On event charts
Nowadays astrologers should not overlook the extreme importance of event charts - so called event astrology. We are well focused on astrological birth charts, we study natal astrology and might get a very good psychological perspective on different shades of our soul, but we'll miss the real events of our life.
Do you want to know where is your relationship going, or what will happen to you and your loved one in the future? Study the "first meeting chart"! That's when and where your relationship started, that's its real birth. Of course, there is plenty of information to get from synastry (chart to chart comparision) or a Davison or composed chart, yet sometimes they fail to give the exact information you need. For instance, how could you tell where would two newly-weds spend their honeymoon? Take a peek at the astrocartography map of the first meeting chart and you might see the Venus line running through France, so you'll know the answer.
The same holds true in the case of anything else. Let's take a recent example: the moment when a contract (for buying a new car) was signed set the "birth" chart for that car's existence. After a while, the owner accidentally hits the car, which resulted in quite high costs. At that very moment, Mercury was transiting the 6th house cusp (accidents) and the Moon was transiting the 2nd house cusp (expenses). In the meantime, the owner's chart shows nothing. Why would that be? He wasn't injured and although a little pissed off, he got over it quite quickly.
The idea is to use the right chart for the right purpose. That is the most specific chart for each purpose. Such as the contract signing chart when buying anything (from cars to properties), the first meeting chart for relationships, the birth chart for a person's personality and destiny, the oath of office chart for a president's mandate and so on... you got the idea.
There're two main applications of the above observations. One is represented by the astrological prediction of real life events (or the possibility of avoiding the disturbing ones, if you check the chart previously to the event). The other one is the electional astrology - the election of auspicious moments for major life events.
That's what I like most: this possibility of tuning in with the most positive and harmonious forces of the Universe, just by doing what has to be done at the right time....
