FAQs about Horary and Electional Astrology

Q. Why haven't I ever heard of Horary or Electional astrology? And why doesn't my astrologer offer Horary and/or Electional astrology services?

A. Both Horary and Electional astrology are very specialized types of astrology which are very ancient in origin and practice. These methods later seemed to experience a revival of sorts sometime during the Western European Renaissance (around the same time as Tarot was being born). The most famous Horary practitioner of the later English Renaissance was the English astrologer, William Lilly.

Traditional Horary and Electional astrology both follow very specific, difficult to master rules. Most likely your astrologer simply hasn't learned how to interpret Horary or Electional charts or your astrologer has chosen not to practice them for some other reason. However, as time goes by, the good news for consumers is that there are more and more astrologers that have learned how to do Electional readings.

The specialization of practicing different types of astrology is no different than any professional field of endeavor and expertise. Nobody can learn it all. Take for example, the field of law. In larger cities there are general practice attorneys who do a little of everything, but there are also attorneys who tend to specialize in one certain area of law such as Real Property, Divorce, Bankruptcy, etc..

Q. What gives? Why doesn't Electional astrology require your knowing my birth data?

A. Electional astrology is a special type of divinatory, oracle astrology that is based on the quality of the moment at any given moment in time. It's believed by many that Electional astrology was originally developed especially for all those folks who didn't know their exact time of birth. So there are astrologers, such as myself, that using traditional methods do not look at and/or use the individual's birth chart.

In traditional Electional astrology (picking the best time to begin an endeavor) is based on the birth of an event. With Electional astrology, once the event occurs, you'll have an event birth chart that can be followed by watching transits and progressions, in almost the same way your birth chart can be followed by transits and progressions.

You'll discover that a fair amount of the astrologers who will pick the best time for you to begin something new (such as opening a business, getting married, signing a contract, etc.) are still basing their findings on comparing transits, progressions, solar arcs, lunar cycles, planetary cycles, etc. to your birth chart. They are not using the traditional art of Electional astrology.

At the same time, in fairness I will mention that there are more and more astrologers that are combining the traditional techniques of Electional astrology with the comparison of the birth chart to choose electional charts. However, I am not one of those astrologers.

Q. In Electional astrology, you're picking a time for an event to occur? So is picking this ideal time an absolute guarantee of great success regarding the event?

A. No. Get real. Nothing in life, when free will is involved, is an absolute guarantee. However, in Electional astrology, a chart is calculated to insure that all the planets are as close to perfect as possible for the starting of a new endeavor.

Electional astrology is a wee bit like having a copy of the schedule at a major metropolitan airport and knowing which airlines have the best reputation for getting to your destination on time, without losing your baggage. At any major metropolitan airport, there are planes constantly leaving from different gates, at different times, and for different destinations. Electional astrology tells you the best gates and the best times to leave from for reaching a certain destination. If you're going to Detroit, then you don't want to get on a plane scheduled to leave for Miami. If you're going to Detroit, then you'll need to know what time the plane takes off. If you have a business meeting, then you'll want to get there on time.

Here's a concrete example. Let's say you want to plan the best time to "start writing a book for purposes of making money" and you live in Nashville, TN. If you give me a one year window (starting from November 10, 1999), then the best time for anyone living in Nashville, TN to start writing a book for money is October 2, 2000 at 2:14am CDT. If you give me a two year window, then the best time for anyone living in Nashville, TN is January 13, 2001 at 9:33pm CST.

If five different people in Nashville start writing a book at one of the above mentioned times, some of those five people will be more financially successful than others. If you have absolutely no talent at writing, then success may mean your family members will enjoy reading the book and take you out to dinner to celebrate. If you are an incredibly skilled and talented writer, then the sky may be the limit (no pun intended) as to how much money you will make from the completed book.

Take note that the results in the above example will be different according to the exact purpose of writing the book. Are you writing the book for money? Are you writing the book for fame? Are you writing the book for a sense of self-fulfillment?
