Horary astrology is a branch of astrology that focuses on answering specific questions or addressing immediate concerns by analyzing the positions of celestial bodies at the moment the question is asked. Instead of using birth charts or natal charts, as is common in traditional astrology, horary astrology relies on the casting of a chart for the exact moment when a question is posed to an astrologer.
Here’s how horary astrology typically works:
- The Querent (the person asking the question) formulates a clear and specific question, often with a yes-or-no answer in mind.
- The astrologer then erects a horary chart for the moment when the question is received or when the astrologer understands it. The positions of the planets, stars, and other celestial bodies at that precise moment are recorded.
- The astrologer interprets the horary chart to provide insights and answers to the question. This interpretation involves analyzing the positions of the planets, the houses they occupy, and aspects (angular relationships) between them.
- The astrologer provides guidance or predictions based on their analysis of the horary chart.
Horary astrology is considered a divinatory or predictive tool, and it is often used for questions related to everyday life, such as love, career, health, and more. The practice is guided by a set of traditional rules and principles that help astrologers make accurate interpretations. Some astrologers specialize in horary astrology and have extensive experience in this specific branch of astrology.
Keep in mind that the accuracy and reliability of horary astrology, like any form of divination, can vary depending on the skill and experience of the astrologer. It’s essential to consult with a qualified and reputable horary astrologer if you have questions or seek insights through this method.
