Astrological Techniques for Prediction

With this text , leave some of the techniques used in Astrology as prognosis , being :
We can create an analogy and consider the houses as the stage on which our actions unfold , signs as the setting in which they arise and planets as actors responsible for actuated and lived experience . Life is a process of continuity , as a book containing a story where our experiences are inscribed .
Through astrological techniques can realize that evolutionary experience existential process met . Thus , from the source to our natal chart appears , we progressed it in order to know , for example, what trends it reveals to a certain age .
There are several techniques for analyzing the natal chart with some more reliable than others. However , be more correct if we are uncertain of the time of birth , especially if we consider the primary directions , whose standard establishes a degree corresponds to a year. If the time of birth is not correct , will emerge miscalculations and how well the map route not give us accurate directions .
The progressions are made by mathematical calculation , which leads us to speak of so-called secondary progressions . This method provides a criterion to match one day to one year. We can see the progression making the map, the position of the planets is very slow little significance . However , the fast planets arise in other houses and signs . We should also pay attention to the angles of the map as the slowest moving planets and significant changes . We have a map that enables us to realize the evolutionary moment in which the person is .
The secondary progressions reveal fields of subjective experience , how internalize the experience and how it is reflected in our psychological energy , rather than the occurrence of casual outdoor events obtained through the astrological transits .
The astrological transits are the movement of the planets in the heavens and their relationship with our birth chart . They embody events that are apparently outside source and align us important cycles . Timekeeping more generally , describing moments through symbols common to all people , assuming an important tool that helps us to understand how it is a person's relationship with the world that surrounds it . In a few moments the person will be harmonized and rejoicing in this world , and others will be disgusted unfortunate because he feels that the environment that prevails at a given time , it is adverse .
Within the astrological techniques also highlight the solar revolution . Just as , in astrology world , the importance of input spring is explained by the tradition of starting the Sun ( and all planets ) at 0 degrees Aries , the survey of individual map the Sun returns to its birthplace can provide various information . We emphasize the importance of rectifying the issue home by solar revolutions and the role of retrogradations of the major planets in the sky annually ( see " The technique of solar revolutions " Alexander Volguine ) .
In understanding an astrological chart we still have , and equally important , aspects . Aspects come from the angular relationship between the points on the planetary zodiac. The astrological chart is represented as a circle 360 . This circle is divided into 12 equal segments of 30 degrees each (12 x 30 = 360 ) . A division for each of the 12 astrological signs of the zodiac The planetary positions are calculated as positions within 30 degrees of a sign . So when you hear someone say its sun is at 15 degrees of Scorpio , is that the sun is in the middle of the astrological sign of Scorpio . The distance between each planet is also represented in the graph in degrees. If the Sun is at 15 degrees of Scorpio and Moon in Capricorn 15 degrees are 60 degrees apart .
Scorpio is two signs away from Capricorn ( Will Scorpio, Sagittarius , Capricorn , then ) for it to count 30 degrees 15-15 Scorpio / Sagittarius and another 30 degrees of Sagittarius 15-15 degrees of Capricorn .
The main aspects are:
Conjunction - 0 degrees ( planets near each other). Conjunctions add emphasis to the planets involved and sign . May be favorable or unfavorable , depending on the planets involved . When the energies are mixed together and the combination can form a blind spot when trying to distinguish between the qualities and energies involved .
Sextile - 60 degrees - generally considered a soft aspect , one in which there is a lack of tension between the planetary energies . Attraction and self-expression is enhanced ; harmonious cooperation . They point to the ease and talent and energy that can be directed .
Square - 90 degrees - Considered one aspect disk. Friction energy , strong and intense . Cardinal - fast action ; fixed - as action and stable shifting - can go either way . The tension involved can be a spur to action , experienced as stress , or be represented by unexpected and undesirable events .
Trine - 120 degrees - Considered one aspect soft . The signs involved are usually the same element ( fire, earth , air or water ) . Energy generally favorable , accepting , light and lively , easy spirit , creativity , pleasure , ease in doing things . Brings talent and energy that seems natural , so natural that can not even be consciously perceived or realized .
Opposition - 180 degrees - Considered one aspect disk. May represent divided loyalties , swinging one way then the discontent of other internal and uncertainty , consideration of multiple viewpoints .
Minor aspects include:
Semi - sextile (one inconjunct ) - 30 degrees . The planets involved in a semi - sextile are usually in adjacent zodiacal signs and do not share the same qualities ( cardinal, fixed or changeable) or the same element ( fire, earth , air or water ) . Considered to have a mild aspect , not as smooth as the sextile .
Semi -square - 45 degrees. Aspect drive. Friction causes , asks for action.
Quincuncio (another inconjunct ) - 150 degrees . Aspect drive. The planets involved in quincuncio not share the same qualities ( cardinal, fixed or changeable) or share the same element ( fire, earth , air or water ) . Represents adjustments , reordering of priorities , stress , redirecting .
Quintile (division of the circle by 5 ) - 72 degrees . One aspect that is gentle creative talents , and has a spiritual connotation .
Orbs - Planets are rarely separated by the exact number of degrees indicated for the different aspects , so astrologers use an orb of influence . Astrologers vary in the number of degrees they use for these spheres . However, as a general rule , from 7 to 8 degrees is commonly used for the main aspects and 1 to 3 degrees for smaller aspects . Furthermore , the sun and moon are often given larger spheres , up to 10 degrees for the most important aspects .
Astrological patterns also look at the patterns made by different groups of planets . Some of the most common patterns are:
Stellium - This is when three or more planets are in conjunction , closely grouped or occupy the same house .
T- quadrature When two or more planets are in opposition and they square of a third planet . The third planet is the focal point and the point of greatest tension .
Large Cross - When two pairs of planets are in opposition and squared to each other. If designing aspects , they have visually shape of a box with a cross inside. Creates a great deal of stress and challenge.
Large Trigono - When three planets generally the same element are each approximately 120 degrees from each other . A grand trine assumes the qualities of the elements it represents. A fire trine has unity , earth trine is a pleasure stable energy demand , air trine is more intellectual , and a trine water is intuitive and emotional .
Yod - This pattern is formed when two planets are in sextile each other and each connect to a third planet 150 degrees apart. The third is the trigger point of the Yod . Considered a standard aspect doomed . Represents lessons and issues to overcome.
