The Horoscope in Business
The tools of astrology and the horoscope can be applied to a multitude of fields, other than forecasts for individual persons. One such field is financial astrology, also called astro-economics - the astrological method to analyze and predict matters of business and finance.
There are two major ways of doing this. One is to observe the planetary movements in the sky, and interpret the trends and events they imply, which are of world wide influence. The other is to chart horoscopes for specific businesses, countries, or financial ventures, and interpret them.
Observing the planetary movements in the sky are easy enough, through astronomical tables or computer programs - revealing such things long in advance, making predictions possible for hundreds of years ahead (but not easy to interpret, of course). To make a complete horoscope chart for a specific business or country, a starting date and location is needed - sometimes obvious, sometimes buried in history.
When you make a complete horoscope chart for a business, the date you choose for that chart decides what perspective will be shown by the horoscope. If its the founding date of a company, the horoscope chart presents its overall life, whereas the date of its introduction to the stock market will show how it fares there, and so on.
Aries challenging, aggressive
Sun basic drive
conjunction, 0° fusion
The principles behind astrology are reasonably clear, but also they are quite general. Finding the meaning in the specific case of one horoscope, and understanding how it will express itself concretely - that is the challenge. A client would do well to consult more than one astrologer.
How the interpretation is done, is best explained by examples. The components of the horscope are combined - the influence of a planet is explained by its own characteristics, those of the sign and House it's in, and of the aspects it might form to other planets.
So, Mars in Aries in the 2nd House would imply very drastic action to make ends meet in a company's economy - to the extent of being adventurous, high-risk. Jupiter in the same sign and House shows that the company has a tendency to get sudden high incomes, sort of out of the blue, but still to the extent that the business is continuously doing great. If that Jupiter is in trine with Venus in the 6th House in Leo, this income is explained by a very creative working environment in the company, probably based on a pride in the quality of its production. There might be one or more unique patents in production.
Also Houses with no planets can be interpreted. The 6th House in Virgo tells that the production at that company is detailed and complicated, quite elaborate work, whereas in Pisces it would be troublesome and disorganized, and in Taurus slow but competent. And so on.
I hope that you can deduct from the tables above, how I reach my interpretations.
For example, when Mars in the sky passes over the same position as the Ascendant has in Capricorn in the chart, it implies a crisis that forces the company to redefine its profile, how it presents itself to the outside world. It may have to defend itself against public accusations that question its competence and control. All aspects have significance in transits, but the conjunction and opposition are by far the most important.
