Re: I asked a coworker out.

Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, and drank the Kool-Aid. And I've never been happier. This is exactly how I started out with my beloved Terry (in essence, details differ.) Boiled down to essentials, I wanted her very early on, and she wanted me just as much but struggled with whether she w...

Re: Controlling Behavior

I think Pluto is partly on this list--Pluto's children can some times be quite controlling as a pre-emptive strike against feeling controlled by others.

Re: Ptolemaic Aspets - toward a unified theory

Jim, I can't quite grasp the formula you are using. Are you using an Excel spreadsheet to calculate? If you could share it, so I can understand the formula you are currently using, I think I can tweak it to give more reasonable conjunction/opposition orbs.

Re: Ptolemaic Aspets - toward a unified theory

My personal theory of "why" these aspects. Let's assume aspects are always measured on the shorter arc, so only separations of 0 to 180 degrees need be considered. For the first harmonic we get 0/1 = 0 degrees for the conjunction, which is unique, starting our set of Ptolemaic aspects. For the secon...

A good example of the point that double rims have a tendency of causing trouble wherever they go

(Not that I'm not a bit of trouble myself, having a Sun in Aries)
Not always imagine an otherwise identical chart as cool's, with Venus and Mars switched. Now how does Aries/Pluto manifest?

It's what running the site and encouraging it to flourish requires. I get that pretty well. I've had to deal with a similar (though less extreme) individual in my Tuesday bible study. Of course I'm religiously obligated to do the patience and long-suffering thing. You chose it, my hat is off to you.

My God, by his chart he virtually has to confront everybody. New Moon Aries angular, opposite Pluto and sextile Mars, all those aspects within two degrees. Not that he's incapable of civil discourse, he just has to work harder to control his anger than some of us. The Jupiter sextile to his luminari...

Re: Return charts for other planets

There is also a potential issue for planetary returns not applicable to solunars. This is the question of the "triple transit." For comparison consider that a lunar orbital period is 27 1/3 days approximately, so throughout our live we have one lunar return each 27-28 days without exception. Similar...

I believe this prediction is wrong, though the astrology seem right.

So unless...

Re: U.S. President Administration charts

Our posts crossed, Jim. I'm leaning toward your view, with the reservation that Washington's first term legally began March 4, 1789 at noon, which produced a very inauspicious chart as you indicated.

To my mind, static aspects very often do result in "action" but the action is often confined to the native's own mind/psyche/soul or whatever, without a particular pressure to manifest in actions in the external world. Whereas dynamic aspects tend to manifest in the external world as well. Simplisti...
