  • Men at some time are masters of their fates the
    fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in
    ourselves, that we are underlings. Cassius, scene

Questions to be answered to Cast a horoscope
  • What date and time is it and where is it?
  • What is the sun sign?
  • Where is the sun along the ecliptic, what
    zodiacal constellation is it in? This depends
    mainly on the date unless it is near the cusp
    division between, zodiacal constellations. The
    answer to this question depends upon weather you
    are using tropical or Jyotisha (sidereal) or IAU
    (International Astronomical Union)
    constellations.

13
Now adding more detail
  • Use where and when you now determine which
    zodiacal constellations are on the meridian
    (midheaven) and coming up (ascendant) and going
    down (descendent)
  • So now you have 4 zodiacal constellations.
  • You now have the following signs Sun, Ascendant,
    Midheaven, and Descendant

14
Now add planets and the moon
  • Particularly if those planets or the moon are
    above the horizon.
  • Each planet and the moon are also in a particular
    zodiacal constellation
  • If a comet or alignment or occultation is going
    on you can add more. This too occurs in some
    constellation somewhere.

15
So far you have only done positional astronomy
  • Now you have to interpret these things for your
    client who feels a sense of authority since these
    things are celestial and over their head.
  • Here you either use some stuff written in some
    old musty book or make up your own stuff like the
    original musty book writer did.
  • The latter method is fraudulent the former
    method is foolish, unless the musty book writer
    explains how the correlation was arrived at.
    Seen any data?
  • Now you see why I stop at the positional
    astronomy! Not wanting to be a fraud or a fool.
