Winning with Astrology

Astrological Cycles

Winning and losing, whether it involves speculation in the financial markets, gambling, sports competitions, or even court cases, occurs in predictable cycles based on astrology. Practically everyone recognizes when he or she is on a winning streak; everything just seems to flow the right way. Of course, the converse is also true. Becoming aware in advance of your own cycles for profit or loss, and winning or losing, can help you plan and navigate your endeavors with greater success.

Astrology – the Missing Link

Before you put your own time or money on the line, it is essential that you check out what your own astrological cycles are telling you. Professional speculators, regardless of what they speculate on, have also mastered the art of self-discipline, use strict money management, and have a valid system that puts the odds in their favor. This is what separates them from the amateurs. Astrology is the missing link in any system that will dramatically increase your winning percentage. It does, however, require discipline on your part to follow it. Here is a brief lesson involving the basics of astrology and some of the things I look for in determining your future cycles.

Astrology is a symbolic language, and certain planets are associated with luck and money, and others are associated with losses and setbacks. The same thing applies with the different aspects of astrology. For example, the lucky money planets traditionally are Venus and Jupiter. If you combine these planets in a favorable aspect with the planet Pluto, for example, then you have the potential for big luck and money. The planet Pluto is associated with big money and power. You combine Venus or Jupiter in a favorable aspect with the planet Uranus, and it can bring sudden and unexpected luck and money. The planet Uranus is connected with surprises among other things.

Astrology and Speculation

The Sun, in my opinion, is also treated as a benefic planet and is very important for speculators, as it is the natural ruler of the sign Leo and the 5th house of speculation in astrology. The Sun also corresponds to the person in charge or whom the spotlight is shining on. The Sun represents the Ego, your true self filled with inspiration, creativity, and vitality. Stressful aspects to or from the Sun can bring disharmony with one’s inner or outer being, and cause the Ego to become out of balance. A well-balanced person is always humble and keeps things in proper perspective. An over-inflated ego can be one of the biggest causes for loss in the business of speculation.

Mercury is the communication planet that governs the conscious thinking process. It is also considered a neutral planet and thus takes on the shadings of the other planets in aspect. Transits to or from Mercury can indicate how well you are communicating and reasoning. For example, Mercury in stressful aspect to Jupiter or Neptune can bring foolishness and poor judgment calls. In challenging aspect to Saturn, can bring pessimism and disagreements. In harmonious aspect to Uranus, can bring flashes of intuition and quick reasoning and understanding.

Mars and Saturn, the Malefics

Mars and Saturn, traditionally are considered the malefics, and can bring losses and setbacks. Mars can also be a big trigger and timer for positive things depending on the planets involved in the aspect. Stressful transits to or from Saturn can bring hard lessons and setbacks. It is equally important to understand when not to take a risk as well as the best times to do so. If you proceed forward with a hard aspect involving Saturn, it is like attempting to drive through an intersection when the light is red! Saturn is the stop sign or red light that is really there to protect you. This can frustrate a lot of people that want instant gratification or want things now. Patience, another Saturnian word, is necessary when you are going through this kind of cycle to avoid unnecessary losses or setbacks.

Astrology Plus Discipline – a Winning Combination

The lower octave of Neptune is a planet associated with delusions, disappointment, and addictive forms of behavior. In fact, if someone was born with Neptune forming stressful aspects, they can have an addictive personality, and can easily break the rules and discipline necessary to win in the long run. Like I mentioned earlier, astrology won’t help someone unless they can use it in a disciplined way. Obsessive and compulsive people will always break the rules because of fantasy, (Neptune), which always leads to disappointment. The higher octave of Neptune however can bring inspiration and faith that is always helpful once a good system for winning is in place.

The Moon is the fastest moving planet, (we treat it as a planet because we are looking at things geocentrically from the earth’s perspective). The Moon represents our moods and feelings at any given moment and is also an important timer for when things can occur in our lives. Favorable aspects from the Moon in your chart during the day are usually associated with winning or feelings of well-being.

The Aspects

The aspects in astrology are divisions of the circle by degrees and have symbolic meanings too. The conjunction, (0 degrees), can be positive if planets like Venus or Jupiter are involved, or negative if planets like Saturn or Neptune are involved. The sextile (60 degrees), and trine (120 degrees) are harmonious and favorable aspects. The planets involved in the aspect will determine how favorable. The stressful aspects that can produce obstacles and setbacks are the semi-square (45 degrees), square (90 degrees), sesqui-square (135 degrees), inconjunct (150 degrees), and opposition, (180 degrees). However, I have found that some of these aspects are also associated with significant wins as well, if there are sextiles and trines also present at the same time.

The Zodiac Signs

The sign a planet is in also colors the way it is expressed. For example the fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, give a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and optimism. The earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, give a lot of practicality but can also be prone to pessimism like the water signs. The water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, are emotional, protective and prone to mood swings when speculating. This can affect their decision-making and ability to follow their system. The air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, are mental, communicative signs, and it is these types can out smart or strategize the other side. The cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, give a lot of energy and action. The fixed signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, give strength, endurance, and stamina. The mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, give adaptability and ingenuity, but also can be indecisive.

The Houses

The houses in astrology correspond to the different areas of one’s life. Here are some of the houses as examples. The 5th house is the house of speculation, games, and competitions. The 10th house corresponds to ones public image, status and success. The 12th house is the house of secrets and ones private life. Frequently I have observed that the 12th house can block energy and bring frustration and disappointment when speculating. The 2nd, 5th, 8th, and 11th houses are considered your money houses and are an important element in winning or making money.

