The Hamburg School is known for its accurate prognoses. The Hamburg School’s continuing emphasis on various techniques can probably be traced back to the fact that Witte himself was a technical surveyor. However, its approach also shows a deep spiritual connection. The horoscope is considered to be creative plan for each individual life which is understood as being one in a long cycle of incarnations. The Hamburg School’s view is that astrology is a ‘welcome orientation guide’ on the way to perfection because it helps us get to know what our inner potential is.

Certain factors and stories (themes and/or archetypes) emerge as events—or in our consciousness—at specific times in our lives. In any given moment there are several themes and processes unfolding simultaneously. Sometimes themes overlap and combine to create a wildly potent and creative (sometimes recurring) motif. At other times a moment acts as a trigger for the literal or symbolic (exterior or interior) manifestation of an important issue, event, feeling, transition, or time in your life. Through examining midpoints, planetary pictures, antiscia, and a myriad of timing techniques that accompany these methods, we can get a good idea of what is up for you—and how to work with it.

Midpoints conduct energy. They are focal or funnel points for planetary significations. There are direct and indirect midpoints, the latter slightly less intense. Antiscia falls under this designation as antiscions are simply midpoints around the four cardinal points (Equinoxes and Solstices). The cardinal points are sometimes simply called the Aries Point (and they are literally the sun's nodes). Actually, to be more precise, zero Aries is the ascending node of the sun while zero Libra marks the descending node, which puts the Solstice points at 'the bendings' (or square to) the sun's nodes. [This is something that deserves deeper examination later.]

Planetary pictures vary. Completed planetary pictures are like closed circuits; they speak to major themes in a person's life. And these are periodically triggered, usually in significant and highly dramatic ways. There are also incomplete pictures (a.k.a. Lots) which seek a transit or other direction (or another person's planetary energy) to set off their significations. When this happens (and we can time these things) we have a say in how we respond, i.e., how we channel the energy. While transits and directions are fated (timing is predetermined), how and with whom we relate—and how we react—is within our control and can be altered through intention, practice, mindfulness, distance and space, and through other forms of remediation. 

This system also sometimes utilizes TNPs (transNeptunian planets) for nuanced delineation. 
See how Alfred Witte, the creator of the system, discovered them in this article

Planetary Pictures or 'Lots' always create an isosceles trapezoid shape in the chart

The midpoint at the center is a significant axis

 
 


Those signs reflecting each other across the Solstices (Antiscia) and equinoxes (Contra-antiscia)

these create midpoints focused on the cardinal axis

I’ve made this new offering /focus for chart work available for $108 (one hour consultation). Its aim is to discern the primary themes in your life, and examine which factors and motifs are emerging now through midpoints, planetary pictures, antiscia, and several key timing techniques.

Antisica in action:

On the day I gave the talk (my first public lecture on antiscia) the transiting Sun and transiting Mercury were actually in precise antiscion to both my natal Sun and Mercury! -- and so pulled my Sun Mercury into the cardinal axis. As I didn't schedule the time, it was a surprise to learn. 

In the talk I outline what antiscia is - as well as why and how to use it. I offer a historical context, and give directions for calculating antiscia, in addition to applying it to many modern musicians, comics, and politician charts. Example charts begin at the 41 minute mark.
