Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

It's hard to say, passiflora, because the pre-horoscopic origins of astrology appear to be in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. Certainly star lore (cultural astronomy) was very different in different...

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

Our friends Ptolemy and Valens would have been intimately familiar with weather and climate patterns in and around Alexandria, Egypt. Ditto for the ancient Egyptians who probably invented the...

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

From Petosiris:


As I mentioned in a previous post, there is some evidence that the origins of thematic house meanings are from Egyptian mythology about the passage of the deified sun, both...

Re: Early death? Both of my young children have their moon in their 12th

I do think there is something to medical astrology. Just the caution that planets, signs, and houses all have multiple interpretations, and the most dire ones may not be the correct ones.

Also,...

My "sneaky" tag-line unfortunately was misplaced. Given your post, I won't now correct it. What I meant was Ptolemy really declines to talk about...

Re: Early death? Both of my young children have their moon in their 12th

Petosiris, I am very familiar with the demographic issues of determining historical demographic trends, and almost mentioned infant mortality. I just thought it would be too much of a digression.

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

Are we reading the same Tetrabiblos? Ptolemy explicity talks about houses only with respect to one method, calculating length of life in III. 10. Then he doesn't even mention all of the houses by...

Re: Early death? Both of my young children have their moon in their 12th

Ethereal Rain, the Hellenistic astrologers had different formulae for predicting length-of-life, another way of saying whether someone would die young or of old age. The trouble is that these...

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

You might be right re: nativities. Ptolemy used planets to analyse questions of siblings, parents, marriage, and so on, for which others would be inclined to use houses.

However, houses are...

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

Or, let's talk about whether planets "behold" or "regard" the ascendant.

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

I find the argument to discredit Ptolemy "because he was not a practicing astrologer" to be similar to criticizing Donald Trump because he became president without ever having been a practicing...

Re: Cadent houses being weak vs planetary joys

HoldOrFold, you raise an interesting point (meaning I've wondered about it myself.)

One of my occasional pet projects is trying to learn the origin of the thematic meanings of houses in ancient...

Re: Made no sense till BMLilith--now it really doesn't!

I'm going to go with your Mars-Venus conjunct her sun. It's not exact, but still within orb. Venus-sun contacts are strong indicators of attraction.

Would you mind posting a midpoint composite...

Re: Early death? Both of my young children have their moon in their 12th

I subscribe to the modern astrologers' theory that "the stars impel, but they do not compel."

There are some good books out there on the field of medical astrology. If you look for them on...

Re: Early death? Both of my young children have their moon in their 12th

My daughter's sun is in the 12th house, and her dad at age 72 is still alive and kicking.

The sun in the 12th has the broader meaning of a father who is unavailable in some way. This could mean...

Re: Iím 16 and donít know what to do career-wise (Midheaven Persona Chart)

Welcome to the forum.

On twin flames? I think it's mostly a bunch of wishful thinking on the part of romantics. Real world relationships don't work this way. Or very seldom.
