Last night at 20:26 I received the following horary question: “Will *** reply to my letter?”.
The querent is given by Mars, the quesited is signified by Venus, the letter by Saturn. Mercury, the natural significator of communication, will be examined as well.
The Ascendant is too late. This indicates that the matter is already been solved, so to speak. I looked at this chart yesterday and today too. I do not know why, but each time I look at it I think: the letter has been returned to her. I think it was a letter, not an e-mail. I know some background information, and Saturn as the ruler of a letter that is sent after such a long time seems to describe the situation very well. Saturn is conjunct Asellus Borealis: you contacted him because you feel you somehow have a share of responsibility in what has happened.
The following elements in the chart make me perplexed:
Saturn is exiting the eight house and entering the ninth, in detriment and in a dark degree. Mercury is still under the Sun beams, in the eighth and in a dark degree too. These debilities are accidental, and do not reduce the strength of the planet significantly, as Mercury is in its domicile. Anyhow, I think that the letter “cannot be seen” yet. But not for too long.
Could it be that the letter was sent to a different state (Saturn in the ninth)? As the planet is slow of course, perhaps there may have been some delays.
Now, when did you send this letter? The most recent aspect of the Moon was a trine to Uranus. Uranus is the modern ruler of the third, and the aspect is separing by 8 degrees. Did you sent it 8 days/units of time ago? If so, why do we get this late ascendant, like the answer to this question is already known?
Venus – which is very dignified - is separing a square from Mars, and applies a square to Saturn. Mars, your significator – applies a conjunction to Saturn. In five days (1 degree=1 day) the Moon will conjunct Mars. All the most important elements, you and the letter you wish to receive, are coming together. God willing I think you will receive a letter, but you may not be happy with it.
I am sorry,
