    Traditional vs Classical vs renaissance vs Hellenistic

    Manilius also made a big impression on me-I’ll bet that I am the only person who still actively uses the old Manilius Decans on a continuing basis in delineation! Manilius was Roman but he and his father represented the Antioch school of astrology rather than the more influential Alexandrian...

    Venus debilitated in Virgo???

    Remember we are talking only about essential states here-that essential state CAN BE modified by other conditions affecting the planet, the so-called accidentals-these include modifications by connections (aspects etc) and by shadow placements (dodekatemoiria), which again can bring in new...

    This is too much, can you please help?

    in composite Venus is cazimi-in the heart of the sun; while fortunate, this can mean a too intense venus quality, which could be problematical in the relationship; then there is the fall of cazimi Venus in Virgo, plus the question posed by Pluto in Scorpio-seems to me there is both intensity &...

    Traditional vs Classical vs renaissance vs Hellenistic

    Of the mentioned ancient authors, Valens and Paulus Alexandrianus influenced me the most; never cared much for Rhetorius the Egyptian-I feel his work shows the Beginning of the modification of Hellenistic astrology toward the Arabic transitional era leading to medieval astrology, which I...

    New to astrology

    Welcome to our forums-hope you will find them useful-Pluto/Saturn/moon conjoined in 1st is quite a placement, offering much potential and some problems as well-transforming Pluto + stabilizing Saturn + shifting Moon, wow!

    Need some education: Which charts to use when?

    Natal, transit, progressed, composite, event & horary charts should pretty much cover whatever one needs to know. (and possibly solar return charts also, but I prefer progressed)

    Querant significator Moon flows away from career significator mars and “regular job” significator jupiter; by Ankara method indications would be no.

    How to read chart with same signifier & three-way conjunction?

    For me, the placement of significator mercury in domicile and angular, plus moon there, yields a probably yes answer to this question. Moon applying to significator mercury also helps. But remember that I am applying the unorthodox horary Ankara method in making my analysis-conventional horary...

    If the significators are forming no aspect...

    In the unorthodox Ankara horary method I follow aspects re to significators are not absolutely necessary although of course they do count in the totality of specific indications in determining the answer; the key in Ankara is the direction of flow of significators toward or away from each other...

    Sun flows away from saturn = no; moon flows to sun -yes;moon flows away from asc, Jupiter, Venus (components of part of marriage) = no; 2-/1+ = net -1; answer; more likely no in the near future than yes; could easily change to a yes answer over the intermediate term. Some conflict in you (saturn...

    Why do I love rollercoasters?

    probably the elevated mercury/Neptune conjunction + the elevated mars, all in daredevil Sagittarius-liking for the excitement of unusual, rapidly alternating sensations in a place of fun/friendliness (11th ws house)

    Why do my wife and I not get along?

    She has a most elevated Neptune + Venus under Leo in 7th house-perhaps she had an idealistic idea of marriage and expected much more from the relationship than what has developed.

    Traditional vs Classical vs renaissance vs Hellenistic

    this is one point-keeping them seperate-that I disagree with Mr Schmidt-but you have to know what exactly you are trying to do! of course, though, I am a mongrel (eclectic) so it figures that I would disagree with him on this point! Mixing the various techniques works very well for me;and the...

    Saturn is the great challenger to comfort zones-I think that is a major reason it is so dreaded in astrology.
