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.

Rapt parallels are strictly an in mundo technique, so in the Primary Directions dialogue box in Morinus you need to check either Mundane or Both in the left-hand panel. That should fix the grey-out.

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

Not sure if Martin can comment on the accuracy of Parallels in Morinus (in Mundo?) or if their use is relevant enough.
I don't use parallels my ...

Thanks to Levente László, I found the place: it was in one of his HOROI project translations, not ancient but Byzantine. I must have connected it in my mind with Paul because his profection example ...

Thanks, Ouranos, but it was in an actual text by an ancient (? or possibly medieval, but I think not) author that I remember reading this example. As I said, I thought at first it might be Paul, but o ...

I am trying to locate an example that I thought was from a Greek-language author, perhaps Paul of Alexandria or Hephaestio, but haven't been able to nail down. As I recall, it was of a nativity where ...

I don't think Indian astrologers use calculations in right ascension to any great degree. To calculate primary directions you need to understand right and oblique ascensions (and, if using the Ptolema ...
