The Accuracy of Financial Astrology

I received an email the other day from someone asking for the five most accurate financial astrologers which I found interesting. There are several well-known financial astrologers including Henry Weingarten who runs the “Astrologers Fund,” and Ray Merriman who is well-known in astrological circles as a master of market timing. Still, I was unable to find any histories of accuracy, although certainly claims of such accuracy are made.

The fact is, when dealing with predictions on financial cycles there are way too many variables to be able to predict accurately:

  1. The astrological cycles (transits and progressions) that the financial astrologer him/herself is experiencing.
  2. The cycles of the individual investor.
  3. The cycles of the individual companies being traded.
  4. The cycles of CEOs and other company leaders that instigate various behaviors that affect stock performance.

The only trends that are readily visible to the astrologer are the overall planetary cycles such as the kind that we examine in this column and others. Saturn influences tend to create depressions and Jupiter influences tend to provide expansion. Eclipses generally portend changes in the market, as do Uranus influences.

As I’ve written before here, and here, and here, and here, the stock market over the past year has defied all astrological predictions. Eclipse cycles, square of Saturn (disappointment) to Jupiter (optimism), and the square of Jupiter (expansion) to Uranus (sudden change) have all led astrologers to predict abrupt downturns in the markets beginning last summer. None of us counted on the power of the relentless optimism of Pluto and Jupiter traveling through Sagittarius that has kept the markets buoyant despite challenging technicals.

This doesn’t lessen the importance of astrology, but it does demonstrate the difficulty in making accurate financial predictions using these cycles.

Moon/Venus/Saturn line up with Regulus

Venus is still about ten degrees from an exact conjunction with Saturn but the Moon will conjunct Venus today heading towars Saturn and the fixed star Regulus.

I have never worked with the fixed stars but suddenly became fascinated with these stellar bodies over the past few months. I’ve purchased a couple of books on the subject and hope to be able to give you some more information as I learn about them myself. Meanwhile I’ve discovered that Regulus, the star associated with kings in the Leo constellation, is currently at 29 degrees 58 minutes, and will transition into Virgo sometime in the next few years.

I have no idea what this means, but it seems that when one of the brightest stars in the sky, the star that is associated with royalty and kingship, changes signs it could be an event of some significance!

Sleeping in spring oblivious of dawn
Everywhere I hear birds.
After the wind and rain last night
I wonder how many petals fell?

Eris is bigger than Pluto!

The new planet Eris has been found to be 27% larger than Pluto, causing some astronomers to joke about Pluto not being able to catch a break. As astrologers know, however, size doesn’t matter – despite it’s tiny size, Pluto packs a powerful wallop.

I have done just a little work with Eris in charts where it forms tight aspects to other planets and haven’t been able to get a clear sense of how it works. From the lack of published material on the subject, neither has anyone else! On the other hand, not every planet speaks to every astrologer, and many astrologers still do not work with Chiron. I’ll continue to report Eris news as I find it and please help me out by posting any links that you find!
