Business Volume Curve Png

13 points above the normal line. This was a rise of 27 points in all for the Business Curve or business volume foe the year. During the last six months of 1915, Uranus was in conjunction with the North Node, and Jupiter was in a favorable semi-sextile aspect to both Uranus and the North Node.

During all of 1916ยป the Business Curve remained between 13 and 16 points above normal. On July 4, 1916, the North Node passed into Capricorn which lifted the technical position of the Business Curve slightly, although its "Normal" position was still under the normal line. Favorable secondary factors, however, lifted the Business Curve to its above normal position during this period. Jupiter was in Aries during most of this year and therefore was passing over the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart, This was an indication of booming industrial activity. Jupiter's transit over this point every 12 years has usually marked a prosperity period in business. activity or the beginning of such a period in financial and economic history.

The first half of 1917 was marked by a continuation of the high business volume of 1916 and the Business Curve remained around 14 points above normal. On June 30, 1917, Jupiter moved into Gemini, the sign which is co-ruler of the United States. In December, 1917, Saturn came within orb of an unfavorable opposition aspect (180 degrees) with Uranus. This brought about a 5 point drop in the Business Curve which was followed by a decrease of 2 more points in January and February, 1918. These two planets moved out of orb until August, 1918. The presence of this unfavorable secondary factor the last half of 1918 should have taken the Business Curve down sharply, if it had not been, for the fact that the North Node was in Sagittarius where it had been since January 22, 1918. In this position the North Node was in favorable aspect to both Saturn and Uranus, This mitigated the influence of the unfavorable Saturn and Uranus aspect to a great extent

The effect of the unfavorable Saturn-Uranus aspect was felt during the first six months of 1919 when the Business Curve dropped to 8 points below normal. There was a temporary up turn during July and August, 1919, when Uranus formed a favorable trine aspect (120 degrees) with Pluto. This favorable secondary factor lifted the Curve to 7 points above normal.

The North Node passed out of Sagittarius into Scorpio August 10, 1919, lifting the technical position of the Business Curve to the normal line. Scorpio is one of the transition points on the Business Cycle Chart. As the North Node passes through Scorpio and Libra it marks a two year transition period when the Curve starts its five year trend from normal to high on the Business Cycle Chart. Unfavorable secondary factors can lower the natural position of the Curve from 1% to 20%. The Business Curve dropped five points through the fall of 1919.

The Business Curve shot upward 11 points above normal during January and February, 1920, under the inflationary influence of Jupiter in conjunction with Neptune, semi-sextile Saturn and semi-sextiie Pluto. This upturn was short-lived, however, for in March and April of 1920, the Business Curve dropped seven points due to the fact that Saturn had come within orb of the unfavorable 180 degree angle (opposition aspect) with Uranus. The Business Curve remained from four to five points above normal through August, 1920, when the Curve turned sharply downward. This down turn of the Business Curve, which remained below the normal line for the next twenty months, was the beginning of the "Primaiy Post-War Depression/'
