Introduction to Hellenistic Astrology Part I - Zodiac
The zodiac completes a sidereal cycle in 23.93446 hours.
The image of the Maiden is feminine, nocturnal, double-bodied, human, winged,
common, eloquent, infertile, incomplete, handsome, standing and of the south wind.
It indicates exchanges, affairs, eloquence, trade and mysticism.
Depending on the placement of the houseruler, men born under the influence of Virgo
are large, well-proportioned and graceful, articulate, meticulous, popular, mystical, temperate,
with fine face, fine straight body, round beautiful bright eyes, drawn nostrils, fine lips
because the Maiden is charming in conversation, exchanging, thick chin, bright hair, useful, industrious,
pure, modest, well-educated, lovers of learning, always ready to do everything when provoked,
writers, physicians, business expediters, administrators of goods, stewards, secretaries, accountants, workers in fields,
actors, astrologers, spendthrifts in youth,
but who become prosperous over the course of time.
Domicile and exaltation of Mercury, depression of Venus, it controls the abdomen,
the vestibular system, the gustatory system and the auditory system.
It is equinoctial, like-empowered with Pisces, like-ascending with Leo
and like-engirding with Gemini, tall in the Northern Hemisphere and short in the Southern Hemisphere.
It is autumnal, cold and dry for the north, and vernal, hot and moist for the south.
Virgo controls Babylonia, Mesopotamia, Assyria, Hellas, Achaia and Crete.
The head and the shoulders are rising up to the 7th degree,
the hands, the abdomen and the wings up to the 17th,
the lower parts up to the 21st, the robe up to the 28th,
the feet and Spica up to the 30th.
The first 7° belong to Mercury - teachers, philosophers, mathematicians
The next 10° belong to Venus - cheerful, freedom from oppression and care
The next 4° belong to Jupiter - notable and with friendships
The next 7° belong to Mars - brilliant, some belong to the military or tribunals
The final 2° belong to Saturn - ups and downs, notable, risks
Head and Zavijava - Mercury and moderately Mars
Southern Wing and Girdles - Mercury and moderately Venus
Vindemiatrix - Saturn and Mercury
Feet - Mercury and moderately Mars
Spica - Venus and moderately Mars
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.
Siriusly, you should move 25 degrees backwards, not days.
Another handy method is
that if a planet is less than 25 degrees in the sign,
add 5 degrees to it,
while moving it in the previous sign.
This way you can find any positions in less than couple seconds.
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
dependent on the ayanamsha
