Comments from a student who has just completed the course:

This financial astrology course is a gold mine. It explains the fundamentals of astrology as well as stock market methods and techniques in a very simple and efficient manner. My investment returns have already been improved and confidence in stock selection and timing have increased tremendously. I am sure things will continuously improve going forward with more practice and experience.  H.S.

Aug 31 – Sep 04, 2020

A few weeks ago, I changed the format of this page. Instead of giving daily predictions, I am now writing about the shorter periods of the week. The basis is the compressed-vimshottri-dasha (cvd) planet in the monthly Solar return chart (mSRC).

My prediction last week was  correct as SP500 gained nearly 100 points, as I was expecting a higher market. 

Here is  the expected breakdown of the week of  August 31, 2020 – September 04, 2020.

The cvd planet for the period August 30 – September 03 is Rahu. Rahu is placed in 6th house with no aspect from any benefic or malefic planet. This is not a good configuration, and could result in a lower market.  

The cvd planet for the period September 04 -September 08 is Jupiter. Jupiter rules 12th house, and is situated in the 1st house in the sign Capricorn. Jupiter gets the influence of  Venus in 7th house. This setup is good for the market and can result in the higher values for the indexes.

Overall this week the S&P 500 may go LOWER, because market may be down 4 days and up only 1 day.

The week after that may start with a higher day on September 08, 2020.

From August 22, 2016 I started to predict the (Monthly) movement of the prices of gold and oil. I will be giving my reasoning also, so that the interested viewers can provide their inputs and ideas.

During the MONTH of September 2020,

GOLD prices may go slightly lower. My reason for this is that during this month, the Sun will move into its the sign Virgo and Mars is already in Aries. The price of gold may therefore go slightly lower.

OIL prices may remain flat as Mercury moves into Libra. Here is opposed by Mars in Aries. This might not result in any significant change in the price of oil.

Note: This forecast is strictly based on astrological considerations. This is only for academic interest and not intended for trading.

Astro-Chart of the Month (COIN)

COIN – Coinbase Global Inc. 

Coinbase exchange is an exchange where you can trade cryptocurrencies. It started trading on 4/14/2021. It is a direct listing and not a traditional IPO. But since it started trading on this date, we can use this date to calculate its chart. Its astrological chart looks like this.

The chart is solid. You can see an exalted Sun in the first house. This indicates that it may be a very popular stock and could easily become a leader stock. The two houses of money have strong planets. The second house has exalted Moon, and the eleventh has Saturn in Aquarius, which is its own sign.

Jupiter occupies the eleventh house. Jupiter influences two malefic planets, Mars and Rahu, in the third house, reducing their malevolence. Interestingly, Jupiter also influences all the Air signs, which means that the Coin-exchange will find innovative ways to adapt itself to any changing environments in the future.

Besides Sun, the ascendant also has Mercury and Venus. Mercury is strong in the first house, but Venus is weak because it is about to change signs and combust. Rahu and Ketu generally give good results in Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively. They are also beneficial here because they are well placed, and their sign-rulers, Mercury and Jupiter, are strong. The exchange of lords of the first and third houses (Mars and Mercury) generally give very successful companies. Strong Saturn shows that it is going to have good longevity, not years, but decades. Saturn is also strong in the Navamsha chart. The Navamsha chart (not shown in the chart above) has two more strong planets, Moon and Mercury.

The starting dasha is of Jupiter, which occupies the eleventh house. This period will continue till June 2024. The next period is a ten years-long period of strong Sun. Needless to say that it would become a leader stock by then, and it would continue to become a stronger and stronger company.

The only stock that comes to mind which has such a robust astrological configuration is AAPL. If the astrological chart of AAPL got 100 marks, the chart of COIN would get 90. It is because Venus is weak in this chart. But if we look at the astrological periods, COIN is starting with a safer period right away, whereas AAPL took quite a few years to exert its superiority.

While comparing it to AAPL, one should treat it like that, a long-term stock. Like AAPL, it will also suffer occasional corrections, maybe severe corrections because Saturn, although strong, influences four planets. But, one should try to buy it at every opportunity. Since it is very high on valuation now, one can wait until it comes down to some reasonable levels. Then, one should buy and hold this stock to pass it on to the next generation.

Please note that these are my views based on astrology. There is no guarantee that it would happen like that.

MELIMercadoLibre, Inc.

