Lesson XXII is the last of the lessons in your astrological course. Upon completion of Lesson XXII you will receive your diploma and become eligible to participate in our advanced study which will be introduced and explained to you very shortly. You are not required to take our advanced course but you are required to complete this course to be eligible to take the advanced course.
Lesson XXII is the continued delineation of our sample progression. In Lesson XXI we considered the Progressed Sun and Moon and several other crucial factors pertaining to the Progression concept. The first part of this lesson concentrates on a delineation of the Progressed Ascendant, the Progressed Chart Ruler, and a Progressed Elemental Analysis. Also some additional information embracing the transits is furnished. The 2nd part of the Lesson demonstrates the most efficient procedures to attract a clientele and how to proceed with each client on the professional level. The information supplied is invaluable and is the climax of your devotion to study, hard work and patience.
THE PROGRESSION OF THE ASCENDANT
By referring to Diagram I please note that our sample client's Ascendant has progressed from 0° Virgo 29' to 27° Virgo 26'. As a new sign approaches the ascendant we must realize that, to a certain extent, it transfers the rulership of the Progressed Horoscope to it's own ruling planet, though the impression of the original ruler of the Nativity remains paramount throughout life. Thus, in our present study, we perceive the beginning of Virgo ascending at birth and the end of Virgo at the time of our progression. Libra is rapidly approaching. Hence, Mercury is the chart ruler of the Nativity and the Progression, however it is anticipating a surrender of some of rulership to Venus as Libra nears the Ascendant Position. Mercury maintains prominency throughout life but now moves aside somewhat as Venus shines to the fore creating additional planetary importance.
For another example: suppose Gemini ascends at birth, Mercury is the ruling planet during the whole life; but when the Progressed Ascendant becomes Cancer, then the Moon begins to exercise a powerful influence over the temperament, though the Mercurial characteristics still reign supreme over the disposition as a whole.
Regarding the planetary ruler of the Progressed Ascendant, always bear in mind that the ruler of the Sign itself has, during the period of that Sign's Ascendancy, the major impact over life, but it has as an assistant and coadjutor, the planet ruling the decanate rising. For instance, in our sample Nativity we have 0° Virgo 29' rising which constitutes the first decanate of Virgo. Hence, the chart ruler is wholly Mercury. However for our sample Progression, we have 27° of Virgo rising which is the 3rd decanate of Virgo. Therefore the ruler is chiefly Mercury with a partial Venus influence since the 3rd decanate of Virgo is Taurus ruled by Venus. For example - if the first decanate of Aries is rising, then Mars is the sole ruler of the chart; if the second decanate of Aries is rising, the ruler is chiefly Mars but with a sub Solar influence since the Sun rules Leo the 2nd decanate of Aries; if the 3rd decanate is rising the ruler is mostly Mars but with a sub-rulership accrued to Jupiter. (Note: You can refer back to Lesson 13, pp. 4 and reconsider and study the Decanate Division chart so as to recall the essential principles of it's construction, or you can refer to it on the other side of the Aspectarian. For our immediate consideration we must investigate the impact of the 3rd decanate of Virgo rising. This establishes that Mercury is the ruler of our Progression. (From previous study we also know that it is the ruler of the Nativity) and also that we must consider the sub-influence of Venus since it rules Taurus, the 3rd decanate of Virgo. This is interesting and rare in that Venus is about to become very prominent in the chart as Libra advances toward ascendancy. In any event, we shall consider the chart ruler completely in the following step. Presently our concern is for an evaluation of the Progressed Virgo Ascendant, then proceeding with an estimation of the planetary rulership consequence. By referring to Diagram I kindly observe that in the Progressed Ascendant House there are posited 3° of Virgo and 23° of Libra. Because Virgo is actually the sign on the Ascendant cusp it is considered the Ascendant. However, we devote a corresponding amount of time to treating the consequences of Libra in this position because it is dominant in the Ascendant House. The authority of Virgo's Ascendancy wanes some as Libra engulfs the position. As previously stated, however, even as Virgo moves away from the Ascendant, surrendering to new signs and new ways, it has regardless, marked it's indelible astrological stamp on our client. The Virgo Ascendant impact never leaves that client, it is simply colored by the following Libra in the Ascendant position. It is similar to the Progression of the Sun from one Sign to another. You always retain the vital precepts of your natal Sun Sign but they are modified or expanded as the Progressed Sun moves from Sign to Sign.
