Giacomo Albano’s techniques center around analyzing new and full moons to predict the future performance of the stock market. According to Albano, “nothing is more suitable to modern financial markets than ancient astrology, with its rigour and its methods that are totally aimed at the predictive and ‘quantitative’ side of things.” Click here for a link to a Google translation of his web site (i.e., his web site is in Italian and this link is to the Google translation in English).
Albano appears to place great importance on the first new or full moon after the spring equinox (i.e., a “syzygy”). A syzygy is when there is nearly a straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies (e.g., the Sun, the Earth, and the Moon forming a new moon or a full Moon).
In his book on Financial Astrology, Albano describes how to determine the “dominus of the syzygy” using the Ptolemy method. Generally a planet dominates if it is in conjunction with a syzygy or is in aspect to the syzygy configuration. Albano also covers “Financial Significators” (FS) and various other topics in his book.
