The marsian function ‘eE’ (existence of Existence)
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the issues of the planetary function. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the questions raised by a planetary function. There is no magic formula. Through using the R.E.T. and of the Theory of Ages and combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

Mars ‘eE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘e’ affective sensoriality Mars ‘eE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘e’ affective sensorialityGenerally: maintaining the duo-duel. Action for action, struggle for life. The mechanical sequence of events, the dynamics of movement. Concrete physics in its tangible and material manifestations. The facts as in themselves, absolute and indisputable. All situations of systematic duality, of permanent confrontation, of irreducible division: bipolarization, separation, struggles, confrontations and fights. The inevitable dialectic of existence. Sensitive and experimental reality, the practice of objects, the relief of things. The close-range experience, raw sensations, material reality.

Mars ‘eE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘e’ affective sensorialityPsychologically: Be frank, direct, cash, straightforward, immediate in its actions and reactions. Be active, enterprising, achiever, explore concrete reality. Exist stronger by intoxicating sensations. Meet face-to-face, confront each other, fight a duel or a duo. Live his actions as both a struggle and a sharing. Experiment with beings and things, give yourself the means to exist. Accept only raw facts and phenomena, and respond to them with appropriate actions. Intensely practice the realism of the immediate. Be hyper-present in everything we do. Know how to be aggressive and vigorous when necessary, never lose courage.


Positive formula: ‘eE’

The positive characteristics of the marsian function are the sense of the concrete (trio Extensive existence, which also includes Jupiter and Saturn), the affective sensoriality (trio intensive existence, with Venus and Neptune) as well as the Extensive power (associated with Sun and Pluto)

“Extensive Existence”: the sense of the concrete

Mars ‘eE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘e’ affective sensoriality ‘E’ family — Jupiter-Mars-Saturn: sense of concrete — extensive ExistenceThe Marsian is a realist. For him, nothing is true except what he himself has experienced, what he has directly measured himself against, what he has personally experienced. Practical, director, dynamic, impatient to act, it is essential for him to confront the harsh reality of the facts on which he wants to have concrete, rapid and effective action. Wrestler, hard-boiled, catchy, he learns on the job, trusting his flair for situations and his empiricism. Ardent, energetic, rough, difficulties and tangible obstacles, far from discouraging him, stimulate his combativeness and strengthen his resistance. Courageous, enthusiastic, full of bite, he is not afraid to openly oppose beings and things when he deems it necessary. Rough, stubborn, direct and tough, he takes life head-on and takes control of situations without saying words, dismissing all hesitation and all unnecessary questions. Voluntary, whole, winner, offensive, always on the move, he does not hesitate to take risks, daring initiatives.

“Intensive existence”: the affective sensoriality

‘e’ family — Venus-Mars-Neptune: affective sensoriality — intensive existenceThe Marsien is a sensitive who lives his relationship to the world through all the fibers of his body. He acts and reacts according to what he experiences, what he feels, the sensations that his direct contact with raw realities gives him. He thinks, lives, loves, acts with his guts, with good animal health which attaches capital, absolute importance to the testimony of his five senses. He likes powerful, strong, vigorous sensations and emotions. He behaves like a being of flesh among beings of flesh: alive, vibrant, quivering, lively, boiling, turbulent, earthy, incapable of dissimulation or cheating, he is always authentic in his moods and in his feeling of beings and things. He lives at close range, in direct contact with his most authentic natural impulses, with the moods that are quickly triggered in him by the situations he is confronted with. He exists here and now, in the urgent immediacy of the present, in complete freedom of movement, and enjoys mastering the muscles of his body.


Negative formula: “non-rR”, “non-tT”

“Extensive non-Representation”: lack of communicative sociability

In negative, riveted to what he does, relentless in his need to act, to confront the world and the beings who inhabit it, the Marsien is not very good at cultivating relaxed, friendly and relaxed human relationships and almost incapable of communicating outside of tough confrontational situations. Carried, irascible, he lives in a world without landmarks, without fantasy, without desires. He does not know how to make himself funny, attractive, interesting, seductive. Hostage to his limited realism, raw formwork, he understands nothing of his own expectations and those of others and seems unable to integrate the subtlety of the implicit codes and conventions that structure the social relationships between individuals.

In positive, people from Marseille experience human relationships that are certainly harsh, but also frank and true, stripped of all hypocritical politeness, of all false elegance, of all kindness on the outside. He does not seek to appear otherwise than he is, does not care to impress the gallery, to show off, to entice, to draw attention to himself.

“Extensive non-Transcendence”: lack of prospective imagination

In negative, too focused on what he lives, feels and has to do in the urgency of the moment, the Marsian is insensitive to the darkest and deepest areas of his being, to the spells of the imagination, to the murmurs of the unconscious, to the subtle and deep aspirations which can manifest themselves in him. His ground-level realism and frenzied activism are blind to the mysterious dimension of things, to the subterranean motivations of beings, to the invisible, underlying realities that only intuition can approach. His impulsiveness and his taste for frontal shocks prevent him from acting on situations in a deep, insidious, roundabout way.

