Horary is the branch of astrology which deals with answering questions.

The astrologer can make predictions from these questions by judging a horoscope for the moment the question is asked. The horoscope is set up in exactly the same manner as any other form of astrology. One of the differences between horary and other branches is its reliance on a simple set of rules. These rules are important in the judgment of the horoscope. No other branch of astrology relies on rules to the same extent as horary. It is the rules that usually decide the outcome to questions. ost questions can be answered with a simple yes or no. !pplying major aspects" or their absence" between the ruler of the ascendant and the ruler of the sign on the cusp of the house asked about or" the oon and the planet ruling the sign on the cusp of the house asked about" can decide the answer to the question. The art of horary is in knowing the rules by which these major aspects will gi#e a positi#e or negati#e result" and how to apply them. $ecei#ing the %uestion The Querent The person asking the question is referred to as the querent. The Quesited The person or thing asked about is referred to as the quesited. The Significators The significators are the planets ruling the querent and the quesited. &sually the outer planets are not used as main significators" only the traditional rulers. 'o" ruling 'corpio" 'aturn ruling !quarius and (upiter ruling )isces. ars

'ometimes a third person will ask a question in which they ha#e no direct role to play. *or instance when someone asks about a friend who is about to ha#e a baby. In such cases the querent would be ruled by the planet ruling the ascendant. The astrologer ne#ertheless should ignore their ruling planet and concentrate only on the significators for the friend and her expected baby. How to Locate the Question? ost astrologers use the latitude and longitude of the person asking the question since the question was born in their mind at their location and not at that of the astrologer+s. It is their question and only they fully understand it. ,xample -. If the querent is in New /ork and the astrologer is in 0ondon" use the latitude and longitude of New /ork which is 12N13" 45634. ,xample 7. If the querent who is in 8ublin telephones the astrologer in 0ondon" use the latitude and longitude of 8ublin which is 35N72" 96-3. ,xample 5. If the querent in :openhagen writes a letter" sends a fax or uses the electronic mail on their computer" to the astrologer in 0ondon" use the latitude and longitude of :openhagen which is 33N12" -7,53. How to Time the Question? The moment the question is asked either face to face or by telephone is the time to use for drawing the horoscope" whether it is fully understood or not. If the question is included in a letter" fax or on electronic mail" it should be timed for the moment the astrologer reads the question. If the question is not fully understood by the astrologer at that moment" it can be clarified later in discussion with the querent. The instant the astrologer first asks their own question is the correct time to use for drawing the

This point is #ery important as the astrologer is at the mercy of the querent in the sense that the question posed" which may appear to be simple enough" has deeper meanings for the querent.

It concerns their money and whether they will become rich or not. It go#erns the father and family background.In my experience the $egiomontanus house system has pro#en to be the most successful system in horary. The astrologer will be unaware of these deeper meanings unless they interrogate the querent until they understand the question fully. It is the horoscope that was drawn for the moment when the question was first asked that is the #alid one. It is belie#ed to describe working condition and part time work.. It was belie#ed to be the house that dealt with rumours and gossip.
