MILTON'S ASTRO VIEWPOINT
is renowned for his uncanny and accurate forecasts on world
politics and economics. Many a politician, economist and trader
has visited this website and read the monthly predictions,
concerning future global economical trends, including subsequent
stock market directions and possible overtones; his predictions are astoundingly accurate.
July 2021 Astrological Forecast
You may wake up on July 1 and think to yourself, “What positive opportunities loom for me this month?”. Well, do not be too optimistic, as July 2021 is virtually an ongoing cycle of controlling the global mayhem of the Covid-19 pandemic. Also, lockdowns, maintaining strict quarantine periods for international travellers, and improved global distribution of vaccination services will be debated. On the general scene throughout July, we'll see tit-for-tat political deliberation between the West and China over trade, tariffs, and security issues, escalating real estate and building costs, increased charges for consumer goods and services, stock market dilemmas, and continued frustration for many disgruntled business communities due to financial limitations and government restrictions.
Astrologically, the reason for July’s restlessness and unsettledness is prompted by Mars (impatience and aggressiveness), clashing with Saturn (patience and conservatism). From the 2nd, Mars (forcefulness) will also collide with Uranus (disruption), triggered by the last quarter of a negative Moon. Unfortunately, this will not be a favourable start for July, especially the first ten days. Events and situations may appear to be a little topsy-turvy for many until the New Moon rises at 11:16 am AEST on July 10, in the motherland and home security sign of Cancer. The New Moon in Cancer will bring a little relief, sensibility and stability for many regarding home matters, employment, material security and daily routine.
Throughout July, many families and small business outlets will be endeavouring to secure an improved base of operations and develop greater self-sufficiency through secure career opportunities and careful budget planning. Hence, many small businesses should reignite throughout July and begin to show a profitable monetary cycle ahead by August-September. Real estate transactions should continue to escalate during July, with record sales.
Mercury (communication) moves into the home sign of Cancer on the 12th and many individuals may consider commencing an online business opportunity working from home or relocate to a different town or city for employment. Some may decide to redecorate an existing dwelling, before selling and investing in land to build their dream home away from their present location. With Jupiter (expansion) in Pisces (security), the demand for rental property will increase over July, making it difficult for first home buyers to save money for a future dwelling deposit due to escalating consumer costs.
WORLD HERITAGE MEETING
Jupiter (law) in Pisces (ocean) will influence the 2021 extended 44th session of the World Heritage Committee when it meets in Fuzhou, China during July 16-31. Due to the tit-for-tat diplomatic and trade superciliousness between China and Australia, China (according to their horoscope) is becoming ridiculously juvenile in their approach to Australian sovereignty matters, especially concerning the Great Barrier Reef. With Neptune (hypocrisy) in transit through Pisces (secrets), China appears to be covertly plotting within the committee to declare the Great Barrier Reef as ecologically in danger. The CCP will do everything in their power to upset relations between China and Australia until the Australian government bows down to China’s communist ways. This WHC meeting is basically endeavouring to squash the Australian tourist market, wipe billions of dollars from the Australian economy and destroy around 60,000 jobs, by listing the Great Barrier Reef as “in danger”.
Astrologically, will China succeed in this falseness? According to the global horoscope the answer is no. During 16-31 July, Mercury (meetings) connects favourably with Uranus (debate) and Neptune (sea) making it difficult for China to have sufficient legal backing from members. Also, Jupiter (law of the sea) will retrograde from Pisces (ocean) into Aquarius (independent sovereignty) giving Australia a winning hand against China, sanctioned by the World Heritage Committee. This disgraceful display of arrogance by China is just another exercise in not wanting to negotiate a peaceful compromise through diplomatic dialogue with the Australian government and western alliances over trade. As predicted in the past, if China continues to play controversial, intractable games with the West, this could lead to a global war from 2025 onward, when Uranus (sudden and unexpected) clashes with China’s natal Mars (action) and opposes China’s Jupiter (massive) entering the cunning and running rampant sign of Gemini by May 2026.
The Tokyo Olympics commences on Friday 23 July, 2021 and ends Sunday 8 August 2021. According to the Japanese horoscope the combination planets Venus (peace), Mars (interruption), Jupiter (expense), Saturn (restriction) and Neptune (virus) will play a critical part in the success of the Games due to Covid conditions and restrictions. The day following the opening is the commencement of the last quarter of the Moon on the 24th, followed by the competitive planet Mars (energy) opposing Jupiter (professional). This will give organisers and athletes greater determination to make the long-awaited 2021 Olympics successful under unfortunate, restrictive circumstances. Allowing a selective public attendance into the stadiums to view the games will be a disappointment to athletes. According to Japan’s horoscope, the daily Games programs are predicted to have minor overall interruptions, faults and disruptions, and by August 8 the Japanese will be given credit by the Olympic committee and global public for their diligence, persistence and organisational abilities to make the Games a success during these troubled times.
