Problem Solved

The image below shows part of a secondary progressed chart. This looks like a Mercury opposition to the 10th cusp but it’s not shown in the Aspect Table. Why?

This looks like a Mercury opp to the 10th cusp but it's not shown in the Aspect Table

This looks like a Mercury opp to the 10th cusp but it’s not shown in the Aspect Table

  1. Aspects to Cusps does not include aspect to the 4th or 10th cusps. They are handled in the normal way like other aspect calculations.
  2. The Cusp Aspect orb does not affect the normal operation of aspect calculation.
  3. The default aspect orb for a sec. prog. bi-wheel is one degree as in the example above.
Cusp Aspect Orbs

Cusp Aspect Orbs. Note the small star is a developer indicator the the cusp table is loaded. It will probably be removed.

The solution is to increase the secondary progression orb to two degrees. The orb is shown top left. Now the aspect can be seen in the Aspect Table.

Increasing the sec prog orb now shows a Mercury opp MC

Increasing the sec prog orb now shows a Mercury opp MC

Tapping the Aspect Table icon brings-up the Aspect Table. This setting determines which aspects are initially shown.

Note that View #10 has its own settings.

Note that the Horary setting overrides the settings here. If the chart is a Horary chart.
