Love’s Labour’s Lost - illustrating Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will He Come Back?”

Horary Astrology Question:

Will and I were in a serious relationship. We lived together and had just started planning our wedding. On Tuesday we were looking at rings, on Wednesday he left a note saying how much he loved me. On Thursday, he packed up his stuff and left while I was still at work. No note, no explanation, and he won’t answer my calls.

—A.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear A.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Free Reading – “Will He Come Back?”

You are symbolized by the ruler of the first house, Mars, while your feelings are symbolized by the Moon. Will is symbolized by Venus, ruler of your seventh house of partners, and his need to partner up with someone is shown by the Sun. Examining these planets will give us a sense of how you feel about him and vice versa, and whether a reconciliation is possible.

The nice thing about horary astrology is that it gives us a good snapshot of the situation, rather than just making a prediction. I suspect that Will is not as deeply interested in you as you are in him. Neither of his planets, Venus or the Sun, are in signs ruled by your planets, Mars and the Moon. However, the Sun, that part of him which wants to find a partner, is very interested in marriage. The Arabian Part of Marriage falls at 4° Gemini, and so is ruled by Mercury. With the Sun in Virgo, we see that he is very much interested in marriage; Mercury is the ruler of Virgo by sign and by exaltation.

This is probably why he left; he likes the idea of marriage, but he just doesn’t have the deep feelings for you to make it happen. Unfortunately, you really do care about him deeply on an emotional level, as we see that the Moon, significator of your emotions, is in Taurus, where it is ruled by Venus. Your main planet, Mars, is very interested in Mercury: you definitely want marriage badly.

I am concerned that he is not going to come back, since I just do not see the emotional interest on his side that would enable a relationship. We do see an applying sextile aspect between Venus and Mars, your and his main significators. However, neither of those planets is very interested in the other — there probably will be some contact with him in the near future, but I do not expected to lead to reconciliation.

The fact that the Moon is conjunct the malefic fixed star Alcyone is not good either; it shows occasion for regret or sadness. Combined with the fact that the Moon is void of course, I wouldn’t expect any major new developments in the situation. The good news is that you will shortly get over this difficult state, as the Moon leaves Taurus and enters Gemini.

Horary Astrology: Missing Child – Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

September 6, 2007 by  

The Bohemian - illustrating Horary Astrology: Missing Child “Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

Horary Question:

My close friend’s 13-1/2 yr old daughter has run away from home for the second time (1st time 8/2; “found” by police 8/19 hiding in a closet at a friend’s home & returned to mother that day; then she ran away again 8/24 and is still “missing”) and as happened during her first runaway attempt, is evidently living with individuals who have no problem “hiding” a minor child!

Missing child police reports, etc. have been filed by the mother. This child is also not attending school, so truancy is now an additional issue. She is for all intents and purposes 100% living “underground”. Of course the mother is beside herself. This child does not come from an abusive environment, lack for much in life, etc. Truly a sad, sad situation. What can you see happening in this situation? Will she return? Why are the police so lax in seemingly all they do with this case? What about the individuals who are certainly breaking the law by harboring a runaway minor child?

I will direct the mother to read this to (hopefully) provide some comfort to her in this very unfortunate situation.

—C.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear C.

As always, thank you for writing to me. What a strange situation; I would expect the girl to have told the mother her reason for running away. Since we have very little information, I will try to figure it out from the horoscope. I cast a horary chart for the time I understood your question:

Runaway Child Horoscope - illustrating Horary Astrology: Missing Child “Why Does Daughter Keep Running Away?”

Since the mother is a close friend of yours, we would give her the 11th house of friends, and its ruler, the Sun in Virgo. Her runaway child is shown by your friend’s 5th house of children, and its ruler, Mars in Gemini.

First, let’s take a look at when the missing child will return: the Sun will square Mars at 24 degrees of their respective signs, so it will be in 11 or 12 somethings. The applying planet (the Sun) is in a cadent house, so we would likely see this as days. There is the possibility we are looking at hours, but days seems more likely given how long the girl has been gone. So she will be back in just under two weeks. Will it be for good? I’m not convinced; with mutable signs dominating the chart, ther may be a bit more of this back and forth lifestyle.

