Will we win our lawsuit?

The short story. In early April the new president of the board of the non profit my husband founded (and with whom there was already no love lost) went out of her mind and in collusion with an employee who was about to be fired did a lot of very nasty and not necessarily legal things in order to wrest control of the non profit away from my husband. Part of what she did in addition to firing him with no warning what so ever was file a complaint in court (something btw corporations are not supposed to do on their own behalf--they are supposed to have an attorney do it) alleging some pretty horrific and completely untrue fears about animal abuse.

No complaint of abuse had ever or to date has been filed with any regulatory agency (and we report to several), just these out of left field and unsubstantiated allegations, which were created out of whole cloth solely for the purpose of the second part of her actions, which were to force the court to "grant custody" for lack of a better term to the non profit of all the animals which at the time were housed in the facility, owned by us and leased to the non profit. It was an effort to skate around the significant fact that more than half of the animals here, as well as most of the equipment, the trademark, and the customer data base belong personally to us and had not yet been transferred in any way to the non profit.

In an effort to keep this brief (though I am more than willing to answer questions)...we have filed a counter suit for the return of our property (which we can prove beyond any doubt belongs to us since we have all the documentation, including many written instances of acknowledgement on the part of the board of our continued ownership of these assets. In addition, we have filed for damages for defamation of character, abuse of process, trespass, wrongful termination...yadda yadda.



Lilly said that the the strongest of the significators ought to have the victory.

In this case Venus (us) is essentially dignified for being in her own term (not much, but better than nothing, and she gets a big assist from the conjunction with Mercury in Gemini. She's in the 9th for being 5* or less from the cusp of the 9th, in bright degree, free from the beams, swift...

Mars is not so great. In detriment, combust, in the 8th and in welled degree. There is no aspect between Venus and Mars, though Venus receives Mars by domicile and triplicity (note that since I'm following Lilly in CA I have used his dignities.) Mars does not receive Venus. Lilly suggests that if there is one way reception then there is likelyhood of a settlement (which in this case is definitely one potential outcome) and that we should look to the planet that receives them both to see who would bring about the settlement. In this case it's Saturn.

Saturn is also significant because he is the ruler of the 4th, which is the end of all matters, and in this case present in the 1st, retrograde. He is also the exaltation ruler of the ASC. Does this give indication that the assets we own will be returned to us?

I am unclear as to how to determine whether damages will be awarded. Also, I would love for any one to offer an interpretation of the Moon's next aspect, which is to oppose Mars. Moon is in at least as poor condition as Mars and there is some interesting reception there. It looks like something is going to get ugly (which the situation already is, as indicated by the Moon's corruption.) The question is will it be even more ugliness for us? Mars is combust, so what ever Moon is pushing to him (disposition or management, since she has no power where she is) is going to be returned.

The chart seems to say that yes, we will win. But in the meantime it would help to know how.

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

Well, perhaps if I talk to myself here I can figure it out.

Next up I believe would be to check the fixed stars for the players/planets in the chart to get more insight into what is happening. I did this on the advice of a friend who has way more experience than I (well, just about everyone has way more experience than I do ) I have to say it was...pretty spot on in most respects.

Starting with Saturn, retrograde in the 1st house (good? bad? I mean it's Saturn in the 1st which isn't so great, yet Saturn is L4, or the end of the matter, retro in the 1st could indicate that which we own coming back to us?)

To investigate the fixed stars I used two sources, and anyone reading along can find all the references here

http://www.skyscript.co.uk/stars.html

or here

http://www.constellationsofwords.com

Saturn at 6* Scorpio gets Gacrux, the head of the Southern Cross. There isn't much about this star because the Southern Cross wasn't listed as a separate constellation until the 1600's, but it is given qualities similar to Bungula.

Quote:
Relationships to female persons often seem spoiled, or an existing relationship is stricken by exceptional circumstances.
You mean, like the female president of your board of directors deciding that she believes the histrionic machinations of a disgruntled employee (also female) who was staving off being fired for neglect and who wanted to be in charge? And the same female president wanting to prove her own power (while neglecting to investigate the allegations) by attempting to steal assets that do not belong to her organization and doing all in her power to defame the character of the organization's founder, just because she wants to show that she is more important and influential by conspiring in secret and browbeating other board members to go along with her? Hmmm.

So this potentially describes what has happened, but is it relevant to the question?

The Moon is at 14* Scorpio, and so gets Zuben Elgenubi, or the Southern Scale of Libra. Ouch. It is described as being like Saturn and Mars and it's influence is damaging (more corruption for the Moon.) It causes malevolence, obstruction, and unforgiving character (that sort of describes how I feel right now) violence, disease, lying, crime and disgrace. It is said that of the two scales (the Northern being justice) it is the "price to be paid."

Moon is the current situation and also the secondary significator of the querent. Well, I know (though I don't expect anyone else to take my word for it) that the querent isn't lying, hasn't been involved in a crime, and yet is suffering from disgrace of sorts due to the nature of the situation. Moon applies to an opposition with Mars as her next aspect and is pushing nature and management--she has no power in her position to push to him unless we could consider accidental dignity for being in the 1st. Somehow I don't think so, but maybe...Mars is combust though as well as being in welled degree, so whatever Moon is pushing to him will be returned. It's a bit of interesting reception, since Moon is in Mars' domicile and he is in her exaltation. Mutual reception by detriment/fall, which is never great to start with. The question is...Moon normally can't harm Mars from Scorpio. Can Mars harm Moon from Taurus??

Speaking of Mars, at 24* Taurus he gets quite a few fixed stars. Capalus, or the hilt of Perseus' sword. Possibility of willful blindness? Associated with blindness of some sort. As well as leaping to action without being able to look directly at the face of his opponent. (If that isn't an apt metaphor for this situation I don't know what would be.) There is also the possibility of a passionate energy "that can dissipate or turn inward due to a lack of focus."

