Some questions are asked by students in nearly every horary class: “What to do about early and late degrees rising?” ... “The significators perfected an aspect, but the event never happened... why?” ... “How long is a horary effective?” These questions trace the shape of common confusion and pitfalls in chart judgment, whether the horary practitioner is new or experienced in practice. Jupiter will discuss frequently asked questions in this talk from both a theoretical and practical angle.
Radicality – or the interconnectedness of symbolic moments – is a foundational astrology principle, not something relegated to horary alone. As transiting planets configure themselves day-in and day-out, how do we know which are likely to be personalised? Why should some events attend one nation and not another, even as the same signatures wheel overhead? To see how astrology localises its expression, we will explore how latent potentials within mundane cycles and event charts tend to collapse onto easy entry points.
In this session, different types of medical charts and their practical applications are explored, with particular focus on the use of the table of dignities. Participant charts will be used for the purpose of demonstrating how to select appropriate flavours in food and medicinal herb applications. If you wish to be a participant and have your chart used in this session please email William at email@example.com to provide necessary data in preparation for the session.
William Lilly’s 17th century horary on whether to purchase Master B’s houses gives a rare example of Lilly asking his own personal question, the details of which grant insight into what was going on in Lilly’s mind and life at that particular time. Approaching this horary through various angles, we see the budding master- astrologer at work, exploring various astrological techniques; and through its symbolism we also see mirrored to us the practical fears and emotional insecurities of a young man daring to step above the expectations of his lowly social status.
STA tutors love to answer questions on any element of astrology. We like to think there is nothing any astrologer could ask us, that we haven’t already thought about a lot and have worthy comment to make. We will use this session as an open platform for answering a selection of participant questions on any element of astrology, or the STA school in general. We will also consider the history of the STA and its plans for future developments as the tradition of astrology constantly evolves in this and every ‘modern age’.
Theophilus of Edessa, Greco-Syriac medieval astrologer who served the caliphs in Baghdad in the late 8th century, made unique contributions to the techniques of military astrology. Even when military astrology seems trivial, in times of peace, its methods always remain significant because they set the template for rules applied in trials, legal matters or any kind of conflict chart. Theophilus transmits the approach of Rhetorius and Dorotheus but further develops it through his own knowledge, part of which will be examined through considering his different examples.
Horary charts about desired kingships are often demonstrated in medieval texts but we rarely get the opportunity to test those techniques in today’s world. Join Nina for discussion of her horary judgment for a high-ranking politician in a Latin American country wanting to become his nation’s Foreign Minister. We will consider the traditional principles and rules for judging potential attainment of kingship or high office and apply them to this 21st-century horary.
When an appointment time is set between an astrologer and their client, they synergistically create a powerful moment. This agreed upon ceremonial moment holds all the information needed for a successful consultation. The chart set for that chosen moment, referred to as the ‘consultation chart’ reveals that information and discloses what lies in the client’s heart. It is nothing short of magical to experience the clarity the consultation chart can bring to even the most complex situations.
Does death show in a chart? These days, we expect that our children will live long enough to enjoy a full life. Before modern medicine and medical intervention, the continuing life of an infant could not be assumed. It may seem offensive in these modern times to even contemplate the death of an infant, but it remains the case that some of us are born with more vitality than others. So how much life is there in a moment, and can it be assessed astrologically?
