Enjoy it!


PREFACE by Ciro Discepolo

This short book intends to suggest to the reader a practical method to evaluate and compare the potentialities of a synastry: as regards love, business, studies and other realms of interface.
This method is based both on the teachings of Tradition and the contributions that comparative studies have offered to this discipline, for example the statistical study of Carl Gustav Jung and of the Nobel Prize recipient for Physics - Wolfgang Pauli, about the excellence of the Sun-Moon conjunction in a relationshp. 
In my opinion, for the purpose of comparison, we need a basic mathematization of the system: referring to a 32-point relation as good and a 13-point relation as low, is not quoting numbers from the Holy Bible, but an allusion that reflects realty and is the result of many decades of tests involving tens of thousands of studied samples.
On the other hand, classifications in terms of “Good”, “Not bad”, “Not so terrible”, “Modestly good”, “Sufficient”, etc., appear nebulous and imprecise, and in my experience, does not take us anywhere. 
For many years, I have also studied the mid-points between the skies of two subjects, but did not get valid results.
As it is with all my publications, many practical examples are included in this book as well along with a set of detailed instructions to test all that has been explained and suggested on examples of interest to the reader. If the system is convincing, use it. Otherwise throw the book away.
If I am allowed the indulgence of briefly praising this book, I’d like to add that it is probably the first example, or at least one of the first examples, of a collaboration between an astrologer who practises the system of Judicial Astrology (or Predictive Astrology or Astrologia Gallica of Morin de Villefranche and André Barbault) and the Astrology of an expert colleague, Danila Madau Perra, who teaches Yoga and is a Buddhist, but who accepts, approves of and also practices Aimed Solar Returns. In short, it is a true example of an attempt to study Astrology in a holistic way.
In this context, I’d like to tell you about an interesting episode concerning a student of mine whose quality of life has greatly improved after he began relocating every year for his Aimed Solar Returns. 
He recently asked me where he could go to live for at least a year, relocating his Natal Chart for a city in which he could obtain a good period for love. I suggested that he go to Pattaya in Thailand and, in fact, he lived a year with a lot of sex, which was what he wanted.
He visited a Buddhist temple there one day, and met a Buddhist monk. They discussed astrology (as you know Buddhist monks know Astrology very well), in English, and my student asked the monk: “Sir, what do you think of Aimed Solar Returns?”. He replied that it is a very good thing. Then, my student asked him why, in his opinion, many western astrologers, including those with Buddhist leanings, say that they don’t believe in this practice. The monk answered: “Because their present Karma doesn’t let them understand that they have this fantastic possibility at their disposal!”.

PREFACE by Danila Madau Perra

Astrology has the highest purpose of helping human beings to become increasingly aware of the subtle bond that unites all things because they are part of a totality. Humanity is becoming increasingly aware of the close relationship between all aspects of life, of the active part that an individual has in his own life, of his own responsibility and actions that do not depend on a blind and inevitable force, that we usually call destiny.
The ultimate purpose of Astrology is to help Man to realize himself through a series of concrete actions, aimed to adopt certain conduct, independent from outside influences, to become a free soul, driven only by the light of truth. Like a deft charioteer, Man needs to reach his goal, recognizing the obstacles are that he finds in his way, his weaknesses, beneficial influences, and his inherent talents. If there is no desire to know all of these influences in detail, he can never fully be master of himself.
Man may, with the help of this wonderful Art, understand in what direction he can develop himself inwardly, becoming able to filter out harmful influences, make better use of positive resonances and finally become impervious to events.
It is we who create the world in which we live and not vice versa. It manifests itself depending on whether we see it with an optimistic or pessimistic view.
“Dharma is dominated by the mind, has the mind as a principal element and is composed of the mind. If an individual speaks or acts with a corrupt mind,  unhappiness follows him like the wheel of a cart, which follows the tracks of the one who drags it. If a person speaks or acts with a calm mind, happiness follows him like a shadow that never departs.”, reveals Gautama, the Buddha at the beginning of the book Dhammapada and giving voice to an inescapable truth of which we can be victims or authors. It all depends on us.
So in a love relationship, the reason two people are attracted to each other has its deep and unfathomable explanation. The only possible way is to trust in the two souls involved in the rapport. Sure, it is also possible we can decide on the bond we want for us analytically, we also have this power: We can clearly have what we want and ask the universe for this. It works!
Between us researchers and practitioners of Yoga, interested in spiritual matters, we like to ask each other from time to time: “Has what you ordered at the cosmic supermarket arrived?”. If we had clear ideas at the time of the order, the answer is invariably an enthusiastic “Yes!”
Many human beings are not yet masters of their lives and have not yet taken the reins of their chariot, so life itself acts on their behalf often pushing them in unpredictable directions. These experiences are, however, opportunities to practice and to grow in their awareness of Love that pervades all things and is always present. Fatal attractions, complicated relationships, lack of understanding can become occasions for learning for the soul of these subjects. Sometimes the couple works, but more often it does not. Why? There is an answer to this question and the book that you have in your hand provides it. The answer is: “Because it is necessary that it does not work”. As long as you delegate to someone or something outside of you the choice of what you want, you do not grow. As soon as you understand that you can roll up your sleeves, sit down, and write on a sheet of paper what you want in the smallest details from your present or future partners, you have made an order to the Cosmos that wants to give you just what you want.
This is the advantage of being connected to God.