Second, let’s try to figure out why she is running away. With Mars in the sign of Mercury and detriment of Jupiter, she either really likes what Mercury represents or hates whatever Jupiter represents. Mercury rules the missing child’s 11th house of friends, so this may be one reason she’s running away. Jupiter rules her 2nd, 4th, and 5th houses, so it could be she simply doesn’t like being at home, or potentially has some self-esteem issues (2nd house). But really, why not just ask her, and maybe get a therapist to talk to her?

Third, why are the police not doing anything? They don’t want to deal with it, especially after having already done their duty once. The police are represented by the 10th house of authority, and its ruler, Mercury. Mercury is in the fall of the Sun (the mom) and the detriment of Mars (the daughter); it’s not that they don’t care. Rather, they are intentionally not pursuing this. They certainly could do so; Mercury is powerfully placed in the first house. But they had already done so once, and don’t want to get involved again. Note how Mercury was recently in its own sign and exaltation, Virgo – in the recent past, the police were doing their policing, as they should have. But they are onto other things, and couldn’t be bothered, since there seems to be no danger to the child.

Fourth, why are these people harboring her? Without knowing her exact relationship to these people, it’s difficult to say. If they are just anybody to her (not friends, for example), we would take them to be shown by Venus in Leo. Since Mars has recently sextiled Venus, this is quite possible. If this is the case, the people with whom she is staying are not bad people. Venus is in its own term, which lends some amount of character to the people involved. Which leads me to believe that she has told them a compelling story – true or not – about why she has run away.

Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will I Get a Ph.D. Degree, and When?”

September 1, 2007 by  

Little Schoolgirl illustrating Horary Astrology

Horary Astrology Question:

After completing my MBA in 2001, I applied to a number of universities over the years to pursue a Ph.D. degree but, at best, I was on a waiting list. I have always felt this is something I need to attain. I am currently pursuing an industry designation but I still desire a higher academic education.

—A.


Nina Gryphon:

Dear A.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Get Ph.D.? Horary Astrology Question

Your education is signified by the ninth house, which rules higher knowledge and advanced learning. The ninth house is ruled by Venus, which is retrograde in the 12th house, in Leo. Venus is not terribly strong in Leo, and its retrogradation is also an affliction. The 12th house location is considered very weak as well, as the 12th house is malefic. Venus is also applying to a sextile with Mars, which is not considered tremendously helpful, as Mars is a malefic planet.

Perhaps going for your Ph.D. may not be the best idea, given the extent of Venus’s afflictions. But let’s see whether you will end up going for the degree anyway. Mercury is your significator, as it rules your first house of the self. Mercury is very strong, because it is in Virgo, the sign of its domicile and exaltation. However, Mercury is in the fall of Venus, showing your disappointment with getting the Ph.D. admission in the past.

Ideally, I would want to see an aspect between Mercury and Venus, indicating you obtaining the degree. However, we also note that both of your significators; Mercury and the Moon, will enter sign is ruled by Venus (ruler of higher education in this chart), so there is a possibility of attaining your Ph.D. in nine or 10 years. However, without a direct aspect between our two main planets, I think this is a remote possibility, instead indicating your wanting to return to school at that time.

Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “When Is the Best Time for My Plastic Surgery?”

August 30, 2007 by  

Spanish Beauty ilustrating Horary Astrology question - Best time for plastic surgery?

Horary Astrology Question:

I want to do my breast augmentation and nose surgery this year; what is a good day or month?

—D.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear D.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Horary Astrology Horoscope - Best time for plastic surgery?

This is a relatively simple question. To answer it, we will need to find the best time for the planet that represents you or the thing that you want to accomplish. This is not a true electional reading, which takes more time (and requires your natal chart as well) natal, but will often give us the best time and date down to the minute, if we wish. However, as a broad indicator of the best time to act, horary astrology can be quite helpful.

In this horoscope, you are represented by Venus, ruler of the first house of self. This is especially accurate because you are getting surgery done on your face, which is ruled by the first house. The breasts are ruled by the fourth house, so we will want to take a quick look at that as well. However, Venus is going to be our prime indicator for both surgeries.

Venus is retrograde at the moment, which is considered an affliction for a planet, because it is temporarily traveling in the opposite direction that it normally does. It will go direct again at 16° of Leo, which is in about 2°. This means that you should wait about two months, and then you can have your surgery whenever you want this year.

