ACG lines - which ones?

For objects exactly on ecliptic lines "planet od horizon" vs. "planet on Asc" (also 'planet on Midheaven' and 'planet in culmination') are the same. The farther away the planet is from ecliptic, the bigger the difference is. Practically, for ancient planets ( Sun through Saturn) this difference is too small to bother yourself with it, except places very near poles (north of Norway). For some of the modern planets (Ceres, Pluto, Kora - UB313, especially the latter two) these lines can be as much as few countries away from each other even nor far away from equator. Which one you use and which one will work for you you must decide for yourself. From my limited experience with them I neglect planet on horizon and planet on culmination and go with line "planet conjunction Asc" and "planet conjunction MC". This is opposite to what I do with planet's house position, where I neglect ecliptic projection of the planet and go with it's position in space relative to house cusps in space.

When the night comes, turn the light off and change your background in Urania to black...

Behaviour of charts beyond polar circle. Both principles - dynamic vs. static - have their merits so there's no golden rule here. I personally choose MC to be continuous all over the globe, to avoid discontinuous 180 degree jump when Asc changes direction (dynamic over static principle), so beyond polar circle sometimes it may be on ecliptic the point that is below horizon. Another point for this zenit rule is that sticking to 'ecliptic longitude of MC' to be the point above horizon, this static principle quite often incorrectly places the planets that are in lower culmination into 9/10 house, while beeing in lower culmination they should be in 3/4 house.


...the same two charts, but here presented as equatorial rectangular map.

Jules Verne - Part of Fortune astrocartography

Fig. 1. Jules Verne - Part of Fortune


Selected lines to test how "house chart to ecliptic chart" lines (both for the same person) shape on globe. There are 10x10= 100 for additional lines for ten planets.


Fig. 2. Jules Verne - selected House-to-Ecliptic astrocartography lines

Label: object at top - ecliptic planet postion, object at bottom - house planet position (object changing position at bottom like in a normal planet-asc acg line).

Correlation between jamming on microwave background and tropical ecliptic

Seems that tropical ecliptic was officially scientifically discovered after all:

How distant bodies of Solar System influence us?

Detail notes on researching Kora (MPC 136199) and other Solar System bodies

How distant bodies form the solar system (like Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Kora) influence our natal charts? There seem to be two main ways - linkage to the personal planets by aspect and dynamically by transit (from slower moving) and progression (from faster moving planets). Most important, both for natal aspect or dynamic transit, are conjuction and oppostion, squares seem to be less important from these two, no matter if this is aspect Jupiter or Saturn or Pluto or Kora etc. to Sun.

My observations are focused on charts where this new point is in conjuction and opposition to personal planets, especially to Sun and/or Moon or forming tight aspect figures like T-Square. I do not list ascendant here because it is always a bit in doubt. Most important aspects are those in orb up to 2-3 degrees, and there are always fewer charts that has reliably confirmed ascendant and MC with exactitude better than these +-2 degrees. These should be those circumstances where will be a fair chance that it's characteristics will be at least partially visible and having enough impact on personality to offer any chance at all to filter it from the rest of personality traits. As this planet is moving so slowly, transits from it are mostly exluded and it leaves only transits to it from other bodies.

On the other side my perception is that even so called 'personal planets' with weak or no link to other important chart points seems to be most of the time too weak to draw clear conlusions and have not the biggest influence on personality. So the rule that "far away outer planet" is personally non important is not exact. On any charts where it is linked to Asc and/or moon and/or sun it is as important as any other personal planet for person's personality, and if linked to two or more of these points it is even more important than any personal planet not linked that way...

I live here rulership issue out, since these are cases more difficult to sort out from any other influence in the chart. The only promising situation would be two "would be rulers" (like Venus vs. Kora) of the sign occupied by planets and other sensitive points in two extreme situations: the ruler in exact grand trine vs the ruler in the T-Square/Grand Square, but these are very rare occasions so I have only few such charts to study exactly this one rulership issue. Rulership so far is derived more from similarity to Taurus sign traits than to such charts resolved.

Climate change and Proserpina/Kora

Astronomically dwarf planet 2003 UB313 / 136199 "Eris", astrologically planet Persephone/Proserpina/Kora.
Symbol: cross over circle (matter over spirit), cross decorated with additional smaller perpendicular lines.

"Astrological meanings" proposed from the name "Eris" in the USA do no fit to the nature of this new planet. Observed in charts, it's most similar to sign of Taurus. Few Polish astrologers, among them Jarosław Gronert and me, made research on this*, and most of us researching it in Poland settle on the names Persephone/Proserpina/Kora.

The more deep reason for haste with it's announcing in 2005 in restropection now three years later is better understood. The summer of 2005 was the first summer where 1/8 of the arctic (north) polar cap melted, this meltdown reaching as much as 25% in the summer of 2007. Climate change is now confirmed as one of the most profound keywords for this new planet, and in common words "The Spring" is one of her basic meanings.

Btw the season before spring in Taurus - times in Pisces/Aries are quite violent season of the year (especially in countries where rivers flow from south to north like Poland); and she is now still in Aries...

Urania: Going into orb going out of orb

Urania now shows period in orb with coloured bar on transit graph bars, with one fixed predefined orbs set. I'm implementing object set transit ingresses into house in graph lists now. What's next? Customizing orb set and defining user ones, and doing "in/out orbs dates" for standard transit/progress/firection lists.
