Chapter 6
Diagnosis and Treatment
FROM the emphasis placed on environmental facilities to assist or hinder the
thought-cells in bringing the physical events they desire to pass it will be apparent
that, while these lessons present what we believe to be the most effective of all
non-physical methods of treatment, there is no intent to disparage supplementing
stellar healing with physical methods.
It is quite certain there are cases in which the use of chemicals is imperative. Surgery,
at times, must be resorted to if the life is to be saved. Home remedies of a wide variety
are known to be effective in certain complaints, and good nursing, more frequently
than not, is a great help. Osteopathic, chiropractic, massage, electric, physiotherapy
and other types of treatment often yield excellent results.
Each method may provide the facilities that enable the health-seeking thought-cells
to restore health, or that place obstacles too great to be surmounted in the path of the
disease-seeking thought-cells. But to insure that the health will not again be impaired
when the environment is once more less favorable, or when the disease-seeking
thought-cells are afforded more power through a progressed aspect, the desires of the
thought-cells responsible for the disease must be changed. Furthermore, those using
any healing method can attain greater success if they will precede treatment with
stellar diagnosis.
But it should be pointed out that a diploma from a medical college does not make a
doctor in the sense that its possessor then is able to cure disease. Neither does a
certificate from The Church of Light that he has passed the examination on stellar
healing make of its possessor a stellar healer. The award merely shows, in either case,
that the individual has mastered certain studies. It requires the development of a
technique by one who is naturally fitted for it to make a stellar healer. Those who are
not real stellar healers cannot become so by the possession of a piece of paper; and
those who are can be known by the regained health of their patients.
Only accredited colleges, capitalized for a large sum of money and teaching the
subjects authorized by legally recognized academic standards can bestow academic
degrees. The Brotherhood of Light lessons were written, and the information they
contain is being taught, because these facts essential to the welfare of mankind
cannot be learned in universities. They cover subjects which as yet are not
background image
recognized by academic authorities. Thus all should understand that passing
examinations, such as are required to be initiated into the various degrees of The
Religion of the Stars, carries no legal privilege whatever, nor does it warrant the use
of letters of any kind after the individual's name.
This explanation is made to make it clear to anyone who passes examinations on this
course that NO LEGAL PRIVILEGE either to diagnose or heal is granted thereby.
Each state has its own laws regulating the practice of the healing art. In some states it
is forbidden for any, except those passing the requirements of a State Board of
Examiners, to prescribe so much as a glass of water, or to give any opinions as to the
nature of an illness, or even to place the hands on a person for healing purposes. So
long as such laws exist no church or school can defy them.
The privilege to practice either stellar diagnosis or stellar healing cannot be granted
by The Church of Light, but must be obtained by compliance with the state laws
which govern drugless healing. Those who have natural ability as healers and wish to
practice stellar healing should make themselves familiar with the drugless healing
laws of the state in which they expect to practice, and should get a license under those
laws to practice some form of healing.
The Use of Passes
--When the needs of the patient require it, passes may be made a supplementary part
of the General Treatment. Passes over the patient not merely facilitate the Row of
electromagnetic energy from the healer's fingers, thus charging the patient more
thoroughly with it, but they are of particular value in directing the trend of the nerve
currents, and consequently the blood supply of the body. The electromagnetic
currents, and the blood supply, tend to follow the direction of the passes.
Such passes are made over the patient's body lengthwise, either from the head down,
or from the feet up. While making them the hands are moved within a few inches
from actual contact with the body. Passes may also be made over local areas to
redistribute nerve currents and blood supply. When a local area is thus treated,
however, it is somewhat more effective to use gentle strokings with the fingers, as the
actual physical contact facilitates the electromagnetic energy reaching the patient.
To soothe, draw the blood from the head, and relax the patient, the passes should be
from the head toward the feet. As the nerve currents and blood are withdrawn from
the brain, its activities subside, the patient becomes drowsy, and if these downward
passes are continued, he will fall asleep. Such passes should be slow and gentle; and
if there is special need for the patient to rest, talking to him in a soothing monotone
will assist putting him to sleep.
background image
When the patient has been in such pain that he has been unable to sleep, or his nerves
are such that sleep flies from him, instead of the morphine used by the medical
school, the stellar healer uses soothing downward passes accompanied by low
monotone talking, in which the patient is told, from time to time, that he is drowsy,
that he is going to sleep, and that the sleep will be restful and refreshing.