Well, since their initial complaint was filed and they stole our property (did I mention that they also trespassed in our private residence as well as removing our animals from our facility prior to obtaining a court order?) they have lost 5 board members, the disgruntled employee who started this all was promoted to executive director and then demoted to co-director, and one employee was forced to quit. Lack of focus? Maybe.

Mars also gets Segin, which represents "beauty spoiled by vanity and greed, and a mother's pride falling into humility." Interesting bit, that, in light of what I said about Saturn's stars.

Most noticeably, Mars gets Algol. Lilly gave a whopping 5* and -4 detriment points for planets conjunct Algol, it's that malefic. "...indication of decapitation, hanging, or danger to the head." Ok, I'll admit that I've been a little vengeful, but I seriously don't want anyone to die. I'm wondering if this might also be more metaphoric, as in could this indicate the board president (the "head") being severed from the rest of the organization? In our counter suit we have filed against each party individually due to the egregious nature of what they did. Could the "head" be severed and left on the hook for all of it? Or, could it be an indication of them tying their own noose and then hanging from it??

The Sun, who as the ruler of the 10th cusp should be the judge, gets Mirfak, and all I can find of this star is "intelligent, bold and adventurous but a tendency to lie." Um, ouch?

Then comes the lovely trio, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter all sitting on the cusp of the 9th. Mercury, at 16* Gemini gets...wow. Rigel. So whoever Mercury is (our lawyer, since Mercury is L9?) is "famed for giving honor accompanied by responsibility." And "general influence...benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown..."

Well, I certainly hope this is our lawyer, since she (a young she) is not only working for 1/3 her normal hourly rate, but after two weeks with our case called and asked if she could do anything beyond our original retainer on contingency--how often does the lawyer ask for this instead of the other way around?--and her contingency proposal was half the normal 33 1/3 %.

Venus at 17* Gemini shares in Rigel's influence?

Jupiter at 22* Gemini also gets a number of stars, though they can be divided into two major ideas. First is Capella, or "the little she-goat." According to Lilly, Capella

Quote:
...begets in the the minds of men a curiosity together with much carefulness and fearfulness; such would know all things, and itch after novelties.
Jupiter also gets the stars of Orion's belt, namely Mintaka, Anilam, and Alnitak, as well as a couple of other Orion stars (Ensis and Hatsya.) The stars of Orion's belt are associated with good fortune and a keen intellect (and the possibility of being fat.) Lilly also says "a considerable portion from the means of an inheritance; gaine by joviall persons." Jupiter also gets El Nath, which from the skyscript site

Quote:
Nonetheless, El Nath enjoys a more favourable reputation than many of the stars in Taurus and is renown for giving fortune, favour and eminence, accompanied by a sharp wit. It carries some danger of quarrels, enmity, and 'many small losses' but overall its influence is a beneficial one and when harnessed, can propel and promote effectively.
Jupiter is L3, which is their L9. Could Jupiter be their own lawyer? I looked him up online (and yes, he's a little portly) and he seems to be an upright guy. Plus, our own attorney is familiar with him and says that he's a man of integrity, who helped to rewrite the rules of discovery for our state court system. The question is, with Venus and Mercury applying to Jupiter (Mercury is barring or prohibiting Venus from perfecting the conjunction, no?) do the stars just describe Jupiter, or is there some beneficial influence on the question/outcome?

Jupiter is also L5 or in the turned chart their L11. What house would represent rule insurance companies? As in Officers' and Directors' liability insurance? Would that be the 11th? Because more and more this is seeming like something that would settle out of court.

So, the players are:

Venus--us

Mars--them

Sun--the judge who is aspecting nobody and receives no one, but is separating from Mars.

Mercury--our lawyer? or someone else??

Jupiter--their lawyer? Their agent??

Moon--overall situation, also our co-significator.

Which leaves Saturn. Who or what is Saturn? The animals, or our assets, since they are a key part but otherwise seem to be unrepresented?

Since we are suing not only for the return of our assets but also for damages (and have filed against each party involved individually as well as as a group) would the $$ be their second house? Which is...Venus/us? If the querent and the quesited are the same planet, isn't that usually a yes?

Some news should be forthcoming Thursday June 20th, since we have our first hearing since this all started, on our motion for contempt of court. Our adversaries, after signing an agreement/court order initially opted to ignore their obligations re the court order, and had we not filed the motion they never would have obliged. Hopefully more to go on then.

Even if no members want to play along, this exercise is an education in horary in action.

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

I'm pretty sure that the next thing to investigate would be the Lots. I'm thinking the Lot of Victory here, and turning the chart from the Lot of Fortune...

The chart seems to be saying we will win, in settlement, however I'm way too close. And I did learn my lesson with a previous question (back in September, "Will we get our 501(c)3 status"--and that was a no--) that if the chart says no there is a reason for it. I can see a "no" answer based on some of the aspects, but perhaps that is me projecting my own fears or escalating my own hopes onto the reading. Oh well. We are talking about approximately $80,000 in tangible assets (the animals, their enclosures, and other equipment) that were stolen, as well as about $100,000 in intangible or "soft" assets. Add in the future income that would be able to be derived from those intangibles, and perhaps we can start to see why tsmall is so terribly worried about this chart. Everything we own, everything we have sacrificed for, and every dream we have had is tied up in this one question.

So let it be written, so let it be done.

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

tsmall, I am so sorry that you are in this position. As a learner question, is it not said that the chart should not be read if Saturn is in the 1st and if Asc is in a late degree?
I am just wondering about the extent to which this is a valid chart.

Thank you for appealing to the Traditionalists by using Regiomontanus, and yes Anthrodite, yourself looks to have the best of it.

I assume since I haven't as of yet read of Bright degrees(would love to hear the references to such), but the 5 degrees you mention do correlate with Lilly's 5 degree rule, of which he says '...the vertue will be given to that house...', which is the actual trial.

