George Bayer was one of the most successful – and enigmatic – financial astrologers of the 20th century.
Like W. D. Gann, he was an astro-trading pioneer.
His books on astro-trading and market analysis with planetary factors are hard to come by.
He privately published much of his work in the 1940’s.
But the insights of George Bayer are still valuable today.
That’s one of the things that came up in my interview yesterday with Larry Pesavento.
We had a great conversation on his show on TFNN.
A Personal George Bayer Connection
Larry talked about meeting George Bayer’s daughter, Georgia.
It was an encounter I had never heard about before.
We chatted about George Bayer in the midst of other topics.
Like current market trends.
And the impact of Mercury retrograde.
We focused on the significance of the Mercury direct station.
We checked out the influence of Neptune as well.
Not to mention the Mercury retrograde return on Pearl Harbor Day.
These are all key events likely to impact the markets in the coming weeks.
Here’s the full video recording of our conversation:
As I noted above, Bayer’s work is well worth studying if you want to master astro-trading.
He understood that forecasts can be made quite successfully by using repeating cycles of what happened previously.
That’s one of the keys to astro-trading.
Here are a couple of Bayer’s comments about astrology and the markets:
- “An egg is our number 0, the beginning of all things. Just check an astronomical ephemeris and see how often important movements begin in all sorts of stocks or commodities when a planet reaches the ‘egg’ in declination or latitude, or even in longitude!”
- “At the time a planet is within [the halo of the Sun] I have found that such a planet is useless and has little or no effect; but on either side of the halo, it again has its effect upon human beings as well as on stocks or commodities that it is present. The halo of the Sun is measured in degrees on each side of the sun (about 10 degrees).”
By the way, Larry Pesavento also mentions Bayer’s contributions in some of his books on trading techniques. Larry, like George Bayer, is an inspiration himself!
