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.


July 2017 Astrological Forecast

There will be plenty of surprises and interesting news stories circulating through the global media in July as the “Cosmos” opens a bombshell full of unexpected confusion, uncertainty, apprehension, disorder and turmoil around the world. With an angry first quarter Moon and a hostile planetary combination of Mars (provocation) and Pluto (catastrophes) triggering mayhem in the arenas of politics, finances, mining, trade, criminal activity, malware, immigration, terrorism, assassination threats, demonstrations, strikes, fire, explosions, accidents and natural disasters, be prepared for a nerve-wracking time. Mercury (announcements) also fires a broadside into Uranus (sudden and unexpected) during the first week of the month, opening the door to a controversial cycle of confusion and misperception within government circles and personalities. Strong leadership is needed from July onward to set countries on the right course, otherwise we will have to accept our fate from 2018 to 2026 when the slower moving outer planets Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto form powerful and at times extreme aspects that will influence serious division in the universal horoscope for our global future security.

With the international planetary picture on the verge of major change in the months ahead and throughout 2018, expect a future budget blowout in Medicare and private healthcare, social security, disability insurance benefits, defence and government borrowing. Global debt is on the way to disaster if governments do not stop spending on infrastructure with borrowed money. Taxpayers cannot afford to carry the burden of government spending and future interest payments, especially when Jupiter (extravagance) moves into the financial sign of Scorpio on October 10, for a 12 month period. Be ready for some fireworks with world currency value and debt, it will be huge.

Venus (planet of peace and goodwill) will commence transit in the zodiac sign of Gemini (communication) from the 5th and this planetary cycle will endeavour to tone down any major adversity in political circles and ease certain negotiations between governments, industry, unions and employees. Interest rates appear to stay steady in July with banks looking toward October as important rate rises. This will be a challenging month for those associated with newspapers, magazines, television, radio, advertising agencies, internet, international conferences, new business discussions, amalgamations and negotiations. With such a busy month ahead, expect a flurry of surprising daily market changes, together with interesting breaking news stories when Mercury (announcements) connects with Jupiter (increase), Saturn (important) and Uranus (media) during the 6th – 25th. Health services, consumer durables, utilities and technology services will be steady investment stocks.

With the Sun in transit through the zodiac signs of Cancer and Leo throughout July and Pluto (break-down and rebuild) in the business sign of Capricorn, wages, real estate, home and job security matters will be uppermost in the minds of many. Industrial relations will be a centre of discussion with unions and employers negotiating work wage cases and enterprise bargaining, due to the increasing cost of living standards, gas and electricity costs. July will also see a sharp price rise in consumer goods and services; your daily grocery bill will increase with less goods for your dollar. More and more people will be spending their entire wage packet on mortgages, rents and their general cost of living and saving little for their future. Governments will have to consider cutting foreign aid with so many alien people in transit and a steady increase in refugee migration. People will want more safety and solidity in their own countries before handing over their hard-earned dollars elsewhere. Governments will need to take a firm stand and slow down or halt immigration for a period of time to balance the social security books. Pricing stability will be non-existent throughout July.
When Uranus moves into Taurus (finances) during May 2018 for a period of seven years, it could bring the world to its knees if fiscal policy is not changed and adhered to. Uranus (lawless) has not entered Taurus (finances) for 84 years, June 7, 1934. This was the commencement of world change especially in Germany. 100,000 demonstrated in Zwejbrucken for the restoration of the Saar of Germany. "The Saar is German and will remain German," Joseph Goebbels told the crowd. "We will never rest until the despotic barriers are torn down, and we can welcome you as our blood brothers in the union of the Reich.” Joseph Goebbels opened a campaign against "defeatists and critics" of the Nazi government. During his announcement he issued a "last warning" to the nation's Jews, saying they would have to "behave as guests". The rest is history financially as the world headed towards a global war and financial rationing. Uranus remained in Taurus throughout WW2 until May 15, 1942. History does repeat itself in many unusual ways, but this time it will be very different.

