In this intensive, Project Hindsight aims to discover the general principles behind delineations that survived from Hellenistic times. 

A quick review of these delineations shows combinations of the same planets produce declinations that are often different in benefit of malefic character according to various astrological concepts. Many of them are also anomalous by modern standards. For example, the Mars transit of Saturn is very beneficial. But the Venus transit of Jupiter is negative! 

The general delineation principles can often be inferred. To a large extent, these principles can then be confined by a study of the delineation text itself.

General Principles of Hellenistic Delineation

The first treats of:

  • The System of the 12 Houses of Astrology as an Articulation of the Fate Concept
  • The Hermetic Lots as the Manifestation of Chance in the Chart
  • Planets in the Astrological Houses as Administrators of Fate
  • How Planets are Qualitatively Modified in Signs

The next subject is planets in their various modes of combination:

  • Co-Presences of Planets in a Sign (stellia) and Co-Rulerships of a Given Topic as based on the inherent Friendship or Hatred of the Planets for One Another
  • Aspects as Testimony of One Planet for or against Another, a fundamental act of cognition interpreted in the concert human setting of the courtroom
  • Applications and Separations of the Moon in terms of the Pollution or Purification of the Will, Malevolent & Benevolent Intent
  • Planets in the Domiciles of Other Planets explicated in terms of the Soul’s Power of Action as motivated by the Strangeness or Familiarity of the environment in which a planet finds itself
  • Transits as the Remembrance of One Planet by Another, as concretized by human acts of Gratitude & Forgiveness, accounting for the Persistence of the Natal Chart
  • Time-lord Combinations  as the Articulation of the Soul’s Experience of Time illustrated by the human activity of Counting & Recounting.

There is also some discussion of the:

  • Corresponding Medieval Doctrines, particularly in the area of Transit Delineation and the mutual Friendship & Hatred of the Planets
  • And TWO IMPORTANT PHILOSOPHICAL DIGRESSIONS which concern the Hellenistic Understanding of the Soul as the “astral body” or Astral Substance, and cautions about using the form/matter concept in combining Planetary Energies.
