Ed> Hi, Pauline
pauline> hello ed, are you here for the lecture, i am
Ed> Yes, that's why I'm here. Just a little early (to make sure everything
works right)
pauline> Are you a Virgo?
Ed> No. I'm a Leo. :-)
pauline> Have you been studying astrology long?
Ed> I've done astrology for more than 25 years.
pauline> Wow! I'm very impressed. That's great!
Ed> I think the more you get into it, the more fascinating it gets.
Ed> How long have you been studying?
pauline> I have been interested in it for many years,having others read my
chart. I started studying it for myself less than one month ago.
Ed> Oh! How do you like it so far?
pauline> I love it and hope to make it a regular part of my life! I am learning
it very quickly. However I realise it takes time to understand the patterns.
Ed> Yes. I think the real trick when you're first starting out is not to let
all the little details overwhelm you.
pauline> That's very good advice and I've made a great effort to get straight to
the fun stuff...Transits.
Ed> he-he. Yeah, the fun stuff.
pauline> Well, it does (might) help to know when they are coming. I haven't
gotten that far yet. I'm just trying to figure out which ones are happening for
me now.
Ed> There is just so much to explore. Like planetary hours, which Kaye will be
talking about tonight ..
Ed> I've been doing this all those years, but I've really never worked with
them.
Ed> Always something new to learn.
pauline> So you work primarily with the natal chart?
Ed> Yes .. Natal, transits, and some electional
Ed> Planetary hours is really part of electional, but a somewhat different
approach.
pauline> Are there any books you recommend? - What is electional?
Ed> Electional astrology is choosing ("electing") a good time to begin a new
venture.
Ed> You use the chart for the moment and location where you begin the venture.
Ed> If you set up a good chart ahead of time, then the venture will go well.
pauline> OK, I'm interested in this.
Ed> Books ... hmmm...
Ed> One book I've always recommended is a little paperback called "Write Your
Own Horoscope," by Joseph Goodavage.
pauline> or any other recommendations?

Terri> Mary's on icq. I wrote it all down. yet eases you into many of the details. how long have you been studying astrology? *** sherilyn has entered Lecture Hall from 167-222-159.c-com.

Thanks..GF=Goldfish Ed> Ah ..getting married in June. Ed..... Terri> (the gods hate us? ::giggle::) Ed> The files explain briefly the meanings of the planetary hours. can you tell everyone some about Kaye's material while we're waiting for her to get in? Terri> <g> Mary thinks highly of you... I remember. I may be back. Terri> ::stops gossiping:: Ed> We didn't get these up until late this afternoon. pauline> Anybody have any astrological explanations for why this is (isn't ) happening?

Ed> Back to our topic at hand for a moment . Ed> I'm not sure what happened to Mary. I know Marla. no.the whole gang is there.MaryO> Terri. Ed> Ack! Terri> ack is right. can we hear about Kaye's material? sherilyn> There's an awful lot to learn. Ed> Either now. and also how to calculate them..starting with the kind of practical MaryO> applications we can all use every day.thought he Terri> I don't think we met on Genie.. Yes.

. Terri> am I still here? ::giggle:: Terri> oh. MaryO> Right... good. Ed> But instead of using a complete chart. then Venus. Saturn.realized I'd forgotten to print Kaye's lecture notes from the library Ed> Pauline and I were talking a little bit about electional astrology earlier . Etc.. Mary..... :-( Terri> bummer Ed> And planetary hours are related to electional .. then Moon. still no news.electional is deciding on a good moment to begin a venture . then sunset to sunrise pauline> Still with you. good MaryO> Sunrise on Sunday starts with Sun's hour. MaryO> Tuesday with Mars.. MaryO> they use a different order than we usually do.Ed? pauline> Related in what way Ed? Ed> Sherilyn . :) Ed> Pauline .. No.. though. Ed> Planetary hours are also used for deciding "good times" to do certain things .and it's a very effective way to MaryO> judge whether something new is in harmony with the cosmos MaryO> I frequently ask clients about the exact time they met a new romantic friend MaryO> or a new business prospect... Ed> The "hours" are actually equal divisions of the daylight hours and the nighttime hours. Mars and back to Sun MaryO> by sunset MaryO> Kaye's library files tell you how to calculate the hours MaryO> once you get the hang of it. you really don't need them ahead of time. MaryO> but it takes a little practice Ed> Each day at sunrise begins with the hour of a certain planet. Ed> Mary . or do they come from the chart? pauline> (how do you tell a Mars hour?) MaryO> Pauline. MaryO> Anyone heard from Kaye? Ed> No. pauline> I understand so far..Monday starts with the Moon pauline> Ok.. sherilyn> Do we need the lecture notes to understand what is going on tonight .. and they are calculated from sunrise to sunset. Ed> Terri . Terri> is ena going to post this lecture? Ed> They're good for reference.. Ed> Then you move through the planets in order from there. you should be aggressive.. Ed> For example: During a Mars hour.MaryO> Hi..and it's amazing how much the timing MaryO> form the hours will tell you about how the relationship will proceed . Jpiter. Want to continue? pauline> Are the hours already divided.... receptive.yes Terri> oh.. you use the nature of the particular hour. you were talking when you got bumped. Ed> So they're all (as Mary pointed out) practical applications of astrology -when to do certain things in the real world..as if the venture were a newborn baby. Ed> It uses a complete chart for that moment -. then Mercury. I get it . it's easy. During a Moon hour. hours start at sunrise every day.

