Good evening,

Although many references are found to the differences of rising times of tropical signs (northern hemisphere) in various books of Hellenistic and Mediaeval astrologies, to my quite incomplete knowledge there were no comprehensive delineations of signs - comparable to ex. gr. polarity, triangles and squares (also referred to as gender, element and mode) - based on the aforementioned differences.

Am aware of the various kinds of 'mirroring' based on the rising times, sometimes understood to mitigate aversions.

Could someone fill me in please, if possible, on further, extensive delineations in Hellenistic and / or Mediaeval astrological works?

It would seem appropriate to bear in mind that the signs to not 'shift speeds' from fast, middling, slow and back but rather accelerate and decelerate.

Here is a list for convenience' sake:

Aries - fast decelerating
Taurus - middling decelerating
Gemini - slow decelerating
Cancer - slow accelerating
Leo - middling accelerating
Virgo - fast accelerating
Libra - fast decelerating
Scorpius - middling decelerating
Sagittarius - slow decelerating
Capricornus - slow accelerating
Aquarius - middling accelerating
Pisces - fast accelerating

One can see that these qualities directly taken from astronomical phenomena contrast to the three modes. They are six in number, shared by opposite signs but not of the same nature as polarity (gender).

Best regards,

Non esse nihil non est.
