Hybrid astrology

No memes.

And please, no belligerent beating up of the other side.

This thread is posted in the hopes that we can have a discussion on the future of astrological methods. I've posted it in the modern section because any mention of (shhhhh) modern outer planets would get us bounced out of the traditional board, but I hope we can include traditional methods here.

What I mean by "hybrid" is a chart-reading style that happily crosses boundaries between modern, western traditional, Vedic, and even non-astrological methods. I hope that the old internecine wars between trads and mods of 20 years ago are vanishing, as we all learn and partake of methods useful in multiple traditions.

For example, are you primarily a modern western astrologer who uses lunar mansions (Vedic) and the sidereal zodiac? Whole signs houses? Do you look at essential dignities and debilities?

If you define yourself as a traditional western astrologer, do you on occasionally use modern outer planets? (I'm finding this to be fairly common.)

If your preference is Vedic astrology, have you adopted any western methods?

I hope you will share your experiences!
