Thank you for your innovation and profound insight on proximity of the planets. More than enjoyed. Brilliant!! – Cindy L.
Most modern astrology either ignores or is unaware of the celestial reality of the planets beyond the chart wheel. Yet ancient sky-watching cultures derived meaning from visible planetary phenomena such as brightness, speed, sky appearance, Earth proximity and retrograde motion before modern conventions of signs and houses by some 2000 years!
The visual planets are those that are possible to be seen by naked-eye observation only and include Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Where Mercury and Venus have two different invisibility periods, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn have just one. And where Mercury and Venus are invisible when they are both closest to and furthest from Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are furthest from Earth when invisible and closest to Earth when brightest in our skies.
Includes plenty of graphics and clear instructions for how to incorporate these sky factors into your delineations. This class seeks to educate astrology students and professionals on these sky factors in service to a richer, more embodied astrology — one in service to the present human evolutionary reality.