A warning for July, be cautious and alert. Jupiter, planet of expansion, is in retrograde (negative) transit through the mysterious sign of Pisces until the 28th, together with Mercury, planet of investigation and news, clashing with Neptune (secrets), creating countless behind the scenes problems. Expect sudden adverse weather changes and some seismic activity, an increase in intelligence gathering, espionage activity, cybercrime, and the stealing of confidential corporate intel such as trade secrets, employee records, and government and company test results.
The Sun (important) meets with Pluto (crime), influencing a rise in financial and commercial organised crime, drug cartels, assassination, internet and phone scams, insurance fraud, corruption, racketeering, arson, sex trafficking, pornography, bank robberies, and con artists using fraud, embezzlement and bribery to acquire money. Care should be taken throughout July when buying, selling, trading, signing contracts or making agreements. Do not part with your hard-earned cash unless you are absolutely satisfied with the completed result. Laundering illegal money and large cash sums in art and sculpture to avoid taxation and authorities will also attract many corrupt people. Police and security agencies will have an extremely successful investigative and conclusive month during July.
Jupiter (increase) in the institutional sector of Pisces will see very slight in-house charges throughout the banking and lending system from July onward, not noticeable to most. Venus (income-money- expenditure) clashes with an array of planets throughout July and this will encourage bankers to consider future interest rates adjustments due to a growing economy, general wage rises and inflationary trends. Expect July to show public demands for extended credit, home loan borrowings, motor vehicle sales, white goods and TV sales, higher oil prices for consumers, and increased costs in living. If one is thinking of borrowing large amounts of capital in July for real estate, consider a fixed term interest rate for a nominated term, as interest rate adjustments for mortgages may be considered by bankers from May 16, 2022 onward, due to higher employment figures and increased inflation.
Looking ahead, on May 18, 2023, the Moon on that day will be in transit through the financial and securities sign of Taurus, co-joining Uranus (change) and Jupiter (expansion) for the first time for 12 years. Watch mortgage interest rates rise sharply from this date onward. Some homeowners and property investors will be caught with falling real estate values and unaffordable financial loans during May 2023 to June 2025. For those wishing to purchase property at bargain prices, you could not pick a more favourable time during those years; it will be worth saving and waiting for.
Be aware, a major eco problem is rising again from July 2021 onward. The short supply and demand for timber and paper products will create price rises, increased deforestation, and logging. Jupiter rules massive things, and whilst it transits Pisces (junk sector of the global horoscope) for the first time in 12 years, a clearing out process will start to take place. Globally, over the past two years during the pandemic, a record number of purchases – electrical, home goods and leisure activity apparatus – have been accumulated by business houses and home consumers.
From this month onward, junk yards and rubbish depots around the globe will capture the concern of state governments and local bodies, due to the ever-increasing flow of dumped used goods, such as discarded electronic devices, old laptops, desktops, cell phones, TVs, used electronic batteries, outdated white goods, solar panels, plastic containers and disused building and household materials. Many of these devices and goods cannot be recycled and are entering landfill on otherwise valuable, useful land. This will add to another problem that will require new ideas for disposal of non-recyclable goods.
The world will have an even greater problem between 2026 and 2033 –disposing of used goods, once Uranus (electronics-power) commences a long transit through Gemini (infrastructures). Used solar panel farms, wind turbines, batteries and electronic hardware disposal will become an important issue for governments. Remember many solar panels and wind turbines need to be replaced every 18-20 years. What do we do with much of the non-recyclable junk-landfill? People who have installed solar panels between the 1970s and 90s will now find their panels are not producing as much power as they once did and may need replacing to gain electricity discounts with suppliers.
As mentioned last month, care should be taken with speculation of cryptocurrencies. With Jupiter (law) in Pisces (institutions), Bitcoin in the next six months will be a target for governments and banks. However, Jupiter (expansion) will leave Pisces (secret dealings) temporarily from July 27, 2021, and return to transit back into Aquarius (speculation-investment-legislation) until it returns into Pisces from December 2021 to May 10, 2022. Expect to see new legislation introduced during this cycle by governments regarding taxation for profit of crypto currencies. Legislation will also include anti-corruption and criminal codes to prevent organised crime and corrupt businesses from using money laundering transactions through Bitcoin. Jupiter is the planet that influences international banking, therefore, banks will also have no confidence in Bitcoin agencies and may outlaw any association of transactions with them over the next two years.
For those speculators who invest in crypto currencies, the next six months is a time to use your profits for other financial deals, before the hammer comes down, otherwise massive losses by investors are indicated. Bitcoin will crash, and, behind the scenes, the US government will be secretly in the process of changing banking and taxation legislation. Investors can expect a severe crackdown. Cryptocurrencies, at present, are a great taxation escape for many. However, new taxation legislation will hit many investors with capital gains, and they may not have the cash to pay it once the cryptocurrencies take a nosedive. Watch Bitcoin trading this month during 1-10, 14-21, 26-27.
COUNTRIES ADVERSE WATCH LIST
Unfortunately, the world is continuing to attract adversity during these difficult times. The following countries are ongoing into astrologically extreme situations over the next six months due to Covid-19, social media regulations, political disruptions, right wing extremism, economic and natural disasters, terrorism, riots, corruption, human rights, health emergencies, juntas, military skirmishes, piracy, major crime, human trafficking, electoral fraud and possible assassinations: Belarus, Zimbabwe, USA, Poland, Djibouti, Cuba, Germany, Italy, Grenada, Belize, Iraq, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Qatar, Bahrain, Canada, Bulgaria, Romania, Congo, South Africa, Eritrea, Vatican City, China, Hong Kong, Iceland, Jordon, Eire, Israel, Russia, Argentina, Slovenia, Croatia, St-Vincent-Grenadine, Swaziland, Japan, Myanmar, Ecuador, Khalistan, Dagestan, India, Italy, France, Sudan, Brazil, Peru, Bahrain, Jordan, Nigeria, Mexico, Nicaragua, Uganda, Albania, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Mozambique, Mali, Chad, Bhutan, Sierra-Leone, Ethiopia.
With the Sun (supreme) mirroring on the global horoscope employment sector for most of July, and linking favourably with the opportunity planet Uranus, a wide range of jobs will be advertised, and the workforce is predicted to grow, influencing a lowering of unemployment figures. From the New Moon on July 10, improved opportunities will be available in agriculture, farming, animal husbandry, landscape gardening, mining, building industry, civil engineering, driller, labourers, geologist, stone mason, grave digger, real estate agent, hotel staff, restaurants, cafes, butchers, bakers, cooks, oceanography, shipping, fishing, stevedores, truck-taxi driver, mechanics, marketing, advertising, retail sales, accountants, secretarial, hairdressers, massage, physiotherapist, chemist, and aged care. E-commerce websites will increase during the July to December period. Rest assured, when Jupiter (enlarge) moves back into Aquarius (communities) from July 28 to December 29, employment opportunities will be on the rise.
President Joe Biden (Scorpio) enters a difficult month in politics. July shows Venus (balance) and Mars (action) both in transit through the zodiac sign of Leo (government), clashing with four of the natal planets in his horoscope. With much travel and meetings around the country, Biden will tend to show insecurity at times and will need to find a positive structure in his presidential life. This is a month of changes in the US economy: financial instability, inflationary trends, and proposed taxation reforms. Biden will have moments of strong dependence on people close to him and he could have concealed doubts about his professional direction. Transformation and changes in his personal lifestyle are also likely. Unconscious fears could emerge, or he may recall past events that need to be resolved. Intense emotions, and a tendency to go to extremes or lose control of important matters is indicated. Biden may experience some difficulty with communications and remembering important words from March 2023 onward, due to Saturn, planet of limitation, moving from Aquarius (independent thought) to Pisces (mind confusion) for the first time for 29 years.
With both Venus (compromise) and Mars (action) in transit through the zodiac sign of Leo (intenseness), July’s frustration regarding Biden's desire to have more of the American public vaccinated by July 4 does appear to be difficult and not forthcoming. Also, the Senate will oppose legislation over future oil pipelines and immigration, forcing Biden and the Democrats to consider an alternative compromise. Executive orders to secure certain legislation will be moderate during July. Corporate tax legislation reforms for wealthy Americans will be high on Biden's agenda through July and August, together with national gun control. Carbon emission targets to zero by 2050 are predicted to be a non-event. There are too many important future astrological events, political changes and international skirmishes around the globe for this target to be achieved by 2050.
Co-operation between Democrats and Republicans over defence policies will also become a priority throughout July. With Mercury (inventions) in the zodiac signs of Gemini (communications) and Cancer (home grown), tech companies will be on the march throughout the next six months with new defence expertise and local domestic production. New technologies, programming, semiconductors and local telecommunication production will be a high priority with the increasing competition of China. With Saturn (conservatism) re-entering Aquarius (future) from July 29 to December 30, expect to witness a positive move forward with artificial intelligence research, robotics, quantum computing and a range of other technologies by American companies to keep ahead of China. Defence and law enforcement restructuring will also be a priority, especially when Jupiter (expansion) moves into the defence equipment building sign of Aries, from May 11, 2022, to May 18, 2023.
