A statistical analysis about retrograde movement over time. See how often are planets moving retrograde in time.
'Everyone has probably heard that old familiar sports term: “Out-of-bounds!” Regardless of the sport involved, these words mean that the ball or player has gone beyond the limits of the established field of play. Could a similar dynamic be impacting the planetary play on the field of your birth chart?
'The Stations of the Planets are often overlooked in predictive work but they are one of the most important and indicative factors. The planets are far more effective when (apparently) Stationary in their orbits than when moving at their normal speed. They are as powerful as Primary Directions. Hence they should always be given priority in Forecasts. Of course, the planets are never really Stationary. They only appear to be so at different times when observed from the Earth.'
'In August 2006, astrology was given a new worldview. The announcement of a new class of dwarf planets implied far reaching changes in the collective that will be bigger than anything we have never known. And whilst Sedna and Eris have been easy to give meaning to, the announcement that Pluto`s moon, Charon, also might be considered a dwarf planet, has caught many by surprise. What does this mean?
'Trying to be an up-to-date astrologer in this time of such incredible discovery and dynamic change is both frustrating and humbling. Never before in our written history have we had so many new planetary discoveries to take into account. Should we even take them into account?
'Today you may have seen two words appear on Planet Waves that you will rarely if ever see — ‘malefic’ and ‘benefic’. These pertain to descriptions of planets from traditional astrology, that is, astrology that existed before the modern revival (and before the discovery of psychology), and which dates back about 3,000 years.'
'The conjunction actually expresses the birth and the creation of the current, according to the nature of the conjuncting planets and the place of the conjunction. The sextile translates the evolution of the current; a passage from a virtual, latent condition into an affective and manifest one.
"In Western Astrology from the Greek period forward through the Arabic period and the Latin astrology of the Middle Ages we find frequent references to planetary periods. In another article on this webpage. I have given an extensive discussion on alfridaries or firdar a system of periods apparently derived from the Persians. In this discussion I concentrate solely on the system of small, mean, and great periods."
'Many contemporary astrologers today mostly agree with the concept that the outer planets affect them in both their birth chart and by transits to sensitive points in the birth chart. However, it is my opinion that this cannot be so. The reason behind my thinking is quite simple. Who among the many readers of this page can readily fly an airliner? Or control a multinational organization? Successfully lead an army of soldiers into battle? The point is these feats are possible but unless you have had the training and experience the probability of simply doing so is beyond your reach.'
