For those of us that are new here and studying.

There are a lot of fantastic threads on this forum. Unfortunately, many links from older posts are dead. For example I am reading a thread in the Traditional (& Ancient) Techniques section on Combustion. On page 5 there is a post by Andrew:

I've posted this link before but I'll do so again since it contains some material that might be of help:

The first footnote to the article states:

Some authors, particularly the Arabs, present slightly different definitions of these concepts: for most of them the planet is combustion when it is less than 12 from the Sun; it is said to be coming under the Sun's beams when it is less than 15 and to be cazimi when in the same zodiacal degree as the Sun. Some of these older authorities also seem to use the term under the Sun's beams as equivalent to combustion.

Their website seems to be down at the moment but their own Table of Planetary Attributes favors the list of orbs provided by al-Biruni, even though they illustrate combustion as at 830' rather than 730'. This may explain the footnote referenced above.


I really wanted to see the PDF he linked to but the site is gone. I was able to get to it and here is how:

First I copied the link by either highlighting and rt clicking then choose copy or highlight and press Ctrl+C. Next I opened a new tab and navigated to . Once there insert your copied URL. You will see they had hits in 2012 and 2009. The links aren't there in 2012 but in 2009 it is still there. Once there you click on the year (with black hits) then the calendar date below (highlighted with blue circles).

Many times you may have to go back several years to find the hit that has the info saved.

I happen to be going backwards through specific sections of the forum and this has found some valuable info that appears to be lost. Hope that helps.
