Hi! I’m Jeremy and a new member, but a couple of years ago I gave money into he Kickstarter campaign for building the app. Now I’ve finally signed up for a membership for a very specific purpose…
I’m an astrologer and will use a memory technique to memorize astrology charts. There are about 24 data points per chart that describe the Sign and degree position of the planets and the various points on the chart which maps the position of all the planets at the moment of someone’s birth. Without memory techniques it takes me about 1.5 to 2 hours to memorize a chart and I’ll forget it quickly if I don’t keep reviewing it. I’d like a faster way to memorize them.
I’ve attached a chart so you can see what I’m talking about.
I have to memorize a list of 24 items that look like this:
Moon 29 degrees 37 minutes Virgo
Sun 0 degrees 24 minutes Capricorn
Ascendant 7 degrees 14 minutes Aquarius
4rth House 28 degrees 6 minutes Taurus
I think you get the idea.
There are 30 degrees per sign, and each degree has 60 minutes inside it. Each sign has a symbol that represents it, like animals and other things. Each planet and house have a kind of image to them as well.
What I’m thinking is that the best way to handle this is to memorize peg words for 1 through 60 so I can memorize the degrees and minute. Then develop a mental image for each point. Using the peg words and the symbols the represent the planets signs and houses.
What do you guys think? Will it work? Any other ideas?
Thank you for your help!!
