The New York Stock Exchange Natal Chart

Astrologers use the positions of the planets at the time of a person's birth (their natal chart) to make predictions about crucial turning points in that person's life. As the planets make certain aspects to those natal positions, the person's life is influenced in a way that is a function of the natal planet, the aspecting planet, and the angle of aspect (typically 0°, 45°, 60°, 90° and 180°). In the same way, the New York Stock Exchange has a natal chart for its birth on May 17, 1792.
5/171792: NYSE Natal Chart

You will notice that Saturn and Earth are on critical 72° harmonic points, while Uranus, Jupiter and Mars are near 36°. Was it the NYSE natal chart that determined the pentagram's location on the chart, or was it the planets' configuration on an already determined pentagram that somehow influenced the NYSE into being? Whatever the case, we now can see how the NYSE natal chart is predictive in terms of future stock market behavior.

On August 1, 1914, the NYSE closed due to war in Europe, just as Uranus crossed the 72° harmonic opposite its natal location.

It re-opened on December 12 that year to major lows.


  1. In regards to your question about the origination of the pentagram, I too am curious to know more. Although this is 150 years after the NYSE, it implies to me that the roots predate it. Within an orb of two or three degrees... if you browse around about the accuracy of Google Earth's North orientation you will find discussions regarding errors which could account for some of the orb. Look at Geo and Helio for 9/11/1941 the building's natal date. Spooky? Yes I think so. The rabbit hole is way too deep!

    1. Very interesting Anonymous!!! Good work!

      And 9/11/01 has Saturn at the Pentagon's natal Jupiter (helio). Wow!

  2. Finally, somebody is looking at the 72 degree angle and its derivatives such as 36 degrees. That the orientation is heliocentric makes the article even more interesting.
