A friend of mine asked me this morning how to get Placidus’ zodiacal directions in Phasis (1) and Morinus (2), two well known applications for traditional astrology. Do Morinus and Phasis give the same result? The answer is yes, they do. Let us choose our example chart, Fabiano Antoniani, the Italian A 39-year-old Italian DJ left blind and tetraplegic by a 2014 car crash, DJ Fabo, dead after an assisted suicide procedure in Switzerland.

In the latest years a lot has been written about primary directions and for many astrologers they are not a mystery anymore, especially since they are implemented in several traditional software. Suddenly anyway I realized that for the new generation of astrologers – the one following ours- is not like that and their Facebook pages are full of wrong examples, with awful and illogical directions following the order of zodiacal signs, which a friend of mine calls “the astrologers living in a place where the Sun sets in the East”.
The very day the Italian Nobel laureate Dario Fo had died in Milan, the famous American singer Bob Dylan was awarded for the same prize for the year 2016, “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.
A very quick look to David Bowie’s chart in the day of his death. The chart is cast for 9:00 am, the birth time given by parents and the former wife (1), but we like a lot because of Venus culminating at MC.