Venus will meet with Neptune (oil) during the 17th and 18th giving oil prices the thumbs down. When Venus (value) meets with Jupiter (increase) between the 18th and 20th, gold and silver prices could see a slight jump. Travel deals this month can also bring value for money with hotels, resorts, airline and cruise packages offering holidays at bargain prices. However, take care with travel in July, for Mars (aggression) will clash with Uranus (accidents) especially during the 16th and 20th, making holidays around this period difficult. Accommodation, house and factory fires or unusual incidents could also be prevalent throughout July. Weather patterns should change from the 9th with cold, light snow temperatures in the southern hemisphere and only light to moderate showers. Windy, hot and humid conditions in the northern areas will be seen with some flooding in low lying areas.

The winners this month will be farmers, with excellent cattle, sheep, pork, dairy and agriculture produce prices; the demand for meat and vegetable products will be high. Builders, developers and real estate agents will also continue to reap big rewards, together with those involved with fishing, butchers, coffee, bottled water, optometry (eye glasses), childminding, hairdressers, beauty products, fashion houses, franchise holders, fast food outlets, funeral houses, grave diggers, lawyers, antique collectors, accommodation places, locksmiths, hardware, shipping, security services, furniture, homeware, pharmacy, surgical instruments, sex industry, film and entertainment. Employment opportunities will be steady throughout July and figures will show slight growth. However, with the Sun (energy) knocking Jupiter (expenses) this month, governments will be extending themselves in projects that require more energy and are beyond their resources. Consequently, further into debt we all go. It will be easy for the government to say, “This is what you want and this is what you will have”, but where is the money going to come from to pay for everything? Jupiter and Pluto form a volitive aspect on the 29th; this could be the key date for major financial exchange move with banks into August. Financial negotiations and changes regarding global trade, Brexit, Paris agreement, Syria and North Korea will be seen. Not a good time for a compromise. Friction is predicted.

President Trump throughout July will have a very productive time if he can keep the expansiveness of Jupiter (extravagance) within limits. His optimism and self-confidence will be more interested in "what can be" than in what really is, and he could over-extend himself. However, with intelligent planning and foresight, Trump will be able to succeed beyond his wildest dreams. His ego strength is great and opportunities are likely to flourish. The month tests Trump's efforts to grow as a world leader. Challenges will be met and obstacles will be overcome. The 7th, 8th, 10th, 16th, 18th, and 19th will be stressful dates for Trump. He will be obsessed with getting to the bottom of every question and will not be satisfied with superficial answers regarding the economy and world crisis situations. Trump will never be impeached, he has a positive future as president of the USA.

Prime Minister Turnbull will have to show stronger leadership throughout July if he wishes to have the electorate on his side. This is not his best time for team-working with others on group projects. The strong focus is on himself; he will have a valid need to express himself and if this need is not fulfilled it will hold him back in his future self-confidence and personal growth. Turnbull can expect major changes in his life which will require significant reorientation. He will need to be on his own and find his own ways of doing things, unhampered by the liberal right ways of the past, which may no longer be appropriate. There could be a crisis this month regarding his leadership which graphically brings him face-to-face with the realisation that he needs to change his leadership qualities to be effective. During the 12th to the 20th Turnbull will encounter a critical period that is likely to trigger sudden upsets, rash behavior, and surprising incidents. Energy explodes in unexpected areas and much may happen without warning. His first impulse is to assert his freedom at any cost. He may want to rebel, and is likely to act rashly and impulsively over left and right ideologies. However he will have the capacity to influence others when necessary, making it clear that what he says is truth, not opinion. Turnbull will stay leader of the Liberal Coalition government this month; there will be no spill.

Favorable days: 5, 6, 7, 8, 14, 15, 19, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, 31

Cautious days: 1, 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 20, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30.