If we really want to split hairs, we can look at what Saturn is doing, as it rules the fourth house of breasts. Saturn is about to move into Virgo in about half a degree, where it is rather stronger than in Leo, its current sign. So you could potentially have your breast surgery as soon as two weeks from now. However, to be on the safe side, I would suggest that you wait two months before doing either surgery. Even though plastic surgery is very routine, it is not risk-free, and doctors do mess it up. I certainly do enough electional readings for plastic surgery “fix it” procedures, where the doctor got it wrong the first time.

Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will They Meet with Me and When?”

August 29, 2007 by  

Pelt Merchant of Cairo - illustrating Horary Astrology reading

Horary Astrology Question:

I have been pursuing the director of EA Sports video game company with an innovative idea I had in a dream. I have emailed him numerous times with no response. I got the director’s email from an online associate who has worked with EA Sports in the past. If it was not for this online associate, I would have never had the opportunity to get the email and make suggestions. I have not told my idea to EA Sports yet, but I feel when they hear and see it, a contract will be negotiated. I’ve been telling the director of EA Sports Los Angeles (EALA) that this concept I have will change the gaming world and that it’s an opportunity to be the trailblazer of the bunch. Once we implement this idea, the rest of companies will follow our lead. In other words, I’m “pitching” to them.

—R.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear R.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Horary Astrology - Will they meet with me and if so, when?

In this horoscope, you are represented by Mars, ruler of the first house of self. Your code significator is the Moon. The company is represented by Venus, ruler of the seventh house of other people. We will look at how these planets relate to one another to get a sense of how interested they are, and whether/when you will get a meeting with them.

We see that the Moon is inside the fifth house, in the exaltation of Venus. So we can tell that you are rather emotionally involved with your creative new idea, and at the same time have perhaps an exaggerated expectation of the company’s response. The Moon is void of course, which means that it will not make any major aspects in its current sign. In the absence of other testimony, this means that nothing much will happen in this situation.

Meanwhile, Mars, your primary significator, is in the eighth house, which rules the company’s money. Obviously, you’re interested in them funding this idea. At the same time, neither the Moon or the Mars are strongly placed in the horoscope, which indicates that you do not have a lot of power in the situation.

Now let’s take a look at how the company views you. They are symbolized by Venus conjunct the midheaven, so we see that all of the power to act is in the company’s hands. Venus is not interested in the Moon or Mars, so getting a very positive response, especially committing money to your idea, it seems unlikely. We would want to see somewhat more enthusiasm on their part. Venus and Mars will sextile at 17° of their respective signs; which would indicate a possible communication or even meeting between you and the company in two to three weeks. However, as I mentioned, I don’t think that they are going to show a great deal of interest. If that’s the case, why don’t you create the product yourself?

Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will He Return to Me?”

Horary Astrology - Young Majas

Horary Astrology Question:

I met J on July 4th and sparks flew. We hit it off, but by July 20th, he pulled away saying that his heart is not opened completely yet. We have not communicated since July 20th but I have not been able to forget him. I plan to e-mail him around September 12, will he be ready to come back to me by then?

—M.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear M.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Horary Astrology - Will he return to me?

The first thing we notice about this horoscope is the fixed star Vindemiatrix on the ascendant. It is associated with separation and sadness, and generally does not bode well for the relationship. We see that you are attracted to him, though I don’t think you’re quite in love with him; the planet indicating your urge to find a mate, Venus, is in the sign of the Sun. Venus is also retrograde, showing your thoughts of rekindling the relationship. The Moon, which shows your emotions, is in the detriment of the Sun, showing that you are somewhat heartbroken and disappointed with his behavior.

So how does he feel about you? Mars, which rules your seventh house of partners, is in Gemini, where it doesn’t have a lot of interest in either Venus or the Moon, your two planets. The Sun, which represents his physical side, has just moved into Virgo, where it is in the fall of Venus. So your attraction is not reciprocated by him, and this seems unlikely to change. The two of you may be in contact in the future, as indicated by the applying sextile between Venus and Mars; as Venus is going backwards, it will form a sextile aspect with Mars. However, with Mars not indicating interest in you, I don’t think much will come of this communication. The Moon will also shortly oppose Saturn, which would give us a general indication of disappointment.

To sum up, I’m afraid that he is just not interested. The good news is that there are 3 billion other men in the world from among whom you can choose!

Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will I Make It in Show Business?”

