10. Analysis for Each Department of Life (The Houses)

The following paragraphs describe the various departments of life mapped by the Houses in your chart. See the appendix for a more detailed description of houses in general. The most astrologically active departments of life in your chart, in order of importance, are mapped by the 1st House, the 10th House, the 2nd House, the 12th House and the 3rd House.

1st House – Personal Matters

The 1st House has dominion over activities of life relating to personality, physical body, physical appearance and demeanor, quality of the personal magnetism, personal prowess, personal matters and general health.

The 1st house is the Most Powerful House in your chart and is the subject of intense feeling, activity and events, is very harmonious and contains six planets: Neptune, the MoonMercuryMars, the Sun and Pluto. The Moon is your Dominant Planet.

Neptune in the 1st House

Neptune is prominent (being in an angular house and its close aspect to the Moon) although of average power relative to the power distribution in your chart, and is mildly discordant.

Whatever house is occupied by Neptune is influenced by subtle and visionary factors. There is something elusive and mystical about the section of life denoted by this house. About the things so denoted, the imagination weaves pictures, and these mental pictures influence the attitude toward reality. Neptune expresses through the imagination, romance, increased sensitivity, psychic impressions, wishful thinking, fantasy thinking, daydreaming, apprehension, idealistic visions or by schemes and thoughts of easy wealth or promotion. Because the chief expression of the thought-cells mapped by Neptune relate to images of conditions more perfect, they are generally referred to as the Utopian Urges. The department of life ruled by the house occupied by Neptune is subject to Illusion in that things are not always as they appear.

Neptune in Pisces: Neptune maps the Utopian Urges embracing wishful or fantasy thinking and daydreaming, apprehension, idealistic visions and lofty spiritual ideas, the imagination, romanticism, platonic relationships and thoughts of easy wealth or promotion of schemes. Neptune is at home in the sign Pisces where it can express more harmoniously. With the Utopian thought-cells expressing from the “I Believe” attitude of Pisces, seek idealism through humanitarian plans rather than through charitable endeavors rather than in pursuing and blindly following the advice of invisible intelligences.

Neptune in the 1st House shows that the Idealistic Urges express primarily through the personality and appearance indicating idealism and sensitivity. You are intuitive and possibly psychic. You may have illusions about your own personal nature. The Neptune person may show genius or there can be flashes of brilliance. There may be an attraction to platonic relationships. There is a tendency to hypersensitivity, fantasy thinking, daydreaming, romance, apprehension, or thoughts of easy wealth or promotion. The best way to combat discordant Neptune thinking is through substituting Saturn thinking by resorting to systematic and organized effort and considering what is practical. Think things through and avoid vagueness by using critical thinking to analyze your ideas. Valuable ideas are those which can be made practical and allow you to realize the idealism you seek. Cultivate a willingness to work hard and think clearly to realize your ideals.

Neptune is also involved in one special planetary configurations in your chart:

The special configuration that Neptune is involved in is a T-Square (See Special Configuration #1 in the Special Chart Configurations section above) involving Saturn and MC in the 3rd and 10th Houses.

Moon in the 1st House

Moon is prominent (being in an angular house) and powerful and is neutral regarding harmony or discord.

Whatever house is occupied by the Moon is subject to ebb and flow, has a significant impact on the mental attitude and the emotions and may be the subject of psychic impressions. The matters ruled by this department of life tend to fluctuate and are the subject of small, insignificant events and everyday affairs. Because the chief expression of the thought-cells in the unconscious mind relate to primarily family life, they are referred to as the Domestic Urges.

Moon in the 1st House indicates a personality that is impressionable and characterized by changing moods. The health may be subject to fluctuation. You are interested in everyday affairs, what’s happening around you and what everyone is doing. When the Moon is afflicted (discordant), there may be a tendency to gossip. This can be controlled by directing that energy into harmonious domestic affairs.

Moon is also involved in one special planetary configurations in your chart:

The special configuration that Moon is involved in is a T-Square (See Special Configuration #1 in the Special Chart Configurations section above) involving Saturn and MC in the 3rd and 10th Houses.

Mercury in the 1st House

Mercury is prominent (being in an angular house and its close aspect to the Moon) although of average power relative to the power distribution in your chart, and is neutral regarding harmony or discord.