What worrys me upon this is the the Judge, lord of tenth, is in cjt. though combusting the lord of the 7th, your adversary. It would appear absent the Combust that the judge or jururs may initially favor your opponent.

I have a simular horary in progress though Not as clear cut as yours as you can see:

http://skyscript.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7352

These types of horarys truly need to weigh out every testimony as in Lilly's point sytem as you don't wish to fight and be defeated with cost, reputation, and the resentments it is going to cause.

Thanks Mandy.

I'm just a learner too. I had the same questions (and still do ) but I believe that if Saturn is a significator then we aren't supposed to worry about his being in the 1st house.

ASC is late, and is also Via Combust (as is Moon, but Moon is like half a degree away from being freed from it.) From what I've been reading today late ASC means I probably already know the outcome (honestly though, I don't, because it still seems like it could go either way based on what has already been allowed to happen.) Via Combust likely describes the fact that I'm freaking the freak out over the situation. Also seems to suggest that there could be a surprise outcome to the chart.

Here is a reference for degree types.

No joke. Initially our "oppnent/s" attempted to file an ex parte motion to simply remove the animals after the police (the officer they hired for civil standby and the ones who came when I called 911 to report the theft) said they had to have a court order. Luckily a friend of a friend reached a lawyer who appeared in our driveway in time to help my husband prevent that from happening, but what did happen was a complaint they filed listing vague allegations (with no evidence offered) of abuse and their "absolute fear" that if the animals were left in our care my husband would kill them. The judge treated it as a custody case and not a property case and refused to hear about ownership. Which is how they ended up signing an agreement, that then then chose to ignore.

Well tsmall you are far from a beginer, maybe beyond intermediate, wish more on the Forum were as dedicated. See in my locality there is an astrologer whom has owned several bookstores that are occult oreinted, does astrology and horary yet has never heard of William F. Lilly, Dorothy J. Kovach, Deborah Holding or the Forums they host. Scarry isn't it?

You are on the right track so don't despair, something you didn't mention was Lilly's five degree orb allowed to North Node, and your cjt with Luna is closer, you are very blessed with this.

Mandy, you have been reading those Modernes like most of us start out reading, as Kronus in the 1st as a stricture does not mean it is unreadable, it's just a yellow caution light flashing.

And he admits that he made a mistake buying that house(RARE for taureans to admit they made a mistake, shows much integrity on his part), it would be nice if those confused in their Moderne Horary studies could admit they ought to be studying Traditionalism, because as artists answering our own queries we are involved and we want to have it our way, unlike when we do work for others!

Wise men truly know how little they know

Matthew 2:1-12 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)


2 Therefore when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Juda, in the days of king Herod, lo! astrologers [lo! kings, or wise men,] came from the east to Jerusalem,
2 and said [saying], Where is he, that is born [the] king of Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and we have come to worship him.
3 But king Herod heard, and was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And he gathered together all the princes of priests, and scribes of the people, and inquired of them, where Christ should be born.
5 And they said to him, In Bethlehem of Juda; for so it is written by a prophet,
6 And thou, Bethlehem, the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda; for of thee a duke shall go out, that shall govern my people Israel.
7 Then Herod called privily the astrologers [the kings], and learned busily of them [busily learned of them] the time of the star that appeared to them.
8 And he sent them into Bethlehem, and said, Go ye, and ask ye busily of the child, and when ye have found, tell ye it to me [tell again to me], that I also come, and worship him.
9 And when they had heard the king, they went forth [went away]. And lo! the star, that they saw in the east [And lo! the star which they saw in the east], went before them, till it came, and stood above, where the child was.
10 And they saw the star, and joyed with a full great joy.
11 And they entered into the house, and found the child with Mary, his mother; and they felled down, and worshipped him. And when they had opened their treasures, they offered to him gifts, gold, incense, and myrrh.
12 And when they had taken an answer in sleep, that they should not turn again to Herod, they turned again by another way into their [own] country.[a]

As Sidney Omarr wrote '...if the astrologers in Matthew had been followers of Satan rather than of God why did they not turn in the child's where abouts to the evil King Herod?'

Well thanks, but if that were true I'd at least be able to figure out all the significators and not still be quessing.

And that ASC is conjunct Spica and Antares, so about the only place in the Via Combust that has any fortune associated with it.

The thing is, Mr. Soule, the Moon is very close to it's North Node. There's a reason for that, since the Moon was eclipsed two days after I asked this question. And yes, as an astrology student I knew the stars weren't in very good places in the sky at the time, and I knew we were at the end of a three eclipse cycle that might not bode well for questions. Believe me when I say I considered asking for many weeks (from April 9th until May 23rd) before I finally figured out that it's ok to ask the question. The stars align the way they do for a reason. And the reason will be reflected in the chart.

I don't think it's just Mandy, or necessarily the fault of "modern" horary astrologers. It takes a while to work through all the literature (I haven't) to be able to understand that that the strictures against judgement, whether from Lilly or Bonati or any of a number of ancients don't mean we can't read the chart. They just are like the little warning signs you see on the road when you're driving. Like "caution, watch for falling rocks," or "ess curves ahead," or slow down, idiot, it's not cool to go 100 mph in a 20 mph zone.

I actually recorded the time the question arrived to me full blown (on my drive home from work) to share with another friend who is an astrologer precisely because we are not supposed to read our own questions. I didn't make the chart for a couple of days after that.

Exactly for the reasons you illustrate with the Lilly example is why I'm trying to be objective, and why I posted this chart in the forum. When I first approached it with Lilly's methods it looked like a slam dunk. Given the state of my own natal 8th house, well, let's just say slam dunk seems highly unlikely.

