the plus sign before the number of harmodynes does not signify in the ordinary sense it is a, positive

a negative force like negative electricity. Instead, the plus sign before the number of harmodynes

indicates that the psychokinetic power thus measured tends to work for the benefit of the individual.

And the minus sign before the number of discordynes indicates that the psychokinetic power thus

cusp (the 12th) has a power of 9.30, and that the difference for the whole house, or variation is .70. As

we found there were 19.55 zodiacal degrees in the house, the variation for each degree is .70 divided

by 19.55 or .036. As the distance Venus is from the cusp of the Asc. is 3.33°, to find its variation due to

distance from nearest house cusp we must multiply 3.33 by .036. This gives .12. However it is much

less work to do the multiplying first and the dividing afterwards. So we multiply 3.33 by .70 and get

2.33. Then we divide 2.33 by 19.55 which also gives us .12. Therefore:

cited the .12 is the variation from the weaker cusp embracing the 12th, the Asc., which has a power (as

common thought-cells one-half the power of its ruling planet, a sign in a house but not on the cusp is

only about one-half as powerful as if it were occupying a cusp and thus received the cusp resonance.

Thus a sign intercepted in a house--not touching a house cusp--has only one-fourth the power of its

ruling planet. Furthermore, if a sign has two rulers--as do Scorpio, Aquarius and Pisces--its power

must be ascertained from the average power of its two rulers; for Scorpio the average power of Mars

total power of a sign is ascertained by adding its unoccupied power (power of common thought-cells)

Dignity (see pdf)

However, as essential dignity is not due to the relation of one planet to another, the harmodynes or

discordynes of a planet due to essential dignity can most conveniently be recorded on the second line

to the right of BY HOUSE POS., in the column headed by the planet. On this second line under the

caption Asp't write Dig., and to the right on this same line, under the caption Harmodynes or Discordynes

write the number of harmodynes with a plus sign before it, or the number of discordynes with a minus

Saturn, Jupiter. Mars or Venus is involved in the aspect, the neutral aspects increase the power of the

planet, but do not influence its harmony or discord. Power which is neither harmonious nor discordant

is considered neutral. It increases the amount of work the thought-cells possessing it can do, adding

to the importance of the events or conditions attracted, but adding nothing to, and subtracting nothing

from, the fortune or misfortune of that which is attracted.

that a planet which by progression makes the conjunction with its birth-chart place has as much power

to bring events characteristic of it into the life as does some other planet of equal power which by

progression makes the conjunction with this birth-chart place. Observation further indicates that a

planet which has not yet moved beyond one degree from its birth-chart place, and has not reversed its

motion, does not have the effect of' a progressed conjunction or progressed parallel. But if before it

gets one degree from its birth-chart place, either in the zodiac or by declination, it reverses its mo-

tion--if direct at birth becoming retrograde or if retrograde becoming direct, or if moving south by

declination at birth, starting to move north, or if moving north by declination, starting to move south--

it has the full effect of a progressed conjunction. Thus in the chart of Elbert Benjamine, in 1949, Saturn

by major progression is both conjunction and parallel birth-chart Saturn, Uranus by major progression

is both conjunction and parallel birth-chart Uranus, Neptune by major progression is both conjunction

and parallel birth-chart Neptune, and Pluto by major progression is both conjunction and parallel birth-

chart Pluto.

or discord increases proportionally from 0 at this orb limit to its peak when the aspect is perfect. But a

fair percentage of major events characteristic of the planets involved and the houses they rule occur

when the major progressed aspect is 59' or 60' from perfect, More occur when the aspect is nearer

perfect. But our statistical studies show that enough of them occur when the progressed aspect is

near its one degree orb that a progressed aspect must have, not 0 power at the orb limit of 60' from

perfect, but ½ the power and ½ the harmony or discord it has when the aspect is perfect. And the

power and harmony or discord increase proportionally from ½ peak power and peak harmony or

discord at the 60' orb limit, to full power and full harmony or discord when the progressed aspect is

perfect.

each work for events characteristic of the planets involved; but usually require additional energy from

shorter-time progressed aspects to bring an event of significance into the life.

except through their influence as Rallying Forces, commonly each major progressed aspect stimu-

lates the thought-cells affected to work for a different and characteristic condition or event. The condi-

tion or event may add to the difficulty or favor indicated by other progressed aspects affecting the

same house, but commonly it is another phase of the matter, or a further development of conditions

and events past or present. Thus while the total power of a house on a given date may indicate the

total activity of the thought-cells concerned with this department of life, it is unlikely this total activity

relates to one event. Usually it indicates thought-cells working for a variety of events, the effort toward

or 5.64 harmodynes. Adding 12.16 to 5.64 gives the relative harmony of the progressed Venus termi-

nal as 17.80 harmodynes.

from aspects, has ½ of 35.65 or 17.83 discordynes, plus .50 discordynes due to being in the sign of its

inharmony, or 18.33 discordynes. Progressed Mars is a direct terminal, therefore subtracting the 18.33

discordynes from the 24.32 harmodynes of the progressed aspect gives the relative harmony of the

progressed Mars terminal as 5.99 harmodynes.

7.98 to 21.65 (birthchart Sun) gives the relative harmony of the birth-chart Sun terminal as 29.63

plus 1 discordyne due to Sun being in its detriment, or 11.83 discordynes. As it is a direct terminal,

adding 15.96 to 11.83 gives the relative harmony of the progressed Sun terminal As 27.79 discordynes.

