In this article, we focus on the fundamentals, namely the comparison of the real price of oil with the transit of Saturn through the signs. We have monthly data for the real oil price (the nominal oil price adjusted for changes in the US consumer price index-all items) from 1946 to late 2008. When we examine this data in terms of proportional representation (log form) we note that the oil price has tended to jump around quite a bit. At the same time, there are periods when it is low and high.
In the next graph we see how the oil price tends to reflect the passage of Saturn into signs. In Aries, Saturn becomes debilitated and hence quite weak. It is in this sign that that the oil price tends to be quite low. By comparison, when Saturn enters the royal sign of Leo, the oil price tends to be at a high level. This is consistent with the fundamentals of Systems' Approach to Mundane Vedic Astrology.
By focusing on the fundamentals of astrological placements it is possible to see basic trends of important mundane phenomena.
