Horary astrology is an ancient form of astrology that is based on the current time at which the question is heard and understood. Instead of looking at a natal chart, the astrologer casts a chart based on the “burning question of the hour” that the querent wants answered. It is extremely complicated, but the basics are noted below.
- As a general rule, you are not allowed to ask about the past.
- If you already know the answer about a certain situation, you cannot ask about it
- You cannot start a question with “should.” You must always phrase the question with the word “will,” for example, “Will I…”, “Will they….”
- You should not ask about death or life after death.
- Do not ask questions that can only be answered with a yes or no answer. Horary charts require interpretation (more on that below).
- Do not ask about a third party. This is about you, not about others.
- You must ask a question that you’re seeking information about that is occurring from the time you ask the question to three months in the future. Horary charts last for up to three months. This means that you can only use one chart per question. Think of the “burning question” within, and when it pops into your head, write it down and record the time. Use that time and location as the time when casting the chart.
- Do not ask the same question more than once in three months. You could get false answers. Stick to the first chart.
