Calculate Your Zodiac and Ascendant by Abhishek Lodha
Nicky, a pure geminean, always wears a dull and solemn look. The reason, he is not happy with his career, although he enjoys a handsome pay package, as his work varies very little day to day. He complains of his monotonous work schedule continuously. Nicky’s unhappiness in a routine job, however highly skilled would be even greater if it did not allow him to meet people, to indulge in a certain amount of friendly contact with others during the course of work.
Astrology, to be more specific, Western Astrology, is gaining a rapid appreciation in these days all over the world. Want to check out, just go up to your nearby book store, or visit the cyber cafe adjacent to your house, you will find everybody, people of all ages digging the sites and pages of astrology and occult. In ancient China wise men closely observed the movement of the sun, moon and the planets and prophesied the future of kings and emperors.
Most people, even the 10 year old school-goers, knows which sign of the zodiac they were ‘born under’ and they will be occasionally seen to glance at the astrology sections and columns of newspapers and magazines. While the position of the sun in the zodiac at a particular birth date is an important factor to be noted by the astrologers, it is not considered to be single most crucial factor to be considered in individuals’ horoscopes. The factor is the ‘rising sign’, i.e. the sign of the zodiac that is on the horizon at the time of birth. At whatever date a person is born it is possible for him or her to have any one of the 12 zodiacal signs as the ascendant or the ‘rising sun’. Now as we all know that there are all together 12 zodiac signs as per the Western Astrology and calculations are done by astrologers on the basis of an individuals zodiac sign.
The 12 zodiac are classified as follows according to the date of birth:
1.Aries (The Ram) – March 21 – April 20
2.Taurus (The Bull) – April 21 – May 21
3.Gemini (The Twins) – May 22 – June 22
4.Cancer (The Crab) – June 23 – July 23
5.Leo (The Lion) – July 24 – August 23
6.Virgo (The Virgin) – August 24 – September 23
7.Libra (The Balance) – September 24 – October 23
8.Scorpio (The Scorpion) – October 24 – November 22
9.Sagittarius (The Archer) – November 23 – December 22
10.Capricorn (The Goat) – December 23 – January 19
11.Aquarius (The Water Carrier) – January 20 – February 19
12.Pisces (The Fishes) – February 19 – March 20.
Finding your ascendant
What is needed to get an overall impression of a personality is not only knowledge of what sign the sun was in at the time of birth, but it also depends upon the sign on the horizon at the actual time of birth. In order to attain a reasonable accuracy in calculating the ascendant, the following steps need to be followed:
Step1. Note down the local time and the place of birth.
Step2. Adjust this clock time for any reasonable variations, such as Daylight Saving Time or British Summer Time, which were in force at the time of birth.
Step3. Look up and note down the star time.
Step4. Take the clock time of birth as adjusted for seasonal composite pictures.
This gives us an overview of the various zodiac signs and the calculation of the ascendants in astrology.

Stock Market Astrology Part VIII
Technical Analysis alone cannot identify the initial primary trend and
thinks that the start of the Primary Bull Market is a bear rally. Conversely
the start of a Primary Bear Market is seen erroneously as a bull decline.
Stock Market Astrology sees these initial points in an intuitive flash ! It
is clear that Predictive Astrology can supplement Technical and Fundamental
We do not claim that all predictions of Stock Market Astrology will be cent
percent accurate. If it was so then astrologers would own half the world. We
can say that Probability for accuracy is 70% ! While Mundane Astrology gives
us the political map, Financial Astrology gives the economic picture of the
nation. Technical and Fundamental Analyses are good diagnostic tools in the
stock market. But they cannot attain perfection without Predictive
Astrology, which itself is another diagnostic tool !
Determination of Trends as per Dow Jones Theory
Let us analyse how Dow Jones determines trends.
“Successive rallies penetrating preceding high points with ensuing declines
terminating above preceding low points offer a bullish indication.
Conversely, failure of rallies to penetrate previous high points with
ensuing declines carrying below former low points is bearish. Inferences so
drawn are useful in appraising secondary reactions and are of major
importance in forecasting the resumption, continuation or change of the
primary trend. A rally or a decline is defined as one or more daily
movements resulting in a net reversal of direction exceeding three percent
of the prices of either average. Such movements have but little authority
unless confirmed in direction by both averages, but the confirmation need
not occur on the same day. ” ( The ABC of Stock Speculation ).
What it means is that the Bear Phase is characterised by falling resistance
and support levels & Bull Phase vice versa !
Theoretically nice, but all this is very difficult to implement.
Intuition alone can identify trends
Determination of trends is the major factor for stock market success. We
find that there is confusion in applying the principles of Technical
Analysis. A crash of the market may be seen as a bull decline and the start
of a Primary Bull Market may appear as a bear rally. Again the duration of
the Bull Phase or a Bear Phase is not known to Technical Analysis.
The British philosopher Schelling defined Intuition as ” that faculty of the
Absolute, which perceives the Absolute as the Absolute “. In other words,
Intuition alone can see Reality. Aurobindo averred that ” behind the
phenomenal world is the Transcendent Reality which Intuition alone can see”.
It was Intuition alone which revealed the Ultimate Reality to Aurobindo,
Ramana Maharshi & Sankara .
If Absolute Reality can be known by Intuition, why not stock market trends ?
Celestial causes for the rise of the Indian economy
Jupiter, the significator of finance, in India’s lunar second, in the House
of Wealth can only mean an economic boom. Rising GDP growth ( as per CMIE
8.5 % ), rising agricultural growth ( 4.3%), rising forex reserves ( $ 276
billion ) and rising exports. Steel exports have risen to 47%, software 34%
and auto 34%. . It is true that one negative factor, Saturn in the 2nd
imports ) is detrimental to the Indian economy.
Dow Jones Theory is not Infallible
It is not an infallible system of beating the market and its successful use
requires serious study and the summing up of evidence must be impartial. The
wish must never be allowed to father the thought
There are slight complaints that our articles are too informative or too
intellectual. What we have done here is to acquaint ourselves with the Dow
Jones Theory, which are the collective research findings of Charles Dow,
Hamilton & Nelson and to incorporate Intuition, which alone can determine
trends ! Right information is crucial to success. Adam Smith, the father of
Economics remarked that ” there is no substitute for information. The
market is not a roulette wheel. Good ideas and good research are an absolute
necessity in the market place “. We are one of the best researched dotcoms
in the world. Stay invested and we will warn you about the dangers ahead !
