Mind Your E's & Q's: Elements & Quadruplicities in Financial Markets
Written & published: September 2007

In the Zodiac Wheel the Signs are grouped in various combinations. These groupings gather together Signs that resonate with each other in particular ways. The two foremost groupings are known as Elements and Quadruplicities.

This article looks at the Sun's annual journey through the lens of these two groupings and examines whether and how that journey correlates with the FTSE 100 index and the Sterling to Dollar exchange rate.

The passage of the Moon and planets through the Elements and Quadruplicities is not included here in order to keep the article a reasonable length; their absence from this article should not be taken as an indication of their importance.

The information provided below cannot be used for investing and must not be construed as intended to be or suitable for any such activity; the purposes of the article are to show astrology in action, and to provide food for thought about the resonance between planet Earth and the Solar system of which it is part.


There are four elements, so out of twelve Zodiac Signs there are three per Element, as shown below:

Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Wheel of Elements


There are three Quadruplicities - Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable - so out of twelve Zodiac Signs there are four for each, each grouping making a cross in the chart wheel:

Cardinal: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
Fixed: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
Mutable: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

Wheel of Quadruplicities


In the FTSE 100 stock market index the Sun's passage through the Elements forms a subtle pattern that is strongest in the Earth, Air, and Water Elements, and has the weakest correlation in the Fire Element.

FTSE 100 - Sun in the Elements
FTSE 100 - Sun in Elements
Passing through the Quadruplicities, the Sun's correlation with this index is observed quite evenly through all three - Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable.

FTSE 100 - Sun in the Quadruplicities
FTSE100 - Sun in Quadruplicities
Combining the two patterns, we can produce the following analysis. To produce this diagram the data from 1st January 2007 was ignored. In other words, it was as if 1/1/07 was today, and all of the subsequent 2007 data was in the future, unknown to the program. This graph therefore shows the projected line along with the actual. The black thicker line is the projected, the blue thinner line is the actual:

FTSE 100 - 2007

NB The graph doesn't show the value of the index, it shows the Price Oscillator.


In the Pound Sterling to USA Dollar exchange rate, the Sun's passage through the Signs that belong to the Fire and Earth Elements forms a very subtle but consistent pattern. There is a strong up-then-down movement that is smaller in the Fire Element Signs, and then larger in the Earth Element Signs.
GBP/USD - Sun in the Elements
GBP/USD - Sun in Elements
The Sun's movement through the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable Signs is again a subtle correlation but one that is broadly consistent across each of the Quadruplicities.

GBP/USD - Sun in the Quadruplicities
GBP/USD - Sun in Quadruplicities
And here is the 2007 actual versus projected result of applying the above two patterns. the black thicker line is the projected, whilst the blue thinner line is the actual:

GBP/USD - 2007

NB The graph doesn't show the value of the exchange rate, it shows the Oscillator.


Hopefully this article suffices to show some intriguing parallels between the Sun being in the different Elements and Quadruplicities and the up-down movement of the UK stock market and the UK-USA exchange rate, perhaps giving reason to pause for thought about the idea that what is 'down here' has a connection or relevance to what is 'up there' and vice versa.