Mercado Libre, Inc. is an Argentine company, and is a great free-market play (mercado libre means free market in Spanish) on the growth of e-commerce in Latin America. The company is following the same tried-and-true business model as Amazon, eBay and PayPal. It’s IPO priced at $18 in August 2007 and continuously rising to around $1850 as of Jan 2021, an impressive 100x increase in stock price.

Here is IPO-date astrology chart.

The ascendant lord Venus is in the eleventh house, although weak by degrees, is always good. The lord of second house is Mars is in the house of its enemy Mercury. But it is under the beneficial aspect of strong Jupiter, which is the lord of third house. This Jupiter blesses not only Mars but four planets in the eleventh house to various degrees. These planets include Mercury and the eleventh lord Sun. Moon is another strong planet, which makes tenth house also very strong. Close conjunction of two friends Venus and Saturn is also considered good. The sign-lord of both Rahu and Ketu are strong. All planets are either strong or under the influence of strong Jupiter. Strong planets in third, tenth and eleventh house formed very strong Vasumati Yoga, which can easily overpower a few weaknesses in the chart mentioned earlier. No wonder this stock has produced 42% annualized gain in 13 years.

September 1, 2020

MSCI Inc.

MSCI Inc is another stock that has produced more than 25% annualized since it became public in 2007. This performance is comparable to the stocks like AAPL, ADBE, MSFT, TTD, NVDA etc. although it is not as well-known as them. MSCI Inc., provides investment decision support tools for the clients to manage their investment processes worldwide.

 

As usual, let us start with the first house. It has Jupiter in its own sign Sagittarius. Jupiter generally is very strong in the first house because of the strength of direction. In this case, Jupiter is in its own positive sign, with no influence of any malefic planet. Jupiter is thus extra strong in this chart. It is well known that if there is a strong Jupiter in the ascendant, it alleviates many deficiencies of the chart. The other benefic planet that I look for is Venus. Venus is also extra strong, because once again it is in its own positive sign, and that too in the eleventh house of income. Moon is weak as it is the sign of Saturn and is aspected by weak Mars in the eighth house. Saturn is also not in a good state because of its conjunction with Ketu. Sun and Mercury are present in the twelfth house and aspected by Saturn. But these two planets are hemmed by two strong benefic planets, which make them reasonably well-behaved. Rahu is well placed and its sign-lord Jupiter is strong. Overall this is an extraordinary chart. One can continue to expect solid performance from this stock.

August 1, 2020

The trade Desk, TTD

The trade desk is a provider of a global technology platform for buyers of advertising. It became public in 2016 at $18 per share, and its price today, in less than 4 years, is $430. Let us see if we can see that.

 

The ascendant is Virgo, with its lord Mercury right there in the first house with north-node. Sun is also present in the first house, which indicates that this company should be recognized right away. The second house of the chart has two benefic planets Venus and Jupiter. Venus is very strong as it is present in its own sign. Jupiter from this house aspects Moon sitting in the tenth house. Thus all three benefic planets are supporting each other. These planets also strengthen the signs of innovation, namely Gemini and Libra. The third and eleventh house do not have any benefic planets, but at least they don’t have any malefic planets either. The malefic north and south nodes are not doing any harm because they are well placed in the Centers and their dispositors are strong. The combination of Mars and Saturn may cause setbacks once in a while. But that would be taken care of timely by the strength and placement of benefic planets.  Young investors who have time on their side should take a note of this stock.

July 4, 2020

Shopify  Inc. (SHOP)

 

Let us start with the first house as usual. The ascendant is Cancer and its lord Moon is right there. Another benefic planet Venus is sitting very close to it. Therefore ascendant is quite strong along with Moon. Next we look at the second house. It has Jupiter in its friendly sign. The lord of second house appears to be in twelfth house, but in fact it is in the eleventh house. Next we look at the third and eleventh houses. There are no planets in them, but the lord of the eleventh house is in the ascendant and lord of third house is strong in its own sign Gemini. The third house is also influenced by Saturn from the sixth house. Since Saturn rules the eighth house and occupies sixth house, it constitutes Vipreet Raj Yoga. The sign Gemini is strong as it is occupied by its ruler, and a friend Sun, although it also has enemy but Raj-yoga-karak Mars. The sign Aquarius is also aspected by its lord Saturn and Jupiter. It is therefore good. Libra has Rahu, which is also good because its dispositor is in in the ascendant and in good company of Moon. Ketu in Aries in the tenth house is also good as it under the aspect of Jupiter in second house. The opposition of Saturn and Mars and combustion of Mars are not desirable factors. Overall, this is a Four-star not five-star IPO-chart, which is still very very good.

