Self-Discipline This week I’ll be blogging a series on self-discipline. New posts on this topic will appear every day Mon-Fri. I’ve also added a new self-discipline category. In this series I’ll be focusing on what I call the five pillars of self-discipline. The Five Pillars of Self-Discipline The five pillars of self-discipline are: Acceptance, Willpower, Hard Work, Industry, and Persistence. Each day of the series, I’ll explore one of these pillars, explaining why it’s important and how to develop it. What Is Self-Discipline? Self-discipline is the ability to get yourself to take action regardless of your emotional state. Imagine what you could accomplish if you could simply get yourself to follow through on your best intentions no matter what. Self-discipline is one of many personal development tools available to you. Building Self-Discipline My philosophy of how to build self-discipline is best explained by an analogy. Progressive training means that once you succeed, you increase the challenge.

Ingredients of Astrology - Planetary Aspects Ingredients of Astrology - Planetary Aspects © 2002 by Melanie Lichtinger Planetary aspects are indicated by the lines from one planet to an other in your birth chart. They symbolize the complexity of our psyche and how its parts relate to each other. The word ‘aspects’ is derived from the Latin ‘aspectare’ which means ‘looking at each other’. Technically speaking, aspects are certain significant geometrical angles between planets in our birth chart. 2 = 180 º (red), called opposition: Planets positioned at opposite sides; 3 = 120 º (blue), called trine: Planets positioned 4 signs apart; 4 = 90 º (red), called square: Planets positioned 3 signs apart, and 6 = 60 º (blue), called sextile: Planets positioned 2 signs apart. The conjunction shows planets very close to each other, like a ‘bundle’. And finally there is the quincunx, an interesting aspect, with planets 5 signs apart (green). These are the most important aspects which every astrologer is familiar with.

Astrology 101: Huber style chart In Europe, the Huber school of astrology is wide-spread, and that includes the distinctive look of the charts. My Norwegian astrology teacher taught this system, and I like it very much. So here is a brief explanation. Huber basics The Huber style of chart drawing, draws in aspect lines and uses three basic colors. Red is for dynamic aspects, blue for calm aspects, and green for yearning aspects. I wasn't taught the Huber style with other aspects than the above, but I see that the astrology program Solar Fire assigns red to the sesquisquare and semisquare, which is logical, since these aspects have an expression similar to the square aspect, but weaker. Aspect interpretation, Huber-style In the Huber school, the "ideal" chart has mostly blue lines, then red ones, and finally, a few green ones. Aspect figures From this you get a lot of the aspect figures that some people ask about, like the mystic rectangle. The "good" move red-green-blue = action-change-rest.

The best I can hope to do in the short space I'm allowing myself is to offer some basic guidelines--which basics should, in fact, be enough to get anyone started reading charts. This lesson gives a method of horary analysis in its broadest strokes. There remains much debate in horary circles on the subject of "well-it-works-for-me" strategies of analysis.
