Financial Astrology Index

Introduction

The Financial Astrology Index (FAI) has a theoretical range between 0 (all bearish) to 100 (all bullish).  Most of time, it should move between 20 and 80.  Readings above 60 should be considered bullish, while readings below 40 are bearish.  Readings between 40 and 60 are neutral. 

It may be read in a similar way to technical indicators such as the RSI and Stochastics which show overbought and oversold conditions in the market. A number above 80 is very bullish and suggests a strong up trend.  In some situations (e.g. near resistance, in a bearish market), this may also indicate a heightened risk of a reversal lower.  The trend in the FAI is at least as important as the actual value in terms of understanding possible future price patterns. 

As always, it is not intended as a substitute for established stock market technical indicators.  If anything, it is intended to stand alongside them and should be treated as an additional source of information -- just another tool in the investor's toolkit.  Fair warning: this is still very much a work-in-progress.  I will likely be tweaking the relative weights of the different factors down the road. 

By way of disclaimer, let me state the obvious: do not use this index as a stand-alone method for investing.  There are simply too many unknowns in astrology.  Astrology is best used as a supplementary source of information in tandem with other technical and fundamental approaches.  The bottom line is this is not to be taken as investment advice.  For informational purposes only.





Financial Astrology Index for Tuesday, 14 August 2018


            Total Value      Quality       1 day ago    1 week ago    1 month ago        
                           
FAI          79               bullish              77             78                   80


Notes:

Moon Phase              30/30       bullish         

The lunar phase is positive as it is close to the New Moon.  And it is conjunct Venus, a benefic planet. 
    

Jupiter condition         9/10       bullish

Jupiter gets a small boost since its dispositor Venus is with the Moon on Tuesday.  Its aspect with Neptune is still a key source of market optimism these days.

       
Saturn condition         5/10       neutral

Saturn is in a mixed condition due to its alignment with Uranus albeit in the 6th house from the Sun.  Its square alignment with the Moon and Venus is also a source of potential weakness although the square aspect will be separating by the time of the US trading day..


Sun condition             8/10       bullish

The Sun is improved through the placement of its dispositor, Moon, with benefic Venus.


Transit alignments      15/20     bullish

The Moon-Venus conjunction is generally positive.  The Mercury-Jupiter alignment is separating but as Mercury stations direct on Sunday the 19th, this could produce more positive energy.


Natal alignments (NYSE)         12/20     bullish

The aspects with the 1792 chart still lean bullish although there is still some risk there as Mars is square the natal Saturn and Ketu trines Rahu.

Natal alignments         12/20     bullish
(NYSE)


Notes:

The lunar phase is mostly positive as it is still close enough to the New Moon.  It is also unafflicted.

Jupiter gets a boost from its aspect with Neptune but it weakened slightly since its dispositor Venus is debilitated. 

Saturn is slightly bullish due to its 6th house placement from the Sun.  It is weakened by its alignment with Uranus, however. 

Sun is strengthened by exchange of signs with dispositor Moon (Cancer-Leo)

The transit alignments are bullish due to the Venus-Ketu aspect.  The debilitation of Venus in Virgo is negative but probably not decisive.

The natal NYSE alignments are somewhat bullish due to the Mercury-Jupiter alignment with the Ascendant. The Ketu-to-Rahu aspect is negative, however, as raises the possibility of a sudden reversal lower in the coming days.
