Predictive Techniques in Ancient Astrology and the Newest Research Results

Some topics:

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

THE NEWEST!:

-----------------

 In 2015-2016 going through the untranslated Latin and Arabic text

The Secret Book of Hermes on the Spiritual World (Antimaquis),

I deciphered several completely new doctrines of Hermes:

 

The riddle of the seven most-happy, most-lucky, most-kingly degrees of the Zodiac!

Abu Mashar one thousand years ago wrote which exactly are  these 7 most-kingly degrees.

But did he mean the tropical zodiac or the sidereal?  And Why exactly these degrees are the most-noble and lucky of all?!

Did the ancient Greek authors mention them and what exactly did they write? 

As we will see, this doctrine is so old that even the ancients themselves have forgotten the real reason of the kingship associated with these seven degrees!

With this doctrine we can learn the exact spiritual level of everyone.

More than this:  Hermes has enshrined in this amazing teaching the answers of several very important questions.

 

The connection between the Planets, the Organs of the Body and the Feelings residing in them.

 

The ALmuten of the chart and the ALmuten of the country- comparison according to untranslated Latin text of Hermes.

 

Which planetrs rule which countries and how to tell the fate of the different people.

 

Hermes'  Map of the human Soul 

Each of the 7 planets has  7 spirits.

4 of them are incarnated  (incorporati)  on earth, and 3 are most sublime not-incarnated on earth ('subtilissimi).

When a human is born he is born with a soul of two sections:

perishable/sensual section (meros aisthetikon) and eternal/divine section (meros noeron).

Each of the 7 Planets may send none, one, two, three or all its 4 'incorporati' to the 'corporal' part of the soul of the new-born.  Those spirits (spiritus) enter the soul of the baby in the image of Animals through the first inhaled air and to the heart.  All 4 incarnated spirits are in fact different Animals.  There are 28 Animals altogether (7 planets times 4).  In a soul may enter all 28 Animals or any number between 0 and 28.  It all depends on the Sky in the moment of the first breath.  Hermes gives the rules how to compute this.The same applies to the 21 sublime spirits which go to the 'eternal'section of the soul.

Usually only 1, 2 or 3 Animals rule ech of us.  These are the strongest and they take turn on ruling us.  Each may rule one or more moments of time.  Usually these are months and years.  In rare cases only one Animal rules someone his whole life.

Thus, a soul may end up loaded with all 28 Animals and 21 DIvine Principles or ... indeed ... a soul may contain only several Spirits or nothing at all.  The so called 'empty souls'.

Which are the Animals of each Planet and How to compute on a chart Which of these Animals are in the native?

Detailed exposition Deo Volente will be offered at the second-level Seminar!
