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.

7th house in astrology, astrology, Houses!

7th House

The 7th house is an angular house, known as the descendant and the house of your partner. This house is home to the cardinal sign Libra ruled by Venus and is the masculine expression of that planet. The element closely attributed to this house is Air. This house is related to social interactions. Because the 7th house shares its axis with the 1st house communication is one on one. The seventh house shows your one or one relationships, business partners, contracts. Being 10th from the 10th house, the 7th house represents laws your career, and the legacy created with someone else as well as marriage.  Because, this is an air house ruled by Venus this house, through logic, is how you use your values, voice, and possessions to create a harmonious existence.

When there are planets in the seventh house, they take on Libra qualities. It is also like having that planet conjunct Venus. This is the masculine aspect of Venus so values, money, possessions are sought outwardly through others. If there are personal planets in this house it has a powerful influence on your personal life be it Sun your ego, Moon your emotion, Mercury how you communicate and your peers, Venus your values and interpersonal relationships, and Mars what you put your energy towards.

With the Sun in this spot the ego and what you want personally has to take a set. This is the house about creating harmony with someone else through compromise in order to get the objective goal of the partnership. So your conscious personality has to water down a bit, becoming passive or deceiving to obtain that harmony. Moon in this house has someone with there emotions dependent on their relationships with others, or instead of wearing your heart on your sleeves as in the 1st house, those you are around on a one on one base will seem emotional. Thus, relationships, business dealings etc. seem to ebb and flow like the tide. You have an intuitive understanding of relationships.

With Mercury here, you like jokes with your partner. They should be quick-witted with a sense of humor. You think about relationships, and enjoy more than one relationship at a time. Not always on the same levels meaning you have a romantic sexual relationship, and you are curious about having a no sexual romantic relationship or what have you. With Mercury here, you tend to analyze relationships, business dealings with others to better understand them. Your words and how you communicate will add to your ability to gain some sort of benefits from others. Not in the same way as the 8th house, the 7th house is a precursor to the 8th. Emotional involvement is not something that comes to mind this is the individual meeting others on the detached and logical level.

This is the house of Venus. You value harmony, socially accepted and refined beauty, relating to others or your environment in some way. You know how to be in a relationship and how to have it benefit you in the long run. Mars in this house is the go-getter when it comes to relationships. But Mars has to refine its raw energy to fit in Venusian houses. This is not the best placement for this planet but, Mars will make it work when it comes to things of this house. You will want to go after relationships and may have many partners who want to dominate relationships. You will have to stick up for yourself when it comes to others.

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.

Houses in Astrology

There are 12 houses in astrology. The 12 houses correlate to the 12 signs. The 1st house is home for Ares, the 2nd house is home to Taurus, the 3rd house is home to Gemini so on and so forth. Astrological houses hold an is the environment the zodiac signs evolve in. As for planets, the houses are ruled or governed by planets, corresponding to the masculine and feminine aspect of planets. An easy way to tell if a house is masculine or feminine is if it is an even or odd house. Even numbers are seen as feminine, odd numbers are masculine. Another way is by the natural element associated with that house, fire and air are masculine, earth and water are feminine.

There are three types of houses angular houses relating to cardinal signs like Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Succedent houses relating to fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Then, cadent houses relating to mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Angular houses create the structure of the natal chart and start the flow of energy through the signs. Succedent houses preserve the energy created from the Agular houses and Cardinal signs. The need for preservation in the houses is one reason why fixed signs are stubborn and hard to change. Cadent houses keep the energy flowing ensuring nothing is stagnant. The requirement for energy to move and progress is why mutable signs need space freedom and the ability to move and transmute in accordance with there element.

The primary run through of the houses are as follows

House          Zodiac    Planet    Element   House type    Modality   Gender

1st house    Aries      Mars       Fire            Angular          Cardinal   Masculine

Neptune

Neptune is the eighth planet from the sun right behind Uranus (tehehehe). Neptune has 5 rings with 14 moons. Because of the color, it is named after the Roman sea god Neptune. This gas giant takes 165 years to orbit the sun lasting in one sign for about 14 years depending if it is going direct, or if it is going through the various stages of retrograde.

Neptune rules the 12th house,  co-rules the sign Pisces with Jupiter even when Pisces is the sole expression of Neptune. With water as the element for this planet, with a  mutable modality. Even though the god Neptune is male the planet is feminine given that the sign, house, and element attributed to it are all feminine Neptune is about illusions, glamour, it is elusive and cunning. Keep that in mind when you are dealing with Pisces most of the time the victim card is a cunning ploy. Very few Neptunian/Pisces/12th house people are truly gullible. If they listen to their intuituion they realize any games someone else is trying to play with them. Often times the seasoned Neptunian is five steps ahead. Do not underestimate them.

Neptune is a planet that governs the contemporary in a sense it is a generational planet like the rest of the modern planets Uranus and Pluto included. It regulates over the collective subconscious, and it is a planet closely related to the other side of the vail and the dead. Yes, I know it is more recognized that Pluto rules the dead. Though from experience, personal and professional, Neptune dominate people or those with strong 12th house placement and Neptune aspects encounter more of the other side than not. The difference in encounters of death between the two planets is from perspective. Neptune accepts death and the dead as natural and every day whereas Plutonic death is a catalyst for transformation. With Pluto, it is felt more harshly than not forcing the softer side of someone to have a mini death within in order to continue on. An example of Neptune dealing with the dead someone with Neptune in the 4th house may grow up near or across from cemeteries and are more inclined to have a mother or family who can see the other side. Whereas a Plutonic 4th house person would have to go through power struggles, violence, and symbolic death to survive their ordeals. When death happens Plutonically it is soul crushing. Though, think of it as something to make you durable.

Neptune dominant people are imaginative, creative, most of the time they are a bit psychic. They are very artistic, also can easily pick up makeup and glamour better than any other planetary dominant. They need their time alone to recharge and space to. There may be a tendency to desire to get lost through spirituality or substance abuse.

The opposing planet for Neptune is Mercury. The Neptune Mercury dynamic is of vagueness and precision respectively. Though both planets are about understanding the ever-changing world around them Neptune does so by recognizing the subconscious and emotions that are by nature incomprehensible. While Mercury gains understanding in its environment deducing topics outside of emotions in practical ways. For the feminine expression of Mercury what makes sense before should make sense again. Neptune moto would be what is is or what will be will be. Then flip a situation to benefit the Neptunian.

If you want to work with this planet metaphysically or magically, I would advise studying the ocean, learning about ocean deities. Study the gods Poseidon, Neptune, and Yemaya, learn sailor lore. a good day for Neptune is Friday just as it is for Venus. Learn about all forms of art, music, art, theater, etc. Understand the subconscious and metaphysics. I hope you the best on your journey.
