Greetings earthlings

Hey there, astrology's one of my favorite hobbies ever. Glad I discovered so much more about it after finding out that moon signs are a thing, now I'm deciphering aspects like a pro (actually not but whatever.)

22nd January Aquarius (Capricorn cusp), Virgo moon, Libra ascendant. Can't tell you what my dominant planet is since every single calculator I've found on the internet shows different results oops.

Hope I'll get to learn more about astrology here. Take care guys, love you all!

Re: Greetings earthlings

Welcome to the forum.

There are different methods out there of finding your strongest planet; and yes-- they will give different results.

Do you have any planets located in the sign they rule? (domiciled) They are usually powerful.

members are given the designation "Senior Member"
after posting a certain number of comments
not that many

keep in mind that because ours is an astrological learning forum
where members practice astrological skills free
no one is paid therefore responses to threads
are often from members who are beginners like yourself
with little or no experience
keen to learn by practice
members are encouraged to discuss interpreting their own charts to learn by practice
we also have members with many years of astrological study completed
members have day jobs
and those of our members who are professionals
do not provide a complete professional reading for free


our ELECTIONAL AND EVENT ASTROLOGY BOARD
is at https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...isplay.php?f=6

https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...d.php?t=111980

2) Click on the Attachment icon (if you don't see it, select 'Advanced' posting first)

3) New window will open, paste the image address, click Upload button, close the window

if that is for some reason not possible
then
another option is, after creating the natal chart
then save the chart to your desktop
then when on the thread click to edit your post
then scroll down to the Attach Files box
then click on Manage Attachments
and follow the instructions on the screen to upload your chart that way

some navigation tips:
all are welcome - whether a TRADITIONAL astrologer or a MODERNIST astrologer
and
our forum hosts BOTH perspectives ON SEPARATE BOARDS

i.e.
our MODERN BOARD completely excludes traditional astrological comment
and
our TRADITIONAL BOARD completely excludes Modernist astrological comment

i.e.
We have a modernist board AS WELL AS a traditional board
and then
the rest of our forum is composed of GENERAL ASTROLOGY THREADS

i.e.
whether a member is using Vedic astrology
Chinese astrology, Western Sidereal Astrology, Modernist Astrology Traditional Astrology
ALL perspectives are welcomed on our General Astrology board threads
and any member
may comment on our GENERAL ASTROLOGY BOARD using ANY astrological methodology

our HELP WITH FORUMS AND SUGGESTIONS board is at
https://www.astrologyweekly.com/foru...splay.php?f=22

to be clear then
our TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at
http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...splay.php?f=92

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.
Specifically it relies on Ptolemaic aspects sextile, trine, square, opposition and conjunction
and excludes modern planets Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
non-Ptolemaic aspects, 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.

our MODERNIST ASTROLOGY ONLY board
is at https://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=95
For discussions on Modern Astrology only.
Note: Typically, modern astrology is defined as using techniques developed around the late 1800s by Theosophists.
Specifically it relies on psychological, evolutionary, karmic, and non-western interpretation approaches
and includes Neptune, Uranus and Pluto
and non-Ptolemaic aspects.
The focus is more on psychological chart interpretation instead of prediction.

I only have my Uranus domiciled but my Venus in 2nd house and Mercury's in 3rd if that holds any significance. I've read somewhere that the chart ruler is simply the ruler of the ascendant and I've though about it like that. According to the simple chart delineation by Pillen my dominant planet's Venus (12.7%) followed by Moon (12.3%) though I'm not sure whether to trust this or not.

Does the Sun count as "strongest planet'? Or, is it in a different category altogether?

Re: Greetings earthlings

Some modern astrologers will conflate planets, signs, and houses "by the numbers." I am a bit more "classical" in my approach, and don't link them up in that way.

Modern astrologers often use the planet ruling the sign on the ascendant as the chart ruler, but there are other methods that get more complicated.

As you study more astrology you can decide which methods work best for you.
