Hi greybeard,

Some ancient astrologers don't believe a planet has strength until it's at least 5 deg into a sign (or 4 deg if you're using 0-29). Apparently, they don't apply that to terms or decans, because a planet is in a term or not. That doesn't seem to be logical to me and I question whether the 5 deg rule is appropriate.
