Introduction to Hellenistic Astrology Part I - Zodiac
The zodiac completes a sidereal cycle in 23.93446 hours.
The image of the Water-Pourer is masculine, diurnal, solid, watery, human
servile, eloquent, semi-infertile, handsome, standing and of the east wind.
It indicates inquiries, affairs, crafts, water and property.
Depending on the placement of the houseruler
men born under the influence of Aquarius are burdened, envious, lying
occasionally generous because of the uncontrollable flow of the Water-Pourer
craftsmen, public, mystical, youthful, delicate, with beautiful figure and eyes
smooth hair, dizzy, beautiful manners, white, working with hard materials, troubled by athletic training
artisans, wealthy, malicious, haters of their own families, incorrigible
making living by waterside places, betrayers of reputation and truth
accusers, haters of mankind, godless and uncontrollable.
Domicile of Saturn, it controls the lower legs, the skeletal system,
the lymphatic system and the immune system.
It causes blindness on account of the water.
It is like-empowered with Libra, like-ascending with Pisces
and like-engirding with Capricorn, short in the Northern Hemisphere and tall in the Southern Hemisphere.
It is wintry, cold and moist for the north
and summery, hot and dry for the south.
Aquarius obeys Aries for the north and commands it for the south.
Aquarius controls Sauromatica, Oxiana, Sogdiana, Arabia, Azania and Middle Ethiopia.
The left hand and the head are rising up to the 7th degree, the body and the right hand up to the 13th
the pitcher up to the 20th, the water up to the 25th
and the falling water up to the 30th.
The first 7° belong to Mercury - mastery, lovers of wisdom
The next 6° belong to Venus - friendships with great women
The next 7° belong to Jupiter - notable, some are winners of games
The next 5° belong to Mars - lawsuits, injuries, some die violent deaths
The final 5° belong to Saturn - education, grief in youth
Shoulders, Left Arm and Cloak - Saturn and Mercury
Thighs - Mercury and moderately Saturn
Water - Saturn and moderately Jupiter
Such, then, are the observations of the effects of the stars
as made by our predecessors.

become less discernible and causative in the equatorial zones.
3. Therefore another celestial influence is causative for nativities,
rather than the terrestrial effect of weather.
Otherwise, there would be no domicile, no exaltation
and no depression for the equatorial lands.
4. The rationale of the sidereal zodiac is compatible with this hypothesis,
the rationale of the tropical zodiac is not.
for beginners unfamiliar with Sidereal Astrology
Vedic astrology is Sidereal

KENNETH BOWSER is a Western Sidereal Astrologer

MOON travels each SIGN once a month aka "...moonth..."
is not always in the same sign SIDEREALLY as Tropical
although all Astrologers
– are commenting on and making predictions
regarding THE IDENTICAL MOON in the skies
a computer generated Tropical Chart
ALWAYS differs by DEGREE occuppied by the Moon
from Sidereal DEGREE occupied by the Moon
and sometimes differs by sign as well
Sidereal location of Moon
may be confirmed BY VISUAL observation of local skies
Notice there is a minimum difference of 20°
up to a maximum of approximately 24°
between Tropical and SIDEREAL MEASUREMENT
ANY planet at 0° OF any Tropical SIGN
is SIDEREALLY between approximately 6° - 10°
to a maximum 24° of the PREVIOUS SIGN
