Where's MY $100 Million? Financial Astrology Example & Discussion

I thought I would share an example of another successful financial horary analysis along with some discussion of these questions in general.

I had a client who had a very large position in Fedex stock and wanted to close it out, selling all of the stock. They called me in the evening, anticipating that the stock would drop at the opening of trading the next day.

Question: Should I sell $200,000 of Fedex stock tomorrow? [client
expected price to drop wanted to sell immediately]
Time Question Received & Understood: 8:09 pm CDT, April 23, 2009
Place Question Received & Understood: Iowa City, IA 41 N 39 91 W 31

The meaning of the astrological factors are fully explained in the
analysis below.

Astrological Factors Considered:

In this chart 7 Scorpio rises and it is Moon hour. As the Moon rules water signs by day and night the chart is radical or rooted which means it has internal signs of accuracy.

As Scorpio rises you are signified by Mars, who is highly dignified by sign and term in the 5th house.

The Moon signifies action and is peregrine and thus weak in the 6th house.

The 2nd house of money is ruled by Jupiter, who is dignified by term in the 4th house.

Jupiter, also rules the 5th house of speculation. Venus, in the final degree of Pisces, her exaltation and very slow, about to go into detriment, is in the 5th house.

The Moon sextiles Jupiter, significator of money. Mercury sextiles Mars, your significator.


Your significator Mars is very strong and in the 5th house of speculation. The 2nd house of money is ruled by Jupiter, natural ruler of wealth, who also rules the 5th house of speculation. The Moon sextiles Jupiter.

My previous methodology with this type of question, Should I sell my gold stocks? has been to look to the rulers of the 1st, 5th and 2nd, and if they are afflicted, then the stock drops. In this case the significators are strong so the stock should increase in value.

Ok, now before I get a rush of excited e-mails and calls, all hoping to strike it rich, let me add some caveats to this example and the gold stock example whose link appears above. I have never been able to get horary to work for trading, in particular day trading doesn't work. In other words I haven't been successful with the tactical use of horary for financial questions.

The situations when horary does seem to work are what might be termed strategic. "Should I go into stock market?" That works. "Should I liquidate my holdings?" that works, as we can see above. But "Should I sell X corp at 3 & 3/8s?" doesn't seem to work.

My view would be that the emotional punch is missing with trading questions. They just aren't important enough emotionally and are asked too frequently to make good horaries.

Another factor may be personal. Don't get me wrong, I like making money, but for some reason I have a personal distaste for the tactical trading questions. Maybe because they strike me as the middle & upper middle class equivalent of the blue collar folks that ask me about winning the lottery. Everyone hoping and dreaming for their salvation by the almighty dollar.

So far I have seen plenty of financial astrological trading systems. This is a great business to get into, by the way, because there is always a demand and people are willing to pay lots of money for it. I always wonder, however, why anyone would sell a system for making huge amounts of money, rather than just quietly using it themselves? Same thing I say to people that want to buy lottery talismans, if they work, why wouldn't I use them once, win the $100 million Powerball and retire? Why would I need to sell lottery talismans or stock/forex/futures etc, trading astrology?

Still, I think that astrology could be used for trading. I don't think horary works very well for it. The real problem is that any astrological system for trading that is available for sale clearly isn't amazing enough to keep quiet about! If it really worked on the massive scale people hoped for it would be a deep, dark secret.

Now this could simply be realistic in that it is likely that a true astrological trading system would have to be used in conjunction with good trading skills, knowledge and luck. It would give an edge, not guaranteed millions. But who wants that? The whole selling point is easy, quick millions!

So, the likely response to this post is going to be e-mails from those wondering how they can make millions with astrology and others with wonderful financial astrological techniques that they are very hopeful about but haven't quite worked the bugs out yet.

My advice is to look at your natal 2nd and 5th houses, if these house and their rulers aren't highly dignified, it ain't going to happen folks!

Hi Chris,

This is such an interesting take on the topic of financial astrology. As you say, it works best with financial know-how, and preferably a natal chart with positive financial indicators.

I think there is another point tucked away in the article - mechanical horaries, such as those asked day in/day out by day-traders - just do not work. The question just would not have the emotional impact, as you say.

Best wishes,