That is, just as the healer mentally tells certain cells and organs what they are to do,
when treating them, so when he wishes the patient to get a refreshing sleep, he tells
the patient, either mentally or in the vocal manner indicated, that he is to relax, sleep.
and refresh himself.
If, however, instead of being too high-strung and nervous to sleep, the patient is
drowsy and mentally inactive, the passes should be made up toward the head. Such
passes are stimulating, and instead of being made slowly and soothingly, they should
be completed in rather rapid vigorous movements. The effect is to cause the nerve
currents and blood supply to flow strongly to the brain. This stimulates brain activity,
overcomes drowsiness, and routes lethargy.
Whether or not passes are used, the redistribution of the blood supply due to the
electromagnetic energies imparted to him may cause the patient to feel decidedly
dizzy immediately after treatment. Both the added electromagnetic energy to give
new life, and the changed circulation to cause the blood to flow where most needed,
in such cases, are just what is needed. But the patient, feeling dizzy, may be alarmed.
Where such dizziness is felt the cause should be explained, and a place provided
where the patient can rest for an hour after treatment before moving about much.
Such a rest enables the circulation to become properly adjusted and permits the
dizziness to disappear.
For the same reason, that the circulation both of the electromagnetic energies and the
blood are disturbed. it is often better for the patient to refrain from eating for an hour
after the treatment. If the stomach is filled immediately after the treatment, blood and
energy elsewhere diverted to healing purposes may not be sufficient in the region of
the digestive tract to enable the food to be properly handled. But after an hour no such
disturbance of the normal functions is apt to remain.
The First Step Toward Healing
--The first thing to be done is to erect the birth-chart of the patient and calculate the
progressed aspects for the time he became ill. The progressed aspects will indicate
the particular birth-chart predisposition which has been given enough additional
energy to enable it to attract its type of disease.
A familiarity with the birth-chart and progressed constants of the 160 diseases given
in this course, together with the physical symptoms, should enable the healer to
determine both the nature of the disease and the thought-cells whose unusual
activities, due to one or more progressed aspect, are the chief inner-plane cause.
background image
An important objective in stellar diagnosis is to determine the thought-cell group
whose discord is thus chiefly responsible for attracting the disease. As each planet
when discordant tends to manifest in diseases which are characteristic of it, as
indicated by their organ and function rulership given in Chapter 03, and more
specifically in the constants of the 160 diseases considered in this course, this
commonly is not difficult to do.
The Specific Stellar Treatment
--The specific stellar treatment commonly embraces three objectives in the
following order of importance:
1. THE DESIRES OF THE THOUGHT-CELLS CHIEFLY RESPONSIBLE
FOR THE DISEASE MUST BE FAVORABLY CHANGED.
To do this,
planetary energies selected for their ability so to change these thought-cells that they
will desire and work for health are tuned in on and delivered to the zone of the body
occupied by the birth-chart planet or progressed planet mapping the responsible
thought-cells. As indicated by the constants involved, sometimes more than one
dynamic structure needs treatment. The zone is indicated by the zodiacal sign in
which the planet mapping the discordant thought-cells is found. To change their
desires, in general the planetary antidotes given in Chapter 05 are employed; but
more specific instructions, in which other planetary energies are used to supplement
these in treating some diseases, are given in the lessons to follow.
Whether the treatment is for the purpose of healing the body, healing defects in the
character, correcting domestic discords, improving the finances, gaining merited
honor, or healing breaches in friendship, the major portion of the specific stellar
treatment should be devoted to changing the desires of the dynamic thought-cells
chiefly responsible for the difficulty through delivering to the zone where the planet
actually mapping them is located the proper planetary energy charged with the
definite thought that they will change their desires and work for that which the healer
demands.
Through the principle of resonance, if these dynamic thought-cells change their
desires, the common thought-cells mapped by the signs the same planet rules will
similarly change their desires. And if the zone of the physical body, or the department
of life, has been affected adversely by these dynamic thought-cells radiating energy
as a Rallying Force, this Rallying Force will be altered when their desires are
changed.
2. THE DESIRES OF THE THOUGHT-CELLS OF THE ZONE WHERE
THE DISEASE MANIFESTS MUST BE FAVORABLY CHANGED.
