    The Mental Map

But the man who knows the relation between the forces of Nature and actions, sees how some forces of nature work upon other forces of Nature, and...

    Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive

    All planets are found within a two-thirds segment of the zodiac well-defined by a functioning trine. It approaches the ideal when the planets are equispaced in the occupied section of the wheel. The functioning trine is necessary. The planet facing clockwise on the unoccupied segment is the...

    Using Planetary Patterns. The Bundle. Harrison Ford

    Testing House Systems

    If you are undecided, in doubt, as between Placidus and Whole Sign houses, the chart of Donald Trump provides a good test chart. Many of the planets change house from one system to the other, allowing you to see which system, if either, yields a truer reading.
