CHAPTER 7

Introduction to Cycles and Transits for Forecasting

image Introduction

This chapter is an introduction into the basic concepts of financial astrology cycles and transit forecasting. Cycles are repeating events that can be tied to planetary periods and angles. These planetary periods can then be correlated to a specific market. These cycles can then be correlated to a specific market. Once correlated, they can be used to forecast cyclic events in the future. Transits are basic mood barometers of the markets. A transit oscillator is a compilation of transits that are assigned values to create a dynamic graph to track focused areas of planetary influence. These oscillators are not correlated to market price, but the broad-based market often follows the pattern.
