Minderwiz, your detailed explanations make me (a) wish I had paid more attention to math in school, and (b) finally understand why the daily horoscopes in the papers are so off the mark. Still, it'd be pretty hard to explain in one soundbite to the non-astrologically inclined why that is so...!

Given the constraints you list re the system, or rather what we know of the system, what would Hellenistic astrologers back in the day have used their techniques for?

I would be keen to be your guinea pig for practice as long as it doesn't involve too much running on a treadmill (weak ligaments you know) but like Ronia I'm certainly not volunteering for a 'Your Stars' column Something tells me that by the time I'm done with today's stars, it'll be next month for the rest of the planet.