I wouldn't say I'm "lusting" after anything, though I did catch the Taurean reference , I happen to be a highly Libran person. Perhaps that is why I wish to explore all the things that can go wrong with the outcome. Do I dream of a big settlement? Well I admit it would be nice. At this point, I just want to make sure that justice will be served, but more importantly since we have already started rebuilding our zoo, and have already had cancelled or taken most of their contracts...I just want this over, and the allegations dropped.

I believe I mentioned that we need permits to conduct business? USDA, US Fisheries and Wildlife, and our state's Fish and Game division. The permits were transferred into the name of the non profit, and so with the separation we needed to reapply for them in the name of our business. USDA happened lightening fast, Fisheries and Wildlife is on it's way, but Fish and Game is dragging its feet until the situation is resolved.


What I truly would like to hear is all the ways it could go against us. Ptolemy said it best when he said that Prescience is Useful. Because if you can face the worst ahead of time and figure out a plan, then you can approach your fate calmer in mind.

Venus is a Night Planet, and works best when she is in the Night Sky, not the Day Sky. If Venus is in the Day Sky, Venus should be east of Sun, rising ahead of him, not behind him. Venus is also in Gemini, a Masculine Sign and in the 9th Sign/House, which is a Masculine House.

Those three things together make Venus Out-of-Sect.

A Planet that is Out-of-Sect signifies something or someone that is not what they appear to be; that is doing something contrary to its own nature or what it would normally do; or is doing something wholly inappropriate.

Does any Planet harm or help Venus?

Mercury is joining Venus. Mercury is a Feminine Planet in this Chart, because Mercury is rising behind Sun. When Mercury rises ahead of Sun, he is a Masculine Planet. Being a Feminine Planet, Mercury ought to be Below the Horizon, but it is not, and like Venus, Mercury is a Feminine Planet in a Masculine Sign and Masculine House....Mercury is Out-of-Sect.

We can say the same for Mercury as Venus, plus add to that Mercury is Out-of-Bounds and in a Pitted Degree.

The only saving grace here is Mutual Reception, Venus receives Mercury by Term, and Mercury receives Venus by Sign.

Are those Planets Malefic in any way?

No, so we can refine our judgment to Planets acting contrary to their nature (think of Stan & Bran: "Did you call the next witness? I don't have the phone number" --- kind of thing).

Mars rules the opposition, Peregrine, sitting in a Pitted Degree, within 12° of the Tail, and in Taurus, which is the 8th Sign....in indicator of failure.

That's a good thing for you.

Unlike Pitted Mercury who gets a slight boost from Benefic Venus to help negate some of the unfortunate circumstances, Mars gets no help at all, but is not further harmed by any other Planets. Mars is also Under Beams and Escaping combustion, moving toward his 1st Station.

The 10th Sign in this chart is Cancer, ruled by Scorpio Moon. The next aspect Moon makes is an opposition with Sun then Mercury. Note that both Mercury and Saturn will go retrograde soon, frustrating whatever that was to be. It's worth noting that Mercury rules your opponent's 6th House of Animals, indicating they might be forced to return whatever it was they took...forced because Retrograde Mercury will be colliding with Sun (in an Human Sign).

Moon cannot aspect Venus, because Mercury blocks Venus.

Venus, Mercury and Jupiter are assembling at 20°, 21° and 22° respectively. I would like to tell you what that means, but I've never seen an assembly operate in a legal chart before. Mercury, being the strongest by being most dignified (Jupiter is a Day Planet in a Masculine Sign/House and so in Hayz and that helps to offset some of the Detriment Gemini causes --- even so Jupiter is Peregrine) will rule the assembly.

I'm inclined to believe it to be a positive for you, since both Jupiter and Venus (Benefics) are received by Sign Ruler Mercury.

Note that Jupiter rules your 6th.

If there are any surprises in the Chart, that would be Mercury and Saturn changing direction, with Mercury going Retrograde, and Saturn going Direct about 12 days apart.

The other thing worth noting is placement of the Head/Tail in the 2nd/8th.

This has by far got to be the best and easiest to understand key to interpreting sect I have read.

This is so accurate it isn't even funny. The entire situation is "contrary to our nature" or anything we've ever had to deal with and has forced us to do things we normally wouldn't. As far as Mercury, well she's mostly worked on family court stuff and this case is pretty far out of her wheelhouse as well. The Stan & Bran analogy is completely perfect.

So something like they've done their worst and now have to live with it? I was rather hoping the non-profit would have to fold, but this sounds a bit like they may be able to cut their losses and regroup when all is said and done.

I have to admit that the chart made more sense to me (because Cancer is intercepted) when I looked at it in whole signs.

We miss them. It's been too quiet here. We also know that at least one of them has died since the move.

Conjunct 'in mundo' aka mundane aspect?

OR

Conjunct 'in zodiaco' aka conventional zodiacal aspect?

OR BOTH?



'in mundo' aka mundane aspects work irrespective of whether using Sidereal or Tropical so this article link is relevant

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

MARTIN GANSTEN on Mundane aspects:

'….There are (at least) three quite different varieties of mundane aspects:

The ancients used (when they used them) aspect angles calculated by oblique ascension. If the point on the celestial equator rising with planet A was 120 degrees distant from the point on the celestial equator rising with planet B, then, by this reckoning, planets A and B were in ascensional trine.

16th century, Magini suggested calculating aspect angles in right ascension - planets' positions are projected directly onto celestial equator, if two such projections happen to be 120 degrees apart, then the planets in question are considered to trine....'



'….The method most in vogue today (among the few who use non-zodiacal aspects at all) is the one invented by Placidus in 17th century, which is based on proportional semi-arcs.

Every semi-arc is equated to 90 degrees, so that if planet A is exactly on the ascendant, and planet B has gone one-third of the way from the midheaven to the descendant, then planets A and B are considered to form a mundane trine....'

