Horary is the branch of astrology that provides clear, specific answers to specific questions. Quick, simple, and accurate, horary was for centuries the most valuable tool in any astrologer's work-box. Whether the question be on love, career, illness - or predicting the weather for a barbecue, this clear and comprehensive guide by a modern master of horary shows you how to answer it. The first edition of this book quickly established itself as a classic of astrological teaching. Now this master of the craft shares his deepening understanding, bringing what he has learned in the intervening years of teaching and practice to clarify, expand upon, and correct the original text. With the wit and lucidity that characterise his writing, the author guides all from beginners to seasoned practitioners to the very heart of horary astrology. "Frawley's prowess as a horary astrologer is awesome." - The Mountain Astrologer.
The title of this book, The Triple Witching Hour, is a Wall Street term for the end of the financial quarter. It has nothing to do with broomsticks and is unknown outside of the Street. In his third book of essays, Roell starts, appropriately enough, with an analysis of Occupy Wall Street, a short-lived protest movement which was brutally suppressed. This book will tell you why OWS failed and why astrology is essential for planning protest movements, or, for that matter, weddings and children, though you won't find them in this book. Roell then takes off the gloves. In an extraordinary bare-knuckle essay, Astrology Under Our Feet, Roell proves astrology does not fall from an empty sky, but is generated by the earth itself. We are soaked in astrology, from birth to death. Why the hostility from science? Roell finds the origins of modern science in the French Renaissance, which produced an Enlightenment that was a consensus dictat. It was based on a simplistic "science" vs: "superstition," which was formed at the very outset. In reality the Enlightenment was a clash between rich city vs: poor rural, bookish vs: hand-me-down. The Enlightenment amounts to city folk who do not know where milk comes from. Roell declares science to be a series of consensus-based fads. Over the long run, he says, as much quirky as correct. Proof? Roell says to read old science journals. Roell then sketches a new world with astrology, most particularly a new medicine, based on solid astrological analysis, rather than scientific guesswork. Roell declares astrology, like engineering but unlike science, to be based upon fundamental realities and is therefore permanent and unchanging. Along the way in this book, he adds lots of celebrity and political riff-raff for your amusement, a masterful tour de force of astrology at work. Enjoy!
Horary astrology is the only form of astrology that provides direct and decisive answers to questions that we want answered as soon as we ask them. It is pure predictive astrology and the interpretation of the chart is quite different than it would be one were reading a birthchart. Hamaker-Zondag has written this basic horary textbook for students who want to explore the concepts of horary, but who have been trained in character reading the psychological symbolism that can be seen in the natal chart. Because all facets of astrology are still developing, we are constantly adding new material to our body of astrological knowledge and technique, and Hamaker-Zondag says that these changes are based on the astrologers experience and our changing social structure. She briefly outlines some of the classical techniques used years ago for horary calculations, and then concentrates on the material that works for her in her practice in Holland. This is an excellent text for astrologers who want to start using horary techniques to answer specific questions.
