On Trigons and Winds
© 2010, May 7 Curtis Manwaring
The directions of the winds / elements are tricky too for the reason that some are reported as seen from the heavens and others are reported as seen from the earth. Not sure if this affects the case in question.
There are winds from the planet's point of view (relative to exaltation degree at the level of the zodiac), relative to the ecliptic (sometimes planetary nodes) and at the lot level (terrestrial).
