Terms of the planets

 The planetary Terms are a system of subrulerships of sections of a Sign by various planets, in which the nature of a planet placed in a Sign is changed to that of the planet in whose term it is placed. These subdivisions, which are exclusively pertinent to the interpretation of a Horary Figure, are usually ignored by moderns, who believe they were invented by the Egyptians to account for phenomena now attributed to the influences of previously undiscovered planets. Others who claim to utilize them in Horary Astrology claim that they produce outstanding results.
