Sean Erikson, a professional trader and fund manager, presents a set of highly refined tools for advanced swing trading based upon principles of celestial mechanics and ancient geometry.
Developed and refined over 3 decades of research, trading and professional management, his astro-trading tools represent the culmination of a lifetime quest.
Horse Racing & Gambling
Many traders develop an interest in betting on horse races, since astrological and numerological factors apply to both fields.
For example, sports involve data on event time and participant biographical data like birthdates.
Gann studied works by Sepharial, whose Arcana & Keys focused on astro-numerological horse race betting.
Prandelli's work is popular with swing traders due to the usefulness of his Gann tools which project Key Price Levels and Cyclical Turning Points.
His courses use Gann's Planetary Longitude Lines and Master Time Cycle combined with his KEY Risk Management and Trading Strategies to produce10-15% monthly returns consistently.
Baumring Financial List
Dr. Baumring compiled long reading lists even more comprehensive than Gann's, comprising works having key elements directly applicable to Gann Theory and Cosmological Economics.
Any student wanting to explore particular fields in depth will find Baumringís lists to be indispensable, since they over important but unfamiliar topics.
In Gannís day the two primary focuses for trading were stocks or commodities, but most principles taught for stock equally applied to commodities.
Without ignoring Gannís commodity work we provide works focusing on equity markets and individual stocks, or discussing the stock market, revealing valuable techniques with a scientific or esoteric perspective.
Ancients and some modern alternative thought has discovered cosmic influences on material and mental reality going beyond traditional science.
New systems of connection and propagation of force and energy derive from the work of Pythagoras, Tesla, Walter Russell, Schwaller de Lubicz and many others who have studied wider cosmic energies.
A fundamental principle of Cosmological Economics is the interconnection between galaxies, solar systems, stars, and planets, along with their interactive influences.
For example, the rotation of our galaxy is responsible for temperature fluctuations on Earth as a result of cosmic ray variations as we rotate through the spiral arms.
W.D. Gann Works
We stock the complete collection of the works of W.D. Gann.
His private courses represent the most important of his writings, going into much greater detail than the public book series. Our 6 Volume set of Gann's Collected Writings includes supplementary rare source materials, and is the most reliable compliation of Gann's unadulterated vital work.
Dr. Jerome Baumring
The work of Dr. Baumring is the core inspiration upon which this entire website is based. Baumring is the only known modern person to have cracked the code behind WD Gannís system of trading and market order.
Baumring found and elaborated the system of scientific cosmology at the root of Gannís Law of Vibration.
There is no other Gann teaching that gets close to the depth of Baumringís work.
Los Angeles Times Article on the Sacred Science Translation Society
Louis Sagahun of the LA Times interviews Brad Stewart regarding the Sacred Science Translation Society and its roots in the esoteric theories and teachings of W.D. Gann’s Law of Vibration.
In 2007, Los Angeles Times staff writer Louis Sahagun contacted the Sacred Science Institute while doing research for his book, Master of the Mysteries: The Life of Manly Palmer Hall, for information, and references related to various esoteric subjects. During several discussions, the subject of the Sacred Science Translation Society came up and it was explained to him that the Society evolved from and was funded by a group of financial market analysts involved in research into the theories of W. D. Gann. Mr. Sahagun was surprised to learn of the cross-over of between the metaphysical sciences and a school of financial market analysis and forecasting and wanted to learn more. He discussed the subject with his editor at the Times who was also interested, and an interview was arranged soon after, which resulted in this article which was run on front two pages of the Lifestyle section in the Saturday, July 28, 2007 edition of the LA Times.
Sacred Science Institute, a small publisher, offers a different book of numbers
Investors seek keys to financial success in translations of obscure, even mystical texts
By Louis Sahagun, Times Staff Writer
Saturday, July 28, 2007
Brad Stewart was a teenage stock trader in 1986 when he went to a West Los Angeles financial bookstore and stumbled across a strange, smoke-filled back room devoted to an odd science. The co-owner of the store, Jerome Baumring, sat with his cowboy-booted feet on a desk and chain-smoked while staring through owlish glasses at a computer screen filled with stock market quotes. Baumring was surrounded on three sides by teetering stacks of books, mostly rare original editions about financial markets, music theory, astrophysics and mysticism. If properly understood, he told Stewart, the books offered the astute investor a better understanding not just of life, but of the world of finance.