Commonly when the disease manifests in some particular area, the planet mapping
the thought-cells chiefly responsible for the disease also rules the sign covering the
zone where the disease manifests. By treating the zone where the responsible planet
background image
is located, through the principle of resonance the desires of these common
thought-cells also are favorably changed. But even so, when the disease manifests in
some special region--such as the head, heart, stomach, bowels or feet--it is well to
give this zone about half as long a stellar treatment as is given to the dynamic
thought-cells elsewhere located.
If, as is sometimes the case, an afflicted planet in this zone contributes to the disease,
as indicated by its constants, the thought-cells mapped by this planet should receive
treatment. But if a planet in the sign does not contribute to the disease, or if no planet
is in the sign--people may have headache with no birth-chart or progressed planet in
Aries, may have diphtheria with no birth-chart or progressed planet in Taurus, may
have stomach trouble with no birthchart or progressed planet in Cancer--the
planetary antidote for the planet ruling the sign should be applied directly to the
common thought-cells at the zone head, neck, stomach, etc.--where the body
`disease is present.
3. THE DESIRES OF THE THOUGHT-CELLS OF THE HOUSE
CONSTANTS OF THE DIFFICULTY SHOULD BE GIVEN HARMONIOUS
STRENGTH.
In addition to the thought-cells chiefly responsible for the difficulty,
and those where a body disease manifests, there are always certain house constants.
We find, for instance, that in all cases of body illness there is a progressed aspect to
the ruler of the first house and a progressed aspect to the ruler of the sixth house. In
marriage difficulties there is always a progressed aspect to the ruler of the seventh
house. In employment difficulties there is always a progressed aspect to the ruler of
the tenth house and a progressed aspect to the ruler of the sixth house. In money loss
there is always a progressed aspect to the ruler of the second house.
Whatever the nature of the difficulty the treatment is to correct, the zone, or zones, of
the astral body covered by the house constant, or constants, should receive brief
specific stellar treatment. The treatment should be applied to the zone, or zones,
which are the constant, or constants.
Other things being equal, a birth-chart planet in a house has twice the power to
influence it as a progressed planet in the same house or the planet ruling its cusp. But
if at birth the progressed planet or the planet ruling the house cusp had more than
twice as many astrodynes as the birth-chart planet in the house, it would have more
power to influence the house than the birth-chart planet in it. In selecting the
planetary and thought energy with which to treat a house constant, therefore, the one
should be selected which will most benefit the thought-cells mapped by the house.
For a fifteen minute specific stellar treatment about eight minutes can be given to
treating the dynamic stellar structures chiefly responsible for the disease, about four
minutes may be devoted to treating the zone where the disease manifests, if it
manifests in some particular area, and about three minutes may be devoted to treating
the zone or zones which are the house constant, or constants, of the difficulty. These
are mapped by the signs on the first and sixth houses if it is a body disease.
background image
After tuning in on the planetary energy selected, as explained in Chapter 04, there
are three methods of reaching the thought-cells of a selected zone with the planetary
energy reinforced by thought, the third being merely a combination of the other two.
The direct method is to place the hands over the zone where the thought-cells are
located the desires of which are to be changed, or better still to place one hand over
the zone and the other hand on the opposite side of the limb or body. The indirect
method is to place the hands close together along either side of the backbone where
the nerves branch off which reach the zone being treated. Where these spinal nerves
are located is given in Chapter 03. The combination method, which is probably
the most effective way of reaching the compartment in the astral body where the
discord is located, is to place one hand directly on the zone of the physical body
where the discord is located, and to place the other hand on the back where the nerve
leaves the spine which leads to the zone, and to send the planetary energy over the
electromagnetic current thus established.
The healer tuned in on the selected planetary energy, and having in mind the
determination that the patient shall have perfect health, should mentally command
the thought-cells being treated to become harmonious and to desire and work for the
health of the patient. He should saturate the zone being treated with the astral color of
the planetary energy being used. As indicated in Chapter 04, the color must flow,
along with his electromagnetism, to the thought-cells, delivering to them both the
selected planetary energy and the commands of the healer.
After the specific stellar treatment has been given, it is well to finish with the three
final stations of the general health treatment (Chapter 05).
Calculating the Independent
Power and Harmony or Discord of
Minor Progressed Aspects and
Transit Aspects
--The independent power and harmony or discord of a minor progressed aspect may
be calculated exactly as if it were the power and harmony or discord of a major
progressed aspect, except that the results so obtained should then be divided by 27.3.
The peak power of 16 such independent minor progressed aspects in the John
Edwards chart is given in the table on page 163 at the front of this lesson.