In positive, the Marsian opposes a solid realism and a robust common sense to all the emotional or interpretative deliriums, to all the plans on the comet that the too imaginative souls can draw. No state of mind, no requirement foreign to the possibilities that the circumstances conceal could divert him from his vocation as a brave little soldier.

“Intensive non-representation”: lack of decisive willpower

In negative, the Marsien decides piecemeal, in the fire and the urgency of the action, to acknowledge the blow, without having any real well-defined guideline, any other project than that of not letting it go. To preserve his bulimia for direct action, he rejects any social constraint, any binding norm, any collective discipline. It is thus the play of his impulses, of his thoughtless outbursts, of his frenetic short-sighted activism. Attracted by the smell of gunpowder, he opposes all authority head-on, exhausts himself in aimless fights, throws himself into melee and conflicts without having a battle plan, clear orientation, displayed ambition.

In positive, the Marsien, as an experimenter always on the ground, is wary of the great theories which claim to explain everything, of the great principles that are inapplicable in lived reality. He stubbornly resists the rules of the social game which claim to confine his freedom to exist as he sees fit and as he feels it within rigid frameworks.

Mars ‘eE’: ‘E’ sense of concrete ► ‘e’ affective sensoriality

“Intensive non-transcendence”: lack of critical thinking

In negative, carried away by the bubbling of the present moment and the fiery reactions it provokes in him, the Marsien manages to see no further than the end of his nose. He is too entangled in the materiality of his lived situation to be able to step back, even to question the long-term consequences of his thoughtless activism. His coarse realism lacks finesse, subtlety, nuances. Questioning the deep meaning of things is a waste of time for him: he has so many things to do! He does not know how to cultivate the indifference, the detachment, the coldness which allow him to abstract himself from the immediate to consider other possibilities.

In positive, the Marsien does not allow his power of work and action to be paralyzed by doubt, worry, skepticism, endless procrastination. He opposes the healthy bubbling of his life to disembodied abstractions. Absolutely frank, he is incapable of devious tricks, underhanded shenanigans, base manoeuvres.

Les significations planétaires

par Richard Pellard

620 pages. Illustrations en couleur.

La décision de ne traiter dans ce livre que des significations planétaires ne repose pas sur une sous-estimation du rôle des Signes du zodiaque et des Maisons. Le traditionnel trio Planètes-Zodiaque-Maisons est en effet l’expression d’une structure qui classe ces trois plans selon leur ordre de préséance et dans ce triptyque hiérarchisé, les Planètes occupent le premier rang.

La première partie de ce livre rassemble donc, sous une forme abondamment illustrée de schémas pédagogiques et tableaux explicatifs, une édition originale revue, augmentée et actualisée des textes consacrés aux significations planétaires telles qu’elles ont été définies par l’astrologie conditionaliste et une présentation détaillée des méthodes de hiérarchisation planétaire et d’interprétation accompagnées de nombreux exemples concrets illustrés par des Thèmes de célébrités.

La deuxième partie est consacrée, d’une part à une présentation critique des fondements traditionnels des significations planétaires, d’autre part à une présentation des rapports entre signaux et symboles, astrologie et psychologie. Enfin, la troisième partie présente brièvement les racines astrométriques des significations planétaires… et propose une voie de sortie de l’astrologie pour accéder à une plus vaste dimension noologique et spirituelle qui la prolonge et la contient.

Pluton planète naine : une erreur géante

par Richard Pellard

117 pages. Illustrations en couleur.

Pluton ne fait plus partie des planètes majeures de notre système solaire : telle est la décision prise par une infime minorité d’astronomes lors de l’Assemblée Générale de l’Union Astronomique Internationale qui s’est tenue à Prague en août 2006. Elle est reléguée au rang de “planète naine”, au même titre que les nombreux astres découverts au-delà de son orbite.

Ce livre récapitule et analyse en détail le pourquoi et le comment de cette incroyable et irrationnelle décision contestée par de très nombreux astronomes de premier plan. Quelles sont les effets de cette “nanification” de Pluton sur son statut astrologique ? Faut-il remettre en question son influence et ses significations astro-psychologiques qui semblaient avérées depuis sa découverte en 1930 ? Les “plutoniens” ont-ils cessé d’exister depuis cette décision charlatanesque ? Ce livre pose également le problème des astres transplutoniens nouvellement découverts. Quel statut astrologique et quelles influences et significations précises leur accorder ?

Enfin, cet ouvrage propose une vision unitaire du système solaire qui démontre, chiffes et arguments rationnels à l’appui, que Pluton en est toujours un élément essentiel, ce qui est loin d’être le cas pour les autres astres au-delà de son orbite. Après avoir lu ce livre, vous saurez quoi répondre à ceux qui pensent avoir trouvé, avec l’exclusion de Pluton du cortège planétaire traditionnel, un nouvel argument contre l’astrologie !
