Proposal: Music of the Spheres

8-0. Reached Quorum.—Chronos

Adminned at 03 Nov 2006 17:40:38 UTC

If the Rule “Planets” does not exist, this Proposal does nothing.

Create a “Signs” rule:

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

For all purposes, the Signs are construed to form a continue list, where the Sign of Aries immediately follows the Sign of Pisces.

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.

Create a “Music of the Spheres” rule:

Often, a Student may post an entry in the blog with the Title in the format “[Planet] in [Sign]”, where [Planet] is a Planet listed in the rule Planets and [Sign] is a Sign listed in the rule Signs. Those posts are referred as a “Planet in Sign post” and must conform with the following strictures:

1. If a Personal Planet has already been named today in a Planet in Sign post, no Planet in Sign post may be made which names that Planet;
2. If a Transpersonal Planet has already been named in the last 72 hours in a Planet in Sign post, no Planet in Sign post may be made which names that Planet;
3. If a Generational Planet has already been named in the last 7 days in a Planet in Sign post, no Planet in Sign post may be made which names that Planet;
4. Except for the first time they are named, A Planet in Sign Post which names a Transpersonal or Generational Planet must name the Sign immediately following the Sign named in the last Planet in Sign Post that named said Planet.

Create a “Astronomical Events” rule:

* Any Planets in the same Sign are in Conjunction. They appear to occupy the same position in the sky.
* Any Planets in opposite Signs are in Opposition. They appear to be on the opposite side of the sky as viewed from Earth.
* Any Planets in quadrate Signs are in Quadrature. They appear to form a 90 degrees angle in the sky.
* Any Planets in trine signs are in a Trine. They appear to form a 120 degrees angle in the sky.

I’ve over-simplificated the real-world rules for Planet movement and for aspect forming. If you like this, have fun.
