Arrival of Letter

Analysis of the Horary Question:

"When Will My Letter of Recommendation Arrive?"

This week we take a break from Electional Astrology, Astrological Magic and Astrological Talismans and turn to traditional Horary Astrology. Horary astrology begins with the time of the birth of a question, rather than the birth of a person and judges the answer to the question from a chart of the time of its asking.
In this question the querent (person asking the question) asked, "When Will My Letter of Recommendation Arrive?" I received and understood the question on 5:50 pm, February 15, 2002 in Washington, D.C. 38 N 55 77 W 03
In this chart 28 degrees of Leo rises and it is Mars hour. As Mars and the ruler of Leo the Sun are both hot and dry the chart is radical and has indications of accuracy.

The Ascendant is conjunct the fixed star Alphard of the nature of Saturn and Venus giving much trouble and anxiety. Robson, Fixed Stars, page 130.
The Ascendant is also conjunct the fixed star Al Jabhah of the nature of Saturn and Mercury giving loss, many dangers and a violent and intemperate nature. Robson, Fixed Stars, page 128.
The Ascendant is also late, indicating that the situation is in its late stages and that there is little the querent can do to alter it.
The ruler of the Ascendant and significator of the querent is the Sun. The Sun is in detriment and conjunct the 7th house cusp. The co-significator of the querent is the Moon, who is peregrine in the malefic 8th house.
The English astrologer William Lilly gives rules for messages and messengers that we can use in the current situation. He says, "..behold the lord of the ascendant and the Moon and if either be in the 7th or apply to the lord of the 7th [the message] went safe on his journey." Christian Astrology, page 237. In this case, the lord of the 1st, the Sun, is conjunct the 7th house cusp and applying to a square of Saturn, ruler of the 7th. Thus your message got through.
To see if the messenger returns, in this case, if the person giving the reference finishes it and sends it back to you, look to see if the lord of the 5th (here Saturn in Gemini) applies to his dispositor. Here Mercury does apply to Saturn, and Saturn is disposed by Mercury. They are 6.7 degrees apart, which in this circumstance looks like the reference gets the recommendation to you in around 7 days. That would just barely make the querent's deadline.


The querent reported by e-mail that the recomendation arrived just in time on the day predicted.
