Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question – Where Are My Boss’s Forms?

March 4, 2007 by  


Horary Question:

Last November my boss went on an overseas trip. I completed his travel claim form and sent it to Helen for processing. She was away on her annual leave and the temp can’t remember where she put it. The situation is desperate as the claim involves approximately $25 000 (US). I think it’s in Helen’s office on the second floor – but she is not willing to listen to me. Can you help me find these claim forms?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear C.,

Lost object horaries can be the most satisfying when they work, but sometimes, they can just be too darn puzzling. I have to admit my rate of success with these is not nearly as good as with other, run-of-the-mill type questions. That said, let’s give it the old college try. The horary chart for your question is below:

Where are the Forms?  Horary Question

Your boss’s forms are shown by the Moon, because it is the second house from the 10th, so the boss’s possession. Before we get into where these forms may be, let’s take a look at whether they will be found. We would want some kind of applying aspect between the Moon and either your significator or your boss’s. The Moon is currently void of course, showing that will not make any aspect in its current sign of Virgo. This is one testimony against forms being located. I also do not love the fact that both of the luminaries are under the horizon, indicating that the object cannot be seen. I do like the fact that the Moon is right on an angle, which increases the odds it will be recovered.

The Moon just inside the first house indicates it is very close to your usual place at work. I suggest you take a good look at and in (and behind) your desk and anywhere near your area at work. To give you a sense of what I mean by “close,” I remember once I played a game where I had someone hide an agreed-upon object in my house, and then I had to use horary to find it. The object’s significator was just inside the first house cusp as the Moon is here. The person had placed the object under the mattress of my bed. I would say that is close.

Perhaps the temp had put them somewhere on your desk, and they got shuffled in with some other documents. I hope this is of some help, and let me know if this saga has an ending.

Free Astrology Advice: Will I Ever Marry?

March 4, 2007 by  

Marriage at Cana

Horary Question:

In 2000, I fell deeply in love with a man I thought I would marry and I also got my dream job. Unfortunately, both of these situations failed miserably after 9/11. I haven’t been in a serious relationship or a permanent job since — just lots of dating and lots of temping, despite putting tons of effort into both areas. : )

I think it is about time for me to have a change of luck, and since I would very much like to marry and have a family soon, I wonder when that will finally happen?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear S.,

As you can probably tell from reading the questions on my website, it seems like everyone in the world has the same problem, or at least a similar one. Maybe I am in the wrong business, and really should use this blog to provide introductions… but, I digress. Horary astrology is an excellent tool to learn when you will get married, even though it is better to look at the natal chart, horary will usually give us a pretty good rough estimate. The horary chart for your question is below:

Will I Ever Marry?  Horary Horoscope

You are shown by ruler of the first house, Mercury, which is in Aquarius, retrograde in the sixth house. Mercury also rules the Part of Marriage, which is at 7° of Virgo. Mercury has recently retrograde back from Pisces, where it was in its own detriment and fall, indicating a situation where you were unhappy in the past and/or didn’t wish to marry. But, you have obviously changed your mind. The Moon, showing your emotions, is also in Virgo, indicating that you are very interested in marriage at the moment, and also are rethinking your priorities. Your feminine “must find a man” side is shown by Venus in Aries. Venus is in the seventh house of relationships, so we can see that again, in general, you are ready for a relationship.

Your potential husband is shown by the ruler of the seventh house, Jupiter in Sagittarius. Jupiter in Sagittarius is wonderful to see, because he is very powerful here, except that he is in the detriment of Mercury. So we have a sense here that the man you will have the opportunity to marry is very interested in himself, and may not be very interested in marriage. His co-significator, the Sun, showing that aspect of him which also wants to find a mate, is shown by the Sun in Pisces. In Pisces, the Sun hates whatever Mercury represents (most likely marriage, since presumably you do not know him yet), but he exalts Venus, showing that he does want a partner. We see that Venus and Jupiter will form a trine aspect in about 4°, indicating that an opportunity to marry him will arise in four somethings (I would imagine years, but feel free to prove me wrong and get the proposal in four months).

As far as kids are concerned, the chart does not show it to be an absolute dealbreaker, but neither does it show you brimming over with fertility. I do not love the ruler of your fifth house of children in a barren sign (Saturn in Leo), afflicting the spouse’s house of fertility. The Moon is also in the barren sign of Virgo. However, both Venus and Mercury are in semi-fertile sign, so there is some hope, and I wouldn’t rule out a child in the future. The safer thing to do may be to try fertility treatment but don’t go overboard if it doesn’t work out the first time, and consider other options.

Astrological Weather: March Forecast for San Francisco Bay Area (Peninsula)

March 2, 2007 by  

Sunset After Storm - Sicily Coast

In March 2007, we can expect mostly dry weather, with only the occasional heavy clouds or rain, and getting increasing rain toward the end of the month. Many of the astrological indicators this month are connected with the hot and dry planet Mars, as well as Jupiter, which is hotter and drier than usual, because of its location in a fire sign, Sagittarius. As a result, whenever these two planets are active, we are not going to see a whole lot of rain or major clouds/fog. We will see more rain activity from the Moon passing into the sign of Cancer and applying to Mercury in Pisces, but that will not happen until the last week of March.

Last month’s prediction of an increased chance of earthquakes in February proved accurate, as we had two small (Richter scale 3 and 4) earthquakes that could be felt in our area. For the first half of March, there’s still the possibility of an earthquake, but the indicators are not as strong as last month. Similar indicators, namely Mercury, that show possible earthquakes, also describe wind conditions. The first half of March should be somewhat turbulent, though mostly we would see steady but moderate breezes. The second half of the month shows a smaller likelihood of earthquakes, with some medium northern breezes coming through.

The overall temperature for the first three weeks of March will be colder than usual, and it will seem like the cold weather is holding on quite tenaciously. The last week of March (starting with the Sun’s entry into Aries on March 21) will warm up a little, but it may not be the best time to break out the swimsuit just yet. The warming influence of Jupiter will be tamped down by its trine to Saturn, again giving cooler than usual weather. Also, the prominence of Mercury in Pisces, a cold planet in a cold sign, promises both coolness and moisture.

Planets in Your Horoscope: Jupiter Trine Saturn… and What to Do about It (March 16, 2007)

For this particular aspect, given that Jupiter is so strong in Sagittarius and Saturn is so weak in Leo, depends on whether the activity you would like to start is ruled by Jupiter or Saturn in your horoscope. It’s all a matter of perspective, you see. Let’s say that your house of career is ruled by Saturn, and you’re looking for a new job (if you haven’t followed my advice and actually ventured out of your nuclear fallout shelter for the last couple of years while Saturn was passing through its detriment in Leo, I can’t help you. I’m joking, of course).

Jupiter trine Saturn is like a brief respite from the ugliness of Saturn in its detriment and retrograde at the same time. So now would be a very good time to do things that Saturn rules in your horoscope, as Jupiter will temporarily lend a hand and make these endeavors luckier than they normally would be. The good news is that because Jupiter and Saturn, due to their simultaneous retrograde motion, will be locked in the trine aspect through May, you have quite a while to make your Saturnian move.

If, on the other hand, you want to do something that Jupiter rules in your chart, and let us say that Jupiter rules your ninth house of long journeys, Saturn in detriment contacting this wonderful Jupiter is probably not the best time to start something. Again, Saturn is going to be contacting Jupiter for quite awhile, so if you’re reading this before March 16, do your Jupiterian thing now, before you have to wait a couple of months for Saturn to move along.
