817 Validation of Solutions According to the Partial Horoscope of the Summer Solstice

Let us show the exact planetary locations on the ecliptic J2000 for the summer solstice days on June 12, 1268, and on June 12, 1267. The first of these dates, should be considered in the case the beginning of the year was assumed to take place in September or January, while the another one is according to the convention that the beginning of the year was in March or June.

Let us analyze the first date: June 12, 1268. In Table 8.6, we present for this date the positions of the planets on the ecliptic J2000 using degrees, as well as, the coordinates on the constellation scale (see section 6.10). In addition, for each of the listed planets we indicate the corresponding zodiacal constellation. Just by looking at these numbers, we can already say that our astronomical solution fits quite well the partial horoscope of the summer solstice on the Lower zodiac. On the summer solstice day, all the planets gathered indeed around the Sun in Gemini. Nevertheless, this correspondence with the partial horoscope is not perfect. The planetary configuration on that day was clearly different than the one depicted on the partial horoscope of the summer solstice on the Lower zodiac. Recall that on the Lower zodiac, there were three planets shown on one side of the Sun, while there were two more on the other side. But, on the June 12, 1268, there were four planets on the one side of the Sun (without counting the Moon) and only one — Mars, on the other side. It is clear that these two configurations are different, so it is hard to consider them as matching.

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.
