Yes, it applies to everything in the universe, but it is sensible mostly with the Moon because it is very near the Earth. Planets change seconds iirc. I've written about this before.

I've been checking Perihelion postions, using the Sun as a marker. Same as locating the First Point of tropical Aries using the Sun's position at the beginning of the Vernal Equinox in the Northern hemisphere.

Have you looked at my Voyage of Discovery thread in Other Astrology?
I remember you wanted an explanation for the tropical Ages I was talking about.
Kat, any opinion of yours is welcome, good, bad, or indifferent.

Plain ignorance is rarely shameful, but plain ignorance masquerading as expertise is among the most cringe-inducing experiences in life.

No. Has J.A. finally come around to accepting Pluto as an astrological planet???

That would mean that H*ll, if such a place actually exists, has frozen over!

IIRC Uranus and Neptune have perceptible effects by perturbation on the orbits of the planets, so they have some naked-eye potential in this regard, Pluto doesn't really.

The tropical Ages have major effects by perturbation on the predictable effects of the sidereal Ages.

Pluto's orbit approaches closer to the Sun than Neptune's.

Are you sure that constellations objectively exist?

Do Sign-boundaries objectively exist? The constellations appear to be clustered from our vantage point on Earth. And, the Sun appears to be orbiting the Earth. The "fixed" stars make a round trip each day, relative to the invisible Ascendant point. Etc.

Does the Sun turn southwards at the first degree of Cancer and northwards at the first degree of Capricorn? There are a lot of natural reasons for the division of the seasons into three.

Have you checked out my new thread with a book and commentary?

Just for the record, I don't believe the constellations are what cause the Age-effect. They're "sky-hooks" for symbolic imagery.

The tropical Signs are measured intervals. Why not divide a seasonal quadrant in half, instead of thirds? Naturalistic=convenient, not necessarily astrologically correct.
The sidereal, equal Signs, are superimposed on the unequal-length constellations. In fact, the constellations themselves aren't used in their entirety to locate the boundaries. For example, many Modernistic, Western astrologers are using just one star from one constellation, pictured as a bull, to locate all the Sign-boundaries.

Twelve months? Four triangles, elements and winds? Observable differences of beginning, middle and end?

Convenient, but not necessarily astrologically correct. We choose them, they're not emblazoned in the sky. That includes all the sidereal Sign-boundaries as well.