 

October 2017

Roku Inc. (ROKU)

Roku inc came out as a public company only 2 days ago. Today I am writing about it because I am quite impressed with its astro-chart.

 

The ascendant is Virgo, with its lord Mercury right there near ascendant longitude. This makes this chart very strong because Mercury is the dispositor of weak Venus and Mars. Second house is also quite good as it is occupied by Jupiter. Since Jupiter is quite far from Sun (22degees) it is not combust, rather shining with the rays of Sun. This shining Jupiter influences signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, making it an innovative company. Saturn in the fourth house is not good as it aspects Ketu in the sixth, and three planets in the first house. Moon is also not good, as it is in the sign of enemy Saturn and is surrounded by 2 malefic planets. As a result there would be intermittent drawdowns. But in spite of all the weaknesses in the chart, this company may go on producing good results, because of the strength of Mercury, which is ultimate dispositor of all planets.

I therefore have great hopes from this stock. Please do your own discretion and study before deciding to go in for this stock, as it has already doubled in 2 days.

STARBUX Inc, (SBUX)

Starbux became a public company on 6/26/1992 at a price of $0.32 adjusted for dividends and splits. The price today is $75. This amounts to an increase of 225 times in 28 years. In fact it is more than 300x when count the dividends. Let us look at its first trade day chart.

 

The ascendant is Cancer with four planets, Sun, Ketu, Venus and Mercury. Venus is combust and Sun is dimmed by the closeness of Ketu. Mercury is also not strong as it is at the edge of the sign. But look at the ascendant lord, Moon. It is exalted in the eleventh house, and in the company of Raj-yoga karak Mars. On top of that Moon is aspected by planet of abundance, Jupiter in the third house. When there are too many planets in one sign, the strength of the planets in the sign can be elevated or diminished by the strength of their dispositor. Strength of the planet Moon thus raises the strength of all planets in Cancer. This set up makes first, third and eleventh houses strong. Moon, Mars and Jupiter constitute wealth-producing Chaadar-Mangal  and Vasumati yogas. There is an exchange of lords of first (Moon) and eleventh (Venus) houses. Such an exchange is always desirable in the astrology charts of stocks.

Second house is also aspected by Mars and strong Saturn from the eighth house. Saturn is strong as it is in its Mool-Trikona sign. Strong Saturn in a chart helps it to survive for long time. Jupiter while in the third house also influences Rahu in the seventh house. Dispositors of both Rahu and Ketu are strong. In the nutshell this is a very strong chart, but one cannot rule out the occasional corrections due to transit of malefic planets in the first or second house.

 

September 2014

ALIBABA, (BABA)

This stock has recently come to the market on September 19. People were so excited that they sold many winners to raise enough money to buy as much of this stock as possible. Since in my view no other method can look into the future as good as Astrology, I decided to do careful and thorough analysis of this stock before it came to the market.

 

The ascendant is Gemini, and it lord Mercury is in the fifth house in a friendly sign. Such a setup generally produces good stocks. The lord of second house is Moon, which is very strong being in third house in the sign of a friend, and in the company of Jupiter. Third house has two benefic planets, which are friends and support each other in the every possible way. They constitute Vasumati yoga. The sign Aquarius is being influenced by them and the sign Libra is also has a friend in Mercury. Venus is the only planet that appears weak, as it is fallen and combust. But its strength is also increased a bit by exchanging signs with friend Mercury and being in the fourth house. Jupiter sends his blessings to Ketu and Mars.  Rahu has a good company of the ascendant lord. Saturn is weak and badly placed and it casts its shadow on Moon, Jupiter, and third house. The stocks therefore was slow to start, and gets occasional beatings.

August 2014

Chipotle Mexican Grill, (CMG)

This month I am going to write about a stock, which clearly shows the usefulness of the astro-charts. It is only the Astrological analysis that would have strongly suggested at the time of an IPO that this stock has an enormous potential. The stock is Chipotle Mexican Grill. This stock produced 3000% between its IPO date (2006)and 2014. Here is the chart of this stock.

