This is the house native to the Sun and the fixed sign Leo. The 5th house is a fire element house as well as a succedent house focused on energy preservation usually preserving energy established in an angular house or the cardinal element of the houses element.

With the 5th house, you are just as focused on the future as in the 11th house. Though, this is on a personal level giving a reason for speculation. The 5th house creates an individual who has developed the confidence to explore and develop their talents.  The 5th house and the 11th house both are houses of individuality, but the 5th house is fixed on self-development.

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

5th House   Leo         Sun          Fire           Succedent        Fixed        Masculine

6th House  Virgo      Mercury   Earth       Cadent             Mutable   Feminine

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.

Mercury

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun in our solar system, with an extremely thin atmosphere not doing much to protect it from the Sun’s rays and flare. Its named after Romes God Mercury the trickster god of thieves, moving through the veil, and male virility who enjoys the company of man more than that of the gods. This small planet orbits the sun in about 88 days, 87.97 to be more accurate, staying in one sign from two weeks to one month depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Mercury is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, retrograde, or direct.

In astrology, this planet governs communication, thinking, peers, and cunning. It rules Gemini and Virgo, Exalted in Virgo, Falls in Pisces, and is debilitated in Sagittarius. Mercury is about obtaining knowledge through curiosity, again, governing two signs Gemini, gaining information and Virgo- breaking down that information. It rules over the third house of short travel, peers, communication, and sixth house of open enemies, health, and routine. The two elements attributed to Mercury air and earth showing in astrology this planet is about logic and practicality. Mercury’s mode is mutable meaning the characteristics of Mercury are fickle, cunning, detached, and always adjusting to change. When Mercury aspects a planet it adds Gemini or Virgo qualities to that plant. For example, Venus/Mercury aspects can give eloquence with speech, value logic and reason, learning skills, love of talking and being social with peers, dating multiple people at once or serial dating, and lends to noticing details and/or being critical of those in your personal relationship. Mercury/Moon aspects give a busy mind, nervous thoughts/emotions, need for talk and communication for comfort, wanting to move around, or traveling short distances for emotional stability.

Mercury dominant people, for the most part, are curious, leans towards intellectualism, tend to be lean and wiry, with long limbs or fingers. Mercury gives a need for people to build and gain skills, most of the time it is hard for Mercury dom people to stick to one thing.

Alchemically The symbolic meaning of Mercury is shown in the three elements of dark matter as Spirit. The glyph is composed of the crescent, circle the ego, and cross showing the connection of the mind and self on the physical and spiritual. Think of this a moving through the vail and bring your thoughts from the mental or spiritual to the mundane/physical. The metal for Mercury is quicksilver, the day is Wednesday, the finger it rules is the pinky finger. As for the Body, mercury rules the arms and hands.

The Planets!!!!

Western astrology is a geocentric alchemical art relating the zodiac and movement of the planets to what happens here on earth. Astrology goes with one of the universal laws, the law of correspondence. Modern astrology has 10 planets with the Sun and Moon considered as planets. Here is a list of those planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto. Each planet governs either one or two zodiac signs. Within astrology, it is good to know there are 7 traditional and 3 modern planets. Now, the next few sentences bleed into occult and alchemy but as this blog progresses, it will make sense. The traditional planets rules correlate to the 7 vowels- a, e, i, o, u, w, y; The 7 days of the week starting with the Moon in the U.S.- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday; and the 8 octaves C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C beginning and ending with Saturn.

So let’s talk more about the 7 traditional planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Five out of the seven planets rule two zodiac signs giving a masculine and feminine quality to those five astrological planets. Mercury has Gemini as the masculine and Virgo as the feminine. Venus has Libra as the masculine and Taurus as the feminine. Mars has Aries as the masculine and Scorpio as the Feminine. Jupiter has Sagittarius as the masculine and Pisces as the feminine. Saturn has Aquarius as the masculine and Capricorn as the feminine.  Only those five planet ruling two signs are able to go retrograde- an easy way to explain retrograde planets are expressed in the feminine aspect, or the planet turned inward, with a Saturnian quality to them. I will elaborate more when I get to the retrograde planet blogs. The Sun and Moon only rule one sign each, Leo and Cancer respectively.  Also, they will never go retrograde. This is because the Sun and Moon are already internal in us.  The Sun being the Ego while the Moon the inner mind and emotions.

The Modern system has the additional three outer planets: Uranus ruling Aquarius only, Neptune ruling Pisces only, and Pluto ruling Scorpio only.  Retrogrades with these planets make the energies of them difficult to express and stronger in our lives. It is good to know these are very slow moving planets. Because they move so slow they stay in a zodiac sign long enough to affect generations of people. Hence why they are also called generational planets.  Each planet governs an aspect of society at large. Uranus shows how a generation, or a person changes and rebels bringing in a new era. Neptune is the unconscious influence of a society. Pluto is the destructive or transformative aspect of a society.

That is all for the intro of the Planets.  I can’t wait to get into the details of each and every one of them!!!!
