ALMUTEN - is that planet that bears chief rule of any sign, or in any figure, as saturn in Libra is Almuten, or is Almuten of Libra, because he has both exaltation and triplicity therein, and Venus has only house, so that saturn bearing chief rule, is of this sign Almuten. Astrologie Restored , William Ramesey, 1653, page 111. ALMUTEN OF ANY HOUSE - is that planet who has most dignities in the sign ascending or descending upon the cusp of any house, whereon, or from whence, you require your judgment. Christian Astrology, William Lilly, page 49. ALMUTEN OF A FIGURE - is that planet who in Essential and Accidental dignities, is most powerful in the whole Scheam of Heaven. Christian Astrology, William Lilly, page 49. Examples from William Lilly, Christian Astrology. • Lost Items--Look to the Lord of the 2nd and his Almuten (viz. he that has most dignities there) there are the goods.......Christian Astrology, William Lilly, page 352. • Whether the thief be suspected of the owner or not---If the Moon have conjunction or opposition to a planet in the 7th, or to the Almuten thereof, the Owner suspects him.........Christian Astrology, William Lilly, page 360.. Johannes Schoener, Opusculum Astrologicum p.62 Latin Track, volume IV, Project Hindsight. The ruler, significator or governor, called in Arabic the ALMUTEN, is reckoned as that [planet] which has more essential dignities in the sign or the degree of a sign, as [for example] if 6 degrees Libra rises in a diurnal figure, venus has in that place 5 essential dignities by reason of her domicile. But Saturn has 9 by reason of its exaltation, triplicity and terms, overcoming all of the rest [of the planets]. So saturn is reckoned as the Almuten or ruler of the Ascendant. In this manner one must work with the other [planets as well]. ALMUTEN RULER BY DEGREE/ DAY AND NIGHT- complete listing can be found in the 1995 Special Edition of The Horary Practitioner, pages 36-37. ANTISCION DEGREE - [ANTISCION OF THE PLANETS.] Besides these and many other divisions of the Signs, I thought good to be plain in setting down the Antiscions of the Planets. [PTOL. APHO. STELLAE IRRATIO.] The Antiscion Signs are those, which are of the same virtue and are equally distant from the first degree of the two Tropic Signs, Cancer, Capricorn, and in which degrees whilst the Sun is, the days and nights are of equal length; by example it will be plain; when the Sun is in the tenth degree of Taurus, he is as far distant from the first degree of Cancer as when in the twentieth degree of Leo; therefore when the Sun is in the tenth of Taurus, he has his Antiscion to the twentieth of Leo; that is, he gives virtue or influence to any Star or Planet that at that time either is in the same degree by Conjunction, or casts any Aspect unto it. But that you may more fully and perfectly know where your Antiscion falls in degrees and minutes, behold this following Table. A general Table of the Antiscions in Signs. • GEMINI <>CANCER • LEO <> TAURUS
] Degrees lame and deficient are those mentioned in the fifth Column. or being in Leo into Taurus. . Mars in 10. and it represents in questions. of Aries. Mercury being not direct until he has made Conjunction with Mars. a Man going out of Gods blessing into the warm Sun. this is an ill Application and an argument either suddenly perfecting. in a Question on sudden alteration: but more particularly I express Application as follows. as Mars in 10 degrees of Aries. when any Planet is places betwixt the bodies of the two Malevolent Planets Saturn and Mars: as Saturn in 15. & 25 min. If you would know the exact degrees and minutes. Let us suppose Saturn in twenty degrees and thirty five minutes of Leo. the aspect is mutually applying. one degree. as Mercury in 10 degrees of Aries. the meaning whereof is thus. and these is no doubt that you shall find one or more of them in Azimene degrees. which Signs as you see is over against Leo. and the remainder tells you both the degree and minute. and on the sudden you can in the figure give no present satisfaction to your self. but of so little purpose in Judgment. and there rests 25 min. and Mercury retrograde in 17 Aries.[CALLED BY SOME AZIMENE DEGREES. you may then suppose the native has either one of these Azimene degree. There are other accidents belonging to the Planets one amongst another mentioned by the Ancients. that I have clearly omitted them. Aries: here Venus is besieged by the two infortunes. Aries. APPLYING ASPECT . • Thirdly. this is an ill application. I borrowed. or the Lord of the Ascendant. when a Planet is direct. so then I find my Antiscion of Saturn falls to be in 9 degree.

I would know in what part of the Zodiac he has his Antiscion.Application of Planets: • First. To know the degree and minutes the Planet is in.An applying aspect moves toward perfection. they being both direct. when a Planet of more swift motion applies to one more slow and ponderous. according as the two Planets have signification. and a retrograde Planet being in more degrees of the Sign. or infected with an inseparable disease. or from 60 min. and in fewer degrees. then nothing remains. • Secondly. or the Moon in one of them: in a Question or Nativity. halting.
