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 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 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.
