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.

 

 

6th house in astrology, astrology, Houses!, Planets!!!

6th House

The 6th house is governed by Mercury and native to the zodiac sign Virgo. The element closely associated with this house is earth making this house focused on practical and material matters. This is a cadent house dealing with change in someone’s environment. This house is about the day to day grind and work. This is the house of service, debt, open enemies, and health. Taking a closer look at this house and how it relates to the other earth houses shows it is where we organize matter from the 2nd house like making our values apparent in our day to day lives, managing the money we get from the 2nd house. About the 10th house of your legacy and your career, without having a job or a routine, there would be no legacy or profession you can build over time.

Planets in the sixth house take an earthy and mercurial tone. This is the feminine house of Mercury. The high, nervous, energy moves from being expressed logically, socially, and outward to internally, focusing on practical matters, breaking down information recives from your environment. Planets in this house is relational to having a planet in the sign Virgo and having that planet conjunct mercury.

With a quick overview of planets in the 6th house, we will start with the personal planets. The first of these being the Sun, your ego. Sun in the sixth is related to a Virgo sun. You identify with your logic building or holding your confidence through your ability to analyze areas and situations around you. For a Sun in the sixth house person, your health becomes who you are. It is best to maintain reasonable health and stay active to not get into a slump. Being kin to Sun/Mercury conjunction the mind and words are fine-tuned. Though not in the same way as the Sun in the third house. You take your time to accurately assess people, your environment, and situations to a ‘T.’ You have a talent when it comes to filtering the BS of others.

Moon in the 6th is like a Virgo moon. To feel emotionally, balance take care of your health and maintain a clean and organized environment. This is not an option. How organized your home reflects how calm, or chaotic, your mind maybe. The emotions most of the time run towards anxious, agitation, and restless. The best way to deal with those emotions would be through meditations and things of the 12th house. Taking time alone to recoup, reflection, and learning to live in the moment removes the overactive mercurial energy with peace when it comes to the moon. This placement leads you to want to talk about your emotions, though, not with just anyone you meet as a third house moon but someone you have some bound and depth. If not you will feel those you know superficially may betray your trust when you confide in them.

Mercury loves this location. It has the time to break down, digest, and comprehend the knowledge it gained from the 3rd house. This allows your logical mind to notice details within the body and surroundings. Though, because the 6th house is 3rd form the 8th house, what you say could have a bite to it. On a lighter note, your communication could have a focus on critiquing those around you. You are not always using that keen intelligence to convey the inner workings of others. Though, it is hard to BS a Mercury in the 6th.

Venus here creates someone who is down to earth with relationships and their values. Though they may seem too picky, this is not the case. If you take a look around many settles in life not living the fulfilled life they want and refuse to change for the better. Venus in the 6th is about aligning your values with your day to day life. Thus, altering the results by your routine. This placement is about bringing the perfect spiritual 12th house energy to the earth. For Venus, in the 6th the concept of perfection is attainable even if it is highly subjective. The trick is how do you get working down here? Oddly enough, you’ll have to blend 6th and 12th house energy harmoniously by having that goal of perfection but not focusing too much on it. Let people be, continue creating the vision of the life you want for yourself, reflecting on it daily, and those who are in tune with your values will gravitate towards you. People with this placement enjoy deep communication when it comes to relationships. They have the ability to speak clear, concise and eloquently.

Mars here is…uncomfortable. Mars is a planet of primal instinct. Not one that overthinks and overanalyze. 6th house Marians are curious about sex and everything to do with it. On the other hand Mars in the 6th can be quite particular when it comes to what they want in that area. There may be a few…knots to work out. Physical health and cleanliness are essential. Moving around helps dispel all that pinned up Mercurial nervousness in the body. They are darn near militant with their work.