The power and harmony or discord of a transit aspect may be calculated exactly as if
it were the power and harmony or discord of a major progressed aspect, except that
the results so obtained should then be divided by 365.25. The peak power of 11 such
transit aspects in the John Edwards chart is given in the table on page 163 at the front
of this lesson.
background image
Calculating the Independent
Power and Harmony or Discord of
a Minor Progressed Aspect or a
Transit Aspect on a Given Date
--First find the peak power of the aspect. Then find how many minutes the aspect is
from perfect. Multiply one-half the peak power of the aspect by the number of
minutes the aspect is from perfect and divide the product by 60. This gives the
variation in power due to the number of minutes the aspect is from perfect. Subtract
the number so found from the peak power. The resulting number is the power of the
aspect in astrodynes on the given date. Use this power, the nature of the aspect and
the nature of the planets making the aspect to determine the harmony or discord
exactly as if it were a major progressed aspect, except that if at the time the planets are
in mutual reception instead of adding 2.50 harmodynes, only .09 harmodynes should
be added for a minor progressed aspect, and only .01 harmodyne should be added for
a transit aspect.
The difference between the degree and minute occupied by the planet as shown on
the given date in the ephemeris and the degree and minute of the perfect aspect, is the
distance a transit aspect is from perfect. The ephemeris positions of the planets on
March 19, 1941, are given in the table on page 162 at the front of this lesson.
To find how far from perfect a minor progressed aspect is on a given date, if the Lunar
Constant is minus, add it to the number of the month and day of the given date, but if
the Lunar Constant is plus, subtract it from the number of the month and day of the
given date. The result will be the sign and degree occupied by the minor progressed
Moon on the given date.
In the ephemeris find the Minor Progression Date representing the birthday in the
calendar year in which the given date occurs. Then move ahead in the ephemeris if
the date is after the birthday, and back in the ephemeris if the date is before the
birthday, to the ephemeris day on which the minor progressed Moon is shown in the
sign and degree found for the given date. By proportion or logarithms calculate the
degree and minute occupied by the planet when the minor progressed Moon is in the
sign and degree it occupies on the given date. The difference between the degree and
minute thus found and the degree and minute of the perfect aspect is the distance the
aspect is from perfect.
In the John Edwards chart to find the minor progressed positions on March 19, 1941,
we first multiply 27.3 by 21 (years after birth) which gives us 573.3 days after birth.
Dividing 573.3 by 365 gives us 1 year, with 208.3 days over. Dividing 208.3 by 30
gives 6 months, with 28.3 days over. To March 19, 1920, add 1 year, 6 months, 28.3
days and it gives the approximate Minor Progression Date as October 17, 1921. On
this date the Moon is in Aries; but as on the Minor Progression Date the Moon must
be in the same degree and minute as at birth, we move back to October 13 where the
Moon is 10 Pisces 32. Using logarithms to calculate the interval, we find on October
background image
13, 1921, the Moon reaches 13 Pisces 29, where it was at birth, in a plus EGMT
Interval of 5h. 52m. We therefore calculate the positions of the other planets also for
the EGMT Interval of 5h. 52m.
The birth-chart positions of the planets in the John Edwards chart are given on page 4
at the front of Chapter 01. The major progressed positions of the planets on March 19, 1941,
are given on page 130 at the front of Chapter 05. The minor progressed positions of the
planets on March 19, 1941, are given on page 162 at the front of this chapter. By comparing
these positions with the birth-chart and major progressed positions it will be found that
minor progressed Sun is 36' distant from the perfect semi-square of major
progressed Saturn. The peak power of the aspect is .35. One-half of .35 is .18.
Multiplying .18 by 36 (distance) gives 6.48. Dividing 6.48 by 60 gives .11. .35 (peak)
minus .11 gives the independent power of the aspect on March 19, 1941, as .24
astrodynes. Dividing .24 by 2 (Saturn) gives .12. .24 plus .12 gives the discord of the
aspect on the mentioned date as .36 discordynes.
Minor progressed Moon is 59' from perfect parallel major progressed Venus. As a
progressed aspect from the Moon is one-seventh the power of the same aspect
between other planets, the peak power of the aspect is .09. One-half of .09 is .05.
Multiplying .05 by 59 gives 2.95. Dividing 2.95 by 60 gives .05. .09 (peak) minus .05
gives the independent power of the aspect on March 19, 1941, as .04 astrodynes.
Dividing .04 by 4 (Venus) gives the harmony of the aspect at this time as .01
harmodyne.
