Electional Astrology is the artful technique of finding the most auspicious date and time to begin an important event such as launching a business or new product, selling or buying a home, or getting married, just to name a few.
If you are planning to launch a significant event between now and the end of the 2010, you are going to encounter a few major hurdles! One of the first rules for creating the birth of an event is to avoid Mercury and Venus retrograde.
Venus began 6 weeks of retrograde motion today on October 8th and will return direct on November 18th (at 11:53 AM EST). Mercury will turn retrograde on December 10th until December 30th, 2010. That leaves a small window of time between November 19th and December 9th to initiate any major projects or events in 2010. A 20-day period of direct motion. However within that timeframe, there are important electional rules to consider! Yesterday on October 7th I wanted to take advantage of the New Moon in Libra (starting at 2:45 PM EDT) to launch a new mp3 lecture on Electional Astrology and Event Planning…however Venus was turning retrograde a mere 12 hours later on October 8th (at 3:05 AM EDT)! I was ready to launch my new product and the thought of waiting until November 19th did not thrill me.
So I decided to go for it and find the best possible time to make it happen on October 7th AFTER the New Moon but BEFORE Venus turned retrograde…AND respecting the rules of electional astrology!
Not an easy task, but doable. Below is the event chart I chose to launch my new lecture on electional astrology and event planning. But why did I choose this particular time?
