In W.D. Gann Divination By Mathematics, the author analyzes a little known article that W.D. Gann wrote for the Milwaukee Sentinel in 1919. Most, if not all of the material on Gann and his techniques are based on some type of astrological interpretation. In this work, you will see that astrology was not the main factor that allowed Gann to make his amazing and pinpoint accurate forecasts. It focuses on another well known aspect of Gann’s work, which is the based on the numerology of the name.
As my interest and study of cycles grew, I obtained my first book on astrology during this time. Although this first book was on Vedic astrology, I have studied many forms of astrology over the years. Naturally, studying subjects such as cycles and astrology, I eventually came across the work of W.D. Gann. The first material I ever came across about Gann had nothing to do with the stock market or astrology. From what I remember, it just talked about Gann’s concept of cycles and how he divided periods into their harmonic components.
At the time, this is as far as I had delved into the work of Mr. W.D. Gann. However, as time passed I started to delve into stock market astrology and naturally Gann’s name came up again. It was at this time that I realized how important his work was. Here we have an individual that could forecast the movement of stocks months and years in advance, and his ability to do so was well documented. After reading more about him and his work, I was intrigued, and set out to learn as much as I could.
Unfortunately, as the years passed, I became more and more frustrated with astrology and the astrological interpretation of Gann’s work. Through my continued study and application the astrological techniques were not showing consistent results for me. I began to feel like something was missing and was questioning whether I was wasting my time. Fortunately, before giving it all up, I came across a little known article that Gann wrote for the Milwaukee Sentinel Magazine dated January 5, 1919. In this article, Gann says:
“In making my predictions I use geometry and mathematics just as an astronomer does, based on immutable laws which I have discovered … Some weeks ago I read an interesting article on the failure of astrologers in their predictions regarding the war. Now there is a great deal in the vibrations of the planets, but to make accurate predictions the great law behind it all, which the ancients understood, but which they purposely refrained from putting in their books, as they wanted to keep the secret for themselves, must enter into the calculation. That is why astrology fails, for nothing can be accurate that is not based on mathematics – and so few astrologers are mathematicians.”
So here we have Gann telling us quite explicitly that in order to make accurate predictions something else must enter the calculation and that this is why astrology fails. Yet, most if not all of the Gann material out there is based on some type of astrological interpretation. Even in Gann’s novel, The Tunnel Thru the Air, the opening paragraph of the seventh chapter on future cycles is a carbon copy of the first sentence from the quote above. In the novel, the main character Robert Gordon says, “My calculations are based on the cycle theory and on mathematical sequences.” If he was using astrology, I would think it would read a little different. Perhaps, “My calculations are based on astrology.”
Although the main character in the novel is said to be a great believer in astrology and knew that the Bible was replete with references that the heavens ruled, he takes it upon himself to go see Professor O. B. Joyful in the hope that the great science of astrology would throw some light upon the disappearance of Marie, the love of his life. Think about this, if Robert Gordon was using the same astrological techniques as the Astrologer, Professor O.B. Joyful, to forecast the movements of stocks and commodities, wouldn’t you think that he could do that himself. Taking into consideration all of the above, we have to come to the conclusion that he wasn’t solely using astrology. If we are truly to understand the foundation of what Gann was doing, we have to come to grips with this, and it is my opinion that this 1919 article is the key.
In the 1919 article, Gann makes some predictions about the German Kaiser Wilhelm Hohenzollern, and provides some details as to how he made his predictions. We have to come to the realization that there is no difference in the method that Gann used to forecast events for individuals and those that he used for stocks. If we can use this article to ascertain how he made forecasts for the German Kaiser, then maybe this will provide clues as to how he did it for stocks and commodities. Thus, my main goal for this book is to take an in depth look at the forecasts and statements that Gann makes in this article, and to offer explanations as to how he was able to come to these conclusions. This article will force us to look at subjects such as arithmancy or numerology, periodicity, cycles, and geometry to analyze its contents. Although this work is brief and to the point, it is my hope that this will throw light on the numerous theories written about Gann techniques and methods, and induce further research into the concepts presented herein.