The 3rd decan of Virgo rising accentuates all the business and practiced tendancies of the Sign Virgo. It fortifies the intellect with intuition especially in financial or related areas. It appears that in the next few years our clients potential for procuring money is intensified and financial success is indicated. Numerous additional factors must be weighed in determining exactly how and through what channels he will accumulate this money. For our immediate purposes though, it is sufficient to observe that during the 3rd decanate of Virgo's Ascendancy the financial prospects are bright.
The impact of the progressed Virgo Ascendant provides our client with quick subtle mental qualities. He is orderly and critical and, at times, over analytical. It will seem that sometimes he gets lost in his continual analysis of all that is happening around him. He possesses a certain inclination towards pessimism which can make him overmagnify the unpleasant facts of life. When this does happen, he generally resorts to a self-pity which can destroy his social and mental attractiveness. The closer Libra moves to the Ascendant the less probable this tendency becomes. The Libra influences balances out this inclination and provides him a more realistic appreciation of the natural pitfalls of life.
The Progressed Virgo Ascendant renders our client perservering and ingenious. He continues to function most efficiently when free from the natural pressures of life. Remember that there is an aura of selfishness about him, yet he is extremely sensitive to the problems which befall his friends. He is orderly and critical, often self-centered and is rarely understood on initial acquaintance.
The effect which Libra exercises on the Progressed Virgo Ascendant is of no small consequence. Already 23° of Libra occupy the Ascendant House therefore a delineation of Libra's impression here is crucial for exactness.
Once again we want to point out the difference between the Natal and the Progressed Ascendant. The Natal Ascendant was 0° Virgo whereas the Progressed is 27° Virgo. Our client has absorbed just about all of the precepts of his Natal Virgo Ascendant and is now ready for some much needed help from his Progressed Libra Ascendant. However, he still has a few years of Virgo left him although he is already feeling very intensely the effects of Libra and of Venus. (Venus rules Taurus which occupies the 3rd Decanate of Virgo.)
The authority of Libra in the First House approaching the ascendant cusp implies that our client now employs his critical faculties moderately and in a more realistic fashion. The positive and negative aspects of his personality are starting to blend and compliment one another. His intellectual capacities are intensified and he is afforded a natural inherent power to successfully meet the emotional challenge of his Progressed Cancer Sun. Libra ascending suggests courteous, affable, kind and affectionate disposition. The fate is mostly in the hands of others, as there is little ability to mold or alter circumstances. This creates problems for sometimes our client can become lazy and over-dependant on others. This can stunt his development in many areas of life and must be modified. He is controlled principally by feeling and intuition, more so than reason. He is keen of observation, fond of company and generally very artistic, refined and truly sympathetic. There is not much energy or incentive to action, and consequently life lends to run in grooves as he is prone to lean on others for support.
In summary, the unfolding of the Libra Ascendancy (1st decanate) ignites a change in the environment and causes our client to enter a much easier and more even period. This Progressed Ascendant unveils his potential faculties for comparison and enables him to take a more balanced and just view of life. In fact, he now tends to regard life far more from the standpoint of justice than ever before. In simple yet revealing words, he is maturing.
Before we study the position of the chart ruler, natal and progressed, we analyze the Progressed Elemental Chart and see if any major trends or changes are developing within it's construction.