How does all of this fit with Synastry in Astrology?
Doing an exercise on reflection, I once asked my students to sit down with a pen and paper in hand, and write in detail, what they expected or wanted from their love rapport. They were to list on one side of the sheet what they wanted and on the other what they did not. I thought that the secret was all here: starting to take the reins of their lives in their own hands beginning with a list of what they wanted and also making clear to themselves what was not good in their case. But I found that it wasn’t as simple an exercise that I thought it should be.
Most of them did not know what to write and even if some did, the list was much longer on the side the sheet where they had to write the negative aspects of the relationship. This intriguing outcome of the execise made me wonder as to what made them do so. They could have asked for whatever they wanted and yet they left the sheet blank.
I thought perhaps it was a singular case where I had a group of students, all of whom coincidentally had been through disturbing experiences in the past. Determined to probe this matter further, I tried out similar exercises on other groups, which brought about the revelation that 80% of the students surveyed did not know what to ask for! This was the beginning of my seminars on Astrology to read the natal Chart. How was I to say to each one of them, a wonderful and unique Microcosm, what could be the desire of their hearts? I could not have any idea of what they wanted and it was only appropriate that they discovered this by themselves.
Participants in the seminars learnt, with a guide by their side, to read the great mine of information that the natal Chart is. Metaphorically they learnt to pull up water from their own well. My students recognized their temperament doing this, their intimate needs, their frequent inner contradictions, and they learned to accept responsibility for the success or failure of the relationship.
The analysis of Synastry between their natal Chart and that of a possible current or former partner indicated the rest of the information. Knowing the potential of their pairing, helped them to take responsibility to face difficulties, to recognize the influences they have received from the partner and especially not be passive spectators, or even worse, judges of their relationships.
As a spiritual researcher and Yogini, I do not contemplate misfortune in my vision of the world. In a natal Chart there are harmonious aspects that my philosophy associates with talents, they are what we do well and that in this life are support for new learning. The discordant aspects are the territory in which the soul gets experience through conflicts and tension, about those aspects of the self whose understanding is not yet complete.
The other becomes the mirror of this internal separation of the individual and the relationship becomes the extraordinary land where people can express their nature and try to understand new aspects of themselves that will expand their horizons. Have you ever thought of this? You are students in the school of Life, you are learning every day, in every moment of your existence, and instead of paying to receive this invaluable learning, you are paid. Your reward is love, the one with a capital L.
This is a love letter that more or less says:
“Light of my life,
you have come to make shine the light of wisdom on the path of my soul.
Centuries of darkness are being dissolved
before the powerful rays of your help.
Our souls have reunited after years of waiting.
They have vibrated with eternal energy.
We have met here, because we have already met in the past.
Together we will fly up to infinity,
together we will dissipate forever all our limitations and the fog
and we will lose ourselves in the infinite Life.”

