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

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: Is Anyone Else Tired of Waiting For the Age of Aquarius to Take Effect?

I understand that, sidereally, the Age of Aquarius will begin around 2150. So I've been calling the present "New Age" phenomenon the "Piscean Pipe Dream" and the "False Spring." Much of what I see in...

Re: Astrology Book Recommendations

Re: Tarot and Astrology

Re: Tarot and Astrology

I have many of Crowley's hard-bound books and I recall that Weiser once put out a rather slim volume on his astrological ideas (apparently included here) that I didn't have and wanted, so in that...

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: Conversion of astro-data to Major Arcana Symbols: Method 1

Re: Conversion of astro-data to Major Arcana Symbols: Method 1

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: 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...
