Traditional Astrology For discussions on Traditional Astrology only. (Note: Typically, traditional astrology is defined as using techniques developed prior to 1700 by astrologers from the Hellenistic, Persian, Hebrew, and Renaissance eras. In general, it relies on Ptolemaic aspects (sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction) though there may be some exceptions, and always excludes modern planets (Neptune, Uranus and Pluto,) as well as any asteroids. The focus is less on what would be considered modern psychological chart interpretation and more on prediction. Members who wish to explore a combination of traditional and modern ideas should feel free to start a new thread in an appropriate forum for further discussion.)

Re: MALEFIC is derived from LATIN: describes MARS Lesser MALEFIC/SATURN Greater MALEF

Malefics - also known as 'infortunes'
these are planets that naturally symbolise damage and loss.
Traditionally these are Saturn, the 'Greater Malefic'
and
Mars, the 'Lesser Malefic'.
Both are extreme in nature:
Saturn being cold and dry
and Mars exceeding in heat.
If the natural malefics are positively placed in the chart, well dignified, strong in position
and involved in good aspects, their influence may be beneficial rather than afflicting
