Cycle of 36 Years

To me, it would be a great help if the parans could be listed for the planets and also the stars in clock time in the next version of Solar Fire.  It would be nice to include the zodiacal longitudefor the parans also.

Other things which I am hoping for are:
1) listing of declination in numerical order
2) an inclusion of the maps of eclipses before 1950 in Solar Maps
3) the 36 year cycles of planets

These 36 year cycles were very popular in the west until about fifty years ago.  David Anrias (supposedly under the inspiration of the masters) wrtoe about this in the popular astrological press and included it in his book, Through The Eyes Of The Masters (published by Samuel Weiser, New York, 1976–first published in 1932).  He cites the Mars cycle which ran from the Spring Equinox 1909 through the Spring Equinox 1925. The first and last year of each cycle are ruled by the planet ruling the 36 years cycle.  So Mars rules 1909 and 1922. The planetary order is the traditional Chaldean one of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon. 

So we have:
1909 Mars
1910 Sun
1911 Venus
1912 Mercury
1913 Moon
1912 Saturn
1915 Jupiter
1916 Mars
1917 Sun
etc.

The recent 36 year cycles are as follows:
Saturn (and Virgo) 1765- 1800
Venus (and Libra) 1801- 1836
Jupiter (and Scorpio) 1837- 1872
Mercury (and Sag) 1873- 1908
Mars (and Capricorn) 1909- 1922
Moon (and Aquarius) 1925- 1980
Sun (and Pisces) 1981- 2016
Saturn (and Aries) 2017- 2052
Venus (and Taurus) 2053- 2088
Jupiter (and Gemini) 2089- 2122
Mercury (and Cancer) 2125- 2160
(As you can observe, the order of these 36 years cycles is the weekdays in reverse order.)

1998 is part of the 36 year Sun cycle, a Moon year
1999 a Saturn year
2000 a Jupiter year
2001 a Mars year
2002 a Sun year
etc.

Again, the years begins of the Spring equinox and theplanetary day begins at dawn.

So today, Friday, October 16,1998 is
36 year Sun Cycle
Moon year
Venus day
Moon hour  (9:36amPDT Berkeley, CA)

It is a 36 year cycle.

From Graham Dawson:
There are apparent contradictions in the Anrias book. The contradictions are,
i) He implies that 1922 is the end of the Mars cycle (instead 1925)
ii) He calls it a 35 year cycle (instead of 36)

I think that the first contradiction can be explained away as he is probably referring to 1992 as being the final (full) year of the Mars cycle, rather than it actually ending in 1922. The Mars cycle starts in 1909 and the next cycle (the Moon) starts in 1925 (as stated on page 78 of the Anrias book).  Anrias also confirms 1922 as indeed being a Mars year in the tabulation on page 71. Thus 36 years elapse from the start of the Mars cycle to the start of the next (Moon) cycle.

The second contradiction is harder to explain away, but it is nevertheless very clear to me from the material given that the cycle has a duration of 36 calendar years – not 35.
