View Full Version : Timing using angular, succedent and cadent houses

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to time events.

I found a table from somewhere I cannot remember that says:

Cardinal signs in: angular houses takes days
succedent takes weeks

Fixed signs in: angular takes months
succedent years

Mutable signs in: angular houses takes weeks
succedent houses months

For example:

If the major significator is in 6th house (cadent) in Gemini (Mutable), applying square to other planet in 2nd house (succedent) Pisces (mutable)...there is 1 degree until the square forms exact. Would this be 1 month or one year?

Which planet do you take the timing from?

Do you take the timing from the fastest moving planet (however many degrees it takes to make its aspect) and the house it is in?

And if the moon is making an aspect to a planet, do you take the timing from the moon and the house it is in, or from the planet it is aspecting?

Many thanks

Hi NR,

Here's a good article on timing:

It's not as straightforward as you might think! :p

Best,

Hey AG!

Many thanks, thats a great article. (haven't had 'time' ;) to read it all yet, but I'll dive in a bit later). I forget, time on earth is man made, hours, minutes and all the rest. I find life flows easiest and smoothest when time is forgotten and all clocks are left behind, especially on holidays! :D

"If the chart that shows two aspects indicating that the event will happen, these aspects will usually - as we might expect - show the same time. 'Close enough' is good enough. If one, for instance, shows 12 units and the other shows 3, a correlation of 12 weeks = 3 months is sufficiently close to add confidence to our prediction. We could, in principle, expect them to be exactly congruent; but such an expectation ignores our place in the cosmos"

I like this, remembering our place in the cosmos, its very grounding.

Mutable/succedent - medium time unit.

Fixed/Angular - longest time unit.

Depending on the question, use your reasoning and common sense to determine, according to the question, what kind of time frame is most likely in your long, medium, short judgement.

Usually you'd be dealing with:

Minutes/hours/days.

Hours/days/weeks.

Weeks/months/years.

More rarely, and more in relation to questions concerning the world at large, outside of the personal, perhaps even:
