Hyleg

A traditional term for a planet which is used to determine a person's life span. Also called the apheta or giver of life. Various complex rules were employed to determine which planet in a natal chart was the hyleg. Modern astrologers have questioned the ethics of attempting to predict the length of a person's life and the practice has been largely dropped.
