Mars is at 23:25 Libra, Mercury is at 04:10 Libra. The Ascendant is Scoprio. The latitude is 42:40 N.

I am trying to check the time when Mars and Mercury will get together with primary directions.

I used the instructions here as a guide: http://www.skyscript.co.uk/easy_directions.pdf since I don't have the appropriate software.

I am not used to working with sin, tan, cos and converting decimals into degrees and vice versa all the time so I suspect I got the calculation wrong.

Any help as to the exact figure (or close to it) would be appreciated.

Thank you.

'Morinus' is free traditional astrology software, it costs nothing - any search engine finds it - Morinus displays a table with primary directions involving relevant planets for the chosen time :smile:
