Here we see:   Ve = Su/Mo

Notice that if you add 90 degrees to the Moon position, you arrive at the Sun.  Do the addition and see what I mean.  It is important that you start to get 'a feel' for these dials rather than just to read these words.  If you are tempted to include Jupiter, don't - it is too far away, and tight orbs must be used with midpoints.

My almanac refers to Eleanor as "a diplomat and humanitarian".  Certainly Ve = Su/Mo  is more relevant to her than a heavy weight boxer.  I do not know a great deal about Eleanor, but I know that she was no physical beauty and yet she had a very attractive personality, at least from what I have heard. 

Experienced astrologers will know that it is incorrect to make judgements by taking one part of a person's chart.  So, by looking at just the Su/Mo, we are not getting the total picture. These are exercises as an introduction to using midpoints.  Full natal analysis is not attempted here.
 
 


We will now investigate the charts of 
Mother Teresa, Adolf Hitler, and Paul Simon (American folk singer).
Which of these planetary pictures belongs with these people?

Ur = Pl = Su / Mo

MC = Su/Mo

Su/Mo = Me/Ju = MC/Ve

Try to match the above midpoints with the three people before you go to the next page.
If you find this too difficult, go ahead and cheat a little by scrolling down the page...

OK, here are some hints....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ur = Pl = Su / Mo
Ur = Sudden, unexpected           Pl =  Powerful transformations
Put these energies together and who do you have ?

MC = Su/Mo
Notice that the MC, Su, and Mo are all personal, important points.
Therefore, this combination would indicate great inner harmony.
Put these energies together and who do you have ?

Su/Mo = Me/Ju = MC/Ve
Me = speech, verbal;      Ju = lucky, successful;
MC = the individual, the aim in life;    Ve = love, art, attraction
Put these energies together and who do you have ?
