Querent is a term used in horary astrology in order to refer to the person who has asked the question.

The term is derived from the Latin quaerens, which means “to seek”, “ask”, “inquire”, or “interrogate”.

In most horary charts the querent is associated with the first house, the ruler of the first house, and the Moon.

While the term querent is used to refer to the one who asked a horary question, the term quesited is used in order to refer to the thing that the querent inquired about.
