Principia of polyzodiacal astrology

8. Conclusions

Let us summarize the purpose, main conclusions and results of this work:

  1. The main purpose of this work is to reformulate the computing algorithms of event forecasting astrology in accordance with modern physical and mathematical description of space and time. We took as a basis the concepts of geometrodynamics, more widely known as the general theory of relativity. The name of geometrodynamics, mainly used by experts, reflects the nature of this theory, and we prefer to consider it as a mathematics of space-time. If we separate the conception of geometrodynamics from Einstein’s equations, geometrodynamics is more mathematics than physics. Although we can encounter phenomena that it does not predict, it is still necessary to describe such phenomena using its language. In this sense geometrodynamics, just as mathematics as a whole, is not a theory but a language in which the strict notional systems existing in nature are described.
  2. In the opinion of the author, this work has achieved its purpose. But in order to realize this purpose we had to abandon the philosophy of short-range action alleged to be a basis of the modern natural-scientific picture of the Universe. The possibility of the existence in nature of long-range action phenomena does not contradict the basic concepts of this picture. To avoid contradictions, it is sufficient to abandon the attempt to consider one of the short-range interactions as a base of astrological laws. One of the main notions by which we realize the stipulated program is that of simultaneity. We constantly took the opportunity to construct purely spatial three-dimensional sections of four-dimensional spacetime in this work. It is well known that it is possible to formulate classical geometrodynamics in the invariant four-dimensional language. This supports the conjecture that the as yet unknown physical basis of astrology is not classical.
  3. The need for a unified description of such two such outwardly different phenomena as the Zodiac and the house system requires the possibility of working only with pure spatial sections of four-dimensional spacetime. The possibility of such a description also requires that we consider the Sun as the body that generates the Zodiac, since its structure when emphasizing the principle of locality is defined by the mutual dynamics of a born and the Sun. In this approach a house system is a projection of another zodiac generated by the Earth onto the solar Zodiac.
  4. Compared to traditional astrological calculations, the results obtained according to the new algorithms differ by less than the orbs used by the majority of astrologers in event calculations. Therefore, the proposed concept and resulting algorithms agree with the traditional astrological calculations and interpretations that we’ve inherited from the Moyen Age. Nevertheless we have proposed the technique of exact aspects, through which the accuracy of astrological event calculations increases by 2 orders of magnitude. This technique translates a theoretical difference between the proposed and traditional algorithms onto a purely practical plane.
  5. The proposed technique for pinpoint accuracy event calculations allows us to attain temporal resolutions of 1-2 seconds of transit time, a half-hour of real-time for progressions and 3 days for directions. To achieve this accuracy the conception of symbolic progressed and directed time has been changed. The linear temporal mappings widely used in medieval European astrology have been replaced by conform (non-linear) mappings of the event (world) line of a born. These mappings allow us to attain pinpoint accuracy in event calculations, but do require detailed information about the movements of the born in the first three months of life. Additionally, a born’s location must be known to an accuracy of several hundred metres.
  6. The unified conception of the derivation of the Zodiac as a dynamic construction generated by the Sun enables us to determine the structure of the lunar and planetary zodiacs with a high accuracy as well. The lunar zodiac is of considerable importance not only for event calculations but also for the development of astrological symbolism. Unlike the solar and terrestrial zodiacs it cannot be described by means of a static, elementary geometry. Because of this, we can understand the failure of ancient astrologers to define the lunar zodiac in a way suitable for event calculations and interpretation.
  7. The unified description of the equinoctial points, local lunar and planetary nodes may serve to redefine the significance of their positions for the interpretation. The local lunar nodes are situated near the usual lunar nodes at a distance of 10-20 for most of the day, but at certain times each day they diverge 100 or more. In these cases it is particularly easy to find the interpretative value of the local lunar nodes in natal charts.
  8. Within the framework of the idea of the fundamental reference point of a central massive body we proposed to use previously unknown sensitive points in event calculations. These points are the cusps of the stations of a zodiac and their projections onto other zodiacs (except house cusps and stations of the terrestrial zodiac and the so called cusps of equal solar houses on ecliptics), a generalization of the familiar house cusps (projections of the terrestrial station cusps) and the equal solar house cusps (station cusps of the solar zodiac) on the ecliptic.
  9. Within the framework of the exact aspect technique we introduced the hypothesis of the central interpretative value of a "fundamental triad" (planet–aspect–cusp). We also formulated the “eventless” exact-aspect technique for precise rectification to 1-2 seconds of time. This technique has shown its efficacy in a considerable number of natal horoscopes.
  10. At first we were well satisfied by the state of astrological symbolism used for interpretation, and did not plan any research in this area. But the system of ideas and methods for pinpoint calculations proposed in this work requires a fundamental revision of the conceptual basis for traditional astrological calculations. We think that this revision could eventually have a significant impact on the evolution of the symbolic structures in astrology.

To conclude we would like to note one more characteristic (and maybe in our opinion the main one) of the presented work. The contemporary situation in astrology, where it is covered over by mysticism and doubtful calculation techniques, as well as the broad proliferation of "astrological" charlatanry, can only frighten off people with a sound natural-scientific education and with research experience in these fields. In fact, the more precisely a man thinks the greater the likelihood that he will disqualify astrology on first exposure from any claim to being an exact knowledge system. We hope that this work has decreased the probability of such a dismissal of astrology at first sight.
