Although a scientist by profession, Dr. Raj Chadha has been interested in Vedic Astrology since childhood. He has been practicing and advising his friends and family for more than 40 years. He also authored a book, “ A Practical Guide to Hindu Astrology”. He has done an extensive research to understand the relationship between the transit of planets and stock price movements.

Some people use fundamental analysis of the companies to invest in their shares. Other people use technical analysis to understand the behavior of the masses toward the stock prices. Both these methods have their advantages, yet they fail to see the uncertainties of the future events. I believe astrological analysis of a stock-chart can provide valuable insights about the future performance of a stock and should be used in conjunction with the fundamental and technical analysis.

To prepare a stock’s astrological chart, I use IPO’s first-trade-day as the birthday of the stock-chart and the opening time of the exchange where it trades as the time of birth of the stock. This time should be corrected for the company’s headquarters, which is used as the place of birth of the chart.

A significant part of the price movement of a stock comes from the direction of the stock market. I used to use a birth chart of the USA to determine the direction of the US stock market. But over time, I have found that the opening time chart of the New York Stock Exchange gives better results for this purpose. The day is May 17, 1792, the time is 10:30 AM (local time), and the place is New York, NY.

Because of the skepticism of the general American people about astrology, all the valuable information given on this site is free. I sincerely intend to prove these doubters that astrology works in the hands of an experienced astrologer. Nature has provided us with a tool in the form of planetary motion, and we should utilize it and not ignore it.


U.S. Stock Market in 2022

The stock market has seen great turmoil in 2022. The trouble can easily be seen from the planetary configurations that have formed in 2022, most notably the transit of Ketu (Moon’s south node) in Scorpio and Rahu (Moon;s north node) in Taurus on January 19. Saturn is in Aquarius, and aspects Ketu in Scorpio by its 10th house aspect. Or, we can also say that Saturn forms a challenging square aspect with Rahu and Ketu. When Moon comes to Scorpio every month, it is weak because it is fallen. Here it conjuncts a malefic planet, Ketu, and receives the aspect of another malefic Saturn. Moon is, therefore, weak and doubly afflicted during its transit in Scorpio. I have observed this to create a low point in the US stock market. When Moon leaves Scorpio, it starts recovering its strength. It continues to gain strength until it comes to Taurus, its sign of exaltation. In Taurus, it conjuncts Uranus and Rahu, two stimulating planets. Thus market recovers until Moon crosses from Taurus to Gemini. Then, the strength of the Moon starts decreasing again.

The sell signal comes when Moon moves out of the most robust state, and the buy signal comes when it crosses its weakest state. The Moon’s transition dates from Taurus to Gemini and Scorpio to Sagittarius are recorded in the following table, along with the corresponding S&P values.

Moon transits dates Signal S&P Right/Wrong
Ta to Ge 1/13 Sell 4645  
Sc to Sg 1/27 Buy 4313 Right
Ta to Ge 2/9 Sell 4575 Right
Sc to Sg 2/24 Buy 4228 Right
Ta to Ge 3/8 Sell 4162 Wrong, #1
Sc to Sg 3/22 Buy 4496 Wrong, #2
Ta to Ge 4/4 Sell 4548 Right
Sc to Sg 4/19 Buy 4450 Right
Ta to Ge 5/3 Sell 4120 Wrong, #3
Sc to Sg 5/17 Buy 4080 Right
Ta to Ge 5/30 Sell 4120 Right
Sc to Sg 6/13 Buy 3750 Wrong, #4
Ta to Ge 6/26 Sell 3912  
Sc to Sg 7/10 Buy 3850  
Ta to Ge 7/23 Sell 3960  


One can see that this consideration alone gives good results, but it fails four times. However, one gets better results if one considers aspects of other planets on the Moon during its journey from weakest level to most robust, and vice versa. Here is how I explain these discrepancies.

#1. Between 2/24 to 3/8, Moon in Taurus forms a square aspect with four planets, Mars, Venus, Saturn, and Mercury in Aquarius on 3/7 and 3/8. As a result, the S&P suffers losses and falls from 4228 to 4162 despite being on the Buy signal.

#2. Between 3/8 to 3/22, Moon in Cancer forms a trine aspect with four planets, Mercury, Jupiter, Sun, And Neptune in Pisces on 3/12 and 3/13. The market, therefore, moved from 4162 to 4496 in spite of being on a Sell signal.

#3. Between 4/19 and 5/3, S&P was on a buy signal but fell from 4450 to 4120. Moon was in Aquarius, conjunct Saturn, and square to Uranus, Rahu, and Mercury in Taurus around 4/24 and 4/25.

#4. While Moon was in Scorpio, it was opposite to four planets, Sun, Uranus, Mercury, and Venus in Taurus. The dates were 6/11 and 6/12.

Thus by combining the transiting dates of the Moon when it leaves Taurus or Scorpio and looking at the aspects Moon makes with other planets on any day during the fortnight, one can make a relatively good guess of the biweekly direction of the market. This situation has come up because Ketu occupies Scorpio and Saturn Aquarius these days.

In the second table, I added a second factor that deals with the aspects Moon makes during the up or down cycle. The market can go down if it makes square aspects with four or more planets in any sign. On the other hand, if it makes a trine aspect with four or more planets during the up or down cycle, it pushes the indexes higher.

Sc to Sg 9/3 Buy trn Ur, Ra, Su, Ve 9/6 Buy Strong buy,   3924


Other factors may also be included to improve the results. For example, the market goes higher when Moon transits over Jupiter in Aries, and when Moon transits over Saturn in Aquarius, the market goes lower. The market also behaves slightly better when Moon is in Cancer.

Please note that if the sign of the Moon changes on Saturday, its effect is seen on Friday; if on Sunday, it is seen on Monday.

I believe one can use this model to predict the market’s direction reasonably well as long as Ketu stays in Scorpio and Saturn in Aquarius. That date is 3/8/2023 when Saturn moves to Pisces. Ketu moves to Libra on 7/17/2023. We may not get reliable results from this model after 3/8/2023, as Moon may be weak in Scorpio but not afflicted by two malefic planets. Let us see how this works out. I will keep on updating this table as time goes by.

Please note that the S&P vlaues given in BLUE are the values entered after this article was posted. The future dates for the cycle are: September 3 (upcycle starts), September 16 (downcycle), September 30 (upcycle), October 13 (downcycle) and October 28 (upcycle). As mentioned above, one cannot use this information only to forecast the direction of the market. One should also look at the influence of other planetary aspects on the Moon. However, the influence of the cycle may start diminishing after October because the distance between Saturn and Ketu exceeds the orb of 5 degrees. Another point to note is that Saturn becomes direct on October 23. It therefore becomes less malefic henceforth.
