Feral moon:-

When moon does not make any Ptolemaic aspect (conjunction, opposition, square, trine or sextile) with any of the traditional planets (sun, mercury, venus, mars, jupiter or saturn) from the moment she enters a sign until she leaves the sign.

Supposedly GHASTLY by ancient astrologers!

Hi All,

This would be an interesting topic to research. Having just finished my complete translation of Bonatti's Liber Astronomiae the other week, I'll tell you what I found out about what ferality in general means for Bonatti.

To be "feral" means to be “wild” in the sense that undomesticated animals are; in human terms, it means someone who does not have many social connections and lacks the relative refinement and skills that come with being around other people. Bonatti equates this with being “uncivilized” (silvestris) and “wild” (agrestis). Therefore for a planet to be feral means that it is in some sense an outcast or unconnected to other planets. This happens in two ways:

1. A planet is feral as long as it is both the only planet in a sign, and unaspected. This definition is an altered from of al-Qabisi’s (aka Alchabitius's) definition, that a planet is “wild” when it is “in a sign and no other planet aspects its sign.” In this case, al-Qabisi retains a whole-sign aspect emphasis.

2. Or, a planet is feral when it is in the seventh sign from its own domicile. This is because it is in its detriment, thrown out as it were from its normal dwelling.

As a further detail, Bonatti says the Moon is “wild” or “feral” when she is “void in course and is in a place in which she has no dignity.” In this case, what Bonatti must have thought that since the Moon is the general significatrix for every matter whatever, and has influence over the earth beyond other planets, that she would have to be in an especially unconnected place in order to have the effect of a feral planet. This is likely why he says that it does not harm the Moon much to be void in course in Cancer or Taurus, since she has domicile and exalted rulership there. For the Moon to be feral, she must be in the extra condition that she has no dignity in the place in which she is.

Bonatti does not use the concept of ferality very much, but the few examples he gives come directly from the basic concept: when a significator is "uncivilized," it will impede – but will not prevent – the desired matter; and when the rising sign and the Lord of the Ascendant are in semi-feral or feral signs, the native himself will be feral (this is the case in my own chart, and I love being alone). Likewise, when the Lord of a certain Part (signifying the native’s work and his achievement) is void of course, the native will be feral and solitary. This last point shows the link in Bonatti’s mind between being void of course and being feral.

In my future translations of al-Kindi, etc, etc, I hope to have more information.

Of course, what counts in dealing with a feral Moon -- as with any planet in any condition -- is timing, timing, timing. Are we dealing with a mundane chart? A horary question? An election? A nativity? We must relate planetary movement to a particular chart.

I have lots of files, but offhand (without looking at any) I can't remember any feral Moons. Anyone have a chart?

Hello Ben,

I apologise for departing from the theme of your thread but the following comment by you seems quite momentous!

Having just finished my complete translation of Bonatti's Liber Astronomiae the other week

Wow! So you have just produced the first complete translation of Bonatti's work in English! Congratulations!

This news deserves a bit more of a fanfare! When do you think your translation might be available to the wider astrological world? Will it be published or available as a download from your website?