By referring to Diagram II at the end of this lesson and Diagram I of Lesson XVIII, we can compare the Natal and Progressed Elemental Charts. There have been three major changes in the construction of the chart although the underlying balance remains essentially the same. Whereas the Moon, in the Natal Elemental Chart, was posited in the Cardinal Air Sign Libra, it is now, (in the Progressed Elemental Chart), in the Mutable Earth Sign Virgo. The delineation and progression of the Progressed Moon consequence has previously been considered earlier in this lesson. Here we are concerned with the basic changes, within the Progressed Elemental Chart. What has happened in effect, is that one planet has been taken away from the total number of Air Planets while one has been added to the Earth Planets. But, be careful. A cautious examination of the chart reveals that the Earth Planets have also lost a planet, namely Mars, so that their relative strength remains at 2. Mars was posited in the Fixed Earth Sign Taurus in the Natal Chart, and now in the Mutable Air Sign Gemini for the Progression. This is the second major change worthy of notation. The third change we observe is that the Sun has moved from its Natal Mutable Air Sign Gemini to its Progressed Cardinal Water Sign Cancer.
Therefore what, in effect, has transpired is that the F. & E. planets strength has remained the same with the reduction of Mars and the addition of the Moon in the Earth Element. The Air planets have lost two, the Sun and Moon, but gained Mars, so their total loss is one planet. The Water Signs have gained one planet.
What this means is that where there was a perfect natural balance between Earth and Water planets in the natal chart, there is now some inherent minor imbalance as the Water Signs have picked up an extra planet. The essential imbalance between F - A remains, however it is not quite as acute now because Air has lost a planet and now the imbalance is 4 to 1 and not 5 to 1.
Before we go into the delineation of the Progressed Elemental Chart we suggest that you refer back to either one of two places in the course and review the basics behind each element. Study and review can never hurt you, quite the contrary, it can only help you. Either refer to Lesson 19, pp. 24 to 26, or Lesson Eight. You will continually employ your Lesson Booklets as points of reference throughout your career as an astrologer. They were written with that express purpose in mind so that they would become convenient reference material for you in your professional astrological career.
(Remember it is pure logic that under normal conditions you cannot mix Fire and Water, Fire and Earth or Earth and Air, or Air and Water and still maintain normal or natural conditions. This same principle holds true in astrology for cosmically you cannot mix contrasting elements either. Cosmically on F-A and E-W mix and no other combination will suffice.) By referring to Diagram II we note that our client still has a basic balance between his Earth and Water planets and an imbalance between his Fire and Air planets. He retains a heavy concentration of Air planets (4) and this is of considerable consequence. This cluster of Air planets maintains his versatility and adaptability. He loves to communicate and can invariably be found where a lot of people are conversing and expressing his intellectual capacity. However, it is important to realize that with the loss of both the Sun and the Moon from his Air concentration, he is beginning to slow down and take it all a bit more seriously. It is no longer so easy for him to jump from thought to thought, place to place, person, to person, without it affecting him.
The continuing imbalance between Fire and Air planets indicates that his lack of zeal or drive to utilize his intellectual capacities endures. This tendancy is starting to balance out; however, until it does, an inclination toward laziness will stunt his natural mental development.
The substantial balance between Earth and Water retains its saliency although the Water element has procured an extra planet. This balance implies a basic emotional stability which must be maintained to balance out the intellectual restlessness. He retains his realistic approach to life and remains orderly and logical, capable of digesting all he comes in contact with.
PROGRESSED CHART RULERSHIP ANALYSIS
The next step in our sample Progression Delineation is an evaluation of the Progressed Chart Ruler. Our sample clients Natal chart is ruled by Mercury and notably his Progressed Chart also falls under Mercury's domain. However, it is important to understand that the 3rd decan of Virgo now ruling furnishes a subrulership of Venus. Venus' inherent impact is doubly augmented when we realize that Libra is nearing ascendancy bringing with a Venus supremacy. However, Virgo is continues to occupy the Ascendant cusp. Hence we delineate Mercury as the ruler of the Progression with a corresponding mention of Venus' impending supremacy. In order to competently estimate the astrological potential of Progressed Mercury it is first necessary to recall the nature of the Radix position.
Radix Mercury is in its position of dignification in Gemini and the overall positional impact of Radix Mercury is excellent. So we have a strong Radix Mercury transiting through the Zodiac and retaining its chart rulership for the time of the Progression. To decipher the nature and impact of Progressed Mercury we must evaluate the Progressed Aspects. If you do not automatically recall that we put the weight of our investigation into the Progressed to Natal Aspects then you should refer back to Lesson XXI and reread that section. It is of paramount significance that you comprehend this principle. Remember this does not imply that aspects between Progressed Planets are meaningless or insignificant. It merely suggests that Progressed to Natal Aspects are more illuminating and relevant to the essential nature of our present study. Aspects between Progressed Planets are highly significant when evaluating mundane or political affairs.
As we have previously ascertained, the position of Mercury in the Radix is excellent. Progressed Mercury forms one major aspect with a Radix Planet. It forms a trine aspect with Radix Neptune in 13 degrees of Libra in the 1st House. The aspect can be written in the following manner: P 18o R 13o . The applied application of our Aspect Interpretation Chart provides the basis for a delineation of this Aspect.
ASPECT INTERPRETATION CHART
A. Nature of Aspecting Planets
Mercury is the planet of mind, reason and intellect. Mercury implies intellectual movement and progress. It distinguishes the progressive from the unprogressive, who can only do what he has been trained to do in youth.
The effects of Neptune are the most eccentric of all the planets. Neptune represents the phenomenon of beauty and inclines towards the dreamer. Neptune provides second insight, mediumistic power and the knowledge of the past and the future.
B. Elemental & Sign Position of the Aspecting Planets
Progressed Mercury occupies the 18th degree of Gemini in the 9th House, whereas Radix Neptune occupies the 13th degree of Libra in the 2nd House. Gemini is a Sign of the Air element while Libra is also from the Air triplicity. Cosmically, Signs of the same element mix and therefore the Aspect produces essential harmony. However we must venture a little deeper to absorb the true nature of the aspect.
Mercury posited in Gemini bestows a keen and alert mentality. It is dignified in Gemini and provides our client a natural capacity to follow a variety of interests. This locality of Mercury also denotes a latent wit and humor, a love of detail, and a fondness for travel and knowledge of the different areas of the world.
Neptune in Libra indicates a flirtatious nature implying that our client is prone to innumerable infatuations with the opposite sex. If passing fancies are not evaluated for their actual worth, they can cause an immeasurable amount of agony for existing relationships.
C. The Nature of the Aspect
The aspect creates elemental harmony under the Air triplicity. The aspect is further strengthened by the dignification of Mercury.
D. House Influence
Progressed Mercury is posited in the 9th House of Religion and Long-distance Travel. Mercury, here, accentuates the potentialities of thought and inspiration. The mental outlook is mostly optimistic but there is an intellectual restlessness and changeability which can cause some confusion.
Radix Neptune occupies the 2nd Zodiacal House. Neptune, here, signifies that our client has a strong driving urge to make money easily and quickly, and as a result he must be very careful that this urge does not interfere with his sense of discrimination between right and wrong. The prospect of easy money will always be attractive and can be responsible for numerous problems.
E. Other Aspects
Progressed Mercury forms one other aspect with the Radix and that is a minor sextile aspect with Radix Pluto in 14 degrees of Leo in the 12th House. The aspect creates additional elemental harmony within the major aspect under consideration. Remember though that the aspect is minor and hence its impact is slight. It simply provides some additional strength for the aspect being investigated.
F. Duration of Aspect
The transit of Mercury through the Zodiac is so swift that the duration of this aspect is short. These transits last only a day or two sometimes falling into groups during the year. Frequently several transits can occur in a month, encouraging a lively social round.
The following is some additional information concerning the vital constitution of the transit of the Sun, Moon and Planets. The slower a planet is in motion, the more action its transits ignites. Remember that any planet which is stationary within two degrees of some sensitive point in the horoscope is always important. The rule just elucidated, namely that a planet produces more effect when moving slowly than when moving quickly at the time of transit, is universally accepted and practiced in the astrological community. All other things being equal, the slower moving planets are much more marked in the results brought about than are those that move quickly because their influence extends over a much longer period. As a result of this concept, the planets can be divided for the purpose of transits into two groups; Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter, which are slow and the remainder which are quick. Mars however, is capable of producing effects by transit at critical times.
