At the advent of horoscopic astrology, hellenistic astrologers utilized the trigon lords as guardians of the four winds - planets of equal authority to sign rulers whose placement determined the eminence of an individual and the support that they would receive throughout their life. Over time, however, they were relegated to a subsidiary role and ultimately an afterthought, and the special techniques associated with them for interpretation and prediction disapeared. In this talk, Matthew attempts to restore their practical use from classical times. Using historical information, textual analysis, and concrete examples, Matthew will demonstrate the plethora of ways trigon lords can be used to read natal charts as well as their potential for real prediction
