Electional Astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with the selection of specific days to engage in any particular type of activity. Astrologers believe that there are good days and bad days to do anything. This belief is based on an idea that originated from the ancient Hebrew prophets. They believed that when a man and woman were married using a specific set of rituals, then the couple was reborn together in a new form, and the astrological chart of the wedding date becomes the chart of the marriage (called the MARRIAGE CHART or WEDDING CHART). Their lives were then as dependent on the Marriage Chart as their own birth charts. This idea was conceived as early as 4,000 years ago, but became most important when the Hebrews began to anoint kings (since the same theory applied to this act).
From the days of Abraham until about the birth of David, the Hebrews did not have kings. Instead, they were led by men of high moral stature, those whom the Hebrews believed had direct access to their Lord. Moses, Joshua, and other early famous leaders of the Israelites were never kings. The last group of such leaders of the Hebrews are referred to as the judges, all of whom were regarded as prophets. Samuel was the last of the judges, and it was he who anointed Saul as the first king of Israel, and also David as Saul's successor.
We already explained that we are certain that Samuel was a great astrologer. Samuel believed in the importance of choosing the most favorable days for weddings such that the newlyweds would be reborn with the most favorable astrological charts. So when he had to crown the first king of Israel, it was natural that Samuel did it on a very favorable day, and also did it in a way so that the king would be reborn with a new astrological chart-and one that was a great one.
This idea of rebirth and new charts defies logic, but it works when it is done right. To the Hebrews, the key to the rebirth process of the coronation is the invocation of God and the anointing of the head with holy oil. This tradition was regarded as so sacred that every single monarch of England has been crowned in this way. Modern historians agree that such a coronation ritual is meant to represent that the individual symbolically dies to be reborn again in a new form. What the historians do not usually realize is that this all originated from astrological beliefs held by ancient Hebrew prophets.
The criteria used by the Hebrew prophets to evaluate if a day was good or bad had to do with the planetary aspects of the day. They were correct about this. By analyzing the planetary aspects of a day, you can tell if a day is a good one to get married or be crowned king or queen. But the usefulness of Electional Astrology has grown far beyond such limited types of events. Nowadays, astrologers correctly believe that the theories of Electional Astrology can be applied to any activity. There are good days and bad days to do absolutely anything and everything, and it all depends on the Planetary Geometry of the day. There are good and bad days to look for a job, start a new job, make love, negotiate a contract, open a bank account, make a speech, have a medical procedure performed, begin a medication, buy a house, pay off a loan, go on a blind date, start a romance, take a trip, and so on.
We just explained that when there are Seduction Aspects or Sexual Aspects, it is a good time to make love. We are not saying that you should not make love unless such aspects exist. However, if your love sessions have been normally good, then if you do make love during any of those types of aspects, the results will be fabulous.
All of this is important, but where knowledge of Electional Astrology becomes most crucial is when we engage in any activity for the first time. At that time, the Planetary Geometry that exists when we first do something becomes the birth chart of that type of activity for the rest of our lives. Such is the case with the coronation of a monarch. Also, when we get married, the planetary aspects and geometry of the day we are wed becomes the astrological chart of our marriage, and therefore becomes the Marriage Chart.
What is the rationale behind the idea of a Marriage Chart? We have all felt days when there is a smooth and vibrant energy in the air and everything goes right. Astrologers believe that such days are good days to begin things because by commencing something new on such a day, you capture and preserve whatever energy the day has that makes it so wonderful. This energy that a day has is dependent upon the alignm ent of the planets and the Planetary Geometry of that day.
Have you ever wished you could preserve a feeling or moment? You can. In this book, you will learn how to select and preserve the energy of such days. In so doing, you can actually harness the powers of the planets and use them to your advantage. This is one of the keys to success in love and money.
Electional Astrology teaches us that there are some days that are good to do certain things, and there are days that are not good to engage in a certain type of activity. The Old Testament even talks about this: "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven ... A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace" (Ecclesiastes 3,1 and 3,8).
And the stars will give us signs to tell us when the best time is to do anything.
