Uranian Astrology [Astro*Index]

The system of astrology founded by Alfred Witte, a German Army Officer in WW-I, in association with Friedrich Sieggruen. He began by trying to correlate battlefield events to planetary motion. The system makes use of midpoints and a set of 8 hypothetical planets, known as Uranian planets. It uses a 90° wheel, which makes oppositions, squares, semi-squares, and other "hard" aspects easily visible. It also makes use of planetary pictures, and five unusual house systems. Cosmobiology, developed by Ebertin, is an offshoot of Witte's work.

Uranian Astrology [Prima]

Also called the Hamburg School of Astrology. The chief differences between Uranian and standard astrology lie in some of the techniques developed and used by the former:

  1. The use of dials (360°, 90°, and others).
  2. The use of Planetary Pictures consisting of three or more planets, symmetrically arranged around a common midpoint axis.
  3. The use of the equation a+b=c+d (or a+b-c=d) in the calculation of Planetary Pictures.
  4. The use of the eight TransNeptunian or hypothetical (postulated but unverified) planets. These planets were postulated by Alfred Witte, main founder of this school of astrology, and his colleague Friedrich Sieggrun.
  5. The use of a special house system (meridian) and the cardinal points (or Aries point).
  6. The use of subsidiary charts:
    Earth Chart
    Meridian Chart
    Moon Chart
    Ascendant Chart
    Moon's Node Chart
    Sun Chart

The methods used by the Hamburg School are considered complementary with, and in fact are an extension of, classical astrology. They allow for great precision, which is useful for rectification and predictive work.

Uranian Astrology [DeVore]

A system based upon the teachings of Alfred Witte of the Hamburg (Ger.) Astrology School. Its chief differences from the orthodox school consist in the use of Planetary Patterns (q.v.) based upon Midpoints, the cardinal points, Antiscia, and certain hypothetical planets; also the exclusion of all but the "hard" angles: conjunction, semi-square, quadrate, sesquiquadrate and opposition-which are termed effective connections. The personal points are 0° of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, the Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun and Moon.

Uranian Planets [Astro*Index]

One of the eight planets "discovered " by Witte, a German Astrologer of the WW-I period, in conjunction with Friedrich Sieggruen. To date, there has been no physical confirmation of their existence. Some astrologers regard them as "psychic planets" (bodies existing at a level more subtle than the physical). They are named, from Pluto outward: Cupido, Hades, Zeus, Kronos, Apollon, Admetos, Vulcanus, and Poseidon. Ephemerides exist for them, and they are described as to quality and type of influence in Uranian textbooks.