Does it not seem a love letter from another time? It was written by one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time to his Guru. If you liked it; if it ignites the desire to love in your heart; you too write one like this, as an act of gratitude to thank your current partner or one that you will have, because they are, or will be, the mirror of your soul, revealing your weaknesses and your inner unresolved problems.
Be eager to dissolve all your blocks, the partners are here in order to reveal them: accept your share of responsibility in the rapport and do not get discouraged along the way. You can only improve!
Astrology, thanks to the reading of the natal Chart and synastryc analysis, is at your service.

Enjoy it!

Dear Mr. Ciro,

First of all thank you for everything. I just realised my last email read: "thank you for you." I meant to type, thank you so much!

I would like you to know that I made the effort of going to Red Lake, for my solar return, I purchased a ticket on a last minute, begged the charter plane from Winnipeg to Red Lake to wait for me, cause my flight was 2:15 to 7:25, and the last flight from Winnipeg to that place was around 7pm. They agreed to wait; as I was praying on the plane, sitting there, I noticed technicians idly sitting outside, forty minutes later, the pilot said technicians couldn't resolve the problem and the flight was delayed. I called the charter plane and they apologised but they couldn't wait for a passenger for an hour.

I resigned to my fate and cancelled all my flights. To say the least, Air Canada wrote me a check for a refund, when I went to the bank two days later, I found out the cheque was dated 2010.

I would like to know, if you could do a reading for me, and provide any solutions for my Solar Return. I purchased three of your books at the amazon; the solar return, the transit returns, and the medical astrology. It says with Mars in 12th, that I could be pretty much in deep sh*&*, but maybe I am interpreting it wrong. So please, will you please help me? I celebrated my 33rd birth day here in Vancouver. February 7, 1979 birthlocation: bacolod city, philippines 10n40 122e57.

I would like to know if I should be preparing for my burial. If not, I would like to make the best out of my circumstances. I noticed things didn't particularly go my way, since december 2011. I wonder how long does this effect lasts and starts.

Thank you so much for your kindness.


Kirsten from Vancouver

Dear Kirsten,
I am sorry that you did not have succeed in reaching Red Lake, but remember that it is prudent to be in the place of the birthday at least three days before the moment of the Solar Return.
However you are calm because you won't die. You will be one hard and difficult year in everything, but this ugly experience will be very positively for you for all your future.
Read my book "Aimed Solar And Lunar Returns" where it is explained what to do when you don't depart (the exorcism of the symbols).
Many wishes.

Caro Maestro Ciro, tra qualche mese scatterà la mia rs e dato che ormai da qualche anno la faccio seguendo le tue indicazioni, vorrei chiederti e chiedere anche a qualcuno del blog cosa pensate di questa località: si tratta di Manila nelle Filippine. Non so usare molto bene Google Earth e faccio un po' fatica a capire se per caso in quella stessa zona (sempre che vada bene) c'è un posto che la perfezionerebbe. Non mi piace molto la luna in cuspide 11/12. I miei dati sono 7 maggio 1959 a Roma ore 17,33. Un grazie di cuore Francesca di Roma

Cara Francesca, credo che quella qui sotto sia la ASR buona per il tuo 2012. Molti auguri.

Buongiorno al Sig. Discepolo e a tutto il blog,
mi chiamo Simone e sono un appassionato di astrologia da qualche anno e, dopo aver letto un libro vostro(transiti e rivoluzioni solari), avrei desiderio di sperimentare un viaggio di compleanno all’estero seguendo le regole esposte nei suoi libri; sono nato a Pescara il 21-11-1974 ore 15.15 e stavo pensando di passare il prossimo compleanno a Las Vegas ma speravo di avere un vostro parere sull'efficacia di questa ASR; non essendo molto pratico non vorrei peggiorare la mia situazione...grazie di un vostro gentile riscontro.

p.s. oltre al libro citato quali altri suoi libri dovrei comprare per progettare le ASR in maniera esatta o almeno senza rischiare di commettere errori tecnici?

Benvenuto Simone da Pescara!

