Transit Aspect Oscillator  A Global (personal) Psychological and Economic Indicator

       TAO 9 Applications:

        To the best of my knowledge, from Donald Bradley's efforts in the 1960's to the present time, there has not been a published astronomical oscillator correlating real-time with global stock indexes as the TAO 9 does. The study of the mathematical nature of the TAO  and its correlations with multiple realms of human activities has the potential to become a new field of scientific endeavor.
       The three TAO values (short, intermediate, and long term) and trends have statistical reliability and significance, and, therefore, probable predictive value  relative to global stock prices.  The creation of the TAO oscillators has been a 30 year project.   
       The rise and fall of global psychological optimism and pessimism correlate with the rise and fall of global wealth, as measured by stock prices. When the TAO 9 is below zero and falling, fear and pessimism dominate, manifesting in stock market declines.  When the TAO 9 is above zero and rising, happiness and optimism dominate, synchronistic, statistically, with rising stock market prices.  
      SOMC combines the TAO 9's intrinsic value with 25+ years of  technical market analysis and developing technical trading systems to time the price movements of the stock and commodity markets effectively.
      The graph of the aspectarian (that assigns positive and negative numbers to every degree of planetary pair angular separation) is not shown.  This graph (not shown) happens to validate some traditional astrological tenets on the nature of aspects. The TAO 9, however, is strictly astronomical and mathematical.  SOMC uses both the TAO 9 and relatively simple mechanical models to time and trade  intermediate and long term.

10 - 17 0805: 10-6 "Finally???...Probably."  Not.  Today???  More probable...  TZA is a longer term buy.

10 - 10 0800: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft, et.al. vulnerable = ad limitatio ns to be imposed

10 - 9 0800: Not quite probably enough.  Again, equity highs early.  Later, some negative astro into 10/10.

10 - 6 0750: Finally???... Probably.

10 - 5 0805: In the last 1 1/2hrs, VIX had a buy spike.  Today, equities irregular early, and again models say lower later. Returning ~1300.

10 - 4 0800: Today, equity marginal highs near open.  Then, much lower into 10/5-6-9+.  Iceberg dead ahead...

10 - 3 0730: Equities grinding higher continues.  Patience and discipline.  At least VIX is now near its lower limit...

10 - 2 0800: Equities irregular early, lower by noon into close.  ExpO Zs are risk off.  October reverses Sept, and then some...

9 -  1 0750:  Seasonality (pre Labor day) boost is over.  ETVF models lost. Now for reversals, and Irma, and subpoenas, and Congress chaos...

                   And now finally, more notable assessments that DJT is less than sane...

02/17 0700: An illusion (delusion):  DJT policies can ever be funded, much less work.  Awaiting the arrival of the tidal waves of health system, budget, tax, immigration and foreign policy dysfunction.  He's too ill to lie well.  Subpoenas/indictments issued by the Eclipse.

TAO 9 :   Brief TAO 9 summary and TAO 8 Graph

    The TAO 8 correlated with the SP 500, 1/1/1980 through 08/31/2014 PPMC is p < .0001, >1:10,000 against chance.    

          Pearson Product-Moment Correlation for TAO 8 and SP 500:   n=3602,   r=+0.48, p < .0001, which means that the TAO 8 correlated positively with the SP 500, both rising and falling, greater than 1:10,000 against chance.  This strength of correlation implies a causal mechanism, which is yet unknown.  As a comparison, to be very sure that the long sought after Higgs boson had been found, scientists used a 1:10,000 confidence level: p <.0001.  Current modern physics has no viable mechanism for explaining the TAO 8 results.  That is for future generations.

    TAO 9 Transiting Aspect Oscillator is a compilation of four fundamental primary concepts and functions:

1)  An Aspectarian based upon the weighted harmonics of the numbers 2 and 3, which gives positive/negative values to the transiting angular separation of each planetary pair

2)  The selection of 25 specific transiting planetary pairs used in the TAO 8 calculations

3)  Mathematical summations of those Aspectarian values (both exponential and unique astro averages) to generate the Quick TAO, Slow TAO and TAO 9

4)  Zeroing those summations over the selected time frames to create scientifically applicable oscillators


     The TAO 9 is a 100% mathematical, quantitative, zeroed oscillator that can be compared to real world, real time realms of human life.  The TAO 8 happens to highly correlate with the Global equities markets, and other financial, social and political measures.   The TAO 8 is a Directional Astronomical Indicator.

     As TAO 9 rises, Global Psychology tends to rise and equities/assets tend to gain value reliably (1:10,000 against chance).  When the TAO 9 falls, Global Psychology declines, pessimism emerges, and equities/assets tend to fall in value.


TAO 8: 1/ 1/ 1997 to 3/ 31/ 2014    Vertical is yearly/quarterly.

                TAO 8, red. Quick TAO, blue. Slow TAO, orange.  SP 500, black. SP 500, BLS Inflation Adjusted, light black and the lowest equity cycle on the graph.

8/ 11/ 14:   The TAO 8 is a zeroed oscillator, now falling from its highest peak, yet for all of early 2014 favors optimism. All declines have been brief and bought.  The Russell 2000, frequently a trend leader, has shown the greatest weakness.  And now with the steepening TAO 8 decline will come increased pessimism, depressing events, social unrest, political instability and asset vulnerability.  The 2015 season will favor selling equity rallies.

The TAO 9: An astro economic indicator, similar to but distinct from the Bradley model

     1)  100% objective, mathematical, astronomic and scientific Transiting Aspect Oscillator

     2)  A real-time, directional astro indicator, now with more than 1:10,000 significance

             a) TAO 9 high/rising brings optimism, raises equities, asset values and stability

             b) TAO 9 low/falling activates pessimism, erodes assets and adds social instability

Technical Chart:   IWM  Daily  08/21/17  0910cdt

    8-22:  Expecting a 1-2% bounce to 137-139.  Then another leg lower.  This leg will be phase 2, accelerated declines into/through October.  Target ~121, then 110.  The Eclipse, directly affecting DJT for 6+months now, loosens his screws even more into this fall.  His political demise is certain.  The damage he causes globally is the major risk.  The MACD tripped negative 7/27 and again 8/8.  The WMAs bias is lower.

    The Bear market has begun.  Enjoy it with inverse equity ETFs.

9 - 27  1500cdt              NYSE       ExpO  Z              5/16/16 - 9/27/17

      That NYSE is close to a peak is evident.  At minimum, stalling for 1-2 weeks.  At maximum, a major high.

Seasonality, the other ExpO Zs, Eclipse remnants, and the FED  favor being near/at a major high.

     THE ASTRO  TAO (RED)  5-16-16 to 6-6-17, with the NYSE (BLACK) and Astro Sub Indexes.  TAO is an objective Transit Aspect Oscillator, and is ending a 7 month rise.   TAO is primarily Global Psychological Index.TAO >Zero & Rising = optimism.  TAO <Zero & Falling = pessimism and asset devaluation.  From early March, TAO goes below zero = pessimism and negative events dominate = equities/assets sustain declines.

     This TAO model was created in 1985, modified in 2016, and has a positive, 1:10,000 (p < 0.0001), n = 12,064, Pearson correlation,

TAO with DJIA, 1900 - present.  TAO is 100% objective: numbers in = planetary angular separations, then Sine formula, = TAO oscillator out.

                     3) Emotionally Unstable, 4) Paranoid and 5) Antisocial (to varying degrees) = DJT is a global risk.  "Wild Man". 

                     DJT's  Dx's are entrenched for life.  For DJT, all "perceived" threats become "real", and are attacked.  Early dementia/ALZ.
