The Base Frame


The Base Frame
The Chart Midpoint
The Victim


This is a very lengthy and detailed treatise. It is not likely there will be many who make a detailed study of it but it is here for those who will. Since it could be of interest to Astrologers only no effort was made to put it in lay terms.

The BASE FRAME is the term I have given to a group of 7 astrological points. I believe these points to be the basic framework on which the horoscope rests. These points are:

  1. Solar Eclipse (SE)
  2. Lunar Eclipse (LE)
  3. New Moon (NM)
  4. Full Moon (FM)
  5. Eclipse Midpoint (EMP)
  6. Lunation Midpoint (LMP)
  7. Final Midpoint (FMP)

The Information I've been able to gather tells me some astrologers, on some occasions, use the first 4 points, the eclipses and the new and full moons, in a loose way. Many others ignore them completely. I have never heard or read of anyone using, or even mentioning, the last 3, the midpoints.

It is my intention to show here they are all important points that should be referred to, and relied upon in the reading of any horoscope, and by so doing that reading will be enhanced.

The practicing astrologer, like all others who must earn their livelihood, is pressed for time. Many decisions are made every day about how we use our time, most of them instantly, without conscious thought. But it may be to your advantage to take time to go through the following charts and see for yourself how the points of the Base Frame relate to the horoscope. For the doubtful, (and the believers too), if you have any interest at all, I suggest you apply them to your own chart, and the charts of your clients, and form your own opinion.


To be Brief the initials only will be used.

To start, lets assume a point in time:

Dec. 4, 2000. 7:05 pm.

  1. Last S/E, 8 degrees, 12 minutes Leo. (July 30, 2000. 6:25 pm).
  2. Last L/E, 24 degrees, 19 minutes Capricorn (July 16, 2000. 5:55 am).
  3. Last N/M, 4 degrees, 0 minutes Sagittarius (Nov. 25 2000. 3:11 pm).
  4. Last F/M, 19 degrees, 47 minutes Taurus (Nov. 11, 2000. 1:15 pm).
  5. EMP, the half way, (midpoint) between the SE and LE = 1 degree, 16 minutes Scorpio.
  6. LMP, the half way (midpoint) between the NM and FM =26 degrees, 54 minutes Aquarius.
  7. FMP, the half way (midpoint) between the EMP and the LMP =29 degrees, 5 minutes Sagittarius.


Concisely listed:

SE 8 Leo 12

LE 24 Capricorn 19

NM 4 Sagittarius 00

FM 19 Taurus 47

EMP 1 Scorpio 16

LMP 26 Aquarius 54

FMP 29 Sagittarius 05


This Base Frame had its origin with the eclipses and their midpoint in July. These 3 points remain the same during the entire eclipse period, that is until the next eclipse occurs. As 3 of the other 4 points must change with each lunation, this gives us a new base frame roughly every 15 days. Since each NM and each FM lasts for roughly a month, each one of them will be a part of 2 consecutive base frames. The Taurus FM was a part of the previous one and the Sagittarian NM will be a part of the next.

The Base Frame above came into being Nov. 25, 2000 at 3:11 pm with the NM at 4 Sagittarius 00 and ended at the next FM Dec. 11, 2000 at 1:03 am. Any one in the world, or any thing, born between these 2 lunations would have the above as their prenatal base frame. To those born before, it is a transiting base frame.

Prenatal Base Frame referred to as PBF

Transit Base Frame referred to as TBF

For several years now I have added both to my horoscopes and have seen how they interact. It is my belief that the PBF, in conjunction with the natal chart, gives us the key to our lifetime challenges, and if these challenges are successfully met, possibly to our greatest accomplishments. Note that the PBF is established BEFORE the birth, in the case of the eclipses and their midpoint, sometimes months before. Then when the birth comes some points in the natal horoscope aspect, and interact with, some points in the PBF. This interaction continues throughout life with transits and progressions AND many times the TBF aspects the PBF.

In the case of the TBF, I believe it brings to the fore the things we will be most concerned with during that period. Where a problem is long lasting and persists through numerous TBFs, I think new aspects of the problem will arise as the TBF changes from one to another.

