Jupiter

As we leave Mars behind and beam in on Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, we must pass through the asteroid belt which occupies 150,000,000 miles of space. The belt has no known yet astrological influence on us hence it is mainly study for astronomers. As we approach the mammoth orb two striking phenomena catch the eye. A great red spot, one of the most curious objects of the entire solar system, stands out like a blemish on the southern hemisphere. Its elliptical area, seeming to...

Moon In Virgo

The influence of Virgo is related to matters concerning employment, health, self-reliance and concern for detail. The Moon indicates that from a personal standpoint the native's normal approach to people and affairs is realistic and in some respects analytical in nature. It is now that your client will better understand the relationship between employer and employee. Here he will also develop keen insight into the necessity of maintaining an efficient diet surrounded with daily exercise for his...

Mars In Capricorn

This position indicates that the native will have the capacity to make headway and progress in life and not let obstruction, interference, or jealousy of others prevent him from doing so. However he should be cautioned that there will be times when his zeal will be misunderstood and a certain amount of unpleasantness will be created by other people. Since Mars is exalted in Capricorn the position is very good and will benefit the native. The native is capable of great responsibility and...

Consideration Of Ascendant Sign

We must interpret the following influence when estimating the scope of the Ascendant Sign (Lesson 17, Diagram III.) 3. Planets within the Ascendant and their Aspects Our Gemini Sun and Libra Moon has Leo in the Ascendant position. Referring to Lesson Seven, Houses of the Zodiac, on p. 9, we find that the First House governs the general disposition or temperment of a person. In other words, the Ascendant sign reveals the personality of our client. Think of Leo and what the sign encompasses, and...

The Element Of

The three air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Air Signs are similar to air because they generate the ability of circulation. They create an aura of relaxation when around people and situations. The Air Signs are most naturally associated with the channels of communication, thought, adaptability, and the gift of making and sustaining relationships with ease. This triplicity has its beginning in Gemini and it characterizes the influence of other people on the native. The keyword of the Air...

Moon In Capricorn

The characteristics of ambition, honor and public advancement are conferred by the sign influence of Capricorn. The Moon, in this sign, signifies steadfastness and reliability. The conscience is awakened and there is a strong moral purpose. The Moon is in its detriment here and its influence has harmful tendencies. If this position of the Moon is well aspected assure your client that he may be very popular as a prominent and leading citizen, however, if badly aspected, warn him that the...

Sun In

This position of Sun gives the native an instinctive sense of power, self-confidence and optimism. Consequently, there is an inherent need for exercising tolerance and for maintaining patience with others when they seem to falter or fail. He has a strong will with much idealism and considerable dignity but he will need to cultivate a capacity to give and take evenly with others and preserve a sense of proportion. The exercising of simple kindness and friendliness rather than of ostentatious...

History Of The Heavens

As the shepherds of old watched the starry arch of the night wheel majestically overhead, they took great comfort in the apparent constancy of the heavens. Save for an occasional meteor whose brilliant trail flashed across the void of space each heavenly lamp stayed firmly fixed in its niche. But as ancient astronomers mapped the skies they found five stars that were strangely different. Most stars always held the same position in the same constellation, they appeared to be fixed in place....

Moon In Gemini

The sign Gemini indicates a bright mental outlook and a sense of emotional adaptability. The Moon in this sign will make the whole outlook of the mind seem brighter. The native will demonstrate good insight in decisions on matters dealing with the family or travel. The Moon here signifies considerable creative energy. There will be a peculiar blending of personal independence with a strong degree of sympathy for others. The native will dislike routine yet he will have an uncanny skill to work...

Venus In Sagittarius

The native is very idealistic especially in matters connected to his love nature. He sometimes finds love when on a journey or in the pursuit of new studies, the love changes as the ideal changes. If he is to find true happiness the native must learn to control the restlessness and changeability of his nature. If he cannot do this he will continually be in a state of confusion very unsure of his ideals. He can be light-hearted and impressionable, very fond of pleasures and intensely involved in...