Minor progressed Uranus lacks 39' of the perfect parallel with major progressed
Uranus. The peak power of the aspect is .55. One-half of .55 is .28. Multiplying .28
by 39 gives 10.92. 10.92 divided by 60 gives .18. .55 minus .18 gives the independent
power of the aspect on March 19, 1941, as .37 astrodynes. Relative to harmony it is
neutral.
The independent power and harmony or discord of each of the 16 minor progressed
aspects within orb of an aspect to Venus, Saturn or Uranus on March 19, 1941, in the
John Edwards Chart are given on page 163 at the front of this lesson.
The transit positions of the planets on March 19, 1941, are given on page 162 of this
lesson. By comparing these positions with the birth-chart and major progressed
positions in the John Edwards chart it will be found that transiting Mercury lacks 53'
of perfect conjunction with birth-chart Venus. The peak power of the aspect is .06.
One-half of .06 is .03 Multiplying .03 by 53 gives 1.59. Dividing 1.59 by 60 gives
.03. .06 (peak) minus .03 gives the power of the aspect on March 19, 1941, as .03
astrodynes. Dividing .03 by 4 (Venus) gives the harmony of the aspect as .01
harmodyne.
background image
Mars lacks 8' of the perfect sesqui-square of progressed Saturn. The peak power of
the aspect is .03. One-half of .03 is .02. Multiplying .02 by 8 gives .16. .16 divided by
60 gives less than .01 to be subtracted from the peak power. Therefore the
independent power of the aspect on March 19, 1941, is .03 astrodynes. One-half
(Saturn) of .03 is .02. One-fourth (Mars) of .03 is .01. .03 plus .02 plus .01 gives the
discord of the aspect as .06 discordynes.
M.C. lacks 34' of the perfect parallel with progressed Venus. The peak power is .07.
One-half of .07 is .04. Multiplying .04 by 34 gives 1.36. Dividing 1.36 by 60 gives
.02 to be subtracted from the peak power. Therefore the independent power of the
aspect on March 19, 1941, is .05 astrodynes. Dividing .05 by 4 (Venus) gives the
harmony of the aspect as .01 harmodynes.
The independent power and harmony or discord of each of the 11 transit aspects
within orb of an aspect to Venus, Saturn or Uranus on March 19, 1941, in the John
Edwards chart is given on page 163 at the front of this lesson.
Calculating the Reinforcement
Power of a Minor Progressed
Aspect
--Observation shows that a minor progressed aspect has two distinct types of
influence. Its independent power and harmony or discord tends to attract conditions
or an event of minor importance consistent with this power and harmony or discord.
But in addition to this independent power and harmony or discord, if the minor
progressed aspect is to any one of the four terminals (if it has four terminals) of a
major progressed aspect, it also markedly steps up the power of the major progressed
aspect. So far as effects are concerned, it seems to operate on the major progressed
power as an automobile induction coil does in stepping up the battery current to
sufficient voltage to afford the sparks necessary for ignition. And for a major
progressed aspect to gain enough power to attract a major event it would seem that it
is as necessary for it to be thus reinforced by a minor progressed aspect to one of its
four terminals, as it is for an automobile to have its battery current stepped up by an
induction coil to get satisfactory ignition.
So far as our statistical studies have one, this reinforcement effect seems to have no
influence whatever on the harmony or discord of the major progressed aspect. Nor,
so far as we have yet been able to ascertain, is this stepping up influence present when
a minor progressed planet which is the same as one of the four customary major
progressed planetary terminals, makes an aspect to a birth-chart or major progressed
planet which is not one of the four customary major progressed planetary terminals.
But when a minor progressed planet makes an aspect to one of the four planetary
terminals of a major progressed aspect, this stepping up effect is always present.
Usually during the period in which a major progressed aspect is less than one degree
from perfect there are several shorter periods in which a minor progressed aspect
forms to one of the four terminals affected by the major progressed aspect. Each of
background image
these minor progressed aspects will then usually coincide with a minor event of the
power and harmony or discord characteristic of the independent influence of the
minor progressed aspect. But also, as a rule, whatever major event takes place will
coincide in time with one of these periods in which one of the four terminals affected
by the major progressed aspect also receives an aspect by minor progression.
