New Workshop from Project Hindsight!

Whole-Sign "Houses", Equal Places, Quadrant Divisions:
No Problem in the Original System of Greek Astrology

Project Hindsight recently completed a new audio recording. It is an intense 12 ˝ hour discussion with companion pdf on the issue of “house” division in Greek astrology.

The immediate occasion for this conversation was Episode 54 of Chris Brennan's Astrology Podcast, in which Mr. Brennan debated the issue of whole-sign houses with Deborah Houlding. This prompted Robert Schmidt to pull together the various insights he has had on this issue over the last many years and present them in the format of a conversation with Dale Nelson and Bill Johnston, two persons who themselves have had a long-standing interest in the problem of house division.

The intent of the conversation was not merely to discuss the issues involved in house division, but to resolve the problem. Robert Schmidt has accomplished this as far as the surviving Hellenistic sources allow. Effectively, the solution consists in understanding how whole-sign places ("houses") and the system of equal places from the ascending degree were conceived of together and were intended to complement one another from the outset. It is not a matter of choosing one system over the other.

Without taking into account the subtle distinctions that arise when these two systems are properly combined, it is impossible to accurately delineate planets in houses in the manner intended by the founding Greek astrologers.

As far as quadrant division is concerned, the so-called Porphyry system was originally introduced for the exalted purpose of qualifying one of the two lights as the predominator of the chart, which was needed in a variety of universal inquiries directed at the native’s life as a whole. To identify these quadrant divisions with specific topics in human life is to commit a conceptual faux pas.

The Wait Is Over !

A Basic Course in Hellenistic Astrology:
An Introduction to The System of Hermes

After many years of work, and based on his long involvement with the original sources since the beginning of Project Hindsight in 1993, the first part of Robert Schmidt's premier audio course on Hellenistic natal astrology has just been released. Planned for twelve parts in all, this course is much more than a simple introduction. In it you will find all the core concepts and techniques of the original system of Hellenistic astrological practice, a system that Schmidt calls the The System of Hermes in honor of its putative founder, organized into a coherent and self-contained system. There is an abundance of new material never before presented, and everything else has been completely rethought. At the present time, this course is the only way available of gaining a comprehensive overview of the practice of Hellenistic astrology.

The cost of the course is $200.00 per part for subscribers to the TARES series, and $250.00 per part for non-subscribers. Part One is available for immediate download. If you wish a CD in MP3 format as well, add an additional $6.00 for shipping & handling.

The first part is ten hours long, and each remaining part will contain at least six hours of lectures. Subsequent parts of the course should be released at the rate of one every month or two.
