Dr. Klughase, the great researcher visited me last Mercury Ingress. He brought his latest volume containing the charts of all the kings of Sumer from Nebunoddy to Nebunotaboutto. In his forceful manner he proclaimed that he now had conclusive evidence that the wholesome house system combined with the Alcohabitus system delivers the most accurate results to date. The controversy about reversing the formulae for the Lots, selecting the correct nodal pairs and using relocation for solar returns is now resolved once and for all.
My research has shown it to be so, let everyone else use what works for them. (Dr. Klughase)
The wholesome houses originated in Sumer, they can be seen in clay tablets discovered by Dr. von Schlitzohr in the 1830’s while digging there (see tab. XVI.789.ice). There are only two houses. Enkidu and Gilgam. Any planet below the horizon is in the Enkidu house. Any planet above the horizon is in the Gilgam house. Planets are either in sect or not. All planets in Enkidu are in the same house and are conjunct one another. They are in opposition to any planet in Gilgam. The same is true for planets in Gilgam, they are in conjunction and in opposition to planets in Enkidu. Diurnal planets in Enkidu are debilitated, just as nocturnal planets in Gilgam. Diurnal planets in Gilgam and nocturnal in Enkidu are in dignity.
All 360 charts of the royal line of Sumer shows how exact the system is. They all, without exception, show the royal configuration of Sun in Gilgam in opposition to the Moon in Enkidu. No other system shows this. Yes Placidus fans, prepare to convert to wholesome houses!
The Lot controversy is solved as the simple mathematics of the system for the first time become clear. All planets in Enkidu are ‘-‘, all planets in Gilgam are ‘+’. So the following combinations are possible:
- + and +
- + and –
- – and –
The first and last combination are + and so when added to the horizon, which always begins with 0 degrees of the Ascendant, are in Gilgam. Only the second combination which is a null, when added to the Ascendant, places the Lot in Enkidu.
The pristine character of solar returns now is revealed. Relocation is only allowed when the native moves from one hemisphere to the next. A simple rule whose overwhelming logic cannot be ignored.
As for which nodal pair to choose there is only one rule. The true-mean node is the best. Only when the pair falls exactly on the horizon must the mean-true node be chosen.
The addition of Alcohabitus houses is very potent, it adds a level of precision, to the millisecond when used in primary directions, that leaves the true researcher breathless. The Alcohabitus houses add the missing vertical axis – clever Arabian astrologers. The two sectional houses are known as al.mubbtouch (on the right) and al.hailitouch (on the left). So when a planet is Gilgam and al-mubbtouch, as in the chart of Nebbunoddy the XXiV, then the native is esteemed in the world, and if it is al.hailittouch and Enkidu, then his deeds will not be understood.
