In the previous article, we presented the system of derived houses that allow us to greatly refine the interpretation of a time theme. These houses are in a way the settings in which the actions we are trying to know take place. But for there to be action, there must be actors. These actors are represented by the planets. Here are the main meanings they can have in hourly astrology. Note that in this field, only the 7 traditional planets will be taken into account, which means that Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will not be included. This is due to the fact that these planets were not yet known at the time when the rules of interpretation of hourly astrology were established.