I was rushed this morning, but I meant to ask re the degrees. I get Mercury and Venus at 16 and 17 of Gemini, but I know when I first loaded the chart into either Oracle or Morinus (I forget which, since I did both) I got 20 and 21 for Mercury and Venus. It's not important, I was just wondering since I always have to scroow around with the charts and time to get them right in both programs.

At any rate...agreeing in the journey and assembly. I would swear that their lawyer is helping us. Perhaps not intentionally, but. From our first communication with him all the way up to today when both their response to our counter suit as well as supporting documentation (which completely contradicts what is said in the response)...call it gut or whatever you will, but I get the feeling that while he may not actively be helping us, he certainly isn't hurting us. And I swear he's leaving little sign posts along the way for us to pick up on.

I only mention this because we were talking about sect, and planets acting contrary to their nature. Jupiter is of the sect of the chart, and as you explained in hayz (still have a bruise on my forehead from that one, and I guarantee I won't forget again) does it work similarly in horary as it does in natal? As in, the ASC ruler is out of sect, but it's a day chart. Which means all the diurnal planets in a natal chart want to work with the native as much as they are able? In this case, if possible do all the diurnal planets want to work with the querent?

Meanwhile, Thursday has gone from a hearing on our motion for contempt to a hearing on all the pretrial motions. Including our motion to dismiss the original complaint due to lack of standing. The minutes sent to us by their attorney, as well as the recording they made of the meeting when all this happened, clearly show that there was never a resolution authorizing the board president to enter into an engagement (a court complaint) as outlined in the by laws of the non profit...and even with the Supreme Court decision on Citizen's United, corporations are still prohibited from representing themselves in court. Meaning that they needed to have a lawyer file the original complaint and not a member of the board.

I'll post an update when I have one, but wouldn't it be fantastic (I'm not holding my breath here..my life never works out like this...but my husband's does) if the unexpected event is the whole case being dismissed?

I tried the idea of making an even chart for the time of the hearing, but the problem is that with NH Superior Court all the cases on the docket are called for the same time. Meaning our hearing could be any time between 9 am when court convenes and 1 pm when it recesses for lunch. Someone ought to tell them this doesn't work for astrologers.

I saw that too.

There is also the possibility of a passionate energy "that can dissipate or turn inward due to a lack of focus."

Well, since their initial complaint was filed and they stole our property (did I mention that they also trespassed in our private residence as well as removing our animals from our facility prior to obtaining a court order?) they have lost 5 board members, the disgruntled employee who started this all was promoted to executive director and then demoted to co-director, and one employee was forced to quit. Lack of focus? Maybe.

Mars also gets Segin, which represents "beauty spoiled by vanity and greed, and a mother's pride falling into humility." Interesting bit, that, in light of what I said about Saturn's stars.

Most noticeably, Mars gets Algol. Lilly gave a whopping 5* and -4 detriment points for planets conjunct Algol, it's that malefic. "...indication of decapitation, hanging, or danger to the head." Ok, I'll admit that I've been a little vengeful, but I seriously don't want anyone to die. I'm wondering if this might also be more metaphoric, as in could this indicate the board president (the "head") being severed from the rest of the organization? In our counter suit we have filed against each party individually due to the egregious nature of what they did. Could the "head" be severed and left on the hook for all of it? Or, could it be an indication of them tying their own noose and then hanging from it??
dr. farr, what do you think Mars conjunct Algol means here?

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

Could add to the opponents detrimented situation (Mars detriment), might indicate their hurting their own case by extreme claims, even extreme or very hostile, actions.
Will PM you my fuller delineation of your horary over next day (hopefully by Thursday at the latest)

Yes. I should have clarified that when looking at an Assembly (the Stellium in Modern Astrology), you have to weigh the actors involved.

Two Planets are [inherently] Benefic: Jupiter and Venus
Two Planets are Malefic: Saturn and Mars
Two Planets can be both: Sun and Mercury

There's a disagreement among the ancients as to whether Jupiter/Venus can ever be truly Malefic (and likewise for Saturn/Mars being truly Benefic).

If Sun/Mercury are Unfortunate (Retrograde Mercury or either in Detriment/Fall, in the Term of a Malefic, having the Malefics "look" at them from other Signs/Houses, with the Tail, etc) and the are in square or opposition aspect, or joined by body without Reception (except for Cazimi) they can be Malefic.

What we see here is Mercury traveling from a Benefic -- Venus -- to a Benefic -- Jupiter, and within the context of an Assembly.

In any chart, Natal, Mundane Event, Horary, Electional, when a Planet (especially a significator) is moving from a Benefic to a Benefic, or is enclosed or "besieged" by Benefics, that is a good/positive thing.

And, yes, Planetary Speed matters (Saturn is never going to move to Venus), but even Saturn besieged by Benefics is a good thing.

We already established that Mercury is Benefic here...yes, Pitted, but that only shows the state of mind/being of what Mercury represents, and indicates whether Mercury can function to its fullest potential.

So, Venus is moving from a Benefic Mercury, to Benefic Jupiter, which is good and that's why I said I was inclined to believe the Assembly to be positive/good over all.

All of that applies as well to a Planet traveling from a Malefic to a Benefic, and also separating from a Malefic to Benefic, as well as from a Benefic to a Malefic, or being enclosed or besieged by Malefics.

Really important. One of the keys to correctly reading a chart.

Understand that a person/thing doing something contrary to its nature or what it normally does is not the same thing as being hesitant or reluctant, since the activity or behavior is already taking place.

Mars is not Out-of-Sect, and seeing how Mars is Pitted, with Algol, Peregrine, and in Detriment and with the Tail in Taurus, that is who they are ---freaking mean people --- and seeing how Taurus represents animals, they probably shouldn't be allowed within 100 meters of any animal, including orang-u-tans and wallabies.

Okay, for general guidelines in refining judgments on Out-of-Sect Planets, if the Planet is Fortunate or otherwise in decent condition, it signifies a person or thing that is acting contrary to its nature, often doing things it would not normally do. The outcome may be good or bad.

