A horary chart is a map of the mental factors active in the mind of the querent at the time and place a question is asked. This branch of astrology is used to discern the nature of the past, present, and future of the matter inquired about. This book is suitable for beginning, intermediate and advanced students of astrology. It provides a complete treatise on Horary and Electional astrology, in addition to providing the basic technical aspects of chart delineation.
The first two chapters provide the beginning or intermediate student with all the important concepts for interpreting any horoscope: natal or horary, and are required reading for the more advanced courses in natal astrology. Chapters three through five teach the student how to interpret a horary chart erected to answer a particular question posed by the querent. Chapter six covers Electional astrology and teaches the student how to select the best time for any undertaking. The final two chapters cover the technical aspects of calculating a horoscope and constructing an astrological chart.

C. C. Zain is the pen name used by Elbert Benjamine (1882-1951), the noted astrologer, naturalist and occultist, for those writings done under the auspices of The Brotherhood of Light during the years 1914 - 1934. This body of knowledge has become known as The Brotherhood of Light Lessons.
Elbert Benjamine was one of the most prolific astrological writers of the 20th century. In addition to the twenty-three volumes of the Brotherhood of Light series published under the penname C. C. Zain, Benjamine also wrote over fifty books and hundreds of magazine articles. A scholar who mastered every physical science of his time, Benjamine brought the same vigor to his exploration of the metaphysical sciences. Like the writings of Bailey, Blavatsky, Steiner, and Heindl, the works of C. C. Zain (Elbert Benjamine) have impacted the lives of thousands of students of Western Occultism.
Elbert Benjamine was born Benjamin P. Williams in the small town of Adel, Iowa, December 12, 1882. He was a natural psychic and seer. In his youth, his heightened awareness brought him into contact with those who had passed from this plane to the next. In the autumn of 1898, he began his esoteric studies. By 1900 he had contacted The Brotherhood of Light and began serious study of astrology. His father was a doctor and deacon in the Disciples of Christ church in Iowa, where the community strongly disapproved of any interest in astrology and the occult. For this reason, upon moving to Los Angeles, he changed his name to Elbert Benjamine in order to protect his family. In the spring of 1910 he gave his promise to write the Twenty-One Brotherhood of Light Courses covering astrology, alchemy and magic, under the penname of C. C. Zain. From that time until his death in 1951, he devoted his life’s energy and personal resources to writing the lessons, and to establishing The Church of Light as a vehicle for disseminating The Brotherhood of Light teachings.
