Via Combusta

The region from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio considered an ancient malefic tumultuous zone of the nature of Mars, Saturn, and now also Uranus. Used mostly in Horary astrology, the Moon here is a consideration before judgment and traditionally may render the chart not fit to judge. Marc Jones thought that the Moon here shows "an unsettled state of affairs that resists judgment and that involves a perverse self-satisfaction in the confusion." This is a controversial consideration before judgment and many astrologers ignore it. Jonathan Clark, however, has found that the Via Combust Moon often indicates the distress of the querent.