In all cases, you have to refine your judgment within the context of the chart and chart type.

Natally, suppose the Significator of Wealth was Out-of-Sect? That tells you a lot about the Native's finances and wealth, and correctly delineating the chart ---- Planet [& Condition], Sign, House, Aspect Always is what helps you do that.

Within the context of the chart, the Native may be frugal, but occasionally act contrary to his nature and splurge a little. Suppose the 9th House/Sign was involved, then perhaps the Native spends money occasionally to take foreign holidays....maybe the Native is frugal precisely because they want to save money for foreign holidays.

Suppose Moon is Out-of-Sect, then perhaps an occasional emotional outburst, or if Moon with Saturn then occasionally doing something on the spur-of-the-moment, or Moon with Mars, some risk-taking (and if Mars is the Significator of Wealth then financial risk taking).

If Venus was in Fall, Detriment, with Tail, with her own Nodes etc, I would have concluded that what you were doing was wholly inappropriate....and that runs the gamut from something as [seemingly] innocent as mediating a dispute between family, your children, your friends, your neighbors or co-workers all the way to criminal activity.

Read the chart; look at the Significators involved. That's why I used to say if you don't want it know, don't post a chart, because there's a few people here who will know who and what they are....one cannot hide from us.

You see Out-of-Sect Planets a lot in relationship charts. The Querent may be married or involved in a relationship, and inappropriately pursuing another, or it could be the Quesited, or it could be that the relationship is in appropriate on religious grounds, moral grounds, Social Class or any number of other factors (read the chart), and the outcome could be harmful to someone, or not. Yes, the outcome could be positive.

For job queries, what the Querent is doing may be inappropriate --- Should I quit my job/seek another job? No, that would be inappropriate or inappropriate at this time.

Often the job itself is inappropriate to the Querent, meaning the querent applied for a job they are not qualified or trained to perform.

In Buying/Selling, is the Querent acting appropriately? Is this something the Querent ought to be doing? Is the item itself appropriate or inappropriate?

In Natal Charts, again for the Moon, it might indicate someone who is prone to emotional outbursts, rather than occasionally venting. If the Significator of Wealth is involved, it could be a person that spends money inappropriately....why? Read the chart...there's a difference between people who spend money to soothe/comfort themselves, and those just blow it at every opportunity.

What if it was the Significator of Marriage? They might pursue relationships that are inappropriate, or for other 7th House Matters, they might go after business relationships that are not appropriate, and then there's the 11th House and Friends, and 3rd House relationships with siblings, 4th House Relationships with parents and so on.

If Venus was Retrograde, or in aspect with Malefics without Reception, then I would have concluded that you/the situation is not what it appears to be, perhaps to the point where you have misrepresented it.

You see that a lot in relationship charts, Mundane Event charts, job charts, Buying/Selling and such. The Querent/Quesited is not who or what they appear to be. Maybe the employer misrepresented the job, maybe the Querent is misrepresenting his education, training or qualifications, or maybe the Querent has misinterpreted the job description, and so either the Querent ends up regretting having taken the job, or maybe the Querent loves the fact that the job wasn't as presented, or maybe the Querent doesn't give a **** one way or another.

Buyers and Sellers can misrepresent themselves, the objects being bought or sold could be misrepresented intentionally, or accidentally. You think buying an hybrid car will save money, but not in reality, that kind of thing.

Natally, it works both ways: a Out-of-Sect significator for the native could be that the Native appears to be a good person, but is really evil, or may appear to be an evil person, but is really a good person. They appear dumb, but are smart; appear smart but are dumb; appear to have many friends, but don't, their friends aren't really what they appear to be, their family (parents) are really what they appear to be. Wealth or the source of wealth is not what it seems.

Involving Mercury or Moon/Mercury, a person who exaggerates, or appears to be emotionally stable but really isn't. 9th House connections, someone who pretends to be religious.

Out-of-Sect Significators can reveal people who are prone to extra-marital affairs, who engage in unusual sexual behaviors, who engage in criminal activity, who are devious, who are hypocrites and whatnot.

It isn't always bad, since sometime you'd actually want a Significator to be Out-of-Sect for something positive, like a Mars that might otherwise be violent, but acts contrary to its nature or misrepresents itself, appearing to be something that it really isn't.

Anyway, Out-of-Sect really isn't about cooperating or helping (that's Reception), but more about performing as is was intended to perform. Think of using a knife as spoon, or a spoon as a fork....that's contrary to their intent and it may or may not be good/positive (or bad/negative).

You can use a spoon instead of a fork to eat rice, and that will work out quite well, but using a fork for a bowl of soup is going to be frustrating and aggravating (or maybe not).

No joke. Initially our "oppnent/s" attempted to file an ex parte motion to simply remove the animals after the police (the officer they hired for civil standby and the ones who came when I called 911 to report the theft) said they had to have a court order. Luckily a friend of a friend reached a lawyer who appeared in our driveway in time to help my husband prevent that from happening, but what did happen was a complaint they filed listing vague allegations (with no evidence offered) of abuse and their "absolute fear" that if the animals were left in our care my husband would kill them. The judge treated it as a custody case and not a property case and refused to hear about ownership. Which is how they ended up signing an agreement, that then then chose to ignore.
Thanks for the link Tsmall, it turns out I have read of that several times, but in the study of Lilly's CA and the Ancients he gleaned wisdom from many times being studious is like those whom study diligently their Bibles yet miss all of the Pro-astrological references. Or those in many Islamic dominated nations who all have a different understanding or different confusion of their Queran(Koran) as evidenced by various Moslem nations where their laws are interpreted differently yet based upon the Koran. It always amazes me how many of the world's best horary authoritys who swear by Lilly occasionally get caught in the quagmire of showing that they missed some things Lilly taught.

