Re: Sexuality; Sexual Experiences; Tastes

Yesterday, as part of our preparation for our upcoming marriage Terry and I had a very explicit and detailed discussion about sex. Turns out she loves receiving oral and is very much looking forward to the ministration of a passionate and creative man--she's never had both at once :) . She very much...

Re: Possible rationale why cardinal 0 aries-cancer-libra-capricorn solar and lunar ingresses are valid

The Babylonians knew the boundaries of the zodiac to a good accuracy, but occasionally made errors in calculating the equinox of up to five days = five degrees. Clearly, they didn't think it was that important or they would have learned how to calculate the equinox better. The Greeks had no trouble ...

Re: Possible rationale why cardinal 0 aries-cancer-libra-capricorn solar and lunar ingresses are valid

I can understand Jim perfectly. Uncle Aries is just wrong: a moment in 221 AD does not have unique significance for 26000 or even 13000 years, therefor cannot prove anything. If I recall correctly, it was Bradley who was intrigued by the possibility of 0 Capricorn being the sidereal longitude of the...

Re: Question About Progressions

That's about what I thought. But another absurd thought comes to mind. Let's say if your extreme example of "year for a day" were validated, it might help investigate slow moving points. For example Sedna, whose sidereal year is ~12,000 earth years takes ~32 years to progress around the zodiac at th...

Question About Progressions

Primaries, secondaries, tertiaries, minor progressions, Q1, Q2, PSSR..., not to mention the converse versions of all of the above. All of them come down to a ratio based on the specific progression, for example 0.0027378030919862 for Q2 ( day for a year) or 0.0366009950851544 for tertiaries (day for...

Re: Feb 3 2019 Super Bowl, app end of game 10:45 PM EST

Well we know the teams. Rams vs. Patriots, both won in overtime which is an NFL first. The Ram's win was tarnished by the notorious non-call with 1:45 left. A great comeback from being down 13-0 at one point. Patriots vs.Chiefs was a real nail-biter. Astrological explanations? Picks for the Super Bo...

A charity shag is pretty good when you're at a brothel.
Not really, there is $ involved. A commercial transaction, neither love nor charity. Though the customer may choose to tell himself lies. I know, I've done it.

Re: Sexuality; Sexual Experiences; Tastes

I've tried almost everything, with both genders.

That said, I do have my ...

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.

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.

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...
