IT was Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, followed to its practical and logical

conclusions which led to the discovery of releasing and utilizing atomic energy. And

it is this same Special Theory of Relativity followed to its practical and logical

conclusions which indicates both how inner-plane energies operate and what can be

done to cause them to work more to the individual’s advantage.

As university scientists have conclusively demonstrated that time, distance and

gravitation on the inner plane have properties radically different than they have on

earth, should we expect inner-plane weather to operate according to the same laws

weather operates on earth? Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity carried to its

logical conclusions indicates that inner-plane weather affects the individual not

merely according to his inner-plane constitution, but through certain time-space

relationships that bring structural changes within his astral body.

Astrological energies constitute the inner-plane weather. How this inner-plane

weather affects an individual, however, is not dependent upon any theory; for even as

the time, distance and gravitation properties of the inner plane have been determined

experimentally by university scientists, so have the properties of inner-plane

weather, and how it works to affect individuals, groups, cities, nations and world

affairs been determined experimentally, and through statistical studies carried out in

the process of astrological research.

One of the outstanding influences of inner-plane weather is that when a person,

creature or important event is born, it is born at a time when the inner-plane weather

tends to coincide with the inner-plane make-up of that which is then born. Thus does

the inner-plane weather at the time of his birth, as mapped by his birth chart, indicate

the predisposition of an individual to develop abilities of a certain type. The

planetary positions and aspects, whatever they may be, which indicate such a

predisposition arc called its birth chart constants. The statistically ascertained birth

chart constants of 30 different vocations arc set forth in the reference book HOW TO

SELECT A VOCATION*

The predispositions indicated by the inner-plane weather conditions at birth never

manifest as events or diseases except during those periods when the appropriate

thought-cells receive commensurate additional energy from inner-plane weather

mapped by progressed aspects.

Inner-plane weather consists of astrological vibrations in their infinite variety of

combinations. Those mapped by progressed aspects enable planetary vibrations to

reach and make active certain groups of thought-cells. These thought-cells have

desires such as were imparted to them when they were formed and as indicated by the

aspects of the planets mapping them in the birth chart. Such desires are temporarily

altered by the planetary energy reaching them through the inner-plane weather

mapped by a progressed aspect. And the additional energy thus reaching the

thought-cells not only gives them the power to influence the individual’s thoughts

and behavior, but it also gives them the psychokinetic activity that enables them to

attract events of the kind they desire into his life.

By far the most important inner-plane weather is mapped by major progressed

aspects. Church of Light statistical research covering the lives of many thousands of

persons indicates that every important event of life takes place during the period

while a major progressed aspect is present involving planets characteristic of the

nature of the event, and which rule the birth chart house governing the department of

life affected. If more than one department of life is pronouncedly affected by the

event, at the time it occurs there are always major progressed aspects involving the

ruler of each house governing these various departments of life.

The periods in his life when the individual is likely to experience a specific event,

condition or disease toward which he has a predisposition are indicated by certain

major progressed aspects. These progressed aspects mapping inner-plane weather

conditions which have been found always to coincide with the given event, condition

or disease are called its progressed constants. The statistically ascertained

progressed constants of 20 different events are set forth in the reference book WHEN

AND WHAT EVENTS WILL HAPPEN,* and both birth chart constants and the

progressed constants of 160 different diseases are set forth in Course XVI,

STELLAR HEALING.

Both the birth chart position and the progressed position of a planet act as terminals

for the reception of planetary energy. Each terminal actually involved in the

progressed aspect receives the energy of the progressed aspect in full volume. But

unless the progressed aspect is from a major progressed planet to its birth chart

place–in which case there are only two terminals–each progressed aspect has two

other terminals not directly involved in the progressed aspect. Each of these two

terminals not directly involved in the progressed aspect receives, through the

principle of resonance, one-half as much energy as is received by each terminal

directly involved.

It is important to understand that commonly a major progressed aspect has four

terminals because our research has determined that each major progressed constant

of an event or disease is always reinforced by a minor progressed aspect heavier than

from the Moon to one of its four terminals at the time the event occurs or the disease

develops; and that each reinforced major progressed constant of an event or disease is

always released by a transit aspect heavier than from the Moon to one of its four

terminals at the time the event occurs or the disease develops. And an independent

minor progressed aspect is always released by a transit aspect to one of the birth chart

or major progressed terminals influenced by the minor progressed aspect at the time

the event takes place.

Before an ephemeris of Pluto was available to permit its aspects to be included, there

seemed to be indications that events influenced by progressed aspects of Sun or Mars

occasionally took place while the aspect was as much as a degree and half from

perfect. But as statistically indicated in C. of L. Astrological Report No. 61,

published in the January, 1948,* number of The Rising Star, in these instances while

sometimes the zodiacal aspect was well over the one degree limit, at the same time

there was a progressed parallel aspect involving the significant planet which was not

over the one degree limit.

The more closely the planets approach the perfect progressed aspect the greater the

amount of energy the temporary stellar aerial in the astral body is capable of picking

up, radio fashion, and transmitting to the thought-cells at its direct and indirect

terminals, and the more capable these become of influencing events.

Due to the reinforcement effect of minor progressed aspects to any of the four

terminals of the major progressed aspect, to the trigger effect of transit aspects to any

of the four terminals of the major progressed aspect, and to the physical environment

through which events must come, the important events attracted by major progressed

aspects seldom arrive exactly on the date the progressed aspect is perfect. But other

things being equal, they are more apt to arrive close to the date the major progressed

aspect is perfect than while the aspect is farther removed. Therefore, that the time and

nature of the important events which will be attracted into the life–unless they are

forestalled by precautionary actions–may be estimated in advance, it is essential

that the time be known when each major progressed aspect becomes perfect.

As major progressions arc measured by the ratio of the movements of the planets

during one apparent solar day releasing energy which causes the chief structural

changes within the astral body that takes place during one astrological year of life,

the movements and positions of the planets each four minutes after birth indicate the

structural changes that take place within the astral body each corresponding day after

birth; the movements and positions of the planets each two hours after birth spread

the structural changes so shown over each corresponding month of life after birth;

and the movements and the positions of the planets each day after birth indicate the

structural changes and events attracted during the corresponding year and time of

year of life.

The noon positions (or midnight positions if a midnight ephemeris is used) of the

planets as given in the ephemeris must thus represent their major progressed

positions for some year, month and day of calendar time either before or after birth.

And as on an average the progressed positions of the planets on the birthday are no

closer or farther from making perfect progressed aspects than the progressed

positions of the planets for any other day of the year, the calendar date which

corresponds to the ephemeris positions of the planets on the day of birth is the most

convenient starting point for calculating the calendar date any major progressed

aspect is perfect. Its originator called the calendar date thus found the LIMITING

DATE.

### Finding the Limiting Date

–The Limiting Date (abbreviated L.D.) is the date in calendar time corresponding to

the major progressed positions of the planets on the day of birth as they are shown in

the ephemeris. Convert the EGMT Interval of birth into months and days of calendar

time by dividing the hours by 2 and calling the result months, and dividing the

minutes by 4 and calling the result days.

If the EGMT Interval of birth is minus, add the calendar interval thus found to the

year and month of birth. If the EGMT Interval of birth is plus, subtract the calendar

interval thus found from the year, month and day of birth. The L.D. thus found is the

calendar starting point from which all major progressed aspects and positions are

calculated. As the birth chart positions of the planets are calculated for an EGMT

Interval, the most convenient time for finding the L.D. is while the chart is being

erected. However, should an EGMT Interval on the day preceding or following birth

be used in finding the planets, places, this must not be employed in finding the L.D.

Instead, the EGMT Interval on the day of birth must be ascertained; for the L.D. must

always be calculated from the EGMT Interval on the day of birth. On B. of L. student

blanks a space is designated on which to write the L.D. It may be in the year of birth,

in the year previous to birth, or in the year following birth. In writing it down be sure

to include not only the month and day of month, but also the year in which it falls.

Example 1: Chart la, Jan. 2, 1920, has an EGMT Interval of plus 10h 32m. What is the

Limiting Date?

10 divided by 2 gives 5 as the month. 32 divided by 4 gives 8 as the days. As the

interval is plus, the 5 months, 8 days must be subtracted from Jan. 2, 1920. This gives

July 24, 1919, as the L.D. This means that the places of the planets given in the

ephemeris for Jan. 3, 1920 (one day after birth) are their major progressed positions

for July 24, 1920. The Map. D. for calendar year 1920 is thus Jan. 3, 1920.

Example 2: Chart 316, Dec. 17, 1920, has an EGMT Interval of minus 3h 30m. What

is the Limiting Date?

3 divided by 2 gives 1 month with a remainder of 60 minutes. 60m plus 30m gives

90m. 90 divided by 4 gives 22½ as the days. As the interval is minus, this 1 month,

22½ days must be added to Dec. 17, 1920. This gives Feb. 9, 1921, as the L.D. This

means that the positions of the planets on the day of birth, Dec. 17, 1920, are their

major progressed positions for Feb. 9, 1921; and that their positions as shown in the

ephemeris for Dec. 18, 1920, are their major progressed positions for Feb. 9, 1922.

Likewise, the positions of the planets in the ephemeris for Dec. 28, 1920, are their

major progressed positions for Feb. 9, 1932. Which means that the Map. D. for 1932

is Dec. 28, 1920.

Example 3: The birth chart of Henry Ford (Course X-I, Chapter 5) has an EGMT

Interval of plus 7h 56m. What is the Limiting Date?

7 divided by 2 gives 3 as the months, with a remainder of 60m. These added to 56m

gives 116m 116 divided by 4 gives 29 as the days. As the Interval is plus, this 3mo

29d must be subtracted from July 30, 1863, which is the date of birth. This gives April

1, 1863, as the L.D. July 31, 1863, represents the major progressed positions, and is

the Map.D. for April 1, 1864; and Aug. 1, 1863, represents the major progressed

positions for April 1, 1865. and is thus the Map.D. for 1865.

