Horary Astrology Ask and answer any horary questions, and discuss theory and technique. Please post a chart of the time, date, and place you asked the question. Please do not ask the same question repeatedly, hoping for a different result: horary works best when you ask the question ONCE and then interpret the chart that results from when the question FIRST came into your mind. Horary forums are ONLY for discussion of horary charts and techniques.

As astrologers, have you ever selectively picked a time to cast a chart?

As so many astrologers here are so knowledgeable about transits and planetary aspects, I wonder if you've ever found yourself wanting to cast a horary about something but refraining because you know what the aspects will be at that moment in time, and will show an outcome that leads to a 'no'? Or alternatively, cherry picking a time to cast a chart that will show a 'yes'?

As a hypothetical example, if you know that Mercury/Jupiter will trine soon, have you ever found yourself casting a chart for when Virgo/Gemini/Pisces is rising, so that the horary will lead you to a 'yes' outcome?

I just personally find it interesting how knowledge of astro might alter our behaviour patterns. I'm not sure why, but it just reminds me of the battle between cosmic forces and letting the universe unfold things as they're meant to be vs. our own free will.

I trust in the cosmos to answer me when I ask. Fate is fate, you can't direct it.

No.

It would undermine the principles that allows horary astrology to work as it does.

If I had a big job interview or a court appearance I would probably cast a chart for that time, but events like that are so infrequent. My life is already predictable.

That is not the same as trying to ask a question by waiting, watching the planets, trying to get your desired results, in a horary question.

Selecting a date for a wedding, or operation, is a different thing.

Oh, you mean just using a chart to answer your own question?

Horary is a specific branch of astrology. Ask a question get an answer.

When I ask a question, I form in my mind a simple, to the point question.

I don't always ask right away. Sometimes I wait a month or two before I really feel like asking.

I don't consult an ephemeris to see when would be favourable. I trust in my instincts, and the cosmos, to urge me to ask when it is right.

As a hypothetical example,

if you know that Mercury/Jupiter will trine soon,

have you ever found yourself casting a chart

for when Virgo/Gemini/Pisces is rising,

so that the horary will lead you to a 'yes' outcome?
clearly

if Querent is already aware of a 'yes' outcome

then obviously
no question is being asked!

so it's NOT an HORARY chart

keep in mind that
a knowledge of the weather forecast
"alters behavior patterns"
by encouraging a timing of activities
for the appropriate weather conditions
and clearly
does not negate "letting the universe unfold things
as they're meant to be vs our own free will"