Whatever house is occupied by Mercury becomes the subject of mental effort. The mind expresses itself readily where the things so denoted are concerned. The department of life ruled by the house occupied by Mercury is subject to thought and the subject of conversation. Because the chief expression of the thought-cells in the unconscious mind mapped by Mercury in the chart relate to the intellectual life, they are referred to as the Intellectual Urges.

Mercury in Pisces: With the Intellectual thought cells, governing cerebral processes, perception, comparison and communication, expressing from the “I Believe” attitude of Pisces, the speech, and expression in general, should be positive and good humored rather than timid or fretful. The best quality of Pisces is sympathy, and its worst quality is worry.

Mercury in the 1st House indicates that the Intellectual Urges express through the personality. This give a loquacious, mentally alert personality that shows ability for speaking, writing and study. Your actions and expression tend to be based on logic and reasoning. You may be an inveterate traveler or inclined to write. Mercury is always mentally alert but can be restless and this will show in your personality. Mercury people often worry about the details and may feel responsible for more than their share. The natural antidote for this is reliance on a higher power and having faith that things will turn out well.

Important aspects to Mercury

The most powerful aspect to Mercury is Mercury Parallel Pluto. With 10.34 astrodynes of power, this aspect is powerful but is neutral regarding harmony or discord. Pluto is also in the 1st. This parallel aspect shows that this area of life experiences an intense relationship. The aspect shows the mental interests, facility or accuracy of expression and cerebral activity influence, and are influenced by, groups, subtle force, and cooperation or coercion. This parallel aspect indicates an intense relationship between these factors showing ability to cooperate with others, to work with groups, and to tune in on inner-plane information and forces to advantage. There may also be groups that tend to coerce and to take undue advantage, and that even unseen forces may endeavor to influence. Pleasant and positive thoughts of courage in protecting the weak and helpless need to be associated with thoughts of groups and cooperation.

The 2nd most powerful aspect to Mercury is Moon Conjunction Mercury. With 7.51 astrodynes of power, this aspect is moderately powerful but is neutral regarding harmony or discord. The Moon is also in the 1st. This conjunction aspect shows that this area of life experiences a powerful association. The aspect shows the mental attitude, domestic life and everyday affairs influence, and are influenced by, mental interests, facility or accuracy of expression and cerebral activity. This conjunction aspect indicates a powerful association between these factors showing a good mind and ability to express thoughts readily.

Of particular note here is that Mercury is in Mutual Reception with Jupiter. Jupiter is in the 12th House relating to secrets, disappointments and limitations. These two planets are in Mutual Reception because each occupies the sign which is the exaltation or the home of the other. The resonance thus created tends to be the most harmonious of any due to the sign positions of the two planets. They tend to benefit each other through mutual aims, and the departments of life ruled by houses occupied by the two planets tend markedly to assist each other.

Mars in the 1st House

Mars is prominent (being in an angular house and its close aspect to the Sun) and moderately powerful and is harmonious.

Mars here indicates that forcefulness and energy are expressed through this department of life. Advantage is usually gained through initiative and combat. If loss is indicated by an afflicted (discordant) Mars, there is much struggle associated with it. There will be strenuous activity regarding the things ruled by this house. To the extent the thought cells mapped by Mars are prominent, is the life influenced by thoughts of construction, destruction, initiative, aggression, combat, sex, eating or drinking. Because the chief expression of the thought-elements in the unconscious mind mapped by Mars in the chart relate to attacking obstacles, they are referred to as the Aggressive Urges.

Mars in Aries: Mars maps the Aggressive Urges, embracing thoughts and actions relating to construction, destruction, initiative, aggression, combat, sex, amativeness, eating and drinking. With the Aggressive thought-cells expressing from the I AM attitude of Aries, channel your initiative through constructive enterprise rather than asserting superiority.

Mars in the 1st House maps the Aggressive Urges expressing through the personality, indicating an aggressive, outgoing personality with abundant energy. It also indicates mechanical ability and a willingness to face danger. There is a tendency, however, to be compulsive and rash, so cultivate the habit of thinking things through carefully before acting. Replace destructive thoughts with constructive activities. When prominent and afflicted (discordant), there is a tendency toward quarrelsomeness and harshness. Undue severity and antagonism hinder constructive endeavors. You’ll find greater joy focusing your initiative in fighting disease, ignorance and poverty than in combating human foes. With self-discipline, you can focus your abundant energy into successful and rewarding outlets. The natural antidote for an afflicted Mars is to take aggressive measures to protect the weak and helpless.

