THE AGE POINT SYSTEM - Part 5 copyright, Andrew J.Bevan, 2000
THE AGE POINT DIRECTED TO THE PLANETS
the Age Point is directed to a planet, or into a sign containing a
planet, or from one planet to another, consider the following:
the natural signification of that planet, whether a
fortune or an infortune, whether that planet is in a good or poor
zodiacal state and whether it is the ruler of a fortunate or
fortunate houses are the 1st, 10th,
11th, 2nd. The unfortunate houses are the 8th, 12th,
6th, 3rd. A fortunate astrological state is when a planet is in it's own
sign, exaltation, triplicity, term or face. Hayiz
or halb may regulate the performance of that planet
to greater efficiency of the better.
the Age Point moves from one planet to another, then
judge from the combined meanings of those two planets, with emphasis
on the orientation towards the planet which the Age Point moves
towards and which is entering the horizon of the native. Note the time
it takes for the Age Point to move from the one planet to the next
because a project or affair may have duration according that interval.
lights indicate matters of prominence and personal
importance; the fortunes ease; the infortunes
obstacles, work and hard effort. The outer planets
bring about extraordinary effects. Significators retrograde will often
lead to unlooked for events.
importance of establishing and manifesting an expression of the self,
the masculine part of the personality. There are often significant
events connected to the career, work, enterprise, leadership or public
recognition. Dealing with men, the father or people of fame or
authority. Often recreation and childbirth. In childhood important
events which relate to the men in the family, advancement of the
father, impressions from teachers. Opportunities are more obvious in
a new expression of the feminine part of the personality to surface,
important contacts with women, listening to personal needs, making
changes, moving house, travelling abroad, dealing with the public,
recognition, recapturing who you are, your outstart on life, being
born, forming a home or family, dealing with one's fertility, a woman
may give birth to a child.
of commerce and education come in focus, making decisions, contracts,
a busy period, contact with young people, mental stimuli, discussion,
debate, new interests, statement of opinion, travel and communication,
being informed. If Mercury is ill placed; being tricked, misguided and
lied to. As Mercury is interchangeable of nature, pay particular
attention to the house of his rulership. If Mercury is in a feminine
sign, give priority to his feminine rulership, i.e. the house with
Virgo on the cusp. If Mercury is in a masculine sign, look first to
is the lesser fortune and signifies an easy and enjoyable period of
life, involvement in music or art. Lucrative events, comfort, good
news, improvement in income or standard of living. Friends, social
opportunities, attractive people and surroundings, giving and
receiving love, affection, having an affair, meeting your partner,
getting married. If Venus is ill placed there may be indulgence or
problems in the above.
is the lesser infortune and if in an ill condition will signify
conflict, accidents, theft and loss. There may be fire, surgery,
fevers or infection. The native gets into trouble, for speeding, gets
cut back and receives unexpected cost. If Mars is in a good state,
there may be enterprise, going to business, building on a house, etc.
Contact with the police, military or sportsmen. Passions are strong.
It is a question of channelling heat, energy and drive into a
constructive and regulated outlet.
greater fortune brings travel, education, opportunity, good luck, ease
and wealth. He signifies legislations, certificates, diplomas, permits
and passports. A tendency to expand horizons and put on weight.
Generally one of the happiest and most successful periods of life.
However, if the planet is in a dangerous position, i.e. in a poor
state, the ruler of an evil house or conjunct an evil fixed star,
there may be danger through exaggeration and carelessness.
is the greater infortune and brings the native to responsibility;
whether brought to court or brought to office, one often has to deal
with tough and unpopular issues. Classical texts warn of public
scandal so watch your back. With Saturn there is no free meal.
could be strain, illness, determent of health, obstacles, delay,
separation, loss, old age, death in the environment or unexpected cost
or taxes. Saturn indicates the repressions of the chart and could
provide the opportunity to work these out in a meaningful manner. And
there could be purpose relating to real estate, or the purchase of
property and buildings. When Saturn is retrograde keep eyes open for
things that are hidden, corrupted or in weakness. Also, the retrograde
Saturn is more turbulent.
is a barren planet and in the charts of women he occasionally brings
difficulties in matters concerning fertility or pregnancy. Sometimes
there is a miscarriage, or the woman may chose to abort. She discovers
it was an untimely event or she got pregnant for the wrong reasons.