### Finding the Major Progression Date

–Both the L.D. and the Major Progression Date should always be calculated from

the date of birth in the ephemeris. Using the day preceding or following birth in the

ephemeris is the most common source of error in calculating major progressions. The

Major Progression Date (abbreviated Map.D.) is the ephemeris day which shows the

major progressed positions of the planets for the month and day of the Limiting Date,

but for some calendar year. To find the Map.D. for any calendar year, count ahead in

the ephemeris from the day of birth as many days as complete years have elapsed

since the Limiting Date. The ephemeris day so located is the required Map.D.

Examples 1, 2 and 3 illustrate the process.

### Finding the Midheaven Constant

–As explained in Chapter 1, the M.C. progresses–by major progression, by

minor progression, and by transit progression–exactly the same number of signs, °s

and ‘s that the Sun progresses through the zodiac during the same time. As the

progressed aspects made by the M.C. and Asc. are extremely important–next in

importance to those made by the Sun–it is advisable to reduce the work of

calculating a series of them, once for all, in each chart by finding the Midheaven

Constant.

The Midheaven Constant (abbreviated M.C.C.) is the distance in the chart of birth

between the M.C. and the Sun in signs, °s and ‘s expressed as a plus or minus, so that

when added to the sign °, and ‘ occupied by the M.C. the algebraic sum gives the sign,

°, and ‘ occupied by the Sun. It is found by merely subtracting the smaller zodiacal

longitude occupied by birth chart M.C. or Sun, from the larger zodiacal longitude

occupied by birth chart M.C. or Sun, and placing before the signs, °s, and ‘s thus

found the proper plus or minus sign.

Then, wherever the M.C. may be by progression–major, minor or

transit–algebraically add the sign, °, and ‘ it occupies to the M.C.C. and the result is

the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the progressed Sun. And wherever the progressed Sun

may be, change the sign before the M.C.C. and algebraically add it to the sign, °, and ‘

occupied by the progressed Sun and the result is the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the

progressed M.C.

Example 4: In chart la, the Sun is 11 Capricorn 16 and the M.C. is 5 Aries 45. From

10S 11° 16′ subtract 1S 5° 45′ and it gives 9S 5° 31′. As to find the position of the Sun

the difference so found must be added to the M.C., the M.C.C. is plus 9S 5° 31′.

Example 5: In chart 316, the Sun is 25 Sagittarius 08 and the M.C. is 16 Cancer 45.

From 9S 25° 08′ subtract 4S 16° 45′ and it gives 5S 8° 23′. As to find the position of

the Sun the difference so found must be added to the M.C., the M.C.C. is plus 5S 8°

23′.

Example 7: In the Henry Ford chart (Course X-I, Chapter 5), the Sun is 7 Leo 06 and the

M.C. is 12 Virgo 00. From 6S 12° 00′ subtract 5S 7° 06′ and it gives 1S 4° 54′. As to

find the position of the Sun the difference so found must be subtracted from the M.C.,

the M.C.C. is minus 1S 4° 54’.

### The Problems of Progressions

–The calculations involved in chart erection, major progressions, minor

progressions and transit progressions are chiefly the solution of problems in direct

proportion such as are taught in grammar school. In each problem (a): (b) :: (c) : (d)

In thus solving problems in proportion, as the product of the means is equal to the

product of the extremes, when the two inner terms are given, multiply one by the

other and divide the product by the outer term. When the two outer terms are given,

multiply one by the other and divide the product by the inner term. The result is the

answer.

Any of these problems in proportion can be solved in four different ways. They can

be solved by direct proportion, they can be solved by logarithms, they can be solved

with a slide rule, or they can be solved with The Church of Light Chart Calculator.

In mathematically handling proportions involving hours and minutes and °s and ‘s,

the use of logarithms greatly reduces the labor. Each problem in proportion

considered in this book can be worked either by direct proportion, or by logarithms.

By either method the letter employed to designate each term of the proportion is as

follows:

(a) is the ephemeris daily gain, or gain through some constant interval of time or

space.

When only one planet or position is moving, as when a planet is moving to make an

aspect with some birth chart position, the ephemeris daily gain (a) is the daily motion

of the planet. When both planets or positions are direct in motion, or when both

planets or positions are retrograde in motion, subtract the ephemeris daily motion of

the slower moving planet from the ephemeris daily motion of the faster moving

planet. The result is (a) the ephemeris daily gain. When one planet or position is

direct in motion and the other is retrograde in motion, add the two daily motions.

Their sum is (a) the ephemeris daily gain.

(b) is the gain during some selected interval of time or space.

(c) is the constant interval of time or space.

(d) is some selected interval of time or space.

