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.)

What sign(s) were traditionally seen as powerful and strongest?

With modern astrology it is Scorpio but was this traditionally the case too?

We don't have that sort of stuff in trad. Come back when you want to learn it on its own terms instead of comparison with modern.

Oh wow so traditional astrology was actually impartial and made sense.

Since it is concerned with prediction, it is concerned with precision. One way to approach the subject is with the topical method worked by Ptolemy - http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/...los/3A*.html#1



In Ptolemy, one placement does not indicate anything by itself, instead a few things are investigated to attack a specific topic, in a methodological order.
