Good afternoon,

Without having read the thread referred to at another site, one might point out that the position of the pars fortuna depends on those of Helios, Selene and Horoscopos (Ascendant). The formula to be used to calculated it for night events is, however, disputed amongst astrological authors since Hellenistic times.

Since the Sun is of middling speed, the Moon travelling some 13 ecliptical degrees daily but Medium Coeli and Ascandant moving about one degree every four minutes, it should be apparent that the latter two are preferred in most rectification methods due to their sensitivity to time. The PoF generally moves about at about the same speed as the Ascendant from which it is 'projected'.

Were the PoF epikratetor ('hyleg', corrupted Persian, later Arabic, 'hilaj') of the nativity (again, methods to determine the epikratetor differ amongst authors since Hellenistic times), one might use it as significator in primary directions timed to important corresponding life events. Since the Renaissance the number of 'keys' (equivalences between degrees of movement and civil time elapsed) and kinds of primary directions proposed for use has, like the number of astronomic objects discovered and proposed for symbolic use by astrologers, proliferated.

Best regards,

Non esse nihil non est.
