Confused about “victors,” “almutens,” “predominators,” “hylegs,” and other weird traditional terms? This workshop explains and explores the meaning and use of these “victors,” planets or places considered most powerful or authoritative for a certain topic. Victors are used in nativities, questions (horary), thought-interpretation, and other charts, and one of the more intriguing and unusual types is the victor over the nativity, which later authors associated with one’s personal Angel or daimon.
This workshop is suitable for beginners in traditional astrology, with plenty of explanations of dignities and sect. After going through numerous examples of victors “over” places and “among” places, Benjamin Dykes describes several methods for identifying, naming, and crafting a personal image of one’s Angel using techniques from the Middle Ages and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.
