Since last weekend Morinus new version (( site: https://sites.google.com/site/pymorinus/ )) has been released and I’d like to spend some words for a review .
Its new features are basically the mundane charts and the so called “Primary Directions in charts”.
In these charts planets are not considered according their ecliptic projection, but rather their real positions in the houses. Obviously planets so considered can easily shift houses depending how their latitude is.
They can be found under CHARTS/MUNDANE.
Primary directions in chart
It is the graphical representation of the directed planets at a given date, i.e. an event hit.
In order to get this chart it is necessary to right-click on the tabled list of directions: by default the corresponding (better we will see this below) chart will appear, but it is possible to edit the date or the arc and getting a new chart for the given date or the arc.
An example can be found in my previous post
Unfortunately the software is not user-friendly in this case, and the software help does not really help – forgive the joke. The user cannot find the settings for the main kinds of directions (the default settings are not always the right ones), and in reading the help the user only will find a strange threefold classification, which is frankly very difficult to associate with whatever known technique.
Anyway with a little of patience we can get traditional directions. These are the right settings: (please choose “aspects of promissor to significator“)
|PD settings||latitude||PD chart settings|
|semiarc||without latitude||celestial- from the ecliptic feet|
|Regiomontanus||significator with its latitude||celestial from the planets|
|Under the pole||significator with its latitude||celestial from the planets|
|mundane||terrestrial (no secondary motion)|
Other settings will not agree with the list of directions, no hope, at least they are not real traditional techniques.
Italian readers will find this and more in my forthcoming seminar in Rome (in Italian 🙂 ), on 14 April 2012. See Info http://www.almugea.it/Seminari/seminari.html