The slower moving planets mark general periods rather than specific dates. The impact of a slow moving planet is, of course, strongest on the day when its transit is exact, but the transit is meaningful through the entire orb of influence.
The transits of the quickly moving planets mark days rather than periods, for their influence seldom extends over more than two days. Mercury and Venus usually mark quite ephemeral events of only slight interest. The Moon, however, although the quickest in motion of all the heavenly bodies, is of greater all around importance than any other body.
As was previously explained to you in Lesson XXI, the Moon is of considerable importance in deciding fortunate or unfortunate days. It moves quickly and its influence never extends more than a few hours before and after the hour when it is exact, but in spite of this, its position has a great deal of influence.
TRANSITS THROUGH THE HOUSE
The 1st and 10th House, and especially their cusps, are the most important for transits; and the 4th and 7th are next to these. These constitute the four angles of the horoscope chart. Transits through the other houses are of much less importance, and their effects, of course, are felt mainly when Radix positions are affected by transit.
TRANSITS OF MERCURY, VENUS
These planets pass through the houses with comparative regularity. Mercury and Venus add vitality and stimulus to the affairs of the house through which they pass.
Mercury on the cusp of the Ascendant or Midheaven implies a fortunate time for all things governed by the planet. The amount of good fortune indicated will depend on any aspects which transiting Mercury forms. These aspects formed with planets in the Radix, once again, are the most important.
The same concept holds true for Venus when near or on the cusp of the Ascendant or Midheaven. (Note: The nature of the transiting Sun and Moon has already been explained and need not be repeated.)
TRANSITS OF MARS
The transits of Mars are quick and soon over. They tend to precipitate matters rarely affording a concrete choice of action. The transit of Mars incites rapid and impulsive decisions and temperence should always be highly recommended.
Mars passing through the First or Ascendant House incites the temper and stimulates the desire towards action and impulse.
Mars passing through the 10th House implies scandal, loss of credit, and ill-repute.
TRANSITS OF JUPITER
The transit of Jupiter is a blessing which implies good fortune, The transits of Jupiter incite opportunities for improvement and progress in all departments of life, but mainly social and spiritual. It has a tendency to expand and intensify the emotional side of the nature.
Jupiter passing through the First or Ascendant House implies periods of good health, renewed vigor, increased vitality and much cheerfulness.
Jupiter passing through the Tenth House is excellent for honor and reputation. It strengthens the overall credit standing and often brings much good fortune.
An unfortunate nativity is often improved by the transits of Jupiter, but without the power on the part of the native to respond to the transits of this planet it will be to little avail. The secret of transiting Jupiter's influence, lies in expansion and fullness of expression.
TRANSITS OF SATURN
The work of transiting Saturn is to solidify and render the fundamental aura, surrounding life, more stable and secure. However, if the native is not ready to mold and develop within these astrological changes, it disturbs the mind, causing resentment at the conditions which it imposes.
Saturn passing through the First or Ascendant House of the horoscope produces a depression which if properly manipulated can entice the native to take a long, hard, honest look at himself. Improvements and progress usually follow, but the native must be able to capitalize on this initiative.
Saturn passing through the 10th House or M.C. implies failure, scandal, trouble with superiors, and the loss of honor and credit.
TRANSITS OF URANUS, NEPTUNE, AND PLUTO
These planets remain in one Sign for extended periods of time, hence their significance applies to the times, the generations etc., rather than specific instances. You must always remember that Pluto, Neptune and Uranus in the sign depict the tenor of the times, the characteristics of the generations, the mood, the society, the tempo. Naturally all of us are, to a certain extent, under the influence of the times in which we live. This being so, the Sign and House position of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto provide valuable clues to individual personality and social traits.
The following is an outline of procedures for you to follow when contracting with a client to erect and/or delineate a natal or progressed horoscope.
