FWIW, pertaining to Clay’s quoted observation in this thread from an AAM article where Clay writes:
I’ve found that partile transits from outer planets to tertiary outer planets are powerful “triggers” for the exact timing of events.
If this is true, it's a real finding. It's certainly the last
thing I've ever looked at in terts and, overall, when tallying "hits" for major events, I've never been impressed with transits to terts at all.
But it's easy enough to test, so I might as well take an hour or so and do it now. My current favorite test set is a collection of 34 charts of humans directly involved in the mundane
events catalogued in SMA.
For example, where SMA
studied the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations, the Moon landing, and the Bush v. Gore decision, my test set looks at the Lincoln, Kennedy, Armstrong, Bush, and Gore charts for the same events. (I like this set especially because the events were selected for entirely different reasons, independent of looking at the individual charts, so most sources of bias are removed; and also because the event timings are well-documented and we have accurate charts for nearly everybody.)
So, here goes... To match Clay's methods as best I understand them, I will use Solar Fire set on Q1 formulae to calculate "true" (not "mean") terts (though there isn't that
much difference, especially for outer planets), looking only at transits of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto to tertiary placements of the same five planets. I'll map all conjunctions, oppositions, and squares within 1°, though it seems Clay expects much tighter orbs than that (since he said this gives exact
timing of events, something hard to do for mathematical reasons with only outer planet transits. (I'll mark in blue those that I consider clean hits with adequately accurate planet symbolism, and in red if I think it seriously contrary to correct planet symbolism.)