Lesson Xi

The following lesson concerns the influence of each planet as they pass through each house of the zodiac. It is important to realize that this influence will vary directly with the aspects formed to the other planets. You must also consider the nature of the sign occupying the cusp of each house. We use a very simple, yet very complete method of delineating this influence and you will be instructed in it in a future lesson. For now, just make sure that you understand the basic influences....

Venus In Gemini

Venus is well placed in the sign Gemini (of course this will fluctuate according with the aspects, to be covered later, of Venus to the other planets) and harmony is the foundation of this placement. The native must be warned however, that there will be times when his restless pursuit of variety will disrupt this harmony. There is a strong indication that one love will not be enough and he must be cautious not to let these desires destroy his happiness. There is also the tendency to pursue a...

The Element Of Fire

The three Fire Signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The Fire Signs are very much similar to the element of Fire. They impart movement, phosphorescence and radiance. These zodiacal signs of Fire are directly affiliated with the qualities of fanaticism, zeal, love, eagerness, passion, courage, enterprise, individuality, faith, and spirituality. It is of great significance that this triplicity has its beginning in the Cardinal Sign Aries, ruling the eastern hemisphere or sunrise, the beginning...

Mercury In Gemini

Mercury posited in the Sign Gemini, bestows, on the native, a mentality of keeness and alertness. The planet is dignified here as it is the natural ruler of the Sign Gemini. The position indicates a natural capacity to follow a variety of studies but you should caution the native to strive for a proper regulation of studies and not to attempt too much. This placement of Mercury is excellent for the pursuit of purely intellectual studies concerning literature, either prose or poetry. The...

Sun In Gemini

The Sun posited in the sign Gemini strengthens the intellectual side of the nature and attracts the native toward the pursuit of literature, science, or art, and to following some occupation connected with these. The mind becomes versatile and fond of change but positive and strong under this influence. This position confers a considerable amount of ingenuity of thought and action on the native. You should instruct the native that good planning and good organization can effectively curb the...

Sun In Cancer

This position indicates the reception of money or property from parents or relatives. This location also causes the native to be resourceful, active and creative and will give you a gift of intuitive understanding and of real human sympathy. Tell your client that he possesses an innate ability to know when to speak and when to keep silent. Further tell him that if he can employ this ability in his daily domestic life he will be able to smooth over some of the uglier situations and promote a...

Progressed Chart Rulership Analysis

The next step in our sample Progression Delineation is an evaluation of the Progressed Chart Ruler. Our sample clients Natal chart is ruled by Mercury and notably his Progressed Chart also falls under Mercury's domain. However, it is important to understand that the 3rd decan of Virgo now ruling furnishes a subrulership of Venus. Venus' inherent impact is doubly augmented when we realize that Libra is nearing ascendancy bringing with a Venus supremacy. However, Virgo is continues to occupy the...

Transits

In the previous Lesson (XX) you were introduced to the basic precepts of a transit. Now we expand that knowledge so that the word transit becomes an integral word in your vocabulary. In light of the preceding statement sit back relax, and read carefully this fascinating concept. Remember what was said in Lesson XX When we say that a planet is transiting we are merely defining its motion through the zodiac. When we talk about a progressed planet we simply are referring to a transiting planet...

2nd House

The 2nd House of the Zodiac defines an individual's personal financial interests. It specifies an individual's attitude towards money and typifies the sources from which money can be obtained through personal effort. Remember the profession is indicated in the 10th House. It is imperative to stress here that when we talk about money gained or lost we do not mean as a result of speculation or investment, for that comes under the influence of the 5th House. When it is gained or lost through...

Counterclockwise Motion Of The Planets

Since the Planets move in a counterclockwise motion, this motion must be inserted in order of their increasing degrees. Referring to DIAGRAM IV, although we have three planets in Libra, they are all less than 25 degrees, which is the degree of the Seventh House cusp, hence they are all placed in the Sixth House in order of increasing degrees. We also have three planets in Capricorn occupying from 10-22 degrees of the Sign, hence they are all placed in the Tenth House and not in the Ninth House....

