Retrospective prediction

From earliest recorded times, the most important task of the astrologer was to prognosticate the variations in collective fortunes. From the Babylonians to the Arabs, ancient astrology was hardly separable from foretelling and only omens were drawn from the planetary movements. Furthermore, the first known astrology was, on an official level at least, exclusively mundane astrology - concerned with the welfare of the king and of the state.


Astrology of Local Space

In a local space (astrolocality) chart or horizon horoscope, the planets are referred to the plane of the horizon instead of the ecliptic; their positions are shown in degrees of azimuth around the circumference of the horizon, whilst their distance above or below this plane is recorded in degrees of altitude, positive or negative.
