Ok - I'm going nuts! (Yes I know I already was - stop laughing! hee hee)
Rising signs! Rising signs!!!
I went to 3 different sites that do your natal chart for free.
All 3 said my rising sign is Capricorn 29th degree.
But according to a book I have & other sites where you calculate it for yourself, I'm Aquarius or Pisces or...!!!
Now I'm thinking that 29th degree Cap is basically Aquarius anyway...
But does anyone know how to properly calculate it for yourself?
I read that you need to know the time of sunrise... (on your bday where you were born - obviously!)
Come on you closet astrologists out there!
Speak up!
Astrology lesson please!

I used to know how to do all this stuff manually.... at one time, I was a member of the AFA (American Federation of Astrologers) and everything. To tell you the truth, I cannot remember exactly how to do the calcs, but there is a fair amount of math, especially when figuring how the zodiac lines up with the 12 houses.

The tools you would need to do it, though, would be the exact place of birth, the exact time of birth, a sidereal ephemeris, and a good atlas that shows longitude/latitude of.... everywhere.

To tell you the truth, though.... it's an awful lot of work to do those calcs... chews up a lot of time, and with today's software, you can easily get a good chart almost instantly using the computer. If it's just a matter of satisfying curiosity as to how it's all computed, that's one thing. But you'd be spending a lot of time doing calcs and constructing the chart.... if it were me, I'd use the computer-generated chart and focus my efforts on learning how to interpret it.

I don't know much about Astrology, but I know about my sign: Capricorn.

1. We have a tendency to take over (be bossy).
2. We are stubborn as a mule or goat at times (hence our sign is a goat).
3. Hard workers.
4. Very cautious (at least some of us are).
5. A tendency to be curious.
6. Love being in a monogamous relationship (until we break up, is when we search of another).
7. "Work hard, Play hard" attitude (we love to work, but when work is done, we like to have a good time also).

I took the Tarot Card quiz and I'm an Empress. That pretty much says something about me.

Ditto. Do a computer generated chart and learn what it all means. I can or could do them by hand; gave it up and most of the books, and would prefer to toss the info into a program and whip up a chart.

And, astrologers like cooks and doctors vary from person to person so it is good to know something about a subject before accepting a quick and dry answer.

My 2 cents: Cap 29o does mean you have a great deal of Aquarius rising, so you'd need to know what aspects this is forming; and generally 29o is considered significant, by some astrologers, in aspect or on its own--a leaving behind the old, about to enter a new ssue.

Default Why Consult a Professional Hermetic Astrologer?

An excellent question! -- And as you become aware that Hermetic Astrology is not just a science, but a super-science, the scope and influence of which most people are still unaware, you realize that you consult a professional Hermetic astrologer to obtain essential personal information and guidance available to you by no other means! This essential information provides you with many advantages, among which are increased self-understanding and greater personal wisdom, together with the timing and tools to take effective action and create lasting personal success and satisfaction in all areas of your life. In other words, you consult a professional Hermetic astrologer ...TO FIND OUT EXACTLY HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE!


Hermetic Astrology is the study of the non-physical, fourth-dimensional energies emanating from the planets and how these energies stimulate corresponding centers within the subconscious minds of individuals. These planetary energies travel at velocities greater than the speed of light and therefore have no physical properties. They impact the mind and the emotions. The thinking, feeling, and acting stimulated by these energies bring about changes in the physical circumstances and experiences of the individual.


PRECISION IS THE KEY-WORD IN THE HERMETIC SYSTEM OF ASTROLOGY --
The Hermetic System of Astrology evolved from the research of a number of astrologers working together from the beginning of the 20th Century and led by Brotherhood of Light Initiate and famed astrologer Elbert Benjamine (C.C. Zain). They researched thousands of charts to assess character traits and observed the resulting events and conditions in people’s lives. The results of this research constitutes the basis of this astrological system. Thousands of charts were also checked for mundane astrology and weather prediction and the findings are the basis for those specific techniques. The difference between the Hermetic System and other types of astrological practice is that there is an added tool in the form of more precise calculations called “Astrodynes,” which indicate the volume of power, harmony, and discord of each planet, sign, and house in the individual birth chart. This gives great precision in interpretation. In fact, scores of repeat clients claim that the specificity and personal value of the guidance and advice is more than double what is usually available in readings done by conventional astrological methods!

A thought: your birth date and time -- do you have to take into consideration daylight savings time? Is that something that you might have missed in one or more of the inputs?