Two charts will be used to illustrate what has been said. The first is the generally accepted horoscope of Mohandas K. Gandhi (origin unknown). We will examine his PBF and the last TBF prior to his assassination in this order:

(1) Natal chart to PBF

(2) Transits at death to PBF

(3) Progressions at death to PBF

(4) TBF to PBF

(5) TBF to natal chart

(6) Transits at death to TBF

(7) Progressions at death to TBF

His Prenatal Base Frame (PBF):

SE 15 Leo 21

LE-- 0 Aquarius 40

NM 13 Virgo 39

FM 27 Pisces 53

EMP 8 Scorpio 00

LMP 20 Gemini 46

FMP 29 Leo 23


Last Transit Base Frame (TBF)

Since we are looking at Jan. 30, 1948, we must reach back to 1947 for the eclipses. There was only one LE, earlier that year, so the TBF active at our time had none. This also means that there was no EMP. So in this TBF we have only 5 points instead of 7. (There are times, just after the eclipses, when there are only 3 points, the 2 eclipses and their midpoint).

This 5 point TBF is what we will use in this study, but it poses this question: should we reach back to the previous LE and use it? (For the record only, that LE was at 12 Sagittarius 22, exactly conjunct his natal Saturn at 12 Sagittarius 23 in house 2).

Last TBF

SE 19 Scorpio 35

NM 20 Capricorn 00

FM 5 Leo 15

LMP 27 Libra 37

FMP 8 Scorpio 36

The figures to the right of the aspects are the degrees and minutes of orb from exact. Maximum orb is 5 degrees.

There was no intention to bring in house cusps, except the Ascendant and Midheaven, but one is so strong and precise, itís irresistible. That is the final midpoint in the TBF, at 8 Scorpio 36, square, to the minute, the cusps of Houses 2 and 8 in the progressed chart AND conjunct his PBF EMP AT 8 Scorpio 00.

Next we will examine the Gemini Ascendant horoscope of the United States in relation to the first national news broadcast of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The nearest I am able to place time for this broadcast, and the time we will use, is 2:22 PM, EST, Dec. 7, 1941, though the actual attack had been in progress for about an hour at that time.

Though there are other horoscopes for the U.S. the Gemini Ascendant chart seems the most popular and, right or wrong, the one I have always used.

The U.S. prenatal base frame (PBF)

  • SE 0 Pisces 34
  • LE 15 Leo 28
  • NM 25 Gemini 26
  • FM 10 Capricorn 13
  • EMP 23 Taurus 01
  • LMP 2 Aries 50
  • FMP 27 Aries 56

Last Transit Base Frame (TBF) (Prior to Broadcast)

  • SE 27 Virgo 49
  • LE 12 Pisces 44
  • NM 26 Scorpio 17
  • FM 11 Gemini 20
  • EMP 20 Sagittarius 16
  • LMP 3 Virgo 48
  • FMP 27 Libra 02

This is the point at which I stopped almost 3 years ago. I have had nagging thoughts about getting it done but could not come back to it. Now I do so without effort. We as humans think we run our lives but it is those planets moving through the sky that gives us the urge to act as we do, and they let us THINK its our decision. (Like the happy husband whose wife lets him think he's running the show.)

In the time since I started this I have discovered 4 other midpoints in the Base Frames, although I believe these to be of lesser importance. I will not confuse things here at this time by bringing those points in but maybe I will be able to introduce them at some later time.

The present transit base frame became effective Oct. 9, 2003 at 11:27 PM and I would like to show how it touches on my horoscope in relation to the work at hand. I will indicate in which house of my natal chart each point of the Base Frame would naturally be and the houses that the aspected points are in.

Earlier I mentioned the additional 4 points I had found in the Base Frame after this piece was begun. I will just mention here that all 4 of those points in the present base frame are in mutable signs and very closely aspect points in my charts.

I have laid it out in detail, probably a lot more than necessary, trying to show the importance of these seven points, which I call the Base Frame. There are no two astrologers who think alike and any point of thought can run the gamut from total acceptance to total rejection. I expect these things I have put forward to be no different.
