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.)

Sun, together with the ambient, is always in some way affecting everything on the earth, not only by the changes that accompany the seasons to bring about generation of animals, productiveness of plants, flowing of rivers, and change of bodies, but also daily furnishing heat, moisture, cold and dryness in regular order and in correspondence with its current position relative to the zenith

Moon, too, as the heavenly body nearest to the earth, bestows its effluence most abundantly upon mundane things, for most of them, animate and inanimate, are sympathetic with it, and change in company with it, the rivers increase and diminish their streams with its light, seas turn their own tides with its rising and setting, and plants and animals in some part increase or decrease with it

Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury often cause hot, windy and snowy conditions of the air and mundane matters are affected accordingly, all configurations bring about many complicated changes, for though the power of the Sun prevails in the general ordering of the quality, the other heavenly bodies cooperate or deter in particular details, if these matters be so regarded, all would judge it to follow that not only must things already compounded be affected in some way by the motion of the heavenly bodies, but likewise the germination and the fruition of the seed must be moulded and conformed to the biological forces that are proper to the physical forces at the time, and such biological determinism dependent upon physical reductionism is easily comprehended

The following considerations might lead one to observe that criticism of the science on the score of impossibility is specious, but undeserved, in the first place, the mistakes of those who are not accurately instructed in its practice, and they are many, as one would expect in this important and many-sided subject, they have brought about the belief that even its true predictions depend upon chance, which is incorrect, for this is ineffectiveness not of the science, but of those who practice it, in the second place, most for the sake of gain, claim credence for another art with the name of this, and they deceive the vulgar, because they are reputed to foretell many things even those that cannot naturally be known beforehand, while to the more thoughtful they have thereby given the occasion to pass equally unfavourable judgement upon the natural science, nor is this deservedly done, it is the same with other sciences, there is no need to abolish them because there are some evident rascals among those that pretend to them, nevertheless, the most inquiring and legitimate astrologers may sometimes err, not for any of the reasons stated, but because of their weakness in comparison to the magnitude of the profession, however, just as people do not find fault with the physicians when they examine someone, for speaking both about the sickness itself and about the patient, so too they should not object to the astrologers using foundation for investigation, nation, region or any other already existing accidental qualities, particularly those concerning the origins

Unexpected good often grieves men as bad, and unexpected bad causes the greatest grief to those who have not trained their minds in advance, that foreknowledge is possible and that precautions can be taken in most instances is obvious from the fact that people warm themselves against cold in winter, and cool themselves against heat in summer, similar measures can prove effective with disproportionate amounts of moisture, heat, dryness and cold in the different matters of nativities

Apotelesmatika
The ''Effects'' of astronomy.

Quote:
1. Powers
Sun is heating and moderately drying
Moon is moistening and moderately cooling
Saturn is cooling and moderately drying
Jupiter is heating and moderately moistening
Mars is drying and burning
Venus is moistening and moderately heating
Mercury is alternating between drying and moistening
Sun is heating and moderately drying, this is made more easily perceptible with its size and the obviousness of its seasonal changes, for the closer it approaches the zenith, the more it affects us in this way.

Moon is moistening and moderately cooling, this is made more easily perceptible with its phases, for it has most obvious influence over the seas at the syzygies, however, because it reflects heat from the Sun, it is more moistening than cold.

Saturn is cooling and moderately drying, because it is furthest removed from the heat of the Sun and the moisture of the Earth.

Jupiter is heating and moderately moistening, with temperate active force because its orbit takes place between the cooling influence of Saturn and the burning influence of Mars.

Mars is drying and burning, in conformity with its position and rays, it has extreme heat not in quantity (the Sun produces more heat in quantity), but in quality especially due to its great dryness.

Venus is moistening and moderately heating, similar in nature to the Earth, but more heating, because it is closer to the heating influence of the Sun.

Mercury is alternating between drying and moistening, because it is in between the drying influence of the Sun and the moistening influence of Venus, it is rarely perceptibly hot or cold, because of its varied light relative to its size and distance from the Earth.

Quote:
2. Qualities
Jupiter and Venus are beneficent
Saturn and Mars are maleficent
Sun, Moon and Mercury are common
Moisture and heat are beneficent, fertile and active, dryness and cold are maleficent, destructive and passive.

