Even if you as the querent have prepared your question carefully, to err is human. So how do the planets testify the ‘radicality’ of your question?
- Natal chart
If your horary question is valid (in the sense I explained in part 2), there will be a clear synergy between your natal chart and horary chart. For example, the Moon in the horary chart turns out to be exactly conjunct your natal Venus, or the Ascendant degrees of the horary chart turn out to be the same as your natal MC degrees, etc.. You see connections to your natal chart as reference points and know that you and the planets are on the same track.
- Planetary hour
There is a planet assigned to the moment in which a horary chart is cast via planetary hour. For example, if you ask a question at the sunrise of Monday, the planet that rules that hour is the Moon. Your horary chart corresponds to that by giving its Ascendant/1st house to the sign of Cancer = ruled by the Moon, matching the planetary hour ruler and the Ascendant ruler. Again, it signals that you are on the right track.
The universe has confirmed in this way the validity of your question. You have asked and you have been answered. You are not to ask the same question more than once. Well, over a period of time under totally different circumstances, you may ask a similar question, but you will be a different person anyway.
There are also cautionary words for the astrologer who answers a horary question. They are called ‘considerations before judgement’:
- If the Ascendant in the horary chart is at the very last degrees of a sign (say 28 or 29 degrees), it is probably too late to do anything about the question. Asking that question came too late. Conversely, if the Ascendant degrees are very early (0 or 1), it may well be premature.
- Saturn in the 1st (querent) = possibly a lie is involved or there is something concealed about the question. While Saturn in the 7th (other/astrologer) = making a mistake is likely.
