If you are not familiar with Transpluto, you should be.
says gambler the late Joyce Wehrman.
Over the years I have found that it is imperative to use the natal and transiting position of Transpluto. I refer you to John Hawkins’ book Transpluto Or Should We Call Him BACCHUS the Ruler of Taurus (currently runs about 15.00 dollars). I was urged to use Transpluto, but I was reluctant to admit that something that I was not using could be important, so I did not follow that lead. Finally, four years later, I decided that my method was wrong and adopted Transpluto.
Now after years of working with it, I am urging you to use Transpluto!! I have found that the aspects and position of Transpluto often have to do with major wins and winning times. Keeping this in mind though: make your gambling astrological system as simple as possible- I personally only add to a basic astrological chart that which adds information that cannot be found in any other manner.
Thus after researching the use of Transpluto for two years, in every imaginable chart I have come to the conclusion that it is the key. Transits of the natal Transpluto are very revealing. Daily transits between it and other planets are mandatory for understanding events that transpire in the world scene.
The Part of the Fortune is good and so are the Nodes for finding aspects. Trines are fun but no money. Jupiter does not work. So that leaves us with Conjunctions, squares and oppositions — what are normally called the hard aspects . To win you must activate the winning houses in your horoscope which are of course House 2, 5 and 8 but rarely 11 (Hopes and Dreams) because that is a good time house. Look for that if you are throwing a party not if you are gambling.
from “What are winning transits” by the late Joyce Wehrman. Buy it here for $5.00 She wrote a follow up book that I recently got a hold of, that gives you some of her further hints. For the record, so far the trine aspect being a good time does work, so that may be a great day to schedule a wedding or a party, but not for the track.
Wehrman always used the KOCH Method of House Division.
Other things to keep in mind is that you must have a transiting planet activating your gambling natal planet that is any planet ruling the 5th house of speculation, the 9th house of gambling and luck, the 2nd and 8th houses of money, the 11th house of dreams, or the 10th house as second house of money for the ninth cusp.
Your midheaven and ascendant are always used because they represent you.
A planet is activated when it makes either a conjunction, opposition,or square to a transitting planet. While Ms. Wehrman used minor aspects at times she preferred major aspects and planets. She did not recommend gambling when a midpoint involving Mars, Saturn, or Neptune are being activated.
Matrix Software, formerly owned by Michael Erlewine, now owned by David & Fei Cochrane, developed software to implement her system. It is available for about $135.00 USD, and link to the software manual is here. I have never tried it, as I prefer to work out but I understand not everyone will or can.