Important aspects to Mars

The most powerful aspect to Mars is Sun Conjunction Mars. This aspect is also the most powerful aspect in the chart and is mildly discordant relative to the other aspects in the chart. The Sun is also in the 1st. See the description of this aspect under “Best, Worst and Most Powerful Chart Aspects” in the section on Astrodyne Analysis.

The 2nd most powerful aspect to Mars is Mars Trine MC. With 8.68 astrodynes of power, this aspect is powerful and with 6.51 harmodynes is very harmonious, relative to the other aspects in the chart. The MC is on the cusp of the 10th House that relates to the public recognition, for good or for ill, you receive regarding matters ruled by the planets which make aspects to it, which, in this case, is the Trine aspect from Mars. This very harmonious trine aspect shows that these two areas of life experience cooperation to bring good luck. The aspect shows aggressiveness, combativeness and initiative influence public recognition and reputation. This very harmonious trine aspect indicates these factors work harmoniously together showing public recognition for constructive energy and aggressive action. Avoid being too harsh by associating the martial inclinations with aggressive actions to protect the weak, helpless and less fortunate.

Of particular note here is that Sun is in Mutual Reception with Mars. The Sun is also in the 1st. These two planets are in Mutual Reception because each occupies the sign which is the exaltation or the home of the other. The resonance thus created tends to be the most harmonious of any due to the sign positions of the two planets. The discordant nature of the aspect will still manifest, but they tend to benefit each other through mutual aims, and the departments of life ruled by houses occupied by the two planets tend markedly to assist each other.

Sun in the 1st House

Sun is prominent (being in an angular house) and powerful and is very harmonious.

When a house (department of life) is occupied by the Sun, those matters are vitalized, pursued with vigor and become a dominant motive in the life that affects your significance, authority and self-esteem. Because the chief expression of the thought-elements in the unconscious mind mapped by the Sun in the chart are directed toward gaining and maintaining significance, and their activity strongly influences the relation of the individual to those in authority, as well as influencing his authority over others, they are called Power Urges.

Sun in Aries: cultivate leadership and avoid officiousness.

Sun in the 1st House shows the Power Urges expressing through the personality indicating a personal presence and demeanor that is vital and vigorous and projects dignity and authority. It also brings strong recuperative powers. A discordant Sun in the 1st House can be overbearing and prideful.

Important aspects to the Sun

The most powerful aspect to the Sun is Sun Conjunction Mars. This aspect is also the most powerful aspect in the chart and is mildly discordant relative to the other aspects in the chart. Mars is also in the 1st. See the description of this aspect in this same house, above.

The 2nd most powerful aspect to the Sun is Sun Trine MC. This aspect is also the best (most harmonious) aspect in the chart and, relative to the other aspects in the chart, is powerful. The MC is on the cusp of the 10th House that relates to the public recognition, for good or for ill, you receive regarding matters ruled by the planets which make aspects to it, which, in this case, is the Trine aspect from the Sun. See the description of this aspect under “Best, Worst and Most Powerful Chart Aspects” in the section on Astrodyne Analysis.

The 3rd most powerful aspect to the Sun is Sun Sextile Jupiter. With 5.79 astrodynes of power, this aspect is of average power and with 8.68 harmodynes is very harmonious, relative to the other aspects in the chart. Jupiter is in the 12th House relating to secrets, disappointments and limitations. This harmonious sextile aspect shows that these two areas of life experience good opportunities. The aspect shows the vitality, authority and relations with men influence, and are influenced by, abundance, optimism and joviality. This harmonious sextile aspect indicates these factors work harmoniously together showing good vitality and favors from people of power.

The 4th most powerful aspect to the Sun is Sun Conjunction Pluto. With 5.37 astrodynes of power, this aspect is of average power but is neutral regarding harmony or discord. Pluto is also in the 1st. This conjunction aspect shows that this area of life experiences a powerful association. The aspect shows the vitality, authority and relations with the opposite sex influence, and are influenced by, groups, subtle force, and coercion or cooperation. This conjunction aspect indicates a powerful association between these factors showing benefit and authority through group activity.

