The Art of Timing Part 4.

A method of planetary timing is using planetary hours. Planetary hours are engaging in certain activities while a Planet rules the hour of the day or night.

Here is a brief review of planetary hours:

Saturn: Promotes strength, it is good to start or carry out all activities that require strength during this time, even to have fights or engage in combat. The hour of Saturn is for taking a stone and throwing it into a deep pit, and then building your house on that pit, this house which you will also build out of stone, will never be blown down by the big bad wolf.

Jupiter: Promotes peace, philosophy, love and concord. Thus it is a good time to try and make peace, negotiate contracts, and expand ones boundaries. If you are going to travel or venture, start it during the hour of Jupiter, for he will take you to the furthest reaches of space where you will behold the cool velveteen colors of cosmic nebula that resemble the eyes of Gods. Oh..yes buy a lottery ticket too!

Mars is a good time to be energetic, to engage in movement that requires efforts, to use force, will power, and determination. When you have to fight for an ounce of ground, start your fight when it is the hour of Mars. When it is the hour of Mars slam on the accelerator and crash through the brick wall with your spears, be sure that Rage against the Machine is on, for the time has come to make the bastards see the bloody light, The world and Humanity can no longer be treated this way by the Man.

The Sun is meant to illuminate, to cause brilliance, and to bring fame. Time your activities where you need clarity and genius, where you want to shine, where you want everything you do to be known to others, for the hour of the Sun. You don’t sneak out of the building during the hour of the Sun, because you will be seen by the secretary in the corner who you thought was working hard flipping through the shoes section of the Macy’s website.

The hour of Venus is for enjoyment, this is the time to explore the senses. Go to the art Gallery, walk around the park, write a love poem, start making the chocolate cherry cheesecake to feed to the lucky man or woman who is coming over tonight to taste of the sweet and savory.

The Hour of Mercury is for travelling, exchanging goods, writing and communicating, talking your head off over the phone with your third cousin who you have not seen since the family reunion in 8 years ago, when he drank too much tequila and started talking about the joys of sex in front of your children.

The Hour of the Moon is for sitting down in a hot bath and drinking mint tea with honey in it, then getting out and drying yourself off with egyptian cotton towels while singing Aretha Franklin songs. When the hour of the Moon strikes call your mom and tell her you love her.

When you use the planetary hours in the way indicated you can begin to harmonize with the planetary spirits who are communicating at that time. They are sending out their voices telling us this is the harmony of their particular Opera. If you listen to it your body will start to move like a drum beating in a harmonious rhythm.

The challenge is that this rhythm may feel uncomfortable for you, there are parts of your life that you have probably been ignoring, you are just out of the habit of tunning in with these Gods. You may not be able to spoil yourself, you might be so geared to the message of Mars and Saturn that Venus has long missed you.

When you connect again with your missing gods it will feel good. Your pantheon will be expanding, and your play will become more epic and your soul will begin to shine like a star. This star will really light everyone up.

The point is not that you check the Astrology Hour Clock before you speak or act, rather it is that you begin to see how the gods are speaking to you. They speak from with out and from within, the problem is that we have grown unconscious of these gods and how they speak, so they run you.

You can not be a Hero until you have learned how to listen to the Gods. I want more than anything for you to become a Hero.
Look, the astro sage has the support of the Planetary Hours behind his backPublished during the hour of Jupiter which rules Publishing.

The Art of Timing P.3.

Sahl Said ” All are agreed that elections are weak, except those for kings. For these people (even should their elections be weakened) have a root….indeed you should not elect anything for the low-class and for merchants and for those who follow…. unless it is more than that: there nativities, and the revolutions of those years, and on the nativities of their children.”

The meaning of these lines is that elections and good fortune are assured if you have a good chart. That is an astrologer can in general do elections for a King, or CEO and be assured that good fortune will come about from the election. However, the whole process of electing a time becomes much more difficult for people who do not have stellar charts.  You not only have to look at the election, you also have to look at there natal chart, and a horary chart.

