What is Electional Astrology?

Electional astrology, also known as katarchic or inceptional astrology, is the adaptation of horoscopic astrology which is used in order to determine the best time for initiating new ventures and undertakings.

The premise is that anything born or initiated at a specific moment in time has a birth chart, and this birth chart reflects both the nature and future of the person or action which began at that specific moment in time.

If anything born or done at a specific moment in time has a birth chart, then by extension it should be possible to choose specific birth charts or planetary alignments in the future that would be better suited for the success or failure of any given undertaking or project. This is the basic premise underlying electional astrology.