And I'm no exception, we all need to be reminded of what Lilly and the Ancients were actually saying or teaching!

We know that Lilly generally gives the conjunction a positive view or verdict, yet that combustion to their Lord, Lucifer will in the finality work against them. I just read the symbology as the cjt was in the beginning helping them. And you affirm that it has.

Max Heindel, of the Rosicrucian Fellowship, wrote from the Germantic astrologers who influenced him that Mars was devil-like, Lucifer. And this sure sounds like your opponents.

Note in CAI, when Lilly talks about the Houses that Lilly says Mars correlates to the 8th, secretive lil devil. And your advocates friends and is it not also his attorneys are represented by the 8th, their 2nd?

That is a plus for them!

But their ruler combust will eventually hurt them badly as Lilly states '...combustion is about the worst that can happen to a planet...'.

As the 8th is investigation for you and occult research which you are using very well.

Note that your lord, Anphrodite is in the 8th; not a great place, ugly in the 8th. Now many ultra trads on forums like skyskript will say the wording Accidental Fall is entirely Moderne, from the Mod Squad, but Lilly in telling us about the houses is showing the correlations between the houses and signs as well as the planets ruling the signs relate also to houses.

I would swear that their lawyer is helping us. Perhaps not intentionally, but. From our first communication with him all the way up to today when both their response to our counter suit as well as supporting documentation (which completely contradicts what is said in the response)...call it gut or whatever you will, but I get the feeling that while he may not actively be helping us, he certainly isn't hurting us. And I swear he's leaving little sign posts along the way for us to pick up on.

I only mention this because we were talking about sect, and planets acting contrary to their nature.
If I understand Lilly correctly their Lawyer is in their 2nd, the horary's 8th. The lawyer isn't helping you, he is spying on you and promoting their cause.

Tsmall you have to remember two things dealing with the attorneys.

1) What is the difference between a Lawyer and a prostitute? Prostitutes will stop fornicating with you when you are dead!

2) What are the simularitys between lawyers and prostitutes? Neither will or can tell one the truth and they are both dedicated to the art of fornicating with others!

Tsmall I know it's tedious, and most horary artists it appears upon this Forum want to minimize the work and as you can see many beginers wish to get caught in the trap of of using only the first aspect to the matter. But this is major, how about walking through Lilly's Point Count method, and I'll join in and help you? Lilly used it because he knew the validity of weighing the different testimonies against each other.

For many on here don't seem to have the dedication of BobZemco, Dr.Farr, and Rafaella. You do have dedication, and every horary we do is like we are tackling a major problem, trouble-shooting; therefore they need us to take our horary seriously.

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

Update after today's hearing. The hearing was scheduled for 10 am which still would have had the ASC in Leo, and based on that I was hoping for at least a 15 minute delay to get the ASC into Virgo. The hearing actually started at 10:28 am. (And I'm glad we weren't the guy who went before us.)

Our motion for contempt was deferred because it wraps into the broader counter suit, our motion to dismiss was denied and the judge said it should have been a motion for summary judgement instead. The best part though is that our motion to add third party impleaders, that is to sue certain members of the board and employees individually as well as sue the corporation was granted. Our motion to continue the trial to allow time for discovery was granted. Their attorney objected to the motion to continue because the really want the ownership issue decided and asked if the suit could be bifurcated (bifurcated? Wow, I thought only astrologers used that word) and the judge told him no way, no how. On the motion to sue parties individually their attorney again objected, because it would mean each would have to get his own lawyer. The judge pretty much told him tough cookies again.

We are court ordered for intensive judicial mediation, and in case no agreement can be reached that way the trial is set for September 12th.

No kidding, that's why we count Signs. I pointed out that Scorpio Moon rule the 10th Sign, and it's not just a subtle difference in the delineation, as you can see.

I know we think in terms of Houses, but the reason the 7th House represents others, is not because it is the 7th House, but rather due to the fact that the 7th Sign is opposite the 1st Sign. When looking at death in a chart, it's especially critical to look at the 8th Sign, and not the 8th House. Bonatti even says to look at the eighth Sign from the 8th Sign, and not the eighth House from the 8th House/Sign. The 9th Sign is travel, etc.

The 11th Sign in this chart -- Leo/Sun -- signifies the mediator/arbitrator.

Re: Will we win our lawsuit?

(Following is not in accordance with standard horary practice and uses whole sign house format)

-querents = 1st house = Libra = Venus
-opponents in the lawsuit = 7th house = Aries = Mars
-querents' Lot of Successful Outcome (ascendant+jupiter-sun) falls @ 15 Scorpio
-opponents' Lot of Successful Outcome (7th "cusp"+jupiter-sun) falls @ 15 Taurus
-law court = 9th house = Gemini = MERCURY
-legal decision (judgement, actions by judge) = 10th house = Cancer = MOON
-mediator (as pointed out by Mr. Zemco) = 11th house = Leo = Sun

Generals:
-Sun (mediator) flows away from opponents significator Mars and away from opponents Lot of Successful Outcome (LOSO)= - for opponents
-Sun is sign conjunct querent's significator Venus, and flows toward querents Lot of Successful Outcome (LOSO) = + for querents
-Mercury flows away from opponents significator Mars and away from opponents LOSO = - for opponents
-Mercury applies to conjunction with querents significator Venus (is in partile applying conjunction with Venus) and also flows toward querents LOSO = + for querents
-the Moon, flows away from and is in applying opposition to the opponents significator Mars and is in partile opposition to the opponents LOSO = - for opponents
-the Moon is posited in querents 2nd house (money, etc), is applying to conjunction with the Lucky Strike North Node IN THE QUERENTS 2ND HOUSE, and the Moon is in applying partile conjunction with the querents LOSO = + for querents

