In ancient times, major decisions in commerce were always made with the advice of seers, oracles, and horoscopes. Possibly, because of the world economic situation in the past decade, this practice has gained even more popularity. It is a tendency that comes from wanting to make sure that business will be conducted successfully. The number of businessmen who are interested in getting business horoscopes grows daily.
Philosophical Basis of Horoscopes in Business
The application of astrology and horoscopes to business is based on the belief that planets are the source of clear and well-balanced instructions based on the laws of nature laws, which determine what people are, how they live and move. Fire, air, earth, water, animals, humans are all subject to and can be aided by the movement of the planets – movements which cannot be estranged from anything that has life in it.
Studying the influence of planets is the key to knowing what a person and his dealings on earth will be worth; and what he can do to prepare for life’s occurrences. It follows therefore that the best way to reap maximum profit out of a man’s material business is to make it conform to the astrological laws.
Applying Horoscopes to Business
Both Chinese and Hindu horoscopes devote much attention to business. Hindu business astrology for example, makes recommendations as to what business is best suited to an individual. It also indicates the good and bad times for implementing effective business decisions.
Business horoscopes address questions such as when it is auspicious to set up a business, what business a person should set up, when a businessman shall see profit, when the business should go global, how capital can be built, enjoyed and preserved. These horoscopes deal with the concern of disciplining every function of business to ensure that it becomes a successful enterprise by providing guidance on how the business can be run in cooperation with the laws of nature.
The business horoscope is basically derived from calculating business prospects from a person’s horoscope. The combinations arising out of an individual’s horoscope are the basis for deciding which businesses are appropriate to pursue. Predictions are made after studying the important houses governing success in business in relation to the person’s chart.
