In my mind, I am starting to believe that Hindus are one of the smartest races on the planet. Hence, I have been studying Hindu astrology rather than housewife astrology. Sepharial went to India and was the President of the Indian Astrological Association. Gann was also in India at the same time. As you can see, Gann had a very holistic view, which is the same as the Hindus. They have Yoga (exercise), Vastu (Feng Shui), Numerology, Palmistry, Astrology (Mundane, Medical, Horary, Astro-metrology, Natal, Electional), Astronomy, Vedic Mathematics, Massage, Ayurveda oils, Herbs, Spices and 300 Yogas (Omens) for the rules of life. No other religion has a holistic view of life like the Hindus. This religion/race will be the strongest force when we come out of the depression. The time cycles’ articles on the Hindu time periods show that you should be in cash and ready for the depression. Later, I will write more on the thirteen families that control the world through the central banking system. Currently, I am just using Hindu astrology, as it is way more accurate.


Over 30 years I have collected a number of rare horse racing and astrology books. I finally got hold of a book I had been chasing for four years. It’s called- ‘X – Raying Winners On Racing’. I have all the other books I had been chasing for years. You may be able to buy this book for a few thousand dollars if you can find one. I could have one of the largest and rarest book collections on horse racing around numerology and astrology, but of course, I wouldn’t know that for sure. Good books are extremely hard to get and I know it has taken me years to acquire them.

In the last article I did on horse racing, you will remember I predicted the favorite wouldn’t win the Melbourne Cup in 2014 and there would be some accident. Well two horses died, one of which was the favorite. An overseas horse was predicted to win (winner from German. Even the horses winning the second and third place came from overseas). The fifth house was the card winner, rule by Mercury, which is, number five.

This article was written four months before the race, using Hindu Astrology. At the time of writing, I didn’t even know who was racing. When I did the numerology, it came up with the number ‘5’. Before the race, I also emailed a number of people stating that Number 5 would win before the race. This proves Gann could predict horse racing and the Cuban Lottery, as he knew way more than I do, or anyone else for that matter. In the 1996 July issue, I predicted the wheat peak in 2008,12 years in advance. Wheat had never been that high in 700 years of data as it was in 2008 at $12.80 a bushel.

In the July 2011 issue I predicted that trouble would start in the markets around 2nd May 2012 and top. The Stock Market, Soybeans, Dollar, Cotton and many other markets collapsed from this high date, which was nine months in advance and not after the event. Astrologers today can’t do this, which is why they do Natal astrology. Gann didn’t do Natal astrology, as you don’t need to forecast a natal chart for the common person. Natal astrology in the old days was only done for Kings, Queens etc., and not the public. The common person doesn’t have a future; they are just the STRAW MAN. In fact most astrologers these days ask for donations when you go to their website, that’s funny, I just can’t stop laughing.

As you know Gann spent some time in India with Sepharial in the early 1900s. I’m sure he would have picked up his horse racing astrology and numerology there, as they have been doing this for thousands of years. At that time, only Hindus studied horse racing astrology/ numerology. Of course Gann was very secretive because there is no need to give or sell knowledge of the Holy Grail. Knowledge is power, so you never sell that. Gann wanted everyone to study and work hard. You can’t get any free lunches or steak knives from Gann or any of those ancient writers. You can start studying Gann by buying all his books on his reading list (on my website). That’s your starting point.

The book has a chapter on “Pakshi Sastra” as applied to racing. “Pakshi Sastra” seems to have been expounded by great Rishis such as Agastya and others. The day of 24 hours is divided into two equal parts of 12 hours each, irrespective of the day being short or long according to the season. The duration of the day of 12 hours is apportioned to five birds: Peacock (space), Hen (air), Crow (fire), Hawk (earth) and Owl (water). Each of these is 1/5th of 12 hours or 144 minutes. Gann wasn’t using 144 as you see on blogs or chat groups. These five birds also have 5 states, which divide the 144 into parts. However, these parts aren’t equal.

