Horary Revelation

17 09 2008

Are you seeing the forest or are you just seeing trees? Open your mind. This is a very very simple little observation, but something which I believe is true to the T.

When destiny is set, when something is bound to happen, when something is meant to be, you could do various charts and they would come up with the same answer over and over again.

Modern astrologers rely heavily on traditional texts but they are not necessary. Why don’t we use all the knowledge available to us?

I have noticed a pattern emerging. I ask a question several times, the same question. Each time there are different significators. But each time I find that the two significators which I am interested in are moving towards each other. In one case it is the rulers of the house cusps, through retrogradation, indicating a change of direction, but an eventual conjunction.

In another case there is translation of light between the signifiers by a third party.

In another chart, the signifiers are in an applying aspect with the orb at a very close precision 00 07′ minutes of the arc. The aspect was there, it was not a “traditional” aspect, a biquintile, but I think the fact that the orb was so close and applying has got to mean something. Modern astrology ackowledges quintiles as unbelievably creative and all about one key thing: TIMING, which not coincidentally is also what horary professed to be about.

WHY don’t astrologers use their new knowledge and apply it to the horary technique? The reason is that they are bogged down in what the “texts” say, and incabable of seeing a picture that presents itself under whichever conditions the sky is tempaorarily in.

WHY should a question be asked one day and the second day the same question gets a different answer? The cosmos is telling you something, always telling you something.

The simplest of reasonings: A relationship chart: The Astrologer should ask: Does the ascending degree an its ruler aspect the descending degree and its ruler? Factor in the fifth house and its ruler for romance, factor in the fourth house and its ruler for living together.

If the Ascendant ruler makes an applying square with a 1 degree orb to the descendant, and a bi-quintile applying with ’07 minutes of arc to the descendant ruler then this is a relationship of perfect timing, of creativity, just the same as a sextile aspect which is a creative aspect.

Is the 4th house ruler Venus placed in dignity on the IC square ASC and DC? It means that love is the basis of the relationship and that they ought to live together. The Moon also opposes that Venus with a close applying orb? It signifies that it will happen, especially since it is Angular.

ALL aspects count, modern ruleship may even count, if it is used for Natal and progressions it ought to be sophisticated enough to be used in Horary. Aspects to Angles count. Everything counts. Make the planets apply, make them see each other, and allow them to see each other through intermediaries, through translations and changes of direction.

You bring up very valid points in this blog. I think most of us Horaryist (sp) use traditional planets because they were the ones used when the rules of horary were discovered. And they worked then, they work now also. Naturally, as time has progressed and newer bodies discovered, they also should work in horary, it isn’t like they are just not there. That would make for an interesting study. To take Lilly’s example charts with the known outcome and re do them with modern planets and rulerships and see how they play out. Buddy, I do agree with you, we do need to break away from the biblical approach we take with the ancient texts if we are to grow.

I think using traditonal is a great basis. When you erect a horary chart you are looking for such specifics. It is so much easier just to look at the framework of the inner planets, the planets that Lilly would have used along with the aspects too.

What I propose here is that once the initial “basics” have been analysed, that there is still more information to be garnered. It’s the cherry on the cake.
