Hello fellows astrologers.Since some years,ancient astrology has attracted the interest of a larger audience,mainly because of efforts of Project Hindsight.One important astrologer of hellenistic times,Dorotheus of Sidon,talks about aspects between planets in way unknown to modern astrology.According to Dorotheus,(and he represents the mainstream of greek astrology),aspects between planets only exist when both planets are IN THE SAME DECLINATION ! look to what he wrote:"look at the casting of rays in latitude also because sometimes a planet is aspecting from opposition,and if you calculed it in latitude and if you find one planet in south,the other in the North,then THIS IS NOT IN OPPOSITION,AND ALSO DOES NOT CAST ITS RAYS, ...(Carmen Astrologicum,book 3-1,pág 241 -Astrology classics publisher-2005).
Well my friends,i would like to hear your opinion about it.
All the best
Gerson

Maybe i misundestood Dorotheus,but i'm eager to understanding - i look to astrology allways with a" novice eye"...
A fellow astrologer,in another forum noted that planets in opposition,depending of his Latitude and the Latitude of the location,one rise in different time that the other Set,maybe this is what Dorotheus is talking.
All the best
