea to impress his gullible followers. Little does he know that Pluto (self-destruction) is presently crossing his natal Sun (ruler) and Uranus (sudden and unexpected) from the full Moon on the 9th of this month until March 7, 2019 and forming a horrendous opposition with this natal Mars (aggression). It is during this timetable we will see the end of Kim Jong Un’s rule as a dictator of North Korea. By 2020 negotiations with North/South Korea will be seen to establish a new order and the country becoming a peaceful economic one Korean peninsula in the future.

Mercury (planning) and Saturn (hatred) will clash in June and the war on terrorism will also escalate from this month onward. With these two planets adversely situated in Gemini (transport) and Pisces (behind the scenes) the terrorist plan could be to target transportation modes (Gemini) such as power grids, trains, buses, aircraft, airports, shipping and (Pisces) music events, stadiums, hotels, resorts, military establishments and police. Unfortunately, terrorism will be here to stay for some time in the future, until Uranus (erratic) moves into Taurus (stability) in 2019 for a period of seven years and governments decide to officially close borders and stop the flow of radical illegal immigrants during this period.

With Venus (extravagance) and Uranus (garage) in Aries, this is a great month to trade and purchase your new motor vehicle. With the end of the financial year heading your way, you may be surprised with the deal you can achieve. When Mars (direct) enters Cancer (home) on the 6th, if you are considering buying or selling real estate or a business, or making renovations or decorations to a premises, the cosmos will also be in your favour. Have a talk to your friendly bank manager, he may be waiting at the bank door with cash in hand for you. There appear to be no planetary aspects this month that will cause the real estate bubble to burst. Quite on the contrary, real estate prices and rentals will continue to rise, with demand remaining high.

The Sun will transit Gemini until June 21 and move into Cancer on the 22nd. This monthly planetary cycle will favour strongly those seeking employment opportunities and career or business changes in the following areas: renewable energy, advertising, auto sales, auctioneer, brokerage, bus driver, conductor, buyer, journalism, radio commentator, courier, franchiser, illustrator, librarian, linguist, postal employee, manicurist, printer, railroad worker, transport, stenographer, taxi driver, weather forecaster, real estate, building, plumber, farming, botanist, baker, coal miner, debt collector, cook, fisherman, grave digger, garden and lawn maintenance, merchandiser, hardware, jeweller, hairdresser, home wear, shipping clerk, purchasing agent, cleaner, night worker security, military, navy and oceanographer.

The corporate crime rate for June could see an increase, especially taxation, fraud and the misappropriation of funds. Businesses under scrutiny this month will be banks, insurance, money lenders, real estate companies, accountants, law firms, stevedores, freight companies, service organisations, charities and franchises. Most crimes this month may appear after the full Moon on the 9th. With the New Moon in Cancer on the 24th to the end of June, expect an increase in robberies, home invasion, domestic violence, rape, assault, fire, demonstrations, strikes and unusual accidents due to electrical faults and weather. With Mercury (announcements), Mars (acute), Jupiter (temperature) and Neptune (weather) forming harsh conditions in the second half of June, especially after the 21st, expect to see major weather changes with utilities under pressure to supply heating for the southern hemisphere and cooling in the north.

On the political scene, during the 5th-10th President Trump (birthday on the 14th) will make reform statements regarding renewable energy and climate change. He will stand by his decision to keep miners at work and encourage the development of infrastructure with natural gas plans for the USA. Trump will continue to have a positive political month throughout June; he will be highly ambitious, full of optimism and enthusiasm for his new enterprises and plans. Regarding the North Korea issue, he will keep his expectations within reasonable bounds. Certainly no war this month. The Democrats still cannot believe he won the election and will sulk due to Trump's continued achievements in the months ahead.

Prime Minister Turnbull appears to have no major planetary aspect that will cause him dismay throughout June. However during the 12th-16th he will encounter irritability and will have a tendency to become impatient with the opposition and others when thing do not go his way. Polls do not appear to change greatly for Turnbull this month and he will still be the preferred Prime Minister and some achievements for him will be seen in June.

Overall June appears to be a month of achievement and growth, with employment opportunities on the rise, and retailers should have a profitable month. With Mercury in the communications sign of Gemini, record sales of mobile phones, computers, software, printers and electronic devices could be seen. Hardware, timber and paint supplies will be on the increase as Mars (work) enters the home and building sign of Cancer. The key word for June is “busy”; much can be achieved through meetings, conferences, negotiations, errand, deliveries, discussions, interviews, organisation and education. Media this month will be full of interesting and surprising news.

Favourable Days: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 29.
Cautious Days: 2, 5, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 24, 25, 28, 30.

Talk Soon.