Of particular note here is that Sun is in Mutual Reception with Mars. Mars is also in the 1st. See the description of this aspect in this same house, above.

Pluto in the 1st House

Pluto is prominent (being in an angular house and its close aspect to the Sun) although of average power relative to the power distribution in your chart, and is mildly discordant.

Whatever house is occupied by Pluto is subject to inner-plane influence, either for good or ill. The activities stimulated include facilities for cooperation with others and for contacting groups of people. Because the chief expression of the thought-cells mapped by Pluto relate to cooperation for the welfare of the group, and spiritual efforts for the benefit of all, they are generally referred to as the Universal Welfare Urges. To the extent the thought cells mapped by Pluto are active, is the life influenced by thoughts of groups, statistics, division of labor, mass production, inner-plane conditions, drastic events, the inside of things, gang methods, cooperation, coercion, or universal welfare. If Pluto is powerful in the chart and afflicted (discordant), there will be undue pressure brought to bear by others to compel such action as they desire relative to the things the house rules.

Pluto in Taurus: Pluto maps the Universal Welfare Urges embracing thoughts and actions related to groups, statistics, inner-plane conditions, drastic events, the inside of things, gang methods, cooperation, coercion, and universal welfare. With the Universal Welfare Urges expressing from the “I Have” attitude of Taurus, seek cooperation through attaining freedom from want for all rather than in monopolizing wealth.

Pluto in the 1st House shows that the Universal Welfare Urges express primarily through the personality, indicating one who is active, energetic and resourceful, and tends to unite with others to accomplish a common purpose. The Pluto personality can be powerfully dynamic and shows spiritual possibilities. You consciously or unconsciously, easily tune in on the thoughts and energies being broadcast from the inner planes, opening you to unusual sources of information and power. A well-aspected Pluto indicates that inner-plane forces will benefit your developing spirituality and shows the ability to cooperate for a common effort. If Pluto is afflicted, there will be undue pressure brought to bear by others to compel you to do their bidding. Effort to benefit all, rather than some group, will bring greater satisfaction. The best antidote for an afflicted (discordant) Pluto is to cultivate aggressive action (Mars) to protect the weak and to help the less fortunate.

Important aspects to Pluto

The most powerful aspect to Pluto is Mercury Parallel Pluto. With 10.34 astrodynes of power, this aspect is powerful but is neutral regarding harmony or discord. Mercury is also in the 1st. See the description of this aspect in this same house, above.

The 2nd most powerful aspect to Pluto is Pluto Sextile Ascendant. With 6.79 astrodynes of power, this aspect is moderately powerful and with 6.79 harmodynes is very harmonious, relative to the other aspects in the chart. The Ascendant is also on the cusp of the 1st House that relates to the effect on the personality, health and personal affairs from the aspects made to it, which, in this case, is the Sextile aspect from Pluto. This harmonious sextile aspect shows that this area of life experiences good opportunities. The aspect shows groups, subtle force, and coercion or cooperation influence, and are influenced by, the personality, physical body and health. This harmonious sextile aspect indicates these factors work harmoniously together showing an active, energetic and resourceful personality that tends to unite with others to accomplish a common purpose. It also shows the ability to consciously or unconsciously easily tune in on the thoughts and energies being broadcast from the inner planes that open up unusual sources of information and power.

The 3rd most powerful aspect to Pluto is Sun Conjunction Pluto. With 5.37 astrodynes of power, this aspect is of average power but is neutral regarding harmony or discord. The Sun is also in the 1st. See the description of this aspect in this same house, above.

2nd House – Money and Possessions

The 2nd House has dominion over activities of life relating to money, possessions and personal resources.

The 2nd house is powerful relative to the other houses in the chart. This house is the Best House in your chart, is very harmonious and contains two planets: Uranus and VenusVenus is your Best Planet.

Having two planets in this house indicates that it is an important department of life.

Uranus in the 2nd House

Uranus is weak and less active and is neutral regarding harmony or discord.

