ancient astrology videos

I recently started producing some videos on different facets of astrology on my YouTube channel, and there are several new videos there that cover basic, intermediate, and advanced techniques in Hellenistic astrology.

I wanted to post links to some of those videos here, for those who are just now discovering Hellenistic astrology, and want to know where to start. The videos will start with basic concepts first, and then move on to more advanced techniques.

Benefic and Malefic Planets

The distinction between benefic and malefic planets is one of the most fundamental concepts in Hellenistic astrology:


Planetary Sect: The Difference Between Day and Night Charts

Sect is another fundamental concept in ancient astrology, which did not survive into the modern tradition. It establishes a fundamental difference in the way the planets manifest their significations depending on whether a person was born during the day or at night.


Whole Sign Houses

The whole sign house system was the most prevalent form of house division in the Hellenistic tradition, and in this video I introduce the concept and explain how it works.


Annual Profections and Hellenistic Time-Lord Techniques

In this video I introduce the concept of the Hellenistic time-lord techniques, which were ancient timing procedures that were used to determine when certain planets would be activated in a person’s chart at specific points in their life. I then talk about the most widespread time-lord technique in ancient times, known as annual profections.


Zodiacal Releasing

In this final video I introduce a more advanced time-lord technique called zodiacal releasing, which is used to divide a person’s entire life up into chapters and paragraphs, as if the life was a book and you could identify the overall narrative of the story.
