Title: Latest work
Post by: ABer on July 04, 2020, 04:43:06 PM
Hi there - here is a sample of the latest work. An addition to the Medieval Traditional Chart showing transits, solar return and profections for the year and month. All in one handy window!

Thanks Jean - I think I'm going to do a solar return wheel too. This will be a big update to the medieval traditional chart module. Ed

Further update - two charts showing direction positions. SR wheel shows annual directions of MC and Asc. Natal wheel shows primary directed positions of MC and asc for distribution through the bounds (MC - black dot), Asc (green dot). Profections positions for year and month shown (red dot - profected asc sign for year, blue dot - for month).

These look like great additions to the module. :) Can we also have Chaldean bounds, please?

Should be easy by using the getbound() function,you'd only have to change the parameter Ed. :)

Thanks for the comments.

Sindy - in general I have used Egyptian and Ptolemaic bounds, from the Tetrabiblos. Do you have any reference for the Chaldean bounds so that I can put this in the help please. It should be possible to add Chaldean bounds fairly easily using Jean's function.

All the best. Ed

Ptolemy also gives the Chaldaean terms/bounds, thought not in a table. He writes: "The Chaldaean method involves a sequence, simple, to be sure, and more plausible, though not so self-sufficient with respect to the government of the triangles and the disposition of quantity, so that, nevertheless, one could casily understand them even without a diagram. For in the first triplicity, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, which has with them the same division by signs as with the Egyptians, the lord of the triplicity, Jupiter, is the first to receive terms, then the lord of the next triangle, Venus, next the lord of the triangle of Gemini, Saturn, and Mercury, and finally the lord of the remaining triplicity, Mars. In the second triplicity, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, which again has the same division by signs, Venus is first, then Saturn, and again Mercury, after these Mars, and finally Jupiter. This arrangement in general is observed also in the remaining two triplicities. Of the two lords of the same triplicity, however, Saturn and Mercury, by day Saturn takes the first place in the order of ownership, by night Mercury. The number assigned to each is also a simple matter. For in order that the number of terms of each planet may be less by One degree than the preceding, to correspond with the descending order in which first place is assigned, they always assign 8 to the first, 7 to the second, 6 to the third, 5 to the fourth, and 4 to the last; thus the 30 of a sign is made up. The sum of the number of degrees thus assigned to Saturn is 78 by day and 66 by night, to Jupiter 72, to Mars 69, to Venus 75, to Mercury 66 by day and 78 by night; the total is 360 degrees."

Thanks I've got them now, same chapter as the Egyptian, but as you say not presented in a table.

Latest screenshot.

Sorry for the late reply. I wasn't able to respond sooner. Regarding to source texts for the Chaldean bounds I only know about Ptolemy (the passage Jan gave above). I've been searching for other sources but so far I wasn't able to find any. The sequence and logic of the Chaldean bounds is, however, so intriquing that I think there has to be more and perhaps even older sources than Ptolemy. What was Ptolemy's source? If anyone knows more, please let me know. I'm very much interested in investigating this further. :)

Thanks Sindy - I will incorporate these bounds into the medieval script, that will give Egyptian, Ptolemian, Chaldean and Lilly's variation on Ptolemy. Jan reminded me that the text was in Ptolemy, but I was looking for a table, not a textual description. I will be updating people about the work I am doing on developing these scripts through this forum as I don't do Facebook. Thanks. Ed

Thanks, Ed!  :) Oh, I forgot... A table displaying the Chaldean bounds can be found on this site: https://www.google.com/amp/s/altairastrology.wordpress.com/2009/03/01/more-on-the-terms-or-bounds/amp/

Thanks Sindy - that's helpful. I'm hoping to have a significant update of medieval traditional horoscope out in the next couple of weeks. There will be a lot of new features. Ed

Thanks for the feedback - this is getting close to release. I need to test over the weekend, and include the Chaldean bounds. Otherwise I think it's ready to go.

Hi - some delays on the final stages of this script. However here is some sample input on directions of the MC through the bounds over the course of the solar return year. The script will include the same for the directed ascendant. Ed
