THE AGE POINT SYSTEM - Part 3 copyright, Andrew J. Bevan, 2000
THE DISPOSITOR OF THE AGE POINT
judging from the direction of Age Point through the signs, always look
towards the ruler of that sign, or the almuten,
because the nature and state of this planet, both essential and
accidental, will very much determine whether the five year period to
come is for good or for ill.
whether the ruler is a fortune, or infortune, fruitful or barren,
whether it is in good state and placed in a fortunate house, or
angular, or combust, detriment, cadent, direct, swift in motion, slow
the ruler is a fortune, i.e. Venus or Jupiter, then
the native will perceive fortune in the period to come. There will be
ease and social enjoyment. But if the fortune is an ill condition,
i.e. by sign, house or aspect, there can be waste and loss, the
feeling of not getting anywhere, according to the nature of that
the ruler is an infortune, i.e. Mars or Saturn, then
the period will bring work, effort, ambition, industry and
accomplishment if that planet is in a good astrological state by sign,
house and aspect. But if the infortune is in a poor state, then there
will be obstacles, hindrance, accidents, loss, violence or disease.
There is the need to know that people are not likely to grant you many
favours. There is no free meal. There is the need to
follow the rules, look after self and personal well-being, avoid
overloads where possible.
the other hand, with the infortunes there could be a positive
involvement in social problems and/or effort towards restoring
deteriorated buildings, or confronting weaknesses in other areas of
importance, but this will not without some trouble or strife.
dignified infortune is more useful that a fortune
in a poor condition.
the dispositor of the Age Point is in an
angular house, then the native is brought forward to the
front scene of life. If that planet is in a good astrological state,
i.e. dignified, then the native will experience fortitude and
preferment. If the dispositor is in detriment or fall, the native will
observe scandal, crises, danger and controversy.
Age Point dispositor retrograde can be an indication
of weakness. There could be sickness, misdealings or the client can be
cheated and lied to, especially if that planet is in its detriment or
fall. However, there can be sudden and unlooked for events. If the
dispositor bears a positive signification, there may be an unexpected
Luminaries as dispositors, i.e. the Age Point moving
through either Aries, Taurus, Leo or Cancer, are generally an
indication of significant and vital periods in life, the gaining of
one's own, but it is necessary to observe the state of the luminaries,
whether strong, weak or void of course.
the sign dispositor is void of course, then no new
enterprise encountered during this period will have any future or
bring financial profit. Relationships are of another world. The native
should have seen that he or she was not getting anywhere and the
relationship was doomed to fail. However, the impressions gathered
from this epoch have a significant impact of the native and he or she
may discover him or herself through these hardships. Several clients
reported some supernatural experience. There could be interest for
meditation, discovering astrology, or the like. It is a good period
for art, improvisation, vacation, travelling abroad, etc.
Age Point dispositor at the end of a sign shows it is
a good period to work with the old, to pull the strings together, to
complete work and close matters. The sign dispositor in the beginning
of a sign indicates a period of pioneering and re-establishment.
the sign ruler is combust then there will be
imprisonment, loss or confinement. There may be fame and glamour but
the loss of privacy and personal freedom. The native is overwhelmed.
If Venus is combust, there may be an illegitimate relationship,
particularly if combust in Aries. Jupiter combust is ill for lending
or loaning money.
planet entering the Suns beams and combustion is
fortunate for those matters intended to be destructed, buried,
concealed, kept in confidence or meant to end in secrecy. The planet departing
from power of the Sun is good for discretion; or there could
be an enterprise encountered from a mean start, with very little
resources to go on. There is the need to overcome difficulties from
the dispositor of the Age Point is opposite the Moon,
then at that time the native shall either emigrate or be separated
from his or her home or family.
the dispositor of the Age Point is opposite the Sun,
and particularly when within 2 degrees of orb, then
the native shall be brought to ruin. This disposition would prove more
useful if it was the natives business to demolish and bring things
down, as it would be if he or she were working with the destruction of
old buildings, the disposal of waste or fighting weeds.
oppositions to the dispositor of the Age Point indicate circumstances
impressed upon the native through exchange with the environment.
Do not forget the manner in which the Age Point dispositor is contained.
Planets on either side of the dispositor are likely to impress that
centre planet according to their combined natures and how closely that
planet is contained.
Notice the nature and quality of planets to which the dispositor of the
Age Point is joined. By that I mean planets that are in conjunction. If
that planet is in a fortunate condition and ruler of a fortunate house,
then good can be expected. However, if the dispositor of the Age Point
is joined to Saturn in the sign of his fall or detriment, i.e. Aries
or Cancer, and he is ruler of the 10th house, then some public
embarrassment or complicated situation can be expected. If the planet
to who the dispositor of the Age Point is joined is ruler of the 7th,
then this will often indicate the starting of a significant
relationship, i.e. a partnership or marriage.
the dispositor of the Age Point is elevated in the
chart the native will be stronger and placed above peers or
competitors at this point of time. It indicates a period of greater
impact and importance.
