1 article for "Aphorism"

Aphorism [DeVore]

A short, pithy statement of a truth, presumably based on experience; the dictum of a wise man. Applied in Astrology to considerations involved in the summing-up or synthesis of the various testimonies contained in the Figure. In interpreting a Figure, or chart, consider the Signs as static forces; the planets as driving forces. The planets in the Signs show inner capacities that make for character, but the aspects, like verbs, denote action. Neptune gives.the answer to "Who is he?"; Uranus to "Why is he and what is his purpose?," and the rest of the planets answer the question "How will he fare?"