These parts are: –

F – Food time 48 minutes

D – Death time 30 minutes

S – Sleep time 12 minutes

A – Reigning time 18 minutes

W – Walking time 36 minutes  Total = 144 Minutes.

The writer of the book said this timing was taken from the Tamil manuscripts, which dated back to about 300 B.C. This is a day count I haven’t seen before in this book related to horse racing. They also have Numbers, Planets, Letters and Sounds related to the five elements even before any astrology is involved.

The Owl is water, Numbers 3 – 10, and planets Mercury and Moon, which rules Wednesday and Monday. The Hawk is earth, Numbers 5 – 2, and planets are Sun and Mars and rules Sunday and Tuesday. The Crow is Fire, Numbers 1 – 9, planets- Jupiter and rules Thursday. The Hen is Air, Numbers 6 – 4, planets are Venus and rules Friday. The Peacock is Space, Numbers 8 – 7, planets are Saturn and day is Saturday. As can be seen, this is completely different to any astrology book you would have and also dissimilar to what astrologers are teaching today. Did I mention housewife astrologers? Sorry I forgot!

The 27 Nakṣatras or Lunar Mansions are 13 degrees 20 minutes each. These Naksatras are also in Bird groups: –

Owl: Aswani, Bharani, Krithika, Rohini, Mrigasira. 0 to 66-40 Numbers 3,10

Hawk: Ardra, Punarvasu, Pushyami, Aslesha, Magha, Pubba. 66-40 to 146-40 Numbers 5,2

Crow: Uttara, Hasta, Chitta, Swati, Visakha, Anuradha. 146-40 to 226-40 Numbers 1,9

Hen: Jyeshta, Mula, Purvashadha, Uttarashadha, Sravanam. 226-40 to 293-20 Numbers 6,4

Peacock: Dhanishta, Satabhiham, P.Bhadra, U.Bhadra, Revati. 293-20 to 360 Numbers 8,7

In the book the author has also put all the winners numbers, Barrier numbers and its percentage when the moon is in the above 27 Naksatras.

The 2015 Melbourne cup has the moon at 12 degrees Cancer; based just on the Naksatras a favorite would win. If you examine the table below, you will come up with 1 and 9 as the period. Based on the book ‘X – Raying Winners’, 1,7,4 (Indian races 1930s) based on the percentage of the moon being in Punarvasu. Moon in Cancer is 2 and the Libra ingress chart on 17th October 2015 has moon in Cancer as well. These are only a couple of factors out of about 10 you need to do. Looks like there’s a problem with the race again this year, maybe some scandal with one of the favorites. I haven’t done any study into the race at the time of writing, as I am busy with other research.

Also, the book ‘Master Key of Races’, by T.G.Butaney should mention the above Nakasatras and whether it should be a favorite, fluke or a middleweight horse that will win.

There is another book called “Biorhythms of Natal Moon”: Mysteries of Panch Pakshi However, the book has nothing to do with horse racing. It will simply give you an idea of how complex the Hindu Tamil system is. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. That’s why today they have dumbed down astrology for the masses or the straw man in the debt trap (see straw man article, July/August Issue 2014). If I go to a shopping center, I don’t need to do a natal chart for a Mini-Hippo to work out their future

An update on my article in January 2015 is where a made out Gann astrologer made many wrong forecasts: –

  • They still haven’t found the plane MH 370, using the wrong eclipse cycle. Most people know it was a patient related inside job by one of the illuminates (the 13 riches families in the world). Same as 9/11 and the Titanic insurance job.
  • S&P 500 has now lost $76,000 per contract as it’s up to 2115. As I said in that article, a Gann uptrend is higher tops and higher bottoms, basic Gann.
  • Crude Oil has now lost $60,000 per contract, as it’s down to $45 a barrel. No website, newsletter or software is doing pure Gann, they add stuff that’s not related, so beware. Gann is way too hard for these people, which is why they add stuff and make stuff up. These are also people that call themselves Gann experts. They shouldn’t be using his name at all. What a joke! There is no Gann expert in the world and there never will be. Gann was his only expert.

This same person said I didn’t know what I was doing. While that may be true, they will never know what is going on in someone else’s head. However, I never make losses like those and be that wrong.

