The Sun and Moon are not strictly planets in an astronomical sense, but in this work they are so labelled in order to simplify matters.

It also will be noticed that two planets have rulership over two signs each. This is due to the fact that there are only ten planets known. Like the chemist, we use what we have, although

we know at some time two planets will be discovered which rule Taurus and Gemini. However, every planet has a sign in which it is almost as strong as in the sign it rules; therefore, it is all right to use Venus and Mercury as the rulers of Taurus and Gemini until research in astronomy gives us the two missing planets.

It is also necessary to know a few elementary facts regarding the Chart of the New York Stock Exchange. These facts apply to all charts, and they should be learned carefully.

Each chart has twelve sections, one for each sign of the zodiac. The signs placed on these twelve cusps or spokes are arranged counter-clockwise, and so are the planets. Each sign has 30 degrees in it and the degree which falls on the cusp tells where a planet is to be placed on the chart. For instance, on the example chart for March the Sun (0) and Moon ( 5 ) fell in 10 degrees Pisces. Since this degree falls before 24-28 degrees Pisces (K) which is the sign on the tenth cusp, the Sun and Moon fall in the 9th section of the chart instead of the 10th section or "house/* The planet Uranus, on this chart, fell in 10 degrees Taurus ( tf ) and since zero degrees Taurus falls on the 11th section of the chart, Uranus actually falls in the 11th section or "house/' (The twelve sections of a chart are called "houses".)

It sometimes happens that a sign will be intercepted in a "house", making two signs with their corresponding planetary rulers, governors of that particular section. This is due to the fact that charts set up for different latitudes "cut" the zodiac into different sized sections.

Most charts will have degrees and minutes on the cusp of the 1st house or ascendant, but it will be noticed that the Chart of the New York Stock Exchange has the connotation "14-17 degrees Cancer (S)" on the first house or ascendant and the notation 24-28 degrees Pisces (x) on die tenth house or mid-heaven of the same Chart. Do not let this confuse you. It merely means that these degrees have been found to include a sensitive area in connection with stock market trends whenever subject to planetary transits.

Most of the terms and words used in this work, not generally used in the average person's vocabulary, are included in Chapter VII, entitled "Glossary of Terms", where they can be found for ready reference at any time. An explanation here, however, was deemed advisable, inasmuch as few persons can understand a chart who have not had some instruction along the above lines.

The Chart of the New York Stock Exchange becomes mote comprehensible with the above facts in mind.

Any month up to 1950 may be forecast for any time in advance by placing the lunation Planetary positions affecting the month in question around a copy of the New York Stock Exchange Chart

After the planets have been placed around the chart in their proper house positions, the following facts must be sought:

(1) If there are any major planets placed in the 10th house or mid-heaven of the chart; if there are any planets placed in the 1st house or ascendant of the chart; and if there are any planets in the 4th house or 7th house of the chart. The angles listed here are given in the order of their importance; that is, 10th, 1st, 4th and 7th, in diagnosing market conditions.

If there are major planets (that is, all the planets except Venus and Mercury) in the houses or sections mentioned they become so-called "key" planets, for aspects to them at a lunation become highly important in making market forecasts.

Planets on the mid-heaven or 10th house are the most important of all in making judgment of stock trends for the coming month. These planets are to be taken into account along with the two rulers of the 10th house or mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart. These rulers are Neptune and Mars, because they rule the signs Pisces and Aries respectively, which are placed on this section of the chart.

(2) If the lunation or New Moon is in favorable or unfavorable aspect to Neptune or Mars, the two rulers of the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart; if the lunation or New Moon is in favorable aspect to the "key" planet or in unfavorable aspect to the "key" planet (if there is one).

(3) The last point, which should be noted particularly, in connection with market conditions is the fact whether Saturn and Uranus are in favorable aspect to each other; in unfavorable aspect to each other; or not in aspect at all.

