W.D. Gann used the Raphael Planetary Ephemeris as his personal Diary.  In these ephemerides he kept his notations on commodities and stocks and the expectation of their movements.  He also kept business and personal notes in these books.

Some Interesting entries show that he won many lotteries.  There are complete sets of books, charts and records he kept on the Havana Lottery.  On the left hand page of the ephemeris copied in this issue, you can see the notations such as “won 21, won on 71 and 07″.

In his ephemeris for the years 1940-1950 are some interesting notations such as his “war day” records.  On each page after World War II started he kept a record of war days.  In April of 1945 he had the notation “end of war coming”.

As everyone knows Germany surrendered in May and Japan in August, 1945.

Please note the May Soybean chart of Gann’s in this issue.  You will notice the signs for the planets Jupiter and Mars.  (I have circled them on the chart.) Jupiter’s sign looks like a fancy 4 and Mars’ sign is a circle withe an arrow on top.  You can see that there are lines extending from the signs and these lines cross on December 1, 1948.

Also reproduced in this issue are pages from Gann’s Ephemeris for December 1948.  On the right hand page you can see that Gann had the degrees for Jupiter and Mars circled on December 1, 1948.  In the upper right hand corner under Mutual Aspects it shows that on December 1st, Jupiter and Mars are conjunct.

May Soybeans made their final high at this point and then began a long down trend.

Gann knew what was going to happen to the market.  The records show him to be short soybeans through December 1948 and January 1949.

Gann did not advertise the fact that he used astrology.  During his time, just as it is today, the majority of people in the world had a hard time relation to this planetary science.  It goes back to a basic fear of the unknown..