In employing direct proportion to solve problems in progression it is more

convenient to work immediately with calendar time. But in employing logarithms it

is more convenient to work the problem first in terms of progression time (EGMT

Interval), and then convert the result so found into calendar time. Diurnal

proportional logarithms such as are to be found in the back of most ephemerides arc

constructed to solve just such problems in proportion, term (c), which is always 1440

minutes (24 hours) , being taken care of by the table.

The advantage of such logarithms, which are almost universally used in erecting

birth charts to find how many °s and ‘s a planet moves during a given EGMT Interval,

is that the logarithm of term (b) can be obtained merely by adding the logarithms of

term (a) and (d); and the logarithm of term (d) can be obtained merely by subtracting

the logarithm of term (a) from the logarithm of term (b).

To designate the birth chart position of a planet it has become the custom to use the

letter r after the planet, to designate a major progressed planet to use the letter p after

the planet, to designate a minor progressed planet to use the letter m after the planet,

and to designate a transit progressed planet to use the letter t after the planet.

### Finding the Major Progressed Positions of the

Planets on a Given Calendar Date

–Find the plus or minus calendar interval in months and days the given date is from

the nearest month and day of the L.D. Then find the Map. D. in the ephemeris for the

L.D. from which the given calendar date is this number of months and days distant.

Convert the calendar interval from the L.D. in that calendar year into EGMT Interval

(major progression time) at the rate of each month being equivalent to 2 hours, and

each day being equivalent to 4 minutes. If the calendar interval is plus the EGMT

Interval thus found is plus; if the calendar interval is minus the EGMT Interval thus

found is minus. Use this EGMT Interval on the Map. D. in the ephemeris exactly as if

finding the birth chart positions of the planets for this EGMT Interval on that

ephemeris day.

Example 8: Find the major progressed positions of the planets on Nov. 24, 1949, for

chart la. In example I the L.D. is found to be July 24, 1919. Subtracting 7mo 24d from

11mo 24d gives a plus calendar interval of 4mo. Multiplying 4 by 2 gives a plus 8h

EGMT Interval. Subtracting 1919(L.D.) from 1949 gives 30. Adding 30 days to

January 2, 1920 (date of birth) gives February 1 as the Map. D. Using the planetary

positions on Feb. 1, 1920, and calculating their positions for a plus EGMT Interval of

8 hours, gives their major progressed positions on November 24, 1949, as shown on

in chart 1a in the front of Chapter 3.

Example 9: Find the major progressed positions of the planets on April 24, 1934, for

chart 316. In example 2 the L.D. is found to be Feb. 9, 1921. Subtracting 2mo 9d from

4mo 24d gives a plus 2mo 15d calendar interval. Multiplying 2 by 2 gives 4h.

Multiplying 15 by 4 gives 60m, or 1h. There is thus a plus 5h EGMT Interval.

Subtracting 1921 (L.D.) from 1934, gives 13. Adding 13 days to Dec. 17, 1920 (date

of birth) gives Dec. 30, 1920, as the Map. D. Using the planetary positions on Dec.

30, 1920, and calculating their positions for a plus EGMT Interval of 5h, gives their

major progressed positions on April 24, 1934, as shown in chart 316 in the front of Chapter 3.

### Finding the Major, Minor or Transit Progressed

M.C. on a Given Date

–First find the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the progressed Sun on the given calendar

date. Change the sign before the M.C.C. and algebraically add the M.C.C. to the sign,

°, and ‘ occupied by the progressed Sun. The result is the precise progressed M.C.

Example 10: Find major progressed M.C. for chart la on November 24, 1949. In

example 4 the M.C.C. for this chart is shown to be plus 9S 5° 31 ‘ . Major progressed

Sun on November 24, 1949, is 11 Aquarius 41. Subtracting 9S 5° 31′ from 11S 11°

41′ gives 2S 6° 10′. Thus progressed M.C. is 6 Taurus 10.

Example 11: Find major progressed M.C. for chart 316 on April 24, 1934. In example

5 the M.C.C. of this chart is shown to be plus 5S 8° 23′. Major progressed Sun on

April 24, 1934, is 8 Capricorn 44. Subtracting 5S 8° 23′ from 10S 8° 44′ gives 5S 0°

21’. Thus progressed M.C. is 0 Leo 21.

### Finding the Major, Minor or Transit Progressed

Asc. on a Given Date

–In a table of houses look between the two columns within which the progressed

M.C. occurs, and find (a) the °s and ‘s between the nearest and next nearest Asc. given

for the latitude nearest that of birth.

Find (c) the °s and ‘s between the nearest and next nearest M.C. given in the table. In

Dalton’s, AP, Raphael’s and RC tables this is always 1° (60’) .

Find (d) the °s and ‘s between the true M.C. and the M.C. given in the table.

By proportion reduce each term to ‘s, then multiply ( a ) by ( d ) and divide the product

by ( c ) . This gives (b), the distance the Asc. is from the nearest Asc. given in the table

for the nearest latitude given in the table.

By logarithms, to log. (a) add log. (d),and from the sum so found subtract log. (c).

