Re: Introduction to Hellenistic Astrology Part IV - Nativities

The Ascendant and Descendant do not show exact east and west direction, though the quadrant MC and IC do show exact south and north direction. The reason quadrant users employ both, is that the...

Re: Birth charts of people born in polar region.

The Ascendant is retrograde at times in such regions, and there is really no sense of rising, culminating (at the equal MC) and setting in any meaningful sense of these words (since some planets will...

Re: Is Astrology a Plutonian Tradition?

No, it is ruled by Mercury in heliacal setting, people who deal with it most seriously are of mediocre memory, not painstaking nor fond of labour, inclined to sorcery etc.

Re: Birth charts of people born in polar region.

Or in other words, why are people living in such regions treated as deviants living under the influence of equal house systems while those living below the arctic circles under quadrants?

Re: Birth charts of people born in polar region.

What is the natural and logical reason for using such house system at the poles (besides that it appears as such in astrological software)?



I meant the difference of culture and customs (of...

Re: Birth charts of people born in polar region.

Polar houses, like its counterparts the nonreversed tropical (Sun exalted after autumnal equinox) and non-equatorial zones, are some of the contrivances that modern astrologers have put forth, not...

Re: Reconstruction of Ptolemaic Terms

There exist dozens of tables from antiquity, but only this one is correct, since it agrees with ''Ptolemy and Reason''.

Re: Adherence, Sun's beams, 6th house

The 15 degree range is a very vulgar way of treating heliacal risings and settings, the problem of arcus visionis that was more or less solved by Ptolemy in the Almagest - cf. Neugebauer, O. (1975)....

Re: Why does Mars Joy in H6?

If the joys are dependent on twelve sign zodiac, how can they be Egyptian? Agathodaimon is a Greek deity, same with Tyche.

Re: Why does Mars Joy in H6?

Too many assumptions I am afraid. There is no reason to think that ''Nechepso and Petosiris'' espoused anything but an Aristotelean model of the universe (see From astral omens to astrology by David...

Re: Why does Mars Joy in H6?

Yes, and Chris Brennan shows how Mars' placement in the joys is tied to it being nocturnal ruler of water, and cooperating ruler of earth - https://www.hellenisticastrology.com/the-planetary-joys.pdf.

Re: Profections example: John McCain

Profection is just transliteration of the Latin word for progression, if I remember correctly.

So you are suggesting that we do not have just one type of profection, but many? Who would have...
