Business Astrology / Astrology For Business

Why astrology?
Unbeknownst to most of us, there are larger cycles and patterns that underlie each day’s potential – the Universe’s plan! While we’d laugh at someone trying to get a tan at midnight, or planting their garden in the middle of a cold winter, there are far less obvious cycles that are just as important to successfully conducting your business and daily life. These cycles impact us regardless of our thoughts, feelings, or attitudes, and allow us to choose the best times for our purposes.

How does astrology relate to business?
Just as there’s a time for every purpose under heaven, there are appropriate times for business activities too. J.P. Morgan, Walt Disney and many Asian companies used astrology to time business deals, sign contracts, start new companies, introduce products, launch web sites, and other major activities. Astrology reveals the natural cycles or the Divine Plan of the day, so we can know what activities are most appropriate.

How is astrology used in business?
Astrology has many uses for business. Some of them include being able to see an organization’s cycles, strengths and challenges, both from the beginning and over time. This includes information about the company finances, products, sales/marketing, management, operations, facilities, legal issues, distribution, research, company reputation and more. A company’s cycles show the challenges and opportunities for the next year (or longer), as well as their timing.

How else can I use astrology in business?
Astrology can also be used by businesses to determine the best locations for expanding, seeking new clients, developing supplier relations, distributors etc. This is known as locational astrology. Another branch, relationship astrology, allows businesses to know ahead of time which people will work best as a team, which person will best fit the job when hiring and for counseling purposes.

What if I just have one question?
A specialized form of astrology, known as horary, answers very specific questions, such as “Should I hire this person? lease this space? buy this property? Invest in this product or company? This can be done without any birth data at all. You just call the astrologer and ask the question. Very easy and cost effective!

I’m starting a new business. What can astrology do for me?
The date, time and location a company is legally started sets up a point in time that describes all aspects of a company, its strengths and challenges, including the company finances. For example, some dates have high growth potential, and companies incorporated on these dates have a faster growth rate than average. A good date and time matches the company’s goals, products or services to a date and time when those energies are strong and supported. It ensures there are no limitations on a company and ensures good finances.

By knowing the strengths and challenges in this company “birth chart”, a company can make better strategic decisions, and know when major changes and events will occur.

Can astrology assist with my choice of a business partner?
Selection of business partners is another great way to use astrology in business. How you’ll work together, and whether you can make money together shows up in relationship charts. Having the right partner is critical to success, so find out the easy way what the strengths and pitfalls are for your relationship.

When should I use astrology to pick a date for business activities?
The short answer to this is when the outcome matters to you. Depending on how much it matters, (a small contract worth $500 versus a $1 Million contract for example) you may be able to use just an astrological calendar or need the assistance of an astrologer.

Certain cycles are associated with failure and are best avoided for important decisions, implementations, new starts, contracts and purchases. As part of the natural rhythms of life, the Universe includes frequent periods for gestating our creative ideas, reviewing things, and renewing ourselves. When we fail to observe these cosmic Time-Outs and continue to push ahead, we’re “rewarded” with nothing coming of our efforts. These particular cycles occur on average, three times per week and can last from a few minutes to over two days. They can be observed in astrological calendars or The Good Timing Guide.

How do I know if astrology is working for me?
If you’ve ever placed an ad without getting results, called a strong sales prospect only to get turned down for an appt or sale, signed a contract, or started a project that didn’t work out, you probably encountered a Time-Out cycle. We’re always experiencing the same energies shown by the planets overhead. We’re usually just not aware of it. You can learn more by having your chart or your cycles done to see how astrology is always working for you.

Can astrology help me get a job?
Yes indeed! First use astrology to know which type of job you are best suited for, and then use it to determine the best times to apply for the job you want. Choose good dates for interviews, and once you get the job, choose a good start date for your work with the company.

How can I use astrology on my own to improve my business results?
By using an inexpensive tool, The Good Timing Guide, you can know the basics such as when new projects will end well, if there’s a Time-Out, what the landscape looks like for communications, travel, mailings, sales, promotions, contracts, manufacturing, investments, and much more. A newsletter and email updates provide business and economic trends, as well as useful timing tips throughout the year. The Good Timing Guide also provides tips for personal uses, and many job activities. To learn more about this, click here.

Horary Astrology

Often in business, or life, we have a very specific question we’d like to have answered. Should I buy or lease this property? Hire this person? Invest in this product or company? Loan money to X? Contract with this company to do Y? And much more. 

Astrology has a very good method of answering these specific questions. They are called Horary Questions. There are three requirements for these questions.

