Fundamentals of Horary Astrology A Horary Chart is a chart cast for the moment that a question is asked. It is calculated just like a Natal Chart but at the moment the specific question is asked and not at the time of birth. Horary is a predictive branch of astrology, meaning, it can make predictions with amazing accuracy. This highly specialized astrological application is very ancient. It deals with specific questions and replies with specific answers. The basis of the horary chart is the time your question is put to the astrologer, and from this a map of the sky is erected. Personal details, such as your date, place and time of birth, are not needed and so, for those who do not have this information, horary provides a method of dealing with problems with difficult situations. Horary astrology is different in another way. The chart that is calculated is for that question only and will show the background of the question (what led up to the question) what is going on at the present time and how the future could turn out if you let nature run it's course. The fascinating thing about horary is that we have a choice in the matter. If the chart shows that things are going to turn out well then we can leave them alone and relax. But if the chart shows potential problems we can choose not to continue or choose to do something in a different way which can give us a different outcome.

The principles behind the analyzing the horary chart is different in vedic astrology and in western astrology. This article is written to explain both the methods that is used. The results are amazingly accurate for both the methods.

In Vedic astrology - Horary Astrology is based on Hora or Hour. Its principles are similar to the principles of Natal Astrology. Horary Astrology or Prasna Shastra in Sanskrit (Sanskrit Prasna, question) has been practiced in India for centuries. It is a branch of Vedic astrology, which is still widely used across the Indian subcontinent. Horary Astrology is a unique way of providing astrological predictions on any subject from event horoscope. It is based on a chart that deals with specific questions. To answer the questions, this ancient astrology doesn't require details like date, place and time of birth, it as an alternative answers the queries based on the time they were placed to the astrologer. On the basis of the queries laid down, a chart is formed. This chart shows the details like - what is going on at present, how could the future be affected, etc. It, therefore, provides solutions for dealing with critical situations. This helps one decide whether to continue with a particular course of action or not. Horary Astrology helps one to predict the longevity, health, success, failure, love, time of marriage, divorce, result of examination, job, gain by lottery or stock market, success in litigation & legacy etc. This is perfect for person who may not have his time of birth.

IN KP astrology the Horary method uses 4 Basic Points - the Base Ascendant, the Rising Ascendent, Veedhi & Chatra. The zodiac is divided into segments based on the Rashi lord, Nakshatra lord and sub lord in this method of Astrology. So, there are 249 segments in the zodiac, and when a querent (the person who ask the question) comes with a question, they are asked pick a number between 1 and 249. This determines the ascendant and the planets are placed in the chart for the time of query (disregarding the actual ascendant for the moment). So when a querent gives a number between 1 and 249, he/she is actually identifying a particular Sub Division, which is later, used to draw a horoscope. In this method Time of Query and Place of Query is important.

In western astrology the horary method is now being re-discovered by modern astrologers, enriching and improving how astrology is being practiced today.

After the chart is calculated we must first examine it for judgment. The rules for prediction are as follows:

  1. If the degree of the rising sign is less than 3ø, then the querent does not have enough information.
  2. If the degree of the rising sign is more than 27ø, then the matter is out of the hands of the querent.
  3. If the Moon is =Void of Course‘, that is the Moon making no more aspects to any planets before it goes into a new sign, then the matter proceeds with great difficulty.
  4. If Saturn is in the first or the seventh house, the Querent does not fully understand the situation.
  5. If there are any eclipses in the chart (e.g. Sol conjunct Luna, et al), then the question needs to be revised.
  6. If Mercury is =Retrograde‘ (moving in reverse as it seems from our view due to being on the other side of the Sun) then the Querent will change his or her mind about the desired outcome as plans will come to nought.
  7. If there is a =Besiegement‘ (the Moon is between the two malefics; Mars and Saturn, by either a conjunction or a square) then the Querent is in a no win situation with trouble at every turn.

The rules for prediction is given below

1. Determine the principal Significators:
A. The Querent is represented by the planet ruling the ASC.
B. The Moon co-rules the Querent
C. The Question is represented by the planet ruling the appropriate house.
2. If one or both of the co-rulers apply in benefic aspect (Conjunction, Trine and Sextile) to the planet ruling the appropriate house for the question, then there is a positive outcome to the question.
A. Only faster moving planets can apply in aspect.
i. The order of moving planets from fastest to slowest is:
Luna, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Sol, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto
B. Planets Applying in a Square indicate that the question is more trouble than it is worth.
C. Planets applying in Opposition indicate that there will be much negotiating or arguing before a positive outcome will be established.
i. An Opposition in Mutual Reception is an exception to this as it gives a positive answer based on compromise.
3. If the planet ruling the house of the question is in the first house (representing the querent), then there is a positive answer.
4. If the planet ruling the ASC is in the house of the question, then there is a positive answer.