Soon Stewart was "buying hundreds of books I needed to understand the subject." Over time, Stewart amassed a library of tomes on such things as Pythagorean harmonics, celestial mechanics and Jewish mysticism, and established himself as the go-to guy for such material among financial traders with similar interests. Now, the 40-year-old son of a Laguna Beach real estate investor presides over the Sacred Science Institute, a small publishing firm specializing in English translations of some of the most complicated and convoluted tracts ever written. The audience: people who see geometrical connections between the architecture of Hindu temples and fluctuations in the Dow Jones industrial average.
Stewart operates out of a chalet compound outside Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains west of Palm Springs. The company operates under an unusual working relationship between scholars and translators with an academic interest in rare scientific and religious works, and Stewart's clients — about 400 people he likes to call "my financial guys." These book buyers tend to live in the world's financial centers, such as New York City, Singapore and London. The Sacred Science Institute is 12 years old and has published about 500 books, mostly rare financial market treatises. Most of his clients are fans of financial wizard W.D. Gann, whose century-old books are so dense that many students give up before gaining an inkling of his "square of nine" investment techniques. Stewart's clients aren't reading these texts to find coded references to Dell's stock price on a specific date. They read to discern larger patterns in how the universe operates.
Settling into a chair at a large wooden table in his living room and opening an elephantine edition, Stewart said, "I'll show you why my guys are into this." "This baby begins with Pascal's arithmetical triangle and logarithmic spirals," he said, "and then just keeps going and going through Hindu chakras, the Egyptian alphabet and the harmonic patterns in the stained-glass windows of medieval cathedrals." "The point is that this is a mysteriously organized universe," he said. "The market — its prices and times — move in accordance with its harmonic rhythms; there's a nonrandom element to it all."
"The point is that this is a mysteriously organized universe," he said. "The market — its prices and times — move in accordance with its harmonic rhythms; there's a nonrandom element to it all."
The big book on the table had an equally hefty title: "Natural Architecture: A Report by Petrus Talemarianus on the Establishment of a 'Golden Rule,' According to the Principles of Tantrism, Taoism, Pythagoreanism and the Kabala, Serving to Fulfill the Laws of Universal Harmony and Contributing to the Accomplishment of the Great Work." Published in 1949 in French and restricted to 252 copies for members of a secret society, "Natural Architecture" was recently translated into English by Ariel Godwin and edited by his father, Joscelyn, a professor of music at Colgate University in New York. "You don't have to get the math to understand the basic idea, that numbers are the basis of the universe," Joscelyn Godwin said. "By the time you finish reading, you believe."
As for putting that knowledge to work in the stock market, however, Godwin joshed, "I just wish I had the money, the time and the temperament to try it out." But are such things actually related to the stock price of Microsoft in the morning? "Absolutely not," said critic John Allen Paulos, a professor of mathematics at Temple University in Philadelphia. "Why not study belly button lint? The translations might be difficult undertakings, but the financial codes and formulas that people think they discern from them have nothing to do with the stock market."
"It can take years to translate some of these books. But my guys will wait, because there's no place else to get them."
Still, Stewart has his fans. Future offerings will include "The Archeometer" by Saint-Yves d'Alveydre. The works will sell for as much as $350 each, for those who wish to buy only one, and $250 for those who join the Sacred Science Translation Society. Exactly when the books will be released is hard to say. "I have no deadlines," Stewart said. "It can take years to translate some of these books. But my guys will wait, because there's no place else to get them."
Regular customers include Steve Rideout, a natural-gas trader and hedge fund developer who believes that "while the predictive world of finance is difficult," mastering the geometrical codes hidden within such works as Plato's "Timaeus" will give him just enough of an edge "to actually make some money." Commodity trader Robert Tam said two decades of intense study of the relationship between science and religion has led to spiritual renewal.
