In the previous two articles (Planetary Hours, Parts One and Two), I described how the ancients divided the time between sunrise and sunset into 12 equal parts, and then divided the time between sunset and sunrise into another 12 equal parts. These early astrologers correlated each of these parts of the day with the seven known moving bodies in the sky. They observed and organized a pattern based on the apparent speed of these bodies, namely Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Moon. They repeated the sequence three times for the seven moving bodies as they named the Planetary Hours, taking the next three planets from the fourth sequence to complete the 24 parts necessary for the day. Unfortunately, these 24 parts of the day, which vary in length from day to day and from week to week, are all called "hours" although they seldom are actually 60 minutes in duration. Each 24-hour sequence ended at sunrise, when a new day began. Examples were presented of the daily patterns for the equinoxes and the solstices. A specific example of Planetary Hours was given for New York City. The second article ended with a promise to show how Planetary Hours could be used every day to improve your life.

The clue to using Planetary Hours effectively lies in the very nature of the planet associated with the Hour. Imagine that you have a listing of the Planetary Hours for your particular location. You also have a list of items that you want to accomplish, and the flexibility to schedule as you see fit. Consider the nature of each item you must attend to, and consider the nature of each Planetary Hour. The following is from my personal experience and from reports of my clients, students, friends, and family. This should serve as a guide to the use of the various Planetary Hours.

Saturn Hour

You know the restrictive and delaying nature of Saturn. If you start a trip during a Saturn Hour, you are sure to find delays along the way. Projects started during a Saturn Hour will carry with them the nature and characteristics of Saturn. The Saturn Hour is quite intriguing because some of the negative aspects of Saturn can be turned to your advantage. Begin the construction of a building during a Saturn Hour, and the building will last for centuries. A realtor in Massachusetts arranges for all closings and contract signings to occur during Saturn Hours because Saturn is associated with real estate. She feels that, because of the enduring nature of Saturn, her real estate clients are less likely to change their minds. In matters other than real estate, it is not a good idea to sign contracts during a Saturn Hour.

Jupiter Hour

You know the expansive, cheerful, benevolent nature of Jupiter. Any project started during a Jupiter Hour will carry with it the expansive, cheerful, benevolent nature of Jupiter. Make your arrangements for travel during a Jupiter Hour. Use the Jupiter Hour to call your travel agent or your airline. Begin your trip during a Jupiter Hour, and you will probably be surprised to find no traffic where you expect it. Here in California, the freeways seem comparatively empty for trips started during a Jupiter Hour. The Jupiter Hour has an affinity for financial success. Wake up and start your day during a Jupiter Hour, if you can, and enjoy the spirit of Jupiter all day.

Mars Hour

You know the fiery, energetic nature of Mars. Think about it. The Mars nature describes the Mars Hour. Do not telephone people with whom you might argue, unless it is your plan to start a fight or you are willing to risk that the other party will start a fight. Wait for the next Planetary Hour. Or place the call earlier, during the Jupiter Hour. If you can arrange it, avoid the Mars Hour for starting a trip. Observe how aggressively people drive their cars during a Mars Hour. Observe how many accidents you witness during the Mars Hour. See if awakening during a Mars Hour makes you more energetic all day ... or more contentious.

Sun Hour

The benevolent nature of the Sun makes the Sun Hour good for most activities. Ask any Leo who knows about Planetary Hours. He or she will tell you that, if a meeting is called for at a Sun Hour, he or she feels in charge. The Sun Hour is generally good for most people. Start social events, if possible, during a Sun Hour. Latecomers will arrive during a Venus Hour, which is also very good. If you are uncertain about the start of another person's action, such as the return of your phone call, call the person during a Sun Hour. This way, you will probably hear from him during Sun, Venus, Mercury, or Moon Hours. The return call will be beneficial to both of you.

Four of the seven Planetary Hours have been described above, and you can start to observe their influence. I have not addressed the Venus, Mercury, and Moon Hours in this article. These remaining Planetary Hours, along with anecdotal experiences, will be presented in Part Four of this series.
