Who Should Invest or Speculate

By Dr. Shanker Adawal

The dictionary gives the following definitions, “Invest to lay out money or capital in the purchase of property for permanent use as opposed to speculation. Think twice before making an investment in which risk is involved. If there is surety of gain then must invest. Real estate, bonds have been considered to be the safest investments, but in recent years, with interest rates fluctuating wildly between 10 and 20 per cent, bonds have lost its stability and now become as speculative as stocks. While falling interest rates result in rising bond prices, stocks will outperform bonds. What then a traditional individual would do with his or her surplus funds in order to build up a nest-egg for the future? Here natal astrology would provide the answer, through the following:

(1) One must have an accurate natal chart.
(2) Look to the second house of the natal chart, which indicates money to be made by the native through his own efforts, i.e., through investment in conservative or growth stocks. He will succeed if the Sun, Moon, Venus or Jupiter is in the second house or rule the sign that is on the cusp of the second house. He will have difficulties if Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto is involved.

(3) Look to the fifth house of the natal chart, which indicates money to be made through speculation. Successful results will be obtained if the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter or Neptune (the planet of speculation) is in the fifth house or on its cusp. Losses will occur if Mars, Saturn, Uranus or Pluto is involved.
(4) However, an afflicted Jupiter or Neptune in the fifth house is indicative of bad judgment, due to over optimism, while a well-aspected Saturn in the fifth house would indicate caution.

(5) The conservative investor will probably have Saturn in either the second or fifth houses. Such an individual should put his or her surplus funds into Certificates of Deposit, which are guaranteed by the U. S. Government or in the higher interest paying Money Market Funds, which, although not guaranteed by the Government, are practically risk free.
