Table 7.2: Planetary Positions in the Period September 13-15, 1167

Table 7.2: Planetary Positions in the Period September 13-15, 1167

On the days of the autumn equinox, on the evening sky one could observe very bright Venus and no other planets around. On September 17, the New Moon appeared beside Venus. Before dawn there were no visible planets near the horizon. Mars and Mercury were too close to the Sun to be visible. This situation matches perfectly the information from the partial horoscope of the autumn equinox, i.e. on that date Venus and Moon were visible not very far from the Sun, which was in Virgo, Mercury wasn't visible, and there were no other visible planets in proximity of Virgo.

In conclusion, we again should annotate the third column with the sign plus to indicated that all the conditions specified on the partial horoscope of the autumn equinox are satisfied by the solution.

Column 4: PARTIAL HOROSCOPE OF THE WINTER SOLSTICE. In the year associated with the solution the winter solstice took place on December 11-12, 1167 (see Appendix 3). We have to take into account that in old times the exact day of the winter solstice was the most probably determined with some error. By the same reasons as before, we admit a six days error margin and consider the winter solstice days to be from December 5 to December 18, 1167.

To give an idea about the planetary positions around the Sun during the winter solstice period, we choose two dates, for example December 14-15, 1167, and list their longitudes in Table 7.3.

Figure 7.17: A drawing showing planets in the proximity of the Sun on September 17, 1167 — the day of appearing of the New Moon following the autumn equinox. The sky under the horizon is marked in blue. GMT stands for the Greenwich Mean Time.

The Illustrated Key To The Tarot

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
