An Interpretation of the Natal Chart of Bahá’u’lláh, IX

Díyáfat-i-Núr, the Feast of Light

In order to judge a nativity, it is necessary to sum it up as a whole; it should not be judged in its details, but must be taken in its entirety.

This is how we proceed to delineate a natal chart:

We first find the Almuten of the Ascendant. We ascertain the sign which it occupies, the house which it tenants, its conjunctions and aspects with any stars and planets. This we have already done in regard to the nativity or horoscope of Bahá’u’lláh.

We then proceed to determine the most favorable planet in the nativity (Anukúl), the least favorable planet in the nativity (Pratikúl), the giver of life (Hyleg), and the giver of death (Anareta). All this will provide a key by which it will be possible to obtain a synthetic idea of the native’s destiny.

It will afterwards be possible to study the horoscope in its details and to answer any questions which may be of special interest. This is, unfortunately, beyond the scope of this site.

We might, however, wish to contemplate the significance of the Volasfera symbols attributed to the Mid-Heaven, the Sun, and the Moon in the horoscope of Bahá’u’lláh.
