THE AGE POINT SYSTEM - Part 1 copyright, Andrew J. Bevan, 2000
Age Point System is a simple but highly efficient
method of astrological diagnosis and prognostication that originates
from concepts of ancient astrology. In the mid 80's I started to pay
attention to fragments of text found in M. Manilius'
"Five Books on Astrology" and William Lilly's
"Christian Astrology" and started to practice upon what
might prove to be one of the most startling, yet until now neglected
tools of horoscope interpretation.
using the Age Point System, past, present and future comes to
surface at a glance without having to get into the detail of
additional horoscope calculation. It is all there in the birth chart
and you never loose eye of that radix!
the Age Point method is simple and straight cut,
throughout this book I will take the reader to depth in the technique,
also examining finer details of astrology with their reference to the
Age Point and deductions that may be made.
The Philosophy of the Birth Chart
first! The birth chart, in the conventional sense, is nothing but a
map of the heavens, a celestial diagram, which primarily shows the
apparent positions of the planets within our Solar System as seen from
Earth at the time and location provided for a given moment of
birth. According to astrological philosophy; the planets, signs,
houses, aspects and other fragments which combine to make up the total
of the chart, are the bearers of meaning which occur in ever-changing
combinations as the Universe continues to unfold in never-exhausted
patterns. The primary role of the astrologer lies in
deciphering these meanings and determining what may be termed
as the 'lot' of the individual. The astrologers
secondary task of labour, particularly in a modernistic sense, is that
of bringing the client to the point of being able to balance
his or her 'lot'; to resolve conflicts in the chart through
the increase of personality awareness and to trade any unwanted
out-fall of events into a fashion of the natives liking.
Early beginnings and the prenatal
planetary and celestial pattern found in the birth chart are a
gathering of those influences, those events and circumstances leading
up to birth; Parental and prenatal influences, the state
of the mother and father, their situation and interplay them between.
There is the influence of heritage and particulars of the family.
Events that occur during the months of gestation leave
their significant impression and there could be other
influential environmental issues like the part or role played by a
third party. The birth chart provides information regarding those
forces that reign during birth through people present and the
nature and order in which things occurred, whether demanding, tense or
of ease. Lastly, the chart provides information on those happenings,
events and influences that forms the new
born child as it moves through the months and years of early
childhood. (Refer to Life*Time Astrology by A.T.Mann)
the early yearnings of fetus or newborn child, the individual is as a
victim of circumstance. Whether these external influences are
good or bad, the native is totally absorbent and as a sponge for
input. It is this pattern of circumstantial input that
is reflected in the birth chart and which forms the basis
of the psychological structure.
It is essentially this pattern, the reflection of the psychological
structure, which is a summary of input, that is spread out in time and
space, and which results in those events, the turns in life
and phenomena of circumstantial choice that may be located by the
AGE POINT. This
gives the native the possibility to foresee, understand and deal with
these phenomena, also through their periodical reoccurrence. In this
manner it is possible to use the Age Point to lift both internal and
external patterns of expression to higher levels of experience.

personality you are who you are today as a result of those
events previously encountered and your ability to respond to, digest
and mediate these phenomena.