The sub-major progressed aspects of the Moon, while adding accessory energy, do
not have this stepping up effect. Every progressed aspect--major, minor or
transit--involving one of the two planets of the major progressed aspect, adds
accessory energy to the signs and houses ruled by these two planets. But as a rule a
major event takes place only when there is a major progressed aspect involving a
planet ruling the house, which at the time is reinforced by a minor progressed aspect
to one of the four terminals affected by the major progressed aspect.
What seems to take place is that a minor progressed aspect to one of the four
terminals affected by a major progressed aspect, without influencing the harmony or
discord of the major progressed aspect, steps up whatever power the major
progressed aspect has at that time by the same percentage a similar major-progressed
aspect steps up the birth-chart power of the planets involved.
During the time a major progressed planet is within orb of aspect, there usually are
several short periods when the minor reinforcement effect produces lower or higher
peaks. Some of these peaks have less power than the peak influence of the major
progressed aspect; but if not far removed from the culmination of the major
progressed aspect power, a single minor progressed aspect--or even at the edge of
orb of the major progressed aspect, several minor progressed aspects--involving
one of the major progressed aspect terminals, may generate a power that towers far
above the peak indicated by the major progressed aspect alone.
Of course, as the actual event or events produced by the influence of the major
progressed aspect is dependent not merely upon the activity of the thought-cells
involved, but also upon the facility of the environment, such major event, or events,
as does transpire often takes place at a time other than when the highest peak is
present. But, apparently with an occasional exception, it does take place on one of the
peaks of power influenced by the reinforcement effect of a minor progressed aspect.
This much has a sound basis of extensive observation. But, admittedly, there is a
great deal to learn about this reinforcement effect and the effect of accessory
progressed aspects in general, as well as the details of how Rallying Forces operate.
Such knowledge must be ascertained through statistical research. And when it is
ascertained, not only will prediction be made more precise, but Control of Life will
be greatly facilitated.
To ascertain the reinforcement effect of a minor progressed aspect, the power of the
given major progressed aspect must be calculated for the date on which it is desired to
know how many astrodynes are present. This may be the date on which the
reinforcing minor- progressed aspect is perfect, or on some other date during the time
it is within one degree of perfect.
background image
Calculating the Peak
Reinforcement Power of a Minor
Progressed Aspect
--RULE: Find the power of the major progressed aspect on that date. Then proceed
exactly as if the minor progressed aspect were a major progressed aspect and this
power were the average birth-chart power of the planets involved in the aspect. If one
of the minor progressed terminals is identical with one of the two terminals of the
major progressed aspect, the number of astrodynes thus found is the number due to
the reinforcement effect of the minor progressed aspect. If neither of the minor
progressed terminals is identical with one of the two terminals of the major
progressed aspect, the number of astrodynes thus found divided by 2 is the number
due to the reinforcement effect of the minor progressed aspect. The peak power on
the day the minor progressed aspect is perfect is obtained by adding this
reinforcement power to the power of the unreinforced major progressed aspect on
that date.
In the John Edwards chart minor progressed Sun makes the perfect opposition of the
major progressed Sun on March 10, 1941, thus reinforcing each major progressed
aspect in which at the time the Sun is involved. Using the method explained in Chapter 05
we find the power of major progressed Sun semi-square birth-chart Uranus
on March 10 to be 4.87 astrodynes. As Sun is in angle the decimal is .75. Multiplying
4.87 by .75 gives 3.65. 4.87 plus 3.65 (reinforcement) gives the peak as 8.52
astrodynes.
Minor progressed Uranus makes the perfect opposition to birth-chart Saturn July 2,
1940, thus reinforcing each major progressed aspect in which Saturn is involved. On
July 2, 1940, the power of major progressed Mars sextile progressed Saturn is 13.10
astrodynes. As minor Uranus and birth-chart Saturn are in cadent houses the decimal
is .40. Multiplying 13.10 by .40 gives 5.24. Dividing 5.24 by 2 (as the minor is to an
indirect terminal) gives 2.62. 13.10 plus 2.62 gives the peak as 15.72 astrodynes.
Minor progressed M.C. makes the perfect parallel to progressed Saturn March 19,
1941, thus reinforcing each major progressed aspect in which Saturn is involved. On
March 19, 1941, the power of major progressed Saturn sextile birth-chart Pluto is
16.30 astrodynes. As minor M.C. is in an angle the decimal is .60. Multiplying 16.30
by .60 gives 9.78. 16.30 plus 9.78 gives the peak as 26.08 astrodynes.
On the same date the power of major progressed Mars parallel birth-chart Saturn is
21.05. Multiplying 21.05 by 60 gives 12.63. Dividing 12.63 by 2 (as the minor is to
an indirect terminal) gives 6.32. 21.05 plus 6.32 gives the peak as 27.37 astrodynes.
Minor progressed Sun makes the perfect sesqui-square with major progressed
Uranus on March 11, 1941. On March 11, 1941, the power of major progressed Mars
trine progressed Uranus was 12.13 astrodynes. As minor progressed Sun is in an
background image
angle the decimal is .30. Multiplying 12.13 by .30 gives 3.64. 12.13 plus 3.64 gives
the peak as 15.77 astrodynes.
Calculating the Reinforcement
Power of a Minor Progressed
Aspect on a Given Date
--RULE: Calculate the reinforcement power of the minor progressed aspect as if it
were perfect on that day. Then, as if it were a major progressed aspect, multiply
one-half the power so found by the number of minutes the minor progressed aspect is
from perfect and divide the product by 60. Subtract the number so found from the
number that would represent the minor progressed aspect peak if perfect on that day.
The number so found is the reinforcement power of the aspect in astrodynes on the
given date. The peak power on this date is obtained by adding this reinforcement
power to the power of the unreinforced major progressed aspect on this date.
The major progressed power of each of the 21 major progressed aspects on March 19,
1941, involving Saturn, Uranus or Venus and thus influencing the second house in
the John Edwards chart is given on page 130 at the front of Chapter 05. Let us see
how some of these are reinforced on the same date by minor progressed aspects.
Major progressed Sun semi-square birth-chart Uranus on this date has 4.72
astrodynes. Consulting the birth-chart, and the minor progressed positions on page
162 of this lesson, shows that minor progressed Sun is 45' from perfect opposition major
progressed Sun. As progressed Sun is in an angle the decimal is .75. Multiplying 4.72
(power of major aspect) by .75 gives the reinforcement peak as 3.54 astrodynes.
Dividing 3.54 by 2 gives 1.77. Multiplying 1.77 by 45 (distance from perfect) gives
79.65. Dividing 79.65 by 60 gives 1.33. 3.54 minus 1.33 gives the power of the minor
progressed aspect to reinforce major progressed Sun semi-square birth-chart Uranus
on March 19, 1941, as 2.21 astrodynes. Minor progressed Jupiter on this date is 9'
from parallel birth-chart Sun. As Sun and Jupiter are in cadent houses the decimal is
.55. Multiplying 4.72 (power of major aspect) by .55 gives the reinforcement peak as
2.60 astrodynes. Dividing 2.60 by 2 gives 1.30. Multiplying 1.30 by 9 (distance from
perfect) gives 11.70. Dividing 11.70 by 60 gives .20. 2.60 minus .20 gives 2.40. But
as birth-chart Sun is an indirect terminal (major aspect is from progressed Sun) we
divide 2.40 by 2. This gives the power of the minor progressed aspect to reinforce
major progressed Sun semi-square birth-chart Uranus on March 19, 1941, as 1.20
astrodynes.

On March 19, 1941, major progressed Saturn sextile birth-chart Pluto has 16.30
astrodynes. On the same date minor progressed Sun is 36' from perfect semi-square
progressed Saturn. As minor progressed Sun is in an angle the decimal is .30.
Multiplying 16.30 by .30 gives the reinforcement peak as 4.89 astrodynes. Dividing
4.89 by 2 gives 2.45 Multiplying 2.45 by 36 (distance from perfect) gives 88.20
Dividing 88.20 by 60 gives 1.47. 4.89 minus 1.47 gives the power of the minor
progressed aspect to reinforce major progressed Saturn sextile birth-chart Pluto on
March 19, 1941, as 3.42 astrodynes.
On March 19, 1941 major progressed Saturn trine progressed Asc. has 9.24
astrodynes. On the same date minor progressed Uranus is 35' from perfect
opposition birth-chart Saturn. As these planets are in cadent houses the decimal is
.40. Multiplying 9.24 by .40 gives the reinforcement peak as 3.70. Dividing 3.70 by 2
gives 1.85. Multiplying 1.85 by 35 (distance from perfect) gives 64.75. Dividing
64.75 by 60 gives 1.08. Subtracting 1.08 from 3.70 gives 2.62. As birth-chart Saturn
is an indirect terminal we divide 2.62 by 2. This gives the power of the minor
progressed aspect to reinforce major progressed Saturn trine progressed Asc. on
March- 19, 1941, as 1.31 astrodynes.
