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.


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?

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Astrology – Best Time to Start Business?

Horary Question:

My husband and I are starting a feng shui business and website this year. What would be a good time, day for beginning this venture? We are looking for a day to start the business and website that would bring balance, opportunity for travel and influencel, prosperity, good health and communication. We both will be 45 this year.

Over the past two years, our family moved out of working and living with a non-profit educational institute that we dedicated 18 years of our life to. I choose to give the health of my marriage, family and daughter and health of myself. These areas had suffered from the lack of attention. Now feng shui has helped offer peace, balance, health and we are looking to offer this to others. We have both been teachers of metaphysics over the past 18 years and are now moving through a transition with the feng shui with our careers.


Nina Gryphon:

Dear T.,

Thank you for writing to me. The nice thing about horary astrology is that we can also use it to determine a good time frame for you to act. We cannot determine or search for the specifics that you requested, as that is only possible through an electional astrology reading, which is considerably more time-consuming. With an electional reading we can adjust the knobs much more; add this, subtract that. It’s like the difference between having a stereo with only the volume control, and a stereo with a full mixing board setup. We can, however, find the overall best time for you to start your business. It just will not have all the nuances and fine timing we would get through an electional reading.

I cast a horary chart for the time that I understood your question, and the horoscope for the moment is below:

Horary Astrology - When Should I Start My Feng Shui Business?

In your question, you asked about both your business and a website to promote the business. The business would be ruled by the 10th house, while the website will be ruled by the fifth house, as it is more specifically your creation. The fifth house rules all of our creations, whether they are human children or brain children. In his horoscope, the planet Mars rules both houses; since the business and the website are largely one, this seems especially appropriate. We will want to find a time when Mars is strong.

The good news is that Mars is currently in very good shape, as it has recently entered its own sign of Aries. However, we can always try to make it even stronger. In about 11°, Mars will move forward to trine Jupiter in Sagittarius. Now, Jupiter is retrograde, but it is still quite strong in the fifth house (remember, this is the house that rules the website), so Mars’s connection to it seems like an especially auspicious time to launch the business. I would take the 11° to symbolize weeks, though if 11 months seems more realistic, that is the better timing.

The other nice thing is that in 11°, Mars will move much closer to the midheaven, where it is very powerful. Currently, it is tucked away in the ninth house. Now, the ninth house represents knowledge and higher understanding, which seems appropriate for a feng shui business. However, planets cannot exert their power very easily from the cadent houses, and with Mars moving ahead 11° toward the powerful 10th house cusp, it shows your business (if started around this time) becoming an influential force in the world.

Free Astrology Advice: Horary Question – Will My Business Succeed?

Woman Holding Balance

Horary Question:

I have been considering opening a business related to house-cleaning and repairs. It will be a partnership between 3 people and we will hire and train personnel to do the job. This idea has been on my mind for some time now, but only today, talking with one of the prospective partners, I had the idea of asking that question before I venture into something that would demand a lot of work, not to mention lots of time and money. If I open this business will it be successful? Will we make money out of it? Will it grow?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear I.,

Yours is certainly an interesting question, and I only wish that everyone had such foresight before jumping into new ventures. When I do the horary reading for your question, I will look at the overall success of the prospective company, as well as the kind of money that you can make from it. I cast a chart for the moment I understood your question, an ancient method known as horary astrology that you can learn about on my website. The horary chart for your question is below:

Business Success?

First, we see that the benefic North node is on your first house itself. I see this as a positive indication, one that is not too specific, but that gives the chart a more positive spin overall. We will want to look primarily at the 10th and 11th houses, representing your business and money from it, respectively. The 10th house is ruled by Jupiter, which is in its own sign of Sagittarius in the ninth house. Your business will do quite well and grow over time, as Jupiter is so strong.

We also need to look at the 11th house, which shows the money from your prospective business. The house is ruled by Saturn in Leo in detriment in the sixth house. Saturn could probably not be any worse, which would indicate that you may have trouble making money, perhaps despite having lots of customers. It is unfortunately all too possible to run a business such that you have a lot of work without getting paid very much for your efforts. That may be the case here. However, I would also look at Mars in its exaltation in Capricorn just on the cusp of the 11th. Mars is very strong, and gives us a sense that something will be propping the profits up. Mars rules the second house of your partners, so your partners’ money. It may be that even though the business is not terribly lucrative, your partners would be willing to prop it up for a while with their own investment or something similar.

I noticed that the Moon is now void of course, meaning it will not make any aspects in its current sign of Gemini. This can mean that nothing will happen, and you may choose not to go forward with your project. We see that the Moon’s last aspect has been a trine to Mercury, the planet ruling your seventh house of partners. Mercury is in the sign of Saturn, so we can see that your partners are primarily concerned about the possible profits from the business. It may be that your partners have decided not to go forward because they do not see the potential profits.

Given the above guidance, I think your business has a great deal of potential, but I would highly recommend that you have the money angle nailed down to the last possible detail. So many people start businesses without considering whether the money they make will be enough to keep them and the business rolling. Any planned growth will also take an additional influx of cash. If there are three of you, you can do more work, but of course you will need to make more money to pay everyone fairly.
