How can I read these data? Look for example at the second row in the table above: it shoes you the average return for a synthetic US stock market index when the Sun is in the sign of Taurus (Approximately from April 21 to May 21 using the tropical zodiac) with a geocentric perspective: during the past 110 years when Geocentric Sun was in Taurus the average return for that period was -0.32% and the positive days were just 51.94% . The risk is calculated as the standard deviation of the daily returns adjusted for the square root of the time spent in the sign and it is a key factor to be considered: it measures how much you can earn in excess of the average return and how much you can loose in excess of the average return, in other words in this example on average investing when the Sun is in Taurus returned a negative -0.32% per period over the last 110 years but an investor could have lost as much as 4.8% or gained as much as 4.2% in some of these periods when the Sun was in Taurus. These statistical results seems to confirm the old Wall Street say "Sell in May and go away"
