NEW MAGICKS FOR A NEW AGE
Appendices
Volume I: A New Order of the Ages
Book 4: Glossary of Terms
The following is incomplete and needs some revision, but, in conjunction with library sources suchas Wikipedia.com and books and articles on the subject, it can be useful for the student and practitioner of the esoteric Arts and Sciences, especially astrology.

 Adjectives and qualifiers
:Cytherial: of or pertaining to Venus (same as “Venereal” or “Venerean,” but to modernssounds more, ahem, polite)Jovial: of or pertaining to Jupiter as a psychospiritual influenceJovian: of or pertaining to Jupiter as a physical Planetary entityTerrestrial: of or pertaining to Terra, i.e., Mother EarthMartial: of or pertaining to MarsMartian: of or pertaining to Mars as a physical, Planetary entity
 Aeon, Changes of 
(esoteric theory): The average length of an Aeon is 2,160 years, one-twelfth of the period over which the precession of the Earth’s axis of rotation goes through one complete cycle. This is because an Aeon corresponds to the length of time during which the Vernal Coleur – the celestiallongitude, as measured against the backdrop of the heavens, of the Sun’s position on the first moment of Spring each year, when He crosses the celestial equator going North on His apparent yearly round of 
 
Earthly skies – remains within one of the twelve Zodiacal Constellations. This, too, may have ageophysiological basis. According to astronomers Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon,. . . [Strictly] speaking, the period of the sunspot cycle is not 11 years; it variesfrom eight to 15 years. Other periods are also present, for instance the 80- to 90-year “Gleissberg Cycle” and a 200-year cycle. A period of roughly 2,200 years is suggested by records of solar magnetism from the radiocarbon abundance in bristlecone-pine treerings that can be traced over several millenniums.-- Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon, “The Sun-Climate Connection,” in
Sky &Telescope
Vol. 92 No. 6 (December 1996), p. 39Obviously living things, e.g., bristlecone pines, react metabolically to changing strengths of the Sun’selectromagnetic field. There is no reason to assume that the reaction might not also be exhibit as gross behavior among non-sessile beings such as animals, including ourselves, on both individual andcollective levels. Therefore there is a possibility that the progression of the Aeons may be tied to thecycles of waxing and waning strength of Sol’s electromagnetic field and His cycles brightness associatedwith them.

: Decomposition, recomposition (integration); mercury, salte, sulfur; the four Elements;the Black Dragon of Putrefaction; etc.
 Algebra, Boolean

is some base number, e.g., 10 (which we normally use), and the

are members of a set of scalars, in this case, the set of digits {0,1,. . .,9}.But in Boolean algebra,
 x
is equal to 2, and the
a

c
 
an only take on the values {0,1}. So, asrepresented in Boolean notation, a number is a string of 1’s and 0’s. This is now numbers – and, for thatmatter, any other kind of information – are presented in a computer.See entry under 
Polynomials

 Appulse
(astronomy): The near approach of one orbital body to another during a conjunction, whenthe declinations of the two are not close enough for them to form an
occultation
; the culmination at or crossing of the meridian. Applied particularly to the appulse of the Moon to the Earth’s shadow. See
Eclipse
.
 Apsis, apsides (pl.)
(astronomy): The points of greatest and least distance of a planet, moon, or companion star revolving about a primary to the latter. Perihelia, aphelia of a member of the Solar System; perigee, apogee
 Ascendant 
(astrology): See entry under 
Cusp, cusps
.
 Aspects
: The angles which, as viewed from the surface of one or another planet, moon, or other celestial body, the celestial bodies in its environment appear to form with one another and the body onwhose surface the observer is located. In particular, the term refers to the geometric interrelationship of 
 
the Earth and any two other celestial bodies, as observed from the Earth’s surface, as these relate to ahoroscope cast for the observer’s position, the date, and the time of the observation.Suppose an astrological chart has been erected to answer a question (a horary chart); to predict theoutcomes of an event (an electional chart, for timing a ceremony, ritual, etc.); or to analyze the possibleramifications of some unpredictable event, such as an earthquake, outbreak of war, etc. (an event chart).The
Significator 
or ruler of that chart, i.e., the Planet ruling the Sign on that chart’s Ascendant,determines the answer to the question, consequences of the ceremony, or implications of the eventrepresented by that chart according to the aspects which it makes by progression to the Planets or other sensitive points in the chart. If the Significator in a horary chart makes no applying aspects to anythingof significance in that chart before leaving its Sign (or, in some cases, taking its station and goingretrograde within that Sign), or isn’t within orb of application to any other body in the chart during thattime, then the Moon becomes the chart’s Significator.* Like transiting Saturn, the progressed Moonmoves through the sky at an average of about one degree per month. By Her progressed motion and themajor aspects She makes as long as She is still in the Sign of Her original placement in that chart, She brings all things into manifestation.***In event charts, separating aspects can also be of significance.**For horary charts, major aspects to other Planets, the Part of Fortune, and other applicable points in thechart include the conjunction, sextile, square, trine, opposition, and parallels of declination. For event charts, this list is expanded to include the quincunx or 150
°
aspect. The quincunx, sometimescalled the inconjunct (a term also used for semisextiles), isn’t considered to be a major aspect inhorary charts, but as a secondary influence it is considered to be of great importance, since itsappearance in a chart is often indicative of grave illness or a disaster such as an earthquake.Quincunxes usually abound in event charts erected for disasters such as earthquakes and the outbreakof war. The geometric supplement of the quincunx, the semisextile, an angle of 30
°
, may be of significance with respect to the inception of conditions leading to injuries, disasters, ill-health, etc.See the Glossary in the Appendices to Volume I of this work for complete definitions of types of aspects as well as separating vs. applying aspects., etc.
Major aspects
are those which have major astrological effects upon the celestial bodies and theastrological chart under consideration. They include the
conjunction
(0°);
 sextile
(60°);
 square
(90°);
trine
120°);
quincunx
(also sometimes called
inconjunct 
, an angle of 150°);
opposition
(180°),
 parallel 
(same declination, or distance from the celestial equator, on the same side of it),
contraparallel 
(samedeclination, on opposite sides of the celestial equator), and
occultation
(conjunct and parallel each other at the same time, so that the body nearer to the Earth eclipses the observer’s view of the farther one).
Minor aspects
, whose effects tend to modify other things in the chart but aren’t themselves major influences, include the
 semisextile
(30°; sometimes also called an
inconjunct 
),
 semisquare
(45°),
quintile
(72°),
 sesquisquare
(135°), and others.*For further discussion of these and other minor aspects, see Emma Belle Donath,
Minor Aspects Between Natal Planets
(Tempe, AZ: The American Federation of Astrologers, 1982),
 passim
.The aspects of significance in a horary chart, one erected to answer a question, include the parallel,*the conjunction, the sextile, the square, the trine, the opposition, and the occultation.*The two bodies involved in a parallel may both be on the same side of the celestial equator, or onopposite sides. In either case, in horary and event charts the aspect is considered to be a parallel, andinterpreted as such.
