Indian Time Cycles And Market Forecasting: Cosmic Timing For Pinning Down Those Illusive Turns II

Within major cycles are sub-periods or subcycles that also unfold In a set sequential pattern.
The subcycle begins with planet ruling the major cycle and then continues in sequence. For
example, the current Saturn period for soybeans started with a Saturn/Saturn period in Sept.
1979, and continued with a Saturn/Mercury period in Sept. 1979 followed by a Saturn/Ketu period
etc. The major Saturn cycle will nish In 1996 and then soybeans will move into a major Mercury
cycle starting with Mercury/Mercury, Mercury/Ketu, Mercury/Venus etc.
In order to properly use the Indian time cycles and their smaller periods, one must have

off can lead to changing the prediction low or high by 4 days. O’Non and Remnick illustrate the
importance of the exact time using a brilliant analogy from physics:
To launch a rocket ship to the moon, knowledge of the precise angle, time, and location of
the launching on earth are necessary. If it is launched at a slightly different time and angle, It
will miss by 30,000 to 40,000 miles (24).
I have had to travel to the archives of the Chicago Board of Trade and other major exchanges
to verify the rst tick starting time and have collected an almost complete set of dates and times
which I make available to participants in my advanced seminars.
Predicting the effects of the period is based on the natal chart placements at the time of
birth. The positive or negative nature of these periods depends on the placement of the planet
by house position, the houses he owns, the house he aspects, the planets that aspect him, and
the sign that he is in. For example, in a person’s natal chart which has lupiter In Cancer in the
9th with Scorpio ising, a speculator in a Jupiter period lasting 16 years would expect astounding
results since Jupiter owns the 5th and the 2nd (speculation and accumulated wealth) and is
exalted in the house of good luck and good fortune. Indian astrology is thus especially fruitful
for looking into ones own chart and seeing what periods will bring the most good luck and good
fortune. W. D. Gann was noted for emphasizing the importance of trading off of ones chart . My
own experience has supported this notion. Even when my market timing is on, if my own chart
suggest losses or obstacles in the cycles, I inevitably get bad lls, miss a major entry by a tick,
or get stopped out before the market goes my direction.
In Indian astrology cycles are stronger than transits and aspects. This concept can explain
why some Western astrologers are frustrated in their analyses. According to Indian astrology
if the underlying period is positive, then bad transits or aspects will only have a minor negative
effect; if the underlying period is negative, even good transits or aspects may not make a
dent. In market terms the cycle or dasa often represents the underlying market sentiment. For
example, in a bear market, when where is good news and the market falls to rally, the underlying
sentiment remains bearish and no external event is going to alter it. More concretely one can
remember well the Saturn/Uranus conjunction of Feb. 1988 that was forecasted to suggest a
sequel to Black Monday, however, it failed to manifest, not only because of a spacial planetary
combination (yoga) from Jupiter’s trinal aspect on its own sign, but also because the underlying
period, Jupiter/Mercury/Sun, was neutral to slightly positive.