. I totally agree... Stephanie MaryO> or if you're going shopping.ags. MaryO> or the time you closed on your house or signed a lease.... hour-by-hour. if I were going to call an editor about a writing assignment. pauline> Mary..MaryO> Kaye's very good at practical applications for these basic astrological processes Terri> brb pauline> So I could create a natal chart for the day I started my job to see how it will go? MaryO> for the day and time you started the job. month to month.net.. you might want the Venus hour...... and you have some particular thing to do.. .and you want to MaryO> coordinate that with the things you do MaryO> especially if you don't have TIME to do a full chart Ed> If you do the complete chart for the time you started your job. MaryO> Mercury's hour will be good Ed> But if you're at work.. MaryO> you probably don't even remember when you first met MaryO> but you can avoid the Mars hours of the day when everyone feels like being up and active *** Stephanie has entered Lecture Hall from cm530858-a. MaryO> the hours are useful in the same way that knowing about a void of course moon is useful pauline> Mmmmmmm.yes. MaryO> for example.Stephanie Stephanie> Hi All :) sherilyn> what about stocks.especially Stephanie> Hi Ed! MaryO> for clothing or jewelry or holiday gifts lisag> Hi Stephanie MaryO> Hi. though. the planetary hour at that time will give you an idea of whether it's a good time to do that thing. MaryO> let's say you want a quiet chat with an old friend.you bet! Ed> Pauline . etc. pauline> The chart is long term and the hours are usefull for action decision making? Ed> Right Ed> Hours are .Mary? pauline> I need two Venus hours for shopping (hee hee) MaryO> :::smile::: MaryO> I don't know as much as I wish I did about that .bellsouth.. but different... That's different from the planetar hours.. well. Stephanie! Stephanie> And hi Lisa! Terri> hi Stephanie sherilyn> Hi.tx. sherilyn> Ok MaryO> Kaye says Jupiter's good for business and collecting money <g> MaryO> but I might want to look it over during a Mercury hour MaryO> and we each can take initiative in lots of ways with the hour for the planet . *** swelch has entered Lecture Hall from host-209-214-177-28.. :-) pauline> Gotcha! MaryO> and some things aren't WORTH the time and effort to do a full chart..com. it will show you how the job overall will go ..that's an electional chart Ed> They're related . Ed> day to day.home... Good stuff! MaryO> they tell you the present "mind set" of the universe. MaryO> but ed's right. Ed> Hi.ftwrth1. Sherilyn.

.i'll work something out with my class Terri> ok.... probably Jupiter Ed> I read that in Kaye's material. MaryO> sure.MaryO> that rules our ascendant and natal sign MaryO> In my case. Ed> Nite *** Ed has left chat. everyone. *** lisag has left chat.. *** Stephanie has left chat....see you all laters *** pauline has left chat. pauline. cast a chart and see if it's a good time to start .I'll try to be here.. Ed pauline> Same time etc? OK Nice meeting you all! MaryO> See you all next week Ed> Same time. ed... and I hadn't known that about using planetary hours. thanks Ed! :) sherilyn> Okay with me.... and she was wondering if it's okay with everyone to do this again next week Stephanie> Oh.? Ed> She still can't log on...(whatever it is I want to start MaryO> Yes.i teach 101 at this time. Ed> (about your personal Sun and asc rulers) MaryO> i hadn't thought about it. She's on the road. that makes the Sun's hours doubly useful for anything involving risk or initiative MaryO> so I might use a Sun hour to take a flyer on a stock. thanks Ed swelch> Bye all.but when I did it made sense and i could MaryO> verify it from some past decisions that worked out (when I had the charts) pauline> Could I move forward in time.election astrology is about choosing MaryO> the time to start things. :) MaryO> Thanks. yes. play a hunch MaryO> but for more serious research. Kaye just called me MaryO> and? pauline> yes.. and can't get her modem working right. Stephanie> OK. ****** End of transcript ****** . and that's how it works Ed> Sorry . sherilyn> Bye *** sherilyn has left chat. *** swelch has left chat. same station..
