This is an example of what a horary chart is and can do.  In the example, a question is asked.  The author shows how the chart can be read by casting a chart on the "birth of the question".  This allows you to read not only the present situation, but also what happened before and in the future.  Locate missing objects.  Answer questions.  Get advice.  Identify the thief.  Who called you?  What did they want?  When is it safe to travel or should you?  These are questions you ask also when you're seeking guidance from a higher source.  The power of this type of astrology is why Hitler rounded up all the astrologers and then kept the best one for himself.  However, when he was told he'd lose the war, he was not happy!  Many believe Ronald Reagan avoided assassination because Nancy always timed his personal appearances.