The extreme heat of Mars is similar in maleficent quality to moderate amounts of cold and dryness. Common planets join their influences with the other planets, with whichever of them they are associated, although the Sun and the Moon have slight essential predisposition towards beneficence.

Quote:
3. Natures
Sun, Saturn, Jupiter and Mars are masculine
Moon and Venus are feminine
Mercury is common
Heat, dryness and cold are masculine, moisture is feminine.

Quote:
Morning planets are masculine
Evening planets are feminine
Eastern planets relative to the Sun are masculine because they have the first place in the cycle and they welcome the day, western planets relative to the Sun are feminine because they have the second place in the cycle and welcome the night. An additional reason is the increase and decrease of light in the two semicircles.

Quote:
Eastern planets are masculine
Western planets are feminine
The quadrants from the Hour-Marker to the Midheaven and from the Setting to the Anti-Midheaven are masculine, because they are eastern relative to the horizon and occupy the first halves of day and night. The quadrants from the Midheaven to the Setting and from the Anti-Midheaven to the Hour-Marker are feminine, because they are western relative to the horizon and occupy the second halves of day and night.

Quote:
4. Sects
Sun, Saturn and Jupiter are diurnal
Moon, Mars and Venus are nocturnal
Mercury is diurnal as morning planet and nocturnal as evening planet
Masculine planets are diurnal, feminine planets are nocturnal. Mars, however, because it is drying and excessively heating, is constituted nocturnal, and it produces much more temperate admixture with the Moon and Venus than with the Sun, Saturn and Jupiter.

Quote:
5. Phases
Moon is more moistening and moderately heating in first quarter
Moon is more heating and moderately drying in second quarter
Moon is more drying and moderately cooling in third quarter
Moon is more cooling and moderately moistening in fourth quarter

Morning additive planets are more moistening and moderately heating
Morning subtractive planets are more heating and moderately drying
Evening subtractive planets are more drying and moderately cooling
Evening additive planets are more cooling and moderately moistening
The heating and moderately drying powers of the second phases are obvious, in that they are most abundant and increasing in light, from this we can understand that the opposite phases are cooling and moderately moistening. Likewise, the additive planets are perceptibly stronger, so they must receive the airy powers, and the opposite phases, the earthy powers.

Moon, Saturn, Jupiter and Mars have air -> fire -> earth -> water cycle (similar to the seasons).
Venus and Mercury have air -> water -> earth -> fire cycle (similar to the angles).

Quote:
6. Rays
Black rays are cooling and moderately drying
White rays are heating and moderately moistening
Red rays are drying and burning
Yellow rays are moistening and moderately heating
Varied rays are alternating between drying and moistening
If a fixed star such as Aldebaran continuously emits red rays, it has the power, quality, nature and sect of Mars - drying and burning, maleficent, masculine and nocturnal.

If a fixed star such as Sirius continuously emits white rays with slight shades of red, it has the power, quality, nature and sect of Jupiter and moderately Mars - heat, but without moisture, beneficent, masculine and diurnal.

If fixed stars such as those in the mouth of Capricorn continuously emit faint rays with slight shade of yellow, they have the power, quality, nature and sect of Saturn and moderately Venus - cold and moderate moisture, common, masculine and diurnal.

If a solar eclipse is surrounded by red halos or the Sun emits red rays at the time, it is a sign of events predominated by Mars - hot weather, drought, loss of crops, wars etc.

Quote:
7. Places
Aries, Taurus and Gemini are moistening and moderately heating
Cancer, Leo and Virgo are heating and moderately drying
Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius are drying and moderately cooling
Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces are cooling and moderately moistening
The four seasons and their powers require no explanation.

Quote:
8. Qualities
Aries and Libra are equinoctial
Cancer and Capricorn are solstitial
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are solid
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are dual
These qualities are named after what happens to the seasonal powers in these places. They change at the equinoxes and solstices, become solid in the solid places, and prepare for change in the dual places.

Quote:
9. Natures
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius are masculine
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces are feminine
The equinoctial places and the trigonal places are masculine.
The solstitial places and the trigonal places are feminine.

