I know about dispositors and time lords. My purpose has been misunderstood. I was trying to show an example of one of the definitions, not to interpret it.
I'm sorry I misunderstood. Then to quote Robert Schmidt for those who don't have D&F:
"As for the astrological meaning of adherence, I can think of no better term than attachment
, which retains the physical sense of adherence, but also brings in the dimension of clinging or cleaving to something." (p. 164)
I have a further question. Does adherence occur when the faster planet is near the end of an image, and the slower planet is in the following image? This is the case for JFK in the sidereal zodiac (Krishnamurti) where Hermes is at 28 degrees of Aries but Zeus is 26 minutes into Taurus. (Though I'm comfortable with Greek deity names, I'm not yet comfortable with changing the names of the 12 images. The mind has to linger a bit too long to make the changeover.) Having just reviewed this section in D&F, I didn't see cross-image adherence discussed. (It may be discussed elsewhere in the book.)
