Waiting for the Right Time

I just got my postage stamp and stuck it on the envelope containing an application. I am waiting beside the outgoing mailbox.Read More »


Will There be Paying Customers From Now Until My Date Arrives?

I think of paying customers as Lord 8 – money from customers. It’s Mercury in this case. I’m represented by Lord 1, Saturn. There’s no aspects formed between Mercury and Saturn nor their antiscia. Okay, there won’t be paying customers. Read More »

Is It Advisable to Take Up a Stall in a Fair?

It costs about €220 to take up a spot in a psychic fair for a day. Maureen was thinking whether to do so as quite a bit of money is involved although it would be great for marketing. She called me and posed the question to me.

I looked the bottom panel in the Solar Fire software programme. Moon in Aquarius in 29 degrees. There were no other planets beyond 28 degrees. Grasps. Void of course. Nothing will come out of it.

I told Maureen that it might not be a good idea as of now, based on her current and past actions done up to now. Maybe when she feels that her circumstances have changed, she could revisit the idea.


Will I Make Money Today?

The Question

Suzie runs a retail shop. She’s debating whether to go in to work today, Sunday. She will need to spend 3.5 hours in total on commuting to the shop and there’s the cost of transport to consider too.

The Advice

No. It’s advised that she stays at home as it’s unlikely that she will make money today.

Update Today, Suppertime

Suzie has chosen to ignore my advice. She had no customers today.

The Analysis

Ascendant is 4 degrees. Not too early. Moon sits on the 3rd house cusp, suggesting that she’s thinking of the commute to the store. Interestingly, south node sits on the 3rd house as well, suggesting that the routine travel to work isn’t the most beneficial for her.

Saturn is in the 1st house. It rules the 2nd and 3rd – money, and work where she works and routine travels. Saturn is not dignified so it’s malefic. Suzie’s facing some limitation in terms of money, travelling and her workplace.

Now, revenue for Suzie has to come from clients. Do we consider the ruler of the 7th and/or the 8th (client’s money). Since the money has to come from clients, surely it makes sense to look at the 7th house? Lord 7 is Mercury which is in combustion. The clients which will generate money for Suzie is being burned. They can’t be seen in the public or at the store (Mercury conjunct 10th). Also, fixed star Alycone is near the Descendant. There’s regret regarding Suzie’s clients. Things will not work out well.

Perhaps, there’s no need to look at Lord 8 given the state of the 7th. But let’s have a look anyway. Lord 8 is Moon. It is making applying aspects to Saturn in 1st, Uranus on 5th and then finally Jupiter on 11th (Lord 1). Suzie’s client monies i.e. Lord 8 is prevented from coming into contact with Suzie. There’s just too much things going on – there’s delay or difficulty relating to the client’s money, followed by an unexpected/sudden something to the money before it finally arrives in Suzie’s pockets. BUT, from the preceding paragraph, it’s clear that Suzie’s customers most probably won’t show up on her doorstep.

So, no. It’s better for Suzie to stay at home.




Can I Make a Living From My Knowledge in …?

This was one of the first few questions that I practised on using horary astrology. The equal house system is used as the chart was cast when I had extremely limited knowledge of horary astrology then (and now too). In addition, at the time of the reading, I didn’t realise that a planet that’s within 5 degrees of the next house cusp belongs to the following house. I stuck to my original interpretation as it’s the universe’s way of talking to me at that point in time.

The Situation

Ascendent is in the late degree – it’s too late to be asking this question. The person (querent) might have already embarked on a course relating to the knowledge.

Is the Knowledge Profitable?

The profit from the knowledge is represented by the 10th house and its ruler – Venus. There’s no planets in the 10th house. Venus is exalted so there can be quite a lot of profit from the knowledge. Venus is in retrograde, suggesting to me (although others may disagree) that the profits “returns” or goes to the querent.

Is there a connection (aspect) between the querent (Sun) and the profit from the knowledge (Venus)? No, there’s none.

Is there a connection (aspect) between the querent’s knowlege (Mars) and the profit from the knowledge (Venus)? No, there’s none. It’s interesting that Mars is in the sign of Taurus, which makes it debilitated. This indicates that the querent’s knowledge is weak and perhaps rudimentary.

What About the Client’s Money?

The customers’ money is represented by the 8th house – there’s the Sun in the 8th, suggesting that customers “burn” their money. This is good news! I don’t know exactly what to make of Uranus if it is used except that their money can come and go unexpectedly, suggesting irregular income streams. Although Uranus is in combusion of the Sun, perhaps diminishing the effect of Uranus’s unpredictable nature. The ruler of the 8th is Jupiter in 17 degrees Libra. Jupiter is in the term, so the amount of the customers’ money is so-so. Jupiter being retrograde in the querent’s 2nd house suggests that the customers money will come to the querent’s own pockets. Not a bad thing!

There’s no aspect between Jupiter, Lord 8 and and Venus, Lord 10, suggesting a connection between the customers’ money and the profits from the knowledge. There’s no aspect between Lord 8 and Mars, Lord 9, suggesting a connection between the customers’ money and the querent’s knowledge.

The Querent

Can the querent take advantage of any monetary opportunities from his knowledge? Yes! The Sun, which represents him, is exalted in Aries. The north node is very close to the Ascendent, possibly suggesting that he is enhanced by the nature of the question – making a living from the knowledge. Hmmm, could the south node in the 7th/conjunct the 7th suggest that the querent’s customers are weakened from the querenent’s limited knowledge (Lord 9 – Mars in Taurus is debilitated).


Yes, the querent can make a living from his limited knowledge. Indeed, there’s the potential for huge profits. However, his customers might have limited money. So, maybe, he could explore other areas to use his knowledge to make profits, for example books, writing, teaching which are 3rd house matters and ruled by Venus which is exalted.
