What is Horary Astrology?

The most practical type of astrology. You ask questions and receive specific answers to help you make decisions.

Horary astrology is a type of astrology that deals with the interpretation of a horoscope or chart that is drawn for the moment a specific question is asked to the astrologer. This is in contrast to natal astrology, which deals with the interpretation of a person’s birth chart and is focused on understanding the individual’s personality and potential life path.

Origins and History

The word “horary” comes from the Latin word “hora,” which means hour. This reflects the focus of horary astrology on the specific moment in time when a question is asked, rather than on an individual’s birth chart.

Horary astrology has its roots in traditional astrology, which was practiced widely in ancient cultures such as Babylon, Egypt, Greece, as well as more recently in the whole of Europe. However, the rise of the Enlightenment in the 17th century led to a decline in the practice of traditional astrology, as the emphasis on scientific and rational thinking led many people to view astrology as superstition.

Despite this, horary astrology has continued to be practiced as a useful tool for answering specific questions and gaining insights into the future, understanding events and situations in the past and the present dynamics of a situation.


Overall, horary astrology offers a unique perspective on the moment in time when a question is asked. This can be particularly useful for people who are trying to make sense of difficult or confusing situations in their lives, or who are seeking answers to specific questions.

By casting a horoscope for the moment a question is asked, a trained horary astrologer can identify patterns and connections that may not be immediately apparent to the person asking the question. This can help to shed light on unseen factors and provide a deeper understanding of the situation.

Some Questions, and Answers

How can horary astrology be used for medical, spiritual and psychological matters?

Horary astrology can be used to answer both simple, and complex and nuanced questions related to medical, psychological, and spiritual issues.

For example, some examples of medical questions that can be answered using horary astrology include:

  • What is causing my chronic pain?
  • Will I recover from this illness?
  • Is this the right time for me to undergo surgery?
  • Should I try a new treatment for my condition?

Similarly, horary astrology can also be used to address psychological questions, such as:

  • How can I overcome my anxiety and stress?
  • Is this the right time for me to seek therapy?
  • What are the underlying causes of my depression?
  • How can I improve my self-esteem and confidence?

Finally, horary astrology can also be used to answer spiritual questions, such as:

  • What is my life purpose?
  • How can I connect with my higher self?
  • How can I find inner peace and tranquility?
  • What are the spiritual lessons I need to learn at this moment in time?
  • Will I achieve enlightenment?
  1. First and foremost, I can accurately diagnose your state health in a similar way to how Eastern doctors (Chinese, Tibetan, Korean, Unani/Greek), etc.) can. This diagnosis determines the type of imbalance in the four elements you have. From there a treatment can be devised to restore the balance and minimize or remove the cause of your symptoms as well as to abate the symptoms themselves.

  2. Second, the information I provide about your health can save you time, money and aggravation by avoiding unsuitable treatments and engagement with unsuitable health practitioners, including doctors. I can tell you whether a treatment you are considering will have a positive result or not, including surgery.

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

  4. 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.

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 grounded in the reality of our daily lives and the obstacles presented along the way.

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 a simplification of Traditional Astrology. Among other limitations, modern sun sign astrology cannot answer specific questions with accuracy and detail, or predict the future, like Horary Astrology can.

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

I received the diploma of “horary craftsman” from John Frawley, one of the greatest living masters of Traditional Astrology. And I studied Medical Astrology with Oscar Hofman. I have studied and practiced traditional astrology since 2005. I also offer tuition in Traditional Astrology online through the Traditional Medical Astrology Academy.
