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.

Re: Aspect Summaries

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.

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...

Alea iacta est . 5/9/2018 10:30 PM here in Calimesa, CA. After Mary and I had a long forthright discussion of our future, I declared my intention to ask her to marry me after my divorce is final. She expressed her delight at the the prospect of being courted not just chased during that time. And sa...

I Just realized (wondering why it tool me so long) that one common denominator of all those types of relationships traditionally ascribed to the 7th house is that they are all (at least in potential, and at their best) of the nature of I-Thou relationships, as articulated by Martin Buber and cited ...

For example, look at Gemini-Virgo. Both Spokes, both ruled by Mercury. Yet they aren't all that hard to ...

Re: Midpoint compilation

I' ve been doing some thinking about this and have come to some conclusions. When we measure midpoints in PV longitude, if say SU/MO=AS, then SU/MO=MC always, to the same orb, since AS and MC are always exactly 90 degrees apart in PV longitude. Likewise if SU/AS=MO, then SU/MC=MO always. If this is ...

Re: My House Model: An Overview

I just had an a-ha moment reading Jim's next-to-last post. Saturn seventh as story explains my relationship history, and also why this Pisces/Aries has always felt more Saturnine in general than angularity and aspects alone explain--and particularly so in one-on-one relationships. Not always in a ne...

Re: My House Model: An Overview

I also like that this model is entirely divorced from sign/house correspondences, which can tempt one into all sorts of errors. After studying the question, the ASC= Libra scheme popular among siderealists who use houses is better than ASC=Aries nearly universal among tropicalists, but neither quite...

Re: My House Model: An Overview

I have a strong intuition you are on the right track with this model. Similar to Rob Hand in Horoscope Symbols , but better worked out and more coherent when you are through. IMHO, Angularity > Aspects/Midpoints > Signs > Houses, but houses are worth interpreting in a nativity, I wouldn't use them f...

Re: Midpoint compilation

Thanks for the detailed reply Jim. My focus has always been on natal astrology and SSR/SLR. So I'll leave aside all midpoints involving the EP. I will also ignore A/M and any other midpoint involving 2 angles. Those combinations involving one angle will be calculated in PV long. I have some software...

It's been just a week since my first post to this thread. Mary and I have grown measurably closer. I have a feeling of emotional intimacy that I've never felt before. Not in twenty years of marriage, not ever. I'll put on my Christian hat and call it a miracle.

The basic formula is A/B=C where A, B and C are points in the chart, / represents the midpoint between and = is a 0-45-90-135-180 aspect between C and the midpoint between A and B. The maximum orb is +- 1 degree. 0-90-180 as...