The result is log. (b), the distance the Asc. is from the nearest Asc. given in the table

for the nearest latitude given in the table.

If the true M.C. is smaller than the M.C. given in the table, subtract (b) from the

nearest Asc. in the table. If the true M.C. is greater than the M.C. given in the table,

add (b) to the nearest Asc. in the table.

This gives the Asc. for the latitude given in the table. If the latitude of birth is not precisely

that given in the table, use the Correction For Latitude given in the front of Chapter 3.

Example 12: Find major progressed Asc. for chart la on November 24, 1949. In

example 10 the major progressed M.C. for this date is shown to be 6 Taurus 10. AP

and Raphael’s tables give the Asc. for 6 Taurus as 1 5 Leo 39 and the Asc. for 7

Taurus as 16 Leo 24. The difference (a) is thus 45′. As 6 Taurus 10 is 10′ more than 6

Taurus, (d) is 10′. (c) is 60′. By proportion, multiplying 45 by 10 gives 450. 450

divided by 60 gives 7½’. By logarithms, the sum of log. (a) 1.5051 and log. (d)

2.1584 is 3.6635. Subtracting log. (c) 1.3802 from 3.6635 gives 2.2833, which is the

log. of (b) 7½’. To the Asc. for 6 Taurus, which is 15 Leo 39, we add 8′ (considering

the ½ as 1), which, as the table is for the precise latitude of birth, gives the

progressed Asc. as 15 Leo 47′.

Example 13: Find major progressed Asc. for chart 316 on April 24, 1934. In example

11 the major progressed M.C. for this date is shown to be 0 Leo 21. Dalton’s table

gives the Asc. for 0 Leo in latitude 40 as 25 Libra 38, and the Asc. for 1 Leo as 26

Libra 27. The difference (a) is 49′. As 0 Leo 21 is 21′ more than 0 Leo, (d) is 21′. (c) is

60′.

By proportion, multiplying 49 by 21 gives 1029. 1029 divided by 60 gives 17.

By logarithms, the sum of log. (a) 1.4682 and log. (d) 1.8361 is 3.3043. Subtracting

log. (c) 1.3802 from 3.3043 gives log. 1.9241, which is the log. of (b) 17′. To the.

Asc. for 0 Leo, which is 25 Libra 38, we add 17′, which gives the progressed Asc. for

the latitude given in the table as 25 Libra 55.

But as the true latitude of birth is 39° 45′, there is a correction to be made for (d) the

15′ difference in latitude. Under the 0 Leo column the table gives 25 Libra 52 for

latitude 39, and 25 Libra 38 for latitude 40, a difference of (a) 14′. (c) is 60′.

Following the instructions given in the front of Chapter 3, by proportion, multiplying(a)

14 by (d) 15 gives 210. Dividing 210 by 60 gives (b) 3½’. By logarithms, subtracting log.

(c) 1.3802 from log. (d) 1.9823 gives .6021. Adding log. (a) 2.0122 to .6021 gives

2.6143, which is the log. of (b) 3½’

As the true latitude is less than the nearest latitude given in the table and the ‘s are

decreasing with latitude, we add the correction of 3½’ to 25 Libra 55, which

(considering the ½ as 1) gives the progressed Asc. as 25 Libra 59.

### Finding the Calendar Date on Which a Major

Progressed Aspect Between Planets is Perfect

–Find the Map. D. in the ephemeris nearest the ephemeris time the aspect is perfect.

Find (a) the daily gain in °s and ‘s of the one planet on the other as indicated on the

Map. D. in the ephemeris.

Find (b) the °s and ‘s the aspect is from perfect. In employing proportion (c) is 12

months or 365 days. In employing logarithms (c) is 24h EGMT Interval.

In employing proportion (d) is months and days of calendar time from the L.D. in the

calendar year it takes the planets to close the gap (b) and make the perfect aspect.

In employing logarithms (d) is the number of hours and minutes of EGMT Interval

on the Map.D. it takes the planets to close the gap (b)and make the perfect aspect.

This EGMT Interval must then be converted into its equivalent plus or minus

calendar interval at the rate of each 2 hours being equal to 1 month and each 4 minutes

equal to 1 day. By either method if the aspect is formed before the positions given in

the ephemeris, subtract the calendar interval thus found from the L.D. in the calendar

year. If the aspect is formed after the positions given in the ephemeris, add the

calendar interval thus found to the L.D. in the calendar year. This gives the calendar

date the aspect is perfect.

By proportion, to find (d) multiply (b) by (c) and divide by (a).

By logarithms, to find (d) subtract log. (a) from log.(b).

Example 14: The L.D. for chart la was found to be July 24, 1919. On what date does

the Sun make the conjunction with Uranus r by major progression?

Uranus r is 29 Aquarius 03. Turning to the 1920 ephemeris we find the Sun on Feb.

19, 1920, in 29 Aquarius 34, and thus (b) 31 ‘ past the perfect aspect. Between Feb. 18

and Feb. 19, 1920, the Sun is moving (a) 61’.

