Re: Rectification Tips - Verifying Ascendant/Descendant/MC/IC angles

In my opinion, rectification is invariably a "SWAG" ("Scientific Wild-*** Guess," a phrase I first saw used by nuclear engineers to describe their design methodology). That said, I used what was...

Re: Astrology Software

I've been doing some research for a program with traditional (as in classical, Hellenistic, Renaissance, etc.) features that will work well for horary interpretation ala John Frawley and William...

Re: Your Favorite Astrology Sites

I've linked 20 of my favorites on my divination blog site. Rather than typing them all here, I thought I would just post the link to my blog. My choices are heavily weighted toward traditional and...

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

I worked with Planets in Composite back in the early '80s and went from there into the work of John Addey, doing a whole range of harmonic charts, but I eventually went back to synastry....

Re: Favorite placement in your natal chart?

For me it's Mars in the 10th House in Virgo, conjunct the MC. I used to think Virgo was a fairly weak placement for Mars, especially since it's peregrine. But eventually I realized that almost every...

Re: How Couples Met

I've never noticed much in the way of "how," but the "why" is often visible. In my own case, my wife and I aren't obviously compatible from a synastry standpoint: I'm a predominantly Water and Earth...

Re: Solar Return Case Study

I got a "Not Found, Error 404" when trying to use this link. These are the formats produced by the specific programs I used, which I then scanned as "jpeg" files. Should I scan them in another file...

Solar Return Case Study

I've been working on solar return charts for this year and decided to try them two ways: the usual Tropical non-precessed chart and a Sidereal chart. I'm using James Eshelman's method of analysis, ...

Re: Which house would fishing belong to?

As a fisherman myself, I found this question very interesting. In general terms, a 30-pound fish would be a worthy adversary (although I never knew carp to put up much of a fight - more like reeling...

Re: Business Question

The querent had his meeting with the customer. He said it was "productive, and possibly profitable." He tactfully brought up the subject of the Denver meeting to see if she would reveal anything of...

Re: Business Question

I understand. I was mixing my methods here. The spiritual and karmic correspondences for the nodes came from the "humanistic" astrologers of the 1970s and 1980s, who were practicing psychological...

Re: Business Question

Thanks for the input! I'm still grappling a bit with this. Other traditional astrologers I'm talking to about this chart don't see the conjunction to the MSN as an indicator of "calamity," and...

Re: Business Question

Mr. B was suspicious but didn't actually know anything definite at the time he asked the question. He met with Ms. P yesterday for a normal sales visit, and I'm waiting to hear how that went.

Re: Business Question

I just wrote a five-paragraph reply and lost the whole thing when I clicked on "Submit Reply." It's going to take me a bit to recover from the trauma. Please bear with me.

Background: Mr B...

Simplicity Uber Alle

Well, here's a kick: the pursuit of a solution to one mystery begets the solution to an earlier one. While searching the attic for my wife's missing necklace, I found an address book of hers that...

Re: Antiscia

I've been considering how to approach the duodekatemoria. I can't help but think that the 12th part of anything begins to feel a bit like sifting "bug-dust." But perhaps it's like tying a surgeon's...

Re: Besieged Moon Considerations

Here it is. Just a little background: I'm taking the radical 8th (turned 2nd) as my wife's movable property (her necklace), Venus as the significator of jewelry and the Moon as the co-significator...

Re: Antiscia

I'm testing it in an example chart right now. My wife misplaced a valuable necklace. Taking the radical 7th House as my wife, her movable property is represented by the radical 8th (turned 2nd...

Re: Besieged Moon Considerations

Thanks for the response, you understand the situation correctly. That's exactly what I was looking for. Watters didn't clarify that the previous conjunction to a malefic had to be the last aspect...

Besieged Moon Considerations

In her horary book, Barbara Watters mentions that, when the Moon is besieged between two malefics (that is, it has just conjuncted one and is moving to conjunction with the other without making any...

Re: T-Square Interpretation
