Astrological phenomena can drive price action and create trend changes across both short and longer
term time horizons. The below Videso book has introduced you to an extensive range of astrological phenomena and shown you numerous examples to illustrate how these phenomena impact various markets.
In this article we will discuss about “important aspects” in astrology. These are astrological aspects between planets lasting a long period of time (at least 3 or 4 months) and having a strong influence over people, economy and of course over financial markets. These astrological aspects form usually between strong planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto). Because these planets move slower, the aspect lasts longer. This is why financial evolution or any other activity on Earth is influenced strongly.
What is an astrological aspect between planets and how do they form?
When we view the planets from Earth, they all rotate at different speeds around the Sun.
Aspects are the various geometric angles, measured in degrees, minutes and seconds that are formed between planets, or some other point in the horoscope, as they move through the 360 degrees.
A conjunction is an angle of approximately 0. Conjunctions are said to be the most powerful aspect, mutually intensifying the effects of the planets involved; they are major point in an individual’s chart. A planet in very close conjunction to the Sun (within 17 minutes of arc, or only about 0.28°) is said to be cazimi, an ancient astrological term meaning “in the heart” (of the Sun). For example, “Venus cazimi” means Venus is in conjunction with the Sun with an orb of less than ≈ 0.28°. Such a planetary position is a conjunction of great strength. A related term is combust, applicable when the planet in conjunction with the Sun is only moderately close to the Sun. In the case of combust, specific orb limit will depend on the particular planet in conjunction with the Sun.
An opposition is an angle of 180° (1/2 of the 360° ecliptic). Oppositions are said to be the second most powerful aspect. It resembles the conjunction although the difference between them is that the opposition is fundamentally relational. All important axes in astrology are essentially oppositions.
A square is an angle of 90° (1/4 of the 360° ecliptic, or 1/2 of an opposition [180°]). In the square, it is usually the outer or superior planet that has an effect on the inner or inferior one. The square’s energy is strong and usable but has a tension that needs integration between 2 different areas of life, or offers a choice point where an important decision needs to be made that involves an opportunity cost.
A trine is an angle of 120° (1/3 of the 360° ecliptic).The trine relates to what is natural and indicates harmony and ease. The trine may involve talent or ability which is innate. The trine has been traditionally assumed to be extremely beneficial. When involved in a transit, the trine involves situations that emerge from a current or past situation in a natural way
- The aspects indicate the energies between the planets and houses, and traditionally the “easy” aspects of Sextile and Trine indicate a more harmonious or beneficial energy
- The “important” aspects of the Square and Opposition considered to represent challenges and balance needed to be found.
- A Conjunction is a very dynamic aspect and can be considered either positive or negative depending on the planets involved.
However, aspects, like planets are merely representations of energy and it is what we do with it that is either beneficial or not as we all have free will.
With the information , I sincerely hope you will now feel compelled to makeastrology a companion to technical chart
analysis as you trade the markets. I further hope that as you do so, you will come to view the financial markets in a
very different way.