Quote:
10. Sects
Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius are diurnal
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces are nocturnal
The masculine places are diurnal.
The feminine places are nocturnal.

Quote:
11. Ages
First age is moistening and moderately heating
Second age is heating and moderately drying
Third age is drying and moderately cooling
Fourth age is cooling and moderately moistening
The circle has no beginning, but since all living creatures have four ages with these powers corresponding to the seasons, it is so-held to begin with Aries. Planets experience increase or decrease of their powers in the different ages, as when events in adolescence are generally predominated by Venus, but those of early adulthood, by the Sun.

Quote:
12. Angles
Hour-Marker is drying and moderately cooling
Midheaven is heating and moderately drying
Setting is moistening and moderately heating
Anti-Midheaven is cooling and moderately moistening
The four directions, their winds and powers require no explanation.

Quote:
13. Configurations
Assemblies are common
Hexagons and trigons are harmonious
Tetragons and diameters are disharmonious
Assemblies and diameters make planets meet on one straight line and form powerful syzygies. The 1/3, 1/2 and 2/3 of the diameter are important configurations. Of these, the tetragon and the diameter are disharmonious, because their contrary qualities are responsible for the turning of seasons and lunar phases. The hexagon and the trigon are harmonious, because their winds are of the same nature and sect, which also tempers the assembly to common nature and the diameter to the nature of the tetragon. The hexagon is tempered to the nature of the trigon, because even though it doesn't have the same direction, it has the same nature and sect and takes less seasonal space (lesser difference). The 1/6 and 5/6 of the diameter are not configurations, because they are neither turning, nor do they belong to winds of the same nature and sect, so that even if they had relationship, this would be general and imperceptible.

Quote:
Configurations within 1 are complete
Configurations within 3 are powerful
Configurations within 7 are operative
Configurations within 15 are moderate
15 is the boundary before the beginning of the next configuration or the lack thereof, an additional reason is that it is the half of a place. Each interval is doubled in distance from the previous as 1 + 2 = 3 + 4 = 7 + 8 = 15, an additional reason is that these approximate one day, three days, one week and two weeks of the lunar months.

There are very few natural reasons for the usage of configurations by signs, ascensions and the so-called planetary orbs. Such we shall omit, likewise the usage of applications and separations is superfluous as we prefer current placements configurations at a given moment, and not motions in the future, otherwise the powers of the angles would be superfluous.

Quote:
14. Stars
Non-wandering stars present within 1 cooperate with their powers, qualities, natures and sects
Non-wandering stars cooperate only in complete assemblies with angles, planets and the Lot, and they have neither phases nor other configurations, by reason of their constant position relative to each other.

15. Houses
Leo is summery house of Sun
Cancer is northern house of Moon
Capricorn and Aquarius are wintry houses of Saturn
Sagittarius and Pisces are windy houses of Jupiter
Aries and Scorpio are stormy houses of Mars
Taurus and Libra are temperate houses of Venus
Gemini and Virgo are changeable houses of Mercury
Leo is heating and moderately drying just like the Sun.
Cancer, by reason of being the most northern place receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are cold and moist, so it is constituted the house of the Moon.
Capricorn and Aquarius are wintry houses of Saturn. Capricorn contrariwise receives an admixture of extreme southern winds, which we shall explain in a moment.
Sagittarius and Pisces are windy houses of Jupiter that anticipate seasons with greater moisture (winter and spring) and heat (spring).
Aries and Scorpio are productive of storms, Aries produces great heat, while Scorpio produces the most dryness, so they are related to Mars.
Taurus and Libra are temperate (in weather and temperature) so they are related to Venus.
Gemini and Virgo are changeable houses of Mercury that anticipate seasons with greater dryness (summer and autumn) from seasons with good weather.

