User Options in Decennials Starting Sequence.
« on: July 16, 2021, 02:57:11 PM »
Hi Jean and Ed,

I am very glad to see that Planetdance calculates the Decennials classical predictive technique. I would like to ask you to add an option in it so that the user can select which planet the sequence starts from.

Please see the attached example chart: 16 Jul 2021, 7.31 am, Greenwich, London, UK, Asc 19 (tropical) Leo. It is a day chart and the Sun is in the 12th house, both by Pophyry and whole signs. Because the Sun is the Sect Light and is in a bad house, Planetdance starts the Decennials sequence from the Moon (in the 3rd house by Porphyry and whole signs). However, while the Moon is in her joy there, this is also a cadent house.

I would like Planetdance to give the user the option of selecting which planet to start the technique with. In this chart, instead of the Moon, it could be Mars instead - the first planet in the Ascendant. The way Planetdance calculates Decennials is more in line with Firmicus and Hephaistio of Thebes, but I would very much like to have the Valens option. In other words, when the Lights are in bad places and/or those not conducive to business, the user gets to choose which planet will start the division of the times.

I am asking this for practical reasons as I have real live charts with similar positions of the Lights where the default starting planet option does not work/does not reflect the life of the native.

Thank you.

Hi Zagata - I will see what I can do. I need to finish some work on the medieval traditional chart script first. I'll let you know how I get on. Ed
