In the past I showcased a brief series on horary techniques, but I’ve had a desire to bring the series back by introducing new content and polishing the old content to bring it up to a new standard of presentation. This is partly for personal reasons as my writing style has changed drastically and partly for stylistic purposes as some older pieces don’t seem to fit in with the current voice of the blog.
This series is not intended to necessarily teach horary, but the focus is more on showcasing and discussing more advanced topics and techniques that don’t get expanded on in classical horary texts. Of course, this will no doubt aid intermediate horary students, but beginning students may struggle with some of the more complicated techniques. There will, though, be some articles focused on more basic or general principles. Remember, the focus is on more intermediate to advanced techniques or a look at basic techniques through a more advanced lens.
The following is a list of some of the topics that are going to be covered in this series, they are listed in no particular order (other than the way in which I wrote them down on a sticky note):
- Void of Course (an updated version)
- Mundane Aspects
- Via Combusta (an updated version)
- Tertiary considerations
- Considerations Before Judgment
- Timing (an updated version)
- Dignity and Debility
- Fixed stars
The above is something of a working list. Items will likely move places to form a more logically consistent presentation and some items may be removed so something else can take its place. Trying to keep this series within 15 parts, so I have four empty or flex spaces. If anyone has any particular technique they’d like to see explained more in detail that isn’t on the list, please comment below, send an email, or message us on Facebook with your suggestion!
We’ll begin this series next Tuesday with an article on aspects in horary!
