Market analysts and financial media commentators have led individual investors to believe that daily news, quarterly earnings reports and corporate events drive stock prices. Nothing could be further from the truth. The reality is - the financial markets are a reflection of the mass psychological emotion of traders, investors and fund managers. When market participants are feeling positive, they are driven to buy. When they are feeling uncertain or negative, they are driven to sell. So what then drives human emotion? In the opinion of stock trader and author M.G. Bucholtz, the ever-changing configurations of orbiting planets and other celestial bodies in our cosmos influence our body chemistry and thereby drive human emotion. The Sun is the centre of our planetary system. The Sun emits massive amounts of solar radiation in all directions into the vastness of space. This radiation is called solar wind. This solar wind interacts with the magnetic fields around Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. These planets accept and then disburse the solar wind radiation. As the radiation is disbursed, a goodly amount of it finds its way towards the magnetic field around planet Earth. Changes in the density and speed of solar wind mean that the amount of radiation reaching Earth's magnetic field on a daily, weekly or monthly basis will be ever-changing. As a result, the intensity or flux of the Earth's magnetic field is also constantly changing. The alignment of the orbiting planets in our cosmos plays a significant role in determining how much solar radiation is deflected towards Earth's magnetic field. We all have an electrical field that runs through our tissues. Hence, basic physics demands that changes to the Earth's magnetic field will then induce subtle changes to our bodily electrical circuitry. These subtle changes are what drive our emotional responses. Human emotion changing in response to events in the cosmos is not a new concept. In the early 1900's, the venerable W.D. Gann recognized the connection between changing emotions and price fluctuations on the stock and commodity markets. His trading success realized from applying astro phenomena to the markets is legendary. The astro models pioneered by other figures from this era including Louise McWhirter and Donald Bradley are as powerful today as they were back then. This Almanac begins by offering the reader an overview of the science of Astrology. The detailed examination that then follows will show the reader how: aspect angles between the various planets and the New Moon can set the tone for the equity markets each month. the Moon transiting past certain key points in the zodiac each month aligns to short term trend changes on the New York Stock Exchange. times when Mercury, Venus and Mars are Retrograde align to trend changes on equity and commodity markets. times Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter registering maximum and minimum declination levels equate to trend changes on equity and commodity markets. times when transiting Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars make hard aspects to planetary positions in the First Trade charts of individual commodity futures are profoundly significant for traders and investors. esoteric mathematical concepts such as Gann Lines and Harmonic Lines are extraordinarily powerful tools for traders and investors to use. It is the author's sincere hope that after applying the material presented in this Almanac, readers will begin to enjoy an increased level of success with their trading and investing activity. It is further the author's hope that readers will then frequently pause to reflect on the deeper connection between the financial markets, the cosmos and the emotions of mankind.

Spooky Technology explores our understanding of the invisible technologies in our everyday lives, from objects with ‘intelligence’ to systems in our homes that talk to us (and each other). The book is an inventory of spooky technologies, compiled by Carnegie Mellon students reviewing work across art, design, HCI, psychology, human factors research, and other fields, that has been done in this field, or adjacent to it, both historically and more recently, with commentary, essays, and interviews with creators and artists. We often hear that the technologies in our everyday lives would appear to be ‘magic’ and potentially terrifying to people in the past—instantaneous communication with people all over the world, access to a vast, ever-growing resource of human knowledge right there in the palm of our hand, objects with ‘intelligence’ that can sense and talk to us (and each other). But rarely are these ‘otherworldly’ dimensions of technologies explored in more detail. There is an often unspoken presumption that the march of progress will inevitably mean we all adopt new practices, and incorporate new products and new ways of doing things into our lives—all cities will become smart cities; all homes will become smart homes. But these systems have become omnipresent without our necessarily understanding them. They are not just black boxes, but invisible: entities in our homes and everyday lives which work through hidden flows of data, unknown agendas, imaginary clouds, mysterious sets of rules which we perhaps dismiss as ‘algorithms’ or even ‘AI’ without really understanding what that means. On some level, the superstitions and sense of wonder, and ways of relating to the unknown and the supernatural (deities, spirits, ghosts) which humanity has felt in every culture throughout history have not gone away, but started to become transferred and transmuted into new forms.
The story of the history of Western astrology begins with the philosophers of Greece in the 5th century BC. the Greeks added numerology, geometry and rational thought. The philosophy of Plato and later of the Stoics made astrology respectable, and by the time Ptolemy wrote his textbook the Tetrabiblos, in the second century AD, the main lines of astrological practice as it is known today had already been laid down. In future centuries astrology shifted to Islam only to return to the West in medieval times where it flourished until the shift of ideas during the Renaissance.
