Converse Arc [Munkasey M.]

An arc measured in the direction of retrograde planetary motion.

Converse Directions [Astro*Index]

Directions computed according to a reverse rotation of the sky (west to east or against the order of the signs). Using a symbolic time ration, a time before an individual was born is equated with a specific time in the individual's life such as a degree of motion on the equator is equal to a year of life.

Converse Directions [DeVore]

Those computed opposite to the order of the Signs. Some authorities appear to question the validity of Converse Directions. It is true that in a birth Figure aspects are deemed to be formed only by a faster moving planet to a slower moving; but this does not apply to Directions in which the directed planet aspects all natal planets. If there is any validity in either Directions or Progressions the probability is that they are based upon a moving Ascendant which carries with it the entire Figure. In that event it would make no difference which one of two planets is directed to the other; for whether the one moves forward or the other moves backward, a contact between these two planets will result in either case, and which one is deemed to be the birth planet and which the directed planet is of relatively minor consequence. Since transits are the actual rather than theoretical or symbolic motions of the body of the planets in the order of the Signs, forming aspects to the birth places of planets — their own as well as those of other planets — there can be no such thing as Converse Transits.

Converse Return Chart [Astro*Index]

A chart cast for the return of a planet, usually the Sun, to the position it occupies in the natal chart for a number of years prior to a person's birth equal to a person's age.

See also: ♦ Return
Converse Transits [Astro*Index]

The motion of the planets prior to a person's birth compared to the birthchart. Converse retrograde motion is direct motion; all other motion is retrograde.
