10. Symbols of the Father Complex
This is a very good essay who shows where to look if you want to find the parenting processes in a chart. First of all we don't have to look for a father but for fathering (who can be played by the father or not) who means social initiation, rules to be respected, challenges to pass, tests and is symbolized by Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and the tenth house. The second process, mothering, means nurturing, dependency and is symbolized by Moon, Venus and the fourth house.
Obviously, in some charts one of the two processes is emphasized and the author analyzes how people are acting in these situations.
This is a very good written essay and I believe marks some very important points to be taken in account. Personally I tested this and I saw, for example, that for me the fathering process is accomplished by my mother (symbolized very well by the tenth house) and the mothering process by my father (symbolized by the fourth house). So, I am really impressed by this article.

11. Dodekatemoria: An Ancient Technique Reexamined
There are three types of dodekatemoria. The third type is used by Hand and can be computed in this way (in the book you will find a more difficult method, I found this much simple way): add to the position of the planet a sum equal with 12x (degrees in sign for the planet).
For example, you have the Moon at 7 degrees in Sagittarius. Calculate:
7(degrees in sign)x12 =84 and add this value (84) to the initial position (7 in Sagittarius) and 247+84=331 = 1 degree in Pisces (this dodekatemoria for the Moon).
Attention! Convert all degrees and minutes to decimal degrees , for example, 7 degrees and 30 minutes will become 7,5.
I think this theory has some bases, I calculated for my chart and each planet dodekatemoria is in a point that I remarked for a long time to have special energies. This surprised me! It seems to work...
My evaluation: 9
In chapter 12 The Ascendant, Midheaven and Vertex in Extreme Latitudes we can see what problems appear when one computes a chart for polar or tropical areas.
My evaluation: 8
13. The Age and Constellations of Pisces
Do you know what morphomata is? Well, you will find that zodiac noeta is the constellations that we use and morphomata means the unequal constellations forming pictures of forms in the heaven (what we see on the sky). Then is analyzed the precession of the vernal point through the morphomaton of Pisces and the conjunctions with important fixed stars are assigned with historical events, giving an extraordinary result. It is a travel through history from the birth of Jesus to the church schism, French revolution, Marx or communism, all this events being marked by important astrological events (conjunctions of the vernal point with fixed stars). Very interesting article!
My evaluation: 9,5
FINAL EVALUATION: 8,72
Conclusion. A very good book, a lot of challenging hypotheses and brave ideas launched to be judged by the reader. Because, for this book, the reader has the final word. The final evaluation is the arithmetic mean of the essays. A well deserved 8,72!
