I don't mind this having turned essentially into a personal conversation between two people, but if you want to discuss politics, please do it in private.

Interesting, you've got me there going for a loop, refreshing my memory on distributions.
Or directions, as they have been called in the west for the past millennium or so. Wink

Let's moderate our tone a bit here, shall we? It should be possible to discuss techniques without getting personal.

No, I never use the angles as promissors, but what I do use is traditional terminology. So the significator is the point signifying something, and the promissor is the point promising (or threatening) ...

No, I don't. And for what it's worth, I haven't seen the Lot/Part of Fortune (or any other Lot) work consistently in directions either, whatever Ptolemy says.

Naturally, the more points (and aspect ...

Is there any explanation for the frontispiece of Morin? It doesn't sound much like his style of astrology.

At the risk of flogging a dead horse, I just added a page to my website where I discuss, inter alia, the slightly bizarre charge of 'whole-sign house denialism' and the use of different methods of hou ...

If we compare the Centiloquium with the Tetrabiblos, it is fairly obvious that they are not by the same author, so 'Pseudo-Ptolemy on Weather' might have been a better subject heading. Wink

Thank you for pointing to (and translating) this, Ouranos. As a marginal note, in the unlikely event that someone should try to trace the publication from 'Goteborg Hogskolas Aesskrrft' listed in the ...

I had a closer look, and it seems the problem isn't what I first thought. Rather, it seems that Planetdance is producing a number of (what I would consider to be) false hits. This is probably to do wi ...

Thanks, Ed, I found it. I confess I can't make head or tail of the triwheel, but I see there is also a list function. Is it possible to (de)select moving/fixed points (= promissors/significators in th ...

Hi Ed,

Just installed Planetdance, but I'm not sure where to find the classical/standard primary directions; could you advise? Also, is it possible to get rid of the transsaturnians and other extra ...

Thanks for this notice, Ed; I'll check that out as soon as I can. Incidentally, I rather dropped the ball on this topic, but I do intend to get back to it eventually.

Thanks, James and Ouranos, for plugging my books. Wink
