The 12 Double - Hours
The Double - Hours represent a persons
outer appearance, the direct exchange with the environment around them.
23 - 01 = The Hour of the Rat
Pretty straight characters who prefer
to have a lot of lose friends around them. Nevertheless, they make a selection
because name and status of the people they know should have a good sound
to it. They have the tendency to struck their nose into everybody elses
business and can be very annoying with that attitude. Their charming and
self a sure behavior should not fool anyone because under pressure they
can crack or show at least a malicious narrow minded and impassioned reaction.
01 - 03 = The Hour of the Bull
Not exactly flexible in their opinions
but otherwise rather friendly or even cheerful. They see live from a realistic
point of view and keep up a healthy balance between work and leisure time.
They commonly think first carefully before they act. Both sexes are quite
sensual, that shows specially in their leisure time.
03 - 05 = The Hour of the Tiger
Very impressive appearance, very self
a sure, very dynamic. Some people get scared already seeing them from a
distance.. But its partly a disguise, they are quite soft cats underneath,
which shows as soon as someone gets intimate with them. Nevertheless, they
have that instant instinct that makes them always completely aware of where
they are and what is going on around them, so they hardly ever feel lost.
05 - 07 = The Hour of the Cat
Very emotional package that needs to act
it all out. However, they are at the sane time quite shy, so they disguise
or completely hide their true feelings. Some are victims of their ever
changing moods, some others found a balance in dedicating them selfs to
help others. Nevertheless, they like to have a couple of good friends who
can cheer them up. A natural lifestyle suits them most.
07 - 09 = The Hour of the Dragon
To impress people with their unique personality
seems to be the most favorite hobby from the whole lot of hobbies they
have. They simply want to be special, never mind how much they like people.
Some of them try to avoid getting involved in love affairs just because
they could lose their own holy personality in it.
09 - 11 = The Hour of the Snake
Outsiders feel first the tension inside
of them. If they didn't have such a good self control they would probably
go up the wall every 5 minutes or so. They don't display what's going on
inside of them, except perhaps to some real real close person. Other than
someone like that they don't bother much about friendships at all.
11 - 13 = The Hour of the Horse
They try to show always a friendly, pleasant
face and find it easy to make spontaneous contact with people. Natural
as they are they can be the typical pioneers who are always ready to do
some action rather than to sit inside a office. Often they simply over
estimate their abilities. When they realize that they are quickly off to
something else. In general they are well liked by most people and have
very often fortune on their side.
13 - 15 = The Hour of the Goat
They need a bit of time to sort their
live out, but once they got there they know how to get the good jobs, the
right income or even the right partners quite well, without making to many
headlines about it. Their talent is to instinctively feel what kind of
theater they have to play in a particular situation or around particular
people. Besides of their loyal daily commitments they manage to have somewhere
a cloud of dreams where they can escape to.
15 - 17 = The Hour of the Monkey
Able, clever and full of action, they
are all ideas. However, it is all just on the surface, it is all basically
a show. But it is a funky show, so people like it. They seem to be able
to just pull a switch and -Bumm- they have a completely new identity. Just
for a couple of hours of course. That playful and optimistic nature will
keep them young at heart.
17 - 19 = The Hour of the Rooster
They don't care. That is actually really
their attitude. All though kind, active and just, first comes what they
want, what they need. Still, they have a very own appeal to others and
can find a happy life with their charm. On the other hand they can be real
narrow minded and picking. They are commonly very proud, like to be in
command but can as well be idle and cold-hearted.
19 - 21 = The Hour of the Dog
They are made to adapt to any situation,
particularly to their partners. They like to be helpful and are always
around in their silent ways. Their sensuality is silent too, but nevertheless
there. Often people start to realize what they actually had on them after
they are gone.
21 - 23 = The Hour of the Pig
Tender ouls. Cover their soft inside with
a rough behavior. Since they are afraid to lose them selfs in the flame
of love they shy away from people they could fall in love with. However,
they are very intelligent. Still, it is possible to abuse them because
they like to be helpful. Not all of them are self a sure they may need
a strong partner on their side.
Notice: To establish your
birth time correctly you have to use your actual local time, as
you may have learned in the western Astrology sector of this book.
If your present place of living is a long
way off your birthplace, you may have to adjust the double hour according
to the degrees of longitudes you life away from your birthplace. For every
degree you have to add 4 minutes (if your present place is east of your
birthplace), or subtract (when your present place is west of your birthplace).
Once you reached the longitude on which the next double hour begins you
can make that longitude to your personal prime meridian! Every further
30 degrees from there on a new double hour starts for you, all around the
For instance: Born around 01h 30m, in
central europe, you are born in the hour of the Ox. If you move to the
middle east you cross somewhere between Greece and Turkey your personal
prime meridian and you come there into the Tiger hour. Would you travel
much further east, you would end up perhaps in the hour of the Horse, somewhere
in Australia, or if you would travel west from central europe, to western
europe, you would come into the hour of the Rat, and so on. To be aware
of this may be very important because live may be better on a other place
than the present one - or worst, of course.
If you have done the calculation for a
complete Horoscope already and you know your MC, you can adjust the different
double hours also in your house system. If we take the example from before,
01h 30m as birth time and say 14º Z as MC, on 9º 10' eastern
longitude, we have to extract 30m ( 30:4 = 7º 30' minus), that's now
an MC on 6º 30' Z and 1º40' eastern longitude as a personal prime
meridian (from the Ox - to the Rat - hour here). On 31º 40' east is
therefore the next personal prime meridian, there from the Ox - to the
Tiger - hour, and so on every 30 degrees around the entire globe.
