The most important factor in determining a shift in the stock market is a solar eclipse. This occurs when the Sun and Moon are conjunct with the North (Rahu) or the South (Ketu) Nodes of the Moon. A solar eclipse occurs every six months either in Rahu or Ketu.
An eclipse is very unpredictable, but one thing is for sure — they cause reverses. A Ketu eclipse causes a down trend in the market, whereas a Rahu eclipse will cause an up trend. The shift begins to move toward the following eclipse. Planets conjoined or aspecting these eclipse points flavor the effects. The sign (sidereal) the eclipse falls in has great emphasis on what kinds of stocks will rise or fall.
A station of a planet is of paramount importance. This will magnify that planet’s effect. As the planet changes direction, the planetary effect shifts. Retrograde planets bring stock down. When the planet goes direct, the stock will begin to rise.
A planet is strong when it is either stationary, or it is conjunct or opposite a recent eclipse point. The planet that rules the type of stock must be identified. For the business or stock to do well, this planet must be strong. Always choose a first trade chart that is compatible with your own chart. Look for positive connections between both charts.
SUN: Because the first trade charts always open at 9:30 AM and 10:00 AM until September 30,1985 in New York City, the Sun will always be around the 11th house. The Sun can be about the reputation of the stock. The Sun can also represent the president or CEO of the company.
- If the Sun is in hard aspect to Uranus, the stock will tend to fluctuate.
- Connections between the natal Sun and Pluto symbolize a powerful mover on the exchange. Its price fluctuation will affect the whole industry.
MOON: The Moon represents the public or masses. It rules food and restaurants. It has to do with services that care for people such as hospitals and retirement facilities. Transits to the Moon can cause erratic trading patterns.
- Natal charts with Moon/Uranus connections cause irregular price movements.
- Moon/Saturn connections bring stability.
MERCURY: Mercury rules all forms of communication and education, including telephones, television, writing and publications. It also deals with any form of travel, such as airlines, cars, and shipping or mail. Mercury can cause swift movement in a stock. It attracts mention in the press, and rumors may move the stock.
VENUS: Venus rules over products that enhance beauty, i.e. cosmetics, as well as theater, painting and flowers. Transits to natal Venus can bring stock moves resulting from agreements and mergers.
MARS: Mars rules machinery and mechanics, as well as fire, knives and war. It adds energy to the trading of a stock and will give rise to a stock. Mars in aspect to Uranus causes erratic changeable stocks.
JUPITER: Jupiter rules over legal matters and justice, higher education, and government rulings. It is expansive and signifies growth. Jupiter will bring a stock up as it aspects planets in a chart.
SATURN: Saturn rules over land, livestock and farming, as well as geriatrics and death. It can be a stabilizing influence or it can be depressing. Saturn will lower the price of a stock as it passes over planets.
URANUS: Uranus rules over aircraft, computers, electricity and technology, as well as trends and futuristic fads. Uranus is extremely volatile. Stations of Uranus are among the best movers of stock prices, next to eclipses.
NEPTUNE: Neptune rules liquids of all kinds, including oil, gasoline, natural resources, water, and anything to do with the shipping industry. It also rules drugs, both legitmate pharmaceuticals and illicit drugs. It can also signify deception and cheating. This planet can be tricky and must be watched carefully. Its station will cause an up-trend when transiting a planet.
PLUTO: Pluto is monumental or explosive. It rules atomic energy. It is about control and power. It rules money and s.e.x. Pluto’s transit can cause takeovers or mergers.