Quote:
16. Elevations
Aries is heating elevation of Sun
Taurus is vernal elevation of Moon
Libra is cooling elevation of Saturn
Cancer is northern elevation of Jupiter
Capricorn is southern elevation of Mars
Pisces is moistening elevation of Venus
Virgo is drying elevation of Mercury
Aries is heating elevation, not in quantity (which is the place of Leo), but in quality, as this is the place of the vernal equinox which causes the greatest increase of heat.
Taurus is the most moistening of all places so it is predominated by both moistening planets.
Libra is cooling elevation, not in quantity (which is the place of Aquarius), but in quality, as this is the place of the autumnal equinox which causes the greatest increase of cold.
Cancer is northern elevation of Jupiter, because this place is summery and at the same time receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are moist and fecund.
Capricorn is southern elevation of Mars, because this place receives an admixture of extreme southern winds which are burning, drying and destructive, by reason of being the most southern place.
Pisces is moistening elevation of Venus, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the moistening spring.
Virgo is drying elevation of Mercury, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the drying autumn. Virgo is related twice to Mercury.

Quote:
17. Depressions
Libra is cooling depression of Sun
Scorpio is autumnal depression of Moon
Aries is heating depression of Saturn
Capricorn is southern depression of Jupiter
Cancer is northern depression of Mars
Virgo is drying depression of Venus
Pisces is moistening depression of Mercury
Libra is cooling depression, not in quantity (which is the place of Aquarius), but in quality, as this is the place of the autumnal equinox which causes the greatest increase of cold.
Scorpio is the most drying of all places and it is predominated twice by Mars.
Aries is heating depression, not in quantity (which is the place of Leo), but in quality, as this is the place of the vernal equinox which causes the greatest increase of heat.
Capricorn is southern depression of Jupiter, because this place is wintry and at the same time receives an admixture of extreme southern winds which are burning, drying and destructive.
Cancer is northern depression of Mars, because this place receives an admixture of extreme northern winds which are moist and fecund.
Virgo is drying depression of Venus, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the drying autumn.
Pisces is moistening depression of Mercury, again, not in quantity, but in quality, this place precedes the moistening spring.

Quote:
18. Trigons
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are southern wind trigon of Sun by day and Jupiter by night
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are western wind trigon of Venus by day and Moon by night
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are northern wind trigon of Saturn by day and Mercury by night
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are eastern wind trigon of Mars
Because winds always predominate an exact direction, and because there are four possible general directions of winds, the twelve places are sharply pointed in groups of three separated by four places, that is by the figure of the trigon.

Aries + Leo + Sagittarius = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold = 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness (South or Fire)
Taurus + Virgo + Capricorn = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat (West or Air)
Gemini + Libra + Aquarius = 1 Moisture + 1/2 Heat + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture (North or Water)
Cancer + Scorpio + Pisces = 1 Heat + 1/2 Dryness + 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold + 1 Cold + 1/2 Moisture = 1 Dryness + 1/2 Cold (East or Earth)

Thus, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are southern wind trigon of Sun by day and Jupiter by night, more moistening by night due to the moisture of the night.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are western wind trigon of Venus by day and Moon by night, more cooling by night due to the cold of the night.
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are northern wind trigon of Saturn by day and Mercury by night, more moistening by night due to the moisture of the night, this wind is predominated by Mercury by night to account for the moderate moisture, occasional fecundity and beneficence, note that half of the time by night, this wind becomes feminine and nocturnal.
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are eastern wind trigon of Mars both by day and by night, as only Mars produces such drying and maleficent winds. To account for the moderate cold of the winds, some of the old astrologers put Venus as cooperating lord by day, and Moon as cooperating lord by night, however this does not seem right to me, as they are moistening planets.
The winds seem point at the seasonal powers of the solid places.

Of course, for the Southern Hemisphere, the equatorial winds of Sun and Jupiter become northern, and the polar winds of Saturn and Mercury become southern, as the direction of their two angles are reversed, likewise this differentiation of winds applies only to the general winds within the fronts, and not to every single locality at all times.

