1. I would not personally consider this particular case, since astrodatabank's source notes are "from memory" and are also conflicting.

Forum: Philosophy & Science   Posted: Mon Apr 12, 2021 4:09 pm   Subject: magic and astrology
To me the fact of Mercury the planet of magic and hermetism being in the place of honour closest to the Sun in the solar system says something about the nature of the universe. Rather than being benev ...

My opinion is Al-Kindi, if we regard planetary hour as a metaphor for the strongest planet(s) and horse shade as metaphor for jock colors and horse numbers. It's also possible to dig deeper into it li ...

I believe the context of the event is paramount in such charts. For example in UK horse racing, since it's not parimutuel there are no official odds and that influences what shows in the charts. For a ...

The scientific consensus? Confused Does it really extend much beyond Schmidt and his mer ...
