something made me check my diary for 14-Nov-2003 and i found the above diagram. i have no idea why i made it — my notes mention the reguli schema, AGLA on the back of the Sigillum Dei Aemeth & that i was listening to "the triumphal march" from the Attack of the Clones soundtrack (lol). i've known about declination & antiscia for awhile, but i've never actually used either one extensively. Leigh Westin said without declination there are no seasons & the Declination Lady's football chart is the best way i've seen that visualizes the importance of the declination.

reading about declination & antiscia today it suddenly occurred to me that the analemma describes both declination & antiscia (and syzygies too?) & also describes my astrological intention: to see infinity in a moment. on this astronomy photo of the day by Vasilij Rumyantsev declination is the vertical height of the sun & the "sun pairs" represent the antiscia.