Yet, other times she may take responsibility for the situation and
give birth to a health, yet unintended child. Either way it is the
child that is the teacher.
In one way or another we become aware of the realities of life and
have to deal with these.
change of job, a separation, divorce, relocation or even emigration
can be in store. There is a need for more elbow space and room for
individual particulars. Events move fast and the unexpected is to be
expected. There is plenty of stimuli and the desire to branch out.
Moving towards the new and breaking from the old. Seeking out things
that are "different". Attracted to excitement and to grab to
moment. Existentialism. New attachments are free-roaming and
independent, short term, or need to prove themselves over time.
often fogs out the native. It's like a 12th house experience - things
go wrong, the weather turns against you and letters get lost in
official bureaucracy. The native might feel disarmed or pacified. The
need to safeguard health and efficiency. In childhood there could be
contact with old people, or old people are weakened and reduced. In
the years of adulthood there could be energy-leeks or unemployment.
Show caution with wish-wash people, full of wish-wash ideas. There is
need to have a working plan, follow a users manual, have business-like
reference points in personal matters and stick to them. Sometimes
having learnt something from basic - as if everything was written in
code or a foreign language. Fill this period with inspiration and do
something selfless and idealistic. Enjoy music, art, smells, scents,
oils and colour. Do something for the weak, poor, old or needy. It is
an opportune period for travel, foreign countries, and culture. Lift
the inner experience of yourself and others, and let the world drift
is forceful and often separative. The contact is often related to
circumstances of which you have no control. Issues could include
death, birth, surgery, blackmail or sex. So watch out. You could make
contact with influential people, or yourself be in the position of
powerful decision-making. Your life may be due to a significant
change. This may be just what you've been waiting for. Pluto is highly
passionate and there is a pressure increase. Pluto with Mars shows two
knives. If no other project is on the run, it could be a warning of
accident or controversy. On the definite positive side Pluto may bring
hidden treasures or resources to the surface. There may be some
mystical transform or initiation. Pluto with Saturn is an up-hill
struggle with the culmination of many issues. The Age Point moving
from Pluto to Venus or vice versa is an apt time for financial
re-evaluation or a powerful affair or sexual attraction.
both nodes flag a post of social or karmic connections. It could mean
a marriage or a birth - or at another point of life a significant
legislative contract, agreement or group venture. The north node is
more so an indication of being surrounded by the right people, good
teachers and support. The north node is generally more ample in supply
and affairs are more smooth-going. The south node might be an
indication of a weakness, retracement or vacuum. A birth could be
tight or demand a greater effort on parties involved.
Age Point connecting up with Chiron stirs up some interesting
phenomena that give evidence of the importance and meaning of this
maverick ice-ball of a minor planet. Astronomically Chiron is tossed
to and fro between the worlds of Saturn and Uranus, and its presence
in the chart eventually shows where and when you get tossed up. Chiron
is an inconvenient benefic. It breaks up patterns that have been stuck
for too long and it opens new doors that allow you to try out yours
skills of survival. There is turbulence connected to the moment and
often there will be a substitute, experiment or temporary solution.
Often there is a key-person or key-moment that plays a significant
part, it could be a teacher, mediator or guru figure, sometimes an
alternative practitioner or even a half-brother or sister. Chiron
freaks you out but is a Godsave in the long run. Chiron shows the act
of fate and someone who does not belong or is not accepted on the same
grounds of others within that field. But Chiron participates and is
the means to an end. This minor planet may often show a role of adopting
Age Point crossing or aspecting the Ascendant does not bear
special significance since it will occur at equal points in time for
all nativities. It is a neutral. However, I suppose the re-occurrence
of the birth experience could be utilized a significant period of
refuelling - if the native can find the time to undertake the
vitalizing actions. The Age Point crosses the ascendant at the age of
60 years. The first semi-square at 7,5 years, the first square at 15
years, the sesquiquadrate at 22,5 years, the opposition at 30 years...
and so on.
