    Planetary Sect and Almutens, including house Almutens

    Planned for AC ver 3.xx. Started February 5th 2024, updated 9th Feb 2024. Expect this page to be updated frequently.

    EDD = Essential Dignities/Debilities

    MR = Mutual Reception

    AC Knowledge base: Dignities and Debilities

    Example of the Essential Dignities Table as shown in AC


    Essential dignites table

    Currently AC does not calculate Essential Dignities/Debilities or display them in the same way as SFG does. Nor does AC have a Planetary Sect module. AC’s EDD is not essentially different though. It’s just missing some features, such as mutual receptions.

    AC is preparing to rectify this. Planetary Sect, house Almutens and options to match Solar Fire Essential Dignities calculations and tables are planned. This is quite an extensive undertaking so it might take some weeks. In this post I’ll be chronicling the progress with screenshots and comparisons with SFG. Note that House Almutens requires Sect calculations .

    Hopefully The Almutin Figuris or Chart Ruler can be included.

    Solar Fire: Saturn and Mars have -5 added to their scores because they are peregrine – see editor screenshot below. Venus in Trip is not scored – out of sect.

    AC: If a planet has no essential dignities nor debilities it is marked as peregrine, with a “p” and given a score of -5. Venus trip is scored +3. Planetary Sect will be taken into account very soon.

    Venus in her triplicity (out of sect) would not be taken into account using the default SF EDD, if SF’s default settings were used. Similarly EDD with Dorotheus Trip would not score Venus in her trip, by default.

    Triplicity is strongly associated with sect.
