The market moves through periods of optimism, expansion, anxiety, depression, and panic,
as dictated by the magnetic winds that govern the universe. These periods are known as
economic cycles. Some economic cycles last for centuries, while others have a duration
of only a few minutes, hours, or days. It is possible to obtain approximate market predictions
via analyzing these sequences and projecting them forward, but more accurate predictions
can be produced through astrology.
Astrology requires the exact computation of when and where the planetary bodies
will reach exact aspects such as 90, 180~, I20 from one another. Correlations have
been found between planetary aspects and economics cycles. Today the theory that the
magnetic forces generated by planetary aspects cause cycles is gaining acceptance by
cyclic theorists and astrologers.
Like all astrological forecasting, Financial astrology does not yield exact results, but its study
can give indications that have a high degree of probability. The best results of all can be obtained
when astrology is combined with the usual fundamental/technical methods.
The astrological aspects that are the easiest to learn and use are those between the sun and
moon (these can be found in an almanac). Sun/moon aspects are so important to the market that
you can be correct about 80 percent of the time if you use only this type of aspect.
The sun and moon are conjunct at the new moon, and unless overshadowed behavior
aspects, the market can be expected to move upward at that time. The sun and moon are in
square aspect (90 ) at the first quarter and last quarter, and a bear market is the normal result.
The sun and moon are in opposition (180) at the full moon, which usually brings a somewhat
bullish market, but is not as positive as the new moon.
Sun/moon trines (120) come halfway between the opposition and the First quarter or last
quarter; they are indicators of bull markets.
Since aspects cast their influences before them, the expected effect will usually come the
day before the aspect is exact. When it does reach exactness, it is all over.
The planet Mars acts as a “trigger” for certain undesirable long term stock market
movements, whenever this planet is square or opposes one of the outer planets. In fact, the
stock market is 70 percent likely to develop a downward trend whenever Mars is in conjunction
with one or more outer planets and simultaneously pattern is not alleviated by trines and sextiles.
The orb for the square should be 50, but 80 can be allowed for the opposition. The following
aspects are especially bad for the market: Mars conjunct Saturn, Mars square Neptune, Mars
opposite Jupiter, Mars in opposition–regardless of the planet. All Martian retrograde stations
should be regarded as critical to the market. In contrast, stock prices have consistently risen
during the thirty days just before a conjunction of Mars with Jupiter or Mercury