By proportion, multiplying (b) 31 by (c) 12 gives 372. Dividing 372 by (a) 61 gives

the calendar interval (d) as 6 6/61 months, or 6mo 3d.

By logarithms, subtract log. (a) 61′, 1.3730 from log. (b) 31′, 1.6670, and it gives log.

.2940, which is the log. of (d) 12h 12m. Dividing 12 by 2 gives 6mo. Dividing 12 by 4

gives 3 days.

Counting ahead in the ephemeris from the day of birth, January 2, 1920, we find that

Feb. 19 is 48 days later. Adding 48 years to the L.D., July 24, 1919, gives 1967 as the

calendar year for Map. D. Feb. 19, 1920. As the aspect was formed before the

positions given in the ephemeris on Feb. 19, 1920, we subtract the calendar interval

6mo 3d from July 24, 1967. This gives the date of progressed Sun conjunction

Uranus r as January 21, 1967.

### Progressing the Sun

–Examples of finding the dates of major progressed aspects of the other planets will

be found in Chapters 3 and 4. For precision the calendar date on which

each progressed aspect involving the Sun is perfect should be determined in the

manner above indicated. But as the daily motion of the Sun varies only from 57′ to 61

‘, its approximate major progression per month is 1/12 of this, or approximately 5 ‘;

and 1 ‘ progression is thus equivalent approximately to 6 days of calendar time. Thus

when there is no need for precision it is more convenient to work progressed aspects

of the Sun by proportion.

Example 6: Find date on which in chart la major progressed Sun makes the

semi-square with Venus r. Venus is 28 Scorpio 18. The Sun must therefore reach 13

Capricorn 18 to make the semi-square. In example 1, we found the L.D. for this chart

to be July 24, 1919. On January 4, 1920, the ephemeris shows the Sun 12 Capricorn

51. It must therefore move 27’ to make the aspect. Dividing 27 by 5 (‘s of Sun travel

per month) gives 5mo. Multiplying the remaining 2′ by 6 (days the Sun travels in 1′)

gives us 12d.

Counting ahead in the ephemeris from the day of birth, January 2, 1920, we find

January 4 is 2 days later. Adding 2 years to the L.D. July 24, 1919, gives 1921 as the

calendar year for the Map. D. As the aspect was formed after the positions given in

the ephemeris, we add the 5mo 12d to July 24, 1921, and it gives the date of Sun

semi-square Venus r as January 6, 1922.

When the actual travel of the Sun on the Map. D., 61’, is used, the more precise date

obtained by either proportion or logarithms is January 3, 1922. The problem worked

out in detail by logarithms is given at the front of Chapter 1.

### Finding the Sign, °, and ‘ on the M.C. for a Given

Asc.

–If the table of houses does not give the precise latitude of birth, find the Correction

for Latitude as explained in the front of Chapter 3.

When the true latitude is less than the nearest latitude given in the table: If the table

shows the ‘s decreasing with latitude, the correction is subtracted. If the table shows

the ‘s increasing with latitude, the correction is added.

When the true latitude of birth is greater than the nearest latitude given in the table: If

the table shows the ‘s decreasing with latitude, the correction is added. If the table

shows the ‘s increasing with latitude, the correction is subtracted.

This gives the Asc. for the nearest latitude given in the table.

Find (a) the °s and ‘s between the nearest and the next nearest M.C. in the table. In

Dalton’s, AP, Raphael’s and RC tables this is always 1° (60’).

Find (c) the °s and ‘s between the nearest and the next nearest Asc. given in the table.

Find (d) the °s and ‘s between the true Asc. corrected for the latitude given in the

table, and the nearest Asc. for that latitude given in the table.

(b) is the distance the true M.C. is from the nearest M.C. given in the table.

By proportion, to find (b), multiply (a) by (d) and divide the product by (c). By

logarithms, add log. (a) to log. (d) and from their sum subtract log. (c).

Example 15: In chart 1a what sign, ° and ‘ is on the M.C. when progressed Asc. makes

the conjunction with Neptune r? To make the conjunction the progressed Asc. must

move to 10 Leo 55. Looking in the table of houses for New York we find the nearest

Asc. 11 Leo 08, with 30 Aries 00 on the M.C. The next nearest Asc. is 10 Leo 24. The

difference (c) is 44′ The difference (d) between 10 Leo 55 and 11 Leo 08 is 13′. By

proportion, multiplying (a) 60 by (d) 13 gives 780. Dividing 780 by (c) 44 gives 18′.

By logarithms, adding log. (a) 1.3802 to log. (d) 2.0444 gives log. 3.4246.

Subtracting log. (c) 1.5149 from 3.4246 gives 1.9097, which is the log. of (b) 18’.

As the Asc. when the aspect is complete is less than the nearest Asc. given in the

tables, the 18′ must be subtracted from 30 Aries 00. This gives the progressed M.C.

