For this question, i had created the new tag called horary-astrology. As is evident from the shared wiki link, horary is a distinct branch of astrology. So, for my question it is more apt a tag to use than the regular astrology tag.
But, it was removed.
From this page:
As a general rule, you should avoid creating new tags if possible, and new users are not allowed to create new tags. Even if you have sufficient reputation, you should only create new tags when you feel you can make a strong case that your question covers a new topic that nobody else has asked about before on this site
So, in this particular case, i am probably asking on a topic which has not been hitherto dealt with here.
1.So, how was the tag creation wrong or against the rules and why was it removed?
2. Under what circumstances this particular tag-creation would have been considered as correct? Or the message given is we can not create it at all no matter what?
My points are:
- Horary is a distinct branch of astrology. So, it demands a new tag for it. When more questions are asked on the subject the users can use it.
- By removing the tag the signal given is "Don't ask questions on Horary" Or "When we have astrology tag already this new tag is not needed", but this is wrong.
- If a question is specifically on Horary then the Horary tag obviously should go with it. We can also tag with astrology though, just like some questions are tagged with both Veda and Rig Veda.
From wiki on Horary:
Horary astrology has its own strict system. The position of and aspects to the moon are of prime importance. The person asking the question, or querent, is represented by the ruler of the sign the first house cusp falls on in the horoscope. Planetary aspects to the house cusps are considered more important than in other branches of astrology
From here you can read about traditional Hindu horary by Bhattopala. And, here is a book on Prasna Tantra (or Horary astrology) by the well-known B.V.Raman. So, the subject has it's own methods and which are distinct from those of Natal astrology.
