I mostly use Porphyrius Magus as well as DELPHIC ORACLEFor what it's worth, I have noted that planets on the angles which have stars conjoined tend to colour the manifestations of the star involved.
With Jupiter, Mercury and the Moon there, Mars in aversion and cadent I would expect less pronounced Martial traits in Monk's life.
This sort of thing is definitely a good research project, one for the future as far as I personally am concerned.
I'm not too fond of Ecliptial degree conjunctions of stars though
unless the star is on the Ecliptic,
so even if I saw some use in Pluto, I doubt I would use it with stars as it is so far from the Ecliptic a lot of the time.
In Monk's case, Pluto is over 10 degrees north of the Ecliptic, the Moon around 4 south of it,
so even she I wouldn't consider as modifying Regulus too much.
Mercury and Jupiter though, for sure.
In fact, looking at that conjunction in Porpyhrius Magus, if it wasn't for both being under the beams,
it would have been a very powerful sign in a nativity.
THE FIXED STARS IN NATAL ASTROLOGY http://constellationsofwords.com/cat...atalrobson.htm
'.....The nearer a star may be to the ecliptic the greater is its power,
and in the northern hemisphere a star with north declination is more powerful than one with south
the reverse holding good in the southern hemisphere.
It has frequently been said that stars with great latitude cannot affect us
but it is very doubtful if this assumption is correct
and experience, particularly in the case of comets, seems to indicate
that bodies in all parts of the celestial sphere are capable of exerting an influence upon the earth and its inhabitants...'
'.....Nature of planet through which they operate: As already pointed out
the fixed stars give strength and energy to the planets and modify their effects
but at the same time the nature of the planet exercises a strong controlling influence upon the result.
The greatest effect is obtained when the star and planet are both of the same nature
and in such cases the influence of the planet is raised to a vehement pitch
though at the same time the malefic effect of the star is diminished.....'
'....Thus if the planet Mars fall upon a star of its own nature its power is increased
if upon a star of the nature of Jupiter or Venus it is reduced and modified
while if upon one of the nature of Saturn it is greatly changed.
In other words if a planet falls upon a star of similar nature to its own it acquires intensity
while if upon one of contrary nature it becomes quiescent or distorted
and may give a kind of sodden or dull effect to the character......'