The majority of your potential clients undoubtedly will come under one of the following classes.
I. Natal Chart Analysis Procedures
These are the people who will approach you to engage your professional skills to erect and delineate their Natal Chart. You explain what they receive from you and how much your fee is. (The amounts listed are minimum fees arrived by us.) Although these proposed guidelines for fees can be lower, there is no ceiling. Depending on your own personal dedication and growth, your advanced quality of work may enable you to command higher fees.
Natal Chart Analysis, you take the following steps adhering to the procedures outlined in your lesson books:
A. Erect the chart and insert the Natal Signs and Planetary positions with a corresponding explanation of the symbology involved.
B. List the planetary aspects and an elemental chart.
C. Delineate the impact of the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant Signs and the aspects of any planets involved. (Remember to concentrate on the major aspects yet considering the minor ones.)
D. Delineate the Houses not covered in the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant.
E. Discuss the chart Rulership and Elemental Chart.
F. Summarize in a closing paragraph.
Our minimum suggested fee: $35.00, $10.00 upon getting birth information, $25.00 when the client comes to see you or you go to see the client to discuss the typed delineation.
II. Natal Chart Analysis and Corresponding Progression Procedures
A. Everything included in Group I.
B. Erect the Progressed Sign and Progressed Planetary positions.
C. List the:
1. The aspects formed between progressed planets themselves.
2. The aspects formed between Radix and Progressed Planets.
D. Delineate the Progressed Sun and Moon and Ascendant and the aspects involved. (Remember to concentrate on the 2nd group of aspects between Radix and Progressed Planets.)
E. Delineate the Progressed Chart Ruler.
F. Evaluate the implications within the Progressed Elemental Chart in a summary. Our minimum suggested fee for this type of Progressed Work is: $60.00, $30.00 down payment and $30.00 at final conference.
III. Compatibility Analysis Requests
These are generally couples who are in need of some advice on how to save a failing relationship or understand better a partially successful one. People may also seek this type of help as far as potential business associates, marriage, courtship or merely a friend is concerned. They may want to solve a fundamental domestic problem or just get some basic information. Whatever the situation may be, you proceed as follows:
A. Erect the Natal Sign and Planetary position for each client.
B. List the planetary aspects and elemental charts for both clients.
C. Delineate briefly the Sun, Moon and Ascendant Signs and aspects of each.
D. Make a detail comparison of both elemental charts. This will necessarily constitute the major part of the delineation as it is the specified area of concentration requested.
Our fee: $50.00, $20.00 down payment and $30.00 at final conference.
IV. Those people who wish a certain question or set of questions answered.
Proceed as follows:
A. Erect the Natal Sign and Planetary positions with the corresponding explanation of the symbology involved.
B. Lift the planetary aspects and elemental chart.
C. Answer the question or set of questions in the summary paragraph. Our suggested fees: $15.00 for Natal Chart erection I. above, and $15.00 for each specific question.
As your experience factor increases in time you will realize what fee adjustments you will have to make based on your time availability. The quality of your delination necessarily improves with practice so be patient with your development.
A FEW HELPFUL HINTS AND REMINDERS
One of the most frequent annoying flaws common to a number of astrologers is repetition. Verbosity within a delineation is a source of nuisance and boredom to a client. Once you have delineated something within a chart leave it alone. Sometimes a point repeated may be important enough to be repeated as it is repeated within the actual chart. Remember to explain any repetition of this kind to your client. Always concentrate on quality before quantity. The longest delineation in the world which merely rambles on and on can mean absolutely nothing to the shortest one which is concise and to the point.
The following are advisories for you in conducting yourself as a professional astrologer.
Stationery: Business cards and letterheads are important and absolutely necessary. Don't be frugal about this because it is your first introduction many times to a future client and creates a lasting impression.
