What Is Horary?

Horary is the most precise and revealing divination technique in astrology. It is unparallelled to guide you through a challenging or confusing situation. Not only does horary give you Yes/No answers with expected timings, but it also accurately zeroes in on the people involved, revealing their true motives, clarifying your options, and helping you make critical life decisions. It allows you to better understand your current situation and put strategies in place when you’re feeling stuck.

Plus, it’s based on logic, strict rules, and scientific calculations, not something picked out of thin air. It’s an old form of astrology that’s been in high demand for almost 2000 years – for good reason!

In past centuries, horary was used instead of natal astrology, because not everybody knew their exact birth time. Horary was the most popular form of astrology, honed over centuries of practice, from Babylonian times, through Islamic madrassas, and all the way to European scholars like Galilei and Newton. It has recently experienced a revival following the discovery and translation of ancient texts.

Unlike natal astrology, which looks at personality and broad life trends, horary is exclusively focussed on a particular question. Much like an oracle, you ask a specific question and a chart is created for the moment (and place) the question is accepted by the astrologer. Ancient astrological principles are then used for the interpretation and pieced together to arrive at a meticulously constructed response to your burning question.

Formulating the question with precision is fundamental. There are many types of questions that can be answered using horary techniques, for example questions about career choices, investments, money, purchases, the people in your life, and more. The most important requirement is that the question asked is meaningful. It has to be about something that is really significant in your life right now. Most horary questions come down to whether you should continue on the same path or change direction. Some are about trust in others, or in the outcome of a situation. A few are about locating lost objects.

What I need from you for a horary consultation

After purchasing a horary consultation, please send me an email with the following information:

  1. What is the question that “keeps you awake at night,” so to speak? Formulate the question as clearly as possible, and ideally suitable for a yes/no answer.
  2. What are your constraints/limitations/concerns in this situation?
  3. Who is affected by or affecting this situation? Genders, ages, personalities, roles, anything that can help me identify them in the chart.
  4. What kind of timescales apply to the situation – days, weeks, months, years?
  5. What are your birth details, so I can confirm the chart is right for you? Date, Month, Year, Time to the minute, Town/City and State, please.
  6. Paypal email address and transaction ID, as proof of purchase.

Cases in which I cannot do a horary for you

IMPORTANT: Sometimes I may have to refund you, because of a horary rule that prevents me from going ahead with the work. The rule is called Strictures Against Judgement and happens when in the calculated horary chart:

  • Saturn is in the 1st, 7th or 10th house, or
  • the Moon is in late Libra/early Scorpio, or
  • the Ascendant is at a late or early degree.

Some of the risks of proceeding with the reading in defiance of this rule:

  • The time chart of the chart is inaccurate and there may be errors in the chart
  • The question is misunderstood or phrased incorrectly
  • You have no faith or trust in the counsel, or the astrologer has a bias against you or some other personality conflict that mars the relationship
  • The question asked is not the question you really wanted to ask. Why? Because you were likely too afraid to ask the real question
  • The chart is either too dangerous or too unpredictable to judge (Via Combusta)
  • The question is trivial or disrespectful
  • You are asking the question for somebody else, thus posing an ethical question

What to expect next

If your question makes sense to me, and the astrology says it’s OK for me to interpret the chart, I then get started right away! If I need to clarify what you’re asking, we’ll have an exchange of emails, calls or messages until I am confident I correctly and fully get the question and the circumstances.

By analysing the chart according to a set of strict traditional rules, I can see the dynamics at play and give you your answer. This consists of a couple of pages in PDF format, plus a quick Zoom call if you’d like to discuss it in detail.
