Triplicity Rulers in 15th Century Spain

May 23, 2020 at 11:34 am | Posted in Astrology | Leave a comment

Having recently watched an interview which Mychal A. Bryan did with Jenn Zahrt regarding triplicity rulers, I was inspired to reread the section of Diego de Torres’s 15th century manuscript on this topic. Below I have translated the section of the manuscript regarding the use of triplicity rulers in natal chart delineation, as it was taught to astrology students in 15th century Spain. I have tried to keep the translation fairly verbatim but on occasion have worded the text to make it flow more easily in modern English. I would ask that anyone quoting this translation give due credit to its source. An interesting feature of this text is that Diego de Torres utilizes the state and condition of the third or participating triplicity lord to modify the action of the first two lords.

A couple years ago I came across a 15th century manuscript entitled Opus Astrologicum by Diego de Torres, a university professor at the Colegio de San Bartolomé in Salamanca, Spain. The text appears to be his handwritten notes used for teaching a basic astrology course to students during the 1400s. Diego de Torres drew upon many medieval texts which had been translated from Arabic into Latin during the Middle Ages. I’ve been slowly working my way through the manuscript, written in old Castilian Spanish, to see how astrology was understood and taught to students during the 15th century.

El Colegio Mayor San Bartolomé, fundado en 1.401, es un centro propio de la Universidad de Salamanca que combina las modernas instalaciones en las que actualmente se encuentra, junto al Campus Unamuno, con el sabor de la tradición que nos da el ser el Colegio Mayor más antiguo de España.

Today’s Color Reading May 10, 2020

Use the power of your personal likes and dislikes of colors to guide you to find your answers.

To do this you may want to try some of these things:

  • The colors could be used to answer a specific question you ask.
  • The color cards could be divided up into time frames of the day, such as morning, afternoon, and evening to show how the day will unfold.

Once you find your purpose for using the color cards, tap into your personal intuition in ways like these:

  • What energy, emotions or feelings do the colors you see here today invoke in you?
  • Do you like or dislike the colors?
  • How do you see the colors in the way they relate to each other?
  • Do you feel they complement each other or do they clash?
  • Do you think the color cards flow from one to the other in…

Three planets Retrograde in step Astrology

“As above, so below” is the old Hermetic maxim. But this time it’s more like “here we are, they’re following us.”

As the world is still in quarantine lockdown unable to move forward now, three planets SATURN, VENUS AND JUPITER all turn RETROGRADE within 4 days of each other in step May 10-14th. We, the world and these three planets are all turning back time and not moving forwards.

Be careful what you wish for. 21 Pilots hit song “stressed out” lyrics “If I could turn back time, to the good old days.” has come true. You see the power of the WORD. We won’t feel so alone now with father time Saturn, Beautiful sexy artistic Venus and wise-cracking optimist Jupiter in the crib.


Retrogrades are not to be feared. That fearmongering Fishing clickbait is BS.

Rx is the…

Mercury in Taurus trine Jupiter in Capricorn 10th May 2020.

Mercury at 27 degrees 13 minutes Taurus is trine Jupiter at 27 degrees 13 minutes Capricorn at 2.37 pm GMT 3.37 pm BST 10th May 2020.

Making reliable and long standing plans for a bigger and brighter future, without being overly optimistic about the results that can be expected should go without a hitch. Mentally challenging tasks may be avoided but it’s not a priority to sort them out at the moment. Reviewing the financial involvement of signing contracts is a good idea. This could open your eyes to an expanse of options that have previously been overlooked. Maintaining a sensible level of positive thinking can be done with ease, and broadening your understanding of what is happening in the world in the present is less likely to be overwhelming.

The Sun at 20 degrees 27 minutes Taurus is sextile Neptune at 20 degrees 27 minutes Pisces 4.17 pm GMT 5.17 pm BST 10th May 2020.

Taking a look at what you are most sensitive to can be used as an opportunity to slowly but surely turn them into strengths. Subtle personality traits are more noticeable, although you could be cautious about expressing them. Stability and consistency help you to make sense of a lack of boundaries or the unknown, so you don’t lose your sense of direction. Go with the flow for now, even if you’re unsure what the conclusion will be. You’re able to alternate keeping your feet on the ground when you need to and when you can allow yourself to dream and escape reality for a while. Those who have a stable character are able to assist those who are vulnerable or gullible. Practical solutions can…

Deer Moon Astrology 5/9-5/10/2020

images (1)SATURDAY, MAY 09, 2020: Saturn stations to go retrograde on Monday, and will return to Capricorn on July 1st, 2020. Although we have been exploring innovative new approaches, Saturn tells us that we must take one more look at the structures of the past. Mercury (in mutual reception with Venus) trines Pluto this morning, encouraging us to deepen our objective understanding of the facts. Today offers opportunities to build our determination and the fixity of purpose to stay on a course of deepened understanding, despite the slings and arrows of our everyday challenges. Although it may seem simplistic, the idea that we must put first things first is incredibly important here, challenging us to stay on course, despite the temptation to be pulled off course by incredibly tempting distractions.



Today is the 130th day of 2020
42 days until the Summer Solstice
40 days until Mercury Retrograde
236 days until…

Astrology May 9, 2020: Mercury Trine Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” W. B. Yeats

Today is a great time to go deeper with our thinking as intellectual Mercury forms a harmonious, waxing trine to investigative Pluto Rx (at 9:17 am), an aspect that naturally poises us to trek below the surface to get to the core of a matter or to uncover what may be buried or hidden in the depths. It’s also kind of like we may sense in our gut now that there’s more to something than what’s being presented. With Mercury also deposited in grounded Taurus we are likely more apt to come away now with some practical insights or ideas that are very useful for our daily lives, especially if we do decide to do a little poking around. Also, reflecting on what it is that we really value (Taurus)…

‘A PATH THROUGH WOODS BRILLIANT WITH MULTICOLORED SPLENDOR’   is the Sabian Symbol* for the degree of the full Moon in Scorpio, which has been rising each night with the growing excitement of a large and energetic ‘Super’ Moon.  The   elation and promise of each full Moon is balance, or opposition, or synthesis, depending on how we receive the energy of contrast.  It’s having everything, amalgam, or feeling conflicted and torn limb from limb.  Here in the Northern Hemisphere, Taurus Sun  shines on new leaves and blossoms.  In the blossoming beauty of Taurus, the seeds of the next year are forming which will be ready for harvest in the time of Scorpio.  With the full Moon we dance in both seasons.  Taurus carries the beauty and sexual excitement of Venus, and Scorpio has the intensity of the dark mysteries of Pluto and the powerful male energy…
