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.

Question Will Horary be able to answer deep and profound questions on spirituality etc?

I know very very little about Horary Astrology but am intrigued by the apparent accuracy of the practice. My question is does horary answer philsophical questions ?The question is addressed to members of this forum and is not posted as an actual Horary question (According to the rules here one has to make an attempt to cast and answer ones questions,this I am unable to attempt as I have only basic astrological knowledge,)
I would really appreciate any comments on this.
many thanks,
Ckr1

Re: Will Horary be able to answer deep and profound questions on spirituality etc?

Hi Ckr.

The thing about philosophical questions, is that there is never really an answer for sure. The aim of horary is to do the precise opposite, to eliminate confusion and speculation, and to try and determine the facts. With sufficient interest, aptitude, ethusiasm and a willingness to learn, it can be shown how horary can indeed work, and work very well. Those who believe that astrology has no valid basis will have a hard time with this.

My personal view, is that if we have no opportunity of verifying whether our horary interpretation was right or wrong, then why bother? If I correctly determine where the missing cat was, then I have learned something from this and it becomes part of my experience and might help me to judge in the future. If I do not find where the missing cat was, then when I do find out, I'll revisit the horary and find out where I went wrong, which will give me something to bear in mind the next time. Astrology can help us to try and determine facts where they need to be known, so that we can adapt our life path accordingly, and so that we can have the art revealed to us. There is no point in utilising astrology to assist our speculations upon whether there is a monster under the bed or if I was abducted by aliens. Of course, it is always fascinating to ask such questions, but as there is no verification possible as to the answers we have deduced, then we have learned nothing, and each horary should reveal some new lesson to you, even if, eventually, it's to make you realise why philosophical questions are not valid. This is something I'm slowly coming to realise now. I'm realising that if I am not learning something from each chart I look at and writing it down, then I'm just idly entertaining myself and I'll never be a real astrologer. In the earliest stages of learning horary, of course it is entirely natural to be casting dozens of charts a day upon the most trivial and flippant of issues, and this is fine because you can't expect much else from an enthusiastic beginner, and you need to do this to get used to what you're doing with horary. However, once you get to know what you're doing with horary technique, and you just need the practice and experience (which I've neglected terribly due to a new-found interest in nativities), then you ought to know better. Not that I have no sense of fun, you will find articles on this site where Radu has interpreted some philosophical questions of my own with horary, and of course this is fascinating speculation, but I will never find out if the answer is true or not for sure, so what have I learned? I have too many reason for no longer asking or answering such questions.

The purpose of horary is to find something out when the information is needed, then the time is right to ask a question, questions asked out of anything other than a real, genuine need for information when no other sources of insight are available, can lead to some very scatty charts, and often inspire more questions than answers.

Philosophical ponderings are for the contemplation of the human mind. Horary can only give us the facts, philosophy by it's very nature does not deal with facts, it's about attempting to answer the unanswerable, horary is the precise opposite, it concerns determining the facts where an answer can be found, which is why it cannot answer philisophical questions.

Hi Draco,
Many thanks for your intelligent and thought out reply.
I understand completely everything you say and it makes sense.
I started this thread whilst in a very distressed state of mind and I was desperately looking for some answers.
I had just watched an incrediblely well produced video called "Earthlings" and needed to understand what it was all for...Don't we all! (Google "Earthlings" Though Warning! It is truly life changing.It is probabaly the most horrific catalogue of animal abuse mankind has ever bestowed upon sentinent creatures) I was looking for the reasons "Why"
I suppose if the answer was that easy to find then maybe something could be done to address these crimes and it would eventually be nothing but a dark memory of Mankinds history.
Anyway I digress,If I was to ask Horary a question such as "Is all the cruelty for a reason" would it point me in the general direction i.e. Yes or No?
Without giving reasons or facts?

I like the analogy you used,

"There is no point in utilising astrology to assist our speculations upon whether there is a monster under the bed or if I was abducted by aliens,"

See one of my previous posts!
