This system is known as the Cycle or Turning of the Year. Instead of just using a Solar Return, this method was prepared yearly for each birthday. It has its roots in Hellenistic Astrology, came to full flower in the Arabic and Persian eras, and persisted through the late Classical period of Lilly and his contemporaries. Ben Dykes' translation of Abu Mashar's On Solar Revolutions in Persian Nativities 3 is a full exposition of this system.
This course covers the three techniques involved in this system:
Using clear explanations, examples and exercises, Charles Obert will initially show students how to apply each technique individually and then practice putting them all together. Students will then practice using them in combination with traditional techniques for evaluating a chart.
Students should be able to use essential and accidental dignities for chart evaluation - weighing upstrengths and weaknesses.
