Update your Solar Fire atlas / time zones

Scales pointed out yesterday that Solar Fire didn't accurately catch daylight saving time in Beirut. However, Astrolabe periodically publishes time zone / atlas updates. The Lebanon issue was already correct last October, and there is another update from April 2020. However, you have to go look for ...

Re: A timed chart for the May 17 1792 NYSE Radical Chart

Steve, I know you know these dynamics, but I'm posting this for anyone else looking in. The link below is to an article in The Wine Economist that primarily is talking about fluctuating dollar values and the impact on the domestic wine industry, but addresses this by talking about the larger, macroe...

Re: 2020 July events

I was going to say the longitude was a typo (it was), but it seems the typo did propagate to all the charts. Oops! I'm going to redo all the above. NOTE: This is a rare occasion where lunar phase charts told a better story than the Sidereal ingresses. Almost exactly one day before this explosion, on...

My next SLR occurs Thursday, August 6, at 2:04 PM. I expect to be at home. Here is the breakdown. This one is simple, a single aspect. Marion's concurrent Demi-SLR has transiting Venus setting and natal Jupiter on IC. She's approaching a progressed Moon-Jupiter opposition in October. t Moon on IC -7...

Re: Beirut explosion

Thanks. There's already a Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Beirut_explosions UPDATE 8/5: The explosion registered as a 3.3 quake and, therefore, USGS has pinpoint timing of it: 15:08:18 UT, 33N54'06", 35E31'11". Deaths are now "more than 113," more than 4,000 injured, and hundreds ...

Re: Uranian Astrology

I actually wish most of this thread were in a different thread. I meant this one to be a tutorial in the basics of Uranian as a reference thread, and that wandered into examples. Why not start a different thread in the experimental section?

Side-by-Side Comparisons

There is another way to compare these - one that has served well in athletic competitions - and that's to see who has better charts for each individual chart checked. Transits: Biden Trumps are personally devastating. Biden's are mildly favorable. Secondary Progressions Trump's are inconclusive but ...

StarAgeWiz drew my attention to this the other day - we haven't dug into Inauguration Day factors for the two (presumptive) candidates yet, and we should.

He's talking bout two of the TNPs (but respecting that I said I didn't want to get too deeply into the TNPs or Uranian house systems in this thread). Directed Moon aspects Hades (05' past for election day). Directed Venus squares Kronos (01' applying for election day). Those two aspects disclose the...

Re: Uranian Astrology

Given the timing of the first aspect, renunciation makes more sense to me as his taking up the job of president at this point in his life. It will surely be a great burden and a great drain. He surely knows that, if successful, this is how he is going to spend the remaining time in his life.

What do you think of Waverly NE? Jupiter sq. MC 0°08'. That's pretty good! (Eight miles east of town would be even better.) You'll get Venus opposite Saturn-Pluto regardless, but this adds a splendidly precise Jupiter to tip the scales your way. That seems to be what most of us are doing this year ...

Re: Joseph Biden

Sorry but the way you said full moon over Sun-Moon made it sound like you were standing on superstition over astrology my apologies. It's quite common for astrologers to refer to Moon-Sun aspects by phase names. If nothing else, typing "Full Moon" is faster and easier than typing "Moon-Sun oppositi...

Re: Joseph Biden

Biden has Uranus exactly setting (0°30'), with Sun, Venus, and Saturn more widely foreground. It's these wider angularities that have more interesting things to tell us though: Venus is 4°43' above Asc, Sun 5°28' above Asc, and Saturn 4°53' above Dsc. Therefore, two of the strongest things in his ch...

Somehow this thread on Biden has turned into a thread on Harris (and on Biden 's VP candidates) instead of a discussion of Biden. To try to close some loops on that, commenting on the Alpaca's comments, here is what we expect from an exact Moon-Sun aspect in the typical case (in her case a 0°09' opp...

Re: Joseph Biden
