But when they operate it seems clear that natal planets are important in every technique - it's the one set you never get rid of.
Wow, even for KLRs?
Using them in that context didn't occur to me.

Natal planets in Anlunars

Hi y'all,

Is it recommended to check the natal planets relative to Anlunar return angles, or do we only check transiting + solar planets?
If I had to guess, I would guess only solar planets, but I'd rather ask.

Re: Very Nasty Transits

I experienced both together last year - the Saturn conjunction to Sun peaked at the very end of 2017, and was captured partile in my SSR. Pluto was also conjunct my Mercury on and off all year, and is currently locked into my current SSR as well. I found the Pluto transit to Mercury to help dramatic...

Re: Peak Mercury

Peak Mercury Got my new band name. Thanks! I am a little bit fidgety. Not pronounced. I actually feel pretty calm. I expected to be talkative, but I'm not. In fact, I feel conspicuously quiet. Like I'm more interested in listening. I just have this weird sensation like I don't have much to add. Peo...

Re: Connection through signs due to anti-thesis

Do or can anti-thesis(es) of our charts drive us to feel closer to signs that are activated [luminary, Mars, or stellium] and share a common anti-thesis? If so is it even worth noting? I think of this stuff in terms of presence/absence, which seems like a similar concept. For example, with Venus ba...

Re: Casting a Quotidian

Do angle progressions in SA in longitude (and contacts to them, etc) mean anything when contacting natal/progressed planets, or do you recommend we use only mean quotidian to determine natal/progressed planetary contacts to "progressed angles?" I didn't really pay consistent attention day to day and...

Planets surprisingly far from MC in mundo

Hi y'all, I cooked up my upcoming SLR on 12/29 in Solar Fire (Hackensack, NJ), and one look at the ecliptical view was kind of scary - Saturn and Pluto both look about 4*-5* from MC, on opposite sides. Of course, I looked at the mundoscope, and was shocked to discover that they're both just about 10...

Re: Astrology Software

I think iPhemeris is probably the best available app for Mac. It has really cool transit calendars that I do still use for quick-and-broad looks at large blocks of time in addition to generally being a good app. It doesn't do mundoscopes, of course so you'll still need outside help for that. I also ...

In the final days now of this SSR before it gives way to the next one... Let's take a look back and see how things all played out. The "deep, powerful feelings" of r. Venus and t.

Admitting that there may be a level at which this is so, I think you will find that your experience of your life is better mapped if you take this not to be true.
For just progs, or transits as well? (I believe you mean the latter)

Progs, and cyclical passes of a planet to natal

Hi all, What I've generally heard about transits to natal planets is that, if there are multiple passes, the transit is effectively considered "live" from the time it enters 1* orb the first time to the time it leaves 1* orb the final time. Does this apply to secondary progressions as well? If so, I...