1) The question must be answerable with a yes or no. (Unless it’s locating a lost item)

2) The question must be asked via phone (or in person), while actually talking to me. You cannot send me the question via an email or leave it on a voicemail.

3) You can only ask one question per day. 

Once I understand the question and we have agreed on the best way to ask the question, I then clock the time. The answer to the question is contained in the chart for the moment you ask it.  This is a very reliable way of getting an answer. Often the chart shows me why the answer is yes or no, but that’s not always the case. 

My favorite horary story is actually from another horary astrologer. She often visited the Oregon coast and wanted to buy a cottage there. She found one that she thought was perfect: the right price, lovely house, etc. Being a horary astrologer though, she asked the question about whether to buy the cottage. The answer? Not just no, but in her words, “hell no!” She could think of no reason not to buy the house, but the chart was so clear that she didn’t. Seven years later the house was buried in a mudslide. 

One of my clients began house hunting during Mercury retrograde one year. Over the three week period, she called about whether to buy four different houses. None of them got a yes. Then finally at the end of the period, her fifth house got a yes. Each home had a particular feature that she learned she wanted. The last house had at least 90% of all that she wanted, but until she saw each house, she didn’t realize she wanted each of these features. The horary questions kept her on track until she got the right place.

Sometimes we don’t know the why behind the answer. What’s more important is to get the right answer. If you have an important question you would like answered, call me at 877-524-8300. These questions are answered for the flat fee of $75 each. What a great way to save money and time by making the right choice easily!

Void of Course Moon

What is a Void of Course Moon and how does it impact a business?
A Moon which is “void of course” is no longer making any aspects (geometric aspects) to other planets while it’s in the current sign. Basically this Moon is resting until it goes into the next sign. No action is occurring. No conversations with other planets are happening. This is our indication to finish things 337

and gestate our plans too. These void Moons occur three times per week, and last from a few minutes to more than two days. On average they last 3- 10 hours.

The primary meaning of this cycle is “nothing comes of it.” So these periods are not an appropriate time for new starts. First of all, you’re missing or misunderstanding critical information during these periods. If you had that information or understood it correctly, you would make a completely different decision. When we make important decisions during these periods, we end up having to scrap our efforts and start over again. Billions of dollars, if not trillions, are wasted every year by attempting to move forward during these periods.

The Good Timing Guide refers to Void of Course Moons as Time-Outs. That’s because everyone understands that you can’t score when the ball isn’t in play. This is the exact situation we have with a void Moon: you can’t score! When you or your business start something during a Time-Out or void Moon, you’re wasting time, money and energy. A research project found that 100% of 1400 randomly-selected, bankrupt businesses all started under a void Moon or Time-Out. Signing contracts, introducing products, paying for advertising, hiring, etc. all fail.

So it’s important to wait for a better time to take important actions or make important decisions. Void Moons or Time-Outs occur all over the Earth at the same time. Since we’re in different time zones though, these times vary according to your time zone.  The Good Timing Guide shows the times for both Eastern and Pacific time zones. Adding or subtracting one hour will get you the times for other North American time zones.

Mercury Retrograde

What is Mercury Retrograde and Why Does It Affect Business and Other Projects?
Approximately every 88 days, the planet Mercury appears to move backwards from our position on Earth (like when a fast car passes a slow train) for about three weeks. During these three weeks, we typically encounter delays and miscommunications, discover mistakes that must be fixed, and rethink, repair, replan, review, and in general redo things.

These periods are not good times to sign contracts, because they’re designed to catch-up and reconsider situations. If you sign a contract, you’re likely to discover your needs were different than you thought they were, or the details in the contract may be incorrect, or misunderstood. It’s better to research your options during these periods, instead of signing a contract.

Mercury retrograde periods are tough on travel too. At the very beginning and the very end of the period, Mercury is standing still, i.e. not moving. For a guy who likes to be quick on his feet, Mercury is in despair when he’s standing still. Typically we’re moving very slowly too or not at all and we’re normally frustrated by this. It’s best if we can redirect our expectations during these periods, so we’re in harmony with it instead of frustrated.

One of the best ways to use these Mercury retrograde periods is to plan to catch-up by scheduling roughly 50% less than usual. It’s also a great time to do research or reconnect with old clients, friends or family members you haven’t seen or talked with in a long time. Making repairs, cleaning out closets, having yard sales, and recycling things are all favored activities. Reprinting anything is also favored, but it’s a rough time to print anything new, because there are often mistakes in new items. When you get with the program, these are helpful cycles!
