On ye eleventhe Daye of Christmas:
What is profection?
- In a decumbiture chart this shows that the crisis is over. When the Moon approaches the debilitated Significator of the patient it is ‘infection’ when it separates this is ‘profection’.
- This is a special confection that was made in Vienna for the Imperial Astrologer. It was presented to him yearly on the 4th of January. It is called ‘pro’ rather than ‘con’ because firstly it was non-fattening and secondly it showed the good will of the emperor. Since the decline of the empire the recipe has been lost.
- A method of symbolically progressing a chart. This can be by year, month or day.
- You mean, ‘protection’ this is when a Significator is guarded by a benefic. This is the opposite of besiegement.