La tua scelta di Las Vegas è quasi buona e denota che sei stato attento a molte cose. Tuttavia non possiamo posizionare l'AS di RSM in X Casa nell'anno in cui hai transiti molto pesanti: di questi tempi  potresti rischiare anche il licenziamento. Teoricamente lo rischiano tutti, ma le stelle si prenderanno prima quei soggetti con RSM pericolose.
Ti consiglio decisamente l'altra che vedi qui sotto. Molti auguri.

Caro Ciro , volevo chiederti se secondo te con techniche simili alla radiestesia o radionica un giorno si possa arrivare ad intervenire sulle configurazioni astrologiche negative o no ? Te lo chiedo perchè io non sono un grande amico dei viaggi aerei intercontinentali , avverto in essi qualcosa di profondamente contro natura ,da Tempi Ultimi lontani dalla funzione e dallo stile di vita originario dell'essere umano , come non facente parte del ciclo normale dell'esistenza umana , soprattutto se fatti in maniera continua . Per questo più che con le RSM intervengo sulle configurazioni astrologiche negative con l'antica magia planetaria , ma non perchè sono contrario alle RSM , ben venga ogni aiuto legittimo per aiutare a vivere meglio .Piuttosto avverto anche una certa fragilità nel sistema delle RSM , Dio ( nel mio caso che sono credente ) oppure la Natura ( per chi non è credente ) ha organizzato un sistema perfetto , sta alla nostra sapienza scoprire le regole e le possibilità di ciò che esiste , visto che non possiamo creare nulla e siamo venuti in questa dimensione apparentemente ( e ripeto : apparentemente...)per "caso" e senza la nostra volontà . Quindi parto dall'assioma base che ci deve essere un sistema di migliorare configurazioni astrologiche negative senza usare un sistema fragile come i viaggi aerei intercontinentali . Basta una crisi economica veramente grave , delle grandi guerre , la creazione futura di blocchi geopolitici avversi l'uno all'altro , e si potrà dire velocemente addio alla "pacchia" dei viaggi di massa turistici di tutti in ogni luogo . Da parte mia sto cercando un sistema diverso dalla magia , per diversi motivi , non perchè la magia non funzioni , ma perchè ha spesso effetti e conseguenze impreviste e negative , si scatenano forze incontrollabili , e perchè essendo io musulmano sono stato avvertito dai sapienti religiosi che già occuparmi di astrologia è fonte di dubbi sulla mia ortodossia , l'usare la magia invece mi pone in una situazione di aver passato la linea rossa del permesso e del tollerabile . Grazie Ciro , mi interesserebbe molto avere il tuo parere franco su questo . Cari Saluti da Roberto Minichini

Caro Roberto,
sulla possibilità che non si possa più volare in ogni parte del mondo, con tutto il rispetto, faccio quel gesto apotropaico che usa molto a Napoli... Sulla possibilità che un giorno, con la Centrale Callegari o con altri sistemi, si possa sostituire il viaggio aereo, è una vecchia speranza di Pino Valente e anche una ricerca dell'ing. Callegari, figlio del grande Giovambattista Callegari. Noi non abbiamo nulla contro la magia: basta che funzioni. Cari saluti.

caro maestro, al fine di preparare al meglio la prossima rivoluzione ho bisogno di te perché ho cercato diverse soluzioni ma sono tutte a rischio. Preso atto che mancano ancora 4 mesi al compleanno devo dire che il mio giove in decima incollato al MC con il transito del medesimo in decima natale sta dando i suoi frutti. Ho comprato casa, ho raggiunto un'indipendenza lavorativa non comune, sono aumentate le mie entrate di denaro, un sacco di spese è vero, ma anche qualche soldo in più..e sono convinto che il bello debba ancora venire cioè quando venere transiterà in decima e quando i due astri benevoli si congiungeranno passando sulla mia venere natale proprio in decima! Cmq i goal del mio nuovo anno voglio siglarli nella carriera professionale. All'interno dell'azienda svolgo la mansione di super visor area manager,ossia gestisco l'area venditori e in primissima linea cmq vendo tutto il giorno anche di domenica se ho appuntamenti!! La migliore sarebbe a nord di nuuk in groenlandia però con 2 quesiti: considerando il mio goal mettere venere e giove in decima mi porta a chiudere contratti su contratti? o come dicevi tu sarebbe meglio piazzarli in ottava o in seconda? L'altro problema, e forse il più importante, è che in quella località marte si trova a 2 gradi o poco più dalla cuspide della seconda quindi pericolosamente vicino alla prima. Come già ti ho scritto in qualche post sto attuando la correzione di nascita e in sette mesi dove marte ha cambiato 6 case ha sempre anticipato l'ingresso facendo abbassare l'orario di quasi dieci minuti quindi verso 8.50 e non le 8.59. Non so mi piacerebbe capire insieme a te le possibilità. 27 giugno 1982 ore8.50/59 mantova.
Gabri Mantova

