Greetings, Fellow Astrologers,
You are invited to share various thought complexes on the topic of inquiry.
I am in the habit of using these Time Lords, which I have enumerated below, according to my subjective ranking and favoring of them in practice.
Quarters of the Minor Planetary Periods
Yearly Profections w/ Handing Overs
Zodiacal Releasing from the 7 Hermetic Lots
Ascensions and Minor Planetary Periods & their halves and thirds
10y 6m from the Solar or Lunar Progenitor (Egyptian)
This list was not formulated from taking account of any one single of these procedure's "innate predictive power." Independently each method provides a valid portion of insight into the tenors of experience activated upon the native as catalyst for the free will. The astrologer seeks to unearth those important times when there are congruent testimonies from say 5 or more of the procedures operating simultaneously. Predictions will become even stronger when the these so called unified testimonies between procedures are taking place at the time when it is the genethiaological Lunar Return and when the ruler is found in a Chariot, in particular the exaltation. If this happens while stationing or making a Phasis, the better. When all this happens in accordance to the year*, the accuracy of the predictions is limited only by the native's ability to use metaphor.
(* Valens stated that the year (the "quality" thereof) is determined through the annual profection and subsequent handing overs.)
Thank you, Mr. Schmidt, for handing us these keys which appear to have opened the very rusted door of the Ogdoad!