August 24, 2007 by  

Free Reading - Caged Bird

Horary Question:

My entire life people I have met have been amazingly drawn to me. Strangers I’ve spoken to have always gazed at me with the same wide-eyed awe and uttered “You are going to be so famous” or “You are going to really make it”. The thing is, I just turned 21 and yet I have only flirted with the smallest outskirts of fame. I’ve shot for a few magazines, performed in many theater productions, been in TV and on commercials. I’ve met with all the right people who can get me there…yet it seems I am still here, stuck. What do you see?

Should I just give up and accept my life as an above-average looking person, or continue to charge forth towards the goal I want? I could care less about fame or fortune, I just want to act in TV. I had a Tarot reading about two months ago regarding this, and it said that I am exactly where I need to be, despite me feeling extreme doubts. Though if I am where I need to be (my city is NOT a market for my dreams), why has nothing happened?

—B.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear B.,

Thank you for writing to me. I can certainly understand your frustration and impatience, especially since you don’t have forever to launch your career, and time is of the essence. Nowadays, people seem to get started in show business when they’re still in the single-digit years! I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Free Reading - Will I Make it in Show Business?

Because you are curious about your career and eventual success, we have to look at the 10th house of career, honor, and fame. In this horoscope, the 10th house is ruled by Moon in Capricorn in the third house. The Moon is avoid of course, meaning that it will not make major aspects in its current sign. None of these indications are particularly positive; the Moon is in the sign of its detriment, it is in a cadent house, and other planets are not assisting it by aspect or reception. This does not bode terribly well for your show business fame.

If we look at the ruler of the first house, which represents you, we get Venus in Leo retrograde in the 10th house. Venus is not terribly strong in Leo, and because it is retrograde, there is a sense that you feel you’re moving backward instead of forward in your career. Unfortunately, we don’t really see any positive breaks happening for Venus in the near future. I suspect that your acting career might not take you as far as you would like.

I think you can definitely act, and you should be able to get some gigs, but I just don’t think it’s going to lead to the kind of success you’re envisioning. This is because Jupiter, which is very strong in its own sign of Sagittarius, rules the fifth house of acting and plays. Still, Jupiter is not really linked to the Moon, which represents your success.

However, I am encouraged to see the benefic and protective star Spica conjunct the ascendant; we see that even though you may not attain your heart’s desire, you will be taken care of and things will turn out okay for you. I looked around the chart to see possible sources of success for you. I think you should continue to pursue acting, as indicated by the strong Jupiter, but also think about creating a career for yourself that will sustain you even as you get older. Hopefully, you are getting a decent education, which is governed by Mercury in the 11th house, ruling the ninth house of higher education. Mercury is quite strong, so this is one possible avenue. The ninth house also rules travel and foreign countries, so you could think about a career which involves lots of travel (such as sales, where it never hurts to be attractive), short distance or long distance.

Death of the Virgin - Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “How Long Will My Wife Live?”

Horary Astrology Question:

My wife has been housebound for over eight years, she has had a heart attack in 1999 and a quadruple bypass, is arthritic, diabetic, needs constant care, is overweight, immobile, on tons of meds, needs insulin twice daily, and her memory is slipping, I, her husband for 57 years and caregiver, would be grateful to know how long she will have to suffer.

—B.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear B.,

Thank you for writing to me. What a difficult situation yours must be; taking care of a seriously ill person is not easy, especially when there is little chance for a complete recovery. I cast a horary chart for the time that I understood your question, and the horoscope is below:

When will she die? Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “How Long Will My Wife Live?”

Your wife is shown by the ruler of the seventh house of partners, Mars. How is Mars? Not so good; it is in Taurus, in the sign of its detriment. Now, we see that Mars is about to move into Gemini, where it is considerably less afflicted than in Taurus. However, the context of her health problems is such that we would not really expect a major recovery for her.

Since we are asking about death, we will need to look at when your wife’s planet, Mars, will aspect Venus, which rules her eighth house of death. The timing for this aspect will indicate approximately the time of your wife’s passing away. We see that shortly after entering Gemini, Mars will square Venus in Virgo. This will happen at about 0.3° Gemini/Virgo. This means that Mars has about a degree to go before making that aspect with Venus. Since Mars is in a cadent house and a fixed sign, this would indicate an approximate timing of one month (!), while Venus being in a mutable sign in a succedent house, also points to a timeline of months rather than years. Venus only has to travel half a degree to get to the aspect, but it is moving very slowly, and it is in a mutable sign, which tends to add a little bit to our estimate. As we do not have your wife’s birth horoscope to confirm this, we should be very conservative about this prediction, and say that we are looking at one year instead of one month; in either case, we would expect her to pass away within a year.

