Re: Conversion of astro-data to Major Arcana Symbols: Method 1
Tarot in Horary
I have given examples (in the Horary Forum) of how we can obtain a Tarot symbol for any horary question.
Basically, this is the way to proceed:
-find the place of the querent's significator planet (this would be the planet that rules the ascending sign in the horary figure)
-convert that planet's position into the degrees of the zodiac (like we do in calculating Arabic Parts, and as described in this thread)
-then find the place of the quesited's significator planet (this would be the planet that rules the sign found in the house connected to the nature of the question asked)
-convert that planet's position into the degrees of the zodiac
-if there are 2 houses that have to do with the question asked (the primary and secondary quesited), then do the same with the planet ruling the sign in this second quesited house
-if the Moon is NOT one of the above significator planets, then ALSO find the Moon's position and convert it into the degrees of the zodiac.
Now, add up all the above figures (Note: if the total is more than 360, then subtract the circle of the zodiac-360-from that number, the remaining number being your figure)
For example: your final sum for all additions is 297 (degrees): this would be the number you will use for your final calculation of the Tarot symbol.
-But suppose your final sum is 649 (degrees); this is greater than 360, so you would have to subtract 360 from it; this would give you 289, which would be the number you will use in your final calculation of the Tarot symbol.
Now, with your final number, add together each seperate number in the figure:
For example: your final figure is 297: so 2 + 9 + 7 = 16: this means the Tarot symbol is the 16th Major Arcana symbol
Another example: your final figure is 289: so 2 + 8 + 9 = 19; the Tarot symbol is the 19th Major Arcana
Suppose your final number includes minutes as well as degrees: say the final number is 305 (degr) 54 (minutes); simply follow the same procedure as above and add all of the numbers together: in this example 3 + 0 + 5 + 5 + 4 = 17; the Tarot symbol for this horary question would be the 17th Major Arcana.
Suppose your final number, when added together, goes beyond 22 (the limit of Major Arcana symbols) You would simply apply the process described in my original posting in this thread, to find the relevant symbol: for example, your final number is 358 (degr) 59 (minutes): that would be 3 + 5 + 8 + 5 + 9 = 30; using the method described in my original post in this thread, 30 = 3, so the 3rd Major Arcana symbol would resonate with the horary question.
