View Full Version : Outer planets not used?
I would like to ask: why are the outer planets not used in horary astrology? Obviously, they weren't used originally because they had not been discovered.
However, don't you think Lilly etc would have used them if he/they had known about them?
It doesn't make sense to me that they can just be ignored - though I'm no expert by any means. Could someone explain why they are not used/

You seem to already know the answer. Lilly didn't or the others back at that time because they had yet to be discovered. Anthony Louis also says that he doesn't use them when you read his book "Horary Astrology Plain and Sumple." I don't use them when I do sports predictions. The only time that I see that they might be of use is if you want to go further into the matter of the question. V/r LionKing

Look at some of the people who read horary here. They don't need the outers yet they accurately glean volumes of information from the chart, including underlying themes, concerns, fears and issues not even related to the original question. Sometimes it's frightening what can be seen.
The real problem with the outers is that they move so slowly. Pluto only moves 1' to 2' per day and even slower than that if it's getting ready to change station.
Because they move so slowly, they function more like fixed stars and aren't really necessary to get an accurate reading from an horary chart.
