Every year gets better and better with our forecasts. Although 2022 is not yet over, several forecasts made in the 2022 book have already unfolded. We will list a few of the forecasts below as of July 25. Keep in mind these forecasts were written in October-November 2021, and published December 2021, well before 2022 got underway.
ECONOMIC AND MARKET FORECASTS FOR 2022 (made prior to December 1, 2021) The U.S. Stock Market and DJIA: “…In today’s terms, this (Jupiter/Saturn cycle phase) would imply a peak is happening now, as we enter 2022, and a bottom in 2022-2023… However, our bias is that the U.S. stock market will make a double-digit decline from its all-time high into a 22.5- or 24- month cycle low that is due by July 2022.. We expect the end of the cycle will exhibit the steepest decline (since March 2020), which so far has been 10.46% in October 2020…The ideal decline in the DJIA would be 10-20%.” – Result: The DJIA made its all-time of 36,952 on January 5, 2022. It’s low as of this writing has been on June 17, 2022 at 29,653, which is a decline of 19.75%.
Gold: “Each of these geocosmic signatures suggests that Gold completed a very long-term cycle crest in August 2020. However, a secondary crest could happen in 2022 or even early 2023… In fact, the next upside price calculation off the double bottom lows of 2021 gives a target of 2075.80 +/- 47.50, which would be a double top to the all-time high of 2089.20.” – Result: The high of the year was on March 8 at 2078.80.
Euro: “The next short-term stop would be a bearish 24-month intermediate-term cycle trough. This low is anticipated in the time frame October 2021-September 2022, at a price target span of 0.9159-1.0154.” – Result: As of this writing, the low in Euro has been .9950 on July 14.
Dollar/Yen: “My bias is that the Dollar/Yen will continue to rally to the crest of the longer-term 16.5-year cycle into 2024-2025… a rally to 119.50-125.50 is possible.” – Result: –The trend was right but the price was much higher than anticipated, as the high so far has been 139.39 on July 14.
Bitcoin: “We expect Bitcoin to make an important high sometime between November 2021 and May 2022.. Then wait for a 55-93% decline to a four-year cycle low due in the latter half of 2022 through early 2023.” The all-time high of $68,999 was achieved on November 10, 2021, as the book was bring written. It then fell to a low of 17,588 on June 18, 2022, a decline of 74.5% so far.
T-Notes and Interest Rates: “Between the Saturn–Pluto conjunction, the Jupiter–Pluto conjunction, the U.S. Pluto return in 2021 –2023, and the Jupiter –Uranus and Saturn –Uranus squares in 2021, the stars suggest that this multi-decade bull market is closer to its end than to its beginning. In the likely event that the March 2020 high at 140/24 was the long-term cycle crest, we could anticipate T-Note prices to decline into the 125-132 range at the least in 2021… If the March 2020 high was the 3-year cycle crest, though, then we could expect a corrective decline to 129-132” The low of the year as of this update has been 130/25 on April 5.
U.S. Dollar: “It may be trying to form a 5.5-year cycle low due by early 2021. If so, the downside price targets are the same as given above: 87.25 +/- 3.91… The U.S. Dollar also appears to exhibit a 3.25-year cycle too. Measured from the low of February 2018, it is next due to bottom in May 2021 +/- 8 months.” The low so far has been 89.53 on January 6, 2021, the day of the insurrection on the U.S. Capital. The high of the year has been 93.73 on August 20, right on the August 20 CRD given in the book.
Crude Oil: “The ideal time band for this 3-year and 17-month crest to unfold would be between March and August. The upside price objective for a crest is in the 105.00-115.00 price zone. However, if that resistance level clears early enough, an explosive rally up to 140.00-145.00 could unfold.” An explosive rally did unfold as Russia attacked Ukraine. Crude Oil shot up to a high of 130.50 on March 7.
Corn: “While Saturn and Uranus have completed their three exact square aspects from 2021, they will come within one degree of each other again in September-October 2022. This suggests that the various issues with supply chains, shortages, and potential crop-damaging weather events are likely to continue into 2022… There will likely be some resistance Corn encounters between 680-700, but if it can clear that price zone, 820 +/- 20 becomes highly likely for 2022.” – Result: Corn topped out at 824 on April 29.
EXAMPLES OF MUNDANE WORLD AND NATIONAL FORECASTS
COVID-19: “With Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces, it can be both sides of the story: increased freedom to move about, but tendencies to be careless for which a price may have to be paid soon after. Enjoy the freedom of Jupiter and Neptune, but it is best to refrain from being too careless.” Most COVID-19 restrictions were lifted last year, yet new variants spread following this less restrictive policy. It’s still with us.
Inflation and Economy: “Thus, from the projection of geocosmic cycles to these economic trends, it seems that inflation will persist through 2022, and possibly into the first half of 2023. This means the world economy may continue to fall short of economic projections. It also means that the rise in the cost of goods is likely to exceed the rise in wages, which does not bode well for economic growth, and which could start to show up in economic reports in 2022.” – Result: As of this writing, inflation continues to grow worldwide, nearing 10% in the U.S. now, a new 40-year high. This has caused the economy to continually contract and fall short of growth projections in 2022.
Weather: “Whereas Pisces (December 29, 2021-May 10, 2022) is moist, Aries (May 10-Ocotver 27, 2022) is fiery. Jupiter in Pisces may correspond with rains and floods, but Jupiter in Aries is more apt to coincide with fires and droughts.” The planting season had delays due to rains, then the summer was hot and dry, producing drought-like conditions.
War: “Thus, the world may witness yet another serious conflict in 2022-2023 nearby to when Jupiter transits from Pisces into Aries….” –Result: Russia invaded Ukraine just before Jupiter moved into Aries, and as of this writing, the war is still in progress as Ukraine has shown incredible resistance and bravery. The book then went on to state, “How do we as a collective best deal with this? By rewarding acts of bravery and courage but discouraging acts of aggression that lead to unnecessary and dangerous situations putting human lives at risk only to satisfy some egoistic urge of a deranged world leader or would-be world leader. It is not a good time if you are subject to the ego-driven needs of a ruthless personality whose only objective is winning and conquering others at any cost.” The events themselves speak to this forecast.
Market and Economy: “These policies and behaviors strongly imply the economy is near a peak, and the stock market may be as well. There is no room for an unexpected event to erupt that causes an economic, social, or political crisis, yet this is exactly what the first one to three years after a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction and Saturn/Uranus hard aspect has historically brought forth. Inflation could put both the government and the central bank in a very difficult position to choose between controlling inflation with higher interest rates or supporting the economy by keeping rates down while inflation grows. I think they will vacillate back and forth in 2022, and the danger is that many will think they have lost control, a typical appraisal with Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces.” Central Banks all reversed their accommodative monetary polices as inflation raged. The situation became dire when Russia also attacked Ukraine, adding on to the supply disruptions that had already begun due as a result of the previous administration’s tariffs on trade.
Opportunities for the U.S.: “Fortunately, transiting Jupiter will go stationary retrograde on the cusp of the U.S. seventh house. This will offer a great opportunity for the U.S. to enter into positive agreements and treaties with its allies and create a sense of goodwill and renewed trust… The transit of Uranus will be interesting (as they show) technological innovations from the U.S. can lead to another wave of business and economic opportunities for growth.” – Result: Russia’s aggression in Ukraine has prompted a swift response by the U.S and NATO, strengthening their bonds and new agreements with one another. It has also led to new trade initiatives with one another.
President Joe Biden: “Aside from health and energy, the President may have to make a critical decision involving the military within three months of May 2022. This is further indicated by the transit of Uranus, which is in opposition to his natal Mars … Yet, both they (progressives) and the moderates are disappointed with him, and both feel he has betrayed his campaign promises. As a result, his approval ratings are apt to remain more negative than positive as transiting Saturn continues its descent down his natal chart, a time that suggests many obstacles and delays lie ahead in his quest to accomplish his ambitious plans.” – Result: He had to make critical decisions immediately after Russia attacked Ukraine in February. Yet his approval ratings are extremely low as of this writing and continue to fall from his peak in early 2021.
And of course, the all-important Critical Reversal Dates. Many of the 2022 critical reversal dates, based solely on geocosmic signatures for the year ahead, given for various markets have been impressive, and several have coincided with yearly highs and lows so far.
