Hi, this is the electional chart to this blog. The purpose of this blog is to teach and discuss ideas about traditional astrology.
Most people think that astrology is just about sun-sign astrology. Nothing is more far from the truth. There are several branches and applications of astrology that most people never heard of.
One of this branches is “electional astrology”. Electional is a technique to choose the best moment to begin anything, like a marriage, a contract, a business partnership, or a blog.
The chart that you see above is the electional chart of the beginning of this blog. I will give you just some hightlights. The angles are in fixed signs to give durability.

The Ascendent (the point to the left of the map) is in 15 Scorpio, conjunt my natal North Node. My natal mercury is conjunt the electional north node.
Although the south node is in the MC (the highest point of the chart), I put the moon in the 9th house aspecting the ASC. She is in cancer, which is one of her dignities, meaning that the moon is very happy in cancer.
The sun is making a trine to the Part of Fortuna, which simbolizes “luck” in a chart. Jupiter is cadent, but is in the 10th house from Fortune.
Electionals are hard to judge: what are the astrological contribution vs the result that we would get anyway ? Nobody can know because we can´t live our lives twice. But hopefully this election will do, as I am not a very pacient person and I am not willing to wait two or three weeks to begin a blog 🙂
