The different forms astrology has adopted around the world, Western. Vedic or Chinese to name a few all provide monetary content because finances have a significant impact on all our lives, including the extremely wealthy, who the majority might believe never concern themselves over financial issues, forgetting that should they lose their wealth, and it can happen because all things are possible, their financial concerns can end up mirroring the concerns of many millions. Something that astrology does acknowledge is this possibility and financial astrology is a mechanism by which many wealthy individuals avoid financial calamity.
It is a well known fact that leaders of empires and dynasties used to publicly acknowledge the use of astrology as a means to direct their national efforts and followed astrological readings as a means to achieving greater wealth. This early form of astrology continues today and financial astrology is its latest guise. The principals of the past in relation to astrology and financial astrology continue little changed today although development of these principals have, hopefully, helped make interpretations more accurate. Obviously distinguishing a financial interpretation compared with that of a single individual requires more intensive research simply because of its more complex nature. The complexity of financial readings are, by their very nature made up from a combination of individual interpretations that are themselves encapsulated within a specific range i.e. A separate company that the astrologer is researching. How the company has progressed since its inception with changes to its work force and especially its management team are of paramount importance. Simply because a company has survived ten years and appears financially sound does not mean that this situation will last. Changes in manpower will have an important impact on the company's opportunities to continue, a mistaken promotion to a top level job could be the catalyst that sees a company’s profits falter or even fail.
Astrology offers insights especially in respect to individuals likely to play a significant role in the future of a company, and financial astrology also offers a direction when choices in regard to matters pertinent to a company’s performance are required. For example whether to commit to investments or when to commit to investments can be discovered using the same planetary laws used to identify future prospects for individuals. Several astrological methodologies are employed to accomplish this including ascertaining previous planetary movements at fortunate times in order to utilize this information by comparison with a current celestial configuration and thereby establish the action to take including none at all, and financial astrology is capable of providing this highly useful information.
