In Honor of Dymock Brose, an Extraordinary Astrologer

Dymock Brose, a most generous-hearted Australian astrologer who spent decades teaching us all about harmonic charts, passed at the age of 95 on March 11, 2014. He is survived by his beautiful wife, Marguerite, who will continue his work. She said that he had lost his sight and hearing and passed gently and peacefully from heart failure. With her assistance, he presented lessons every single week for a dozen years of which I am aware, and I'm sure many more of which I'm not. A light has truly gone out in the world. The knowledge and expertise he took with him can never be replaced, but we are fortunate that Marguerite is willing to carry on with it.

Here is the age harmonic chart for his passing.
95. 5064873

He taught us to find the most important feature of the chart which is usually, but not always, the closest conjunction. In this case, the most important feature is the Saturn / Mars / Pluto conjunction in the 8th house of death, squaring Jupiter, ruler of the ascendant (he used the ancient rulers). Uranus, ruler of the 12th house of hospitals (and his natal 6th house of illness) conjuncts the 4th house of endings. Mercury (ruler of his natal sun and midheaven) quincunxes the moon's north node in Leo, sign of the heart, on the cusp of the 6th house of illness and sextiles the south node on the cusp of the 9th house of the longest journey of all. Venus, ruler of the 8th house of death trines Neptune, ruler of the ascendant, indicating a peaceful passing. He deserved no less.


  1. Dymock site is off air. Do you know if anybody recorded his articles and test charts? It seem a shame if it went all away.

    1. I know. I was so disturbed and disappointed to see it. What a terrible loss of knowledge and experience! Gone. Just gone. I wish Marguerite had continued with his work, or at least left it online for his students. I don't know why she made the decisions she did. I wish they had been different, but I can sort of understand. Most people really don't understand the amount of work it takes to do what they did (unpaid for YEARS), and frankly, a lot of the time it feels like a thankless task. That's one of the reasons this blog is closed. There is another astrologer who does a great job with harmonics, though she does it a slightly different way. She goes by two names and I can't recall at this second which she uses online. Try Alice McDermott.

      This is not directed at you personally, I hope you know that, but for all those people who learn from those who have given so freely and generously of their knowledge and experience, try saying thank you. I know of few other professions where the general public expects us to work free of charge. We, too, must pay our bills.

  2. I was going to say, "Use the Internet Wayback Machine" to view his site. I was also going to post a link to it, but I certainly don't want Lesia to "send me a Trojan". So, you'll have to figure out how to do that yourself. :)

  3. Someone with reading comprehension! Yay for you, Todd! I appreciate the lack of links. You're right about the Wayback Machine. I also found it that way.
