Table 7.13: Planetary Positions on December 12, 1393

On the winter solstice day, on December 10, 1393, the Sun was in Sagittarius and there were the following planets which were not far from the Sun:

Mars was in Sagittarius in distance of just only 2o from the Sun, thus it was not visible.

Mercury was in the next to Sagittarius constellation of Scorpio and was well visible. Its brightness was M = +0.5 and, at the moment Mercury was rising in Cairo the submersion of the Sun behind the horizon was 20o, so it still was a deep night.

Venus was in Libra, even further from the Sun than Mercury, almost at the very end of the region associated with the partial horoscope of the winter solstice (see Figure 7.39). At that time Venus was exceptionally bright and spectacular. Its brightness was M = -4.4, which is was very close to its maximal value.

Jupiter and Saturn were far away from Sagittarius, almost at the same locations as on the main date: Saturn was on the boundary between Virgo and Libra, while Jupiter was on the boundary between Aquarius and Pisces.

Let us compare the computations with the situation shown on the partial horoscope of the winter solstice on the Big Esna zodiac. Let us recall that in this partial horoscope, Mars was in Capricorn, Mercury was in Sagittarius or Scorpio, while Venus in Libra. Clearly, our results agree with it. Although, in our solution Mars was in Sagittarius, at that time it was very close to the Sun (only 2o from the Sun), so it was clearly not visible. By the way, here we see an indication that this horoscope was made from observations, not from calculations, sicne in the case of directly observed planetary positions, mistakes related to the positions of invisible planets are easily made.

Consequently, again we can annotate this column with a sign plus, to signal that the required conditions are satisfied.

Column 6: PARTIAL HOROSCOPE OF THE SPRING EQUINOX. In the year of our solution, the spring equinox occured on March 12, 1394 — just two weeks earlier than the date indicated by the main horoscope (see Appendix 3). During that time all the planets, with the only exceptions of the Moon and Mercury, couldn't move too far from their locations on the main date. Nevertheless, at that time Mercury was in the process of making a loop and from February 5 till April 19, 1394, so it was staying all the time inside Pisces. Consequently, the positions of all the planets, except the Moon, were very close to their locations on the main date. In this case, as we already pointed it out, the partial horoscope of the spring equinox was on the Egyptian zodiacs usually left empty, or almost empty. However, it is quite possible that in the case of the Big Esna zodiac, this partial horoscope is represented by the doubles of the planetary symbols, what we already discussed earlier. In any case, the partial horoscope of the spring equinox, as it is just a repetition of the main horoscope, cannot provide us with additional information which could be essential for the elimination of inadmissible solutions. Of course all preliminary solutions satisfying the main horoscope, would also satisfy the requirements obtained from this partial horoscope.

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.
