Lecture Details

Of the hundreds of planetary aspects we astrologers use every day, there is only one which renders a planet invisible: a conjunction with the Sun. Despite the frequency with which this occurs, there is disagreement about how to interpret it. Does visibility matter? Traditional astrologers certainly thought so: modern astrologers, not so much. Join Linea in a fascinating exploration of “combustion,” as this position was traditionally called. Both classical and modern views will be explained, as well as the psychological expression and resolution for this common chart condition. Workshop includes a much deeper look, including techniques from other traditions, a more thorough discussion of astronomy and related mechanics, plus descriptions and chart examples for each planet.