"It takes a lot of homework figuring out these ideas — initially, it killed my social life," he said. "But as I delved deeper and deeper into Plato, geometry, the movement of the planets and music, I found myself also moving deeper into my own Orthodox Judaism." Stewart appreciates such connections as well.
"This material is not for everyone," he said. "And I always tell people, 'Don't expect to read a few books and get rich.' In fact, I'm not even all that interested in the stock market anymore. "Money doesn't solve the big questions, the ones that resonate with the heart," he said. "For me and many of my financial market guys, it was simply the stick that was whacking us down the road to the real prize: a better understanding of the order of the universe."
What was that?
The Sacred Science Institute publishes works that are dauntingly complex, as seen in this excerpt from an obscure book called "Natural Architecture": "According to forma or discontinuity, the sum of the numbers, for each column, innumerates all the possible options between things defined by their number, combining these in all possible ways, and thus it signifies liberty of human will, which, being one, can at the same time be all, in that it participates in Unity but is also limited by the multiplicity of things."
Approaches to trading begin with choice of a time window.
Day or intraday trading focuses on short term swings, generally not holding positions overnight.
Although Gann, trading before the electroinc age, did not favor short term trading, his techniques do work on this level, since similar patterns exist on every time frame whether very small or very large.
There is a close correlation between Astrological Economics and Cosmological Economics. We have one of the largest collections of works on Financial Astrology (Astroeconomics) in the world.
These studies are very important in developing wider theories of causation, and our catalog contains most works of value written on the subject.
Gann gave much attention to grain markets, and in particular Wheat, Corn and Soybeans. Gann had a Wheat chart back to 65 BC, which Baumring took back to 1200 BC.
Long historical data made Wheat a premier market to study long term cycles, and grain markets depend on weather, a secondary phenomenon which Gann also studied and analyzed.
Analytical systems, techniques and tools based upon the use of geometry are significantly effective when applied to the analysis of market trends.
The stock and commodity markets have a history stretching over millennia, from the Bible to the present day, furnishing data on sun spots, planetary changes, weather cycles, volcanoes, earthquakes, solar variances, and other influences on financial markets.
Gann charted Wheat back to 65 BC and Baumring took this back to 1200 BC.
A detailed exploration of W. D. Gann's Mechanical Trading System illustrating Gann's trading strategy over a period of 15 years when Gann turned $3000 into $6 million, producing a 1400% return in 8 months. This study provides the foundation that Gann required for ALL students, which still works today producing 570% return in the S&P in 2014 in 3 months!
Weather has a strong influence on the potential prices of crops, so Astrological weather forecasting was of great interest to market analysts.
We publish George McCormack's Long Range Astro-weather Forecasting which is considered one of the better classics.
A.J. Pearce also wrote some sections on weather forecasting which are classics.
Modern astronomy is a pale derivative of the true "logic of the cosmos", Astrology, the science of all-pervasive relationships between cosmos and man.
Early proponents of "astronomy" were ALL students of the Astrological arts, from Ptolemy, to Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Tyco Brahe, and Newton.
Franz Bardon's magical works present a path of initiation through 3 levels of the Tarot.
The first book teaches internal training, the second teaches the science of Magical Evocation, and the third teaches transcendental methods of the Kaballah.
Frabato presents biographical informatioin about Bardon, with commentaries by friends and students.
Natural Order has from ancient times looked deeply into principles of order behind nature and the universe, like phyllotaxis which governs the placement of leaves on plants, the harmonic ratios between the placement of the planets in the solar system, or the spirilic mathematics of galaxies.
Natural order reveals magical relationships in the natural world.
In the 1700-1800ís Natural Philosophers studied a wide range of scientific subjects, while not overly specializing in narrow and limited fields as scientists do today.
WD Gann espoused this more holistic system of science, where the different branches were more easily integrated and the grand vision of the scientific system was more interlinked.
