The bold horizontal line in this chart (see left) represents the horizon. More specifically, it serves to show the portion of the sky that may be seen to rise (AC, Ascendant in the east) and the portion that may be seen to set (DC, Descendant in the west). As the Sun sets here in Gurgaon, Haryana, India, there will be a brief few moments during which the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are all above the horizon. I will begin a prayer at 7:45 pm in accordance with this celestial arrangement.
Unfortunately, these six of a total of seven classical celestial bodies will probably be obscured by the terrain of most places on Earth. However, thanks to the modern astrological process, one is able to track down the exact moment at which this phenomenon will occur.
From the point of view of the low-technology sky watcher, a flat terrain with very little light pollution would be necessary to view the Sun’s light reflected from these six planets at once. While the perfect stargazing environment does not always present itself, it is still crucial, in my view, to approach astrology from an observational, experiential perspective. Given optimal circumstances, this planetary extroversion would be a delight to the naked eye. I have depicted the symbolism in the brief sample of music below.
