CHOOSING A CHART
Electional Charts are charts you choose say for a wedding or a new business. What is the best date and time? It's very unlikely that you'd want to start a business when Saturn is in the second house, as that indicates difficulty earning money!
Some positions and aspects with outer planets may not change for many years. Some of the inner planet aspects can change from one day to the next, and lunar aspects last typically about eight hours. The ascendant changes on an average of every two hours (on a rather uneven cycle, depending on your latitude!) and along different points on the same wheel all the planets change houses as often. When you create a new enterprise you want to pick the best possible horoscope out of this mad, kaleidescopic variety.
Different businesses have different needs, of course. Cancer rising makes for good food and hominess. This would be great for a restaurant or a day-care center, but not for a travel agency. Some businesses would actually want a Mercury retrograde, but mostly you'd rather avoid that.
There are often long term situations that can't be avoided. They may be helpful or a hindrance, but the planets involved do change houses on an average of every two hours so we can put difficult planets where they won't cause so much problem. If you can't wait two-and-a-half years for Saturn to change signs, at least we can find a time of day that puts it into a more advantageous house.
To get the planets where you want them you may have to open your business at a very odd hour. You could have an opening party or arrange to open your doors for a pre-arranged transaction, even if only for a few minutes, even if it is several days before you actually start regular business hours. Disrupting one night could save you a lot of disruption down the road!
