Astro-Cycles and Speculative Markets published in 1935 this book is an authentic classic including two of the best “How-To” books on Financial Astrology ever written combined into one volume.

L.J. Jensen has written his life’s work into this volume based on over 50 years of study, research, and actual application of his concepts in the stock an commodity markets. Concise and to the point, the methods shown in Astro-Cycles are being used today by some of the most successful private traders and large companies.


Section I offers some introduction to working applications of what I term astro-cycles. The sources are the long established astronomical
orbits of the principal planets in that small niche of the Universe which comprises the Solar System of the Earth. For example, applied to cycle cadence is Jupiter and Saturn with their apparent conjunction approximately every 20 years. Many of these planetary cycle applications
were original when published in 1934, but since then have been lifted out of context and embraced by publications issued in Calcutta, Hong
Kong, London, New York and Los Angeles. The plagiarism is of little importance but the widespread practice has brought to attention the
unquestioned validity of the data.

The purpose of the material in Section II was a notebook reference manual to present the salient procedures and elements of astro-cycle
applications to mundane affairs. Public psychology, business cycles, the price swings of speculative commodity and stock markets, wars, famines, major weather trends, etc, have innumerable keys to answers by this concept.

Very little of the material has been co-ordinated before in print so that a student might quickly grasp the more significant factors. Separately
most of the factors have been generally known but not the why and how of mixing them. Part of this condition has been intentional: why throw to the winds hard won data? There is another side though. Modern society has boxed itself in, painted itself into a dangerous corner. Outwardly it is in great shape in its apparent affluence, mechanical achievements and productive know-how. Actually it is a shell of wasted
resources, mountainous debt, galloping inAation, and eroding moral concepts. An Age is at an end which is out of date, primitive and selfrighteous with the chest-pounding adage that man is captain of his fate. He may perish unless he gets down to the reality of Natural Law.

Section II contains no pretense of giving all the answers to modern problems. However, it does offer a means to a well-hidden phase of
Truth which might lead to a foundation of security for those diligent enough to examine and test the data. That such an approach infuriates
those who proudly hold that nature has no design, no purpose and no form of continuity ceased to concern me more than fifty years ago.

A major factor in the workings of Natural Law is cosmic radiation, that enormous vibrational power of the Sun which is reflected, deflected
and mixed with the vibrational forces of planets striking the Earth in a constantly varying array. Often it is ponderously stated that none of
these vibrations are strong enough to affect a human being. In almost the same breath they talk about the possible uses of solar energy. No
matter if proven, or hallowed, or generally accepted as a fact of life it is always easy to find some clown who vehemently disagrees. Perhaps
the answer is not the defense of the how and the why, but does, does it give results?

In my youth it was generally accepted that the claim electrical signals could be transmitted without wires was a complete hoax, equal
only to the idea that man could fly in anything but a balloon. On these two points alone college professors rated as scientific authorities, plus
office holders who felt they protected the people, were around giving lectures warning against such idiotic claims.

Here are methods and their working factors of close to a half a century of producing results. It is an esoteric subject; it is not for the
average investor who really gets his kicks putting money into an array of stocks and then every day sweating the price movements. Over the
years he usually ends up with one winner and ten losers. This material is for the serious winner who has the attitude of a navigator and impersonally obeys his computations. He is not in markets for kicks but for profits.

Section III uses some of the basic factors of Section II and applies them to a system which is a coupling of time and price. It is a simple
charting of market prices. It is so simple any change or revision in the basic premises involved destroys its effectiveness. It will not work properly with logarythmic scales, and the dependence on time brooks no shortcuts or distortion in the arithmetic scale.
