PATTERNS IN THE SKIES - Timing the Financial Markets with Astrology
September 2013, written by Markus Rose
In this newsletter we will have a look at the Trine Aspect. This occurs whenever two planets are separated by an angle of 120 degrees.
THE TRINE ASPECT

So the first question you might have is: What is a Trine-aspect ?
A Trine-aspect is an angle of 120 degrees between any two planets.
THE SYNODIC PLANETARY CYCLE
If we look at any two planets (the relationship between two planets is called a SYNODIC CYCLE) and we try to find a cycle between two planets, we will naturally start with the conjunction. A conjunction is when two planets occupy the same spot in the Zodiac. Let me give you an example.
FULL MOON AND NEW MOON
Although the Sun and Moon are not planets, astrologers look at them as planets since from the viewpoint of the Earth the Sun and Moon move around the Zodiac along with the other planets. Therefore I borrow the Sun and the Moon here as an example for any other pairing of two planets.
If the Sun and Moon are conjunct, a new cycle is born. The conjunction of the Sun and the Moon is more commonly known as New Moon, while the opposition - the 180 degree angle between the Sun and Moon- is called a Full Moon. We have just have experienced a Full Moon yesterday.
VOLATILITY INCREASES AS THE SYNODIC CYCLE APPROACHES ITS PEAK
Why is a Full Moon important ? Because financial markets tend to become more volatile when a Full Moon approaches. Astrologically a Full Moon will often NOT occur in the night, because the opposition of the Sun and Moon can be pinpointed mathematically to an exact hour.
LOCATION VERSUS TIME
For example yesterday's Full Moon occurred at 7h00 am Eastern time in the US morning. Of course in some localities on Earth, there was night at this time. Remember that planets are always measured from the center of the EARTH and hence the location on earth is NOT RELEVANT in determining the exact time of the FULL MOON or any other planetary pair for that matter. While the Time Zone is important as the Time Zone is an element of time itself.
CONTINUING THE SYNODIC CYCLE
THE WAXING TRINE
So how does the Trine Aspect fit into the cycle of the Sun and Moon ? While any cycle between two planets starts with a conjunction, the first trine is formed after the quicker moving planet moves in an 120 degree angle to the slower moving planet.
This first trine after the conjunction is also called a WAXING TRINE.
As the quicker-moving planet continues to race ahead it will move into opposition (180 degrees) to the slower-moving planet . This is called the opposition. Astrologers believe that any cycle that starts with the conjunction of two planets will peak at the opposition. For example, if a trend of a commodity starts with a conjunction of two planets, astrologers will look for the trend to end at the opposition or opposite the starting point of the trend. Before reaching the opposition the first TRINE aspect will be formed.
THE WANING TRINE
After the opposition the second Trine aspect will be formed. The second Trine Aspect is also called the WANING trine indicating that two planets are in the declining phase of their cycle. After the waning trine a waning square aspect (90 degrees) will form that will then be followed by a conjunction - and a new cycle can start.
THE FAMILY OF THIRD HARMONIC ASPECTS
The astrological Zodiac is a map of the heavens that looks like a circle with 360 degrees. If we divide 360 degrees into the number THREE we get 120. And hence the Trine aspect is also called a THIRD (3) HARMONIC ASPECT. But remember that a third harmonic aspect is also a conjunction as the 3 also indicates that there are three aspects in the CYCLE OF THE THIRD HARMONIC. These three Aspects are the CONJUNCTION, THE WAXING TRINE and the WANING TRINE. These THREE ASPECTS are each 120 degrees apart from each other in a planetary cycle.
PROPERTIES OF THE THIRD HARMONIC
But there is another astrological peculiarity that the TRINE ASPECT and the CONJUNCTION have in common. In a TRINE ASPECT and in a conjunction two planets will always be in the same element.
In astrology we know four elements. These are Fire, Earth, Air and Water. The elements Fire and Air are attributed a male quality, while the elements Earth and Water a female in nature. Each element is allotted three Signs. And hence we get 6 male and 6 female astrological signs that alternate with each other. A male sign is always followed by a female sign and vice versa.
The element Fire is allotted the Signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius and this completes a TRIPLICITY - THREE SIGNS that share the same element. The starting points of those signs that are in the same element is always 120 degrees apart. For example 0 degrees of Aries is 120 degrees apart from 0 degrees of Leo and 120 degrees from 0 degrees of Sagittarius.
VOLATILITY AND THE THIRD HARMONIC
The Trine Aspect and the Conjunction have in common that the planets that are forming these aspects will ALWAYS be in the same element. That means that the CONJUNCTION and the TRINE are the only astrological aspects that CAN ONLY OCCUR, if two planets are in the same element. So what do you get if you add the element of FIRE to the element of FIRE ? You will get more FIRE. And if you add WATER to WATER ? You will get more WATER. And hence the book TRINE ASPECT is also called a "guide to finding acceleration points" in today's financial markets as trends can accelerate, if two planets connect with a TRINE ASPECT. The acceleration is a result of adding FIRE to FIRE, WATER to WATER, EARTH to EARTH and AIR to AIR. And the only two astrological aspects that can achieve these results are the Conjunction ( 0 degrees = 360 degrees) and the Trine (120 degrees).
IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF A FINANCIAL TREND LOOK FOR A TRINE OR A CONJUNCTION
ASTROLOGY NEEDS TO BE SIMPLIFIED, SO THAT IT CAN BE THOUGHT TO KIDS IN HIGH SCHOOL
MOVING STARS, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SOFTWARE ON EARTH TO VIEW THE SIGNS OF THE SKIES

On this day the Sun was 120 to Uranus (ROSE line), Venus was 120 to Pluto (orb of 6 degrees, GREEN line) and eight planets formed trines with each other in Water Signs (BLUE LINES)
Moving Stars (casting dynamic horoscopes, see screenshot above) and Rosecast Scientific (calculating Planetary Aspects and Trispect) are the only astrology software programs worldwide that do not require you to input a location for casting or calculating planetary positions.
ROSECAST SCIENTIFIC GOLD, THE EASIEST WAY ON EARTH TO CALCULATE DATES OF IMPORTANCE IN THE SKIES!
Compare the Calculation of Trines for August 4 with Rosecast Scientific to the Sky Map of August 4 made with Moving Stars. The same information displayed with different software. The exact calculation times that Rosecast Scientific calculates are primarily of value to the intraday-trader, but can also be used to compile an Astrological Almanac for the next week/month or year!
Moving Stars saves you a lot of time when casting a horoscope - a snapshot of planetary positions. Also in Moving Stars the circle always commences with Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, and not with those sign that the RISING SIGN ARBITRARILY FALLS INTO. Thus you can easily compare past highs and lows in the commodity of your choice with each other. The reason why CITY MAPS work is that NORTH is always NORTH. IF NORTH was SOUTH in one city and West in another frequent travelers would go nuts. Moving Stars is the only astrology software that supports frequent travelers with a separate location menu, so that location must not BE and INPUT for casting a horoscope and yet the RISING SIGN and MIDHEAVEN can be calculated for many locations with ONE mouse-click.
THE DJIA ASTRO VIDEO
I found a free video about financial astrology on You Tube that states that THREE CONSECUTIVE TRINE ASPECTS between the planetary pair of VENUS and SATURN have turned out to be "Great Calls" on the Dow Jones, while the FOURTH Trine Aspect was not "working".
April 24, 2010 - Great Call!
March 15, 2011 - Great Call!
June 18, 2011 - Great Call!
January 14, 2012 - We teach you to avoid betting on it !
USING ROSECAST SCIENTIFIC TO FIND TRINE ASPECTS BETWEEN ANY TWO PLANETS
Rosecast Scientific is a simple piece of astrology software that allows you to search for any Trine Aspects any other major aspect between two planets. It is easy to use (I have designed it myself, no input of location is required), quick (a search of Trine Aspects for several years in the past and future takes only a few seconds to perform) and accurate (RS is based on the SWISS EPHEMERIS, the standard EPHEMERIS in astrological accuracy).

As the above tables shows there are two differences between the Trine-aspect video and the reality of astrological mathematics:
1) The second trine aspect was on March 14, 2011 and not March 15, 2011 and
2) the last Trine aspect was on January 13, 2012 and not January 14, 2012.
The March 14, 2012 trine was exact on the close of the Dow Jones on March 14, and well before the opening of the Dow Jones on March 15. "Great Call" ?

GREAT CALL ?
Let's see: On March 14 the Dow closed a few points below 12000. On March 16, 2 days later the Dow Jones closed 400 points lower.
HOW MECHANICAL RULES CAN GUIDE YOU TOWARDS SELECTING THE BEST RISK-REWARD SCENARIOS FOR YOUR TRADES
So one mechanical rule a trader employs would be to go GO LONG/SHORT ONLY, if the next bar or the next + x bar closes above/below the close of the Venus 120 Saturn bar (March 14). This rule would have prevented you from avoiding a draw-down of 400 points while still enjoying profit potential to the upside after the March 16 low.
A second rule might be that "since any astrological aspect might have a range of three days" we will only go long as soon as soon we get a long bar (or a bar that closes or trades above the high or range of the low bar) within three days after the aspect." With this rule you could have entered on the close of March 17 or on March 18, depending on how you define the rule exactly.
THE VALUE OF FINANCIAL ASTROLOGY
Does this diminish the value of astrology or the Trine Aspect? NOT, if you have come up with a set of mechanical rules that guide you in trading any astrological aspects . I refer to as BARS on a price chart that correspond to astrological aspects or other signals ( sign changes, planetary stations) as DECISION BARS. And I suggest that an trader needs a rule set to take advantage of DECISION BARS by maximizing his risk to reward ratios.