As you can imagine, integration of all these astrological factors requires skill and expertise from a seasoned astrologer to determine the right combinations that will increase your odds of winning.

MY PHILOSOPHY

Astrology is a universal language and body of knowledge that is thousands of years old. To quote Carl Jung, “Astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.” Astrology is not about fate and does not necessarily have a “cause and effect” sort of relationship in our lives. True astrology, of course, is not based solely on your so called “Sun sign” that you may read about in books or the newspaper either. It is a very complex and symbolic universal language of life. The interpretive side of astrology is an art form that takes many years of practice to master. It can provide you with important answers, insight, and understanding into many aspects of life. True knowledge leads to greater freedom. Your personal birth chart, a map of the planetary positions at the time and place of birth, is a reflection of your own personal life at one level or another. As the old saying goes, “as above so below.” Astrology provides information about potential avenues of self expression and experiences that can take place. If we learn life lessons and let go of the ego and false belief systems, we can live a more harmonious and fruitful life. The spiritually illumined mind lives by grace. Natural talents and gifts we are born with can either be expressed at their highest potential or could also lay dormant and remain untapped in our lives. The choice is ours. The level of expression of our personal birth charts and how we experience our current planetary life cycles or transits, depends more our own state of development or level of consciousness we have attained than planetary symbols on a piece of paper. Our state of consciousness governs our lives not the stars. The catch 22 is that ignorance of our own unique psychological and astrological makeup, and planetary cycles does not lead to higher consciousness. We only can gain more freedom and happiness by increasing our awareness on a psychological, astrological, and spiritual level. Welcome to my world of astrology. I have been practicing professionally since 1994 and have read thousands of charts for clients. I have the experience and expertise in many different branches of astrology to help you with your specific needs. I look forward to being of service and assisting you on your evolutionary path and towards the attainment of your goals!

The Coming Collapse of the U.S. Dollar and Federal Reserve?

Here’s another newsflash you may have read about before. About one hundred years ago, just before the Federal Reserve act of 1913, our nation was the most prosperous in the world. The U.S. had virtually no national debt. We had the largest middle class in the world and Mom stayed home to raise the kids!

What many Americans are still clueless about is that there is nothing “Federal” about the Federal Reserve and they have no reserves. They are a private corporation owned by private bankers. To illustrate how this monetary system operates. Let’s assume the U.S. government needs 10 billion dollars. The FRB (Federal Reserve Bank) prints 10 billion from their printing press and loans it to the government in exchange for a 10 billion bond. The government now owes 10 billion to the FRB, and to add insult to injury, owes interest on top of it. In fact, most of our taxes presently go towards paying only the interest from the debt we owe! In my opinion, the Federal Reserve system of banking is simply a monetary system designed to control and enslave the U.S. government and its citizens.

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 came into law on Dec. 23rd, 1913 at 06:02PM, in Washington, DC. To quote former President Woodrow Wilson:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

-Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence.

Astrologically, the Sun was at 1½ degrees of Capricorn forming an opposition to Pluto at 00 degrees of Cancer on Dec. 23, 1913. The other chart I use is for when the first Federal Reserve Bank in New York opened for business on Nov. 16, 1914 at 10:00AM in New York. In this chart, Saturn is forming a conjunction to Pluto at about 1½ degrees of Cancer. In the United States chart for July 4th, 1776, the planet Venus is almost exactly at the same degree at 2 degrees of Cancer! Venus represents the money and things of value. The FRB Saturn/Pluto forms a conjunction to the USA Venus. My astrological interpretation of this aspect: the FRB was created to devalue the US dollar and bankrupt the United States.

For astrological forecasting purposes, we want to look for “shared degrees” of planets in important birth charts. The Sun, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto are from 0 – 2 degrees in the cardinal signs of Capricorn and Cancer in all of these charts. Transiting Pluto is already at these early degrees in the sign of Capricorn since the end of November, 2008. Let the games begin.

Astrologers have been talking about the great “cardinal climax” happening from 2010 – 2012. It almost sounds like a rated “X” movie! This is when Saturn in Libra forms a T-square configuration with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn lasting until the year 2012. What are the most significant time periods is when Saturn and Uranus cross the 0 – 2 degree cardinal points forming hard 90 degree aspects to the FRB Sun, Saturn, Pluto, and USA Venus. When this occurs, it will be what is called a “cardinal cross” when four planets are all 90 degrees from each other in the cardinal signs.

Saturn is the next planet to join the action. Saturn crosses 0 – 2 degrees of Libra in the month of November, 2009. I would expect something of significance in the financial markets and with the U.S. dollar. The dollar will probably be under more downward pressure. This is also the first pass of transiting Saturn in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn.

The planet Saturn turns retrograde again in January 2010 and will cross 0 – 2 degrees of Libra while retrograde once more in the month of March, 2010. But what is of most significance is during the summer of 2010 when Uranus first enters the sign of Aries. This occurs beginning the end of May, 2010 through the middle of August, 2010. Jupiter also enters the sign of Aries conjunct Uranus in the month of June.

On July 21st, 2010, the planet Saturn enters the sign of Libra, leaving the sign of Virgo for good for another 29 years. Let’s throw a going away party! During the months of July and August of 2010, the planets Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn will all be at the very early degrees of the cardinal signs forming a cardinal cross to the FRB Sun, Saturn, Pluto, and USA Venus! (See attached quad-wheel). This is a once in a lifetime transit that may cause a complete collapse or very serious devaluation of the US dollar as we know it and major crisis within the Federal Reserve. Be prepared and protected! We can prosper by being in the right sectors that perform very well during times of inflation and a weak dollar such as precious metals and commodities. Got Gold?