1/14 the birthchart harmony of the Moon. To this sum algebraically add 3 times the peak harmony of

Moon has 11.09 harmodynes. 11.27 plus 11.09 gives 22.36. Dividing 11.27 (birthchart Venus) by 2

astrodynes. Multiplying 69.34 by .25 (Neptune in an angle) gives the peak power if it were a major

progressed aspect as 17.34 astrodynes. Dividing 17.34 by 365.25 gives the peak power of transiting

Neptune sesqui-square Sun p as .05 astrodynes. As this is a discordant aspect between neutral

planets, the peak discord of transiting Neptune sesqui-square Sun p is .05 discordynes.

fortune or misfortune at all. But it is highly important as indicating the peeks of power of the major

progressed aspects, and thus in the timing of the events they bring; for an important event indicated by

a major progressed aspect never occurs--as our statistical research shows--until the major pro-

gressed aspect indicative of it is thus reenforced by a minor progressed aspect. And the resistance of

environment remaining the same, the more the major progressed aspect is reenforced by minor pro-

gressed aspects--often there are a number of minor progressed aspects reenforcing a single major

progressed aspect at the same time, each stepping up its power by the percentage shortly to be

indicated--the more likely the event will be to happen, if it has not already taken place under a previ-

ous minor reenforcement peak.

square Moon r when perfect, as previously ascertained, is 16.51 astrodynes, Multiplying 16.51 by 16

gives 264.16. Dividing 264.16 by 120 gives 2.20. Subtracting 2.20 from 16.51 gives the power of Sun

lacking 13'of inconjunct Jupiter r. The power of M.C. inconjunct Jupiter r when perfect, as previously

ascertained, is 10.68 astrodynes. Multiplying 10.68 by 13 gives 138.84. Dividing 138.0 by 120 gives

1.16. Subtracting 1.16 from 10.68 gives the power of the M.C. inconjunct Jupiter ron Sept. 5, 1949, as

9.52 astrodynes. The harmony is 4.76 harmodynes.

Mercury inconjunct Jupiter r on Sept. 5, 1949, as 1.43 astrodynes. Adding 9.52 to 1.43 gives the

aspect is from perfect and divide the product by 120. Then subtract the number so found from the

number previously found that would represent the minor progressed peak if perfect on that day. The

number thus ascertained is the reenforcement power of the aspect on the given date. The reenforced

power of the major progressed aspect on this date is obtained by adding this reenforcement power to

the power of the unreenforced major progressed aspect on this date.

ously calculated, is 15.96 astrodynes, and its discord is 15.96 discordynes. The Table of Progressed

Aspect Percentages shows that for a sesqui-square involving birth-chart Moon in a succedent house

25% is used. Multiplying 15.96 by .25 gives 3.99 astrodynes. As the minor progressed aspect on the

given date is 9' from perfect, we multiply 3.99 by 9 and it gives 35.91. Dividing 35.91 by 120 gives .30.

Subtracting .30 from 3.99 gives the power of minor progressed Neptune sesqui-square Moon r on

Aug. 29, 1949, to reenforce major progressed Sun semi-square Moon r as 3.69 astrodynes. Adding

3.69 to 15.96 gives the power of major progressed Sun semi-square Moon r on Aug. 29, 1949, as

reenforced by minor progressed Neptune sesqui-square Moon r, as 19.65 astrodynes.

used. Multiplying 9.43 by .15 gives 1.41 astrodynes. As the minor progressed aspect on the given date

is 33' from perfect, multiplying 1.41 by 33 gives 46.53. Dividing 46.53 by 120 gives .39. Subtracting .39

from 1.41 gives the power of Mercury inconjunct Jupiter r on Aug. 29, 1949, to reenforce major pro-

gressed M.C. inconjunct Jupiter r as 1.02 astrodynes. Adding 1.02 to 9.43 gives the power of major

progressed M.C. inconjunct Jupiter r on August 29, 1949, as reenforced by minor progressed Mercury

inconjunct Jupiter r, as 10.45 astrodynes. The harmony is still 4.72 harmodynes.

several months usually is of little significance. In a similar way people get conditioned to long periods

of either harmonious or discordant inner-plane weather, and events of importance during these peri-

ods only occur when there are accessory weather influences. But should it be desired to know the total

influence of a progressed aspect--the average inner-plane weather during the whole period it is within

the one effective degree of orb--this can readily be ascertained.

may be ascertained by multiplying its peak power by .75. This average daily power multiplied by the

number of days, months or years the aspect is within one degree of perfect, gives the number of

astrodyne-days, astrodyne-months, or astrodyne-years representing the total effect of its power on

the life.

discordynes of a progressed aspect may be ascertained by multiplying its peak harmony or discord by

.75. This average daily harmony or discord multiplied by the number of days, months, or years the

aspect is within one degree of perfect, gives the number of harmodyne-or-discordyne-days, harmodyne-

or-discordyne-months, or harmodyne-or-discordyne-years representing the total effect of its harmony

or discord on the life.

10.78 by 2 gives 21.56 astrodyne-months. or 21 astrodyne-months, 16.80 astrodyne-days. Multiplying

10.78 by 12 gives 129.36 astrodyne -days. 29.22 plus 16.80 plus 129.36 gives 175.38 astrodyne-

days, or (dividing by 30) 5 astrodyne-months, 25.38 astrodyne-days. 5 astrodyne-months, 25.38

astrodyne-days, plus 21 astrodyne-months gives 26 astrodyne-months, 25.38 astrodyne-days, or 2

astrodyne-years, 2 astrodyne-months, 25.38 astrodyne-days. Adding the 2 astrodyne-years, 2

astrodyne-months, 25.38 astrodyne-days to the 388 astrodyne-years, gives the total power of the

aspect as 390 astrodyne-years, 2 astrodyne-months, 25.38 astrodyne-days.