Self Knowledge

Most people, although they do not want to admit it, do not know as much about themselves as they would really want to. This is an area where astrology can be of incredible significance for everyday people. Astrology can accurately reveal, through a careful analysis of the transits, the days when someone may be feeling strangely impatient or those peculiar days when their temper may be snappy. So too the easy days when someone will feel particularly relaxed are readily evident in your careful...

Aspect Interpretation Chart

The Moon defines our emotional make-up and our reactions to the different situations with which we must deal during the course of our lives. Whereas the Sun is the giver of life, the Moon is considered to be the soul which takes care of that life. The Sun is the authority of our Solar System. It provides existence and energy for everything and without it we would not function. The Sun represents the creative energy and the will to lead. II) The Sign Position of the Planets The Progressed Moon...

Mars In Libra

Mars is in the Sign of its detriment here and the radiations from the planet can be very dangerous if the native is not careful. There is a liability towards making unwise associations and ties and since Libra is a sign connected with marriage this position can be productive of unions with unsatisfactory results. Divorces and broken homes can result from this combination. He must employ the balancing influence of Libra in its full potential if he is to belittle the negative influences of Mars...

Uranus In The Signs

Once again to refresh our memory Uranus rules the sign Aquarius, it is exalted in the sign Scorpio has its fall in the sign Taurus and is detrimented in Leo. The native has an inventive, ingenious and active mind and he is very hard to understand. This position causes some lack of tact and difficulties in restraining feelings and expressions regarding the faults or supposed stupidities of others. This location of Uranus brings a liability toward estrangements and upsets affecting the...

Pluto

When we finally approach our outer-most planet we are now thirty times as far from the sun as is earth, and the solar energy falling on each square mile is a thousandth of that for earth. Arid, frigid, and dark, Pluto numbs the mind with its remoteness and hostility. Icy hummocks and a sprawling crater glimmers in the wan light of a tiny sun (bright star) nearly four billion miles away. The symbol of Pluto is composed of the sun, moon, and the cross of matter, or spirit, soul, and body. Pluto...

Neptune In The Signs

Neptune is the planetary ruler of the sign Pisces, it is exalted in Cancer, has its detriment in Virgo and its fall when in Capricorn. This position is likely to intensify the senses, feelings, and emotions and depending on the nature of horoscope this intensification can be either for good or evil. The native is prone to mystical experiences or beliefs. The native here is often the cunning planner, or the dangerous type of subtle subversive man or woman. The native should be cautioned about...

Venus In Scorpio

Venus in Scorpio intensifies the passionate side of nature and because it is detrimented here the undesireable traits have to be considered. One of the main drawbacks here is the jealous nature the native must cope with. If he does not learn to minimize this innate jealousy he can cause problems for himself and his friends. He must also control his passionate instincts because if they are allowed to reach extremes a great deal of trouble and unhappiness can occur. There is a tendency to...

Procedural Steps For Delineation Of A Progression

The progression of the Sun from one sign to another correlates with a new upsurging of desires, feelings, and traits which were latent before. (Note The Progressed Sun is of vital importance, hence a corresponding amount of time is devoted to its delineation.) It is similar to the culmination of something which has been developing inside all along. A change occurs, yet most often, it is in the sub-conscious, and most people are not aware of it. You are no longer part of this endless futility....

House Delineation

When we considered the Ascendant sign back in Lesson XVIII, we simultaneously constructed an analysis of the First House. Our work here is shortened because we can refer back to Lesson XVIII. In Diagram 1, we find that Leo is only slightly on the cusp of the ascendant, but Virgo has 23o the 1st House. Thus our Gemini client lacks determination and the drive to accept pressure. Yet he is persevering and ingenious and operates best when not subject to relentless pressure. There is an...

