Mars-Uranus square

Today is the exact Mars-Uranus square. From a mundane point of view, it's important worldwide because it's right on Cansolar Moon (which was exactly square Uranus in the Cansolar). Personally, though, it's on my SSR Ascendant relocated to my home, 10°39' Aries. (The square is exact at 10°31' Aries.)...

Re: 2020 Stock Market Crash

Re: Aspects in Mundo

For this kind of aspect, yes. (I can have a theoretical reason to allow 2° but in practice it doesn't appear to work.) Remember, also, that I'm not saying this is valid. I'm saying that there are some really interesting examples of distinguishing a new location, which leads one to think that these a...

With the Janus software it gives sidereal times with Solar fire it reads like a normal clock? I think Ken said 4 minutes was equivalent to one degree? I have limited aspects in mundo to 2 degrees.

Re: Aspects in Mundo

My copy of Ken's book is in storage, so I can't consult it at the moment. Can you remind me... by "mundane aspects" was he talking about parans (which, in any case, I know Ken is a big fan of) or was he talking about aspects in the prime vertical?

It sounds like a beautiful occasion, but I'd be stretched to call it a beautiful chart. With Saturn exactly at Midheaven conjunct Neptune and trine Venus and Jupiter, it seems, instead, to anticipate the "trail of tears" that marked indigenous Americans' plight in the decades ahead. It is a fascinat...

Re: New timing on Panic of 1893

I think your intuition on 8:30 might be right (though I can't use it without confirmation). I do know that 14 years later, in 1907, the stock exchange closed at 3 PM instead of today's 4 PM. (This emerged from the story of JP Morgan's temporary last-minute save of the market in the 1907 panic.) If i...
