Lost or Stolen objects

Finding lost or stolen objects in Horary Astrology

People ask Tarot readers about mislaid or stolen items, where they can find a lover or relationship, or perhaps which direction to move home or work. Horary Astrology comes to the rescue.

At an elemental level, finding objects is self-explanatory.

Places of Objects


Middle height or level, near a wall, by a fire or heat source, near something that is iron or steel


In water, lowlands, near moisture. Fountains, bathrooms, oil tanks, liquid containers.


Upper level, above ground, upstairs, near windows, fresh air.


On the ground, in the earth. By a bridge. Concrete or pavements

The Triplicities show how easy something is found:


The lost object is in its usual place: nearby, quick and easy to find


The object is not in its usual place, and will take longer to find. However, it is usually nearby, outside, or in an outbuilding such as a garage, or in the garden


Either far off, or close by, but hidden and almost impossible to find. This will take time to find, usually indirectly by a third-party

The zodiac signs narrow down the direction:

  • Aries: East
  • Taurus: South by East
  • Gemini: West by South
  • Cancer: North
  • Leo: East by North
  • Virgo: South by West
  • Libra: West
  • Scorpio: North by East
  • Sagittarius: East by South
  • Capricorn: South
  • Aquarius: West by North
  • Pisces: North by West

The Houses follow the compass directions:

  2. ENE
  3. NNE
  4. North
  5. NNW
  6. WNW
  7. West
  8. WSW

  1. Hi this is a great guide, and thank you for sharing it, but how would you do the predicting? Using a special spread? Drawing one card? thank you

      you can either use an astrology based tarot spread, or use the Opening of The Key Tarot spread, which I describe on Supertarot.
