Electional Astrology [Astro*Index]

A major branch of Astrology in the Middle Ages and ancient times, which sought to "elect" (i.e., choose) a suitable time at which to begin some endeavor: a marriage, business, building, journey, etc. In practice, one computes a chart for some possible time and place, and evaluates the prognosis. Then, by selecting other times, before or after, an attempt is made to choose a time with the most benefic, or fewest malefic, influences.
