What is Horary Astrology?

Horary astrology is the branch of Traditional Astrology concerned with answering specific questions.

Is it like looking at my birth chart and telling me things about myself?

No. Horary Astrology does not use a birth chart. Horary astrology requires a specific question and the astrologer gives the answer to that question based on a chart drawn for that specific question.

The Horary method addresses any subject you like and produces a degree of specificity and accuracy that is impossible to achieve by using a birth chart. Think of Horary Astrology as an oracle.


What does horary mean?

The chart used in Horary Astrology is drawn for the moment the astrologer understands the question. Thus the name “horary” meaning: “of the “hour” (from the Latin word for hour: “hora”).

That chart gives the skilled Horary Astrologer a relevant and sharp description of the situation the person is asking about, including how it will unfold in time. Thus is it descriptive as well as predictive. Likewise, the past can be investigated in a similar fashion.


What is Traditional Astrology?

Traditional Astrology is an ancient system divided into various branches. It was widely used in Europe (the West) until the 18th century when it went dormant due to the Enlightenment movement. But it remained actively used in the East. Now, since the late 20th century it is back into wider use in the West.

One of its branches, Horary Astrology, is the most “straight to the point” branch and is a source of practical, accurate and down-to-earth verifiable information, in order to help us and guide us thorough decision-making in our daily lives. It literally is “help from above”.


What is its relation to Sun Sign astrology we see in papers, magazines and websites?

There is no relation. Horary Astrology is part of Traditional Astrology (pre-18th Century). “Sun Sign” astrology was invented in the 19th century and is part of modern astrology. Sun sign astrology is an over-simplification of Traditional Astrology. Sun sign astrology cannot answer specific questions accurately, like Horary Astrology can.


What kind of questions can you answer?

I was trained and have extensive experience answering questions on a variety of subjects, from finances, law and trials, elections, career, vocation, travel, relationships and partnerships, to family, children, pregnancy, relocation, medical, psychological and spiritual inquiries, and many others.

See examples of questions and consultations >>


Can all questions be answered in one consultation?

Questions related to the same subject matter can be answered from one chart in a single reading. One may have several questions about a relationship, for example, or several medical questions, or several questions about making some financial decision, etc. They usually can be asked and answered together.

However, if for example, you have a question about a relationship and you also have a question about your career then they must be asked in separate consultations as they require different charts to be drawn.


How can a Medical Horary consultation help me?

First and foremost, I can accurately diagnose your state health in a similar way to how Eastern doctors (Chinese, Tibetan, Ayurveda, Unani/Greek), etc.) can. This diagnosis determines the type of imbalance in the four elements that you have. From there a series of recommendations can be offered to help you restore the balance and minimize or remove the cause of your symptoms as well as to abate the symptoms themselves.

Second, the information I provide about your health can save you time, money and aggravation by avoiding unsuitable treatments. I can tell you whether a treatment you are considering will have a positive result or not, including surgery. Likewise, I can tell you if a health practitioner is capable of helping you or not and/or I can help you choose between different practitioners.

Third, I can tell you the prognosis of your state of health.

Fourth, I can tell you what you may be doing to yourself that is contributing to your ill health. That is, I can uncover bad habits that you may not be aware of.


How about consultations on spirituality?

The information from the reading can give clarity about where we are on our spiritual path and reveal what the current challenges and lessons are. The information is invaluable to help us reset and re-align our minds with our inner compass and our spiritual goals while remaining aware and grounded in the reality presented in our daily lives. 

I do not tell stories about our wonderful future as an awakening species; I tell you about things as they are for you as an individual so that you may continue doing your spiritual work based on verifiable information.


What is your education and experience with traditional astrology and horary?

I received the diploma of “horary craftsman” from John Frawley, one of the greatest living masters of Traditional Astrology. And I studied Traditional Medical Astrology with Oscar Hofman. I have studied, researched, practiced, and contributed to the development of the body of Traditional Astrological Knowledge since 2005.
