Forum: Sidereal Astrology   Posted: Sun Sep 14, 2014 11:08 pm   Subject: Do Tropical Traits Reflect Underlying Sidereal Signs?
As suggested, I have removed a few recent posts on the topic of which zodiac is the right one and why. This is a perfectly legitimate topic of discussion in itself, but it is not the topic of this thr ...

Larxene,

You start this thread with a great question. I’d highly recommend Gavin White’s book, Babylonian Star Lore. I believe this will give you a good sense of the living, organic process that ...

This is what might mislead people about using a non-tropical zodiac, and I’m glad to see Therese and Martin clarifying things. The symbolism most in the west are familiar with is tropical. Throw out ...

Deb and Mark,

Regarding your discussion on the first page of the VP shifting throught the signs, from perhaps 15 degress to 10, 8, etc., I don't understand how the autumn equinox would have fallen ...

What interests me is whether Valens actually uses the equinox as the starting point of Aries anywhere. That would contradict his description of the signs at I.2.


In Anthology Book I chapter 6, w ...

James (Atlantean), thank you.

James and Mark, I believe that the things you say just after my last post are not at odds with each other, even though they could seem to be. A vocal "sidereali ...

Therese, I agree with you for the most part, and probably 100% in spirit. I’ve found that his writings are, as you say, thought provoking, even when incorrect. And I agree with you that it’s importa ...

Before letting it slip by, I’d disagree that Fagan’s views are not heavily contradicted by modern scholarship. One example is to be found in A Primer of Sidereal Astrology (with B.R.G Firebrace, AFA ...

Therese, thank you. You began this thread with a question of mine on another thread, and your question just above (about “relinquishing all the usual symbolism and structure” of the zodiac) basically ...

Bogdan,

Interesting thread. My question to you (and anyone else) is about odd vs. even numbers. In antiquity, odd numbers were considered masculine, and even numbers feminine. This is almost uni ...

Nixx,

My thinking is much more simplistic: the most basic, obvious trait of a planet having an influence on its enduring symbolism. Along the lines of blood red Mars, for instance. What were the ...

Nixx,

I wonder how much of Uranus' "sudden change" personality derives from the fact that the discovery of this planet is the very exemplar of sudden change to astrology. The American an ...

The way I intuit Uranian energy is not as the red, flaming, consuming energy of Mars or even the Sun. I picture Uranian energy as more of a “cool” blue energy, this even though it is certainly hot. ...

Thanks, waybread. I'd seen the "octave" term here and there but didn't think much of it. I remember reading something Rob Hand wrote comparing Mercury and Uranus, noting how they're both v ...

No, I do not think Uranus is a "higher octave" of Mercury. (Give me a little credit. Surprised ) The "octave" approach is from a brand of modern esoteric astrology to which I do no ...
