Angularity: For planets within 10 degrees of horizon or meridian: cos(6*PV distance from angle) For planets in ecliptic square within 2 degrees to horizon or meridian: cos(30*longitude distance) For planets ...

Sympathy, compassion, empathy (or emotional drama, insecurity, easily hooked, betrayed). Lives in own reality, te...

Re: A Fagan Observation With a Successful Predictive Method for SLR’s.

I would go Jim one better, the "psychological changes" are ultimately the only things that matter, the only things that actually show in a chart. External events tend to generate bigger psychological changes than purely internal ones, particularly big external events. But this is not always true, co...

Re: Inside-Other wheel

Also useful for those who use the "A's planets in B's cusps" tradition method of synastry, though I rather prefer Jim's "B's planets as transits to A's chart."

Exaltation of Mercury

Mercury both ruling and exalted in Virgo is a bit of an interpretive puzzle to me. Other exaltation are easy to understand: for example, Capricorn is similar to Mars as well as Saturn, Cancer is anti-Mars as well as well as anti-Saturn. Hypothetically, Virgo should be more (twice?) as Mercury as Gem...

Re: New love

Good news now. Mary hasn't been able to stop feeling what she's feeling, so we are back together and going in the same direction at a slower pace and more discreetly. After lots of prayer, she decided God was more OK with us than the pastor is. I knew that up front but I respect her conscience and d...

Re: Resurrecting Horary

I''m wondering if there isn't something that could be be done to have ritual in calculating a horoscope in the computer age something more interactive than just clicking a button and having the horoscope of the moment appear on screen. I need to think about this.

Re: Resurrecting Horary

I've been playing around with horary astromancy a la sidereal, and I'm kinda impressed. Especially because I have no real gift for divination. For example. I can read tarot cards mechanically, but the cards never "speak" to me. Sometimes a chart of the moment does.

I will give it some thought and see what I can come up with after studying some. I'll send Jim something for vetting if I come up with something that pleases me. Maybe starting my research with the inside-outside theory of solunars.

I absolutely love the summaries. They seem to capture the essence of each aspect. I might use these in some software for my personal use.

Re: New love

Bad news to report. Mary spoke to the pastor about us and he informed her that it is adultery for her to have love feelings for me and vice versa until my divorce is final. Now his opinion doesn't mean squat to me, but it does to her. So we are split up for the duration. She say I'm welcome to pursu...
