I've never heard of it, but I agree that "mundane" suggests it's somehow based on ascensional degrees or something related. The longitiude of your birth chart or some examples from a publicl ...

My focus is on Western astrology (traditional and modern), but from what I've seen and heard nothing definitive on Nadi astrology is available in English. I've seen a few books available, but none of ...

Honestly, for Natal I tend to use the Fourth for the parents in general and use the lots and natural rulers to pick up on the specifics for each parent. The Tenth House/mother connection didn't really ...

Forum: Traditional (& Ancient) Techniques   Posted: Sat Jan 30, 2016 7:54 pm   Subject: Lot of Marriage-Paulus or Valens?
Just to add a little more confusion to this mix, Dorotheus (alone, as far as I can tell) reverses the Saturn-Venus marriage lots by night, a practice which Ben Dykes advocates in his audio lecture on ...

Far from a dumb question, it's quite a matter of debate. As far as I know the general medieval practice is to use the birthplace; one dissenter I know was Jean-Baptiste Morin, whose astrological pract ...

As a social worker by education with an emphasis in psychology I am very, very reluctant to casually use diagnostic terms. That being said, the Sun, Venus and Mars are precisely the planets I'd expect ...

An offer I couldn't refuse! So far I'm very impressed at the depth and breadth of options. Are you interested in user feedback? The Hellenistic options are darned near perfect as far as I can tell, bu ...
