This post is to address a fundamental concern.Our friend, Somnath Mukherji had asked a very important and interesting question:
".....Where I get confused is, most of the time, there is too much of
information. Moon declination, trines, conjunctions, so many planets and
so on. Something or the other is always going on somewhere. Now we have
to find out, which of these really have some effect on our markets...."
Iam quite sure this must be a question several readers who are new to Astrology or have only a passing acquaintance with Astrology must have asked themselves.
Let me make one assumption before attempting to answer this important question. I assume that most readers of this blog are people who are active traders or investors and that the reason they read this blog is to get an edge on market moves through Astrology.This must be one among many such blogs most of them visit routinely.
Now let us attempt to answer.
There are two axioms which work quite effectively in Financial Astrology.
1.The Moon must be involved in all manifestations or actions which we see in the physical plane.
2.It is not only the Moon`s longitudinal positions but also the latitudinal positions which really point out what happens in the markets.
Let me illustrate with two charts:
Black arrows are points where the Moon reaches maximum or minimum Latitudes.Red arrows are the times when Moon reaches its maximum distance from the Moon or minimum distance from the Earth.
I always select two adjacent dates whenever Latitudes are involved.
Iam sure anyone with rudimentary understanding can make money with just these two leading indicators. I have not even used New Moon or Full Moon or Declinations here.All the aspects and star based analysis are just to know the depth and extent of the movements as understood through the Moon.
If we can combine this with Fibonacci and Elliott wave understanding Iam sure we can have a simple method of trading the markets.Then one doesn`t even need to know the play of aspects of larger planets actually!
Now, this is not a fool proof method. There will be false signals occasionally.This is why I keep cautioning about stop losses and allowing the markets to show the way first.
The larger aspects and formations will reduce the errors considerably. But one can take his time about learning those, if this method is first deployed.
I keep posting all the important aspect formations every week, along with the declinations and other Lunar formation.If on a date if there is no lunar formation but Moon is involved as a third party in an aspect between two planets then one must be careful about reversals on that day.
I do hope this post removes some of the confusion prevailing in the reader`s minds.