29 Aries 42.

Example 16: In chart 316 what sign, ° and ‘ is on the M.C. when progressed Asc.

makes the trine with Pluto r? To make the trine with Pluto r the Asc. must move to 8

Scorpio 04. Dalton’s table of houses shows 15 Leo 00 on the M.C. when 7 Scorpio 40

is on the Asc. in lat. 40, and 8 Scorpio 01 on the Asc. in lat. 39. As chart 316 is erected

for lat. 39:45, there is a correction to be made for (d) 15′ of latitude. (a) is 21′, the

difference between 7 Scorpio 40 and 8 Scorpio 01. Multiplying (a) 21′ by (d) 15′

gives 315. 315 divided by (c) 60′ gives the correction for latitude as 5’. Subtracting

this 5′ from 8 Scorpio 04 shows that when 8 Scorpio 04 is on the Asc. in lat. 39 :45, 7

Scorpio 59 is on the Asc. in lat. 40, the lat. given in the table. We need to find,

therefore, the sign, °, and ‘ on the M.C. when the table shows 7 Scorpio 59 on the Asc.

in lat. 40.

In lat. 40 the table shows 7 Scorpio 40 as the nearest Asc. and 8 Scorpio 27 as the next

nearest. The difference (c) is 47′ The difference (d) between 7 Scorpio 40 and 7

Scorpio 59 is 19′. By proportion, multiplying (a) 60 by (d) 19 gives 1140. Dividing

1140 by (c) 47 gives 24′. By logarithms, adding log. (a) 1.3802 to log. (d) 1.8796

gives log. 3.2598. Subtracting log. (c) 1.4863 from 3.2598 gives 1.7735, which is the

log. of (b) 24’.

As the Asc. when the aspect is complete is more than the nearest Asc. given in the

table, the 24′ must be added to 15 Leo 00. This gives the progressed M.C. 1 5 Leo 24.

### Finding the Calendar Date from Major, Minor

or Transit Progressed M.C.

–Algebraically add the sign, °, and ‘ of the progressed M.C. to the M.C.C. The result

is the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the progressed Sun on the sought calendar date. Thus

when the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the Asc. when it makes an aspect is determined,

the sign, °, and ‘ on the M.C. for this Asc. can be ascertained as above explained. And

when the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the progressed M.C. when it makes an aspect is

determined–as when it makes an aspect to a birth chart planet-this can be used. In

either case, from the M.C. find the sign, °, and ‘ occupied by the progressed Sun by

algebraically adding to it the M.C.C. Then find the calendar date on which the

progressed Sun occupies the sign, °, and ‘ so found. This is the precise date on which

the progressed Asc. or M.C. makes the aspect, or reaches the given sign, °, and ‘ of the

zodiac.

Example 17: In chart la, on what date does major progressed Asc. make the

conjunction with Neptune r? In example 15 we found the aspect is perfect when 29

Aries 42 is on the progressed M.C. In example 4 we found the M.C.C. for this chart to

be plus 9S 5° 31′. Adding 9S 5° 31′ to 1S 29° 42′ gives the major progressed position

of the Sun 11S 5° 13’. On January 26, 1920, the ephemeris gives the Sun 5 Aquarius

15. This is 2′ past the required position, and as the Sun moves at the rate of 1 ‘ for each

6 days by major progression, this is equivalent to 12 days to be subtracted from the

L.D. July 24, in the calendar year, giving July 12. As January 26 is 24 days after birth,

we add 24 years to the year of the L.D., 1919. Asc. is conjunction Neptune r July 12,

1943.

Example 18: In chart 316, on what date does major progressed Asc. make the trine

with Pluto r? In example 16 we found the aspect is perfect when 15 Leo 24 is on the

M.C. In example 5 we found the M.C.C. for this chart to be 5S 8° 23′. Adding 5S 8°

23′ to 5S 15° 24′ gives the major progressed position of the Sun as 10S 23° 47’. On

January 14, 1921, the ephemeris gives the Sun 23 Capricorn 49. This is 2′ past the

required position, and as the Sun moves at the rate of 1′ for each 6 days major

progression, this is equivalent to 12 days to be subtracted from the L.D. February 9,

in the calendar year, giving (ignoring the 31 days in January) January 27. As January

14 is 28 days after birth, we add the 28 years to the year of the L.D., 1921. Asc. is trine

Pluto r January 27, 1949.

### Finding the Progressed Zodiacal Motion of

Major, Minor or Transit M.C. or Asc.

–In a table of houses find the nearest Asc. to that the motion of which is to be

ascertained for the latitude nearest that of birth. The difference in Asc. motions

between consecutive latitudes is so small that using the motion for the nearest

latitude is sufficiently precise.

Find (a) the difference in °s and ‘s between the nearest and the next nearest Asc. given

in the two columns within which the progressed Asc. is found.

Find (c) the difference in °s and ‘s between the nearest and the next nearest M.C.

given in the same two columns in the table. In Dalton’s, AP, Raphael’s and RC tables

this is always 1° (60’).

Find (d) the daily motion of the Sun in °s and ‘s as given in the ephemeris on the Map.