 

The lord of the first house is in the seventh house and in return aspects the ascendant point closely. The lord of second house is in the tenth house and aspects the second house back. Moon is in the eleventh house and hemmed between two benefic planets Jupiter and Venus. The planet Venus is considered good in the twelfth house. Although there is no planet in own house or exalted, yet they for many form mutual relationships. Jupiter and Mars are present in the central houses and form a relationship by mutually and closely aspecting each other. That is basically mutual aspect of the lords of eleventh and third houses. Sun and Saturn not only exchange signs but also aspect each other. Mars and Saturn also, mutually influence each other. Their relationship is especially good because Saturn rules first and Mars the third house. Both Saturn and Mercury have dik-bala, but Mercury is completely combust in the first house. This is not good. The sign Libra is occupied by Ketu, but Gemini has the influence of benefic Moon.

So this astro-chart has everything of superb quality I need in a stock. No wonder this stock has produced so much gains in the first 8 years of its existence.  

 

December 2013

Google Inc, GOOG

 It was my intention to write about one stock-chart a month, which I could not follow for some reasons. I am now going to resume my commitment with my top rated stock, Google. It came to public in 2004 at $85 a share, and it is now more than $1050 a share.

 This change represents 12 times growth of value in 9 years, a phenomenal feat by any means.

 

Ascendant lord Sun is not only in the ascendant but also almost at the same longitude. This is a sign of a very popular stock. Lord of second house is also in the second house. It makes it also quite strong. It is also the lord of the eleventh house and it is making a close conjunction with Mars. Although Mars is its enemy, yet is a Raj-yoga karak in this chart. The planet of abundance Jupiter is also present in the second house. A benefic planet Moon is present in the third house. Although sign Gemini is not occupied by any planet, yet Libra is occupied by Moon and Aquarius is aspected by Sun. A unique yoga is present in the chart. The ascendant is surrounded by benefic planets Venus in the twelfth and Jupiter in the second house. The conjunction of Venus and Saturn is also a meeting of two friends. Venus exchange signs with Moon. Any connection between Venus, Moon and Jupiter is generally good. The malignancy of Rahu and Ketu is reduced because they occupy central houses. Here Saturn does influence more than 3 planets and houses by conjunction or aspect. As a result occasional set back cannot be avoided. But overall this is undoubtedly a leader stock.

 I would buy this buy stock whenever a correction occurs in the market.

 

September 2012

Philip Morris Int, PM

Philip Morris is a very old company, which is now called Altria.  Altria spun off Philip Morris International on March 17, 2008. Its HQ is in New York and the operation center is in  Lausanne, Switzerland, which oversees the operations in more than 160 countries. Its state of incorporation is Virginia, USA.

Earlier I studied this chart made with Sidereal Zodiac using Lahiri Ayanamsha. It was my core holding as Moon was very strong in the fourth house of this chart. Jupiter was also quite strong in the ninth house in its Mool-Trikona sign. PM has not produced the desired results. It lagged the stock market averages for years. But when I studied the chart with zero Ayanamsha (Tropical Zodiac) the weaknesses of the chart showed up, which fully explains its performance. Now I study Tropical charts commonly used by Western astrologers, but interpret them with basic Parashari system. I have now redrawn and reinterpreted all the charts on this website.

 

Ascendant is Taurus now and its ruler Venus is exalted in eleventh house. It is very good. But the lord of the second house Mercury is fallen in the eleventh house. Third house has fallen Mars and ninth house has fallen Jupiter. So basically there are three fallen planets (including Mercury) in the chart. Close conjunction of Mercury and Venus and aspect of Raj-yoga-karak Saturn on them are good features.  The signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius have no benefic influence, which is not good. Moon is good in the fourth house. Overall there are both good features and bad features in the chart. Therefore this is at best a mediocre chart. And that is what its performance has been.

 

August 2012

Facebook, FB

I will start with the astro-chart of Facebook, FB. Face book is a popular company, which became public on May 18, 2012. There were a lot of expectations from this stock, which did not materialize due to the discrepancies that occurred during the initial public offering. This can be easily seen from the fact that the IPO was done close to the solar eclipse (May 20).

