What a wonderful example. THANKYOU so much.
I have experienced so many times astrologers who do a horary chart & mess about looking for all sorts of things using their own pre-conceptions. I have done this myself. After nearly 30 years of doing astrology and studying & giving talks & lectures I can still struggle with horary.
I have now come to the conclusion that alot of the time you can get the answer within the first few seconds of looking at the chart by sticking to the main & first strictures that should be looked at i.e void of course moon, asc too soon or too late, combust significators & the placement of Saturn etc etc.
Too many times we probe too deeply into a horary chart & don't listen to the first impression we get. With age & hindsight I have come to the conclussion that if the chart doesn't "Talk to me" then it's not meant for me to read & know the answer.
Still doesn't stop me from trying though !! Ha ha
