Re: Is there a Trikona curve

Mike, you have a pile of planets concentrated near your 5th cusp. Uranus and Neptune are closest, Saturn and Sun a little wider. What are your thoughts on this theory? Hmm... Do I trust myself more/most when acting from a Uranian frame of mind - future-thinking, discarding existing structure and re...

Hi Zig, I have a Macbook and use a virtual machine to run Solar Fire in a virtual Windows 10 instance.

Minor planet body names and astrological validity

I have 2 questions about the relationship of body names to their observed astrological effects. They probably don't have clear answers, but I'm very curious to know what everyone's thoughts are. 1. For minor planets/asteroids/etc that are discovered or named as time goes on - what does the name chos...

Re: Mike's 2018 SSR

I'm adding a quick retrospective/summary to this. The Pluto foreground was at least reflected clearly in reaching an important spiritual goal that I've aimed at for many years, and the corresponding changes in my psyche. That one was an easy enough hit by itself. The Venus was quite noticeable as we...

Re: Simultaneous harsh SLR and lovely KLR

My Demi-SLR begins tomorrow night, and is dominated by a transit by Jupiter to natal Jupiter-Uranus, all on angles, with natal Moon/Saturn/Neptune more widely foreground - very similar to the KLR. I expect to not be able to discern between them after today. For the past 2 weeks, the SLR has easily d...

Simultaneous harsh SLR and lovely KLR

I've always wondered how strongly to weigh the SLR and KLR against each other. The next 2 weeks or so will provide an unusually good opportunity to test this. (I say 2 weeks, because the demi-SLR coming up has much in common with the KLR and it'll be harder to distinguish them.) Dec 20th SLR: t. Plu...

Re: Updates on my astrology app...

Are they normalized to the same framework?

Don't do the mundoscope as a "zodiac analog." I agree completely - I have that as a future feature. 2. The second is simple in concept, but harder to explain if you don't have a picture in your head.... I think I can picture this, and had some ideas like that as well. I do want to mention, though, ...

Thanks for the encouragement, all. Jim, while you’re right that this is still in a very feature-sparse state, I’m curious what you’re thinking.

I agree that Jim's summary is spot on, particularly these two: Sharp humor. Willing to be outlandish. Loves to party.

I should also mention, now that I think about it, that I've gotten mid-grade nightmares for the last 2 nights (so, beginning the night before the QSLR). In the last one, an ex-girlfriend (who I loved deeply) died - pretty fitting for Saturn-Neptune. Maybe relevant. Given that I've also been watching...

Another really accurate quarti-lunar

I don't know why it feels like this, but I've been watching my quarti-lunars lately, and it feels like they've all been absolute dead ringers every time, even more obviously than the main SLR or demi. My theory is that they're just narrower and more focused, almost like quick-but-punchy transits (co...

Now mostly out from under the main SLR and into the demi for this period, which is a welcome change.

I don’t think so. I was experiencing that for like 2 weeks leading up to it, and that’s also just a normal part of my psyche (moon-saturn-Neptune).

Quotidian "Equatorial Ascendant" in Longitude

Hey all, Every once in awhile, I see someone make a reference to "Ep/Wp" in a quotidian context, and it's confusing me. So I have some questions: 1. We measure quotidian angle contacts purely in longitude, right? 2. By "Ep/Wp" in this context, are astrologers referring to the "equatorial ascendant/d...
