House System Astrology - Which House System?

House System Astrology - Which House System?
I have just read two illuminating books on houses systems in astrology. Robert Hand’s “Whole signs – The Oldest House System” and the “History of the Houses” by Robert Powell. Between the two Roberts I think I have found a house system that works and has the weight of history and scientific analysis to back it up. The whole of modern Western Astrology is based on the tropical zodiac, which is based on the seasons and nothing to do with actual star-gazing. The AC represents 0 degs Aries, the beginning of the vernal equinox, the start of the pagan year spring. The earliest house systems where split into 4 quadrants going clockwise. Gauquelins Plus Zones Gauquelin says” The favorable zones should have been progressively expanded to thirty degrees after the rise and culmination of planets, ie houses 9 and 12. The most powerful of ALL houses according to Gauquelin would then include most of the much maligned 12th house, the so called “House of Self-undoing” So, was there an error?

Chaos magic The chaosphere is a popular symbol of chaos magic. Many variants exist. For more, see Symbol of Chaos. General principles[edit] Chaos magicians are often seen by other occultists as dangerous or worrisome revolutionaries.[2] History[edit] Origins and creation[edit] This magical discipline was first formulated in West Yorkshire, England in the 1970s.[4] A meeting between Peter J. Influences[edit] Following Spare's death, magicians continued to experiment outside of traditional magical orders. Early days[edit] The first edition of Liber Null does not include the term "chaos magic", but only refers to magic or "the magic art" in general.[6] Texts from this period consistently claim to state principles universal to magic, as opposed to a new specific style or tradition of magic, and describe their innovations as efforts to rid magic of superstitious and religious ideas. Chaos came to be part of this movement defined as "the 'thing' responsible for the origin and continued action of events[...].

Advanced Esoteric Astrology : Lynn Koiner - Astrological Research NOTE: The esoteric and hierarchical rulerships are given separately on this website. In the 1980s, I developed my own theories on Esoteric Astrology and its theory of Triangles of Energy. I am posting my lecture notes for anyone to use in their own research. The following are areas that I have researched in the field of Esoteric Astrology: 1. NOTE: I know that, in the 1980s, there was some controversy regarding the type of Zodiac to use. Hierarchically, Leo and the 1st House dominate in my current horoscope. I am not supposed to be in positions of prominence in this lifetime and probably not the next one either. I have found that the most practical application of this triangle is in the selection of the most satisfying career. 2. The Extra-Systemic Triangles for the Aryan Root Race, for which the archetype of the fully developed Aryan is Plato, might be Ascendant/Descendent axises (using the Hierarchal Rulerships)/Sirius House Position/Uranus, its sign and House Position. To reiterate:

The Law of Action and Manifesting Thoughts and Desires When it comes to manifesting thoughts and desires, we sometimes hear people talk about the Law of Attraction and how it can be used to manifest our desires. This method of using the Law of Attraction to manifest desires is very popular in the New Age and certain spiritual movements. Even though it is popular among certain groups of people, does it work as well as some people claim? Unfortunately, manifesting thoughts and desires does take some work. Depending on what you want to manifest, it could take a lot of time and energy to manifest your desires into reality. When it comes to manifesting thoughts and desires into material things, the most important law you need to pay attention to is the Law of Action. What is the Law of Action? The Law of Action is a universal law that allows us to act upon our thoughts and intentions to create the experiences we desire.

Everyday Evidence for the Law of Attraction (15 Examples) By Andrea Schulman If you are learning how to consciously create your reality with the Law of Attraction it is very important that you believe in the universe’s ability to deliver your dreams. You will only attract what you believe in. Many of us, however, have an “I’ll believe it when I see it” attitude, and we want evidence that this law works before we choose to really believe in it. Therefore, I’ve compiled 15 pieces of evidence for the Law of Attraction. Chances are, you’ve seen these things before and you’ll see them again. Buying a new car and then seeing them everywhereLearning a new word and then hearing it on TV or the radio several timesThinking about a friend and they suddenly call you up on the phoneThinking about someone and then running into them on the street or in the storeTalking about someone and then they show up out of nowhere (“Your ears must have been burning!”) Again, each of the above items are examples of evidence for the Law of Attraction.
