The

positions of the Planets, Uranus, Saturn

and Jupiter, from

about 1850 and through the 20th century, have been tabulated so that the layman, with little or no knowledge of astrology, will be able to discover just when he will come under the chaotic and beneficent influences of Uranus, the adverse effects of Saturn, and the
beneficent vibration of Jupiter. With this information in his possession, he will know when to guard his health, when to take advantage

of opportunities, when to push forward and when to hold back, in short, how best to make the most of his life.

There are

also tabulations

which follow the description of each

Planet in the twelve signs, giving the sign position of the Planets from about 1850 on, thus enabling the reader to ascertain the sign

with such small variations in the heavens. the men who mould the destinies of humanity are the most evolved and therefore the most highly complex types. and small functions there. Everybody has just as many signs and planets as everybody else . and. in the man they are of which an elephant similar from the amoeba. In fact. the difference between an amoeba and an elephant? The is composed are one and all not very dis- many and complex. to go higher in the scale of evolution. They are not men who have small interests here. What is the difference. No study of aspects as such can explain the fact. yet one man is a nobody and another is more than half divine. The convolutions in the ape are few and simple. a radical difference becomes immediately patent. on the theory of probabilities. hardly one man in ten thousand leaves even a transient mark upon his generation. There lies the great secret. the variations should be so large on earth. some men with small brains have been the intellectual superiors of men with large brains. it would seem as if at least a third of the human race should be of noble calibre. they have built up every factor in their being vii . It is not so much the size and weight of the brain that differ." more or less.

As a result. The lack of continuity is fatal to the performance of any constructive work. A degrees. the planets are interwoven.viii ASTROLOGY into a single composite pattern. to begin with. there are times when one is at work in its own feeble way. and only one is more than ten degrees from the very farthest. Sometimes we find two or three complexes in a nativity. on the surface. one of five planets. the oilier two within four degrees. perhaps even four. three within two and a half . Edison has six within eleven degrees. with a seventh only four degrees. and also this is the important point or very nearly all. and those have BO close relation with one another.

Dante may be said to have two complexes. All this is explained by Astrol- ogy. all within nine decrees and one complex is only nine degrees from the other. If such a person should acquire fame. Shelley has five within eight degrees. Sir Richard Burton has five planets within five degrees and the other four within seven degrees. all within six degrees . and another comes into operation. and the other three within ten degrees. another of four. the others within eight . Bismarck has seven planets within ten degrees. Michael Angelo has six planets within six decrees. Petrarch has six planets within six and a half degrees. Five of them are in aspect within three degrees. Often the manifestations of the complex will be widely divergent. but this is only an- other symptom of the complexity. Shakespeare.

Why? Because they form parts of complexes of quite opposite natures. aspects and yet be utterly different just because in one case the Lord of the Ascendant was Mars and in the other Venus. It is not always easy to divine the secret pivot Two men might have identical on which a complex swings.. the trine of Jupiter will favor his selfish plans. that determines the disposition. and the superiority of the Sun in Leo to Venus that made effective the manifestation of that disposition in the heart through art.x ASTROLOGY 9 SheIIey s conjunction of Mars and Jupiter is very differently effective from that aspect in the horoscope of the late J. said for a preliminary account of this matter.

The mere fact that one is in Leo and the other in Libra would not account for the difference. he may be overwhelmed by them or it and his place in heaven. if a Jupiterian the trine of Saturn will restrict and balance his enthusiasms. The Lord of the Ascendant is usually the cardinal point. The conjunction of the Sun and Venus which made Shelley so glorious an incarnation of Light and Beauty would hardly have acted in that way had Scorpio. for we regard the other planets as modifying Saturn or Jupiter.