Quote:
19. Bounds
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius by day give Sun 7.5, Venus 7.5, Saturn 7.5 and Mars 7.5
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn by day give Venus 7.5, Saturn 7.5, Mars 7.5 and Sun 7.5
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius by day give Saturn 7.5, Mars 7.5, Sun 7.5 and Venus 7.5
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces by day give Mars 7.5, Sun 7.5, Venus 7.5 and Saturn 7.5

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius by night give Jupiter 7.5, Moon 7.5, Mercury 7.5 and Mars 7.5
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn by night give Moon 7.5, Mercury 7.5, Mars 7.5 and Jupiter 7.5
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius by night give Mercury 7.5, Mars 7.5, Jupiter 7.5 and Moon 7.5
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces by night give Mars 7.5, Jupiter 7.5, Moon 7.5 and Mercury 7.5
And because the beginning of the place obviously does not have the exact same temperament as the end of the place, the old astrologers have invented various divisional systems to explain for such differences, such as the Egyptian terms, the Chaldean terms, the Ptolemaic terms, the decans according to the heptazone, the dodekatemoria, the monomoiria by trigon, the monomoiria according to the heptazone, the monomoiria according to the Chaldean terms and many more similar fanciful systems that are built around contrived orders of symmetry, but with completely unfounded arguments in nature.

This natural division, however, is based on the four winds and the four elements, can be felt in the air, and explains for all differences within the places. Because the winds often experience increase of power through predomination, or stillness through predomination of the contrary wind, or admixture through predomination of neighbouring winds, the places are divided into four equal bounds of 7.5 - so that the first bound is the wind blowing with twice the power, the second bound is the wind receiving an admixture from the wind of the following angle, the third bound is the wind receiving an admixture of the wind from the opposite angle that produces stillness, and the fourth bound is the wind receiving an admixture from the wind of the preceding angle. One can observe this change from the powers of the planets.

Quote:
20. Universe
Planets in their houses, elevations, trigons and bounds are powerful
Planets in houses, elevations, trigons and bounds of planets with the same sect are operative
Planets in houses, elevations, trigons and bounds of planets with the opposite sect are inoperative
Planets in their depressions are inoperative

Morning additive planets are powerful
Morning subtractive planets are operative
Evening additive planets are operative
Evening subtractive planets are inoperative
When planets receive both powerful and inoperative influence, we must count it as operative admixture. In general, morning subtractive planets are slightly more operative than evening additive planets, and predominations of the opposite sect paralyze less than depressions, thus these are given in this order.

Quote:
21. Nativity
Midheaven is powerful
Hour-Marker is powerful
Post-ascension of Midheaven is powerful
Post-ascension of Hour-Marker is powerful

Setting is operative
Anti-Midheaven is operative
Post-ascension of Setting is operative
Post-ascension of Anti-Midheaven is operative

Pre-ascension of Midheaven is inoperative
Pre-ascension of Hour-Marker is inoperative
Pre-ascension of Setting is inoperative
Pre-ascension of Anti-Midheaven is inoperative
Rising and culminating planets are more powerful than setting and anti-culminating planets, but declining planets are always inoperative relative to the nativity. The places are ordered by power from most powerful to most inoperative, the ascensions are of course more powerful than the post-ascensions. The combined power relative to the universe is added to the power relative to the nativity.

Moisture and dryness clearly oppose each other, but why would moisture oppose both heat and cold, which oppose each other as contrary powers? Why isn't Saturn and cold also feminine lending to perfect symmetry?

The reasoning is physical. Dry air heats and cools extremely fast, which leads to high variation between diurnal and nocturnal temperature in deserts compared to little variation in humid regions as moisture slows both heat and cold. As in eastern, morning and equinoctial planets, the male takes the first place that is faster, and as in western, evening and solstitial planets, the female takes the second place that is slower. I hope that the ladies don't get offended, since the two maleficent planets are the ones that are masculine.

I recommend the physical method of hourly trisections - the so-called Placidus house system with no offsets or blendings. Cusps are not important, but rather the local time it takes for the planetary and lot placements to rise, culminate, set and anti-culminate.

Configurations within 1 are complete

15 is the boundary before the beginning of the next configuration or the lack thereof, an additional reason is that it is the half of a place. Each interval is doubled in distance from the previous as 1 + 2 = 3 + 4 = 7 + 8 = 15, an additional reason is that these approximate one day, three days, one week and two weeks of the lunar months.

