Is Napoleon's chart right?

One of Siderealists' favorite examples, from Fagan's earliest writings on the subject, is the horoscope of Napoleon Bonaparte. Fagan loved not only that he was a Leo but that - despite weeks difference in the birth dates - his Sun was in the degree as Alexander the Great's Sun. An article from the m...

Re: Excellent Natal Midpoint Rules, by Robert Hand

BTW, you can learn to interpret these from the planet-pair principles here.

Saturday, July 21

Today's transits are as follows: t Sun conj. r Jupiter-Uranus t Venus ssq. r Uranus (headed for Jupiter) So the basic feel should be Sun & Venus transiting Jupiter and Uranus.

Re: Excellent Natal Midpoint Rules, by Robert Hand

For comparison to what is more easily viewable as aspects in my chart, here are the direct midpoint structures within 1° in my chart. (Structures with a personal point involved are in bold.) I don't think anything here comes up to the standard of the closest aspects in my chart except maybe Mo = Su/...

Re: Excellent Natal Midpoint Rules, by Robert Hand

FWIW, I agree with the spirit of all of this, and disagree quite sharply with some of it, especially the first point below. 1. I see no difference between direct and indirect midpoints but draw the line one level lower, at squares to midpoints. To be clear, "direct midpoint contact" means conjunctio...

Re: Transits to progressed planets

Are transits to progressed planets valid? And if so, how would you interpret them? I think thisisall in that thread, but to address it afresh: Technically all progressed planets and points are subject to transit. The question is, how useful are these individual transits? In practice, anymore I moni...

Aspects

Ecliptical aspects (out to Saturn-Pluto) were counted for conjunctions and oppositions within 4° and squares, trines, and sextiles within 3°. The conjunctions, oppositions, and squares were totaled in one count, and the trines and sextiles added to them for a second count. (Additionally, octiles - s...

Plnetary Angularity

Planets were grouped according to three "grounds" in the traditional way - 15° lunes centered on the angular, succedent, and cadent cusps designated Foreground, Middleground, and Background respectively. I think this needs to be redone. The distribution, as I was compiling it, suggested to me that a...

The most common Sun-signs (adjusted for the relative times Sun spends in each constellation in the course of its orbit) were Sagittarius and Aries. Neither fell...

A Study of Murderers

In the February 1957 issue of American Astrology, under the title "Murder Wil Out!" Donald A. Bradley (writing as "Garth Allen") provided a statistical examination of the horoscopes of 42 murderers. It is unclear where Bradley gathered his data, though (given the small number and other consideration...

Re: A musical partnership with interesting synastry -- analysis

You've given some wonderful descriptions of pieces of this that should help anyone who reads this thoughtfully. The Virgo pile-ups are an interesting similarity with its own dynamic. What I first noticed, though, is that you each have Pluto conjunct the other's Sun. There is a tendency for you to ea...

And then there is Charles Schumer. I really don't think Chuck plans to run - if anything, he'll throw his strength behind Gillbrand (or, of course, whoever gets the nom), but worth checking: Scorpio Sun keeps him in the running but, if my theory about that Mars-Jupiter-Uranus is correct, he's out o...

Re: Vladimir Putin

Thanks, I was just looking at this last night, especially the synastry with Trump. The natal is fascinating, especially the Sun-sign and angular planets; but it's the synastry that held my attention. Primarily we have Putin's Saturn and Uranus on Trump's Jupiter. There's no way Trump will come out a...

Re: 2021 Inauguration

Never heard of him, but, hey, let's check. He's a Sag/Cap, so doesn't make the sign cut (unless Ryan is president at the time). He does have an interesting cluster in mid-Capricorn, but nothing that's in orb unless his Moon happens to be right in that degree.

That was one of my theories I'd forgotten. It would also explain Romney's ability to run for Prez so soon after being elected to the Senate and not have Utah feel betrayed. Nancy BTW has nothing in these degrees. But if Ryan became president, the rules would change on successor's luminary signs. We'...

Re: 2021 Inauguration

Ah, wait! (Interesting, don't know how realistic.) Mitt Romney (who passes the sign test) has MC 12°48' Capricorn! Transiting Jupiter is 28' from his natal MC at inauguration. Uranus 1°00' square his MC, and Saturn is opposite his natal Saturn 0°30', often a destiny moment. And, of course, his Scorp...

John Kasich has Mars at that degree: At noon on his birth date, Mars was 11°59' Libra. He doesn't pass the luminary sign test unless Pence is president (he's Aries-Sagittarius). Rubio has nothing there, but easily passes the luminary test. Bloomberg has nothing there. Ditto Julian Castro, Tim Kaine,...
