    The introduction of planetary pictures into astrology made it possible to examine horoscope charts in a scientific way. This new approach was an eye opener for many astrologers, and the planetary pictures have since then been confirmed in every definition over the years and have withstood the test of time. The expanded rulebook which is in use today, still contains interpretations from this earlier time. This confirms the theory of planetary pictures as a permanent application, based on the research work over several decades. It validates the value of the extensive research work contributed by the followers of the Hamburg School.

    When examining horoscopes, there are two approaches that can be taken. Either the horoscope is examined on easily detectable structures within the chart, or the horoscope is specifically evaluated for a certain question. When using the first approach, the rulebook provides the preferred support for the astrologer, whereas when using the second approach, the lexicon is the preferred solution. In short, the rulebook is an inspiration to find possible wording of a discovered planetary picture, whereas the lexicon is a support for tracking down the unknown position of a planetary picture, that reveals information about a certain question.

    Starting with the second edition of the German rulebook (1932), a word index was added to the rulebook, which referred the user to the pages where the words appeared in the rulebook. One had to find the entry in the index list and then move to the correct page to search the entry again. At the start of second period (1946), this index was discarded for the fourth edition, because entries had doubled in size due to five additional factors. The previous index had become ineffective for these larger text entries. In 1957, Ludwig Rudolph published the first lexicon by Ilse Schnitzler, which was a solution to this problem. The new lexicon presented here was compiled according to this model.

    In preparation for this compilation, almost 20,000 individual entries of the rulebook were identified and analyzed. In the next step, nearly 50,000 specific entries were assigned to 3,200 individual index words to complete the work.
