four angles (and their corresponding quadrants) are related to four
primary archetypal energies:
King - the Midheaven
(with affinities to the Sun and Jupiter)
Magician - the I.C.
(with affinities to Mercury, Saturn and
Lover - the Descendant
(with affinities to Venus and Neptune)
Warrior - the Ascendant
(with affinities to Mars and Uranus)
there's a fifth sort of "roving" archetypal energy. This energy is
called the "Wildman" and is associated with the energies of the Moon.
like much of what Dan has to say on the matter and even incorporate
it into my birth chart interpretations. Sure, there's a lot I can't
"buy." (I can't help being a traditional sort of guy.) Dan once upon
a time had his own web site, but it now appears to have gone the way
of the gooney bird (it's extinct).
for anyone interested, the name of his book is: The Wildman, The
Earth and the Stars -- An Astrology of Masculine Archetypes. Dan's
book appears to be currently out of print, but I still occasionally
see it hanging out on the shelves of major book stores.
you can tell (by the name of the book), his focus is on the Masculine
Psyche. However, applying his principles to the Feminine Psyche is
not a hard stretch. And please remember,
it is a wee bit unique and unconventional....