Moon In Taurus

With the Moon in Taurus you can expect the native to possess a highly creative nature. Taurus indicates the principles of devotion, common sense, and perseverance. Because of this influence he has a tremendous working ability and staying power but you should instruct him to endeavor not to become too rigid in certain of his conceptions and activities as this would interfere with his progress. With the Moon in Taurus the native should, if all else looks right, involve himself in matters of a...

Signs In The 3rd House

When Aries is in the 3rd House it incites the creative side of the native. It suggests that the native may have a deep interest in studies connected with construction and machinery. Aries, here, indicates that the native will travel a considerable amount and that the majority of this travel will be undertaken on the road. The native has an inborn driving desire for exploration and the challenge of the unknown. There is some implication of an accident while driving a car, so the native should...

The Tenth House

The influence of Aries in the Tenth House implies that the native's profession may involve the construction and mechanical businesses. It indicates involvement in all forms of building houses, shops, offices, factories, etc., and the various trades associated therewith, such as brickmaking, cement, concrete, carpentry, and painting. Road and bridge construction hold numerous financial opportunities for the native. He may also find some success in the timber and forestry businesses. The impact...

The Signs In The Houses

The Sign it is in, and more especially the particular degree of the Zodiac, rising upon the eastern horizon at the time of birth is known as the Ascendant Sign. This location is the 1 st and most important of the Houses. It depicts the personal appearance and to a considerable extent also the health, mind, and disposition. It is this specific part of the Zodiac which has the most direct influence on the physical body and it's material wants. The five physical senses find their complete...

Mars In Taurus

Mars is detrimented in Taurus therefore the inherent power of the planet is limited and frustrated. This position signifies that at times circumstances will restrict the natural desire for expression and interfere with the personal freedom of action. There will be control problems with the personal temper as the native gives in to impatience, sometimes very unnecessarily, with a subsequent experiencing of friction. A tragic or unfortunate marriage is indicated and ill-health through a religious...

He will become more deeply involved in important matters concerning his family. The Sun here assists the native in matters concerning his property and it's welfare. The Sun here demonstrates the alternate outcome of previous efforts and how they can effect the latter years of life. This position should enable the native to maintain his vitality and energy...

Saturn In The Signs

Again to refresh our memories Saturn is the ruler of the sign Capricorn, it is exalted in the Sign Libra has its fall in the sign Aries and is detrimented in the Signs Cancer and Leo. Saturn is in its fall when in Aries and its influence can cause much turmoil. This position will bring many periods of anxiousness and worrying but if the native can cultivate his powers of endurance and fortitude he will have some help he needs in working through the many difficulties encountered. There is a...

Eighth House

The Sun in the Eighth House generally indicates a quick death. Death from heart failure is a condition that should be guarded against. The influence of the Sun in this position quickens the actual conditions of death and thus it helps to prevent any undue suffering. It indicates possible benefit through legacy or inheritance. It also assists in the partner's handling of financial affairs. The Moon in the Eighth House affects the functional side of the native's life indicating that functional...

You will find, as you progress through the course, a rising sense of personal worth and...

Standard Time

On November 18, 1883, Standard Time was inaugurated in the U.S. and Canada . However, the geographical lines of the Time Zones were not definitely established until March 19, 1918. For example, the state of Georgia did not change to Eastern Standard Time until then. Previously, it had been on Central Standard Time. Since the meeting of train schedules, etc., is impossible on the basis of local time, Standard Time Zone meridians were spaced at intervals of 15 degrees of longitude east and west...

Progressed Moon

The second major consideration we undertake in the delineation of our sample progression is an evaluation of the Progressed Moon Sign Influence. The Progressed Moon is positioned in 11 degrees of Virgo in the 12th House, whereas the Radix Moon occupies 25 degrees of Libra in the 3rd House. The Progressed Moon changes Signs every 2 1 2 years and spends 29 years traveling the entire Zodiac. Remember when we say Progressed we mean the point at which we stop the Moon in motion at a point after the...