Hope in Prison of Despair - Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “Will My Enemy Go to Jail?”

Horary Astrology Question:

My enemy is a cop. For years he has stalked me and had others help him; they included members of my own family. Now he has been caught on tape threatening the life of another cop. This pleases me because I made the same claim several years ago, but was ignored and ridiculed. What’s going to happen?

—K.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear K.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time that I understood your question, and the horoscope is below:

Will My Enemy Go to Jail?  Horary Astrology

Because he is your open enemy, the cop gets the seventh house. Its ruler is Venus in the sign of its fall, Virgo. This can indicate that he is indeed a baddie; because Venus is essentially a benefic planet, he may look good on the outside but is rotten on the inside. A planet in the sign of its fall can show the person is already in jail – presumably, he is not yet in jail. So the bad state of Venus can only be a comment on his nature.

At first glance, it may seem that he is going to get off scot free. This is because Venus is retrograde and will soon enter Leo, where it is not nearly as afflicted as it is in Virgo. However, before Venus can escape into Leo, it will run into a square aspect with Mars. Here, Mars rules the 12th house (turned) of your enemy, and the 12th house rules imprisonment. So he is trying hard to get out of trouble, and for a while it may seem as though he will escape, but he will go to jail after all.

Free Reading – “What Kind of Relationship Will We Have?”

Horary Astrology Question:

I’ve known my friend C. for two years. We were an item for years and love each other very dearly but finally the many forces working against us (his friends and family disapproving, long-distance, my constant travels) had their way and we stopped talking for two years. Last Memorial Day he began communication again and we learned that we’re both moving to the same city and will likely be going to the same university despite that never being in our plans when we knew each other. This will all be happening next year. He’s in a relationship right now and I of course live halfway across the country. I’m wondering what type of relationship we will have when we live in California and see each other regularly. Will we be friends? More? Less?

We love each other dearly and have so much respect for each other, but if it’s best we be just friends, I would love that just as much and I think he would as well.

—S.

Nina Gryphon:

Dear S.,

Thank you for writing to me. I cast a horary chart for the time that I understood your question, and the horoscope is below:

Will We Get Together?  Horary Astrology: Free Reading – “What Kind of Relationship Will We Have?”

In this horoscope, you are represented by Venus, ruler of the first house of self, and also by the Moon, your co-significator. One question is whether your friend is represented by the 11th house of friends, or the seventh house of partners. I’m inclined to put him in the seventh house of partners, partly because the two of you had had a relationship, and that context is also implied in your question.

My sense is that the two of you will definitely be in contact, and may even reattempt your romance, but it I am not convinced there is enough mutual interest here for a full-on romantic relationship. Here is why: he is symbolized by Mars, ruler of the seventh house of partners, and by the Sun, which is his physical/hormonal side. What is interesting is that both of your planets, Venus and Mars, are each moving into a new sign, presumably the indication of both of you moving to a new place. The interesting thing here is that when Mars enters the next signed, Gemini, it really loses interest in Venus and the Moon (as it is currently in the sign and exaltation of these two, respectively).

For your part, I think you will be more interested in pursuing a relationship with him, but I’m still not quite seeing it in emotional terms; Venus will enter the sign of the Sun, so there’s plenty of physical attraction on your end, but with the Moon having recently entered Pisces, your feelings for him are not quite strong enough to sustain a romantic relationship. That the two of you will be in contact is indisputable: Mars is squaring Saturn, and Venus will conjoin Saturn shortly after its reentry back into Leo. So we have Saturn collecting the light between Mars and Venus. Saturn rules the fifth house of pleasure and parties, so we could see the two of you getting together in some fun social setting, or through a mutual friend symbolized by Saturn.

What about friendship? I think it’s possible, but I’m still not seeing enough interest on his part, especially from Mars, to say that the two of you will become fast friends. The most likely scenario is that your relationship will continue positively, but I wouldn’t expect any dramatic improvements from where things stand today.