It largely depends upon the intelligence used In handling this dominant force as to whether it will give Bolshevik tendencies or simply force issues, to do unpopular things, or to try to accomplish the Impossible. While under the influence of Uranus, schemers and unscrupulous promoters will often bring to the attention "get-rich-quick" propositions. Even If their motives be friendly, they may be self-deceived and their advice unreliable. This planet causes one to be at crossroads, and the decision made while under Its sway will very materially affect the future. It should be realized that lack of harmony, restlessness, discontent and dissatisfaction with existing conditions will be largely due to a craving for new experience and for greater opportunities for self -expression- It will be most unwise to set the personal will against the Universal Will ; one should rather make the most of the opportunities which Fate presents, and should not be surprised If one almost attains many things which, at the last moment, escape

This combination often causes sudden deaths, separations, and broken friendships, either in family or business life. One should listen to the Inner promptings, make only necessary decisions, and, when order is again established, a higher plane of consciousness will be reached and It will be possible to use the added power with increased intelligence. Consequently, one should have no fear of any change or experience which comes about naturally during an affliction of Uranus to the Sun. To unmarried women, It often brings temptation, either from married men or from those who are utterly unworthy* It is not a favorable vibration under which to become engaged or to marry. Married women are usually worried over the husband's affaire or frequently suffer a separation from the husband, because of misunderstandings, sudden death or divorce. The greatest self-control in all matters must be exercised when under the Influence of this erratic planet.

When the Sun is in Gemini and temporarily afflicted by Uranus, every effort should be made to avoid restlessness, to cultivate contentment and to give the entire attention to one thing at a time. Otherwise, those people who are under this affliction are likely to become depleted nervously and, if they disregard Nature's warnings, in time they will suffer from a nervous breakdown. One of the first signs of such a condition would be insomnia, neuritis or rheumatism, which might affect the hands, arms or shoulders, and sympathetically colic in the intestines, nervous sciatica, lumbago,
nervous gout, and neuralgic pains in the feet or

In extreme cases of such distress, immediate relief may be experienced by using a small quantity of bicarbonate of soda, together with a large quantity of lukewarm water and by emptying the stomach by induced regurgitation. Neglect of acidity could result in ulcers of the stomach.

Shakespeare says

"Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy ? But not expressed in fancy; rich, not gaudy; For the apparel oft proclaims the man."

For instance,, a woman spending the summer at Bretton Woods s recognized as being the resort for the most exclusive and wealthy set, or spending the winter at The Breakers at Palm Beach, would certainly stand a better chance of meeting men who would benefit her than she would by spending these seasons in a small Main
Street town.

The beneficent influence of Jupiter causes people to attract the best, not only from the Universe and those with whom they arc associated, but also causes them to get more nutriment out of their food ami, in consequence, it is very necessary that they watch their cliet, unless they desire to put on flesh. The influence of Jupiter will also assist them in gaining" recognition in their work, or, if they are connected with polities, these periods would be favorable for allowing their constituents to name them as candidates for office, as they stand an excellent chance of winning the election. Just as one should never allow himself to be a candidate for any important office when Uranus in unfriendly

Even though there may be adverse aspects operating in one's chart during a friendly aspect of Jupiter to the Sun, (but this, of course, can only be ascertained by having a complete reading of the horoscope by an efficient astrologer) this will have a very modifying influence and bring directly or indirectly good conditions out of what may appear to be adversity. For instance, Saturn afflicting the Sun might indicate a death and the fact that Jupiter was friendly at the same time might indicate that there would either be an inheritance, or that death might bring release from responsibility.

When the Sun is in Aries and temporarily beneficently aspected by Jupiter, the best qualities which the sign Aries implies will be stimulated to greater activity. Those who are feeling its effects may enjoy more than ever making plans and doing pioneer work.
If they are holding managerial positions or are at the head of any important undertakings, then these would be propitious periods for enlarging their enterprises or for trying to merge them with others of a similar character. There may be a tendency for their added enthusiasm and confidence to cause them to take an attitude which may stir the resentment of those less executive or fortunate than themselves. It is most essential that these people should not allow themselves to put on too much flesh or to become too full-

When the Sun is in Taurus and temporarily beneficently aspected by Jupiter, the best qualities which the sign Taurus implies will be stimulated to greater activity. Because of the added success and power which Jupiter may temporarily bring, those born with the Sun in Taurus may find it necessary to exercise greater selfcontrol than usual in order to avoid going to excesses in the gratification of their generosity
