Good afternoon,

This is an attempt to reply to a query in the 'sidereal' section that perhaps better belongs in this section.

To the best of my feeble knowledge, time lord/lady systems cannot effectively and should not be considered separately or quasi independently from the basic delineations of the event.

If for example certain planets are not dignified, in cadent places, essentially and / or accidentally afflicted, or the contrary, such items will be reflected in their behaviours or possible lack of effects in the time systems.

Best regards,

lihin

Good morning dear Mr (or Ms ?) Vanuna 2,

Thank you for your lengthy reply. No personal offence was intended as i have read very few of your writings.

There is at least one textbook of Indian astrology that includes a long primer of Sanskrit. One can have the impression that several Western, above all US-American, converts to Hinduism have become practitioners / teachers / authors of Indian astrology. Their energetic enthusiasm in promoting both reminds one of their cultural environment often characterised by religious zeal and proselytism of various sorts, mainly fundamentalist Christian protestant. Whether someone born outside Hindu society can effectively convert to Hinduism is subject to considerable intra-Hindu theological controversy.

Even several prominent exponents of Mediaeval and Renaissance astrologies cannot forego frequent references to 'God' without apparently being embarrassed by the vagueness of such a term. What about e. g. 'Goddess' and plural forms? As Proclus Lycaeus emphasised, 'The One' is inconceivable without 'The Many' and vice versa. Were they educated in ancient Heathen philo-Sophia, the mostly Anglo-Saxon Christian exponents of Mediaeval astrology might at least name e. g. the Demiurg, BrahmÔ (masculine singular Member of the Hindu Trimurti) Who seemingly is the Great Divinity they attempt to refer to.

Of course the interplanetary configurations in the basic event chart(s) (plural if one includes more than one harmonic), are an additional example of considerations requisite to correctly delineate time lord / lady data.

European civilisation is indeed attached, albeit not superficially, to a stream of Tradition usually called 'Hermetic'. It has been subject to some main language shifts. The underlying framework of reference is usually ancient Heathen Greek civilisation. This explains why, even today, so many words in European languages, especially in sciences including astrology, can be directly traced to ancient Greek roots. Both ancient Greeks and Brahmins were Heathen Indo-Europeans with much if not most common 'mythology'.

Best regards,

lihin

Posted: Tue Oct 09, 2012 6:35 am    Post subject: Proselyte configurations? Reply with quote

Good morning,

Perhaps we might try, within the framework of astrology with 7 planets, to identify configurations indicating a proselyte or a propensity thereto.

In his book on Arabian parts, the later specialised Western Mediaeval astrologer Robert Zoller touched this matter in his first set of examples but at that time included the known planets beyond Saturn. Meanwhile, due to the discovery of at least three additional dwarf planets beyond Pluto, one of them, Eris, having 30 % more mass than Pluto, the 20th century 10-planet astrological paradigm has died. Apparently many modern astrologers do not read the obituary column of their trade.

Jupiter - Mars connexions seem likely candidates, a Benefic configured with a Malefic. Since, its modern Western offshoots excluded, Hinduism to the best of my knowledge does not encourage proselytism, how is this matter dealt with, if at all, in Indian astrology?

It may be useful to note that the three founders of the leading current religions expressly engaged in proselytism and missionary activities, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism, were all of martial warrior descent (Kshatriyas), none of them of jovial priestly origin (Brahmins).

Best regards,

lihin