There are very few natural reasons for the usage of configurations by signs, ascensions and the so-called planetary orbs. Such we shall omit, likewise the usage of applications and separations is superfluous as we prefer current placements configurations at a given moment, and not motions in the future, otherwise the powers of the angles would be superfluous.
Let us expound on the obscure doctrine of physical aspects. Most astrologers have posited occult visual rays as an explanation, but actually one needs neither the obsolete emission theory of vision, nor the musical theory of the ancients, nor numerology to give an explanation for these schemata.

It will suffice to give some physical examples with the four seasons, which change at assembly, tetragon and diameter with the equinoxes and solstices, and the four phases of the Moon, which causes the highest tides in assembly and diameter with the Sun, and the lowest tides in tetragon with the Sun, though with more constant tidal range.

Of these configurations, the diameter appears more disharmonious than the assembly, because of the contrary seasons, while the assembly appears more disharmonious than the tetragon because it shares the line of the diameter, but the natures of the first two are tempered by the winds of the same nature and sect carried by the triangular figures (for reasons we have given above), so that the assembly becomes common, while the diameter becomes similar to the tetragon.

Thus I posit that the seven planets have the same effect within any of these configurations - Jupiter and Venus help, Saturn and Mars harm, Sun, Moon and Mercury join their effects with either group. I posit that the winds of the same nature and sect also carry out configurations by themselves, which are harmonious - Jupiter and Venus help in the same way, Saturn and Mars do not harm for the most part, because their effects have been tempered, Sun, Moon and Mercury join their effects with either group. Finally I posit that all configurations carry out the effects and most common predominations of planets, because they carry out physical causes, as has been shown, and which agrees with the experience and the traditions of the ancients.

At the equator, the same configurations occur, but not because of the zodiac, but because of the angles. But notice how superfluous is the objection of those who want the boundaries of the places to prevent configurations - is the Moon at 1 Aries moving away from the Sun at 30 Pisces, not in conjunction, and doesn't it have the same effect on the tides, as if it were at 30 Pisces? The predomination by place is surely different, but this does not affect the configurations, which are almost the same in daylight anyways, even though that one is moving over the half, which has an effect on the Moon, but not on the configuration, for the planet is in the middle of its influence, while the place is around the middle of its influence, which is the 15th degree, and which does not spill over the other places. Finally, if the configurations were hinged on the zodiac, rather than the other way around, there will be no aspects at the equator, which is contrary to reason - there are phases and differentiation of the angles. Besides, some hexagons occur within same seasons, while others within neighbouring seasons, some trigons occur within neighbouring seasons, while others within contrary seasons, yet no one changes his interpretation due to hard boundaries of the seasons, but rather because of the distance of signs.

Objection: You showed that the four winds and their rulers are based on the powers of the twelve signs, but this shows that harmonious sextile and trine figures need to be carried only within signs which are in such configurations, thus favouring the hard boundaries of signs over aspects.

Answer: I showed that each wind and its predominator is based on the powers of three places, which influence spreads 90 degrees which individually are in perfect configurations, and always in moderate configuration with their middles. But if we take a planet to have an influence over a place in the exact same way, and which is rarely in the middle of its place, but rather in constant motion through all twelve places with all different winds, this would lead us to the opposite conclusion, that there are no hard boundaries over configurations. The same logic applies to the other configurations.



Quote:
The 1/6 and 5/6 of the diameter are not configurations, because they are neither turning, nor do they belong to winds of the same nature and sect, so that even if they had relationship, this would be general and imperceptible.
''This would be general and imperceptible'' e.g. the Sun's obvious effect is strongest, but so constant and so general that it is practically imperceptible compared to the dynamic minor effects of the planets. So Manilius would have all signs in configurations with the dodecagon in this way. Saying that everything is configured with everything does not help us in any way, so I would rather call them not configured or disjunct, rather than configured with the weakest dodecagon.

Re: Apotelesmatika

The Greeks called their methods ''physical'', not in the sense that they are ''materialistic'', but in the sense of ''natural'' or ''scientific'' - Robbins usually favours the first translation (though he uses physical and scientific at times), Riley usually favours the second translation as ''scientific'' (though he uses physical and natural a few times). The terms are used by Ptolemy and Valens to separate their astrology from mythology, divination, numerology and magic, and to base them firmly on astronomy.

