8th house in astrology, astrology, Houses!

8th house

8th house is a feminine, succedent, and water house responsible for the energy of Scorpio. The 8th house is ruled by two planets. The tradition planet for the 8th house is Mars, and the modern ruler is Pluto. This house relates to emotions, not in the same way as the 4th house, that deals with initial feelings but the depth we don’t always want to deal with and have to learn to transform before we go to the 9th house. Things of the 8th house are under the surface, not apparent to others not emotionally involved with you. The 8th house deals with day to day life after marriage, wills, inheritance, betrayal, the occult, and transformation.

This House encloses the feminine aspect of Mars. Turning the aggression, desire, and drive inward. Mars energy will act out, but in more covert ways, there is a tendency to want to contain Marian energy. Leading to emotional frustration and stagnation.

Planets here take on Scorpio traits and is like that planet be it Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, et cetera is conjunct Mars or Pluto. Sun, or ego, here still carries that aggression energy and drive a Sun/Mars but this is often build up and held back. What the Sun in the 8th house person understands are the unwelcoming aspects others consciously display. A way for them to gain a sense of confidence would be through learning how others work via psychology, pursuing hidden knowledge in within occultism or taking an interest with mysteries. On a side note, occultism is not truly hidden. Most of the time “occultic knowledge” is in your face you just have to know how to decipher it.

Moon in this house calls for great emotional work. The Moon has to work to stay sane. Things of the 8th house truly hit home for 8th house Moons. Emotions are more extreme you are combining your feelings with the intimate depth of other people. There is more turmoil with your inner mind and emotions here. The emotional extremes you deal with take a toll to bring strength and sensitivity.

Mercury here gives your words a weight, taking with others gives you the tendency to hit a core within others.  Mercury in the 8th permits one to learn secrets others do not want you to know. Your peers and friends may be those on the fringe of society. Or, they would have interest ranging from occultism and taboo sexual expressions

Romance is all or nothing when Venus is here. Venus may be intense when they are infatuated with someone, they would come up with ways to get the person they want though, not as directly as a Venus in the 1st. What you value can fluctuate from one polarity to the other, from a soul-deep spiritual connection to materialism and power. Venus does not enjoy this placement harmony is not easily attained with Pluto being Venus in the 8th is kin to a Venus/Pluto aspect.

This is Mars’ house. Mars in the 8th house cause someone to pursue elements and situations of this house. You may have a stronger more taboo sexuality, active involvement when it comes to dealing with join assets be it inheritance,  taxes, relational income, etc. The emotions, because this is a water house, has more chutzpah and will be ready to weather any storm that comes their way.


4th house in astrology, astrology, Houses!

4th House

Astrology is amazing. It is a way to understand who we are, where we come from and where we are most likely to go. When it comes to the 4th house, this house is about the home, your family, storage areas, real estate, emotions comfort as well as fulfillment, your mother, and your roots. This house is under the horizon along with the 2nd house to the 12th house. Houses about the horizon are 8-12.

This house correlates with the sign Cancer, the Moon is the ruler of the fourth house, with water as the element related to it. The 4th house is an angular house with a lot of energy in the form of the cardinal sign Cancer. This angular house makes the backbone of your chart and is where you can find the IC or imum coeli latin for the bottom of the sky referring back to below the horizon. Planets here shows how you related to those around you what attributes to your emotional stability, comforts and the quality of your family. Signs here gives a layout of how you are internally, in an emotional sense.

Going through the personal planets in this house meaning the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. You will see these playing out almost as if you have a Cancer Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Sun in the 4th house is like have a Sun/Moon conjunction. You are in touch with your emotions and identify with your roots and family. Though, you will have to make a conscious effort to put out the positive aspects of the moon because any planet close to the Sun combust. Sun in the 4th is not Sun conjunct Moon, but you will see a lot of similarities. Moon in the 4th leads you to be true to your self emotionally, you can understand the emotions of others well and are more receptive than most concerning feelings making you a bit psychic. This is a suitable placement for the Moon overall. Mercury in the 4th house tells you are comfortable or are learning about emotional communicating. Speaking with women, your mother, being about to comfort others with what you say or right is a skill you have or can acquire. You will have a knack for having skill in relation to the 4th house meaning you can be a chief, a fisherman, scuba diver, security, dealing with securities, or history. This placement is like Mercury/Moon conjunction though not to the same extreme. Venus in the 4th house shows someone with a mother or family who are beautiful, money savvy or have really strong values. Mars here is another thing entirely. This creates a lot of energy competitions and arguments in the home life or with the mother and family. Though, it can lead to someone who has learned emotional strength. Also, someone who is comfortable as the leader. This leads someone to go after things relating to the 4th house like real property, learning about your history, etc.

The 4th house and the 10th are on the same axis. Where the 4th house is the root, the 10th is the top of the tree. The fourth house is the bottom of the chart, the 10th house is the top of the natal chart, the highest you may go. They are two sides of the same coin. Though it tells you that emotions, reactions, and family/personal matters should stay at home. Where the 10th house is how you should behave with those in the outside world, and your career.

3rd House in astrology, Houses!

3rd house

The 3rd house in astrology is a cadent house meaning it is about change and adaptation. Cadent housed helps us evolve. The 3rd house is about how we adapt to social changes, given this is an air house, in our immediate environment. The native location for Gemini, the element of this house is air, the ruler of this house is Mercury. This house is where you can find information on childhood, neighbors, peers, and siblings, how you communicated with others in every form of communication, and how you think. The third house shapes the conscious mind and quick reasoning. Planets here take on many 3rd house qualities if there are enough planets here the person could seem like a full-blown Gemini.

If you are looking at someone’s natal chart are judging the conditions of transits in relation to a natal chart each planet especially the personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars will have the same feel as a Mercury conjunction. For the Sun that means someone who loves to communicate and make their point known. They can argue up a storm if it comes down to it. For the Moon, its placement here would create a need to talk or communicate in all forms to sort out the things going on within. Friends and peers can come and go like the tide. The inner day to day mind and emotions are riddled with mercurian nervous energy. With Mercury here, you will have one cunning and smart individual on your hands. They are smart because of an insatiable curiosity. Having their hands in more than one cookie jar is how they keep some semblance of inner peace. It takes time for the Mercury in the third to develop the staying power to handle multiple things at once. Venus here makes a flirt, they will flirt with their friends, neighbors, the postman, you name it. They value communication in all forms. It is like an art for them. In fact, if this person is creative or artistic, they will use creativity to communicate what they value. Their words are subtle used they will use sweet words to get what they want. Mars here makes a spitfire. I do not wish to battle with someone who has this Mars placement. Just with how they communicate form body language to words or text they make it known they can tear you a new one.

The third house sign in someone natal chart tells you the basic of how someone communicates, and people they deal with on a daily bases.  To look more in-depth you will have to find the lord of the third house, meaning you would have to find the planet that rules the sign of that person’s third house.
