it's good to know that this is the right approach
i always assumed that i should look at the Court first and then work backwards to the other houses 🤔
"The Court figures (Witnesses, Judge, and Sentence) form the answer to the query. The Court says what will happen. Everything else in the chart, in both the Shield Chart and the House Chart, describe the details of how things happen. Thus, the Court always come first and provide the heart of the answer to any and all geomantic queries, and of the Court, the Judge figure is the most important. Everything else should be interpreted in light of the Judge figure."
at least they can be billed as work hours