On March 19,1941, minor progressed Jupiter is 46' from perfect square progressed
Asc. As progressed Asc. is in an angle the decimal is .50. Multiplying 9.24 by 50
gives the reinforcement peak as 4.62 astrodynes. Dividing 4.62 by 2 gives 2.31.
Multiplying 2.31 by 46 (distance from perfect) gives 106.26. 106.26 divided by 60
gives 1.77. 2.85 minus 1.77 gives the power of the minor progressed aspect to
reinforce major progressed Saturn trine progressed Asc. on March 19, 1941, as 2.85
astrodynes.
The total power of a major progressed aspect is the sum of the power of the
unreinforced aspect and the power of all the reinforcing minor progressed aspects
affecting it on that date. The power of each major progressed aspect and the power of
each reinforcing minor progressed aspect, involving Saturn, Uranus and Venus, and their
total reinforced power on March 19, 1941, is given on page 164 at the front of this lesson.
Calculating the Total Power and
Harmony of a Sign or House on a
Given Date
--RULE: One-half the total power and harmony of a planet due to progressed
aspects is added to the sign and house the cusp of which each of the aspecting planets
rules. One-fourth if it is an intercepted sign. The total power and harmony of a planet
due to progressed aspects is added to the sign and house actually occupied by its
terminal directly involved in the aspect, and one-half the total power and harmony is
added to the sign and house occupied by its terminal not directly involved in the
aspect. The sum of the powers thus indicated added to the normal progressed power
of the sign or house gives its total power. And the sum of the harmonies thus

indicated added to the progressed normal harmony of the sign or house gives its total
harmony.
On page 164 is given the reinforced power of each of the 11 major progressed
aspects in the John Edwards chart involving Saturn on March 19, 1941. Their sum is
695.72 astrodynes. On page 163 the power of each of the 6 independent minor
progressed aspects and the 3 transit aspects to Saturn are given. The sum of the 6
minors is 3.27 astrodynes. The sum of the 3 transit aspects is .15 astrodynes. The total
sum is 699.14 astrodynes. Dividing 699.14 by 2 gives 349.57. Page 99 of Chapter 04
shows the normal major progressed power of Capricorn as 32.61. 349.57 plus
32.61 gives the total power of Capricorn on March 19, 1941, as 382.18 astrodynes.
On page 130 of Chapter 05 the harmony of each of these 11 major progressed
aspects is given. Their net sum is 64.62 discordynes. On page 163 of this lesson the
harmony of each of the 6 independent minor progressed aspects and the harmony of
each of the 3 transit aspects are given. The sum of the 6 minor aspects is 2.67
discordynes. The sum of the 3 transit aspects is .12 discordynes. The total sum is
67.41 discordynes Dividing 67.41 by 2 gives 33.71 discordynes. Page 99 of Chapter 04
shows the normal progressed harmony of Capricorn as 9.24 discordynes.
33.71 plus 9.24 gives the total harmony of Capricorn on March 19, 1941, as 42.95
discordynes.
On page 164 is given the reinforced power of each of the 11 major progressed
aspects involving Uranus. Their sum is 500.52 astrodynes On page 163 the power of

involving Uranus are given. The sum of the 6 minor progressed aspects is 2.22
astrodynes. The sum of the 2 transit aspects is 11 astrodynes The total sum is 502.85
astrodynes. Dividing 502.85 by 4 (Aquarius is intercepted) gives 125.71 astrodynes
Dividing 699.14 (total power of Saturn, co-ruler of Aquarius) by 4 gives 174.79
astrodynes. Page 99 at the front of Chapter 04 shows the normal progressed power of
Aquarius as 9.84 astrodynes. 125.71 plus 174.79 plus 9.84 gives the total power of
Aquarius on March 19, 1941, as 310.34 astrodynes.

each of the 2 transit aspects are given. The sum of the 6 minor progressed aspects is
.17 discordynes. The sum of the 2 transit aspects is neutral. The total sum is 23.24
discordynes Dividing 23.24 by 4 gives 5.81 discordynes Dividing 67.41 (total
discord of Saturn) by gives 16.85, discordynes. Page 99 at the front of Chapter 04 shows
the normal progressed harmony of Aquarius as 1.86 discordynes. 5.81 plus 16.85 plus
1.86 gives the total harmony of Aquarius on March 19, 1941, as 24.52 discordynes.