If Saturn and Uranus are in favorable aspect with each other that is, placed 120, 60, or 30 degrees from each other, the Stock Market will rise for the extent of this aspect The aspects are given in the order of their strength or importance. That is, the trine aspect, sextile aspect and semi-sextile aspect.

If Saturn and Uranus are in unfavorable aspect with each other, that is, placed in conjunction, 180, 90, 135 or 45 degrees from each other, the trend of stocks will be down for the extent of the aspect.

The conjunction aspect between Saturn and Uranus, if powerfully aspected by Jupiter or Neptune, from a favorable angle, is variable and may or may not point out a drop in the Stock Market. The unfavorable aspects between Saturn and Uranus are listed in the order of their strength or importance, that is, the conjunction, opposition, square, sesqui-quadrate and semi-square aspect There are 360 degrees in a chart and it is an easy matter to determine whether planets are in favorable or unfavorable aspect to each other by simple arithmetic However, for readers who are not mathematically inclined, the following table will give the information whether Saturn and Uranus are in favorable or unfavorable aspect at any time. This information can be used to determine the relationship between any other of the planets as well.

Planets which are in the same sign of the zodiac, and within 9 degrees of each other, are in conjunction aspect. The symbol for the conjunction aspect is 6 > (For example, a planet in 2 degrees Aries and a planet in 7 degrees aspect are in conjunction aspect, because they are within 9 degrees of each other. A planet in 1 degree Aries and a planet in 10 degrees Aries are in conjunction aspect because they are within 9 degrees of each other, etc.).

Planets which are placed one sign apart, or 30 degrees apart, are in semi-sextile aspect. Allow an orb of 3 degrees either way. The symbol for the semi-sextile aspect is ¥ .

Planets which are two signs apart are in sextile aspect (60 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other. The sign for the sextile aspect is r^c.

Planets which are one and a half signs apart are in semi-square aspect (45 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other. The symbol for the semi-square aspect is

Planets which are placcd three signs apart are in square aspect (90 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other. The symbol for the square aspect is

Planets which are four signs apart are in trine aspect (120 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other. The symbol for the trine aspect is A-

Planets which are four and a half signs apart are in sesqui-quadrate aspect (135 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other. The symbol for the sesqui-quadrate aspect is

Planets which are six signs apart are in opposition aspect (180 degrees), if they are within 9 degrees of each other. The symbol for the opposition aspect is 8.

Planets which are seven signs apart are in semi-sextile aspect (210 degrees—180 degrees plus 30 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other.

Planets which are seven and a half signs apart are in semi-square aspect (225 degrees—180 degrees plus 45 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other.

Planets which are 8 signs apart are in trine aspect (240 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other.

Planets which are 9 signs apart are in square aspect (270 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other.

Planets which are 10 signs apart are in sextile aspect (300 degrees), if they are within 5 degrees of each other.

Planets which are 11 signs apart are in semi-sextile aspect (330 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other.

Planets which are 10 and a half signs apart are in sesqui-

quadrate aspect (315 degrees), if they are within 3 degrees of each other.

This table of aspects and angles, with their symbols, will give all the information necessary in reading a chart. The lunation or New Moon aspects have already been worked out and they are given in Chapter VI of this book along with the planetary positions of each New Moon.

After the planets have been placed around the example Chart of the New York Stock Exchange for March, 1938, several factors are noticeable, (See Figure I on page 104),

(1) The first factor is that the depressing planet Saturn i* placed in the mid-heaven or 10th house of the chart.

(2) Mars, one of the planetary rulers of the mid-heaven of the chart, is in the 10th house or mid-heaven.

(3) The aspects in force at the lunation showed no aspects to either Mars or Saturn, but the lunation did show Neptune in opposition aspect to the lunation (conjunction of the Sun and Moon).

