It is so cool when astrology works so blatantly. The more you practice, the more often you will see it happen. I tend to apply the principles of predictive astrology to the other branches, especially horary. If you can see immediate proof of how aspects and planetary placements work out, it gives much creedence to your work.
It seems lost cat horarys are everywhere and give immediate results in Horary questions. A few years ago my cat Zelda became one of the missing. She is a very sweet dispositioned cat that anyone would love to pick up as a stray and keep. At the time there was a rash of the cat population being caught and taken to the local shelter. So, when she was missing for a few days I became nervous and asked a Horary.
Question: Where is Zelda?

I would be the lord of the first house. That would make me Mars. Zelda would be the lord of the 6th house making her also Mars. First thought before looking at the rest of the chart is that she and I are in the same space. In lost horarys, if the lords are the same, usually the item is right there on the person or very near by. I get a little nervous as the Moon is working toward a combust in the 8th house. The Moon (and the Sun that will fry her up) are in Gemini. Mars is in Virgo… Gemini and Virgo are ruled by Mercury (who in this chart is in rulership Gemini) Mars’s last aspect is from Mercury by minutes. Mars is received by Mercury. I am looking at Mercury and thinking it could represent hearing from Zelda…. no that is just weird. So the chart suggests that I have been sitting here ontop of the cat for a half hour or so???? Yes, in an exagerated gesture I throw my arms up and look under the chair and Zelda mews at me and blinks.
