I disagree. Compare face-to-face meetings to
the organic process of planting a good seed in good soil: such is an event (or
analogous event) to chart, because among other things, it establishes the
so-called chemistry upon which the real question: "is this person for me" is at
first relevant. No one who's Interned dated for a while will agree that
chemistry can come out of e-mail. So--as those with experience (especially
males, who "traditionally" send about ten e-mails for every one a female sends
out--and that ratio is probably more like 50-1)-- e-mails over the Internet
at dating services are like casting seed and chaff onto the rocks: If one
miraculously blooms, which moment do you chart? The reckless casting of the seed
or the moment the sprout bursts through the soil? The former is e-mail, the
latter a face-to-face...where the real first encounter lies. This isn't a birth,
it's a relationship, so these mystical "seeding" moments shouldn't even apply.
The moment that matters comes a few --seconds, minutes?--after the two actually
meet. Neither inception charts nor horary charts could find a better time to

Thanks to all that answered. It's
interesting to read different takes on the situation.
I did a chart of the time my
friend first asked me to do a chart concerning this guy from online.
The Ascendant ruler and ruler of the chart is retrograde.
So it's p robably not
a good time for a new relationship or a new undertaking of any kind for
her. She would be more
likely to return to a previous relationship or situation than
develop this new one.
Then I did another chart for the
time that my friend first emailed questions to the guy through the online
email service for him to answer. The Ascendant ruler for that chart is also

I checked with my Kepler computer
astrology program and it had this to say about charting:
Remember too that you MUST use
the exact time and place of the VERY FIRST arising or receiving of a question.
A first meeting, first date, signing of a contract, receipt of a telephone
call or opening of a letter, or the very first occurrence of a particular
event are all
suitable times for horary analysis, for the question is
implied in the event itself. It is also possible to use the time and place
that a question becomes very urgent, important, or critical to you, but there
usually is an event that has occurred that triggers the question.
Frivolous or impertinent
questions likewise yield no useful information. It usually does no good to ask
a question that has already been asked before, by yourself or anyone else. One
temptation is to ask the question again and again and produce another one of
reports either in hopes of gaining greater clarification or in hopes
of getting different information. This will not work! If you use a valid date
and time and you read this report carefully, you should obtain a great deal of

This is a question for the prediction buffs. I have a friend who
started doing online dating. In the past I have done charts of first meeting
for her. Since the online service allows you to email with each other, their
first meeting has actually been online via email. I can't figure out
when their first meeting is.
The online service does a matching with participants and sends out a
list to the parties involved. She opened up this list and sent out a series
of question to this guy at time A. He read and answered the questions at
time B. To my way of thinking, time B is the time of their first meeting.
Do you think so as well? I can't decide if I should use that time or if
I should just do a horary for the time that she asked me the question to
make a chart for her about this fellow. What would you choose?