Neptune is one of the rulers of the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart, and the fact that the lunation formed an unfavorable opposition aspect to it showed a slump in stock prices. Since the lunation made no aspect to either Mars or Saturn, their influence would not be brought into effect at this time. Unfavorable aspects to Neptune at a lunation, especially, if no favorable aspect between Saturn and Uranus was in force at the same time, usually indicates a sharp break in stock market prices.

Saturn and Uranus, although one sign apart, were not in orb of aspect for a semi-sextile aspect, since they were six degrees apart. Three degrees apart is the maximum orb for this aspect, as is given in the above tabulation.

The conclusion reached, through this method of forecasting the trend of the Stock Market, was that prices were going lower at this time and that March might possibly witness a slump or sharp break during the month.

What actually happened, as any one can verify by reference

FIG. I—THIS CHART FORECASTS A DOWNTURN IN THE

STOCK MARKET

Aspects or Angles in force at this Lunation are:

Sun and Moon Opposition Neptune Sun and Moon Sextiie Uranus Sun and Moon Semi-Sextile Jupiter Sua and Moon Conjunction Venus to the newspapers for March, stocks went lower during the entire month, and on March 29, 1938, as the Moon passed over the degree of the lunation of March 2, 1938, the full force of the unfavorable aspect to Neptune was brought into play and stocks plunged downward in a selling wave that hit three year lows. Stocks were at their 1932 level.

For an "example month" when an upturn in stock market prices was indicated (at the lunation occurring previous to the upturn) we will take the month of June, 1938.

By turning to the EPHEMERIS in Chapter VI, we see that a lunation or New Moon occurred on May 29, 1938, and on June 27, 1938. Since we want the lunation covering the month of June, 1938, we will take the lunation of May 29, 1938. (The New Moon of June 27, 1938 would cover the month of July, 1938.)

The planetary positions on May 29, 1938, were as follows: "Sun 6 degrees Gemini; Moon 6 degrees Gemini; Neptune 18 degrees Virgo, retrograde; Uranus 15 degrees Taurus; Saturn 14 degrees Aries; Jupiter 1 degree Pisces; Mars 23 degrees Gemini; Venus 5 degrees Cancer; Mercury 13 degrees Taurus. The Moon's North Node was in 27 degrees Scorpio. Aspects in force at this lunation were Sun and Moon semi-square Saturn; square Jupiter; semi-sextile Venus."

When these planetary positions are placed around the New York Stock Exchange Chart (see Figure 11 on page 106), we find three notable facts;

(1) The lunation (conjunction of the Sun and Moon every twenty-eight days) made no aspect to Neptune or Mars, the two planetary rulers of the New York Stock Exchange Chart's mid-heaven or 10th house.

(2) The two planets which point out major trends in the Stock Market, Saturn and Uranus, were in close semi-sextile aspect (30 degrees) which is favorable.

(3) At the same time Mercury was in conjunction with Uranus; and both Mercury and Uranus were in a very favorable trine (120 degrees) aspect with Neptune. Mercury also was in

FIG. II—THIS CHART FORECASTS AN UPTURN IN THE

STOCK MARKET

Aspects in force at this Lunation are:

Sun and Moon Semi-Square Saturn Sun and Moon Square Jupiter Sun and Moon Semi-Sektüe Venus favorable semi-sextile aspect to the very powerful planet Saturn.

Favorable aspects between Saturn and Uranus always indicate an upturn in the stock market which will last as long as the aspect is in force. All aspects between Saturn and Uranus are very significant in studying stock market trends. The semi-sextile aspect did not come into effect between these two planets until they had become almost exact due to the fact that the semi-sextile aspect is only a minor favorable aspect and the orb of its influence does not extend beyond an area of three degrees (see the tabulation of aspects and their orb of influence listed in this Chapter).

One fact should be pointed out here. Raphael's Ephemeris lists the lunation of May 29, 1938, as in semi-square aspect to Saturn. They allow large orbs of influence and in this work we allow only three degrees for a semi-square aspect orb; therefore, although listed as such in the Ephemeris the lunation did not actually form a semi-square aspect to Saturn, unless wide orbs of influence are used, and these have not been found advisable iti studying stock market trends.

