Check this category based on a clinical diagnosis obtained from the DSM-IV, the official reference book that psychiatrists and psychologists use to diagnose psychological disorders.

  • First Public Stock Trade: Date of the first public offering. This is also listed among the Events since financial astrologers have not yet agreed upon whether the radix chart is the incorporation or first trade date. We are persuaded by the parallelism of a company's incorporation to the soul's taking on a body (corpus), but until more data has been analyzed we will maintain both the incorporation and First Public Stock Trade as "natal" radix charts for eventual event research.
