    Horary is the branch of astrology which deals with answering questions. The astrologer can makepredictions 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 thedifferences between horary and other branches is its reliance on a simple set of rules. Theserules are important in the judgment of the horoscope. No other branch of astrology relies on rulesto 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 theirabsence" between the ruler of the ascendant and the ruler of the sign on the cusp of the houseasked 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 thesemajor aspects will gi#e a positi#e or negati#e result" and how to apply them.

    $ecei#ing the %uestion

    The QuerentThe person asking the question is referred to as the querent.

    The QuesitedThe person or thing asked about is referred to as the quesited.

    The SignificatorsThe 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" arsruling 'corpio" 'aturn ruling !quarius and (upiter ruling )isces.

    'ometimes a third person will ask a question in which they ha#e no direct role to play. *orinstance when someone asks about a friend who is about to ha#e a baby. In such cases thequerent would be ruled by the planet ruling the ascendant. The astrologer ne#ertheless shouldignore their ruling planet and concentrate only on the significators for the friend and her expectedbaby.

    How to Locate the Question?ost astrologers use the latitude and longitude of the person asking the question since thequestion was born in their mind at their location and not at that of the astrologer+s. It is theirquestion and only they fully understand it.

    ,xample - If the querent is in New /ork and the astrologer is in 0ondon" use the latitude andlongitude of New /ork which is 12N13" 45634.

    ,xample 7 If the querent who is in 8ublin telephones the astrologer in 0ondon" use the latitudeand 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 mailon 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 fordrawing 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. Ifthe question is not fully understood by the astrologer at that moment" it can be clarified later indiscussion with the querent.

    The instant the astrologer first asks their own question is the correct time to use for drawing the

    horoscope. If" because of their knowledge of the planetary mo#ements or for any other reasonsuch as waiting for the emotional impact to be strong enough after they ha#e already thought ofthe question" the astrologer decides to postpone the moment and ask again at a later time" theywill only succeed in decei#ing themsel#es. There should be no reason whatsoe#er for delaying orpostponing the time of their own question or that of their client+s and they should not expect asuccessful outcome to the question.

    Understanding the Question'ometimes it may be necessary to seek further clarification from the querent as they may notalways re#eal the full meaning behind their question or express themsel#es clearly enough. Theremay be personal reasons for this" or it may be that they ha#e difficulty in clarifying their question"or it may be that the astrologer simply does not understand. This point is #ery important as theastrologer is at the mercy of the querent in the sense that the question posed" which may appearto be simple enough" has deeper meanings for the querent. The astrologer will be unaware ofthese deeper meanings unless they interrogate the querent until they understand the questionfully. It is best to be certain of the question before delineating the horoscope.

    Asking the same question twiceIt is pointless asking the same question twice as it will only produce an in#alid horoscope on thesecond occasion. It is the horoscope that was drawn for the moment when the question was first

    asked that is the #alid one. It is essential to keep a record of questions in order to a#oid askingthe same question or one #ery similar to it" twice" perhaps in a diary especially kept for horary.

    House System;In my experience the $egiomontanus house system has pro#en to be the most successfulsystem in horary. This is due to the fact that in o#er -1 years of horary experience any mistakesthat I ha#e made ha#e been attributed to other factors and not to this house system.Ne#ertheless" other house systems may be used if preferred. ,ach astrologer must test theaccuracy of their own fa#ourite house system for themsel#es;.

    The Orbs of the PanetsIn -27? !8 the !rab astrologer known as !l @iruni wrote ;The @ook of Instruction in the ,lementsof the !rt of !strology; which was first published in ,nglish in -?51. It is belie#ed to be the firsttime in written form that each planet was allocated a certain number of degrees for its orbs.

    The Orbs of )lanets according to !l @iruni

    'un -3Aoon -7Aercury 4ABenus 4Aars CA(upiter ?A

    'aturn ?A

    Each planet had its own number of degrees of orb and when two planets wereaspecting each other their degrees were added together then divided by two. Thiswas later called the moiety of the orbs, from the French word for half, moiti.

    !lthough most astrologers agreed more or less unknowingly with !l @iruni+s orbs there were anumber of others who either widened or narrowed the orbs according to their own opinion orexperience. The famous ,nglish astrologer 6illiam 0illy ga#e the following list as his preferred setof orbs.

    The Orbs of )lanets according to 6illiam 0illy

    'un -4Aoon -7A52+ercury 4ABenus CAars 4A52+(upiter -7A'aturn -2A

    'ince the exact orbs of the outer planets are still unknown with any degree of certainty" it wouldbe reasonable to allow C degrees each for &ranus" Neptune and )luto until pro#en otherwise.
