Since the late seventies and the early eighties, jyotisha has been recognized as a viable tool that can offer accurate and reliable insight into the movements of the world's financial markets. Many notable professional astrologers, both in the East and the West, have taken to advising their clients in this domain. It has been recorded that many of these financial astrologers have outperformed their more conventional counterparts in the finance profession.
We can know swings of the market years in advance from calculating planetary movement. For example, when there is a major aspect between Jupiter and Saturn we have a depressed economy, and hence a depressed market as a whole. This occurs approximately every sixty years. Minor aspects between these two planets which occur approximately every twenty years also have a noticeable effect on the markets. Some examples of aspects:
1. Jupiter/Saturn opposition in Gemini/ Sagittarius 1930/32. The Great Depression.
2. Twenty years later, 1950/51, Jupiter/Saturn opposition in Pisces/Virgo. Post war difficulties and their effect on the market.
3. Twenty years later we come to the early 70's, Jupiter/Saturn opposition in Scorpio/Taurus. These were also testing and challenging times for the world economy.
4. Twenty years further down the road we arrive at the late eighties and early nineties. We had a repeat of the thirties opposition in Gemini/Sagittarius. This reminded us of the Great Depression to some extent. High unemployment, high interest rates, etc.
Many astrologers have observed, in particular L. McWhitters earlier this century, that movements of Rahu, the moon's north node, through the zodiac have a repeatable and conspicuous effect on the financial markets of the world. When Rahu transits through Leo, the markets will surge. Then from Leo to Aquarius, markets gradually become bearish (drop)--the lowest being at Aquarius. Once again from Aquarius through Leo they become bullish (rise)--peaking at Leo. This particular effect has been more obvious in the UK market than any other. Rahu entered Leo in July 1997 and will remain there until January 1999, thus promising a growing economy and more upbeat market in general during this period. There are other such indicative factors which contribute reliably and recurringly towards knowing the direction and movements of the world economy and market factors. It would not be exaggerating to say that jyotisha can be used as a definitive tool by economists to better know market behavior, and much in advance.
Jyotisha is equally beneficial in corporate situations, answering many perplexing questions. It can show a company what direction it is heading, whether it should expand, if a merger proposition should be looked at favorably or adversely, if the management structure should be altered, and more.