Although the upturn in the stock market was indicated for the month of June, the rise did not begin until June 20, 1938. On this date the Moon was passing over the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart, It is a noticeable fact that when marked daily changes occur in the stock market, such as a sharp drop or a sharp rise, the Moon is usually in one of the angles of the New York Stock Exchange Chart, that is in the signs Pisces, Aries, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, or Capricorn.

Mars is usually involved when there is an active stock market either for buying or selling. In this case we find that at the lunation of May 29, 1938, Mars was in 23 degrees Gemini and unaspected. Mercury which was in conjunction with Uranus and semi-sextile Saturn at the time of the lunation, reached 23-23 degrees Gemini, the place of Mars at the lunation over the weekend and came into play in stock market action Monday, June 20, 1938. Mercury was the planet which acted to bring the lunation indications into force, since it was the planet which aspected

Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune at the new Moon. If Saturn or Uranus had been strongly aspected by the lunation, the Moon's passage, or the Sun's passage, over 23-25 degrees Gemini, the place of Mars at the lunation, would have brought out the upturn in the stock market predicted May 29, 1938. This is further proof that the lunation was not in orb of a semi-square aspect with Saturn, in so far as this work is concerned, even though it is listed in the Ephemeris as such. Wide orbs do not work in forecasting stock market conditions and none should be used except those given in this Chapter; otherwise your market forecasting will go sadly awry.

Thus it is seen that the rise in the stock market averages was foretold by the fact that Saturn and Uranus came into favorable aspect with each other in June, 1938. This fact was pointed out at the previous lunation of May 29, 1938, by Mercury being in conjunction with Uranus; both planets being in semi-sextile aspect to Saturn, a key planet, since it is placed on the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart; and both Mercury and Uranus being in very favorable trine (120 degrees) aspect with Neptune, one of the rulers of the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart.

When Mercury reached the place of Mars, the other ruler of the mid-heaven of the New York Stock Exchange Chart, and a planet usually involved in active stock market buying and selling, on Monday, June 20, 1938, the stock market rise began.

Aspects between Saturn and Uranus govern major bull and bear markets, as well as secondary rises and slumps, and this upturn in the stock market will last as long as the favorable aspect between Saturn and Uranus is in force. The semi-sextile aspect between Saturn and Uranus has just half the force of the sextile aspect (60 degrees) which existed between Saturn and Uranus from March, 1935 and effected market conditions until August, 1937. Traders should keep this fact in mind. The Dow-Jones Industrial Averages stood at 107.74 May 31, 1938, and by July 2t 1938, had risen to 138.53* With a little practice, anyone who studies the rules laid down in this chapter can forecast die major upturns and downturns in the stock market averages. The monthly and daily trends of the stock market are easily forecast through the method and rules laid down in this chapter. Like any other subject, practice, in analysing market conditions through this method, makes for perfection and accuracy.

The rules laid down in this Chapter are particularly applicable for studying the fluctuations in the Dow-Jones Stock Market Averages.

This method of forecasting the trend of the stock market is in its infancy and offers unlimited possibilities for research and study. For the first time in history, it offers a method for forecasting economic cycles years, months and days in advance, which is based on natural law. The study of these rules will doubly repay anyone. It offers to the man with a small capital a chance for economic security. Above all, it teaches you when to get in and when to get out of the stock market.

All that is written in this book is not all there is to the subject. That would require many books to contain so vast an amount of economic history. It is, however, an attempt to place economic security within the reach of all through a method of planned investment and economic research.

No one can account for slumps and booms in reality. Any number of reasons are given out after the condition occurs explaining its reason for happening. This is all right as far as it goes, but our theory goes farther, it tells you in advance how to prevent the manifestation of an undesirable economic condition. Extremes are not desirable Booms are inevitably followed by depression and human suffering. This book points out a way for a more stable national security.