Specifics:
-querents significator Venus is in 9th house (law court house), and is not detrimented by sign; it is dignified by elemental decan (its in the Libra decan), and neutral by duodenary (Sagittarius duodenary): net (moderately) + circumstances for querents significator Venus
-opponents significator Mars is in 8th house (- circumstance by house placement), in a pitted degree (-), conjunct Algol (-), detrimented by sign (Taurus) but dignified by elemental decan (Capricorn where Mars is exalted), neutral by duodenary (Aquarius duodenary), so 4 - and 1 +, net negative circumstances for opponents significator Mars
-law court significator Mercury is dignified by sign, is in the house affinitive to law courts (9th house), is in the Libra elemental decan of Gemini (same sign as querents signifying sign), but is in its detriment in the duodenary of Sagittarius; further, Mercury is in a pitted degree: these are mixed indications vis a vis the law court, with the significator Mercury being in a pit, likely the court will be slow in making a final decision (IF one is needed to be made, by the failure of a mediated settlement)
-judge's action (decision) significator, the Moon is in its Fall in Scorpio, and is further detrimented by being in the elemental decan of Capricorn (neutral in the Aries duodenary of Scorpio); the Moon's situation is helped by being conjunct the Lucky Strike North Node, but this is mitigated by the fact that the NN itself is in a pitted degree (blocked)
Overall the Moon is detrimented here: means (to me) that the judgement might be equivocal, if in fact it goes to a final decision by a judge; it (the judgement, or enforcement of such a judgement) also might be slow (relative to financial return to the querents) since retrograde Saturn is also in this 2nd house of the querents (however, fortunately Saturn itself is in an ELEVATED degree, which is a favorable indication being in the same house as the judges action significator Moon and of the querents LOSO)

The totality of indications suggests to me:
-that the answer to this specific question (will we win our lawsuit) is yes
-the querents are in a significantly more favorable astrological situation than the opponents
-that the querents should push for resolution (if possible) of the matter via the mediator, since they are very strong (astrologically) in regard to mediation
-that if the matter cannot be resolved by mediation, the querents will still win their lawsuit but that there will be delays, that the matter might very well drag on and on before judgement, and that the final judgement, though favorable (or mostly favorable) to the querents, might take substantial time in order to be enforced.

It is a huge difference. And one that I pointed out to the same friend who first read this chart. Cancer is intercepted, and the MC is at 0*Leo. I am not even going to pretend that I know anything about anything, but your comment gives me hope that I'm at least learning something about astrology. It really comes down to what the Moon signifies in this chart. And us newbies can spin on our tails for days trying to figure out which planet is what in the chart, especially in horary. Even in natal, when it comes to that. In this case, we are told 18 ways to Sunday that the Moon is the co-sig of the querent, that it represents the overall situation, and that the aspects the Moon makes are important in trying to understand what will happen next.

But what if the Moon signifies something else? How do you tell?

When I asked this question of my friend, the big problem became..."I wish I knew what the Moon signifies in this chart." My idiotic response was, well, the Moon rules the 10th sign. You know this chart is easier to read in WSH? I thought I had to be doing something wrong.

Lilly was married to Regio houses. Probably because that was all he knew of houses and astrology. Have you (the generic you and not the BobZ or dr. farr you, because it wouldn't surprise me. ) ever tried to construct a table of houses? I haven't, because spatial geometry makes me dizzy. I have a diagram on my cork board to remind me about dexter and sinister...and yes, I relate it to the Cupid Shuffle... The broader question, regardless of the context of this chart becomes this...other than determining angularity, or a planet's energy (cadent, succeedent or angular) what do the house cusps tell us in horary?

These are probably stoopid newb ideas, and I'm perfectly fine with that. If we count signs, we get MC in the 11th of this chart. Sun isn't really relating to anybody, which is sort of the idea of intensive judicial mediation, as opposed to the normal mediation. There are approximately 12 retired judges in our state who do this, and the reason is that they know their shtuff when it comes to the laws. I can't but help think this is in our favor (based on the original evaluation re sect and Stan and Bran...we may be bumbling around, but we are not in the wrong here)

We already know that if Moon is the court system, and then by default the judge, he is detrimented and sort of willing to believe that where there is smoke there is fire. (Moon is in Scorpio, Mars is in Taurus...reception is important?) He hasn't heard or seen any of the supporting evidence we have, and has at least been fair as far as he personally can be when he is looking at this as a matter of allegations of abuse...he even stated yesterday that his greatest concern is for the safety of the animals. I cannot but applaud him for that, since it was ours as well, however some of his other comments left me wondering if even though he attempts to be impartial, he wouldn't be more inclined toward the other side without the ability to have the whole story in front of him....the story that will only come out once it is made clear that what we are dealing with here is a play for sympathy in order for one party (our opponents) to acquire the assets of another party (us) by means of deception.


Two days after this happened, and our world fell apart, we were ready to cave. But...friends we knew, and more importantly friends we didn't know we had started showing up. Someone donated a vehicle so my husband could get from place to place, and promised to keep it maintained, registered and inspected, yet turned over the title to us in case we were worried that it too would be taken away...another long term friend in the industry allowed my husband to work with his animals and his permits to be able to deliver shows he was contracted for...contracts that cancelled with our opponents and went with him based on history alone. The biggest contract held by our adversaries, through the old company and worth 1/2 their yearly revenue cancelled with them and called us specifically to let us know that their lawyers had reviewed everything and found that our trademark was the key to them cancelling, and that it was safe.

Today, we discovered that finally we will be able to move forward with our permits from our state's Fish and Game dept., which means the animals we have procured through donations and investments will after several weeks in stasis be able to come to our facility.

After having the rug pulled out from us..we are in a position to have the upper hand. I'm inclined to push for settlement, and it appears the chart supports this. The question is...do we, the out of sect planets who are doing what is contrary to our nature, push harder? Or, do we do what we have always done when we have been taken advantage of and let sleeping dogs lie?
