Astro-Trading the S&P
Editor & Publisher,
While many trading tools and strategies can
improve our chances of success with the S&P, applying astrological insights to the market gives us a unique
perspective-- and the proven results that only come with the astro-trading advantage.
In my own experience as a trader and researcher,
and in my work as a teacher and astro-trading coach, I've found that there are three basic approaches which can
help us identify potentially profitable astro-trading opportunities in the S&P:
1. Examining the impact of single planets
on trends and reversal points.
2. Reviewing planetary combinations to
develop effective hypotheses for back-testing and active trading.
3. Discovering connections between
planetary price lines and key levels of support and resistance in trading.
Although each approach has its own particular
nuances and variations, a brief review will help illustrate their value for astro-traders in identifying
high-value trading opportunities.
The planet Neptune recently entered Pisces, where
it will continue to make a slow passage through this zodiac sign until 2025. Because Neptune moves so slowly,
taking about 171 years to complete a single trip through the full span of the zodiac, we face real restrictions
when we try to back-test its influence on the markets. Even so, we recently witnessed a quick visit of Neptune
to Pisces between April 4 and August 4, 2011, giving us a chance to observe its potential correspondences with
The S&P had been in an aggressive uptrend
prior to this move by Neptune, but it didn't take long for a shift in market dynamics. The S&P declined into
mid-April, rallied into early May, and sold off into late June. This was followed by a double-top in July and a
steep decline into August 9. Overall the S&P lost about 10 percent of its value during Neptune's stay in
Pisces in 2011, as illustrated by this astro-trading chart from
When we examine the interactions of pairs of
planets, we can often gain surprising insights into market dynamics. During 2011 the S&P responded
particularly strongly to eighth-harmonic interactions of Mars and Jupiter. Their significance for astro-trading
the S&P was quite remarkable.
The trading high for the year came on May 2, with
a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in effect. There was a 45º angle between the two planets on July 22, marking an
important trading top. And on October 4 the S&P hit its low for the year, with Mars and Jupiter in a 90º
Planetary Price Lines
The ability to translate planetary positions and
relationships into planetary price lines on a market chart gives us one of the most powerful tools of
astro-trading. Planetary price lines provide astrologically-based levels of support and resistance that can be
combined with conventional technical indicators to refine trading strategies.
The theory and mathematics behind planetary price
lines are detailed in the books The Universal Clock, available from P.A.S. Inc., and inGann
Secrets Revealed, available from Amazon.com. Detailed instructions on the practical application of
planetary price lines in trading are in the DVD program Profitable Trading with Planetary Timing,
available from HarmonicResearchAssociates.com.
Trading the S&P provides an endless stream of
opportunities for profits-- and an endless supply of sobering reminders that the market always knows more than
we do. But with the astro-trading advantage, we can learn the hidden lessons of the market and open the door to
more consistent profits!