The view of astrology masters was that you are born with a certain potential, and you are not meant to go beyond that potential, rather you are meant to live well within that potential. Elections are trying to game the universe. In an election you are trying to get the best potential we can by timing a project. But, our potential, is according to astrology, limited by our birthchart. Which is to say, if you have birthchart that is average, meaning not meant to excel one to the hights of fame and riches, if you, say submit a film script at a certain time, it may become a film, based on the good election, but if you don’t have king fortune in your chart, its not going to become the next Super Mega Blockbuster film.

So what to do, why bother, well just because you can’t win the lotto with the election, it doesn’t mean you can’t make your life, and circumstances smoother with good elections.

The Chinese metaphysical astrological system also uses direction in elections. There is a method of this in the west. It is looking at the locality directions of the chart. You have certain directions that are associated with Planet lines, and can invoke those by going in those directions from your home, or business, or sitting in those directions.

As you can see, Astrology has a huge amount to offer for one who has the time and willingness to experiment.

Using Astrology for Medical Elections.

I would like to continue the theme of Astrology as incorporating the fourth dimension of timing to insure success in endeavors. One of the classical arts that was lost to the west was the use of astrology in determining when to see a doctor. Why is it that some healthy people have surgeries and everything goes wrong. Why is it that some sick people have surgeries and everything goes right. It is the art of timing that helps contribute to these differences. Astrological elections can be a determining factor in whether a medical procedure is successful or not.
It was even believed, and is worth contemplating and even researching if one had the time and funding, that even when you first go and see a doctor about an illness makes a difference in how well you will be cured, or whether the root of the disease can be addressed or will be addressed.

My mother, a very sweet yet fragile woman, was to have spinal reconstruction surgery. I looked at her chart and fortified Saturn, which rules the bones, made sure the Moon and the Ascendant were not afflicted, the rulers of her spirit and body. The doctors were a little upset but we came up with a good day. The result was the surgeon said it was the most successful spinal reconstruction surgery he had ever done.

In Surgeries one should always avoid the ascendant, or moon being afflicted by Mars. for example Cardano says : “It will be a fatal time to suffer an amputation or lose any member when the moon is in an oblique sign or under the Suns beams and opposed by Mars.” Here we see a strict admonition to avoid certain kinds of surgeries when astrology is engaged in certain aspects. It is a clear statement to watch the afflictions of Mars during a surgery. The moon rules liquid and Mars rules blood. The two square or opposed indicate injury and harm through excessive bleeding. Very simple then. Never go under the knife when Mars and Moon are square or opposed. That is my electional advice to you today, and it may save your life.

If you do have a major medical operation coming, you must consult a good astrologer to pick the date, give your doctors that extra edge. I insist, start using astrology to your benefit, in this way. Astrology is not just about whether you feel good today or why you don’t feel good, it is a very powerful tool that can greatly enhance your life.

Electional Astrology

Their are 3 main branches of Astrology. These three are Natal, Horary, and Electional. Most people are familiar with Natal readings. This is where an astrologer looks at a chart for the time and place where you were born and can then tell you about your psychology, your spirituality, future likely life events, good and bad habits that you might have etc. Of course this is very useful. Horary astrology is also something a good deal of people are interested in. This is when an astrologer looks at a chart for the moment a question is asked, and from that can determine, not only the answer to the question, but also the details of the story surrounding the question. This is also very useful.

There is a third type of astrology called Electional astrology. Electional astrology is based upon this idea.”The forms of this composite world are obedient to the forms of heaven(Ptolomy, The Centiloquium)” or “All that is and becomes in this world, that is, by means of generation and corruption, is caused by the 120 conjunctions” (Ptolomy, The Centiloquium ). The meaning here is that the interdependence of form and experience on earth is indicated and ruled by the motion of the planets and stars.

This then becomes something that a wise person can use to the benefit of themselves and others. A good astrologer can determine when to start a project in accordance with the stars and planets, thus maximizing the  chance of the desired outcome for the project. This is a profound thing to think about. Here we have a fourth dimension to our activities. The dimension of timing insuring the capacity and durability of things. It is only the art of astrology which can help accurately give one an advantage in the art of timing. This is the advantage of elections. Learn about them. Use them. You will thank me in the future.