Advertising: The very least (and a must) is to appear as soon as possible in the yellow pages of the phone book. This can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you wish. Local newspapers or bulletins are next best and after this you're on your own. You may indicate that you are a graduate of our School in your advertising if you wish. The School maintains and publishes an annual list of professional astrologers and teachers. If you wish to be on this list the charge is $4.00 per year. (This should be remitted in and envelope marked Professional Listing, with your business address and phone number).
Fees: Do not go below the minimums established above. As you become experienced you can go higher. Some Astrologers receive as high as $1500.00 for a delineated chart. However this is after considerable skill has developed over several years. Keep accurate records of your fees and be sure to pay all taxes on your income.
Office: If you cannot afford an attractive office don't open one until you can. You can always establish a separate room or area at your home to practice. It should be decorated and furnished in good taste with Astrological emphasis carefully avoiding any bizarre atmosphere. Partnership is excellent with other Astrologers or graduates from our School.
Ethics: As an alumnus of the school you will be an affiliated member of the Congress of Astrological Organizations and you will be expected to comply with the following Code Of Ethics adopted by that Congress To wit:
(1) Ethics: As an alumnus of the school you will be an affiliated member of the Congress of Astrological Organizations and you will be expected to comply with the following Code Of Ethics adopted by that Congress To wit:
(2) I agree to hold inviolate any confidences reposed in me by a client, or any confidential or private information obtained by me through astrological means in respect to a client, on the same basis of practice prescribed as ethical by physicians and attorneys.
(3) I agree not to discuss the horoscopes of individuals in public, nor to write about them for publication, except as (i) I am careful to give no possible clue to the actual identity of the native, or (ii) I have his permission in writing for the use of his horoscope in this matter, or (iii) I confine my observations to factors in his life which are commonly regarded as public property due to (a) the position he has attained in the arts, politics and other places of leadership, or to (b) his celebrity or notoriety in general.
(4) I agree to make a clear distinction at all times between the improper use of astrology as a form of fortune-telling, or a pretense of powers to predict specific future events with absolute certainty, and its proper use as a technique for determining the probabilities in human events, and to this end I agree further that:
A. If my conclusions are based on anything other than a horoscope calculated for a definite geographical location and an equally definite year, month, day and hour, I will indicate this fact and in general refrain from identifying anything else as a "horoscope." If I employ the "sunscope," "equilibrium chart," "solor chart," "natural chart," or any alternative methods of analysis, I will carefully explain my procedure, both to my client and in any public presentation of astrology.
B. If my conclusions are aided, strengthened or supplemented by any factors other than the examination of the astrological indications as such, I will indicate the nature of these, and be careful not to employ the term "astrology" except in reference to the strictly technical examination of the psychological factors provided by the horoscope and the various cycles of the heavenly bodies.
C. In view of the general public tendency to interpret the words "predict" and "prediction" as implying a claim of specific ability to forecast future events in the fortune-telling sense, I will avoid the use of these words without definite qualification, speaking rather of "indications" or whatever other astrological language suggests "probability" in a truer scientific sense.
(5) I agree to make no use of astrology in connection with promotion schemes or business practices such as would he regarded as unethical in the field of medicine and law, and to refrain from employing membership or any office in the Congress of Astrological Organizations as an item of information or detail in formal advertising except as specifically permitted by the Congress through regulations published for all members, or through special permission in writing in any special case.
(6) I agree to employ no letters in connection with my name, to suggest or indicate academic or other degrees, except those representing actual degrees conferred by an institution of learning duly incorporated, chartered and authorized by law to confer such degrees.
(7) I agree to make every possible effort to contravene false or exaggerated representations of astrology, either by protesting directly to those responsible for such representations, or by reporting all facts and details at once to the Congress of Astrological Organizations for its action, or both.
Problems: Please send any question or problem which arises and you can't handle to the school for assistance. We are proud of our graduates and wish to help them anyway we can. If we can't answer your questions we will refer you to someone who can.
This course teaches you Numerology, Horary Astrology, Mundane (Stock Market) Astrology, Synastry, Relocation and other areas which you will be asked about as you practice Astrology. You will receive a more detailed letter about this with your diploma, license and certification.