Caro Gabri, alle domande hai già risposto tu. Qui sotto trovi il mio consiglio. Quest'anno è impossibile potenziare la seconda e l'ottava. Molti auguri.

Buona domenica a tutti, per Simone: Male (Maldive) sarebbe molto positivo per te poichè Giove è in decima e l'Ascendente in quinta casa radix, invece Las Vegas secondo me non è un'ottima scelta.
Per Francesca: a Manila il Sole è troppo vicino alla sesta e Saturno troppo vicino alla decima, buona è invece Perth in Australia dove hai stellium in quinta con Venere in sesta e Giove cuspide quinta/sesta! Niko.

Grazie, da parte di Simone e di Francesca a Niko per il suo contributo.

per Roberto: non so cosa risponderà il maestro ma sento di intervenire per rispondere a una tua osservazione: secondo te le RSM sarebbero un sistema fragile in relazione agli sconvolgimenti sociali e politici che potrebbero chiudere le barriere tra le diverse nazioni. Allo stesso modo, intervengo io, potrebbero curarsi solo quelli che hanno soldi, oppure potrebbero chiudere gli ospedali delle nostre città impedendoci di guarire. Tutto è fragile, e secondo il mio parere non possiamo stabilire il grado di importanza di una soluzione in base al grado di "fragilita" che troviamo in esso.
E poi, se consideri il viaggio come qualcosa di innaturale, allora è innaturale pure l'archetipo che ne sta alla base: quello della trasformazione.
La linea di confine tra naturale innaturale soggiace nella nostra arbitrarietà. Giuseppe Galeota Al Rami

...e' il tempo che mi manca e non solo...sono profondamente limitata nei calcoli. Io ed i numeri non siamo mai andati d'accordo. Ho studiato ed imparato ben quattro lingue ma non so fare neanche un'equazione!Credo che le macchine in questo senso siano la piu' bella invenzione degli ultimi secoli. Ho letto molto: dal Trattato Pratico di Astrologia di Andre' Barbault a molti dei tuoi libri, tutti o quasi pubblicati da Armenia, piu' i testi di Lisa Morpurgo...Natura dei Pianeti, dei Transiti e delle Case...non ho naturalmente tralasciato di studiare a fondo ogni singolo pianeta...alcuni testi, sempre di Armenia, sono fuori stampa gia' da un bel pezzo!
Sono un'autodidatta D.O.C e non ho mai avuto nessuno che potesse evidenziare i miei errori e che potesse aiutarmi ad individuarli ed a correggerli...le tue Pillole mi hanno dato un ottimo sostegno e credo che solamente qualcuno che ama molto questa materia possa trasmettere la propria conoscenza ed esperienza agli altri su di un Blog, gratuitamente come hai fatto tu...grazie infinite quindi per la tua grande voglia di condivisione e per questi " regali" che ci fai ogni volta che ne pubblichi una nuova...Quelle sulla Zona Goquelin sono state l'ennesimo graditissimo regalo...


Cara Laly,

per fortuna non esistono solo gli allievi ingrati... Un caro saluto.

Grazie Niko ma quel marte vicino alla quinta casa dici che non è pericoloso? Ho dimenticato di dire che ho un figlio e, se può servire, che lavoro in banca.

Ti sono grata,

Buona Giornata a Tutti.
Ciro Discepolo