Thank you for posting this.
It makes astrology more rational and 'scientific' in the sense that it is logical and has reason.

Re: Apotelesmatika

Here is a list of some disagreements with Ptolemy - http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/...blos/home.html

1.4 - Moon should be moderately cooling instead of moderately heating
1.5 - Moon should therefore be common
1.7 - sects are the same, but I think the contrariety of natures applies only to the excessively heating and drying Mars, and not to the masculine Saturn
1.8 and 1.10 - I mention the additional moderate powers which I don't think that Ptolemy didn't consider (cf. the powers of the seasons in 1.10 and 3.11)
1.12 - I don't consider the shapes of the constellations either here or elsewhere such as quadrupedal, creeping, winged and watery in 2.7, quadrupedal and cutting in 3.8 and 4.9, large, small and graceful in 3.11, injurious and humpbacked in 3.12, terrestrial, aquatic and human in 4.4 etc.
1.13 - changed, see above
1.14 and 1.15 - I omit these schemes
1.17 - the climatological explanation is exhaustive and the geometrical - unnecessary
1.18 - I change the directions of the winds in accordance with 1.10, and I omit the moistening cooperating rulers of the eastern wind
1.19 - no change here, just noting that the explanation for the elevation of Jupiter in Cancer is useful for the explanation of the house of the Moon in Cancer
1.20 and 1.21 - I give another list with better reasoning, see above
1.23 - I omit proper faces because of my approach to 1.13 and 1.17, I don't mention thrones, rejoicing and paralysis but the end result is the same with my terminology of powerful, operative and inoperative
1.24 - omitted
2.2 - added instructions for equatorial, temperate and polar zones
2.3 - omitted, no need to explain why
2.4 and 2.5 - omitted stations and zodiacal familiarities because of 2.3
2.6 - changed the last sentence with the usage of 2.10-12
2.7 - omitted shapes and included elements, using the proximate angle instead of the preceding one (Asc or Mc in eclipses), using the combined zodiacal/phase/topical power instead of only the phase
2.8 - omitted the last paragraph because of 2.3 and universals
2.11 - omitted the combination of tropical signs with sidereal decans
2.12 - changed the last two parapegmatic paragraphs
2.13 - comets are not atmospheric signs
3.1 - the conception is superior to the nativity, not helpful to it
3.2 - https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...d.php?t=126636
3.3 - changed the order a bit - 3.9, 3.10 and 4.9 should precede the rest, I omit angular and succedent for timing
3.4 - I use Jupiter instead of Saturn and predominators instead of attendance
3.5 - changed to aspects to the derivative MC instead of aspects to the derivative 10th and 11th (???)
3.7 - changed because of 3.5 and counter-examples
3.8 - changed, omitted shapes, syzygies and sacred beasts
3.9 - the given configurations do not work very well - https://www.astro.com/astro-databank...fant_mortality
3.10 - Placidus instead of equal, different places in accord with 3.3 and other chapters, considering the zodiacal placement (cf. Valens' Anthology 3.1), omitted the Lot and predominators, omitted latitude and antiscia, Sun destroying the Moon with conjunction, and directions in the order of the leading signs
3.11 - omitted the last paragraph with constellations
3.12 - using Asc, Moon and predominators instead of 1st, 6th, 7th and ''certain configurations''
3.13 - I don't make difference between the phases of the inner and outer planets
3.14 - I give a list of conventional psychiatric disorders instead of epilepsy and water on the brain
4.3 - configurations and predomination instead of attendance, more focus on the Sun in accordance with 4.10
4.4 - reworked with predomination instead of placement in the MC > morning phase > predomination, using also Saturn and Jupiter instead of the three
4.5 - I omitted the last three paragraphs or rather changed them under a different abridged form in 3.13 / 41.
4.6 - using aspects to the MC instead of to the 10th and 11th (???)
4.7 - omitted primary directions for meetings, changed the 12th with the Lot
4.8 - using the Ascendant more in accordance with 4.10, using the four elements and qualities of the seasons instead of the constellations
4.10 - omitted the recurrence years and terms in primary directions, using predominations at the revolutions instead of profections
