Classical

ClassicalSolar Writer Classical is written in true classical style. This unique report packs a punch. It's not for the faint-hearted! This is a specialist report and cannot be edited.

This report writer is an ideal introduction to the concepts of Classical Astrology or for research on the application of Classical techniques in a birth chart. The report is recommended for professional astrologers rather than for client work.

World-renowned author J Lee Lehman has created something unique based on her wealth of experience in both modern and classical astrology techniques.

Classical Astrology is forthright and explicit; some may say blunt. The method of analysis may be shocking or even disturbing to the Modern Astrologer, who is used to toning down any negative tendency encountered in a chart. Therefore, the purpose of this report is to provoke a reexamination by the Astrological Consultant of just how the life will function if the Native does not take conscious control of the energies presented by the chart. This report writer is a teaching report, both to demonstrate classical technique, as well as to remind the Modern Astrologer of what the raw thrust of the chart actually shows.

The comprehensive reports are ideal for:

  • Dignities and Debilities.
  • The Affairs of the House.
  • Planets in Signs.
  • Sign of the Ascendant Ruler.
  • Ascendant's Almuten or Ruler.
  • Ruler of the Geniture.
  • Health—6th House.
  • Length of Life—Alcocoden.
  • Aspects, Faces and more.

Each report includes optional general explanations of techniques used and glossary of terms.

Solar Writer Classical also features a unique report introducing the Humours with your own complexion scores, ruler of the geniture as well as a general introduction.

Medicus

MedicusSolar Writer Medicus is a fresh and original report on classical medical astrology.

This is a specialist report and cannot be edited.

Never seen before, this creative report writer program works exclusively from an event chart enabling an astrologer to ask a horary question or erect a chart for the onset of an illness and then print an interpretations report.

Solar Medicus is designed to give the modern astrologer the ancient medical teachings with minimal embellishment. This unique tool provides the astrologer with the teachings of multiple medical astrologers, including classical medical astrologers Nicholas Culpeper and Richard Saunders, in a fashion accessible to modern astrological technique. This distinctive report writer uses a database of over 1,400 statements and aphorisms (with citations) to extract those applicable to a single horary or event chart. The report generates works from the event or horary chart exclusively; it does not compare this chart to the nativity.

The citations are often exact quotations, but the compiler, Dr. J. Lee Lehman, has added commentary to explain archaic terminology and to update the anatomical references. The report is designed to provide the astrologer with the exact astrological indicators used, to facilitate further astrological study and delineation.

Dr Lehman says: "Traditional medical astrology has consisted of both a general theory, and a lot of specific case histories. Unfortunately, the general theory has seldom been enunciated as such, but rather, has been presented mostly piecemeal, with the reader left to draw out the theory behind the method from a staggering quantity of case studies and aphorisms. More than most forms of classical astrology, this material has been extremely difficult for the modern mind to grasp, because the presentation is so alien. Yet medical astrology is precisely the type of subject matter that the modern astrologer needs to be able to work effectively with clients throughout their various life crises."

This specialist report writer is an ideal introduction to the concepts of Classical Astrology or for research on the application of Classical techniques in a birth chart. The non-editable text is recommended for professional astrologers rather than for client work.