 

The most striking feature of this chart is that it has exalted Saturn in the fifth house. It therefore influences both second and eleventh house, the houses of wealth and income. A strong Saturn in a chart of a company suggests that it would survive for a long time. The sign Gemini in the first house is generally a very favorable situation. It has a social planet Venus, which being in friendly sign and retrograde is quite strong. Venus is the dispositor of five planets in the chart, and thus providing them additional strength. Venus is Yogi-planet and it exchanges signs with Mercury. Mercury being in a friendly sign and in the vicinity of Jupiter is good. But the combustion of Jupiter in the twelfth house is not good. Moon is the lord of second house and occupies twelfth house. This also cannot be regarded a positive feature, but Moon is exalted, so it is not too bad. The placement of Mars, Rahu and Ketu in the central house reduces their malefic nature but does not make them benefic, because the influence of Venus on nodes and of Jupiter on Mars is too far. 

Overall, it can be termed as a long-term holding kind of stock, but one should expect occasional and may be severe drawdowns.

Next month I plan to write about Philip Morris.

Hindu Astrology Book

I am updating my book “A Practical Guide to Hindu Astrology” to use Tropical Signs instead of Sidereal. It can take a time of about one month to upload on Kindle. I will inform here as soon as it is ready.

Notable Stocks Now -TSLA

Notable Stocks – April 2021

The astrological point of view on the stocks which are in the news currently performing are discussed here.

TSLA -Tesla Inc (Mar 28, 2021)

People are very concerned about this stock, as it has moved strongly higher in 2020, and now correcting in 2021. It is highly overpriced, and some people think it can crash. I am going to write my long term astrological viewpoint about this stock today. Investors should use their own diligence to invest in this stock.

The stock gave a stellar profermance last year because the period of a strong Jupiter in Aries had just started. This was combined with the transit of strong Mars in Aries, which lasted for 7 months due to retrograde motion. Such coincidences are rare. It started corrected as soon as Mars moved to Taurus. Since the stock is still under the major-period of Jupiter, one cannot say that the stock will crash or go significantly down over the remaining period of Jupiter. Jupiter period started on 2/28/2020 and would last until 2/27/2030. Good sub-periods would last until 2/27/2028. But for sure the kind of move it has seen in 2020 is not going to happen again, although it will still be a good stock to own.

The action of transits is significant when strong planets conjunct the Maha-dasha and Antar-dasha planet. So whenever Mars and Sun comes back to Aries, the upside moves may be seen. Note that Sun comes to Aries on March 21 and leaves on April 21, every year. The stock may therefore recover now during this period in 2021. It may also do better during this month every year. The months of Mars coming to Aries are June-July 2022, May-June 2024, April-May 2026, and March-April 2028. One can expect good performance during these months.

Combining the effect of dashas and transits, I think the stock will do good for years to come, but one cannot expect it to double every year now. Using astrology I can only see the direction, or good or bad period. I cannot put numbers, i.e. I cannot say how far the stock prices can go up.

Disclaimer: These are my conclusions based on my knowledge of astrology. I do not guarantee that it will happen like that. I may be entirely wrong also. Please keep that in your mind, and make your own decision on investing in TSLA stock.

TSLA -Tesla Inc (Jan 24, 2021)

After my last upate on Tesla, the stock has been going up, up and up. I had warned about shorting this stock, because I was seeing good planetary configurations only. I have decided to give my astrological views again on this stock. I think, TSLA price may go slighly higher or remain flat in February, flat in March, and lower in April 2021. Let us see how this monthly study works out. I will then update it again in April.

TSLA -Tesla Inc (August 2020)

The stock of Tesla has been performing as if there is no upside limit. It was $330 on March 18. Today, August 21, it is about $2100. That is more than 6x in five months. I therefore decided to look at it closely and share with you as to ‘how can this happen’ and see if it is a time to short this stock. Well, my findings may surprise you. The configuration of planet is still favorable for this stock until next year. I cannot say how far this can go, but if somebody wants to short it, he should be extra, extra careful.

An update about Mallinckrodt (MNK):

This company has filed bankruptcy last week. I have mentioed earlier also – in comments section – that this stock is a total gamble now. It can go to ZERO in a few months. And there is a high probability of that. It may also go to $5 or $10 or even $20 in about 5-10 years. But there is only a small probability of that. If you are invested in it, leave it there if you are completely OK with losing your money. Otherwise sell to recover at least $1.50.

Other companies of 10 for 2020 like, AMZN, FB, WIX, ENPH and BIIB etc are doing good. This episode only shows the importance of diversification.
