Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've been on, but I would just like to know what type of feedback you have toward this subject:
I couldn't decide whether to use equal, or placidus, and tropical, or sidereal, in order to find my dominant signs and planets. So what I did, was I took all the data regarding those subjects, compiled them, and averaged the powers of the same signs and the same planets. I think it is quite accurate for me. Would someone else maybe like to try it and tell me what they think? I know it's a lot of work, but do it if you are as desparate as me, in trying to find who you are. Here's what I found:

Elemental Power Levels (averaged):
Fire: 170.225 -2
Earth: 90.975 -4
Air: 136.425 -3
Water: 225.675 -1

Planetary Power Levels (averaged):
Sun: 87.55 -1
Moon: 63.1 -4
Mercury: 58.9 -5
Venus: 55.55 -6
Mars: 49.25 -8
Jupiter: 63.9 -3
Saturn: 48.3 -9
Uranus: 32.6 -10
Neptune: 50.75 -7
Pluto: 64.4 -2

Power of Signs (averaged):
Aries: 50.125 -6
Taurus: 13.65 -12
Gemini: 30.375 -10
Cancer: 38.15 -9
Leo: 60.15 -3
Virgo: 29.25 -11
Libra: 55.125 -4
Scorpio: 71.975 -2
Sagittarius: 44.9 -8
Capricorn: 48.1 -7
Aquarius: 50.925 -5
Pisces: 115.55 -1

Modal Qualities (averaged):
Cardinal: 191.475
Fixed: 196.725
Mutable: 220.15

How accurate do you think it is? All feedback is welcome.

What is it that all these numbers tell you about yourself?

Choice of systems...Vedic or Western, tropical or sidereal, etc., is a matter of choice. Either alternative works.

It is like greybeard says a matter of choice ultimately, many arguments have been leveled for and against each system, personally I use the Western Zodiac with the Placidus or Topocentric house system, but when reading a Vedic chart, I will only use Vedic analysis techniques. The same goes for reading an Equal signs chart, I only use the Modern techniques. I think there is a definite set of techniques to go with each kind of chart which will give different results.
