Summary and Final Test

The example horary we have just considered was by no means 'fun' or trivial. Like all good horary charts it offers clear and direct symbolism, reflecting its relevancy on many levels because the issue underlying the question was a matter of deep concern. The question was not contrived but unfolded itself to scrutiny at a moment when the querent felt compelled to admit her need for guidance. It is to some extent a curiosity because my judgement had no impact. To my recollection, this is the only chart I have cast where the querent later decided not to know what the chart has to say. I sometimes wonder whether I was right or wrong in not persuading the querent to hear the details, and I still don't know where I stand on that. Horary often involves us in ethical and moral minefields for which we must consider all implications and follow our conscience. This will form the basis of a future exploration but for now we'll leave that issue aside and draw the first part of this course to a close.

The course so far has introduced the approach and method of horary, mainly focussing upon the identification of significators, the need to centre the judgement upon the significators, and a detailed review of house meanings. It is hoped that you now have an adequate knowledge of house meanings to reason your significations effectively. The final test, below, gives you an opportunity to assess your knowledge of house signification and check that you are confident in what you have learned.
