In the preceding three articles, I described the origin of Planetary Hours and the method of their calculation. Specific examples of the duration of these Hours at various times of the year were also presented. Insights to the interpretation of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, and Sun Hours were also given. In this, the final article of the series, I shall cover the remaining three Planetary Hours (Venus, Mercury, and Moon) and I shall describe how I use all seven Planetary Hours in my personal and professional life.

Venus Hour

As I stated earlier in this series, the clue to the use of any specific Planetary Hour lies in the nature of the planet itself. You know the nature of Venus. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, harmony, and all things peaceful. Everything goes better in a Venus Hour .... unless the transiting Venus is in retrograde motion. Venus Hours are excellent for all loving encounters, for asking a favor, for starting a trip, for starting a creative project (painting, gardening, sewing), and for beauty parlor appointments. Try to schedule your next wedding for a Venus Hour.

When transiting Venus is Retrograde or heavily afflicted in the sky, watch out! Do not count on the beneficence of Venus at those times. The Venus Hour will carry the negatives associated with the transiting Venus.

Mercury Hour

Mercury is the planet of communication. Unless transiting Mercury is in retrograde motion, you can use Mercury Hours to initiate all forms of communication, such as correspondence, telephoning, writing, short trips, teaching classes, and dealing with children.

When transiting Mercury is Retrograde or heavily afflicted in the sky, beware of using Mercury Hours. Do not count on the benign attributes of Mercury at those times. The Mercury Hour will carry the negatives associated with the transiting Mercury. If transiting Mercury is Retrograde, then all of the Mercury activities described above are jeopardized anyway, and you should not be starting them at this time.

Moon Hour

Check to see if the Moon is Void of Course or afflicted in the sky before you try to successfully use a Moon Hour. If the transiting Moon is in good condition, then the positive characteristics of the Moon can translate into the Moon Hour. The Moon Hour is good for all public affairs, for dealing with women, the public, or your mother. Think of the Moon, the sign Cancer, and the fourth house characteristics of the Moon Hour. Home affairs, family matters, and cooking are well attended to during Moon Hours. If the Moon is Void of Course, do not expect a Moon Hour to work for you.

How do I personally use the Planetary Hours? I have some flexibility in the time I get out of bed, so I try to avoid setting my alarm clock to awaken me during a Saturn Hour. I will choose to get up earlier, and greet the day during a Moon Hour. (Actually, I would prefer to get up later.) I carefully plan to start all major trips during a Venus or Jupiter Hour, even if it means leaving home earlier than necessary. When scheduling appointments with clients, I try to avoid beginning during a Mars or Saturn Hour. I avoid shopping during a Saturn Hour, because I have found that when I leave home during a Saturn Hour, I find it difficult to locate a parking spot, and find it equally as difficult to locate the items I am seeking.

Recently, I have been discovering that certain clients, who work in a structured business environment, report that a certain day of the week has recently been difficult for them. They are due at work at a specific time, and their alarm clocks are set for the same time every day. I look for the Planetary Hour during which they arise on that troublesome day of the week, and suggest that they arise at a different time. With seasonal variations, and the advent of daylight?saving time, any inconvenience of a change will be temporary.

Once I became interested in Planetary Hours, I started collecting anecdotes from colleagues, friends, and clients about their experiences. One friend told me that if he goes to sleep during a Venus or Jupiter Hour, he has wonderful dreams. His experience is not so pleasant if he goes to sleep during a Mars or Saturn Hour. Another person has told me that if he is telephoning someone and gets a busy signal, he keeps getting the busy signal until the Planetary Hour changes ... and then the line is clear. Try it.

I have been advised by one friend that if she awakens during a Moon Hour, she finds herself eating all day. There is a lady in San Diego who has told me that if she orders a pizza during a Jupiter Hour, it is delivered with far more pepperoni than she expected; if she orders during a Saturn Hour, it arrives with far less pepperoni; if she orders during a Mars Hour, the pizza is over?baked and dry. She is always satisfied if she orders her pizza during a Venus or Moon Hour. My advice? Be forewarned!

Planetary Hours is an astrological tool which should no longer be ignored or cast aside as too cumbersome or too difficult to use in day?to?day applications. Try them. Use them. I am sure that the proper use of Planetary Hours will enhance your life.