Iran President elect, Ebrahim Raisi (Sagittarius) is a very intelligent, ultra-conservative person, with an optimistic disposition, and he enjoys a challenge. He is rich, well educated (PhD) and held a position in the judiciary as a prosecutor before entering the political scene. He is a personality to be watched carefully, and not to be taken lightly by the West. He is not afraid to take on any adversary to prove his success. He operates on the premise of “he who strikes first has the advantage”. He resents people telling him what to do and may resort to unfair tactics to discredit them. Raisi had an adverse early history; in his 30s his name was indelibly associated with the mass executions of Marxists and other leftists in 1988, when he was deputy prosecutor of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran. Raisi has always denied playing the role of executioner. His speech is penetrating, and he expresses himself harshly; he is quite direct and insensitive. He can be very unpredictable, showing extreme dictatorial behaviour one minute and then maintaining poise under pressure the next. World leaders will have to step on eggshells when negotiating with Raisi if they want to keep the peace. He continually flies a flag of social injustice against corrupt politicians and will defy anyone or anything that is unethical and perverted.
Raisi (Sagittarius) has backed talks between Iran and six world powers to revive a 2015 nuclear deal but rejected meeting with US President Joe Biden (Scorpio). According to Raisi’s horoscope, he will have discussions with the US over sanctions, and his forthcoming relationship with China may cause concern for US and Western allies, including Israel. With Saturn (conservative) linking positively with Raisi’s natal Sun and Moon during 2022-23, he may be holding an ace up his sleeve regarding future global political and oil negotiations.
Barnaby Joyce (Aries), Australia’s new Deputy Prime Minister, has been through extreme political turmoil and personal difficulty over the past three years, resigning as deputy leader of the federal government, separating from his wife, and fathering two sons with his new partner Vikki Campion (Pisces). Barnaby Joyce has now been resurrected to the position of Deputy Prime Minister through a National Party leadership spill and according to his horoscope is a changed man. Barnaby Joyce, as a Coalition politician, is very responsible, contemplative, and serious. With an accounting and commercial background, he prefers to solve any problem logically and spends little time on superficial matters. He is intellectually capable, ambitious, and competitive. He tends to be a loner and works better if he can set his own pace. Pluto, planet of breaking down and rebuilding, has been opposite his natal Jupiter (philosophy), influencing Joyce’s change of heart and direction over the past three years and his constituents can expect to see a new Barneby Joyce, a fighter who will not back down from a political challenge.
With Saturn (discipline) forming a positive aspect with his natal Sun (achievements) and Mars (energy) until March 2023, Joyce will reform the National Party’s popularity. Joyce is predicted to increase the National Party vote with country folk, farmers, agricultures, miners, and rural businesses, influencing a guaranteed majority support and retaining a three-year Coalition return of government for 2022. His partner Vikki Campion also commences her new, exciting 12-year Jupiter cycle (fortunate), influencing home, family, property, and career security from December 28, 2021. Prime Minister Morrison (Taurus) and Joyce (Aries) will have a progressive, constructive Coalition working relationship for the next three years, lifting business and job opportunities and the Australian economy to greater heights.
The planetary aspects during July are volatile up to the 10th, then they appear to settle, when Mercury, planet of trading, buying, and selling, moves into the consumer sign of Cancer until the 28th. Oil, gold and silver should feature this month and gains can be made. Biotech, Nasdaq, the motor vehicle industry, telecommunications and the computer industry are on the brink of massive change due to the shortage of silicon semi-conductor chips. With Jupiter (expansion) moving into Aquarius (future) at the end of July and in transit through Aquarius until the end of December, new microchip companies will be on the market with great manufacturing potential. Keep an eye open for companies dropping the silicon chip for new solutions and replacement technology. With Uranus (electricity) in the financial sign of Taurus, billions of dollars are about to be spent on this new technology and those companies will make investors very rich in a short period of time. The computer industry and internet are about to launch into a new age, with many millions of new computer users ready to purchase hardware and programs for the very first time. Also remember, hydrogen companies are worth investing in for the future.
The following days may assist investors with market trends as the planets and Moon transit the Wall Street chart. Using the plus and minus system overall for trading days, hopefully you may be forewarned with some idea of the market direction. Care should be taken with plus days as they will fluctuate hourly on a positive and may possibly end up slight minus at closing.