D., MED, or Transit Date. This is also the number of °s and ‘s traveled by the

progressed M.C. during the same progressed interval. It is the daily motion of the M.

C. on the Map. D., MED, or Transit Date.

By proportion, multiply (a) by (d) and divide the product by (c). This gives (b). By

logarithm, add log. (a) to log. (d) , and from the sum subtract log. (c). This gives log.

(b). (b) thus found is the °s and ‘s the Asc. moves during the same major, minor or

transit progression interval moved by the Sun. It is the daily motion of the Asc. on the

Map. D. MED, or Transit Date.

### Finding the Calendar Date on Which an Aspect

Involving Major Progressed M.C. or Asc. is

Perfect.

–From the daily motion of the M.C. or Asc. on the Map. D., and the daily motion of

the planet on the Map. D., find (a) the gain of the one on the other in °s and ‘s. If the

aspect is from progressed M.C. or Asc. to a birth chart position, (a) is the daily motion

of M.C. or Asc.

Find (b) the °s and ‘s the aspect is from perfect. To find (b) first find the sign, °, and ‘

occupied by the progressed M.C. or Asc. on the Map. D. Then find the sign, °, and ‘

occupied by the progressed planet on the Map. D. The °s and ‘s which are less

subtracted from the °s and ‘s which are greater, gives the °s and ‘s the aspect is from

perfect.(c) is 12mo calendar time or 24h EGMT Interval.

With (a) , (b) and (c) thus ascertained the date the aspect is perfect is found exactly as

in finding the date on which a major progressed aspect between planets is perfect.

Example 19: In chart la, on what date does major progressed Sun make the

opposition of progressed Asc.? On Feb. 20, 1920, the ephemeris shows Sun 0 Pisces

34. Subtracting the M.C.C. 9S 5° 31′ found in example 4, from 12S 0° 34′ gives the

progressed M.C. for this Map. D. 25 Taurus 03. The Asc. when 25 Taurus 03 is on the

M.C. as worked from the table of houses for New York is 0 Virgo 31. Progressed

Sun, moving faster than progressed Asc. is thus (b) 3′ past the perfect opposition.

The Sun on Feb. 20, and therefore the M.C., is moving 60′. The Asc. is moving 48′

while the M.C. moves 60′. The gain (a) of the Sun on the Asc. is the difference

between 48′ and 60′ or 12′.

By proportion, multiplying (b) 3 by (c) 12 gives 36. Dividing 36 by (a) 12 gives 3mo.

By logarithms, subtracting log. (a) 2.0792 from log. (b) 2.6812 gives log. (d) .6020

which is the log. of 6h. Dividing 6 by 2 gives 3mo. Subtracting the 3mo from the L.D.

July 24, in the calendar year, gives April 24. Feb. 20 is 49 days after the day of birth

on Jan. 2. To the year of the L.D., 1919, we therefore add 49 years. Progressed Sun is

opposition Asc. p April 24, 1968.

Example 20: In chart 316, when does major progressed Mercury make the sextile

with major progressed Asc.? The Map. D. for 1930 is 9 days after birth, or Dec. 26,

1920. The ephemeris position of Mercury on this date is 22 Sagittarius 23. The

position of the Sun on Dec. 26, 1920, is 4 Capricorn 27. In example 5 we found the

M.C.C. of this chart to be plus 5S 8° 23′. Subtracting 5S 8° 23′ from 10S 4° 27′ gives

the progressed M.C. on the Map. D. 26 Cancer 04. Dalton’s table of houses shows 22

Libra 19 on Asc. in lat. 40 when 26 Cancer 00 is on M.C. Asc. moves 50′ while M.C.

moves 60′. Thus when 26 Cancer 04 is on the M.C. 22 Libra 22 is on the Asc. in lat.

40.

As explained in example 13 there is a further correction of 3′ to be added which

gives the Asc. in lat. 39 :45 as 22 Libra 25.

As the Asc. on Map. D. is 22 Libra 25, and Mercury is 22 Sagittarius 23, the distance

aspect is from perfect (b) is 2′.

The Sun on Dec. 26, and therefore the M.C., is moving 61′. To find how far Asc.

moves while M.C. moves 61′, as previously explained, multiply (a) 50 by (d) 61.

This gives 3050. Then divide by (c) 60, which gives the daily motion of the Asc. (b)

as 51′. The daily motion of Mercury on Jan. 26, 1920, is 1° 31′. The daily gain is thus

40’.By proportion, multiplying (b) 2 by (c) 12 gives 24. Dividing 24 by (a) 40 gives (d)

24/40mo or 18d.

By logarithms, subtracting log. (a) 1.5563 from log. (b) 2.8573

gives 1.3010 which is log. (d) 1h 12m. Dividing this 72m by 4 gives 18d. As Mercury

is moving faster than the Asc. the aspect is formed after the Map. D. Therefore the

18d must be added to Feb. 9, 1930. Progressed Mercury is sextile Asc. p, Feb. 27,

1930.
