Russian-French astrologer, scholar, historian and noted author, a leading figure in twentieth-century French astrology. A translator of ancient documents, he was the author of "Ruler of the Nativity," 1974 and "Arabic Parts." Volguine founded the "Cahiers Astrologiques,"1938, probably the best French astrology magazine that was published up to 1983.
He promoted the use of the Hindu navamsa (chart-view in the ninth harmonic), the theory of Arabic Parts and the interpretive subtleties available through the decanates of signs. In his book, "The Ruler Of The Nativity," he developed a complex method for determining the strongest (or ruling) planet(s) in a chart. His approach to the horoscope was holistic, as with his theory of encadrements or "planetary containment," wherein he placed special emphasis upon the sequence into which natal planets fall when proceeding through the zodiacal wheel in a horoscope. In this context, he placed extra emphasis on planets that appear on either side of certain significant points, such as the Sun, Moon, Midheaven, and Ascendant. Volguine is the author of "Lunar Astrology," "The Technique of Solar Returns," "The Ruler Of The Nativity" and "Astrological Interpretation of Dreams." Died on 6/23/1976, in Nice, France.