All teachers look good in front of their students because the student is dumber than the teacher. However, that doesn’t mean the teacher knows anything. This is how you get inflated testmonials with no contact details. I have never been to a workshop in my life, I never thought these Gann people knew anything, instead I taught myself. You can do the same, if you are interested.

We are to start at sunrise but for this easy exercise we will start at 6:00 am, so you will have to bring the numbers forward with an early sunrise or later with a late sunrise. You would know the sunrise is only longer on 14th April and 17th October each year at 6:00 am.

The Peacock rules Saturday so start with 5 periods of 144 minutes therefore we have: –

Peacock: FWASD, then we go 48,36,18,12 and 30 minutes. First 144 minutes.

Crow: WASDF, then we go 36,18,12,30 and 48 minutes. Second 144 minutes.

Hawk: ASDFW, then we go 18,12,30,48 and 36 minutes. Third 144 minutes.

Hen: SDFWA, then we go 12,30,48,36 and 18 minutes. Fourth 144 minutes

Owl: DFWAS, then we go 30,48,36,18 and 12 minutes. Firth 144 minutes

If it’s a Wednesday, you start with the Owl and rotate to the peacock etc. Therefore at 1:12 P.M on a Saturday you would be in the fourth 144 minute, so you would look at the Peacock and start with the letter “S”.

It would go as follows: –

P.M 1:12 to 1:24 P (S) No’s 8,7

1:24 to 1:54 C (D) No’s 1,9

1:54 to 2:42 H (F) No’s6, 4

2:42 to 3:18 H (W) No’s5, 2



3:18 to 3:36 O (A) No’s3, 10

The next 144 is still a Peacock (Saturday) but we rotate to the “D” in Crow. Therefore we go DFWAS. As per the Tamil Method, the last number is taken when there are two digits. If it’s 19, then you take 9 as the number.

The Hindu New Year starts with Sun opposite the fixed star Spica, which is at 29 degrees 58 minutes. This is on 14th April each year. Gann’s square of nine chart comes from India, an old tea calculator, so you have to use Hindu astrology and numerology, which unlike most teachings doesn’t start on 21st March. You would notice that the chart Gann had started east on the west, (21st March). There’s a Hindu reason for that, but I can’t tell you. They were both on the 21st March back around 297A.D, that’s when they were last correct. Also do the ingress chart before the winter and autumn carnivals as well as the new moon.

Those charts will give an idea of whether favorites or flukes will win races. The Hindu New Year for 2015 is 14th April and the Hindu Lunar Year is 20th March. This varies each year. So you are running two calendars. This year the New Moon is a Solar Eclipse, so in Melbourne it seems there will be strikes and problems with the working class or labour force.

Another book, which has nothing to do with horse racing, has broken the Nakṣatras in the nine different degrees for the nine planets (7 planets plus the two nodes). These seem to operate like the planetary hours but they aren’t fixed hours, they are different degree lengths for the different planets. I will cover these hours in a future article. In this book he talks about great Hindu astrologers that can forecast.

“The king Vikramadditya had a famous Astrologer named Varah Mihir in his court. His actual name was Mihir and “Varah” was the tile given to him by the king for his predictions. He predicted that the prince would have an early death, specifying the date, time and cause of death. He predicted that a wild boar would kill the prince. The king was surprised and made all arrangements so that no wild animal enters the palace. On the predicted date, the whole palace was on full alert and nothing was left to chance. The flag flying in the palace fell on the prince and the insignia of a boar attached to the flag hit the prince causing immediate death”.

This is what you call an astrologer. There is no western astrologer that can forecast like this today because all the old knowledge is not in books, it’s handed down or you have to work it out by yourself, like I’m doing. I started to find out what Gann was doing, when I went to an Astrology conference once. I haven’t since been back. I looked around and said to myself- ‘whatever those astrologers are doing, I need to do the opposite’, and I have done so ever since. Gann said “Do your own study, stay out of debt” otherwise you will stay a STRAWMAN http://www.yourstrawman.com/.
