An Example of a Midpoint Tree
Thanks to Cindy for providing the explanation (letter below) and diagram.
 
 
Progressed = Red
Natal = Black
 
Event (MC) is before the world (pAr) and involves physical events(pSu)
 
Wounds(Ch) are unexpected (Ur) by others (pAsc) when a great (pAp) energy
(pVu) is released (Ze). 
 
Deep (Ad) is the Event (pMC) the day (Su) is
connected to world events (Ar) through hidden force (pPl) 
Students, please note that this is not a simple midpoint tree, as there are many planets 
  and the inclusion of both natal and progressed points.
I'll let you put in some key words for the rest of the tree.

Hello fellow 101ers, 

We've been working with the Winter Solstice chart for Masterton, New 
Zealand for the past few posts that I've done.  So I thought we'd 
continue along that vein.  So far we've covered how to calculate a 
midpoint, how to use the 360 degree dial and the 90 degree dial and 
how to progress a chart.  This follows the sequence which Maria Kay 
Sims uses in "Dial Detective" .  The next section covers definitons 
of the TNPs used in Uranian astrology.  Steve has a nice section on 
his web site with definitions.  This is a quick way to that section 
of his web site.  You might want to read it and print it out if you 
don't have a copy of this information already.

The next topic that is covered in "Dial Detective" is midpoint trees. 

We'll do a simple midpoint tree using the progressed Winter Solstice 
chart.  I have sent this chart as a jpeg file previously.  If you wish to 
draw it on your own, which is recommended, the information is 6/22/98, 
2:03 AM -12, Masterton, NZ 40S57, 175E40. 

To work with the progressed, you need to put the information from the 
chart on the dial's inner ring, with the Solstice on another dial (paper 
copy) underneath it.  Both should be visible but the upper dial needs to 
be movable. Fabric snaps work great for this and they're inexpensive. Just 
put the snap through the middle of the dials.  Then turn the inner (top) 
dial (progressed) so the 00 Cardinal sun is at 23 Cardinal 50 on the outer 
dial .  Lay the dial pointer over the top of this so that the Aries point 
is at 23 Cardinal 50 also.  Then you look at what is equidistant on either 
side.  You will construct a tree something like the one below.  I think I 
may have missed some points and my orb around natal Uranus is too large to 
really consider it but you'll get the general idea. 

Event (MC) is before the world (pAr) and involves physical events(pSu) 
Wounds(Ch) are unexpected (Ur) by others (pAsc) when a great (pAp) energy 
(pVu) is released (Ze).  Deep (Ad) is the Event (pMC) the day (Su) is 
connected to world events (Ar) through hidden force (pPl)  

I'll let you put in some key words for the rest of the tree.  

You might also want to look at the midpoint for Uranus/Admetus it's 
activated by the day's events.  Since it was an undersea earthquake 
that set off a tidal wave.  The midpoint is at 00Aries48.  (which 
would make it the midpoint of the Solstice Sun and of the progressed 
Pluto) 

The information for the earthquake is  
7/17/98, 8:49 AM GMT, 03S08,  141E56.
