The Planetary Years.


DiNorah Kitchener, Canada.

In Western Classic Astrology: The cycle of 120 years. The 119 conjunctions

We know about the ruler of the day, Sun for Sunday, etc, we know about the ruler of the Hours (Planetary hours) the first hour for Monday the Moon, Tues day Mars, etc, but we don’t know too much about the Planetary Years.

These Planetary years are not just important in Indian Astrology via Vimshottari Dasha of 120 years but such systems have existed in Western Traditional European Astrology also.

When the medieval astrologers were talking about the ruler of the year, they were talking about these conjunctions in relation with this table.

For people the critical years are: 21, 45, 70, 94 and 119 because are years of SA and MA. Please see the copy of the table here. In Latin language the meaning of the word climatericus is critic, danger, those are the years of the conjunctions of Saturn and Mars. Those are the Climatericus years authors in Medieval Astrology talk about

chart 130

This table was used by Junctin de Florence, Doctor in Theology working for François de Valois, the brother of King Henri II. Junctin de Florence was very well-known astrologer working with the important people of his time as Cardenals, Popes, Princes, Kings.

When Junctin de Florence in “Commentaires” talks about the lord of the year, he is talking about this table as the same was being used by the Arab astrologers, 500 years before him.

The Bible says:

The man is only flesh, and his days will be in the future only 120 years – Genesis: VI.3

……. Moses died at the age of 120 years – Deuteronomy XXI.7

Ptolomeo in says: there are 119 conjunctions and is there the knowledge of everything that in this world will be under the effect of the creation and the corruption, the life and death – Ptolomeo, Centiloc 50. He talks about this table in his book” Apotelesmatique” too.

“…. you will add 7 sabbatical years, 7 times 7 years and the year will be 49 – (Levitique XXI.8)

Cornelius Agrippa in “De Oculta Philosophia” – the years 7 is sacred, same as the 7th year that give the most important changes in the life of everyone. ( II chapter XII)
