Good morning,

Reference is made to Claude Ptolemy's Tetrabiblos, Book I, Chapter 23, first part, and to Mediaeval astrologers like Al-Qabisi who include 'Facing the Luminaries'.

One finds the definitions of 'Facing the Luminaries' respecting Their sect leaderships and referencing primary diurnal motion Very Happy . It is an accidental honour mentioned first by Ptolemy before the Chariot of Triumph and the Throne. As far as i can see, no delineation is given by either Ptolemy or Al-Qabisi.

It would be much appreciated if readers could give references to delineations by authors of Hellenistic and / or Mediaeval astrology who have applied 'Facing the Luminaries' and / or could report their own experiences with this honour.

Upon first reflection it seems to me that 'Facing the Luminaries' would mitigate aversion otherwise present between the facing planet and the Luminary.

Best regards,

Non esse nihil non est.
