The research suggests that the Earth's inner core rotates "faster than the rest of the planet" - it "turns about one degree farther than the planet as a whole each year". This means that the physical agency that forms Earth's magnetic field progresses in diurnal motion (relative to us) at the same rate that astrologers progress the horoscope. Note the relativity. I have to keep stressing this because I'm aware that unless I do people will not notice it even when I do include reference to it. Everyone is indoctrinated with the belief that relativity doesn't affect them, and that is what I must fight. I was with everyone else on this issue myself until recent years! [..]"

Relatively speaking, the Earth's crust *lags* by one degree per year...:) But I was thinking that the progressed chart derived its reported significance from persons who verify their astrology by noting the timing of *predictable events*--a proposition for which I personally have no reason to argue. It would seem very likely that a critical shortage of accurate and dependable astronomical data might logically lead astrologers of antiquity to invent and rely upon a system like the progressed natal chart if only to enable their *predictions*, which they must make to fulfill the expectations of their clientele. In general I tend to depend on certain constants of human nature when the detailed facts of a case are not in my possession: I've often noted in myself that the feeling that I need to "fight" usually implies that silently perceive myself to have a weak argument....:)
