Proposal: Complex Configurations, A Wiki, and other quality elements.

8-1, reaches quorum. - Elias IX

Adminned at 05 Nov 2006 12:31:30 UTC

If “Proposal: Music of the Spheres” has not been Enacted, the rest of this proposal does nothing.

Change text of the “Signs” rule to:

The Signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius, and Pisces.

For all purposes, the Signs are construed to form a cyclicly ordered list, as given in the previous paragraph, and in which the Sign of Aries immediately follows the Sign of Pisces.

The Elements are Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.

The Qualities are Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable

Each sign has a single Element and a single Quality, as indicated in parentheses on the Zodiac Wiki after each Sign.

Two Signs are said to be opposite if they are listed 6 positions apart from each other in the list above E.g.: Aries is opposite to Libra, Taurus to Scorpio, etc.

Two Signs are said to be quadrate if they are listed 3 positions apart from each other in the list above E.g.: Aries is quadrate to Capricorn and Cancer, Taurus is quadrate to Aquarius and Leo, etc.

Two Signs are said to be trine if they are listed 4 positions apart from each other in the list above E.g.: Aries is trine to Sagitarius and Leo, Taurus is trine to Capricorn and Virgo, etc.

Note that distinct signs share a Quality if and only if they are opposite or quadrate.  Distinct signs share an Element if and only if they are trine.

Add a paragraph to the end of the “Music of the Spheres” rule reading:

Once such a post has been made, [Planet] is considered to be in [Sign].  Any given planet may be in at most one Sign at a time.  All Students are encouraged to update the Zodiac Wiki to indicate which Planets are in each Sign.

Create subrules of “Astronomical Events” called “Aspects” and “Configurations”.  Move the text of the “Astronomical Events” rule (not including subrules) to the “Aspects” rule.  Give the “Configurations” rule the text:

At any time, if more than two Planets are in Conjunction to each other, they are said to form a Stellium.

At any time, if three or more Planets are all in Quadrature and/Or Opposition to each other, and they are at exactly 3 different Signs, they are said to form a T-Square.

At any time, if four or more Planets are all in Quadrature and/Or Opposition to each other, and they are at exactly 4 different Signs, they are said to form a Grand Cross.

At any time, if three or more Planets are all in Trine to each other, and they are at exactly 3 different Signs, they are said to form a Grand Trine.

imperial I’m not so sure we need this many planet alignments yet; the ones in the original proposal may suffice.

Yes, I agree that it might be too complex.

Oops—I used “Scorpius” and “Capricornus” (the names of constellations) instead of “Scorpio” and “Capricorn” (names of Zodiac signs).  Please consider it a typo so it’s consistent with “Proposal: Permutations”