The thought cells mapped by Uranus powerfully influence originality of thought, and the ability to make marked departures from precedence and custom. Because their chief expression relates to originality, they are generally referred to as the Individualistic Urges. Whatever house is occupied by Uranus denotes things about which radical tendencies are likely to manifest. In the section of life indicated by such a house there are sudden changes and developments of an extreme nature, either constructive or destructive. Whatever good is signified in one direction is accompanied by some lesser disadvantage in another and vice versa. To the extent the thought cells mapped by Uranus are active (powerful in the chart), is the life influenced by thoughts of independence, originality, invention, the unconventional, unusual or new methods.

Uranus in Taurus: Uranus maps the Individualistic Urges embracing thoughts and actions relating to independence, originality, invention, the unconventional and unusual, new or radical methods. With the Individualistic thought-cells expressing from the “I Have” attitude of Taurus, seek originality through handling money rather than in being obstinate.

Uranus in the 2nd House shows that the Individualistic Urges express primarily through money and possessions, indicating sudden gains and losses. Financial matters tend to be disruptive. What is gained in one area may be lost in another. This position also indicates unusual talents and methods of making money. If Uranus is powerful in the chart and afflicted (discordant), you may be drawn to impractical financial ventures. Cultivate original ideas that will pay financial dividends. The natural antidote for an afflicted Uranus is Jupiter thinking that relies on providence, is optimistic and more conventional, avoiding erratic behavior.

Venus in the 2nd House

Venus is prominent (its close aspect to the Moon) although weak and less active relative to the power distribution in your chart, but is very harmonious.

Whatever house is occupied by Venus has a strong influence upon the affections, and through it an appeal to the affections can readily be made. Mating, companionship, affection and love are expressions of the thought cells mapped by this planet. The things denoted by this house tend to prosper not through effort and initiative, but through kindnesses and favors received because of grace of manners, and following the line of least resistance. Because the chief expression of the thought-cells in the unconscious mind mapped by Venus in the chart relate to the social life they are referred to as the Social Urges.

Venus in Taurus: Taurus is the home sign of Venus, indicating harmonious expression of the Social Urges, embracing the emotions, the affections, social relationships and artistic appreciation. Expressing from the I HAVE attitude of Taurus, the affections are best expressed by being sociable and warm rather than too greatly influenced by worldly possessions.

Venus in the 2nd House maps the Social Urges expressing through money and possessions. Because Venus brings favors, this position shows money and possessions coming through little effort. It also indicates a love of wealth and beautiful possessions including jewelry, art objects and music or musical instruments. This is a good position for artists if Venus is prominent and well-aspected. It also indicates that wealth may be associated with the affections and social relations. To the extent that Venus is well-aspected, you benefit by cultivating social relations. If Venus is prominent (powerful) and afflicted (discordant), cultivate caution, system, fairness and foresight (Saturn Safety thoughts), along with thoughts and feelings of pride, dignity, firmness and self-esteem (Sun Power thoughts).

Important aspects to Venus

The most powerful aspect to Venus is Moon Sextile Venus. With 6.38 astrodynes of power, this aspect is moderately powerful and with 7.98 harmodynes is very harmonious, relative to the other aspects in the chart. The Moon is in the 1st House relating to personal matters, the personality and physical characteristics. This harmonious sextile aspect shows that these two areas of life experience good opportunities. The aspect shows the mental attitude, domestic life and everyday affairs influence, and are influenced by, the emotions, social relations and artistic appreciation. This harmonious sextile aspect indicates these factors work harmoniously together favoring domestic and social matters.
These two planets are in Mutual Reception because each occupies the sign which is the exaltation or the home of the other. The resonance thus created tends to be the most harmonious of any due to the sign positions of the two planets. They tend to benefit each other through mutual aims, and the departments of life ruled by houses occupied by the two planets tend markedly to assist each other.

3rd House – Personal Interests, Siblings and Social Media

The 3rd House has dominion over activities of life relating to mental activity, education and personal studies, siblings, neighbors, writing, hobbies, local travel and communications.

The 3rd house is of average power relative to the other houses in the chart. This house is the Worst House in your chart, is discordant and contains one planet: Saturn. Saturn is your Worst Planet, which is described in the “Worst Planet” section under Astrodyne Analysis above.

