In the context of natal astrology, each of us is born during a particular "planetary hour," which can offer important information in delineating the birth chart. In electional astrology, planetary hours can assist in finding a favorable time to engage in a particular type of activity. In predictive astrology, the Persians made use of planetary hours as "lord of the orb" when interpreting the annual solar return for individuals. In horary astrology, we pay special attention to the planetary hour of the moment the chart is cast to help determine whether it is "radical" and able to give a proper answer to our question. To quote from my most recent book, Horary Astrology: The Theory and ...

Samhain can be celebrated on the calendar date of October 31 or when the Sun is at the 15th degree of Scorpio on November 6. Or it can be celebrated on both days depending upon your ritual needs. All of the sabbats can be celebrated over the course of several days, but the cross-quarter sabbats have a longer period of influence, especially Samhain. So many people work their magic on or near October 31 that the powers are summoned, the spirits are stirred, and the veils are parted, but the qualities associated with Samhain continue to rise until November 6. It is easier to access subtle energies and open the way between the worlds on all the sabbats, but at Samhain this is felt more ...
