You may be familiar with the Astodienst Hypothetical Planets List
, which can be found on the bottom of the page of the Free Chart Selection page and looks something like this:
Please look up the number of the "hypothetical" planet you want
The numbers can be entered in the Free Chart Selection page.
Please note, it is known with certainty that these planets do NOT exist.
It is possible to enter several numbers, separated by commas, e.g. "h40,h41,h42,h43,h44,h45,h46,h47" for all "Uranian planets" (Hamburg School). They can also be combined with asteroids,e.g. "5731,h42,4341,h47". The total number of additional bodies in a chart is limited to 10. If you add more, some entries will be ignored.

I may have glanced at this page several times out of curiosity, yet until several minutes ago, I had not given these so-called hypothetical planets a second thought.
While researching information for the thread Esoteric Rulership and Rulers of the Zodiac Hierarchy
in the Natal Astrology Board
, I stumbled upon an Esoteric Astrology
site. I soon learned that Vulcan and Pluto are the esoteric rulers of the First Ray
, which is associated with the triad of Aries (Initiative), Leo (Will-purpose), and Capricorn (Mystery of life); I read through the description of this ray and associate with it quite well.
I continued my exploration of this site and eventually came to Vulcan through the Signs in Esoteric Astrology
. I decided to revisit that forgotten page described above to determine the placement of this hypothetical planet in my natal chart and discovered that Vulcan is located at 15 Aries 45'29"--less than ten arcminutes away from my natal Sun and three arcminutes away from my natal Venus
What should I make of this revelation? I hardly think it to be a coincidence...
