Of course they ask their teacher, and hope the teacher will suggest a readable book.
Usually the teacher explains that reading W.D. Gann’s original books is a challenge in decoding. They continue with a few references to books written by current researchers. However, recommending one that is written in a style that is elementary enough for the beginning student to understand is difficult – perhaps impossible!
Mysterious and elusive W.D. Gann was the first modern master of Financial Astrology. His writings are eclectic and a challenge to decipher. However, his books are filled with tremendous insights as to market cycles and often referred to by researchers of Financial Astrology when predicting the outcome of a current cycle pattern. He was considered the Master of Time, but many researchers only describe him as the master of numbers.
The first problem a financial astrologer faces is where to start when making a market analysis using astrology. The answer is to check out the Masters, and Gann is the original master. He gave a very simple answer: Jupiter and Saturn.
In The Master of Time, An Epos of W.D. Gann’s Master Time Factor, by Victor Ledeboer, the author starts with a biography of W.D. Gann, and gives an account of Gann’s true mastery, the connection between planetary cycles and the timing of the markets. He demonstrates the Square of Nine and then a historical review of the Jupiter and Saturn cycle and it’s influence on the financial market.
Speaking as a teacher, this is a book I’m happy to see. After my students have read about half of my Textbook For Financial Astrology they become aware of the masters of Financial Astrology and W.D. Gann is number one. They wonder about his application of cycles and their value to the study. Students of astrology study each planet one by one, however it is the combination of planets aspecting each other that moves markets in either direction.
The Master of Time, An Epos of W.D. Gann’s Master Time Factor, by Victor Ledeboer is a must read for beginning students of Financial Astrology. The book illustrates the most important basic cycle – the Jupiter and Saturn cycle – and it is where one must start in applying the basic principles of astrology to the financial markets.