Saturn in the 3rd House

Saturn is weak and less active and is discordant.

Whatever house is occupied by Saturn experiences hard work, responsibility, and frugality or loss. Saturn maps that area of the unconscious mind referred to as the Safety Urges because these thought-cells relate to hard work, acquisition, persistence, planning, organization and all things which serve to provide stability, safety and security for the individual.

When especially prominent (powerful) in the chart and afflicted (discordant), these Saturn thought-elements can stimulate discordant thoughts of fear, greed, envy, or self-centeredness, and are responsible for loss, hardship and privation and the necessity of working diligently for every advantage. There can be restrictions of various kinds and heavy burdens leading to emotions which can be morose, melancholy or despondent, leading in some cases to clinical depression, depending also on environmental and hereditary factors. You can benefit from an afflicted Saturn by directing your Safety Urges to express in a constructive manner as when harmonious. (See next paragraph.)

When Saturn is powerful in the chart and harmonious or neutral (that is, not too discordant), then you can benefit from efficiency, economy, organization, hard work, shrewdness and your ability to buy to advantage.

Saturn in Gemini: Saturn maps the Safety Urges embracing thoughts and actions relating to safety, secrecy, acquisitiveness, buying, trading, worry, fear, system, order and persistence. With the Safety thought-cells expressing from the “I Think” attitude of Gemini, seek security through system and order and taking action rather than just talking or constantly mulling issues and concerns.

Saturn in the 3rd House shows that the Safety Urges express primarily through education, writing, personal studies, relatives (including siblings) and neighbors. Saturn here shows deep thinking and hard work relating to education, writing or communications. Saturn also brings increased responsibility for siblings or other relatives and there can be difficulties or increased responsibilities with neighbors. You may show a strong desire to get an education and the willingness to work hard for it.

When Saturn is powerful in the chart, the alchemical antidote for discordant Saturn thinking is to employ the warm SOCIAL thoughts of Venus and the vital POWER thoughts of the Sun regarding education, writing and communications in general. Cultivating pleasure in social activities stimulates the Venus social thought-cells. Cultivating Sun thoughts of your importance and self-esteem with respect to 3rd house matters will combine the Saturn and Venus components in the unconscious mind into a harmonious complex that will attract better fortune.

Saturn is also involved in one special planetary configurations in your chart:

The special configuration that Saturn is involved in is a T-Square (See Special Configuration #1 in the Special Chart Configurations section above) involving MC, Moon and Neptune in the 10th and 1st Houses.

Jupiter in the 12th House

Jupiter is prominent (its close aspect to the Sun) although weak and less active relative to the power distribution in your chart, but is very harmonious.

Whatever house is occupied by Jupiter experiences abundance, goodwill and optimism. Jupiter maps the Religious Urges in the unconscious mind, so called because these thought-cells tend to express through veneration, philosophical or religious thinking and faith in providence. Jupiter is also considered a business planet because it manifests abundance, goodwill and optimism and rules the professions in general.

Jupiter in Aquarius: Jupiter maps the Religious Urges embracing thoughts and actions relating to benevolence, veneration, hope, devotion, generosity and goodwill toward others. With the religious thought-cells expressing from the “I Know” attitude of Aquarius, cultivate faith in facts and altruistic activities rather than in theories and argument.

Jupiter in the 12th House indicates that the Religious Urges express primarily through sorrows, disappointments, and restrictions. This placement shows that you can benefit from, and be benefitted by, large institutions that minster to those in need including hospitals, asylums, churches and universities. As the 12th House also rules secret enemies, this position of Jupiter shows benefit rather than injury from the efforts of secret enemies. Cultivating discrimination and critical thinking will benefit any effort to alleviate the distress of others.

Important aspects to Jupiter

The most powerful aspect to Jupiter is Sun Sextile Jupiter. With 5.79 astrodynes of power, this aspect is of average power and with 8.68 harmodynes is very harmonious, relative to the other aspects in the chart. The Sun is in the 1st House relating to personal matters, the personality and physical characteristics. See the description of this aspect under the 1st House above.

Of particular note here is that Mercury is in Mutual Reception with Jupiter. Mercury is in the 1st House relating to personal matters, the personality and physical characteristics. See the description of this aspect under the 1st House above.
