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.)

You are better informed on this point than I am, but some of the early authors talked about angularity as the most important principle in a planet's location in the horoscope, which is also not so sign-based. I think it took a while for the 12-signs, 12-houses horoscope to be codified; during which time there were competing techniques.

The Hellenists naturally put their own names onto the deities of other cultures, or said things like, "The Egyptians' god A is basically like our god B." So having a Greek name on a house does not signify that its tutelary spirit was originally Greek.

I wish I could do the research necessary to publish a paper.

I live in a pretty remote rural area and I can find only so many things on-line; even with access to on-line materials at a university library. I do use Inter-library loan occasionally; but really this kind of research needs an Egyptologist.
it is clear by simply reading over this thread
that petosiris was responding not to you - but to another poster - when he said:

you appear to have overlooked
that BEFORE making the comment regarding writing a paper
petosiris had quoted the following remark
The word "Horoscope" is from "Horus the Watcher"
and related to the word "horizon", and the word for an "hour" of time.
and then advised the poster to:
