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. 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.)

Does Via Combusta apply on natal charts, too?

Astrologers say that Via Combusta is associated with 'malefic' Mars/Saturn energies.

I have Mars and Saturn conjunct in Via Combusta in my natal chart in Scorpio.

Re: Does Via Combusta apply on natal charts, too?

Don't worry about it. Via Combusta is for horary.

Mars is in his own dominion in Scorpio, empowered. Does he also rule the house he occupies?

Is the conjunction applying or separating? What is the orb?
Are there aspects to other bodies? Is one or the other of the conjunction more impacted, emphasized by these?

There are many other questions that can be asked. The answer to each provides more information (when translated into practical terms) that builds a picture of the conjunction, gives it real-life meaning.

Don't be afraid of your horoscope. It's about your life. Life is good. It's all in your head.

Scorpio is intercepted in my chart. The house cusp is in Libra.

In my natal chart applying but in my secondary progression separating since Mars turned direct. In my life I feel Saturn overpowers Mars.... Even in Scorpio. The orb is 2°40'.

They touch almost everything in my chart. Trine my Moon, sextile my Jupiter, oppose my Mercury, trine my ascendant, quincunx my Sun and Venus, trine my MC.... And square my Part of Fortune.

The area between 15 Libra and 15 Scorpio
is termed the Via Combusta: 'Fiery Road' or 'Combust Way'
is considered to be a debilitating area
particularly detrimental to the Moon.
Al Biruni wrote of it
"The combust way is the last part of Libra
and the first of Scorpio.
These two signs are not congenial to the Sun and the Moon
on account of the obscurity and ill-luck connected with them
and because each of them is the fall of one of the luminaries.
They also contain the two malefics, the one by exaltation (Libra, Saturn)
the other by house (Scorpio, Mars)."
This may be a very ancient aphorism
originating from the period when 15 Libra
corresponded with the autumn equinox http://www.skyscript.co.uk/gl/via_combusta.html

'...All ancient astrologers placed greatest significance upon heliacal risings and settings
and ancient Mesopotamian astrology was also heavily predisposed to
observance of these planetary phenomena.
The Egyptians recorded it more widely
with their attention spread to all stars and constellations.
A star's heliacal setting was envisioned as a form of death
with its period of invisibility regarded as a time of imprisonment
in Duat, the Underworld, a place where it faced a perilous journey
of transformation and renewal.
Its emergence in the east, in its heliacal rising, was hailed
as its rebirth, when it arose refreshed to begin a new life cycle....'


'….With this image in mind we understand derivation of
traditional astrological terms 'combust'
and 'under the Sun's beams' as signifying greatest fear,
imprisonment, impotency or death.
A planet combust was hidden, unable to exert influence
undergoing a state of transformation.
In 13th century text of Guido Bonatus
we see similarity between mythological perspective of Egyptians
and traditional interpretation of combustion.
He explains that a planet combust
has no strength in signification:
The fortunes when combust and under Sun's beams, signify none,
or very little good;
and the infortunes in like case have little or no virtue to signify ill....'

Re: Does Via Combusta apply on natal charts, too?

'...Via Combusta spans the signs
where the luminaries experience their 'fall',
which many have pointed to
as source for its malefic reputation.
However, when tropical zodiac was introduced 6th century BC,
Vernal Equinox was not firmly established
but among early degrees of Aries.

Older authorities placed it at 15th degree, so possibly
a symbolic association attached itself
to region extending from 15th degree of Libra,
as the area of the Sun's seasonal 'death' at the Autumn Equinox.

Certainly, name suggests connection with being 'hidden'
and amongst the Egyptians, all connected with
absence from visible world,
(including deceased men and stars disappearing from view,
either by falling beneath the western horizon
or entering into helical setting), were considered to
enter dark, uncharted region of Duat....' http://www.skyscript.co.uk/heritage/egyptians.html

And then there awaits Serpentis, at 19 Scorpio.

We are considering the radix. So, Mars is intercepted, ultimately applies to Saturn but is Rx at birth, with an orb of -2°40'?

Each and all of these conditions contains a good deal of information about you, and Mars-Saturn. Now comes study of the literature, to see what each of these conditions implies, then synthesis within your own mind.

Combustion is when a planet is too close to the Sun.

The Via Combusta is a 30° space in the Zodiac and the Moon is afflicted here.

Both Mars and Saturn are intercepted. And both are Rx in natal chart. Saturn in 11°Sco 0' and Mars in 13°Sco 42'. So it's an applying aspect. That's why I feel Saturn overpowers Mars even he's in own sign.

My Mars has already turned direct in my progressed chart so they are separating.
