Horary is used to answer certain questions or for predicting an event.
A chart is cast for the date/time/location where the question is asked
The rules of Horary
1) Ancient rulership
Aries = Mars
Taurus = Venus
Gemini = Mercury
Cancer = Moon
Leo = Sun
Virgo = Mercury
Libra = Venus
Scorpio = Mars
Sagittarius = Jupiter
Capricorn = Saturn
Aquarius = Saturn
Pisces = Jupiter
2) The Querrent
The ASC = The person asking the question.
The moon = A second co-signifactor besides the ASC ruler.
You can’t ask the same question again (in the same week).
Question for yourself ; leave atleast 3-4 weeks between the asked questions inorder to provide you with the correct answer given from the universe.
3) The degrees
ASC is at 0-3 degrees = The question is asked to soon.
ASC is at 27-29 degrees = The question is asked to late.
Moon 15’Libra to 15’Scorpio = Unpredictable.
Moon in late degrees = Unsafe to judge (Scorpio, Capricorn & Gemini).
4) The answer
Look for applying or separating aspects inorder to determine a yes or no.
A lot of fire = Things will develop fast.
A lot of water = There is something hidden about the topic.
A lot of air = You will get more insight and opinions on the topic.
A lot of earth = It will sustain stability, no change to the situation.
5) For lost objects
Fire = On the middle, east.
Earth = Low, south,underground/buried.
Air = High, west.
Water = Underground, north.
Significator object in 1st house = It will come back to you, or is close to you.
Strong influence of Uranus, Neptune, Pluto = Things are out of your control.
Heavily aspected SN = You are not on the right path.
The use of fixed stars & points can be a helpful addition within the chart.
Whenever a planet falls onto a specific degree it can tell more about the overal story or it can help to uncover hidden truths.
An example horary & more info about fixed points : here
• Fixed : Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo
• Mutable : Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces
• Cardinal : Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
• Angular : 1, 4, 7, 10
• Succedent : 2, 5, 8, 11
• Fixed : 3, 6, 9, 12
To predict timing of an event :
1) Count the number of degrees that are separating the Moon from making an exact aspect to the signifactor (=the questioner) Unless there is already an applying aspect
2) Count the number of degrees that separate the Moon / signifactor from one of the angles
3) Count the number of degrees that separate the Moon / signifactor from the end of the sign which they are in
• Consider the method that’s best to apply on the chart, for example if the significator is closest to an angle, than use technique nr 2.
To decide the type of time unit:
The sign & house the Moon is in.
The number of degrees that separate the signifactor from the subject.
(ex.: partner = 7th house ruler), they must be in the same sign and house to judge.
However timing an event depends on the type of question and it’s situation. For example ; If your question is regards marriage and you just got together with your partner, the time unit wont be hours, days or weeks, but more so months or years.

Applying = Future event, is yet to happen
Separating = Past event, has already happened
Usually the degrees that separate two planets from making an exact aspect, are the number of days / weeks / months or years, depending on the time unit that fits the question.
No aspect to be found between ASC ruler (querent) and the suspect? Look at the Moon as the second significator of the querent. If there is still no aspect, it usually means no or is a negative answer.
If two planets are conjunct but they are both in a different sign than it’s not an actual conjunction. Example :
”Is he having an affair?”
6th house (because it’s the 12th house of the partner=DSC) in Capricorn, 7th house (partner’s 1st house) in Aquarius
Truth or false
If someone told you something but you doubt the information that you receive, you can pull a horary chart for this to figure out whether they are lying or speaking truth.
”Is the information x told me true?”
”Is he/she lying about xyz?”
If you ask the question for yourself ; the ASC is you, so you have to look at the 3rd house of information and communication.
• What sign rules the 3rd house?
• In what sign is the ruler of 3rd?
Fixed sign = Truth
Mutable or Cardinal sign = False
• Easy questions, such as “will my ex come back?” :
You look at the ruler of the ASC and the 7th, if those two planets make a positive aspect, the answer is Yes, otherwise the answer is No.
• Neptune conjunct DSC : Confusion about partner
