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.)

reception in synastry?

As I scratch the surface of traditional astrology with intrigue and wonder, it crosses my mind that the application of reception or mutual reception between planets across charts in synastry might provide important information. I suspect that synastry may be modern, but don't know. However, I am wondering if any traditional astrologers have an opinion about its meaningfulness or value in this particular circumstance.

Thank you,

Re: reception in synastry?

You're right, there really isn't any synastry in traditional astrology, so there isn't much to work with in this. But I think reception is reception is reception, so it should work like it normally does regardless of the context. Unfortunately, I'm not too keen on synastry or what it seeks to do or provide for people, so I can't really give any examples. :/
